Charlotte’s Web

On a special weekend Edition of Plausibly Live, Dave awakens to a recounting of the tale of Charlotte’s Web, which leads to him reading an article about Der Mayor “calling for a Do-Over” for the Wood Colony (where many spiders and probably pigs live) debacle.

MrKq0.So.11Der Mayor says that he is definitely not, no way, no how, despite the fact that he is in a runoff election with the son-of-Satan Republican opponent, doing this for some mere political advantage.

But he is very careful with his language and is in truth, like a spider luring a fly to its web, Pulling a Denham. Even as he speaks, the tanks are still on the borders with Salidavakia…

That’s how Dave’s last Sunday before the Super Bowl gets rolling…

At Least Somebody Showed Up

“Virtue in a republic is a most simple thing: it is a love of the republic; it is a sensation, and not a consequence of acquired knowledge: a sensation that may be felt by the meanest as well as by the highest person in the state.” – Monteesquieu

Measure-G-logo-smallFor the second time in two years, Modesto voters – at least the ones who bothered to show up yesterday – have rejected Der Mayor’s call for higher taxes and more spending. This time the measure got thumped, 56-44. Already Der Mayor has begun with the veiled threats and innuendo that this time he really means that there will be slashing and cutting retaliations. At least until he buddies in the MPOA and Fire Unions tell him to stop. Perhaps the most telling line from the article is the last one, in which candidates claim that voters were telling them that they simply do not trust City Hall with the money.

That is not likely to change even with three new Council Members being elected yesterday (Kristi Au You, Mani Grewal and Doug Ridenour), as most of the new comers are seen as “insiders,” likely to buddy up with Unions and developers over voters. Whether that actually happens or not remains to be seen. But the fact is that the Council of the last four years – and even before that – has given voters all over the area reason after reason to not trust them. Read the rest of this entry

Chicken in the Lemonade

B9317510971Z.1_20150527182956_000_GM8AR9NSH.1-0People who Dave is not include the weird, resurrected Kentucky Fried Colonel, filmmaker and liberal Michael Moore, and the DiTech Guy.

A Bay Area man almost pulls off the ultimate Stolen Valor Scam. He got caught on the deck of the USS Hornet in Alameda.

There is a problem with the whole Bruce/Cailtlyn Jenner story, but it’s not whatever Bruce decided to do to become Caitlyn.

The FIFA Vice-President has iron clad proof that he is innocent of all the charges and proof (equally iron clad) that this is all the USA out to get him over our failed 2015 World Cup bid.

Yellowstone National Park has recommended that you stay at least 25 yards away from the Bison. Why? Because it turns out that Bison are faster than you…

And Der Mayor pitches his fraudulent “Safety Tax” again. He knows that he is misleading and this this is a General Fund tax that is about REVENUE, not SAFETY. But.. if he can get just 50%+1 of voters to believe him…
