With Liberty and Justice for Some
The other day, I saw the poctures of the ribbon cutting ceremonies. I noticed Stanley Rayborn has stepped up as 4he president of Ben Winston's LEDC (Lumberton Economic Development Council). Just a couple of months ago, Rayborn resigned from the planning and zoning committee because he felt they were not actively bringing industry to the city. One would think that a person that served as alderman would know that's not the scope of responsibility for a planning and zoning committe. Now that he's presiding over the economic development council, he can bring industry to this city. After all, that's what one would expect of an economic development council. I've also noticed that Alderman Tommy Dukes, Jr. was elected to serve as Vice President. I'm not certain if there's a conflict in holding both posts but with this mayor and board, it really doesn't matter.
I don't know who's coming to make a proposal to save the city but whoever it may be, they will be Googled. Someone said the other day that I'm too harsh and that very well could be true but there's a politically correct version of events printed evey week in the Hattiesburg American. If you don't know by now, I don't sugar coat my views. I know that in order for me to have honey with my nightly cup of camomile tea, someone had to wrestle with some bees. I'm far from obtuse, but I can't imagine why people get upset because I blog about what they say on camera. Now that's obtuse. If they spent half the time they spend worrying/discussing me and this blog and use that time to search for viable solutions for this city, they may actually make some progress. Some ask if I'm afraid they're going to try and file some trumped up charges against me. No. I already know they're working to bring in an unjust judge; someone they can control. I don't doubt that tney have a clerk that's willing to lie, under oath, to try and have me banned because she's allegedly frightened of this overweight brute with a tricky knee and sleep apnea. But I know, the only thing that's frightening is my willingness to tell the truth. I once haf a fear of going to jail but the last board cured that fear when they sent their minions after me. They tried everything to dhut down this blog and all they could do was wait until city hall closed, so I couldn't pay the ticket, and have me arrested for a delinquent parking ticket. The night I was taken to jail, I was in the processing area most of the time, retelling what happened and why I was there. The Lamar County Sheriff's officers were laughing the whole time, saying how stupid Lumberton Police Department was becoming. So, no, I'm no longer fearful of being locked up because of a white lie (pun intended) because if they come for me, they're taking me to the doctor, on their dime. I seriously doubt that I'm going to ask if they can swing by the house and get my CPAP machine before going to Purvis. I know it's cold and despite my aching joints, I will attend tonight's meeting. I don't know what's on tne agenda but once I find out, I will let you know. Hopefully, the cold will help cutrail some of tne monthly shenanigans.
