Pissquality. Must remain sober throughout long nights watching the Mayor partake of many strong shots of various moon shines. Must be able to tolerate nonsensical Mayor and tuck him into bed on his driveway after he has pissed himself like his Brookpark Buddy Tom Coyne.
hmmmm....did he drive himself home saturday after interfering, i mean, helping the police on the scene and doing his drunk dialing act??

maybe his party strolled over to chrissie's pad and they partook of some vegan wine with vegan cheese at 3am and talked about how they all were pretenders....

You all are as responsible as he is for what you believe are the problems with Akron. You claim the man is killing the city yet all you can muster is your junior high sense of humor. You are either part of the solution or part of the problem. Your juvenile joking, over and over and over and over again is not a solution.
are you honestly trying to convince someone that satire, humor, or sarcasm have no use in the political/social arena?

Is that because you are lacking there?

What you folks engage in is certainly not satire (you lack the sophistication) and its barely humor. The problem with the sarcasm is that it's all you seem to have. Without substance, it's simply boorish and stupid.

OK

Just for shits and "sophisticated" giggles, let's start listing folks who used their abilities and wit to skewer politicians, but never pursued political careers, and still contributed to the general social pursuit of democratic ideals.

I'll start:

Lenny Bruce
Kurt Vonnegut
Samuel Clemens

Now I'm being ridiculed by a fat, alcoholic, disabled, functional illiterate and a person who legally changed her name to Miss Tia. I'm cut to the quick.

All of those folks were brilliant, funny, and actually applied their wit to matters of substance. If you seriously mean to compare anyone on these boards to any of those people you are more far gone than I thought.

And what you're not acknowledging Norman, is that government in Akron is a closed system, much like a heat pump. In this case, it would more correctly be referred to as a heat pimp.

Every step is taken to make certain that anything that may clog the pipes is not permitted in. The system is oiled often with the most slippery juice to make sure it all keeps turning. documentation is frowned upon.

Thats how the system keeps working.

go ahead. Try to refute me.

so...local political administration is not a matter of substance?

Or you dont find posters here brilliant or funny?

Or both?

Or sophisticated?

If such is the case, why bother communicating with those you feel beneath your class?

And yes, there are a couple of regular posters here who I would guess have been influenced by some of the great American satirists.

That you can't recognize it speaks for itself.

Now you are just being contrary and you are rapidly becoming boring. Your comments about complexion and Melissa and drinking ad nauseum have no substance. And, the majority of the anti-mayor posters are neither brilliant nor funny.

If it is such an impenetrable system, why do you continue to whine about it? You are just using that as an excuse for your failures.

Oh give me a break. That's pure lunacy. Who do you fancy yourself to be, Vonnegut? Oh that's rich. I imagine Mayor P Quack or whatever he calls himself makes you recall H.L. Mencken? Wow.
