Yes, largest government in the history of of country over the past 8 years and not a peep about big government, and then.... Almost embarassing somebody from that side would bring it up.
Back on topic, anyone ever gone to the Wine Fest on Art Hill? Seems weird they would charge when we have the wineries during October for free.
