Quote of the Day

"The best way to take control over a people and control them utterly is to take a little of their freedom at a time, to erode rights by a thousand tiny and almost imperceptible reductions. In this way the people will not see those rights and freedoms being removed until past the point at which these changes cannot be reversed."

The End of the Campaign Trail

Shooting the Breeze

BRUCE: welcome to the "Pier of the City" or is that "Heart of the Pier"? my condolences to all the business' that we have supported and enjoyed over the years, as it is obvious there is no place for them in the Council's Grand Plan to turn the pier area into the new DEATH VALLEY......... recall these morons..... uh oh, might be too late to WAKE UP REDONDO..........

COLEMAN: Build it and they will come. Heart of the Pier. Pier of the City. Too big to fail. Welcome to the new future Super Pier that NOBODY wants. It's not a mall it's a lifestyle center. A living machine. Death valley is right. Can't drink the water. Can't swim in the water. Redondo ranks 8th worst in the State for water quality. Dangerous levels of E Coli off Pier. It would have cost 2 million dollars to punch 2 holes in the Pier to oxegenate the harbor. Invisible Tourists will come from around the world to catch a glimpse of a million dead fish. No viable mass transit system to get these Tourists here. Buses still stop running at 8:30. By CenterCal's own estimates there will be 39,000 cars housed in the massive parking structure per weekend. That's 140 miles of car. But I'm sure we'll still win the Mayor's Blue Zone Challenge. Barf. Just barf. Rubber stamping. Developer rimming. Bastards.

BRUCE: i would like to ask the "illuminati" on the council this simple question: "Where is it that you think all these visitors (39,000 cars per weekend) are coming from?" are we bussing them in? well then we don't need the parking structures... Are we flying them in from the 4 corners of the world?....well then we still don't need parking for 39,000..... geeeezzzzzz..... where did you idiots get your information from..... oh, and did you forget that you were elected to represent the residents of redondo? Wake up redondo...... it's not too late to stop the madness..... let's start by removing the crazies from the council and putting them in the asylum.........

  • COLEMAN:  Where are these tourists coming from? I thought people went on vacation to get away from malls?
  • Save Historic Redondo I got it; we'll kidnap the tourists and bus them in!

The New Future Super Pier

It is too a mall; no imagination. The Dog Park, Carousel, Aquarium, Wax Museum, Ferris Wheel all shot down.

The Rise and Fall of Measure B

Well the noise Nazis lost a battle in Tuesday's election; but don't think these hyper sensitive premature babies won't redouble their efforts to turn Hermosa Beach into some kind of perverse summer camp. If Measure B had passed the bars along Pier Avenue would have had to close their doors earlier; setting a new precedent in California. Welcome to the Sunshine State; no talking above a whisper, lights out at 10:30.

Time and time again these Mickey Mouse Club brats amble their way into the South Bay, move next door to an establishment like the Lighthouse (a nightclub that used to be frequented by Jazz greats like Light Dizzy Gillespie), complain about the noise and somehow succeed in reducing a proprietor's hours. How did they not see the Nightclub when they moved in? Either these stunted transplants have been brain baked by the unceasing Southern California sun or they've finally succumbed to the urge and have guzzled ocean water wholesale.

And more to the point doesn't this whole issue come down to their noise versus our noise. Everyone needs noise; we are enveloped by it constantly. There is no escape. These human cuttlefish just want it to be their noise; White noise. 

Perhaps the people who brought you Measure B (are you listening Lissner?) should try moving next door to Guantanamo Bay. Then maybe we'll finally be able to shut that bastard down.
