Ocean Front Property

“Eliminating PAC money should make legislators more loyal to their constituents and less so to special interests”.

Well if you believe that than I have a nice bridge I can sell you for a really good price.

It’s a beauty man!

Practically Brand New and its sports four huge frogs sitting on gigantic spools of thread.

You can set up your toll booth and it will pay for itself in just a few years and the rest will be all profit.

Here is a pic

– And sport let me dedicate this song to your unbridled idealism!

If you leave me, I won’t miss you,
And I won’t ever take you back.
Girl, your memory won’t ever haunt me
‘Cause I don’t love you, and …. now if you’ll buy that.

I got some ocean front property in Arizona.
From my front porch you can see the sea.
I got some ocean front property in Arizona.
If you’ll buy that, I’ll throw the golden gate in free.

I don’t worship the ground you walk on.
I never have and that’s a fact.
I won’t follow or try to find you
‘Cause I don’t love you, … and now if you’ll buy that. …

I got some ocean front property in Arizona.
From my front porch you can see the sea.
I got some ocean front property in Arizona.
If you’ll buy that, I’ll throw the golden gate in free.

Yeah, if you’ll buy that I’ll throw the golden gate in free!

Yaaaa Hoo !!

It pains me to have to follow you over here (with your Ann Coulter links and all), but I must protect the reputation of my anonymous pseudonym.

In the quote you pulled from my post at CTLP, notice the use of the word should. My statement hardly qualifies as "unbridled enthusiasm." Had I used will instead of should, maybe you'd have a point. But under the circumstances I really don't feel my words are quite worthy of being featured among the brilliant content on this blog - a dancing cat, some bad country music, and promotion of your race for Selectman; by the way you forgot to mention that you lost (though sincerely, I admire you for trying.)

Back to PACs, it will take a few years for us to evaluate whether public financing truly reduces their influence on legislatures as the theory goes. I certainly don't see how taking PAC money out of campaigns would have a negative impact on the electoral process. However, liberal as I may be, I'm also a realist. The special interest groups are not going to pack their bags and close up shop. They'll just find other ways to push their causes.

Lastly, I enjoyed reading your Blogger profile. Have you read any books with a plot other than "the left sucks?" Even I take an occasional break from my vast collection of Al Franken to enjoy a fresh perspective on the world. You might want to check out some of the classics, like Plato's Republic. I think you'd enjoy it.

Bad Country Music?! WTF ??!!

George Straight is the King man!

This song is almost as good as "All my ex's live in Texas".

Well OK. Now you are back peddling. Hey there is nothing wrong with being an idealist.

Yep. I sure did lose and if you knew by how much than that really would make your day but instead of conceding defeat I am extending my campaign two years.

-- And can your cat dance like that?

Money will always be in politics just as water will always run down hill. Money belongs in politics. What I don't like are people like the punks that are in office now re-writing the rules, fooling the press and the public into thinking they opened up the process when in fact all they did is click the door locked.

I spoke with my Republican Town Chair last week and he tells me if I wanted to run for state senate and take advantage of the *free* money I would have to get 100 people to give me 150 dollars (and not a penny more) each for me to qualify.

That is well out of my reach. I might be able to raise 15 thou but not if you limit my contributors to a piss-ant 150 each. That’s like giving a drowning man a cement block as a floatation device. It has the reverse affect.

At this point why not just crown the incumbents and get it over with?

-- rather than going through the farce of an election? The incumbent might as well kidnap me and lock me in his basement until the election is over because if I have no money than I have no chance and I might as well not even try. Which is what they want.

I can’t wait to find out what happens if I pass on the *free* money. How will I be punished and my incumbent opponent be rewarded?

The most horrible thing about all this is there is no way to put the genie back in the bottle.

I will never forgive Nanny Rell for creating this unconstitutional mess just so she could look like a reformer and make everyone forget she was a Rowland crony.

Pacs? I don’t see anything wrong with pacs. People with similar concerns or views get together to petition their government for grievances ( I think that’s in the Constitution or something).

I have tried to read Left wing stuff for perspective but you know I don’t enjoy it and besides I get *perspective* all over the place. Every newspaper and every magazine and every news channel except for one has a liberal perspective. Over and over again I read illegal aliens referred to as “undocumented workers” and terrorists are called the more politically correct “insurgents”.

We conservatives drown in perspective – other peoples perspective and not our own. We like to read our “The Left Sucks” books because it’s like finding an intellectual sanctuary.

I liked Michelle Jacklin of the Hartford Courant. I am sorry she got herself fired. I really enjoy hearing James Warren formerly of Capital Gang. Absolutely Brillent guy. You made me think of him and I tried to look him up but could not find his columns so I gave up. That’s about it.

Plato's Republic? Is that a new reality show?

1. The only thing I hate more than cats are viral videos of cats doing silly things.

2. I'm not suggesting you start reading lefty books for perspective on politics. I was thinking about some good novels to gain perspective on life.

3. Regardless of ideology, I always have a soft spot for the underdog. I'm happy that you lost, but no more happy if it was a large margin vs. 1 vote. Though, if you did lose by a large margin, perhaps your views are not as popular as you might like.

4. You need to raise $15k from at least 300 people. Start now. You'll be surprised how easy it is if you're willing to work at it. Then, you have at least 300 people with skin in the game to support you, rather than say 15 people who can write a $1,000 check without blinking.

5. I won't troll your site anymore. See you back at CTLP.

3 Because I lost people in this town will pay more in taxes and how can that be a good thing?

4. Nah. Instead I think I will read my books and think about moving to another state.

5 Troll? You make it sound so dirty. Well then I guess you are not reading this then.

I am going to bed.

Good Nite :)
