I’m flattered

I had to laugh that newly elected councilor stole my cartoon idea in this article;

“My joke is: a doctor, a lawyer and a preacher walked into a bar …” Barranco said of himself and his fellow incoming council members.

He also said this;

He also sees the commanding re-election of TenHaken – and the election of all candidates he endorsed – as a sign that residents are happy with how things are going and that “the city’s on track.”

Yes David, a very small percentage that bothered to vote in North Harrisburg are just tickled Taupe.

The destruction of the American middle class has resulted in the loss of our idealism as a nation to participate in our democracy, thus resulting in a ruling class of upper middle incomers and the affluent, who not only influence our elections, but truly are the only ones who have the idealism to vote, participate, and care, which results in the election of a elitist class of Americans, who claim victory for all, when the victory is really just theirs disguised as one for all of us.

The advent of social media has created the image of substance over true substance. It has created a wish to be what you are not, and in hopes that you, too, are a winner because those you admire most are. It is this fleeting hope of winning that makes those who still participate in our democracy from the lesser classes to think that they are winning and truly represented, but truly they are not.

( and Woodstock adds: “Yep, 73% of the people voted for a Bunker Ramp, mask vacillation, no sirens, no voting boxes, no housing, and lesser paying jobs”…. “Because actually that’s what they voted for” ….. “Just saying”…. (…”Oh, and I guess not having a Chief of Culture wasn’t chief on their list, either….” …. )) #Chick-fil-ADriveThru #ComfyChairsAtTheStateTheatre

Maybe you ?s should put up a decent candidate (or run yourselves…you seem to have ALL the answers) and get more of your “lesser classes” to vote them in? Just imagine a utopia like Chitcago, Detroit, Seattle, LA, San Francisco! Gangs, drugs, violence, homeless encampments, it will be great i tells ya!
