That Man is the product of causes that had no prevision of the end they were achieving; that his origin, his growth, his hopes and fears, his loves and his beliefs, are but the outcome of accidental collocations of atoms; that no fire, no heroism, no intensity of thought and feeling, can preserve individual life beyond the grave; that all the labors of the ages, all the devotion, all the inspiration, all the noonday brightness of human genius, are destined to extinction in the vast death of the solar system, and that the whole temple of Man's achievement must inevitably be buried beneath the debris of a universe in ruins- all these things, if not quite beyond dispute, are yet so nearly certain that no philosophy which rejects them can hope to stand. Only within the scaffolding of these truths, only on the firm foundation of unyielding despair, can the soul's habitation henceforth be safely built.

Brief and powerless is Man's life; on him and all his race the slow, sure doom falls pitiless and dark. Blind to good and evil, reckless of destruction, omnipotent matter rolls on its relentless way; for Man, condemned to-day to lose his dearest, to-morrow himself to pass through the gate of darkness, it remains only to cherish, ere yet the blow falls, the lofty thoughts that ennoble his little day; disdaining the coward terrors of the slave of Fate, to worship at the shrine that his own hands have built; undismayed by the empire of chance, to preserve a mind free from the wanton tyranny that rules his outward life; proudly defiant of the irresistible forces that tolerate, for a moment, his knowledge and his condemnation, to sustain alone, a weary but unyielding Atlas, the world that his own ideals have fashioned despite the trampling march of unconscious power.

What the Judge Said

What the Judge had to say about the Clifford/Marshall LAW SUITE

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Terry Green said that, from his perspective, the lawsuit involves "small town politics" and "a campaign prank" and "should never go before a jury".

"For people on the sidelines it really looks silly," Green said. "This is a campaign prank. I just don't see a jury getting worked up about this."

"I think you ought to go out there and have a block party and shake hands," said Judge Green.

Virgina Marshall, Keleigh's mother, said Friday that she was "not bothered by the judge's comments about the case being silly, as her daughter's side is very interested in ending the case". "We have wanted to settle this for a long time..."

"We have wanted to settle this for a long time and Mr. Clifford has said it would not be in the interest of his political career," said Marshall.

Water rates will double in Glendora, CA. because those who say they are in charge wanted to let their friends build MacMansions in the foothills of Glendora. How will they be able to afford to support their friends homes perched high in on the slopes of Glendora's foothills.

Make 97% of the residents of Glendora pay through their taxes to make us Happy high on the slopes of the foothills of Glendora, CA.

These few say; thanks suckers!

Due to extreme abuse and anonymous libelous statements by City Council friends trying to clog this site we need to review each posting before putting it on the site. Send your comments to the above email address to have them added to this page.

Thank you for having this site John. It's a shame so many friends of the council hate the first amendment so much they will resort to making things up about you and clogging up our discussions.

During this weeks Glendora City Council meeting 5.27.2008 it was announced that a appeal to the already lost case involving L.A. County was in the works, with hopes of regaining $26.0 million dollars on appeal?

Except in the same documents presented at this meeting it was announced that at best the City of Glendora counld hope for was $12.0 million dollars, whats going on here? Are the citizens of Glendora being used for some wild scheme like they have in Las Vegas? And you know who wins there, the house. L.A. County is the house in this case so who's going to win and who's going to lose?

Rumor that was spread by Bob Kuhn & The State of California's Water was squashed by Glendora's City Manager Chris Jeffers, Glendora has plenty of water? Just that we have to PAY more for it, thats all?

Stupid is as stupid does!

Sounds more like Glendora's City Council's sixth member everyday!

Another Mark Gullick/Mark Smith/Big Bob,/ Been Counciled Public forum posting

This is the Guy the started the RV parking problem in Glendora

I got an official letter from the city stating the code violations and to comply "OR" they would then cite me. It seema that you dont get the citation until you don't comply. Now I have a whole 72 hours to remove 16 cars. I will scan the letter and put it up on my two car web sites including my hearse web site and you all can see it. They siad they will be conducting a on site inspection on the 6th of June. I will be video taping it of course.

I would like to ask each and every one of you here to write, email and call the city of Glendora and just say simply I'm so and so and I'm a collector of classic cars and are trying to preserve the history of the classic automobile. I'm calling in support of Mark Gullick a resident who you are trying to make him move classic cars out of his back lot.

Why would four GPD vehicles show up to take down "one" sign? Was this a memorial to his fine work last year?

You all remember, GMC called in the troops with there squad cars (4) to arrest two Glendora female residents. And for that mistake (some say mean spirited GMC) so for this act of ignornace of the law an his lost emotional control has landed him in Court, November 03, 2008 - Superior Court no less!

Why in the world would any business man or person want to invest in Glendora, California when it's been proven this city can't provide enough fresh water or power an sewer service to thse multi-story living units in the first place?

There is a way this city can provide all the above needs, but the cost will be placed squarely and firmly on the backs of the voting residents of Glendora! With out a doubt this has been the worst City Council an City Hall management team EVER, EVER allowed to run rampid through this cities natural resourses and funds.

Do you really believe the GOB's & GOG's care if the price of water increases at all? Why would they believe there was a water shortage. The water could raise to a $1.00 a gallon and it would not phase them at all.

The California water "commission" (sounds like organized crime) came up with the excellent idea of suspending their efforts to confiscate private property.

Did they perhaps read the article about the seizure of private property in the U.S.

Constitution during their coffee break?

Did they think about the reception they would receive if they tried ?

There are reasons for the 2nd Amendment in the Constitution.

This is one of them.

But Dugi and his jack-boot thugs in Glendora, California will keep trying anyway.
