Yes, at the urging of craptastic Cherie Kidd, the City Council adopted new "rules of procedure" for themselves that bar Council members from using profanity. Only that sensible son of a bitch Lee Whetham voted against adopting these new hellishly hazy rules. When Whetham asked if the pissy procedural rules actual spell out or define what profanity is, he got cockblocked by both Kidd and asswipe attorney Bill Bloor. In explaining that he didn't know what the damned definition of profanity would be in the new nutsack rules, Bloor helpfully offered that "I'll have to do some checking on that."
That's classic Bill Bloor bullshit: Help create and pass a piss poor proposal that he himself doesn't know what the fuck it means or does. Shame on the six Council members who voted for this. Oh, and by the way, the new rules also ban audience members from having signs, or anyone engaging in "irrelevant or repetitious speech." The sign ban should worry and offend everyone; the ban on "irrelevant or repetitious speech" should eliminate essentially everything that Mayor Downie and Deputy Mayor Kidd might want to say. Is it repetitious to say that they are both notorious, rambling mushmouths? Is it profane to say they both have a terminal case of verbal diarrhea? Is a t-shirt a sign? So many questions!
MEANWHILE...Back in the real world, 40.7% of tobacco retailers in Clallam County sell to minors. That's nearly half. The Washington state average is 17.1%. So once again, Clallam County is more than twice as bad off as average.
Think about that for a minute. Think about what that means, and symbolizes. While Kidd and Co. are navel gazing and worrying about words, the kids in their community are easily able to illegally buy products that will absolutely harm their health. While the City Council is all hot and bothered over fucking language, the kids in Clallam County are out there literally burning up their futures. Those kids are taking their cue from the Council. If they, as supposedly responsible, elected leaders, don't give a shit about the future, why should the kids?
Stuff like this is batshit crazy. The City Council is way beyond clueless, far past checked out. Good for Lee Whetham for sticking to his goddamned guns, and asking sensible questions. As for everyone else, smoke 'em if you got 'em. Because who the fuck cares, right?
This one is for bird brained, brain dead, clueless
and arrogant Cherie Kidd. I'd say she is a total
embarrassment to the human race, only I'm barred
from doing so, since embarrassment contains the
word "ass" in it.
