Why We Blog

News Blackout on Secretary of State Daniels Capitol Dome Misdeeds Perfect Example of Why We Must Blog On.



The establishment media has reported on many, but by no means all, of the election problems that we have had under the Charlie Daniels administration. They could hardly do otherwise. When there is an election, and they are in charge of reporting the results, and no results are forthcoming, they are highly motivated to point out to the public that it is not their fault. Rather, it is the result of the poor decision making and work performance of the Secretary of State.

On the other hand, the Capitol Dome project has received no such scrutiny. Just the opposite, every media report I have read simply raves on about how the Capitol Dome looks great. They don't report that the contract to spruce up the dome was given out on a no-bid basis to a relative of Charlie Daniel's assistant Peggy Gram. Nor do they mention that the project was a half-million dollars over budget. For crying out loud, can someone tell me how you can go over budget when you don't even have to submit a bid?

This was the one thing I was ready to give Mr. Daniels credit for, because I was ignorant on the subject. That is to say, my only information source on it until recently was the establishment media- which unfortunately has become just another way to say I was ignorant on the subject. That's why we blog.

Hmmm, no bid contract given out to friends of the awarder, it sounds familiar but I just can't place where I have heard of similar dealings.

If you mean Haliburton and Cheney I see your point. But now tell me, are you going to vote for Charlie Daniels seeing as how he does the same thing?

Idiot. And no, Bush didn't do that. Of course, you'd actually have to accept facts to believe this. The truth is, Charlie Daniels has not done his job as SOS for years and doesn't need to be in office. He has been involved in so many underhanded dealings it's pathetic!

Well, I have been called many things up to and including douche bag but idiot is not among them. I don't know if you have ever actually studied Arkansas state politics, but even a novice would know that in a race that is, even by Republican polls, a double digit race, there is no chance that an incumbent (D) is not going to win regardless of the underhanded dealings. I am no friend of Charlie Daniels but I suspect that after a few years, Lagrone would be no better. It is a shame that the voting age population of this state is so apathetic because if it weren't we wouldn't have to decide between two morons for any of these races.

#1) everyone cut out the name-calling and elevate your language.

#2) Rob, are you saying that you ARE going to vote for Daniels, knowing how he is, because you SUSPECT in a few years that LaGrone will PROBABLY be the same way? Am I hearing you right?

What I am saying is that in the past I have always voted for the person that I felt was best for the postition, no matter what party they belonged to. In the last few years, it has become crystal clear to me that I should never vote for a Republican ever again, as even the low level ones are just enablers and rubber stamp holders for the Idiot in Chief.

I think anyone that carries water for these worthless individuals in the White House should be publicly executed, so how would I ever vote for them? Loyalty is not a virtue when the loyalty is directed toward a traitor.

SO WILL YOU VOTE FOR DANIELS? I am not asking you to vote for LaGrone, just leave the space on the ballot blank, since you regard them both as corrupt men. Are you willing to do that Rob, or are you going to drink the Democrats' Kool-Aid no matter what the flavor?
