City council:?Just say no!

March 30, 2013
The Marietta Times

What part of "no" don't you understand? Today's news (March 22) of the Marietta City Council meeting, deciding to go forward with final designs for the intersection project at Pike, Greene and Seventh streets, goes to show that Council simply won't listen to the people of Marietta and Washington County. They won't listen to us when the citizens speak blatantly saying "no" to spending money on projects that are unneeded and only exist at the behest of state grant money that Council feels they "need" to spend after already blowing over 300 grand of the peoples' tax dollars on preliminary designs; Which in kind has lead to the very outrage which has been directed towards the Council by citizens who are telling their local representatives in government, No! Again, what part of no don't you understand? This issue is like talking to Sen. Dianne Feinstein over the 2nd Amendment and getting her to answer honestly, the question: What part of "Shall not be infringed" don't you understand? She can't, because she hasn't actually read the Constitution, doesn't have the brain capacity to know what the concept of liberty is (it doesn't guarantee safety!), and is a stubborn socialist hellbent on pandering to the United Nations Small Arms Treaty. Yet, I digress.
