Lazy C in Hog Heaven

by lewwaters

Happy PigAlthough results will not be certified for several days, our local Democrat Party mouthpiece, the Lazy C (the Columbian) is elated to see their quest and hate of County Councilor, as well as tons of ink used since November 2012 bashing the duly elected County Commissioners they dislike has worked.

By all accord, controversial County Councilor David Madore was defeated as the Write-in Liz Pike campaign came in last in a three way race.

I did not support that campaign, not because of any problems I have with Madore or Liz Pike, I actually like and respect Liz, but because the campaign itself appeared more of like Sour Grapes since Madore failed in securing a spot in the primary to run for Council Chair.

Portland’s Mayor Adams, “illegal guns have swamped the city”

by lewwaters

After 6 teens were shot in the Albina neighborhood Friday, Portland’s Mayor Adams “says police are out in ‘full strength’ to prevent retaliation.” He also stated, “To be very blunt, illegal guns have swamped the city.”

The Oregonian

I am left perplexed at how such violence continues in the Northwests center of Liberalism, peace, love and tolerance.

Even after Portland Police Chief Mike Reese said in 2010, “I believe we are peacekeepers not law enforcement and that’s my goal,” alleged gang related violence seems to be escalating in Portland, a city that prides itself on tolerance, peace and understanding.

Mayor Adams recently got his 5 new gun control measures approved by city council and still, youth gun violence continues to rise.

Earlier this year, Adams called for Tougher Background Checks on all legal gun transactions, but now he says it is “illegal guns are swamping the city.”

Do you think an ordinance on stricter background checks on all illegal gun transactions would help?

But I am still left wondering just how the Pacific Northwests Mecca of Liberalism, multiculturalism, peace, love and tolerance continues to be besieged by increasing gang related shootings.

No doubt, somehow it’s Bush’s fault.

“Underdogma: How America’s Enemies Use Our Love for the Underdog to Trash American Power” [Review]

by lewwaters

I was recently privileged to receive a copy of the book “Underdogma: How America’s Enemies Use Our Love for the Underdog to Trash American Power” for my review. My thoughts are below.

Our innate sympathy for routing for the underdog is so ingrained in us that we easily miss when those opposed to us twist that regard to strip us of our power and standing in the world. Michael Prell expertly guides us step by step through how those jealous of US Power gently at first, then with more force did just that, twisted our senses to make America the terrorists instead of the radical extremists.

From early news releases shortly after September 11, 2001 to politicians’ claims in campaigns, Prell shows how Americans have been misled to believe that somehow, we are the oppressor instead of the target of terrorism.

Gay activists have remade themselves into an oppressed class crying victim to suppress our natural makeup and legitimize their lifestyle.

Liberals desiring to impose socialism on us and bring us under the authority of a “central command” (the United Nations) have ridiculed our wealth building ability, marginalized our might and twisted the meaning of the words of our constitution.

With ease and the use of several documented quotes, Michael Prell shows us how we have been made out to be the greedy gobblers of energy, ruining the earth’s atmosphere instead of the nation striving the most to curb pollution and purchase goods from other nations, supporting their economies in the process.

So, Now We Can Be Together, Huh?

by lewwaters

Half of America failed last night as they selected a totally inexperienced and unqualified new president. The Socialist Demokratic Politburo is now in complete charge of our beloved country, free to ram their Socialism down our throats.

Offers of freebies stolen from others and handed out reigned supreme as voters fell for the old ‘Robin Hood’ ploy, not realizing or just ignoring that is all just a myth.

Clark County Demokrats, you did your part in selecting offers of free handouts that you will end up paying dearly for in the years ahead. Higher taxes, in spite of promises, are coming, bank on it. Fee increases, tolls, you name it, they are headed your way too as the Politburo rams through their Socialist agenda.

You can thank the Columbian for their part in presenting lopsided ‘reports’ on candidates and your own laziness in not actually checking out candidates that would have fought for you, not Gregoire’s ‘more of the same’ failed leadership and taking care of Puget Sound first and foremost.

Republicans, you have your share of blame too. As Socialist Demokrats went for our jugulars with lies, innuendoes and deceit, you had no stomach to fight back, choosing to “take the high road” to oblivion, at our cost. They fight, we sit back and pray and wait for divine intervention.

Sunday School taught me that ‘God helps those that help themselves.’ Even Jesus told the Disciples to carry arms when traveling for defense.

If you want America back where it became great and not another Socialist third world nation, you better be prepared to fight. You better offer candidates with backbone who will fight fire with fire. Mr. Nice-guy doesn’t win elections; the Socialist Demokratik Politburo proved that last night.

I watched at the Hilton last evening as disappointment was replaced by merriment to party and enjoy your selves, instead of assessing why we continue to lose to Socialists whose empty promises litter our history.

Next door, the Socialist Demokrats were ecstatic at their take over, without a clue of what to do, especially in our presidential race.

Most appalling was there “in your face” sign outside the Ballroom door reading, “Tonight America Came Together.” Does it escape all that for 8 years they wanted NO Togetherness with us? Does it escape you that the only time they speak of being “Together” is when they rule?

Overtures of togetherness from our president were rejected for 8 years, replaced by denigration, demonization and outright lies. And now that they have selected the unqualified and totally inexperienced ‘Homey The President’ to top world power, after going out of their way to mock and destroy private citizens and a decent lady, they claim “Togetherness?”

Sorry, but we are not “Together” and will not be. When the Socialist Demokratik Politburo preaches “Togetherness” it only means “submission” to their agenda of hate and intolerance of the very values that made us a Great Nation.

To you Socialist Demokrats, you can say this is sour grapes, or any other derogatory words you can think of, it’s all you know anyways. But you have only succeeded in dividing America further and this Viet Nam Veteran is mad as hell and not taking it any more.

I lost 13 buddies I personally knew in that war fighting the very ruling class you embrace and owe it to them and the other 58,000 who made the ultimate sacrifice to oppose you to my last breath.

If the GOP rejects this, so be it. I am a conservative long before I am a Republican. I will continue on my own, alone, if need be, but I will not sit idly by and watch as my beloved country falls to communism at your hands.

You set the tone 8 years ago and maintained it throughout the last 8 years. Your chickens are coming home to roost now!

Don’t bother extending you hand to me. When we extended our hands over the last 8 years, you rejected the overtures and slapped us for the effort. I will not submit to your Socialism.

As Sir Winston Churchill said long ago, “Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.

You chose expected freebies, America. What you will receive is:

obama-flips-off-america

Never give in, never give in, never, never, never, never, in nothing, great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honor and good sense. – Sir Winston Churchill

David Carrier: Just Another Tax and Spend Liberal

Although I am not in the 17th District, I feel compelled to address the Senate race there between incumbent Don Benton and challenger, David Carrier.

Benton has served us in numerous terms and desires for us to be able to keep more of our own money, as demonstrated in his July 22, 2008 comment to the RTC Board Meeting and several votes against increasing taxation of Washington Citizens.

Carrier states on his campaign site, “Taxes represent an investment in our future and our children’s future. They are the dues that we pay for education, public services, and infrastructure.”

He goes on to claim, “I support the recommendations of the Columbia River Crossing Task Force for the I-5 replacement bridge,” which include the prohibitively expensive boondoggle of “light rail” from Portland into the Clark College area, which will result in massive tax increases and tolls for what will undoubtedly be a minimal rider ship.

To support this view he quotes a questionable poll, “Recent polls show that a majority of Vancouver residents want to replace the bridge and include public transit.” This poll was a telephone survey of 504 randomly selected households in four counties, three of which are in Oregon. Of the 504 respondents, only 104 actually live in Clark County.

Do you feel 104 accurately represents the thoughts of over 400,000 Clark County residents? Don’t forget, the last time it was brought before the voters, Light Rail was defeated by a 2 to 1 margin. And, Carrier wishes us to fall for we now want it because a majority of respondents in a shaky poll of mostly Oregon residents say they want it?

He goes on to tell us, “Washington’s tremendous wind and solar resources should be tapped to meet future demand for electricity. Wind power is already one of the fastest growing industries in the state, and it’s creating great new jobs.”

Solar resources in the Pacific Northwest? How many cloudy days of rain do we usually get a year? As for wind power, yes it is viable, but not without its own pitfalls. An August 17, 2008 CNN article warns that wind power brings both prosperity and anger to those near the windmills. It wasn’t all that long ago that Robert Kennedy Jr. visited our little community touting the benefits of wind power as an alternative energy source, but neglecting to mention that he and his famous liberal uncle, Ted Kennedy, opposed a windfarm in Nantucket Sound, their boating and pleasure area.

A British resident who recently visited America, Christopher Booker recently wrote in the UK Telegraph,

Since America has already built five times as many wind turbines as Britain, covering thousands of square miles, I checked out how much electricity all those 10,000 turbines actually produce. The answer is around 4.5 gigawatts – not much more than a single large coal-fired power station.”

He doesn’t state where his figures are from, but that is a serious charge, if true.

And, where would Carrier have us place the Wind farm? The Columbia Gorge, where environmentalists won’t allow homes to be built on private land and where the desire to for the land to be kept “pristine?”

Why does it escape the liberal mind that drilling and refining our own oil sources, while we research and develop really viable alternative energy sources will satisfy our energy needs for years?

One of the most astounding, yet predictable charges he makes is, “Climate change is real, and it’s one of the planet’s greatest environmental threats.” Perhaps he missed or disregards that 31,000 Scientists reject the Global Warming Agenda? Or, that Czech Republic President Vaclav Klaus, who spent several years of his own life under Communist control sees that, “the global warming movement was based on shaky science, a distrust of free markets and a preference for central bureaucratic control over individual freedom.”

Does he not know that even very liberal New Jersey sees that New Scientific Data Justifies Repealing their Global Warming Response Act?

He does see that, “Our energy consumption caused [West Africans] to become ‘environmental refugees,’” joining the usual Liberal Klan of “Blame America First” for the worlds ills.

As we can expect from a ‘tax and spend liberal,’ he tells us,

As an economist, I understand that the key to economic growth and security is to invest in our community. We need to provide quality education, job training, affordable housing and health care, and energy independence.”

And how does the liberal accomplish the above? By raising taxes, of course.

Oh sure, they tell us that they will only “tax the wealthy” some more. But, how much more do they intend to tax the wealthy that already pay the bulk of our taxes? Does he not know, as an “economist,” that taxing corporations is a tax on the people through increased prices and services? Corporations and businesses simply pass along taxes and other expenses in the price of the goods and services we purchase.

Finally, he states, “Conservative ideology doesn’t work.”

Odd that it worked and elevated America to the height it has attained for nearly 200 years, before the liberal hippie mindset infected our schools and institutions of higher learning. Odder still is that the Liberal Clintons made quite a bit of money under the conservative presidency of Ronald Reagan.

Don’t be fooled by the glib words of liberals at any stage of government. They think they can rebuild the fallen Soviet Union, only better, if we all just give up our individual liberties, paychecks and lives and live as they say we should.

Carrier states, “I believe in the power of the human spirit,” neglecting that the socialism he advocates destroys that very spirit by “contributing to the common good.” Perhaps unbeknownst to him is that the teaching of “contributing to the common good” isn’t new.

It has been around since 1848 when the Communist Manifesto was published.

Let’s keep our freedoms and liberties and re-elect Don Benton to our State Senate.
