obviously the solution to more violence isn't gun control but that's what they keep trying year after year.

Have dillie dillie move into the hood with all her rats and trash, wait, what? The hood is already full of rats and trash...... nevermind.

She would fit right in though!

Anonymous said...

They've been harassing Dille and using every dirty tactic in the book against her for a long time. You don't fit in go away!! Your house is not Pretty!

Perhaps she's teaching them a lesson with some big payback for being snooty
and nasty son's and daughters of bitches and all the misery they've caused her.

^^^^Perhaps. But we had one of those on our block a few years ago. It wasn't pretty. It was a 20-year battle, and members of her church, most of whom lived in Crestwood, where such a nightmare would not be tolerated for 20 minutes, did everything they could to keep her in her house (with no utilities--she took sponge baths at the library and dumped her waste in the street). What a bunch of hypocrites! Finally the city condemned the house, and it was removed.

^^^^ nah, she’s a stupid rich bitch with nothing to do and all day to piss her neighbors off. That’s one nasty broad, who the hell chooses to live like that?

She needs mental help desperately.

Westwood KCMO is becoming a crime infested shit hole like any other Midtown neighborhood these days. All those old homes are shit anyway and need to be bulldozed and replaced with big modern homes. That will fix all the problems.

Just burn the fucker down. Blame it on the jigs.
If she gets out, fine. If she don't, fine too. Then she will be a roasted nut on the open fire for the holiday season. And her fucking rats can eat bar-b-que'd old douchebag.

As someone who lives in a 1920s home built by Dible, I can tell you many old homes are better than many new ones.

So, bribery, extortion, and obstruction are now just unsavory. Interesting.
