    The major lead-by-example here is campaign contributions to CC members. The more you give, the more you get. Just ask Paul and Woody how well it works.

    Why shouldn’t he park there ? Council members would. If challenged, “do you know who I am” ? Officer, don’t you know the law only applies to the lil people ?

    Free and reserved parked at the airport while on personal trips, free expensive box seats at the stadium we paid to build, choice and free seats at entertainment events, freedom from a traffic citations, arrest or prosecution. Freedom to buy toys with tax dollars, freedom to repeatedly waste money on guaranteed to fail projects. Freedom to smack down any opponents or those that beat them at their game.

    Who said Freedom wasnt Free ?

    There’s way too many examples of what that picture shows. How about the abuse of the parking meters downtown, especially by City council offices? Actually all over downtown. Fire Department, and other city departments….Or how about the ability to give citations on private property? Private parking lots? Or maybe the abuse of taxing a fee…don’t believe me, look at your water bill. I always thought to tax on something you had to receive a service or product, but the city PSB taxes your fees. I imagine that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Mayor gave “State of the City” yesterday…hell we all know the state of the city. Miserable and growing.

    On one hand you complain about paternalism, but on the other hand, you do not want people using Uber.

    Which is it?
