Doug Jones Press Release Combats lies

OCTOBER 23, 2006


Doug Jones, candidate for NC House District 116 (Buncombe County), set the record straight today after a recent campaign of false, misleading and negative radio and television ads approved and paid for by his opponent. Jones addressed the following false accusations his opponent has used:
Thomas ad: “Doug Jones is a professional politician.” FALSEI
THE TRUTH: “I am a full-time public school teacher, and a professional educator. I teach US History to 11th grade students at Enka High School. This deliberate deception is an insult to my profession, to my fellow teachers, and to the community that I serve. I would like my opponent to apologize.”
Thomas ad: “Doug Jones will raise the tax on food.” FALSEI
THE TRUTH: “I have offered three specific tax cut proposals (gas tax reduction, car tax elimination, and property tax reform) and have campaigned on each for several months. I made tax relief for working families a cornerstone of my campaign, and have never proposed or supported any increase in the sales tax on food. This is simply a lie.”
Doug Jones closed by encouraging Buncombe County voters to join him in rejecting the politics of mischaracterization, false attack and slander that are being used against him this fall.
“Let’s speak with our vote this year. Let’s show candidates like my opponent, who engage in false attacks, that voters will not tolerate mudslinging.”

Giants Destroy Cowboys

So this was suppose to be the year.  The Cowboys have re-tooled.  They have beefed up the offensive line which was mediocre at best last year.  They have decided to stay with Bledsoe because they want a quarterback with experience and not one that has to grow. 

The lead of the division was on the line.  Neither the defense or the offense were up to the task.  On national TV, the Cowboys played very un-inspired football.  The Giants were a half a step quicker.  They had a better game plan.  They were simply better in all phases of the game.  The Cowboys should be ashamed.  Losing isn’t the problem.  It is not playing like you care that’s the problem.  6 sacks?  4 interceptions?  Give me a break. If they don’t play any better they will be fighting the Redskins to see which team will “win” the cellar of the NFC Easst.  The Panthers (next week’s game) should mop the stadium with the Cowboys if they don’t give a better effort.
