Rabbit out of a hat

Rabbit out of a hatThere are essentially two kinds of magic:

1. You really pull a rabbit out of an empty hat.

2. You appear to pull a rabbit out of an empty hat.

One kind of magic doesn’t exist and the other is simply an illusion.

What kind of magic does Hillsborough County Chairman Al Higgenbotham plan to use to  pull out of the “no new taxes” hat, both a Choo-Choo for Tampa AND a new ballpark?

The suspense is building.

    There must be new names assigned to a couple of BOCC members.
    Higginbotham is caballo= horse. Then there is Hagan, formerly Dust Bunny, upgraded to canejo= hare. Soon, the zoo will add several residents. In time we can look forward to revealing guinea pigs, lizards, chameleons, doves, and giraffes. Alas, my apologies to the animal kingdom.

    The outfit THDEC had another PRESENTATION FOR THE PLAN to proceed with the findings, DEC 2 out at USF. Only 5 citizens attended. There, of course, were more paid lobbyist, government employees, and very special interests.

    The findings are inadequate and not realistic.

    Poor methods of gathering information and poor assemblage have resulted with a POOR PRODUCT. The public coffers, because CONEJO PUSHED FOR A CONTRACT, have already been raided and $900.000.00 has been spent in the last two years. NOW, please remember this outfit helped the CONEJO
    contrive to get the TAX ABATEMENT onto the ballot WITHOUT A PUBLIC HEARING.

    There is no magic in what CONEJO AND CABALLO are now trying to push over on the public for their buddies to benefit from now and in the future.

    THIS GOVERNMENT IS A SHELL GAME….who has the pea and who is manipulating the shells? OPACITY IS THE PLAN….get rid of public input and where possible overturn votes made in BOCC FORUM with lots of PUBLIC PRESENT; and, later regurgitated for the question of bringing life to an inadequate person to help cover the CONEJO machinations which are not to the advantage of the PEOPLE OF HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY…A WORKSHOP
    IS HARDLY THE PLACE TO BRING BACK QUESTIONS IN THE DARK WITHOUT
    MORE NOTICE TO THE PUBLIC. Now, we have a Miracle Merrill as county administrator, who is going to help CONEJO keep the cover-ups going.
    Illusions…blowing smoke in the ears of the people and telling them their hair is on fire….then issuing a fire warning.

    NOW, LET US SIT BACK AND WATCH HOW CABALLO AND CONEJO conjure
    how to use the FUNDS we need FOR VITAL PUBLIC PURPOSES to be spent on BASEBALL EFFORTS AND LIGHT RAIL WE DO NOT NEED.

    Go outside and look for the buses we already have…where is DAVIR ARMIJO and those schedules for the working people????
