THE WAGES OF IGNORANCE
Long but interesting article that furthers the discussion on race.

IDIOTS WANT TO SEND MORE OF YOUR KIDS TO DIE IN A MEANINGLESS WAR IN AFGHANISTAN
They send their own kids to Harvard and Yale, so they can become the next generation to send others' kids to die for nothing. LINK

IS IT TIME TO HAVE THE OC FIRE AUTHORITY TAKE OVER COSTA MESA'S FIRE FIGHTING?

Twenty-two cities in Orange County don't have their own fire departments. They use the Orange County Fire Authority instead.

Would Costa Mesa save money if we abolished our Fire Department and used the OCFA?

This is a question that the City Council should be asking.

ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW THE SILLY COUNCIL SPENDS OUR MONEY

At last night's Silly Council meeting, Mayor Pro Tem Leece wanted to cut back the pay of our Planning Commissioners to something reasonable. Leece was voted down by the dumb-water drinking other four big spenders.

Here's what Planning Commissioners make:

Costa Mesa--$400 per month.
Ft. Valley--$50 per meeting (Up to 3 meetings per month.)
Fullerton--$75 per meeting (Two meetings per month.)
Garden Grove--$0
Huntington Beach--$50 per meeting (Up to 3 meetings per month. Note that HB is twice the size of Costa Mesa and is as built out as we are.)
Irvine--$300 per month (Note that Irvine has lots of building going on.)
Newport Beach--$65 per month (Regardless of number of meetings.)
Orange--$60 per meeting (Regardless of number of meetings.)
Santa Ana--$50 per meeting (Max of 3 meetings per month.)

There is no logical reason why Costa Mesa pays more than all these other cities. HB is twice the size of Costa Mesa and pays much less. Irvine, with constant building, also pays less. Santa Ana, which is three times the size of Costa Mesa, only pays $ 50 per meeting.

During public comments, the CM PRESS suggested that the Council (As we had previously suggested in the CM PRESS--#733,June 25, #738,July 1, #745,July 8), dissolve the Parks and Recreation Commission and have the Planning Commission take over their duties. We also suggested that we drop the pay of Planning Commissioners to $ 50 per meeting.

Our suggestions fell on dumb ears, as we say on the street.

THE REAL SIGNIFICANCE OF OBAMA/JOKER POSTER


The real significance of the Obama as the Joker poster may be two-fold:

1. If it truly has gone viral, as some claim, it may indicate that Obama no longer has the Teflon to deflect criticism and open mocking.

2. It's often the case that a single negative image of a politician can start a cascade of dislike for that politician that is difficult or impossible to stop. Is this image the one that will cause such disaffection for Obama? Time will tell. Watch the polls.

SOMEONE CARES SOUP KITCHEN MAY CLOSE
According to this story in the OCR.

Maybe it can move to Newport Beach where many of the volunteers and donors live.

If the argument is made that Newport Beach doesn't have enough people living there who will take advantage of the free food and services, we're sure that some neighbors of the present location will chime in with a line from the movie Field of Dreams: "If you build it, they will come."

Those are our opinions. Thanks for reading them.
