    Lot of us complain but SLBD believes their rules do not give them teeth..Goel Services located in MD with an empty trailer as an office in DC gets Millions of dollars as CBE. They were once almost disbarred but their CBE certificate expired..No problem ..Next year they got certified and this time in 50 more line items..Go figure!
    SLBD is supposed to recieve $100,000 fine from each of these fake CBE's but Office Of Attorney General is not interested and SLBD does not persue..So you have live culture of corruption..But CBE is a good thing for the city and these thieves are not..so do not throw the baby with the bath water!

    YEAH OKAY MYSTERY DONORS??
    MYSTERY DONORS ARE CODE FOR RICH WHITE MEN TRYING TO GET RICHER BY GETTING CLOSE TO THE CITY COFFERS. THE CITY IS BOOMING RIGHT NOW AND THE REST OF THE COUNTRY IS BROKE SO WATCH ALL THE OUTSIDE INTERESTS CONNECTING WITH FAKE ASS REDUMBLICAN PUPPETS LIKE MARA WHO WANNA FULFILL THEIR LIL' QUESTS!

    YOU HAVE TO REALLY LOVE THE PICTURE OF THE WHITE MAN HELPING OUT THE LITTLE BLACK GIRL. WOW!!! LIKE ALL THE BLACK FOLK IS GONNA COME RUNNING TO THIS CLOWN BECAUSE OF IMAGE. THIS IS REPUBLICAN CAMPAIGNING 101! THIS IS NOTHING BUT A MODERN DAY TARZAN PORTRAYAL EXCEPT HE HAS A JOHN BY HIS SIDE INSTEAD OF A JANE.

    IF YOU CAME OUT THE CLOSET ONE TIME THEN THE SECOND TIME SHOULDN'T BE AS DIFFICULT PATRICK MARA. THIS WHOLE "I'M HERE TO HELP YOU BLACK FOLK WHO HAVE BEEN BAMBOOZLED BY YOUR OWN PEOPLE" SUBLIMINAL MESSAGE WILL NOT GET OFF THE GROUND. NO MATTER HOW MANY TIMES YOU SAY IT OR PUT IT YOUR MESSAGING. WE HAVE A WAY OF KNOWING THAT YOU ARE HERE ONLY FOR YOUR OWN SELFISH GAIN.

    SLIM THIS CITY IS BIGGER THAN GALLERY PLACE, DUPONT CIRCLE & ADAMS MORGAN BUT YOUR BLIND AMBITION WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO SEE IT.

    Definitely think Cathy Lanier should sit down with the club owners and some of the police force and come up with a better solution for guarding and making sure people are safe at these nightclubs. Whether they toughen the dress codes or set up an ID system that would link partygoers to a Club & Nightlife database, therefore they can easily identify those who cause problems at their establishment, they need to think of smarter ideas to allow people to have safe fun rather than employ and pay cops to sit around and do nothing...

    @Noddlez,

    The word on the street is that Patrick Mara has been inviting some of our young "impressionable" brothers from across the bridge to his house to drink German imported beer. Apparently, he's trying to win their support. And some of those clowns living in the hood have drunk the cool-aid.

    These are some of the same clowns who will condemn black politicians but will give an ear to an anti-Obama republican candidate or some guy who promises them weed.

    This foolishness is absolutely embarrassing.

  • noodlez

    @TONY-AGREED!

    THEY ARE OBVIOUSLY CLOWNS BECAUSE HEINEKEN'S ARE PLAYED AND
    NO ONE DRINKS IMPORTED GERMAN BEER ANY LONGER EXCEPT PERPETRATING BUD DRINKERS.

    I WOULD BE CONCERNED IF THEY WERE DRINKING 3 STARS, DC BRAU OR CHOCOLATE CITY!

    Why wouldn't Mara invite brothas EOTR to his house to drink German or any other beer? Is that not part of the outreach we would hope all politicians engage? He SHOULD be trying to win their support and if he gets it, good for him.

    And why SHOULD our like/dislike of a politician be linked to whether they support the current president of the united states of america? IMO, that's some foolishness right there.

    @SE-1ST WHEN DOING OUTREACH 'CROSS THE RIVER THAT IS WHERE IT SHOULD BE DONE. ACROSS THE DAMN RIVER NOT BACK AT HIS LOVE PAD IN WARD 1, 2 OR WHEREEVA THE NEW HOOD FOR GAY COUPLES ARE NOW.

    GETTING BROTHAS LIQUORED UP TO MAKE BAD DECISIONS?
    THAT IS SOME TROJAN HORSESHIT RIGHT THERE!

    THE FOOLISHNESS COMES IN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE LEADER OF THIS COUNTRY WHO REPRESENTS FOLK EAST OF THE RIVER AND THE REDUMBLICAN WHO REPRESENTS FOLK WEST OF 16TH ST NW.
