Well, nobody's arguing that you have "half a brain". smirk
You obviously have no clue about the FLT so I guess we know where you are BIMBO! LOL!

LOL! If you only knew... grin
could it be that you work at the FLT. That would explain a lot.

]LETTER: Sign riles people up, doesn’t show compassion, empathy


&#61664;
To the Editor:

The First Amendment right is a double-edge sword, at least most people think so. I, on the other hand, think it opens things up for discussion and for people to then agree to disagree. The conversation helps us understand each other’s perspective because that’s what life is all about. No one’s story is the same, but to find common ground shows maturity.

I’m definitely an understanding person, but I really can’t understand why people are so upset at others for not agreeing with the city worker who cheered on Trump his whole campaign and then posted balloons for his birthday. Geneva, being proud of its diversity (unless that’s just a show to get more young kids to go to Hobart and William Smith), wasn’t so outraged by his actions, but I will speak for why I am.

One, during the whole presidential race we saw this sign in our face. Whenever you went to Wegmans you were guaranteed to see it. I paid it no mind, but do you know how many minorities and immigrants that live in this city and town had to see it? I went to school with a lot of immigrants at Geneva High that went on to do greater things than just working for a city (Although they definitely do a good job). I know nurses, welders and a doctor that were here illegally. Of course they got their “green card” (it’s yellow, by the way). So why do we need to see the sign now? He won.

Two, as a worker for the City, you’d think he’d have more compassion and empathy. Clearly he doesn’t because that requires a heart, which he doesn’t have. You’re here to work for the city and provide an environment that’s civil along with functional. Yes, everyone has an opinion, but to display ignorant, delusional beliefs on everyone else is just sad. You’re supposed to support the community, help its upkeep and help bridge the gap in a sense with the community and its workers. But I guess you have to compensate for other things elsewhere.

Three, we’re more than just females. Once upon a time we had a city worker who was African American and a female. I used to see her working while I was on the school bus as a young girl and she touched my soul. Kid you not I wanted to join the city crew so bad. Unfortunately, she got run out and left due to, of course, a better job and all the passive-aggressive passes she got from men. We are females. We work as hard as guys do and probably even harder. Stop trying to pass us as just a nice face and pretty body like we’re not hard workers. We can get as down and dirty as you can.

The reason behind this letter is to inform you all why we’re so mad about the sign. Not everyone is a racist, just like not everyone is a con. Females aren’t just baby makers and we have opinions. What that sign stands for is more than just a “haha hehe.” It’s showing ignorance and bias. And I’m not talking just about Trump. Just because you work for the city doesn’t mean you can do what you want. You’re supposed to put a face to Geneva and you’ve failed. We’re diverse. We’re women. We’re Geneva.

(Editor’s note: We are withholding the writer’s name on request.)

did the writer or the FL Times offer any reason why a person can not put up a sign on their property?

What little I know about Shaw, tells me that I should take that as a major complement. Unfortunate for you that you don't recognize the same.

then people have no reason to complain about the sign being put up, there was not a reason for a person to write into the local paper about the sign or to leave their name from the letter

wonder if hillary write in her book that she also blamed the sign for HER lose?


she was over an hour and a half late to her own first book signing

must be she was taking a nap...

Not if it violates city codes, you can', and it most definitely DID violate more than one.

you failed to point out which codes it violated

if it violated any codes it would have been taken in short order as the street is a heavily traveled one (pointed out by the person that wrote into the FLTimes that it is a heavily traveled street)

if it violated any codes then FLTimes would have pointed that out to the person who wrote into the paper - (must be you do not even get the FLTimes)

there would be no reason for the person to withhold their name from the FLTimes

so we will ask you yet again

WHICH CODES DID IT VIOLATE

yawn...
