I’ve thought and pondered if it would be worth my precious time to respond to some things in the Sanford Herald this morning. Should I? More than likely, we’ll read something else on Billy’s blog or in the paper about our comments. It probably won’t be flattering.
But then I was reminded of the “radical” inside of me and said, “Heck Yeah!” I see the munchkin blogger is tooting the article with all its might. While in many many other articles he claims the Herald is just a mouthpiece for Linda Shook and the GOP Termites! Classic example of doublespeak.
So, to the Sanford Herald and mad blogger- the endorsement of Jimmy Love was expected. After all, how many times did we hear about the “satellite” mess? Barely heard a word about how Jimmy voted. Mad blogger must be happy today!
However, both of you stating or semi-stating that Jimmy Love has nothing to do with the corruption going on in Raleigh is ludicrous! It’s what I call a half truth. Sure, maybe Jimmy, oops sorry, Jim, hasn’t chartered any flights from the “Raleigh Jetport” or bought any coastal property at half the price it’s truly worth like the previous governor did, but he sure has quite a few of “Ayes” beside legislation on the NC General Assembly website that caused my taxes to be raised among other things. And I question them.
The article says, “Jimmy Love Sr. can’t be blamed for the concentration of power in Raleigh, power which has proven to corrupt and guide so many legislators to favor self-interest over altruistic service.” Read more: Sanford Herald – Our View Love for District 51 N C House
If I read this opinion piece correctly, Jim’s eyes and ears must have been shut the entire 14 years he spent on Jones Street. Is that correct? If he saw the corruption, I would think his oath he took to become a lawyer would mean something and he wouldn’t sit idly by turning his head. Wouldn’t you?
And he COULD have said NO to the racial justice act. But he didn’t. So are we back in the Clinton era where it depends on what the meaning of “is” is? No means NO. Jim could have said, “NO, I will not vote for releasing criminals back on the street just because someone MIGHT have said some slur against them.” But he chose not to. A criminal is a criminal, no matter what color his/her skin happens to be.
So please, you could have saved your breath, ink, paper and blog space trying to convince me he should stay there. I just don’t believe it nor will many others who have sat idly by voting for him election after election.
Let me use an analogy that’s easier to understand: You’d like the lunatics that are in charge now to stay in charge! Then you get what you deserve if Jim and others like him go back – massive government, hands in the candy jars representatives, teapot museums, corruption and all kinds of debt that your children and mine will never pay off.
Munchkin blogger – Let me give you a real quote you can refer back to. It explains your ideology. It’s from one of the most famous intellectuals of all time, Albert Einstein: “Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
Jimmy won’t fix the issue. He’s had 14 years and hasn’t done a thing. Why should I trust him now? Another true example of what is good for the goose isn’t good for the gander…that is if you’re a Democrat.
One more thing, this patriot doesn’t need a paper’s endorsement nor a sheriff’s nor a wizard’s to tell me who to vote for. I am perfectly capable of figuring that one out myself. It’s a crying shame if anyone does.
But if we did, we’d find out Charlie is too old, Amy is too quiet, Butch – even the paper couldn’t explain this one, Jim is so-so best choice, Womble wombles, Linda is a loud mouth and entertaining so let’s keep her. I can hardly wait to see which one of these two makes the cut: Renee or Bob.
