It is here: Political hit pieces arrive in my mailbox daily. Ugly, ugly, ugly.
For example: There is one incumbent school board member who pissed off the rich and powerful by not supporting their looting the public treasury for the creation of taxpayer-funded snob academies (“charter schools”), instead supporting using the money to benefit the less well to do. So of course, their hit pieces are arriving in my mailbox daily. Thing is, there’s some small truth to their hit pieces — she’s an arrogant jerk when dealing with idiots and has voted for a few things that seemed a good idea at the time but didn’t work out — but still, the total tool they’re running against her is just that, a tool, a looter, a complete and total know-it-all who thinks surviving sixteen years of being a student makes him qualified to lead the school district despite having never had any experience as a teacher or administrator.
Which is the problem for most of the positions we’re looking at. For example, how many of the people running for the water board have ever drilled a well or sweated a pipe? How many of them have hydrology or civil engineering degrees? Yet we have these… MORONS… who think that they’re qualified to tell a certified engineer how to do his job of maintaining the infrastructure? It is to laugh. The only thing these idiots are good at doing is taking bribes err junkets to “sales seminars” that never seem to be held in Detroit in mid-January for some reason .
I suppose the purpose of all these hit pieces is to convince me to vote for the other guy. But I’m contrarian so I’m going to do the opposite. If someone has pissed off enough rich and powerful people for the rich and powerful to fund glossy hit pieces against them… well. Fuck the rich. Just sayin’.
