Lazy C, Against Guns but for Socialism?

by lewwaters

This blog has never shied away from stating how the Lazy C, aka the Columbian newspaper, fails the very community it claims to serve with its bias and ignoring allegations of wrongdoing when it comes to Democrats.

Where they lack in deep investigative journalism locally, they make up by promoting whatever the latest agenda of the left may be.

Case in point, two editorials in the Sunday, Aug 5, 2018 edition, In Our View: Printing Guns a Dire Danger and Fear of socialism distorting nation’s political discourse.

Yes, We Can Coexist With an Oil Terminal

by lewwaters

Oil Can Dollar Sign 1Bomb Trains, Toxic Air, Pollution, Destroying the Environment, Derailment, Fire, Earthquake, we have all been subjected to a steady campaign of fearmongering, followed by boastful claims of how environmental activists have managed to stop job growth for the middle class by successfully convincing cities to not allow terminals that have to do with oil, gas, methanol or pretty much any sort of fuel.

They love to boast of cities in other countries that are “green” and thriving economically.

Our own local envirowacko, Don Charles Steinke can be seen spamming comments under every article pertaining to our own proposed oil terminal at the Port of Vancouver by the Lazy C.

An Oil Terminal, Jobs and Opposing Activism

by lewwaters

Meet Don Charles Steinke, well known in Clark County as an anti-fossil fuel activist. Don is sincere in his activism and is well spoken and well versed in his one point of view.

First, my apologies to Don for singling him out, but I also know he has been chomping at the bit for a chance to spread his message here. A message I personally feel is somewhat misguided.

Might Today’s City Council and Progressives Caused World War Two to be Lost?

by lewwaters

Kaiser 2Listening to the rhetoric coming from the far leftists demanding the proposed oil terminal at the Port of Vancouver to be scrapped, the ominous feeling came over me that if these people, including the four and possibly more current Vancouver City Council Members who have said they oppose it, were around in the 1940’s, World War Two might have been lost.

It is not as much of a stretch as it may sound. Much of their expressed opposition centers around the assumption of a pristine river and river front, fears of pollution to the river and the soil, assumed dangers of the product to workers and those living near the port and more.

In my estimation, fears raised and blown out of proportion to promote their BANANA (Build Absolutely Nothing Anywhere Near Anything thanks John Laird) attitude to force the world to conform to their views.

Preemptive Fearmongering on SCOTUS Obamacare Decision

by lewwaters

Tomorrow is the big day, the United States Supreme Court will announce their decision on the lawsuits filed by several states over Barack Obama’s signature legislation rammed through by a lame duck congress, Obamacare. Or, as Democrats prefer to falsely label it, the Affordable Care Act, the one former Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi famously said we would have to pass in order to see what was in it.

No one knows yet which way the high court will decide on whether the federal government can force citizens into buying a product they may not desire.

The pollsters have been busy, though, polling Americans on what they want to see from the Court. According to the Houston Chronicle,

“Only 10% of Americans expect Supreme Court to uphold all of ObamaCare.”

“33 percent — say they expect the court to uphold portions of the law but strike down the requirement that Americans either buy insurance or pay a fine, the poll finds.”

“18 percent believe that the court will strike down the entire law and send Congress back to the drawing board.”
