What We Really Need Is Good Paying Jobs

by lewwaters

Tenement 3Not too surprising to see the Lazy C editorializing in the Sunday edition, “Make Housing Affordable” with, “In order to thrive, our community must accommodate young families, newcomers.”

Wasn’t it years worth of pushing for more and more “affordable housing” that led to the mortgage bubble that burst and saw our economy tank?

How about instead of pushing for more government involvement in housing, government and envirowackos get out of the way and allow some good paying, family wage middle class jobs be created instead of pushing for taxpayer subsidized playgrounds for the wealthy like the concrete jungle planned for the waterfront?

Let’s Stop the BS on the Oil Terminal

by lewwaters

Disclaimer: I am not in the employ of anyone associated with nor have I ever received any support in any form, monetary or otherwise from anybody even remotely associated with the proposed Oil Terminal under consideration at the Port of Vancouver.

Oil, LibertyThere has been a lot of fearmongering going on by those who absolutely hate petroleum, even though they depend on it daily for their own lifestyles. We hear of plummeting property values, bomb trains, blast zones and more as they attempt to instill fear in citizens to block the proposed Oil Terminal.

While there are always inherent dangers in every walk of life, much of what the oil haters are spewing is pure bovine scatology.

Obama Strangling the Middle Class With High Energy Costs

by lewwaters

It seems hardly a day goes by that mixed in with the emails I receive hawking Viagra, enlarging a certain portion of my body, invitations to chat with some 18 year-old hottie (allegedly) and proposals of marriage from Nigerian or Russian ladies offering me millions of dollars, I find something from the Democrat Party or Barack Obama’s reelection campaign telling me how only they are looking out for me and how Republicans want me to die, fund the rich, starve women, enslave Black people or other malarkey.

Listening to what is said in emails seeking donations for the Democrats you would be left with the impression that they and only they care about those of us in the middle class while the Republicans want all of us bankrupt.

So why has the middle class been hurting more since Democrats swept to power in January 2007 and since Barack Obama began his regime in January 2009? Why are we so much worse off with their fixes that were touted as saving us in the middle class?

We know about the housing bubble that finally burst in the waning days of the Bush administration and saw how all of the blame was laid at his feet, even though he repeatedly warned it was coming, only to have efforts to curtail it blocked by Democrats.

Middle Class Lady “Exhausted” Defending Obama

by lewwaters

Obama’s rambling attempt at a snow job reply can be seen HERE

From his reply I hear, “you’re better off now, you just don’t know it.” Obviously, she doesn’t know the “Great Recession” has been over for a year.

Question is, if it has been “over,” why is the economy still in such poor shape and getting worse?
