Our town on the brink

Whatever the election results turn out to be for our beloved little town I would like to put out a call for civility for all everyone in the community to embrace.

What an ugly, ugly mess this election run was. I mean, just gross and low class.

The sad thing is that most of the players involved are parents and grandparents. Yet, the behavior was despicable. The lying, the backstabbing, the anonymous comments and impersonations of candidates on the blogs. All very disturbing.

The deceptive mailers, the half truths and flat out lies were evil and immoral (they may have worked too which is truly depressing).

It has to stop. We can't let this be the path of Encinitas politics. We have to be better than this. The seething anger in this country towards anyone who disagrees or is different, it's seeping into our sleepy little beach town and it's going to destroy us.

Everyone take a deep breath, have a nice dinner, enjoy your family, take a hot shower to wash the filth out of your hair and get a good night's sleep. Let's start over in the morning.

We can all be better than this.

  1. JP,
    Thank you for your sage comments. The division in out city reflects our country. The news machines, political gamesmanship and greed has led to a society with no middle ground. Kind loving people from different camps are confident their outlook is correct. The fear I have had is that we will end up with leaders that will further foster this divide.
    We would be well off if we could, in our future, compromise for the benefit of all, more often.
    A wise man once said, "We can be better than this."

  2. Unfortunately your plea will be ignored by those who participated in the smears and lies because those people are win at all costs thinkers. You might as well ask them to give up breathing. The only way to deal with stupidity is to vocalize the truth -- this election saw just that with Kranz and Barth keeping their sanity, dignity and direction, and inspiring many many Encinitans to step up and help to make a difference by spreading the word and showing up at the polls. If they win, so much the better. Thanks Teresa and Tony for your efforts!

    wow. Another brillant comment by an anonymous fool. What are you trying to achieve at 7:39 pm? Influence someone's vote 10 minutes before the polls close? Make a point? On this blog post of all things? Have a nice life you sad pathetic man. Nobody loves you.

  7. I share your sentiments, however, let's be honest. Most - not all, but most of the vulgarity on this blog has come from supporters of Dalager and Gaspar. And all, not some, but all of the deceptive slate mailers came from Dalager and Gaspar. What's different about this election is that for once, primarily due to Dalager's legal problems, there is a real chance of reversing the 3-2 majority held for the last decade by developers and big money. That's why it got so dirty. Because, they can't stand the idea of losing power, and any means is justified to retain it. We may lose. If you consider the money spent by Dalager and Gaspar and their supporters, the odds certainly favor them. If that happens, we will sulk for awhile, lick our wounds and move on. My worry is if we win, the other side will not accept it. They will go into slash and burn mode, and the climate will remain ugly even after the election. How do you have a sit down with people who want to wipe you off the face of the earth?

  8. Let's not be naive - we aren't going to all lock arms together tomorrow and sing camp songs. The special interest powers that have this town in their grip won't be any different; they still have an agenda to pursue at the expense of the greater community. Dalager should lose, but Gaspar will likely win - she will be the new Dalager, voting in lock step with $tock$ and Bond. On November 10, they will vote to rezone the Pacific View School site to residential zoning, forever losing one of the most unique potential public use properties immediately adjacant to the coast. This is the legacy of $tock$, Bond and Dalager - the damage they've wrought will outlive all of them.

  9. Team Gaspar pulled a lot of dirty tricks to win. I wonder what she will be like as a council member weeks and months from now. I bet she is more independent than the good old boys think she is. We won't forget what you did last summer Gaspar.

  10. J.P. is a nice family man with beautiful wife and kids. He often wishes people would take the high road. This is not the first time he has written a post like this.

  11. No Need to get along with Criminals and Scum. I give no respect to Dalager and Gaspar.

    Their integrity and campaigns are as low as they get.

    I think the problem is people don't talk about it enough.

    You hear all the time.... awe, I just don't like getting involved in our City's politics. I think that is sooooo fricken weak!

    What you should be saying is... I really don't care about Encinitas..... I will let the special interested destroy this town so it turns out like Pacific Beach.

    Gaspar bought this election with outside money and she has no idea about any issues in Encinitas. She will be fun to tear apart for the next 4 years.

    First off- What stupid bitch, sacrifices her 3 young babies' youth for her own ego to serve as a council women? Gaspar the puppet's nose has already grown 2 inches since the beginning of her campaign. I can't wait to see what she looks like in 4 years. She'll be giving plenty of wood to Stocks I bet. Right Pinocchio?

    This will be fun!

  12. 15% and it looks bleakNovember 02, 2010 10:12 PM

    who can sleep when the rats are infiltrating the ship, they will eat the provisions, then the passengers, then the infrastructure, no help can save the ship, the "informed" majority think that Kristin's teeth are the whitest and therefore she wins!!!! ....we all sink in a yellow bellied rat....yellow bellied rat....yellow bellied rat...da da da....

  13. You get mad that Teresa got called a whore then call Kristin a bitch? Comon' we have to stop this.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Her Teeth are the whitest. And her plastic Boobs are the plasticiest!....

    And her Pinocchio nose can't stop growing..... I bet you 10 to 1 odds, she gets several nose jobs before the next election. Lets do a photo shoot of that bitch. Guaranteed- She'll be changing through the years more then Michael Jackson.

    My guess is she's going for a Paris Hilton look with big old dolly parton style plastic boobs.

    Game on... lets she that bitch in 4 years.

    Bye Bye Encinitas.... or maybe I should say Buy Buy Encinitas. Our town is changing and not for the better. But Hell, this bitch will be more fun than gomer pyle.

    Lets sell out the rest of Encinitas while we can and let the fun begin!

  15. JP,

    don't you know. Bitch is a compliment now a days. Just like Phat, Dope, and Bad.

    Man your getting old.

  16. Gaspar wins - what is wrong with this community????

    ReplyDelete
  17. Over? Did you say "over"? Nothing is over until we decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Hell no!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Kristin was called a "stupid bitch" which is not defamation, it is hyberpole...which means if the alleged stupid bitch cannot prove she is not a stupid bitch then it is not defamation...unlike "whore" which has only one meaning when directed at a female...obviously Teresa can prove she does not give sex for money, thus to call her a whore is defamation. And, by the way, Kristin is a Beatch....always smiling behind your back.

  19. Did you actually delete my comment?
    I'm sorry, did you find it a little too real?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Sorry for the double post of the last Comment, it was an accident.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Your right, Teresa doesn't have to sell sex for money. She has the city's credit card.

    ReplyDelete
  22. @Anon 2:07 am - Barth has the City's credit card.

    Really? What has Barth done illegally or unethically with the City "credit card?" Instead of some glib little jab, come out of the shadow and discuss the issue. I and others will come out to reply with the facts if you are ever ready. Lame.

    I don't even know why you would make that comment. To promote the further superficialitization of American politics? Sad

  23. Lets see who's in charge.
    obama
    Reed
    Moonbeam
    Newsom
    Boxer
    Feinstein
    The list goes on.
    Voting Democratic is unpatriotic, it is the demise of the USA.

    ReplyDelete
  24. I hope Gaspar gets selected by the council to represent Encinitas at conferences this time around because I seriously doubt Barth will accept the duty again.

    The good old boys tried to make it sound like Barth went to Bed Bath and Beyond on the city credit card but it didn't work you lying scumbags.

    I'm sure you will call out Stocks for his travel cost for SANDAG when his election comes around, right?

    ReplyDelete
  25. Stocks the RINO has problems with Being in bed with the Union. Stocks was primarily responsible for the 2005 40% pension increase and 14% raises for all of staff and themselves.

    As this time, the economy will be in worse shape with lower jobs and pissed off public. Stocks the RINO boy will be gone.

  28. I know the truth hurts TONY but you have been a very bad person and lost just as badly. You had no business running for council and I find it hilarious that you thought otherwise. As they said above, Game Over!

  30. Interesting how the Leucadian blog completely SHUT DOWN and CENSORED all commentary on the blog leading up to the election in a move to reduce the number of people seeing what a kook Kranz really is. Not only was the ability to post comments suspended but even the ability to become a member and log-on was unavailable. Shame on the Leucadian for taking away the communities ability to communicate freely. Take a screen shot of this comment because when the editor sees it, it too will disappear along with all of the other constructive criticism written herein. The editor is an obvious fan of Saul Alinsky's book Rule-for-Radical...rule #27 silence your critics!

  32. J.P. are you really that afraid of the truth that you have to delete my comment on this post not once, but twice. That's pretty mature.....concealing opinions. It sounds like something you'd accuse Dan of doing.

    I am going to post this one more time (it has been deleted twice already, read it fast before it gets deleted a third time).

  35. That's a record, J.P. Deleted my post in less than 2 minutes. Just to be heard, I'll post it a few more times.

    Can you at least tell us why you are so afraid of our statements?

    ReplyDelete
  36. Again, it's been deleted a 4th time! I didn't time it this time to get an exact time, but it's under 4 minutes.

    What am I saying that is so scary you have to hide it?

  45. Later dude. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out. There are many on this blog that are so disappointed and let down by him on this blog because we know and like him. The bro deal was stupid to me. The loan was a non starter. When many can not get aloan, he was able to get one that none of us could and then voted in favor of that person. This is a violation of public trust. No way around it. He has no one to blame but himself. LL

  48. Derrik, I have it set up so that all comments posted are emailed to a special gmail account I set up for this blog. I searched it for your missing post. They were not there assuming you posted them under Derrik Marrow. I don't know what to tell you man.

  49. I am new to this blog and am totally disgusted at the lack of common decentcy and the abundance of disparaging comments towards Kristin Gaspar. Talk about dirty politics! The filth and lies that you spew, are worse than any slate I saw, and impact voters as well.
    If you don't agree with her political views then act like a mature, responsibLe American citizen and pose an argument.
    I would surmise that you treat all female politicians the same way making derogitory comments about their physical characteristics, their mothering skills and their lack of qualifications simply because they're female.
    I'd also bet Kristin's IQ is a lot higher than yours. Instead of barking juvenile abusive slurs, why don't you considder doing something positive - like reading something other than porn.

  50. So you think that the German's bombed Pearl Harbor? I guess you voted yes on 19. You may also want to think about furthuring your education.

    It freaks me out that uneducated people like you vote.
    You may enjoy reading Glen Beck's books.
