Honest and Refreshing

From the Wall Street Journal:

Gov Christie calls S-L columnist thin-skinned for inquiring about his 'confrontational tone'


How do we get a bunch of guys like this around here?

  1. You did once have a guy like that. Greg Harris went after bloated union contracts like no one else, and you bashed him non-stop. He called the union bosses big fat spoiled brats. I got his newsletter, and he called out waste better than you guys.

  2. The same Greg Harris that wanted to create a whole new class of Union workers with unsustainable pensions with the streetcar? The Greg Harris who pushed unashamedly to spend millions of dollars that we don't have for fancy new recycling bins?

    Ever notice how Greg Harris lashed out against the police and fire unions (who had opposed him in his election), and never said a peep about the garbage union people, etc.?

    I guess Greg Harris is against bloated Union contracts, unless he;s for them, which is why he is out on his ass, thankfully.

  3. The garbage union people who vilified him for supporting the water district? Get your facts straight, retard.

  6. So let me get this straight. Harris is both a "union buster" and a union hack. Hmmm.

    I'm not a liberal. I'm a (true) conservative who was won over by Harris because he supported pension reform and openly took on waste in the very powerful public unions--incl the FOP and fire fighters union that COAST is too pussy to challenge. 90% of the time, our fire engines are repsonding to medical calls, not fires. No "conservatives" are willing to call out this collosal waste.

  7. Hey Jason Gloyd, I guess only people who challenge your views are offensive? You of course said nothing of the dittohead who said of Harris: "which is why he is out on his ass."

  8. Everyone has an ass. There's nothing offensive about that. He did not call Harris an ass.

    Calling someone a "pussy" or a "retard" is much different. That's personal name calling and attacking. If you can't see the difference then you're hopeless.

    Notice how I did not call you a "retard" in my retort.

  9. The word "retard" is offensive to many people when used in that context. Saying someone is tossed outon their ass isn't calling someone a name and being bigoted.

  10. Boy you guys are hypocrites. I just clicked your Harris tab, which goes to this:

    In one post, you label him "stupid" and a "fool." Should I pull up other examples from your site where you insult Harris and other public officials? Bunch of hypocrites.

    Anonymous - I would use the term stupid in front of someone with a developmentally handicapped child. I would use the word "fool" in front of my grandmother.

    Would you call someone a "retard" in front of the parent of a developmentally handicapped child? Would you call someone a "pussy" in front of your grandmother?

    Hypocrite.

  12. Dear "You're just not smart":

    I apologize. You aren't a retard. You are a stupid fool.

  13. You're still not smartMay 20, 2010 at 10:45 AM

    Thanks for not replying to the actual content of my post, which you can't refute. You instead resorted to more name calling, which only serves to show the weakness of your argument.

    Hypocrite.

    Don't you all get it? It's my racist and homophobic remarks that we should focus on.

  15. Jason, have you found a new place to live, or are you out on the street?

  17. Anon 8:18 thank you so much for your concern for my well being. Yes, I do have food and shelter.

  18. Have you started to pay your bills Jason? Is CitiMortgage coming after you for the $40.000+ shortfall in the price that your house brought at auction vs what you owed on your mortgage? How about Mark Miller-Mark are you able to avail yourself of banking services now that Xavier has placed multiple liens on your banking accounts??

    Will they be putting double-wide seats in the streetcar for those of us who are a little big-boned? I would really love to take the trolley to Findlay Market so I can stuff my face with locally made sausages and dairy products. Do they sell stretchy pants somewhere along the route too?
