There is only one week left until Christmas, and many of us in Orange County will be hosting out-of-town guests in our homes very soon. And in an effort to make your holidays a little bit brighter, your friends at TheLiberalOC.com wanted to give you a small list of 4 locations that you should avoid when entertaining your visitors.
And where ever your guests came from, there is probably a Wal-Mart already there not paying employees a family-sustaining wage.
If your guests really want to shop, take them to some of the truly unique shopping opportunities in Orange County.
2. The 22 Freeway Ã¢â‚¬â€œ DonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t believe what you read in the newspapers. The 22 Freeway widening project is not done.
There are off-ramps that have yet to be openedÃ¢â‚¬â€causing detours and ultimately traffic. There are lines that have yet to be re-drawn, or remnants of old linesÃ¢â‚¬â€causing confusion and ultimately traffic. Five years ago the 22 Freeway was considered to be the ugliest of the O.C. Freeways, and that still holds up today.
Now anytime I start to complain about the progress of the 22 freeway project, OCTA supporters start reminding me that the 22 wasnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t part of the original Measure M goals, and all of this work was done by stretching pennies. Fiscal responsibility.
Well, if you want to continue to boast about the extra freeway that you improved, then you need to actually finish improving it.
3. The Anaheim Football stadium Ã¢â‚¬â€œ cause we havenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t one.
4. The City of Costa Mesa Ã¢â‚¬â€œ This doesnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t apply if your out-of-town guests are white. The City of Costa Mesa became the first city in the country to publicly state: Ã¢â‚¬Å“we arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t racist, butÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Ã¢â‚¬Â
Costa Mesa cops now have the authority to begin checking the status of peopleÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s immigration statusÃ¢â‚¬â€opening the door for deputies start racial profiling folks that appear to be Mexican.
If the guests that you are chaperoning do not look white, avoid Costa MesaÃ¢â‚¬Â¦they arenÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t welcomed there.
