Vancouver, Washington City Council Bids Pat Campbell Farewell

by lewwaters

Pat Campbell, who lost his bid for reelection to the Vancouver, Washington city council in the 2011 election, is given due honors and thanks for his term on city council.

Pat and I have exchanged words more than once and our emails often contained snarky comments to each other, but he did what few others are willing to do. Run for public office and sit in the line of fire from citizens.

Regardless of differences, Pat thoroughly investigated positions he took and more than once, cast votes we could not disagree with and many times brought laughter to council meetings with his “stories.”

Bill Turlay will be replacing Pat and has been very helpful in preparing Bill to take over his seat.

I don’t know what is in Pat’s future, but I hope he sticks around and remains involved.

Syrians Know the Impotence of Barack Obama

Hat Tip to Bad Rachel who states, “5,000 Syrians have been massacred by Bashar Assad since March, including 300 children. How are those sanctions workin’ out, Mr. Obama?”

For the inevitable troll claiming the sign being in English means it must be photoshopped, video of Syrian women protesting in the street carrying a sign clearly stating in English, “USA PEOPLE, YOU LIVED 11 SEPTEMBER ONE TIME, BUT WE LIVE IT EVERYDAY.”

BHO is doing nothing other than kowtowing to the Muslim Brotherhood and other Islamist radicals.
