After the jump, what Schutze thinks of Richardson (and every other suburb of Dallas).It's a simple challenge. Jefferey Muhammad, I call you a chicken-shit liar. Prove me wrong.Source: Unfair Park.
I'm a go-along, get-along kind of guy. Cooperate. Compromise. Consensus. Win-win. It's the way I was raised. When I was young, I used to think it was the American way. One nation. E Pluribus Unum. Melting pot. I'm learning not to be so naive, but I'm still caught off guard when I run across people to whom a preference for compromise or tolerance is considered a character flaw. Or when an effort to promote regional cooperation is considered to be "a bunch of feel-good lah-lah-lah" only meant to distract the other party long enough to stab him. Here's Schutze again:
You really have to read the rest of his article, especially if you think that all of us in North Texas (urban, suburban, exurban) are in this together, that we need to find ways to work together to solve our problems, because in the end, we all share the same air, water, and other natural resources. If even a self-identified "libtard" like Jim Schutze doesn't buy into that, it ought to be warning enough to Richardson city council members, city staff or city appointees to some regional board or other to watch your backs. If you are involved in some regional discussion or other and it isn't obvious to you who is being set up as the patsy in some master plan or other, it could very well be us. Because Jim Schutze says we're in a back-alley fight, whether we know it or not.[H]ere's the important thing for you and me. If we really believe in urban life, if we love the city, then the dumbest thing we can do is get lulled into all this crap about regionalism and cooperation. This is a back-alley fight where the quickest knife wins.Source: Unfair Park.
