I took a look last time you posted a similar topic and comparison.

Very different topics and much more civilized discussions for sure!

What is driving the Pleasanton insanity and infighting?

The only thing I can figure is that Pleasanton is much more conservative and the conservatives seem to be loosing their minds.

The P-Town Weekly is full of anger, finger pointing, blaming, name calling and just flat out radical propaganda and insulting messages from both sides of the spectrum.

Phil,


Please move to SF or Bezerkley. We are sick of left-wing loons moving to Pleasanton. Loons need to be in SF or Bezerkley, so they don't screw up other places. These two cities are basically looney bins, and loons need to be confined there, because as the rest of us know, LIBERALISM IS A MENTAL DISORDER.


Report Objectionable Content






Phil,






You win the ultimate Pleasanton Jacka$$ award for sure!




If I was a prospective resident looking for a place to raise my family and I stumbled upon the Pleasanton Weekly Forum, I would NOT consider Pleasanton to be a good place to raise my children.




It's the small minority of super radical mentally unstable folks like YOU, who ruin things for the same cause you hold so dear.

Small minority?




Watch how small it is when we wipe out the Democrats for good in all the next elections and it stays that way now that your social justice experiment is out for the world to see.




People may be dumb, but they aren't stupid!




That's reserved for liberal nut cases like you.

UNCIVIL??? YOU BET! When our freedom is being taken away by the Obama Administration...including our own "Representative" Jerry McNerney...you bet I am MAD!

Yes, I will voice my complaint and fight for liberty while being lawful (UNLIKE LEFTISTS). However, take away our freedom like they are doing and you've awaken a sleeping giant in many Pleasanton residents.

Well there you have it, the Pleasantonian logic!

The people in most other communities that are angry as as result of the Boggie Man Fear Mongering, discuss their concerns in a civilized manner!

There are plenty of decent people in Pleasanton, liberal AND conservative - they just don't waste their time on these boards responding to idiotic conspiracy posts by sore loser right-wingers. Go ahead, you scary sleeping giants - post away! The rest of us will actually be out there participating in our democracy.
