I. Greg Aymond:
Let’s get this straight: I don’t know what Greg Aymond currently does for a living. I know he had a stroke, and I believe this has been a source of suffering for him.
Like me, he is very obviously disabled, though in a completely different way.
He spends an inordinate amount of time publicly chastising people elected to represent his hometown. He believes many of them are criminals. He wants the FBI to intervene.
To me, Greg Aymond’s rants are frequently pathetic, paranoiac, absurd, and ridiculous; they are dangerously detached and often bigoted.
And perhaps this should not be surprising, considering Greg Aymond was once a member of the Ku Klux Klan and recently blogged about the “N**** Street Thugs” of Alexandria, among other things.
Knowing what I know and being fortunate enough to have a front row seat for all of this, I can report, definitively, that when it comes to the levees, Jacques Roy, the LRA, CDBG funds, and other related issues: Greg Aymond has no idea what he is talking or writing about. He’s more interested in slamming the Mayor than in reporting the facts. I’ve read everything Greg has written about the levee situation, and he is clearly and obviously disconnected and uninformed.
Rapides Parish received a waiver in order for the LRA Gustav/Ike money to be allocated for levee repairs. Greg wants to get the FBI involved. Seriously. I guess he thinks that the waiver we received is somehow a part of a grand conspiracy. Riiiight.
One more thing: To AlexCenla, my friend: DUDE, the BIGGEST “drainage” project in Central Louisiana IS levee certification. With all due respect, really?
II. Von Jennings:
Unless and until Von proves otherwise, I will continue to believe that she is personally responsible for the content posted on the website JacquesBarack dot blogspot dot com.
If Von really wants to become Mayor of Alexandria, then she would be wise to publicly and permanently distance herself from the fools who publish the website that endearingly endorses her.
Otherwise, Von Jennings is nothing more than a cowardly bigot.
And yes, I mean it: If Von Jennings refuses to reject the abject hatred posted by her most outspoken online advocates (at JacquesBarack), then Von Jennings is nothing more than a cowardly bigot.
You can’t simply get away with publicly harassing the Mayor’s pregnant wife, Von.
It is absolutely disgusting that you allowed (even if it was passive) your supporter(s) to publish her personal cell phone number, encouraging people to call her as often as possible. You sat idly by as your blogger friends posted a photograph of the Mayor’s six-year-old child, along with a fake letter your friends wrote under the child’s name.
Sick, sick, sick.
Do you honestly believe “your bloggers” are off-limits because they pretend to be anonymous, Von?
Do you think it’s appropriate to suggest that I suffer from Fetal Alcohol Syndrome? I have cerebral palsy, Von. Do you think it’s fair game to publicly defame my mother? You think it’s okay to make fun of my disability?
I call on Von Jennings to personally and publicly respond to the accusations leveled by her apparent friends at JacquesBarack.
Of course, she will never become Mayor of Alexandria, but in the meantime, Von and her friends are doing an amazing job destroying her credibility and her future.
