    Not to pile on, but I really just want to pile on. To quote Bob:

    You can’t spell (“their” vs. “there”)…
    You should just “trust [politicians] to do their job” (sic).

    I re-read the whole thing, searching for a misuse of their or there, and couldn’t find one. “Their” is the correct usage in that quote, and I assume that was what the (sic) was for. Unless he was upset about the missing ‘s’ on job, which would just be nitpicking.

    On a more serious note, picking apart the grammar of a guy who can’t even spell his own name right is just a pointless endeavor.

    God bless,

    Well Bob,

    1. I think the saying goes “if you feel like you’re losing in the argument, pick apart their grammar, that’s the smart thing to do”. My apologies for the error.
    2. My arguments are flimsy? I admitted this, of course they’re flimsy, I don’t have time to look into everything my municipal government does, I did not research this in depth whatsoever.
    3. You’re the precise person I’m talking about in the post. Has too much time on their hands, cares too much about politics and is still in the minority. I’m not arguing he was perfect, I’m arguing he had a vision.
    4. The second point I make was that it’s polarizing, so this makes a lot of sense that we completely disagree on this topic but you had to make it personal referencing my high school social studies class and lack of education.
    5. Bob if you’re banking on your knowledge of how society thinks about politics from public education, you my friend have already lost and I feel bad for you.
    6. Obviously people liked him, the guy he endorsed for this past election won easily.
    7. The fact that I was too young to remember our last mayor isn’t a strong argument, you didn’t even share what you remember he did. Obviously you don’t remember either. I rest my case.
    8. By the end of your comment you make a straw-man argument about my credentials and claiming I am a wannabe branding expert. I never claimed to be a branding expert, got that point right my friend, I’m definitely no expert. Branding only works on cattle. No one cares about brand anymore, what they care about are results, and everyone in the city remembers the “I Love Regina” campaign.

    You have an agenda to get across and that’s fine, so do I. Sometimes I have to be the jackass whisperer on here. For future reference, you can disagree with someone without trying to make it personal, that’s good conflict. Making fun of a mans mustache is just plain wrong. You’re a sick, sick man.

    Hey Bob, thanks for reading though.

    Jeph,

    Not sure how I came across this piece, but you should learn how to write. You can’t spell (“their” vs. “there”), your grammar is horrible, and your reasoning is flimsy (“We don’t have time to check everything his office does, that’s why you have elected officials, you should be able to trust them to do their job.”). You are supposed to be a professional consultant, right? While Mayor Fiacco did some good things, you come across like a desperate consultant hoping for work from him in his new job.

    If you don’t believe something, you just say it was “fabricated”, while admitting that you’re too lazy to actually look into the facts, whatever they might be. You seem to believe that in a democracy, people shouldn’t care about issues. You should just “trust [politicians] to do their job” (sic). Really? Maybe in Eastern Lower Slobobia, but not in Canada. Did you ever take a social studies course in school?

    You state that you can’t remember what the previous mayor did. Could that be because you were still reading Archie comics at the time? Do you really think that your comments are weighty? They read like a first-year business student’s essay – one that might garner a C+.

    Finally, your brand seems to be your moustache and your over-reliance on your personality. Based on your website and your social media presence, it’s very unclear why you think you possess branding expertise. What major branding projects have you led? You might want to give that some thought.

    Good luck in the future,

    Bob
