I’m getting emails today. There seems to be a few misconceptions around here. I am going to clean them up. This website is not a news organization, it is an opinion blog. A well read blog, but none-the-less, an opinion blog.
I go out of my way to allow those with differing opinions to comment, as well as pen a well written Guest Editorial when submitted. I need do neither, but I do.
While I do in fact support the protection of the harbor against the coming oil trains, that does not mean that I have suddenly “switched sides” and am now a reliable supporter of the liberal high taxing failed politics associated with the Democratic party around this place. If I had my way they would all be up on charges for destroying this county, fostering the good-ole-boy system, and keeping families in poverty as pets – brought out of their cages every two years to vote as they are told and given treats.
I am tired of the so-called caring left around here forcing retired people on fixed incomes to choose between medication and food to pay for their utopia of wealth redistribution. I am going to fight it everywhere I see it. If you are upset, I highly suggest you find some other place to read.
I don’t care if I like a candidate or not, if they are going to stick their hands in the pockets of the home owners to buy votes, I am going to work as hard as I can to get rid of them. I don’t couch either my motives or actions.
The politicians around here don’t give a twit about those who worked all their lives to buy a small home for retirement and on a fixed income. To them, those houses are theirs to tax to the ground. Two to three hundred dollars a year may not mean much to you, but to some it is the difference between being able to buy Xmas presents for their grandkids or not.
If nobody else will fight for those people and the hard working young families trying to make a better life for themselves, I will. Those who feed at the public trough are well enough represented around here.
Frankly, I’m holding back.
Let me be crystal clear. If you are one of these Democrats who have helped destroy four generations of families in this harbor with your lackeys in the county commission offices, you should immediately drop to your knees, face Aberdeen and Hoquiam, lift your arms in the air and beg forgiveness from the tens of thousands of mothers and fathers that you allowed to pass down to their children the lowered expectation of the life you sell and thrive on. You may have ruined four, but I’ll be damned if I will let you ruin a fifth without a fight.
As for picking one candidate over another. Well tough. I meet them, I ask questions, I observe what they do and what they say – and then make a decision. I then do my write ups and go overboard explaining why I have come to my decisions. I could care less if I like them or not. I don’t do emotional politics.
Never fall in love with a politician, they will only break your heart.
If that isn’t clear enough for you…..go somewhere else.
