Fullerton Is Under Attack!

Last night my compadre the Harpoon penned an angry response to words attributed to outgoing “Acting” Chief Kevin Hamilton that Fullerton was “a town under attack.”

It was a good try, but Harpoon missed the point. Fullerton is under attack!

Fullerton is under attack by a rogue police force that couldn’t control its own uniformed hoodlums, even if it wanted to. And apparently it doesn’t.

Fullerton is under attack by a sclerotic trio of antiquated imbeciles who will never take responsibility for their own failure of leadership.

Fullerton is under attack by a bureaucracy that has fraudulently duped the water rate payers for at least 15 years by tacking on a 10% tax on their water bills without a single effort to inform them about it. Every step of the way in this squalid scam the City Council nodded agreement, and said nothing.

Fullerton is under attack from the Redevelopment Army of jobbers, fixers, bag, men, whores, and other assorted camp followers who want to divert funds from necessary public use into the pockets of favored “developers,” consultants, and lobbyists. And our Three Sclerotic Tree Sloths? Bamboozled? Of course not. These supposedly staunch conservatives are hooked on the smack of Central Government Economic Planning  like a street hype is to his junk.Jones even referred to Redevelopment money as candy to be handed out to deserving kids.

Think the threat is false? Even now the Three Dry Wells are pursuing a legal battle to illegally broaden Fullerton’s Redevelopment zone into areas where there is no blight, a basic legal requirement.

Fullerton is under attack by an ignorant, somnolent, rude, self-righteous Turgid Trio that has left the city’s infrastructure a mess, the citizens in fear of their safety, and budget reserves depleted.

Yes Fullerton is under attack. Harpoon got one thing right. We are Fullerton. And we’re fighting back

  1. I’m not so curious anymore abut the illegal water tax. We’ve been getting hoodwinked for years. Now I want a refund!

    Great catch Joe.

    1. The gravy train is coming off of the tracks on the trestle. Why? Because everyone that has been riding on it has been so myopic that they forgot to realize that they spent all of the money in the dining car and they forgot to allocate funds to finish the bridge. Nice work gang.

  2. “Fullerton is under attack by a sclerotic trio of antiquated imbeciles who will never take responsibility for their own failure of leadership.”

    LOL!!!

  3. Excellent entry! Valid points for the Recall and would have been great to read at the last council meeting after Red-Shirt praised Heehaw and gang.

  4. Tune in to a council meeting and just listen to Bruce Whitaker, then listen to Jones and Bankhead (Mckinley really doesn’t say anything). The old dopes have nothing illuminating to say, they just sputter excuses. Whitaker asks pointed, intelligent questions of the staff, and points out glaring flaws in the accepted reasoning of the lazy, stupid council majority. Yes, it’s an attack of official lethargy that can only be repelled with a recall.

      1. Though she takes pains to stay on good terms with the staff, Silva has been much more critical of many of their reccomendations than the three stooges have been. Most notably, she refused to support the illegal expansion of the redevelopment area, and actually joined Whitaker in opposing an extension for the idiotic Amerige Court project last Tuesday. No one gets a free pass, but she’s much more informed and involved than the snoring trio have ever been or ever will be.

  5. we, the good people of Fullerton,, are under attack and from the stories read on this blog site, for many years. yet, FFFF’s best weapon in its fight for truth and desire to restore representative government has been its thorough research and diligence monitoring city council meetings. though tedious,reviewing present and past documents that link the current nefarious cast found wandering in and out of our town’s government

  6. Interrupte, though tedious reviewing present and past documents and diligence monitoring city council meetings will show the nefarious dealings, characters who blight our city’s government

  7. It’s time for the citizens of Fullerton to think about Un-incorporating and to give up the city charter. The city previously known as Fullerton would be so much better off if it was run by the County. look at how well run most of these cities in South Orange County. I feel that we have currently no people qualified to lead the city under its current condition. Obviously the citizens of Fullerton aren’t capable of selecting qualified candidates to lead the city.

    1. Obviously the citizens of Fullerton aren’t capable of selecting qualified candidates to lead the city.

      I was going to skewer you but you and Ron Thomas have a point. We have Boss Hog, a sociopath ex-cop, a really old guy who can barely stay awake and a double speaking authoritarian. We only have one normal person on the council.

      Overall the council is a joke, the police department is a joke and the city is a dumping ground for sex offenders and bar hoppers.

      The people currently in office reflects on the lack of common sense of the voters.

      1. We WEREN’T capable of selecting qualified candidates. We have seen the light, this will never happen again. I won’t rest until EVERY person in Fullerton public office is gone.

        IMO, everyone should feel the same, and if you don’t, there are high odds that you must have some self-serving agenda….or you are just plain oblivious.

    2. Un-incorporating and giving up a city charter are two different things.The County is the premire form of local government until a city incorporates itself to form its own local government. If I am not mistaken, fullerton was first incorporatd when it was a part of Los Angeles County. When Orange County split from LA County, Fullerton was one of, I think, five existing cities.

      Most cities are general law cities. That is, they have only the powers that the State of California mandates. A city may become a charter city, in which case the city may adopt any power except those that are prohibited by the State.

      A separate issue is whether a city has its own police department or contracts with the Orange County Sheriff for services.

      All of the South Orange County Cities are incorporated, or they would not be cities. Some may have charters, I do not know. I did not know Fullerton had a charter. It was a general law city when I lived there. They may have snuck a charter past me after I left.

      Although all South Orange County cities are incorporatd and some may have charters, I believe that all but two contract with OC Sheriff Department for poliice services.

      Disincorporating a city the size and age of Fullerton would be unprecedented, contrary to what the State and County want, and probably unproductive. Giving up a city charter (if one exists) would also be unprecedented, would cause little harm but might do little good. Giving up its own police department in order to contract with the OC Sheriff for police services is something many other cities in the state have done for cost savings and for an increase in professionalism.

    Fullertonians were hoodwinked in the past by glossy voter pamphlets with ringing endorsements of the candidates by the public safety departments that we’d entrusted our safety to. I don’t think that many of us will renew our prescriptions for this foul tasting medicine we’ve been prescibed in the past, and will instead we’ll probably all make a decision based on what our own personal conscience tells us to do, rather than rely on either political party to shove their own personal choices or agendas down our collective throats.
