(Music) Is A Moral Law


I like to listen to music when I’m writing- but we’ll get to that in a moment.

I was a musician and played the guitar for many years, so rock and roll was a very big part of my life. No matter where I am  or what I’m doing there’s music around me somewhere.

Here’s area few songs I enjoy listening to because they sort of reach into my brain and heart and flip the switches on:


Sometimes I like to listen to a song for the fun of it, it just zips along and I go with it and sing really loud- of course I can’t sing but who cares?

Classical Music speaks to me, I get it it”s like poetry all of those parts add up to an image or a feeling.

But that doesn’t mean you can’t have fun with it and it doesn’t have to make sense.

Some songs just make me say, ” Hell Yeah!”

” Victoria” by Ray Davies is for no one reason, ” my song. ”

I’m going to let you in on a secret about what what I listen to when I’m writing- the soundtrack to every word I have ever written.

What I am listening to right now.

In fact, if you read something of mine you can be sure I was listening to this band when I was writing:

One good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain.

Bob Marley

Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.


I look at you and I write down what I hear.

Take It For The Team

I have written at great length about the negative, hateful and personal attacks that Guy Palumbo waged against my family in seeking election to become Washington State  Senator for the First Legislative District.

Its an attack his supporters feel necessary to still wage despite the fact Luis is not running against Palumbo now.

Regardless of that fact, recently at a political meeting one of Palumbo’s supporters ( who also is a State Committee Man for our District)was saying “Moscoso needs to stop beating women”

Palumbo for his own special reasons has chosen to continue to spread these libelous claims. Perhaps he feels it is necessary to diminish Luis in order to elevate his own standing.

As it stands, Palumbo’s character and integrity is being questioned now and wherever he ends up after November 8th it will continue to be questioned.

I am sure that most of this bile is rising up in the throats of Palumbo’s ‘supporters’  because our family did not take to our knee for Palumbo and joyfuly endorse and work to seeing him be elected.

This is the mindset that we’ve been faced with by a few party loyalists who apparently care more about gaining a seat then who is sitting in it.
Again my family who as individuals are still having to deal with Palumbo’s Dirty Campaign tactics are being called upon again to “take it for the team” by a  Palumbo Supporter:



Rep. Luis Moscoso Responds to the above comment:

 It’s amazing that anyone would consider my refusal to support Guy Palumbo as a “protest vote” or a “grudge.” Guy Palumbo took the 1st LD Democratic Senate Primary into the gutter with his scurrilous rumors about me and my extended family.

As to concerns about the “policies actually at stake” – when were they ever truly addressed? There was no candidate debate or forum. Just lies – yes, “LIES” – by Palumbo, his LD supporters and his Charter School PAC financiers.

My integrity and the Truth is more important to me than just winning a Senate seat for an unscrupulous politician who pretends to be a Democrat.


In closing I would like to state the obvious:

Anyone who demands that one puts FAMILY  AFTER  political rhetoric needs to check their priorities or lack thereof.

Palumbo has no right to demand a vote, an endorsement party loyalty or call upon anybody to do anything  for the greater good when he so clearly lacks the ability to DO THIS HIMSELF.

Every vote counts and I voted and endosed the better candidate for the right reasons.

May you be free to do the same.

A.M. Moscoso
