And when I get ahold of my staff of proofreaders, I'm going to give them the whatfor, you can just coutn on thet.
The mayoral results are in:
WASHINGTON COUNTY, VA - DAMASCUS MAYORFor those not familiar with the issues in the race (cited above), here are/were Damascus's overriding political matters, as reported by the Bristol Herald-Courier earlier:
*Creed Jones 228 votes / 85.39%
Chad Byron 34 votes / 12.73%
Write-In 5 votes / 1.87%
Neither candidate is ideal. Jones raised eyebrows with his off-the-wall pledge to fire the entire town police force if he is re-elected. (For the record, we oppose this concept unless there is proof that officers are neglecting their duty or breaking the law.) His opponents also are making much of his apparent "support" for a liquor-by-the-drink referendum.Jones is the winner. Y'all drink one for him. And for what once was your police force.
Byron, meanwhile, is embroiled in a flap about his use of a town fire truck to fill up his personal swimming pool and a possible debt to the fire department’s bingo hall. (link)

Anything to keep the global warming hoax alive.
For the love of God.
You gotta love the fact that the losers in this country who made all the noise in years past are these days challenged at every turn by those who love their country and aren't willing to remain silent.

Al Gore Calls Myanmar Cyclone a 'Consequence' of Global WarmingI think there is a special place in the burning fires of hell for this heartless bastard.
By Jeff Poor, Business & Media Institute
Using tragedy to advance an agenda has been a strategy for many global warming activists, and it was just a matter of time before someone found a way to tie the recent Myanmar cyclone to global warming.
Former Vice President Al Gore in an interview on NPR’s May 6 “Fresh Air” broadcast did just that. He was interviewed by “Fresh Air” host Terry Gross about the release of his book, “The Assault on Reason,” in paperback.
“And as we’re talking today, Terry, the death count in Myanmar from the cyclone that hit there yesterday has been rising from 15,000 to way on up there to much higher numbers now being speculated,” Gore said. “And last year a catastrophic storm from last fall hit Bangladesh. The year before, the strongest cyclone in more than 50 years hit China – and we’re seeing consequences that scientists have long predicted might be associated with continued global warming.” (link)
