Damn Scenes, you are checking ALL of the dispatch logs. Or at least the GV and Nirvana City dispatch logs of calls. I can only do Nevada County cause, due to lack of strength and curiosity, County is where my interests lie. You follow the municipalities and I will do the county…..from Combie to PV to NSJ to the place where the Women are Rough and the men are Ready to little town of Washing Machine and all non three digit addresses. Screw the Nirvana City and GV. Too many of those calls are Karens and Punchy calling in about someone put a ‘Go Back To Berkeley You Stink Ass’ sign on a stop sign near the Miners Foundry. I like the Kabooms!, not the duds.

When the current snow emergency is over, then all those calls about crazy neighbors and punks on dope will filter in. In a middle of a snowstorm with roads shut down, do you really think the cops are going to go out and arrest someone without a shirt on walking down the road screaming at lampposts. I notice the actually arrests are currently at a minimum, as it should be. Someone strange car parked in front of some paranoid Karen’s house for 5 minutes with the engine running? Sorry Karen, deal with it. Lol.

A photo taken March 1 in front of the Capitol shows Rosendale posing with Ryan Sanchez, who was part of a white supremacist group, and Greyson Arnold, a pro-Nazi podcaster and blogger who was at the Jan. 6, 2021

Rosendale has faced scrutiny in the past for his connections to fringe groups on the right.

In 2014, a photo was taken of him speaking at an Oath Keepers rally in Montana. The leader of that group, Stewart Rhodes, was convicted last year of seditious conspiracy for his role in the Capitol riot; he has yet to be sentenced.

Rosendale voted to oppose the certification of election results from a number of states, amid pressure from then-President Trump to overturn the 2020 election because of baseless claims that the contest was stolen from him."

Bill Tozer
So, if Tom Jurkin goes not get money to make his video to encourage the County to adopt emergency measures about him living in a trailer or old bus or RV, then he will continue to live in FEAR about getting red tagged and forced to move on. It is apparent that despite all his pontification about the homelessness, it is Tom himself who has a very vested personal interest in getting new emergency regs passed so that he can continue to flaunt the law. Quite a large personal stake our esteemed journalist has in “helping the homeles.s” The one with the most to lose and most to win is none other that our esteemed Union freelancer himself.

If I can get a nonprofit to sponsor me, I can apply for a $100K grant to do a documentary on alternative housing and conduct a public awareness campaign to encourage the Board of Supervisors to write emergency housing regulations.
Those regs would allow unhoused and underhoused people (like me) to live safely and without fear of forced relocation in alternative dwelling units (AltDUs) such as trailers, yurts, RVs, tiny homes, and self-managed homeless camps."………………………………………………………………………………………………………………..…………..what the hay is underhoused? You repeatedly and most unequivocally declared that the five abodes people were being evicted off some lady’s 10 acres were SAFE, yet they were red tagged (or should have been on the spot) and deemed unsafe from the get-go. Good thing you never made it as a home builder here IF that is your messed up idea of SAFE. So now your safe abode is under constant threat because it is underhoused? Your are under the the existing threat of forced relocation?? What the hay is going on here? Somehow, we only get half the story from you, Tom. And you resent the heck out of people talking trash about your abode? I wonder why. They say God created whiskey to keep he Irish from ruling anything. How true, how true. It’s ALWAYS about you.

scenes: Nevada County building codes.

I remember reading in the local rag a few years back about a couple of metal building that blew over in high winds. Read something about the County’s new codes for metal garages, sheds, shops. Did not have much interest to me until…..until…..until……until….I wanted a metal storage building. Oh my.

A simple detached 600 sq. ft metal AG building/storage shed/shop with no services. No power, no water, no toilet. A stand alone 20’x 30’ metal shed. Easy Peary, right? NOT!

First, Nevada County is only one of four counties in all of Northern California that does not accept the manufactures’ engineered plans, which come with the purchase and install for everyone else. Nope, I had to get an engineering architect to submit the plans, 3 copies of blue signed. That added $1,100 plus to the cost. Add permit fees (about 2k), school fees (only $65) and now I am really to get started, right? Nope.

The cement guy in Yuba City came highly recommended but refused to do any more work in Nevada County. Why? Because everywhere else you apply for pre-work inspection, get the ok to start, and then dig the forms and lay the rebar in, send pics to the inspector, and then pour. Not in Nevada County. First, the ready to start inspection. Then you dig the forms, compact soil, lay the rebar and everything stops. You have to have the building inspector come out pre-pour cause Nevada County does not accept photos with tape measures from the contractor. So, the contractor instead of digging the forms, compacting the soil, send in the job site pics and get ready to do the pour, has to make two trips minimum to Nevada County, wait for inspector for ok. A one day job for a small slab with a good experienced cement guy is now two-three days and dealing with the county. Small stuff, but he no longer deals with Nevada County. But, that’s small potatoes.

For my steel shed, I needed (again engineered) a one foot wide and one foot deep minimum foundation. WTH? My humble abode is less that 20 years old and rests on a six INCH wide foundation and they require a one foot foundation now for a detached metal building with or without slab! Yes, one can put a nice steel building on dirt or asphalt without the slab and I won’t get into those anchor requirements here. My anchors alone cost about 700 bucks.

So, that is to make it safe cause one or two do it yourselves put up crappy metal buildings. The manufacture sent two great guys and they did great, great, great clean profession work.

Anyway, my zoning is AG, not even AR or RA. And had to submit elevation reports, snow level reports, strength of steel and anchor reports, etc. And where I live, there has been no accumulated record of snowfall since 1960.

So, imagine what the structural requirements would be for an open sided carport tall enough to park an RV or trailer under up around Tom Jurkin’s self directed homelessness camp would be. To Residential zoning, Nevada County let you live on site in a trailer for one year….once you pull construction permits to build a legal abode with septic, power, etc.

My 3 bed 2 bath abode with vaulted ceilings sits on a six inch wide raised foundation…..yet a detached steel building requires a one foot wide foundation in 2023.

Tom’s underhoused abode is zoned R. Residential has different, tighter requirements. :).

One complaint, one health department/inspector truck roll.

From a horrid fly-over state: That’s one born and raised Californian who ain’t ever coming back.

-FYI. WY has a volunteer legislature. This year's legislative session was 37 days. One of the most significant bills passed during the session was the state’s supplemental budget, where $1.4 billion was placed into savings. For every dollar spent in the budget, $3.50 was put into savings.
Comparing California's debt of $152,772,292.00 or $12,823 per capita (SLG). Wyoming has a surplus of $3.8 billion available after bills have been paid, which is a credit of over $19,000 per capita. Here is a question. Which State is fiscally responsible?

I'm surprised that a tin shed in NC doesn't require solar, battery system, sprinkler system, low income housing unit attached.

I'd say that the way to go is to buy a place with a shed, replace it one wall at a time, replace the roof. Shack of Theseus.

At this point, I'm surprised that there's any new construction, aside from those guys who are wizards at working the system for some of that sweet gubmint grant money.

Elon Musk Responds After FTC Reportedly Makes 350+ Demands For ‘Specific’ Internal Company Information

https://www.dailywire.com/news/elon-musk-responds-after-ftc-reportedly-makes-350-demands-for-specific-internal-company-information

What does Twitter firing of the lying sack of shit former FBI General Counsel and Russian Collusion Hoax pusher have anything to do with the FTC???

Information relating to journalists’ work protected by the First Amendment, including their work to expose abuses by Big Tech and the federal government;
Every single internal communication “relating to Elon Musk,” by any Twitter personnel — including communications sent or received by Musk — not limited by subject matter, since the day Musk bought the company;
Information about whether Twitter is “selling its office equipment”;
All of the reasons why Twitter terminated former Twitter employee and FBI official Jim Baker;
When Twitter “first conceived of the concept for Twitter Blue,” Twitter’s new $8/month verified account subscription; and
Information disaggregated by “each department, division, and/or team,” regardless of whether the work done by these units had anything to do with privacy or information security.
“There is no logical reason, for example, why the FTC needs to know the identities of journalists engaging with Twitter,” the statement from the House Judiciary concluded. “There is no logical reason why the FTC, on the basis of user privacy, needs to analyze all of Twitter’s personnel decisions. And there is no logical reason why the FTC needs every single internal Twitter communication about Elon Musk.”

scenes, the Credit Union was yesterday. First to go. All those have flat metal roofs. I remember watching them build the Fowler Center back in the day….my last days of drinking. Lived in a tiny home/shack next to the motorcycle shop which was next to a flower shop on Nevada City Hwy across the street. The shack was owned by Meeks and only cost $150/month. I saw them build those places and now, via the internet, I see them coming down. Memory lane. Flat metal roofs behind the facade. If you can get on Nevada County Happening now, they have a great pic of a collapsed building (hanger) somewhere.

On metal buildings, the more pitch of the roof, the stronger (thicker) the steel and steel walls and supports have to be. I went with a 4-12 roof down here in the Inferno Zone because I know I can get some tornado like winds down here that never make the news. Also, a 4-12 pitch looks better IMHO. My humble abode has a 6-12 pitch of all things. Not for snow load (zero…rated 33lbs I believe) but for aesthetics. I dunno. Bought it that way when the housing market fell out in the Great Recession.

What needs to happen is my very humble abode needs to be moved up the hill and all those flat to 2-12 pitch roofs need to be moved down here. Simple solution. Simple but not easy.

Twitter laughs, groans as Jill Biden gives biological male Women of Courage award: 'Up your game, ladies'
Gov. Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted, 'It’s International Women’s Day – a good time to remember that Democrats can’t even tell you what a woman is'

First Lady Jill Biden and Secretary of State Antony Blinken were slammed Wednesday for presenting a biological male from Argentina with an award for women on International Women's Day.

"Nice of FLOTUS to encourage the diminishment of women on ‘international women's day.’ Erasing women is abusive," host of The Dana Show, Dana Loesch, tweeted.

"International Women's Day: Not just for women anymore," conservative Twitter personality Andrea Katherine wrote in reply.

"Apparently men are a lot better at being women than women are. Step up your game, ladies," Townhall columnist and radio personality Derek Hunter joked.

"We are not a serious country," Common Sense Society's Christopher Bedford responded.

Claremont Institute president Ryan P. Williams tweeted, "The jokes write themselves…"

"Nothing screams ‘International Women of Courage Award’ like a dude."

"This is disgraceful and unacceptable!" Republican National Hispanic Assembly national editorial board member and podcaster Jennifer Barreto-Leyva tweeted.

Trump 2020 Lawyer Admits Misrepresenting Stolen Election Claims

Jenna Ellis, an attorney for Donald Trump who helped drive his false claims about the 2020
election results, has admitted in a Colorado disciplinary proceeding that she misrepresented evidence
at least ten times during Trumps frantic bid to subvert his defeat.

Scott O

GG 10:10 - Hilarious! You realize by the standards of this disciplinary proceeding, we should get rid of most all politicians in DC?
And the Dems are the worst offenders.
None of what she has said alters the fact that the Dems illegally changed voting laws prior to the election or any other of the many proven lies and misrepresentations by the Dems.
The entire Jan 6th committee should be at the very least censored for their shameful activity.

Bill Tozer

Large noted that Ellis wasn’t Trump’s counsel of record in any lawsuits challenging the election. But he also noted that Ellis admitted her actions violated “her duty of candor to the public.“ ROFLMAO

Ellis is the latest Trump attorney involved in the former president’s post election efforts to face discipline. Rudy Giuliani had his license temporarily suspended and is awaiting a final ruling from a bar discipline proceedings in Washington DC. John Eastman is preparing for disciplinary proceedings in California. Jeffrey Clark has temporarily delayed bar proceedings in Washington DC while attempting to bring his fight to a federal court.

Jenna Ellis is the first attorney of the group to acknowledge she misrepresented the evidence of fraud.

Gregory Goodnight

Among Jenna Ellis’s admitted misrepresentations:

-Ellis claimed on Nov. 23, 2020 that Hillary Clinton didn’t concede the 2016 election

-On November 20, 2020 Ellis claimed Trumps team had evidence of “a coordinated effort in all these states to transfer votes from Trump to Biden, to manipulate the ballots, to count them in secret.

-On November 30, 2020, Ellis said on Fox that “Trump won in a landslide”

-On December 4, 2020, Ellis claimed the trump team found that 500,000 illegal votes had been cast in Arizona

Pretty amusing that only R lawyers are considered fair game for lying about an election.

"Ellis was publicly censured, but the action will not have any effect on her ability to practice law.

She also agreed to pay $224 in fees related to the disciplinary action.

In a statement after the judge's opinion, Colorado's Office of Attorney Regulation Counsel said it wasn't pursuing any other charges against Ellis."

Yet as highlighted by Fox 5 New York, “there are plenty within this community who are wondering, even when those who are responsible are found, what sort of consequences they will actually face?”
Indeed, thanks to a 2019 bail reform law, shoplifters and other ne’er-do-wells like the ones featured in the video often go unpunished or are given a slap on the wrist before returning to the streets. Now, even Democratic lawmakers are calling for changes to state law.

“It’s utterly ridiculous that a small subset of career criminals make up 30% of shoplifting arrests in 2022,” City Councilman Robert Holden (D-Queens) recently told the New York Post.

Harris mocked for stating that kids are facing ‘climate mental health’ issues: ‘Fundamentally unserious'
One user accused the VP of 'just making stuff up' with the claim

Harris said the young woman gave her an example to help her understand, saying, "One example is you know whether, when they’re ready, could they start a family – worried about what that would mean and the stress of it."

The vice president continued, saying, "They were talking about in terms of their peers trying to figure out, you know, they’re going to have to get a job and they’re gonna have to make a living – but what they can do and how can they adapt the education that they are having now to their activism?"

Twitter mocked the speech, with some stating that if kids are stressing about climate change, it’s because politicians like Harris have made alarmist claims about it.

Easy math everyone can get behind?

House Republicans want to cut discretionary spending by 45% that would affect Defense, Head Start (included in Housing & Community), public housing and homeless programs (Housing & Community), federal aid for public K-12 education (Education), Pell grants for low-income college students (Education), food assistance for Women, Infants and Children (or WIC, in Food and Agriculture), job training and placement for unemployed people (in Social Security, Unemployment and Labor), and scientific research through the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and National Science Foundation (NSF), among many others.

The Fed thinks that raising interest rates will eventually cause up to 2 million layoffs.

Would two million jobs be affected by cuts in the discretionary spending area?

re: HP@6:54AM

Is this the same news articles that say: "House Republicans’ Pledge to Cut Appropriated Programs to 2022 Level"?

I guess it depends on how you phrase the action.

The only 45% I'm running into is "The outline includes a 45 percent cut to foreign aid;" (NYT). I don't know if The State's goal of fighting to the last Ukrainian is included in this number.

Naturally, any cut of any size will be framed as THIS DISPROPORTIONATELY IMPACTS BLACK WIMMEN! since the fedgov has become something of a jobs program.

You could argue that we should simply spend more and more. It pushes the excitement of a bond apocalypse closer and gives me something to gaze in wonderment at. It'll be like having a lawnchair and a drink to watch the Yellowstone Caldera go Tango Uniform, there's a certain joy in destruction and it's damned hard to keep a culture from committing suicide once it's set it's mind to it.
