Continued Loading at Winchester Hall
Sure seems like lots of bullets are flying in and out of Frederick County’s Winchester Hall. Doubt is everywhere that the offensive is going to recede anytime soon or during the next four years to come for that matter.
Be that as it may, and the ammo spewing, good citizens will have to endure the gobbled gook. The meanness and vindictiveness continues rather beyond the pale. In these days of “joy to the world” and “peace and goodwill” during Christmas and Hanukkah the new leader appears nothing short of meshugga.
It is now a fact, charter government is going to be a bad thing if the latest developments are any indication. Boo, boo and more boo.
The hurtful cavortings in local government persist and no end appears in site. What is good for Frederick County? There is plenty of noble things most certainly available. Maybe a re-think is warranted of the old and popular adage “all’s fair in love, war and politics.” We can leave the first two out of the discussion.
Mention has been made in previous missives about the need for and use of good manners. Deaf ears have missed these comments. Certainly out of vogue.
Will the end ever rise again for the true art of politics? Definitely does not seem to be in the cards. The deck is stacked against the good for the majority. Unfortunately it is so prevalent from the county’s new executive and her sycophants on the council.
Is the question truly about ethics? Well, rather than use any slang or verbose and unkind vocabulary, the best way to describe the shenanigans under way is to use the word valetudinarian. In the know citizens realize this means the professional enmity or a hypochondriac of those afflicted by their own health.
There is hope the recent change in Frederick County’s leadership won’t end up five decades from now, similar to the national disbarment of Cuba.
Can the public at large throughout the jurisdictions survive the trickeries in store? In all probability they might, but it is not going to be pretty.
The veriest intentions of the first among equals are going to be questioned and followed. The county should not act like or appear similar to a third-world undeveloped country. So far that is the early look and opponents should not be verbally destroyed or executed. Think this might be over kill, but please consider the consequences of splitting the county into two armed camps of divided opinion.
Shades of Barbara Fritchie, may God forgive me,
"Shoot, if you must, this old gray head,
But spare your country's flag," she said.
A shade of sadness, a blush of shame,
Over the face of the leader came;
The nobler nature within him stirred
To life at that woman's deed and word;
"Who touches a hair of yon gray head
Dies like a dog! March on!" he said.....
Now it is time for Winchester Hall to halt what seems to be a continuing call to war.
