Civic Masturbation...what is it? REDACTED TO REMOVE LANGUAGE OFFENSIVE TO NANCY HOFFMANN'S and TRAUMATIZING TO READERS (so I can stay on the DGI board)

Even though "no one reads my little blog" ( paraphrasing Nancy Hoffmann ), I do occasionally receive inquiries about various posts... Ironically, most of them pertain to Ms. Hoffmann 's deceptive ways or Roy Carroll's unprecedented influence.

This time, a few individuals seemed intrigued by my recent use of the term "Civic Masturbation".

--- I understand, as I was equally scarred when Zack Matheny commented  "...it's time to pull back the Kimono..." during the debate following George Hartzman's questioning of Ms Hoffmann's ethics or lack thereof.

The way I see it..Civic Masturbation is a lazy, resentful attempt at premeditated pleasure, shamelessly choreographed by some of our finest. 
The truth is that their vanity convinced them long ago that WE exist only to satisfy them... So we get a tasteless dinner at Applebee's paired with a couple furious strokes, while they get the Tantric Suite at The Proximity Hotel.  In the morning,we are left unsatisfied and longing for the real thing.

Our local economic development practices and recent incentive record best illustrate this concept...
Endless Charrettes, ED Committees, Public Hearings, Expensive Studies and Pointless Discussions, all served as formalities to be checked off before the we get jacked off...


Greensboro often uses the term incentive loosely and as of lately; irresponsibly. 

I support  the fact that genuine economic development incentives can actually  benefit our community and facilitate the desired outcome when properly administered... 
Real jobs, with real economic impact , with real social benefits.

Until then, I remain partial to a proper fucking which seems to be what we get in the end anyway.
