Porko is Alive and Doing Well in East Ridge

“Lately East Ridge officials have touted the city’s financial strength, even buying a crumbling community pool for $120,000. Repairs for that pool could cost between $500,000 and $750,000, Whitson said last month.”

I suggest the pool be named “East Ridge Asleep-at-the-Wheel Cesspool.”

Here’s a suggestion. Hire the Waterhouse PR firm to tout it as “East Ridge Mineral Springs” with “Ducky Doody.”

East Ridge, remember the scene in “Frankenstein” when the villagers stormed the castle with pitchforks, swords, and torches? What are you waiting for?

    God forbid you let your local government actually do the things reasonably expected from a local government.

    Don’t expect and sympathy the next time East Ridge ENDS UP UNDER WATER due the spend nothing-tax nothing sentiment of its citizens, too cheap and stupid to buy the levy that would have prevented its current budget deficits.

      It’s not unreasonable to expect government to be un-corrupt, graft-free, no payola, no bag-men with cash, no “Speech Nazi’s, no political patronage, no hokey PR firm taking big bucks with nothing to show for it but invoices, no non-elected City Attorney using his own law firm to bilk taxpayers, no over-paid, under-worked City Council members to dine on the taxpayer’s dollars then scatter like cockroaches when hard questions are asked, . . .

      No, I’m being very reasonable since this is all done with my money, collected by coercion, with the backing of those who create their rules to their own advantage.

      It’s time to take ’em to the woodshed.
