CCR 04-12-16 Cock Crowing

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

   The first public hearing on the chicken ban ordinance was held last evening and around 150 individuals showed up.  Full details noted in the following DMN article by Michael E. Young.

   The second public hearing will be this evening at the Irving Arts Center starting at 6:30 PM.  Those who attended last evening’s meeting should plan to attend the meeting tonight.  
   (Some council members have poor memory recall, so it is best for them to hear the concerns twice.)
   If roosters, as claimed by a very, very small number, make too much noise, then the council should immediately address noises made by dogs, feral cats in heat, roaming coyotes killing pets, sirens, airplanes, mother-in-laws, and long-winded politicians.

   If roosters or hens carry diseases, then where is the public outcry for the multitude of diseases dogs, cats, parakeets, hamsters, squirrels, mockingbirds, grackles, and basically any other pet or wild life roaming or flying around the city...exposing or dropping their bacteria on the general public?

   No, a couple of grumpy folks (chicken haters) just don’t like to hear roosters crow, and instead of enforcing existing ordinances, they want to reinvent the wheel to please personal whims.  Sad, but true! 

   Will the minority (chicken haters) rule on this issue?  

   Actually, the issue will boil down to: BureauCats writing the ordinance vs. Voting Citizens...with the outcome being determined by the Irving City council.  

   How many council members are going to touch the feathery "third rail," with this many individuals protesting an overreaching ordinance, and be fried crispier than a Colonel Sanders chicken leg?

*** Breaking News ***

   Many dear readers will remember QueenB VDs unbelievable comment at the March 16, 2016, city council work session.  Dylan Westie, Executive editor/Part-time wordsmith and Social Media Troll for the CCR, has discovered her problem of not having a "cock in the fight," for the chicken banning ordinance, appears to be resolved.

   During Dylan’s early morning constitution he discovered QueenB VD had, in fact, found "one" to join her in the fight.  Luckily, he had his iPhone 6® handy and captured the queen and her most current warrior.  To alert the queen’s realm, he tweeted the following:
