Why are there special parking rules just because it's a Jew holiday? Whatever happened to the wall separating the religion industry and the State?
Lindagale Terry October 07, 2011 at 04:56 PM
WHAT THE HELL? THIS DOESN'T AT ALL SEEM FAIR, AS THE RULES SHOULD APPLY TO EVERYONE, AND NO GROUP SHOULD BE SHOWN FAVOR OVER ANOTHER! WHILE I DON'T THINK THEY SHOULD RECEIVE HARSH TREATMENT, NEITHER SHOULD THEY BE SHOWN FAVORITISM!! THAT JUST ISN'T FAIR TO THE REST OF THE COMMUNITY! WHAT THE HELL?

Dear Geniuses, The City of West Hollywood also doesn't enforce parking permit rules on Christmas: http://www.weho.org/index.aspx?recordid=536&page=23 Change your diapers and go on with your day.

Wanna bet that if there were Muslims living in West Hollywood and they had a religious holiday,the City of West Hollywood would not relax parking restrictions.Muslims just the Jew are minorities,but the Jew gets preferential treatment.

"The Jew gets preferential treatment." Dictating your prison memoirs?
John October 07, 2011 at 09:45 PM
Great point, Mr. Bray. Man, you sound really cool and amazing. You must be one of the only smart people living in LA. BTW: Could you reccomended a "Mangina Clinic" for David and L. Terry?
John October 07, 2011 at 09:47 PM
Lindagale, So sorry about your aching mangina -- oh, btw: we found your bottle of warm apple juice. It was stuck in your diaper, close to your mangina.
John October 07, 2011 at 09:50 PM
Dear David, Please check your mangina -- it appears to be swollen and all puffed-up for no reason. I wonder if you're expereincing early menopause???
Tim October 07, 2011 at 10:54 PM
Way to go, David. I'll bet there are a bunch of really cool Muslims who are overjoyed to have you bring their faith into an argument against Jews getting "preferential treatment."
