So enamored with porn that he had to view it in his last gig, which was as chief propagandist for the democratian editorial page (John "Pit Yorkie" Laird was Heywood's replacement) and was subsequently fired for doing it (I guess no one else wanted the local leftist club's chairmanship... since they gave it to him) one of the things you can count on, in addition to his poor judgement, is his rank hypocrisy.
It wasn't all that long ago that our local neo-communists freaked at the very idea of a charter. This self-same Heywood babbling in the democrat swindle sheet of May, 2011:
So, now, being the highest non-elected hypocrite in local politics, what's "Heywood's Headline?"
Thursday, May 05, 2011
One thing I've come to notice over the years is precisely how much democrats think the voters are stupid... and how much they fear and despise them.
Written by Michael Heywood, who brought the same level of factuality and even-handedness to this article at The Clark County Democrat party newspaper as he did to the editorial page of the democratian before his ignominious exit, it's the kind of tripe that makes anyone remotely acquainted with politics sick.
Clark County's government structure is somewhat antique and outdated. A system invented to manage road construction and not much else in the way of governance clanks along clumsily in a high-speed era of complex and varied civic action.Democrats have, and still do, (at the time this was written) control the commission for decades. Yet, what have they done to address these shortcomings?
Streamlining and modernizing the machine appeals to the progressive psyche, but the folks who have convinced the Board of Clark County Commissioners to consider adopting a new county charter have other agenda priorities.Here. Let me help with that:
We're too clueless to offer any other alternatives, so when anyone tries to address the stupidity of the current system, we're going to attack them even before we know what their proposals are... because under the current system, we get everything we want, including a government that ignores the electorate and actively seeks to bury us under billions of dollars of debt.
They hope to give rural interests dominance over urban values. They suppose they can make it harder for county government to raise and spend money on social problems and infrastructure capital.Because we like the current urban interest's dominance over rural values. That is, we like ramming our view down their throats while doing everything we can to keep them from having a voice.
They are far away from achieving their goals, but inattention from thoughtful citizens could ease their path.God forbid that they might want to do or change anything in a way we don't like, so, you fellow neo-communists, get out there and get involved!
Without much evident public support, the charter-change advocates have persuaded the county commissioners to start the ball rolling toward charter change for the third time in recent history. In January the board formally adopted a resolution to consider a move from the present form of government to something different.Much like the moronic CRC that the fringe leftists so strongly support which has practically zero public support, and loot rail that has been crushed time and again at the polls, people who actually believe in democracy instead of giving it lip service like us actually took a run at the commissioners to see if they could present an alternative to the people.
Different how? That depends entirely on a panel of elected freeholders and how ably they can sell their program.This is an outright lie, of course.
It "depends entirely" on what the voters want at the polls.
But you see, we're too stupid to think for ourselves. That's why these slimeballs hate Tim Eyman... because all the initiatives that rein in government are HIS fault. You know, like the voters didn't have anything to do with the outcomes?
So far the county commissioners have ordained that, should the charter process go forward, each of the three commissioner districts will be represented by five freeholders who would be elected at the Nov. 8 general election. Any registered voter would be qualified to seek election to the board of freeholders. Upon their election the freeholders would establish a schedule of hearings and meetings for the consideration of what might be included in a new county charter. Upon a majority vote by the freeholders, the Board of Clark County Commissioners would be obliged by tradition if not certainly by law to lay the proposed charter before the electorate.And God help us... we simply CANNOT let the PEOPLE actually have a SAY in how their government is organized or what it does... right?
And that's the idiotic part of this. As a conservative, I welcome participation by the electorate. Leftists like those dominating our government at every level fear and despise it.
Odd, isn't it? Fringe-left nutters like Heywood HATED the very IDEA of a charter when democrats controlled the commission.
Now, with two GOP commissioners, this "...they hope to give rural interests dominance over urban values. They suppose they can make it harder for county government to raise and spend money on social problems and infrastructure capital" garbage went right out the window.
How quickly they forget.
And Heywood's take on the county executive model is sheer bullshit as well... but then, he stupidly believes that the democrats had anything to do with the bizarre outcome of stamping the seal of disapproval on their loot rail fetish while simultaneously re-electing the scum pushing it the hardest.
Heywood taking ANY credit for the outcomes in Vancouver or Battle Ground makes as much sense as that lying slimeball in the White House taking credit for fixing the economy, or making Iran get rid of nukes.
But we should all know better.
Odd, isn't it? They hated it with a passion, and along with the democratian PR machine, soundly trashed the very idea of it.
Their hatred at the success of David Madore has overcome their faux fear of "...rural interests dominance over urban values." They hate so much that there concerns of the past, which from their fringe-leftist view were perfectly valid, were suddenly rendered moot by the election of David Madore. Besides proving how shallow and politically driven they are, it shows the neo-communist thought process to a "T."
Don't like the results of an election? Can you partner with the local rag like you're sending them checks? Can you make up an issue, presuming the scumbag running the paper pounds on your target with a sledge-hammer?
Then flip your position.
It's all good, and since the scumwad running the rag was in lockstep with you while you were whining, moaning and bitching like cut cats at the very thought of doing what you rabidly support NOW will never hold you accountable... or even mention... your hypocritical flip on the issue.
Now, in the face of their abysmal failure to manufacture a reason to recall Commissioners Madore and Mielke... they seem to have settled on this variety of legal lynching.
