You know, I have been accused of slamming Wylie's conservatives in sort of a conservative on conservative virtual conundrum. Well that's choice.
I suppose that would make sense if you were a
City leader on the receiving end of my Befuddled Hall of Shame and were
attempting to pass yourself off as a conservative like so many try. You
would think they would have figured it out by now that I’m just too damn smart
for those tricks.
Sometimes people think that if they walk like
a duck and quack like a duck long enough, that others will think they are a
duck. I don't assess people on such a shallow level. I take a
deeper look and delve into their past behavior and in the case of our Wylie
City Council members I take a look at their past voting record. One or two
votes with the heart I totally get and does not a liberal make. Continued
votes that sabotage any chance of tax cuts and spending cuts are another thing
Even if Mayor Eric Hogue, Councilman Rick
White, Mayor Pro Tem Red Byboth, and Councilwoman Kathy Spillyards were wearing
Dorothy's ruby red slippers and clicking their heels repeating, "I am a
conservative, I am a conservative, I am a conservative." It wouldn't
make it so. Why? Because they continually vote to spend without an
equal reduction and they continually support liberal candidates.
Case in point; just how many times does
Gilbert Tamez need to be put in the campaign for City Council? I mean, why bother taking those turquois
signs down? I think we should give them
some Malibu lighting at night just for mood.
Didn't we vote no on him at least 3 other times? Kind of like
those damn bonds we keep voting down. Need
I remind anyone of the Same Bond signs that were all over the City last go
around with the WISD bondage à trois.
Our City leaders have proven themselves to be
nothing more than a bunch of RINOs sitting in the Council Chambers voting to
spend, spend, spend. Our debt is
ridiculous, with more coming should we build that promised 4th
Firehouse. I think I’m going to have
some T-Shirts made up with Rhinoceroses on them and hand them out at Council
meetings. Let me know your size next
time you see me, will you?
When was the last time your tax statement
went down in the City of Wylie? You will be hard pressed to find tax
breaks, yet we have more homes than we ever have and we have more businesses
than we ever have and our tax revenue is off the charts compared to say, ten
years ago. Now consider what they spend it on? A Recreation Center
which was designed to run in the red indefinitely, handing a building over to
the seniors and it sits empty for over a year now with no revenue coming in to
pay for that building, passing out funds to non-profits without requesting
their financials, wanting to spend rainy day funds knowing full well that they
want to bring on a 4th Fire Station and have to pay for it somehow, voting in
low-income housing that will do nothing for our home values. These are the makings of true bleeding heart
liberals, not the conservatives they are pimping themselves as.
As I pulled the Republican and Democrat
primary votes for the last election, I saw all the Council member names except
one on the Republican Primary list. So let me get this straight.
They vote Republican at the national level and expect fiscal responsibility out
of Washington DC but they don't live that locally? Really? Doesn't that
cause them a serious case of cognitive dissonance runs or at least a nose bleed
According to an advisor, it seems that Alicia
White, administrator of the Wylie View and wife of Wylie Councilman Rick White
is supporting both Nathan Scott and Gilbert Tamez in her tagline on the Wylie View. You know, that virtual rag where the dimwits
gather to pat each other on the head as they drool. Go figure Councilman
Rick White and his wife would be supporting two liberals. RINO at its
The Wylie Chamber of Commerce Connection
Magazine, the one I usually just throw away because the writing is so boring,
has a half page advertisement with Nathan Scott and Gilbert Tamez side by
side. I’m surprised there isn’t a photo
of the two of them hugging. I cannot believe the mild mannered Gilbert
has aligned himself with the wife hitting Nathan. This alone makes it
obvious the two liberals are clinging to each other for dual support.
Meanwhile, their campaign signs litter the
yards of all the RINOs in Wylie. Yup, Carter Porter and Red Byboth voted in the
Republican Primary in 2008 too. I know
Red is sporting Scott signs and since Carter wrote that nifty note pledging
eternal love and companionship to wife striker Scott on his website, I would
bet I could find one down Carter’s street too.
This is precisely the crap I am talking
about. Either they are conservatives or they are liberals and what I see
are a bunch of wolves in sheep's clothing running the city.
So the good old boys in Wylie can continue to
complain that a conservative is bashing a conservative, but I'll pit my
conservative values against theirs any day and you won’t catch me having to
wear ruby red slippers in order to prove it to myself either.
