They spoke during the public input on how disappointed they were about how the ban was killed (twice) and they really didn’t know why (because they didn’t show up and listen) and (probably didn’t know it was killed twice).
Let me let you folks in on a little secret, there is this thing called the initiative and referendum process, give it a shot. You all seem like smart folks. Bet you can pull it off. Of course, it would require you to climb off your pedestals.
I often notice that these ‘very special people’ only show up when they ‘want’ something. We will get to that in a moment(s).
Some of these very ‘special’ moments;
â€¢ Former Mayor Knobe showed up (he also got a couple of shout outs from Hizzoner and so did SHS (remember the Blue Dog that got booted out of Congress from a big Mitchell-Hair hick?).
Rick started out by complimenting, then cutting down the council (because they had the bravery to shoo away the thumbsuckers). Knobe points out that he NEVER watched the meeting that the 2nd reading was killed at.
So you are bitching about what? Not being able to access SIRE? (well I will take your side on that one, it is F’ing mess).
Let me fill you in, I spoke out, THE ONLY CITIZEN WHO SPOKE THAT NIGHT! Maybe you should have shown up?
â€¢ Another dude came up and encouraged them to light a candle. That candle has been lit, and blown out several times. Time to donate that melted candle to Goodwill.
â€¢ A former judge talked about football fields and time, not sure what he said, but he seemed nice and grandfatherly.
â€¢ Who let Sandy Jerstad out of the house? Anyway, she brought up the ‘children’. How touching. She never mentioned looking in a rear view mirror while backing up in a parking lot (while NOT texting of course).
â€¢ SHS came in full regalia telling us that (her) corporate policy doesn’t allow this activity, yet the company she works for takes millions from the city for landscaping on the river then turns around and lays off dozens of employees. Thanks SHS. I have a feeling the layoffs at your company has affected more lives negatively then Jane the teenager talking on her phone while (attempting to drive). In fact, maybe we should be supporting an ordinance that doesn’t allow local corporations to layoff people after getting corporate welfare for landscaping? Stupid me, that would hamper free enterprise, but hampering liberty? Who cares!
â€¢ Some guy blabbered about saving lives. Yeah, Yeah, Yeah. He said that people ‘like to do it’ referring that people enjoy talking on the phone while driving. Not the case at all. I would prefer not to talk while I am driving. Really I would.
Like I said before, they missed the train, and apparently the memo was missed to. Choo! Choo!
