Return to “New Normal”

by lewwaters

Does the recent talk of a “new normal” give you an uneasy feeling deep in the pit of your stomach? Well, it should since through most of the 8 years of the Obama administration we were continually told how higher unemployment, fewer jobs, stagnant economic growth and of course, increased dependency on government for our day to day survival was to be accepted as “the New Normal.”

But it didn’t happen as the left expected. No, over the last three years our country thrived with the highest stock market gains ever, lowest unemployment in decades, astronomical job growth and fewer people relying on government assistance.

That is, until claiming the need to stop the spread of this Coronavirus, governors across the country declared emergencies, issued ‘stay at home orders’ closing many businesses deemed “non-essential,’ closed parks, issued “social distancing orders,” and again forcing people back to reliance on government programs and payments to feed and care for their families.

I’m a Hero, You’re a Hero, Wouldn’t You Like to be a Hero Too?

by lewwaters

Outside an Assisted Living facility

My apologies to Dr. Pepper for highjacking their old lingo, but during this so-called crisis we’re enduring, it appears like everybody has suddenly been declared a hero for simply doing their jobs. The jobs they were hired to do.

While we should be appreciative and show gratitude for those workers stocking grocery shelves or cleaning stores and fixtures, truck drivers for delivering our goods, even those hired to deliver pizza we may order or deliver our mail to our mailboxes, is it really heroics?

Four definitions given by Merriam-Webster dictionary are: a: a mythological or legendary figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability; b: an illustrious warrior; c: a person admired for achievements and noble qualities; d: one who shows great courage.

An Ohio group claims the dictionary definition is “far too stuffy” in their “Tell us about your ‘Daily Hero’” effort.

Carolyn Long, Ill-Equipped, Un-Prepared, Un-Qualified

by lewwaters

Democrat Carolyn Long is once again hoping to unseat Republican Jaime Herrera Beutler and become the Representative for Washington’s Third Congressional District. But in one article appearing in the April 27, 2020 Reflector, she reveals just how unqualified she is as she spouts party-line on the current Covid-19 outbreak.

Long is quoted,

“on the whole Congress representing both parties has done a ‘terrible’ job at preparations for an outbreak such as COVID-19, stressing the importance of maintaining national stockpiles of medical resources as well as adequate funding for the next health crisis.”

“Let’s really invest in preparedness so that when — not if — but when this happens again, we’re not scurrying around for equipment and asking (industries) to do things. I’m glad that they are (helping), we’re all doing our bit, but we shouldn’t have to. We should really rely on the federal government to make sure we’re prepared for the next pandemic.” (Emphasis added)

In just a few words Ms. Long provides a glaring example of why she should never be elected to any office.

Okay, Who Left the Safe Spaces Doors Open?

by lewwaters

After weeks of contentious bickering, last minutes sexual allegations no one could corroborate and much wailing and gnashing of teeth, Brett Kavanaugh was finally confirmed to be our latest Associate Justice to the Supreme Court by a narrow 50 to 48 vote, largely along party lines.

I have to state that in all of my 70 years, this was the most pathetic display of underhanded, unnecessary and outrageous conduct on the part of Democrats I can recall.

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.

Are We Ready to Scrap Capitalism for Socialism?

by lewwaters

The problem with socialism is that you eventually run out of other people’s money.” – Margaret Thatcher

Democratic Socialist of America

It seems many from the left have forgotten the lessons taught to us by history in regards to the old theory of a government based upon Socialism. Socialism is described by a dictionary definition as, “a political and economic theory of social organization that advocates that the means of production, distribution, and exchange should be owned or regulated by the community as a whole.”

The wording actually sounds fairly nice and manageable, but the reality is what has been intended since long ago by Karl Marx and the Marxist theory is, “a transitional social state between the overthrow of capitalism and the realization of communism.”

Those advocating socialism often lecture us as to how fair it is, how we are all equal and we have equality in prosperity and life, escaping the bondage of capitalism where they claim only the wealthy ever prosper from the labors of the poorer workers.

Here Comes ‘Da Taxman’

by lewwaters

Moeller, Spread Watermarked

Jim Moeller

Possibly the worst kept secret in town, long time 49th legislative district representative, Jim Moeller, labeled ‘da taxman’ by this blog due to his love of taxing the middle class (he claims to oppose the B&O tax) has switched his goal from being elected Lt. Governor of our state, as previously announced with his focus now on defeating 3rd Congressional District Representative Jaime Herrera Beutler.

Herrera Beutler, a Republican has held the seat since she was first elected in 2010 after Democrat Brian Baird decided to retire. She has so far held o ff challenges in the primaries from disgruntled Republicans that see her as ‘not pure enough’ and has easily defeated Democrat challengers.

Bernie Sanders Socialist Platitudes

by lewwaters

Received in email from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, titled: “AWESOME Bernie Sanders quote;”

Sanders, Govt's Belongs to People

I guess we are to believe, much like the early Bolsheviks and Marxist convinced the people of Russia in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s, Sanders is and Democrats are for the so-called “little guy,” the struggling middle class worker and even the “professional” poor class in America today.

Nothing could be further from the truth!

Let’s Talk Minimum Wage

by lewwaters

Money 2 Yes, it’s been in the news a lot lately. From SeaTac, Washington imposing their $15 an hour minimum, to Seattle’s Socialist city council critter, Kshama Sawant, who also advocated workers seize Boeing’s factories, run it “and shut down Boeing’s profit-making machine,” the notion has been implanted in people’s heads, just in time for the mid-term election.

As usual, the entirely socialist idea is coming primarily from Socialist Democrats as they once again try to mislead voters to turn the country more to their control as we keep sliding closer and closer to a full-blown Communist Nation.

And what with the Republicans in the U.S. Senate blocking the latest effort to forcibly increase a wage minimum in America, we can expect Democrats to make the most of it they possibly can, portraying themselves as so benevolent and seeking to protect workers while they paint Republicans as demonic, evil and uncaring, as usual.

Lazy C “Capitulating” to One-Party Rule

by lewwaters

Commie 2As if we didn’t already realize that the Lazy C, the alleged ‘news’paper of Southwest Washington was little more than another leftist shill, an unofficial daily newsletter for the Democrat Party, the Sunday Jan. 5, 2014 “In Our View: Boehner Finds His Footing” gives ample evidence of it.

In praising Speaker of the House, Republican John Boehner, they say, “An emboldened John Boehner, after years of capitulating to the right wing of his party, suddenly has turned into The Most Interesting Man in Politics.”

Have you ever read or heard of anybody from the Lazy C, or any of the dinosaur lamestream media ever complain or even mention of Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi or even a local elected Democrat “capitulating to the left wing” of their party?

In fact, have they ever even hinted that the Democrat leftist agenda might be too far left and should “moderate?”

BREAKING NEWS ALERT: The Sun Came Up

by lewwaters

When I got up this morning, there was light in the sky and the sun had risen in the East as it has every day of my 65 years. Yep, just another day. There was no Revelations apocalypse after the government shutdown, nor did some dark beast come to gobble up little children and old people like Democrats have claimed. (With thanks to Commissioner Steve Stuart)

Judge Rules Against Citizen’s Light Rail Petition Effort

by lewwaters

Rice, light rail suit defeated

Since when does the voice of the people matter in this New People’s Republik of Vancouver? Until you people are sick enough of it to stand up, you remain spineless creatures dutifully do as Massah tells you to do.

Surprised at this decision? Don’t be. Just yesterday this same judge said: “even if the measure was passed by voters it wouldn’t stop light rail. If the state wants light rail as part of a highway project, then the city doesn’t have the right to say no.”

Note, he said nothing about you, the people. Just the “state” and the “city.”

Trayvoning of America

by lewwaters

Trayvon SkittlesOne thing we know the left is masters at is creating new words that make the rights effort out to be overbearing, dumb, ridiculous and to demean our traditional values at any cost.

For example, when we stood up as a ‘Tea Party’ movement, they swiftly labeled us as “Teabaggers,” knowing the word was a code word for a homosexual practice that most of us had never heard of. The steady use of it ended up demeaning our efforts and the willing lamestream media readily joined in.

The Tea Party movement today is a mere shadow of what we started out to be.

We now see the left spreading hysteria across the country over the acquittal of neighborhood watch captain, George Zimmerman for the self defense shooting death of 17-year old Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida as protests broke out almost immediately and invoking the name of the youth, even though not one of those out in the streets crying and whining over have a clue who or what he was or may have been.

Voters? We Don’t Need No Stinkin’ Voters

by lewwaters

Pile Driver 1Either the fix is in or someone has been given the word that construction of a new bridge is likely a sure thing.

I received word today from a well connected source that a “worldwide mega-corporation” is making calls locally to ensure there will be 800 pile drivers on hand by fall of 2014 to “begin construction on a bridge across the Columbia River between Oregon and Washington.”

This has not been confirmed by an “official” but the source is very well connected to be included in inside information.

It is unknown if this is a move to just be ready in case the CRC is funded or if the go ahead has been given at the highest of levels to build it.

What Happens in Olympia Doesn’t Stay in Olympia

by lewwaters

washington-sealOnce again we see another legislative session in Olympia, Washington winding down with the usual prospect of going into special session to get important matters finished that for some reason, couldn’t be finished in regular session.

We see prospects of the special session centering around budgeting even though revenues are forecasted to exceed expectations by some $2 Billion, but are still over $1 Billion short of what spending is projected to be.

Last session the budget was put off due to focusing too much on homosexual marriage. Previous years we saw it put on hold until towards the end for a variety of reasons. We saw other pieces of legislation being placed in front of it, from tax increases, selection of a state rock or an official state dirt to drivers’ licenses for illegal aliens, several matters seemed to be placed before working out the budget.

From The ‘Melting Pot’ To A ‘Boiling Pot’

by lewwaters

A post I originally wrote elsewhere on October 4, 2007. Since then, Democrats took full control of the country for 2 years and still retain the White House and Senate. We continue down the slide Seen 5 years ago.

In 1908 a Jewish immigrant from England named Israel Zangwill penned a play titled “The Melting Pot.” The play itself has long been forgotten, but the message it instilled is heard to this day. It portrayed that all immigrants could be transformed into Americans, blending cultures and together achieving a Republic and building of a nation like no other before in man’s history.

A portion of our citizens were denied access to the Melting Pot dream for over half of the twentieth century, but as happens in a growing nation, the correction came and they were also able to take part in the dream of being an American fully.

Seeing that some of our citizens were denied access to the Melting Pot, other citizens deemed the Melting Pot dead or a myth and started pushing for what we now see as “multiculturalism.” Lost in this push is the unique Americanism that built the nation and elevated it to the greatness she held for a short time.

Washington State Joins the Growing List

by lewwaters

Residents in over 20 states have now started petitions of secession from the United States of America, sending Washington D.C. the message they are very displeased with this “New Direction” we have been set on.

Washington State has joined the list at WhiteHouse.gov

From ignoring our voices over the CRC and suing us to invalidate our votes on the 2/3 requirement to increase taxes, to our constitutional rights of religious liberty, Obamacare being forced upon us against our will, support of the International Treaty that would place our right to arm ourselves be subjected to foreign interests, our government no longer represents our right to Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness.

Oh America, What Have You Done?

by lewwaters

Do you ever find yourself sitting down, conflicted on sacrifices made in the past and wondering why any such sacrifices were made after seeing those sacrifices in essence thrown right back in your face? That is where I sit now, on the eve of Veterans Day 2012 and seeing how our recent elections turned out.

I think of all of the hardships we endured over the years defending this nation from Communist aggressors, standing up against them in foreign lands and more than once, engaging them on the battlefields of Korea and Vietnam. I recall the aid poured into other countries to assist them in their struggle against such oppressive foreign interference and how we stood our ground during the Cold War in Europe, President John F. Kennedy’s inaugural words ringing in my ears, “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty.”

JFK must be turning in his grave as we now see the country being handed over to leaders who have shown that the very oppressive government we fought and stood up against for so long is what a majority of our citizens now desire, believing that offers of “free stuff” is better than actually working for yourself.
