Joke not funny to council gadfly

Don Letcher still unhappy after 13 years of ranting

by Daniel DeBolt

Self-described gadfly Don Letcher is known for his weekly, sometimes daily, accusations of sundry city misconduct to local newspapers and city officials. But this week's angry rant from Letcher seems to strike at the core of his 13-year tiff with the city.

Letcher is just a paranoid man who dug his own hole, stepped in it, and covered himself up..........all by himself. Perhaps Mr. Letcher should let the Idea Farm guy park in his barracaded lot, so we only have to roll our eyes once between 101 and El Camino Real!

Don Letcher's problems are no surprise, since the State and inferiors are hard at fraud, waste, and abuse. No State, inferior, or other media will report, how Gov.Davis' 2000-2001 negotiations for deregulated energy deals have generated spiral cost inflation, and so bogus SJSU econ professor Tom Means enjoys, how Cal State fees go up all the time, but he doesn't explain how Davis aimed the negotiations, right through the May-June 2001 nuclear refurbishings, further inciting grid withholding, but causing review of comparative negligence, by California. Inferiors like Mtn.View keep refusing to admit, they are little speed-traps, with nasty, corrupt burgers, running the town, hiding liabilities, with dirty tricks.

Even Andy Cooper refuses to take a look around, to report on the AC. What chance is there, for an economic recovery, when so many dirty tricksters are getting paid, to hide the hole in the bottom of the ship of State? Even a former cop needs to watch out, all the time.

Don't believe there's inflation?

Why do the schools keep after our taxes, with repeated Measure "ABC" referendums?

Why are no borders protected, but war issues, since 2003?

Why did Michael Martello and MVPD get to run Mtn.View, while Reno 911 satire subjects ran County of Santa Clara, like fiefdoms?

Why do courts issue non-specific information, and attorneys continue, without discovery?

Don Letcher needs to worry, at council, since so many other persons just like to pay property taxes, and let the inflation dig away, at their property taxes, more and more and MORE.

Don't believe US, state, and inferior corruption is legendary and INFLATIONARY?

Seen Egypt, Tunis, and other riots, lately? The US supports the 1882 invasion of Palestine AND the apartheid State of Israel, which have incited two-and-a-half world wars, already, while the states issue bills of attainder and ex post facto laws, by profiteering, bicameral legislatures, for their profiteering, inflation-hiding inferiors, which oppress citizens.

Got Caltrain? They don't get to issue Measure ABC-Train, in bad faith. AMTRAK needed Obama to bailout, in 2010, but Caltrain is still doomed, by its inflationary 2007 labor deal.

Got Don Letcher? You only have a fraction of the "gadfly" media you need, to survive the 2012 anniversay, of the sinking of the HMS Titanic.

Don't miss out on the discussion!
