RECALL NO! Fundraiser

Y’all come on up the hill and watch a bunch of well-to-do cheapskates pry open their moth-infested wallets one last time for the Three Bald Tires.

While you’re there, don’t forget to tour the home of water boarder and notorious hotel junketeer (on your dime!)  Jim Blake, too. You spent $125 bucks for the privilege, you might as well look at his big screen TV, his Lazy Boy recliner and his fancy reproduction oil paintings.

And speaking of the notorious Jim Blake, I’ll leave this for your perusal just to remind you of the moral caliber the anti-recall gang:

    Good job on getting the recall on the cover of the Pennysaver; that is badass!

    Good to know that No-Recall supporter Jim Blake isn’t concerned about taxpayers. Reporter asks Blake how he justifies staying in a hotel to go to water meetings that are 26 miles from his home when thousands of LA commuters drive that on a daily basis. Blake says, “I’m not concerned about them.”

    Blake hasn’t lifted a finger for Fullerton water customers ever. He has however lifted some very expensive wine on our dime.

    Green Acre Drive? Wonder if Arnold the pig will be dropping by.

    I saw all the old names of old mayors and had the urge to yell at a squirrel, but I found this instead-

    What an unhappy trip down memory lane.

    Bankhead: All-American dunderhead. Ackerman: All-American grifter. LeQuire: All-American reptile.

    That’s a great story. And we still have the same bad apples playing backroom politics 24 years later.

    did you ever record the sound with Tony?

  13. #13 by The Fullerton Harpoon on April 18, 2012

    McPension makes $18,000 a month doing nothing. Bankhead makes $9000 a month sitting on his ass.

    HeeHaw owns 13 cars.

    And they won’t even invest in themselves.

  14. #14 by Fullerton Public Servant on April 18, 2012

    Anyone want to volunteer to stand outside the fundraiser and see how poorly it is attended?

  15. #15 by The Fullerton Harpoon on April 18, 2012

    I hope you aren’t suggesting a protest in the public right of way. This blog could never countenance such a…aw go ahead and do it.

  16. #16 by merijoe on April 18, 2012

    Good point FH.
    I think they just like to do this for their ego-what will the money they raise be used for? guessing game. I say temporary tattoos with their names for everyone.

    Great infomercial….fundraiser, fuuu nnnd raiser

    How’s ur ego Joe? Lol

    Been there, done that at the first one. From now on in I’ll vote.

  19. #19 by Fence sitting Cardboard Candidate on April 18, 2012

    Jim Blake is a man of very high character. Maybe I’ll attend.

  20. #20 by all I can say is on April 18, 2012

    Out of the list of former Mayors, two of them were recalled oh so many years ago.
    Do you see anyone on that list above the rank of Mayor?

  21. #21 by The Fullerton Watcher on April 18, 2012

    Dick Ackerman was the majority leader in the state assembly years ago, now he is just a worthless tool like so many other former legislators. Chuck are you reading this? Thanks for sticking us with Deb Pauly the launatic!

  22. #22 by Fidel Fullerton on April 18, 2012

    Bruce Whitacre thought enough of Jim Blake to mooch a water junket from him to the Colorado River last October. Whitacre under-valued the junket at $271 as a gift, hoping no one would challenge it or call for an investigation. Will he attend the fundraiser?

  23. #23 by The Fullerton Watcher on April 18, 2012

    What Bruce doing that? At least with him we can all agree it’s completely out of character. Even on his campaign he was super tight with how he spent. Bruce is someone I trust with my money. Bruce for mayor!

    In the olden days they used to take failed, dirty or corrupted politicians and literally run them out of town ‘on a rail’. The culprit would actually get tied to a fence rail face down and carried out to the city limits by the townsfolk then abandoned. The town sheriff would oversee it. And it was made quite clear to the culprit that he was never welcomed back into town. And the sheriff would enforce that order. I sort of wish that society would return to those olden days. Some people would say that it’s not civilized behavior. But from my understanding it was much more civilized than the way we live today. It kept everyone much more honest and respectful of the rights of others. And what is ‘civilization’ but respecting the rights of your fellow man? If we can elicit more respectful behavior we enhance ‘civilization’. Fullerton should put such a measure on the June ballot. I betcha it would pass!

  25. #25 by The Fullerton Watcher on April 18, 2012

    Can we all agree that the three old men have to go just because it’s almost unsafe to drive in Fullerton! I used to own an off road vehicle and it was the only way to drive in Fullerton now in my Lexus I’m freaking out at how bad our roads are!

  27. #27 by The Fullerton Harpoon on April 19, 2012

    I wonder if there will be anybody under 65 there.

  28. #28 by Fullerton Lover on April 19, 2012

    This is exactly why party lines and perceptions are dangerous at the local level.
    Most of the local electorate “ass/u/me ‘d” in 2010 that the Fullerton public employees unions were supportive of the candidate of the Democratic party, instead of them supporting each and every one of the three Republican candidates.

  29. #29 by merijoe on April 19, 2012

    recall 1994- no wonder some of the guest list is against recall- they’ve got experiance with recalls and being crooked.

  31. #31 by The Desert Rat on April 19, 2012

    Good find. Yes, in 1994 McClanahan, Bankhead and Catlin denied the will of the people to hold a replacement election until a judge told them they had to do it.

    They greedily held on to power as long as they could. Fortunately, now there is an immediate replacement so that the incompetent and corrupt power freaks have to go – ah-mmediately, as HeeHaw would say.

    McClanahan, Catlin and Bankhead. Familiar names, no?

  32. #32 by merijoe on April 19, 2012

    “McClanahan, Catlin and Bankhead. Familiar names, no?”


  33. #33 by The Desert Rat on April 19, 2012

    I think it’s hilarious that Catlin, Florby, McCan’tahan are hedging their bets by supporting Chaffee in the replacement election.

    What’s that say for their confidence in the Recall?

  34. #34 by Fence sitting Cardboard Candidate on April 19, 2012

    I fail to see the humor, but humor has never been my strong point. May I stand over here in the middle?

  35. #35 by karma on April 19, 2012

    it;’s a perfect marriage, IMO. No one will vote for Chaffee now.

    Anyone who stays awake the majority of the day would never vote the direction of those three.

  36. #36 by Mayor Quirk's Conscience on April 19, 2012

    What will my fate be when I can’t beat Norby in November? Will I be out of office like the three bald tires?

  37. #37 by Allan Bartlett on April 19, 2012

    That Channel 2 video is pure gold. Thanks for posting it.

    Necessary cost of doing business?! (you know he just wanted to call y’all suckers) Firstly, meetings can be held online now a days and I’m sure limos, helicopters, hotel suites, fine wine, steak and lobster are things taxpayers are not supposed to pay for. These self-entitled, self-deluded, old crony crooks gotta go.

    Mayor Quirk’s Conscience :What will my fate be when I can’t beat Norby in November? Will I be out of office like the three bald tires?

    I will run around the city with the 500 pairs of sox I have gotten, you know for the homeless..puuuuke.

  42. #42 by Fullerton Lover on April 20, 2012

    I just got a notice from the OCWD where Don Bankhead is Vice-President saying that half the groundwater in Fullerton has been polluted by former aerospace manufacturing plants improperly disposing of toxic chemicals they were using.
    The link is to the OCWD compensation so you can see that Don clears $18,000 of our money for sleeping through meetings and asking them to raise our rates for conserving water like they asked us to.

  43. #43 by truthseeker on April 20, 2012

    And the water up on the hill is a blend of MWD imported water and Fullerton well water so he gets the best of both worlds, rocket fuel and fluoride .At first I thought it was the prions eating away but now the mystery is solved.

  44. #44 by whocares on April 20, 2012

    I think pro recall supporters should picket out front of his house on that night.

  45. #45 by The Desert Rat on April 20, 2012

    I may motor in from 29 Palms for the event.
