David Vitter endorses Giuliani

Senator Vitter has joined the Giuliani Presidential campaign as the Southern Regional Chair.

Rudy's qualifications for President, in my opinion, are credible. Althought his philosophical leanings are quite liberal for the Republican party, Rudy has to win over the conservatives in the south to have a winable campaign. If he promises to follow the parties philosophies and not his own he can win over the conservative religious south. This I believe, will be the only way to truly win the vote. His personal life may bring up a few points of interest but after the Clinton years, can one really introduce Rudy's rather tame lifestyle? After all what is the definition of "is"?

Having personally met Mr. Giuliani, I found him to be both personable and cordial. His energy is postive and focused. This is not to be consrewed as a personal endorsement, as I have not met (so far) any of the other possible or declared candidates. More to come ....

I'm a loyal democrat but can we just all agree on McCain?

Joe Ray Bob, Jr. said...

I am a registered Democrat too, but I am probably going to vote for a Republican. I was leaning toward Giuliani, but I want to see what Fred Thompson is going to do. If he decides to run, I want to look at his record and then make my final decision.

Anonymous said...

Probably a mistake on Vitter's part. I don't see Rudy getting the conservative vote, but his strategy might be yo get a few Vitters and hope the South will fall in line with those endorsements.

From what I've read the conservative vote isn't satisfied with any of the leading contenders, and want another option.

With that being said, George Allen was a shoe-in for the nomination (and eventual pres. in Nov), that is why the media went hogwild to knock him off over "macaca."

Before 9/11 Rudy was a very unpopular mayor due to his personal life. The religious right will never allow him to get the nomination. Remember, the base votes in primaries.

True, but if we get attacked again who would you rather be in command?

Only Rudy has proven he has the managment skills necessary.

We are living in a different time than a few years ago when we had the luxury of discarding leaders due to mistakes in their personal lives or were a tad more liberal socially than the average bear. We must concentrate on who has the wherewithall to be strong during assaults from terrorists and the far left.

Greg Aymond said...

Fred Thompson is has just the credentials we need. A tough prosecutor, on Law and Order, and a great Naval officer, in Hunt for Red October.
Seriously, I want to study him more, because the last Hollywood actor we had for president turned out great.
Read the short biography of Thompson at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fred_Dalton_Thompson. A former prosecutor and US Senator, he has led an interesting life.

So now we get it. You all consider yourselves higher beings who can determine what is right and what is wrong.

It is not okay to expose one of your own AKA Jan Haworth. However, it is okay to viciously attack and lie on anyone else that you dislike or disagree with.

This blog is full of hateful, disgusting conversations that is appalling to civilize people who actually want to real pertinent facts.

You discuss paternity, family histories, and personal relationships. You call people names such as cripple, klansman, racist, liar, concubine, rattlesnake, thief, pig, and even wanted to "tar and feather" one of the commenters.

BUT NOW you want to right about what is fair and what is not.

Add LOSER to the list of names! LOSERS!

The Alexandria City Council meeting turned into a free for all with attorney Bridget Brown proclaiming that Roy has victimized her due to her race (she's says she is black) and promptly getting her ass kicked by our African American City Attorney declaring Brown to be factually and legally in complete error and chiding her for shamelessly playing the race card. She ain't bullying Ned, Albin and Delores - she's has been revealed for her true (untrue) self. Myron, her gaurdian angel, ain't in charge no mo.

I'm sorry but I really don't know if you are stupid or not. The answer to the second question is that there was the ultimate showdown at today's council meeting featuring a cameo appearance by Bridget and they buried her and put the council back in it's place. Those guys, particularly Lawson, are so accustomed to getting away with their intimidation bullshit that they are obviously stunned by the resolve of the administration and their fair, reasonable, and informed application of the law. I voted for Roy but every day I am more proud of my choice.

3) if you dont have anything relevant to say then stfu.

Anonymous said...

Greg reports that Bridget was taken off of the Cleco case because of her lack of qualifications (Greg is never right but always certain) but in fact, Chuck said that she was removed because her actions and conduct were actually in opposition to her client's representation and interests. She and Sanders have always acted in their own self-interest at the direction of the council (Myron Lawson, their landlord and benefactor). Bridget got the job originally because of her race and had no problem with that at all. She loves the race card and ignores the fact that everything she has is because of her race and gender. Sooner or later, that has to wear out. The council being what it is, it took a black administration official to be able to call her on it.

The statement about Greg's chronic misinformation was not about Brown's qualifications (though you would be hard-pressed to find a lawyer that didn't consider Brown to be far superior to Aymond) but about the city's declared reason for Brown's removal from the Cleco case. That is the key issue. Aymond is just trashing Brown because he thinks he can get away with it.

when is a "problem" with minorities not racist? i believe that the area has been blurred in such a way that it confuses the public, thus allowing for certain players to exploit the situation. will this ever change. will the black community ever realize that there are black elected officials that use race/discrimination to advance their own agenda. is that admired by some blacks in that it could be thought of as a "you gotta get yours" philosophy?

people who unfairly play the race card and get called on it discredit cases when racial discrimination is justifiable.

Talk about a double standard: how is this Davis woman permitted to remain at the Alexandria Housing Authority after receiving that audit report. That woman should be fired, sued, and probably arrested. Who is on the AHA Board? I think they are paying for some bad legal advice (probably over $400,000 worth). Is that overpaid outfit the one that Kelvin Sander's wife "consulted" for?

The short answer appears to be that Housing Authority Executive Director Wanda Hall Davis is the sister of Jeff Hall.

I think the days of yelling racism, are soon to be a recent memory. As the Hispanic community quietly builds their numbers across the US, the black minority will become an even smaller minority, and therefore less vocal.

Blacks will have less time to prove their "self worth" as the new generation of immigrants will seek a place in our professional communities.

If the next city attorney is a Hispanic, how do you yell racism at that point?? And if a city starts to look as much like Alberto Gonzalez as BB, few people will be moved by demands to involve more minorities.

Anonymous said...

Blacks will always scream racism.

Those not desiring to achieve have to have something to blame their status on. Comparing Hispanics to Blacks one can readily see the difference in desires for education, improvement of lifestyle, the desire to better themselvews, etc. The excuse used by Blacks to explain the Hispanics success is that they were never slaves. What a joke.

Blacks are no longer "the" major minority group in the United States so the tactics to insure that they stay "the" minority is to enact legislation proclaiming them "the minority."

Since Hispanics have already surpassed the Blacks as the minority that would cause one to believe Blacks are just another equal group in this wonderful melting pot call The United States of America. Being equal would not justify special social efforts to "pay them" for their status and previous injustices committed against there forefathers. Todays Black has no excuse for their status other than "The Road Less Traveled."

Anonymous said...

I'm not saying they won't scream racism, it's just that they will be on shaky grounds by their numbers and by history.

Blacks were never enslaved in this country by Hispanics, and there are already more Hispanics in the US than blacks. It is only a VERY short time before the same thing occurs in Cenla.

So exactly who would they yell racism to? Each other? The white and Hispanic (and possibly asian) communities will keep on trucking without them.

Sorta like a child yelling for candy in a grocery store. Only mama cares. Everybody else just moves on around them to the checkout line.

Anonymous said...

good points.

the following is confusing but valid...i think.

since "minority" and "majority" are both relative terms, depending on who the said group is comparing themselves to, isn't it safe to say that if the blacks in america consider themselves a minority even though they are now gaining more of a "majority" status that they could, under the idea of relativity, be the minority? that is, since they have the platform that enables this particular rhetoric.

it now becomes a paradox.

i think that as long as the media is primarily liberal and blacks are the democrat voter base that the idea of blacks always being a minoity will stay prevalent; no matter what the actual minority believes.

I think that is just about the best explanation I have seen. Exactly the idea I was trying to convey.

The perception, due to white guilt, the actual policy of slavery in which only one group of people were bought and sold as chattel, the War alledgedly fought to end the practice and politics have all tended, since the 1860's to view the Black as the minority. Demographics should show Blacks and Hispanic populations are growing at a far greater rate than the whites. However the Hispanics will always be viewed as illegals and the Blacks as the minority.

Please don't misinterpret my remarks as painting with a broad brush. I can name numerous Blacks that are aoutstanding contributors to society and are needed role models. However there is a tremendous amount of work needing to be done to instill work ethics, morals, education and values to a tremendously large portion of the Black population.

Typically you do not see this lack of two-parent families, tendency towards criminality and in general noncontribution to the betterment of the group with Hispanics. In fact the number of whites adopting this life style (wiggers) is becoming alarming. Who will, in the future, lead this great country of ours?

The problem with the black bloc vote for dems is this:

Do they ostracize whites, hispanics, and asians who then form a superparty? Unbeatable at the polls?

Or will the dems abandon the blacks (that they have so casually taken for granted) so that they can attract a cross-section of new Americans. Due in part that whites tend to favor repubs, with blacks balancing out the voting gap. If Hispanics/asians are to be accepted in their part, then traditional minority "appoinments" will have to be spread around.

What will blacks do? vote repub?
Nope, just yell and scream to deaf ears, on both sides of the aisle.

That is why I see that the end of crying foul is soon to come.

While we are on the subject, my family owned slaves and yet I cannot seem to experience this white man's burden thing or suffer any guilt. Am I abnormal? Or could it be that I did not participate?Beside that, it appears that many white folk never had any connection with the practice as a large number of European immigrants were used as cheap labor also.

Kelvin ran rough-shod over the city right in front of Ned (who may or may not have known) and Albin, who was paid handsomely to watch the store. Bridget says that Kelvin controlled Albin by knowing all of Albin's deals and misdeals, threatening to report him to the bar, etc. and as a result, Albin was afraid to call Kelvin on his antics. It was (is) all about keeping Myron happy. Roy had to assert control out of the gate or end up like his predecessor(s). I don't know if that's a mole or a doormat.

What would you have done if the Mayor, his wife, and many many other town leaders came to you and coaxed you into running for mayor or all would be lost? She is qualified and that is all that should matter but the press and the Roy camp twisted information to make respectable lady out to be a liar and theif. That is wrong.

I find it very interesting that GAEDA is pondering purchasing the Cavalier Motel for 1.2 or 1.5 Million for a site that is approximately 1.2 acres seems a bit pricey but the board can act since it is insulated from the voters by the very nature of its construcion. Just as it was insulated as it passed the room fee imposed on every hotel/motel in the city limits. Watch closely as the animal that the council has created comes to life and spreads its tentacles and you folks have no input as to GAEDA's behavior. I would suggest killing it while yet in its infancy or suffer the later as it ages.

Watch out for GAEDA's involvement. They have been given the power to tax without citizens voting on their actions by the very nature of their organization. Is it fair to tax (room fee) all hotels/motels then use the funding to support facilities in direct competition with the ones they tax? And how does that affect the competitive edge of the ones they tax? There needs to be a discussion on the dynamics and outcomes of GAEDA's existence.

You misuderstand what was said and the difference with Bridget having a contract to provide legal services to Alexandria, as needed, like 2 dozen other law firms, and Bridget representing the city in the Cleco litigation. What lawyers are assigned to what cases is the exclusive provtnce of the city attorney. Chuck says that as long as he is city attorney, Bridget will not represent the city in legal matters. Can the council pay her $5000 to consult on their water park or to cater their snacks, probably so, until they are indicted, and she can advise the council on legal issues, but not as an attorney for the city. She won't have access to any inside info or know what is happening until Chuck lets the council know what's going on. I am also told that the story of how Bridget got into the Cleco related litigation and her different affilliations with the case thru Mr. Lawson, is an interesting story that she would not want the mayor to relate to the state bar. I think this showdown has been coming for quite some time and Bridget will exercise a high level of discretion because the truth of this matter is not a big secret and the truth is not her friend. I doubt she thinks this cleco payoff is worth her license, but who knows.

AND-
Yes, she will still get her 10%, UNLESS the COUNCIL passes and ordinance to dissolve her contract.


Lawyers are prohibited from recovering a fee for which they did not work. If Chuck does not allow her to participate in the remainder of the Cleco case, she cannot receive her entire 10%. It is doubtful that she was doing any real substantive work on the case anyway, and simply got in to ride the coattails of the BR lawyers, and reap a windfall fee, simply due to her connections with the counsel. You can bet Jacques and Chuck know this, and, as lawyers, they are obligated to report her if she receives and unearned fee.

I would be interested to know why Mr. Hobbs KNOWS BB was not involved in the matter perviously mentioned. Is this mild mannered, unassuming persona really the mastermind that Mr. Lawson is oft accused of being? Only the shadow knows.

Lawson was smart enough (and Fowler was stupid enough) to get Fowler to bring up the Kelvin deal. I am told that later, Fowler whined to the administration that he had no idea that he was putting a knife thru their heart. Harry appears to go along but I doubt they absolutely control him. Lawson obviously has complete control over Fowler.

from today's Town Talk:

Race is not an issue
Your Mail

I am writing in response to Wednesday's article reporting Bridget Brown's actions at the most recent Alexandria City Council meeting. As such, I felt compelled to write when I read Brown "hinted" her firing from the city coffers was based upon "racism."

I have worked with and against Alexandria city attorney Charles "Chuck" Johnson for the past decade. Moreover, I have come to know Mr. Johnson's family as I worked for and with his father at the Alexandria Police Department before attending law school.

ADVERTISEMENT

I feel confident that I can assure you that unlike others involved Johnson would never rely upon nor would he tolerate racism at any level of his office as the city attorney. I have seen Chuck confront racism which was at times working for him and at other times against him. In every case, I have seen him (to quote Spike Lee) "do the right thing."

In short, I challenge you to ask anyone who knows all parties involved what the measure of each would be if weighed by the scale of integrity. I trust you would not find Johnson's measure wanting.

I can see where you would think I'm Glenn but I'm not. I'm not in love with Glen or his son Ronnie. You know Ronnie, who was allegedly fired from Neblett, Beard & Arsonault for stealing cases while working for the firm and handling them on the side.
My only point is that little lance wants to be a professional politician. Haven't we had enough career politicians?
The penescostal cult has put the squeeze on the court house gang to put little lance in office. His signs have popped up in the yards of the congregation and the court house connected. More power to him. But the voters need to look beyond the names of support per the squeeze and decide if they really want to vote for another professional politician.
I'd like to see a successful Republican buisnessman who is not a professional politician run. Thats all. Lance is a Republican and I hope the local Repubicans do not get drawn into sending a professional politician to Baton Rouge for the sake of a win.
This is suppose to be a Republican blog that "runs down" the opposition. Maybe the local Republicans should take a close look at one of their own. Thats all I'm saying.

Now isn't this interesting. The high school debate team has come to the rescue of lance. Nobody is faulting poor lance over who his daddy is,what his dad does or anything else. The point is that young lance and for that matter his older brother chris, have only one goal in life, to run for political office. Work, build a business, become a successful attorney, nope, just win elections. Now if that is not the definition of a professional politician, what is? My point is simply that lance has his support not by his accomplishments but because of his daddy's power.
Oh, and by the way, David Duke was a republican. I seem to recall the 11th commandment does have exceptions. Now don't get stirred up, I'm not saying lance is anything like david duke. I'm just pointing out that it's ok to break the 11th commandment once in a while.
Now, like GA Mangum, I'm going into retirement and leaving this fight to Lance's political camp and Beards camp. I have no dog in this hunt. Just expressed an observation. Not advice 12:17PM. If I was giving advice I suggest you remain a little more open minded. The 11th commandment thing is a little bull headed. And can lead to absurd results.

GAEDA's website states that it was created by "La. R.S. 33:2740.55 (Act no. 1217 of the 2003". However, that it the wrong statute. R.S. 33:2740 deals with another city and has a different Act number. The Aleandria district was actually created by R.S.33:2740.46, which is Act 1217.
Besides its Website, what else does GAEDA get wrong? One questions pops to mind. Why, although it has exporopriation power, which requires payment similar to fair market value is GAEDA instead going to by a piece of property, accessed at approimately $75,000, for between half a million and a million dollars. Who owns that old motel?

Beads: To Alexandria Mayor Jacques M. Roy for requiring his administration and the City Council to adhere to the city charter. This is new thinking for many people who have been hired or elected to do the city's business, and not everyone is happy about it. They may not be kicking and screaming, but some are visibly shaken and back on their heels. Hang tough, Mayor Roy. On this matter, you are leading -- and pushing and pulling -- in the right direction.

Boos: To Bridgett Brown, a capable attorney who was known for her stylish "repli-car" and appropriate vanity license plate and is now known for "playing the race card." She dealt it last week during an outburst directed at Alexandria Mayor Jacques Roy, City Attorney Charles Johnson and most of the City Council. The city administration had dropped Brown from its team of attorneys who are trying to prove allegations that Cleco Corp. cheated the city. Those allegations -- denied by Cleco -- have become a cottage industry for attorneys from here to Baton Rouge and beyond. They also triggered some truly bizarre behavior on the part of City Hall and the City Council during the final few years of Ned Randolph's tenure as mayor. Roy, who took office in December, has his hands full with the residual mess. So, too, does his city attorney. Neither wants to deal with in-fighting and irrelevant bickering, so they dropped Brown. Look for this one to land in court.

Beads: To the many good people of Alexandria and beyond who recognize that fighting about race is a losing proposition. Fight for what's right -- for everyone -- and good things will happen.

Anonymous said...

years ago, barbara stephenson was a realtor. now she is back to teaching school. the guy that talked about assessed value really pulled one over kalb. the tax assessed value is never actually the free market value. commercial buildings are usually assessed at 15% of their value-- which puts the fair market around $500,000. from the louisiana tax assessor's office--

What Is The Relationship Between Market Value And Assessed Value For Property In Louisiana?

In Louisiana, the classification of property subject to ad valorem taxation and the percentage of fair market value applicable to each classification for the purpose of determining assessed value are as follows:
Classifications
Percentage
Land
10%
Improvements for Residential
10%
Improvements for Commercial
15%
Business Movable Property (Personal)
15%
Public Service (Excluding Land)
25%

Bona fide agricultural, horticultural, marsh and timberlands as defined by Revenue Statues shall be assessed for tax purposes at 10% of use value rather than market value. The Louisiana Tax Commission sets these values.

On the commentary about assesor property values - where did you do your research? And do you really believe that 1.2 acres on Masonic Drive with buildings of questionable value is worth the numbers that were being bandied about? Have coffee with any realtor and get their opinion.

Anonymous said...

The formulas for property taxes are as follows:

Land - residential and commercial -
FMV * 10% * the millage = assessed valued.

Improvements, Equipment, Machinery, FFE - FMV * 15% * millage.

In this case The Cavalier has land assessed at a total of 6450, buildings at 1800, and FFE at 4982.They are located in Ward 1A with a millage rate of 96.76 mills.

Do the math - I came up with a total value, including equipment, machinery and FFE of $112,793.08 as assessed.

NOW - you have to remember PRICE is what a buyer is willing to pay a buyer. GAEDA being a public body cannot pay more than appraised value. It's going to be interesting to see at what price the appraiser puts on the property. Also, remember this, BECAUSE GAEDA is a public body, we will lose property taxes once it owns the property - they will be exempt from paying property taxes.

As I read Moller's last statement it would appear they wanted the $1M line of credit because they intend to purchase more than one piece of property. This is going to be interesting to watch for sure.

The problem with the potential GAEDA activity is that they are taking taxes/fees and using them for speculative ventures (acting as a private entity). The big issue is a public body not being responsive to the electorate. What if the incurred debt cannot be serviced by room fee receipts? Will they seek higher fees and more sources? I think that is highly likely and the governing power over GAEDA is the city council - but how much control can they exert since they do not control the purse strings? By the way, neither do you or I. Have they created a self feeding monster? As far a property purchse pricing - they have no over riding influence, such as the potential for business failure - to cause them to pay the lowest negotiated fair market value.

Appointing members is the form of control that the city council has over GAEDA and I will agree to that. The problem becomes the ability for you as a citizen to be able to vote on taxation. Presently, GAEDA uses a room fee that it imposed on local hotel/motels and that is their source of funding. At the time of imposition, there was protest from the hotel/ motel folk and they were quietened with the agreement to have a representative on the board and nothing further has been heard. This is not an attack on Cliff Moeller, but all that has come from his tenure is some nice talk, pretty pictures, and plums to fight promoters. Financial enterprises have to turn a profit (Gross receipts - all expense = profit) to remain alive while a quasi-governmental board such as GAEDA is parasitic in nature. Government works best when it does an excellent job of providing services such as police, fire, utilities, streets, parks, etc. that provide the setting for a community to prosper and leave the actual investment activities to investors.

Unfortunately for this man and his poor wife and children they do not have a leader like Jacque Roy to take care of things. The preachers and no alcohol folks are not the only former supporters that Fields has lost . It is no longer good enough for the folks over there to have a Mayor who only cuts ribbons and gives our awards to Cub Scouts.

he has a pack of problems

1) residency will be hard fought zapping time, money and energy

2) speaking of which, age - 63, and he now looks every bit of it. so after the hard fought legal battle, then he has to campaign. Is he up for it? After sitting in his cushy mansion, with his cushy job during Katrina!! Blanco (approx. same age) already has said she's not up for it.

3) Loss of dem. base. 50-100,000 is the estimate of lost voters. Blanco only won by 54,000. Dozens of people that I have talked to admitted that they were wrong last time. Multiply that state wide???

4) La is THE ONLY STATE that has trended MORE repub. in the last 4 years. Including the years before Katrina.

5) Foster Campbell will take voters from the left, Jindal from the right. And now that Blanco is gone (free for all??) how many dems will be willing to wait for the court to decide on Breaux - (Melancon, John, Kennedy, Landrieu, Odom, Ieyoub, etc.???) knowing that will leave them in a hole with little time/money to catch the front-runner.

6) All this waiting only strengthens Rep. front-runner status. Do dems hold all ads/money until Breaux's fate is decided?? Leaving Jindal/Campbell free reign to start locking up supporters with campaign promises?

7) Even if Breaux announces, a challenge can wait as long as the Sept qualifying to be filed. Leaving him less than 6 weeks to win the case, with a cloud of doubt hanging over his campaign during the final crucial weeks???

8) Last but not least, what will his answers be to his 30 yrs in LA politics, only to leave the state with LA being LAST in almost every category (roads, schools, hospitals, fed. funded levees failed, outmigration????)

Lets see some of the Clarence flip flop quotes.on one subject most talked about......alcohol.....Candidate..
2002. "Im against alcohol in Pineville, it hasnt hurt Pinevilles economy to not have it , people dont want it , Im against it"...then....recently reelected Clarence 2007..."I am for a change in the law that prohibits alcohol sales in Pineville"....then 3 days later..."but I cant do it .."ONLY "the people can bring alcohol to Pineville and ONLY if they get a petition and pass it" ( interestingly no mention of the Savior from Sabine Case) ...then 3 weeks later when people start to get mad at his flip flopping...we get FlipFlopFields again..' Uh, there is this law case from 2 years ago that might make Pineville wet " ( subliminal message....IT AINT MY FAULT...DEAR JESUS IT AINT MY FAULT....IT AINT IT AINT AND BESIDES WE ARE A TREE CITY AND WE HAVE A PARADE AT CHRISTMAS AND DID YOU SEE THE NEW WALGREENS??..JUST DONT BLAME ME FOR ALCOHOL..)
Then one week later when folks are pissed that he started this whole thing to start with but doesnt have the backbone to own up to it and appears to be riding the fence goes to his cue cards and reads from his most recent quote he was given by his handlers which is really funny...and it goes like this..." Pineville was dry when I took office and uh (whisper) I hope its Dry when I leave office" ....leaving everone who hears him to say.uh..whats that mean? Is he leaving office soon or is he is for it or against it cause he first said he was against it and then previously said he was for it and now it sounds like he says he is against it again..gee........and NOW today...the best of all....We learn that Clarence Ray Fields is such a leader, such a mastermind, such a political genius that he and he alone has known about that Sabine case and has been quietly plotting, planning, manipulating us all and that ...now seriously...he honest to God said this...dont laugh.because he is counting on our gullibility so dont laugh....He said.." I KNEW ABOUT THE SABINE CASE FROM 2 YEARS AGO RIGHT WHEN IT CAME OUT..BUT I HAVE BEEN FRAMING...(HE HONESTLY SAID THIS..HONEST.USED THE WORD ..."FRAMING") THE DEBATE TO PROTECT PINEVILLE" That would all be good and fine Clarence if you had actually had a debate that was understandable. He has been all over the board on the issue of Pineville and alcohol first against it then for it , then against it then for it then talking in riddles and now telling us that it was all part of some genius master plan to "frame the debate" ha ha ha. I wonder do his handlers sit around and think this stuff up? I know they dont email it anymore they sit around and think this stuff up and then convince him to actually say it??? Do they think just because they have been on a cadillac vacation these last few years do they assume that Pineville residents are just stupid as a rock?
Whether you are for Alcohl in Pineville or Against Alcohol in Pineville ONE Thing is a certainty, you all live in a Town with no leadership. Not from Fields or his bobbing head City Council. OR ...perhaps that is part of the FRAMING OF DEBATE that he planned.......ha ha ha

in Pineville. Mayor Fields and cronies promised more business would come to Pineville, as that is one of the few things they continually brag about in Pineville. Mayor Fields, after stating that he would
keep Pineville dry, recently began public ally stating that he
favored alcohol sales in Pineville.
When his complete reversal of campaign promises, drew the wrath of
Pineville voters, Fields and crew decided upon a new attack. They
public ally began explaining a 2 year old court case, and public
ally hoped it wouldn't be used in Pineville. They even got their
connections with propaganda media to promote that case, all at the
same time.
By begging someone to file a lawsuit, Fields and crew are hoping
to claim that it isn't their fault if alcohol comes to Pineville.
However, the voters of Pineville are not as simple minded as Fields
and his cohorts. The voters of Pineville see through these tactics,
and realize that Fields has been begging someone to file suit for
several weeks now.
Council members refusal to take positions on alcohol sales, are
also clearly understood by the voters. I bet there will not be
another election with no opposition in Pineville.

Clarence Ray Fields and his handlers, must be counting on the public being stupid and forgetting. the words and non leadership of Brother Fields. Whether you are FOR alcohol in Pineville or AGAINST alcohol in Pineville both groups have two things in common. They have a Mayor who is willing to mislead them in an attempt to maintain his political power and we have a Mayor who can not or will not speak clearly nor take a stand. In fact we have numerous Mayors in Pineville you just have to be quick to catch the current one.

USING HIS OWN WORDS lets reflect for a moment. CANDIDATE Clarence Fields 2002 " I am against alcohol in Pineville, I do not think that Pineville has missed out economically from not having alcohol sales, I do not hear a groundswell of support for alcohol in Pineville, I am against it" RECENTLY REELECTED Clarence Fields Feb 2007 #1, " I could support a change in the law that prohibits alchol sales in Pineville." Following outcry against alcohol Clarenc Fields #2 only 4 days later " Only a petition brought by the peoples forcing an election can ever bring alcohol sales to Pineville" (interesting that he doesnt mention his lifeboat the Sabine Case at this point...Clarence Fields #3 Three weeks later...." There is this case that was filed 2 years ago that I am revealing to you that might make Pineville wet unless the people THE PEOPLE take the initiative to put the issue on the ballot to vote it dry" IN OTHER WORDS, I EITHER DIDNT KNOW ABOUT THE SABINE CASE WHEN CLARENCE FIELDS #2 SPOKE OR I WAS LYING TO YOU TO GET THE HEAT OFF OF MY BACK OR I HOPE SOMEONE WILL PLEASE HELP ME OUT BY TAKING THE ISSUE AND PUT IT ON THE BALLOT SO I DONT GET BLAMED....DONT BLAME ME SEEMS TO BE THE MAIN PONT FROM CLARENCE FIELDS #3 . Then Clarence Fields #4 Reciting the words he was told to say EVERYTIME he could in the Paper, on the Radio at the donut shop..wherever he could get someone to listen...he cleaverly recites...." Pineville was dry when I took office and I hope it will be dry when I leave office". UH, Clarence what does that mean? Does that mean you are against alcohol like Clarence # 1?? or you want alcohol in Restraunts like Clarence #2? Or are you hoping we are all to dumb to keep up with your back and forth waffle?????? No matter which Clarence we are talking about they all are the same one who "wont TAKE A STAND ON THE ISSUE BECAUSE ITS A SOCIAL ISSUE THAT THE PEOPLE HAVE TO DECIDE".....THATS RIGHT...BOTH SIDES OF HIS MOUTH BUT NOW HE HAS A SCRIPT!!!!! Clarence Fields # 5 No show at City Council meeting but lets his Council take the heat and allows them to follow his lead by not saying whether they will be FOR or AGAINST. IN Fact one of them State Representative wanna be Kevin Dorn runs from the reporter asking him to give his position on alcohol sales in Pineville. All but one of the others say right out that they will not give their position on the issue despite the fac that it is one of the most important issues to come along for Pineville in YEARS.... WHAT LEADERS THEY ARE .....But they have Clarence the Great to imitate.....THEN the LATESTS CLARENCE FIELDS UPGRADE # 6 " I KNEW ABOUT THAT SABINE LAWSUIT WHEN IT FIRST CAME OUT BUT I WAS JUST "FRAMIN THE DEBATE" .".....HA HA HA ...Got a new script... Framin the debate??? ha.....framin the debate.....Great Job Clarence at Framin the debate. Do you even know ath you are saying or do you just repeat what you are told to say??????..Wonder how Clarence Fields #7 will explain how his starting the whole alcohol issue in Pineville then runing from it , then saying only an election could bring alcohol to Pineville , then saying he hoped it remained dry then hiding was " framing the debate" ??????? If I am for Alcohol Im pretty angry that we have a Mayor that WILL NOT LEAD and if Im against Alcohol I am angry because we have a Mayor that Will not LEAD and then tries to double talk us ......

Someone once said that a good leader is one that Knows where he is going and tells people to follow him there . UHHHH....We aint got one of them kind of leaders in Pineville.

While yall are talking Pineville politics would someone please tell me where Carol Cunningham Van Mol lives? I voted for her about 4 years ago but no one seems to live in the house that she used to be in AND they don't have a phone number. Doesn't an elected alderperson have to live in the area they are elected in? Who investigates this type of thing?

I know Jason Parks too and you could not find a better family than his. It is a genuine shame the run around your so called Mayor has given this family. I get the impression if Jason was wanting to open a bar he would get more helpful attention from your nitwit Mayor and his assistant. It is funny but we were all talking at lunch at how this Fields character has pulled the wool over everyones eyes. Well, I think a few more situations like this one will open a lot of peoples eyes. And contrary to what his lawyer said to the TV this administration seems to worry more about their image than anything else so getting his story on TV will probably get him results. Lets watch and see. OH And Im not Greg either.
