Yesterday, February 23, 2013 - The Express Times ran a story which informed us that County Executive hopeful John Callahan was ejected from a Liberty HS AAA wrestling tournament.
Ladies and Gentlemen of Northampton County, we must interject: if Mr. Callahan is excitable and abrasive in a public arena now...how calm can we expect him to be in Chambers, or in office?
|It was the ref's fault!|
Parents that get ejected from these types of school activities are ejected to show the children that the behavior displayed by the parent is inexcusable, and will not be tolerated! So that the children can learn a lesson, which hopefully will remain with them for life.
The story outlines that on his way out he (Callahan) "mentioned "rabbit ears" and wiggled his fingers on the side of his head. "Rabbit ears" refers to a referee who's distracted or swayed by coaches or fans instead of watching the action."
This is what concerns We The People. Why? Because it is the same childish behavior we all received from Ron Angle when he was in office.
Mr. Callahan goes on to excuse his behavior saying: “I voiced my displeasure I think in a very respectful way,” he said. “I think the referee was a little oversensitive."
Or, how about: you behaved like a jerk, and the referee did his job correctly!
Mr. Callahan is actually blaming the official for HIS (Callahan) childish behavior. What is horribly wrong here is that Mr. Callahan continues to be Mayor of Bethlehem. Is the Mayor of Bethlehem setting a really a good example for our youth? Who in today's world are killing students, teachers, coaches, and anyone else that gets in their way? And what about our community citizens who may say: if the Mayor can do it - so can I. We don't think so.
Mayor Callahan's behavior is part of our social problems today. Do we really need him setting any more childish examples, or displaying tantrums when he doesn't get his way in our house? NO...Don't open the door!!!
Keeping it real!
