Arlington Republicans and Democrats Agree: 'Never Mind the FY14 Budget, Party's Over Here at the U.S.S. Arlington'

Hey Yupette,

Want to know why both the Dems and Repubs told the County Board to "raise our taxes, please" at Saturday's County Board meeting? Because the FY14 Budget and taxes aren't a priority this year. What IS the #1 Priority of the VIPs from both parties? The massive Pay-to-Play Extravaganza set for the U.S.S. Arlington's commissioning ceremony the week before the ceremony, on April 6th.

Just check out the Dems and Repubs at a recent pre-commissioning dress rehearsal at arlingtonva.tv/uss-arlington-sponsors-reception/ (or just search "USS Arlington Sponsor's Reception: Arlington TV).

Obviously, all the pre-commissioning dress rehearsals are costing Arlington taxpayers a fortune, but what can we do when ALL the County's VIPs want to throw galas and parties and hook up with companies and organizations that will "pay to play"?

Ain't it the truth! Neither party gives a hoot about the so-called "little people"...except when it comes time for the "little people" to cough up even more taxes.

U.S.S Arlington Sponsor's Reception? Check it out on YouTube. What a hoot. Every VIP pol in Arlington attended. I wonder how many are following Zimmy's example and becoming "Consultants" aka "Grafters".

We ain't seen nothin' yet. Wait until about March 30th. This was just another little rehearsal.

Thanks for the L.B. cast photo from the first couple seasons, before they become born-again neo-cons.

Grafters? How many corporations and organizations have Jay and Rob already signed up for pay-to-play with the County Board via U.S.S. Arlington events?

Jay Fisette and his domestic partner are a multi-count federal grand jury RICO indictment waiting to happen.

Pay to Play? How about all the County Board meetings dedicated to this and that special interest or corporation?

Our neighborhoods are being overwhelmed by in-fill. Time to kick them out, starting with Fisette aka Fi$$ete.

Where was ACTA, the so-called Arlington County Taxpayers Association?

Where was the Green Party? Sitting in the back of the County Board room with their fellow country club limo liberals and the $ierra Club.

So the Arlington Republican Party's position vis a vis the FY 14 Budget is raise the tax rate another 6.7 cents and put the money in a 'rainy day fund'?

Watch the video...bunch of old North Arlington Republicrats. Guess they haven't been getting much excitement from R-rated drivel at the Signature lately.

U.S.S Arlington - USN 'Love Boat', or Light Aircraft Carrier?

North Arlington Republicrats? Same old CivFed crowd that goes around with the non-resident planning and economic development staff telling South Arlington residents we have to build affordable in-fill housing in our neighborhoods for their servants?

No more Kubicki Theater at the CivFed, what's a Republicrat to do?

I wonder if Jay and Rob need 'pay to play' interns for the event? My brother has just completed a term at the Allenwood Federal Retraining Center and has a lot of experience in the area of mortgage lending.

Previous comment is totally correct. Jay Fi$$ete = 'Party's Over Here' Mindset + Lives in a Bubble.

You must mean the White Citizens Council Elitists from VOICE, especially those who live near the Washington Golf and County Club.

U.S.S. Arlington can function as a light aircraft carrier with Harrier II fighter jets. The 'humanitarian assistance' PR is just U.S. Navy PR. The ship was constructed for Third World warfighting.

Looks like space for a dozen or more Harrier fighter jets on the U.S.S. Arlington's flight deck and in the hanger.

Everything connected with the U.S.S. Arlington is a charade.

Another big USN non-secret: the 30mm defensive gun mounts on the U.S.S Arlington can be easily replaced by 5 inch gun mounts for long range bombardment of 'terrorists'.

Agree 'Humanitarian Assistance" USN PR is just more PR.

Why is Arlington County so corrupt? Because the corruption is bi-partisan.

Anyone know how much it costs to arrange a "staff meeting" in the County Board offices?

The local media and so-called 'better government activists' are either bought off or are de facto ward heelers.

U.S.S. Arlington a U.S. Navy P.R. charade? No fooling. The United States military is so humanitarian the President of Afghanistan wants us out of his country.

Bi-Partisan Corruption? Like holding County Board 'staff meetings' to decide on corporate welfare packages for REITs whose corporate officers heavily contributed to Romney last year? LOL.

Have you noticed that the Greens and Repubs are either silent at County Board meetings or rant about trivia?

Arlington "Greens"? You must mean the Arlington Chapter of the CIA-Homeland Security-IMF-World Bank-DOD-Contractors Current and Retired Employees Opposed to Big Bad Government.

Whereas, the Independent Greens are retired-military-DOD contractors who never saw a road they didn't want to make over into a railroad.

Arlington Green Party and Green Party of Virginia are a continuing embarrassment to the Green Party of the United States.
