Gov't 101

Two letters to the editor in today's Naples Daily News almost had my chin dropping into my morning Cheerios.

To quote:
Reprehensible, that’s what it is. Why do we allow a handful of individuals functioning under the guise as county commissioners to act on the behalf of 300,000 citizens of Collier County?

The vote by the Collier County commissioners to bring Jackson Laboratory to our county equates to taxation without representation.
Folks, it's called representative government.
That's the way it's supposed to work.
We allow a handful of individuals functioning... for us, a handful of individuals we have hired, to to act on our behalf,

Representative government.

I guess it's only representative when my representatives act EXACTLY how I demand they act.
Otherwise, it's taxation without representation.
Figure it out, folks.
Would you have written the same letter if the decision had been different?
Of course not!

Look it up.
Then shut up.

And so it goes.

Some people have such a low opinion of themselves that they have to invent an 'underclass' from which to feel superior.

Hence the pathetic sign that showed up in my neighborhood over the weekend:

Although some sorry souls found this humorous, personally, I found it disgusting and pathetic. 

And ugly.

If you think so little of yourself that you have to denigrate another human being, just what does that make you?


Just gotta feel superior to someone/something, don't you?

Didn't work, did it?

And so it goes.

Not a happy sight

Unfortunately, the news doesn't seem to be getting better. Too close; too close. At least they're not using the 'H' word yet.

And so it goes

Not yet, please

I think we can do without this.

And so it goes.

Florida's in the middle of campaign season (when isn't it?).

Problem is, I have yet to find a single candidate I want to vote for

I have, however, found a whole shitpotful of candidates I sure want to vote against.

I'm particularly suspicious of extremely wealthy men who seen to want to buy political offices.

In fact, I think perhaps the extreme wealth pretty much disqualifies them.

And so it goes.

Never a chance

Dave Moulton never got it.

The Cubs were never gonna come to Naples.

Never. Never. Never.

All Naples was was a lever to extract more from Mesa.

And it worked.

And Dave, your latest column sounds like sour grapes.

Took lessons from the Cleveland Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert, huh?

Wah. Wah. Wah.

And so it goes.

Cause and effect?

Lets see, more people started playing bills online and using email because of the cost of stamps. So the Post Office started losing money.

To make up the difference, the Post office raised the price of stamps.

So more people started playing bills online and using email because of the cost of stamps.

To make up the difference, the Post Office raised the price of stamps again.

And more people started playing bills online and using email because of the cost of stamps.

So now, the Post Office is raising the price of stamps yet again.

Anyone else notice a trend here?

Think if, just maybe, the Post Office were to REDUCE the price of stamps, more people would go back to using mail?

Or is it too late?

And so it goes.
