The official state song of Washington sings like folksong climate-charged diatribe of the late 20th century, “From a distance, what a wonderful world,” the disgusting magnitude of idealism and contrived hope evident with each mawkish lyric inciting a pandemic of liberal guilt. Washington Governor Jay Inslee, a student of the debilitating peace movement of the mid 1960’s has public adopted the agenda of acting as a self-promoting steward for the climate, and instead of basing decisions and policy and science and research, is influenced by emotion and ideology in drafting and enacting mandates that assault the finances of tax-payers, while actually causing more harm than good to the environment. The irony is not lost on public watchdogs who regularly ingest and process the blatant indiscretions of the career politician, who is apparently oblivious to the idea of term limits.
Under Inslee’s aggressive climatological campaign, facial recognition riders are included in a carbon credit bill which bilks electric vehicle owners through a deviously staggered tax scale, the future of hydroelectric power and agriculture in the state is threatened by the proposal of removing dams, and drivers of gas powered cars are subject to egregious hikes that indirectly target working class families and small businesses. Putting the proverbial cherry on top of the sundae of disarray, the Governor still maintains his emergency powers, duration that has spanned over 800 days since he awarded himself with the distinction at the infantile stages of the pandemic. Already internet historians are combing the search engines for the veritable electronic counter honoring Inslee’s distinction of overbearing arrogance.
In guileless attempt at societal engineering while instilling a perceptible magnitude of guilt for the simple act of driving a car and shaming the concept of commuting, the official policy in Washington that roads are bad and vehicles are even worse if they are not electric is the pervading theme emanating from the capitol.
By caving into the tech lobby with European style politics barring cars and trucks from urban corridors, Inslee, continues his quest to emulate Al Gore lite version 2.0. The dear leader of the Washington government is nationally known for committing the despicable act of putting the expenses of his state patrol security team on the tax payer tab during his pathetic run for the White House. The demagogue managed to garner less than a percentage point of the vote during the early primaries, and cemented his defeat and hypocrisy by flying domestically to locations around the nation in Airbus and Boeing jets. Apparently, Democrats are not expanding to their carbon footprint if the activity involves promoting a biased ideology.
The most blatant oversight in the Governor’s template to restrict constituents and control human behavior, is that in a suitably geographically expansive state such as Washington, the infrastructure does simply not exist as vehicle charging stations are lacking outside of population centers. One of the most infuriating failures of Democratic politicians is the inability to recognize the distinction between urban and rural and this tone deaf response to real life extends from framework, to agriculture, and of course Second Amendment rights. The forgettable trio of Left coast governors collectively suffer from this affliction, however, are endorsed by obtuse voting majorities that political funding figureheads like Michael Bloomberg spend tens of millions of dollars to each during each electing cycle in spreading unrelenting propaganda.
The most disturbing facet of this boorish game of politicized extremist one-upmanship, where elected officials compete to draft legislation that adopts the Richard Simmons “Sweating to the 80’s” into the public school PE curriculum, is that special interests are served, and the average citizen is made obsolete, according to a bill.
Whether it be planes, trains, or automobiles, unless the mode of transportation enhances the position of a specific politician in promoting an agenda, individuals are left to suffer from the incredulities and nebulous proclivities of career politicians. As with the trendy ideological maelstrom of restrictive legislation driven by emotion and motivated by the countercultural movement, and not by logic or reason, the coming fruition of a thermodynamic nightmare is on the horizon, a cruel fate that only a suitable proportion of voters deserve.
