Re: “Sometimes Voters Just Sit a Race Out

No Kim, this header should read:

"THE VAST MAJORITY OF POTENTIAL VOTERS ALWAYS SIT IT OUT".

Like obedient cogs dutifully protecting the multi-billion dollar stream of election ad-revenue, you will not find one mainstream "journalist" with the courage to question the legitimacy of U.S. elections that have the lowest turnout in the industrialized world.

Instead, readers are consistently mislead by countless articles like this one, always calculating election turnout by the number of registered voters and not the overwhelming majority of "POTENTIAL VOTERS", IE, the 80% that did not vote in the presidential primaries!

Reporting under-votes by the minority of participants is an irrelevant distraction.

Yes, 72% of registered voters cast their ballots last November, however, 70% of potential voters have been abstaining in local and national elections since the early 1970's!

Even a 10 year old can quickly look up voting age populations to compare to their community's voter turn-out.

Would reporting the greater reality and alerting the public help address this catastrophe?

Of course, but finding "journalism" that reports in the public interest requires a subscription to distant publications and media like "Democracy Now".

Re: “Ferndale Cowboy in National Rodeo Finals Tonight

Poor research on this story. Who is Bill Bugenig? Never met him... Billy or "B" on the other hand... I'll quote the article: "This process should be accomplished within three seconds." Really? My understanding is that the arena record is 3.0 seconds. So, ONE person in history has accomplished it in equal to three seconds. Get your facts straight, talk to some people who know "Bill", talk to some people who know the sport, be a journalist.

Re: “There Will Be Trolls

The people who edit trolls are probably the very same people who would consider any comment made by the entire voting block of Trump a troll. Roughly HALF of the US population vituperitvely dissagree with each other. Shutting down the voice of half the population because the left leaning media doesn't like it is only going to leave more surprises to unravel. Gird up your loins (pull up your big girl panties) and quit getting feelings hurt! Bring on the comments!

Re: “HumBug: I Gotta Get Out More

Where are ticks in Humboldt co. If I stay away from my yard bushes, am I ok? I don't go walking in woods or grassy areas, just street, neighborhood.
