Gary will have a tough election. Long Beach scrapes the very bottom of the food chain for Congress people. Lowenthal is far more "laura richardson' and far less worthy of the public trust which makes him ideally suited to today's pitiful version of Long Beach. Bankruptcy anyone? anyone?

Yes. Decent hard working worker ("middle") class women and men who enjoy the simple pleasure of an occasional tobacco product have developed "a thick skin".(so to speak) That thick skin enables them to stand up to cyber bullies. After all, they have withstood the suffering of terrible bullying for many years due to unremitting attacks by the Big Democrat political machine and their pals, the wealthy Big-wig operators of taxpayer funded "non-profit" organizations who are primary beneficiary to Big Tobacco settlement money.

The tragedy is the many decent non-smokers of good-will, who are unable to stand up to such bullying. An example is that of little Amanda Todd. Whenever I hear of her untimely death I am reminded of Big-Bully "Joe" Biden bulling young Paul Ryan, interrupting him every time he tried to make a point during the vice president debate and his use of uncontrolled laughter to distract attention away from every serious issue under discussion.

During the last presidential election millions of decent tobacco users sat on their hands rather than to waste their votes on the "opposition" candidate "reformed" tobacco user "Bigtax" McCain.(the self-described "maverick") Let us hope those millions of decent tobacco users join with the many millions more angry former tobacco users who were bullied by Big Government into quitting, and to defeat the Big Democrat gangsters at every level of Big Government.

Overtaxed and underrepresented Long Beachers can do just that by electing the non-Lowenthal candidate to congress.

Funny, because I was there and witnessed the incident as well...I saw an out-of-work actress/bartender named Kelsey Hewlett www.kelseyhewlet.com who was hired by the Democrats for Lowenthal to harass Gary and his family. There was no excuse for her snarky and bizarre behavior...

Chelsea Long Beach.

Address s/b www.kelseyhewlett.com ?

Incidentally, Kelsey Hewlett is reportedly a partisan political activist. In her biography, IMDb states Kelsey Hewlett worked as a field director in a gubernatorial campaign for the former Attorney General of Oklahoma. It seems - as always - there is more to the story than the Government licensed "news" media would have us believe.

I filled out my absentee ballot tonight and will mail it on Monday. This incident by GdL is the main reason I didn't vote for him.

He helped turn Long Beach into a sick mess, physically assaults people he doesn't like, and now he wants more? Remember when he tried to hold council meetings over Skype from a gated community in the Bahamas?
I think this guy needs a brain scan, and psychological evaluation. He seems like a committed psychopath.

Wouldn't it be a travesty after Romney and his young vice president are elected only for the minority of Long Beachers who are still able to pay taxes to be represented by a duplicitous congressman whose philosophical interests side with the rioters?

Hard working Californians have already gotten a taste of post election reality when violent skateboarders ran amok in the streets of Los Angerles, vandalizing and destroying businesses and trashing the automobiles of terrorized shoppers.

What will happen after Lowenthal grocery and goods bag harassment taxes are imposed on the voting majority of dangerous tax eaters as well as the taxpayer supported Thug people? What will happen when unruly bicyclists are required to be licensed, and required to carry liability insurance and to wait at stoplights just like drivers of motor vehicles?

Previous burn-downs of the South Los Angeles/Compton/Long Beach corridor were mostly confined to the Thug community itself. Because the politicians have forced resettlement of the Thug people into every neighborhood, containment will not be possible the next time. Massive "grass roots" resistance will be required to quell the violence. Let us elect a congressman who will not be calling the military out to side against "the people".

The children are always asking me what effect the failed Obama economy is having on America. I always reply by giving them the example of Camden New Jersey, one of the most poverty stricken victims of the Obama economy.

Public spirited charities in Camden are in a desperate battle to prevent outright starvation in the street by providing a few morsels of warm food. For example, the city's soup kitchens work 'round the clock, dispensing a modest fare in polystyrene containers.

It has been recently revealed that "Big Daddy" Lowenthal attempted to criminalize hard working California food service industry entrepreneurs who dispense food products in Polystyrene Food Containers. That effort ended in failure.

Let us take a stand for our unfortunate starving worker ("middle") class brothers and sisters of Camden! What the nation needs least of in these tough economic times is to elect Government politicians at the national level who would try to impose laws that failed "even" in "Liberal" California.

This is a commonly employed tactic of the Lowenthal cabal. Let us never forget that, after imposing the grocery and goods bag harassment tax on the minority of Long Beachers who do not use food stamps, the Lowenthal gang attempted to "eliminate competition" by imposing the Lowenthal harassment tax on the State's entire population.

Yes. I agree. Professor "Big Daddy" Lowenthal is traveling the same path as are the rest of those who came to power after the revolution. First, they "offered choice". Once the "choice" is made, they eliminate choice as a means of achieving revolutionary change.

An example is when the revolutionary ruling class forced hard working waitresses to demand - UNDER PENALTY OF REVOLUTIONARY LAW!- whether their hungry working ("middle") class customers wanted "smoking or non-smoking?" once diners made their "choice", the ruling revolutionary despots eliminated "choice" -BY LAW!".

Once that was accomplished, the few surviving restauranteurs lost the benefit of economy of scale. In order to stay in business, they needed to both to increase prices and reduce portion size. Now, tipless waitresses - many of whom are hard working single moms - are forced to spend 8 or 10 hour workdays cooped up in tiny cubicles at drive-through windows breathing carcinogenic secondhand automobile exhaust fumes.

Another example is forcing worker ("middle") class checkout people in Council controlled grocery stores to ask hungry Long Beach grocery shoppers "Tree destroying paper bags or convenient reusable plastic?" After hungry grocery shoppers made their "choice", revolutionary Council slapped those who do not use taxpayer funded food stamps with Lowenthal grocery bag harassment taxes.

The list goes on and on. Doesn't the nation deserve better? It is already too late for the minority of Long Beachers who pay taxes. Let we not inflict this on the entire nation. The "maverick" non-Lowenthal candidate is not perfect, as few men are, but the fact is that Long Beachers are not sending God to Washington.

Let us elect a non-Lowenthal candidate. Let decent Long Beachers have mercy on their fellow Americans.

I could see this woman "stalking" GDL if he was out with his family in a private setting, but he hires trackers to follow his opponent around. The guy is a hypocrite. He wanted to talk "business" opportunities for the people who support him and because he couldn;t make a business contact becuse the camera was on he got flustered. He's in this for himself, not the community. He let money get in the way of what really matters in life. There's a warm place in hell waiting for GDL. You can count on that win or lose.
The bigger question... is this what our state political process has come to? Sending out gadflys with camera's to tape conversations DeLong is having with voters, or follow the candidate around when he's taking his daughter out to a carnival? How creepy and obnoxious is that? What political purpose does this satisfy, aside from harassment?

Years ago, if this was done, it would be done SECRETLY. But now it seems to be, "yeah, I'm a creep. what are you going to do about it?" There's no shame! And everyone is up DeLong's butt about his reaction, and it seems nobody is grinding Lowenthal over the practice! What is THAT about? Where's the outrage? There is none!

We can now grab an Iphone, take a picture of our finger up our butt, upload it to Facebook in 2 seconds, and all our friends will hit the "like" button. If we luck out, it will go "viral" and websites across the world will find ways to monetize it!

What are we turning into? Our politician's cynicism, greed, and pride in amoralism is simply a reflection of us–and we've turned very very ugly.

So now our political process has devolved into a simple choice: which candidate is less of a wretched, soulless piece of miserable psychotic shitt?

That criteria makes it a very tight race between DeLong and Lownethal. And pointless/depressing.

Be grateful that Long Beach deteriorated into nothing more than LowenthalLand. Be proud that you wouldn't allow that to happen to your family.
