Dish and Direct do not use City property for their systems. They are satellite based..."beam me down Scotty". Only physical presence is their antenna on your building or in your yard, both private property. Don't know about the phone company. But they are required to share their lines with other carriers. So, who pays that?

This whole trash fiasco started out with the TLE's (aka Kyle Moore) Director of Administrative Services thinking the cost of Workmen's Comp insurance premiums could be dramatically reduced if the City used the totes and trucks equipped with lift devices. The decision was made to offer that service to residents at a considerable cost increase over the sticker system. The totes cost $65 up…
Quijote57 - REBEL MEDIA: Bush v. Clinton...yawn - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Here here! We must remember that in 1856, the GOP was a fledgling upstart made up of former Whigs and a few Democrats. Then, once Lincoln won the White House in 1860, the GOP held the Presidency for most of the next 50 years, except for the two Cleveland terms. So there is hope for another party to rise and take the place of the Repulicrats/Democans. The sooner the better!

do they charge Dish & Direct TV a fee? I thought the cable fee had something to do with them using city property to run their wire. Does phone company pay city also?

Strawman: Some Call It Red Ass.....Others Call It Obamabutt

10 months, 3 weeks ago by Strawman

 

The doctor entered the room and found a middle aged man sitting on the examination table.  The patient was attired in a hospital gown and black socks.  His shoulders were slumped and he continued to shift side-to-side on the table.

“What seems to be the problem Mr, (and with that the doctor glanced at patient’s chart), Citizen?  Citizen, is that right?”

“That’s right, doctor”, the patient responded.  “I’m A. Joe Citizen.”

“My I ask what the A stands for?” the doctor inquired.

“Average”, said the patient.  “That’s me—just Average Joe Citizen."

“Well Mr. Citizen, what seems to be the problem?” asked the doctor.

And with that the patient stood up, pulled his gown up around his waist and pointed his naked, swollen, red backside at the doctor.

“It’s my butt,” said the patient.  “It hurts all the time to the point I can barely sit down.  And the flatulence is unbelievable,” he continued.  “No matter what I eat my farts smell like an old ashtray.”

“You can put your gown down now,” said the doctor as he made a few notes on his chart.  “How long has this been going on?”

“It started in January 2009……well, I first noticed it during the summer of 2008,” said the patient.  “At first my backside was just tender and the flatulence happened rarely.  But now it’s to the point that I can barely live with it.”

“This isn’t the first case I’ve seen,” said the doctor.  “And I don’t think it will be the last.”

“Really!!  Then you can do something about it?” asked the patient.

“No, I’m sorry I can’t,” said the doctor.  “You have case of Obamabutt.  And no one has found a cure.”

“Obamabutt??—what in the world is that?, the patient inquired.

“The condition, which is at a near pandemic stage, occurs when the person listens to and believes in what the president is saying,” said the doctor.  “You did vote for Obama, right?”

“Well, yes,” said the patient.  “How did you know?”

“The ‘Obama in 2012’ t-shirt laying over there in the corner is a dead giveaway, plus you have the worse case of Obamabutt I’ve seen to date,” the doctor replied.

“Well, how do we treat it?” asked the patient. “My butt is red and swollen--my friends won’t share a confined space with me and I’m miserable!!”

“Friends?  You voted for Obama twice and you still have friends?”, asked the doctor.

“I guess you do have a point,” said the patient.

“Tell me something,” the doctor said.  “This is your first visit to my office---why me?  What happened to your family doctor?”

And with that the patient, A. Joe Citizen, grabbed both butt cheeks and cried out loudly. “Owww, it hurts!!!  Don’t mention my other doctor!!”

“Are you referring to—‘if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor?  Is that the doctor in question here?”

“Owww!!! Stop it!!! You’re making things worse!!!,” Joe cried out.

“Well then it looks like President Obama and I have something in common.  Making things worse and providing citizens a case of the red ass.  Yes, Mr. Obama and I do seem to have something in common........
