I've been through this many times on this blog and don't have the desire to walk you through it again. What does it sound like to you? Pretty simple-think personal responsibility for your environment, Duh...

Scott O

Yes Paul, it is pretty simple. To the point of not being of any utility in the real world where nothing is simple.
Your 'personal responsibility' sounds great until we realize you leftys only want to apply it to yourselves when and if it suits you and to others only when it will apply to certain selected groups.
A 'green libertarian' is as self cancelling as a meat-eating vegan. You're free to call yourself whatever you like, but I find the fabricated label to be nothing more than a trendy and hip sounding load of gibberish that tells me you have no idea of what the hell you're about besides sticking a moistened finger into the wind of political fads.

Bill Tozer

Free speech and Russian troll farms.

“A May 24, 2019 order in the “Russian interference” case United States v. Concord Management & Consulting exposes a particularly troubling flaw in the government’s effort to control, manage, and curate political ideas from abroad. The special counsel appears to have forgotten to explain how foreign political speech broke U.S. law.

According to the May 24 order, the government is required to demonstrate that Russia-based company Concord had a duty to play “Mother, may I?” with the DOJ and the Federal Elections Commission before posting political speech on the internet using assumed names. Without that, the entire criminal case falls apart.

As noted by Judge Dabney L. Freidrich, speech that might “sow discord among US voters through divisive social media posts and political rallies … by itself, was not illegal.” Truly, all political speech has the potential to be divisive or sow discord. The prosecution of any political criticism of Hillary Clinton without citing the specific laws supposedly being violated is troubling, to say the least........

“The Mueller indictment’s criminalization of Concord’s effort to “sow discord” has chilling similarity to Chinese justifications for censorship: “to curb the harmful effects of illegal information on state security [and] public interests.” Mueller’s report makes little or no effort to explain why political speech that originates from another country is a crime. It’s not.”

Re BillT 945pm - how would a leftist like PaulE respond to this obvious truth - crickets?

Scott O

BT - 9:54 - thank you, I missed that article somehow.
This entire issue goes to the core of free speech. What it is and what it isn't.
Free speech is the right to publicly disseminate ideas without govt interference. At the margins, there is controversy and unclear court rulings. ie - cursing in public, displays of nudity and so forth. Advocating or urging violence against some one is obviously not allowed although it seems these days the bad orange man is fair game to some and exactly what 'violence' is has become a rather twisted tale. The bald fact of the matter is that the left is usually at a disadvantage when it comes to information and ideas, so we see that in schools the idea of free speech is being re-formed or mutated into something of a rather odd animal.
Judge Freidrich has it exactly right. Free speech is only free if we are allowed to upset people or offend them. The lefts' invention of 'hate speech' must be squashed. Words themselves are not violence. If some one presents an idea that you cannot counter because you have not the wit nor the facts to do so, you will have to deal with it peacefully. Attacking or shouting down the speaker must not be allowed under any circumstance.
If we are to criminalize a foreigner for expressing views in our country, then what shall we do about Americans expressing their views about another peoples or land?

Rock Hunter

Paul 7:44
You speak with perfect sense. Completely understandable. Of these jackasses I can believe that only Todd is bewildered (when isn't he), but the rest of the boys are probably smart enough to understand exactly what you are saying, but pretend otherwise and gang up on you and gas light you like a gang of KKK thugs (who knows that they aren't, they have never even pretended that they aren't) enjoying a black man at their party.

You are understood and what you say is the truth. Don't let the bullies on the block get to you.

Scott O

There you go, folks - Rock Hunter at 7:33 - voice of the left.
Hunts rocks so he can throw them.
That's all the left has.
Sad.

Trump should be Emery's hero today. Trump called off any retaliation
for the act of aggression of shooting down our drone and the tanker attacks.

Good job "Rocky".. Emery needed that hand job.

If Punchy is uncomfortable here all he needs to do is refrain from offering his nonsense.....nobody is going to chase him down. But if he insists on posting an inanity like Green Libertarianism™ its not unreasonable for him to expect some well deserved mockery!

Ah yes - as long as it's approved left-wing 'variety'.
HH will also want the NRA and the local Christian churches to host a story hour - right?

Todd Juvinall

ScottO I suggested a cop or firefighter but the left mocked that. Transvestites make up one-hundredth of one percent of the population and have been considered perverts but the left is trying to normalize that behavior. Pretty soon they will have a serial killer do a reading of Mary Had A Little Lamb.

from the KVMR newsman - "The (sic) consistently believe all of Trumps lies and believe him fit to be President when he has the maturity of a spoiled 4 year old. I'm sad to say this includes our host."

Trump lie bad, Paul lie good.

Todd Juvinall

Paul Emery cracks me up. He agrees with a troll who is as phony as he is. A green libertarian? Sorry they are not real. Rock and Paul are quite the pals.

Trump is in their craw as are any conservatives as they are exposed for the liars they are. And they are haters as well.

Bill Tozer

Well, I have held my fire. Today is the first day of Summer, 2019. Robert Cross said that Trump would be gone from office in Spring (2019).

Roberta is the one who tells us what we can read and that which we may not. Whatever source that Roberta read that guaranteed that poor girl that Trump would be gone from office in Spring, 2019.....I am glad I did not read that crap...or if I did, I sure as heck would not fall for that garbage like she did. Oh my. Stupid is as stupid does.

If a perfect world, there will be no sadness, no disappointments, no bad juju feelings, and not trauma.

“Concerns over the mural seem to have originated not with any actually "traumatized" students, but with former San Francisco Unifed School District board member, Matt Haney, who has since gone on to an illustrious career in San Francisco city government. Beyond just painting over or covering the mural, Haney actually wanted to change the name of George Washington High School because George Washington owned slaves (a fact depicted in the mural he wanted covered up).”

Dr. Rebane @ 2:05 pm

Where have you been? Only Punchy can ask questions and rest of us must answer. Shame on you for asking a question.

Daily Quotes....no commentary necessary

Upright: “Most of the best parts of our constitutional order are undemocratic and act as counters to the popular passions of democracy, which our Founding Fathers understood, feared, and held in contempt for good reason.” —Kevin Williamson

Food for thought: “Self is now god in America, and modern man will embrace whatever delusion he must in its worship.” —Peter Heck

For the record: “It sure doesn’t feel worse than when I grew up in Jim Crow Alabama. So let’s drop this notion that we’re [in] worse race relations today than we were in the past. That means we’ve made no progress. Really?” —Condoleezza Rice

Nice pivot: “I’m absolutely comfortable using that term because it is rooted in an academic definition. Often times when the term concentration camp is evoked what people think of are extermination camps. They think of Auschwitz.” —Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Non Compos Mentis: “I know what concentration camps are. I was inside two of them, in America. And yes, we are operating such camps again.” —George Takei

Braying Jackass: “[Donald Trump’s] uncontrollable jealousy of Barack Obama will lead to thousands of premature deaths from air pollution, wildfires, floods. What a small-minded, short-sighted little man.” —Bette Midler

Alpha Jackass: “Men and women who have bad genes with genetic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, cancer etc should not produce children. They have no right to make others suffer.” —feminist author Taslima Nasreen

The BIG Lie: “More than 100 years ago, Planned Parenthood was founded on the simple idea that our bodies are our own — without that, we cannot be truly free or equal.” —Planned Parenthood president Leana Wen (“Wrong. Revisionist history. Planned Parenthood was founded on EUGENICS by Margaret Sanger, whose goal was to make sure ‘undesirable’ populations weren’t reproducing. Or, if they became pregnant, their babies were aborted.” —Liz Wheeler)

D'oh! “My name is Ms. Hicks.” —Hope Hicks to Rep. Jerry Nadler, who on multiple occasions called her “Ms. Lewandowksi”

And last… “This is your daily reminder the Attorney General of Minnesota is someone who is accused of multiple incidents of domestic abuse with 911 calls and bruises as evidence. His name: Keith Ellison. Democrats pretend to ‘believe women’ until real abuse happens within their own party.” —Charlie Kirk

"The Bureau of Cannabis Control announced the launch of an ad campaign to persuade customers away from the illegal marijuana marketplace and promote legal, safe cannabis.

The campaign “will directly impact consumer safety by clarifying that only cannabis purchased from licensed retailers has met the state’s safety standards,” Chief of the Bureau, Lori Ajax, told The Associated Press."

https://mjbizdaily.com/california-national-guard-not-yet-redeployed-border-combat-illegal-marijuana-farms/
"California Gov. Gavin Newsom alarmed many Northern California cannabis growers during his state of the state address in February when he announced 150 National Guard troops serving at the U.S.-Mexico border would redeploy, in part, to “go after illegal cannabis farms.” "

And even funnier,,,
"they are awaiting federal funds requested by Newsom in February to finance their assignments to specific Counterdrug Task Force missions, a California National Guard spokesman told Marijuana Business Daily this week."

Walt

And the best comment at the bottom of the story

"david on June 12th, 2019 - 4:17pm
‘“(Farmers) who are doing it the right way – or even attempting to do it the right way, complying with the laws to the best of your ability – they shouldn’t worry about the California National Guard.”’

Good to know, I’ll tell that to the judge, when I fight my misdemeanor ticket. Or to save time maybe I can pay for two or three tickets while I’m at court, you know, to save time!"

Well, that’s one way to get Democrat Party votes.

“Virginia Lt. Gov. Justin Fairfax Considering Run For Governor, Says Sex Assault Scandal Raised His Public Profile”

“Of all the Democrats currently involved in a political scandal, Fairfax is the only one who has been accused of something without evidence, and he has denied the sexual assault allegations against him. The first accusation came earlier this year, in February, after it looked like Fairfax may ascend to Virginia governor following the revelation that Gov. Ralph Northam dressed in blackface while in medical school. A second accusation against Fairfax came days later.

“Neither of the allegations against Fairfax have any evidence to support them outside of the allegations, yet national and local Democrats called for Fairfax to resign.

“Those calls quickly disappeared after the next in line for governor, Attorney General Mark Herring, also admitted to wearing blackface in college, which would mean the next in line for governor would be a Republican.”

https://www.dailywire.com/news/48707/virginia-lt-gov-justin-fairfax-considering-run-ashe-schow?utm_source=facebook&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=benshapiro

Hmmm. Looks like Gov Ralph weathered the storm. I can hear the popinjays now; “I’d vote for a white southern boy with blackface makeup on if he could beat Trump.”

Yaa, Emery, before it was a state park I could go to the river for FREE. I could bring my dog and beer as well. Even swim nekid if we felt like it. Nope,, not anymore! Long before you Proggys got hold of it was a great place. Never needed a river cop.
Yup your kind sure fixed it good.

Rock Head at 9:33 - "...that Michael Funk can own riverfront on Rock Creek (they believe it's the Yuba)."
Check out Google Earth or better yet, just go there.
Funk has property, roads and a structure as near to the Yuba as he does to Rock Creek.
The property is at the confluence of Rock Creek and the Yuba. I've been to the river there long before Funk was there and I've been to the Funk residence.
The house faces the creek, but it's on the Yuba as well.
He owns a shit load of property all along the river.
Both sides. Rock Head has his head up his own Rock.

860 acres to be exact. His house and private property are on Rock Creek. The rest of the property is held in public trust. Does it bother you that a private citizen can buy property and put it into a trust where neither he nor his heirs can subdivide or develop it? It is to be left in a natural state for perpetuity. If you don't approve, cry yourself a beer and tell us how "the people" like you should demand he use it.

Bessie-
Jig Wiggly is the name of a bass lure. So sorry your snowflake sensibilities are so offended by the style of a fish hook. Have another shot of whatever Todd is drinking.

Walt-
Please educate us on who exactly you claim the state stole the land from. The Indians? I'm pretty certain the land was owned by BLM well before the dam was built when USACE took over the operations and handed the midstream property over to the State to manage as a park. BLM still owns the property upstream of the park boundary.

Never thought or wrote anything about that.
And you're trying to ignore my comment about looking at Google Earth.
I never implied or wrote or thought anything about the propriety or legality of where his land is. Just saying I've been there and you can see the river as well as you can see the creek.
You'd best stop tilting at windmills.

Rock Hunter

Scott-
I have been to the Funks on numerous occasions. You CANNOT see the Yuba from their house nor the house from the Yuba, It was specifically designed to comply with the river's W&S designations. you can see Rock Creek from the house, but to reach the gold mining claim at the confluence you have to go across the driveway and onto a foot path that goes over a hill and drops to the river several hundreds of feet away. The path has been there since the late 1800s. Stare at Google Earth all you want. "All those roads" were part of a mining community over 150 years ago. His house is largely on the old stamp mill foundation.

Todd Juvinall

Jig is a racist dog. Probably a drunk and a meth user. Go back to to the opium den scumbag.

Todd Juvinall

Funk got a pass on the WandS designation that all others had to abide by. Rock Hunter is a liar. I was quite involved in the fight against designation and its effects on private property. The rules are quite strict yet SYRCL and Funk somehow circumvented those restrictions. Rock Hunter does not know diddly.

After decades of being the shot callers and King makers, they find themselves in the most unfamiliar position of being irrelevant....and they do not like their new status one bit.

Same is true of the Council of Foreign Relations. Trump never bowed before them and took their opinions as the final word, nor followed their superior blueprint. Their phone was not ringing! Yeah, bring China into the club and they will become more democratic. Right. Knocking them down a peg really upset the apple cart. Many bruised egos. A smug elitism crept in and they were the last to see it.

That does not mean they (like Will) should be dismissed out of hand. Nay, they have many valid points and pen some great conservative commentaries which are highly recommended. Jonah Goldberg comes to mind, especially because Jonah never had an overinflated sense of self. How refreshing. The others will never recover. They forgot where they came from. Some, like Kristol, sold their souls for prestige and status and acclamations....quite aphrodisiac cocktail. Trump just exposed their unwarranted puffery. The last thing George Will can stomach is irrelevancy. Romney as well.

Quote: “If Obama had called off air strikes, the media would demand he get the Nobel Peace Prize.” “Such a double standard”— Ronna McDaniel.

To which I reply, “What do you mean ‘if’? The media demanded Obama get the Nobel Peace Prize simply for breathing air. They are our bettors. :)

Wigged Out Pig - "You CANNOT see the Yuba from their house nor the house from the Yuba..."
Um - then what was that water course thingie I could see that Rock Creek ran into? You know, the wet stuff flowing in Yuba Canyon?
You do have to open your eyes, ya know.
I'm sure he complied with whatever strictures they put on him.
It's a big place - Probably there are some areas (at the house) where you would stand and not see the river, and there others where I did indeed see the river. Michael was a gracious host and I would appreciate you to not falsely put words in my mouth that he has done anything wrong.

Revisiting the Drag Queen Drama Hour at The Union... the comments are smoking.

I do wonder if Supervisor Heidi Hall is off the wagon.

Then there's the others The Union article quoted: Jenna Sauter (seen here in an NPR story: https://media.npr.org/assets/img/2018/01/25/moms-1-21451f8701174d1fba148016ea8dee7dfc13c6f7-s1600-c85.jpg) and "Lindon Lossow" (who, if they exist, has managed to do so outside the purview of both Google and DDG). Nice virtue signaling, whoever you are.

In fact, there's Virtue Signaling everywhere in this story telling. If you don't like it, don't take your kid to the reading. And bring it up the next time there's a ballot issue with library funding to be decided. Or a County Supervisor to be selected.

This is an event supposedly meant for three to eight year olds. Confuse them when they're young.

BT at 8:46 - I've read Will's stuff for decades. He is a conservative, but as you point out - he does live and breath for the good life as an 'acceptable' conservative in order to attend the proper partys and mix with the 'correct' crowd.
Some of the folks over at the NR strike me as being intelligent enough to know what side to be on, but lack the courage to stick with it when the NYTs start making fun of them.
I read the NR and Taki's Mag. They take pot shots at each other on a regular basis.
Jonah G doesn't like Trump, but he's been principled about it and only goes after The Donald for real sins, not the made up blather we hear from the left.

Sorry - my 9:12 - That was for Rocky, but the Piggly seems to be over the top on this one as well.
