Anyone familiar with New Zealand knows it is an ultra-conservative, nationalistic, right-wing religious and intolerant nation. Its jails are full of kids that smoked pot. Travel from Humboldt County and they will tear your baggage apart upon arrival and departure.
Governor Brown is elated to have MJ to focus upon instead of leadership.
There's few other explanations for the level for concern over 8 percentage points of IQ when the largest growth in jobs are part-time, temporary, uninsured, poverty wages, where a "public" university costs a year's salary in tuition, where there's insufficient affordable housing, healthcare and public services, in effect, the reason so many youths are filling jails, emergency rooms, rehab centers, committing suicide and yes...smoking pot...
"I look forward to working with them to achieve the council’s goals of excellent customer service.".
Once we elect a council that understands we are tax paying residents, not merely "customers", we can catch up to Arcata as this county's "strongest retail base".
This man is not a prisoner of war, he is a prisoner of greed. Did he think that the laws of other states have no teeth simply because he is a Californian? He was in So. D because there is big money in the oil extraction business there. Where is the environmental high ground here?
Sorry. can't get tears for him. He is where he is because of the very clear and intentional choices he made. Stop with this story, it reeks of insincerity. Some old story, only the guy is in a band you like. Please, move on.
'Im sorry excuse my ignorance, who stole what from were,and why?
Mercer-Fraser: Hah! I'm glad the judge righteously slapped down your injunction. You put your greed and money-worshipping above a small town's water supply. That makes you scumbags of the highest order. You are pieces-of-shit. You put money-hoarding above the good of the community. Your actions indicate that you are obviously greedy, fascist, anti-American TRAITORS and it is time you were treated as such. You need to go the fuck away.
There are only three exits from the scenic byway: the south end at Prairie Creek, the north end at the 101 junction, and the scenic overlook exit. Wouldn't it be cost effective to set up three cameras and record any exiting vehicles nightly? These poachers are clearly local, so finding a match for what has to be a large truck would not be all that difficult, would it? Obviously stopping these crimes by closing the road will mitigate any damage, but for the cost of three cameras it still seems like a good investment. If they have the nerves to do this at night, who's to say they wouldn't do it on a cold rainy day when the park is empty.
I think its only fair.Even if Cal Electro can't match the big boys with its resume of past work,we're not building a space shuttle here. It's replacing an existing water system to a small community. I've been in building for 30yrs. plus in the county, and it's always been a dilemma to me that; trying to land a project, that might be a bit out of the scope of my past work some how disqualifies me for the work as a company, where do you think the experience comes from ?I could go on and on but I hope you get my point. I just hope Mercer Fraiser quits wasting these limited funds
Great to see them at home doing their thing. Years ago my wife and I went on a drive out to Shelter Cove to see the sunset and as we sat in the car looking out at the sea along came the small herd of elk that ranged through there and they trotted out to the edge of grass and watched the sunset just like us, in contemplation of it and we both moved on after the sun set.
I think calling him a Prisoner of War is a farce, I grew up in the pot game, that's why I got the fuck out of it and got legit work from day one of independence, not to say I haven't ever taken a trim job but I refuse to lock myself into pot-grow dependance. It is highly illegal and dangerous for several reasons.
It is also irresponsible to put your family in that position especially if you have children. Look at the predicament his wife is now in, angry and alone from poor decisions, misdirected anger based on the article but from poor choice nonetheless. I was a true Pot POW, stuck in the miasma of criminal behavior to fund our family life, no choice in the matter as I was a child and we were "Mom and Pop" so it really wasn't worth the risk, problem was that once they became involved in that game it was hard to extract oneself out of it.
Why it was morally irresponsible was not because of the whole "it's a plant, it should not be illegal" bullshit that Pot farmers say to themselves to justify their trips to Cabo, Uggs and Yoga Pants, Escalades and Hummers and whatever other ill gotten gains, but because if caught it can irreversibly damage the people whom you actually care about, sure the vacations and cool stuff is alluring but do you really want to leave your children without parents if you go to prison? Not to mention being a positive role model who shows their children that a "free ride" mentality is not OK?
It IS just a plant and should not be a punishable offense but plain and simple you are selling it as a controlled substance and profiting from a black market endeavor, that makes you a fucking criminal plain and simple no matter what drug or how harmless it may be. Legalize the shit and be done with it, then go ahead and grow to your hearts content, you won't hear one complaint from me but don't give me this song and dance that we have to feel sorry for someone who knew he did wrong and accepted the risk, he lost plain and simple, 5 years is a light sentence considering the "devil weed" mentality the government has about MJ....
Finally a good coverage of last nights meeting, if briefer than I would have liked. I've read the T-S and LoCo coverage and was underwhelmed so thank you Judy Hodgson. The only quibble I would have is a very minor one. You say the angry public were trail advocates and while that has an element of truth to it most of the many comments were about far broader issues than trails, many, if not most, were an expression of disgust and anger at the bulk of the commissioners and the overall changes they've made to the GPU.
For the record, is my understanding that Alan Bongio really was ill that day.
I assume everyone else was just taking their marching orders from King Lee U. as always.
I got a call from Jared Huffman at 3:00 a.m. the other night. There was this voice speaking that woke me up and I thought at first it was the telephone answering machine but it wasn't. It was coming from my computer! Somehow Huffman's people got into my computer through some virus type software to turn something on without me touching anything. It was scary! How did these guys do it?
I won't be voting for this guy and warn others away from people who are invading our homes without our permission.
