As Expected, Government Shutdown Avoided

by lewwaters

Both sides are announcing no government shutdown as they have reached a budget deal,,,,, finally. All of that fearmongering, hyperbole and hate rhetoric from the Democrats to score political points wasted.

Clark Dems Decide to Drag Their Feet On Replacing Quitter Jim Jacks

by lewwaters

Mike Heywood, chairman of the 49th Legislative District Democratic Central Committee assigned the task of replacing Jim Jacks, who abruptly quit his office, abandoning constituents March 25, has put the brakes on filling the empty seat, leaving the 49th Legislative District under represented during session.

Democrats Rep. Jim Moeller and Clark County Commissioner Steve Stuart have urged the “slow-down” according to the Columbian article.

Heywood, who initially favored a quicker replacement of the quitter Jacks now says, “they don’t need the vote in Olympia. As that has become more of a shared opinion, the pressure for speed is off,” indicating how comfortable the Democrats are with their majority an ability to shove through any legislation they desire, constituents be damned.

Moeller, indicating most of the work this session has already been done said, “I think our strategy is to put forward our best candidates.”

More Civility: Dems Call to Dump Trash at Boehner’s House

by lewwaters

In keeping with the call for more “civility” in discourse, fringe Democrats or union goons, have set up a facebook page calling for people to dump their trash on the lawn at Speaker of the House John Boehner’s Washington D.C. house.

In addition to the obvious, aren’t these also the same people always crying about others polluting and not keeping communities clean?
