    Another day and another endorsment for McNerney. Nothing new, but ii reiterates similar points that I have already stated.

    Remember, Darrell I prefer Peet's mocha and not latte! LOL!

    I am enjoying my San Francisco view as I can see the Bay Bridge and AT&T park from my office.

    Family Farmer? ROFL

    Mr McNerneys campaign staff stated...You have never answered my questions. You just give the same old line.

    Of course, why would I focus on red herrings meant to distract from what is reallt important to the voters.

    Vote McNerney if you want what we got the last four years and voting from liberal legislation that Obama/Pelosi/and McNerney favor... for example Obama"not"care.

    Vote for Gill for you prefer a change in direction. If you want more jobs and a vote against far left liberal legislation like Obama"notcare, vote Gill...

    Everything else is just noise.

    By the way, I do know it is likely that what I say makes you laugh,, just as you looking out your SF window in your plush wealthy office makes you laugh as well.

    You see out the SF window so many homeless and suffering that liberal policies created, and of course you are laughing since you fooled so many for so long... but I do not think it is funny and I am not laughing.

    Keep them coming!

    Whether it is Mr McNerney or Mr Gill that is elected, I hope that they allocate enough money to education. Your educational shortcomings are glaring.
    It is quite ironic that Ricky got an academic scholarship funded by a Democratic congressman. Yet if he were to win, he would vote for a budget that would substantially reduce educational funding for those in Ivy League, UC and Cal State schools.
    As for the Bay Area, I do have a concern because that is where I currently live. It is also where Ricky has interests in two condos in San Francisco.
    So, how can someone have interest in two condos in one of the most expensive real estate markets, when they have never held a full time job? Mom and Dad's money? Not a sexy answer, but it is the correct one. Ricky has SF in his heart as well! He has had an interest in these properties well before "buying" a home in the Central Valley.

    Mr Thompson of the McNerney campaign staff stated...Yes, I like Peets coffee but do not live in San Francisco. That is another misconception you have.

    Never said that you lived in San Francisco, which is another misconception of many you have.

    You have San Francisco and bay area in your heart. That is where your interests lay. As far as I know, you live in McNerney's house that he pretends to live in in Stockton. In fact, one could easily conclude you have a close relationship with Mr McNerney considering the animosity and hate you throw Mr Gill's way... My guess is that you are his driver or butler.

    As far as this race is concerned, there are only two factors to consider in determining who to vote for.

    Vote Gill if you value conservative principles and legislation favorable to San Joaquin county.

    Vote McNerney if you, like Mr Thompson still have your heart in San Francisco and appreciate Nancy Pelosi and her far left wing radical voting record since McNerney is her rubber stamp.

    Your answers:

    1) McNerney has always lived in the area he represented. McNerney's concerns for the Valley are reflected on his voting record on issues that are important to the Valley-water rights, agriculture, veteran services, etc.
    2) Yes, McNerney does have a company. The license was suspended in January 2007 (when he became Congressman!). You are misinformed the same way you believed that he was a military veteran. It is time that you stopped eating so many crickets!

    Yes, I like Peets coffee but do not live in San Francisco. That is another misconception you have.

    You have still to answer my questions from previous postings. I believe this is because of your deficient education.

    Here is another set of questions for you to ponder:

    1)Why does Ricky claim to have such loyalty to the Valley but yet have interest in two condos in San Francisco? In fact, he lived in one of them (in Rincon Tower) during his last year of law school. The last time I checked it is quite more expensive to live in the Rincon Tower than in Berkeley (which is by no means cheap!). He had these real estate interests well before buying a house in the Central Valley!

    2) Also, for the man who claims to "know having earned the value of a dollar while working in the family business" wouldn't it been more efficient to live in Berkeley versus San Francisco? Isn't this a way to save money especially during tough economic times?

    3) How can someone who has never held a full time job have two real estate interests in one of the most expensive real estate markets in the United States?

    Apparently, Ricky likes San Francisco quite a lot! I cannot say I blame him! He appears to have pulled the wool over your eyes for a long time Darrell!

    I also find it insulting that he claims to call himself a small businessman when there is clear evidence that he has never held a full time job.

    Family Farmer? LOL!
    Small Businessowner? ROFLAD!

    Clearly, Mr Thompson has enjoyed looking out his bay office window in San Francisco while sipping on his latte. His view; hundreds of homeless pan handlers that are a result of liberal policies McNerney endorses... who then claims to be a Christian all the while causing pain and suffering in his own community. How sad that the bay area perceives they know what is best for the rest of California and attempts to plant a Bay area rubber stamp (McNerney)in San Joaquin.

    I have three questions for the McNerney San Francisco office represented by Mr Thompson.
    1. Why do you insist on dominating California's political arena by planting loyal bay area cronies like McNerney in areas like San Joaquin?
    2. Why would anyone trust a man who pretends to live in our area (SanJoaquin) just for selfish reasons to get elected but has all his vested interests, friends and family in the Bay Area.
    3. Why would anyone trust McNerney who claims to be a CEO of a company that never operated as a business in order to bolster the appearance that he had business experience?

    Have you found a mainstream group or publication outside the liberal Stockton Record (that is as notoriously liberal as The New York Times) that supports any of your claims Darrell?

    Until you do, I urge you to be quiet.

    How are you doing filing out your John Birch membership society application?

    I have two questions for you Darrell:

    a) How can someone who has never held a full time job call themselves a small businessowner?

    b) If Ricky is a family farmer, how was he involved in the family harvest during the last seven years? Harvest is usually done in the fall when school starts, and it is a long commute between Princeton, NJ and Berkeley, CA to Lodi, CA.

    Family farmer? LOL!
    Small businessowner? LMBO!

    Mr. Thompson, Please enjoy your morning San Francisco cup of coffee with your boss,
    Mr. McNerney. How funny that San Francisco is not satisfied having representatives in their area to represent their concerns but also want to stretch their sphere of influence by planting bay area representatives (McNerney) in San Joaquin. Can you see the SF pan handlers from your office window? I know they all would vote for McNerney.

    McNerney? San Joaquin concerns? LOL[lol]

    Did Ricky delve into his extensive business experience that included being the head of a beverage company? Wait! He only volunteered for his brother!

    Did he go in and talk about how he can rent or buy a home when he has never held a full time job? I don't know if his parent's money is a good answer, but it is the correct one.

    Did he realize that his carpetbagger charges are getting old? They are so old that The Stockton Record (an endorsement that Gill coveted, endorsed Pombo from 1994-2006 and with the exception of 1996 and 2008 has endorsed every Republican Presidential candidate) endorsed his opponent for his lack of experience and failure to truly understand the concerns of Valley residents that are struggling? Moreover, it gave kudos to his opponent for understanding the concerns of Valley residents-water rights, Veteran services, etc.

    The only reason Ricky is relevant is the money that he has from his parents and their wealthy connections. Besides his inflated and exaggerated experience, he is better suited to get his FIRST full time job and run locally before thinking of running for Congress.

    Gill is extremely arrogant to think of Congress as an entry level job.

    Ricky Gill-the boy born on 3rd base who thinks he hit a triple! I hope he did not choke on the silver spoon in his mouth during the debate!

    Family Farmer? ROFL!!
