It’s Not “Madore’s Bridge”

by lewwaters

I-5 Bridge 09As expected, CRC fanatics, still stinging from the defeat of their light rail extension being forced into Clark County against citizen will, are lining up to oppose the recently unveiled East County Bridge proposal given by Linda Figg of Figg Engineering.

One way they are forming their opposition is by linking the concept directly to County Commissioner David Madore, who seems only too happy to see his name and photo appearing in the pages of the papers again.

The Lazy C told us in their article on the presentation, “Firm pitches option for Madore’s idea of east county bridge over Columbia,” and that the idea is “Championed by Clark County Commissioner David Madore.”

Mike Briggs & A Bogus Abraham Lincoln Quote

by lewwaters

Apparently getting more desperate, marginal Democrat candidate for the 18th Legislative District, Mike Briggs, is trying to score points as a “friend of labor,” thinking dwindling union support might help his fleeting cause of being elected. In so doing, he posted the following on his facebook page recently;

Chuck Atkins for Sheriff

by lewwaters

Sheriff BadgeAfter careful consideration, I have decided I should make known my choice in this primary election for Sheriff and not to take anything away from any of the other three candidates vying for the office, have determined Chuck Atkins should be elected in November.

This was not an easy decision as I feel all four meet the qualifications, but come November, only one will win the office, two first in the Primary Election facing us.

I was the first to post reviews of the candidates in a three part series based upon questions I presented to all four, here, here and here. The questions were compiled by me on issues I felt would be of importance. All candidates were forthright with their answers and on most issues, not that far apart.

Back Home

by lewwaters

Got back home yesterday afternoon and still tired, exhausted would be more accurate. Enjoyed being in San Antonio and elsewhere, but as was said in the movie, there’s no place like home.

I did spend two days in Peidras Negras Mexico and surprisingly, witnessed no problems at this particular border crossing. That doesn’t mean other locations do not experience them, but for whatever reason, this particular one is not.

It’s good being back home and now, as I rest up, will get back up to s peed on the primary elections. I listed just a few at the top of the sidebar to the right of those I support and will be looking closer into adding more.

VACATION

by lewwaters

Just to let everybody know, I will be out of town for the next week and a half, going to take some time to visit family and a new grand daughter.

I will have my netbook, but will likely not be online a lot, so do not despair, I will approve comments when I can. Sorry for the delay.

I will also read emails as I can.

Flight leaves at 8:30, so early to bed tonight as well.

Keep them on their toes while I am gone :-)

Even Democrats Not Safe From Jim Moeller’s “Garbage”

by lewwaters

I’ve already given a couple examples of Jim Moeller (D 49) own “garbage” he has expressed over time towards Republicans. But his “garbage” has not been reserved solely for the Republicans. Anybody that is not in lock-step with Moeller is subjected to such “garbage.”

For a refresher over this 2012 incident, please see Of “Self Inflicted Wounds” and “Fairly Horrible Experiences” and Why Was Jon Haugen ‘Sanctioned’ By the Democrats?

Will the Hate from the Left Ever End?

by lewwaters

Crying BabyIn spite of their cries of being for every man, being caring and loving and other such bilge, We have seen the Democrats acting more like those Brown Shirts Brian Baird spoke of back in 2009 than anything else.

We see it daily in a small facebook group, “Clark County Citizens for Good Governance, (C3G2) that actually translates out to “Put Democrats back in control.”

Yes, they do not like how the 2012 County elections turned out and two conservatives became the majority on the County Commission and began changing the direction of the county, as asked by the wide majority that elected them.

Jim Moeller’s “Garbage” Pt. 2

by lewwaters

Part two showing some of the “garbage” that has come from Rep Jim Moeller (D. 49) over the years, since he wrote under a Lazy C post,

“I can hardly believe some of the garbage that comes out of (so-called) Republican mouths. It’s time the moderates jettison the religious-right and Tea-Party factions within the Republican party and have them form their own.”

I can’t help but wonder why he campaigned against outgoing President Bush and International issues instead of what he planned to do as a state legislator.

Jim Moeller’s “Garbage” Pt. 1

by lewwaters

Very recently, Rep Jim Moeller (D. 49) wrote a comment under a Lazy C post,

“I can hardly believe some of the garbage that comes out of (so-called) Republican mouths. It’s time the moderates jettison the religious-right and Tea-Party factions within the Republican party and have them form their own.”

With that thought in mind, I looked back at some of Jim Moeller’s own speeches and will be periodically posting video excerpts of the “garbage” we have seen coming from him over the years. First part above.

Carolyn Crain For 49th Representative

by lewwaters

We need to elect Carolyn Crain to the 49th Legislative District. She has been involved deeply for years  and has spoken up on behalf of citizens, Veterans, the elderly and more numerous times, far more than any opponent has.

If anybody can defeat Jim ‘da Taxman’ Moeller, it is Carolyn Crain

Why Private?

by lewwaters

Lew's Blog a

As you all know, I made my blog private again and have not been allowing many people in to view it. That is really not important anyway as I haven’t put much on the blog in the last couple weeks. But, at the risk of being accused of “assuming the fetal position,” “sour grapes,” or “getting bent out of shape” I’ll let you know why.

As most know, even though long accused of being a “Republican lackey” and “Madoreite,” I did expose an effort by the local GOP to selectively stack PCO slots and for that effort, became subjected to a massive smear campaign that I have to believe came from within the local GOP.

The CCGOP Executive Board

by lewwaters

It is unknown just why, but the Clark County Republican Party chooses to not list who their executive officers sitting in control on the Executive Board are, completely unlike before and unlike the Clark County Democrats, but we do know who a couple are, in large part to their outspoken acts. We know Kenny Smith is Chair, Brenda Poletti is Vice-Chair and Christian Berrigan is what they have labeled Operations Director, whatever that is.

But I am also hearing from numerous sources of the recent appointment to the board of Katja Delavar, supposedly in a non-voting capacity to some seat.

With this nomination it would seem a dream from years ago is fulfilled of Katja successfully taking over the local party for Ron Paul as back in 2008, Katja, wife of ex-Washougal city council member and candidate again for the 3rd Congressional District Michael Delavar, was heard promoting strong pro Ron Paul stances in an April 10, 2008 interview with the 911 Truther group “American Underground Network,”

You can listen to the audio of that interview at Katja Delavar AUN 04-10-2008
