Got the gender wrong, bud. You still didn't answer the question. No surprise you live in "Delray-I can't afford Boca but I'll live next to it".
Who's the loser.

Lived in Boca for 2 years until the snot-nosed a**holes there like you made me puke.

I can buy you for lunch and sell you for dinner and don't forget it weasel-boy/girl. I just have better taste and education to avoid Rat-town.

Anyway, nice chatting and get used to the fact that the adults will be in charge for 6 more years. Depressing thought for a simplistic, talking points mind, like yours. right?

There is nothing conservative or moral with our Congress or our White House. Never has this country witnessed such unprecedented corruption by our elected officials. Lobbyist have hijacked the political process and will do all that is necessary to keep those in power that support them. Lobbyist and their bribes are destroying this country. We did not elect or representative into office take money and other forms of consideration in exchange for their vote. They are not there to live a lavish lifestyle. They are there to represent the interests of their constituents and the nation at large. Most important we need to let Congress know lobbyist and their bribes have to cease, NOW. We need to do this for our children, and the survival of our country. Our founding fathers put their lives on the line for freedom, Thomas Jefferson, John Adams, Benjamin Franklin, Sam Adams, Paul Revere, John Hancock and 50 other men. These men knew what they risked. The penalty for treason was death by hanging. And remember: a great British fleet was already at anchor in New York Harbor The Declaration says, in its second paragraph, that when a people is subjected to a long train of abuses aiming at absolute despotism, "it is their right, it is their duty," to change the government. This duty is higher than one's own personal survival or selfish interest. It may in fact require the sacrifice of one's own life. That is why the Declaration concludes with these noble words:“For the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes and our Sacred Honor." Do we have such mighty men and women of valor today in Congress; in the White House; and most important in the body that elected them? I propose that the people come together to demonstrate our absolute and total disgust for a government that is no longer guided by our Constitution and by honor, but instead by their unmitigated and unquenchable greed and quest for power. The only way to stop this slide into the abyss is by a massive show of support for change in Washington. Those that would be willing to help organize an event not seen since the 1963 March on Washington by Martin Luther King, please respond to this post. To do nothing, to be passive, is shameful and cowardous and we will reap what we sow.

In the past we had the 'best politicians that money could buy', sadly that is no longer true. This is all so pathetic, a drunken bum with an eye for teenage boys. It makes one feel so proud. They need to stop hiding and treat this for what it is. Anything less is a disgrace.

The Dems planted this old story now just so they wouldnt have to take about the issues...because they do not have anything to offer...NOTHING...they depend on the Jerry Springer, Soap Opera, Oprah, The View..limited mental attention public to believe this crap as important hoping it will give them a short time headline before the elections to capture Congress, because they cannot compete on the issues...they offer NOTHING..except higher taxes!!
Exactly what issue would Republicans like to be talking about: National Security, More tax cuts? It's amazing that you think Democrats had something to do with this, easpecially seeing how the leadership didn't bother to tell them. If they had outed this man, do you think Republicans would not of outed a Democrat?
They would of outed the Democrat, when they first heard of it. Now, it's a Republican party mess and they must take what comes.
Maybe you can tell me, what are Republicans plans: To stay the Course? Please tell me what that course is, because so far all I have seen is motto's. Republicans have no plans either.
You should try coming up with a new line of attack: higher taxes. For whom? Where's the sacrifice war calls for? Have REpublicans gone to their supporters and said, we will not have tax cuts untio we win the war? No, they never will. Cutting taxes is making economic growth dependent on tax cuts. What happens when there is nothing left to cut?

Keep dreaming honey…Actually I don’t go to Delray to spend my money on what you claim is the oh so wonderful Atlantic Ave. That’s because you run the risk of getting shot in that horrible ghetto area off 1-95. Let’s not mention Delray’s crime rate and wonderful schools. And what’s with all of your racial comments. In addition to being ignorant, you are also a bigot. What a loser.

So you dont think this whole thing was not premeditated and timed to undermine the Republicans and in fact is not what is known as Dirty Tricks?? Well, ok , if in fact that is what you believe so be it...but why is that when dems have similar if not worse discretions do they circle the wagons, excuse their guilty ones, embrass them, excuse them, and even of all things reelect them...why is that? Could it be that they, that is Dems, are low life, slimy, disingenious, two faced, tax raising, anti military weenies!! Is that it??
Americans, don't like cover ups. That's what this looks like, like Haster was protecting one of his own. I ask you, if Foley was a democrat, do you think the leadership would of investigated? Announced it to the world? Hell yes they would have.
This story has been out there for sometime, papers in Florida ignored it last year. If the Republicans would of dealt with this when it first came up, they wouldn't be in this mess.
I have not seen evidence that the Democrats knew about this or outed him. Seems you want to lay the blame anywhere else but where it actually lies.
What happened to the conservative value of taking personale responsiblitiy? Is it dead, like fiscal conservativism, like the core values REpublicans are supposed to believe in.
Your hatred for the Democrats is blinding you to reality. The REpublicans seems to of tried to keep this under the rug, don't you think they should of done something?

Tony, I'm from Lauderdale so I'm not biased when I say Delray doesn't hold a candle to Boca! Delray is beautiful east of Federal but every town in south Fla is beautiful around the Intracoastal waterway! If someone was coming to Delray for the first time and getting off the interstate they would probably turn around. As far as your nightlife, just read last week that that area is beginning to lose it's lustre, people are not going there much anymore. The owners of those clubs and restaurants are worried! Delray isn't all you think it is. Delray is the pimple on the face of Palm Beach county! Get off your high horse. Who cares where anybody else lives as long as THEY are happy there.

I notice how you NEVER say that you're going to grow some balls and move back to Cuba to take your country back. You're such a pathetic little man.
