Someone’s got it in for me, they’re planting stories in the press
Whoever it is I wish they’d cut it out but when they will I can only guess….
People see me all the time and they just can’t remember how to act
Their minds are filled with big ideas, images and distorted facts
Even you, yesterday you had to ask me where it was at
I couldn’t believe after all these years, you didn’t know me better than that…..
Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your mouth
Blowing down the backroads headin’ south
Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth
You’re an idiot, babe
It’s a wonder that you still know how to breathe…
I ran into the fortune-teller, who said beware of lightning that might strike
I haven’t known peace and quiet for so long I can’t remember what it’s like
There’s a lone soldier on the cross, smoke pourin’ out of a boxcar door
You didn’t know it, you didn’t think it could be done, in the final end he won the wars
After losin’ every battle……..
You hurt the ones that I love best and cover up the truth with lies
One day you’ll be in the ditch, flies buzzin’ around your eyes…….
Idiot wind, blowing through the flowers on your tomb
Blowing through the curtains in your room
Idiot wind, blowing every time you move your teeth
You’re an idiot, babe
It’s a wonder that you still know how to breathe….. (Bob Dylan)
Let’s take a quick inventory of the status of the “Idiot Wind” actions going on in Molalla these days in the order of their coming reckoning: the Timber Ridge Motocross “park” (don’t you love how “park”is used to name a huge bare scorched earth erosion project, that is hot!), the 34 million dollar school bond (a rush to the ballot to build “something” that will end up half empty), and the version infinity Ground Hog Day comp plan baloney that keeps Potter rollin’ in the bucks with his undeserved huge paychecks.
1. LOCAL LAND DESTRUCTION PROJECT, TIMBER RIDGE:
Timber Ridge Motocross “park” (choke again, don’t you love the juxtaposition of “park”with an INTENSIVELY trashed plot of high value farmland? Pay attention motocross dudes, there are some clues to your coming failure posted here!) is due for a hearin’ at Clackamas County on Oct. 21.
Local concerned citizens, characterized as “THEM LIFELESS NEIBOHRS (sic) WHO HAVE NO BETTER THING TO DO THEN TO MAKE OTHERS AS MISERABLE AS THEM” will meet swell cave man idiots (like the “author” of that “neibohrs”(sic) quote) to “discuss”the non-merits of the “park” in a civilized setting at County. The NO WAY list is miles long – that gang of idiot wind motocross Forrest Gumps don’t have a leg to stand on.
The most hilarious part about Team Forrest Gump – owner Mike Thomas, land destruction expert Steve Corrie, and “buy a dirt bike and ruin your kid’s hearing” motocross promoter Elaine Derrick – is that they are apparently crazy enough to believe that “noise” is their only problem!
Boy, all that jarrin’ racin’ and noise and motorcycle fume breathin’ must have fried some brain cells if idiot wind Team Forrest Gump really believes “noise” is the only state-wide objection to motocross/”private” parks. I won’t bother to lay the land use goals out for those idiots”, because it will be a lot more fun to see the light bulb go on in land use “court” when they see what they are really up against.
Hey, Team Forrest Gump, don’t say we all didn’t try to warn you. It is “buyer beware” in Oregon’s use goal jungle and ONLY plans which perfectly conform to ALL THE RULES survive.
Crazy dump truck loads of worthless “plans” get you nothing but a huge bonfire of failure. But don’t believe me – just remember that NOTHING like Timber Ridge has been sited since the land use goals went into effect in the late 70’s.
That’s a great big ZERO! So blow strong, Timber Idiot Ridge team and be sure to bring those inarticulate, threatening, “we live somewhere else but want to destroy your quality of life” hordes of Forest Gumps to “court”. “THEM LIFELESS NEIBOHRS” (also portrayed by the same motocross idiot as the “beat and truly jelious (sic)… hillbillys”) deserve some public comic relief.
See ya in “court” and be sure to step them brain-dead “we want to ride” fans up to the microphone – that is, if they can manage to produce 3 minutes of coherent content in public for the record!
And just wait to see the piles of “it isn’t just about the noise” land use laws that apply to STOP Timber Idiot Ridge (and the state-wide land use experts who are actively pointing those laws out to the County). Talk about the “Idiot Wind” team’s inability to research!
I always wanted participate in a LUBA case, so maybe when Timber Idiot Ridge gets the ax at County Mr. Deep Pockets Blow Hard can take his “we want to ride” road show with its dump truck of “paper” to State land use court? I’m keeping my fingers crossed on that one, but I guess it depends on how deep those Team Forest Gump pockets really are, since it is likely to get really really expensive to continue to fight when the “neibohrs” (sic) get represented for free by top land use talent. That’s a tough mountain to climb.
Thanks 1000 Friends – you are my champions!
And simplistic TEAM FOREST GUMP: Shall I get you a list of the FORMIDABLE EXPERTS LINING UP AGAINST YOU? You will likely have a lot of “car burning” threats to make before this is over!
2. THE SCHOOL BOND, “you must be kidding” 34 million dollar campaign:
I got another laugh when I heard the fire marshal flap was caused by the District’s failure YET AGAIN to contract code worthy repairs. The not to code sheet rock which now will cost DISTRICT TAXPAYERS TO FIX is another nail in the coffin of anyone being able to trust a thing that comes out of the District. If the fools who run “our” schools can’t even contract for decent roofs or install correct sheet rock, what voter on earth would say “yes” to giving the “idiot wind” team of Kostur and Molalla Planning building bond money to “play” with?
Are the pro-bond parents KIDDING? Thank god this “idiot wind” censorship election will be over soon. The flood of negative feedback I hear around town about the District almost shocks me – especially when traditionally bleeding heart liberals spit venom about the schools and the District’s ability to teach and to keep our infrastructure in proper repair. NO ON THE BOND!
GROUND HOG DAY REDUX AND REDUX AND REDUX AND REDUX AND………………………….:
Just a quick note on the “comp plan/urban reserves” fiasco. I heard from the citizen grapevine that when someone called to ask John “I don’t give a crap about Molalla’s future because I don’t live here” Atkins about the status of the comp plan, he babbled something about the County “waiting” till after the election to “hear” it.
Hey Atkins, shouldn’t you try to be a tad more candid about Potter’s idiot wind pile of worthless paper – and at least admit that Ground Hog Day is sitting back in Potter’s lap with gigantic flaws and missing reports, per the County? That’s not exactly the truth to say it’s “on hold” till after the election when it is REALLY ON HOLD till there is COMPLETE LEGALLY DEFENSIBLE CONTENT. MOLALLA IS LIGHT YEARS AND TONS OF MONEY AWAY FROM PRODUCING ANYTHING LEGALLY DEFENSIBLE.
So stop with the “idiot wind” evasive statements and tell the truth for a change about Ground Hog Day, Atkins.
Maybe Molalla thinks it can try to thwart public information but when that “public” info gets out of the city thankfully other agencies know what it means to honor public information requests. We’ve seen the feedback letter and it will take a lot more talent than clueless Potter to “fix” the comp plan.
The funny part is, if it gets “fixed”, that “fix” will have to kick the shit out of the giant ridiculous “land needs” and the whole effort becomes worthless in terms of growing the borders. That means it is “rock and hard place” ahoy for the IDIOT LAND SPECULATORS!
IDIOT WINDS have been blowing hard around these hills and dales – but thankfully the HURRICANE OF REALITY will soon clear the air.
See ya at the hearins’ and at the polls! Let’s blow all the Forrest Gumps out-of-town!
