Farmer Braley's Fowl Legal Threats

Bruce Braley Suing Neighbor over Chickens


"Braley’s legal problem started this spring when a chicken crossed his property line. Braley’s wife Carolyn attended a May 8 meeting of the Holiday Lake Owner’s Association to complain about the fowl. The dispute escalated, causing the association to incur nearly $1,700 in legal fees after Braley called the association’s attorney with an implied threat of legal action."

Why did the chicken cross the road?

So Bruce Braley could threaten legal action.

Bruce Braley's disdain for those who earn a living working the land is costing him political support. A dispute about a chicken straying on to Braley's lake front property cost a property owners association $1,700.

“It’s stupid that it went this far. Any reasonable person would have talked to their neighbor in a reasonable fashion instead,” said Bill Nagle, an association board member. “For being brought up on a farm, he sure has lost his rural, farm values.”

Past President of the Iowa Trial Lawyers Association Bruce Braley's roots are firmly planted in profit from litigation, not agriculture. Voters should pull U. S. Senator from Iowa wannabe Bruce Braleys political aspirations up by the roots this fall.

Councilman Tim Scott Needs to Step Aside - Needs Anger Management Intervention

Belligerent, Bellicose Bully Tim Scott Assaults Councilwoman

Newspaper Turns Blind Eye


I watched Monday night’s council meeting and am at a loss as to why Tim Scott was not arrested for assaulting Councilwoman Becky Anderson.

Scott was ranting and raving about the local criminal element shooting bottle rockets at a gasoline tank truck, and later the cops, while the tanker was unloading gas at Circle K on Maple Street.

Outraged, Scott stood up and tossed a handful of papers striking councilwoman Becky Anderson in her face while screaming and spitting mad-dog slobbers on her face. It seems to me Scott should have been arrested right on the spot given a police officer was present to witness Scott’s action.

It appears since Scott sucks up the crap on South Main, Delaney’s minion, writer Sloan, has been called off along with the police department.

Several people have said the rant didn’t stop in council chambers but continued in the back room when Scott uttered the ‘N’ word in front of Mayor Shane McCampbell.

Scott has a proclivity for violence. Years ago Scott assaulted a citizen at the Port of Burlington and used his position to avoid any real prosecution. People say Scott’s outburst is the 3rd such outburst this year. And it’s only July. No rational person would ever attend a council meeting to throw objects at a council member or spit on them and not expect to be arrested.

Why is the belligerent, bellicose bully Tim Scott any different?

Maybe some of your readers saw this and have an opinion. Scott has good reason to be outraged about attempted murder by bottle rocket. This is not a 4th of July prank. Had a bottle rocket made good on its target, Burlington would have a new Mosquito Park where Maple Street once stood and Walgreen's would be covered in 30' of dirt.

Obviously, the newspaper could care less when a city council member commits a criminal act to which the newspaper is an eyewitness. I guess Scott’s overt criminal act isn’t as tawdry as spreading innuendo and lies about council members for weeks on end. Or maybe facts never outweigh innuendo when selling newspapers.

This smacks of our ex-drunk mayor’s sleepover in the Burger King parking lot. Or, Delaney’s encounter with a dancing utility pole on Sunnyside. Blind eye cronyism.

Any way you cut it, Tim Scott should step down. The taxpayers have had enough belligerent, bellicose bullies in recent history occupy the council and city manager chairs. We can’t afford this kind of behavior. And the city doesn’t need the unfunded liability when this turd comes home to roost.

And while we’re at it, what’s up with Bob Fleming? He always appears on the TV to be in the bag. He never says anything relevant and has that glazed over look. The taxpayers don't need any more elected representation in the bag.

Clyde Barrows of Burlington Beware!


Burlington, Iowa is looking into an ordinance to make it illegal to openly carry a toy gun or conceal one with clothes.”

Playing Sargent York in their front yard could land a ten year old in the stockade. Kids playing “Pirates of the Caribbean” with squirt guns on a hot afternoon could end up walking the plank.

For more than a 180 years kids have played with toy guns in Burlington. Nobody thought anything of it. A crime wave has descended upon Burlington in recent years and we are told not playing with toys is a solution.

Kids playing with toy guns are not the problem. Our local fools in power who have fawned over and imported criminals are the problem.

The City of Burlington’s proposed toy gun ordinance punishing kids at play is no solution. Punishing violent criminals and removing from power those who promote them is.

Impeach Braley


"David Kochel, an Iowa GOP strategist and Ernst backer, told The Des Moines Register: "It's hilarious watching Democrats hyperventilate about Joni Ernst answering hypothetical questions about impeachment, when the fact is, Bruce Braley voted to proceed with impeachment articles against Dick Cheney."

President Obama's actions equate to the beatification of Richard Nixon. Abuse of power by our current president has caused stirrings for his impeachment and conviction.

Congressman Bruce Braley has some experience when it comes to impeachment proceedings in the House. Braley has not applied his House experience and legal expertise as former leader of the Iowa Trial Lawyers Association to impeaching President Obama.

Braley should be removed from office. Not by sending wannabe U. S. Senator Braley on a hunting trip with former Vice President Dick Cheney, but by voting him out in November.

Farmer Braley

Another Buffoon Drops The Plow


U. S. Senate candidate and former head of the Iowa Trial Lawyers Association Bruce Braley is getting more dirt on his face than under his finger nails.

Gathering money before a gathering of brother Texas trial lawyers, Braley declared Iowa Senator Chuck Grassley unfit to chair the Senate Judiciary Committee. Why? Because Grassley is a farmer who never went to law school.

At an Independence Day parade in Iowa Falls, Bruce Braley claimed he is a farmer. Braley was not asleep in law school. Braley knows lying in a political campaign is not perjury.

On election day, a jury of Braley's Iowa peers should convict him. Voters should sentence Bruce Braley to leave Congress and return to the real world.
