Apparently, comments I made in the local paper’s web site (see this blog entry for more info) has caused some to accusing me of being a political insider. Here’s an excerpt of a conversation:
Daniel Seagondollar: I always enjoy reading diatribe from propaganda shills like Harley. They always start with “I was on the fence.” As though they were trying to be fair and then set off on a one sided slander rant about their opposition. In my review I haven’t found a single point in the past two years where Harley has espoused anything but total support for the Wal-Mart. Now that position is fine, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but why can’t people just be honest? I’m witnessing both sides of this issue present ridiculously pathological arguments that aren’t revelant. This issue isn’t about fresh vegetables or Joshua trees it’s just a question about giving special privileges to big business.
Dan Harley: Wow Daniel Seagondollar ! I must say that I’m a bit flattered that someone who isn’t in law enforcement would spend two years doing research on me. Do you want an autograph?
I’m sorry to admit that your opinions doesn’t mean nearly as much to me as mine apparently does to you. Also, I wouldn’t think calling people names like a little fourth grader would be very productive. Then again, that tends to be your style and to each their own…
What baffles me is why you make enemies out of people for no reason. Perhaps one day you will realize that you are your own worst enemy.
Daniel Seagondollar: Dan Harley, I know who my enemies are and they hide behind lies to feather their own nest. You and the rest of the clowns playing small town politics have one enemy, the truth. If stating the truth makes enemies I’ll stand guilty as charged with pride.

It’s obvious that Mr. Seagondollar and I aren’t seeing eye-to-eye on a few things, and that’s unfortunate.
