As youth violence runs amuk on streets of Sacramento, one would think the city council would put every available resource to work to address the issue. NOT!!!
Instead they have chosen to host a free screening of Al Gore’s award winning science fiction film “An Inconvenient Truth”.
Western Alliance member Stand Up and Speak out is reporting the following:
I managed to come across the news that the Sacramento City Council is hosting a screening of “An Inconvenient Truth”. Here’s the flyer that they are passing out:
As can be seen, not only are they hosting this screening, but it is during their evening session. Of course, “an inconvenient truth” is a greater priority to the council than Sacramento gang violence, crime, flooding, and other growing problems.
I wish I could say that I was surprised by this. But after spending hours debating the Patriot Act
, the War in Iraq
and a the impeachment of President Bush
; the Sacramento City Council has proven that they have no problem wasting taxpayer dollars to share their two cents on issues that are clearly outside of their authority to address; all the while ignoring key issues that they do have the authority to address.
They can’t find a way to get an arena built, but they want to stop global warming? Stupid is as Stupid does!
