EFC Residents - Back to the Drawing Board

Hello Yupette,

I am a very angry EFC homeowner of a single-family home and I will not go along with Zimmerman and his sleazy Planning Commissioner Nancy Hunt and the lawyers, Reits, and County Staffers, Chamber of Commerce Enablers like McCaffrey, and so-called Community Leaders, like Mike Nardolilly, (many, if not most of these people don't even live in Arlington County) trying to impose another Shirlington on my neighborhood.

What we want is to replace old buildings with new buildings that preserve the residential character of East Falls Church. Is that too much to ask? Only if you are part of an out-of-control County Government that counts one of its economic development "successes" requiring Trader Joes to only pay $500,000 in graft to open a new store in Clarendon.

PLEASE, EFC Homeowners, attend the so-called EFC "Planning" Meeting next Tuesday and prevent our community from being destroyed by Zimmerman and his lackeys in County Government who are enabling the REITs to take over Arlington, neighborhood by neighborhood.

Kim - EFC

Let's be civil. Why should anyone be angry? Trader Joes was happy to only have to pay $500,000 in graft to persons employed by Arlington County.

Well what the f-- can they expect after 25 years of wheeling, dealing, and stealing? That everyone continues to go along with their community-destroying REIT rip-offs to feather their Yupscale retirement nests?

The bribes paid by TJs to the County Board, Economic Development, Planning Commission, etc., would be the profits from a week's worth of sales at the Clarendon TJ store. I agree. Time to be civil to the County Board for doing what it had to do to help itself while helping us.

TJs is part of a multi-national corporation that knows what it has to do achieve success.

Would the sleazy Republicans like Nancy Hunt, Wayne Kubicki, and Jim Pebley who Zimmerman appoints to the various Sheeple Contol Commissions do any better on the County Board than Zimmy? Doubtful.

That's why they've never run for County Board. They enjoy being County Board Sheeple Control Commissioners.

Don't forget the Democratic Sheeple Control Commissioners, Inta Malis, Bill Gearhart, etc.

County Government, the media, everyone in power in Arlington is corrupt. We are being sold out to the out-of-state and foreign corporations who get huge tax breaks to make huge profits here.

Trader Joes is not a California-based corporation. It is a German multi-national.

See the big ads on Scotty's Me, Myself, and I blog for TD Bank - America's Most Convenient Bank. Ever wonder what TD stands for? Toronto Dominion.

I would like to know whether the majority of the Arlington Chamber of Commerce's Executive Committee live in Arlington County.

Trader Joes has been owned since 1979 by the Albrechts - the late Theo (died last year at age 88) and Karl (90 years old). Karl is among the 10 wealthiest persons in the world. Both enlisted in the Wermacht and were loyal soldiers of the Third Reich.

Zimmerman, Fisette and Favola are de facto Rockefeller Republicans like Nanny Nancy. They share the same fondness for bad monolithic architecture, mega-deals with out-of -state corporations, mega "urban renewal", and micro-management of everything and everybody. It helps that Zimmy and Nanny Nancy grew up in New York when Rockefeller was Governor.

Is the Arlington Connection newspaper still being published? If so, it's the only Arlington newspaper that's owned by an in-state corporation.

Appears that the majority of the Chamber's Executive Committee don't live in Arlington, are employed by out-of-state corporations or non-profits, or both. Also appears that no Latinos or Asians serve on the Chamber's Board of Directors.

If you are not of Northern European / Western European ancestry you are not welcome on the Arlington Chamber's Board of Directors.

Let me guess - there's one or two persons on the Chamber's Board of Directors who are African Americans?

So EFC's future is going to be determined by out-of-state elitists working with local elitists? That sucks.

Deja Vu 1961 is a pretty accurate assessment. Appears there might be one or two persons on the Chamber's BOD who might be Jewish.

Arlington Chamber's motto is the same as the Post's and the County Board's - "Resegregation Through Gentrification".

Theo Albrecht (died in 2010) served with the Afrika Korps. Karl Albrecht served on the Eastern Front and his military activities are not well-known. Theo was kidnapped in 1971 and released after a large ransom was paid. He and his brother became recluses. Their corporate retail empire was/is run by others, in the past they include former SS, Hitler Youth, and National Socialist (Nazi) Party members. Those corporate managers retired years ago and are now dead, or if alive, are over 80 years old.

The military SS was very large, at least 20 SS divisions, and service in a SS unit does not automatically mean complicity in war crimes.

Many SS officers were not punished for war crimes committed by those under their command unless the atrocities were repeated and/or involved more than a few victims.

The Sun Gazette's parent, American Community Newspapers, is owned by a consortium that includes not only out-of-state but foreign corporations.
