CCR/DW 10-24-14: Bogus Baloney

TO:  CCR Tweet-less 

Here’s what you recently missed by not following
Dylan Westie  @DylanWestie1  on Twit-er.


1)  Dist.105 'strategist' Casteel bellows infamous Haig "I’m in charge" while scrubbing egg off Rodney Anderson’s face for bogus "complaint."

2)  New Big State Fountain-Dist 105 omelet: Bogus Rodney Anderson eggs,
Casteel fetid cheese served shamefully overdone on buttered character.

3)  QueenB (Irving mayor) and Rodney Anderson spotted dining on fresh
fricassee of crow at 4-Seasons plotting next bogus Dist.105 dirty trick.

MH

PostScript:  It’s official.  The "complaint" which was finally filed against Dist 105 State representative candidate, Susan Motley, by her opponent Rodney Anderson has been ruled invalid.  The Hatch Act did not apply.  Even for Tea sippers!

   (Special Note: The sleazy Anderson campaign mailers were already in early voters hands prior to the "complaint" actually being filed with the feds.)

   Of course, once the "complaint" was actually filed by Anderson’s campaign ‘strategist’ Casteel, it didn’t take the federal US Office of Special Counsel a nano second to see through the veneer of deception to determine this really must be a dirty political trick in the making.  And to think, the Anderson campaign probably spent a wad of bucks for their legal advice.

   Therefore, Motley is free to campaign and keep her job...as Anderson had also petitioned for the feds to approve her firing.  However, folks with reasonable intelligence had already determined the outcome of the "complaint"…even as the Anderson campaign sprayed their load of bogus Torofeca all over the city.

   City hazmat crews will have ‘beautiful downtown Irving’ back in pristine shape by the end of the week.

     Many potential early voters in Irving viewed this campaign trickery by Anderson for what it was: Bogus and a cheap-shot-attempt to undermine not only an opponent, but the entire political process.  Apparently, Tea sippers have their own set of campaign schemes which cast truthfulness, honesty and character into the dirty trick swamp.

   One has to wonder if Anderson will pull all the ads, mailers and other means of dissemination for this bogus claim from his campaign.  If he doesn’t, then voters will truly know the measure of the man.

   What’s next?  QueenB VD and Anderson will have to develop another strategy in their attempt to ply on the uninformed serfs and peons of her realm.  

   Time is running short, but with two political operatives of their calibre, one has to believe they can "hatch" some new dirty trick to con voters before election day, November 4, 2014.

CCR/DW 10-22-14: Of Weasels and Censorship?

TO:  CCR Tweet-less 

Here’s what you recently missed by not following
Dylan Westie  @DylanWestie1  on Twit-er.

Did QueenB (Irving mayor) censor (unless our eyes failed) two factual DMN articles on KIA as not favorable to her Tea Party pick Rodney Anderson?!

MH

PostScript:  This whole District 105 campaign for Irving’s State representative seems to grow stranger by the day.  In addition to the Rodney Anderson campaign attempting bury their opponent, Susan Motley, with legal-lathering and blathering to force her out of the race, this group of political misfits even wants to extract an additional pint of blood…and have her fired from her job.  This is really a sad day for political campaigning in ‘beautiful downtown Irving.’

   Wow!  Welcome to the new age of Tea Party hardball politics…say or do anything to con a vote from unsuspecting citizens.

   Of course, the political "strategist" (weasel word for chief gopher and cooker of dirty trick recipes) of the Anderson campaign spun a tale as to why the feds had not seen the supposed legal complaint filed against Motley.  The flimsy rationale registered was: the elephant sat on the paper work a "clerical error" on the feds side of the fence. (Full detail in articles noted below, but promise not to snicker at the flaky excuse.)

   Frankly, it would have been more believable had the Anderson’s campaign dog peed on the paperwork and they were just waiting for it to dry before faxing.  But then, wouldn’t one assume a matter of this importance (and factual?) have demanded a vigorous follow up by the campaign "strategist" to ensure the complaint had been filed and received properly?  After all, the campaign was wanting this 11th hour dirty trick to sway early voters without their opponent having ample time to assure voters the complaint was false, fictitious, or designed as a political mailing for dispersion and fermenting of extreme doubt on Motley’s character.  

   And wouldn’t the "complaint" certainly be a good talking point and provide for loads of Torofeca spreading by Anderson in the waining days of the campaign?

   With QueenB VDs Flying Harpies registering and posting on the KIA blog everything — from how to develop loving relationships with CAIR to browbeating an Irving expat loose-wing nut — one would think this blog of ‘fair and balanced’ expression of opinions would at least have posted DMN articles concerning an activity crucial to the city.  The District 105 State representative will, after all, have Irving as a home base.

   After reviewing the KIA blog on two different days, neither of two DMN articles related to the Rodney Anderson complaint filed against Susan Motley was found.  Granted, our feeble eyesight isn’t what it use to be, but two articles and neither one posted for KIA followers?  Is there a new computer virus that, like Pac Man, devours unfavorable articles for the KIA blog chieftains?

   Good grief, the blog has recently posted DMN articles regarding the expansion of Champion Trail, LOWV candidates forum, and the creeping Common Core curriculum in Texas.  All of those, you will note, deal with Irving!  But the articles for the District 105 political swamp pit created in Irving by Rodney Anderson…not there!

   Staff of the CCR doesn’t run the KIA blog (nor would we want to) and we would always support their efforts to provide opinions…just as CCR reports attempt to do.  However, should they claim they are Keeping Irving Accountable if major news reports, for readers to gather all the information possible before going to the polls, are not available?

   Another significant ‘conspiracy theory’ for the articles not being posted on KIA is, perhaps, QueenB VD who is the head cheerleader for the Rodney Anderson campaign in Irving has dictated to her Mother Superior of Flying Harpies that the articles being on KIA would be detrimental to the Anderson campaign and shouldn’t be posted…especially if the premise of the Anderson complaint is not valid.  In this case, the queen’s rationale would align with Anderson…say or do anything to get a vote and don’t be pestered with honesty, accuracy or character.

   Well, staff of the CCR is not proud!  (Opinionated, yes.)  

   Below, you will find the two DMN articles which should spike your interest, cause you to question a politicos actions and maybe even provide a basis as to why so many voters are disgusted with politicos who should be responsible for representing THEIR interest…not succumbing to pandering and underhanded measures of this nature to sate their egos. 

   And for those not aware or knowledgeable, staff of the CCR drinks conservative coffee…not Tea.

CCR/DW 10-20-14: Drunken Tweets

TO:  CCR Tweet-less 

Here’s what you recently missed by not following
Dylan Westie  @DylanWestie1  on Twit-er.

(1)
@JudgeClayJ looking freshly embalmed is really the most "ferocious & scariest (political) animal on the planet." Not Dallas County middle schoolers!
(2)
Has @RodneyAnderson drinking bitter Tea just scraped the bottom of the political dirty trick barrel? See: http://www.dallasnews.com/news/politics/headlines/20141019-federal-hatch-act-complaint-surfaces-in-state-house-race.ece … How shallow!
(3)
Will QueenBs (Irving mayor) sipping Tea endorsement of Rodney Anderson be an albatross or a new Pet Rock for her collection? His choice!
(4)
DMN endorses Susan Motley for state rep. QueenB (Irving mayor) sipping Tea endorses Rodney Anderson.  Who you ‘gonna believe? CCR likes DMN 

MH

PostScript:  Staff of the CCR had really planned to let the MacBook cool off this week.  This was due to city hazmat teams having to clean all the Torofeca flung by QueenBs Pet Rock, LaMorgese, which splattered on all the bloggers on FaceBook and the Internet universe.  This was as a result of his blockheaded anti-ARK vote-rationalization screed on FaceBook.

   However, our desired respite was unattainable…just as the clean up by the city’s hazmat crews was Herculean.

   The problem: Dylan Westie, Executive Editor and Part-time Wordsmith for the CCR, discovered the secret stash of craft brews.  This added to our not being able to take time off.  The above represents the four tweets he managed to send before we were able to tug the bottle of  Velvet Hammer - Imperial Red Ale (his fifth one) out of his paws.  As he sometimes will post in cryptic script, readers deserve a bit more detail before sharing these ramblings with their friends or associates.  So, we’ll translate his bacchanalian thoughts into Cajun verbiage for better understanding.  Alors c’est bien compris?

Tweet (1): Would someone buy a baby Binky® and stuff it in County Judge Clay Jenkin’s mouth?  If anyone can turn a serious press situation into a political rally coupled with misguided information (better than even VP Joe Biden), he can.  And like VP Biden, Jenkins is going to require mouth surgery to expand his jaws for his size 14-foot he keeps sticking in his mouth.  To infer all middle school kids in Dallas County, as he did, were the "ferocious and scariest animals on the planet" was not only utterly dumb (no polite word available in Thesaurus and stupid was too kind) and insensitive, but causes one to wonder if he shouldn’t be placed in voter-contagious containment.  Does he actually believe all middle school kids are animals and that he knows how to run a school district better than those charged to do so?  Really, Clay?  Surely, folks must be wondering how he could be re-elected and run county government with his mouth flapping so incoherently.

Tweet (2), (3) & (4):  Here we are just two weeks before the November elections —with early voting starting today — and guess what: It’s mud shoveling time for some politicos who do not want to address real issues.  Instead, they dig in the pit of political slime to sling at their opponents.

   Some politicos cannot leave ordinary citizens alone to decide whom they will support.  The politico believes it is their god given right to pander for votes, create smoke and mirror issues, flood mailboxes with tripe even hogs would dismiss…all to pump up their egos and tear down their opponents.  Issues, to them, are not relevant in current day elections.  Their trick to being elected is to dig as deep as possible in the political dirty trick barrel and attempt to cast doubt and confuse voters.
   Question: If Rodney Anderson truly believed the Hatch Act* was such a critical issue with his opponent, why wasn’t this "discovered" or presented at the start of the election cycle?  Surely, a highly paid staff of researchers, DC attorneys and other political pimps were aware of his opponents work history.  And to utilize this claim in a political brochure with a ‘question mark’ only indicates the spreader of this dubious dirt wants to merely place a bit of doubt in voter’s minds.  Without the ‘question mark,’ then voters would recognize this as a mere shabby attempt to discredit the individual with concrete assurances.

   While staff of the CCR sometimes attempts to be neutral in Irving State races (snicker), we have to finally register our thoughts on the District 105 State Representative race.  And when the Torofeca is being spread so thick in the city, then its time to opine.

   We do not know Susan Motley, but from what we have observed, she has run a clean, positive campaign…which all politicos should attempt to do.  And to defend an 11th hour bomb blast from Rodney Anderson, which may have little creditability, is just plain politically disgusting.

   But then, this seems to be the modus operandi of many extreme Tea Party sippers…say or do anything to get elected.  Getting elected is the ticket and forget about character, honesty and doing what is right.

   To some, it seems as if many Texas Tea Party candidates have morphed into a religious jihad of extremism.  And sadly, if you do not agree with them, then you will be considered an outcast.  

   And this, dear reader, is why so many individuals (normal conservatives for sure) are turned off with politics and politicos.  Couple this with politicos favorability ratings being lower than a used car salesman and citizens are severely shortchanged with their representatives.

   The perpetrators of late-hour political skullduggery, in a campaign, only confirms politics is a sleazy business.  When the primary purpose is to get elected at any cost, then the politicos personal agenda has a priority over citizen needs and desires.  And this is not what the political process should be providing.

   Since staff of the CCR has not endorsed either candidate in the District 105 race, we’ll leave you with this thought.  The Dallas Morning News has endorsed Susan Motley.  QueenB VD is the head Irving cheerleader for Rodney Anderson.  Do you really require more information than that to understand the true depth this election and representation could have on Irving?  Is Irving actually large enough to handle two super egos of brashness and arrogance?

   And if asked, staff of the CCR (and a sober Dylan Westie) will affirm, we hope, the DMN proves accurate with their endorsement in this instance!

CCR/DW 10-19-14: "Fact" Spinning

TO:  CCR Tweet-less 

Here’s what you recently missed by not following
Dylan Westie  @DylanWestie1  on Twit-er.

PetRock @bradlamorgese can't admit queen's dictated anti-ARK vote goes from inane to insane on blog posting. See controversialcommittee.blogspot.com info


MH

PostScript:  While CCR reports, with a tinge of bias, and the non-biased reporting(1) of the DMN appeared to cover just about ever angle in the saga of QueenB VD dictating Pet Rocks to vote against the recent ARK resolution, staff of the CCR believed the topic had been thoroughly covered.

   This was foolish thinking.  Pet Rock LaMorgese just had to dust off his spin manual and illegally remove the catalytic Torofeca-filter on his computer to spew a lengthy screed on a social media site (FaceBook: KIA blog,10-11-14) for good measure.(2)

   Never has one council member thrown such a load of Torofeca into the fan than PR-LaMorgese attempting to sway public opinion for his non-mea culpa for his wrongheaded vote.

   If the vote by QueenB VD and the pet Rocks (LaMorgese, Farris, Spink and Ward) had not been so serious, PR-LaMorgese’s failed attempt at justifying his vote on the blog site would actually be comical.  But this really isn’t a laughing matter when average citizens completely understood what four city council members couldn’t comprehend with the issue before them.

   PR-LaMorgese only needed to understand one word in the ARK agenda item to fathom the proper course of action to take.  This word was Resolution.  And the resolution on the agenda, as written and explained ad infinitum by professionals, was rather simple.  The resolution clearly reflected the city’s assurances to ARK the city would not be able to meet the anticipated time, as noted in the contractual agreement with ARK, for a hotel on the Convention Center site by 2017. PERIOD!  NO MORE!  NO LESS!

   The resolution had nothing (for emphasis: NOTHING) to do with: number of possible rooms in a boutique hotel; number of parking spaces for a boutique hotel; possible profit ARK might make if a hotel was built; or requesting any master plan changes for the Entertainment Center.  IF ARK even decided to build a boutique hotel, these issues would have to be brought back to the council for consideration and approval.  And the added attraction to this would be the project being totally funded by ARK.  No city funding required!  Zilch!

   The anti-ARK vote by QueenB VD and Pet Rocks also places the State hotel sales tax rebates in jeopardy for the entire Entertainment Center.  Now, this is serious business when a petty personal agenda is enacted to the detriment of the city and its citizens. 

   All of the anti-ARK issues were apparently fabricated, espoused and dictated by the queen to the Pet Rocks to have them align with her vindictive and personal agenda against ARK…and the Entertainment Center in general.  Her history for this PPP-attitude probably traces back to her Sugar Daddy-String Pulling handlers wanting only their single source selection to develop this city project. 

   And to think PR-LaMorgese believed this simple resolution required PowerPoint presentations, legal contractual documents or any other "finding of facts" to be considered is not only preposterous, but verges on being slow-witted with what was actually before him.

   Perhaps, PR-LaMorgese was again too busy tweeting about "budget beards" and did not hear the professional staff, on more than one occasion, present the time line for why the city’s Convention Center hotel would not be on the ground and up and running by 2017.  Even with poor hearing, staff of the CCR heard this reiterated in the work session and council meeting at least three times.

   The ARK agenda resolution was only about: Stating to ARK what city professionals knew to be an upcoming reality of development affairs…no city hotel on the Convention Center property by 2017.  Again, period with no superfluous discussions required!  

   (Frankly, staff of the CCR does not use an Ouija board, but it appears PR-Spink might to be able to state assurances a hotel could be in place by 2017.  Why didn’t PR-LaMorgese ask PR-Spink for his "finding of facts" or where his PowerPoint presentation was to make a counter claim to city professionals?  Did PR-Spink have official documents that were not shared with the council?)

   Pure and simple, the vote by PR-LaMorgese was wrong for a developer wanting to do businesses with the city.  The vote was wrong for blindly following the queen’s dictates.  And basically, the vote was wrong for the inane spin attempting to justify the queen’s vendetta against ARK specifically…and the Entertainment Center via his social media posting.

   Of course, it would be extremely difficult for PR-LaMorgese to admit he was merely following a queenly dictate instead of voting for the betterment of the city.  One even has to wonder if the queen scripted his ‘talking points’ for his blog posting!

   While PR-LaMorgese penned his epistle to a sympathetic crowd of mead-spiked Flying Harpies on the FaceBook blog, he did spare total embarrassment by not having this screed sent to the DMN as a "Letter to the Editor."  Had he done this, the entire metroplex would have chuckled at his feeble attempt to justify the unjustifiable.

   Additionally, has PR-LaMorgese forgotten all the actual "fact finding" of what a recent tax rate decrease vote accomplished at the queen’s direction?  Does he not remember the ‘facts’ that his vote would not actually reduce homeowners property taxes, and the $900,000K cut from the budget would imperil public safety via not providing what the Irving Fire Department needed and required?  Is "fact finding" only important to PR-LaMorgese when it is convenient and agrees with his voting as dictated by the queen?  Just when does PR-LaMorgese heed the advice of professionals who certainly know more about running a city then he might?  

   Sorry, PR-LaMorgese, your fabricated spin and verbose verbiage on social media failed the vote-justification test.  A simple explanation of "the queen made me do it" would have been sufficient and honest.  But then, this couldn’t be accomplished without legally-lathering up blog readers for a cup of tea and sympathy.

   Finally, PR-LaMorgese, it is not the number of words one uses to defend an issue, but rather the quality and accuracy of those words as they specifically relate to the reality of the problem under consideration.  

   And if, or should ARK return to the council with a boutique hotel proposal, citizens will anxiously tune in to see if PR-LaMorgese has completed rehab for independent thinking and voting for the best interest of the city this time around.

   Okay, PR-LaMorgese, you may now resume your inane tweeting during important city council meetings.

CCR/DW 10-14-14: Award Goes To...

TO:  CCR Tweet-less 

Here’s what you recently missed by not following
Dylan Westie  @DylanWestie1  on Twit-er.

QueenB (Irving mayor) receives her first ever prestigious award. For details see 10-14-14 report at controversialcommittee.blogspot.com. Pet Rocks elated

MH

PostScript:  Readers, especially those who write in crayon, always receive an immediate response from staff of the CCR.  We hear you! (And some don’t think we have a heart…pshaw.) 

   And to meet a recent gadfly-critic’s concern, from the reading challenged bleachers, this entire report is dedicated to the wonderful achievements QueenB VD has invested in the city since her initial coronation. (Four years and…oh god, still counting.)

   While some might consider her achievements less than worthy, staff of the CCR believes them to be as high up on the "meme" shelf as Tommy Gonzalez’s (former city manager) personal goal of achieving the Malcolm Baldrige award.  And we all know how this award totally changed the direction of Irving and moved the city into being a smooth operating machine.  

   Just think of how Irving’s past, during the realm of QueenB VD, will be recorded and the changes she instituted for citizens when her legacy is written.

   Sparing no expense, staff of the CCR commissioned a statuette to be molded that will honor and symbolize QueenB VDs grandest achievements.  The award will be know as the CCRs Frank "I Did It My Way" Award and modeled after the Rat Pack crooner’s self-absorbed tune of personal praise.  This award will also allow the queen’s loyal subjects to think of her every time the song is played on the radio or TV.

   Back to the important issue at hand: QueenB VDs momentous legacy.  Here are just three of the significant items the queen has planted in the Irving political landscape.  We should all be so proud:

Tin Foil Hat 2.01:  This new cutting edge technological headwear, while primarily designated for Pet Rocks (LaMorgese, Farris, Spink and Ward), will also be provided to the Mother Superior of Flying Harpies, single source developers, Sugar Daddy-String Pullers, Tea Party cronies and spiked-mead posters on the KIA FaceBook blog.  The beauty of the advanced tin foil chapeau is: QueenB VD will be able to instantly communicate demands, voting instructions and spin talking points to each wearer without having to use her iPhone or rely on any telecommunication tower for text messaging during meetings.  The communications from the queen will be direct, untraceable and one way.  In essence, the queen does not have to bother with hearing any responses, negative thoughts or whining from those wearing the tin foil hats.  How cool is that?  (Side note: The queen will also have the ability to send a slight electrical charge to the wearer if they should step out of line or say something inappropriate.)

ATM Voting:  Realizing there seems to be a bit of unrest with some of QueenB VDs recent pronouncements, votes and handling of issues before the council, the queen has taken on-line voting to a new level.  While voting in the city is beyond being anemic, with regards to the number that actually participates in process, the queen has instituted an ATM/Debit card system for the next city election…to ensure her Pet Rocks do well at the polls.  Citizens will be provided with a QueenB debit card upon enter a polling station.  The card will be inserted into the electronic voting pod and if voting for the individuals the queen has chosen, the card will register $25.00 on the voter’s new debit card.  This method of vote buying beats the old system of ‘walking money’ used by scurrilous ward bosses.  The QueenB debit card also guarantees the queen’s picks, or the card is not validated.  This method of ‘voter encouragement’ will also be cheaper the $500K+ the queen spent on her last campaign.  Additionally, ‘frequent voters’ in any election will receive bonus points toward an amazing array of gifts.

BVD Vanity Plates:  What better way to show support, allegiance and fealty to the queen and Irving than to be awarded a personalized QueenB VD vanity license plate.  These plates are special enticements for all serf/peon achievements which demonstrate genuine obedience to the queen.  The license plate allows everyone in the realm to recognize how the queen appreciates their efforts, blind-less dedication and mindlessly subscribing to her dictates.  
   While driving around town, readers may have noticed some of the plates already in use.  To assist in the recognition of these honored recipients, here is a short list: BVD1 (the queen, of course), BVD2 (LaMorgese), BVD3 (Farris), BVD4 (Spink), BVD5 (Ward), BVD6 (Mother Superior of Flying Harpies), BVD7 (Simon) and BVD8 (Ellis).  Remember, the key to being considered and obtaining a BVD vanity plate is to work hard spinning the queen’s egotistical message, bow often and never address or disturb the queen when she is involved in a photo op.

   While staff of the CCR is still in the research mode for any other QueenB VD achievements, the above alone qualifies her to be the first (and hopefully only) recipient of the CCRs Frank "I Did It My Way" Award.  Really, can you think of any other deserving Irving politico who could match the efforts of QueenB VD to gain this recognition? 

(This report was inspired by a wacky CCR reader.)

CCR/DW 10-14-14: Voting ID Required

TO:  CCR Tweet-less 

Here’s what you recently missed by not following
Dylan Westie  @DylanWestie1  on Twit-er.

Radical idea: Bring the ARK boutique back to council for re-vote to see if any Pet Rocks will atone for QueenBs (Irving mayor) misdirection!

MH

PostScript:  Just think!  With all the negative comments and publicity floating around as to how QueenB VD led the Pet Rocks astray to satisfy her personal agenda of being anti-ARK, do you think any of the Pet Rocks would like to atone for their misdirected vote and set the record straight for the betterment of the city?  Sounds like a capital idea to staff of the CCR.

   To do so, three council members could request the ARK boutique hotel proposal be placed on the next city council agenda.  The queen could not prevent this item from coming back to the council for renewed consideration and a vote.

   If the item was put before the council again, the question becomes: Would any of the Pet Rocks actually consider changing their vote, or do they want the total embarrassment of their initial vote to stand as is?  Their previous vote was an embarrassment to the city, business community and voters…and probably had Dallas politicos chucking at Irving’s ineptitude.

   Knowing the decision to change their vote might cause them to fear being thrown into the queen’s Tower of Obedience, or not being invited to participate in a photo op with her, staff of the CCR would like to assist in the reconsideration of their voting again.

   Only one Pet Rock changing their vote will shift the tide and put Irving back on a course of doing what is right for citizens and businesses calling the city home.  

   Here are some gentle clues to assist the misled Pet Rocks:

Pet Rock LaMorgese:  After seeking any necessary nose procedures, purchasing a copy of "Business Microeconomics for Dummies" to assist in increasing his learning curve in understanding businesses do operate to make a profit.  Those businesses failing to make a profit will no longer be in business.  Hopefully, this isn’t too difficult for him to understand after reading the book, but then….. 

Pet Rock Spink:  Isn’t it time for him to discard his Ouija board and crystal ball for predicting upcoming development time lines when professionals, using real data, have discussed and related the reality of the ARK proposal?  The RFPs, for seeking a new Convention Center hotel developer, are being processed.  Hopefully, he is not attempting to fall into the single source developer pit like QueenB and forego the city conducting its business as it should…open, transparent and crony-less for any personally known developers.

Pet Rock Farris:  We searched and consulted with professionals, but to no avail.  Some folks are just lost, helpless and beyond reach.  This could fall into the category of voters not getting what they were promised…and it wasn’t a court jester for the queen.

Pet Rock Ward:  While following the queen’s dictates, his anti-ARK vote could have exponentially decreased the number of support votes — that do not represent a conflict of interest — for any Whistle Stop proposal when it comes before the council.  While council voting is not generally tete-a-tete, it is know most council members do have long memories and recall past actions and votes of their fellow members.  The ARK vote, similar to a radioisotope, will have the same half-life as the tax reduction vote the queen dictated for the Pet Rocks.

   CCR readers should understand that bringing the ARK boutique hotel proposal back for a re-vote is not to embarrass the Pet Rocks.  After all, they did this to themselves, the city and businesses on their first vote.  However, this would truly be a golden opportunity for them to demonstrate they are wanting to serve citizens of the city,,,and not the queen’s vindictive and egotistical agenda. 

   Is this really too difficult to understand?  Which is fundamentally more important: The queen’s ego or the betterment of the city?

   And while the consideration is floating around to consider if a re-vote would occur, the Pet Rocks should also remember how enthusiastic they were when they recently approved another boutique hotel near the city owned Entertainment Center property.  And this boutique hotel will not be able to assist the city in qualifying for the State sales tax rebate. 

   If the Pet Rocks have forgotten, the State sales tax rebate is one of the critical elements to ensure the success of the entire ICVB, Entertainment Center and Convention Center hotel development.

   Finally, one of the more salient points is if ARK should decide to build a boutique hotel, no city funding would be required.  What better reason is there to support this public-private partnership?  Pet Rocks should remember, ARK is the city’s partner, not their crutch to satisfy personal agendas.  Especially, those personal agendas which seem to be contrary to the city’s benefit.

   Want to do something good for the city?  Contact one of the non-Pet Rocks and request the ARK boutique hotel proposal be placed on the next council agenda.  They have already voted once for the city’s betterment and probably wouldn’t mind doing so again.  Let them know your thoughts.

CCR/DW 10-13-14: Straw Man Rehab

TO:  CCR Tweet-less:

Here’s what you recently missed by not following: 
Dylan Westie   @DylanWestie1  on Twit-er.

We hear: Disgruntled spiked-mead sippers of QueenB (Irving mayor) entering rehab to be reborn voters due to her anti-ARK vindictive charade.

MH

PostScript: Sometimes, the straw is used just to slap the camel in the face instead of breaking its back.  

   And QueenB VD recently swatted the city, interested citizens, business community, and some supporters across the face with a handful of coarse straw.  This swatting, which should leave prominent whelps on future voter’s faces, was just her way of saying: "It’s my party and I didn’t invite ARK."

   The QueenB slap fest of voters, citizens and businesses began as she utilized her Straw Man faulty logic to publicly browbeat a corporate concern, ARK, that is developing the Entertainment Center for the city.  

   After the disastrous city council vote (5-4 to kill the resolution), led by QueenB VD who marshaled her Pet Rocks to scuttle the ARK boutique proposal, some previously staunch supports of the queen finally decided…enough is enough.  

   Her perceived PPP (Political Pettiness Personified) condition coupled with an ego that wouldn’t even fit in AT&T Stadium (JerryWorld Arena) has caused some staunch supporters to re-evaluate their allegiance to this pseudo-monarchy of narcissistic endeavors. 

   Based on e-mails and conversations, the queen’s latest anti-ARK rampage leaves only one question to address: Why has it taken so long for some individuals to figure out the queen isn’t leading the city, but managing to bring it down?  And in her mind, this might even be okay…if there is a photo op involved.

   The publicity, e-mails and blog postings resulting from QueenB VD leading her Pet Rocks (LaMorgese, Farris, Spink and Ward) to deny the ARK resolution demonstrates ordinary citizens understood the issue better than the queen and Pet Rocks.

   It is certainly apparently the ARK Entertainment Center personnel now realize what many citizens have noted for the past four years: The queen only serves the queen…unless, of course, her sugar-daddy-string pullers (Simon and Ellis) dictate otherwise.  In this instance, there probably was a melding of these three forces to badly skew rational thinking into a political quagmire…which will haunt the city indefinitely.

   Perhaps, the most cognizant and profound pronouncement to capture the essence of QueenB VDs faulty blathering and logic on the ARK boutique hotel proposal was:
   
ARK development partner, Noah Lazes, to DMN (10-11-14) reporter Avi Selk:  
"This is Beth continuing to push an agenda that was clearly not accurate," Lazes said. "It’s unfortunate that a personal agenda and a personal vendetta is influence political decisons.” *

   Fortunately, ARK has a milder manner and a kinder grammatical disposition than staff of the CCR.   
   Knowing the queen was leading the charge and probably acting in accordance with her handler’s desires, the Pet Rocks must also share the shame and blame for this anti-business, anti-Irving and anti-logical vote.  After all, where were their brain synapses during the vetting of this issue?  

   (That’s right, Pet Rocks do not have cranial gray matter in their aphanitic composition.)  

   As QueenB VD, her handlers, Tea Party sippers, and Flying Harpies plot her next political move (replace Kenny Marchant in the US Congress?), she will have free time on hand after flushing Irving down the porcelain latrine.  Her ability to forego sound and professional advice, which would benefit the city, would fit right in with the DC crowd.

   Who knows?  Even her Washington ‘tour guide,’ Rep. Pete Sessions, might be onboard for the queen to set up shop in DC.  With as screwed up as Congress seems to be regarding the representation of citizens, QueenB VD just might be their new poster child for screwing-up.

   After all, when one reviews the queen’s record of non-accomplishment, it would not be a leap to the Washington political scene for her.  Rather, she could hop, skip and jump into a new arena of serving special interest concerns, single source developers and kowtowing to her two primary handlers.

   Of course, this would be a Win-Lose situation for the city.  Irving Wins with her departure and the country Loses with her arrival.
