UPDATE: 06.27.2013:  SEVEN COUNCIL MEMBERS, SEVEN ETHICS COMPLAINTS, BE THERE TODAY AT 3:00PM MAYOR’S CHAMBERS.. THIS IN REGARDS TO THE COUNCIL INADVERTAINLY PASSING THE MEASURE A  INITIATIVE WHICH ACCORDING TO THE CALIFORNIA STATE CONSTITUTION IS ILLEGAL.  DID THE COUNCIL WILLFULLY MISINFORM AND MISLEAD THE VOTERS ON THE VERY NATURE OF THIS MEASURE A ISSUE!  OR DID THEY JUST PASS THIS RESOLUTION 7-0 BASED ON WHAT THEIR CITY ATTORNEY HAD TO SAY?

UPDATE:06/27/2013: SLAM DUNK FOR THE COUNCIL WHO WERE A NO SHOW BUT HAD THE REPRESENTATION OF TWO ATTORNEY’S.  CONTINUING THE LONG STREAK, THE ETHICS COMMITTEE PANEL FOUND NO ETHICS VIOLATIONS COMMITTED BY THE COUNCIL..

Clapping is our 1st Amendment justification for existing when we feel there is a need to express a sign of approval.  But will this change at City Council?  Whereby have we become forgetful that one of the most important reasons for  this country existing is our first amendment right of expression in a public forum.  Will this cease to exist?  With the Fourth of July just around the corner, will a government teacher attempt to change that?  Have we become so politically correct as a society that we become afraid that a simple clap of approval may cause a divisive action to others, result in someone’s feeling being hurt or as Rusty would say as to not allow others to be included?

Or have we just become complacent and it is easier to sit and watch the world go by?

Or would we rather just bow our head in frustration as if we are carrying the whole financial world on are shoulders. How bout it Berny?

Or would it be easier to hope someone else would do the clapping for us?  Even if it can’t think for itself?

Or would a thumbs up do the same?  I’d clap just for double dipping…isn’t that now construed as a crime?

We can certainly clap if we approve of an event which is entertaining.

Or could we slap our own head wishing we would have clapped?

Clapping for approval is simply better than the sound of one hand clapping, or even better than receiving the clap.

Or could we just have an Orwellian software choice on Rusty’s computer which he can control the quantity of claps, and to pick and choose when a clap is allowed?

But can we just simply clap behind the scenes?

imagesCAMSTY7Q

Or can we clap with complete surprise that we are clapping at all?

 imagesCAM6DFX2

clapping can be for joy, and clapping for the joy of clapping…

applause

Or clapping can be just for the hell of it, just because it appears that it is expected.

Or clapping can be elusive without focus…but it certainly better to clap than getting the clap..

Clapping could be for when you think you have a good thing going.

Or can clapping just simply get down, dirty and diabolical?

Or you can anticipate the clap? or just waited out since you are not sure when to clap.. Regardless, clapping feels good..

imagesCA3NRX4N

Or can one be to studious to clap?

imagesCAMB07NL

do we sometimes forget what we are clapping for?

Or could we clap in hope that two holes of a donut actually fit somewhere?

Even if you are an authority figure?

Clapping can be in a line..

imagesCAE8MK8X

or it can be in unison..

imagesCAAGAYVO

or clapping can certainly be overwhelmingly…

imagesCAMINQFJ

you can certainly be king and clap

imagesCAUTXDGQ

or simply a taxi driver..

Whatever the activity is it certainly cannot be done in Riverside.  Especially during City Council..  because again and again you will hear the following ” We don’t applaud during public comment or otherwise, so we can include others with other opinions at the dais, so no applaud at the proceedings”.

But we could certainly clap at a bike rally, I think…I need to check..it depends on the country and the leader.

Or should we attempt to meet with clappers and find out what they are really all about?

Should we’d be told we cannot do this in the arena of the peoples arena of expression and free speech?  Or should we just be happy to be just where we are?  This is definitely an item to think about..  Clapping is a universal language that reaches far beyond our perception of our humanness.   So why would we not want to do it?  Because we are told not too?

But in any event, we look toward our human nature, we look at our provocativity, we look at the future in Riverside,  has it gone bananas?   Or just simply become a Banana Republic?

So shouldn’t authority just try to get along with clappers?

Well, of course there are exceptions, unless your General Clapper.. (Doesn’t he look a bit like City Manager Scott Barber?)

    So her you have it, Clap, smile, frown,laugh, shed a tear, raise an Eye brow, etc., You get your hands cuffed and arrested! I don’t know about the rest of you, but I do not want my tax dollars, (oh yes, and Measure A dollars) spent on arresting people, for having, or exhibiting an expression. Really, Rusty, this is not High School and these are not teenagers. You are suppose to be the Mayor of this great city and lead by example! Who the hell do you think you are! All of you. Riverside has become a laughing stock to the inland empire. Where is the respect and dignity to those who work hard and should have a voice in their community. Beware of your own fate, all of you, for what goes around will come around. Those golden perches you sit on every Tuesday, do not make you who you are. Go back to the beginning, why did you run for council? Have you met your goals? or have you become the “I need the pay check kind of guy, or gal”. The respect of the elected officials is a compliment to the city they serve. I certainly do not respect not one of those sitting on our council nor our mayor, city attorney or city manger to name a few.

    I’m hoping Rusty Bailey will conduct a class on how to clap appropriately.

  6. When you establish NO CLAPPING as a rule in the council chambers – where does it end? No smiling? First amendment rights!
