Politics makes strange bedfellows

What keeps the roads busted up, the high rises popping up, the red ink from drying, the pension debt going into orbit and the average taxpayer home on council meeting nights? Is it the sleeping gas of the charlatans. Sure paint a school, give ’em a parade, bamboozle em with some fuzzy math, throw in a fireworks show and a movie night with a twinkle in their eyes and the rest is history.

Fullerton’s status quo is brought to you by Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom tonight so as we all enter the Outer Limits and the Twilight Zone, do not attempt to adjust your screen, as we control the horizontal, we control the vertical, and we control the brightness and we control all of you while you all remain asleep in the darkness.

They can blur the lines now but the lights are coming on, the jig is up, and change is in the air. Their phony smiles only have another 11 months to go. If these folks really loved Fullerton instead of the Fullerton city employees and the developers, you wouldn’t have the control arms busting off of the front ends of your cars, and we wouldn’t have the every other Tuesday night backroom deals with the lawsuits backing up like cargo ships in the port during a longshoreman’s strike out of Long Beach.

Yes they are all peas in a pod and cut from the same cloth where they all stand for big brother, big government, big government programs, big government tax and spend policies, big development, and not for you-the taxpayers and the residents.

    If Chaffee, Fitzpringle & Flory love Fullerton so much, why do they ignore the science on cell tower radiation and vote to install towers adjacent to schools?

    Do they just love the name “Fullerton”? Not the children?

    I didn’t realize you were actually running Joe. Good luck. Tough battle getting in. Have you consulted with Tony for some big funds?

      I am my own man RI. Tony and I have no connections. I am not for sale.

        But politics takes money. Big money. Especially to move your way in. Or do you not really have a chance, but doing it more for fun and to make a point?

        • #5 by "politics takes money" on November 12, 2015 - 12:55 pm

          Yes, it does when everything is for sale. For those that are willing to understand that and not play the game, Joe will be their candidate.

    I believe that we will ALL be better off with Joe Imbriano running in the election because you know that the subjects and topics that concern the families of Fullerton will be discussed.

    The only agenda that I’ve ever seen these current and previous city councils acting on, is the public employees that sponsor their city council elections, and the local business interests ALWAYS seeking to expand their businesses through the redevelopment agencies and schemes like College Town and Commonwealth Corridor to pack us in like sardines and further erode these pitiful roads we are forced to travel on daily because their doesn’t ever seem to be enough money left over after having to pay those exorbitant salaries and generous retirement benefits which allow them to “retire” at 50 years old.

    Did any one else notice ex-Fullerton Police Department spokesman, Andrew Goodrich’s, plump smiling mug next to city councilwomen Jennifer Fitzgerald and Jan Flory at the Improv in Brea?

    I find them all revolting.

  5. #8 by Anonymous on November 12, 2015 - 2:27 pm

    Fitzgerald and Flory are not only political kindred spirits but personal ones as well. The fact that one is a Republican and the other is a Democrat shows how little those labels really mean. As big supporters of the FPD and expecting big money from the FPOA, is it no wonder that they are best buds with the former FPD spokesperson.

    Careful running a campaign that is anti police. That doesn’t have a good record of success. Good, law abiding people of every community love their police and feel they deserve their pay and benefits. Make friends with the police, and you have a better chance of winning an election. That much is proven.

    • #10 by tool on November 12, 2015 - 5:00 pm

      Yes, let’s make friends w/cops that commit brutal murders, steal from high school employees, steal iPads while in the TSA line at the airport, . . . and on and on.

      Yes, let’s make friends with public servants that are driving our city into financial oblivion while we continue to foot the bill.

      Yes, let make friends with corrupt cops that will do nothing but continue to offend again.

      Make friends? Seems like you don’t like the threat of all of this coming out. Well, it’s coming out, one way or the other.

      Whose tool are you??????

      • #11 by Reality Is on November 12, 2015 - 9:44 pm

        Lol lol lol

        Yes keep your friends you have.

    Since when is holding everyone to the same standard of conduct including the cops, anti-cop.

    I guess RI is pro bad cops. When all good officers are ready willing and able to speak out about crooked, abusive cops, that is when it will be easier to trust and respect all cops. When fellow cops cover for their bad fellow office, which is the norm not the exception, it is prudent, rationale and smart to be skeptical of all cops until proven otherwise.

    • #13 by Too late RI on November 12, 2015 - 4:44 pm

      In RI’s twisted mind, holding cops to any standard is “anti-cop” as he just explains it away with “that’s reality.”

      Reality is is just here to try and manage things. Ha! It’s well beyond that.

    • #14 by Reality Is on November 12, 2015 - 9:47 pm

      Nope. You aren’t showing me bad cops. That’s my point. You are talking about things so old. Ancient. The cops can’t be disciplined anymore. They can’t be fired. It’s over.

      Tell me something new! Anything! Something!

      Please! I’m sick of you crying about old spilled milk.

      As the citizens of Fullerton will tell you, Fullerton PD is doing a great job. Prove to me otherwise.

    They may sport Love Fullerton tee-shirts but based on the voting records of Fitzgerald, Flory and Chaffee including the 6% raises they approved in the current round of city employee contracts, they must hate the city taxpayers. I was at those meetings and I can’t remember one time that any of those three council members even mentioned the taxpayers or the negative impact these agreements will have on our already 2.8 million dollar deficits over the next two years. I have stated for the last 5 years that the only way to solve our financial problems is to lower the percentage of our General Fund that goes exclusively to salaries and benefits down from 80%. (Remember that when Detroit filed for bankruptcy a few years ago, its’ general fund spent 79% for salaries and benefits.) Yet they have ignored my warnings and concerns, year after year after year. The Federal Reserve has not wanted to raise the federal funds rate from 0% so far this year in part because inflation has been running way below their target of 2%. Yet they are voting to give Fullerton employees 6% raises next year. Probably less than 100 city employees are also residents of Fullerton and they get the total support of those 3 council members while the other 140,000 residents get to read their “I Love Fullerton” tee-shirts. It certainly sounds to me that the Fullerton taxpayers are getting the short end of the deal as usual.

    • #16 by Reality Is on November 13, 2015 - 11:17 pm

      6% in one year? Or 2% a year? I have no issue with 2% raises for employees around the country each year. Simple cola raise.
