Open the meetings to the public, or stop having meetings until the Shut Down is over

15 May

At about 1:30 this morning I was awakened by a ping from my husband’s cell phone. It’s startling – the damned thing vibrates across the window sill above our bed, zzzzzzzzz! I always think, it’s one of our kids, that wakes me up fast. 

No, it’s SPAM from Chico Engaged!

Thanks, very good post. Keep posting.

The article this SPAMMER was posting on was posted two months ago, “Do NOT amend Ordinance 2466!”  There hasn’t been a legitimate comment on that posting since I responded to CHATter Charles Withun 18 days ago. That’s why I get the pings – I comment or vote on other’s comments. I tried to disable the notifications on my account, but they just keep coming. At whatever hour of day or night they are working in “the botnet”. 

I’ve notified the clerk, and I’ve spoken with others who have also notified the clerk. I know the clerk’s office is working hard at getting this system to function, and they’re frustrated, sure, but why don’t they just tell the city manager it’s NOT WORKING, and get us back into regular meetings? 

I have made this point several times to council. At the last meeting, Sean Morgan made a limp-wristed gesture toward opening the meetings.

“”at the next possible meeting…I’m not saying ALLOW it… but discuss having public attendance…”   That, Folks, is called, “posturing for your peanut gallery“. The rest of them voted unanimously to approve Morgan’s little gesture, because it didn’t amount to anything. Close your fly, Mr. Morgan, the show’s over, and will soon be forgotten. 

The meetings either need to end until the Shut Down is over, or they need to end the Shut Down and let the public back into the meetings.

    Speaking of meetings…are our local tyrants…er…sorry…local rulers going to re-visit the bag ban?

    So now some of the grocery stores are giving out “single use” plastic bags for free…so is Schwabbie going to march down to those stores and start arresting people?

    Remember how Hell bent she was on outlawing those bags? And she and the rest of the tyrants did.

    So if “single use” plastic bags were so terrible why are they now allowing them? Why not keep using the re-usable bags Schwabbie and her fellow tyrants told us would save the planet?

    Maybe Schwabbie and the rest of our local tyrants should watch this

    It just proves our local rulers don’t know Jack Sh*t.

      thanks for bringing that up – every time I see a sign on a store saying, “please leave your reusable bags at home,” and then shove my groceries into a bag made from dead trees, I want to kick Ann right in the butt.

      Remember, you’re the one who brought up the fact that reusable bags carry stuff like norovirus. And here we are.

        The politicians have no idea what they are doing. And of course facts and truth always take a back seat to politics. Ignorant people who think they know what’s best for everyone and who are motivated not by facts and truth but by politics. Is it any wonder things are so screwed up? Politicians nearly always make a problem worse.

        Here’s an article about the pandemic of 1969 that someone sent me. That virus sounds very similar to SARS-Cov-2. But believe it or not, the country did not shut down. And politicians didn’t spend trillions they didn’t have to try to fight the virus and try to make up for shutting the economy down.

        I have heard about one pandemic after another, those I’ve experienced and others from friends, relatives and strangers on TV, but the government and media are still pushing panic.

        Somebody was talking about how the gas crisis of the 70’s affected people’s behavior – oh gee, later we found out, supplies were manipulated to drive up the price. We were told the rolling blackouts of the 90s were caused by us being energy hogs, and then we heard the Enron tapes.

        I can’t wait to see how this plays out. There’s an article in today’s ER about businesses that profited during the shutdown. Oh gee, didn’t see that coming 😉
