If only they had told the truth during the campaign.

Now that it's over, it's much easier for the haters to come out and admit the truth:

The Charter was never about what was best for us.

It was about the leftist hatred of David Madore.

In the words of fringe-left nut job Lefty Lou:
As just noted, after more than 100 years of running the county the same way, we just voted in a new form of government.
And we all have county Commissioners David Madore and Tom Mielke to thank for that. The M&M boys did a horrendous job running the county — hiring cronies, costing taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars, putting in programs that simply don't work, stuff like that.
For a moron who drove his own rag into bankruptcy and who's bleeding subscribers at a record rate, he sure seems to know a whole lot about about how others should do their business.

Ultimately, this was SUPPOSED to be about what's best for us all.  But it never was that.

And what happened to that idiotic "better representation" and "more transparency" lie?

What happened to that "it's best for us" lie?

It was precisely what I called it, now confirmed by Lefty Lou: rank, partisan hatred.

And now they think they've got what they want.  The gullible who bought into their obvious lies have saddled us with this insanity forever.

Meanwhile, Lefty Lou must lie about the cause of it: now claimed to be Madore and Mielke.

As if the lies spouted by the campaign in support of this which, the C3G2 haters never stopped telling us, had nothing at all to do with either Mielke or Madore... had nothing to do with the outcome. 

It's tough for us all when the editor of the daily democrat is also an arrogant narcissist.

For scum like Lefty, no other county administration has been anything BUT perfect.  Pure as the driven snow, in fact.  Lefty, for example, never babbles about Betty Sue or Craig's slavish devotion to the Crime Casino looming large on the horizon... the idiotic ignorance of the past commissioners on the issue of seeking the permission of the people of this county on the issues like the CRC Scam and Loot Rail... you know... "stuff like that."

No, with Lefty Lou it's his partisan payback, and the sting in his butt for managing to lose the "official" contract to the Reflector, a disaster and a blow to his paper's credibility  and prestige (Such as it was... Is there another "only-daily in the county" anywhere in the world that has lost such a contract to a weekly?) and this scumbag is using his soapbox to be the playground bully.

Until he gets HIS ass kicked.

It's cold this morning.

Leftist democratian blows it on Pentagon budget cuts: to be expected given their ignorance.

When you have a bunch of non-serving, fringe-left pogues running a newspaper, their ignorance about military budget and personnel is, I suppose to be expected.

But in their most recent "taking a stab at a subject they don't understand" effort, they actually... stupidly... claim that additional military budget cuts "make sense."

As if.  Clearly, they don't know anything more about "sense" then they do "truth."

As it is now, The militaries of China, North Korea and Russia have around 4.2 million troops on active duty, with another 3.1 million or so reservists.  That doesn't include "para military," (Likely border police and the like which typically fall under military control.)  These militaries are in the midst of full-on expansion and modernization.

The United States, for now, anyway, has something on the order of  2.25 million active and reserve. Our military, even in the middle of multiple conflicts, is being reduced in size and capability to shift those funds to social programs.  And the rag is all about that.

We have been and continue to be in the middle of numerous armed conflicts that have the advantage of providing live combat training for our military, an advantage that, for the most part, the essentially Soviet block does not have.  And the US is doing all it can to find any pretense to kick our combat core troops out.

For issues as mundane as the number of tattoos you may have, you can actually find yourself barred from first promotion and then, reenlistment.

My guess is the number, variety and location of tats didn't make a hell of a lot of difference to any of our combat dead or wounded, or any of our combat arms troops actually getting their collective asses shot at now as I type this.

The non-serving slime at the democratian are, as they so frequently are, blissfully unaware of the practical realities of what the Armed Forces are and what they do.  Were they among the whining and sniveling as they expressed faux concern over op tempo and multiple tours of combat duty overseas?

How do further cuts in personnel reduce that problem?

Reduced personnel = reduced capability.

At a time when our enemies are expanding exponentially (And let's not forget ISIS, which is doing all it can to make our sacrifice of blood and treasure in the region utterly worthless... with the help of those simple idiots in the White House) we are shrinking in personnel and capabilities geometrically.

The rag quotes such unbiased sources as the "Stockholm International Peace Research Institute." This is but another example of the fringe=-leftists running our local lamestream show.

Unfortunately, we ARE the Superpower.  And I really wouldn't have it any other way, since the alternative is too horrific to contemplate:  having a superpower or two that really, really don't like us.

And how much would THAT cost?

And as the ignorant twat waffle who wrote today's screed from the Lazy C failed to address the question: how much more will that cost us down the road than maintaining our capability and force abilities today cost us?

In the long term, we find ourselves in a situation not unlike the idiocy of the post Jimmy Carter era.

We had to spend hundreds of billions to catch up to the status we should never had left.  And the ignorant declaration that this will be, in any way, "the best long-term scenario for the nation" shows the quick assumption of amnesia so beloved by the ignorant left: a military like the one that I was in, a military that had vehicles down for months because parts weren't available, a military understrength in dozens of job skills, a military where carrier battle groups are tied up at docks because we can't afford to refuel our carriers, a military where "make-do" becomes the institutional order of the day, where training is reduced, where systems fail and become obsolete because of a lack of logistics or new systems.

Of course none of those who cared enough to serve their country in uniform are more likely to advocate this kind of stupidity.  Like every other program they've babbled extensively on and know nothing about, they won't have to live with the outcomes of their stupidity.

Further cuts breed Russian and Chinese hegemony.  Lives will be lost because of this kind of stupidity.  And the moron writing this editorial doesn't care a lick, because he's far too much of a military ignorant to have the remotest clue about what needs to be done, and what costs we're going to have to pay when they're not done... in sons... and a few daughters... in the very near future.  And you can bet that none of those sons and daughters will be those of the people who write the tripe in today's democratian.

Clearly, the mentalities of the 1930's are once again infesting the left.  And with equal clarity, they learned nothing from their low-rent isolationism of that era.
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
It's always better to maintain a capable military and stay in front then it is to play catch up from behind when the bullets start flying. But as we fall further and further behind, we'll see bus loads of the ignorants and hippies standing on the curb, holding up signs that say moronic nonsense like this:
The United States, as the world's lone superpower, frequently is a target of despots and frequently is called upon to protect nations that are unable to protect themselves.
That will never end as long as we exist.  And the sooner these clowns weaken our military, the shorter the amount of time required to end our existence.
Yet the questions become: How much is too much?
A great deal more than what we spend now.
What level of defense is required to ensure our safety?
Roughly twice the size of the shrunken military we have now... since you asked.
How extensive is our role as the world's police force?
Completely.  We have to do it because there's no one else who can. "Ask not for whom the bell tolls..."
And could some of that money be better spent elsewhere?
No.  But thanks for asking.

That is not to say we couldn't do a better job spending the money we have: of course we can.

But we're not just cutting the core of our combat experience: we're cutting systems and putting all of our eggs in a single basket on far too many occasions.

We should, for example, have long since begun a massive expansion of our Special Ops capabilities.

We should be investing heavily in our guerilla war-fighting capabilities, our ground support air and our missile defense systems.

We should be taking the steps needed to get the most effective bang for the buck.  And we should not have a coward as our commander-in-chief.

I don't expect leftist civilians to know or care about these types of things.  It would be nice, for once, if the Lazy C would bother to find out.

What they advocate is going to spill American blood.  Lots of it.

Won't be the first time, or the last, because they don't see their blood as being a part of the pool.

But it will be.  This kind of absurdity will make sure of it.

Senator Rivers and Chair Rivers: how the democratian screwed up again.

Leave it to the Lazy C to mess it up again.

Oh, I have no particular problem with the meat of the article: There's no reason why Sen. Rivers couldn't do both jobs, but Lauren Dake, who wrote this, knew that before she wrote it.  If, however, she just flat acknowledged it and moved on, that wouldn't have given her much of an excuse to contact Henricksen... and subsequently, to set her up to take a shot at Rivers.

I'd support Sen. Rivers for county chair: she would be uniquely positioned to limit the damage the C3G2-hater dream would otherwise cause this county.

I would also want her to remain in the Senate; after all, I'm in her district and she does a damned good job representing us.

No, the problem I've got with this was the stupidity of asking Nan Henricksen anything about that decision.

That Sen. Rivers could, in fact do both jobs is established law: Rivers made that clear with her reference to Sen. Tim Sheldon (D-Potlach) who has held both positions simultaneously for years.

And, while many of the conservative haters in the Freeholders attempted to implement an obviously unconstitutional effort to restrict county employees from holding partisan political office as part of the kneejerk leftist hatred of Sen. Don Benton... an effort that ultimately, and rightly, failed in the process before it got tossed out in court.... the fact that it is legal is already known.

Henricksen, on the other hand, knows as much about holding two political positions simultaneously as she does about performing an abdominal resection.  So, why ask her to talk about something she knows absolutely nothing about?

Those shilling this idiocy made the position part time; Henricksen's opinion on whether or not the county chair, should they also be a senator, give up "one position or the other" is as relevant as that of my Cavalier Spaniels.

The ultimate decision rest with those hated voters.  You know, the ones who ultimately make these kinds of choices without the assistance of the rag's propaganda specialists or former politicos who have no clue as to the demands of either office?

I mean, those shilling this scam MEANT it when they falsely claimed these positions would be "part time," didn't they?

And bringing up Benton's name with the equally irrelevant scam of HIS "balancing" HIS position is a partisan shot against Rivers.

After all, and I reiterate: this IS a "part time" job, isn't it?

Is Benton's position with the county "part time?"  Of course it isn't.  And that's why quoting Henricksen is idiotic in the face of Tim Sheldon's ability to both... for years.

What Dake SHOULD have done is to check with someone actually DOING it who also has a clue as to the demands of the Senate.

You know, pick up the phone and call Sen. Sheldon or email HIM, instead of calling a local leftist who doesn't know anything about either position, save that they exist?

Clearly, stupid is as stupid does.  And it's this kind of partisan crap that reduces the value of this waste of wood pulp into the minus range.

My teacher moment of the year.

I'm not a big fan of teaching as a profession, particularly those ensconced WEA types who always, always (wrongly) view themselves as the smartest kids in the room.

But I would LOVE having THIS teacher teach my kids:
[–][deleted] 3096 points3097 points  (418 children) 
I'm a teacher. A colleague of mine is a former army ranger. I walked by his classroom and saw one of his students standing in the hallway, staring at the lockers and repeatedly turning his wrist as if he was starting a car. 
I asked him what he was doing and he mumbled, "Mr. Fakename told me to come out here and practice flipping burgers because that's all I'll ever amount to if I keep acting the way I do." 
This teacher was making a kid stand in the hall and mime flipping burgers. I thought that was a bit harsh, but didn't intervene. On my way back down the hallway about ten minutes later, the same student was making a slightly different motion. 
"What's happening now?" I asked. 
"Mr. Fakename says I have to clean off the grill before I can come back in."

Test One for the GOP senate: will they actually kill off Obama's illegal alien amnesty?

I admit it: I'm something of a political cynic.

Unlike the blindered fringe-left and the psychotic local leftist media, I really don't care what your party label happens to be.

if you're worthless (Herrera Buetler, Vick) that you claim an "R" after your name gets you no cache' with me, even though I was once working as the Executive Director of the State GOP.  In fact, that is the time some 14 years ago that I can specifically point to as when my political epiphany actually took place.

If you're political movement is based on hatred; hatred of a group, hatred of a race, hatred of a man, then I call you out as what you are: a hate group.

I call out the scum at C3G2 as haters and their group as a hate group.  If I was part of a group devoted to the destruction of the slimeball running the country today because of his race or his policies, these fringe-left whack jobs would do the same.  They just don't happen to like it when the shoe fits for them.

And if you're corrupt (Tim "The Liar" Leave-it) or a liar (Tim "The Liar" Leave-it or Scott Weber) or if you're the epitome of arrogance and you crap all over your constituents and the people who put you into office by subordinating their positions of the arrogance of your own (Jimmy "Molehill" Moeller or Steve "I only speak for Steve" Stuart) then you should expect me to beat on you in this blog like a rented red-headed step-child.

I admit that I have been leaning more towards the Tea-Party position on the issues confronting us. After all, the quintessential RINO here locally, Greg Kimsey, has just finished crapping all over us here and acting like the left is paying hi on his charter scam... and hopefully, prison is in his future because of it.

If he's an example of a so-called "moderate" than can someone please tell me the difference between a scumbag like Kimsey and a scumbag like, say, Pridemore?

So, I look at a very few candidates who seem to be more interested in carrying Constitutional and GOP tenets than the establishment variety.  As a result, I've frequently asked (And have yet to get a response) if those elected under the GOP banner act and vote as if Obama was paying them, then what the hell good does it do to elect them?

The biggest local example of that was my own brother-in-law, Marc Boldt.  He voted like Steve "Screw you and what you think" Stuart had his hand up his back and into his head for the most part.  What good did it do to elect him since he voted with Stuart easily in excess of 90% of the time?

None at all.

So, I have proffered the idea that GOP control of the Senate will likely make zero difference, much like GOP control of the House has made zero difference, save for aiding and abetting Obama's efforts to weaken us militarily, make our foreign policy the laughing stock and to bury us in additional trillions in debt... as if we can afford it.

So now, the GOP-controlled senate will get it's first opportunity to make a statement: and that statement is to kill off Obama's illegal alien amnesty.

The how of it is rather easy.  There are a variety of other ways the GOP can stop up Obama's plumbing as well.

But do they have the will?  I seriously doubt it.

And if, as I suspect, they don't... then what the hell good did it do to elect this mainstream clowns in the first place?

Why none.  None at all.

So, Graf leaves the democratian.... so what?

There seems to be this rather bizarre idea that local government should respond to the whims of a daily publication that bases their editorial policy on the psychopathic levels of hatred towards someone in government expressed by its editor should be treated the same as a paper that actually tells the truth and treats people fairly.

How weird.

It didn't take Tyler Graf all that long to throw any pretense of integrity or fairness aside in his reporting for the daily democrat.  But then, the fish rots from the head down and one of the lessons I learned in college (Philosophy 102 at Eastern, if memory serves) is that the reason concentration camp guards and reporters have the ability to treat others differently than they would treat themselves is that both of these groups assumed the values of the organization for which they worked.

The reporters at the democratian lie, slant, exaggerate and omit because those are the values of the clown who runs that paper.

You either sign on to those values and his Madore jihad, or you're gone.  Simple, really.

So, it's not terribly surprising that Graf, who appears to be roughly 12 years old, whines about how the county government responded to his juvenile antics.

When, for example, he writes garbage like this, I've got to wonder.
Real transparency would mean a politician would explain himself to the county’s largest newspaper, or supply it with timely information.  
Why would they do that?  See, Graf, here's the thing: you people have no interest in telling the truth.

Your paper has flat out lied.  Your rag's editorial policy is to attack... rabidly.... those wise enough to oppose the idiocy of your neo-communist agenda.  Your despicable rag even repeatedly referred to those of us opposed to the stupidity of the CRC/Loot Rail scam as "cockroaches."

I'm not particularly sure if Graf was here at the time John "Pit Yorkie" Laird was allowed to spew that manure or not.  Nevertheless, it helped set the tone for years to come.

Graf fails to understand that with freedom comes responsibility.  And as Graf's exit spiel proves, he has no responsibility to the truth, instead, constantly allowing his fringe-left, pro-jihadist attitude to infest everything he writes.... the kind of attitude that Lefty Lou encourages with his cult of personality as a result of his hatred of David Madore.
Transparency does not mean posting propaganda on a Facebook page, deleting negative comments from community members responding to said propaganda
This garbage here, of course, is outright rank hypocrisy.

See, in Graf's stilted view, it's perfectly OK for HIS rag to DO THE EXACT SAME THING.  Odd, isn't it?

Graf, an obvious C3G2-style hater, works for an organization that first pioneered the art of censoring comments and banning those who simply won't kiss their ring... or ass, for that matter.  And yet, this punk then proceeds to condemn someone else for doing the EXACT SAME THING?

And, of course, fortunately for us all, what is and what is not "transparency" isn't up to Graf, either, because by the time he and the rest of that disgrace to journalism he's been working for spindle, fold and mutilate the truth in the name of their agenda, neither "truth" nor "transparency" are recognizable..

Nor, for that matter, does "transparency" resemble enabling your proven enemy of the truth to selectively cherry-pick information and then twist it until it bears no resemblance to reality as part of their meme.
(many of which simply point out factual mistakes)
Much like many of the comments from community members responding to democratian propaganda, you mean, Graf?

When you're the object of a local hate group whose sole reason for existence is to destroy you, how is it that you can conclude that allowing those scum to pollute your own, personal, facebook page with THEIR lies, exaggerations and hatred is somehow a responsibility of an elected official, all the while working for a rag that routinely does the same thing to those who disagree with THEM?

I get that you work for their propaganda arm of the Madore-haters.  I get that it's your job.  I get that the scumbag you answer to has achieved a psychotic level of hatred of the man.

But that doesn't provide you with any excuse, Graf.  That Befehl ist Befehl crap is just that, crap. Your responsibility is to the truth.  The whole truth.... not just the parts you think you like, leaving out little factoids that provide context or tidbits that run against the  meme. That you would condemn others for that which your own excuse for journalism practices every day it's in existence while you turn a blind eye?  That makes you a total hypocrite.
and then calling those people members of a “hate group.”
Yeah?  And?  The shoes fits perfectly.

So, what's your point?  How many names have the scum you worked with called us?
Madore does all of these things.
Yeah?  And?

Here's the thing, Graf: you're not going to last all that long shilling for a non-profit now that you've failed as a reporter.  Your lack of integrity, your gullibility and your ignorance doom you there as much as it did here.

So, you are doing us all a favor and leaving.

I'm fine with that.

You won't be missed.

The Ferguson Mess.

Millions of dollars of damage.  Theft.  Murder.  Arson.

All over the rightful death of a thug:

The media mostly portrays thus punk as just some sort of victim.  Those who believe this have deluded themselves in large part much like the C3G2 haters.

But I really don't give a damn if this punk was as pure as the driven snow.

In the end, he got stupid... he got dead.  And for Ferguson, regardless of the outcome, riots were going to be inevitable. Because those fostering this attitude of hatred and division don't make money when everything is going fine.

Think in terms of Al Gore and the global warming scam: those preaching the lie of global warming don't make bank of it when or if everything is fine.

And remember: Gruber declared the American Voter "stupid."

But what the race baiters have accomplished... are accomplishing... is far worse.

Led by hypocritical hucksters like Barack Obama, Al "Tawana Brawley" Sharpton and Jessie "How many out of wedlock psycho kids do I have" Jackson, many have used this situation as an excuse to unleash THEIR inner thug.

This isn't helping "race relations."  On the contrary, it increases fear and tension among those portrayed as having "white privilege".

I was astounded as I watched a group of primarily white morons blocking traffic and raising hell in Portland last night on the news.  So, whites were out there making noise.  The me, too-ism reeked of the white guilt the progressives demand that we all share due to the accident of our births... the color of our skins... as the excuse they need to take over control of our lives.

Those holding these coats are unaffected by the fight.  The millions in damage caused by scum in Ferguson and to a lesser extent, around the country, will not impact these race-baiting worms in any way.

You think Obama lost any sleep over this?  Or Sharpton or Jackson?

Hell, no, they didn't.  They just see it as yet another opportunity to make money as a result of their race hustling business.

Much like Obama ramming Obamacare down our throats without his personal concern that he or any of his family will be subjected to its dictates; that having been a useful tool, he will bear the fruits of that in his personal life and the lives of his children in perpetuity without care or concern that they will ever suffer because of it... none of these slime will ever be negatively impacted by this issue.

The damage inflicted served no positive cause.  The damage inflicted was color-blind, with thugs and criminals raping the lives of many business owners where those of all colors watched their entire lives go up in smoke.

To the scum who actually believe that this will make "change," I cannot disagree.  The problem, for them, is that by living up to the stereotype, the change they receive will not be the change they seek.

Meanwhile, blacks slaughter each other at astounding rates... and no one gives a damn.

Chicago is an abattoir for primarily young black men, and the Attorney General of the United States does nothing, because the guy running that cesspool of corruption is a "FOB," or a "Friend of Barack."

Blacks have THEIR "civil rights" violated with each tick of the clock by other blacks around this country and those running the show do nothing.

That's right up there at the local level with the democratian preaching about truth, integrity and fairness, tenets of character essentially unknown by those running government.

What it's accomplished for me is a desire to buy an M4 or an M16.

What it's accomplished for me is a desire to make sure that my children are now armed at all times.

What it's accomplished for me is an even deeper shame for my government.

What it's accomplished for me is a reason to buy more ammunition.

What it's accomplished for me is an even deeper distrust of the leftists infesting us and their agendas... and a shame for my government as they drag us down deeper into the abyss.

There is no excuse for what happened in Ferguson post grand jury announcement.

The governor of Missouri should be impeached.  The way to have defused this situation was to have put a brigade of National Guard troops into Ferguson fully dispersed.

Looters should have been shot.  Arsonists should have been shot.  Block traffic?  Go to prison.

Peaceful protest?  I have zero problem with that.

Cause damage?  Steal?  You're going down.

I had a platoon sergeant back in my Recon days so long ago.  He was a man of many sayings: one of his favs was this:
"You looking for sympathy?  It's in the dictionary between 'shit' and 'syphilis.'"
That was ingrained in me at the cellular level by the events of Ferguson, MO and the fringe-left nutters who used this as an excuse to burn and steal and destroy.

So, to those who think they've got it so bad, I leave you with this:

"If you're looking for sympathy...."

Clark County gets another 7,300 jobs, and naturally, no credit goes to the commissioners.

In keeping with the democratian's hate jihad against David Madore, there was no mention of his fee waiver plan as being in any way responsible for this massive economic growth our county is experiencing.

In fact, Betty Sue Morris immediately jumped in to make sure that everyone knew that the fee waiver hasn't been responsible for any economic growth:
Betty Sue Morris · Top Commenter · Vancouver, Washington
Robert Stevens, the numbers quoted above are across jurisdictional lines. The fee waiver applies only in the unincorporated area. A fair comparison would be to see how many of those newly employed, which we are all glad to see, are in cities and and how many are in the unincorporated county and, second, how many of those are a direct result of the fee waiver. Many may well be jobs within an existing business and have nothing to do with the fee waiver. So before anyone praises or criticizes the fee waiver program against it's goal of creating jobs, we should have those numbers.
One has to wonder: did Betty Sue drill down like this on her watch as a commissioner when we had decent to good economic news?  Or  did she just refuse to take any credit for it one way or the other?

And, of course, that toady Dalesandro had to jump in with his "You're absolutely right, J.B.!" cloying garbage.

But that's not really the point of this:

Oddly, in all matters concerning county government, David Madore is responsible for everything bad, and anything good, like another months of several thousand job growth?  Well, in the world of the fringe-leftist, he had nothing to do with that.

Ever.

It's not just that the democratian and the left lie so much... it's that they do it so badly when they do it.

But as I have frequently pointed out here: if David Madore found a cure for cancer, these scum would complain about the size of the test tubes he used to make it happen.

Jeanne Stewart sworn in - Clark County has an all GOP commission; Brancaccio's head explodes.

We all know how obsessed Lefty Lou Brancaccio is with anyone or anything Commissioner David Madore supports.

Even now, Lefty's jihad against Madore continues.  His anti-Madore fetish during the campaign was the garbage of legends.

He was, for example, much more concerned about defeating any candidate supported by Madore in any legislative role than he was concerned about the lies of Timmy "The Liar" Leavitt or Scott Weber that they used to get elected.

And how did that work out for Lefty?

Not that great.

And so, today, our newest Commissioner, Jeanne Stewart, was sworn into office to finish out Steve "I only speak for Steve" Stuart's term resulting from his early exit reward for throwing this entire county under a TriMet bus.

Ed Barnes will sink back into his well-earned anonymity; the leftist plan to foil the people of this county once again shattered by now 3-time loser Craig Pridemore's defeat.

The left could care less, of course: they're always the smartest guys in the room... they think... and that's why of 15 legislators representing Clark County, 12 are GOP... and of 3 commissioners, all are GOP.

Lefty's best efforts notwithstanding.

So, today, it all came together.  All the planning, all the work, all the feints, all the misguided counter-productive hatred from the left.

Congratulations of Commissioner Jeanne Stewart.  Well done.

Memo to the Battle Ground WalMart: do your employees even speak English, or are they scamming to avoid work?

Moments ago, my wife dropped into the relatively new Battle Ground WalMart to pick up a few things for her new office.

She just called me from the store, using language she rarely uses to describe the employees there, who seem to be doing all they can to avoid eye-contact (And thus risking the possibility of providing customer service) when she ran into one and asked her if she could point out the "command center" for products that people use to hang pictures and the like.

Either the woman (Eastern European) didn't understand her or she, more likely, damned sure did understand her and wanted to avoid the effort; but either way, she just looked at my wife and said "Sorry..." in heavily accented English while she turned around and walked away.

Not "I'll find out," or "I don't know," or "drop dead."  She literally turned her back on my wife and walked away.

Wife calls me, livid.  We talked about it and she made the decision to take her cart up front, walk out and go to Fred Meyers.

I support WalMart.  I support the idea of WalMart.  I've said as much in this very blog.

But it will be a cold day in May in San Diego before I ever go back there if this is how they're going to treat people there.

Did I mention that Brandon Vick is not the sharpest knife in the drawer?

I've made no secret of my disdain for one of my two state representatives, Brandon "Lumpy" Vick.

"Lumpy" is a nickname Vick earned as he was in the middle of his first legislative session "representing" us in the 18th District... as it became clear he wasn't going to do anything he didn't have to do including the heavy lifting involved in the introduction of even a single piece of legislation.

During the course of his campaign to be re-elected, Vick essentially lied outright by making the specious claim that he was actually on 6 committees, a meme that scum down at the democratian repeated by rote, as if they didn't know better.

That Vick was returned for two more years of inaction and confusing motion with action is far more a testament to the even lower quality of his opponent, fringe-leftist nutter Mussolini Mikey Briggs than it is to anything Vick has achieved... or, in the alternative, failed to achieve.

He made that bizarre claim to counter the laziness reputation emanating from Olympia based on his actions... actually, his lack of actions... during that first year.  And his frequently repeated and false claim that HE was the guy sent in for "tough" negotiations, when, in fact, he is a backbencher wall-flower like Jaime Herrera, and if he got "sent" for anything, it was coffee for the adults.

And, of course, we'd like to believe that our legislators have a clue.  At the national level, it's clear that Herrera doesn't have one, neither of our Senators have one, and God Knows that clueless moron in the White House doesn't have one.

And now, once again, we get Brandon Vick who felt compelled to offer the following comment on the scum running rampant in and around Ferguson, MO.

 

"I thought it made me think."

If only.

I would like to know when, in Vick's lifetime, "massive riots" approaching anything like this have ever taken place?

Yes, I am well aware of the WTO protests in Seattle in 1999.

But those were a parking lot fender dent compared to Ferguson's 70 car pile up.

There are times, I believe, when those in a position of authority (No matter how unfortunate that may be...)  should speak out on the events surrounding us and/or impacting us.  But built in TO that is the presumption that they have at least an inkling on the subjects they're going to babble about.

I have, and will continue to, hammer Jaime Herrera for remaining silent on many of the issues confronting us.  But when she (Or, actually, her keepers) send out a press release, they at least have a vague notion of the issues at hand.

Brandon Vick, with this remark that he wrote, appears so far in over his head that he can't see straight.

"... but I thought it made me think."

Indeed.

Wilson exonerated by grand jury



I am Darren Wilson



For those who thought the democratian didn't lie to support their candidates? Dake admits it!

Of course, anyone reading that excuse for a true newspaper already knew this: but to get a newspaper reporter to admit it?

Lies that lying liars lie.

WHY do they have to lie for those they support?
Anson,
You are referring to an editorial written by the editorial board. It is skewed toward your opponent because the opinion writers chose to endorse Sharon Wylie. That is not a news article.
I will email you questions tomorrow morning. Thanks, 
Lauren
It's as if... they can lie about anything they want if it doesn't come under the guise of "news."  (Like they don't lie about news as well.)

This is part and parcel as to why this despicable rag is a crap stain on the underwear of true journalism.  Lying, to them, is perfectly OK whenever they want, but particularly in support of their agenda.

And the word for that is hypocrisy.

Hi Lauren,

You can email me. I would like to have a written record of what I tell the Columbian because what has been reported about me has not been 100% accurate or the complete story. It is heavily skewed toward my opponent and the things I have written or said have not always been represented correctly.

Oh, I'm sorry to hear that, Anson.

Are you referring to any of my stories? Do you have specifics? If we got something wrong, we would put a correction in the paper. 

It would be better to chat on the phone, but I can email you questions if that's what you insist upon.

The story that was run this past weekend had no authors name to it. I am short on time right now, but the summations made are not correct, especially given all of the information that is available on my website. Many issues are directly addressed on my website Issues

Whoever wrote it must not have done any searching for answers, because my ideas to fund education are not paper thin and they are right there on my website. It also makes the comment that I do not know how legislation works. That is totally false. My opponent said that, not me. Initially I indicated that it was not hard to learn and that I was new to it, meaning I had never been a legislator. There are many things you have to learn as a legislator that you can only learn once you are a legislator, but how legislation works is not one of them. I would not have any problem catching on immediately and surpassing her performance in every way. In fact, I have already reached out to several Democrat legislators and many Republican legislators and have made relationships so I can hit the ground running once elected. They have agreed to work with me on several bills right off the bat. Some of my issues are directly influenced by talking with these legislators. Basically, I am not sure how the Columbian has been able to make the claims that have been printed. Heck, I even emailed full explanations to you several months back that contradict what was written this past weekend. So, it appears that I have not been given a fair shake here and it appears as though the stories are meant to convince the public of something rather than simply present the facts.  One reader contacted me and asked me why I wanted to raise fishing and hunting license prices to raise $3 billion. I never said that, but that is the message they got from your article right after the editorial board. You also know that I was not treated with respect during that board. So, because I could not possibly elaborate on complex issues with three candidates in the room all wanting a chance to talk, and with Lou cutting me off when I was trying to speak, it is important for you to know that nearly everything is spelled out on my website in detail if you are interested in reporting on the issues. Basically, the only thing Sharon has over me is that she has already been a legislator and knows where the cafeteria at the capitol is. Those miniscule things do not matter. With regard to education, experience in vital issues, advocacy for jobs here in Vancouver, and community service, I have her beat in all those and other areas. Have you seen the interview where she makes a sexist claim against men and women? What about her NFIB rating? She got a failing grade on that. That is something that matters to businesses and workers here. Well, I have to go. Yeah, go ahead and email me questions and I will give you a succinct answer that is simple and easy to write about.

Thanks

Even if it is an opinion article, should they really be saying things that are factually incorrect? I understand if they have an opinion, but they are stating things as if they are true when they are not. You are right. That is not news. That is fiction. Even still, when you wrote about me after the ed board a few months back, you did not give me a fair shake either. Again with the whole parks passes thing. The point was that there are ways to cut waste and raise revenue, and that tax increases should be the last resort. That is not what you printed. 

So, I suppose the editors get to print whatever they want, and if they want to print lies about me, I guess that is their prerogative. I am finding difficulty justifying feeding information to a publication that knowingly prints false things about me though.  Info on me might help sell issues, and the last thing I want to do is support a group of people who are spreading rumors in their newspaper.

Hagel out; All of the Generals should resign.

Hagel's resignation is long overdue.

As THE individual most responsible for implementing the crippling Obama policies of paying for Obamaphones taking priority over force capabilities; for shattering the social fabric of the Armed Forces with gay social programs and the idiocy of "women in combat," and the promotion of generals for their political pliability and not for their military skill set.

And that's the thing, you see: I last wore the uniform 28 years ago.  I ended my service as a commissioned officer, having started out as a 17 year and one day old Private and having worked my way up to Staff Sergeant... before getting my butter bar.

They taught us certain things concerning Duty, Honor and Country that it seems our military leadership have long since forgotten in the political jungle the Clueless One has replaced the military with.

The horror stories of military affirmative action.  The billions wasted on social programs in the military.   The reductions in force WHILE WE'RE STILL AT WAR.

Can you imagine what would have happened to FDR if he had pulled stunts like this?  Kicking our multiple tour combat veterans and their hard-won experience because of... tattoos.  Seriously.  Tattoos are getting warriors kicked out by barring them from reenlistment.

While our enemies gain strength at a geometric rate, we become weaker and weaker and weaker in the face of Russian and Chinese hegemony.

As a General Officer, you are SUPPOSED to be the epitome of Duty, Honor, Country.

You are SUPPOSED to stand at the height of meritocracy, being where you are with what you have based solely on your performance.

Now, it seems that your gender plays a role.  Your color.  Your religion. 

As a soldier, I never cared about any of that in combat arms.  I believed in my leadership because they got where they are (Unlike Obama) because they had proven ability and experience and a record that showed their ability to perform as leaders.

Now, we get officers like Hassan, and leaders that allow that politically correct BS.

Now, we get officers who get positions and promotions because they share the right political views, while hard-chargers are bounced because of their source of commissioning, because they were prior enlisted, because they screwed up a decade ago.... because, because, because.

We are getting weaker by the day.  Our enemies are getting stronger.  And those who know better... those with stars on their epaulets... sit silently.

Imagine the changes in policy that could be brought about if every single flag officer... every single one of the Joint Chiefs of Staff walked into Obama's office and handed in letters of resignation.

It's what the country needs.  It's what this situation demands.

I'm not so concerned about Hagel: he shouldn't have left years ago; exactly like Shinseki should have resigned the instant that anti-American racist bigot in the White House floated that bizarre idea to make our wounded veterans pay for their own medical care.

But these people have long since forgot that their duty lay with the people of this Country and the Constitution that are sworn to preserve, protect and defend... from ALL enemies, foreign AND domestic.

And our military... our country... suffers because of it.

Mussolini Mikey learned nothing by getting destroyed in the 1-8.

Of all candidates running for legislative office in Clark County, guess which one did the worst?

I'll end the suspense for you: it was Mussolini Mikey Briggs.

Bob Dingethal even got more.  So did Bully Loserham.  Even an unfunded, unknown McCluskey.  He brought up the very bottom of the pact... the worst of the worse.

There were many reasons for that.  He's possessed of a personality of a snake; Leavitt-like arrogance, cluelessness, dim-witted sliminess, a tin-ear and complete ignorance over what the people of this county want.

A terrible fundraiser, a clueless campaigner, he was slaughtered by arguably the weakest, worst incumbent running, Brandon "Who says there's no free lunch?" Vick, Mussolini managed to get THE worst vote count by percentage of any of the fringe-left nutters running in the big three.

Expressing relief that he could stop lying about who he is and what his positions are because of the campaign, that slimy little worm STILL "blames" Rivers for being the Bridge Killer, too stupid to realize that every time he babbles about the CRC/Loot Rail scam, he strengthens any candidate generally and Ann Rivers particularly because of the successful effort to kill off Mikey's bridge fetish.

So, he's engaging in the same whining and sniveling that resulted in the revulsion that got him kicked so far to the curb.

He also seems confused over the importance of the democratian in this equation: if the democratian mattered, it would be Commissioner Pridemore, Rep. Stonier, and Sheriff Gardner.

They don't, of course.  But because he's worn out as many sets of knee-pads as a democratian lackey as he did in his abysmal effort to support the Obamaian-like effort to ram that horrific scam down our collective throats.

Clearly, Mr. 36% learned nothing from getting politically massacred... from being the laugh-stock/doormat I knew he would be.

And Mikey, I'm still out here... just waiting for you to either get stupid and run for something else, or to support someone else who is running.

You know... so I can Madore whoever that poor, miserable sot might be?  

Democrats are perfectly OK with this when it's their guy.

In a sea of leftist hypocrisy, you can bet the fringe-left infesting us will be whining like cut cats over the nuclear option THEY implemented in the Senate to get rid of those bothersome GOP filibusters... which they didn't use nearly enough, by the way... so they can ram their appointments through Congress.

Now, of course, as it inevitably will, the shoe's on the other foot.

And what are these hypocrites going to start whining about?

The rules THEY implemented.  Because, well, you know, it's different when the left does it.  It's ALWAYS "different" when the left does it.

And that's why the fringe-left and the race baiters are so thrilled with Barry's decision to use the Constitution as his own version of Charmin 2-ply.

In a move that will cost us additional hundreds of billions, explode our schools, cut college slots for citizens and the like (Which has already happened, given that in many states, including our own, illegal aliens pay tuition at the in-state rate when they should, in fact, be deported) the president has told Congress to drop dead, a move that can be reasonably expected to happen repeatedly over the next two years, but a move that had a GOP president done it on, say, tax reform or privatizing social security or eliminating affirmative action, would have resulted in universal condemnation, media attacks across the country reminiscent of Lefty Lou's Madore jihad and riots that would make Ferguson look like a parking lot fender-bender.

This, then is a video summary of what took place and what will take place repeatedly before the horror of this scumbag's term is over:



In my view: A History of Hypocrisy.

When you're a rag built on lies, fabrications, exaggerations and an agenda, you're hardly in a position to call anyone else out for doing what you do every day.

The rag attempted... and failed... to use the threat of a downtown developer "to leave" when the oil terminal is built to build opposition to this effort.

The democratian has lied and or misrepresented almost every salient fact about oil and coal transport that can be imagined.  That, of course, is a pattern well established years ago when it came to the Gorge Commission... then a segue' to the decade-long series of lies, propaganda and character attacks driven by an agenda that frequently results in both lies and doubling down on those same lies to get what they want... what WE want be damned.

I make no bones about it: I want the oil terminal built and I want the coal to come through.... since both the oil and the coal are coming through regardless of whether or not terminals are built here.

And, as always, whenever the rag is either for or against something... a position, an issue, a candidate... we're are all best served to do what we did in the last election (For the most part) and that is repudiate it.

The hypocrisy?

THOUSANDS of robo calls went out for Stonier from the scumbag former Mayor of Vancouver, "No Choice" Royce Pollard, urging people to "join with him in voting for Monica Stonier."

Except, of course, No Choice could not vote for Stonier, since he didn't live in her district.

And that goes to two patterns on parallel courses: a pattern of democratian lies, either by commission or omission, and a pattern of leftist lies generally.

The rag knew about the robo call because I blogged it that day, chapter and verse.  Yet, as expected since they so strongly supported that empty-suited WEA witch that they had trashed just the cycle before, they never wrote anything about it.

No article(s).  No rabid editorials.  No expose's.

This, then, is just one of the many issues the local version of the Nazi-Party German Newspaper, the Völkischer Beobachter, has: they turn this crap on and off like a switch.  They point out what even they refer to as a typo, try and use it to blow it up into an issue of some sort (Like that's going to change anybodies mind.) while they deliberately ignore the obvious lies of Pollard and Stonier.

And that's the problem they've got.

To be listened to, you've got to have credibility.  For your words to matter, you MUST apply the same standard ALL of the time and to EVERYONE.

 And that's the fail boat for the horrific rag we're stuck with here in the Vancouver Soviet region.

And that's a shame, really.  If their editor wasn't such a reeking, rank, psychotically-driven hypocrite, they actually could make a difference that is positive, and be a voice for the people instead of the downtown mafia special interests infesting us.

But it's this kind of one-sided garbage that makes them, effectively, utterly worthless.

Just sayin'.

Hillary shoots herself in the foot: ties herself to Obama's amnesty.

I'm starting to get the idea that the "democrat stupid" is genetic.

In a larger example of local "democrat stupid," defined as consistently running tin-eared leftists who deliberately try and get elected by running on issues their prospective constituents strongly oppose (For example, the most recent leftists running in the 18th sounded exactly the same as Molehill Moeller, running in the 49th.... even though the constituency was exactly the reverse on the hot button issues of the CRC/Loot Rail and the issue of Oil/Coal.) we now have Hillary, who is either surrounded by incompetence, or so far to the left that even in the face of overwhelming opposition to Obama's Mussolini-style dictatorship, she actually supports this shredding of the Constitution.

Hillary Clinton backs Obama immigration move

NEW YORK (AP) - Hillary Rodham Clinton voiced support Friday for President Barack Obama's use of executive actions to protect about 5 million immigrants from deportation, setting up a sharp contrast with Republicans on an issue that could play a leading role in the next presidential campaign.

"I think the president took an historic step and I support it," Clinton said in an appearance at the New York Historical Society, embracing her fellow Democrat's moves to address immigration.

The former secretary of state, a potential Democratic presidential candidate, said Obama's actions were in line with previous moves by Democratic and Republican presidents alike and urged Congress to "follow the lead" of a measure approved in the Senate in 2013. She also placed the efforts in the context of families, many of whom she said are longtime residents raising children and paying taxes.

"This is about people's lives," she said.

It was Clinton's first public comments on Obama's immigration orders, which have been harshly criticized by many Republicans in Congress who accuse Obama of overstepping his executive powers. Clinton issued a statement shortly after Obama's speech Thursday night expressing support.

Charging hypocrisy, the Republican National Committee released a Web video earlier in the day that included the audio of an April 2008 Clinton speech in which she criticized President George W. Bush's use of signing statements and other means "to transform the executive into an imperial presidency."

Clinton spoke about the immigration plan during an interview with Walter Isaacson, the biographer and CEO of the Aspen Institute, at the event. Clinton said she was studying the life and presidency of Theodore Roosevelt and discussed the need for Americans to find a "common purpose."
More:

What makes this so deadly for her is simple and it's the same problem that Barry is going to have until we're rid of him:  If he can govern by edict on this, then where does it end?  Why can't he govern by edict on anything.... such as tax rates, or environment, or gay marriage, or price controls?

Out government is not set up so that a president can legislate under the claim that he can make law until the law makers make a law he likes.  That kind of coercion is much more reminiscent of Hugh Chavez than George Washington.

Only 38 percent of the American public support this effort by Obama to force his will down our throats.

At this point, the latest NBC Poll shows that it's even only a small majority of Latino's here that support it: 43 to 37.

Them idea that everyone wildly supports this imperial takeover appears to be just another media-manufactured pro-Obama-scam as they've long since seen this clown sink into the depths as the worst president this country has ever known, a president that makes most long for the day of the former title holder, Jimmy Carter.

Hillary's "me-too" will kill her chances of election with an even greater intensity that her efforts to allow the slaughter of the 4 Americans in Benghazi and her fake, "I was under sniper fire in Bosnia" lies.

As the bills mount, the crimes increase, the jobs to legal residents and citizens are lost, the opposition to this idiocy will build like lead poisoning... and it will be just as tough to get rid of.

I believe her over-the-top support of this stupidity has finished her off.  And that's Hope and Change I CAN believe in.

Whatever is the GOP going to do?

At the national level, the president acted like a petulant jerk with his use of the Constitution as toilet paper; reminiscent of the mayor of Vancouver's petulance and naked power grab by starting the process of dissolving CTran as a result of Craig Pridemore's loss for county commissioner.

The people do not want this empty-suited idiot of a president to act unilaterally.  The people of Clark County did/do not want the CRC Scam.  The people of Clark County did/do not want BRT.  Obama, like Leavitt, do not give a rat's ass what the people want.

The question then becomes this: what is the GOP going to do about it?

Well, we don 't know what our cowardly empty suit in Congress wants to do or is going to do; she's too terrified to tell us and besides, her abrogation of representation didn't hurt her last re-election, why should being as worthless as a brass door-knocker hurt her now?

Political types are running around like chickens with their craniums removed.  Me?  Not so much.

The options for the GOP as I see them are these:  Say a great deal, but do nothing that changes much, if anything.

Or, as I call it, the Herrera Gambit.

I call it that because Jaime Herrera has failed to accomplish anything of note since we were unfortunate enough to have her return after an 11 or so year absence.

She babbles a great deal... or those with a hand up her back into her head (Ala Jeff Dunham) babble for her via press release... but she accomplishes little to nothing.

Her biggest local failure?

She did nothing to stop the CRC/Light Rail scam.

In office since November, 2007, and she never even tried to do anything about the CRC Scam except, of course, talk.

Even thought she has the same stature as a hood ornament, she's successful at keeping her job which, of course, is not only the only thing SHE'S concerned about, it's the only thing most of Congress is concerned about.

I see Herrera as the model for the GOP congressional response.  They have yet to show they have the testicular fortitude to put the security and the well-being of this nation ahead of their own re-election chances.  This will be no different.

They will TALK a great deal: but in the end, buying into the all-aflutter talking heads whining, they will accomplish nothing of note as they deal with a fait accompli.

What should they do?

The president wants a bill?  Give him one.

Include asset forfeiture for those who hire illegal aliens modeled after asset forfeiture for drug sales.  Treat the hiring of illegals the same way we treat the sale of illegal drugs.

Make it illegal for illegal aliens to own real property of any kind: buildings, houses, cars, land, etc.

End the concept of "anchor babies."  Those breaking our laws to give birth here should not be allowed to use that as an excuse to stay here.  They should be deported; if they want to take their children born here with them, that's up to them.  But breaking the law should never be rewarded with something allegedly as precious as legal American residence.

Make it illegal for illegal aliens to be provided housing.  No state housing.  No local housing.  No private housing.  Cut all federal funding to any state that allows it.

Make it illegal for illegal aliens to receive any social service or schooling.  Cut all federal funding to any state where such programs are provided.

Permanently bar any illegal alien from citizenship or legal residence in the United States.

Build a border fence that will actually make a difference. Issue a shoot on sight order at the border.

Place active duty Marine and Army divisions on the border to enforce it, until such time as the Border Patrol can be expanded and equipped to deal with it themselves.

Fine the county of Mexico $10 million in foreign aid, per year, permanently, for each illegal alien they allow to get through to our border.

They won't do any of those things, of course: to do such a thing is to actually begin the process of addressing the unpleasant realities that FAILING to address these issues have led to.  Because failing to deal with these issues has certainly made a huge, positive difference, hasn't it?

EVERY option needs to be on the table: Impeachment, government shut down, all nominations blocked.  The GOP would never consider doing any of those things or any combination of them; unlike the democrats who routinely tattoo them, the GOP is fear-driven.  And those who lead from fear rarely do what has to be done.

But in the end: we as a people and as a government either want to put a stop to this or we do not.  And if we are to put a stop to this, then every possible action needed to accomplish that goal should be considered and implemented.

Meanwhile, where does this dictator stop?

As one talking head put it, what's to stop this clown from destroying the constitution on any number of other issues?

Double the minimum wage? No problem.  Jack up the tax rate?  Easy.  Institute an executive order.  Privatize social security?  Piece of cake.  Executive order, coming up!There's no end, now, to what a president can dictate.

And if a GOP president were to engage in this kind of extra-legal activity in ways the left didn't like, these hypocrites would be out like a rioter in Ferguson bitching about it.

And that's the thing these people ignore:  Implement the nuclear option in the senate when you're in charge?

Well, it remains in effect when you're NOT in charge.  THEN what are you going to do?  I mean, you can't complain about it, can you?

How long have we been told by the moderates/establishment in the GOP that they just have to eat it; otherwise they won't get elected.

I take the opposite tact: what good does getting the GOP elected do if, once they get there, they don't do anything different?

None.

And now we find out who's right:  because the GOP HAS been elected.

The only remaining question is this: what difference is it going to make?
