And when you tout Ogden City's revival, don't forget to thank Heidi Harwood and Bill Parker, who had the guts to add the first couple of classy gems (City Club and Brewskis)  to Ogden's then floundering 25th street

Oh, yeah!

You can do one of two things in this race wethinks, District 9 voters:
  • Vote this idiotic moron, i.e. Jeremy Peterson OUT!
  • Pick a Mature Candidate, i.e, Kathie Darby;
C'mon, people.  Tell your local Republican Party to "Stick it" Sheesh.

WaPo: This Is How Fascism Comes to America

Don't be a dumbass. Fight fascism in its many creepy forms!

Via the Washington Post (the smarter nemesis of the Grey Lady):

Check out the lede
Republican politicians marvel at how [Trump] has “tapped into” a hitherto unknown swath of the voting public. But what he has tapped into is what the founders most feared when they established the democratic republic: the popular passions unleashed, the “mobocracy.” Conservatives have been warning for decades about government suffocating liberty. But here is the other threat to liberty that Alexis de Tocqueville and the ancient philosophers warned about: that the people in a democracy, excited, angry and unconstrained, might run roughshod over even the institutions created to preserve their freedoms. As Alexander Hamilton watched the French Revolution unfold, he feared in America what he saw play out in France — that the unleashing of popular passions would lead not to greater democracy but to the arrival of a tyrant, riding to power on the shoulders of the people.
Read the whole dang deal!

    Dallas Morning News Declines to Endorse GOP Nominee for First Time Since 1964

    "Donald Trump is not qualified to serve as president and does not deserve your vote," opines the "reddest" editorial board in possibly the reddest state in America

    Via NBC News:
    The editorial page of the Dallas Morning News is declining to back the Republican presidential nominee for the first time since 1964.
    In a scathing editorial, the paper wrote that Donald Trump is "at odds with nearly every GOP ideal this newspaper holds dear. "
    "We have no interest in a Republican nominee for whom all principles are negotiable, nor in a Republican Party that is willing to trade away principle for pursuit of electoral victory," the paper wrote. "Trump doesn't reflect Republican ideals of the past; we are certain he shouldn't reflect the GOP of the future. Donald Trump is not qualified to serve as president and does not deserve your vote."
    The missive comes as a new poll from the Washington Post shows a dead heat among voters in Texas, a traditionally red state.
    Read up, Peeps!
    "Donald Trump is not qualified to serve as president and does not deserve your vote," opines the "reddest" editorial board in possibly the reddest state in America.
