Order Up!

pigs in a blanket..a quarter pounder with cheese...

My history with the Santa Ynez Valley goes way back..I went up to Ray Kroc's ranch years and years ago..my girlfriend's family was friend's with Ray..I remember his ranch..a huge piece of barren land with a giant McMansion on it..the day was so hot that we spent most of it inside..air conditioned everywhere.. we went from room to room..huge industrial kitchen, a movie theater..the works..it was fun but I couldn't wait to leave..to get back to the coast and the beautiful ocean. There was something about the valley that I didn't like..it was like being on the moon or Lost in Space..you couldn't venture too far from the Mother Ship or you'd die...Fresno does that to me,too. I reached a conclusion: valley life is weird.
Nancy Crawford-Hall, the fat lady who owns the Santa Ynez Valley Journal, has jumped on the anti-union bandwagon and is now Wendy junior. Apparently smarting from the Republicans getting their ass wupped in the elections, Nancy is now upset her boy Steve Pappas didn't win the 3rd dictrict seat against Doreen Farr. Crawford-Hall and Pappas spent 10 grand for a recount, claiming they got "acorned"... more right wing babbling. She goes on to say Doreen Farr won because she was supported by the corrupt local SEIU. First of all, the local SEIU is not corrupt..they are just better at politics than some of these Santa Ynez hillbillies..the LA Chapter has some stains due to a leader getting greedy, but the UNION caught him and he is barred for life..and deserves any criminal investigations coming his way. Now, to suggest because the LA union has a few bad apples that all the chapters are corrupt is more rightwing blather..I mean, talk about a sore loser...Nancy..you lost..you can't put lipstick on a pig (altho I see you tried..pearls even!)
Who the fuck are these people who think because they own some ranch land or community property or a newspaper they also own working class heroes like me..let me splain it to you: as Lesley Gore once sang "you don't own me!!" so shut the fuck up and pay your taxes and let me do my job..I PAY TAXES TOO!! so piss on you and your horse, Nancy...
Of course, Nancy doesn't want to pay taxes for the county/city services like water treatment or cleaning sewer lines, claiming that gov't workers are getting too greedy...hello? The Bush Administration and private industry cronies have put us into this financial mess...money wasted on the Iraq invasion, the rightwing denial of immigration reform, Wall Street bailouts, golden parachutes, Wall Street fraud, mismanagement, lack of regulation..this conservative agenda which rewards incompetence is what Nancy Crawford Hall and the NewsPress supported and never questioned & has put us into a hole..not the union workers..the union workers are also the ones who have to bail out Wall Street!!
Workers Unite!!!
oh yeah...and a side of fries, to go...

Seems like you're always unhappy with someone, Mick.

When are you ever at peace with the world?

You misread me, for I'm the happiest girl, in the whole USA..I simply am a mirror for your unhappiness, your projections..the truth, my unhappy friend, will set you free...

THANK YOU for your article! Nancy Crawford-Hall is the grossest, most ignorant piece of crap in the SYV. She believes that she is supported by the majority of the community, but that is simply not true. At this very moment, I am filling out the survey provided in this week's edition of the Journal...it's not going to be pretty! I encourage EVERYONE who despises NCH and her lousy excuse of a newspaper as much as I do to fill out the survey and send it in!

You're Welcome... altho it's not an article,really more of a rant! Glad to see you trying to keep Nancy honest!

Yeah, I know. I wasn't familiar with your blog until last night - I found it by searching NCH...trying to find a bio to determine whether she is an educated pig or just a big, fat, sloppy pig. Couldn't find anything, so I'll assume the latter. I read every "rant" on your blog last night from Sept to present and, well, I think I love you...but don't tell my boyfriend! haha You now have a permanent spot on my Bookmarks Bar. Keep it up!
