The current lie de jour is a variation on the "we're all going to die if light rail isn't extended into Clark County" meme.
I say "extend light rail into Clark County" as opposed to "replace the paid for, perfectly functional bridge" because even the CRC Scammers are well aware that the ONLY reason for this bridge scam to be built is to ram light rail down our throats.
The safety argument is a lie. If the bridge was unsafe, we wouldn't be allowed to use it. Period.
And nothing that has happened to the Skagit bridge changes any of that.
Further, even it was "unsafe," that it no way means that the only solution is to replace it.
When, for example, I have my tires on my car wear out, I don't replace the entire car: I replace the tires.
But that just goes back to the primary element of deception: it isn't about safety. It isn't about earthquakes. It isn't about congestion. It isn't about freight mobility.
It is, as the Oregon State Supreme Court told us, about light rail.
The democrat running the show are foaming at the mouth. Whack jobs like Mike Briggs are exhibiting cowardly hysteria. The newspaper continues to lie and continues to try and whip up the Scammers and their supporters by trumpeting the same, old, tired lies, thoroughly disproven and utterly false in an effort to get even one senator to change their minds.
Beancaccio and the pit yorkie have lost their minds over this scam. They see the end coming, and they're acting like cut cats. But what they do is recycle the same lies... over and over and over again.
Laird, scum of the lowest order, continues to beat the anti-Benton drum, the anti-Madore drum and the anti-Mieke drum... but like I've been saying all long, none of that is going to make any difference.
Every Scammer from the whiny Mike Briggs, who appears to have lost any grip on reality in his fringe-left, partisan fugue to uber-Communist Rep. Jim "Molehill" Moeller the slimiest of the slimy, Paul Montague, Identity Clark County scum, who's lies include these beauties:
When the leading proponents of a project... or a bill... or a position... are flat out liars, then the project should not be built, the bill should not be passed and the position should be abandoned.
