Today, the county commissioners sent CREDEC a message: climb off your light rail support or go without any money from us.
The people of this county, by any available measure, have made their position clear: kill... light... rail.
This naturally brought out the whiners and the hypocrites... particularly One Term Timmy "The Liar" Leave-it, who babbled thus under the article:
The CRC scam supporters are out in force, ignoring the reality, revising history, engaging in attacks that make it clear that they would ignore the wishes of thee people as well, such brighter lights as Washougal Mayor Sean "Fake Cop" Guard:
Gotta tell you, Sean... if I was Mielke, I'd be liable to throat punch you for this snide bullshit... because after your behavior with the official fake police car, you're hardly in a position to comment on the conduct, personal OR governmental, of others.
Look, Sean, before you get your panties in a bunch, try and understand:
If your little coffee klatch wants the money, then they've got play ball.
You rather stupidly advocate that the county just fork over the check and then shut the fuck up.
Well, guess what? That ain't happening. And, of course, you could always pour gasoline on your self and light it in protest. Actually, I now, officially, feel sorry for the people of Washougal that you're anywhere in government. I guess Russell was right about you after all.
The sun will come up tomorrow, somewhere. We will remain in orbit around the sun. We will will survive both this action and your over-hyped response to it.
Now, what CRUDEC, who tried to rape us all on the ballpark scam, does about this is up to them. Hopefully, the county will eliminate ALL expenditures to the various leech organizations like this one who are working so hard at cross-purposes to expressed will of the people of this county.
Everyone breathing was aware that the M&O scam tax was a proxy vote on loot rail. Even in the heretofore reliably pro-CTran gerrymandered tax-district that excluded 60 to 100 thousand rural voters from having a say.... but not from paying the tax... the voters expressed revulsion at the idea of funding this moronic program on loot rail.
The closing observation here is in response to this tripe:
In a statement released Tuesday afternoon, Bill Dudley, chairman of the CREDC Board of Directors, said, "This is a very disappointing action on the part of the Commissioners. CREDC is one of the few venues available for the private sector to partner with the public sector regarding a broad variety of important economic development issues. To withdraw support from the enterprise based on a single issue is unfortunate."Not nearly as unfortunate at that organization's continuing insistence on flipping off the voters and bill payers of Clark County, like they did in the ballpark scam.
That they insist on doing that is the message here... and it's not just limited to the CRC, although yes, that single issue more than justifies cutting off their funds.
This is a solid first step. There are more on the journey of ridding ourselves of both this project... and the scum supporting it.
Well done to our commissioners for this initial shot across the bow of the sinking CRC Leviathan.
