The Running Realtor: The Great Schlep

A blend of ramblings about Real Estate & Running around New Haven County and the Connecticut Shoreline

The Great Schlep

The Great Schlep has surfaced in the news recently touting their latest tactics during the Columbus Day weekend to utilize the young and dumb in an effort to bribe the old and feeble.

Hope my opening line catches attention but I do not really consider college students young and dumb or their grandparents old and feeble.  However I have always despised the tactics of brainwashing the American youth to carry out the agenda of middle-aged Americans.

The Great Schlep is a perfect example of a misguided message. The message in my opinion encourages young people to lie, cheat and steal in an effort to buy a few more votes for a presidential candidate.  

What do you think of The Great Schlep?

Hope the kids respect their grandparents enough not to use bribery!

I was just surprised when we saw the story on CBS this morning a young man telling his grandma that if she votes the way he wants and his guy wins the election he will ask his girlfriend to marry him.

Boy, I bet his girlfriend feels special!

It's plain crap. No substance, all emotion and crap.

Dan I guess I am among the old and feeble, because that young woman does fit the stereo type of the dumb college student to me.

Dan, Without getting into the politics of the candidates.  She's a schmuck and that was a piece of crap!  I can't believe what Sandra wrote - that's twisted as well.

Sandra... Maybe his girlfriend told him where to go after the news...

Craig... Yes it is.... Good like next weekend, hope the weather holds up.

George... Has it been that long? She looks well beyond college age!  

Marc... Politicians are always slinging crap at each other but this is a poor tactic.
