There are two things to discuss today; (1) The possible destruction of eleven families to appease Mr. Budweiser and his baby sitter Brent. (2) We can all take a large collective sigh knowing the Globe Gazette approves the decision to “hold back” on the possibility of the giant sand castle in the sky which was to mark the unfortunate term of Eric.
The article in today’s Globe talks about competive bidding; we now want the city to bid against itself on the issue of garbage collecting. Lets pretend for only purposes of illustration that I am Holt Services, and lets pretend further that I can’t pay my dumping fees at the North Iowa Land Fill and in general I am on my ass financially; perhaps I have spent my money of too many funny commercials…whatever. This is all for purposes of illustration, none of it is real.
To continue; would it not be in my best interest to summit a bid on the possibility of hauling garbage for the City of Mason City? Furthermore wouldn’t it be smart on my part to make that bid unbelievably low in order to win the contract…knowing later in the near future I could jack it up with little trouble.
If bids are taken, who’s running this freak show? Are the bids secret? Let me tell you; there are no secrets at Five East. Like the committee to build the Sand Castle, this is a stacked deck. Some examples of other cities experiences were quoted in today article by Five East’s main propagandist John Skipper; of course they were all on the positive side of the Jolly Green Bean Stalk, there was no down side presented, nor will there be.
We have a system in our Sanitation Department that is not broken, it does not require fixing; leave it alone. What really needs fixing is Eric. I am of the opinion we can’t afford to wait until this inmate’s term runs out, he needs to be contained somehow. It is painfully aware by now that this lockstep council has got the balls of a eunuch, each and every one of them. The Chamber has all got red scarfs, I think the council should be issued pink scarfs because they’re all pussies. To those of you out there who are so fast with your mouths on so many issues; lets hear you speak up now on the garbage issue; use you vote to send a message as to what you will do come the next election…but do not remain silent, not now….
