Happyville Has Vanished


All my summer fun is gone, and my blog visits were (literally) off the charts since Happyville arrived.

I tried the link to Happyville to see what they were doing today and it says that their blog has been deleted.

Oh, drat.

No more truth, justice, and the American way?

Who were those guys?  Lord Mayor Georgia’s political consultants?  Stipp’s lobbyist pals? Rogue Goodyear employees gone off the reservation?  Perhaps we’ll never know.

But if anyone finds out who they were, let me know please.

Take a Poll. Why Won’t They Tell You Who They Are?


If the folks over at the imitation blog site really were just ordinary local citizens as they would like you to believe they are who just all decided to band together one day to right all the wrongs, lies, rumors etc that I have committed on my blog, why wouldn’t they be willing to tell everyone exactly who they are, and where they live?

Take the following poll and let me know what you think is the reason they want to remain anonymous.

Imitation is Still the Sincerest Form of Flattery; Part Last


I can think of no good reasons why someone would want to hide behind a curtain of anonymity unless they believe that telling you who they are would somehow hurt their credibility.

It makes one wonder what they are afraid of?

I guess the “imitation” Goodyear blog is paying close attention to my posts.  Someone just sent me the posting below from the “imitation” Goodyear blog where they say they are going to ‘debunk’ some myths. My comments are in bold.

Myth #1
No. We are not city employees wasting your taxes (tax) dollars on a blog. 
We ARE private citizens who are sick and tired with (of) lies and rumors being spread about this city. (but they still refuse to tell you who they are)

Myth #2
We don’t make up fictitious names, respond to our own posts, and agree with ourselves.  (I’m not sure if they are accusing me of that or if someone has accused them of it but I do know that there is a fictious “mike williams” PC resident who advertises for them)
We tell the truth (trust me, even though I won’t tell you who I am) and give accurate information (trust me again). Which, in fact, makes this silly little game unnecessary.  (They think discussing good governance in Goodyear is a game.  Just like the current regime.  The current regime is first and foremost about winning and self aggrandizement.  Not good governance.)

Myth #3
If you read the “other” blog, you’d think that Interim Fire Chief Luizzi couldn’t remember what he and a former council candidate were talking about that got the former candidate arrested. You’d think that because that’s why (what) the “other” blog wrote.  The AZ Republic news article said Luizzi could not remember what the “confrontation” was about. 

The real question is, why are they still not willing to tell you their names. They keep referring to themselves as ‘we’ so I assume there is more than one of them.

As amusing as this is, I won’t bore you with anymore about these guys in the future. As I said before, imitation is still the sincerest form of flattery.

A Visit to Happyville


I know I told you all that I wouldn’t spend any more time on the new imitation blog that won’t tell you who they are but I’m sorry, I changed my mind, this is way too much fun for me to ignore and besides that, they have given me a near infinite supply of material to write about now and as a result my own blog’s visitor traffic has exploded since they started.

Thank you, imitation bloggers.  And I thought with the election being over that this might turn out to be a slow summer!

I’ll refer to the site as Happyville since they choose to remain otherwise anonymous and they only have positive things to say about the current regime in Goodyear.

In Happyville;

  1. Pete Lamphere is a featured commenter (they don’t have many comments so Pete is on the first page).  He probably knows who the people are who run Happyville. Pete’s the guy who claimed his computer was hacked and he never made any of those slanderous comments on my blog. I can’t wait to read what Pete has to say.
  2. Police and Fire Unions don’t boycott local businesses
  3. Politicians don’t hire out of state political consultants to try to get their opponents disqualified
  4. You can believe everything that well informed and financially astute politicians tell you
  5. There are no self aggrandizing politicians who have their opponents arrested
  6. When bloggers won’t tell you their names you still trust them and it’s not considered propaganda either.
  7. You can drink all the Koolaid you want because it’s all free, and we’ll never have to pay for it.  Ever.

Now, let’s take our first visit to Happyville.

“About” No Names, Please

We’ll start with Happyville’s ‘About’ tab.  In the About tab, the propagandists in Happyville are more than willing to start telling you what to think. They tell you that they think what they are doing is ‘silly’.  That is Happyville speak for, “we don’t think you are all smart enough out there to see that this is a cheer leading site for the current regime in Goodyear”.

Next they tell you that they are private citizens, just to put your mind at ease.  Sounds pretty good so far. Nothing to worry about here, they just don’t want to tell you their real names or where they live. After all, they’re private citizens.  Carl Rove is a private citizen, and so is E. J. Montini, liberal writer for the AZ Republic. You already know that whatever those two guys write is unbiased so why would you even want to know who is writing the Happyville blog?  After all, they are, private citizens.

Debunk Junk. Warning; Logic Suspension Area and Mocking Chalk Drawings

Let’s go on to the Debunk Junk section of Happyville.  In Happyville’s Myth # 3 about the nasty Goodyear blogger’s comments regarding Fire Chief Luizzi, the wardens in Happyville suggest that because the blogger assumed the word ‘confrontation’ would include some kind of verbal exchange before any laying on of hands took place that old blogger is a big fibber and therefore you shouldn’t believe anything he says. Logic is suspended in Happyville. More Koolaid, please.

The wardens at Happyville would have you believe that Roger Matlin just walked right up to Luizzi one night and gave him a shove.  There was no discussion or comments that led to anything further (if it did) taking place.  Or are they saying that there might have been some discussion first but it is perfectly OK after a month long police investigation with the assumed co-operation of Luizzi that Luizzi can’t remember what it was all about?  The ‘confrontation’ that is. Whatever Happyville thinks that means. You can’t have it both ways, Happyville.

I guess we’ll find out for sure when Roger sues the pants off the City of Goodyear for false arrest and harassment. Go get ‘em Roger.

The wardens then see fit to draw stick figure pictures with crude captions to poke fun at our faithful hero the blogger.

As O’Reilly often says, when the other side starts calling names, you know they’re losing the argument.  I don’t know exactly what it means when they start drawing insulting cartoons of you.  More propaganda, I guess?

Fan Forum  Opps, no fans.

Now let’s check out Happyville’s latest and greatest feature.  A Fan Forum.  What’s that?  Only one person has made a suggestion for a forum?  Poor Happyville wardens.  No one is listening to them.

Show Me The Money (lots of $$$ signs)

Now, here is a really cool part of Happyville.  Show Me The Money (with lots of $$ signs).  This section is about how to spend money in Goodyear that WE DON’T EVEN HAVE YET.  That’s right.  I’m not kidding.  I know you all can’t trust me any more so go see for yourself.  They want suggestions for where Goodyear can spend even more money it doesn’t have “when it is available”.

Goodyear employees, are you taking note of this?  You haven’t had a raise in three years and these bozos are LOOKING for places to spend money!

Earth to Happyville, we’re $300 mil in debt and with the current property valuations running 18 months behind, Goodyear may already be close to “loaned up”.

But that doesn’t bother the residents or the wardens of Happyville, because Joanne Osborne told them that we had a surplus in one of Joanne’s political presentations, YIPPEE!! (Joanne said Yippee).  Let’s talk about spending some more, it’s so much more fun than talking about living within our means.  YIPPEE again, just to make me feel good!

AND FINALLY, drum roll please…………..

Important Links to Trustworthy Easy to Use Web Sites

Happyville has seen fit to provide TEN, count ‘em TEN different links to trustworthy and completely understandable alternate websites where you can get ALL THE FACTS YOU NEED Happyville residents.  You don’t need any more bloggers to tell you anything, just go to these TEN TRUSTWORTHY SITES that really look impressive.

Oh, wait, all TEN sites are just links to the City of Goodyear website.  Never mind.

Imitation is the Sincerest Form of Flattery


Editorial comment.  Turns out Mike Williams rejects any claim to the blog being his. By the way, I can find no “Mike Williams” who lives in PCreek we I don’t know who he is.  So who is really behind the Happyville blog and why do they refuse to tell you who is writing what they want you to read?

Now there is an imitation blog in Goodyear set up by a Pebble Creek resident named Mike Williams (if that is his real name).  I have spammed Mike several times for his posts on my blog because of name calling and he has brought no facts or good arguments to add to the conversation.  Maybe that’s why he decided to start his own blog.  I’ve listed a couple of his comments at the end of this post so you can see where Mike stands on issues.

Here is a link to the new imitation blog;  http://goodyearazfactsandmyths.wordpress.com/

Mike should decorate his blog with pom poms based on all the cheer leading he does there for Georgia Lord and her insulated city council which will soon, in my opinion have not one dissenting vote.

Speaking of dissenting votes, how about the staged 4 – 2 vote on Gelzer last night?

I’d like to know a little more about Mike and what his connections are to the current Goodyear regime, so if you know Mike or know of him (if that’s his real name) why don’t you add it as a comment to this post?

Heeeerrrr’s Mike!  Mike Williams comments
