AVRCD Shenanigans, Government Abuse and Other Thoughts
Just some thoughts.
Reading the blogs, posts, forums, topix and myriad other sources of local news and stories regarding this Valley, one thing becomes immediately clear: Between the Shenanigans of the AVRCD, the Abuses of L.A. County Regional Planning/NAT Team harassment, the Political Proselytizing and Unconstitutional Draconian Proclamations and Actions by Mayor R. Rex Parris and the Criminal Harassment and Cover-up by Government Officials against citizens in the Antelope Valley, it would appear that any semblance of law, order, ethics, morality and personal responsibility by officials, law enforcement officers and so-called leaders within this Valley have taken a back seat to sleazy, blatant power grabs, dubious land use doctrines, onerous back room deals, obnoxiously excessive egos and last but not least, extreme pettiness.
Of course there is a slew of other misguided affronts facing the residents of the Antelope Valley and pages could be written on those subjects alone.
Unless residents of this valley open their eyes and ears to the issues at hand and openly question the activities, motives and real life consequences of those in power, the long-lasting effects of the actions orchestrated by these officials will be felt by all of us for years to come, and with very little recourse for reversal.
Silence and Fear is the enemy of all free people.
Unfortunately, if history is any indication, and with public apathy being what it is, those perpetrating all of the above seem to have clear sailing and fair winds ahead.
Hopefully the tide will change... There are people out there fighting for what is right on all these different issues. More people will have to be willing to act on their convictions, speak up against injustices and attacks on the Constitution and in so doing, must be willing to risk their 'perceived' comforts in life.
That is yet to be seen and a tall order to fill in these uncertain times.
