Elections

.

So election season has come to Lakewood like a runaway train with no breaks heading into station.
It's nice to see that democracy has finally reared it's ugly head in this part of the nation as well.
Democracy never comes without a fight.

My take?
I like to see what kind of sound decisions I could expect from people I'm voting for.
And the fact that anyone would want to enter politics is beyond my comprehension, thereby showing their inability to make sound decisions.
So...I'm beginning to think anarchy is the answer.

i don't think hh entered politics on purpose; he seems to be one of those rare cases where he felt it was incumbent upon him to do right for his town.. er..city...

and as an obama supporter, as i remember, isn't change what you want?

and anarchy? nah...

I'm all for change. Change that comes from the bottom up. The will of the people.

Obama was smart he made a beeline straight for the Presidency.

Yea..I always liked the way I look in a black face kerchief..

i personally favor the romance of the old fashioned monarchy, of the 'off with their heads,' 'let them eat fruit and cake' variety. it's soo 2011?

cool - at the next anarchist/libertarian/capitalist rally, you should totally snap a pic.

Well you know..I usually abhor politics and almost never write about it..but I think it's vital that people go out and vote in this election.

I might abhor politics but I abhor thugish behavior and intimidation even more.


And I think the chilul hashem is in the hush hush/cover up mind frame that we see. Do you think people don't know what's going on?

A community is not judged on it's mis-doings. It's judged on the way it reacts to them.

lakewood politics is starting to look like jerusalem politics. wouldn't be so shocking to me to hear about fiery dumpsters blocking traffic on fourth street. love your writings btw - makes me wonder how i never knew that there were true creative beings hiding among the masses:)

chav...

You're better off...trust me.

colloqui....

It might be cathartic to resort to burning dumpsters..instead of all this passive aggressive, hiding in anonymity strife.
Thank you very much.
I'm not sure having a blog qualifies as "hiding among the masses.."
But it's nice to know that there are others hiding as well
