A Newman, you seem to think it is alright for you to get off topic; you know so much about what goes on at City Hall; the Cherryville Chamber of Commerce and more.....I was just thinking that you ought to run for all of them since you are so intelligent and you know so much about everyone and everyone's business and how much they pay for an automobile!
Every bit of the things I have commented on have come from news coverage. As far as the automobile in question I am referring to the value of the car. Look it up . You will find that the automobile in question is worth, in poor condition,$463,000. He may not have paid that much for it you are right. But since it is a PROVEN fact that he was defrauding OUR government and plead guilty to this crime, I say that everyone with in our Government should be looked at with suspicion. The fact that so many in OUR government have been found guilty of crimes points to an underlying CULTURE of crime. You seem to be saying lets forget and move on. I say "HELL NO!" It is time to clean house and ensure that #1 this type of culture is no more and #2 that we ensure this will not happen again. I refuse to put my head in the sand and forgive and forget. You seem to think it is ok.

This whole building deal stinks to high heaven. It points to the culture I speak of. You do not see it. So be it. That is your right but it is my right to get on my soapbox and cry to heaven and object to being ripped off. And that is exactly what I will do. You do not like my reasoning then I question why you wish for the light of justice to NOT be shined on our WHOLE GOVERNMENT!

Off Topic:
It was my understanding that the money "he" got from our government was not to purchase cars, but to purchase guns. That is what was in the paper and the television. Mr. Newman, I never said to let them go. They all have been arrested and now they all are paying for the wrong they have done. When they have served their time, if they live that long; get released, are you still going to condemn them? No, you don't have to forgive anyone and you don't have to
forget and that is your right. Someone once told me, "Believe only half of what you see and nothing that you hear". We saw the guns being taken from his home, but I never saw any cars. I am certainly not upholding anyone, but I think that everything has come to an end. I surely hope so! As for you feeling ripped off, I am sorry because I don't believe in my heart of hearts that Cherryville selling the building was ripping anyone off. Honestly, I think that was done to regain some of the funds that were taken. I really have no clue and I have no clue as to what anyone could say to ease your mind and I feel bad that you have so much anger. We that live in Cherryville try to survive one day at a time; there is nothing else left!
