    EVERY vote counts and for those that don’t vote; you have no right to complain about a situation if it doesn’t turn out your way.

    Good Luck, Mayor Elect.

    Damn, why does JR come on a Republican blog? He is such a demoncratic hack. At least Bob English makes reasoned arguments an argues his point articulately. JR is such a whiner!

    As Dennis Hopper once said in “Speed,”

    “A bomb is made to explode. That’s its meaning. Its purpose. Your life is empty because you spend it trying to stop the bomb from becoming. ”

    To that end, a “hater’s gotta hate”

    That said though, thoughtful and respectful comments from both sides of the aisle should be welcome here. But those thoughts should also have a basis in fact and reality.

    It’s just that some people don’t have boundaries.
