"... a chump motherfucker and a piece of shit at best ..."

Our citizen activists, who have been collecting signatures in an effort to force city council to repeal the recently passed ordinance regarding head shops within the city limits, are in a bit of a tizzy over on Facebook, and possibly in other venues as well. Certainly, it's typical of the Pinche Cabrones mindset we see with these people.

It seems that they failed to comply with state law in their filing of the petition and signatures. Therefore, the petition and the signatures were rejected.

This has led to the usual irrational rhetoric we have come to expect from this collection of civic-minded residents of The Smile Hi.

For example, we have a person purporting to be Joe Carson, Jr, over on Facebook, coming somewhat unhinged over the rejection, and commenting on City Attorney Phil Malouff's role: "... Phil Malouff is a chump motherfucker and a piece of shit at best ...".

Does Mr. Carson's view represent the view of others associated with this 'movement?' It would appear so, for there is no objection to the comment, and in fact, others seem to be of the same mindset.

Rather than simply admit to screwing the pooch, so to speak, by failing to comply with the state law in this matter ... they blame city council and other city officials for their own failing.

For example, a person purporting to be Janice Lusk-Huff seems to indicate the existence of some sort of conspiracy between Malouff and our current mayor: "I definitely feel you [Klob] were set up from the get go, and that they had this brewing while you were gathering signatures, knowing that this is where you might fail."

Huh. Well, at least Lusk-Huff acknowledges that Klob failed ... but it was the fault of co-conspirators Malouff and Rizzuto. That's some interesting reasoning.

But we are not to worry in future, for when Mike Moreno is elected mayor in the upcoming election, apparently we won't have to worry about such trivialities as complying with the law. As a person purporting to be Deanna Salas states: "When Mr. Moreno is elected mayor this shit will not be happening to us LJ citizens."

Is that right, Mr. Moreno? LJ residents will not have to be concerned about elected officials complying with the law under your administration? Or will legal compliance be a pick-and-choose operation, based on who you are and who you know?

"Beth Klob Everything had to be done exactly as specified because it is CO election law ... BUT ...... this is a small town....Jan Schooley and Phil Malouff have known Tim since he was a small child. If these petitions had been to get either of them a pay raise do you think they'd be thrown out for lack of a staple or would one of them call Tim with instructions on how to fix it?"

It's the law BUT ...  and then, our purported Beth Klob goes on to presume the likelihood of criminal behavior - another conspiracy - between Schooley and Malouff. Is this really the quality of thinking we have in the mayoral candidate's followers?

Then we have someone purporting to be Bob Gleason, who is apparently 60-ish going on 12, commenting:

"Hey Tim, I am still with you. I grew up in the sixties, we get blamed for everything, when in reality we changed the world. They may have won the battle but they haven't won the WAR. Let's regroup & organize and with [sic] the WAR. Besides, if it isn't challenging it's not fun. Bring on the FUN BABY."

I pawed around in my old footlocker, looking for my old rose-colored granny glasses, a tie-died t-shirt, bell-bottomed flower trousers, and my Cheech and Chong headband. Alas, all I found was an old jungle fatigue shirt with "Không bắn tôi biết nhiều bí mật!" on the back of it. Say, Bob, I rather doubt that you changed much of the world while sitting on your ass on a train somewhere, but if it makes you feel righteous to make that claim, have at it. I have to wonder, though ... who you are going to WAR with. Citizens who oppose you? Elected officials? Well ... maybe I should break out my old SDS t-shirt and regress back into my childhood as well. That seems to be what it takes to be a 'leader' in The Smile Hi these days.

I suppose there will be quite the crowd at council meeting Tuesday evening. I wonder, though, if any of these shit-talkers will have the balls to call Malouff a 'motherfucker' or 'piece of shit' to his face. Or accuse the mayor of participating in a criminal conspiracy to interfere with a political petition process. Or insult Ms. Schooley by wondering about her potential for engaging in criminal activity?

Nah ... that would take some balls. There's lots of mouth with this crowd, but no balls. No manners, either, but that's another story.

Maybe they'll just toke themselves into a stupor and miss the council meeting altogether.
