Manassas Park: You Don’t Need To Know

By Greg L | 25 February 2008 | Manassas Park | 18 Comments

Want to see what’s happening in the Governing Board of Manassas Park? Tough cookies. Unless you’re not interested in anything that’s happened since December, 2007, you’re out of luck.

Government subjected to the people, by the insiders, for the powerful. And just in case you might be interested to see how city officials are spending your tax dollars and wielding the awesome power that Government can bring to bear, you can’t find out what they’re doing until months afterwards. I’m sure that will be adequate to a vast majority of Manassas Park residents, who can’t even seem to get more than one person to show up for a public hearing regarding their local regulation of your rights protected under the First Amendment regarding political free speech. Sleep on, dear citizens. Your overseers will ensure the chains of bondage rest lightly and comfortably upon your arms…

If sunlight disinfects government, what does the utter midnight blackness that pervades the operations of the City of Manassas Park yield? Yep, it yields our local equivalent to Kim Jong-Il.

Because the citizens have so far allowed this to happen.

    Uh, archives are sorted in alphabetical order. September is the last record on the 2007 archive page but October, November and December records are present earlier in the listing.

    Good catch. Pretty strange way to present information, but they still have nothing up for 2008 and we’re almost into March.

    Post has been updated.

    I don’t think a less than adept web site or a lack of up to the minute publication of documents on it constitutes a conspiracy.

    Never attribute to malice, etc…

    Ah, let us now update the Axis of Evil - Iran, N. Korea, and the City of Manassas Park! Together these entitities represent TYRANNY and OPPRESSION!

    I hear Fairfax County submitted an application, but they were rejected for not being evil enough - bwa ha ha!

    In this case corrupt? Perhaps but probably not. Incompetent? Always. Still waiting for my updated tax assessments to see what kind of values they pulled out of the air. MP has been hit harder than ANY other area in NOVA for home values so I can’t wait to here Jones tell us all that MP values have held up the best.

    I’ve just been informed that due to the rampant foreclosures in my neighborhood that houses in my development are now listed for UNDER what I currently owe. Somehow in the past year home prices have dropped more than 100k after dropping 50k the year before. That means that my development has lost about 45% of its value since February ‘06. Somehow, someway a house in my development sold in October ‘07 for 313k which you can be sure is what the city will use to assess their tax bill with. So not only do I currently owe more than my house is worth (and I bought it at the bottom), but I will be paying taxes based on a value that is 100k more than what it’s worth. I will be contacting a lawyer this week to discuss my options. The mayor and the city council have run this town into the ground with their sanctuary policies and looking the other way and have destroyed me financially in the process. Thanks guys…

    I suspect that this “housing crisis” was planned. Governments at all levels are getting into buying up foreclosed upon houses, ostensibly to offer them to low income families. It’s one more way for the gummint to gain control of property, thus control the wealth, in this country.

    You are right on target. I have seen that situation happen here in my neighborhood. HUD took over a house and it was occupied (I don’t know whether it was rented or bought) and changed hands the third time to a Latino who “purchased” it. It went into default and it was bought as a HUD sale by a Latino contractor who did a fantastic job in renovating what was an eyesore. This gentleman sold (at a great profit) the house at the height of the boom and it was purchased by another Latino. That house is now up again for sale. Possibly it will end up on the auction block and everything will start over again. BUY CHEAP, SELL HIGH!

    Those rotten City of Manassas Park tyrants did not post the meeting minutes until the 22nd of February! This is tyranny! This is fascism! Martial law is forthcoming, and the tanks will be rolling through the streets any day now!

    Foreclosures in this circumstance is good actually (but woe to the person talked into a loan shark ARM loan), it cleans out the riffraff that shouldn’t be able to afford the home in the first place. The market will correct (bought only by people who can afford it using legitimate 30 year funding, and the value will slowly go back up. If you buy it on auction, remember you still have to sell it and still have to make payments or rent it (not easy to do in this market), so its a good time to buy a second home if you can afford it, or move up if you have the cash, but section 8A is a real loophole for “get rich” Real Estate investors (actually investment pools) who WILL turn the neighborhood into a slum eventually.

    One problem or boom depending on who you are: buy a house real cheap, rebuild it using shoddy materials and building techniques into a 9 bedroom single family dwelling and rent it to 16 people so you can get rich by taking advantage of the “stupid gringos” lame and ignorant zoning laws! Laugh all the way to the Mexican bank, but don’t convert to pesos yet!

    Actually, a thousand dollar investment in Mexican pesos a year ago would likely have yielded a higher return than the same amount in PWC real estate.

    The park is worse off than PWC. The park is worse off than Ohio or Michigan for that matter! Values are down about 45% here which has got to qualify this town to take the pepsi challenge with any other zipcode in the US for largest drop in real estate values. Scary stuff that my town may turn into section 8 projects with me stuck in the middle of it…

    Stop whining about the cost of gasoline and do something.

    The reason for the high cost of gasoline is the failure of our government to act in a responsible manner. The “Energy-Independence and Security-Act of 2007” requires a 35-mpg standard by 2020. Whoop de do!!! Evidently none of the people who created and signed this act did any research on available technology. To require 35-mpg is ridiculous considering the achievements of Shell Oil with modified automobiles; 49.73-mpg around 1939; 149.95-mpg with a 1947 Studebaker in 1949; 244.35-mpg with a 1959 Fiat 600 in 1968; 376.59-mpg with a 1959 Opel in 1973. If you lived in Europe, during 1983, you could purchase a 72-mpg diesel or 65.7-mpg gas fueled Peugeot. Toyota is complaining they can’t meet the mpg standard. Evidently some people at Toyota didn’t get the memo about the 104-mpg diesel sold in Europe during 2002. Do you wonder why these automobiles were not available in the USA? In 2006 every congressional member of the energy committees was informed of this technology, they did nothing. Ask you members of congress for an explanation why these automobiles were not sold here, I did, they don’t respond.

    A Philippine inventor has fueled engines with the components of water for more than 30-years, the Japanese have a water fueled mini-van on the street. This is not new technology, more than 200-years ago one of the attempts to make a self-powered vehicle was fueled with the components of water. The technology is not only applicable to automobiles, any device fueled with ”fossil” oil can be fueled with water. In January 2007, Dominion Energy sent a “doom and gloom’ letter to customers, I responded with information about commercially available water fueled electricity generators. Dominion did not respond, consider this when paying your electric bill.

    You hear, and read, of the presidential candidates expounding about our reliance on foreign oil. Yet, every candidate for president was offered a free computer disk with videos of six automobiles fueled with water, none wanted the disk. You are told there is an oil shortage. A chairman of Exxon/mobile doesn’t think so nor does the governor of Alaska. The governor says there is a 200-year oil supply for the USA in that state.

    Documentation, and videos, for the above will be found: www.byronwine.com.

    It is apparent there is an effort by our government, and major media, to keep the citizens in the dark concerning achieved energy technology. We must make all politicians, including wannabes, address the energy issue with truth and solutions, not rhetoric. DO SOMETHING don’t whine about the cost of gasoline, demand that our leaders earn their salary by action

    Another issue, investigate the privately owned Federal Reserve System.
