Bold moves needed by our Bainbridge liberals | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

The saying goes “to love a place, it must be lovely,” running counter to the time-honored tradition of Californication — an asphalt wasteland of over passes and underclasses.

Liberal double dealing is beyond everything. They celebrate diversity, but pull all the basketball hoops in public spaces, which devalue real estate. They claim “no person is illegal,” remaining tight-lipped about the legions of unborn babies flushed down the tubes in abortion mills on a regular basis. They unleash wolves on Eastern Washington ranch land, but won’t consider pulling their own waterfront bulkheads, under the aegis of “saving the environment.” Then there is Wyckoff — when was word one ever said about the working stiffs also contaminated there like death warmed over — were they part of the problem, or part of the pollution?

Dr. Hunter S. Thompson’s grand vision in his ill-fated run for sheriff in Aspen answers our problems by corking off Winslow Way entirely to all automobile traffic (save for the parade), always a win-win situation for tourist traps. The defunct church on Moran Road should be converted into a homeless shelter, already having been utilized in that capacity.

Liberals need to take the bold move of abstaining from looking “as intelligent as the bottom of an empty shoe box” with touchy-feely regulation banning balloons and drinking straws, and kick the habit of improving our fair city’s quality of strife.
