In the above article, the Robins say that they have a new group called Costa Mesans for Responsible Government. Our guess is that it is just the same old Return to Reason gang of libs.
Anyway, the Robins say that "we" put out 9,000 leaflets last weekend concerning the charter.
Now, the CM PRESSES didn't see any of those leaflets, but we
wonder if they had headlines such as:
"KEEP COSTA MESANS SLAVES TO TWO BIT POLITICIANS IN SACRAMENTO WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN TO COSTA MESA"
"WE ARE LIKE DUMB CHILDREN AND WE CAN'T GOVERN OURSELVES, KEEP SACRAMENTO IN CHARGE OF COSTA MESA"
"WE'RE LOONEY LIBERALS AND WE LIKE BIG, FARAWAY GOVERNMENT DICTATING TO US"
"REJECT LOCAL CONTROL AND SELF GOVERNMENT FOR COSTA MESA--LET THE
You know folks, we Martins at the CM PRESSES have always believed that government that is closest to the people is the best government. What do the many politicians in Sacramento whose districts are hundreds of miles away from Costa Mesa, and who probably don't even know where Costa Mesa is located, know about running our particular city?
Didn't the Goslow Wendys--the Godmothers of the malcontents and obstructionists--gush that Costa Mesa is "unique"? If so, then wouldn't it be better for us to govern ourselves?
Lack of self-esteem behind some of the hate?
Something else has occurred to us concerning the hatred that some seem to aim mostly at the Jim Righeimers and the Steve Mensingers that we think might be pathological.
Certainly, it seems that the attacks against the Jims and the Steves come after virtually anything either of these two do or say. If you doubt this, just check the comments in the Daily Pilots following the most innocuous things from these guys and you'll see hatred falling off the page from the mostly anonymous commenters.
If the Jims or the Steves say that the day is going to be sunny, the haters will whine. If they say that the day isn't going to be sunny, the haters will whine. You see what's really going on here, don't you? It's personal hatred in some cases.
Why? What is the psychological basis for such personal hatred?
Well, here's one possible explanation. We've heard similar hatred aimed at the Rush Limbaughs, coming from people who we know and who we know have low self-esteem.
We've actually probed some of these people a little to get to what really bugs them about the Rushes. The cover explanations often involved politics, but then when we dug deeper we got to things such as: "He's too full of himself." "He's too assertive." "He's too sure of himself." "He thinks he's better than others."
And most, but not all, of the comments like this come from women---who are apparently threatened by men who are assertive and sure of themselves. Could some of this be going on with some of the haters of the Jims and the Steves? Maybe.
So here's our advice to the Jims and the Steves: Pansy up boys. Start wearing pink ruffled shirts. Don't speak as though you know what you're talking about. Don't sound competent. Don't sound sure of yourselves. Don't mention football.
Study the Goslow Wendys' faces which always show the greatest concern, for whatever anyone says. Just copy the Goslow Wendys' expressions And then, of course, you can do like the Goslow Wendys and not actually do anything to really help that person.
You see, as we've written before in the CM PRESSES, such people who think the Goslow Wendys are doing a good job don't even care that the Goslow Wendys don't do anything. They don't want answers. They don't want solutions. They just want someone to shutup and give them a shoulder to cry on, to commiserate with them, and say tsk, tsk at the right moments. It's a girly kind of thing.

ITZCOATL OCAMPO ARRESTED AS SUSPECT IN HOMELESS MURDERS
We wonder if "Itzcoatl" is this guy's real given name or if he's a Brown racist who took that name as some Brown racists do.
Have you noticed that all the victims have been White?
