Awwwwww, poor BJ!!! You obviously have me confused with someone else. "HIDING behind a pseudonym..."???? I think NOT!!!DONNY B WRITES: "BJ... Of course I can make the point that Ryan has made the most of his opportunities and education. He's successful, making a good living, and contributing to the community. No one, let alone Ryan Coonerty, have to explain themselves to the likes of you. Your continued jabs at him and your distortions and fabrications about him just telegraph to the world your extreme jealousy of his success. You're a loser and you contribute nothing of benefit to society."
BECKY: STOP CALLING ME BJ!!!! I've told you it's offensive and I've repeatedly asked you to stop. Yet...you RUDELY persist. Why is that? Can't you stop NAME-CALLING? Do you have zero standards or are you just incapable of self-control?
I find your behavior to be bullying. That makes you a coward too, since bullies are ALWAYS cowards. HIDING behind a pseudonym proves your cowardice. I am not . I use my REAL NAME because I stand behind my statements.
re: RYAN COONERTY
He is obviously successful. But I ONLY attribute that to his silver spoon. His only real accomplishments have been negative. He has pushed for and gotten passed more anti-homeless legislation (and undemocratic as well) than any other councilmember in recent memory.
I am not jealous of him. You actually think I aspire to be the son of a local bookseller? I'm lots older than he is. I'm a parent and he's not. And I haven't had his silver spoon. What bugs me most about RYAN is the immense popularity he has in Santa Cruz. That just sickens my stomach as I realize how many anti-homeless citizens we have living here in "liberal" "progressive" Santa Cruz.
I only hope that history will exonerate me and condemn him, like the framers of Black Laws and Jim Crow laws are condemned today.
Regarding Ryan's success... While he may have had certain opportunities presented to him, the point is, he worked hard and persevered to make them come to fruition. Unlike so many others who have opportunities/sillver spoons (like your buddy Norse) and throw them away. Norse couldn't/wouldn't even finish college.
Yes, you are jealous of Ryan. He's successful, you're NOT!!! He contributes to society, you DON'T!!! He's made something of his life, you HAVEN'T!!!
