Appeals Court Slaps Fullerton… Again

Twice now the City of Fullerton has managed to baffle a judge with bullshit and get the judge to issue a prior restraint against myself, David and this blog stopping us from publishing “secret city hall documents”. Twice now the city has boasted of their win only to be slapped down by the CA Appellate […]

Joe Felz in the News. Again.

Entertainers and politicians are often cited as saying there is no such thing as bad publicity. However, former Fullerton City Manager Joe Burt Felz is not a professional politician or entertainer, although his political machinations and his alcohol-induced behavior have been cause for entertainment. You will certainly recall Felz’s now infamous “Wild Ride” in which […]

Say Goodnight Paulette

Yesterday a lot of chickens fluttered home to roost for sign thief and fake carpetbagger Paulette Marshall Chaffee. After spending hundreds of thousands of bucks for a part time job on the county’s Board of Education, she was defeated, and defeated badly. The job goes to La Habra’s Tim Shaw, another candidate who unloaded a […]

Some poor dopes think that history repeats itself, and yet there are times when it’s hard to argue the point, as when the City Deciders of Fullerton wade out into the same quicksand again and again and again. I’m referring to the tedious habit of entering into lame exclusive agreements for stupid projects involving public […]

Fullerton’s Veritable Serpico Problem

Fullerton, like most departments, has a problem reminiscent of Serpico and this problem is years in the making. This problem is part of the story of the sordid “Culture of Corruption” that was documented after the Kelly Thomas beating. This veritable Serpico problem is a cancer within the system where once in uniform even good […]

Meanwhile, Back @ The Ranch – Part 3

Fighting your own incompetent and belligerent government can be distracting. And so rather than be distracted, I’ve been playing catch-up with some more of the doings of our idiocracy since the City’s legal lizards tried to stomp on our 1st Amendment rights. Back on October 1, our esteemed council took on the business of people […]
