Town Square

Post a New Topic


Original post made by Main Street & Main Stream, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Nov 24, 2010

As 2010 comes to a close, I sit back and reflect on the roller coaster ride this year has given us. Yes, the Forum members have indeed vocalized their views in an assortment of manners, all condoned by our great First Amendment Right of Free Speech. There are times during the year I have gotten so upset with the Forum I could and did scream. Then there were times when I learned a lot about how to protect yourself, the inside scope on local issues and some scuttlebutt about random gossip that was pure fun. Anyway, I thought I would say Happy Thanksgiving to all the Forum Members who made up the sometimes psychedelic ride through Pleasanton news possible. Push comes to shove, we are the luckiest people on the planet to live in such a great town.

Yes, we are fortunate to live where we do & enjoy the many activities this city has to offer. We also for the most part can feel safe & our schools are doing the best they can do with what they have. We have been through a very interesting year with elections, disaster in various parts of the world, but things seem to be looking better. We must continue to not look upon our country with Doom and Gloom. The same applies to our city and our leaders both locally and nationally. Regardless of who wins an election, I was bothered by some the disrespect I saw around town & feel that is not in everyone's best interest to show such disrespect, especially for the President of the United States, which some resorted to cruel depictions of him. All I can say is move on folks, get a life.
