Play It Again, Dick
One might ask the question, “How in the world did Fullerton get stuck with not one, but two Dick Jones”?
This spectacle of Doc HeeHaw sharing his consternated confusion over the illegal water tax boils down to this: his lawyer, Attorney Dick tells him it is illegal and should be got rid of (15 years too late, of course); and Doc Dick agrees. His solution? Change the name of the tax!
Can it be possible that he actually believes the idiocy that tumbles out of his yapper? When it comes to muddled, loud, Southern-fried buffoonery there’s just no beating F. Dick Jones.

I hate the Dicks…..just those two anyway.
00:01:10 to 00:01:20 tells the whole story.
how did their parents know?
Hey, that’s a great idea. Change the name, but keep the tax!!
When I used to smoke, I would read the different warnings on the box: “Surgeon General’s Warning-Smoking may cause low birth weight or premature birth.” I would always get those instead of the ones that said “smoking may cause lung cancer.” HA!!
“Dick” the attorney is a walking advertisement for the benefits of “Lifestyle Lift”…, “Dick” the councilmember is a walking advertisement for Jenny Craig/NutriSystem/Weightwatchers as well as “LifeStyle Lift”…
Our so called leadership is stage IV terminal as it has become metastatic. The recall is no ordinary cancer treatment. We are using laetrile instead of 5-fluoro-uracil so as to not harm the patient just the tumors with the hair pieces.
Goldarnit! Which one a’ them fellers is me?
Dick Jones seems to be evading the real issues here. He states he thinks some of the money goes to repairs incase a water pipe breaks. I’m sure he knows very well where most of that moneys been going. The other Jones who seems to have a stellar knowledge of all the latest laws to the detail seems very disinterested wether the knowledge of these fees are properly acted on or not but seems content only with his abilty to show the facts to the detail with the same emotion as a computer print out.
Its not knowledge or appearance the appearance of leadership we need but people who really care about the people of the city and are willing to serve thier best intrests.
I wonder what percentage of the fullerton population even give a care if the city leaders care.
“nexus” is that code for a city must have a reasonable need for money to maintain a necessary infrastructure to justify increased taxes? So, I may infer that the city of Fullerton increased its water tax to directly upgrade its water services so it may safely deliver water to the community.
And as we, the good people of fullerton know, this water tax did not upgrade or improve our delivery of water, instead it was used to pad municipal employees salaries, pensions.
What Dick’s attorney does not want to say is the Supreme Court struck down a city’s attempt to raise taxes on its community so its employees may get this money for personal use.
Huh? Now dick Jones says the increased water tax over the past decade was not used to improve fullerton’s water pipes but instead used to buy water so now we, the good people of fullerton, still need this tax to repair the pipes. Like McKinley, Jones is the political fight for his life and instead of ending this tax and winning the hearts and minds of fullerton, he, like McKinley, digs in his heels on this issue and then reveals fullerton’s water delivery system is in great disrepair. Like MckInley, Jones must have a personal vested interest in this illegal water tax and for some reason I link it to redevelopment funds and personal investment in this now dead government sponsored enterprise. why do I believe Mckinley , Jones et al have made personal profit off of redevelopment real estate? I sense that without this extra tax, Jones, Bankhead, Mckinley and their cronies will be exposed for diverting the city’s revenue from maintining its infrastructure to invest in real estate during the real estate bubble. again, this is my conjecture based on what I have gained from various media sources
A new drinking game…has just been created, this douche bag jones ( atty)…he says nexus- about 3 times per city council meeting, and he throws in a coupla, not to deter from the argument-gawd he makes me madder than that scarecrow Joe Felz.
Again, does this fool have a question to ask or a series of statements followed by: Is that right?
Jeeezus he could keep doing that all night. Good thing somebody finally told him to shut up.
Rare photo of the two Dicks together, before
a council meeting.
If you combine those to characters you get the old city manager.
I can’t help but think of his former patients who might have asked legitimate questions regarding their health. He probably came up with all kinds of nonsense explaining their medical conditions, but never actually giving them an answer. I know he’s getting up there in age, but sometimes a person’s personality quirks become even more pronounced in advanced age. I know this from personal experience with my father.
He sure he is entertaining though.
I actually spoke with someone who told me ol’ Doc Jones did a very good cosmetic job on their child’s injury, but this person still didn’t want him on the council.
I don’t blame Atty Jones for any of the cities problems, his only job is to know the law and advise. It is the council’s fault for not acting and/or taking Atty Jones’ advise when it wasn’t wise to do so.
Oh stop it. As an officer of the court and a member of the Bar he has professional obligations, too, beyond kissing those withered old asses. He never said a word about the illegality during all those years – and yes the subject did come up.
The city atty, says- nothing and hides in his corner, when asked a question, he looks shocked and scared, he says nexus and a few other TV lawyer lines, he doesnt defend us, and has cost us how much money this year alone. Steller job- why are we paying him again? He doesnt defend us, he just says what ever, the three stooges and the me-ho, say. Another,guy that better get his resume in order, your job is no longer needed- move along.
