MAYOR CORBETT'S EVIL 'STATE OF THE CITY' SPEECH

2-20-14

Greetings, C. R. Mayor Corbett, City Council and all—

Johnny Carson’s 'lie detector' http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hef7v6fp_DQ would have blown itself out with Cedar Rapids' Mayor Corbett’s State of the City speech, on 2-19-14.  Iowalive empathizes with Gazette reporter, Rick Smith, as he tries to desensitize himself from the evil he was compelled to report, most of which is used and scored in the following table. 

It is noteworthy Corbett did not gloat over upcoming  approval of the evil casino, as his pals on the Iowa Racing and Gaming Commission will surely deliver in April.  But that’s another story--and table of Integrity Index Scores. 

You can expect a flowery Gazette editorial as a follow up to the speech.   Mayor Corbett, Council and Gazette editors remain in denial over the huge east side, west side split in the city, which will worsen as more evil is practiced, revealed and smelled—and C. R. citizens well know the smell of shadows and evil.   

The numbers in the table show evil, and evil begets evil.  Iowalive reports, you decide. 

CEDAR RAPIDS, CITY OF EVIL SMELLS

AT LEAST 35% OF CLAIMED STATE AND FEDERAL FUNDING WILL BE WASTED--AND THAT WRECKS THE INTEGRITY INDEX SCORES FOR THE MONEY..WHICH ARE STILL FAR BETTER THAN CORBETT'S OTHER CLAIMS.  AND…ONLY 20% OF THE SALES TAX MONEY WILL EFFECTIVELY FIX STREETS.  IT'S A SCAM!
