  1. If so, that means you are doing a great job. But since this is just a personal blog, people should remember it is yours and you can do whatever you want with it…. That being said most liberals / democrats swear by “free speech” only when you agree with them…. I am assuming it would be the current “powers that be” that have any issue with you and your blog….

  2. I came here to say almost the same thing. You’re making some people nervous, which means you’re doing a great job. Keep it up!

  3. Anthony..Your blog is a wonderful forum for all of us to listen/share our opinions.It functions as a conduit for all of the Long Beach community..,ie.to be aware of what is happening here…positive and negative.If some individuals are “nervous”..to bad.”The truth shall set us free” Bravo!

  4. Anthony,,,,This blog is excellent! It is a wonderful forum for every one to share ideas and get educated regarding every facet of our community.Education gives us power.This is a great conduit for exchanging information effecting all of us.Personally, I have only heard “laude” comments from others who participate and read your site.Keep up the good work that you do for all of us.

  5. I must say that I love to read your post every day, being I use my real name and do not have to hide I guess after you take personal attack from people you just want to say good by.
    I for one will miss reading your blog but do understand your position, if you take a break I just wanted you to know that I do enjoy reading the position of LB people both good and bad.
    wishing you only the best to you and our great city, as good or bad as people feel

  6. You better watch out Anthony. Remember what happened to Jim Hennessey when his blog got super popular and he was posting incredibly crazy and true (backed up wirth documents) information. The city had AOL/Huffington Post force Hennessey off the LB Patch, which is owned by AOL/Huffinton Post. It’s pretty crazy what this administration will do to stop any criticism. When you were the city’s and the dems “friend” and you posted critical posts against the LBGOP that was just fine. But once you began criticizing the dems and the current administration, you have become the enemy. Watch out or you will be extinct like Hennessey. This adminitsration makes all previous administrations look like boy scouts! Good luck and don’t give up. Hennessey didn’t give up until they literally shut him down from the backdoor! We need you like we needed Hennessey. You both serve a function in our city and democracy whether the administration likes it or not. I agree with everyone above- you’re doing something right! keep it up until they shut you down. Which will happen in the late summer, just before the election, just like what happened to Hennessey.

  7. Anthony, Please Don’t Go!!!!!!!

    This is the last place where anyone can actually discuss issues in this city. While yes it does sometimes devolve into chaos and personal swipes that’s what happens sometimes in debates. It is the last place where you can say something negative about or challenge anything in our city and not be blocked as they don’t control it.

    You are the last outpost of freedom of speech in LB!

  8. You seriously need to stay, although I understand that you need a break because people are bashing you. Your intents have been nothing but good, and you throw things out there, the shenanigans going on in this City, and attempting to find out FACTS, make people think, and encourage all of us to perhaps come up with a solution to make things better in this City, although its like banging our heads against the wall, since the politicians seem to have their own agenda, and blatantly disregard the REAL issues, have turned their heads on whats really still going on here since the hurricane, after so many empty promises…. SO many people, still not being able to return to their homes… The sad empty lots……. Homes half built, people ran out of $$$$$. Their priorities are skewed, they just love the photo ops, oh everything is great here, well its not. So many people have a long way to go.

  9. The powers that be obviously would be very uncomfortable with this blog because it points out the many deficiencies and failures of government here.
    It’s the only place where there is free wheeling , robust discussion from interested citizens of issues of concern.
    Rest up Anthony and don’t let the bastards grind you down.
    Hurry back!

  10. Don’t stick your neck out – to be honest, Long Beach isn’t worth it, at least as represented by a majority of voters here. There is no saving LB politically, you can forget that, there isn’t going to be any kind of political tidal wave to turn it around here, so why stick your neck out and possibly be the target of some retribution.

  11. Yep Sam you’re right, everyone sit home and don’t worry about LB, the dems are doing an awesome job! No need to come to the polls this September for the Primary or November for the election. They will take care of you. And by take care of you I mean take all your money and raise your taxes while they take out millions in bonds and make deals for their contributors. And don’t worry once iStar is here that little bit of space you had on the beach will be GONE cause there will be 1000-2000 more people on the beach. Yep, keep these guys in they care about LB. NOT!!!

  13. Annisa more did not just say, “Historically, we haven’t had anyone of African-American descent on the council”! So she is running on the Obama platform? Vote for me or you’re a racist?

  14. Seriously question, do you REALLY believe this tiny ass town and its inept politicians have the power to influence one of the largest media companies?
