They Finally Admit It's True...!
I have heard this expression for years...even used it a number of times myself, as I'm sure many of you have!
What expression? The expression "They're just blowing smoke up your butt!" This is usually used now days in referring to the government or to politicians, as they try and convince us that what they are doing is really for our own good or that it actually has some merit!
Well, the City of Houston has not only admited that they are guilty of doing this...but was kind enough to send out a warning to us that they were going to do it again!
Not only do they warn us about the action itself, they even gave us the dates! To verify that they will actually be doing this, they are even furnishing a photographer to take pictures if necessary! And the best thing...they didn't even waste postage sending this notification in the mail, but hand delivered the notice to each and every house in my neighborhood, just so folks would not think we were crazy when telling our friends and neighbors about it!
Now, I've said some pretty harse things about the City of Houston in the past, but I don't really know how to react about this one! I mean, on the one hand it's good that they are letting folks know that they are planning this...but on the other hand, I have to wonder if, given all the technology we have at our disposal in this day and age, if this is really the most advanced process they could come up with!
Friends...I will admit to having a fairly active imagination, but I don't think I could make this stuff up if I tried! Click on the image and read it for yourself...
Now let me clear something up, just in case you might be wondering about it. If you notice, the image is not straight. The edges are lined up properly in my scanner, the paper is the same size at both ends, it's just that the text is not completely straight but is just a little crooked.
Isn't that just like the government (local or otherwise)... their documents, like so many of their actions, are not completely straight but just a little crooked !
Now, my friends, let's get some coffee and sit outside for a bit...while we wait for the smoke to clear!
