Has Charlottesville gotten any money from the fed to fight gang related crime?

If not, why not?

I think this is a story that our local news organizations would be well advised to follow up on..........

Perhaps HoHo Huja and Holly Dread should be looking for some of that federal money to fight Ghanaian-based internet crime.

Maybe we should have some federal grant money spent to have the FBI examine the water fountains in city hall to see if a prankster has pumped psychedelic drugs into them? What else could explain the bizarre behavior and circus like priority list that our city council has had for too many years now?

Whatever happened to the idea of the city council taking care of city problems like the crumbling roads, trees that are now allowed to grow through power lines all over town so that wind whipped branches can easily knock out power, ancient water pipes that always need fixing, etc, etc, etc. We have five part time dilettantes that obviously have way too much time, and taxpayer money, on their hands and the time has come to get a DIRECTLY elected mayor who answers to the taxpayer instead of this pathetic wannabe California encounter group that some call a city council.

Remember the alternative fuel buses that this town spent a fortune on? The ones that couldn't go up Preston Avenue if more than a dozen people were in the bus? The people had to get out of the bus and walk so the thing could wheeze up to the top of the hill! Then, rather than tell the whole story to the public, the vehicles were quietly moved from city property to city property for years until most people forgot about them at which point they were quietly disposed of! For years now the doltish public has allowed city hall to pretend that Cville is the starship Enterprise and we are on a five year (don't I wish!) mission to waste as much money on liberal fantasy pipe dreams as the council can fantasize about!!!!! How much money has been lavished on studies, feel good about ourselves group gropes on racial harmony, and assorted similar exercises in self flagellation??? Who can forget Dave and his signs about TIBET???????

Sane financial voters take note of all this because this just might be where the mass psychosis of socialism is going to take all of us in the future!!!!!!!
