Well good luck with Hood because sometimes, when we are together, he is the "smartest guy in the room" ... depending on the subject of course, then he defers to me, the other "smartest guy in the room."

And in all seriousness, I really wish it was not that way, and I am working diligently for that reality to end. In fact, I am NOW working with some other "smartest guys in the room" to achieve that end.

We're good Stan. I'm always willing to help the smartest guy in the room.

Big Bob you are an easy target here for you are far too often out of your depth, yet, you continue to flail forward, splashing, grabbing for anything the semblance of solid, just like every lost Liberal that can't understand the ever evolving word problem of living.

Thanks for being our constant Token Leaning Left. Lord knows, there are far too few of you here wandering aimlessly in these parts.

The leading edge of honesty..yeah, and I'm John Cougar Mellencamp.

No ...

I know who I am to my core, and so do my constituents.

I don't know if you got the memo yet Big Bob, but dishonest people are not as much in demand anymore ... It may remain different in your circle, but in the real world, dishonesty is finally meeting its due end.

My real situation here is that I just have always been on the leading edge of that whole honesty thing ... "(Insert eye roll)."

Could you be less self-aware?
( February 4th, 2023 @ 10:00 am )
Yep, I am "that guy (Insert eye roll)."

To which, I don't tolerate liars, or hypocrites, and I sure don't tolerate a RINO, which is all of the above.

Yeah, I have paid those kind of dues to deserve to be "that guy."

It doesn't chafe Stan. It just makes you 'that guy'. (Insert eye roll)

I have long been referring to what many refer to as Democrats, and now to a lesser extent Democratics, as what they have become more than a decade ago -Democratic Socialists.

It solved two purposes: I was able to grammatically use the Leftist manipulated word of "Democratic," and also describe them as what they truly are - Democratic Socialists.

Incredibly, I have found that the phrase Democratic Socialist did and still does and chafe members of the Center-Left Coalition of the Beaufort County Commission, including the disloyal RINO commissioners.

It is good to NOW know that the Republican controlled House is following my lead and laying real words to what truly exists.

Nice. I like people who can stand up to the mindless group think. I would suggest republicans actually try to govern rather than pander to the base. Oh wait. They can't. The mid terms gave them a 5 vote majority in Congress, lost the senate and white house.
