Happy Holidays!!!

I have a request of all you bloggers. I ask that for just one day, no one insults anyone or intentionally misconscrue facts in an attempt to assasinate someone's character.

When I read the postings, sometimes I want to hit DELETE for the entire blog. I am in total agreement with Horace. If you haven't jumped in to help out, then you have no say. Let's start 2008 intelligently.

Merry Christmas ... Happy Chanuka ... Merry Quanza ... Merry Hajh (??)

This guy is almost too stupid to bother with--->Sunday, December 23, 2007 4:53:00 PM, but I can't help myself, he's too easy a target to pass up.

Lets address your moronic assertions one at a time shall we?

First, you say, ...did not know the law re ethics and his practice and you’re an idiot because...Faircloth could maintain his private practice and serve as Executive Council because there is no law or ethics ruling that says he can't...period.

Second you say, ...who is the atty for the Gambling industry and you’re an idiot because...Faircloth was the attorney for the Coushatta Indian tribe. That same tribe operates a single casino. They had an attorney before Faircloth and now that he has resigned as their council, they will hire another attorney. Are you saying that because they operate a casino they don’t have the right to council? Are you saying that because they are Indians, any attorney they hire is un-ethical? Like I said, you’re an idiot.

Third you say, ...whose legacy at Pineville will be trying to prevent transparency of what goes on in Pineville government and you’re an idiot because...Name for us one thing the City of Pineville has not been transparent about? Wanna see e-mails? Call and ask, they’ll set up a computer just for you so you can look to your hearts content…for free! Need copies? Pay the copy charge and you can get all you want. Looking for arrest records? They have every arrest logged in at the front desk of the Police Department and stored in a binder. Look all you want! Need a copy? They are $1.00 for each copy. I challenge you, peabrain, Name one, just one instance where the City of Pineville tried to hide anything.

No, you’re one of Aymond’s sick little minions who tries to stir the pot with half baked lies. You hate Faircloth because he has ripped the cover off your little e-mail forgery scheme and shined a spotlight on it. Now, just like cockroaches, you’re running from the light.

Don't take my word for it, read Villar's letter yourself at WeSawThat's http://wesawthat.blogspot.com/2007/10/pineville-keeps-police-blotter-secret.html. Ok, there is your one instance. LOL

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to one and all.

I hope this new year will bring us all together for the betterment of both the cities and parish of Rapides. We have a long way to go but I believe that we have started the journey and with the help of all we can make this area better for the everyone. Let's strive to make a change for the better.

I hope everyone has a safe holidays.

It is my understanding that public figures cannot sue the publicfor defamation of character because of their public figure status. Does this include any public employee?

memory jogger said...

Not quite true. Public figures have to prove actual malice so their burden is greater for recovery.

Also, if memory serves, Pineville was very resistant to providing any access to Aymond's requested materials and their present willingness to permit on-sight inspection is a result of Aymond's efforts. That is why ALL of the local media supported Aymond's heroic efforts.

Anonymous said...

What evidence do we have that the local media favored or disfavored Aymond's actions?

It would seem local media would only be interested in someone's attempt at obtaining access if it eased the work necessary to meet their requests and Aymond's legal actions against Pineville just strenghens local media ability. As far as Aymond's actual case I don't think the media gives a flip.

The local media is in a win win situation. If the the bottom feeder is successful they can now obtain CD's for a fraction of the cost of the copies. If he loses they have lost nothing nor sullied their name.

Never ever blieve Aymond is conducting this witchhunt due to some high moraled principles. He is seeking revenge and a big pay day. He subscribes to Beuatiful Brigitte's mantra "it is now his time."

In closing Quint should realize that at times the truth tends to bring disrespect to the person being spoken off. It is kinda like perjuring one's self under oath. Discredits the individual in all aspects of that persons life. Would it not be a logical conclusion that one that would perjure himself/herself under oath but proclaim to be a Christian and outwardly living a Christian life would be a hypocrite?

So if the truth discredits or demeans someone then the only opion would be to say nothing. With nothing to say there would be no need for the blog. I think in amongst all this posting there a many gems of truths. his blog seems to be the only way the actual truth can be told to the Public in this area. Our local media is a joke. Local bloggers spin things on their sites to present themselves in the best light.

In closing never forget "a hit dog howls." Those desiring the closure of blog sites basically are angered by the disclosure of information. As one Alexandria City employee stated: "He (another City employee) was mad because someone was posting City business on this blog site and know everyone knows." Employees of Governmental Agencies do not think they are subject to the scrutiny of the public.

There a few contenders for the DA position, but Downs has a lock on it.

Anonymous said...

I agree Downs is most likely to retain his office. However, there are a few who could make it an interesting race. Downs must work and campaign. Remember, Slocum had a "lock" on the Sheriff's race.

codger said...

Much to my disappointment, Downs is the most "political" DA in my lengthy memory. His decisions are based on political considerations instead of justice, fairness, or law enforcement. It's a shame.

Anonymous said...

Andy why is prosecuting that lady for arson the most important thing he can do in the next term?

Anonymous said...

Unfortunately, much of our city problems stem directly from Down's unwillingness to enforce the law on issues such as open meetings, Marshall's felony status, and certain conduct of Myron Lawson, Charles F. Smith, & Bridget Brown of which he is painfully aware.

Henry Lemoine for da said...

I think the importance of prosecuting the Gutweiller case is more about ego than justice. Mike Small made such fools out of that office that they are busting their asses to try to recover face and reputation. Lots-0-luck.

Anonymous said...

Downs is a good guy, and he does what is right, not what is politically expedient. It is those who work fo him who have gotten him into political trouble. Some of his assistants are ego driven and seek their own power by running for other offices or getting very involved in trying to be kingmakers in other races. These ego driven power grabs are creating vehement enemies who are gathering at the base of the mountain.

The Gutweiller fiasco could certainly be a millstone around Jam's neck. But I think few, if any, opponents would be willing to play that card. There isn't an attorney that hasn't lost some case. Everyone of them comes with "baggage".

gud guvment said...

The only King Maker was John Flynn who left the office some time ago. I heard some bad stuff about Down's secretary but that seems to have blown over. If you are talking about that office's part in the Slocum defeat, everybody on the 3rd and 5th floors of the courthouse had an active hand in that. Since you are unable to name names I must conclude that you are probably Slocum and/or full of shit.

Anonymous said...

What exactly do you think JOHN FLYNN did to cause any of these people to be elected? Give me something specific that he did if anything?

all hail flynn said...

No sense in us arguing. Talk to Jacques Roy and Chuck Wagner and they will credit their elections to John Flynn. He happens to be brilliant and that seems to help.

Anonymous said...

I voted for both of those candidates, and I have never heard Flynn say anything nor have seen him assocaited in anyway with those campaigns. I thought that WE the voters, listening to the candidates' messages, are the ones that got them elected?

Flynn's decision to switch Chuck from Republican to Democrat in the spring was the brilliant move. The rest was history.

The fact that you are in the dark on the crucial and pivotal roll that Flynn played in recent elections is a genuine tribute to his brilliance.

I wouldn't be so sure on that Terral prediction. I think that there are much stronger candidates out there, some of which are already in the prosecuting business.

Seems like a judge would also know a thing or 2 about criminal matters too.

Let me tell you something about Flynn. In 2006, he gutted the Delores Brewer movement. In 2007, he gutted Lance Maxwell and Mike Slocum. To a lesser extent, he gutted Kelvin Sanders. In 2008, he will gut_________? You fill in the blank.

Anonymous said...

Flynn has proven to be more than competent in handling these races. He also has had alot of competent help with each race. Derailing Slocum was like hunting over a baited field because that guy was so easy. There are a couple of people that Flynn may sign on with if they ran against Downs. So far, they ain't running. Downs has done a good job - he's just not much for politicin. Should be a calm election cycle this time. A Judge race or 2, City Marshall might be interesting, City Council?? Don't look for anyone to challenge Downs - it would take at least $300k and the Sheriff's race grabbed up most of the local big $ for a while.

Anonymous said...

Flynn didn't "gut" anyone. Brewer was a Republican candidate running in a district that was 51% African-American. She never had a prayer. In three years Mayor Roy will get beat by Roosevelt and nobody can save him on that one. Maxwell was 29 years old. He was up against the Mayor's brother, the Mayor, the former Alex police chief, the town talk and now your also saying Flynn. If it took all of them to beat him...then that speaks more for Maxwell than Flynn. Slocum's race is interesting. I think the KALB "smoke and mirrors" story and Bill Robinson's all out push for Wagner did much more than any other aforementioned figure. I say if Fynn is such a "great" political mind...why doesn't he run. He has always wanted to be DA. This would be the year. Lets see how smart he really is.

Does the City of alexandria have employeed a city employee that is a licensed, professional Electrical Engineer. If so, who is it?

Anonymous said...

PS: To my knowledge the City of Alexandria has several Engineer Interns but is there a city employee that is a registered professional Electrical Engineer? One who can design, certify, etc. You know one who can design circuitry, "stamp" and certify an electrical drawing as meeting codes as a professional engineer can?

(2) A professional engineer shall be either:

(a) An engineer intern, or an individual who meets the qualifications to be an engineer intern, who has met the requirements for progressive engineering experience in work acceptable to the board, who is of good character and reputation, who has passed the written or electronic examinations required by the board, and who has satisfied the requirements of R.S. 37:694.

Anonymous said...

Practicing engineers
In most countries, a Bachelor's degree in engineering represents the first step towards professional certification and the degree program itself is certified by a professional body. After completing a certified degree program the engineer must satisfy a range of requirements (including work experience requirements) before being certified. Once certified the engineer is designated the title of Professional Engineer (in the United States, Canada and South Africa ), Chartered Engineer (in India, the United Kingdom, Ireland and Zimbabwe), Chartered Professional Engineer (in Australia and New Zealand) or European Engineer (in much of the European Union).

The advantages of certification vary depending upon location. For example, in the United States and Canada "only a licensed engineer may seal engineering work for public and private clients".[


§700. Enforcement proceedings against other persons; procedure

A. The board shall have the power to take enforcement action against any non-licensee or non-certificate holder found by the board to be guilty of any of the following acts or offenses:

(1) Practicing or offering to practice engineering or land surveying in the state of Louisiana without being licensed in accordance with the provisions of this Chapter.

(2) Presenting or attempting to use as one's own the license, certificate, seal, or stamp of another person.

(3) Any fraud, deceit, material misstatement, or perjury or the giving of any false or forged evidence in applying for a license or certificate, or in taking any examination.

(4) Falsely impersonating any licensee or certificate holder of like or different name.

(5) Using or attempting to use an expired, inactive, retired, or revoked license or certificate.

(6) Using or attempting to use a seal or stamp which is deceptively similar to the seals or stamps authorized by the board for use by its licensees.

(7) The use by any person of the words "engineer" or "engineering" or "land surveyor" or "land surveying" or any modification or derivative thereof in its name or form of business or activity except as licensed under this Chapter or in the pursuit of activities exempted by this Chapter.

(8) Falsely claiming that a person is licensed under this Chapter.

Returning the discussion to Rapides Parish DA Jam Downs. Seems to me since he plans to run only once more that all of these folks who want to be DA should wait 4 years until there's an open seat. Politics 101--candidates would not be battling Jam, the incumbents' supporters. Just seems like the best opportunity to run would be in four years when he retires.

Anonymous said...

The district attorney's term is for six years. I agree that they should wait, but if one person decides to run, the gate will open and others will also run.

I hear that William Earl Hilton is going to become a lobbist for the LA Sheriffs Association in Baton Rouge. Anyone else hear anything.

Should Jam Downs run again and have one or more opponents, who would be his supporters? Jam initially inherited his position as D.A. Then he was elected for a full term by default as he had no opponents. Thus we were denied learning who would have backed him. This election may be another story. I doubt if any opponent would be willing to grant Jam another free ride.

If its a war, it will be like LSU v. Ohio State. Phillip is a lot like Les Miles, give him time to prepare and he is gonna crush the opposition.

Wrong. The only contest Phillip ever won was when his daddy was still active, Wagner was still DA, and Baden was in charge. You would have a tough time finding someone who doesn't know, like, and respect VanDyke or Lambert.

I don't think Phillip is gonna give up a sure thing and put himself at risk like that.

Anonymous said...

6 years is a long way off and a lot can happen. The safe money would be on one of the 2(Terrel or Lampbert) running against a few other lesser knowns at this point. Terrell is a good politician in his own right and Lambert seems to steadily make progress towards that office. Those guys are smart enough to know that they would hurt each other bad if they ran against each other and they will probably line up together in some format against the other candidates - whoever that is. The Sheriff race showed us that nobody is guaranteed anything.

Rumor on the street is that Greg Upton and David Lind may be running.

What's up with the "Menard Mafia" I have heard that they have targeted seven different political offices and are willing to do anything to get their hands on them.

As of now they hold the Alexandria mayor's seat, Sheriff's seat, and the 25 District seat. Left to go is: 2 seats on the 9th JDC, The DA's chair, and the US 5th Cong seat.

As I see it they have been lucky so far.

You need to ask John Flynn who is going to win those positions. He appears to be the "decider".

John Flynn is a pimple on a Gnat's ass.

First time he gets into a real political gunfight, he'll fold.

Anonymous said...

Betcha Mike Slocum wished Flynn and a few of his lawyer friends were pimples on his ass. Whether they are good at picking winners or making winners - no difference. The bottom line is that the "old guard" is falling away and they can't stand to see that power bleed off. Let's see what happens in the Judge, City Marshall and DA races. My bet is they stay out of all of those unless one of them runs.

Has anyone noticed that on Lamar's website he posts an article titled "A Reason for Republicans to Worry"... If you click on the article you will clearly see that two comments have been left (one of which was left by Lamar himself). If you read his additional comment you might notice the last line where he states, "I think Obama would easily carry Rapides Parish over any Republican challenger. No question". He totally has the right to his opinion...but this just goes to show you how out of touch this guy must be. Another out of touch liberal working for our liberal mayor.

Does Lamar still work for the City of Alexandria and is he the spokesman for the Mayor? I am interested to know if when he speaks that we can infur that he is speaking for the city

Anonymous said...

Without a doubt, Slocum was, and still is, the best man for the job of Sheriff. Sometimes the best man doesn't win. Slocum made two fatal errors. First, he let his campaign be run by a guy from Baton Rouge who has not won a race in Rapides Parish in 15 years. Second, he allowed himself to be painted as the incumbent during an election cycle that threw every incumbent out of office.

In short, Chuck Wagner didn't beat Slocum...John Flynn didn't beat Slocum...Slocom and his team beat Slocum.

Like the other poster said, when Flynn gets into a real political race, he'll fold like a cheap pup tent in a high wind.

Anonymous said...

Define a "real race." If it is neither: Roy v. Brewer, Roy v. Maxwell, Wagner v. Slocum - what is? I'm seriously asking. You are correct, Slocum was a bafoon politically. However, with $700,000, endorsement from the popular incumbent and an army of deputies working for me, I think I could get Barney Fife elected sheriff. I'm not a Flynn worshiper he had lots of smart people helping him - but come on - give the guy a little credit. He's not magic - even he couldn't get Tom Searcy elected city judge but he's been an asset to every candidate he's helped since then. Unlike Roach - he's willing to learn from his mistakes.

Anonymous said...

Let's look at each race shall we?
We find a sort of commonality with Roy VS Brewer and Slocum VS Wagner, that is the political environment.
In both races the public was ready for change and voted that way. With Brewer, I could have run a chimpanzee and beaten her after the "rape" issue, the brown pig issue, and her haughty attitude.
With Slocum, even a half-assed political observer could see that Jindal had whipped the entire state into a term limit, anti-incumbent, throw the bastards out mentality. Slocum should have run AWAY from Hilton in public. The second mistake Roach made was allowing Slocum to speak in public. When you have a candidate who is a weak public speaker, you don't let him get in front of a mic.
Also, the tattle-tale deputy, Michelle Goddard fiasco was handled poorly. You cannot get into a pissing contest with the media, even if they have been paid off by your opposition. Slocum should have attacked Goddard's sources, not the TV station. Let the public see that Goddard is nothing more than an a bubble headed ex bikini model who doesn't verify her sources. The original complaint was against Hilton, not Slocum. Had Slocum distanced himself from Hilton and made public that he had taken a leave of absence 6 months earlier, he would have not been tagged. Another huge mistake by David Roach that cost Slocum and played right into the hands of Wagner.

As to the Roy VS Maxwell race, we should be asking why Flynn could not engineer a bigger win than he did. C'mon, Chris Roy, one of the political princes of Louisiana against a wet behind the ears, mama's boy with no experience? There should have never been a runoff.

No, John Flynn was lucky to have fallen into three races where the opposition candidate was either weak or damaged. Like I said before, when he gets in a real race, against a experienced candidate, he'll drown.

So will Flynn help Clarence Fields get reelected as mayor of Pineville so he can then run for Senate to fill Jo Mcs seat? See, thats whats hidden in the emails at Pineville City hall. A plan to run . Maybe a request for JUST that email would be interesting.

I like Flynn. The problem is that he is accumulating a massive mob of bitter enemies. There's nothing more dangerous in politics than leaving a bunch of wounded and pissed off dogs behind as you blaze a trail to glory. Sooner, or even sooner, the pack catches up with you and devours you and those whom you helped to elevate.

To Anon Monday, January 28, 2008 6:26:00 PM

You are blaming David Roach for too much. A political consultant can only advise his candidate, not control him. Slocum was advised by Mr. Roach not to participate in any debates because he would loose votes. Mike Slocum believed that he could do anything that he wanted to do. He did not and would not listent to his advisor. He believed that with the endorsement of Hilton and his vast money that he was unbeatable. Boy, was he wrong. I have spoken to Mike Slocum since the election and he still dosen't get it.

You say that Mike Slocum should have distanced himself from WEH. If you notice he took the endorcement of WEH all during the election and spoke of it at every function and toward the end kept saying that "I am not the sheriff". He tried to distance himself from WEH at the end but people saw through it.

I believe that you are right that people were ready for a change. This is what I heard when I spoke to friends about the election. It is time for a change and if Mike Slocum would have been elected there would not have been a change.

I do believe you need to give credit where credit is due. Even though Slocum shot himself in the foot, if the voters would not have had a viable candidate to vote for (Chuck Wagner), Slocum would probably have won. Chuck Wagner won the election because he gave the voters a new option. John Flynn did not win the election for him. John Flynn has not won any election, it was the candidate.

If your candidate does not win you should be sad but not bitter. Always give the winner a chance to prove himself. You may change your mind ablout the candidate before the next election. If you don't, you have the right to vote your belief. That is the American way.

Been there, done that said...

With all due respect Horace, you don’t know WTF you’re talking about. First, David Roach does his own polling and the numbers are faulty. He lost the last race for DA in Winn Parish. He lost an EASY race in District 22 to an althimerz ridden, old man because his poll numbers are faulty. In this last election cycle, he managed 5 campaigns across the state and lost them all. I was there, in Slocum’s Alexandria campaign office when Slocum asked Roach about the debate. Roach looked Slocum right in the eye and told him “you don’t have any choice.”

This race was Slocum’s to lose, and he lost it, no doubt. But to say that Roach did not have a hand in the loss, shows that you don’t have a clue.

Typical liberal response. Focus on a spelling error and attempt to minimize the overall message. I think the guy is right, despite his spelling limitations. I also think the Flynn detractors have hit a nerve. If the Roy and Wagner clan are depending on Flynn to be their Moses, they will be wandering in the desert next election cycle.

Historicaly, "kingmakers" live a short political life. They practice slash and burn politics in order to get their "bosses" elected, this creates countless wounded wolves who lose their power at the hands of the kingmaker and they spend their days dreaming of revenge.

Eventually, politcal fortunes change and the wolves break down the kings door. The king quickly offers up the kingmaker's head on a platter in an attempt to appease the wolves. The kingmaker is destroyed and the kings appeasment attempt is usually not effective.

It has been my observation that "wounded wolves" usually have very sharp teeth and a unique determination to use them. Locally, these wolves are not nearly as powerless as the Menard Mafia would have the public believe.

Flynn has not the experience or the support to weather the political storm gathering on the horizon.

Unfortunately you are as ungraceful with metaphor as you are with human nature or dynamic analysis. It is much easier to gain power and influence thru association and cooperation than thru predation. You might remember that wolves were well on their way to extinction until revived by kindness and conservation. Vendetta is a pretty poor path to glory. Better to be on Flynn's side.

The City Attorney Mr. Johnson appeared to do a great job on misleading the council as to the suit againwt ANNRICH. In response to Mr. Silver's question as to whether or not it would be handled by in-house attorneys Mr. Johnson should have replied: "no, it has been handled by the law firm of Bussey and Lauve (outside counsel)since the termination of Mrs. Laura Sylvester."

Also, though it matters little, in the City's opinion $64,000.00+ is owed, not $100,000.00+.

Wasn't this request for a Resolution prefaced by the Administration wanting to do everything they could to have an amiable working relationship with the Council and immediately thereafter Johnson waltzes the Council around with half facts.

On Friday the 25th of January I submitted a request to Mrs. Thiels, Custodian of Records, City of Alexandria for access to the following: The document, resolution or whatever authorizing the City of alexandria to file a lawsuit against ANNRICH and Richard Heath during the month of April 1977. The other request was for the document stating Michael marcotte is the only person authorized to sign off on request for permits for the City of Alexandria.

My request was met by a phone call from Mr. Johnson stating I could obtain this information for free under discovery in the lawsuit. I reiterated I wanted access to the documents. Mr. Johnson informed me that I would be called when the copies were ready. Monday morning I sent Mr. Johnson the following e-mail: "Dear Mr. Johnson:

I was left somewhat confused by our telephone conversation of Friday, January 25, 2008 as relates to my request for access to that documentation (be it whatever - a Resolution, a Code or other document) authorizing Ms. Laura Sylvester to file a lawsuit against ANNRICH, INC and Richard J. Heath.

During this conversation you referred to cost I would incur by utilizing the request instead of obtaining the document(s) under discover. For informational purposes I have attached pertinent extracted paragraphs of RS: 44 to minutely detail what I desire. I desire access to read the applicable Authority. I have not asked you to make copies of anything.

If this e-mail is not sufficiently clear as to my desires please let me know.

(2) The custodian shall be personally liable for the payment of any such damages, and shall be liable in solido with the public body for the payment of the requester's attorney fees and other costs of litigation, except where the custodian has withheld or denied production of the requested record or records on advice of the legal counsel representing the public body in which the office of such custodian is located, and in the event the custodian retains private legal counsel for his defense or for bringing suit against the requester in connection with the request for records, the court may award attorney fees to the custodian.
F. An award for attorney fees in any suit brought under the provisions of this Chapter shall not exceed the amounts approved by the attorney general for the employment of outside counsel.
Amended by Acts 1978, No. 686, §1; Acts 1988, No. 336, §1; Acts 1999, No. 1154, §1.





33. Availability of records
A.(1) When a request is made for a public record to which the public is entitled, the official, clerks of court and the custodian of notarial records in and for the parish of Orleans excepted, who has responsibility for the record shall have the record segregated from other records under his custody so that the public can reasonably view the record.
(2) If, however, segregating the record would be unreasonably burdensome or expensive, or if the record requested is maintained in a fashion that makes it readily identifiable and renders further segregation unnecessary, the official shall so state in writing and shall state the location of the requested record.
B.(1) If the public record applied for is immediately available, because of its not being in active use at the time of the application, the public record shall be immediately presented to the authorized person applying for it. If the public record applied for is not immediately available, because of its being in active use at the time of the application, the custodian shall promptly certify this in writing to the applicant, and in his certificate shall fix a day and hour within three days, exclusive of Saturdays, Sundays, and legal public holidays, for the exercise of the right granted by this Chapter.
(2) The fact that the public records are being audited shall in no case be construed as a reason or justification for a refusal to allow inspection of the records except when the public records are in active use by the auditor.
Amended by Acts 1978, No. 686, §1; Acts 1982, No. 567, §1."

In my opinion Mr. Johnson's actions during the City Council meeting was to be sure the lawsuit filed almost a year ago and is being handled by outside counsel had the blessing of the Counsel. In order to obtain this blessing he had to spin the story.

If so then I guess Jaques Roy should be standing out side of Circuit City and taking credit for the new paper plant. But he is not. Neither is Fred Baden standing around taking credit for the Walmart or the Super One that came to Pineville when he was Mayor. These people are dangerous . They are the poster children of image over substance. Clearly ambition is their lord and savior. And people over there seem to be finally realiZing it. The fact that Clayray is now doing more and more on our side of the river, when he is in town, tells me he has some illusions of bigger things. Well, survey says he dont survive reelection to Mayor.

"Well, survey says he dont survive reelection to Mayor."


You're a funny guy, ya really are! Morons are often comical! But, you need a new pollser.

Circuit City, Academy, etc came to Alexandria DESPITE Ned, Jacques, and the "get mine 'cause it's my turn" council.

Lowe's, Country Inns and Suites, The Pineville Convention Center are there BECAUSE of Fields and his team.

Both of you gentlemen reveal something of your personal preferences by viewing pussy as a bad thing. Pussy can be your friend.

For months I have been watching as the local bloggers beat their chests and proclaim that their blog is the way to political enlightenment.

Greg Aymond is famous for deleting posts that contradict his views, or challenge his twisted “facts.” I have challenged him in this forum as well as his own. The posts I place here, appear on this blog, the posts I place on Aymond’s blog do not.

Now another local blogger has joined the ranks of those who squelch any voice of opposition.

After Lamar White posted his tome anointing Barack Obama as the messiah destined to lead us into social utopia, I blasted Lamar about Obama’s lack of administrative experience, his past political ties to terrorist groups, his illegal drug use, voting record, and a host of other activities that show his poor judgment. In short, Obama is not fit to be president of the United States.

I guess the facts were too much for Lamar. He deleted my post.

I suspect this is the norm for Lamar in his personal as well as professional life. His “don’t confuse me with the facts” attitude is just fine for someone who is not in a position to influence public policy, however, Lamar is practicing this same philosophy while serving the public as a staff member to Mayor Jacques Roy, and getting paid by our tax dollars.

To say the least, I’m a bit uncomfortable with Lamar’s policy of silencing those that disagree with his socialistic views.

Which leads me to ask...Is Lamar being influenced by the underlying political philosophy of Jacques Roy? Or, is he whispering those socialistic views to our Mayor?

Either is unacceptable in my view.

Amazing. I see opposing comments on both blogs. Why are they just picking on you? Or could it be that you are full of shit?

I agree. During the last mayor's race, Lamar ran around making noise like he was conservative and pro-business.

I guess Lamar is real good at lies and deception. He's sure talking like a socialist now.

Is it just me or has anybody else noticed that issues are seldom discussed on this blog, and instead it seems centered on trashing people?

Lamar White, Jr. said...

I have not deleted a single comment regarding the candidacy of Barack Obama, and I always welcome a rigorous debate on the issues.

I'm not sure why you feel inclined to lie about my actions and misrepresent my beliefs, particularly considering that this was completely unprovoked.

But it doesn't surprise me: This type of deception/ personal attack is a hallmark of this blog.

You may be right and this Reister guy might be full of shit, but take a close look at the responses to Aymond and White. They are a little weak and and easy to put down.

This Reister guy seems pretty smart. Perhaps neither Aymond or White wants to tangle with him.

I read this blog often and Reister has called Aymond out before. His gripes always seem to center around Aymond deleting his posts.

You got busted Reister. Your comment about Aymond and White says anonymous, so how did Anon at 9:38:00 AM know the original post wqas made by Reister?

Obviously both anon posts were made by Reister. You don't seem to be too smart afterall. HaHa .

The surest way to chaos and tyranny is to silence independent thinking. By silencing those who oppose their singular point of view, they hope to keep their thoughts alive, while killing off the opposition.

Lamar, Aymond, radical Moslems, Nazis, all use the same tool. Silence the independent voice and continue your own brand of propaganda.

Their thought is…”A lie, told often enough, soon becomes truth.”
