How’s that campaign promise to “go after the gangs” working out?


What does "going after the gangs" mean, plumbum? Please explain.


Not my promise. Inquiry with the source.


Why should I do that? You're the one whining about it, as if the Sheriff is not doing just that. What are your criteria for success that he is not meeting in your mind? There must be some criteria that has not been met if you constantly bring it up, or are you just complaining to hear yourself complain...again...without basis?


You asked, that’s my answer. Not my campaign promise. Inquire at the source.


So you're just whining. Got it. The Sheriff is doing a great job.


What does a campaign promise to “go after the gangs” have to do with this?


It's a demonstration of irrational thinking, CD, brought on by a long-haul case of TDS. There is no vaccine. [lol]


Too funny to watch these lefty liberals get into a spin trying to deflect anything that Hidin' Biden screws up into anti Trump rant. The guy still lives in their heads 24/7.

BTW, I found some Laphroaig while out for a spin today. I'm going to set it back with a bottle of Finlaggen and have a taste test at our Bosco Manor Fourth of July backyard cookout, that Quid Pro Joe authorized, and first-ever mask burning.



Where'd you find the Laphroaig, bosco? Locally?


Several places carry Laphroaig, gabe. I know you can get it at 7th Street Liquors in Frederick, and at Gateway here in Thurmont. Good stuff!!


I happened to find it in DJ Liquors near the Home Depot on West Patrick. They also had Jura, but it's a bit more pricey. The Finlaggen is harder to find and when I do i grab a bottle to have in stock.
