'Pave the Bay' $ierra Club Endorses Fi$ette

Hey Yupette,

Bad enough that Jay Fi$ette just voted for a site plan that includes an energy pig building with 885 parking spaces in parking garages under the building. Now he's been endorsed by the 'Pave the Bay' $ierra Club. Those lovable environmentalists who are destroying Chesapeake Bay, McMansion by bayfront McMansion, Marina by bayfront Marina, while telling Arlingtonians (who live 70 miles from the Bay) that we can't spend enough on wastewater and stormwater treatment. Then there's the Columbia Pike $treetcar which would (like the rest of Arlington) be powered by electricity generated by nuclear and combustion, much of the combustion derived from burning 'mountaintop coal'. Face it, the $ierra Club and Fi$ette are nothing but wealthy Republicrat elitists who derive power from destroying the environment, while brainwashing the sheeple into believing otherwise.

Want to be truly appalled? Do a Google search on 'Annapolis waterfront property' and 'Chesapeake Bay waterfront property'.

Chesapeake Bay's environmental future...WHAT future?

Don't forget to include the docks behind the McMansions (not far from the septic system fields and well-fertilized lawns), with boats leaking oil into the Bay and its estuaries.

"Wealthy Republicrat Elitists"? You mean like Cheney and Rumsfeld, who are the Bay's poster children for conspicuous environmental destruction?

Sierra Club Elitists are equal opportunity environmental predators. Mountains, seashore, islands, streams, lakes --- all the same to them as "upscale lifestyle opportunities".

Yes, Arlington is 70 miles from the Bay. Moreover, Arlington is selling water pollution credits to jurisdictions upstream and downstream from us on the Potomac so those jurisdictions can delay upgrading their wastewater treatment plants. Is 'environmental protection' as defined by the Sierra Club an oxymoron? Sure seems that way to me.

We're not Elitists. Non-resident County Staff are installing water-efficient community spray parks for the lazy and shiftless Arlington residents who can't afford vacation homes on the water like the VIP decision makers who run County Government from our homes outside Arlington.

Let me guess who are selling water pollution credits to jurisdictions upstream and downstream of Arlington? The VIP County employees who live upstream and downstream?

Scott McCaffrey can't risk losing his position on the Chamber of Commerce's Board or ad revenue for his biased and opinionated newspaper/newsblog (nicknamed the 'Sun-Fisette') by offending the real estate interests (which spend large amounts for advertising) and corporations and their Sierra Club shills who are destroying the Bay and its estuaries. McCaffrey should be a case study about conflict of interest journalism and nanny journalism in J-school curricula.

The editors of the other major local news bloggers who accept paid advertising, Ja$on $pencer and $cott Brodbeck, are not far behind $ara$ota $cott McCaffrey.

In fact, many VIP county employees who are involved with the environment at work own beachfront homes as described above.

Yes, big secret about the Sierra Club is the Sierra Clubbers live on the shore of the Bay and its estuaries they are allegedly trying to "protect" by lobbying Arlington to treat waste water and storm water to near-drinking water quality.

Way too many important decisions are being made for Arlington residents by people who don't live in Arlington.

What passes for "journalism" in Arlington is basically informercials for the status quo. Scott McCaffrey is so insipid he's beyond being a stereotype and has become a caricature, a throwback to the hacks of a hundred years ago who H.L. Mencken described in his memoirs. As in Baltimore circa 1910, the local political system is rotten with corruption but what interests the local newsies is where the can find the best free food.

Most of the VIPs are going to retire to some ocean (lake, bay, river,) front home in a few years and many will own boats or have friends and family who own boats. So, what can you expect?

Never mind the Sierra Club, Chesapeake Bay Foundation is so anti-environment it's frightening. The Elitists who control CBF are responsible for the "Save the Bay" charade that has, in fact, Paved the Bay. They have a lot more power over Bay development than the Sierra Club. Do you think the thousands of McMansions right on the shore of the Bay could have been constructed without CBF's tacit approval?

CBF only gets concerned about mega-development on the Bay that threatens the quality of life of CBF members who own McMansions on the Bay.

So where do you think all the Smart Growth Elitists spend weekends and vacations? Cooling off at the neighborhood spray park?

CBF is a massive Save the Bay for the Wealthy Elite lobby, with major operations on the Hill and in Richmond, Harrisburg, and Annapolis.

Nothing like spending the weekend on your 9 acre Bay shore estate after a hard week lobbying the likes of Zimmy and Fisette to spend another $500 million treating storm water to drinking water quality.

People who control the lives of Arlington residents spend weeknights in their luxury suburban enclaves, typically in Fairfax County, and weekends and vacations in their second luxury homes, typically right on the Bay.

So this the the Chesapeake Bay Foundation's and Sierra's Club's "plan" for saving the Bay -- jurisdictions on the Potomac massively treat waste water / storm water and Sierra Clubbers and CBF members who live on the Bay have a good old time in their shoreline McMansions?

So where will $ara$ota $cott McCaffrey retire to? Upscale $ara$ota, of course, where his family already lives.

You'll find him at the local all-you-can-eat-for-$4.95 buffet, when he's not using his press credentials to graze for free at some real estate or chamber of commerce event.

Thanks for this blog. The Sierra Club and Chesapeake Bay Foundation are environmental greenwashers and fraudsters, aided and abetted by their media shills.

I want a federal investigation of this entire water quality charade whereby urban areas on the Potomac like Arlington have gold-plated wastewater treatment plants while the wealthy elitists who live in 20-room McMansions on the shore of the Bay get away with a huge septic field under a well-fertilized lawn draining right into the Bay and a 50 foot boat leaking fuel and oil into the Bay besides.

 
At 02 August, 2013 , Anonymous Anonymous said...

It works like this...the wealthy elite who live on the Bay have a waste water quality rating of 0/10. The sheeple who live in Arlington have a waste water quality rating of 10/10. So the average waste water quality rating for both the elitists and sheeple is 5/10.

Stay tuned for spending $568 million more to treat Arlington's storm water to a quality rating of 10/10.

I DON'T want to be charged for stormwater treatment, since I live in a small home on a large lot with a gravel driveway and water that drains from the roof onto the lawn.

Save the Bay? Visit Kent Island which SHOULD be a National Wildlife Refuge but is a suburban sprawl mess and an environmental disaster.

Jay Fisette and other County Board members have taken turns being on regional boards responsible for setting growth and environmental policy. So he's absolutely complicit in the "Save the Bay" charade.
