Unfortunately, McCarthy then pulls punches as he follows the above by saying that we don't build enough owner occupied homes in Costa Mesa. Now, that's true, however, we would have liked to see McCarthy write what the CM PRESS has been calling for: a thinning out of the dense apartments similar to the way it is being done in Stanton.
We don't need a redevelopment zone. We don't need eminent domain. All we need is for the City to step into the real estate market as would any ordinary investor/buyer and buy up dense apartment buildings when they come on the market; one here and one there. Then, unlike an ordinary investor/buyer, the City should tear them down and put in additional parking or green space.
Now, this could be done by the City alone, or the City could form a partnership with the private sector. Either way, if the dense apartments are thinned out, we'll see less graffiti, less crime, less crowding, fewer gangs, an improvement in our schools and a general improvement of Costa Mesa and especially in those areas that are so impacted with these dense apartments.
The first squishy thing that McCarthy wrote was this: "Graffiti is not a Latino problem or a Caucasian problem...." Okay, so why even waste words writing this? (You know the answer.) But, since the door was opened with this statement, you astute readers are probably saying "Where are the statistics to back this up?" McCarthy offers none.
McCarthy then tells us that graffiti, is, well: "...it’s a housing problem." Actually, not one dense apartment building has ever put graffiti on anything. Humans are the ones who put graffiti around the city. Humans cause crime. Humans cause social dysfunction. Humans cause our schools to fail. Humans cause the deterioration of the city.
But we don't want to be too picky and we understand the larger point that McCarthy is making. And, notwithstanding anything we've written above, this really isn't intended as a criticism of McCarthy and we're pleased that he at least brought this up in the almost daily Daily Pilot. That's more than most others on the dais are doing.
As you may know, McCarthy is in line to run for the City Council, but has probably planned on that being in 2012 instead of 2010. The reason is that in the 2010 election there will be two seats up, and it's expected that Jim Righeimer and Wendy Leece will run on "our side."
However, as previously reported, the CM PRESS is hearing grumbling from the Improvement community over some of the decisions that have been made by Ms. Leece who seems to vote with lefty Katrina Foley far too much and who thus thumbs her nose at Improvers, as well as at Mayor Mansoor and Councilmember Bever.
Will some decide to dump Leece and ask McCarthy to run in 2010? Stay tuned.

Here's the truth: Seemingly minor changes in DNA can have very major effects in the finished product: a living organism.
In addition, a minor change in DNA that may change one characteristic often makes other changes. An example of this last point is illustrated with the ear wax gene. East Asians have mostly dry ear wax. This gene is also linked to sweating and body odor. Those with dry ear wax have less body odor than people with wet ear wax because the former sweat less.
Notice also this PC sentence: [T]he overall genomes of all human beings are virtually identical...."
That's as silly as looking at a forest from afar and saying that all the trees are virtually identical. Get closer to the forest or to DNA and the vast differences are apparent.

DO WHITE AFRICANS EXIST?
Whites born in Africa are persecuted and discriminated against. If they start businesses or farms, these are often taken from them and given to Blacks despite the hard work of the Whites.
Why is the world largely silent about this? Oh right, it's because they're White.

Here's a website where you can rate local politicians and see how they voted on some issues. We've never much trusted anonymous ratings, because candidates or their enemies can easily skew the results one way or another. However, this site may be of value as a reminder on how pols voted on some issues.

ANTI-WHITE QUOTE OF THE DAY
“The goal of abolishing the white [sic] race is on its face so desirable that some may find it hard to believe that it could incur any opposition other than from committed white [sic] supremacists.”
— Noel Ignatiev, history professor at the Massachusetts College of Art, Harvard Magazine, Sep-Oct 2002
The above is one of several anti-White quotes that the American Third Position Party has captured and put on its website (link in article below) to illustrate the type of hatred Whites face.

NEW ARTICLE FROM AMERICAN THIRD POSITION PARTY
We're keeping a casual watch on this new party that is trying to be born in Orange County. Many have tried before and failed.
From an intellectual and sociological standpoint we find it interesting to watch how various new political parties (such as this one) and organizations (such as the Tea Parties) develop in the ever fermenting brew of present day America.
We'll put up links to this party aborning (or aborting) from time to time.

TEA PARTY NATION GOING TO LAS VEGAS
The Tea Party Nation seems to be the most organized of the various Tea Party groups. We like the fact that they're holding their second convention in Nevada--home to that creep Senator Harry Reid, who many grass roots folks would like to see defeated in November.

COSTA MESA PUT IN SLUM CITY CATEGORY LAST NIGHT
[City needs to keep 3 defibrillators near the dais. Read this article and then the one below to understand why.]
At last night's City Council meeting, Councilmembers Leece, Foley and Monahan voted to have the entire city of Costa Mesa named a recovery zone.
Costa Mesa thus joins other cities such as Santa Ana (and probably Compton), that have put their entire cities in this category.
Mayor Mansoor and Councilmember Bever wisely voted against the slum designation.
We expected this from Foley, but we're disappointed that Monahan and especially Leece went along with this nonsense.
Aren't they able to see how things are connected?
This is the question that we constantly ask ourselves when we see really stupid things coming from the Council--things that help drive Costa Mesa ever lower.
Some on the Council seem to think that the decisions they make are somehow not connected to the big picture and exist in a vacuum. This is false and ignorant thinking.
Do we have to draw a chart with lines showing how a decision to keep slums leads to crime and failing schools and lower home values and a fleeing middle class?
Can't the Councilmembers see that we live in a cause and effect universe and that Costa Mesa is diverging from our sister city Newport Beach and becoming more like Santa Ana, and that the reason is their decisions and their lack of a proper vision and leadership?
We reported yesterday on two gun point robberies in Costa Mesa. We also reported that four charities on the Westside use tax payer funds but only serve Hispanics, including, no doubt, illegal aliens. We've constantly said that unless we remove slum buildings, Costa Mesa and especially the Westside will never improve. We've reported that Costa Mesa High School is now officially a failing school because student test scores are so low. It goes on and on and on.
The things in the above paragraph are all part of a whole. They, and many other negatives that we could add, say that Costa Mesa is a slum city. So, instead of doing the right things to improve the City, the Council does just the opposite and now lets the world know that we're right up there with Santa Ana and Compton in being slum cities that upwardly mobile people should flee.
Ms. Leece's many bad decisions aren't going unnoticed, and we expect that she may be losing a lot of grass roots support and may run into trouble if she decides to seek reelection.

Given what we've seen on the dais from some Councilmembers, we wouldn't be surprised to see a group chest clutch at some meeting.
