Name calling, threats, yelling—we need a “time out” chair for this bunch.
The elected Shelby Township Board of Trustees has to balance the concerns of over 70,000 residents.
What we have at the meeting lately is nasty name calling from self-entitled cry babies. "It's not our fault we don't like our situation—fix it now or I'll yell louder." It's like being around a bunch or preschoolers.
Most residents who pay attention know damned well that if the board had voted not to touch the Shelby Woods North consent judgment, the condo owners would be at the meetings whining about how the Shelby Township Board of Trustees screwed them and let their development go down the tubes.
Like with crying babies, there is no satisfying their wants, no reasoning to their whining, they whine for attention and because they have no idea how to satisfy their own needs.
The legitimate concern of a few has stirred up the whole lot of people clamoring for attention. There is no satisfactory cure for this crazy, name-calling, whiny bunch.
I, for one, believe the board has spent enough time and resources trying to sooth the colicky bunch. There is a time to just put the babies in their crib, leave the room, let them cry it out of their system and take a nap.
The group of people coming up in the meetings and attacking the board is too much. The board is very limited with its options when it comes to private land owner disputes, but that doesn’t matter to these people. Like 4-year-olds denied a treat, they don’t realize the cupboard is bare, they just want what they want, logic be damned.
Please explain to the rest of the residents how your situation will improve or worsen our (the rest of the citizens') lives.
I will ask this same question of all the controversial subjects.
How will cutting the police pensions make the residents lives worse ... it won’t, it will only bother a few who believe they are entitled.
How will making the towing contractor work under contract adversely affect the residence lives ... it won’t, it will only infuriate one family who felt entitled to charge whatever THEY felt was fair for service.
I am tired of a FEW self-entitled whiny babies trying to control the rest of us while taking money from our pockets.
When put like this, I don’t believe the sitting board members who stand their ground for the MAJORITY of citizens will have any problems in the next election.
