    A Value Judgment of Citizens?

    How did I get caught up in the Government mess?

    A  value judgment of our government (public servants)

    “When American citizens are afraid of what their government is going to do to them that is unacceptable to me”

    The government was bothering American citizens and as an American citizen, that really bothered me, so I started to bother them.

    A meeting on Jan 26, 2011  STARTED MY BOTHERING WITH “THAT” FEAR .

    It was just the tip of the iceberg.

    ———————————————————————————————

    Ask yourself this question

    Is fear of American government unacceptable for an American citizen?

    If you’re a normal American Citizen, you’d answer, Yes, it is usually unacceptable for an American citizen to be afraid of their government,

    However, the issue of fear of American government  today, is a value judgment of what we want our world to look like?

    ————————————————————–

    Value Judgment by definition  –  2015 (increasing your vocabulary)

    An assessment of a person, situation, or event. The term is often restricted to assessments that reveal the values of the person making the assessment rather than the objective realities of what is being assessed.

    EVER CONCERNED AMERICAN CITIZEN HAS A “START BUTTON”

    There are so many U.S.  government VALUE JUDGMENTS in America?

    Who’s Lives Matter?

    Health Care for American Veterans?

    Obamacare’s  medical treatment for citizens over 75 years old?

    Drugging  American children?

    Climate Change? Drought, flooding and Dam removals

    The 14 year Middle East wars and conflicts?

    EPA WOTUS? Taking and controlling all Waters of the United States?

    Electronic Warfare Games?

    Weather modification?  Unregulated and unrestricted Cloud seeding?

    Restricting Public Use Of Public Land?

    The Federal $15.00 an hour minimum wage?

    Fish before People?

    Being left  High dry and destitute?

    The Burn baby burn response to Wildfires?

    WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO GET YOU STARTED?

    A bit of documented history

    It started here, on  Jan 26, 2011 at the first shoreline management plan meeting (SMP) public participation strategy meeting, a public meeting by invitation only?

    Eight to ten uninvited Lake Sutherland shoreline private property home owners showed up, because they were afraid of what the government was going to do to them with.

    That really bothered me.

    —————————————————-

    Snippet, Question/topic of the ESA facilitators /consultants Jan 26, 2011 public participation strategy meeting.

    *WHAT WOULD INSPIRE YOU TO PARTICIPATE IN CLALLAM COUNTY’S EFFORT TO PROTECT PRIVATE USE OF LAND?

    WHAT WOULD INSPIRE ME?

    In fact, I was so inspired, I went to a Clallam County Commissioners meeting and made a comment.

    “When American citizens are afraid of what their government is going to do to them that is unacceptable to me”

    Documented below.

    That meeting on Jan 26, 2011  got me STARTED WITH “THAT” BOTHERING.

    EVER CONCERNED AMERICAN CITIZEN HAS A “START BUTTON”

    WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO GET YOU STARTED.

    WHY DO I BOTHER? 2011-2015

    “When American citizens are afraid of what their government is going to do to them that is unacceptable

    to me”  Has anything changed? Is it worse now?

    Have  the topics of the fear of American citizens increased?

    THERE ARE 617 WRITTEN SMP PUBLIC COMMENTS POSTED ON THE SMP WEBSITE

    And, somebody? prepared an SMP public oral and written comments  “matrix” On 160+ of the 617+?

    One must ask what is the definition of a matrix?

    “matrix”  by definition, A situation or surrounding substance within which something else originates, develops, or is contained: matrix. Mathematics A rectangular array of numeric or algebraic quantities subject to mathematical operations, something (such as a situation or a set of conditions) in which something else develops or forms. : something shaped like a pattern of lines and spaces.

    “matrix” quantities subject to mathematical operations?

    617 SMP public comments? 160 + SMP written and oral comments to be reviewed?

    “matrix” Such as a situation or a set of conditions?

    Like the 457 SMP written Public Comments left out of the “matrix” mathematical operation? And? Who know’s how many oral comments?

    “SMP matrix” Indeed, something shaped like a PATTERN…..

    I have never been a fan of “New Math” and, I certainly object to this SMP Matrix Mumbo Jumbo,  language or ritual causing or intended to cause confusion or bewilderment).

    Am I? the only one of the 3300 Vested, Private Shoreline property owners  that are bewildered and or confused by this SMP matrix of written and oral public comments?

    Is this NEW SMP matrix, prepared by somebody?  intended  to be ambiguous? biased? unfair? capricious? frivolous?  and confusing?

    I am just one of the affected 3300 Vested, Private Shoreline property owners, that just happened to have submitted 165 written SMP update public comments and lord only knows, how many public oral comments on the SMP Update during the years I have spent, as a concerned citizen from Jan.26, 2011 to March 18, 2015,

    Plus oral and written comments during my volunteer time served,  as an important member of the citizens input committee (as described by and serving under Steve Gray, Planning Manager)

    I’m not a lawyer or an attorney,   I am JUST ONE of the affected 3300 Vested, Private Shoreline property owners, that shall be severely impacted and profoundly affected by the SMP 2014 Update.

    Thank God and the US Constitution for freedom of speech, I am Just asking?

    What was the legislated intent of the WA State Appearance of Fairness Doctrine? Does this apply to the local land use decisions being made on the Clallam County 2014 SMP Update?

    ——————————————————————-

    42.36.010
    Local land use decisions.

    Application of the appearance of fairness doctrine to local land use decisions shall be limited to the quasi-judicial actions of local decision-making bodies as defined in this section. Quasi-judicial actions of local decision-making bodies are those actions of the legislative body, planning commission, hearing examiner, zoning adjuster, board of adjustment, or boards which determine the legal rights, duties, or privileges of specific parties in a hearing or other contested case proceeding. Quasi-judicial actions do not include the legislative actions adopting, amending, or revising comprehensive, community, or neighborhood plans or other land use planning documents or the adoption of area-wide zoning ordinances or the adoption of a zoning amendment that is of area-wide significance.

    42.36.060
    Quasi-judicial proceedings — Ex parte communications prohibited, exceptions.

    During the pendency of any quasi-judicial proceeding, no member of a decision-making body may engage in ex parte communications with opponents or proponents with respect to the proposal which is the subject of the proceeding unless that person:

    (1) Places on the record the substance of any written or oral ex parte communications concerning the decision of action; and

    (2) Provides that a public announcement of the content of the communication and of the parties’ rights to rebut the substance of the communication shall be made at each hearing where action is considered or taken on the subject to which the communication related. This prohibition does not preclude a member of a decision-making body from seeking in a public hearing specific information or data from such parties relative to the decision if both the request and the results are a part of the record. Nor does such prohibition preclude correspondence between a citizen and his or her elected official if any such correspondence is made a part of the record when it pertains to the subject matter of a quasi-judicial proceeding.

    [1984 c 191 § 1; 1982 c 229 § 6.]

    The 2014 Clallam County SMP Update is the is the most restrictive Local land use decisions that has  ever been inflicted on 3300 Clallam County Vested, Private Shoreline property owners.

    ARE YOUR SMP PUBLIC OR ORAL COMMENT INCLUDED IN THE “SMP 160+ MATRIX”?

    ————————————————————————————-

    Just saying…concerned citizens better bone up on the definition of this new DEFINITE catch-all word Clallam County government “MATRIX” concept, it is also being used by the Home Rule Charter Commission.

    DEFINITE  by definition, clearly defined or determined; not vague or general; fixed; precise; exact: a definite quantity; definite directions. 2. having fixed limits; bounded with precision:.
