I didn't even realize this then, but we passed a law in May to withold dues until we got that commission seat back. A seat that we had been duly voted out of, by the same principles of democracy of which the US is supposed to be champion. Passed a law! Like that gave us a legitimate cause to whine like a toddler that's getting spanked for breaking his toys!
Gah. Our government makes me sick. Mob mentality at its worst. Our country has the collective brains of a two-year-old.
