Now, Back To Business

OK, my arm hurts
from patting my self on the back for being named Best Blog for 2008 by the OC Weekly last week, so it's time to get back to business. I've had a tough time trying to get my swollen head through doorways this weekend.

Your Neighbor, the grumpy old fella who operates the CM Press,
seems determined to make illegal immigration a big issue this election season. Apparently he has absolutely no shame, because he has announced with his last couple posts that he intends to provide stories of police officers allegedly murdered by illegal aliens as part of his campaign push to get his chosen three elected.

He apparently thinks it's just fine to dump gasoline on this fire to enhance the chances of his chosen troika in the election in a couple weeks. Despicable!

Now, you need to understand that I, too, think the death of any person is tragic. I'm a pro-cop guy - my best friend was a cop for more than three decades and I have many friends in law enforcement - so I detest any instance of a law enforcement officer losing his or her life, regardless whether the perpetrator is an illegal alien or not.


His guy apparently things every ill in our society ca
n be directly traced to the illegal aliens among us. Or, maybe it's just because he's focusing on the Latino illegal aliens - or aliens in general - that makes his presumed outrage so suspect.


I've watche
d him in action for nearly a decade now and understand his underlying motivation. He's a racist, pure and simple, and will use any subterfuge to disenfranchise and discomfort the non-white population among us. The list of his "accomplishments" toward that end is too long to write here again.

I don't think the three men he vociferously supports for City Council this year - Jim Righeimer, Gary Monahan and Eric Bever - are necessarily racists. However, history has demonstrated for us that he supports only those people for seats on the city council that he believes he can influence with his insidious rhetoric. That's a shame, since that shadow hanging over them may make actio
ns they might take in the future suspect.


There are three more City Council Candidate Forums on tap before the election on November 4th. The next one is Wednesday evening, October 15th, at City Hall in the City Council Chambers. This event is hosted by the Costa Mesa Chamber of Commerce and runs from 6-9 pm. This will be televised live on CMTV and replayed on tape later.

The next one is next week, on Wednesday, October 22nd at the Halecrest Community Center, 3107 Killybrooke Lane, from 6:30-9 pm. It is jointly hosted by the Halecrest/Hall of Fame Community Association and the Mesa Del Mar Homeowners Association.

The final event will be held on Tuesday, October 28th at 6 pm at the Presbyterian Church of the Covenant, 2850 Fairview Road between Costa Mesa High School and The Farm Sports Complex.

By the time these events have been completed every candidate will have had ample opportunity to convince you of their worthiness, or lack thereof, for office. Remember, who you hang out with and who influences you is an important consideration in any election.

Help out those of us who don't know much about local politics other than that Mansoor is a race-baiting little Napoleon. And who are the three most likely (and worthy) to beat his chosen cadre?

For Millard, Illegal Immigration and Gangs are always a big issue. This election just affords him the opportunity to be all the more vociferous!

robert, sadly, most of the other candidates are too new and unknown. Katrina Foley is the strongest of the six other candidates. She's smart and knows how to run a good campaign. Chris Bunyan ran last time and finished last. He's campaigning harder this time. Bill Sneen is working as hard as any and has attempted to get up to speed on important issues by interviewing many city officials and former officials. All three are solid citizens with only the well-being of our city in mind.

Keep in mind the Millard troika consists of Bever, a sitting mayor; Monahan, a three term former councilman and mayor and Righeimer, who is joined at the hip with Dana Rohrabacher and the other with Scott Baugh - President of the OC GOP. They are not necessarily running as a slate, but the OC GOP has placed them as a team on it's mailers. Tough battle for outsiders.

Wow, quite the judgment from someone who fancies themselves an intellectual, even a low-octane one.

How did you come up with your opinion that Mansoor "is a race-baiting little Napoleon?" Let's try to provide some fact, apply a little "academic" treatment, if you can.

The LAST thing Costa Mesa needs is more racial strife born of assumption and alleged motivations.

I agree with Rob!

Little Napoleon is beyond the pale here Robert! Mansoor is easily taller than I am! :)

Of course 90% of Costa Mesans are taller than I am.

Everyone except Monahan that is...

(OK, Sorry, couldn't resist! I don't get to pick on people shorter than me very often!)
