(a short and timely jotting for CCR twits Tweeters)
dwT #47: With the economy still floundering and health care cost about to raze the roof, I’m hoping the city council will appointee me to a job paying board position. The only current opening is to fill Irving’s seat on the DART board previously occupied by now-recycled councilman John Danish.
Backstory clue for the information impaired: Not wanting him to sit on a street corner with a cardboard sign that reads “Will Wordsmith for Wages,” staff of the CCR is attempting to secure some form of a paying position for Dylan Westie, Executive Editor and Part-time Wordsmith for the CCR. While a dedicated staff member, Dylan is having a difficult time making ends meet in this turbulent economy. And the CCR is adverse to paying more than the minimum wage...for the minimum effort he calls work. If we can convince the Irving city council to appoint Dylan to the DART board as the replacement for John Danish, then he has a fighting chance of being able to provide for all his offspring roaming the neighborhood with the trifling renumeration for parking his posterior in DART board meetings.
The necessary Irving appointment to the DART board is as a result of Danish recycling his loquacious and grandiose torso to the Irving city council chambers. At the time this gringo won the council seat in a single member district (another cause championed by Danish and his faithful sidekick Sancho Panza Benavides) designed and drawn for a Hispanic representative, Danish also realized that under Texas law he could not receive payments from two governmental entities at the same time. To resolve his being paid for his DART position and the city council at the same time, he had to make a determination as to which check he wanted to cash. And being the true liberal that he is, Danish chose the check with the largest dollar amount...the Irving city council voucher.
And this begs the question: When is an established and well known Irving liberal no longer a bona fide liberal? Short answer: When they become a 2L (Limousine Liberal) and drive around town in their four-wheel boat-like Caddy, nosh at fine dining establishments, select higher paying public service checks, and need to bite their tongue while espousing loads of clap-trap designed to sway the ‘little people” while spending tax bucks with abandon. Yes dear readers, there is no doubt that Danish is just one vehicle trade-up or “little people” oration from being a genuine red state conservative! (Welcome back to limelight of the CCR, John! Did you miss us?)
While Dylan will keep his paws crossed and hope to be selected to fill the Irving DART board seat, the reality is that the council will probably dig seriously deep into the bowels of the political-recycle bin and appoint another “do you know who I use to be” to fill this paying board position. Does Irving need to have its water tested to determine why some of the ‘young Turks‘ are not being appointed or groomed for leadership roles in the city by the council? Will city issues ever be resolved if the perpetrators of the original problems are given second chances to screw things up again?
All of these “green officials” (recycled politicos) are beginning to look and smell like a wedge of bad Limburger cheese. And that’s with the understanding that there is no such thing as a good wedge of Limburger cheese.
A note from counsel: Some “Tweets” from Dylan Westie have been injected with fabricated nouns, verbs, adjectives, conjunctions, adverbs, modifiers and maybe a few dangling participles….Mark Holbrook
