Close their tax loopholes
Is this just theory?
Prove it, then
Roughing up a Straw Man is easy
Keep repeating it , even if it's a lie

There’s so much Charter debate – and misinformation – spewing into Costa Mesa’s news and views now. Good? Bad? Both? Let’s take a look at the Charter, in a blog or three. Just what does it actually say?
What's it all about?
Independent, but not always
Not much really changes
But some list everything in their charter
Much ado about very little
Or a lot
How you make one
Can do it our way -- like most other cities

Cancelled out of debate
I wanted to fight, really
The nefarious motivations surface
How it played outHowever, according to the Daily Pilot, Stephens showed up with a baseball glove and hat, and Sandy wore a High School Sports shirt. Also according to the Pilot, about five non-CM4RG folks showed up, so I guess there weren't a lot of people there to ooh and ah about two candidates' costumes and pretended "sports-mindedness."
Walking the walk, not talking the talk
Easier to swish the airI wish that the candidates who aren’t particularly involved in CM sports had identified specific Youth Sports problems or the solutions that they’d favor as Council members. There’s certainly plenty of information available if anyone were interested. It’s easier to throw punches at the air, though
If there are others present
..The other flags may be smaller but none may be larger.
..No other flag ever should be placed above it.
On the dais
If you leave it out all night
I wonder why
I wonder why some, or at least one, of the candidates won't understand how to fly a flag. For some of us, the flag is a symbol of great importance and allegiance. Perhaps some candidates don't share our devotion, but common sense would suggest that they not show disrespect to a flag if they choose to use it in their campaign. Those of us who care take note, and hear an implied message, whether it's intended or not.
I wonder why they do that.

Fear and loathing in the cauldron
Slanted for sure, but refreshing
Newspaper endorsed 3Ms
Missed a chance for answers
According to the Daily Pilot newspaper on 21 Sep, Genis, Stephens, and Weitzberg all agreed that, if they had the power (such as being elected to the CM City Council) they'd eliminate the job of Communications Director. Genis suggested replacing the position with a grant writer to bring more money into Costa Mesa.
