In today’s FNP, we are treated to a Trout Run/Scientology/Xenu update! Twelve times the judge has granted the Scientologists an extension. TWELVE! How long is this to go on for? Well, their attorney had this to say when asked that very question:
Frederick attorney Bruce Dean, one of the lawyers representing SBPI, declined to comment on why the company has prolonged the filing deadline.
“I can’t divulge our strategy and what’s going on,” Dean said. “There are things going on, but I can’t really talk about it.”
Oh, masters of psychology let’s see if we can guess the reason. Could it be that they are waiting out the election to see if they can get a council that is “friendlier” to their interests? I think we should all be checking the campaign contributions of everyone running for county council and county executive this year. For, if they have accepted money from Social Betterment Properties, we know where their loyalties lie.
Since we used the word ethics in our title, we’re sure you’ve already discerned we are talking about Ole #. Remember last year when he voted against the historical designation of Trout Run, stating if anyone was for it he didn’t hear from them? We were surprised and enchanted that Kirby took his constituents’ opinions into consideration! Someone or something (Xenu?) got to Kirby between then and now because he’s whistling a whole different tune. Not only did he refuse to vote for the council’s answer to the lawsuit, he sent a few emails to the Trout Run’s lawyer. Take a peek:
In what world is it okay for a council member to send emails to the lawyer of an entity that has a pending case before the council?!?! Why the hell does he think it’s all fine and dandy to give Bruce Dean a heads up? And does he not realize that his emails on this very subject are in the public domain? If anything is deserving of an ethics violation, it’s got to be this. Seriously people, is Kirby purposefully trying to destroy the county? Does he love Xenu more than the taxpayers of today?
As reported by the Frederick News Post yesterday, the owner of Trout Run (which is to say by the transitive property of mathematics, where a = owner = b = The Social Betterment Society = c = The Church of Scientology) is asking that a judge reverse the denial of the historic designation that would allow the property to become an abusive drug spa marketed as a treatment center. If that is too confusing, please see some other resources on the matter. We are entirely bored with these mother-shippers. Who would have thought that with e-meters and the reactive mind and Dianetics this schtick could get old?
Some stuff we said to each other yesterday evening during the county sponsored book club meeting and recipe swap.
It was a “true colors reveal” for Tony Chmelik–not that the layers of that onion weren’t already peeling back, but his usual respectful demeanor gave way to patronizing arrogance, and he did not manage to keep his temper from getting the best of him on more than one occasion. A quick glance around the social media tubes indicates a reputation for hypocrisy developing, as his constituents complain that he is not only tardy but unresponsive in communication, and only addresses their concerns when pressed repeatedly and publicly.
Billy creates his own motif by giving the impression that he has scarcely ever read anything. Garfield allusion? They probably didn’t stock Garfield books at the long defunct Borders store on the grand opening day.
Tony knows that shall and may mean different things. Thanks be to Xenu and his disciples at Narconon, through the counsel of Mr. Chomel.
