Who is working for whom?

Mr. Borough Mayor, thanks for your warning to watch you guys. At the KPB Assembly meeting, you warned us citizens to “Pay attention” to what you and the Borough officials are doing. You’re absolutely right. We citizens sure can’t afford to sit back and let you guys do anything, without us looking over your shoulders. You public servants might pass an ordinance like 2011-12, that steals our property rights … or start a Task Force that is stacked with people who favor your point of view … or something else equally off-of-the-wall. Who knows what you will do next?

I’m so sorry I dropped the ball on monitoring your activities. I guess I maybe was out working as a productive, taxpaying citizen … or sleeping in my little bed so I can do it all the next day … or cooking dinner for my family and washing those piles of dirty dishes … or perhaps I was helping to get our winter wood into our woodshed to keep us warm … or, surely I was doing something less vital than checking up on you and those other public servants! I guess I made the mistake of thinking that you guys are working for us citizens. I kind of assumed that you would listen to us and find out what we really want. So sorry that I utterly misunderstood!

I promised i would not say i told you so folks about Mikey and his intentions, so i won't.
I will not say the same about our President Obama either and just allow time to reveal all things and intentions for his desired self advancements to restrict or steal our rights as Free Americans with absolute total control task forces and schemes pointing to his end game.
Watch, look, listen and wait, they, power hungry leaders will all reveal their true intentions in due time.

wendy what is it you really want? You didnt mention it in your letter. What I do know for anyone with waterfront property, many of them do not take responsibility to protect the rivers and lakes. Waterfront owners are responsible for that. It is sewage run-off, fertilizers and so on that destroy, yet many owners magnify having a green lawn over healthy water for fish. Many owners allow people to fish right off the banks and destroy the overhang. Fry has to have over-hang to survive, they must! the dirt that falls off from it literaly suffocates fish eggs and kills them. No one is taking your property for thier personal use, it isnt public right a way. Once again, what is it you really want and can't have, I am curious.
