That's it!!! Maybe the Governor should buy some bee... no wait, Sam Adams' free beer day. That would help unhappy voters change their minds and leave all of that buyer's remorse behind in a jiffy!
Don't be mad I will just be stifling a few readers ability to get a Merc and YOUR voice heard.
Que deadbeats and Perlman lovers telling me this is a crime.
Matt, you take this recall anymore seriously and they will have to double your Prozac dose. I am beginning to think you have a real stake in this...,
Hugs to Lee. Keep on keeping on.
That perfectly encapsulates the quality of logic and ethics at the Merc and Blogtown.
What you guys can't seem to realize is that even if you think Adams doesn't deserve to be recalled, he's not some hero that deserves your adoration either. He's a rather mediocre, ineffectual (and embarrassing) bureaucrat at best.
There is no crime more serious than trying to silence your fellow citizens. Can't you see that this was an act of sabotage against their freedom of speech?
Stop supporting your agenda and start supporting the constitution!
It is part of our democratic process. This person deserves to be in jail for trying to silence the voices of those he disagrees with.
I personally am against the recall but your attitude Matt Davis is appalling and discredits an already shameless joke of a rag.
Patrick Allan Coleman, your food writing is the only part of the Merc that isn't a joke in poor taste. Please find a job somewhere respectable so I can continue to read your work.
Because any paper that glorifies someone shitting on the rights of their fellow citizens through the initiative process is not one I will be reading, or for that matter as a business owner, spending my advertising dollars in.
Mr. Davis, you need to spend some time rethinking your ethics as a journalist.
Surely there must be some buried in there.
1 - This isn't a legal document until the City Auditor gives their stamp of approval.
2 - They have, what are they called? Oh right, COPIES of the petition. Lots of them. Hundreds.
3 - Finally, I could scribble "Ur a big p00-poo head" over all the names... Guess what? They're still valid signatures!!!
Hey PDX PD. Could you do me a favor and actually respond to the REAL tagging in the Hollywood District? You know, the ones on the shiny new and historical buildings? Thanks.
Also, I'm with Allison, go fix the trashed garden.
PS - I'm calling for the purging of John Hancock in all our history books. Greedy SOB! See him use up all that space back in the day?! Ass!
Hancock didn't deliberately deface all the other's signatures.. he just wrote his own very large. Completely different.
Never happen my friend, YOU'RE qualified. Oh, an Lee P reports for the Mid-county Memo, The Southeast Examiner, The Multnomah Village Post and sundry other local rags.
