When the Shoe Is On The Other Foot

by lewwaters

Dem Jackass 3It never ceases to amaze me seeing the blatant double standard practiced by Democrats today.

I received a notice by email from Politico stating, “Senate Republicans have blocked the nomination of Robert Wilkins to the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals, the third such rejection to the court in three weeks. Wilkins failed to garner 60 votes to break the GOP filibuster, 38-53.”

“The fight over judges could spill over into another confrontation over changing Senate rules by a majority vote, in which Senate Democrats seek to curtail the GOP’s filibuster use by invoking the so-called ‘nuclear option’.”

For refutation of their threat of the so-called “nuclear option,” let’s look at some words spoken by the former sweetheart of the Democrat party, now deceased, Senator Ted Kennedy of Massachusetts, from back in 2005 when the Democrats were blocking judicial nominations left & right.

Light Rail: Bliss, Blight or Just Out of Touch?

by lewwaters

Many of us have alleged for some time now that the Lazy C is totally out of touch with the community they claim they serve. If subscribers that do not buy into the agenda’s pushed by the Lazy C aren’t being labeled ‘Hounds of Whinerville,’ they’re censored in commenting under certain articles.

The Lazy C shows just how out of touch they are with Clark County in the headline run in their Monday June 10, 2013 edition.

Voters? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Voters

Pile Driver 1Either the fix is in or someone has been given the word that construction of a new bridge is likely a sure thing.

I received word today from a well connected source that a “worldwide mega-corporation” is making calls locally to ensure there will be 800 pile drivers on hand by fall of 2014 to “begin construction on a bridge across the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington.”

This has not been confirmed by an “official” but the source is very well connected to be included in inside information.

It is unknown if this is a move to just be ready in case the CRC is funded or if the go ahead has been given at the highest of levels to build it.

From The ‘Melting Pot’ To A ‘Boiling Pot’

by lewwaters

A post I originally wrote elsewhere on October 4, 2007. Since then, Democrats took full control of the country for 2 years and still retain the White House and Senate. We continue down the slide Seen 5 years ago.

In 1908 a Jewish immigrant from England named Israel Zangwill penned a play titled “The Melting Pot.” The play itself has long been forgotten, but the message it instilled is heard to this day. It portrayed that all immigrants could be transformed into Americans, blending cultures and together achieving a Republic and building of a nation like no other before in man’s history.

A portion of our citizens were denied access to the Melting Pot dream for over half of the twentieth century, but as happens in a growing nation, the correction came and they were also able to take part in the dream of being an American fully.

Seeing that some of our citizens were denied access to the Melting Pot, other citizens deemed the Melting Pot dead or a myth and started pushing for what we now see as “multiculturalism.” Lost in this push is the unique Americanism that built the nation and elevated it to the greatness she held for a short time.

Oh America, What Have You Done?

by lewwaters

Do you ever find yourself sitting down, conflicted on sacrifices made in the past and wondering why any such sacrifices were made after seeing those sacrifices in essence thrown right back in your face? That is where I sit now, on the eve of Veterans Day 2012 and seeing how our recent elections turned out.

I think of all of the hardships we endured over the years defending this nation from Communist aggressors, standing up against them in foreign lands and more than once, engaging them on the battlefields of Korea and Vietnam. I recall the aid poured into other countries to assist them in their struggle against such oppressive foreign interference and how we stood our ground during the Cold War in Europe, President John F. Kennedy’s inaugural words ringing in my ears, “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

JFK must be turning in his grave as we now see the country being handed over to leaders who have shown that the very oppressive government we fought and stood up against for so long is what a majority of our citizens now desire, believing that offers of “free stuff” is better than actually working for yourself.

Romney, The Only Choice

by lewwaters

Within the next 48 hours we should know who the next president will be. In spite of there being multiple choices on the ballot, it boils down to Republican Mitt Romney or Democrat Barack Obama who has led the country deeper into oblivion this last 4 years and currently trying to tell us how much better off we are.

Regular readers know that Mitt Romney was not my first choice, but he is who has prevailed through the primary elections and tedious process to come out ahead of several others as the countries choice to face Obama.

Throughout the process, Romney has articulated a different approach from that of Obama and the Democrats, one that I firmly believe will turn the country around and get us back on track to solvency and prosperity. One that will actually begin lowering the burgeoning unemployment rate we have seen over the last 4 years.

Obama came to office with high promises of “Hope & Change” and has failed. The Hope is gone, replaced by despair, higher unemployment than when he took office, more people dependent upon food stamps than ever before and a national debt increase in 4 years higher than any other president added in 8 years.

We should all be entitled to [insert favorite want here]

by lewwaters

Just about any parent can tell you tales of how their children, when small were unable to comprehend that just wanting something did not entitle them to just take whatever it was. That is part of a parents job in raising a child, teaching them that nothing is free and we are not allowed to just take as we wish.

Many that did were disciplined in one way or another, hand slapped, spanked, stood in the corner or being made to return the item to rightful owner, most often something snuck off of the shelf of a store when the parent turned away to get something to purchase.

But we learned not to just take and that if we want something, we had to work for it. Having worked for whatever it was, we then actually appreciated it and took care of it, having spent sometimes several hours laboring away to earn the money to buy the item as it rightfully became ours.

It is an attitude as old as time itself indicated in the Bible and other religious writing from long ago. It’s time tested and helped form functioning and orderly societies. That is, until recent years.

It seems somewhere along the way, some “brilliant” minds decided that simply wanting something established a right to ownership. The concept of our rights being limited to “Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness” was replaced by “I want, I should have.”

Moveon.org To Train Occupiers

by lewwaters

If you still believe the Occupy “movement” was spontaneous, think again. It’s all orchestrated by those who have long sought to destroy America as we know it and rebuild a socialist society.

The following email I received from Moveon.org explains their goal along with asking for our money to do it.

As for their words of “nonviolence?”

Don’t you believe it.

Democrats Shameless Support of the Occu-Twits

by lewwaters

For a group that continues to claim no leadership and being non-partisan, it is obvious that partisanship is what fuels the mobs.

If you believe this is a newly formed mob, you’re wrong.

Vietnam Claims 40,000 Deaths From Old Munitions, But Ignore Millions of Deaths After the Communist Takeover

by lewwaters

It’s always heart wrenching to read or hear of deaths long after a war’s end, due to forgotten and discarded munitions. We still occasionally hear of the discovery of old munitions left from World war One and World War Two. I imagine that is why Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung says of the war that ended in with the communist take over 36 years ago, “The war’s painful legacy, which includes hundreds of thousands of tons of bombs and unexploded ordnance, continues to cause painful casualties every day.”

Dung claims 100,000 Killed, Hurt by Abandoned Weapons since the end of the Vietnam War in April 1975.

The ABC article is quick to point out, “The United States used about 16 million tons of bombs and ammunition while allied with the former South Vietnam government.”

We also read in the article, “Bui Hong Linh, vice minister of labor, war invalids and social affairs, said explosives remain on about 16 million acres (6.6 million hectares) of land, or more than one-fifth of the country.”

What is not said, and possible unable to determine is how much of those discarded munitions are actually not U.S. munitions, but landmines and other munitions laid their by the communist North Vietnamese to kill or wound American and South Vietnamese Troops during the many years of their struggle to remain a free people? Munitions built by the communist North Vietnamese as well as those supplied them by the former Soviet Union and Communist China?

Occupy Vancouver – Selected Comments

A few of the comments from the over 40 people who spoke at the Occupy Vancouver “non-partisan” event today at Esther Short Park, in beautiful downtown Vancouver, Washington.

Nothing new, it’s all been seen before THOSE “SIXTIES” HIPPIES

And, it will end up the same if people don’t stand up.

The Disconnect of Occupy Wall Street

by lewwaters

The longer these “Occupy Whatever” protests go on, the more disconnected the “occupiers” seem to be. Now that they have decided to release their “demands” and another work in progress document, The American Peoples New Economic Charter I am left wondering how these people expect to be taken seriously.

At one point in their documents, they call for an end to private sector student loans, saying such loans should be wholly subsidized. Later, they want forgiveness of the very loans they took out then state, “Get Wall Street out of the private student loan business and maintain fair and reasonable public loans for all students who need them.”

They ask for “Education should be funded with some of the $2 billion/week that goes to war-funding. At least 50% of it.”

They expect, “Socialize undergraduate level college. Make failing impossible to assure that everyone has the same chance in the work place post-college.”

They want to see, “Repeal “No Child Left Behind” [NCLB is basically a corporate $ maker. Make all education free from cradle-grave.”

Marxist Protesters Stop Civil Rights Icon, Rep. John Lewis (D. Ga) from Speaking

by lewwaters

From the YouTube description:

“Many curious citizens and media outlets came to the first Occupy Atlanta event, and were visible shocked and confused by the consistent Marxism employed by the group. People abandoned their individuality and liberty to be absorbed into a hypnotizing collective. The facilitator made it clear that he was not a “leader” and that everyone was completely equal; words often spoken by leftists, but in this case they actually applied their philosophy. Into this surreal and oppressive environment, Rep. John Lewis, a civil rights hero and icon of American leftism, came to speak as has so often done at left-wing rallies and events in Atlanta. He is practically worshiped in Democrat circles, and was visibly stunned to see these Marxists turn him away. It was reminiscent of previous Marxist revolutions in history when those who ignorantly supported the revolutionaries are, over time, purged and rejected for the “good of the collective”, when their usefulness has expired.”

Fine Tuning Ignorance

by lewwaters

Poet and Philosopher George Santayana is credited with the quotation, “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it” early in the 20th century. In various forms, it has been repeated since in an effort to warn people to educate themselves in historical matters, one most notably being “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to relive it” in an epigraph by William L. Shirer in his epic book, “Rise and Fall of the Third Reich.”

Many of us, during our years in school, found history to be a boring subject. It brought little interest and we couldn’t wait to get through the lesson for recess, lunch or something more interesting to us. I know my own interest in the subject didn’t pique until the 10th grade when I had the good fortune of being taught World History by Mrs. Pauline Watkins in her final year of teaching before retirement from South Broward High School in Hollywood, Florida.

Tragically, it was in her class that we saw a sad day in our own history unfold as President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas.

Perhaps that is why seeing the ignorance, the lack of education and paying attention to World History irritates me as it does as once again, we see masses of people taking to the streets and “occupying” parks, centers and even Wall Street with their unrealistic demands, some not even knowing why they are protesting, just going along with the flow.

Union Rent-a-Thugs Descend on Southwest Washington

by lewwaters

AP photo by Don Ryan

Ports up and down the Columbia River appear under siege by bused in thugs of the International Longshore and Warehouse Union as union goons escalate their dispute with the EGT Company at the Port of Cowlitz in Longview, Washington.

Union thuggery breaking out in Southwest Washington has attracted national news media as the Wall Street journal, the Associated Press and Fox News are covering the union goons storming the port, breaking down gates, to smashing glass to overpower security guards they held hostage for a few hours in the wee hours of the morning, Thursday September 8, 2011. From there, bussed in thugs rolled out train cars, cut brake lines and dumped food grain on the ground.

This is an escalation from Wednesday where hundreds of goons first stopped and blocked the train as it came through Vancouver Washington. Once it continued on, other goons blocked the train at Cowlitz County, tangled with the Police and vandalized the train. 19 union goons were arrested.

Progressivism: Not Your Grandpappy’s Movement. Or Is It?

by lewwaters

I find myself admiring a person like Carolyn Crain. A woman who has the guts to stand up before city council and county commissioners and give them a piece of her mind. And, she has no problem poking a stick into the hornets’ nest of leftists in Clark County by expressing her mind and calling them out.

She has at least twice now drawn the attention of the Columbian’s acerbic editorial page editor John Laird understudy, Stephanie Rice HERE and HERE. But, she really stirred the hornets’ nest with a letter to the editor, Disappointed with representation wherein she concluded, “Last time I checked the progressive movement was a warm and fuzzy word used by the Communist Party here in the USA.”

Her letter drew a few negative comments from those who disagreed with her view and spawned a rebuttal letter, Progressives move nation forward that really lit off a couple leftist hornets’ taking exception to other comments on today’s Progressive movement and quotations from former president Theodore Roosevelt, a Republican who is credited with launching the Progressive movement.

Much like the anti-war left did a few years ago when they embraced former Republican President Dwight D. Eisenhower and one sentence he spoke in a farewell address as President, Roosevelt has been thrown at conservatives several times also by leftist due to his Progressive policies over a century ago.

Leftist claiming to also be Progressive are real quick to deny they adhere to either Socialist or Communist policies, pointing to the dictionary definition of both and ignoring the blending of political views together.

Some Americans Are Too Rich?

by lewwaters

Redistribute the wealth? When does Baucus, Dodd, any of the Kennedys, Kerry or any one of the socialist Dictacrats begin redistributing their own obscene wealth? Shouldn’t they show their sincerity by redistributing their own first?

The 50 Richest Members of Congress

From Roll Call,

“Although Baucus ranks last in the chamber’s tally, District of Columbia property records show he sold his Georgetown home in late April for $2.1 million, shortly after he announced his divorce from his wife, Wanda. D.C. property records also report Baucus purchased a new three-bedroom Capitol Hill home in June, now valued at $907,000. Baucus will not be required to reveal these transactions in next year’s filing.”

Is Baucus hiding his wealth while trying to take yours?

Wake up, America.

Sen. Feinstein: Congress Has “Unlimited Authority” to Mandate Health Insurance

by lewwaters

For all Americans who thought our constitution placed limitations on government, think again now that the dictatorial Democrats have seized complete and total control of the country.

With attitudes like Senator Dianne Feinstein displays, you are no longer a free people, but servants of the Socialist Democrats.

VIDEO SOURCE

If Democrats now believe they have “UNLIMITED Authority” to impose whatever they wish upon us in healthcare, what else do they feel they have “UNLIMITED Authority” to take, mandate or push off on us?

Let it not be forgotten, this is the same Senator Feinstein who just days ago introduced legislation to block a solar farm power plant construction in her backyard, the Mojave Desert.

Yet, this is also the same Senator Feinstein who adamantly opposes drilling oil for our energy too!

Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, Nikita Kruschev and others must be smiling from their graves as they see their premonition coming true, “we will bury you.”
