HERES SOMTHING NOVEL- how about advocating for legalized WEED- like in Colorado, ETC; Sunday sales, lowering the legal age to 18; raising the legal limit to .10 where it was before, decriminalizing OWI; DUI- if theres no personal injuries, or property damages? MAYBE bring back HAPPY HOURS; RE-LEGALIZE CHERRYMASTERS- heck- like the lottery- allow the various gambling corporations to be th evendors and operatorers of these legalized slots/poker machines. AX ALL THESE ACTIVITIES SUFFICIENTLY.
examle- POT FO RPOTHOLES; DOPE FOR THE DCS; BUD FOR BUSSES; and so on.. FACTORIES, MANUFACTURING, is a fools errand- look at the de- industrialization of the 80's- when we had thousands of jobs.. and now? all the various corporations that were the backbone of fort wayne- have left town; leaving a ghost town in their wake. and slave wages..
STOP SPENDING LIKE DRUNKEN SAILORS- the Legacy cash; th eredevelopment commission; ll the TIFF SLUSH FUNDS.. and maybe OFFER TO WORK FOR $1 DOLLAR A YEAR- LIKE ROSS PEROT- UNTIL WE THE PEOPLE SEE SOME RESULTS.?
but what do i know? im just the village idiot savant( get the humor )? we have stupidly- a one party system- contrary to our founding fathers.. A crooked and corrupt KLEPTOCRACY totally unaccountable to the people; and an opressive QUOTE- ZERO TOLERANCE POLICE DEPARTMENT- more akin to well- the aforementioned NAZIS- OPRESSIVE OCCUPYERS- more concerned with ticket and collect- tax collections, revenue enhancement instead of PUBLIC SAFETY- PEACE OFFICERS- PEACE, SAFETY AND TRANQUILITY..- Instead of Smart enforcement.
We stupidly locked our local govternments into a costly fuel contract for 3 bucks a gallon- when the price of GAS was falling-so- can we just bo buy our fuel at any pumpwhere its cheaper unless the price of gas goes up (NO)?- whos the genius who came up with that idea?
THEN WE HAVE THE STUPID IDEA- to DEMOLISH THE JAIL- which ED rosseau-so lavishly and lovingly built as as personal EDIFICECOMPLEX( joke?)- so we can have the riverfront?- since when did the army corps of civil engineers say we could build again on that flood plain? foget the flood of 1913? the flood of 1978? of 1982?- AND JUST WHOS GOING TO PAY FOR ALL THIS FLIM-FLAMMERY?
I could go on and ui wil, but with all due respect- all you folks have your heads up your colective behinds, and dont seem to know what the heck your doing. AND NOW- WERE GOING TO HIRE A NEW DIRECTOR FROMOUT OF TOWN ; OUT OF STATE- well- typical-out of town ; out of state consultants who are clueless of institutional history and localknowledge of whos who; whats what; why we can opr cant do things; whos crooked and whos not-VERY IMPORTANT- and so on?
SO- ID LIKE TO BE HIRED AS THE NEW DIRECTOR- IMA STRAIGHT SHOOTER- I TELL IT LIKE IT IS; AND I WILL GET THING S DONE. LIKE PATTON..
?? hell will freeze over sooner, but hey-
so- best of luck to you all. if i had my way- id dissolve this whole sinking enterprise- scuttle it like a leaky rusty SCOW useless for anything as the track record shows..
merry chriustmas! happy holidays, and happy new year. and HERES YOUR SIGN!! ( as the comedian Bill engvall would say..)
