Declare victory and go home

Princess Stephanie once again demonstrates her PR flack background (although odd such a true blue Dem would borrow from Tricky Dick Nixon's handbook) as she spins nothing but positives with her postmortem analysis of the just completed Amherst Town Meeting.

She forgets to mention of course that the Select Board was 0-2 on articles that garnered any press attention: A much needed zoning change, championed by the Select Board and Town Manager (and her husband on the Planning Board and her dad, Chair of the Amherst Redevelopment Authority) but panned by town meeting; and the typical anti-war advisory article the Select board had voted 4-1 for "no recommendation," but was overwhelmingly approved by Town Meeting.

Hooke better get to work drafting her anti-war with North Korea resolution so Amherst Town Meeting, on the other side of the planet, can overwhelmingly support it.

As if anyone gives a ----!

Certainly not the North Koreans.

And it's not like you would find many Korean War Vets among our illustrious Amherst Town Meeting (other than Robert Joy)

The great thing about Amherst is here, truth is what we say it is.

She is, after all, the high priestess of our righteous and holy temple...

I wonder if she is related to D.H. Jones in any way? LOL Slum lords of Amherst!

Why not let the public decide?

Or can't you live by your own rules?

Have a freakin core Larry.

Freedom of speech, remember?

And I hope you saved that posting Larry.

Yeah, strangely enough the Comment completely disappeared without a trace (usually Blogger says something like "Comment removed by author")

Although a tech-idiot, even I have Comments instantly forwarded to my antiquated AOL email address (demonstrating how long I've been doing this, so I should be a bit more tech-savvy).

So yes, I do have a record from his posted Comment of about two hours ago (hence my quick 10:43 AM response invoking McCarthy):

Safer, saner Amherst has left a new comment on your post "Declare victory and go home":


This is a link to the "FBI Tips and Public Leads" website online.

"Please use this website to report suspected terrorism or criminal activity. Your information will be reviewed promptly by an FBI special agent or a professional staff member."

If you suspect ANYONE working for the town, town government, town meeting etc. of supporting ANY fundraising front organization (domestic or international) or organization designated as supporting or engaging in terrorism pursuant to E.O. 13224, E.O. 12947, or the Immigration and Nationality Act should consider utilizing the FBI tips page.


It's quick, it's easy and it benefits everyone.

For a safer, saner Amherst.

Have you ever been hacked, Larry?

LarryK4 said...

Probably not by him, since he did not know how to turn his url addresses into hotlinks within the Comment box.

Wasn't she supposed to leave town with her lover?
