WestMORON's town hall meeting

I went to this sham of an event, this afternoon and came away with one single thought: God, I hope Mike McGraw hasn't lost hope for the next opportunity to run against that jerk!

First of all, as a working taxpayer, I'd like to thank WestMoron for being so sensitive to his taxpaying constituents as to hold the meeting at 5:30. I had to skip my lunch hour so that I could leave my job early in order to attend. At least, I am fortunate to work at a job where that is possible.

Second, he compared the valor of US Marines in Mogadishu to the work of the mercenaries hired by Black Water in Fallujah.

Third, he kept going on about how the democrats "packed $23 billion of pork" into the Iraq war funding bill. Uh, how many billions in surplus money did he and his friends in the 109th Congress whiz away? How many Trillions in debt did they leave this country? (I guess it's only wrong if Jack Abramoff doesn't get a cut of the action.)

Fourth, he said that poor Scooter Libby might go to jail because he couldn't remember some things. Kudos to the gentleman who stood up and corrected Westmoron by reminding him that Scooter (I can't wait to hear what his prison nickname is going to be) isn't going to jail because of his memory problems; he's going to jail because he lied to the FBI -- the same thing that would and should happen to any person who lies to the FBI.

Fifth, he kept claiming that Valerie Plame couldn't have been a covert agent with the CIA if she drove to work at the CIA building every day. WTH??? If the place where I work defines the job that I do then, I'm here to tell you that I am the CEO of Coca Cola.

Sixth, when one gentleman asked about what Westmoron could do to help people who are the victim of identity theft, he said, "We give our Social Security Numbers out too freely." He blamed the victim for being victimized by some company's mishandling of the information they probably required that poor fellah to provide.

But, there is one thing for which I have to give Westmoron credit.

Right before I get my evaluation, my employer requires me to do a self-assessment; after all, it may be that the employee thinks they're doing a fine job. Well, after the stinging wakeup slap the Bush Republicans got last November, Westmoron has decided to engage in public self (sort of) assessment. He recently acknowledged that "the Republican-led Congress failed to pass responsible budgets, failed to control the growth of government and failed to rein in spending." As an employer, I would say that our employee has an accurate (albeit disassociated) picture of his poor performance.

Too bad we didn't fire him when we had a chance.

..is from within the Repub party themselves. I don't think a Democrat has an ice cube's chance of beating even Lynn Westmoreland in that voting area. It is way too Republican and filled with an overwhelming majority that will vote REPUBLICAN even if it is dimwit Westmoreland.

Now, if an ambitious Republican comes along and has the guts to buck the party and challenge Westmoreland, that person has a very good shot at it, despite some alienation of "going against our incumbent, blah, blah, blah." Cynthia McKinney got booted by challengers within her own party, so it can definitely happen.

Westmoreland is an embarrassment to elected office and Republicans. If his IQ is above a Dorito, I'd be shocked. A total moron is being generous. I can hear Repubs saying "at least he always votes the way Bush wants," but I'm thinking maybe even Bush doesn't think that is so good when it comes to Westmoreland.

It will have to be a Republican but I don't want the 3rd District to travel down the same road and vote for just any idiot in the party of the Rs. I'll be glad for any fiscal conservative, party affiliation notwithstanding. And I'm still putting money in my campaign contributions fund. I hope there'll be someone worthy of it because Westmoron's GOT to go!

If you and I are always in agreement, one of us is likely armed and dangerous.

I've got a $1000.00 for a good candidate that will take on Wastemoreland in the next primary. Let's "git r done". I'd even waste a few bucks on Republican dues to see Basmati...I mean Westmoreland removed from office.

Just a thought. Is McDonough still in our district. Maybe we can draft Herman Cain to take Lynn out. I think he lives there.

Both the Rebubs and Dems have NO clue as how to do this.

Of course, there was no mention of lower spending, unless you believe "smaller government" equates to lower spending (when it really means no-bid contracts and sweetheart deals for political friends).

But how about responsible contracting? Why aren't the war contracts being audited the way they should? Why isn't Halliburton being fined for fraud and waste? Good fiscal stewardship is about much more than just lower spending.

If you and I are always in agreement, one of us is likely armed and dangerous.

And I always appreciate it. You remind me of a friend I use to have on the boards. I thought of them my last trip to Amsterdam. Anyone seen U.S.A O-4 Inactive yet?

I was never on any boards but I have given flight coordinates more than a couple of times to comptrollers Eye-wink

By the way, your thumb looks swollen - been in the F-5 (T-5) flying Soviet fighter technique at a Red Flag at Nellis or something? I always loved that excercise. Eye-wink Been there a few times … I also spent long hours a Hurlburt Field making sure you got the right weather forecast – I’m the kind of 'weather' man that jumps at Ft. Benning, fights in Biloxi Miss. and Parris Island, and dives in Pensacola and the Keys, do you know me? You better.

We could have even chatted once or twice if your were in the gulf. I have never told you this before I don't think. I actually thought you might ask me one day.

Your comment about my dedication politically made me want to tell you these things about me. I have a lot of stick-to-it-ness.

I simply disagree with the policy being pushed by the current democratic leadership. I respect other opinions and realize how poorly things have been handled but as we used to say "that's where we want(ed) to be, this is where we are, let's get on with it". I think we have to make lemonaid of of lemoncrap and that's not a good place to be - but in my opinion - it's where we are.

Primos Eos Maj.

So many favors are exchanged to pass legislation that what we end up with is inflated BS every time. Sweet and sour pork. How many people must we vote out to find someone who has a pork allergy? I guess we'll just keep pulling the leverlike a slot machine til we like what we get.
