or How to Stop Worrying about People Thinking You're a Douche
Author's Statement of Purpose: My goal is to get more people to be interested in the community forum on TV Tacoma. I want folks to be able to recognize people on the street and have compassion for the engine driving them.
I will forge new connections to people orphaned by civilization.
The thin gray line... the front line of defense for all us 'to-busy-for-politics' average citizens. Though not as awesome as a COMMUNITY FORUM event which happens the first Tuesday of every month, we still are treated to the presence of our most opinionated citizens. This is their story...
King Keeper of the Daffodils"... And with my new army of replicants I will forge my will upon the world! eh ho ho ho!"
RR Commentary: Hands down my new favorite commenter of all time
Daffodil Pod Princess Humanoid
"With great effort I have trained my face to smile despite my complete absence of human emotion, and with this power my puppet masters will booster me into a successful career in politics and or television"
Daffodil Pod Princess Swarming Attack!
King continues: "Yes my children take their money! They are powerless without their money! eh ho ho ho!"
Symbolic Gesture 4 Free Healthcare GroupRR Commentary: Woman above relating the story of how her son committed suicide. In all seriousness this is a drag. Kinda kills the mood. One thing this country could use is greater access to Mental Healthcare. For Real yo.
Now lets get back into the swing of things...
Lonely University Place Guy"My wife and I both are from University Place and we both support the Healthcare"
Mike Lonergan = Douche Bag"....hmmm, not that i'm against helping people most in need but frankly after making so many new wingnut friends at the counter-protest rally I cannot affort to be seen making any sort of progressive stance on a symbolic issue(s); therefore I abstain from this vote. Oh yeah and that thing about gay-- um I mean 'domestic partner' benefits for city employees? Yeah, I'm against that. Also.. I've been married for over 100 years...[blah blah]"
Julie Anderson, Champion"Gimmie a fucking break! Why not let the voters feel good about something for a change? I support both domestic partner rights and the healthcare"
Mike Lonergan"huh? [blinking] Anyhow, as I was saying... I think we need to stay in the iraq and finish what we started. That's why I don't think 'domestic partners' should be allowed in the military... which brings me back to marriage--it is like sooooo important and stuff, like people who cant get married are--"
"Look, I'm not trying to be an asshole about this... It's just... lapel pins.. um.. americ--"
Mike Lonergan with his backward conservative faith-based belief structure face melts 'nazi-style' before an immense flame of enlightenment!!!!1!!
You May Already be a WINNER!

|If this helps the civic education project you are undertaking, I can donate this picture to the cause:|
Here, yesterday, the daffodil princesses were nesting at Tullys with a slew of "watchers" chaperoning them. Made quite a contrast with the regulars at Tullys.

CONTACT: Mike Lonergan (253) 759-3252
Following is a statement by Mike Lonergan, independent candidate for Pierce County Executive. It may be freely quoted or excerpted as you wish, or call the number above with further questions.
"The dust has settled from last week's bruising convention battle, which kept me off the Republican ticket by just one vote. I thank the many people who have urged me--for many good reasons--to contest the election process and its outcome. However, after prayerfully considering the situation, I conclude that I am in a far stronger position as an Independent candidate than I was before the convention.
"At least four out of ten Republicans prefer me as their County Executive. This coupled with the support of 7 out of 10 Tacoma voters--including thousands of Democrats--in my last City Council election, spells victory for Mike Lonergan in this November's Ranked Choice Vote.
"Elections for Assessor, Auditor and Sheriff are now non-partisan, demonstrating that Pierce County citizens are ready to vote for the person, and not the party. So, the time is right to take back the leadership of our County government from the professional politicians. Clearly, I offer far more successful experience as a chief executive officer than the other three candidates combined.
"The only question is whether citizens care enough to support a true grassroots campaign against the musical chairs that's gone on for so long in County government, and replace it with leadership that answers to the public. We can have less crime, better roads, and more effective County services, without adding new taxes, IF people want it enough. I believe the voters are asking for "Executive Excellence" and not simply politics as usual. "Political oddsmakers have discounted my candidacy because it is backed by average taxpayers giving small donations and volunteering time, not by big money interests and campaign consultants. Yet, that grassroots movement for change is really the strength that is carrying national campaigns forward in the 21st century, and we'll see the same phenomenon in the next six months here in Pierce County."
