Whatever happened to common sense?


With the potential of loosing jobs; drastically lowering real estate values; and, tax increases it seems that some of the elected officials of Whatcom County may have the wrong priorities.

    Commonsense is difficult in the face of a constant barrage of fake news and socialistic ideas and downright communism from the mainstream press.

    The green movement is dominated by reds (Marxists) who would like to see nothing developed anywhere.
    Look even at Al Gore, preaching for small environmental footprints, while he lives high on the hog with a larger personal footprint than 100 regular citizens.

    It has been multiply proven he cheated and lied about global warming.

    The only way to attack Greens is to repeat every time you have the chance to call them Marxists, and to explain that Marxism always destroys communities and countries. ALWAYS.

      I am so tired of that “you are not being taxed enough” bull sh*t.

      That article did not mention once one of the 800 lb gorilla in the room – pension liability.

      But what could you expect from the New York Slimes?

      A major reason for the cut in gooberment “services” is that the money is being shifted to fund the pensions. Pensions that those in the private sector can only dream of.

      Let Oregon raise all their taxes and even implement a sales tax and it still won’t change anything. All the money will be pilfered by the politicians.

      In California most local tax increase measures pass and California has the highest sales and income taxes in the country, yet gooberment “services” are still being cut.

    How could Bernie Sanders supporters ever give another dime to support the DHC?

      They are brain dead sheeple and refuse to believe the truth that Demonrats are crooks!

      And btw, professor, speaking of DemonCrooks, Jerry Brownshirt thinks you’re a freeloader, not to mention a liar…

    Property Rights. Means different things to different folks. Not knowing the area you are discussing, it seems to me that Ag. zoned land is free to farm, but not sub-divide into residential lots (sprawl). Sounds to me that Jim believes a property owner should be able to do anything he wants with his ground. That’s a recipe for disaster. imo. Sounds like the farmers don’t want to farm really…….just develop their farms for maximum income.
    Had 10 years experience as a Co. Comm. in a wealthy county. Some of the same problems you are talking about. The Ag primarily stayed Ag. with very minimal development clusters. Taxes stayed low for the actual Ag land. What really helped to quell the excessive demand for housing was the downturn of ’07-08. Today, things are still subdued, thankfully.
