I have quite simply had enough. Stephanie Robins hit it spot on in her letter last week. I refuse to live in a country that glorifies and adulates the empty head. Ban smoking in public places? Wow. Those on the Manhattan Beach City Council are doing God’s work. Meanwhile, we are heading toward a total surveillance state, akin to what George Orwell warned us about in 1948. Hermosa Beach is all in on the idea. And all these fools, these supposed betters, can summon the courage to do is ban smoking? Also, they are including e-cigarettes in the bill, which means they are not really against second-hand smoke, but rather restricting our freedoms. Empty heads. Just empty heads, masquerading as real human beings with actual thoughts.
It is for this reason, and others, that I am officially declaring my candidacy for Redondo Beach City Council District 3, as of this moment. I encourage Stephanie to run as well. It’s time to knock these criminals out of office. Don’t hate the media, be the media.
