Who would know better about male privilege, Seadog, than someone who had it and lost it?

Seadog, stop inventing stories about me. Nowhere have I even hinted at any "woe is me" complaint. All I did was point out Horrigan's hands off policy for minorities, as was reported in the PJ. That hands off policy is pure Republican/Libertarian but the funny thing is, it always gets applied to poor people and minorities but not to the wealthy elite and corporate plutocracy!

So if you want to debate the merits, Seadoo, then stop propping up straw men by putting words in my mouth.

Surprise, surprise... the journal picks the republican.

Are you even trying to be relevant anymore? All the evidence points that Horrigan is the opposite of what you describe. He is the candidate that offered NO answers.

-his plan for job creation "jobs will open when people retire" Nice. -his plan for the elderly "not the problem of the govt., I have no answers"

Instead of just lugging along with the same old crap, why don't you (the Journal) push him for these answers and be relevant for once. Maybe then you will be more respected as a newspaper and not failing, with an obsolete website.

Emelye - "Enjoy your white, heterosexual, male privilege, Seadog" - the only thing you posted was another woe is me gay, racist opinion. Your post had nothing to do with your accuations about Horrigan or your statement that minorities "deserve the same kind of consideration for their specific needs as any other group". I'll ask again: "Please tell us what considerations those hard working minorities do not receive that the hard working whites do".

As for "male priviledge" comment, I find that a bit amusing coming from you.

Hey Emelye you didnt answer Sesdog's question.But thats not surprising,you love bomb throwing without any facts.Answer this,how has govt's war on poverty worked out.The left thinks you can keep throwing more money at the problem with no accountability and everything will be fine.They pat themselves on the back and feel good while the underclass continues to grow.Of course thats good news for dems.

Don't waste your rebuttals on Emelye. As the saying goes: "Don’t argue with idiots. They drag you down to their level and beat you with experience."

"Most of the members of the Hispanic community and other people of color are hard working taxpayers who deserve the same kind of consideration for their specific needs as any other group"

I'm a bit confused Emelye - if they are hard working taxpayers, WHY do believe they need any consideration?? I'm a hard working taxpayer and I don't believe the government OWES MY ANYTHING. Maybe since you do not work, you feel that way. Maybe because you consider yourself a "minority" (by your own choice), you believe the government owes you something. Please tell us what considerations those hard working minorities do not receive that the hard working whites do. I don't expect an answer since you "bomb throwing race baiters NEVER give one.

Well then Norm, by that logic I will be waiting for your endorsement of Larry Barmore for County Clerk, you know, "the one with private sector management experience".

As county chair, I pointed out to Ron Johnson some time ago that the Ogden owned newspapers (Observer and Post-Journal) would be endorsing the Republican for County Executive as they have every single time except for Ted Smith. Our county's voters are pretty smart and have no problem voting Dem one year and GOP the next. Best wishes to both candidates and may the one with private sector management experience (Ron) be the winner!

Most of the members of the Hispanic community and other people of color are hard working taxpayers who deserve the same kind of consideration for their specific needs as any other group. Mr Horrigan, based on his own statements, doesn't seem to care about them at all, however, and thinks the government should wash its hands of them.

This endorsement, like so so many of the other endorsements the PJ has published, is dead wrong.

"Johnson argued getting the Hispanic community involved in providing services would be the best solution. On the other hand, Horrigan said it is not necessarily the role of government to become involved, but up to nonprofits, religious groups and other organizations." htt p://ww w.post-journal.co m/page/content.detail/id/630282/Horrigan--Johnson-Discuss-Plans-For-Growing-Minority.html

Mr Horrigan doesn't care to help minority citizens. He wants to shove the responsibility to churches (who attach religious dogma to who they will help) and other NGO's whose funding is a lot smaller and a great deal less secure. The end result is clear: people in the lower margins of our society get the raw end of the deal.

Why? The article doesn't really say but since Mr Horrigan is a Republican, it seems his idea of government is one that doesn't help people. Or, at least, doesn't help people of that particular class and ethnicity.

To even suggest that there is any racial overtones in this election is ridiculous. Vince Horrigan is an outstanding man of great character. His work with the Red Cross and his service to our country and community speaks for itself. To say he doesn't care about racial minorities is a sad attempt to slur his name and reputation.

"He doesn't care about the racial minorities that live in our cities as shown by his lack of enthusiasm for helping them out"

WHAT??? Now, according to Emelye, Horrigan is a racist. Just more mud slinging, more bomb throwing, and more of the left's only defense to their give always - RACISM! Wow Emelye, you have made some wacky statements in the past, but this is one of the dumbest.
