I noticed the northern neighbor of Great Britain was omitted. Baaah..

Sounds like a Nero moment -

While the city’s Department of Public Health estimates the expanded law would help only about five people, the board was fractured over whether the city’s already clogged mental health care system could adequately help more patients.




WOW LIBS!!! This is what your Queen thinks of you!
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) recently expressed concerns that the American public is not smart enough to truly understand the impeachment process.
Tell us again the LIBS don't go after the uneducated votes.
Yet this whole time they have been promising you Trump's impeachment. And you eat it, hook, line, and sinker.

Yet "MAD" Max has one second of mental clarity.
"Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), one of the first lawmakers on Capitol Hill to support impeachment proceedings against President Donald Trump, admits that the American public does not support her position."

OK LIBS,, your time on the overpass awaits! Get those misspelled signs out demanding Trump's impeachment. Lack of evidence has never stopped you before!

This is what I sen via email to the Union's editor and publisher this morning.

"Reading the paper today it is clear you choose articles that trash Trump almost exclusively. Why is that? If you preach "fairness" and bi=partisan why are the articles so negative. Even your cartoon today is ridiculous and not even funny. When he does something bad I am all in for holding him accountable. But when the news is good you deny him his due. Even the articles that you will cite as neutral from today are worded to diss him. If you want to kno why America is divided I suggest you read your own paper and take some responsibility for the divide."

That's great Todd. Hope your third grade English teacher doesn't correct it. And your grumpy old man lack of humor will be on display too.

Todd @ 8:04 am

1) Been waiting for you to show up to post this for you. When they put the 5 short clips together, it is truly amazing how spot on and insightful Candace is. Talk about empowerment.
Like most topics here (affordable housing, paying for college, ad infinitum), the first thing I ask myself is how or what can I do to accomplish or what changes do I need to make to achieve stated goal or solve stated problem.....while the Left always first and foremost thinks externally who can fix the problem for them.


I would not worry too much about the Union. It’s a small town paper and expectations should be lowered. Someday it will be published twice a week to survive. Remember, this is Hillary County. She was the most experienced and qualified person ever to run for office in the history of the United States, you white (gasp!) male chauvinist capitalist pig, you.

There is hope for the Union yet. A “journalist” from Buzzfeed and a “journalist” from the Huff-n-Puff Farting Post have had their moment of clarity: it a business, stupid.


Todd Juvinall

I see we have a new troll (836) but yes, I hit enter to fast and have errors. But the left does a great job at spell check and are lousy in debating the substance of any topic. The thing we face is so widespread in America and this week we saw the same thing in England. The left are good spell checkers there as well but morons on all those "man on the street" interviews. The divide is everywhere.


Naaaa,,, OLD TROLL,, just a stupid new name.


Well LIB druggys,, you have another legalized mind bender.

Bill Tozer

Deep State? Must be another one of those Right Wing conspiracies. :)

“People talk about the deep state, now the deep state's actually protecting their own," says Sen. @RandPaul on ex-CIA Dir. John Brennan keeping his security clearance.

"I was sitting in the White House when President Trump said I want his security clearance taken.”

Brennan has been an outspoken critic of Trump and his tendency to question the motives of members of the U.S. intelligence community. He recently said he hopes Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats and CIA Director Gina Haspel will "stand up" to Trump's "unprecedented act" of granting Attorney General William Barr "full and complete authority to declassify information" related to the origins of the federal investigation into possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Paul said he thinks Brennan has been "a partisan" and "abused his office in developing the Trump investigation. I think it was done under false pretenses and done for political reasons."


George Rebane

BillT 950am - It's interesting that such pronouncements about Brennan, Clapper, et al still make needed news. To at least half the country, their politically motivated abuses while in office and salacious accusations as private citizens are now an accepted tautology - as self-evident as the sun rising in the east. Yet, I guess, some still need to be reminded of it from time to time. Thanks for the catch Mr Tozer.

Todd Juvinall

Received emails from Rogers and Hamilton and they both say their articles are just fine and I am wrong. The left is so biased they can't even see it at all.

Dumber than we thought! Say what? -

Here's one for you Texas polling shows Biden up by 4 over Trump and believe it or not Warren only down by 1 !!!



Punchy McPunchface 104pm

Wow, indeed. Trump is bound to lose... but this is before Desperate Dems claw each other to pieces in the next ~15months in primaries leading up to the Democratic Party National Convention.

The only poll that counts will be on a Tuesday in November 2020.

Sit back and enjoy the show.


Okay, after the dust has settled and Brian Dahle has been elected the state senator from SD-01, Peter Van Zant and Jeff Pelline are boasting that "blue" Nevada County got Dahle elected. I wonder if they read the colunms in the Union, the letters to editor and the posts on Pelline's own blog, where Democrats lamented the fact that two Republicans were in the finals and many stated they were not voting and had thrown their ballots in the trash as soon as they received them and were not going to vote. So if all those "blues" didn't vote how did they help Dahle get elected???

Paul Emery


Don't you find it interesting that tne Demss are even close in Texas which went to Trump around 10% in '16? What that poll means is Texas is indeed in play for '20.

Barry Pruett

Keith. When have you ever known Jeff Pelline to care about facts? Fake news brother. 😂😂

Barry Pruett

In addition Congratulations to Brian Dahle. No matter what so-called political insiders say, Brian Dahle is a good man. I can’t for the life of me understand why Kiley even ran against Brian. Mind boggling

Bill Tozer

@ 12:02 pm

“Dumber than we thought! Say what? “

Oh, it’s not just Bernie. It’s a contagious mental disorder on the dark side of the street. Need proof? Well, here in Kalifornia, our Lefties booed a man trying to be reasonable at our recent lovely CA Leftistista Convention. From the local CBS affiliate in Denver:

Shut the F up!!

“The welcoming cheers 2020 presidential hopeful John Hickenlooper received when he first graced the stage at California’s Democratic Convention quickly crumbled into boos and jeers after he rejected socialism as the answer to Democrats’ problems.

“If we want to beat Donald Trump and achieve big progressive goals, socialism is not the answer,” Hickenlooper said to a crowd of more than 4,500 delegates and observers on Saturday.

“Before he could get finish his next sentence, a chorus of boos along with a sea of waving “Bernie” signs overtook his speech, lasting for more than 30 seconds. The moment prompted Hickenlooper to attempt a smile and eventually break from his remarks to add, “You know, if we’re not careful, we’re going to end up helping to re-elect the worst president in history.”

Well, that’s nothing new by any means. Read ‘em and weep (or chuckle). From 4/2018


George Rebane

Keith 153pm - That most certainly is a silly but expected piece of progressive thinking. 23% voter turnout of 8K voters of whom 5K voted for Dahle. Given that two Repubs were running, then what fraction of the 8K voters were Dems? Ans: few if any - it wasn't 'their' election. So it takes some kind of a serious brain fart to conclude that the 5K of the 8K who put Dahle over the top were blue voters.


Posted by: Bill Tozer | 05 June 2019 at 02:14 PM


But this time Bill……with the "right" people at the helm…….this time it's sure to work.


I find it virtually meaningless, Punch. For one thing, they make no claim of the respondents being anyone who answers the phone, or registered voters or likely voters. The lack of a claim makes me suspect it's anyone who answered the phone.

One interesting factoid from the Quinnepiac poll... whites with college degrees went strongly for Trump, but non college educated folk (like you!) went 2:1 for Biden and 3:1 for the Bern.


Paul Emery

Here is a hiostorical fact:

In the March primary for District 1 Senate the Dems Candidate Pfluger was no 1 in the polling once again showing Nevada County is a Blue county, the Blue pimple as George likes to call it.

KEVIN KILEY 2,269 votes 10.33%
SILKE PFLUEGER 8,843 votes 40.25%-Dem
STEVE BAIRD 1,287 votes 5.86%
REX HIME 1,416 votes 6.45%
BRIAN D. DAHLE 7,743 votes 35.24%
THEODORE DZIUBA 412 votes 1.88%

Paul Emery

the numbers are what they are Gregory. Texas is in play for '20


Looks purple to me, Punchy.


Paul..Joe has to stay out of jail before he can become President.
He and his Son's Russian ties are still in play.
I'm sure you and your LIB news will keep a lid on that as much as you can.

Paul Emery

Call it what you want Gregory. Blues are winning most of the elections. Are you implying Trump may carry Nevada County in '20?



"Did you know that Donald Trump Jr. was named a director to Ukraine’s largest private gas producer following a Ukrainian visit by President Trump? Trump later threatened to withhold $1 BILLION in U.S. aid to Ukraine if they didn’t fire a prosecutor looking into Don Jr.’s company. Just kidding! That was Joe Biden when he was VP, and his son Hunter Biden."

Yup, Stump for the loser Joe Biden. He's been on a winning streak of losing.


Punchy McPunchface 255pm

Geeze louise. Enough with the "are you saying..." questions when it's obvious I didn't say anything of the sort.

I'm also not forecasting snow in October 2020.

Paul Emery

the question was "are you implying" All you've got to say is no. You are so dramatic Gregory. Cracks me up.


Posted by: Paul Emery | 05 June 2019 at 03:06 PM

Hey! Uncle Punchy is back!


Bill Tozer

Caretaker gets arrested. At least they won’t hang the Coward of Broward County.

e) “Neglect of a child” means:

1. A caregiver’s failure or omission to provide a child with the care, supervision, and services necessary to maintain the child’s physical and mental health, including, but not limited to, food, nutrition, clothing, shelter, supervision, medicine, and medical services that a prudent person would consider essential for the well-being of the child; or

2. A caregiver’s failure to make a reasonable effort to protect a child from abuse, neglect, or exploitation by another person.


Now, if we could just apply the same “Peterson” rule to the teachers and administrators who participated in the dumbing down of America since 1970......


Punchy McPunchface 306pm

All you have is making stuff up to put into other's mouths and asking them if that's what they meant to say. Really.

In the case of your 246pm, while the far lefty from truckee got nearly 41% with a plurality in Nevada County only, a full 54% of the Nevada County votes went to *Republicans* and Dahle would have won with a runoff only in Nevada County.

Now, it might have been had the Senate district scared off any mainstream Dem as an unwinnable waste of time.


So Paul forgets how all the polls across the EU and UK were WRONG.
And that was just last week.

When you poll LIBS, you get pro LIB results.

Abd when you are running on nothing but "I hate Trump", and not what are are actually going to do to fix the national problems, well, good luck with that.
You think running on "open borders" in Texas is going to win votes?
Jacking up taxes? And of course GUN CONTROL,, in Texas?
Keep dreaming Emery.

They must be polling all the Calf. transplants.


Bill. Yup, the coward of Broward has been charged.
I don't see a conviction.. SCOTUS has already made it clear.
Cops and security have no "duty to act".
I'm with the rest of the nation. Take him out and hang'm.
But the right to be a coward is on his side.
I say eventually,, he's going to walk.

Sounds like fans of the littlest commiecongress critter -

“Literally ‘America is the greatest country in the world’ triggered the left on your campus?” said Marlow, “That is crazy.”
“The [administration’s] idea was that maybe it could offend people who were from another country and who had family in another country,” Gallipoli explained.

“But we argued — we have rivalries with other schools, and we say stuff like Notre Dame sucks,” added Gallipoli, “So what’s the problem with saying that America is the greatest country in the world when we think West Haven is the greatest high school in the world, and that might offend people who would transfer from Notre Dame.”
The student went on to explain that after the pro-America signs triggered leftist administrators, the TPUSA group invited Connecticut GOP chairman J.R. Romano to their next meeting, which was met with online attacks by a board education member in another school district.

Hugs all around!

“Hey! Uncle Punchy is back!” - Fish

“The former hippie cum community icon is also a walking teddy-bear, garnering hugs from ladies on Broad Street every hundred feet or so, and from diverse restaurant patrons when we’re having our regular lunches.” - Dr. Rebane

“I played for the Queen”—author unspecified

Georgia was in play in 2016 and even Texas. Oh, they where looking at the polls and checking them twice, then creaming their jeans.

"One of the boys" -

Donald Trump joked "he can handle it" as a 93-year-old D-Day veteran flirted with US First Lady Melania today.
Thomas Cuthbert laughed, "if I was 20 years younger" as he shook 49-year-old Melania's hand - right in front of President Trump, 72.

Trump added: "It's my honor, believe me, thank you very much."
Speaking after the meet-and-greet, Mr. Cuthbert, from Elmstead Market, Essex, said that Trump "came across very well".

He added: "He surprised me, when you see someone on the TV but he seemed different, he seemed one of the boys.



Bill Tozer

Walt @ 3:31 pm

Of course he is going to walk. And he was not arrested, but merely charged. But, his wallet will a lot thinner defending himself. A lot thinner and I don’t foresee anyone starting a GoFundMe page for him.

Sheriff Israel lost his appeal and got booted out of office and to the curb. Good job, Governor. The shooter Cruz had 34 contacts with LE and the Coward County Sheriff’s Department, so hopefully things will change now. And Gillum ran, but he cannot hide.


Over in the adjoining state of Georgia, Stacy still says she is the rightful winner, roflmao. No, Stacy Abrams, you did not lose because of race. It’s because you were 100% against guns...in Georgia! Oh my. Can’t wait for Shotgun Joe to put on his Elmer Fudd hat and go campaigning in Texas.

Paul Emery

Thanks Bill for the kudo's

The numbers are what they are Gregory. You have to be reminded constantly.
