Mayor Leavitt Declines Open and Transparent Discussion With CRC Skeptics

by lewwaters

Ask any conservative in Southwest Washington about the reliability of the newspaper of record in Clark County, the Columbian, when it comes to political coverage and you will likely be met with laughter. The blatant left lean of the paper has many of us dubbing it the unofficial daily newsletter of the Democrat Party.

Nowhere is this better seen than the papers continued promotion of the largest and most expensive boondoggle to ever hit Southwest Washington, the Columbia River Crossing being shoved down citizens’ throats to force acceptance of Portland, Oregon’s financially troubled light rail into our community.

In spite of 3 past votes in the county declining light rail, once directly in 1995 and twice indirectly in 2002 and 2004, it came out in a recent Oregon Supreme Court ruling that the sole reason for project is to force their light rail into our community along with the desire that Clark County residents pay for operations and maintenance of the new line all the way from Oregon’s Expo Center, across the state line and into our community.

In spite of costing so far nearly $150 Million in studies, several deficiencies continue to crop up that even though reported in the pages of the Columbian, are marginalized along with any who speak out questioning the validity of such an undertaking, skeptics often dubbed with such pejorative descriptions as “the Hounds of Whinerville” and “ankle biters” by Editorial Page Editor, John Laird.

Jim Moeller Declares Vancouver a “Thriving Queer Mecca”

by lewwaters

Under the guise of “Gateway to Equality,” homosexuals will descend on Esther Short Park, Saturday July 14, 2012 for their 18th Annual LGBT Pride Event and issuing the call of “Come Celebrate LGBT Pride at America’s Only ‘Family Friendly’ Pride Event.”

In the invitation to the event, posted by none other than our own 49th legislative district representative Jim Moeller says of the event, “As proof of Vancouver’s rise as a thriving queer mecca, Advocate.com recently named the city the sixth most gay-friendly city in America, making it the top West Coast city for LGBT people.”

“Queer Mecca” Jim? Is that what homosexual’s see our community as now, a Mecca for queers?

Besides being a city in Saudi Arabia, Mecca also means “A place that is regarded as the center of an activity or interest.” If Vancouver really is a “Mecca for Queers,” can they rightfully retain their “Protected class” status over others? Wouldn’t they be the majority in this newly declared “Queer Mecca?”

And what of Jim’s use of the word “Queer?” Why does he describe his orientation as “Queer” when if I did, I am committing hate speech?
