I have nothing to say. However, I was accused of becoming a blog I distained so I think I will just go for it, rather than be hung as a wolf. I just won’t make fun of people, tempting though it is.
I decided I was not going to subject myself to that kind of scrutiny over voting. I am an American. I had been warned by a couple Republican friends who were in the know that I would probably not be allowed to vote. I had voted in the 2013 Democratic primary for Lt. Governor. I had also voted in a Republican one but who’s counting.
I had plans to vote but after last week’s mailers, I decided that it really wasn’t worth my time. I really want Michele McQuigg out of there. More on that next week. I had planned on supporting Corey. I was pretending he wasn’t running his mouth about immigration. Then came the pro-life letter.
That letter hit the mailbox on Thursday. It was a deal breaker. I don’t usually get involved in reproductive issues at the supervisor level. There is plenty of that to go around at the state level. Other than zoning issues, it really isn’t all that important if a supervisor is pro-choice and to date, that has only come up over some silly letter once with the BOCS.
So why did Corey have to beat us over the head with his pro life stance? I have no idea but he needs to know that he should avoid that subject during local elections. He lost 4 votes from the Howler household. It just wasn’t necessary. I am proudly pro-choice. I don’t need the government to make deeply personal decisions for me or any other women in my family. My friends are intelligent also and can think for themselves, especially about morally appropriate decisions for themselves. We need no help from Big Brother.
I am tired of people trying to wear their “Republican cred.” Most of the time it is ill-fitting and just makes them look stupid. Are power lines and water lines Democratic or Republican? Are schools Democrats or Republicans? Are zoning laws liberal or conservative? How about stop signs and paved roads?
Other than Marty, I hope every last one of them loses. Bill Card needs to resign for being such a nincompoop. Corey needs to think about how to reach out to everyone if he wants to remain chairman. McQuigg needs to crawl back under her homophobic rock and make a list of all legal celebrants based on all who apply rather than those who pass her litmus test. Austin needs to come up with better lines to use. Oh, and one last thing while I am still on my soap box. Pete needs to tell his friend to watch the developer pockets remarks at other people. Pete’s biggest donor category comes from real estate and development. Don’t let your hypocrisy be so easy to trace.
What are the election results? Who all got screwed?
