382 GRIPES and Griping Strong!



I had to do it! I had to create a blog so you and I could gripe about all of "The Crap" that we encounter everyday in our lives. Believe me, there is plenty! You can now come to this blog to Gripe because you have the right to do so. Over time, we will Gripe about topics ranging from sports to politics to just about all of the garbage that happens around us. When you Gripe, you can add your name or not. It's your right! You can vent any way you want. Use foul language if you are angry enough to and if you are offended, just Gripe It! Hell, we have been banned from Facebook twice! You can Gripe about people, places and things. The only thing I ask is if you are going to Gripe about someone and you use their name, make sure you have the facts straight or say it's your opinion. Otherwise they will sue your and my ass off! It's your RIGHT TO GRIPE! You can respond to one of our Gripes or you can lay down your own Gripe. It's easy. To post your own Gripe just email it to therighttogripe@hotmail.com and we will get it on. You can also post a Gripe on our Facebook page. Just search The Right To Gripe. If you don't want to write it down, just click on one of the boxes below each Gripe to give your opinion. You can also become an official "Griper". All you need to do is "Sign Up" and create an account. IT'S FREE! So, don't sit back and take it, just GRIPE IT!

The Smith Debate

There seems to be a debate going on right now concerning White Supremest, skinhead, Nazi Steve Smith. This debate has carried over to radio talk shows and water coolers all over town.  Some people have contacted the R2G to say that I was incorrect with my noting that Smith was elected to the Republican Committee with one write-in-vote, his own.  It appears that information is floating out there stating that he actually had three write-in-votes.  It is now time to put this debate to rest once and for all.  I just went to the Luzerne County Board of Elections returns which are posted on their web site  and came up the official results.


Steve Smith was elected to the Republican County Committee in the 4th Ward of Pittston City with a total of 1 write in vote.  It was incorrectly reported by several sources that he received a whopping three votes.  This is official, right from Luzerne County itself.  The fact is that 2 people are elected from the 4th Ward in Pittston where Smith was victorious along with George C. Carmean who received 2 write-in-votes.  No one was actually named on the ballot for this post.  It appears that being elected to this position with 5 votes or less is very common.  If you look over the many voting wards in Luzerne County you will find that many people were elected to the Republican County Committee with 5 votes or less.  This means that any schlep rock can get elected in Luzerne County and believe me they do!
