Zany Duo Plan November City Hall Routine That Will Have Locals Laughing Out Loud

Just when you thought the politicians and environmental wackos in Fernandina Beach couldn’t get any crazier they do.

If you’re in town November 19, make sure to attend the Fernandina Beach City Commission “workshop” beginning at 5 p.m. at city hall. Get there early for a good seat and get ready for some aisle-rolling, knee-slapping, laugh-out-loud material as two wild and wacky Commissioners — Johnny “Moonbeam” Miller and the smirking Mike “Left Coast” Lednovich — team up to perform their “Plastic Straws” routine.

That’s right folks, this is an entire City Commission workshop devoted to “Plastic Straws” starring two of the city’s zaniest politicos.

A note from City Manager Dale Martin’s office alerted me to the performance, oops, I mean workshop, and Administrative Services Manager Nicole Bednar confirmed to me that the session was placed on the agenda July 2 by Moonbeam with Left Coast suggesting the workshop. However, she didn’t refer to them by their stage names.

I’m not privy to what’s in the skit, but insiders tell me that the Moonbeam-Left Coast Plastic Straw sketch will make Monty Python’s Search for the Holy Grail and Mel Brooks’ Blazing Saddles look like serious dramas. This “do not miss” show should keep the audience in stitches as the two describe how plastic straws are destroying the environment, melting glaciers, raising sea levels, eliminating endangered species, and terrifying small children.

From what I understand it’s a routine that borrows heavily from material performed at similar venues in California for the past several years and the duo have adapted generously from that for their Fernandina Beach audience.

The performance is rated PG but is not recommended for the extremely dim and gullible.

In other environmental shenanigans and performances, the trio of local extremist groups – Amelia Tree Conservancy (ATC), Conserve Amelia Now (CAN) and the local branch of the Sierra Club — all hell-bent on leading us out of the muck of our environmental insensitivities, are conjuring up additional plans on how they can continue to seriously aggravate and annoy the vast majority of area residents.

During their most recent politburo session at Story & Song Neighborhood Bookstore Bistro, the three groups met to lick their wounds after Administrative Law Judge E. Gary Early sucked the wind out of their sagging sails squelching their hopes of stopping the Citrona Road Amelia Bluff housing development.

Margaret Kirkland, an ATC board member WHO DOES NOT live in Fernandina Beach, but continuously skulks around in it telling property owners here where they can stick their property rights, said her group is actively seeking other avenues to halt any sign of economic progress in the city.

Her “the end is near” prophesy will soon be realized she says unless commissioners and city management listen to her and legislate that property owners do as she demands with their real estate.

The ill-conceived lawsuit by these three groups cost city taxpayers between $20,000- $30,000 to defend and their suit was funded by contributions  including one by their poster-boy politician, “Left Coast” Lednovich, who serves on the City Commission and yet contributes money to sue the city. There is something very, very wrong with this picture.

At their politburo session she lamented the fact that Florida is a state “with strong support for property owners’ rights.” That’s a sharp stick in the eye for the likes of Ms. Kirkland and her zombie-like followers.  She suggested to this group of like-minded tree-huggers that they move to infiltrate the city staff and stack the commission by urging “conservationists” to run for office.

Commenting on the losing Amelia Bluff lawsuit she said: “We didn’t have any choice about whether to go forward with this. The community demanded it.” Really? I don’t recall demanding it. None of my friends or neighbors demanded it. The only people I know that demanded it were the handful of loud, obnoxious, anti-property-rights, sign-waving extremists, and Left Coast Lednovich. Oh, and Ms. Kirkland, who DOES NOT live here.

The folks making all these demands are the same people who worship at the alter of Michael Mann, the architect of the discredited ‘Hockey Stick’ graph who tells people to believe the science but was implicated in manipulating data in Climategate and refuses to provide the data to back up his graph.

These people claim superiority over the rights of property owners and when denied the righteousness they feel they are due throw shrieking spittle-flecked tantrums. They’re amusing to watch, but can be financially devastating if not controlled by vigilant citizens at the ballot box. Having more than two “Moonbeams” and “Left Coast” Lednovich’s on the City Commission would not be a laughing matter and would bring the economic curtain down on our community.

Just Wondering: Bernie Sanders said Cuba has the best health care in the world. So, what hospital in Havana did he go to for his heart stint operation?

The Demoban: The Democrat Party is the closest political entity this country has to the Taliban. Like the Taliban its obvious objective is to slow the economy and make everyone dependent on a government run by them. Let’s take a look at what the Democrats have given us so far: ISS and its caliphate, Antifa, Black Lives Matter, the MeToo Movement, a war on police, an open southern border and millions of illegal aliens, and a failed and expensive national health care program, among others. They have no new agenda. Their campaign platform is bleak. In their outrageous “New Green Deal” they’re calling for banning air traffic, outlawing the internal combustion engine, eliminating cows (they fart too much they say), and dismantling the oil and gas industry. I’m not making any of this up, really! In spite of a roaring economy, rising wages, more jobs than job seekers, unemployment at record low levels among all demographics and low inflation, a record-setting stock market, and a healthy and strong military, the bad-news Democrats want to slam the brakes on all of it in an ill-conceived and lame attempt to impeach the president responsible for all the good news. They have no crime, only an impeachment hearing in search of one. In their campaign for the presidency they advocate for socialism and open borders, health care for illegals, slavery reparations (whether you were a slave owner or not) and a guaranteed annual income compliments of the US taxpayer. In regard to the culture they are reduced to promoting gender-free restrooms; telling little girls they can be little boys and telling little boys they can be little girls; transgender rights; and a “white male privilege” program designed to convince masculine white males to become weenies without a cause. Oh, they also want to disarm Americans and get rid of the Second Amendment. They’re also eyeing the First Amendment saying it promotes “hate speech.” The Democrats have become psychotic in the causes they support. I think any member of the Taliban would have as good a chance of winning the Democrat Party’s nomination for President as any of the far left-wing screwballs currently running. I don’t see much difference between the two groups, except not all the Democrats have taken to wearing hijabs and turbans yet.

Dangerous Dems: The US is currently ranked third in the world for murder. I’ve seen statistics that if the numbers for Chicago, Detroit, DC, St Louis and New Orleans were eliminated the country would be 189 out of 193. If Baltimore wasn’t included it might even be 191 of 193. All of these cities are run by liberal Democrats, and most have black police chiefs. It’s culture, not racism. The worst thing that happened to black communities was the welfare program that paid women to have babies and get the man out of the house. It ripped apart an old culture of tight black families and now there are 76% of black babies being born to single mothers, creating a lot of the issues seen today in schools and these communities. The old family culture was destroyed. For what? Can anyone explain this?

Strike Three: Last night at the Sandbar Restaurant & Kitchen at Main Beach I watched the St. Louis Cardinals defeat the Atlanta Braves, 7-6, in a National  League Divisional playoff game. I was disappointed at the outcome of the game, but after looking around the restaurant I began wondering “where are the kids?” That was after my pals at the bar and I began reminiscing about how, when we were kids, we’d rush home after school to listen to the games on radio or watch them on TV. The one we were watching last night was one of those rare games that started at 5 p.m. but start times for the remainder of the games is 8 p.m. and later. Any fan that has to get up early the next day is screwed. But baseball should be worried mostly about its future fans, elementary school-aged kids who are in bed by the time the games start. The only kids hereabouts I know that will be allowed to watch this late are two named “Avery” and “Maddux”, the progeny of the delightful and talented former Fernandina Beach Commissioner and Mayor Robin Lentz, one of the most rabid baseball fans I’ve ever met, who named her children after two prominent Braves pitchers. Currently the average age of of viewers watching televised baseball games is is 57, the oldest in professional sports. Unless baseball does something to attract younger viewers it will lose an entire generation of fans. So, instead of worrying about who is going to buy SUV’s and beer, put the games on at a time the kids and grandkids can watch. They’re  the future consumers of the crap being advertised and baseball’s future fan base.

“A a college administrator I can sell anything!”

Help Wanted? After watching recent television shows and reading a series of articles about student loan debt I’ve come to the conclusion that if I ran a marketing organization and needed to hire crack salespeople, I’d recruit from the administrative staffs of the country’s colleges and universities. How can a 21 or 22-year-old graduate from a four-year educational institution, be saddled with $80,000 or more of debt and have nothing to show for it but a degree in Psychology, African/American Affairs, Women’s Studies, Puppetry Arts, Equestrian Studies, etc.?  If those graduates make $30,000 a year — ever — they’ll be lucky. The folks who sold this codswallop to these kids and their parents must be terrific salespeople, just like conman Professor Harold Hill, who sold entire towns on a boy’s band concept in the legendary musical “The Music Man.” It’s these college hucksters and their pyramid organization of down-chain high school counsellor salespeople that I’d be recruiting to staff my sales force…we’d be unstoppable selling ice to Eskimos and sand to Arabs. The top salesperson could be presented with the company’s annual Bernie Madoff award.

Well Dave, I am not writing about politics this time, because your ultra-right-wing views are as stale as ever (yet still laughable), but for your like-minded ilk, who always guffaw and giggle at your same old slams (reconstituted of course), its good your flat-earthers to have a more eloquent writer (meaning you), than does their/your beloved Ronald McDonald Chump (DUMP CHUMP 2020)...ah but I digress, sorry. About baseball and start times for playoff games...I just wanted to remind you that they are broadcast for National audiences, so believe it or not, there are people still working in California, when its 7:30 pm here in the east...so until the right wing bans California from the Union, I guess we are just going to have to share the National Pastime with them!

A recent study revealed that the biggest contributor to microplastic pollution along the Pacific coast is "dust" from rubber automobile tires. Californians may give up their straws , but are they ready to give up their cars?

John Goshco

9 October , 2019 at 1:14 am

Things I wonder about: Do the tires on electric vehicles pollute the air and ocean less than the tires on fossil fuel vehicles? What if the electricity is produced by the wind? Does that help? What if high winds tend to blow down power lines, so they shut down the power grid in 34 counties in northern California to (hopefully) prevent the forest fires, but the people go out and buy gasoline and diesel for their cars and generators. Does that help anything? Just wondering.

Lets say you figure that you owe $500 in taxes, but you're out of work and don't have the money and you don't file..... The IRS calculates your taxes (ignoring any deductions or exemptions) and figures you owe them $2000. Then they add a non-filing penalty and start charging you monthly interest. Every month they add more interest and every year they add whatever additional penalties might apply. Pretty quickly, the interest on the penalties and interest on the taxes is much more than the original tax owed. In the interest of "settling the account" the IRS may offer to abate the penalties and/or some of the interest. You might end up paying $1500 for a $500 tax debt, but you may avoid another $10,000 in penalties and interest on the penalties.

These two council members certainly have their elevators hung up in the basement. I am not a straw user, paper or plastic. This well future House Speaker, the bumbling bartender AOC, had a woman speak at a town hall and this woman stated if we really want to do something something about climate change we need to eat babies. I guess this is abortion 2.0.

As I read your blog each week, I keep telling myself that you're making this stuff up. But, watching the likes of the whackos we have in Washington in the democrat (note that I do not use the term democratic because there's no collective good about the numbnuts in control of the House or the whole party for that matter) party it seems like you're living in the minor leagues of the crazies. But I doubt that your brand of political wanna-bes down there will ever get the call to play in the majors for fruitcakes -- Washington, DC. I also admire your staying power, your patience and your determination in pointing out the folly of those who walk among us, calling themselves real people. They're not real at all -- just bad players in a bad dream. Makes you want to break down and cry, if you weren't laughing so hard! Thanks for a good and fun read!!

Bernie's 3-day (so far) stint in the hospital was due to inserting a stent in his coronary arteries. Also - this is usually classified as a procedure, not an operation.

A Braves fan here since 1957 living in St. Pete as a 10 year old and around the time my Giants and Willie Mays moved to the left coast. I still can name the then Milwaukee Braves lineup in the 1957-1958 World Series. The nuns at St. Jude let us bring our transistor radios and turned on the 19" black and white TV at 1:30 for each game. True. With one exception (1995) the Braves are cursed in the playoffs. Fourteen straight division championships mostly with four future hall of famers and only one World Series? Cursed? They have not won a playoff series since 2001 losing 7 of 9 first games in that stretch! This includes last night. To be a Braves fan each playoff series is another "Groundhog Day" and I hear Sonny and Cher singing. Again and again. It's 2019 and at 72 this old guy is running out of time to see the World Series banner flying over Sun Trust Park.

Hi Micah, They could change the baseball rules to some of the ones we use in the over 65 softball league. A foul ball on the third strike is an out and only seven innings. And a tie if it goes into the tenth inning. Of course I'm kidding. I love the real baseball game.

Look on the bright side of paper straws Dave. it is good for our southern pine pulp business. It is good for the environment. Rayonier can profit from increased use of paper as the preferred packaging material vs oil based things. Paper bags are making a return and the ones we should use are as strong as plastic (but more expensive).

Did your Demoban tirade come directly from the Trumpican playbook or have you just been drinking too much of their red kool aid?

I'm just getting over my heartbreak from last night's Braves game. I've been telling anyone who will listen, that the bullpen will be the Braves undoing in these playoffs. I agree with you about the late start times. But baseball has to do other things to attract the young fan. As a traditionalist, I resist the calls to dramatically change the game, but compared to football and basketball (which have plenty of young fans) baseball moves slow. Somehow major league baseball needs to speed up the play of the game as well as start earlier.
