Chris Prevatt already blogged about the Wal-Mart walk that will take place this Saturday from 10-2pm in Garden Grove. Read ChrisÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ post here.
And I really hate to be the pessimistic person on this topic, but I have a very strong feeling that the Wal-Mart Super Center protests are futile.
The newly appointed Garden Grove City Councilman and what some are calling the tie-breaking vote on the Super Center, Steve Jones, has ties with the Van Tran group. (I refuse to call them Ã¢â‚¬Å“TranniesÃ¢â‚¬Â like others bloggers have referred to the Van Tran puppets. I think that Ã¢â‚¬Å“TrannieÃ¢â‚¬Â is a deprecating name for transvestites, and I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think that itÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s appropriate.)
Jones may pussyfoot around the issue publicly with his Ã¢â‚¬Å“I have not made up my mindÃ¢â‚¬Â bull, but take a look at his voting record on the Garden Grove Planning Commission. And then tell me that Van Tran pulled strings to get Jones appointed, and heÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not expecting a vote or two.
The picture in this post only cements my belief that Jones is embedded with the Van Tran gang. The photos, which ran in a Vietnamese newspaper when the Trung Nguyen for Supervisor campaign was calling Paul Lucas a racist, shows Trung Nguyen and Van Tran working in the foreground, and Steve Jones working in the back left corner.
The photo is hardly proof that Jones will be a Wal-Mart supporter, but it isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t too tough to connect the dots.
