I hope Mr. Alvarez not only has the best interest of his constituents in mind, but the best interest of the city as a whole. For now and in the distant future. Too many times we have had a council that "has the blinders on" and we end up having to pay for it later. If previous councils had the guts to do what was right for the community, not just what a few loud-mouth-squeaky-wheels in their districts said was right, then Victoria would be a much better place. IMO.
I am going to try and keep an open mind in how Emett is going to operate within the chambers, but there is a nagging part of me that says he's going to turn this into a circus and it could get very ugly very quick. If you would like to know what I mean, look at oneleg's last comment. It's sad to have to say this, but not everyone speaks in innuendos and insinuations, especially our jerk of a mayor. He's pretty much in your face.
I thought Denise did a pretty good job. Never heard any complaints, except of course from Emett over the water treatment plant. I guess he is hard of hearing or has a very thick skull. Anyway, I hope it remains civil and not devolve into an episode of Jerry Springer.

In typical VicAd fashion, they left out the most important piece of information. What was the make and model of the car? Maybe it was a 69 GTO and the puppy just could't stand to see it go?
"To lump everyone together in terms of Hispanic and Latino doesn't really account for the diversity of the people," Oboler said. "It's like lumping together the British, Canadians and even the South Africans and Australians."
Umm, isn't that what already happens when you say "white people"?
I have always been curious about the difference between Latino and Hispanic and Chicano.
Since VPD didn't issue a statement on this "raid" the VicAd reporter does what any reporter worth his salt would do...ask the neighbors. That way people have the facts and nobody is making false accusations, conclusions or statements. *the preceding statement was heavily laced with sarcasm*
Based on the picture I'd say that either the bikes were stolen or the guy was wanted on some outstanding moving violations. Like excessive speeding or dangerous driving. I hear those bikes going down the loop at night and you can tell they're hauling ass.
Or it could be that VPD was bored and wanted to stick it to some punks!
You site your sources, but you failed to site the source of the 55 million figure. Care to share that one?
I don't want to say that you're easily manipulated or brainwashed, obviously you're a smart man, but some of things you say often sound like they were delivered with full faith in whomever told you and with little or no real research done. And by real research I mean non-biased, fact-based.
Here's what I think.
For hundreds of years, probably more like thousands of years, Pit Bulls have been bred to be a fighting breed. Dog fights to the death, hunting dogs to bring down medium sized to large game and dangerous game. They were chosen because of certain characteristics that made them good at those tasks.
Not much different from other breeds. Labs and Goldens were bred for hunting because of their natural swimming and retreiving skills, blood hounds because of thier natural tracking skills and incredible sense of smell. The list goes on and on.
The point is that despite all of the loving and training you give a pit, deep down in it's DNA and genetics, it's a fighting/killing machine. It's what it was bred for. You can't keep a Lab out of the water and a bloodhound from tracking.
I think if you really loved your dog, then you wouldn't try to teach it to be something it's not. Own a pit? Find a hog hunter that uses dogs and put it to good use.
Don't pee on my leg and tell me it's raining.
A sign permit is issued by the city so that a business may erect a sign, be it temporary or permanent. It is important because that is one of the things businesses need to take care of before they get set to open. So, what one can deduce from this is that Rooms To Go is going to open a new store in that location.
thanks, Mike. Even though we typically differ on our views, politically, I think you're a pretty level headed fellow.
Do you think that orginizations like the Mexican American/Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, LULAC, NAACP, Hispanic Caucus, Black Caucus and other orginizations that are based on the advancement of a particular race, while very beneficial for minority groups, actually attribute to racial tension?
“The one battle that must never be lost, is allowing young people to believe it is okay to…”marginalize human beings” because of their difference.”
We are all part of a single race, the human race. Why do some people have a hard time accepting that and moving forward?
Mr. T pities the fool that uses birth control. I've heard of blind faith, but I wasn't aware that it was deaf and dumb, too.
My Bible is a bit dusty and my ability to recall all of scripture is wack, but could you please tell me the verse where it states that birth control is blasphemy?
Highly ironic that a group of men who don't marry, have sex or even date have such power over the way couples are supposed to live. Would you take advice on how to build a house from a person that's forbidden from picking up a hammer?
