Sparky

These inverting companies don't get high "buddy ratings". These companies would probably convert to Islam if it would save or make them money.
That said, overtaxing is not the solution. I wonder what will happen if a conservative government takes power in a couple of years? Not much really seems to get accomplished no matter which party holds the Oval office.

George Rebane

Sparky 1107am - and then again, if imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, you can bet the farm that EVERY profitable corporation with worldwide sales will want to headquarter elsewhere if they're American, and will not even consider headquartering in the US if they're foreign with significant sales in the American market.

Gregory

"Not much really seems to get accomplished no matter which party holds the Oval office."

Lots can happen when the same party occupies the Oval Orifice and dominates both houses of Congress. Sometimes, like Obamacare and the Great Society, it's bad things that happen.

Bonnie McGuire

How we got to this condition in America is pretty simple. If you've ever trapped animals even the smartest can be caught with the right bait. Some ways are downright violent and fast....like a rat or mouse trap baited with a piece of a Snickers candy bar. Or you can use a cage trap with whatever bait is desired. If you don't know just put some food outside the cage until the habit is developed. Then put it inside the cage trap. The addict will be trapped.

George, you've pretty much described the human aspect of falling for the trap. Dependance on government handouts redistributing the wealth from producers to itself to become all powerful deciding who gets what. The terrible immigration fiasco was planned. No sane government would tolerate it. It's not about compassion, it's about planned confusion, economic destruction, and constant war within. The funny part is that there is no so- called home security with this regime. It's all smoke and mirrors. How many times have we heard "it's for the children" by those fleecing taxpayers for their personal gain. Now we're told these children made it to and across our border on their own? Something's fishy in D.C. If our nation has to borrow money to stay afloat...and our cities are already strapped and unable to deal with their growing numbers of poor, unemployed homeless people...why would our regime bring in thousands more, unless to bring us to our knees. Sorry to get carried away, but it's depressing to realize what's happening. If you've ever been poor you remember that it's hard to give time and money to charity. America used to be a place where the little nobody could realize his/her dreams. Now there are too many regulations, taxes and fees to feed the aristocracy in charge of redistribution.

Todd Juvinall

Doug LaMalfa called me from DC last night. He will be in town in August.

Scott Obermuller

"Not much really seems to get accomplished no matter which party holds the Oval office."
We'll assume you mean the 2 dominant parties. There are others. The odds of the Greens or some flavor of Tea Party gaining actual power in DC to pass and sign into law legislation promised by these outliers is somewhere between slim and none with the odds going heavily on none.
But - there would be changes.
There is so much power and money concentrated in DC, that there is little for the average folk to do anything about it. The IRS is now weaponized to bring down any who would threaten the status quo. And a willing news media that regurgitates outright lies and assures the average person that the powers that be always know best. The smarties on the left that claim they are willing to think for themselves and follow the facts are laughable. Witness the outcry from the left concerning the Hobby Lobby case. I haven't heard one single lefty that even has a clue what the case is about or what the outcome means to the average citizen. Every lefty simply listens to Nancy Pelosi's lies and falls right into line. Even more laughable is the nut case notion that politicians would be ever so honest if only the govt was in charge of handing out campaign funds. True conservatives and libertarians are the only independent thinking folks (as a group) left in this country.
And they are regularly savaged as racists or worse to avoid having to actually deal with the issues they bring up.
The power base in DC and most statehouses depend on promising ever more free goodies to the proles. These goodies are always held out as 'rights'. More and more money has to be forcibly transferred from producers to takers. At this point, though, it's not nearly enough and the fed govt is busily engaged in borrowing and money printing to try to make the nut. The nut, of course, moves ever further away into infinity as the govt races to catch up. This has all been tried before numerous times in history and it never ends well.

Bill Tozer

Here is my take. In 1953 the Marxists knew they could never win running as a 3rd party in America. They chose to enter and infiltrate the Democrat party back then because the Democrat Party had Caucasus in the primaries while the Republican Party did not. It took the Marxists awhile but through hard effort they eventually took over the Democrat Party local, state and national leadership roles and chaired the committees of power.

now they have their sights on the Repulican Party and are starting to make inroads, albeit the Rhinos are being thwarted by the Tea Party at the local committee and chairmanship levels.

You can take the entire list of Dr. Rebane's excellent post above and instead of using the word "liberal", substitute liberal for the more accurate word "Marxist".

Scott Obermuller

Elizabeth (high-cheek-boned) Warren has chimed in with her contributions to your post, George.
http://www.nationaljournal.com/politics/elizabeth-warren-s-11-commandments-of-progressivism-20140718
Number 11 nails the typical lefty response to the Hobby Lobby decision.
"that women have a right to their bodies."
The H.L. decision doesn't have anything to do with any decision any woman makes about 'her body'. Also notice that only women have this 'right'. This same simpleton has no trouble fabricating all manner of laws that do, in fact, remove from women decisions that concern their bodies. You can bet she will never debate any of these 11 points in a public forum.

Bonnie McGuire

I'm sorry there are so many people who don't realize they're in charge of their body, their choices they make and if they don't like the way it turns out they can also change. The crippling mentality is thinking our body, our choices should be someone else's responsibility. It's disgusting....and where will this wind up? Probably like China's birth control solution.

Scott Obermuller

Bonnie has hit on a key marker concerning theories of governance. If it is my body and my choice, what business is it of the government to decide how I will spend my efforts with same body and what financial recompence I should receive for those efforts? How does prostitution play out in a socialist system? Does an old and ugly street walker deserve a 'living wage' if she hangs out on a street corner for 40 hrs a week? If the government can force me to wear a helmet while operating certain types of motor vehicles due to 'social costs', then obviously control of 'my body' is the total concern of the government. What we eat and how fit we are constitutes a much greater 'social cost' to society. Ah, but these are facts and feftys don't like facts when talking about the govt. It's all about hysterical shrieking and gaining power. Being responsible for making decisions about our bodies leads to the obvious conclusion that we are then responsible for the outcomes of such decisions. Here is where the left's ship takes sail and departs from reality. The left has a firm belief in 'a woman's right to chose' but also that society (your money and mine) has the responsibility of picking up the tab for the consequences. It is this dichotomy of reason that I can not follow.

Bill Tozer

I certainly do not want to rile up the womanfolk.

Joe Koyote

Just a passing shot of what could be many if I had the desire or the time of which I have neither to devote to this endeavor….. Picked at random..

8. The government and the country are one. If you criticize and oppose government, then you are not a loyal American and subject to sanction.

Very True-- just recall how those who opposed the war in Iraq (or VietNam) were treated by "patriotic Americans"-- America, love it or leave it all over again. Oh yeah, in case you forgot.. the Iraq war was started by neo-conservative oil goons who lied through their teeth and caused the deaths of tens of thousands (hundreds of thousands by independent non-American counts) of people, the total destruction of a sovereign nation, and a ten-fold increase in global terrorism. Perhaps if you changed your heading to "conservative logic-- devoid of reality and always subservient to monied interests" your assessment might be a more accurate depiction of political discourse in America today. Have a nice weekend.

Todd Juvinall

Holy crap! You mean I can get money JoeK? You mean my philosophy and way of life are only mine because the rich guys pay me off? Wow! I never knew. What a chump I and all the other conservatives I know are. Thanks so much for telling me and the rest. I'll run right down and ask the Koch Brothers for my payoff.

We don't have a brain eh JoeK? Too funny. Regarding Iraq, all your favorite libs except a few, voted for it. They all believes the intelligence reports as well as other foreign allies. But you know that and refuse to give that any credence. So who is set in their ways? You apparently.

Vietnam was your war JoeK. Your ilk started it and it took a Republican to end it. America was in it because of the treaty obligations we had with the South and SEATO. But libs break the treaties don't they? No guts to follow through with their obligations. The gutless liberals and now the democrats are pathetic wimp asses who will probably feel right at home speaking Russian or Chinese. America, love it or leave it. As right today as it was then.

Scott Obermuller

Joe chimes in with his usual mess of pottage.
"the Iraq war was started by neo-conservative oil goons who lied through their teeth"
Wow - would you care to list these 'neo-conservative oil goons'?
Well, of course you wouldn't - there are way too many libs and Democrats on that list. And who opposed the war? There were many libertarians and conservatives, but Joe doesn't want to talk about that because he needs only certain facts to fit his pre-conceived notions.
"subservient to monied interests"
Gee Joe - how many times have you toadied up to Soros and Company? Didn't get your money? Oh - too bad. Apparently he can have you and your ilk for free. You really should hold out for a cut of the left wing pie. There's trillions in it for the connected ones.

Bill Tozer

Panty hose Joe K says "just recall how those who opposed the war in Iraq (or VietNam) were treated by "patriotic Americans"-- America, love it or leave it all over again. Oh yeah, in case you forgot."

Hey, you puke bucket magot. I remember just how your ilk treated Nam vets coming home by "patriotic Americans" scrots like you. You are a friggin pussy. Come on pussy, call me baby killer to my face. Come on shit for brains, spit on me now. Oh yeah, in case YOU forgot.

Bill Tozer

Equality can always be increased without dismissing liberty ( point 16). Now that is good for a morning chuckle. Won't bother throwing out the usual quotes from Ben Franklin to Dwight E. Eisenhower. Falls on dead ears, albeit 100% true today as it was 5,000 years ago. The Marxist liberals haven't a clue.

Somewhere in the liberal logic Israel is the bad guy and the post-PLO Hamas is the hero riding in to town with the white hat and white stallion to save the day. Go figure. Makes sense to somebody out there in the Liberal Brain Freeze Zone, but I digress.

Political Correctness does not increase equality but it sure negatively impacts liberty. Same with seizing from one who earned and passing it out to those who do not earn makes neither more equal, be it morally or monetarily, but it sure impacts the one who has the fruit of her labor confiscated less free. In fact, the receiver becomes a slave to the earner. The Marist Liberal though process is if misery loves company, then all should be equally miserable.

Bill Tozer

Mr. Fish.....good, yet sad link. No doubt this administration just single handily torpedoed any Democrat promised immigration reform for awhile, maybe a few years. Blame Bush, blame them Wiley Republicans. Republican ends with "i can" as in yes we can, hope and change, the check is in the mail and the Mercedes is in the shop.

This sleazy administration ( as well as the Marxist Progressives) still don't get it. They claim we don't have an illegal alien crisis, we have a "humanitarian" crisis. And they know exactly how to handle a humanitarian crisis. More pencil pushers, more money to blanket and obscure the problem with, and why not use The Border Patrol to make the kiddies sandwiches and wash the little ones' clothes since we don't have an immigration crisis, the border is secure, and The Border Patrol needs something to do now that the border issues are a thing of the past.


As far as Dr. Rebanes post, item #3 is too sweet. Another good one. At least Obama and Putin are on the same page. They don't do transparency and they don't do investigations.

Bill Tozer

Now a tiny helpful suggestion for our brethren across the aisle stuck in The Brain Freeze Zone. No, it's not to keep up the race baiting strategy, although that works fine. More of a concrete solution to their sundry problems.

Keen Observer

Dr. Rebane, as spectacularly accurate as your list was, your are omitting the liberals' inability to correctly prioritize issues that affect the American people. I am flabbergasted that amidst the many current crises facing America, our leader chooses to allocate his time and resources towards pressing Congress into promoting jobsite equality for the LGBT community. Now, mind you, workplace equality is of importance, but one couldn't help but think that perhaps this could hold off for more important pressing matters. But alas, there are more voters to be added to the ranks through empty rhetoric that is so grossly put on display by all major news outlets, and the fundraising bus was just gassed up for another cross-country tour. Say what you want about GB Jr., but at least he was reading to school children when a crisis occurred (9/11), rather than BHO being on the road grabbing cash from 1%ers, all while spewing the evils of income equality and completely ignoring the hole in the side of the Titanic.

Nevermind the fact that a world power may be behind the downing of a commercial airliner, another brazen move by a powerful dictator whom has completely defied the wishes of both the USA and the EU. In strength, Russia is no Iraq. How much longer until Putin decides to go for another land grab and annex in a few more territories? Think he is scared off by Obama, or by a possible future Hillary Clinton?

And don't even get me started on our border...what is the purpose of even having one at this point? At this juncture, I am wholeheartedly convinced that Progressives believe that with the right (and obscenely high) amount of money, any problem can be solved through the "helping and efficient" hand of government. This country truly is one generation away from becoming a repeat of Lenin's Russia, any deniers of this are the "frogs in the pot of water."

Keen Observer

Meanwhile, Gov. Rick Perry decides to actually do something about the situation:

http://www.cnn.com/2014/07/21/politics/perry-national-guard-border/

One can't help but notice the difference here in approach. The Team Obama solution is to utilize a huge sum of taxpayer dollars from the slush fund to provide social services to an unending tide of illegal immigrants. By providing these free services, surely (note the sarcasm here) this type of kind treatment would discourage future waves of unchecked immigration. The Mexican Drug Lords applaud in the background, as their coyote operations become more profitable and more channels for drug smuggling become available. With our border essentially wide open, now is the time to move some gang members/henchmen across the border to help strengthen the smuggling line.

Rick Perry, recognizing the dangers posed by unchecked immigration, has wisely decided to double down and request assistance, in what will surely be a valiant, but unsuccessful (no help from Washington) effort to protect his constituents.

How much longer until Al-Qaida (or an equivalent) wises up to the hole in the fence and decides to send in some operatives into the US via Mexico? While Washington and State Governments devise new ways to confiscate and limit the firearms of law-abiding CITIZENS, they have no problem letting lawless gang members flow in from our Southern border. Is there no end to the hypocrisy?

Keen Observer, sing it loud and sing it proud. I am too upset to barely post on the issues that got you riled up. It is the most appalling sad chapter in our county's long history that my eyes have personally witnessed. And these eyeballs have seen some hanky panky that no lovable teddy bear ought ever see. I am most concerned, alarmed, saddened, and downright spun out by these developments.

Me thinks Dr. Rebate is on temporary leave, but he will enjoy your passionate comments. I believe he is on holiday because he has not admonished me lately. Very odd but we are witnessing very odd times.

Good sighting on that article Aquaman. But if rapists, thieves, or MS-13 gangbangers are willing to vote Democrat, all of their minor character flaws should be overlooked to ensure that the proper agenda can be properly pushed through our "Democratic" process. Shame on you for questioning the almighty will of Queen Pelosi and her well informed minions, all of whom are amply sheltered within their gated community homes, and thus will not be affected by an influx of criminals and welfare-bound vagabonds.

Bill Tozer

More lib logic. If one little "blue" pill can give one an woody lasting 4-6 hours and a trip to the ER, what would a dozen pills do? Queen Nancy obviously knows the answer. She took a couple handfuls of them little blue cures to find out what's in them. To be fair, The Queen did agree to have her Botox injections taxed at a higher rate. Never seen a lib that didn't climax over the thought of a tax hike. Judging by her appearance, she single handily has paid more than her fair share into the Treasury. Botox or no Botox, that 71 year old's mug is enough to make a freight train take a dirt road.

According to liberal logic, that old whitebread bag should move aside and give someone of color a chance...for the sake of diversity of course. Too many ugly white incoherent libs currently in office. DiFi is 81 and Boxer looks like something one avoids stepping into on the doggie path. Makes Maxine Waters look like a pin up babe by comparison.

Patty Haley, Atlas Shrugged was written to convey the limitless power of "self-reliance", a concept which created our superpower country in a rapid timeframe that has not been paralleled in world history. Self reliance used to be the difference between survival and death, now it is the difference between those who innovate and create, and those that enjoy a steady diet of government cheese.

Walt, I think Patty was referring to the book.

[For the record I have read almost all of Ayn Rands work and seen both parts of the film trilogy released.}

Scott Obermuller

So - all books in which there are no children or old people are....?
I did watch the Andy Griffith show. I don't recall him lying or screwing young girls or making up new rules to cheat the town folk out of their money. He was respectful of authority and the law. He didn't take bribes from crooks. Quite a refreshing change from Sacramento and Wash DC. Too bad people don't vote for folks like him. Of course, it was a fictional character and his next in command was never trusted with a loaded fire arm. Gee - that sure sounds familiar.

Bill Tozer

Now some liberals say that Obama is not a Libby cause he ain't liberal/Marxist enough. Guess we have to take the kiddies on a tour of our fine institutions of higher and staying high learning (Humanities Departments) to show them what a real libbie/Marists looks like.

Now, this is how the liberal/Marxist mind works. First the promises of what our Nation will do FOR you, then the deceit and facade and rule books taller than Mt Everest to keep State as the one and only God in existence. Example: Cuba. Disagree? That will cost you 20 years.

Scott Obermuller

Here's the latest H.L. hysteria from the GV Union letters to the editor -
"Impeach the Supreme Court, Citizens United, McCutcheon and Hobby Lobby 5. No company should force their employees to not be covered for birth control, etc., due to their own religious beliefs. I feel this is not right and against the constitution giving the right for woman to choose what is right for her own health and body.
Marian Farris
Grass Valley"
I'm sure Marian really believes what she wrote is true. She has never read the decision or talked with anyone knowledgeable on the subject. H.L. employees have the same exact rights under Obamacare as anyone else, but she probably doesn't want to believe that. We are a divided nation because the left spews lies at an increasing rate.
Best line of the day though, goes to Ms Pelosi as she quotes the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
"I reference the conference of bishops statement in which they say baby Jesus was a refugee from violence. Let us not turn away these children and send them back into a burning building."
Uh, Nancy - first of all, we're not a theocracy. Next - you usually tell the US Conference of Bishops to shove it. Now you quote them?
How many of these children are at Nancy's mansion?
Ah - that's right, they're being sent to some where far, far away from anywhere you live.

I find you conclusion humorous Fish since I am the one present at the source advocating for a more rational regulatory scheme, more access to capital for rural regions, regionally specific regulation to account for differences in implementation between urban and rural regions, limits on regulation through sunset laws and periodic review and elimination of regulation, performance metrics to measure and rationally assess the impacts and benefits of regulation, and multi-year state and federal budgeting to understand the costs and impacts of programs and regulation over their lifetime.

Just seems like a more rational way to get change than succeeding from the Union.

It is easy to sit on the porch and drink beer while reloading spent shells and complain between yourselves about a cartoon version of government that is out to get you.

But what am I doing commenting here...the cartoon version of Nevada County is better left to its static frames which become even more apparent with the absence of interlocutors.

Bill Tozer

Mr. Stevenfrish. Good luck with your reviews of outdated regulatory tomes, reviewing sunset clauses and establishing metrics. Better men than I have labored by the candle light well into the wee hours until dawn approached to no avail. Sunset clauses are usually extended and government does not even like the word metrics. Worse than fingernails on the proverbial chalkboard. One might be responsible for a program, but no one is accountable. Plus metrics are a real threat to our public servants and you are proposing taking food out of the mouths of their children. If Obama nor Reagon could not accomplish anything but mere window dressing concerning your endeavors, then....call me a cynic.

Was it Reagen who said something like "The closest thing to eternal life on Earth is a government bureuarcy." Have at it and I sincerely mean that. Maybe you can get some sense into the higher up's senseless way of doing things. Who knows. "Can't never accomplished anything."

WHAT???? Progressives suck up to quiet money just like those "others"?!?! That's unpossible!

Well well.... " America" is "now showing"! The parking lot was packed today as I drove by. LIB logic backfired, and someone had to eat crow. I don't think it was a hot idea to ignore the local Conservative demographic.

I remember well, when the owners of every movie screen in town refused to show
the "rebuttal" to Mike Moore's crapumentery. ( they are close friends of the Moore family) Yes, the "not" one percenter.( nine homes he owns... and LIBS whine about greed and carbon footprints) Maybe someone can see if he owns one or two here.

Yup,, seems the never-ending calls to the theaters has paid off.

OK Steve,, your up to bat. Brag about reading the book, and now you can see the film.

Bill Tozer

Walt, good to see ya back in the saddle. Soon you will riding bulls and breaking broncs. Head em up and move em out, Rawhide.

Walt

Not quite " in the saddle",,, but closer to being dragged with a foot caught in the stirrup. But I got my "timely" appointment at the VA,,, in OCTOBER....
OH how heath care is SOOOO much better.. It sure would have been nice to have what I had before.

Bill Tozer

Today's second chuckle came from a shocked and dismayed editorial concerning getting folks in Southern Cal to take the drought seriously:

"Getting individual Californians to take the drought seriously isn’t the only problem. When the SWRCB asked California’s 440 water suppliers to fill out a survey detailing their efforts to conserve water, 61 percent didn't bother to reply."

It's not nice to mock the liberal mindset, but I will say that the above mentioned mind set is beginning to resemble a Rodney Dangerfield routine.

Why does it always turn out that some animals are more equal than others?

Walt

Fish. The story reminds me of a "local" ECO guy who gallivants all over the place at "other's" expense.

Walt

More LIB logic... But it only applies to "them", and the excuses fly.

Plagiarism is fine and dandy. Now what if a Repub had claimed other's work as their own? I think we know how that would have gone down....

Patty Haley

Well, I don't know where to begin. I must say I am very disappointed with the behavior I have witnessed. I thought men of your generation had more class. After living in Nevada County for seven years, I understand more ever more clearly the meaning of politics makes for strange bed fellows. I will now say adieu and wish you all luck with all your dreams and endeavors. Similar to the Middle East,I seriously doubt there will never be peace in Nevada County.

Bill Tozer

My, my, I am sooooo wounded.

Similar to the Middle East,I seriously doubt there will never be peace in Nevada County.

Well I for one will take the high road and refrain from shelling/rocketing the local townsfolk.

Who says I'm not a reasonable guy?

Walt

My AR-10 hasn't fired a shot in anger,, I haven't seen bodies in the streets.
Our "1ST" Amendment overpass has been real lonely lately.
Even the local rag has been tame for some time. Save for the gripe about "America" getting passed over on opening night.

Sorry,,.. That "indirect fire" has fallen a smidgen short.

I was nearly driven to incontinence by Patty's last comment. This must be a first, dialogue on a local blog here in little Nevada County has been (without sarcasm) compared to the international and epic conflict between Israel and Hamas. The best irony in this can be found in the fact that this post was originally created to denigrate liberal logic.

There is no way to have a discussion with someone whom compares mild discourse between less than 10 people to a historical conflict that encompasses the lives of millions. This is perhaps the most humorous situation of my day. Thank you Patty Haley for your patronage, please feel free to stop by here anytime and school us all in the liberal technique of erroneous comparisons and making mountains from anthills.

On a side note, here is a very interesting read, complete with legitimate sources:

It would be interesting to know how many tea-partiers and Jefferson statists make the blacklist.

KeenO 400pm - A very keen and scary observation. Thanks for passing it on.

I think that almost all the badthinkers™ here are probably on the list…a list…..well maybe a couple of lists. Okay all the lists!

You're probably safe though Patty.

Bill Tozer

The liberal/Marist mind set is too predictable. Been waiting for someone like my Brother Ben to compare the current Hammas firing of missiles at civilian populations with the express to kill as many old ladies and little babies as possible WITH how we on this blog are treating the little people pouring in from Cental America or the big guy who is singlehandily currently causing a pasta shortage across Old Europe. Been waiting but Ben &Co are off to the monastry keeping their vow of silence. Oppps. Ben & Co. would be comparing me to a bully and comparing the little babies in The West Bank to how we treat Black Americans by not giving the teachers' unions more money.

Guilty as charged.

here is something the liberals can never wrap their heads around:

"We can forgive you for killing our sons. But we will never forgive you for making us kill yours."
Golda Meir, to Anwar Saddat just before the peace talks.
Israeli (Russian-born) politician (1898 - 1978)
She went on to say there will be no peace until the Arabs love their own children more than they hate us.

Sounds kinda familiar.

Scott Obermuller

Oh, please don't go Patty! You were such a good example of liberal logic. You drop by with an obtuse comment, refuse to elaborate or give any back up arguments, and then you call us names and leave. Well, we can all bookmark what little we did hear from you and drag it out to use as an example of how the left operates. Ta!

Bill Tozer

If this isn't a prime example of liberal/Marist/Elitist/Obama mindset then there is not an example that exists. Has all the liberal mindset ingredients: Arrogance, shouting down speech and thoughts, denying others their right to assemble, mockery, shutting down others in a free speech zone, name calling and justification and rationalization of irrational emotional coming unglued at the very sight of those that do not bow to them.
Can you say intolerance? Can you say arrogance? Can you say elitism? Can you say bully? Can you say detached from reality? There, I knew you could.
Favorite lines are
1). I am twice her age and have 3 degrees! Listen to me, not her.
2). I have the moral authority so what I did was good.

You can't make this stuff up. And the good professor with 3 degrees and possesses the keys to moral authority is not teaching now, is not scheduled to teach in the fall or beyond, but is not missing a single paycheck. Thank your lucky stars that we, the immoral taxpayers of the Great State of California, keep paying her salary for doing squat.
