You are right! All social programs will go down once our gods party is back in power. All we have to do is wait and plan. The vote is in the bag once we get all those people out of voting. The plan is working and we will see the end of the godless medicaire, socialost security, foodstamps from hell, disabled and gay abortions in the state house, the war against xmas and stalinist union mongers. God bless us all, except them.

Gene Murabito acted once again like a complete PIG, but who really care he just has a ugly little man's pig personality anyway.

ED gave it right back to a evil person on the Glendora, California city council.

Once again the entire Glendora city council, Judy Nelson, Gene Murabito, Joseph Santoro, Karen Davis and Douglas Tessitor are complete idiots.

Tuesday June 25, 2013 city council meeting was the last straw in their insanity act they put on for the public at large who can stomach watching them act stupid all night long.

The act includes double talk, stupid talk, ignorant talk and just plain crazy talk form each of the Glendora, California city council member's.

It's cast in concrete NOW.

So the Glendora, California city council can bark at the moon and roll in the elephant dung!

It's easy to tell that you are not the real Ronald from Long Beach, because the real Ronald does not respond to the inane ramblings of the disruptive taxpayer supported schizophrenic from Azusa/Covina.

Time to start a new topix:

If you want to see the 4th stage of the John Gordon Hillside destruction in the foothills of Glendora, California.,

http://www.hoffmanland.com/listing-center.asp ...

There are two open space destruction projects supported by the Entire City Council and City Manager and of course Stanley Wong and John Gordon, Stanley Wong worked for Glendora and John Gordon use to be a mayor an city council man.

Now they just destroy the foothills of Glendora, California.

another REASON NOT TO DO BUSINESS WITH communist china:

Starnes had said HE arrived in Beijing last week to lay off the last 30 people, Workers in other divisions started demanding similar severance packages.

About 80 workers at the plant blocked exits since then. At the beginning of his captivity, he said, they had deprived him of sleep by shining bright lights and banging on windows of his office.

What else do you expect from Communists - never trust them an inch.

According to The National Bureau of Economic Research, another oppressive Government tax should be imposed on the increasingly impoverished minority of Americans who actually pay taxes. This time the Orwellian justification is "to fight obesity".

Long Beachers are at the epicenter of the revolutionary movement. They are keenly aware of just how this latest call to escalate the war against the taxpayer would be conducted. The Lowenthal grocery bag harassment tax is probably the best example.

Hungry grocery eaters who purchase groceries in unionized Council controlled Long Beach grocery stores are charged a harassment tax that - as "the program" becomes "old news" - is expected to escalate to a level that causes real pain. Meanwhile, the voting majority of dangerous tax eaters and taxpayer supported Thug people are, and will continue to be, provided "free" grocery carry bags, the cost of which is incorporated into the price of food that is charged the minority of Long Beachers who do not purchase their groceries with expensive taxpayer funded food stamps.

The obesity "epidemic" is the consequence of pandering Government politicians laundering hard earned taxpayer money to provide "free food" to the voting majority.

The National Bureau of Economic Research is a wealthy Government tax-free "non profit" organization that escapes taxation for moneys used to pay the operators of that organization.

Herewith is a link to the financial statement of The National Bureau of Economic Research. Note the revenue entry of $35,066,696 that is stated - but not broken down - as "Grants and contracts". Presumably "Grants" in that context includes hard earned taxpayer money, either in the form of direct "grants", as well as tax deductible "contributions" from wealthy business operators.

It's about time that SoCal Edison got rid of the TWIN death reactors.

San Onofre nuclear power plant are laying off 600 employees as the troubled facility begins to shut down for good. About 400 employees will remain to continue the shutdown, which could take years.

The twin reactors were shut down last year and remained closed after the discovery of excessive wear in pipes that carry radioactive water, along with a potential for further environmental destruction to take place.

Good point. Although Government tax-exempt "Christian" churches will gradually "come around" to embrace Big Government's efforts to impose Homosexuality on the nation, it is unlikely the Taliban will.

As a Ronald wannabe from Long Beach, please answer us this. We note this morning you have been going bonkers on the Homosexual thread. Have you been "medicating" on illegal substances revolutionary Council attempted to "legalize" through the back-door "regulatory" route, or are you taking your usual dangerous drugs that were prescribed you by your Government "doctor"?
