Southbridge Town Council Meeting - August 24, 2015

27 comments:

  1. I’ve seen a number of her supporters on this site repeating the councilor’s phrase about this being satire. But where is the councilor herself?

    The videos on youtube are only the tip of the iceberg. If people want to know what this group is all about you should go to their facebook page at :
    https://www.facebook.com/pages/Christians-against-dinosaurs/869056093104638

    The posts there make it clear that this is nothing more than a hate group ridiculing not just Christians but all religions. I know that if I had been aware of this before the election I certainly would not have voted for her.

    It is time for the councilor to speak out publicly about her participation in a group that promotes this kind of garbage.

  2. I think the time has come for Councilor Auclair to face this issue. It is unfortunate that no one raised this issue during the campaign. It has become increasingly clear that she has backed an anti-religion, pro-atheist group. That shouldn’t prohibit somebody from public office, but it shouldn’t be hidden from the public either. One’s beliefs and convictions do have a bearing on issues of public policy. If she is going to dodge this issue with deflection and deceit what other issues will that tactic apply to?

  3. Where's Auclair and James B - Exactly!!!! - Thank you for taking the time to look into this issue for yourselves.

    In regards to the question: If she is going to dodge this issue with deflection and deceit what other issues will that tactic apply to?

    Oh, I don't know but every meeting starts with the Pledge of a Allegiance - I Pledge Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

    Does she say it ?
    Does she mean it or, is she playing a deceitful hoax on us there too?

    Councilor Auclair, you have some explaining to do!

  4. It has been a few years since we have recruited in Honest Town, but you guys are spot on- We need to reestablish a solid Christian Nation, and the last thing we need are leaders that poke fun at those that know the Holy Bible should be taken literally in plain English just like Jesus said it originally.

    Keep up the good fight Gentlemen. Maybe arrangements can be made to permit us to proudly burn our tall cross of Christian illumination at the big football rally in November and you fellows can speak out against this reprobate!

  5. still this reprobate has defenders - go to that face book page and see the religious hate like this.

      Mike, to read your posts, KA has opened a death camp on the outskirts of town to house Evangelists.

      She has friends on the internet that are snarky atheists. So what? Our Council has two Ministers and st least three Atheists. Do you want to replace the Atheists with Priests and Ministers?

      Remember the Pentagon's $800 toilet seats? The Council recently broke the Open Meeting Law to put in a sewer line that will provide a dishwasher and toilets st about $150,000.00 each, and you are crying about Kristen having atheist friends?

      Get a grip man, because this issue is like tissue, falling apart through hour tears. You got beat by some good Candidates, unlike the shame before when you got beat by Duh-rant. Let it go!

  6. Probably because she was running against an even bigger hater that came in 4th place that lost bc he was shinning about her more than he admits.

    For every vote you try to take from her, you probably lost three.

  8. Liberty & Justice for AllAugust 31, 2015 at 7:26 PM

    Stop picking on just the agnostic girl. If you are going to start the 22zt Century Inquisition, you are a hypocrite and a coward if you don't go for the twobAtgeust as well.

    The Pledge sayeth: "with Liberty and Justice for ALL".

    An agnostic can say "under God" and be covering their lack of faith, if you are actually going to bring your rather upon our non- Christian Councilors, if you want Justice for all, be fair, and you should ask our Latino Ministers first, they'll likely tell you to go back to the Middle Ages.

    1. um, you seem to forget one important part.
      one Nation under God, Indivisible, with Liberty and Justice for all.

      Christians against dinosaurs is divisive and anti Christian.
      Any spokesperson for the group is therefore by default the same.

    2. Wow, you still don't get it. She's not being anti-Christian. She's being anti-stupid (or pro-education which is really needed in this town). Most of the world including most Christians knows the world isn't 6000 years old. I hope CAD keeps making fun of these idiots and shames them into using their God given brains.

    Priceless, your angst and rage has me very concerned.

    Please consider joining a local Church and becoming a Christian so you can be relieved of of the needless suffering you are experiencing over this woman's sense of humor.

    Back in Seminary I wrote an attempt at parody by making fun if the Churches that wrassle with poison ous snakes. I was not making fun if Christians, just snake handlers.

    And there are likely more snake handlers than Christians that do not believe in dinosaurs.

    When you start practicing Christianity, you will be able to laugh with the rest of us.

    1. I guess this explains why she got elected.
      Jim Dandy1 and 2 , Reverand Xavie Ample. are prime examples of you just can't fix stupid and they vote.

      Southbridge you truly get the government you deserve.

    2. I may be stupid but I know a joke when I hear one. You smart guys with no sense of humor are the really dangerous ones.

  10. Priceless, why the new standard?

    Within the last few months someone that has been recentky jailed was appointed to a very important town council committee! Where was your outrage then?

    There is someone trying to get appointed to the school committee that was brought into Court by a current Councilor on the allegation that the appointment seeker had imersonated the Councilor on twitter. It did not amount to criminal charges, but it was a more solid case than what you are putting forward. Bring this to the District Court, in other words, put up or stiffle. You do not have the nerve, because you'd be exposed as an idiot and less logical than SNL's Church Lady.

    Which reminds me, do you boycott NBC because they allowed Dana Carvey, a devout Christian, to make fun of Christians because he made fun of a lady just like you?

    We have a former crack head in the Council, but she moved away for years, got help, and came back clean. Kinda stupid, but clean. As much as I do not like the woman, I would not bringg up her drug abuse in a campaign because she does not do it any longer. Are you going to go after her for not sharing her drug adventures with the voters?

    And then there is the firmer Bachelor Party Hostess. Are you too politically in tune with her to be critical?

    The Councilor that sued the town, costing the town over $10,000. in legal fees that now is critical of a citizen suing the town? Why not run both of them out of town too, even if they were both right. How dare they challenge our illustrious Council? The scriptures say give to Caesar what is Caesar's. And then there was former Council Chair McDonald that sued the town while serving in office! Hey, he was right too, but how dare he challenge our infallible leaders? If you do not like it, leave! Right?

    What? No criticism iof Chairman Moriarty for endorsing Auclair? Why not recall him for endorsing her without doing due diligence? Perhaps because he did due diligence and like most of us, he has a sense of humor. However , recall him for that other endirsement- what was he thinking? Have you seen the $200 website we got for buying that guy a $2000 software program?

    The WHOLE Council (except for Kristen Caligula Auclair) voted to hand over Wells in a no money down scam even though the RFP required a substantial deposit! How many local groups would gave gone for THAT deal AND would have actually put down a Deposit. Recall them all, throw in Kristen just to be hateful. But even though all eight of the ohers have ALL down worse things than Councilor Caligula, you'll leave them alone, and come back with more sour grapes. How can you still type when your eyes must be squinting from their tartness?

    Stop being a Sore Loser. If you were exposed for who you are, you'd get even fewer votes next time, especially if you "exposed" Auclair from every Pulpit in town.

    1. WOW! So knowledgeable and yet so accepting of low standards.

      If most of what you wrote is true it certainly explains a lot. I concur that apparently standards have been low for some time. This is not what I want to see as town governance representing me. and change has to start somewhere.

      Instead of attacking me in support of your friend (and btw attributing these comments to an innocent bystander who is owed an apology) why not seek a change for higher standards unless you are just a one trick pony in the landfill.

  11. Who is owned an apology, and why?

    Are you claiming JA is my friend bc I feel like a rogue fireman standing by with a hire as you build the fire to burn her as a witch? Don't confuse a charitable Christian perspective with friendship.

    Trick pony? Why are people always bringing the landfill into every political discussion?

    Perhaps we should pay the Council $50 for each subcommittee meeting, and $100 for every Council Meeting.BUT deduct $2 for every minute over 120 minutes( excluding Citizen's Gauntlet minutes) to discourage long winded ness by the councilors.

    Here is THE solution to the Luke warm quality of the Council. If the Candidates do not earn 10% of the registered voters in the annual election, they do not win- a lottery similar to Jury duty drafts a citizen for a one year term. Let's face it, the average voters would be better than half of those elected. AND the turnout would increase to reduce the chances of being drafted. One could buy out if a draft by paying a generous waiver.

    In other words, in the last election, we would have only elect EE Moriarty and two new Councilors would have been drafted. In truth, the Council dies not have the consent of the governed.

    We should dump the term limits, too. It dumps those with experience. And if Nikolla was re-ekected she would not have been holding up progress on this current Charter Committee.

  13. You’re out of touchSeptember 5, 2015 at 10:59 AM

    Aside from the few (?) of you who may have been in on the joke because you know her personally, the reality is that there is no indication in any of her videos that this is the case. That is reflected in the comments by many who addressed the issue of her videos on the web (just google Christians against dinosaurs and read the comments).

    If she was being insincere (something she has yet to acknowledge publicly) it still doesn’t justify the abject hatred and ridicule of religion contained on CAD’s facebook page. Nor does it explain the aborted effort to raise money from those who could only be characterized as having been taken in by this hoax.

    Those of us who wish we had been familiar with this before we voted for her are left to wonder what other delusional flights of fancy (or ideas of humor) we can expect from her in the future.

    1. Did Andy Kaufman give any indication that any of his elaborate stints were actually ruses? I think a lot of people need to reacquaint themselves with the definition of satire before passing judgement and starting a witch hunt for a very well educated and pretty funny young woman.

      I agree that somebody needs to familiarize themselves with the definition of satire as opposed to, say, hoax. However it is not the people you seem to imply it to be. I suggest you reread Mr. O’brien’s article Satire vs Hoax (http://ozonesouthbridge.blogspot.com/2015/08/satire-vs-hoax.html).
      As regards Ms. Auclair’s being well-educated what does she have beyond a diploma from Southbridge High?

  14. Well, as long as you are willing to accept delusional "flights of fancy" at the airport, spending almost $2Million for a diner dishwasher and a half dozen commodes, the horse is already out of the barn, oH darn!

    A couple $million here, a hundred thousand there, before long that'll end up tobresl money, right?

    You REALLY voted for Kristen Auclair? Why? Was it because the Prom King suggested her?

    Instead of spending all the time you did in your unsuccessful witch hunt, that energy could have been used to stop the "$millions for Fly Ins".... a worthy cause.

    THAT was proposed by a Minister! Taking that into consideratiin, if quarter million dollar toilets and dish washers are going to be acceptable to the vast majority of the Clowncil, as well meaning as they are, We Are Doomed!
