When they lose the White House, we must change the electoral college. When they lose the Supreme Court, we must change the number of justices. When they win one congressional seat (from themselves), the people have spoken and we must change our entire economy to socialism.

Quote of the Day: Trump substituts presidential whims for clear and fixed rules, just like Obama

NewImageFrom the Wall Street Journal editorial board:

One reason the economy struggled under Barack Obama is because he stretched the law to serve his ideology. Businesses never knew when a new regulation might hit next, and on what legal basis. Mr. Trump is making the same mistake on trade, substituting presidential whim for clear and fixed rules.

If Mr. Trump invents a national-security threat to justify car tariffs, business should fight back in court and Congress should strip his Section 232 power.

City of Moscow Receives Bids for Third Street Multi-Modal Bridge Project

Via KQQQ

The City of Moscow has received two bids on the Third Street Bridge Project.  The project’s design engineers Keller Associates, had given the city an Engineer’s Estimate of $598,906, plus a 15% construction contingency of almost $90,000.  The low bid of $920,957 was submitted by Clearwater Construction and Management Company, of Spokane.  The second lowest bid was from NNAC Construction of Coeur d’ Alene, for between $976,000 and $977, 0000 dollars, depending on the schedule.

Moscow Public Works Director Les MacDonald will be presenting the bids at the Moscow City Council Meeting on July 16th. MacDonald is expected to recommend that the City Council reject all bids and discussing options with the Council.

Mayor Bill Lambert said, “In the current economic climate, we have seen the costs of construction skyrocket. Despite our disappointment with these high bids, the Third Street Bridge Project and the multi-modal improvements to the Third Street transportation corridor are still a high priority and a goal of the City Council. It is my hope that re-bidding outside of the current construction season will allow us to obtain favorable bids.”

Letter: Democrats are the ‘despicables’

Great letter. Bill nailed it. 

Regardless of whether you’re a supporter of President Donald Trump or not, his winning the presidency has opened our eyes to just how uncivil, hypocritical and sore losers those that lean to the left are.
Turns out they are not the tolerant, peaceful fans of coexistence they would have us believe.
 
Additionally, they don’t seem to be able to make any useful points without the use of vulgarity, ad homonym attacks and whining fits. Observe Maxine Waters or Nancy Pelosi.
If the conservative leaning members of our society are deplorables according to Hillary Clinton, then I guess it’s fair enough to think of the liberal left as the despicables. Many of them are certainly working to earn that label.
