*NEWSFLASH*

9 of 10 "Anonymous" comment posters ARE THE EXACT SAME PERSON, OR THE SAME 2 PEOPLE.

I really am done with this crap, but I wanted to point that out for the sake of morale. A lot of people in this city are pissed off (and rightfully so), but they're not all as hateful and angry as "Anonymous." And as much as he thinks his toxic words are helping, he's dead wrong. It turns people off and makes the city totally ignore all of us. So keep it up, you've already made one informed citizen quit.

Why would I want to be associated with either side?

When I first started Conserve & Protect it was because there was a group of people in Richardson who were being attacked and had no way of getting their voices heard in the blogosphere. I figured that C&P would allow those different thoughts and opinions to be expressed...and for a while it did.

During the campaign I felt like we were able to show a different side of some of the candidates, and shine some light into the shadows on the Coalition; it created a forum for contributors to post wonderful insight and we even had some laughs (at Schnurr's expense).

But lately things have changed, and with the way some of you anonymous commenters behave, I'm not sure I want to give you a voice any longer. We've stopped standing up for the underdog and instead become a pack of wolves.

The comments on this blog have been going down hill for a while, many pointless personal attacks have been made, some of which I have even had to delete because they were so ugly and hateful. But then last week on David's blog, the wolves went after Bill Keffler's kids. His children had posted anonymously in defense of their father. They were then cursed at, torn apart and even had their facebook pages linked to.

Seriously? This is what we're voluntarily giving our time for? To create a forum for hate and venom? Tell me again how we are any better than the Coalition? Because like I said, at this point I don't necessarily want to be associated with either side.

Musings of an idle mind.....

So over on David's blog he's posted a lot of Bill's bills, but I guess we call him 'Tex' now, which I like, even though I am not sure he's tall enough to deserve such a name, but I digress, so anyway David posted Tex's bills. Or would it be our Texas taxes that pay Tex/Bill's bills?

Anyway, one of the charges was to Rose Tattoo, which I was very disappointed to find out is just a restaurant, but that didn't stop me from imagining a Tex sized tattoo on Bill. My guess is it would look something like this, but double, plus one and maybe his wife's face as well.

LEAVE GARY SLAGEL ALONE!

Because there's a ton of frivolous spending in that bond package, so if you're going to be mad at anybody, be mad at everybody!

A great post from Richardson Resident over on the DMN back on the 11th:

"What is sad is that everyone seems to be making such a big deal about {the entry portal} issue. This is the type of debate that should take place among the Councilmembers concerning many, many more of the items listed on the proposed $66 million bond package. Yet, the Council argues over a single item and everyone treats it like there has been some type of mutiny. I encourage the Council to have this type of discussion and debate concerning ALL of the proposed items, including the following:
1. The proposed 11.778-million dollar Heights Gymnastics Center. Is now the right time for this given the current economy? This is a luxury item.
2. The proposed 1.06-million dollar Duck Creek Trail Extension that runs down Collins Road through the heart of the industrial area. Do we really need a walking trail through an industrial park right now? Really?
3. The proposed 1.155-million dollar University Trail. Do we really need another walking trail along the UTD Campus at this time? Really?
4. The proposed 4.465-million dollar Heights Park Pool. Is this the right time given the current economy? Do we REALLY need to spend over 15 Million Dollars at Heights Park at this time? Really? Again, another luxury item.
5. The proposed 4.5-million dollar Breckinridge Park Pool. Do we really need to do this right now given the current economy? Really? Again, another luxury item.
These five things constitute nearly 23-million dollars in proposed improvements for park and trail related items - luxury items. It is my opinion that now is not the time for these types of luxury items. Instead, either take them out all together or apply another 23 million to the most pressing street and drainage issues facing the city. Let us not forget what bond packages are supposed to be for - major infrastructure needs that can't be met through the general fund. NOT luxury items. If we can't pay for trails and parks with general fund money, than we shouldn't be spending that money!!!

I had to get an "account" with Mark Steger


in order to leave a comment and it made me feel dirty....kind of like a "sprinkled, iced-turd."

I never use to understand how Abrahm could watch Basketball for hours on end.....

until I saw last night's council meeting. Fast forward to Section D (Part 2 of 2) minute 20, and then hold on to your hat.

I was one beer and a bucket of chicken wings away from jumping up and hollering at the screen. (min 30 is where it gets super awesome)

Now it's my turn to do the bragging!


Our favorite local blogger David's a STAR! That's right, A STAR!!!

Last Night's work session....

I'm watching it right now. Any thoughts? Highlights I should watch for?

Name That RINO!

For those of you who aren't hip with the lingo, RINO stands for Republican In Name Only.

This particular RINO, who I've obviously disguised (ten bucks says he had wicked-lib dreads like this at one point in his life though) is only of relevance to you Collin County Richardsonites. He's a huge douche-canoe, running as a Republican but partying it up with all his other Prius driving brahs and trying to raise muney for his campaign. And yes, that is a fake doobie in his mouth.

First one to guess correctly gets a Sam Johnson bumper sticker.

My Gift To You...

Design done. That has to cut costs a little, right? Now just make the corporations pay for the rest. The residents have done their part.

Reversing The Patriarchy One Council Meeting At A Time

So last night I heard Gary and Murph got in a cat fight. That's right a cat fight....over a city entry portal. And get this- Murph won. Good on you John for standing up to the man, and while it would be much more awesome if you were a woman or black, you are not. (Oh well, can't win 'em all) So the man vs. the man. Cat-ty.

Anybody Else Think I'm A Shoe In?

click image to enlargeVery Important Detail:But why stop there? I went ahead and threw in my social security and pin number as well.

Btw, if you're really buying into this pathetic attempt to plump up the Coalition mailing list I implore you all to AT THE VERY LEAST create a bogus e-mail address before you nominate your neighbor, plumber, or favorite blogger.
