Lazy C Gets it Wrong, Yet Again

by lewwaters

Light Rail HellRegular readers know that the so called newspaper of record, heavily biased towards strapping the struggling middle class with more expenses in order to pay for forcing the financially failing light rail into Clark County from Portland, is probably one of the least reliable sources of news in the Pacific Northwest.

Hence, they are labeled the Lazy C for not properly vetting or researching many subjects, primarily anything political in nature or critical of the Columbia River Crossing light rail project,

They spare no ink when it comes to maligning critics and in large part, is behind the current brouhaha over County Commissioners Mielke & Madore being blasted daily for over a week now for legally hiring much hated State Sen. Don Benton to head the County Dept of Environmental Services.

Case in point, the latest non-news story to appear in the paper, Legislative candidate registered car, never changed plates, Debbie Peterson blames stubborn screws for delay in replacing Oregon tags.

Yes, she bought a car from Oregon, paid to register here in Washington and had trouble removing the screws attaching the plates, then horror upon horror, forgot about it!

Call the FBI, get Interpol involved, form a lynch mob, a Republican woman “forgot!”
