Can Democrats Ever Be Truthful?

by lewwaters

Donkey kissing assDemocrats have long claimed to be “for the people,” but can they really be for the common man when they lie through their teeth on a nearly daily basis?

It has been in the news that the Speaker of the House is suing Barack Obama, having won the approval of the majority of the House to proceed.

And Democrats livid over that prospect have fallen back to their usual flat out, bald faced lies in order to raise funds and smear the effort, witnessed by three emails I have received directly from the Democrat Party below.

Who’s Doing “Stupid Stuff?”

by lewwaters

If Don Benton warning Ed Barnes of the potential of a lawsuit over his vitriolic outbursts is considered “doing stupid stuff,” then what is Ed Barnes threatening to sue every elected official that doesn’t abide by his desires?

Why is there no outcry over Ed Barnes threats like was whipped up over Benton’s?

Update: Protect the Environment, Read a Blog

by lewwaters

Clark Environmental ServicesBy now we all are aware of the controversy down at the Clark County Department of Environmental Services, the trumped up outrage over the lawful hiring of Republican State Senator Don Benton to be the director, the dozens of articles by the Lazy C blasting that hire and now, the tort claim filed on behalf of the woman who was chosen as the interim director, seeking $300,000 from the county.

In spite of what you have read or heard, the hiring of Don Benton was completely legal and well within the scope of the County Commissioners. It also was not a case of two Commissioners directing the County Administrator to hire Benton, as shown previously in the second portion of the post The Great Clark County Collusion Caper Debunked, where you will find an audio clip of the hiring as well as a written transcript.

In spite of what the Lazy C and the regular detractors commenting under articles say, it was well within the Commissioners scope to do so.

Rep. Moeller, “Constituents Make a Sham Out Of the Process”

by lewwaters

It’s no secret that Democrat Jim Moeller, Representative for the heavily Democrat 49th Legislative District in Washington State is pro taxes. We have even nicknamed him “Da Taxman” over this love of hanging more and more taxes on the backs of taxpayers, even though his district is in the 4th year in a row of double digit unemployment.

To combat this ‘tax happy’ attitude of Olympia Democrats, who have maintained a stranglehold on the state government for over a decade now, voters have repeatedly passed constitutional initiatives requiring the legislature to have a two thirds ‘Super Majority’ vote in order to stick more taxes on us.

Each has been discarded by the governor and legislature as soon as legally possible, giving the Democrat majority an easier time taxing us to death.

Enter Tim Eyman’s Initiative 1053 in 2010 once again requiring the legislature to achieve that two thirds majority to impose and raise taxes on us or put them to the voters for a majority vote. The initiative was passed by voters with a wide 64% margin statewide. Locally, including Moeller’s own district he says he represents, it passed by a 71.3 percent margin.

Completely ignoring that the “will of the people” is that the legislature require such a two thirds Super Majority vote for taxes, Special Interests and some Democrats, including Jim Moeller filed a lawsuit against the people’s voice claiming, “Changing the constitution and our right to vote by initiative, no matter what percentage it passed by, is unconstitutional.”

The right to Citizen Initiative is written into the Washington State Constitution, Article II Section 1.

The case was recently argued before King County Superior Court Judge Bruce Heller and is in his hands.

Sorry People, But You Have No “Right” To Other People’s Money!

by lewwaters

As we near the end of the 4th year of the “Great Recession,” seeing the national debt skyrocket and 9% unemployment nationwide being billed as the “new norm,” we once again see Governor Gregoire calling for more tax increases and of course, budget cuts.

We saw her recommend and the legislature pass some pretty deep cuts last year, but now see and hear they didn’t do much good; they didn’t help our ongoing struggles in this deeply recessed economy.

We all know that it is government spending that is the real problem and not the lack of revenue so much, as Democrats always claim in their desire to rape the taxpayers’ wallet even more, but what of those “deep obscene cuts” from last year? Why didn’t they help out as expected?

Jim Moeller, Democrats and Unions vs Washington Voters

by lewwaters

I can’t really say I was surprised to read in the Columbian: Moeller joins lawsuit to overturn Eyman initiative

Just last year, Tim Eyeman’s Initiative 1053 was passed by voters with a wide 64% margin, requiring a 2/3 majority for the Washington Legislature to be able to rise of impose new taxes upon us.

Democrats including 49th L.D. Jim Moeller and Teachers Unions don’t like that and have filed a lawsuit challenging the initiative in court, seeking to have it overturned.

The Columbian tells us, “Democratic leaders could not get Republicans to support any tax increases this year, forcing lawmakers to balance the budget with heavy cuts to education.”

The article also tells us those heavy cuts “reduces salaries for teachers and classified educational staff by 1.9 percent while slashing pay for administrative staff by 3 percent. It suspends programs designed to keep class sizes low.”
