Re: “A Word about the 'Threat' of White Supremacy

R. Putnam,
It's unfortunate you equate white supremacy and the Klan, arguably the worst among us, with white folks and their cultures in general. Maybe look into that. But you are correct that we should all look into our own biases and prejudices. It's part of why I interrogate my own racial privilege and assumptions and incorporate them where it makes sense. As far as attacking black, Asian, Latino and Jewish culture and identity, there are more than enough people working on that already.

Re: “KEKA Pulls Out of Truckers Parade, Asks Others to Step Up

Realistically, the amount of fuel required probably only cost a few Middle East children's lives considering 18 years of U.S. oils wars...

And now the climate change refugees...caused by carbon...

At what point do we say "ENOUGH"???

Re: “Welcome to NCJ Burger Week!

What person other than a professional food critic has enough time to dine in at a restaurant 3-4 times a day for 9 days in a row to be able to try all 30 of these delicious burgers! Especially when some are only available for lunch or dinner only. NCJ ,please make take out available if you realistically want people to try every burger and vote the best of the bunch. Thanks

Re: “Taiko Swings up to Humboldt

Know your history.

WWII, and most others, arose from people easily manipulated from their desperate poverty. Resurgent protests by torch-bearing, right-winger racists would return to obscurity tomorrow if they had living wage jobs.

Tens of millions of U.S. families are facing unprecedented debt from corrupt shortages manipulated by government/industry collusion divesting in affordable housing, healthcare, and education.

Until more Americans go downtown to end local participation in this corruption, (regaining control from industry), Trump's "base" will remain secure and history's sad repetition is guaranteed.

Eureka and Humboldt County's little "Trumps" still call the shots.

Re: “Welcome to NCJ Burger Week!

Mazzoti's burger looked good, but their burger wasn't available after 2 p.m. and they didn't advertise that fact. I was disappointed, but didn't stay for a more expensive dinner. Happily enjoyed one at Plaza Grill instead.

Re: “Pole Fight: Fortuna Art Installation Draws Councilmember's Ire

Dean Glaser is a well known nut. He picks fights and rants about anything that offends his extreme right wing views. It's hard to understand why he's been on the city council for so long, except it keeps him busy. He's an embarrassment to fortuna.

I personally love seeing anything positive in our community. Whether it is hand painted utility boxes or a post such as this, we all need to see positive things so we wont forget what our world should be. Unified in every way.

Re: “Pole Fight: Fortuna Art Installation Draws Councilmember's Ire

Anyone ever seen the front of Dean Glasers yard?
Its a total dumpster.
When we lived in Fortuna, before moving out of the state a year ago, Dean lived just 2 blocks over.
His house was a vile roach motel of boats and parts, unkept landscaping and overgrown bushes. Could hardly see the front of his house through the unkept crap.
He works on boats out front of his house all the time, either running a business or I dont know.
His house is its own statement. His statement says I dont give a crap about what my house looks like or what the neighbors think of me, Im doing it anyways.
I have known Dean for 30 years, as he use to work with my ex at Safeway and he has always been a bit of an odd critter. He was a SCOPE officer for a while which surprised me, then took an active role on the Fortuna City council. No clue how that happened but its just one more reason Im glad Im gone. ( miss my friends and I do miss Fortuna and the area )
Anyways, to me his yard is rather offensive, not to mention that on satellite view, hes constructed buildings on every square inch of his entire property and ignored every single legal setback law on the books. Hes got sheds and buildings 1 ft from the fence and his other buildings look like theyre touching and overhanging their fence. Its nuts.
He could care less about the pole, it just gave Dean yet another reason to bitch and moan about something so he feels like hes got a voice and to draw attention to himself.
If he cared about the looks or the message of something, he would start by fixing his own house to start with. Its one of the biggest eyesores in the city.
Miss you Humboldt. Wish the state didnt screw itself up so bad that almost every member of my family fled the state in exile due to ridiculous laws and radical taxation, forcing us to take our 2 businesses elsewhere.
As far as the conservative comment by HumboldtTricks above, he may be a conservative on paper, but the Dean I know is not conservative at all. Hes rather liberal on all fronts, but thats neither here nor there. Regardless of personal choice of politics, this is just wrong.
PS: Trying to throw in a political bash on a post like this against conservatives is just sheer nonsense and what Ive come to expect from the bitter left.

Re: “We've Come to Prefer They/Them Pronouns

Hey Jennifer: as a fellow journalist, I applaud this move! But may I humbly suggest you drop the word "prefer" or "preferred" in favor of "use" or "uses." My pronouns are "she" "her" and "hers." And I don't just prefer those be used, I expect that everyone use them to show me the respect I'm due. Best wishes to you and your team.

Re: “Pole Fight: Fortuna Art Installation Draws Councilmember's Ire

Hey Glaser: I guess you don't like LIBERTY either. I'm sure you are too ignorant to understand that the word "liberal" and "liberty" are derived from the same Latin word "liber," which means to be free (or literally "the free one"). Ignorance, racism, xenophobia, and hatred drive modern-day Republicans to their insane and dangerous ideals.

Glaser display the typical, pervading Republican trait: never be positive or support anything good or uplifting. If it isn't hateful and ugly, Republicans oppose it. He is a truly disgusting example of a human being.

Glaser sounds like a dimwit. Because of these comments, I want to let the city install one in my yard. And I'll try to attend the next council meeting to express support of this project too!
