DID THE CITY COMMISSION COMMIT FISCAL SUICIDE?

I am running late and in way too much pain to type much, but I have a question. If Cisneros felt like he had no choice but to vote no on the wall, what does that tell us about his sense of the community on the issue?

Before I get into the next part of this, did the Commission even have permission to vote on the DHS settlement? 2/3rs of 7 is 4.6, rounded up equals 5. Did they have a 2/3rd vote to move the issue forward? I do not profess to understand any of this. Did Atkinson’s abstention mean they only needed 2/3rd of 6? How did Cisneros vote on the issue? I was just very confused - comments on this would help or insight as to how the 2/3rd’s rule works.

Back to the wall, there is no money to take down the temporary wall. There never will be money for the wall. The people will go nuts if money is allotted to building a new wall, while their roads go unrepaired. In the near future utility rates will have to go up to cover the infrastructure demands on the BPUB. BPUB rates will be going up, roads will be unrepaired, and this city commission believes they will be allowed to budget money for a wall the people oppose.

How pathetic and sad this city commission has become. I predict Longoria, Atkinson, and Troiani will all be shown walking papers by the people two years from now. This vote was fiscal suicide, and the price will be paid.

Mister Obama, take down that Brownsville Wall! There's a better way!

The age-old pesky U.S.-Mexico border problem has taxed the resources of both countries, led to long lists of injustices, and appears to be heading only for worse troubles in the future. Guess what? The border problem can never be solved. Why? Because the border IS the problem! It's time for a paradigm change.

Never fear, a satisfying, comprehensive solution is within reach: the Megamerge Dissolution Solution. Simply dissolve the border along with the failed Mexican government, and megamerge the two countries under U.S. law, with mass free 2-way migration eventually equalizing the development and opportunities permanently, with justice and without racism, and without threatening U.S. sovereignty or basic principles.

To learn how, Google "Megamerge Dissolution Solution".
