Original post made on Mar 26, 2022

Oh the irony…

People are allowed to talk off topic at a city council meeting for the sake of transparency. Well Jeremy, at least they are allowed to voice their views - off topic or not.

In fact, contrasting viewpoints between two people here at the local rag may get you the “Sniping” award. Funny how that doesn’t work in a public setting, eh Jeremy?

Not everyone has their posts moderated before they're posted. I think it's the person posting, not what you're posting.

Free speech doesn't mean you can say anything you want. At a public meeting or online.

People you don’t agree with apparently tend to get under your skin. Instead of sniping at them, I suggest you try to debate the issue and not make it personal.

By the way, is part two of your argument coming out soon or is that it?
