The ClarkBackwards boycott list.

Here's a list of businesses that will never be getting a dime from me, taken off the PDC's for the ClarkBackward's group:

Any business owned or invested in by Ed Lynch.























I'm writting in Tiffany Couch for Auditor instead of Kimsey.

I'm sorry I didn't think of this sooner, but I am sick of Greg Kimsey's lies and support of the Charter.

I wish I'd have thought of this earlier, but I've thought of it now.

Write in Tiffany Couch for county auditor.

Royce Pollard kills any chance for Monica Stonier: lies about his vote

Twice this morning out here in the deep, dark 18th district, I've gotten robo-called by this clown: the kiss of death to any chance she had to win this race against Lynda Wilson.

Why Stonier would have a wing-nut buffoon loathed by so many in the 17th for his CRC/Loot Rail, downtown mafia fetish shill for her is a mystery to me.

This is former mayor of America’s Vancouver Royce Pollard.  I’m calling to ask you to vote for Monica Stonier for state representative.

Monica already has a record of working across the aisle to get things done and kept her word NOT to vote for tax increases.

Isn’t it nice to have a politician we can count on?

Join me and vote Monica Stonier for state representative before November 4th.

This call was paid for by the elect Monica Stonier campaign
As near as I can tell, No Choice Royce doesn't live in the 17th, he lives in the 49th.

Check it out yourself:  Pollard is registered to vote at

24 Apr 1939

Go here and plug in his name, and then click on "legislative candidates."  You'll see that he lives in the 49th District.

According to the Secretary of State's web site, how can he vote for Monica Stonier?

Pollard is a liar with this robo-call.  And how sad is it that they're reduced to lying?

And to think: this clown was a United States Army officer.  Well, both Stonier and Pollard have sunk to new levels, even for him.

Democrats send voters threatening letters.

Looks like democrats are trying to become the new political ISIS:

Democrats: Vote or we’ll kick your ass

Democrats are telling voters that they had better head to the polls — or else.

The New York State Democratic Committee is bullying people into voting next week with intimidating letters warning that it can easily find out which slackers fail to cast a ballot next Tuesday.

“Who you vote for is your secret. But whether or not you vote is public record,” the letter says.

“We will be reviewing voting records . . . to determine whether you joined your neighbors who voted in 2014.”

It ends with a line better suited to a mob movie than a major political party: “If you do not vote this year, we will be interested to hear why not.”
This takes a special kind of scum.  The democrat kind.

Dems experience massive pucker factor.

So who should vote in this election?

As just about everybody in the local area is aware, we have an election coming up, and the ballots have already arrived.

So the question becomes: who should be voting?

In an ideal world, everybody who's eligible to vote, should vote. But this is hardly an ideal world.

If you are eligible to vote, legally, then by all means vote… If… IF... You know what the hell you're voting about.

The parties, naturally, would just love to have us vote for everybody who's got an R after their name, (And the fringe-left nutjobs a "D,") and typically the incumbent if you have more than one are running, and more than one D running.

I am long since past that. For me, and I make no bones about it, my default mode is to be favorable towards Republican candidates. But I never blindly vote for anyone, and I certainly am not going to vote for someone just because they got an R after their name.

Just for one example, I am voting for neither the Democrat or the Republican in this year's congressional race; neither one are fit for elective office at any level.  I'm going to pass on the 18th District Seat 1 race, as neither Vick nor Briggs should, politically, be allowed out without a keeper.

So, pick up your ballot… And look at it. If you look at a race, and you don't know the issues… And you don't know the candidates… Do us all a favor and don't vote.

As an American citizen, you have a right to vote.  But you also have a duty to be informed before you vote.

Clearly, far too many people vote based on innocuous and unimportant issues instead of policy and political record.  They limit their research to the voter pamphlet.  They ask their friends.  They might even look at a few web pages or facebook posts.

That's not nearly enough.

For example, do you know that the majority of those shilling the charter are the same scum that attempted to ram the CRC/Loot Rail project down our throats?

Did you know that Craig Pridemore played a HUGE roll in selling us out to Portland on the CRC Scam?

Perhaps you do.  But it's likely that you don't because it's hardly the thing that slimeball is going to brag about on his web page.

But it's true: he didn't care what we had to say about the CRC... and those shilling this charter don't care what we've got to say now as long as this idiocy is voted in.

You have to dig down deep to know these people.  Make the time.  FIND the time.  Do the right thing.

And if you DON'T know... then don't vote.  Simple, really.

Neo-communists gone wild: even Bully Winningham gets it.

Look, I've got to tell you: when even Bully Winningham peels off your childish crap, perhaps you should reconsider?

This is the kind of things the neo-communist running the local democrats think is cute.

Even Winningham, as staunch a leftist I've ever seen, gets it.  That the leftist party DOESN'T, just goes to show how out of touch they are with the people of this county.

For the first (and perhaps the only) time I agree with Bully:

This kind of thing IS childish, and the local fringe left nutjobs (Heywood, you reading this) DO condone this kind of behavior.

I believe our local leftist haters have badly miscalculated about Commissioner Madore.  We're going to find out in 5 days or so.

But in the end, if this sort of thing was being done to leftist signs... say, "endorsed by Jim Moeller," they'd be freaking out over it.

Leftist hypocrisy: it's what's for dinner.

And the hypocrite of the election goes to:

It's a tie between C3G2 and the daily democratian.

They both share the same leftist hatred to be sure: they're SOOOO concerned about where the money is coming from when it concerns someone to the right of Karl Marx politically.

But when it comes to their own side of the spectrum?

Nothing.  No concern.  No public examination.

We now know the lie about the falsely-named C3G2 cabal: it would have been more aptly named "All Hate for Madore, All the Time" or something similar.

Both the slime at C3G2 and the little worm running the democratian have attempted to rivet attention to David Madore, the leftist's local political anti-Christ.

And in doing that, they've essentially ignored funding for leftist candidates.

The rag's seminal and despicable work, a screed entitled "Who owns Stewart" was the kind of hatred and manure the cancer on our community has been troweling out for the most part during every one of the 26 years I've been unfortunate enough to be exposed to their Goebbelian propaganda as a part of living around here.

The failure of the haters at the C3G2 conclave and democratian to cast the same critical eye at ALL candidates, including Monica Stonier who has charged unions over $400,000 to buy HER is the basis for the glaring and gapping hole in anything approaching "integrity," as forgotten at C3G2 as journalism is at the daily democratian.

Their institutional double standard combined with their obsession to regain power on the county commission (Which is what's driving all this hatred) makes this a no-brainer:

The Hypocrite of the year award is a joint presentation to the fake Clark County Citizens to Bring Down Madore and the ubiquitous Daily Democratian.

And frankly, I fervently hope they choke on it next Tuesday night.

More rank hypocrisy from Mussolini Mikey.

I get that Mussolini Mikey is going to get clobbered by a lightweight like Lumpy Vick.

But this kind of hypocritical crap didn't work for Bully Winningham and it's not going to work for him.

Nah... there's no voter fraud: except in these states:

Voter I.D. laws by state - Proving that you can vote

Voter identification laws vary by state - some requiring proof of identity at election polls. Virginia is now one of seven states where voters must present a photo ID.

Voter I.D. laws by state

"No choice" Royce Pollard breaking PDC law?

So, two of the local CRC Scamming morons were so upset by getting their political heads kicked in over the $200 million CRC Scam that they set up leftist-front Hate PACS.

One, Paul Montague, continues to be the buffoon he was when he was running Identity Vancouver and lying about the CRC Scam.

His "PAC is a joke: $650 in the several months it's been around, board members and Montague himself responsible for most of that; they'll have no impact on this cycle, or likely any other given what a joke he is personally and whaqt a joke his Hate PAC is.

The second is "No Choice" Royce.

No Choice's Hate PAC, "Clark County is not for sale (Except to well-off leftists)" has put together around $20,000 or so from the usual leftist funders and Madore haters.

Where the violation of the law likely comes in, according to a call to the PDC, is this:

What they're telling me is that you can't bundle vendors.

So, print here is one vender; postage is another: specifically, the United State Postal Service.

Also, they must identify that the expenditure as in either support of or opposition to a candidate or initiative.

This isn't a big mailer by any means: in fact, it's a total waste of money... but these people hate so deeply that they're willing to waste thousands because of it.

That seems to be the meme with the left.

Law is inconvenient?

Screw the law.

Well, here it is.  Ponder this as you vote.

More on Michelle Obama's school lunch hypocrisy: It's what's for dinner.

One of the many reasons the Obama's are worthless generally is not only that the president lies like most people breath, but that his wife's rank hypocrisy is impacting millions of children across the country: The Klingon Princess's rank hypocrisy on the school lunch issue.

Ever since that unfortunate day when she took up residence in the White House with that incompetent buffoon of a president, she has been meddling in the affairs of parents and schools across this country.

Chickasha lunchStudent’s photo of skimpy Michelle O school lunch sparks outrage

CHICKASHA, Okla. – Lunch meat, a couple of crackers, a slice of cheese and two pieces of cauliflower qualified as lunch in Chickasha Public Schools Monday. Student Kaytlin Shelton took a photo of the skimpy lunch and showed it to her parents.                    
“It makes me want to take that and take it to the Superintendent and tell him to eat it for lunch,” the girl tells Fox 25. 
"I could pay a dollar for a Lunchable and get more food in it,” her father, Vince Holton, says. 
Shelton is pregnant and eating for two, complicating the problem. Chickasha superintendent David Cash agrees the skimpy lunches need to be addressed. 

"You've got in some cases little kids that they’re only two meals are breakfast and lunch at school and they’re getting you know a grand total of 1100 calories. That’s not enough,” Cash says.
And the latest idiocy?

Here ya go.

Chicken Wings and Chips for Lunch at Sidwell Friends
J. Christian AdamsBioOctober 28, 2014 - 11:07 am
Share on facebookShare on twitterShare on emailShare on pinterest_shareMore Sharing Services421Email Print Decrease Font Size Increase Font Size While Michelle Obama’s skimpy school lunch mandates have been widely rejected by students and schools, the elite private school attended by both Obama daughters will be serving chicken wings and potato chips on Wednesday. 
Sidwell Friends is the elite private school with a $36,264 tuition per child where President Obama sent his daughters instead of Cardozo high school, a government-run school in Washington, D.C. 
After Wednesday’s chicken wings, on Thursday Obama’s daughters can get a Cuban sandwich.  
Pasco County Schools in Florida had to eliminate Cuban sandwiches because they violated Michelle Obama’s lunch standards. 
Land O’ Lakes High had gone one better, pressing its own Cuban sandwiches that definitely exceed the calorie limits, she said. 
“No way can we fit Cubans on the menu any more,” Hedine said. 

p Next week, students at Sidwell Friends can enjoy Philly Cheese Steaks; and they will have meatball submarines the following week.  
Veterans Day is not a holiday at Sidwell Friends, and beef nachos are on the menu.  Nachos, wings, chips and cheesesteaks – lunch fare most American kids can only dream about now.  

Related at the PJ Tatler: “Let Them Eat Chicken Wings: Obama Girls Exempt from Michelle’s School Lunch Edicts?
Don't get me wrong:  The pursuit of fitness and better eating along with the battle against obesity are certainly laudable goals.

But the idea that Michelle Obama, who knows as much about diet in school children as her husband knows about foreign affairs, would demand that we feed our children one way while she ignores her own edicts and feeds her own children another way?

Screw that.

Leadership includes the art of setting the example.  You want us to do "X," then you'd better be doing "X" as well.

The First Hypocrite wouldn't think of it.

Three I won't vote for: Van Nortwick, Lasher and Kimsey.

There was an article today in the Lazy C that detailed these three whining about getting a pay raise to the county commissioners.

Well, screw that.

Here's my take:
  • The reason I disagree with these three is they're not speaking out of the best interests of the people: they're speaking for the best interests of themselves.

    Like teachers, they knew what the job paid when they took it. If it didn't pay enough, then they should go look for work elsewhere.

    Kimsey, who should be recalled over his multiple violations of the law with his voter pamphlet hijinks, isn't lacking respect because he's not making even more than the $100K he's being paid. Far from it.

    If these three don't like the pay, then certainly they can feel free to resign.

    I will never vote for any of them anyway.
It never ceases to amaze me that government workers, elected, appointed or otherwise, seem incapable of determining the pay of their position BEFORE they take it.

I don't care that people working for you may get paid more.  That's your problem.

Happens all the time in, say, professional sports where their players are frequently paid much more than their coaches or general manager.

If your subordinates get paid more, then feel free to apply for their job when next they come open.

Meanwhile, if your 6 figure check isn't enough, then feel free to quit.

Someone will be along directly to take your job.

Who owns Monica Stonier? Why doesn't the democratian care?

Stonier of course wants to come across as anything but what she is: just another fringe-left nut job.

Simply stated, a vote for Stonier is the same as a vote for Jim "Molehill" Moeller and the leftist whack jobs who run the democrats in the Legislature.

So, as a public service, I am going to list the groups who absolutely endorse Stonier, since she's too afraid to do it.

Of course Stonier is a WEA hack: they've dumped $300,000 plus into her race: the democratian doesn't give a damn, but then. as a fringe-left democrat newsletter, I don't suppose they would.

$330,000 has been spent on independent expenditures for Stonier by various unions.

The Tribes and the unions own Stonier like the 13th Amendment was the 13th Suggestion.


DIME PAC - $38,000



Most of the donors below maxed out to Monica.

AMALGAMATED TRANSIT UNION (TriMet's bus driver's union)

Unions own Monica Stonier.  The Scum at the democratian don't care.  And their double standard reeks.

Here's why our local fringe-left whackos don't talk about any alternative to the CRC Scam.... Because it's still very much alive.

Gee, you suppose this why the democratian supports Herrera? She was in the project's back pocket.

And this is why the democrats only wanted to babble about this rip-off and grenade any other alternative.

Billionaire Enviro Could Revive the Columbia River Crossing Project

lede_3917_(crc_bw)The Proposed Columbia River Crossing - IMAGE:
A billionaire California environmentalistwho is on track to spend more than $50 million of his fortune to help make climate change a major issue in the Nov. 4 elections could inadvertently trigger the re-start of theColumbia River Crossing project, a deal Oregon enviros have widely panned. 
Hedge fund billionaire Thomas Steyer is targeting climate change deniers across the country, including in legislative races. In Oregon, his political action committee,Nextgen Climate Action, has given $70,000 to Oregon League of Conservation Voters
The New York Times reports that Steyer has bigger goals.
"The effort by a California billionaire named Thomas F. Steyer to bolster global climate change measures in Washington has turned the battle over the State Senate into one of the most expensive legislative elections in state history," theTimes reports. "The Democrats need a net gain of two seats to achieve a Senate majority, and Mr. Steyer’s political action committee, Nextgen Climate Action, has contributed $1.25 million to that goal."
If Steyer is successful up north, he could help give Democrats enough votes in the Washington legislature to bring back the $3.2 billion Columbia River Crossing, a project that Oregon's leading environmental groups, including the Oregon League of Conservation Voters and 1000 Friends of Oregon, worked to kill last year.

The CRC would deliver a new freeway and light rail connection between Portland and Vancouver, Wash., and replace troublesome I-5 interchanges in both cities. 
See, all that whining about Madore is nothing but bright, shiny object politics.  They don't care that one of their own is trying to buy the legislature.  Imagine the sniveling that would be going on if it were the Koch Brothers.

An appropriate musical interlude for the upcoming election.

Charter Scammers so desperate, they violate PDC law: Gary Lucas breaks the law on a mailer.

The law on using your office to support or oppose a ballot measure is fairly clear, clear enough that even a political moron like Lucas understands it.

Here's the law:
42.17A.550  <<  42.17A.555 >>   42.17A.560

RCW 42.17A.555

Use of public office or agency facilities in campaigns — Prohibition — Exceptions.

No elective official nor any employee of his or her office nor any person appointed to or employed by any public office or agency may use or authorize the use of any of the facilities of a public office or agency, directly or indirectly, for the purpose of assisting a campaign for election of any person to any office or for the promotion of or opposition to any ballot proposition. Facilities of a public office or agency include, but are not limited to, use of stationery, postage, machines, and equipment, use of employees of the office or agency during working hours, vehicles, office space, publications of the office or agency, and clientele lists of persons served by the office or agency. However, this does not apply to the following activities:

     (1) Action taken at an open public meeting by members of an elected legislative body or by an elected board, council, or commission of a special purpose district including, but not limited to, fire districts, public hospital districts, library districts, park districts, port districts, public utility districts, school districts, sewer districts, and water districts, to express a collective decision, or to actually vote upon a motion, proposal, resolution, order, or ordinance, or to support or oppose a ballot proposition so long as (a) any required notice of the meeting includes the title and number of the ballot proposition, and (b) members of the legislative body, members of the board, council, or commission of the special purpose district, or members of the public are afforded an approximately equal opportunity for the expression of an opposing view;

     (2) A statement by an elected official in support of or in opposition to any ballot proposition at an open press conference or in response to a specific inquiry;

     (3) Activities which are part of the normal and regular conduct of the office or agency.

     (4) This section does not apply to any person who is a state officer or state employee as defined in RCW 42.52.010.
So, when Lucas starts his babble with "As your sheriff," this is, by black letter law, an obvious PDC violation:

Apparently, the fat went to his head.

Fortunately, that Lucas says this is a good idea is driven by HIS hatred of Madore as well.  And frankly, I don't believe anyone cares.

But breaking the law?

By a sheriff?

Typically fringe-left pap.

What is it with democrats and bigotry? Are they that desperate?

Look.... I get that part of the illegal alien shtick is that the democrats believe they've got the illegal alien vote nailed down: that's why they freak out over efforts to prove citizenship and identification to be able to vote in this country... because God forbid that you have to at least provide the same level of ID needed to vote that you'd need to cash a welfare check... but what is it with this democrat bigotry?

Democrats were a major player in the days of and the organization of the Klan.  After all, their sainted Robert Byrd was a Grand Dragon is memory serves.

But between the hatred and bigotry of our own democrat front group of the laughingly-so-called Clark County Citizens for Good Governance over Christians generally and David Madore in particular.... and democrats in the Federal Way Mark Miloscia race here within the last few days.... and now, this:

GOP Senate Candidate Called 'Uncle Tom' at Hillary/Hagan Rally in N.C.

9:15 AM, Oct 28, 2014 • By DANIEL HALPER             
Republican Senate candidate Thom Tillis was called "Uncle Tom" at a recent Senator Kay Hagan rally in North Carolina. Hillary Clinton was also on hand to help rally Democrats in support of Hagan--and the possible presidential candidate specifically praised the speaker who made the questionable comments. 
The remarks were from Alma Adams, who is running for Congress from North Carolina's 12th Congressional District. Here's audio:

"We need to send Uncle Tom -- Tillis, that is -- home," she told the crowd to cheers and applause. 
When it was Hillary Clinton's turn to speak, she had the highest praise for Adams, who just moments earlier used the questionable phrase about Hagan's Republican opponent.

"Let me add Alma Adams," Clinton said after praising Hagan at length, "because we need more women like her in Congress. We need her compassion and her common sense. We need her sartorial excellence. She's going to shake things up. I think the Kay-Alma combination is really going to put North Carolina ahead of the parade." 
The comments were made over the weekend, but went unnoticed. 
Daniel Halper is author of Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.
Why is it the left is comfortable with this plantation mentality and they feel free to engage in this sort of thing with impunity?

Can you even begin to imagine the left's faux outrage if a Republican had babbled like that and a major Republican candidate had responded like Hillary?

If you thought C3G2 was the only leftist hate site, you'd be wrong: More democrat bigotry, this time in Federal Way.

A Republican candidate for state Senate in Washington was slammed for his Catholic views in an anonymous flyer that says he "has always worn his church on his sleeve" and has best represented the people of "the Vatican."

Leftists, just like the scum in the C3G2 put this garbage out in opposition to GOP Senate candidate Mark Miloscia in Federal Way.

This is the kind of filth local leftists rely on with their religious bigotry as a part of their attacks against David Madore.

This is the kind of thing they do.

Remember this when this kind of scum tell you how much the Charter does for you... instead of telling you what it's going to do TO you.

When fringe-leftist nutter Joel Connelly calls you out for your ad, you know you've gone over the line.
"The bigoted anti-Catholic posting has been deleted. Still, it ranks as the nastiest single attack of Washington’s 2014 campaign. Whatever the intent of site authors, they’ve bolstered Miloscia’s argument that the Democratic Party no longer welcomes someone who is socially conservative."
On C3G2, they call that "Monday."

My vote: Legislative

Area Legislators.

49th District:  Anybody but the democrats.

It is to our misfortune that Jim "Molehill" Moeller was elected to anything past 3rd grade hall monitor.

Best known legislatively for that idiotic "this is, this isn't" candy tax that was slaughtered at the polls statewide, and for suing his own constituents for passing the 2/3rd's tax increase vote requirement.

I DO give Molehill credit for pitbulling the CRC Scam.  Where I fault him is his arrogance and the fact that he shared John Laird's view of CRC Scam opponents as cockroaches.

There is no more arrogant, self-reverential putz in the legislature.  He's affixed his fangs to the taxpayer's jugular and sucks every nickel he can out of our veins in per diem.

He is the very model of the democrat mantra as expressed by democrat former Commissioner Steve Stuart:
"And I've said it before: I don't speak for the people.. I will NEVER speak for "the people," I speak for Steve and some of you are going to agree with me and some of you aren't."
Just like every other elected democrat legislator around here.

The people are frequently meaningless impediments to the agenda of the left.  Even after the overwhelming vote in his own district against the CRC Scam, he made it clear he could care less what they thought.

How such narcissistic, non-responsive arrogance continues to get re-elected is beyond me.

Voting any democrat into a House seat just helps provide the Seattle neo-communists running the House with another vote for leadership and their effort to turn this state into the Washington Soviet... which is, of course, reason enough by itself to vote against them.

17th District: Wilson.

Of the three remaining candidates in these two House races, Wilson is the only one I would vote for.

Regardless of how Monica Stonier portrays herself, and the $430,000 dumped into her race by HER owners that the rag doesn't care about because, well, that's "different," Stonier represents another vote for the fringe-leftist whack jobs running the House.  As previously stated, that by itself is reason enough to vote against her.  The democratian's snit over how much and who funded Stewart aside, their complete and hypocritical lack of concern over Stonier's funding notwithstanding, voting Stonier back in is just voting another fringe-leftist CRC whiner back into office who has, locally, dedicated her political career to being a buttboy for the WEA and throwing grenades at any effort to address our cross-river transportation issues, not unlike Molehill's mission in life.

Wilson is the real deal, a genuine person and a conservative businesswoman to be respected and admired.

Paul Harris has done next to nothing to help her with Stonier.  He's given the King County GOP $5000 to help Cathy Dahlquist get rid of Sen. Pam Roach in a Republican on Republican race, and he has yet to help Wilson in any measurable way.

I will not support him because of his abandonment of Harris as he maneuvers himself to be the titular replacement for Don Benton should, as rumors persist, he resign at some point because Harris, falsely as it turns out, believes that he would be appointed in Benton's place.

He should have worked harder than Liz Pike to get Wilson elected.  And when needed, he was nowhere to be found.

18th District: Pike.

Rep. Liz Pike is going to be reelected, the only question is "will Liz break 60%"

Neither of the democrats should be allowed to represent a dog food vendor at Westminster.  Bully Loserham is a liar of essentially psychopathic proportion; a hypocrite of the highest order, attacking Liz for taking money from the same people that at least 30 House democrats have, including Jim "Molehill" Moeller.

Mussolini Mikey Briggs is as much a fringe-left nutjob as his hero, Molehill Moeller.

Both could care less what the districts wants: both a OCD over the CRC Scam and could care less that the people of this district hate that project as much as either of these two clowns hate telling the truth.

Neither will respond to questions posed by prospective constituents, both are more than willing to bend us over for the unions and the WEA on McCleary, both are rabid charter supporters and both would kill their children, rhetorically speaking, to get a state income tax in screwing us would all be in a day's work.

Brandon Vick has proven himself to be utterly worthless, mailing it in since we were unfortunate enough for him to be elected.

Lazy, unconcerned and something of a liar himself, Vick, who failed to introduce a single piece of legislation for the entirety of his first year in office, thereby making him as useful as a brick, has made a big deal out of allegedly being on six committees, when he knows damned well that once session starts, he'll be lucky to have three... but oddly, he doesn't feel compelled to tell anyone that.

He's on these 6 committees... sorta... as a way to counter his sitting around for the entirety of his first year and doing nothing.  His claim that he's "never missed a vote" is as much a lie as it was when Jaime Herrera used it back when she was in the legislature.

Computers don't care who pushes the button as long as the button was getting pushed.

Vick isn't fit to be elected dog catcher: they don't call him Lumpy up there for nothin'.

Liz Pike has earned our respect and admiration.  She's a fighter and unlike the other 3, isn't afraid to mix it up.  She fought the CRC for months and Vick, being Vick, was nowhere to be found in that fight: too easy to let others do the fighting for us, and besides, don't want to piss off the democratian, right, Lumpy?

Pike has fought for the people on a long and hard basis.  She will continue to do that much like Lumpy will continue to mail it in.  She has worked VERY hard to help Lynda Wilson get elected (Unlike either Vick OR Harris) in addition to running her own campaign and dealing with the major injuries sustained by her own Legislative Assistant, Garrett Delano.

The current incumbents in the 14th and the 20th are all going to be re-elected.

My vote: congressional.

Vote: Neither.

I have made my disdain known over the cardboard cut out of a congresswoman we have now.  The problem here is that her opponent is no better.

Jaime Herrera Beutler epitomizes just about everything that is bad about Congress.

Her Number One focus is to gain re-election, period.  She does and says as little as humanly possible; misleads and prevaricates as much as she can and during the entirety of her worthless tenure, she has refined her skills in the fine art of "bright, shiny object" politics to a fine art.

In everything from using her sick infant as a self-serving campaign prop to lacking the courage to hold open town hall meetings, Herrera has been an abysmal waste of time in Congress, limiting her representation to the special interests who own here like the 13th Amendment was the 13th Suggestion.

Name the subject, and you're likely NOT going to know what her position on that subject is or what she's going to do about it.

Herrera, for example, did absolutely nothing about the CRC/Loot Rail scam even though she's been in office at both the local and congressional level since late 2007.  That's seven YEARS to act: and we get nothing from her.

You would expect that Herrera, a bright-appearing, young female half-Hispanic would be front and center as part of the House team.  After all, she claims a Communications degree from the UW (And considering how little she actually does communicate with her constituency, there's a certain irony to that) so you'd think she'd be ideal as a GOP talking head.

The problem here is that while she's on the fly, her biggest problem is an innate ability to jam her foot in her mouth up to her ankle.

They keep her away from the cameras and the tough questions for a reason: she's the local version of Joe Biden and if you take her script away from her, she comes across like a blithering idiot with a spine made out of Jello.

In a time when we need courageous representation that communicates with us on a regular basis about the issue confronting us, when we need someone who'll take the lead on any number of the issues confronting us at both a national and local level, Herrera is nowhere to be found.

She's fooled enough people for now that she's safe.  Her inaction and decision to ignore her constituency regarding our overwhelming enmity towards the CRC rip off is countered by letters and vague press-releases she's had written, and even though she got her political face kicked in by the slimy mayor of the Vancouver Soviet, in the end, SHE did NOTHING of the many things she COULD have done to kill this project... forcing local elected officials including Sen. Ann Rivers, Rep. Liz Pike and others to do the heavy lifting that Ridgefield Barbie SHOULD have done with a 10-minute memo to House leadership.

Initially lied about by the democratian who wrongly portrayed her as a "young, family values conservative," the Camas Manikin has thrown the country under the bus by caving on the debt ceiling, and has thrown veterans under the bus with her vote to cut both veteran's retirement and veteran's disability... and morphed into what the daily democrat refers to as a "Republican moderate."  Her failure to take any meaningful actions in opposition to the rag's agenda has earned her their support... which, for many of us, is just another reason to oppose her.

She's unfit to hold office, and has far exceeded my expectations as to exactly how worthless she would be in office... because as low as the bar is set... and it's set pretty low... she comes nowhere near clearing it.

So, that would lead many to believe that I must support her opponent: Bob Dingethal.

If so, "many" would be wrong.

A paltry 323 days ago, I asked Dingethal what his positions concerning the CRC/loot rail scam, the repeal of the hated Obamacare, and where he was at on cutting veteran's retirement and disability.

Only 323 days.

And I'm not the only one.  Lew Waters has ALSO run into Dingethal's inexplicable failure to respond to our questions.

There's a certain irony to that, as well.

In the "issues" section on Dingethal's website, this section is there.  Like everything else he's babbling about on that page, it's full of glittering generalities that signify nothing.  No plan, no clue.

Doing right by our veterans today is doing the right thing for all of us tomorrow…Read More
*I'M*a Veteran.  How is ignoring us treating us with "honor and respect?"

In short, neither one of these two are worth a vote.  As a result, I will be voting for neither and giving Mickey Mouse the nod.

County, legislative and initiative/prop votes to come.
