Former Deputy Prosecutors Effort to Intimidate County Commissioner Madore Fails

by lewwaters

This blog no longer supports David Madore and calls upon him to resign immediately!

David Madore

Commissioner Madore

It is well known that the three most hated people in Clark County by those desiring to saddle the struggling middle class with more a burden to fund and construct an extension of Portland, Oregon’s financially troubled light rail is Sen. Don Benton (R 17th) and County Commissioners Tom Mielke and David Madore.

While no doubt Sen. Benton remains the single most hated person, likely in the entire state by the powers that be and the local paper of record, the Lazy C, Commissioner Madore is proving to be a close second with them.

Their hate of Commissioner Mielke seems to be on hold for the moment as it appears they may be trying to use him as a wedge, but their hate is there none the less.

Do Polls Only Matter If They Support CRC?

by lewwaters

CRC Poll PiechartAs if we really needed a poll to tell us, recently the Columbian ran an article telling us that most of us would divert to I-205 to cross the Columbia and avoid the tolls planned to soon be in place.

As with most polls, demographics and question wording means a lot when interpreting the results, something the Columbian is quick to bring up now.

Where is Ron Paul’s DD 214?

by lewwaters

Once again we see Ron Paul supporters boasting of his Military Service, 2 years active in the US Air Force as a Flight Surgeon and another 2 in the Air National Guard (the same Air National Guard President Bush was accused of hiding out from the draft and Vietnam service in) as a doctor.

As the undated photo of him in uniform seems to show, he has Captain’s bars on his shoulders, no ribbons and a basic medical corps badge above his left pocket, but no Flight Surgeon Badge.

You might not feel it is relevant to ask to see Ron Paul’s Military Record, but just as with previous candidates who boast of Military Service, as Ron Paul did in the debates with Newt Gingrich, Mitt Romney and others, it is incumbent upon him to support his claim of service.

I have no doubt that he served as an Air Force doctor (Flight Surgeon) for 2 years, from 1963 to 1965 and then finished out with the Air National Guard (1965 to 1968), but since he now makes that service a central part of his campaign, we voters are entitled to know about his service, deployments (if any), character of service and rank attained.

While many say his active service was stateside, RonPaul.com, a major supportive web site claims in their sidebar, “Ron Paul is a proud Air Force veteran. He served as a flight surgeon in the U.S. Air Force from 1963 to 1965 and then in the U.S. Air National Guard from 1965 to 1968. During his military service Ron Paul spent time on the ground in Iran, Pakistan, South Korea, Turkey, Ethiopia and other countries.”
