Just a quick curious thought, considering that for once, the Lazy C gets it right in their editorial In Our View: Right to Work = Freedom (even a broken clock gets it right twice a day), and the usual slate of Liberal Democrat union lackey’s flock into the defend workers being forced to pay extortion in the form of union dues in order to hold a job.
But, considering that the Democrat Party employs people for various positions, what union represents their workers? Who do employees of the Democrat Party pay extortion to in order to work there?
Surely such a pro-union political party would gladly allow union representation for their paid employees, wouldn’t they?

As this blog and others have been saying, the Home Rule Charter has absolutely nothing to do with any so-called “Good Governance,” but is wholly about Commissioner Madore, now admitted to in Charter Yes latest ad
It is ludicrous to want to change government every time someone wins an election you do not like. We would never have any sort of government.
You can save Clark County from this Democrat power grab by voting NO on the Home Rule Charter

By now, most people in the country realize what a total failure Obama has been. Ebola threatening to spread, the Middle East coming unglued with ISIS beheading and murdering throughout the region, the national debt reaching $18 Trillion, participation in the labor force at an all-time low and so much more.
In fact, even many Democrats seem to feel he has become completely disconnected with several distancing themselves in hopes of winning reelection in a year that looks like may become a complete route for Republicans again.
According to Monica Stonier, back in 2008, she was completely enamored with and declared dedication to Obama, as evidenced below;

Democrats have long claimed to be “for the people,” but can they really be for the common man when they lie through their teeth on a nearly daily basis?
It has been in the news that the Speaker of the House is suing Barack Obama, having won the approval of the majority of the House to proceed.
And Democrats livid over that prospect have fallen back to their usual flat out, bald faced lies in order to raise funds and smear the effort, witnessed by three emails I have received directly from the Democrat Party below.

If Sharon Wylie, Jim Moeller and Annette Cleveland all agree that only “some of the things they do makes sense,” does that mean they realize some of the other things they do make no sense at all?
Don’t you agree it is time we elected people that will work to do things that “make sense” all of the time?

By now we all are aware of Lazy C editor Lefty Lou Brancaccio’s bullying and demeaning of those he despises every week in his so called editorials.
But this sort of over the top bullying from him is not something new, he’s done it many times before.
In fact, this blog called him on it back in November 2010 when a ‘Moderate’ Republican, the very thing he also calls for from Republicans, was the target of his vitriol over announcing he had cancelled his subscription: Lou Brancaccio and Chicago Bullying Tactics?

Words spoken by Washington State Representative Sharon Wylie (D. 49) during a February 19, 2014 Tele-Town Hall held by her and fellow Democrats, Representative Jim Moeller and State Senator Annette Cleveland
Does she mean that they think the rest of things they do makes no sense?

As expected, Senate majority leader, Democrat Harry Reid invoked the “nuclear option” ending filibusters against Obama’s activist judicial nomination.
Speaking on the Senate Filibuster, Reid said,
“Since 1790, the filibuster has been employed hundreds and hundreds of times.
Senators have used it to stand up to popular presidents. To block legislation. And yes – even to stall executive nominees.
The roots of the filibuster can be found in the Constitution and in the Senate rules.
Mr. President, the filibuster is a critical tool in keeping the majority in check. This central fact has been acknowledged and even praised by Senators from both parties.

The Lazy C’s Greg Jayne says in his column today, “That 2010 election, when Republicans took control of the House, served as a harbinger of the rancor that has followed in Washington, D.C.”
While I appreciate his editorials much more than the bombastic, vitriolic, hate everything right of Mao John Laird, I must take exception to that sentence. The real rancor started in earnest right after Al Gore lost to George W. Bush in 2000 and has not abated since.
From years of “Kill Bush” to erroneous cries of “stolen election,” Democrats went on an all out assault against anything Republican or remotely conservative.

Good old Jim “sue your constituents to invalidate their votes” Moeller (D. Portland/Vancouver), ever the narcissist, is a master at diversion to make others look bad, while minimizing how he and those he aligns himself with may personally benefit off of the public’s money.
Second to none in arrogance, we have seen Jim put off projected in excess of $1 Billion budget gap to push through homosexual marriage, denying he would take advantage of it himself, successfully joined in a lawsuit to invalidate the vote of constituents and others in the state who have 5 times voted in a 2/3 majority requirement for the legislature to increase our taxes, worked diligently to strap Clark County citizens with higher taxes, increased license fees, tolls, increased gas prices and much more to force acceptance of Portland, Oregon’s financially troubled light rail and more, all the while portraying himself as some sort of ‘watchdog’ for the public good.
When it was revealed earlier this year of legislators writing off the expense to dry clean their clothes to taxpayers while in session Moeller was quoted saying, “dry cleaning is similar to other items [I] can expense, such as food or lodging, while the Legislature’s in session,” adding he considers what he wears during session as “his uniform.”

The political bias of the Lazy C, the Columbian newspaper has been established several times on this blog and others. In spite of that, Editor Lou Brancaccio still tries the spin that they are not biased and in fact are “friend to nobody.”
We know that is not truthful as all we have to do is look over the many years they promoted the now defunct Columbia River Crossing light rail project while diligently working to hide and cover-up many negatives, if no marginalize them.
They are well known to be little more than a daily newsletter for the Democrat Party and once again, we see their blind partisanship glaring at us from the front page of the Sunday, July 7, 2013 edition with the article Political parties take increasingly active role in nonpartisan elections.

Clark County Washington is the largest county in what is considered Southwest Washington with a population nearing 450,000 people. With people often hungry for news, one would think an impartial news source would thrive catering to that population.
Unwittingly, the local newspaper of record, the Columbian, better known as the Lazy C reveals that they are considered a “mid-sized daily newspaper with a circulation between 25,001 to 65,000,” or at best less than 15% of the county.
While many reasons could be listed for such a minimal circulation in the county, partiality and lack of interest in many issues of concern has to be given attention.
While accused of being politically left and constantly denied by the Editor, it doesn’t take much looking to see that they indeed are a mouthpiece in favor of Democrats instead of an impartial source of political views.

Fresh off of his Friday March 22, 2013 closed door meeting with select supporters of the Columbia River Crossing project, the massive light rail extension project from Portland, Oregon that will leave Clark County’s struggling middle class taxpayer’s paying for decades on a project they voted down, Washington State’s newly elected Governor Jay Inslee released his awaited budget proposal today, March 28, 2013.
Apparently not content that the cost of the CRC is expected to hit as high as $10 Billion, once interest on bonds and cost over runs are factored in, Inslee’s budget proposal includes several tax increases, extensions and converting temporary tax increases into permanent tax increases, just about all of which will end up on the backs of the very middle class taxpayer Democrats continue to claim they support.
It was just prior to his inauguration in January 2013 that Inslee was citing no tax increases would be needed for him to handle the projected budget shortfall that is now exceeding $1.2 Billion, again.
Very craftily, he left open the idea of eliminating some tax breaks.
