Regional Planning Commissions denied extension

Original post made on Aug 11, 2009

While I agree that over development is definately not in the interest of our community. We need to justify our reasoning instead of bashing groups of people. All types of people deserve to have a nice place to live and raise a family.

Hey Rick, Reviewing your last 3 or 4 comments on various subjects...you tend to stray into a angry mode. No offense, but I think you may need some "Anger Management Classes".

Let's sit back and see who Mary Piepho selects for the MAC, and more importantly, who she overlooks. That will tell the story...

Anger is the natural reaction of a man who feels his town is being invaded by criminals and other threats to his family. This is not about taxes or politics. To me, this is about making sure that there's not another innocent murdered kid in my community. Rylan Fuchs died at the hands of, for lack of a better word, a liberal agenda. This makes me furious. And I'll tell ya one thing, my anger has served me well.

One final thing. You're right Kathy that everyone deserves a nice safe place to live. However that is not accomplished by bringing crime into the last bastion of safety in contra costa

Rick...correct me if I'm wrong but I think the weekly removed your comments about the planning commission. If that's correct, that's wrong.
BTW, I hear you and I hope a lot of others wake up and smell the rose's or they won't wake up at all.

Actually, anger is considered a secondary emotion. It usually is a result of fear, ignorance, or self-consciousness. Really, look it up!

Reader, where'd you learn that, in the Idiot's Guide to Psychobabble? Why don't you just neuter yourself and be done with it

Leonard, thanks for the pep talk. These libs do a good job of making me feel sometimes like only people I know agree with me. Every time someone I don't know gets my back, I realize more and more that I'm not crazy. For that, you have my endless appreciation
