More leftist hate on display, letters written by those who've never been elected to anything whining about Ann Rivers as county councilor.

Look, I get that the local left would sell their own mothers to ISIS to get someone in a legislative position.... any sort of legislative position... county wide.

But those babbling in both the letter AND the comment section under it are hardly people who have a fricking clue about elective office.

First, we have Ralphy Boy Schmidt, whom Rivers destroyed when he ran against her for State Senator in 2012,  67.74% to a paltry 32.09%.  He's never been a Senator or any other elected official as near as I can tell.  And fortunately, he never will be.

Even that scumbag Mussolini Mikey Briggs got 37%.

So, to say that Ralphy's concern are anything less than the usual partisan hackery from the left would be the penultimate understatement.

And the comments under this scam, whiny letter?

Every negative note from a C3G2 hater.  Every negative note comes from someone who's never been elected to anything even close to dog catcher.In fact, here are ALL of the comments to date:

    Ann Rivers couldn't make time to be at all the freeholder's meetings. I don't want to take the chance she will miss county meetings. There are other talented, smart, and experienced people out there who could do the job.

      Knowing Senator Rivers, I know that she is capable of doing quite a lot, but she still cannot be in two places at one time. I think she needs to make a decision on the direction of her career.

        The freeholders chose to make the new "Councilors" a part time position, with part time pay. The state legislature is a "part time" job, where Senator Tim Sheldon serves both as a County Commissioner and a State Senator.

        Furthermore, many Americans are working two or more jobs, in part because we are experiencing the "slowest economic recovery since the great depression".

        Ann Rivers is totally capable of doing anything she puts her mind to. Nobody knows what she will or won't do "if" she wins election as a County Councilor. That's totally up to her after the November election.

        But if somebody is crying about it now, it must mean Senator Ann Rivers is doing something right!

          A good and necessary letter-to-the-editor, Mr. Schmidt. I believe the Senator's desires to run for a very important and newly created County Councilor position, in addition to her important role as a State Senator for Washington State, raises some important issues for this part of the state. It is not illegal...but is it ethical?

          Ambition cannot, should not, be the sole reason for the rise in power of any one individual in a democratic government (or government(s).

            What is the ethical concern, Mike? Do you see a conflict of interest, or just a lack of adequate time to do both roles?

            People have raised ethical questions about Tim Leavitt working full-time for an engineering firm while serving as Mayor. I believe those were about functional alliances, not about time-sharing.

          • John Ley ·  Top Commenter · Camas, Washington
            Mike -- do you have the same "ethical" concerns about democrat Senator Tim Sheldon?

          What worries me more than whether Ann Rivers has enough hours in the day for both jobs is whether she can keep the different constituencies clear when she's legislating. In her role as 18th district senator, she has been hostile to the 49th district (and her fellow lawmakers). As council chair, she will have to represent all of Clark County, including parts of the 49th and 18th districts. Is she the type of person that can represent folks she's been at odds with in the past? Absolutely not. In the senate she's shown herself to be short fused, intimidating, and foul-mouthed. If she heads the council, I think those of us out here in the west can expect extreme and vindictive neglect from the county.

            Management consultant Dona Keating made this observation:

            "The saying ’If you want something done, ask a busy person to do it‘ is one of those truths which initially seems counterintuitive. ‘Wouldn’t you want to instead give it to the person with more time on their hands?’ you might ask. Until one realizes there’s a good reason busy people are in high demand. It’s not because they’re circus freaks who enjoy performing the octopus juggle; they’re the sort willing to make sacrifices, go the extra mile, and ensure the vision is executed. Failure, for them, is simply not an option – and because they are busy, it’s likely they’ll appreciate the value of time, theirs and others, and not want to waste it."

            It is legitimate to ask whether Ann Rivers is this kind of busy person - the driven person who thrives on working on multiple challenges. But the fact that a person may have two challenging jobs is not an immediate disqualifier. I rarely see high-achievers who are satisfied to do one part-time job then go home and play video games. It is not in their nature.
          The first comment is nothing more than an out and out lie.  Beneath contempt, but typical of the fringe left. A die-hard leftist and immersed in the C3G2 hate group, it's the sort of lying they're known for.

          The next comment is from the chair of the 18th District democrats, a minor detail typically left out when she's out trashing anyone to the right of Mao.

          Then the letter from Mussolini Mikey Briggs, recently crushed in a horrific performance by the weakest incumbent in the state, Brandon "No Nothing" Vick.  He brings up the straw man of an issue that he knows nothing about (ethics) and applies it to Rivers as if holding both the office of Senator and County Councilor would somehow be illegal.... or at the least, unethical.

          Briggs, of course, doesn't care about ethics when it concerns his fellow fringe-left whack jobs or his temporarily defunct CRC/Loot Rail scam.  He's the epitome of the situational ethical slimeball that is the primary driver of the fringe left.

          The next negative letter is from another hard core leftist, who asks "questions" that no one cares about, as if the left is the majority and not an increasingly shrinking minority.

          The reality of this is not unlike the over-arching reality they lied into existence:

          If Ann Rivers were a democrat... none of these scum would have written a thing.  But in keeping with the Gruber meme, these bottom-feeders babble this crap because at base, they believe the voter to be stupid.

          Keeping these vermin out of local office such as Briggs tends to show that on the contrary, we are anything BUT.  But I wish these partisan hacks would at least go through the motions of making it clear they're leftist slime and all of this is driven by that... and nothing else.

          In the end, when Ann Rivers runs, she will win.  She is a political force of nature that cannot be stopped by these rank, lying leftists.

          But that won't stop them from running their typical smear campaign to try and make that happen.

          Meanwhile, here's the thing: No leftist can win county wide in a legislative type seat.

          Anyone running would have to slavishly devote themselves to the CRC Scam and the people would know all about that from the get go... and that's the death-knell for leftist candidates for years to come.

          The spector of that bridge and that moron Cleveland's efforts to resurrect it (Thanks, Annette!) will loom large over this county for years to come.
