CCR 09-03-15 Voter Remorse?

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

Dylan Westie: "If I Had Been Elected Mayor… 

…Irving Would Be In Better Shape Today!"

   While Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR, is generally not one to dwell in the past, he did have an astute observation concerning his failed attempt, caused by bureaucratic red tape and canine discrimination, to become mayor of the City of Irving in 2014.

   Even though he had a plurality of best wishes during the campaign cycle, the following represents how Dylan perceives things might have been handled differently had he been elected.  With Dylan at the helm, citizens (not cronies) would have been first in line for all considerations, and the city council might not have been as divisive and dysfunctional as reflected in the current regime under QueenB VD.

   Dylan’s plan of action and priorities would have included: 

Irving Entertainment Center: Not only would ARK have completed the Entertainment Center, but Willie Nelson would be playing a Labor Day concert raising funds to speed the elimination of NPD (Narcissistic Personality Disorder).   Willie has been a long time supporter of the effort to cure this disorder, as he has seen tragic cases in local governments around the USA.  However, he wanted his concert to be in Irving for this fund raising effort.  His remarks on finding the cure for NPD were: "Irving, more than any city I have ever visited, has an acute problem.  If not treated, the disorder will rapidly spread to those who associate with a primary carrier.  Initial symptoms to look for in affected individuals are signs of the person being aloof, haughty and dismissive."1
   ( Is it starting to smell like ARK is ordering Pizza Inn  pizzas  ambulance chasers after the last city council work session?)

Byron Nelson Golf Tournament:  Poor Byron.  He loved Irving so much.  He is probably in purgatory, stuck in a sand trap with his wedge, wondering why Irving didn’t convince the Dallas Salesmanship Club not to uproot what had been a treasured tournament in the city for so many years.  Not only would Dylan have managed to extend the contractual agreement until 2035 with the group, but he would have eliminated any QueenB VD mayoral suite at the Four Seasons Resort.  Really, should a tennis addict, who wants to construct a tennis center on the old Texas Stadium site, be availed benefits at a golf tournament?

Non-Partisan Politics:  Even though Dylan does indulge, by occasionally eating red meat, he would not have started a crusade of blog slayings and verbal bullying against non-believing Red Meat TEA-carnivores.  He certainly would not have engaged in the proselytization of good citizens by trying to convert them into low information thinkers.  Never in the city’s history has the Irving City council been bombarded with pimping national political issues as it has under QueenB VD.  Irving elected officials are supposed to be political party neutral and do the business of the city…not that of a national political party.  The issues escalated, by QueenB VDs fact fabrications, to the point she had to call Irving’s State representatives,2 also Red Meat TEA-carnivores, in an attempt to defend all the fabrication of facts blathered during her photo op/speaking tour engagements for TEA-carnivore gatherings.   

Enforced Animal Control:  While Irving has a great and caring animal shelter which does tremendous work to see all animals are adopted with forever homes, recently — like kudzu — a breed of dangerous animals has been allowed to proliferate in the city.  At the insistence of QueenB VD, Flying Harpies were illegally brought into the city to nest in a cave, provided by the queen, in Hackberry Creek.  And yes, her flock of Flying Harpies are attempting to control the political discussions with rants, bullying, obnoxious FaceBook postings, and a host of phobias…only found listed in the little Red Meat TEA-carnivore Red Book.  The fang bites, talon slashes, belittling and high pitch squealing-whines of these flying monsters would be comical if the harpies were not so transparent when babbling the talking points as dictated by the QueenB VD. 

Falling Dallas Star:  Do you really miss Jerry Jones?  Or do you just miss his Trump-like ability to size up deals and make decisions.  Knowing Jones is an animal lover, Dylan would have had an inside tract on managing to keep the Dallas Cowboys and their training facility in Irving.  After all, Dylan can wag his tail better than a Cowboys cheerleader…something Jones could certainly appreciate.  When a new deal was finalized, Jones would even consider a new cheer for the Boys…"Who dat dog!"

Crony Conflicts and Ethics:  Since Dylan doesn’t believe in feeding in the public trough, he would ensure the city’s "conflict of interest" ordinances would be upheld and enforced…especially for those who donate to council campaigns as a means of greasing the skids for approval of their projects.  There must be something seriously wrong with QueenB VDs "revised" ethics ordinance when the city council has to waive conflicts of interest at a regularly scheduled meetings.  Seriously, it is either a conflict of interest or it isn’t a conflict of interest.  But then, maybe QueenB VD uses the old Clinton definition of "it depends on what the meaning of the word 'is' is."  

Bright Light on "Dark Money":  Believing all politics should be played on top of the table, Dylan never would have allowed the "secret" financing of political activities and chicanery in the city.  QueenB VD with the assistance and control of her primary Sugar Daddy handler and contributor has sunk to a new low when it comes to funds being spent on achieving her personal political aspirations.  The "dark money" funds recently initiated by the queen are so secret one of the local directors (Mapes) of the Irving Opportunity Council (which might be the ‘kidneys’ for the real money dogs) doesn’t even know he is a director and responsible for all those political shell tricks.  The political corruption "dark money" could generate in Irving will probably scar the city for years to come.  And this is why Dylan didn’t accept any contributions from ‘bag men,’ Sugar Daddy handlers, or any other citizens during his campaign

Memorial Koi Pond:  When the queen’s Pet Rocks (Ward, Riddle, Farris and LaMorgese) retire, decide not to run for re-election, or maybe forced out of office via a recall election, what better way to commemorate their lack of service to the citizens of the city than a one acre Koi pond in front of city hall.  The Pet Rocks will form and serve as the pond foundation bed.  Citizens will enjoy watching the koi do what koi do as a reminder of the Pet Rocks…eating, burping, slurping, and making those strange bubbles for other unmentionable activities. 

South Irving Re-birth:  Dylan’s first step in the redevelopment of the Historical District would have been to create a bonfire and have a city-wide wiener roast with the, at least, sixty-three "studies," already filed at city hall describing what to do with south Irving.  How about this for a workable plan: A relaxing of restrictions on developers; development of a recreational center to complement the Senior Citizens Center; granting Economic Development funds to those actually needing the assistance who are not cronies of the queen; construction of lofts by the TXMM station; and view development of the southern portion of the city with the same fervor as often exhibited with the south’s northern neighbors.  And yes, a PetSmart would be a required development for any south Irving plan. 

I Scream, You Scream:  There is no doubt that had Dylan been elected mayor, Blue Bell ice cream would have selected Irving to launch their re-distribution of products when the plants started production.  In pre-election secret negotiations with Blue Bell, Dylan was assured his white fluffy fur would look better on a gallon container of The Great Divide, a combination of Homemade Vanilla and Dutch chocolate, when compared to a mane flipping photo of QueenB VD.

   Without donning rose colored glasses, don’t you believe the leadership QueenB VD has exhibited, to citizens of the city, pales in comparison to what might have occurred had Dylan been elected mayor of Irving?

   After all, there are no current records of an aloof, haughty or dismissive Westie running around ‘beautiful downtown Irving.’

CCR Chuckles - State Reps.

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

(The following was only sent to the Chuckles Brigade of the CCR and not the entire mailing list.)

TO:  Chuckles Brigade—

   When Irving returns from the Dark Age of political malfeasance, would you give staff of the CCR a wake up call?

   First, the city has a mayor (QueenB VD) cavorting all over the North Texas area spreading fabricated facts about what is happening in our city.  You should know, her speaking tours are mainly to Red Meat TEA-carnivores always looking for a straw dog to kick or beat.

   When called out by the Dallas Morning News in an article, Op/Ed piece and by one of the news’ noted columnist as fabricating her facts, QueenB VD turned to her akin — doddering State minds — to push an indefensible defense of her actions.  

   Yes, Irving’s State representatives had to be called into the media fray to register their dismay with the Dallas Morning News.  How shallow!

   After reading the "Letters to the Editor" of the Dallas Morning News today, Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR, took to his tweet account.  The following represents his take on the letter from Irving’s State representatives that was published:

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 Sep 1
DMN L-to-E has "Bogus-gate Complaint" Anderson, "Squeaky" Rinaldi & "In-the-Wind" Sheets backing (the) fabricated facts of QueenB (Irving mayor).

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 Sep 1
New maximum: A lie is not a lie if three Red Meat TEA-carnivores decide it's not a lie … w/letter to DMN.

   And to think, those three individuals represent our city in Austin.  Things must really be under control in Austin for them to be so concerned about the queen fabricating facts that it requires writing the Dallas Morning News.  

   Considering all the time, effort and bogus babbling that was expended on their orations to kill the legislation which would have mandated donors of non-profit "dark money" funds be published, the letter to the editor by the State representatives could have been political backscratching.  

After all, those individuals certainly didn’t want to kill the ‘golden goose’ that supports QueenB VD…or the probable "dark money" contributions to their future campaigns from her handlers.  Did they?  

   Here’s a new campaign slogan for the State representatives…"god save the queen, our ‘dark money’ and tinkle on the DMN."

   Maybe the State representatives should pen a bit of prose to the Dallas Morning News reflecting what they have actually done for Irving besides play TEA Party politics!

   But then, with them continually grinding their molars on mighty chunks of beef, in Red Meat TEA-carnivore crowd settings just like QueenB VD, what should we really expect from Irving’s State representatives…representation of all voters living in their Irving districts?

CCR 08-31-15 Quakes and Tremors

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

   This is another busy week for Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR.  Not only did he endure the disgraceful city council meeting last week, but he has been sniffing around as to what QueenB VD and her Pet Rock collection are plotting, scheming and hiding from the public.

   Remember, this was supposed to be the administration of transparency. Ha! (Meetings in Las Vegas with developers?) This was supposed to be the administration not bought by cronies. Ha! (Can you say "dark money?") And this was the administration which was going to provide a new ethical course for city business. Ha! (Billy Sol Estes could take lessons from the queen.)

   Here are Dylan’s tweets concerning the current status of the Entertainment Center…with a more detailed accounting following his paw perfect observations:

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 Aug 31
Irving CM bending to QueenBs (mayor) whims on ARK contract? #citizens wanting EC > than 5 opposed to doing right thing. Think twice now CM!

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 Aug 31
Sweet aroma in city: Bus load Pizza Inn attorneys deposing CM, mayor, Pet Rocks, IOC, Sugar Daddy handler (for) violating ARK agreement? Let's roll!

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 Aug 31
Feel it? 3.9 tremor in CM office over queenly dictates to bungle ARK contract agreement and place city in legal jeopardy. Help Pizza Inn!

Dylan Westie @DylanWestie1 Aug 31
Another one? 6.3 tremor (in) District 5 could (be) presses printing recall petitions? Voters (are) for EC, and against law suits and political malfeasance.

QueenB VD following disastrous script of her primary & controlling Sugar Daddy handler (by) presenting his dictates (to) Pet Rocks & CM? Disturbing! 

Old Lesson: Public Opinion over disastrous deeds & actions account for Gonzalez following mayor's dictates causing his (no) longer (being) CM in Irving?

ARK contract not up for "negotiating." Council is only supposed to approve ARK lender requirements. Period. QueenB (Irving mayor) is wrong! (Again)

   The future of the Irving Entertainment Center will boil down to what transpires in the city council executive session on Wednesday, September 2, 2015.  And from the information floating around the community, it doesn’t sound good.  Why?

   First, QueenB VD is planning on re-negotiating the ARK agreement.  This is beyond what should be done and is contrary to what the current agreement stipulates.  The council should only be handling the ARK lender stipulations which the council already has voted 5-4 against.

   To open the entire agreement, or attempt to negotiate new items could place the city in a very precarious position…can you say law suit?  (Wake up Pizza Inn ambulance chasers.)  The lender stipulation requirements, which are noted in the agreement, do not open the door for other material items or issues in the agreement to be changed.  Period.

   However, the queen is not fazed by these facts.  She is more interested in exerting her perceived powers to do as she wishes to have another mark on her political resumé.  Sadly, Pet Rocks are still under her influence and show little sign of wavering, thinking, or doing what is in the best interest of the city.

   To push her self-aggrandizement forward, she is sending out form letters to those who question her judgement.  The Flying Harpies are flying over all local blog sites dropping their Torofeca of misinformation, queenly talking points and vitriol.  Remember: this issue is all about her…not what is right and best for the city!

   Secondly, QueenB VD appears to be browbeating, dictating and pushing the City Manager to promote the re-negotiation talking points.  Weren’t these talking points provided to her by her primary Sugar Daddy handler?

   (Didn’t those talking points, in the last council meeting, resonate from the chief opponent to ARKs handling of the Entertainment Center?)

   If the City Manger succumbs to the queen’s dictates, then QueenB VD wins should the votes align to force ARK to reconsider their relationship with the city.  If the votes do not align for the queen, she wins again.  

   The City Manager could become the fall guy for the queen’s failure.  Instead of a ‘cloak of invisibility,’ she would don her ‘martyr cloak’ for all the "little people" in her next political endeavor for the Red Meat TEA-carnivores.  She could regale crowds with how the manager and council just doesn’t understand self-indulgent government.

   Finally, QueenB VDs actions during the whole ARK debacle, which she created, is certainly not designed to provide good will for the city.  In fact, her actions could cost the city more than any action her predecessor managed to accrue.  And with her use of "dark money" for this and the previous council election, her "forensic audit" of anyones records would be a great gag laugh on Comedy Central.  She has far exceeded the financial sins of the past!

   (For those who didn’t know, QueenB VD is also a master chef.  Yes, he has mastered the ability to fashion two different sauces…one for the goose and one for the gander.  Of course, the sauce she uses for her goose will never taint another’s gander.  Once again, it has to be about her.)

   With the ARK disaster she is creating, plus all her previous tours and speeches placating her Red Meat TEA-carnivore pals, she has shined a very dark light on the city.  Developers and businesses certainly have a ‘cause to pause’ when making their relocation or development plans and decisions. 

   After all, who wants do business in Irving…unless it is business QueenB VD wants or approves?  And if all this sounds like the queen and her Sugar Daddy handler’s doings, go to the front of the class.  

   It just remains unconscionable how the Pet Rock pile cannot see through the sham being perpetrated with their consent!

   The final action the council takes after the executive session on Wednesday will determine if the city moves forward, or slides back into the abyss of queenly self-gratification…which creates a dysfunctional city council.

   If ARK remains firm, concerning the queen’s demands which are extremely outrageous, then the possibility of jobs, entertainment venues and providing a branding of the city as THE place to go could float down the Trinity River.  

   And when this happens, QueenB VD will be on the river boat strumming her banjo singing,"Look What I Did" while flipping her mane as she floats to her next Red Meat TEA-carnivore blathering and misinformation session.

   Since Ward was the pivotal vote at the last council meeting, when the lender revisions were disapproved, perhaps he should have a ‘come to Hey-sus’ meeting with constituents instead of the director of the Irving Opportunity Council’s "dark money" fund and a Red Meat TEA-carnivore dedicated to carrying out the queen and Sugar Daddy handler’s dictates.  

   If you contact your city council representatives to request they vote for what is right for the city by not attempting to destroy and re-negotiate the ARK contract, be sure to also let the City Manager know your thoughts and concerns.  While the council will be at fault, Pandora’s box of queenly dictates will still be the cause.

   Once again, here is the information to contact the queen and her Pet Rocks.  Do it now.  QueenB VD is about to pitch another of her famous egotistical snit fits in executive session to demand her dictates be followed.  And considering how weak the Pet Rocks are in doing what is best for the city, they need to hear from concerned citizens.

CCR 08-30-15 It Still Smells

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

   The public sentiment over the vote, to basically kill the Entertainment Center by QueenB VD and her Pet Rock contingency (Ward, Farris, LaMorgese and Riddle), still resonates throughout the community.  And the odoriferous aroma is chocking the city.

   While the queen’s Flying Harpies attempt to spread and sell another gigantic load of Torofeca on the populace, via their FaceBook cave, to assure citizens this was the right vote to take, no one is buying.  And the foul stench and odor of something very 'rotten in Denmark' still lingers.  

   After reviewing the meeting tape, listening to community leaders and hearing the queen blather on TV afterwards while flipping her mane, staff of the CCR provides these take aways for what did, or did not transpire the night QueenB VD and the Pet Rocks (Ward, Farris, LaMorgese and Riddle) made Irving the laughing stock of the Metroplex.

   Think about:
Oscar Ward:  Assuring several key individuals of the city days before the meeting, he stated he was going to vote in favor of the Entertainment Center resolutions.  Oops!  Appears he succumbed to the self-centered whims and fancies of the queen and her handlers at the last minute.  
   Some even believe he had to attend a sit down "come to Hey-sus" meeting with a director of the Irving Opportunity Council’s "dark money" fund and one of the queen’s Red Meat TEA-carnivore supporters.  (Names provided upon request.)  
   If a meeting did take place, what was promised, threatened, or discussed with Ward to weaken his resolve to do the right thing by approving the agenda items?  Doesn’t Ward realize and recognize the Entertainment Center is in his council district and a majority of the individuals (and voters) living there want this facility completed post haste?  

Phil Riddle:  Well, his true colors shined with his vote and support of the queen’s divisive personal agenda.  It appears the "dark money" spent to assist in his election did pay off.  What better way to repay the queen and her "dark money" handlers than to vote against what a majority of the citizens of Irving were in favor of?  
   His comment of not wanting to drink the "Kool-Aid of anger and bitterness" demonstrates he only wants to slurp the top shelf Kool-Aid provided by the queen which is laced with "dark money," Sugar Daddy handlers and a splash of Flying Harpy blathering and browbeating.  Wear your Pet Rock badge proudly, Phil, you earned it!  And such a grave disappointment to voters on your first major vote.

Gerald Farris and Brad LaMorgese:  Nothing new could be said regarding these two low information thinkers when it comes to basically following ever dictate the queen issues.  With a possible lacking of cojonés, for doing what is right for the citizens of the city, their voices are even starting to screech like QueenB VD as they spout her talking points on issues.  Do you think any other city in the area has a duo this co-conjoined in their unbridled support against what the citizens of the city want?  A clue for their future: You cannot be for something and then vote against it.  If you are for it, vote for it!  That should be simple enough to understand.

QueenB VD:  She got what she wanted…again — a re-forming of her Pet Rock cluster.  While the NPD-level in the council chambers appeared to spike to new highs during the meeting, QueenB VD flipped her mane while the TV cameras rolled and she bathed in the spotlight of her self-indulgence.
   However, on behalf of the staff of the CCR, we would issue an apology for Dylan’s following tweet after the final vote:  
Only way to improve image QueenB (Irving mayor) branded on city last night would be to see her (led away) in a DOC orange jump suit with a crew cut.

   This tweet should not have singled out QueenB VD.  The tweet should have also listed Ward, Farris, LaMorgese and Riddle as being led out of city hall in DOC orange jump suits with crew cuts.  After all, they participated, with the queen, in the distasteful action of short-circuiting citizen desires.  Their babbling and vote was just as criminal as the queen’s vote, since it was contrary to what a majority of Irving citizens want. 

What’s Next for ARK?  ARK could pull a "Pizza Inn maneuver" on the city council.  
   In the early 80s, the city council denied Pizza Inn the ability to serve beer and wine in their Irving locations.  So, the pizza chain filed a law suit naming the city and each council member individually libel for $6M.  It didn’t take long for the mayor, at that time, to convene the council and reach the consensus: Pizza always tastes better with beer and wine.  The law suit was dropped and Pizza Inn is still in the city!
   In the Entertainment Center foofaraw, the queen and Pet Rocks argued and danced on issues which were not even relative or germane to the agenda items before them.  Not only was this political malfeasance, but downright disingenuous.
   And with all the executive sessions held to work out all details between the city, ARK, ARKs insurance carrier, and the lender, only one question remained: Why didn’t QueenB VD and her Pet Rocks address their pseudo-concerns during all those briefings?!
   (The answer to the above question is rather simple: No TV or photo op cameras were available for the queen to flash her pearly whites, flip her mane and strike a Hollywood-ish pose in the executive sessions!)
   Besides, the agenda items before the council were legitimate within the context of the current contract and agreement with the city which stipulated ARK could request revisions based on their lenders requirements.  And this is all they were doing.  Period!
   The agenda items before the council had nothing to do with graduations, TIF bucks, or suite seats for dignitaries when the center is completed.  Those matters were all straw dogs designed to feed Flying Harpies, sycophant blog posters, Sugar Daddy handlers, and a contingency of Red Meat Tea-carnivore pals of QueenB VD.
   Distastefully, the agenda item was hijacked by QueenB VD and the Pet Rocks to promote the queen’s personal agenda fashioned by her primary Sugar Daddy handler and contributor.  In fact, wasn’t he at the meeting making a rare appearance in city hall to ensure the queen read his talking points accurately?
   Hopefully, ARK will be pleased many involved and caring citizens have "Liked" a new FaceBook page dedicated to information concerning the Entertainment Center.  And without Flying Harpies posting the queen’s talking points and misinformation, citizens will clearly note what is accurately happening to a venue so necessary for the urban center, the city and the business and tourist industry.  Go visit and "Like" on FaceBook:
Build the Irving Entertainment Center
   (Staff of the CCR only wishes they had put "NOW" in the FB page title.)

What’s Next for QueenB VD:  She will continue her "look what I did" photo op and blathering tour of slanted misinformation regarding the council meeting that made her the focal point for the worst vote the city council has taken in years.  To add insult to injury, she has posted, on FaceBook, a lengthy screed whereby she now states she is ready to "negotiate" with ARK.
   What?  QueenB VD is not ready to negotiate with anyone!  She is, however, ready to "dictate" to ARK what her primary Sugar Daddy handler and contributor has pumped in her shallow head.
   The simple fact remains, the council’s action was not to open the door for "negotiations" of the agreement with ARK.  The council meeting was to approve lender requirements only.   
   Once again for the slower readers, the council was only supposed to approve requirements ARK’s lenders had stipulated…in order for them to receive the financial commitment for the Entertainment Center construction.
   (In part, the revisions had to provide, should an earthquake opened up the entire Entertainment Center acreage and swallow QueenB VD and her royal carriage while she was touring the disaster she created with her vote, coverage.)  
   However, QueenB VD and the Pet Rocks turned the meeting into a clownish sideshow which had no bearing on what was supposed to occur!  And the arrogance of the queen in her handling of the meeting — with a project partner of the city who had pumped considerable time, effort and money into the Entertainment Center project — was despicable. 
   Seriously, if QueenB VDs "negotiating" skills are akin to her "performance" skills at the council meeting, ARK would do best to stay at home.  
   Citizens have probably never witnessed the self-importance and egotism she demonstrated as an elected official that night.  While verbally bullying ARK, by threatening to turn off the microphone, ensuring viewers knew "I am the mayor of Irving and I represent...blah, blah," and attempting to ‘talk over’ the developer who has demonstrated interest in providing a project which will brand and make Irving unique, QueenB VD reached a new low in Irving politics.  And this will be a low which will be difficult to overcome anytime soon…probably, at least, not until 2017.
What’s Next for Citizens?  Until the silent majority gets off their duffs and becomes active in the local political process, Irving will continue to have self-aggrandizing, egocentric, pseudo-leadership in QueenB VD.  And the Pet Rocks will continue to be afraid of thinking independently and doing what is in the best interest of the city…as opposed to sating the queen’s political ambitions, aspirations and ego.

   Starting today, hop on social media and express your opinions.  Write e-mails to members of the city council.  Attend the council meetings and voice your opinion.  Alert your friends and neighbors as to the city hall travesty of a non-functional city council led by QueenB VD.

   Since the queen’s social media minions are primarily pushing her talking points, misinformation and Torofeca, let the light of truth and optimism shine and start the movement to complete a venue which will benefit the city now and for years to come.  Fire up your MacBook Pros (unapologetic commercial plug) and start your wordsmithing!  Your city is waiting.

   And it certainly wouldn’t hurt things if you forwarded this report to a friend, associate, or someone you really don’t like on your e-mail contact list.  All voices need to be informed.

CCR 08-28-15 Disgusting Idiocy

the   Controversial  Committee   Report
“We don’t raise sacred cows...we just butcher them.”

   There are not enough words in the CCRs thesaurus to register the "disgust" felt while watching the Irving City council meeting last evening.

   While CCR staff should not have expected a different outcome, the realization there are so many low information thinkers running the city is frightening.  And when one hears them blather how they are only doing what is right…gag reflexes go into perpetual motion.

   (Correction: They are doing what is right —  for the IOC "dark money" clan, Sugar Daddy handlers of the queen and the Flying Harpy flock of syncopates.)

   Knowing staff could not produce a report to reach all CCR readers by this morning, we relied on Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR, to cover the meeting and register his unvarnished thoughts on the proceedings.

   All we can say, to QueenB VD and the Pet Rocks, at this point is thanks for showing the world how backward a city council can act when presented with the development which would have made the city the envy of surrounding communities.

   The following is Dylan’s observations when an epidemic of stupidity infects QueenB VD and her Pet Rock collection (Ward, Farris, Riddle, LaMorgese).  Using only 140-characters per tweet, Dylan captured what turned out to be a 5-4 vote to basically kill the entire Entertainment Center deal.  In essence, the life support lines have been pulled on this venture.

EC vote tonight: If anything gets punted tonight, it should be Ward & Riddle if they sell out citizens for QueenBs (Irving mayor) benefit.

QueenB (Irving mayor) brings in her primary handler & money guy to speak against the EC. This is where the money talks and she listens!

Ward reading his excuses for the agreement being bad. Why didn't he voice these issues months ago? Looks like the queen got to him! How sad.

Riddle starts his Fred Astaire routine to prep for a vote against the EC by following the other Pet Rock talking points. Also, very sad!

City manager: Blah, blah, blah marriage with ARK. Blah, blah, blah revised agreement. Blah, blah blah...OK, I recommend approval…blah,blah

Oh god...Danish had to bring Abraham Lincoln into the discussion.  Focus Danish.

ARK slaps Ward who does not have a response to the reality of what is being voted on. Ward looks foolish for the question he asked! Good!

ARK now slapping the queen who is dredging up her old tireless and misinformation. This is a sad night for the city of Irving!!!

QueenB (Irving mayor) tries to talk over ARK. She is unrelenting! "You're talking to the mayor. I represent 250,000 people." Torefeca, QueenB.

The more QueenB (Irving mayor) rants and belittles ARK, worse the city looks. Guess her Sugar Daddy handler told her to empty all barrels!

Fact: ARK is smarter than QueenB (Irving mayor) and Pet Rocks combined. Queen moans, groans and flips her mane while trying to sink deal.

Pet "Both Sides of Ever Issue" Rock Farris attempting to say he likes the deal while spouting the queen's talking points. What a twit!

Thank you Dennis Webb.  You hit the nail on the head. The QueenB (Irving mayor) and Pet Rocks are an embarrassment to the city!

Oscar Ward & Phil Riddle, with their queen’s-EC vote, have violated the public trust they were elected to serve. Shame! Shame!

New ICVB slogan: "Irving - Burro Capital of Texas." Did you see all the anti-asses at special EC council meeting? Who knew? We’re #1?

QueenB (Irving mayor) immediately schedules press conference for Flying Harpy & Dark Money Appreciation over EC vote postponement.

IOC "dark money" bought the votes to basically kill EC. Citizens, businesses & hotels lose. Pet Rocks kowtow to queen. Sad day for Irving.

Irving has taken 1st major step showing world the city is a hick village, since QueenB (Irving mayor) began her reign of divisiveness.

   There is probably no reason to call your council representative and register your disgust.  QueenB VD and the Pet Rocks (Ward, Farris, LaMorgese, Riddle) have already demonstrated they only listen to IOC "dark money," Sugar Daddy handlers and the Flying Harpy flock controlled by the queen.
   In essence, a majority of involved and concerned citizens interested in the betterment of the city has no gravitas with those fools.
