Interesting chatter over on Lost Coast
Jared will be on KHUM at 10:30 am Friday
I remember back when Patty Berg's term was in the State Senate getting excited about the idea of choose who our next Senator would be and thinking about all of the local politicians and community leaders who might throw their hats into the ring, and then about a week later I was informed that "they" has already "selected" our next Senator and it would be a woman named Pat Wiggins. At the time I know I felt disappointed but I also remember thinking that, "well these folks probably made a good choice" for us.
Well never mind how that turned out, the fact is I should have been indignant about being "told" who MY representative was going to be!!! Never again, damn it. I've spent my life being proud to be an American, living in a democracy. I've voted in every election since the year I turned 18, even the ones that are just for school board seats and I want to have a say in this, what is arguably the biggest electoral opportunity we've had in Humboldt in over 12 years. I want to meet each of the candidates and shake there hand and have them answer MY questions (after all, we're not that big of a county) and frankly I resent this idea that someone is going to anoint someone to this office. Mike, Wes, Patty, et al, maybe if you'd waited until March or April I'd feel differently, but to have made these endorsements seven months before the election is frankly insulting, and out of principal I'll be voting for anyone BUT your "chosen one".
Alex would have made a great British loyalist. Not wanting to be inconvenienced by any pesky revolutionaries upsetting the status quo.
Fred, you nothing of liberty.
F**ck Them, I should be allowed to stand there!!!
I don't really care what allegedly did or did not happen last night, but right now I being told that I can not stand on the lawn.
So it is MY RIGHTS that the EPD are violating.
Do you think no one should be allowed to go to Giants' game because someone put a guy in coma? Do you think Penn State should be closed because the students rioted, burning and overturning a news van (they were upset their coach was fired)?
The EPD is in the wrong but it looks like it's going take legal action unless the County Board of Sups step up the protect our civil liberties.
Fred you are some type of civil libertarian (meaning non at all)!!!
The EPD is not just prohibiting "camping" they are not allowing protesters to stand on the lawn at all, day or night.
Just come clean and admit that you a reactionary conservative which is fine with Big Brother running our lives (as long as they keep taxes low and don't regulate industry)!
