Anthony Jordan Post

Hello Everyone,
I apologize for my absence, but I've started at a new job and am trying to find the time to post.

Anthony Jordan, who is running for County Council in District 2, made a recent post that is a must-read for anyone who is tired of seeing scores of incumbents run into retirement as the problems they originally ran on continue to give them campaign fodder without being solved.

Thank you for all of your continued support and readership. It is the only thing that keeps me posting some days. Even if you have nothing more to say that "Liked it" or "Disagree Completely", a simply post is great for telling not only me, but also all the other readers, who is reading.


  1. New mantra for this election year: VOTE LIKE IT'S APRIL 15.

    -Paid by the Anyone But An Incumbent for office committee, Treasurer, HoCoRising.

  2. Did anyone hear those angry virginian's in the town hall meeting last night? woo. Glad I wasn't there.

    But where was all that anger when we bailed out the banks and insurance companies last year? I want some reassurance that republicans are angry about that as well, some assurance that it's not just a D president that sticks in their craw.

  3. Anonymous,
    It would be intellectually dishonest to tell you that "Republicans" are angry about those bailouts. I can tell you that I was angry with the "throw money at it" approach, but many of the protesters you'll see are motivated by the team they think they are on.

  4. It strikes me as very odd.

    Last year we bail out drunken gluttons who use our wages to go on spa junkets while we are still working away paying taxes to support the arrogance of those abusing power. We protested, in fact, The US Congress' website crashed at the number of people contacting them to protest.

    But then, when we attempt to actually do something with taxpayer money to benefit those same taxpayers -- healthcare coverage -- That is when people get angry enough to change schedules and come out in person to voice opposition.

    Very odd indeed.
