Bending The Truth, Rig/Ramos Style

A friend forwarded the following image to me last night.  It was found in a Westside mailbox and announces a "meet and greet" with Jim Righeimer and (in small print) Lee Ramos.  Read the message in the brackets...

Then read the following image - the results of the 2004 Costa Mesa City Council election, where three candidates were chosen from a field of 12.  Note that Mirna Burciaga, at the time a Parks and Recreation Commissioner, finished in 7th position with nearly 5,800 votes - almost 7% of the total. 
Actually, I'm not surprised that these bozos made this kind of a mistake.  After all, Righeimer was still roosting in Fountain Valley and old Lee was apparently not interested in municipal affairs yet.  However, before they go tooting that "Hispanic" horn, they darn well better do some fact checking.  Of course, facts seem only to be impediments to them as they spread their falsehoods on the campaign trail.

NO ON 'O'!
And, while you're thinking about it, vote NO on Measure "O", the latest bogus charter scheme to be shoved down the voter's throats by Righeimer.  This one is worse than his hand-crafted charter two years ago.  This one, by including sections 104 and 806, permits the council do DO ANYTHING they wish, as long as it's not illegal.  That's way, way, way too much power in the hands of ANY city council, and particularly this one.

Remember in NOvember...  
NO "R"s... NO "O"!

Righiemer just took over the political machine built by Mansoor. So a vote for Ramos is a vote for the same supporters that voted for the anti- latino " rule of Law" scheme that deported local residents and split up families. One resident got deported after riding his bike on the wrong side of the street after playing guitar at the church on the corner of Placentia . His family was worried when Papa didn't come home. They had to scramble for rent money but the Shalimar community rallied around them to keep them in thier apartment. Now Ramos is pandering to them .

How very very sad that the sleepwalker allows himself to be packaged and sold like something off the ethnic food aisle.

Three of my four grandparents came to the USA from other countries. Two would definitely label the sleepwalker as "Stronzo."

I hate it when people who try to capitalize their ethnicity. Shame on Ramos and Righeimer for such a low stunt. Racism is sickening.
