IT WAS SAID AGAIN TODAY…

If I wasn’t so insistent the Town would follow the law. That is pure unadulterated Bull Crap. The fact that Rhett and Tanja don’t know anything but how to break the law speaks volumes of the character of these two worthless Town Council members.

Over the next month and a half, before the town election, I will be highlighting some of Rhett and Tonja’s shortfalls as human beings. One is a failed attorney, soon to be reported to the Florida Bar for not promoting a lawful town, and the other is a WELFARE queen. Neither one of them would know the constitution or the town charter if it fell out of tree on their heads.

I will not be supporting any candidate to Town Council but I am eminently opposed to either Rhett or Tonja being re-elected. Maybe someone worthwhile will run. I for one don’t care who runs I AM AGAINST THE EGOMANANICAL DUO AND WILL RESIST EACH OF THEM WITH MY LAST ACT .

Come to the Council meeting 14 March and see for yourself who is right with the law and who steps around the law to serve their own purposes.

Then maybe you won’t say that it is all my fault.

WHO AND WHAT AM I

I just recently turned 70
I used to think I was just a regular guy, but . . . I was born white, which now, whether I like it or not, makes me a racist.

 

I am a fiscal and moral conservative, which by today’s standards, makes me a fascist.

 

I am heterosexual, which according to gay folks, now makes me a homophobic.

 

I am non-union, which makes me a traitor to the working class and an ally of big business.

 

I am a Christian, which now labels me as an infidel.

 

I believe in the 2nd Amendment, and own & carry guns which now makes me a member of the vast gun lobby.

I am older than 65, which makes me a useless old man.

 

I think and I reason, therefore I doubt much that the main stream media tells me, which must make me a reactionary.

 

I am proud of my heritage and our inclusive American culture, which makes me a xenophobe.

 

I value my safety and that of my family and I appreciate the police and the legal system, which makes me a right-wing extremist.

 

I believe in hard work, fair play, and fair compensation according to each individual’s merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.

 

I believe in the defense and protection of the homeland for and by all citizens, which now makes me a militant.

 

Now, a sick old woman said that I and my like friends are a basket of deplorables.

 

Please help me come to terms with the new me . . . because I’m just not sure who I am anymore!

I would like to thank all my friends for sticking with me through
these abrupt, new found changes in my life and my thinking!

 

I just can’t imagine or understand what’s happened to me so quickly!

 

Funny . . . it’s all just taken place over the last 7 or 8 years!

 

As if all this crap wasn’t enough to deal with, I’m now afraid to go into either restroom!

 

Nostalgia

Arguing with the Left is like playing Chess with a Pigeon, even if you win, the bird craps on the board and struts around like it’s the champion

How’s This For Nostalgia?

All the girls had ugly gym uniforms? And wore tennis shoes not $200 Nike’s!


It took three minutes for the TV to warm up?


Nobody owned a purebred dog?


When a quarter was a decent allowance?


You’d reach into a muddy gutter for a  penny?



Your Mom wore nylons that came in two pieces?


You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped, without asking, all for free, every time? And you didn’t pay for air? And, you got trading stamps to boot?


Laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box?


It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents?


They threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed… and they did it!


When a 57 Chevy was everyone’s dream car…to cruise, peel out, lay rubber or watch submarine races, and people went  steady?


No one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition, and the doors were never locked?


Lying on your back in the grass with your friends… and saying things like, ‘That cloud looks like a… ‘?


Playing baseball with no adults to help kids with the rules of the game?


Stuff from the store came without safety caps and hermetic seals because no one had yet tried to poison a perfect stranger…


And with all our progress, don’t you just wish, just  once, you could slip back in time and savor the slower pace, and share it with the children of today.


When being sent to the principal’s office was nothing compared to the fate that awaited the student at home?

Basically we were in fear for our lives, but it wasn’t because of drive-by shootings, drugs, gangs, etc. Our parents and grandparents were a much bigger threat! But we survived because their love was greater than the threat.

And our summers were filled with bike rides, Hula Hoops, and visits to the pool, and eating Kool-Aid powder with sugar.
Didn’t that feel good, just to go back and say, ‘Yeah, I remember that’?

I am sharing this with you today because it ended with a Double Dog Dare to pass it on… To remember what a Double Dog Dare is, read on… And remember that the perfect age is somewhere between old enough to know better and too young to care.

Send  this on to someone who can still remember Howdy Doody and The Peanut Gallery, the Lone Ranger, The Shadow Knows, Nellie Bell , Roy and Dale, Trigger and Buttermilk.


How  Many Of These Do You Remember?
Candy cigarettes…

Wax Coke-shaped bottles with colored sugar water inside…


Soda pop machines that dispensed glass bottles…

Coffee shops with Table Side Jukeboxes…

Blackjack, Clove and Teaberry chewing gum…


Home milk delivery in glass bottles with cardboard stoppers…


Newsreels before the movie

Telephone numbers with a word prefix…( Yukon 2-601). Party lines…


Peashooters…


Hi-Fi’s  & 45 RPM records…


78 RPM records…


Green  Stamps…



Mimeograph paper…


The Fort Apache Play Set…

Do You Remember a Time When Decisions were made by going…
‘eeny-meeny-miney-moe’?

Mistakes were corrected by simply exclaiming, ‘Do Over!’?

‘Race issue’ meant arguing about who ran the fastest?


Catching The Fireflies Could Happily Occupy An Entire Evening?



It wasn’t odd to have two or three ‘Best
Friends’…

Having a Weapon in School meant being caught with a Slingshot?


Saturday morning cartoons weren’t 30-minute commercials for action figures?


‘Oly-oly-oxen-free’ made perfect sense?

Spinning around, getting dizzy, and falling down was cause for giggles?


The Worst Embarrassment was being picked last for a team?


War was a card game?


Baseball cards in the spokes transformed any bike into a motorcycle?

Taking drugs meant orange flavored chewable aspirin?


Water balloons were the ultimate weapon?


If you can remember most or all of these, Then You Have Lived!!!!!!!

Pass  this on to anyone who may need a break from their ‘Grown-Up’ Life…
I  Double-Dog-Dare-Ya!

CARVER SCHOOL…

http://www.floridajobs.org/docs/default-source/2015-community-development/community-economic-development/whitespringsassetmapping.pdf?sfvrsn=2

The Carver School is owned by the Town and once was a black segregated school built in 1906. The building is uninhabitable and contains asbestos. However, the property away from the building is now used to host the Annual May Day Festival which is put together by committee volunteers and donations  Additionally, the site was proposed as a potential location for a community storm shelter or a multipurpose center, which could also include a charter school.

The Minutes where the Carver School was discussed in one matter or another

Pam Tomlinson wished to charge Nicole Williams $150 .  Since that time I have reviewed the various written meeting minutes and have mention of the Carver School in the following Documents:  Joe has requested the recordings for these meetings.  P.S. The recordings are $3.00 each so obviously it must take Pam a tremendous amount of time in which she can charge a citizen a large sum.  That’s White Springs!  Corrupt as Hell.

WS Town Council first budget hearing minutes, Thursday, September 3, 2015   5:30 P.M.

Comments on the budget by the Town Mnager:  Shirley heath………”In the future the Town will need to address the Veteran’s Park, Community Center repairs, Carver School, Sidewalks, Police Storage, Fire Department Equipment and the possibility of Curtis Johnson going full-time.”

Apparently it has always been the intent of the Council to demolish the Carver School without discussion with the Black Community.

White Springs, FL  32096

 

Mayor Bullard and Town Manager Tebo:

Protest of Town’s Abuse of Rule 73C-23,0041 Application Process

And Administrative Requirements in Application to FFY 2016

DEO Small Cities CDBG Program for Neighborhood Revitalization Project

 

We are writing to protest your abuse of Rule 73C-23.0041, Florida Administrative Code as applied to White Springs’ application under the Department of Economic Opportunity FFY 2016 Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program for a neighborhood revitalization project.

As you are well aware, the application process requires that you hold at least two public hearings and that both public hearings be given proper public notice as defined in subsection 73C-23.0031 (35), F.A.C.  Rather than provide public notice (of both meetings) to the citizens of White Springs through notice in the Jasper News and through postings on the town bulletin boards at Town Hall and across the street from the U.S. Post Office (in front of the old volunteer fire department), you chose to advertise in the Gainesville Sun and the Lake City Reporter.  We believe you chose to deviate from long-standing community norms (and program requirements) in a deliberate effort to reduce and/or eliminate opportunities for citizen input, comments and views that are opposed to your project – contrary to the intent of public notice.

In this letter, we will address the required first public hearing.  You advertised the first public hearing on December 29, 2016 in the Gainesville Sun.  The Circulation Director for the Sun reports “we have three subscribers in that area (zip code 32096) and sell an average of 20 papers Monday-Saturday in the retail outlets and 30 on Sunday Of those three subscribers, only one lives in the Town of White Springs; the other two live in Hamilton County.  In addition, rather than post topic-specific notice (CDBG First Public Hearing) of the first public hearing on the Town’s two bulletin boards, as has been municipal practice in the past, you chose to position notice as new business on the Town Council Agenda which was posted on the town bulletin boards on Friday, January 6, 2017 before the Council Meeting on Tuesday, January 10, 2017 – thereby violating the 5 day notice rule.

Why this conscious effort to reduce community awareness, participation and discussion of the project?   We believe the answer lies on PG-5 of the application.  The CDBG application, Application Profile, Table G-1, asks under the heading of “Historic Preservation”, “Will the project impact a building, public improvement or planned open space that is 50 or more years old?  If yes, documentation must be provided in Appendix L of Part 9?  You checked “No” in the answer to this question – contrary to the truth.

In fact, this project will drastically and forever impact the historic George Washington Carver School, constructed in the mid to late 1940’2. A critical milestone of the overall project is to “demolish and remove all those buildings currently referred to as Old Carver School….”.  In response to your request for in-kind support of this project, Hamilton County has agreed to perform “the demolition and clearing of the property,” estimated at a value of $160,700.  The Old Carver School is the core of what remains as evidence of Black History in White Springs.  During previous Council Meetings, Council Member Jefferson promised to hold public meetings for the express purpose of discussing and developing a consensus on a plan to address the Old Carver School property.  He failed to do so, and in fact, said at the Council Meeting on February 14, that he had talked to people and all were good with your proposed project for the Carver site. Council Member Jefferson’s statement of personal conversations is not the same as conducting an actual public noticed community meeting to elicit, discuss and modify a plan that addresses the range of views in our community.  To submit this application during Black History Month adds insult to injury.

Your lack of honesty in completing the CDBG application brings dishonor to the entire White Springs community.  Your arrogance and total disregard for the application process and administrative requirements speaks to your lack of respect for federal, state, county and municipal laws – you hold yourselves above the law.  Your lack of interest in the true needs of the community is disheartening and your confrontational approach when dealing with citizens who disagree with you has led to a demoralized citizenry.

Respectfully Submitted

FAKE NEWS BUT HILARIOUS

PRESIDENT TRUMP ANNOUNCES SALE OF CALIFORNIA TO MEXICO
WASHINGTON (AP) – at 12:15pm today President Trump disclosed that he has reached an agreement with Enrique Pena Nieto, President of Mexico, which provides for the sale of substantially all of the State of California to the country of Mexico.  President Trump noted that this deal, which he claims “is his largest real estate deal ever” is a win-win for everyone involved.  One of the benefits he says he will highlight during a prime time address from the oval office later this evening, will include using the proceeds received by the US from Mexico to
1) pay for the Wall (fulfilling yet another campaign promise), a wall which will now include the length of the eastern border of California,
2) fund all the infrastructure spending in the remaining 49 states and
3) pay to relocate the 67 Republicans that currently reside in California.
He also noted that Federal money saved from the reduction of California citizens on US social programs will allow those social programs to be cash positive in less than 3 years.
Mexican President Nieto announced that he has already introduced a bill to the Mexican Congress asking to change his country’s name to MexiCal.
Other benefits President Trump intends to discuss during this evening’s prime time address include:
California will now be able to act as a sanctuary state within MexiCal noting that there is much more room for the refugees who will find the climate in the State of California more desirable than the climate in US cities such as NYC, Detroit or Chicago.
The elimination of the existing boarder between Mexico and California will allow drugs to flow more freely between Mexico and the users in Hollywood.  Drug tunnel diggers at the Tijuana border will now be able to use their skills to dig tunnels under Los Angeles to help ease congestion in that city and allow rioters to move about the city’s universities more freely
The U.S. taxpayer will no longer be on the hook for any future disaster relief required once the next megaquake hits California.
The space in the Capitol and other DC buildings vacated by representatives of California will be fumigated and turned into “time-out rooms” for the press as well as Liberty Centers where US citizens can meet with their congressmen to discuss the pursuit of economic freedom.
Nancy Pelosi released a statement stating that she looks forward to making the Mexican President’s life miserable and prefers the year round weather in Mexico City to that of DC.  Her office has already announced a schedule of fund raising activities for what is believed to be an upcoming campaign to run for President of MexiCal.
Papers released along with Trump’s statement reveal that a newly incorporated real estate company, pmurT, Inc., which was intimately involved in the deal discussions, will receive a broker fee of $25 billion on the California sale.  An anonymous pmurT, Inc. representative has revealed that the profits on the deal are HUGE and will be used to purchase, develop and convert all abandoned US Federal facilities in California into special high end retreats and resorts which will assist California residents with managing their euphoria and transition into the nanny state they have so long desired to be.
The exact northern border of the new MexiCal is still under negotiation.  Apparently the White House is concerned that certain members of congress may be unwilling to give up California’s wine country and are suggesting that the northern boarder align with the north end of the Golden Gate Bridge.
California residents will be issued special blue cards to cross the border into the US so that the total number of California liberals entering the US can be tracked and at any point in time not exceed predetermined levels.   Residents that remain in California after the effective date of the sale will not be allowed to seek refugee status in the US in the future.
Mexican President Nieto stated he is thrilled with the deal and is looking forward to declaring Spanish the national language for his newly acquired territory and opening SSL (Spanish as a second language) schools throughout California.  He also noted that funding for the transaction would come from the Mexican drug cartels, which have agreed to provide low interest loans to Mexico so long as they are allowed to move their cash out of Switzerland and the Cayman Islands back into Mexico tax free. He also said he considers the fact that a Disney park will now be located within his country an added bonus.
White House representatives refused to confirm rumors that a similar deal was in the works for the sale of Northeastern states from NY through Maine, to Canada.
President Trump wrapped up his statement stating, “this deal is HUGE and will help Make America, albeit a little smaller, Great Again
