CCR 03-17-16 Chicken Veracity

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

"Chicken Veracity"

   The most common comment staff the CCR received, concerning all the feather fluffing regarding the banning of chickens in Irving, was related to QueenB VDs statement at the city council work session on Wednesday, March 16, 2016.

   Many folks were aghast and stated: "She really didn’t say that did she?  Perhaps, you misunderstood what you thought you heard."

   Well, dear readers, your all Red Meat TEA-carnivore, Glenn Beck devotee, east coast educated, and self-centered QueenB VD, did in fact utter:

 "…I don’t have a cock in this fight."
   So much for civil decorum.  So much for the Ivy league lexicon.  And cheers for being the same bent as Glenn Beck who recently called presidential candidate, John Kasich, a SOB.
(There must be something in the TEA which these sycophants slurp.)

   It should also be noted, QueenB VD made this comment as she was speaking in condescending terms regarding Councilman Danish’s farm report comments.  As is her favorite ploy, the queen always wants to have the last word as she believes her word is the Holy Grail of conflict resolution.
   (NEWS FLASH: QueenB VDs last words on the chicken ban ordinance will follow her for the rest of her political career.)   

   Being a family publication, this report would receive a XXX-rating if staff published the rejoinders sent concerning the queen’s utterly distasteful choice of words.  It’s bad enough we have to even publish her quote in a report.
(And folks are still wondering why Irving’s press is so bad?)

   For those who just might want to test the veracity of the CCR regarding this issue of sailor-spewing synonyms by QueenB VD, the link to hear her own words has been noted.

   The link will take you to the video tape version of the city council work session.  The chicken ordinance ban is Item #29 and the section of the meeting is identified as Item 2: Part 1of 2 reflected in the sections to select.  The queen’s comment starts at the 50:18 section of the discussion.

   Since chicken banning in Irving must be the most important issue facing the city council, one can only thank rookie council member, Phil Riddle, who had received "so many" phone calls and who also served as head of the committee which placed the item on the agenda.  And, in his words, the time was "now" to finally do something about Irving’s chickens, in his opinion.

Council Action On Chicken Ordinance
03-17-16 Meeting

   As mentioned in the 03-16-16 CCR, the city council did postpone the chicken ban ordinance Thursday evening.  There will be two public hearings whereby citizens, chicken lovers and rooster aficionados can pluck the council’s feathers, or throw unfertilized eggs in settings less intimidating than the council chambers.  These sessions are scheduled for:

   April 11, 2016  6:30 PM  Heritage Senior Center
   April 12, 2016  6:30 PM  Irving Art Center
   Alert your friends and neighbors.  Remember, the time is now to Give A Pluck, as #roostersmatter.  Keep clucking to be heard for transparency by your elected officials.
