So how about this big Boy Scout controversy? Seems the lefties hate the idea that the Boy Scouts cheered our President and booed the crooks and people who hate America. Seems OK to me. And all the same people who are ranting and raving about how horrible this is are the same people who are trying to destroy the Scouts by integrating sexual deviants into their ranks and removing their Christian ties which go back to their founding. So frankly, I don't care what they think.
What's everybody think about this Topeka Mayoral race? I don't know much about the candidates at this point. I guess it's not that important, we have a weak Mayor system. The Mayor is more of a figurehead, really. Doesn't vote. Doesn't really do much. I think it's more of a springboard for people who have higher political aspirations than anything else.
At least a couple of them are big downtown redevelopment backers it looks like. One of them owns property downtown. A sad little restaurant that looks closed when it's open, frankly. And I think he owns some other property. He probably sees big bucks pouring in when they get this hotel built that will probably be bankrupt in five years. So I think he probably is hoping to cash in and wants to be Mayor to steer money his way.
Another one I don't know about, but she is the leading fundraiser. And I see her signs all over downtown so I'm just guessing her money is coming from a small group of developers who own the entire downtown and have gotten rich destroying it by tearing down historical old buildings and putting up eyesores. That's a pretty small group and frankly I don't trust any of them. They wrecked downtown and now they are extorting taxpayer money to try to build a bunch of new crap. I think anything and everything these guys do is to benefit them. And if they are backing a candidate it's because she is promising to steer money their way.
Of course these are just my opinions. And honestly I haven't spent a ton of time on this issue. I just spend a lot of time downtown and have been disgusted with all this crap they have done.
They built a bunch of fountains and statues and repaved the sidewalks under the pretense that would bring back the people to downtown. But the people didn't stop going downtown because there weren't enough statues and fountains. They stopped going downtown because there is nothing there. Nothing but panhandlers and crazy people walking around and a guy dancing with a lamp screaming obscenities at passers by. And that ain't drawing crowds.
So I'd be interested in what anybody else thinks. Not big national significance, but I'm still wondering.
So feel free to comment on whatever. This isn't the Urinal, we talk about whatever the hell we want to on this blog so no such thing as "on topic" or "off topic" around here. Just thought I'd bring up something local for a change.
And thanks to Kevin for posting the videos. Take a look at those and then listen to the godless left screeching about the Boy Scouts. Singing praises to the great leader Chairman Mao is what that was. Boy Scouts cheering our President is what Boy Scouts do. Big difference.
