    Oh ho! Take those rose colored glasses off people! Now that the mid terms are over, don’t be too sure about a respite from crass reactionary disinformation political ads yet, dear voters.

    Nov. 2016 is right around the corner (for the nice folks that flood us with political ads). Doesn’t that give you that fresh feeling like a summer’s eve?

    In the mean time, now that the party of Mammon controls the Senate, let’s see if we can get something (anything?!) done?
    Short of starting another war for Wall Street or declaring open hunting season on minority drivers by police officers.

    You are SO letting me down, “boat rocker.” I was hoping for some anti-Molton sentiment. Try again.

    On a more immediate and mundane level, it sure would be nice if the local candidates, be they winners or losers, removed the political signs still up all over the place. When I awakened on Nov. 4 and went to vote early that morning, I counted 27 placards from one candidate (who has now lost twice for the same office) on one side of my road in a three-mile stretch that had been put up between midnight and 8:00am. They were clustered together in groups with about 10 feet between each sign.. Other candidates had signs here and there, but this one candidate saturated the roadsides.

    I know this happens everywhere, but it would reflect well on candidates if they’d clean up their mess.

    I guess someone read the post about signs and took action; they were all there when I came in last night around 9:00, but when I left the house about an hour after my post, they had disappeared. The power of the post (or just lucky coincidence). In any event, thanks for removing them. It looks much nicer now.
