Scarier Than Hobgoblins!
Hope you all had a fun Halloween. Seems like we've had fewer and fewer trick-or-treaters the past couple years. I'm down from my high of 11 bags of candy five years ago to around three this year, and that's including giving each little hobgoblin a fistful of individually-wrapped, concentrated sugar and chocolate.
LOTS OF FUN CHARACTERS IN OUR NEIGHBORHOOD
I was quite disappointed - not one single "Octomom" showed up on my doorstep begging for sweets! Bummer. We had plenty of other creative little critters wandering around, though, escorted by flashlight-toting parents - always a good thing.
SCARIER THAN HALLOWEEN CHARACTERS
The real scary part of Saturday for me was the absolutely horrendous post that appeared on one local blog - the one authored by Costa Mesa's racist laureate, our old pal, The Mouth From Mesa North. I've thought long and hard about whether to provide the text of part of that post and finally decided that it would so contaminate this page that I might never get the stench out. Instead, I'll leave you with a link to it, HERE, and let you deal with the foul content as you choose, in it's original form.
WHAT'S THE BIG DEAL?
There might be some who will say, "Hey, Potstirrer, what's the big deal? He's just trying to make a point!" OK, but is it REALLY necessary for him to use those seven incendiary words? I don't think so. I think he just needed to vent and, in the process, gave us a little peek into his perverted, alleged Mensa mind.
This is how the mind of The Mouth works - that mind that has been influencing local politics for almost a decade and that is responsible for the emergence of local elected officials who share his views on social order and demographic priorities. This is the mind that, from time to time, has used the swastika as an adornment on some of his any essays published on far, far right web sites.
WATCH HIM IN ACTION AND CRINGE
I hope, as you read the text of his blog posting, you'll consider the source and understand that members of the majority on the City Council and some of the commissions have followed his lead for years and still use his "guidance" when making very important decisions that affect each of us. Scary, indeed.
Incidentally, in his most current post Sunday The Mouth is now puffing about his "performance" in the 1974 movie, "The Second Coming Of Suzanne" - probably the worst movie I've ever seen, and I see a lot of movies! He tells us that "Richard Dreyfuss and I acted together in...". Yeah, well, I've seen all 19 seconds of his performance and not one of them was on-screen with Dreyfuss or any other actor of any significance. This is such a "great" movie that you can snatch up a used VCR of it on Amazon.com for under a buck. That's right - five minutes ago they had four copies for sale as low as $.96. Such a bargain! I feel ripped-off - I spent $1.24 several months ago for my collector's copy... This guy is just pathetic!
