Welcome to the new State of Washington

June 29th, 2020 by Ken

Those of us here in Washington State should say hello to the new State of Washington.

That’s right, the Democratic controlled House of Representatives has passed a bill making Washington DC the 51st state of the United States.  It’s name – – The State of Washington Douglass Commonwealth.  (In honor of Frederick Douglass).

There’s no doubt that when the Democrats gain control of the US Senate after this fall’s election, the bill will be passed in that chamber as well and we’ll have the 51st State – and the new State of Washington.

When that happens, our Democratic Senators should add an amendment to the bill that will change the name of our state to Columbia.  That was the original name when we applied for territorial status and was changed by Congress at the time to Washington.

It’s time to change it back.  After next year I expect to live in the State of Columbia.
