Well if you cant find evidence of rancid russin dressing go after the real Marxists!

The DNC’s current argument over how to reform its primaries achieved a special kind of absurdity on Monday when longtime DNC member Bob Mulholland asked whether Vickers’ appearances at meetings were paid for by Russians. Mulholland, who often cc’s reporters on his memos about the rules debate, speculated over the weekend that “someone is picking up her expenses” and that this was evidence that “the Putin operation is still active.”

Apologize for a change of topics, but Dr. Judith Curry recently made a presentation on the State of the Climate which is posted here:

https://sierrafoothillcommentary.com/2018/06/12/state-of-climate-debate/

I highly recommend reading Dr. Curry's presentation, especially the sea level rise slides. I would like to hear from all the Anthropogenic Global Warmers where Dr. Curry's analysis is not correct. Let's not have a cricket chorus on this important issue.

Monday's election results have some interesting numbers to consider. Most significant is that Hillary Hodge picked up around 200 votes on Dan Miller receiving around 700 of the 1200 (rounded off numbers) votes counted since last Tuesday for District 3 Supes. Thats 58% of the new votes compared to 42% for Dan miller. With around 2000 votes to be counted for District 3 she will easily surpass the 100 vote lead that Dan Miller currently has if that trend continues. One has to speculate as to the demographics of the later voters and why are they different by such a margin to the early votes. Dan had a 56-44% margin in the first 2800 votes counted last week which was reversed in the last batch of votes cutting his lead to 100 votes. We'll know more on Thursday when a new batch of votes are released. Also Shannon Moon increased her lead over Bill Smethers in the last batch from 32.58 % to 34.28 seemingly indicating the later votes are part of a blue wash.

Very interesting numbers.

Again it’s fascinating that the self identified Green Libertarian who really has no dog in the fight is so preoccupied with the Democrats in the election. One could be forgiven for thinking that he is clumsily misrepresenting himself in an attempt to maintain some pretense of impartiality when arguing with political opponents!

Walt

I really think Paul is trying to make common core look workable.
Fuzzy at best.
If one looks at what a Libertarian actually thinks, believes, and votes,, Paul sure ain't it. Just the first three letters is the true Paul.

Someone wake up Paul!
http://dailycaller.com/2018/06/12/avenatti-russia-conspiracy/
"Michael Avenatti told The Daily Beast Tuesday that he believes the Russian government is trying to plant damaging stories about him in the press, without any evidence to support this claim.
“They’re doing it because they see me as a threat, a considerable threat,” he told The Daily Beast. “If we weren’t a threat, none of this would be happening.” "

I'm preoccupied by the demographics in our county and how election results reflect that. Numbers are fascinating to me and this election is full of numerical goodies that I can ponder over. I thought you were a Libertarian Fish yet all I hear from you is Trump gushing. Trump is the exact opposite of a Libertarian especially in his foreign policy and use of military and especially his anti free trade tirades. How do you justify your support for Trump Fish if you claim to be a Libertarian?

Todd Juvinall

District Three is always a close election and it is a anti-incumbent district. The odds are Miller would be the underdog.

Bill Tozer

If the Blue Wave does not happen with trendsetting CA leading the charge, then it may happen this year. A look at the primaries tell me that in super duper Progressive California, the liberals done just lost their super majority in the statehouse. Something to do with taxes, a tax revolt or something. Getting back to our roots....back to the Boston Tea Party. Back to the future, I reckon.

And to think that the CA Democrat Party rejected a Progressive woman of color and opted for a former Big Pharma lobbist to lead the state party. Odd, I thought Big Pharma was the evil bad guy.

Hmm. Newsome kicked back and raked in the cashmere from unions and Blue Cross. Blue Cross? That be a Big Insurance. The lefty voters of CA rejected POC Antonio Villaraigosa Andmopted for some white dude for governor. Newsome does not look like who we are. Interesting, very interesting. Much to ponder.

Punchy 508pm


If there was a blue wash to the last cycle, why was the bluest of the Sheriff candidates, John Foster, not a beneficiary?

The crazy "everyone casts an absentee ballot" system mixes up the ballots... there's not a definite lumpiness to the order of the counting. No, we're waiting for the reactionary ballots from Lake Wildwood, or the warmista ballots from downtown Nirvana Silly. Yes, you are preoccupied with an early detection of the impending Blueness that will finally chase out the people you really are not happy living near, and have told they'd be happier elsewhere. If there's an arrow of Progressiveness... why did it get reversed when the Gang of Four (including Van Zant and "Izzy" Martin) got elected and then unelected?

Paul Emery

Gregory

why is it that the Sheriffs choice and the one endorsed by the Republican party can barely muster a third of the vote?

Paul Emery

The blues split their vote between Foster and Moon. For example, Heidi Hall endorsed Moon. I have no doubt that either of them would have won outright against Smethers who I like by the way. He would make a fine sheriff as would any of the three candidates in my view.

Gregory

Punchy 702pm

Try rewriting this comment of yours into a more specific and coherent question, remembering that I'm the only consistent Libertarian here and so did not bother heeding local GOP endorsements.

Bill Tozer

Gregory brought up a great point in a previous post. The libertarians’ vote does not count at all for state wide offices. They done got kicked out of the system. You can have two Dems, one Dem and one R, and that’s all that is allowed. You Libertarians and third party folks got the door slammed in your faces. That don’t seem fair, but that’s what the voters decided. And Bernie got kicked out of the Dem Party for 2020. He ain’t DNC enough for the Big Tent.

So, for a state wide office in California, Punchy, Greg, Fish, moi, Don, Todd, Dr. Rebane, and who knows who else’s vote does not count. Guess Boardman is the only winner. “Heads I win, tails you lose” kinda thang. Must be those Frisco Values.

Well, I suppose Linda Campbell said it best.

“As a life long reader and subscriber of the Union, getting tired of their ideas or minority ideology being imposed on the rest of Us.”

Yep, best to silence those minority opinions. Very inclusive. The Dems’ diversity is their strength....right. The only thing equal here in CA is our votes do not count. Maybe Linda’s does. Now, to silence those minority views and life would be even better. Spoken like a true authoritarian, statist, and tyrant. Hmmmm. Looks like HH88 ain’t the only one struggling with adulthood.

Don Bessee

Note to punchy they are all republicans! Foster and his campaign manager who is under investigation by the state went for the lefty/pot vote. Moon is a decline to state after being a R until the end of April. Bottom line is as Gregory noted, no wave. 70% of the vote went for Sheriffs office management who have my world view. ;-)

Gregory

Toes 710pm

Voters as a whole are dumb and easily stampeded. I expected from the beginning that the system as sold, that it would result in "more moderate candidates" in November elections, was a Trojan Horse to transfer even more power to the Blue Meanies in Sacramento. It's a way to transfer more votes to the folks with ties to the big money machine of public employee unions transferring cash automagically to Democratic Party Politicians in on the subscription plan.

Don Bessee

There is more than one swamp to drain!

The University of Michigan changed its speech policies on Tuesday, one day after the Trump administration weighed in on a federal lawsuit alleging the school unfairly trampled on student’s First Amendment rights.
On Monday, the Department of Justice filed a statement of interest accusing the Ann Arbor school of imposing a “system of arbitrary censorship of, and punishment for, constitutionality protected speech.”
The Justice Department’s motion was in support of a May lawsuit against the school by Speech First, a free speech advocacy group. Speech First alleged the University Michigan’s Bias Response Team, which responds to reports of any speech a listener finds “bothersome” or “hurtful.”

Since April 2017, the Bias Response Team has investigated more than 150 incidents and removed flyers, posters and even erased whiteboards, according to the lawsuit.
The school has since updated its speech policies by adopting more concrete definitions of “bullying” and “harassing.” The University of Michigan said it will now use more formal definitions found in Michigan state law.
“The revised definitions more precisely and accurately reflect the commitment to freedom of expression that has always been expressed in the statement itself,” said E. Royster Harper, Vice President of Student Life, in a statement released by the school.

"California’s 168-year run as a single entity, hugging the continent’s edge for hundreds of miles and sprawling east across mountains and desert, could come to an end next year — as a controversial plan to split the Golden State into three new jurisdictions qualified Tuesday for the Nov. 6 ballot."

BillT: "The libertarians’ vote does not count at all for state wide offices."

It's an interesting side effect, but not one that the crack KVMR news crew cares about I think.

I'm being repetitious, but I think the really interesting result will be the inevitable fissioning of the California Democratic party as they fight over the carcass. There really isn't any way around it, it's baked into the cake of humanity. It won't be only the split that will be cool to watch, but how they invent an organizational structure that allows them to still be viewed as a single (D) in terms of the US Congress and the electoral college.

Of course, other states have their own peculiarities. John McCain (R-Mex) appears to still be a Senator for example.

Paul Emery

So Don you are saying that shannon Moon shares your world view? Does that mean that you would support the rescheduling of Marijuana from being a class one drug? Shannon Moon supports that action.

I'd be lying if I said I thought you were bigger than that low blow.

Bill Tozer

1) Very telling.

“Does that mean that you would support the rescheduling of Marijuana from being a class one drug? Shannon Moon supports that action.”

Now it makes sense. It’s not race, sex, gender, or views on the environment. It’s Moon supports rescheduling pot for the potheads from a class one drug to something else. My, my. Moon or any county sheriff or big city police chief does not have the power to accomplish that, neither does the governor. So, Moon’s support for something she has zero control or influence over is why she’s da man! She’s Punchy’s MAN!
Also tells me that Punchy only cares about pot. Nothing new. Somethings don’t change. I support my county supervisor cause she wants to mine astoriods for gold. Makes sense to me.
———————————
2). Coffee spiting time: “He is better off in Argentina.” ROFLMAO. I can’t believe he said that. Zinger.

TRUMP-BASHING SOUTH CAROLINA REP. SANFORD IN TOUGH PRIMARY FIGHT AGAINST GOP NEWCOMER

By contrast, Trump said that Sanford "has been very unhelpful to me in my campaign to [Make America Great Again]. He is MIA and nothing but trouble. He is better off in Argentina."

In June 2009, Sanford disappeared from public view for six days and later claimed that he had been hiking on the Appalachian Trail. He later admitted that he had in fact traveled to Argentina to meet a woman with whom he was having an extramarital affair.

Yep, Sanford out, new face in, the face of a woman. Changing of the guard. “I fully endorse Katie Arrington for Congress in SC, a state I love," tweeted Trump, who was traveling aboard Air Force One after his summit meeting with North Korean strongman Kim Jong Un. "She is tough on crime and will continue our fight to lower taxes. VOTE Katie!”

My gawd, that Trump is an animal as well as a multi-tasker. Does that man ever sleep?

Holy Smokes.

Trump sending US Marines to Norway, doubling the build up going on there. I think we are getting ready to invade Sweden andwarvwill beeak out in the region. If they are sending in the Marines, you can bet your bottom dollar they ain’t going in to clean up garbage off the streets Clinton and Obama did in Haiti.

I think Trump is getting ready to protect and evac those Norway refugees and bring them here. Norweigns are educated and have skills. We welcome them to our shores. God bless the Marines on their mission. Bring back all the Norweign refugees safe and sound, boys. Our thoughts are with you.

...you know, the odd thing about the M post at 6:50AM, I really had to knit my brows, is the concept that countries need a trade balance in a particular good.

In a simplistic world, I would think you would shoot for an imbalance of net zero for all goods together. Trade lumber for milk.

In a more complex world, you net zero with all countries added together.

In a yet more complex world, you try not to export purely mined goods since there's a long term problem of running out.

I've always had sort of a problem with this given my naive concept of comparative advantage. If your country has no advantage at all, or an imbalanced advantage, I can't help but think that the long term result is always to move ownership of capital assets to foreign nationals.

I realize this is all a response to the pussy grabbin' Orange Hitler and has nothing to do with trade policy. It's easy to have malleable beliefs in an era when politics has little to do with economics.

Of course, now I wonder why I would respond to yet another contentless 'M' post. It's like reading a huffpo chatbot.

I saw that one coming months ago. Easy call. Stormy is still dancing in dark bars that charge 20 dollar cover, peddling her old videos, and got screwed by lawyers...her lawyers. They made the big time, she gets thrown under the bus and pushed away. I knew she would have got screwed. She got $130,000 bucks for doing 5 minutes with private citizen Trump years ago and took the money to keep it under wraps. More money than she ever saw in her entire life...blackmail money. Now, she may be out that 130k, left to strip before balding lonely men.

The Russians are messing with her lawyer!

I could say the exact same for Kathy Griffin. She was offered riches, fame, and forune by her publicity whore self-appointed lawyer, the daughter of Gloria Allred. They chewed her up, used and abused Kathy, then spit her out. Not to say that Kathy did not do it to herself, but her lawyer was more interested in passing out business cards than returning Kathy’s calls. She would have been better off to follow her first gut instinct and it would have blown over. But, no. The ambulance chasers left her high and dry after they sucked all they could out of her for their own purposes.

Same for Cindy Sheehan or our own Patti Smith. I warned Patti, who was a regular Florence Nightengale for the suffering. But, no. Her focused single issue agenda got hijacked by the black market growers and those who wanted to use medicinical only pot as an excuse for legalized pot. They never gave a crap about Patti, just used her to promote their agenda and kick her to the curb when she did not condone their blackmarket growers’ agenda. Money talks, Bull pucky walks.

Stormy, as old as she is, is still getting screwed and working for a few dollars waved before her inside seedy dives outside small town city limits. Sad

So if its Weinstein its the casting couch, so what do yo call it when a 21 year old media intern just happens to hook up with a 53 year head of security for the intel committee??

New York Times reporter Ali Watkins’ swift rise to prominence in Washington, D.C. journalism circles happened quickly by industry standards, as she is still only 26 years old. But now the media industry is wondering if some of her success is due to top-secret pillow talk — and ethical lapses that may have come with it.
Last week, a shock indictment revealed that prior to joining the Times, Watkins had a three-year romantic relationship with former Senate Intelligence Committee aide James A. Wolfe, 58, who was accused by federal prosecutors of lying about leaks of sensitive information to journalists, including Watkins herself. And now the New York Times has announced it is investigating Watkins’ conduct, just as the young reporter is leaving the office for a “pre-planned vacation.”
Watkins began her career in 2013 at McClatchy Washington Bureau, where she was a finalist for the coveted Pulitzer Prize less than three years after she started as an intern while she was still earning her journalism degree from Temple University, according to her LinkedIn page. Along with two colleagues, Watkins and her team were finalists for the 2015 national reporting Pulitzer for “timely coverage of the Senate Intelligence Committee’s report on CIA torture.” She then landed at The Huffington Post and bolted to BuzzFeed and eventually Politico, all by 2017. She stayed at each news organization for a brief time, covering national security.

So far, this story, if true, is of monumentous portions of the separation of powers.. Rosiestein threatening the Oversight Committee? WTF???? This is crossing the line, big time. It’s more than CYA, it’s putting the department ahead of Lady Justice, ahead of everything. The Justice Department is really showing it’s teeth to those who have lawfull Oversight over them....for precisely this very reason. They are bearing down and snapping back like the rabid dogs they are.

Andrew McCarthy is being much too kind and fair and balanced here. He calmly points to what we know already. Hey, the State Department or CIA can break all sorts of laws. But it’s the Justice Department that can put you in jail.. Threatening the Oversight Committee? Who do they think they are? The Justice Department ain’t even in the Constituttion and no statue can ever supersede the Constitution.
Anyway, glad McCarty is calm about this...I am not. This fight is not about R or D’s or I ‘s or Trump. It’s bipartisan. It’s country over government. That’s the fight. Ok, here’s Calm Andy.

Can you believe this is a thing! Will NAMBLA be in the streets rioting soon?


The U.S. House approved a ban Wednesday on the importation and trafficking of anatomically correct child sex dolls and robots that “normalize sex between adults and minors.”
The proposal was approved in the House by a voice vote and now moves to the Senate.
“These dolls can be programmed to simulate rape. The very thought makes me nauseous,” said House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, a Virginia Republican.
Child sex dolls are one niche of a nascent robotic sex industry that has generated debate about the ethics of the use of lifelike machines for sexual activity. It is a subject that turns from squeamish to outright revulsion for many when it touches on child sex dolls and robots.

Some folks push the envelop too far. After the shooting in Little Boss Hogg’s Coward County, a video game came on line called Active Shooted. The game was pulled after outraged parents of school shooting victims ensued. Wonder why. Common sense prevailed and the game was pulled.
There are some real sickos out there, besides the child robots for pedophiles and Walt’s 4:14 pm post about UCSB students writing course material about teaching 4 year olds about masturbation and watching porn. The sickest ones are found on campus and in the entertainment industry. Sick stuff. Makes Harvey Weinstein look good by comparison.

Libertarian or bigot?

The pronoun controversy seems silly. “If somebody wants to be called ‘ze’ or ‘zir,’ why not?” I ask him for my next online video.

“I don’t care what people want to be called,” he answered. “But that doesn’t mean I should be compelled by law to call them that. The government has absolutely no business whatsoever ever governing the content of your voluntary speech.”

What if I politely asked him to call me “ze”?

“We could have a conversation about that,” says Peterson, “just like I would if you asked me to use a nickname. But there’s a big difference between privately negotiated modes of address and legislatively demanded, compelled speech.”

That sounds like a reasonable, libertarian take on the issue, but for comments like that, Peterson is called a “bigot,” “Hitler,” “transphobic piece of s—t.”

“That it has to do with transgender people is virtually irrelevant,” replies Peterson. “The issue is compelled speech.”

,,,something you won't hear from a trumpski cult 45er,,,

,,,Last night, I rode the greyhound bus from Bakersfield to Las Vegas to visit family.
When we got to the California/Nevada state line, as always, there's a checkpoint.
(This checkpoint USED to be one where they made sure you weren't carrying fruits into California, bc of an invasive fruit fly species).

Anyway...

The bus driver makes an announcement: "We are being boarded by Border Patrol. Please be prepared to show your documentation upon request".

WAIT. WHAT THE FUCK?

So you know I'm ready to act an ASS.

I stand up and say LOUDLY:
THIS IS A VIOLATION OF YOUR 4TH AMENDMENT RIGHTS. YOU DON'T HAVE TO SHOW THEM *SHIT*!!! This is illegal. We are not within 100 miles of an international border so that have NO authority to ask you for ANYTHING. TELL THEM TO FUCK OFF!

And, Since my Spanish sucks, I Google translated how to say that in Spanish and repeated myself:
Esto es una violación de los derechos de su cuarta enmienda. ¡No tienes que mostrarles nada! Esto es ilegal No cumples, y no tengas miedo. Están equivocados, y no dejaremos pasar esto

The lady next to me did not speak English. She looked terrified. I reassured her that I had her back.

The agents get on. Proceed to announce that they are about to start asking for "documentation" from people.

I Stand up and yell "I'm not showing you shit! I'm not driving this bus, so you have NO RIGHT to ask me for anything! And the rest of you guys don't have to show them anything, either! This is harassment and racial profiling! Don't show them a gotdamn thing! We are not within 100 miles of a border so they have NO LEGAL RIGHT or jurisdiction here! GOOGLE IT!"

The agents start to look exasperated, because they can see I'm willing to act a WHOLE DONKEY. One of them said "Fine. We can see that you're a citizen because of your filthy mouth". And then they just said "go ahead" to the bus driver and got off.

Jobless rate at 44 year low, economy starting to click, QE no more, and Trump lied.

Trump lied. He say we would get so tired of all this winning that we would ask him to stop. He lied. We ain’t growing tired and we ain’t asking him to stop winning. Trump lied!

Has Dougy bailed out "jon" yet? She still in the clink?

Bill Tozer

Has Dougy bailed out "jon" yet? She still in the clink?

Well, it’s conspiracy theory time.

1) I have always associated jon smith as an advent supporter/friend/soul mate defender of Steve. But, when I found out Steve is married, that threw the idea of jon being Steve’s butt boy out the window.

2) Then there is Robert Cross with his feline side, the Chico State connection, and one unhinged Campbell’s Soup. A link? Boy, Bobbie sure got defensive when someone joked that Mary Cross, an Auburn Fire Captain, got busted for DUI here and Bobbie threaten to sue for slander. Mary is only 50. What ever happened to that DUI case? Anyway....Bobbie and Linda went to bed, Linda rolled over and Bobbie is dead.

3). Third and in light of today’s anticipated IG report. We assume that Lisa and Peter are lovers. Any proof? Suppose the “lover story” is part of the Ministry of Disinformation fake news to give “lover cover” less weight to a deeper more planned, more evil workings of the silent coup. Lisa and Bruce G. Ohr (whose wife worked for Fusion GPS on “the dossier” and has been demoted) worked hand in hand. Ohr’s title was Associate Deputy Attorney General, whose office was four doors down from his boss, one Deputy Attorney Rod Rosenstein. Then there is Lisa’s constant meeting with Andy, one Andy McCabe who was fired publicly, much to jon smith’s dismay.
Then there is Peter. Peter, Peter, Peter. Interviewed Flynn, went flying off to England to talk with the mole, got placed on Meuller’s team. Peter telling Lisa what to do, Lisa telling Peter what’s going on in the offices and meetings. Very well cordinated. More than mere lovers?? More than just pillow talk? A day by day, sometimes hour by hour, running narrative of the silent coup. The best time line by far.

I think we need to probe the depths of Lisa’s contact with peter and we need to investigate the depths of Peter’s probe with Lisa. Lovers? Let’s see the evidence stand up in court. More must be revealed.
What ever happened to Lisa? We know Peter is over at HR, pouring through personnel files.

Gregory

"cited in the new report is an exchange of texts between FBI officials Peter Strzok and Lisa Page on Aug. 8, 2016. Page questioned whether Trump would become president. Strzok replied: “No. No he’s not. We’ll stop it.”

Didn't work.

,,,oh dear!!! I have offended the spelling NAZIS!!!,,,as if this was some sort of intellectual discussion,,,LOL!!!

Bill Tozer

Gregory....that quote you mentioned above was not redacted. It simply was omitted when the texts were handed over to to Oversight. Lest we forget, Congress established the Justice Department and has Constitutional Oversight. Opps, forgot to include that one...among others.

The plot thickens. Now we find out that Comey used a private G-Mail account and Hillary had “hostile actors” inside her private server. Hostile actors inside Hillary’s private thang? Shudder the thought.

Eight out of ten State and Federal elections drew more Democrats than Republicans to the polls. Deal with it Todd. I feel bad for you. Good deals on land in Plumas County where your kind hold a solid majority. Hope you don't leave though. You're such a relic from the old days.

But Hodge still lost in spite of your claims of a closing blue wave. Miller gained ground. Just more of the same ol' same ol' from the po' ol' putin party parrot. ;-)

Could this be the end of PC culture?

By a 68-19 percent margin, the latest Fox News poll finds voters feel political correctness has “gone too far.”

Bill Tozer

@5:11 pm

PC and TDS are our friends, Don. It gives them endless opportunities to get angry. And each time they get really angry, they get more and more absurd...for all the world to see. It’s quite unappealing watching the Enlightened Ones (our betters) behave in such a manner, standing there buff naked in the wind howling at the sky. In fact, it’s quite the turn off for normal people. Police Blotter stuff.

Without PC, Trump would have never won the Presidency, IMHO. Thank you Progressives, we could not have done it without you. Bless you my children. We owe you a debt of gratitude we can never fully repay. Never change.

Don Bessee

That's not the tune you were singing not that long ago. As if you could possibly be consistent as a po' ol' fakenewsman. You pointed to the sheriffs race as prof of your blue ripple and when reminded that all the candidates were R with one a late switch to DTS you grabbed onto Hodge and her closing blue wave. Here what she wrote today;

“This afternoon, I called Dan Miller to congratulate him on his re-election. We learned today that with likely fewer than 200 votes left to tally in our district, 181 votes separated the two campaigns. This was a hard-fought race and we should all be proud of what we accomplished.

There was some ebb and flow but the pattern held overall. Still unsure why such a high undervote.

Congratulations to Dan and Roxanne who I called a few hours ago, they were sipping mojitos on a well deserved tropical vacation. That's a tough district.

LOL Paul, every race is partisan. Right down to dog catcher.

Gotta feel Story for HH88, a very nice community asset. . She wanted so badly to move to Nevada City, but could only afford the ruffian streets of Grass Valley. Good thing she volunteers on the Board of the Nevada City Chamber. It’s a better fit for her. Birds of a feather flock together and all that jazz. It’s more vibrant in Nevada City, except for that non local kangaroo sign.

Help Jeff, he’s attacking me. This adulthood stuff is so much work. Ah, no use being so mean. Now, onward to root out those Trump voters. Shame on you, shame on you, you misogynists you. What will we tell our daughters? What will I tell my Latina niece? What will I tell my wife? What will we tell those who are now fearful? What will we tell those who are hurting? Answer: Cue Leonard Cohen. Ah, all better, no?

Walt

Now that NONE of us who voted by mail know that if our vote was ever counted(or will be),, one thing is for sure. I will go and vote in person the proper way. At least I know THAT vote has a greater chance of actually counting.

Bill Tozer

Even KNCO on election night with former elected officials yapping said that the District 3 race was the most political of all the local races. Did notice that the single issue homeless advocate did not make it to the Nevada City Council. Why are they so mean in Nirvana City? And Dwayne made it. That surprised me. But, but, but Dwayne once took money from someone who supported the racist bigoted far hard right extremist Constitution carrying flag waving Tea Party knuckle dragging Patriots!! How could this be? What happened? WTF happened?

Quick, run to the overpass and retake our comfort zone. Bring bigger signs. Stop Israeli Apartheid! Get the US out of El Savaldor! .
