Why Is Light Rail Being Discussed Again?

by lewwaters

Clark County voters defeated a measure to extend Portland’s light rail line into Vancouver in 1995 by a 2 to 1 vote. Beginning in the early 2000’s, light rail became a growing issue and by 2008 it became the “Locally Preferred Alternative” chosen by the C-Tran Board of Directors, Vancouver City Council and the RTC.

Shoreline Democrat Senator Maralyn Chase on her Plastics Ban

by lewwaters

Live interview with senator Chase by KPAM 860’s Victoria Taft, February 16, 2011.

You won’t believe it until you listen to it.

 

 

Senator Chase has submitted SB 5779 would basically ban styrofoam food containers at take out and the plastic flatware you receive with it.

SB 5780 is the anti-plastic bag bill.

SB 5778 would ban certain petroleum based plastic beverage bottles.

If Sen. Chase’s reasoning for banning plastic bags is because of all the plastic bags and such blown up on her car around Olympia and Seattle on I-5, shouldn’t she stiffen littering laws in the center of liberalism for Washington State?

HB 5779 states: “Disposable plastic food service ware” means non-recyclable containers, plates, clamshell-style containers, serving trays, meat and vegetable trays, hot and cold beverage cups, and utensils that are made of plastic or plastic-coated paper and intended only for one-time use, including biodegradable products where any portion is not compostable. Elsewhere it also mentions egg cartons.

I still contend teaching liberals in the Puget Sound to recycle instead of littering the area would be better.

Government Take Over of Food, Restaurants, (Land?) in Offing for Multnomah County. Food As a “Right.”

by lewwaters

Contributed by Victoria Taft, KPAM 860

Think I’m exaggerating? As promised, I’m now blogging what I’ve pointed out all week on the program: on January 27th the Multnomah County Commission will consider the “Multnomah Food Action Plan.” Find it HERE. This trojan horse represents itself as a way to fight hunger while at the same time getting rid of what its authors determine is “unhealthy” food. It puts the government at the forefront of making food related decisions for you; including where you buy it including government sanctioned, “food hubs.” It encourages more people to be put on welfare and government housing. The plan calls for manipulating the urban growth boundary, urging land trusts, and forcing people to grow food on empty lots. It would look better on paper if the authors considered private property rights and individual liberty in their plan, but alas, in the People’s Republic this is a plan that has at its heart, “From each according to his ability, to each according to his need. HERE.” It’s a socialist utopian dream–which has never worked and which seeks to use our money to accomplish it. It makes food–and maybe even shelter–a right. Instead of working, able bodied people will have to do virtually nothing to support themselves. If you think times are financially tight now, just wait till Multnomah County becomes an even bigger welfare magnet than it already is. As Margaret Thatcher once observed, “The problem with socialism is that eventually you run out of other peoples’ money.”

Details of the plan after the jump.

Clark County Conservative Radio Debut

by lewwaters

Today saw the first Southwest Washington Update segment featuring yours truly on Victoria Taft’s radio program, heard on KPAM 860 AM daily, 11:00 AM to 3 PM. I was on about 2:35 PM.

Admittedly I was a bit nervous, but enjoyed the chance to talk about Soutwest Washington and our county and candidates we have running for office. My nervousness seemed to go away once I was talking to my friend, Victoria.

For those who missed the broadcast today, I was able to mention Brian Baird’s death threat being put to rest, first exposed with documents obtained with FOIA by Clark County Politics blog, Brian Peck and Craig Riley’s upcoming events to meet both candidates, the Clark COunty GOP Convention this Saturday, the State GOP Convention in June and our high unemployment.

I think it is great that we in Southwest Washington will have more of our business being heard now, even if only on a weekly basis and thank Victoria Taft and KPAM for the opportunity to update voters on who we have running and what events are coming up.

Be sure to listen in to Victoria’s program daily. She is doing a great job by extending more of her coverage to Southwest Washington.

You candidates, don’t be afraid, just call her and you will be heard.

From our side of the river, call 877-774-5726 and ask to speak on what she is discussing.

Don’t forget, tune in Wednesdays around 2:35 for the Southwest Washington Update.
