Nasty, costly, ugly – at least it’s over
Well, the nastiest, most costly, disgusting midterm election is over. Each team, Red and Blue, sent us their propped up sycophants telling us how awful and untrustworthy the other team is and how they’re going to fix everything. We all know and understand that whatever is said, and regardless of the outcome, it’s going to cost us, the taxpayer, more money. There ain’t never no (triple negative, I know) free ride after the election is over.
Now, we can get back to our own trashy problems and petty bickering among city staff and city council. It’s tough to be pleased with our system of electing representatives with all the negativity expressed through the campaign and voting process. The amount of money being spent on all of this is mind boggling. The rest is just absolutely disgusting.
– Bill Jaques, Modesto who campaigned on the slogan that he would “Make America Great Again.” It seems to me that greatness ought to include some degree of unity in our country.
I will be darned if I can see where he has done anything to promote even a scintilla of unity among our citizens. Quite the contrary appears to be true as we watch snippets from his rallies out in the red states. All we seem to see is a narcissistic and massive ego bragging and engaging in childish namecalling and racist and senseless attacks on anyone who would dare question or disagree with him.
As I watch his diatribes, I cannot help but wonder aloud, “
Democrats are being viciously scapegoated as standing for “mob rule.” It is especially sad to see the GOP falling in lockstep with this president’s senseless rhetoric. How can we possibly benefit from the kind of divisive behavior we are seeing displayed by this president? – Andrew G. Alkema, Hugh
son I know many Democrats are very good Americans, but she is not one of them. She is not honest always. She has not always been honest with our President. She was wrong to create problems for an honest man and his family, who is an honest judge, to become a Supreme Court Justice, who was chosen by President Trump. I would never trust her. I believe her to be a liar.
– Roger Jacobs, Waterford should, and probably does, bother several people. The mall was advertising that Santa will arrive on Nov 17th. Can we please at least celebrate Thanksgiving before you start bombarding us with this? What message are you sending to our kids (and adults) when you minimize Thanksgiving like this? Why not just have the Jolly old guy arrive on July 1st so that the 4th of July can just be a passing thought as well?
I for one will never be parking my car in the “mall” parking lot again.
