Evidently, conservatives don't believe there is good in the world.

Re: “New Baby Names

Before my son was born, his nickname was "Poindexter". Truly a classic.

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.

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.

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

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!

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

Jennifer Fumiko Cahill: You seem to have a persistent theme of attacking white identity in your writings. I get the sense from your writing that doing so makes you feel empowered.

If you're serious about tackling the problems of racism and bigotry, I would suggest you start by taking a closer look at your own biases and prejudices.

A good place to start is to ask yourself if you would ever deconstruct and attack black, asian, hispanic, or jewish identity the way you do with whites.

Also, consider what the consequences would be if you did.

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

Years ago he was against Safeway being open 24 hours because it would make people less organized with their time. It was very unsettling to him to know folks could just go to the grocery store anytime day or night without a set schedule in place, or complete shopping list too, I suppose. I think he needs the real problems of a much larger city to deal with than itsy Bitsy artsy Fortuna....you know, The Friendly City

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

Why is Mr.Glaser allowed to represent the people if he hates people. Muslims are Americans, is he aware that it it perfectly legal for a Muslim person to become our president if they are an American citizen. I am a white male christian, and have lived in Humboldt for 41 years(my entire life). The only ugliness in Humboldt is the attitude of people like Mr.Glaser. Grow up.

"This is a personal insult to me," he said. "It says the same thing as a mosque being built by the Muslims." Um, your xenophobia is showing, Mr. Glaser.
