Don't take the GLOBE's word for it! Check it out for yourself!

If you disagree with the views of the Globe they call you neysayer or an obstructionist. If you say something positive they call you a dreamer who can’t deliver on your promises. How would they ever know what I can deliver or anyone else for that matter. We can fail just by not trying. There is no dishonor in failure if you’ve given it your best shot. Ironwood only needs leadership and new commissioners who will work hard to improve our economy. Of course it will be hard, but that’s no reason not to make the effort. Look out your window, drive around town if you think we should do better, do you think are taxes are being wasted or our water rates too high? If so, then you believe as I do. We need to go in a new direction and I’m hoping that you will all join me in on that trip. Let’s start that journey November 6th. Please Vote.

Now, the Globe is attacking Jim Albert’s Website and those who post on it. Unlike Joe VanDeLaarshot who wrote under an assumed name at the Shawano Leader or the publisher's wife Mrs Karious who writes under the “pseudo” name Diane Montz, Lou has used his name on each post. He is not one bit ashamed of what he has posted. It’s just what he has been telling our taxpayers all along. I would like to point out that pseudo names are the” in thing” on the internet. If you go to any major blog on the internet you will see and read exactly the same things as you will see on the “about_ironwood” website. The Globe talks about cartoons created on jib jab. Lou had never seen those cartoons until Mr. Vandel wrote about them. Some of those are way to gruesome for me, but this is Halloween and I have noticed dozens of movies just like this on the TV and the best selling movie in the theaters this week was also an horror film. This is our culture its been that way before we were born. BUT unlike the Daily Globe and our current city commissioners Lou does not tell them what to read or what to write, neither does he tell the voters that they’re stupid as does the Globe with their subtle six month PRO LIBRArY TAX campaign. He prefers to present the facts and let the taxpayers decide for themselves.

Notice the frequent syntax failures and spelling mistakes in everything he posts.

This functional illiteracy may be considered trivial, but it's made especially ironic by the fact that this man has used anti-library heresay to gain support of the "ignorance demographic." Telling the people that the commissioners shuffled money from the cemetery to the library "behind closed doors" without giving any sort of source or evidence to back up his claim--and the globe wrote a one-sided article in support of him. The simple FACTS of the matter were that the library expansion was paid for by a federal block grant. So even if the ignorant members of the populace thought the potential knowledge and betterment that a library would bring to this educational wasteland was a waste of their tax dollars, they hadn't the right to complain about it because it wasn't their tax dollars that paid for it to begin with. Lou's claims were bogus in the extreme.

Thank god he didn't win.

Lying is the lifeblood of politicians everywhere within the confines of our most excellent union.......but.......the pool of potential political candidates along the Range seems not to include the very wise.... or the wise... or..?
Well.. there do seem to be many "emotionally retarded" folks living there - the place has got that going for it anyway. Oh yeah... and tittie bars!!! Yea!!!!

What kind of fool would live in Ashland?

Dee dee dee..........Same kind as lives in the FIB state....
(I don't mean you - you sound more retarded. Don't get me wrong - you are foolish for sure - it's just that you sound more cognitively disabled. Extra gene?)
Maybe you are not an idiot triple D. Maybe you are just a monkey pushing the computer board keys that were smeared with peanut butter in order to encourage you to spell out those simple minded one line posts. In that case DDD, you are one smart money!! What kind of monkey are you? A cute little capuchin? One of those "Organ grinder" style monkeys? A chimp?
I bet you are really fun!! Do you crap all over you owner' house or do you wear a doll diaper?
Oh, the things I bet you could tell us, if only you could truly think!!

Now Dee dee dee (what kind of stupid NAME is that?} Does Dee dee dee stand for "Dumb, Dumber, Dumbest"? No, wait - it stands for Demented, dick-headed, dumbshit.
OK, that was unfair. It's apparent that if a "thought" cannot be expressed in one, poorly composed line - you cannot express it.
I fyou really are from, as another poster stated from the "FIB" stae - please stay home. Most of us - not the business owners but the citizens - wish you would.

I do not reside in Ashland. Seriously - how old are you? About four? You certainly have the writing abilities of a four year old.......CHIMP!
aND i THOUGHT IT WAS "Dee Dee DEE", not "Dee dee dee".
Anyway, not being from Ashland, I do not understand your code name. I'm sure that you and your monkey chums think it quite clever..... for a CHIMP!
Now, I have nothing against chimps. I find them, on balance, to be quite entertaining.Why, I once saw a chimp at the circus that could ride a unicycle while smoking a big cigar!!!
Do you smoke big cigars? I'll bet you do. Did you get your taste for them in a FIB prison?

Why do the people in Ashland hate working? Get a job you fools!

Assuming that you can think - what makes you think that folks in Ashland do no work for a living?
Why do so many flatlanders flock to Wisconsin anyway?- Because Illinois is the armpit of America!
BTW Dee Dee DEE, do you have a J-O-B? If you do, I wonder what it possibly could be.
Something not too complicated, I'm sure - you really do not come across as being very bright.
Maybe I'm not being very nice. I mean - you could have Downs Syndrome. Thats it, isn't it? Skeeziks was right after all - you have an extra gene!
Lucky you! You are rich in genetic material!
