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

This attempt at satire only reveals how ignorant the author is.

Don't write about things you don't understand.

Re: “31 Points About Mass Shootings

32. This violence, racism, white supremacy and their protests would quickly return to obscurity if adherents had access to living wage jobs.

How do we so quickly forget the rise of Nazism from people's economic desperation in the 1930's?

Like the forehead cast-markings (and violence) in India/Pakistan, visit one of America's numerous dollar stores, discount groceries, pawn shops, rent-to-own, or Walmart and look closely at American's teeth.

Re: “Affordable Housing 'Outside the Box'

Yes it is a matter of national and political will. The thought of not turning a profit is unthinkable in our capitalist system. The Planning Dept. is seeing that "business as usual" will not solve our housing crisis or help the homeless off the streets. Thank you, Fred Weis, for pointing out the obvious : where we put our attention and where we allocate our funds makes a huge difference.

Re: “'Passive and Cynical'

Winkler needs to do his homework, or visit some of the decommissioned wind farms littering the deserts.

However, consuming one-ton of jet fuel per person (round trip) to attend a climate conference for a few days, (the same fuel used annually by an average U.S commuter), illustrates a tragic failure of education...and imagination.

Re: “Affordable Housing 'Outside the Box'

Until our elected and appointed leadership stops making matters worse, piecemeal policies addressing the multiple crises related to housing will never be enough.

Taxidude: Yes, this is satire. I am not actually David Duke and Spike Lee's The Blakkklansman does not portray the Ku Klux Klan as inclusive.

Learn to code: Ignorance of racism and those who would do harm to me and mine would be a luxury, but it's one I don't have.

Re: “332 Reinforcements

Maybe Mr. Gianninni is unaware that "The (vast) majority of people in America NEVER VOTE!

And when they do turnout in larger numbers, (thanks to the corrupt developer Mr. Gianninni elected president), representatives like Huffman will be celebrated for attempting to do their job by impeaching a crook.

Re: “'A Must'

I really wish people would stop uncritically posting links to climate-denying front groups and websites that ultimately link back to the Koch brothers and their circle of influence. These anti-wind sites are not run by grassroots environmentally concerned people; they are run by climate deniers and people who benefit from the fossil fuel status quo.

For example, is run by climate deniers with links to Master Resource:…

And what is the Master Resource blog, which Adam Canter cited several times in his argument on LCO against the wind farm? This will give you an idea:…

Lisa Linowes and the Wind Action site:……

And who is behind "Watts Up With That"?

Etc, etc, etc...

Re: “'Crippling'

Perhaps Humboldt County should determine WHY they have "We have the highest rate of addiction, the highest rate of death by firearm, the highest suicide rate in California", and try to find answers within our county, rather than simply requesting help.

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

I seriously hope this is an attempt at sarcasm and satire. The ideolgy presented in this article is pathetic at best and the problem of racism and dismissal of racism in this country is far reaching. Yes it is a problem in our society and the current leaders of our country are making it much, much worse.

Re: “'A Must'

Thanks Ellen and Ryan, for the support for the wind project. There are many lies that the anti wind people use, here is one.
Wind takes about 6-8 months to pay off the energy/carbon too make the unit including installation and shipping. Here is but one sourced report as to energy payback.…
And the new machines use less materials per watt making them more energy efficient, reducing their co2 content and payback time from even that 6 months.

Wind works.

Re: “'A Must'

Be careful what you wish for. Huge 600 foot tall Industrial Wind Turbines are a moneymaker for absentee land owners and billionaire investors. They are a disaster for bats, birds, insects, forests, groundwater, and people who have the misfortune to be living up to twenty miles away. The carbon dioxide released building and installing them is huge and not offset by the electricity produced for ten years. Based on decades of experience around the world they are not a solution. Rooftop solar is decentralized, unobtrusive, quiet, doesn't kill the local flora and fauna, makes local jobs, is user friendly, neighbor friendly, and best of all it gets paid off and your electric bill goes down to almost zero.

Re: “31 Points About Mass Shootings

Just a quick question: When's the last time you read about a knife-wielding suspect stabbing 36 people in 30 seconds? Sure, people are going to be violent. But it's the availability of military style weapons that allows a violent person in the United States to shoot dozens of people in half a minute. In less time than it took me to write this, a man in Dayton killed nine people and wounded 27 others.

Re: “31 Points About Mass Shootings

It has been my contention for some time that media might have a positive influence if someone would start a campaign reaching out to those disaffected dangerous folks letting them know they are actually ill. No, it would not stop all the violence, but if it prevented one attack that would be worth the effort. Tell the guy sitting in his basement tweaking his weaponry, imagining himself as a cultural hero striking back at his oppressors that he needs serious help and his actions will end badly. Once in a while it might prevent an attack from ever occurring and therefore save not only his victims, but himself as well. It is something that can be enacted without legislation, permission, or rancor from any political group. (any that opposed it would paint themselves as mentally ill, letting us know who they are.) It should be inexpensive and popular. The message is simple and obvious. "Wanting to hurt people you do not know is sick, and needs to be treated."

Re: “31 Points About Mass Shootings

I have issues with this because people can us other means of hurting someone AKA stabbings.

Re: “Why I Support Terra-Gen's Wind Project

This recent fire, caused by an industrial wind turbine, was in an area where in could be fought and extinguished. Very unlike the rugged windy forested mountains on the Humboldt Coast.…

Re: “'Passive and Cynical'

Simply put, every kilowatt-hour of electricity generated from a wind farm connected to the Humboldt area grid will reduce the generation of roughly the same amount of electricity from the gas-fired PG&E Humboldt Bay Generating Station at King Salmon because the Humboldt grid is largely a closed system with little capacity to import (or export) power to or from outside of Humboldt.

Wind turbines in southern Humboldt County, or offshore of Humboldt, will absolutely reduce the carbon footprint of Humboldt in a substantial and direct way.

Re: “Green Your Weed

Pre roll packaging plays a key role in advertising the brand of the product. These packaging boxes are customized in unique shape and design with color printing and logo printing as per to the demand.
