It makes MY voting a waste of MY time, for no matter whom I choose to vote for, THEY get MOLLED by the corrupt business[es] that are here in OC! Why fucking bother to vent at all? It's a major fucking joke to all of them, the DA's office, the groups that are to police the supervisors. And SYEINER [sic] is getting away with the shit, and WHOM else as well???????Zerox-69 April 28
Being an avid, anti-uptight ultraconservative Republican person and growing up in Orange County has really been the angry young man's perfect place to stay angry. I wonder what the hell I'm still doing here sometimes. This fake-titted gold digger meets cheesy-can't-take-his-eyes-off-himself salesman town certainly is the epitome of shallow, greedy, overly ambitious American Dream-gone-idiot town. Yes, I am intolerant of intolerant people, too, so I'm usually pissed-off about the people in this town. I used to think, "hey, these fuckers will die off, and their kids will surely be cool after seeing how their parents were so twisted." But most of the cool kids either moved away or got uncool.
I must confess that I've had to go underground. I got butt fucked so many times by trying to speak my piece that I gotta go semi-anonymous. Many people that run this town don't want to hear what I have to say and like the old name "behind the Orange Curtain" because it suggests they fuck you for speaking your mind.Paradoxy Newport Beach Oct. 2
I wonder why the food/grocery stores do not sell cornmeal, grits and boiled peanuts in California. We have some relatives out there, and they do wish for this. We send it to them, but it would be very, very nice/good to buy it there cheaper. We visited our families in Santa Ana, Lake Forest and Lompoc in September. When we got home, the first thing I baked was some GOOD OL' CORN BREAD. Also had some grits (breakfast). Nothing like GOOD HOME COOKING from THE SOUTH.
I am the DESIGNER OF THE FAMOUS "DROPSEAT JUMPSUITS." No undressing in restroom. Looks like regular jumpsuit with belt. Once you wear them, you will wear them seven days a week. We love to dress alike and go out dancing.Kathleen Fuqua Williams Columbus, Georgia Oct. 3
KANING OUR CRITIC
Yeah, Rich Kane. I say kill the writers. Mow 'em down and pave 'em over. That's what I say. Don't be surprised when a lead pipe smashes the back of your skull, bud. You're a dead piece of hippie crap. The Earth'll be better without you, seŮor.FC April 26
WACKED LETTERS HALL OF FAMEEditor's note: Three letter writers, who sent a combined 19 submissions to the Weekly in 1999, are worthy of special recognition:
You may not remember, but Michael Stipe once "seemed to be" lying, walking in front of the video camera, his sleeves rolled up, wearing a (fucking kinda) hat. He "seemed to be" lying because he's white, he's an overt homosexual, he's from a privileged socioeconomic background, he's focused, partially, on commercial recorded-music sale, and, therefore, he works for big recorded-music businesses, and he's implying, at least, that nobody gets hurt calling "pop music" music.
But, nowadays, such concerns are irrelevancy, as people must concern themselves, as individuals, with far more important matters. So how that fucker is lying about much "anymore" is beyond myself.
I suppose I should get used to people "being bad." They're never going to give me pause, eh? Since feeling a desire for a return to monarchism will not be sufficient—the structural-system design, which is actually not the government itself, is not, on the other hand, actually the "dead from suicide (willingness)" pseudo-government. That is.
The government of the planet are the entirety of the Earth's sane adult population at any particular moment. The structural system was designed as a reflection of that population. It's not designed to allow any existing or newly perpetrated subversion. It's designed to be picked up, used and put down again without (added) confusion, by any sane person or circumstantially controllable psychotic. That is.
Therefore, it is actually indestructible reflection of the indestructibility of the society it assists. That society is the government, the entirety of the sane adult population of the planet at any particular moment. The structure allows only clear-headed, sane-adult problem solving. The sane are disgusted when referring to the structure by nothing more than the cartoon representations of political celebrities.
I do this under stress.Robert Biggs San Diego March 17
I voted for Slick Willie in the past two elections, the best of two evils: Goofy or Donald Duck. Unless Jesse "The Mind" Ventura runs again, I feel lost like a pickle in a blizzard. Besides big-buck zillionaire Steve Forbes, all others have a slight taste of aristocracy, shun dedication and hard work, abhor the middle class.
So, all that is left is the big enchilada, Air Force One, Katzenberg's ski chalet in Aspen, pizza service for Hollywood interns, finger on the red-hot button, harvest ball dance in the Rose Garden with Linda Ronstadt, 15 trips a year to be entertained by the Hollywood hymies and regular pickup of campaign contributions for taxpayer-subsidized programs like 401(k)s, REITs, IRAs, tax deductions for mergers, tax deductions for downsizing (employee layoffs), IPOs for insiders/ cronies/politicians, easy access to shell corporations, a full-blown unregulated NASDAQ, short selling and possible privatization of Social Security.
