This town just keeps getting dumber.
Enjoy your erasure of history because you read a third hand account of a bad thing from 100 years ago. Enjoy your higher taxes pretending to be for “infrastructure” because the council pissed all of your money into the same salaries & pensions people are now demanding be defunded.
But just so you know – every time I hit a pothole in Fullerton I don’t blame the City Council – I blame you. I blame the voters who traded their own interests for a Full Sized candy bar from Fitzgerald at Halloween. I blame the voters who put race above ideas. I blame the divisive & petty partisan idiots who can’t be bothered to learn the facts of the things they scold people over online. Sure, the idiots on Council vote to ruin us all but you let them get away with it.
Enjoy your lockdowns. Enjoy your higher taxes. Enjoy fewer services. Enjoy more lies from City Hall and console yourself knowing that it’s never too late to find somebody else to blame for all of the horseshit you continue to support both tacitly and directly.
You’re yelling about police reform now, asking for support, standing with cardboard slogans in front of City Hall after actively insulting me and this blog for years. Over those very years we begged you to support the same things you magically discovered trending on Twitter last week thanks to a story on Fox News or CNN. Kick rocks. You weren’t MY ally then, what the hell makes you think I’m now yours?
I’m not your ally. I’m not your friend. I’m not your weapon to be pointed at council or the police. I’m just a dude who cares about things & is tired of having little to no backup.
I have met some great people in my reporting and activism. We’ve done some important work. Discovered some terrible things. I have some great friends thanks to this world. I’ve gotten support, financially and personally, over the City’s lawsuit against us. Those people know who they are – the rest of you however? Fuck off. I’m not running for office so I can quite comfortably tell you that I don’t give two shits what happens to you if you expect others to do all of the heavy lifting. Enjoy screaming at each other on Nextdoor or Facebook while things get progressively worse.
Fullerton isn’t my passion. This isn’t my job. Hell, I don’t own this site or control who posts to it – I’m literally just somebody who has things to say and since most of you don’t listen to anybody you disagree with I’m wondering about the point of even saying them. It’s about time I shrugged.
