Barkley, get a life. Your very first interaction with me was to call me trite and tired. You know all of this supposed outrage would be so much more believable it all of you Mike Alford Fanboys and Girls put your money where your very large mouths are. $20 from each of the 1485 people who thought "iron mike" would be the very best candidate Martinez had to offer would have actually put him in the hunt. But all this blowharded talk has proven to me is he's nothing more than Martinez political underbelly's useful ____. You fill in the blank.

MEZA NOW.... T. AS IN "TRUTH"???? Yes I do want that from YOU!.. Yet again...FOR ALL TO SEE/ You Don't Won't or Can't just simply Answer YOUR OWN statements about me! If anyone on here thinks her tactic's are fair, that MEZA makes unsubstantiated statements and then won't explain, Please say so! I am not speaking for ...Anyone but myself! I simply BELIVE that when you are called a "LIAR" as she called me// in a longer statement stated twice above//..... I deserve to have her to TELL THE TRUTH on that issue and be illuminated! Please ALL NOTE She wont Answer! She spends hours of times attacking/ When the "Truth" would suffice! Now it is "You must have a thin with the letter ..T" what does that mean? If it is as in "TRUTH" well on this issue you seem to not even be acquainted with the word "TRUTH"! DONALD E. BARKLEY
