  1. I have to say all of the above!

    Tom needs to concentrate on taking care of his wife Desiree by getting a paying job… rather than worrying about Ocean Shores.

  3. crimsonturd says:

    Yeah…”Awaiting Moderation” Tom…
    does truth hurt?

    B. Because I don’t drink lattes. I don’t care how much they cost! Next thing you know, they’ll be after my box of Triscuits!

    “We need to steward our limited tax revenues more wisely. We can’t keep expecting the taxpayers to bail us out for our mismanagement.” Ooops, my mistake, this is what I want to hear them to say.

    f. How about vote these guys out and make sure the next bunch live up to their campaign promises or subject them to X number of days circling the round about.

    Too bad all of you cannot leave the bad rhetoric alone and truly discuss isues. Tom often stimulates an exchange of viewpoints. That is good. Name calling and dirt throwing does nothing to solve a problem.

    I have never seen a bigger group of felching sycophants than on this panty waste of a blog. Led by head felcher, (your leader, not mine) tom. So entertaining to wait for the daily drool, and then wait for the first felcher to fall in line like you always do and suck up the stench of his existence.

    • Questioning authority says:

      “Sycophants”? Is Tom or anyone here really “praising people in authority in a way that is not sincere, usually in order to get some advantage from them.” I think most are opposed to the “authority” and are not looking “to get some advantage from them.” The people here are trying to show the opposite. The people here are trying to get something for everyone. I think they call that relief from waste, overtaxation, and continuing the blunders that end up costing everyone millions in court. Maybe they want then to focus on the basics. If you can’t do it right, don’t do it at all.

    bc is right. And,yo “frutti”, you are the poster child illustrating the problem.
