  • speaking of politics, --- were we speaking about politics?

    I filed the necessary paper work and finiancial statements to run for the office of city council member. My pac is a little short right now, but after next weeks fund raiser I should have proper funds to mount my campaign. I'm running on the Kinky Freedman platform -- Why the hell not? 

     

    anyone else here actually involved in politics?

    This being a political forum, I would assume people would speak of politics, at least occasionally. Other than voting every now and again, I'm not directly involved in politics. I'm afraid that if I won, I might have to actually do something. Unless I got elected Congress as a Republican. In that case, all I'd have to do is throw tantrums.

      Local politics is a lot less exciting than debating gun contol and gay marriages. More like dealing with deciding on which side of the road to put a street sign, or deciding on whether to put a garbage can near the swing set at the local park.

      You'd be amazed at how many people love to hear themselves talk while discussing the problem of high school students loitering at bus stops while on their way to school.

    Yes, I'm a committeeman in Philly. Have been since 2000. No pay involved, more like a dreaded community organizer.

      I applaud you for putting your money where your mouth is and trying to affect positive change through the correct avenues, instead of just bitching about it, unlike most of the idiots here.

       

      I worked on a local campaign a while ago for a friend who was running. It was an interesting experience to say the least.

      Never argue with an idiot, they will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.

        That's very cool, Mr. Moogerfooger!

        Best of luck with your campaign.
