Oh, this pisses me off! Who paid for this rig?

Together they can:
*Start campaigning on St. John with this expensive and ridiculous truck;
*Name political appointee after political appointee, and then continue to borrow;
*Use over $400,000 of taxpayers' money to make improvements to the governor's private residence;
*Evict seniors from rent-to-own housing communities after their mortgages are paid off;
*Not issue four years' worth of property tax bills;
*Ignore paying 2009 tax returns;
*And jump up for Carnival 2010, without a care in the world.
I guess I am the jackass, after all.

 Revived in 1952, carnival has become the second largest festival in the Caribbean. A month-long series of dazzling pageants and talent shows is held to choose royalty to rein over the festival.  A series of elimination contests to crown top performers are called Calypso Tents. Calypsonions offer satirical commentary on the state of the islands, oftentimes mocking the shenanigans of politicians.

  1. That is definitely something that I do not miss about STJ. I like my politicians and gov't employees who take a bit more of a subtle approach to their corruption.


OK, people, comment here:
