We are, however, going to stick with Monto Commissioner Joe Gale. Joe is young and the job would be an excellent stepping stone to other positions for advancing the causes of freedom and sanity and ending cronyism.
We are concerned, however, that so many good candidates will split the vote allowing Jeff Bartos, a not-so-good candidate and the establishment choice, to waltz to victory.

Answer to yesterday’s William Lawrence Sr Cryptowit quote puzzle: Despotism is a long crime.
MAGAnificent Speech By President Trump –President Trump has just finished a magnificent speech. Democrats shamefully sat on their hands even when it was pointed out that Black and Hispanic unemployment was the lowest in history and the stock market was setting records.
They even sat on their hands looking sour when the President said In God we Trust.
President Trump made all who loved this country proud. He painted a picture of hope and it was a realistic picture.
He promised massive cuts in prescription drug prices and a bold new infrastructure program.
Some conservatives might give him grief on his immigration plan as he said he would give amnesty and eventual citizenship to 1.8 million illegals brought here as children –if they should exhibit good moral character and stay employed over a 12-year process.
The grief is unwarranted.
President Trump is not wavering on the wall, is going after illegals who commit crime, is ending the lottery system and will stop chain migration.
“. . .when we yield to our own pride and selfishness, we can also distort the way we use our ability to communicate,” Francis said. “This can be seen from the earliest times, in the biblical stories of Cain and Abel and the Tower of Babel . The capacity to twist the truth is symptomatic of our condition, both as individuals and communities.”
Note this was one week after a certain other world leader gave out awards for “fake news”.
Francis defined “fake news” as “the spreading of disinformationon line or in the traditional media.”
“It has to do with false information based on non-existent or distorted data meant to deceive and manipulate the reader,” he said. “Spreading fake news can serve to advance specific goals, influence political decisions, and serve economic interests.”
So how do we defend ourselves?
“The most radical antidote to the virus of falsehood is purification by the truth,” Francis said.
He noted that “The truth is not just bringing to light things that are concealed, “revealing reality”, as the ancient Greek term aletheia (from a-lethès, “not hidden”) might lead us to believe (but) involves our whole life. ”
He said “Truth is something you can lean on, so as not to fall. In this relational sense, the only truly reliable and trustworthy One – the One on whom we can count – is the living God. Hence, Jesus can say: ‘I am the truth’. We discover and rediscover the truth when we experience it within ourselves in the loyalty and trustworthiness of the One who loves us. This alone can liberate us: ‘The truth will set you free'”.
He advocated that all participate in a “journalism of peace”.
“By that, I do not mean the saccharine kind of journalism that refuses to acknowledge the existence of serious problems or smacks of sentimentalism,” he said. “On the contrary, I mean a journalism that is truthful and opposed to falsehoods, rhetorical slogans, and sensational headlines. A journalism created by people for people, one that is at the service of all, especially those – and they are the majority in our world – who have no voice. A journalism less concentrated on breaking news than on exploring the underlying causes of conflicts, in order to promote deeper understanding and contribute to their resolution by setting in place virtuous processes. A journalism committed to pointing out alternatives to the escalation of shouting matches and verbal violence.”
So American journalists, this means when you learned powerful forces in federal law enforcement are conspiring with one candidate to win an election, you report it. And not just report it, report it with appropriate outrage.
This means when rich connected types are forcing those without much disposable income to pay for their lifestyles, you, well “afflict the comfortable” even if you had been led to believe they are part of a “progressive” future.
There was a French poet named Gerard de Nerval. We are sure you have heard of him. He had a pet lobster. He named him Thibault. He would put on a leash and take him for walks through Paris’ public gardens.
