Orrbors, and all the useless and pointless information

For those of you who have passed the rigorous application to be on the
discriminatory pillow talk Frambors.. or as some call it... Dembors...lately you have seen the pointless debate over recycle bins, weight loss club and an admission from it's ruler.. that HE is to blame for the lack of participation at Town Meeting... and I couldn't agree more. The cowboy hat wearing, follicley challenged, lap top playing goof ball, who has costs this Town millions in legal fees and reputation, now has been asking his following to apply for a coveted TM seat for the ultra elite Precinct 1. I'm reminded of a Bob Dylan song, "Idiot Wind" where Bob writes, "blowing even time you move your mouth, blowing down the back roads head'en south, Idiot Wind, it's a wonder you can even feed your self".

Tonight, we hear about the rules governing posts about candidates for the upcoming Town elections. I won't bore you with the multi paragraph rules and regulations but will ask ... is it any wonder we have such a dysfunctional TM, where 90% of the members are there for life, 20% leave at 9PM, 30% don't show up at all, 25% are employed by the Town, many have ADD and 80& are party loyalists... going along to get along.

If anyone with an independent brain from Pr 6 who wants to be a TMM.... and not bother with getting signatures and being on the ballot this spring, just shoot me an e mail before TM in April, and we (as precinct members) will vote for the best candidate that shows any real interest and knowledge of this Towns issues.

Good for you Jim, saying what so many of us know to be true but don't have the guts to say. The reason Framingham is messed up is because of the people we have at Town Meeting more than anything else. We back and support a TM member who has been disciplined by a Federal Judge, and ordered to go to classes to learn to be civil and not a bigot. A selectwoman who used the fact she was named in the lawsuit as something to brag about, and some nutcase TM member who spews about Sir Francis Drake. What the hell are the people in this town doing when they vote these people in over and over and over again.

We need a smaller form of town government, and a minimum requirement for attendance, and rules that mean people who are there are paying attention to what is being discussed on the floor. If we can get that type of rules in place then we will have a better and more effective voice of town government. Getting more people is not going to fix anything. Getting the people who are already there engaged and involved is what we should be working on first.

Frambors does serve some service, although not without bias. At least it is a way to get information out there to interested residents. I think the problem is it should not be managed by a biased, bigoted, TM member. Don't you agree?

frambors is such a waste of a resource.

My last three posts have been nixed based on wording or civility or Linda Dunbrack just doesn't like what I say.
