Latest Gazette

John Tiley has another issue of the Waxhaw Gazette up now.

In Waxhaw-related news:

* Another mention of the fact he's only spoken with one of the mayoral candidates.
* He also publishes what appears to be Daune Gardner's letter to the editor (originally featured in the Union County Weekly). He's got in a handy-dandy one-page format for those who still haven't read it.

There's also an article on the ongoing Occupy Wall Street (and related) protests where John appears to approve of the ragtag bunch of hipster protestors and their wide-ranging demands, ranging from higher education being a human right. I personally don't see how they can be taken very seriously. There is much evidence this is just the latest attempt by the left to replicate the more conservative Tea Party, including the Occupy groups hodge-podge of historically liberal complaints and lack of protesting at the source.

Much of their complaints revolve around big business getting its hooks in government, but they've yet to protest occupy the very government that beds itself with big business. Strange. Especially since the head of the current administration has taken in more Wall Street money than any politician in the last 20 years. That's a lot of politicians he's one-upped with Wall Street money.
