Patriot Paul attends Mayor Ballard's Inaugural Ball

ROLLERCOASTER REFORM

1-30-08
The Indiana Roof Ballroom on Thursday’s Inaugural Ball for the newly elected Indianapolis Mayor Ballard became the site for a much anticipated event for those who initially supported him and those Johnny-come-latelys who wanted to clamor expo facto attention. Emceed by radio talk show host, Greg Garrison, Ballard’s pithy recitation of his 10 itemized Ballard’s Rules left no doubt that despite his down home demeanor, this marine officer means business, with crime in his crosshairs and accountability as the team uniform.

Good food, beverages, and dancing ruled the evening where several tax reform and repeal advocates received personal thanks from both Ballard and the Governor, who admittedly looked alittle frayed and took a seat. News of the evening from activists was the controversial property tax ‘caps’ legislation that just switched houses and was met with a roadblock of amendments; not the least of which included the horrid lawmaker word “repeal”.

The evening was a great gesture from a humble person, but let no one underestimate the Mayor’s strengths again.

On a personal note, my two words to Governor Daniels were “Repeal” and “Repeal”. If there was any doubt he had stepped from his rollercoaster into Activists territory, it’s no wonder he had to take a seat.

Hi Paul,

It's ex post facto you're looking for. Most times when one hears it spoken, it is all run together.
