I'm not POLLYANNA, and there is no cotton candy or gum drops; or fairy tales for that matter. I do live in a town that is starting to get it together, and it is doing that by replacing the constant bickering and name calling with a little thing called respect. Your attitude of the biggest cities in the world talk like this, this isn't a Church Social, this forum and talk radio is a place to voice their opinions anonymously, and we don't call someone a name to their face, dosen't solve anything. It breeds and fosters ill will among your citizens. I am not butting in on anyones behalf, merely making an observation, one that you are obviously to filled with hate to see. I have even managed to disagree with you without insulting you or calling you names. You might try it some time, you could be amazed at how well it works.

Scarey place to live actually. The way you people talk about one another why would any decent person subject themself to the headache that is Pelican Bay politics? In your town it's damned if you do, and damned if you don't: It's a lose, lose situation.
In a perfect world, all the council members would vote the same every time. All 'Ayes' or all 'Nays'. Actually in a Utopia town, no one votes. The rules never change from the way it was set-up and new things (issues) are never allowed.
An ADULT should know that council votes will be split on issues nearly every time. 2 vs 3...or...1 vs 4 . The adult who didn't get their way, needs to live with it,get out, or not run next time. But when they start pointing fingers, calling names, calling people out, walking out, or going to the newspapers with lies, they are subjecting themselves to look like immature sore losers. NOT ADULT
How would you know who the decent people here are? You say you don't live here. You are putting down the whole city of PB ='the pot calling the kettle black' But you don't like it if we do the same!

I do have several friends who live in PB and we talk quite often, but that is niether here nor there. This topix does come up on my city forum. What I read on here tends to confirm what my friends say, and my overall opinion of PB. I know there are decent people that live there, the same as there are not so decent people living there. Not to mention the fact that I haven't been putting PB down near as much as you people who live there, and I haven't said anything that isn't true. While you may not like hearing what I say, it is the truth. So if you do the same as me and voice your opinion in a respectful manner(which you have just done) while I may not like your opinion I will respect it and your right to have it.

While you may not like hearing what "I SAY", IT IS THE TRUTH! Who said I was looking for your respect? Don't want it. Don't need it. I don't respect your opinion about PB because you don't live here, as you have admitted. That gives me all the reason in the world not to respect your opinion about these matters.
You have a 'GOD COMPLEX'
You put out a lot of 'Holier than Thou' Crap. That's exactly what we're talking about here on this thread. In order to get respect you have to give respect. Robin and others haven't been respectful to the other town council members, mayor, secretary, police, etc., etc. She gives no respect to others. She has no respect for the LAW.
If you have respect issues then you have no need to read other cities' posts that, you admit, you get second-hand info about. Your friends are obviously a problem for you and PB. We know who they are now and what their plans have been.

LOOK OUT......Here's some disrespect coming your way!
1. You surf the topixs looking for people and places to JUDGE!
2. You thrive on CONFLICT - mostly what you can create.
3. You are a LUNATIC!
4. You are a LIAR about this coming up on your city forum!

I do not create conflict, am not a lunitic, and am not a liar about this coming up on my city topix or anything else. My friends are not a problem for me or PB. So you can go ahead and be the joke of Tarrant Co. That would seem to be your aim, so if you niether need or want respect, Take your school drop out mentality, and continue to make a fool out of yourself. While I don't know this Robin person, if the PB city officials are anything like you, I CAN UNDERSTAND why she would have no respect for them, because you sir are an idiot.

And you got all this information from a PB police officer. With all the questions about a complete lack of ethics in that department I don't think I would take the officers word as gospel. Business as usual in The Bay.
Hey,,,,Respectful, Truthful TEXAN,
Did you put down the pb police dept here in this post?
NOT VERY RESPECTFUL of YOU!
Especially sense you don't know them.

I only know what I read in the papers, and their ethics are questioned quite often. I do not now nor have I ever lived in PB, your forum does come up on my towns Topix Forum. I do have a life, I do not live in a hole, and I would love to give you a chance to shut me up Jerk Wad. It is people like you that cause decent people to leave The Bay with all possible haste.
Hey...Respectful, Truthful TEXAN,
Did you bash the PB police dept again?
Did you call this person a Jerk Wad?

I did not put down the PBPD, merely stated that their ethics had been questioned on numerous occasions(not by me) TRUTH Oh Yes it's since not sense. I said who is the Garbage, I didn't say anyone was Garbage, once again I did not put down the PBPD, merely stated that their ethics had been questioned a good many time (again not by me) still the TRUTH. And you got me I did call that person a Jerk Wad, SO I'M NOT PERFECT, NEITHER ARE YOU. But I do not live in the joke of Tarrant Co. and unlike you I do not contribute to the joke, heck you could even be the punch line. Ooooops not very respectful of me was it?
