Watergate, After 36 Years, Viewed From St. Augustine, Florida
Watergate was about Nixon and thugs stealing our democracy.
After 36 years, viewed from St. Augustine, Florida, there's still crookedness in the world, including this beautiful town, beset by mendacity, meanness and mediocrity. See below.
Where else in the world would government officials dump solid waste in the Nation's Oldest City's Old City Reservoir, get caught, and then propose sending it back to an historic African-American community (Lincolnville).
Environmental Racism? Crime in the suites? Corruption?
You bet. But does the State's Attorney, Sheriff, Police, FDLE or FDEP bother to put the cuffs on City Manager WILLIAM B. HARRISS or any of his minions?
Does Representative WILLIAM L. PROCTOR (R-St. Augustine), Chancellor of Flagler College, former St. Augustine City Commissioner and City Planning Commission member, Republican Lord of All He Surveys, answer quesitons about his involvement in the illegal dumping (including receiving a maximum campaign contribution from AKERMAN SENTERFITT on November 15, 2007, only two days after the City Commission approved (November 13, 2007) sending back tens of thousands of cubic yards contaminated solid waste to the African-American community of Lincolnville?
WILLIAM L. PROCTOR is Nixon personified, Chancellor of a college with no tenure, no academic freedom, and no respect for the people of the City of St. Augustine -- a college named after a convicted violator of antitrust laws, HERNY FLAGLER, which was founded by the bastard heirs of HENRY FLALGER, the great American monopolist, a thug who (with John D. Rockefeller I) wreaked the Standard Oil Trust upon the world.
In the words of American playwright Eugene O'Neill (A Moon for the Misbegotten), "Goddamn Standard Oil." May the cartelists using a putative college to support the City Hall regime be defeated in November 2008, starting with tatterdemalion, unfriendly, reprobate Representative WILLIAM L. PROCTOR.
As we sang at St. Paul's A.M.E. Church at the January 10, 2008 Stop the Dump meeting,
we shall overcome."
Notice any resemblance between Richard Nixon and WILLIAM L. PROCTOR? Is it unintentional or was Nixon the role model for the rude, ruthless PROCTOR?
Is it part of the sad heredity of crabbed social dominator types like WILLIAM L. PROCTOR, Jr. (see John Dean's book, "Conservatives Without Conscience") that PROCTOR bears more than a passing resemblance to a weasel?
