IMPORTANT ISRAELI RABBI COMPARES NON-JEWS TO DONKEYS WHOSE ONLY PURPOSE IN LIVING IS TO SERVE JEWS Link # # # CALIFORNIA ATTORNEY GENERAL SAYS THERE ARE MANY CITIES IN CALIFORNIA WITH BELL LIKE PROBLEMS
Say, that reminds us. Wasn't Costa Mesa going to release compensation figures for our city employees?
Where are those figures? All we have are the ones from 2008, and they've no doubt gone up since then.
If you want to see how well you pay some of your employees, go to Jim Righeimer's website HERE for some figures from 2008.
Maybe if there had been a Jim Righeimer in Bell, the citizens of that city would have discovered their crooks a lot sooner.
Of course, if Righeimer had run for office in Bell, the unions would no doubt have been trying to get him defeated.
Makes you wonder, doesn't it? Also, why is it that Righeimer is the only one of the five city council candidates even asking about such things this year? Hmmmmm?
You know, city employee unions brow beat city councils into raising their compensation packages based on what other cities pay their union employees.
It's like a game of economic leapfrog. The unions in the various cities all try to get their compensation packages raised by electing city councils who will play footsie. Then the neighboring city's union points to the compensation in that other city as justification for getting their own compensation packages raised. This goes on year after year.
Soon, as is the case in Costa Mesa, the employees make more than the bosses (the citizens) and can afford to live in much nicer cities and can afford to put thousands of dollars into campaigns to elect or defeat city council candidates who won't play along.
We have a better idea of how to negotiate these things. Let's peg employee salaries to the median income level of the residents of Costa Mesa instead of letting unions play this leap frog game with us year after year.
Think of it as a sort of municipal Peace Corps plan. As you probably know, Peace Corps volunteers must live no better than the people they are helping.
# # # WHAT WAS THE REAL PROBLEM IN BELL?
City employees made the citizens of Bell their servants instead of it being the other and correct way around.
The employees of Bell dictated to the citizens and robbed them blind.
Meanwhile, the citizens of Bell were apathetic and some were the usual low I.Q. groupies and suck-ups to anyone in a uniform that we see in every city--including in Costa Mesa.
Don't let your employees dictate to you as they did in Bell and as some are trying to do here in Costa Mesa.
Jim Righeimer will help reestablish the correct respectful relationship between uniformed city employees and citizens of Costa Mesa. He'll put citizens back in charge and he'll help restore confidence in the Costa Mesa Police Department.
Improvers are saying this to each other: You can vote for two candidates for City Council this year in Costa Mesa, but... DON'T USE BOTH VOTES. JUST USE ONE VOTE AND THROW THE OTHER ONE AWAY. USE YOUR ONE VOTE FOR JIM RIGHEIMER.
The Improvers believe this will help defeat those who want to rule you as in Bell and that this will put the power back in the hands of the ordinary citizens of Costa Mesa. But, maybe you have a different idea. It's up to you how you will choose to vote.
Ask yourself this: Did you vote for any of the union cops who are trying to defeat Jim Righeimer? Who gave them the right to try to dictate to the electorate of Costa Mesa? Why are they spending $40,000 to try to convince you to vote against Righeimer in a completely negative campaign that has no positive aspects?
You've seen the dirt that these unelected mostly out of town union cops have been slinging. They've dredged up the fact that Righeimer, like many others in our economy, had some bills twenty years ago. Big deal.
Righeimer is a family man. Unlike many of these carpetbaggers, he lives in Costa Mesa. Unlike many of these carpetbaggers, what happens in Costa Mesa affectsRigheimer, his wife and his small kids. When he works to make Costa Mesa better for himself, his wife and his kids, he is also making it better for all of us.
Remember, most of the crooks in Bell didn't live or vote in that city. They could rob it blind and feather their own nests because their nests were far away from Bell. Don't let that happen in Costa Mesa.
Keep local control over Costa Mesa and our employees. They work for us. We do not work for them.
Don't vote against one of our own because some out of town union types want more money and benefits from you.
Don't be a sap like the citizens of Bell. Take charge of Costa Mesa and your future in our great city.
Don't be DING DONGS like the people of Bell.

A BILLION GALLONS OF WATER IN JUST ONE CRATER ON THE MOON
So why are we wasting our space dollars on make-work projects instead of establishing a permanent base on the moon? And, will we elect a president in 2012 with the proper vision to establish such a base?
