Re: “Eureka Schedules Ceremony for Return of Duluwat Island to the Wiyot Tribe

"white militiamen?"

If they were milita, their names would be known publicly. The were a mob of murderers.

Would you call the KKK a miltia?

Re: “Eureka Schedules Ceremony for Return of Duluwat Island to the Wiyot Tribe

"(Duluwat Island (referred to locally as Indian Island)."

Wow. That is some racist BS right there.

If the "local" name is Indian island, who calls it Duluwat? The Chinese?

No, its referred to locally by both names. Unless the North Coast Journal does not consider Indigenous people to be "local" to the region.

Re: “Pot, Pot Everywhere ... Also a Hand Grenade

Ryan: some follow-up on the hand grenade would be great. Is this a sensationalistic and overblown thing, or a genuine threat? Was it a live grenade, or was it inert? Was it real, or a prop?

Re: “Fastest Route Between Eureka and Arcata Finally Determined!

As a pedestrian who lives on the South Side of Samoa blvd, I implore those who believe that 255 is faster to slow down while in town. Those 5 blocks between 101 and 255 are part of Samoa Blvd, my residential neighborhood. Many drivers seem to mistakingly believe that they are on the autobahn. All that "improvement" to Samoa blvd seems not to have affected behavior. My dog and I put our lives on the line on a daily basis, so you can drive 55 through the 35. Perhaps next time, instead of painting triangles to indicate where drivers should stop for pedestrians at F & Samoa, they should put in spikes that would pop up when these speed demons refuse to allow me enough time to safely cross with my dog. That might get the point across.

Re: “Dancing Mascots Usher in Humboldt's Wal-Mart Era (PHOTOS)

Just so we're clear Joel, I'm no Walmart fan.

I'm just not a fan of hipocracy either.

And the "there's no alternative" is the same argument folks who shop at walmart use.

Perhaps there is no alternative to Chinese electronics, but there are ways to reduce the harm. Perhaps I'm wrong in assuming that "AmericanSelfishness" didn't do something like buy used parts and DIY a computer, or look for manufacturers with verified adherance to a high code of conduct, or buy from a local reseller.

My point is, let he who is without consumerist sin throw the first stone.

Hating low-level employees and folks on a limited income is liberal bourgouise bs. Its acting like a pawn of the powers that be. Those in charge like nothing more than for the poor and middle class to fight with each other.

Hate walmart yes, its a corporation and doesn't have feelings. But don't hate the humans.

I'll ignore the troll-bait comment about lectures and ask others to do the same.

Re: “A sign

My fellow anti-walmart folks: As you discuss and debate the relative merits and flaws of Walmart in Humboldt, please direct your insults towards the rapacious corporations, not the locals who need a job or the shoppers trying to stretch a local paycheck without breaking it.

Don't let the 99% be divided and conquered. Yes, Walmarts bad, mumkay? But so is driving your gas-guzzler to the local non-union boutique coffee house that pays part-timers a walmart worthy wage/benifits package, where you sip imported coffee and soy milk while shopping amazon on your laptop. Can anyone really claim that they buy 100% local products from 100% local stores, spending only money obtained from a locally-owned employer who operates at the highest ethical standards while offering a living wage and full benifits?

If you are truly without "sin," go ahead, throw stones at walmart employees and shoppers. You really ARE a better person than the rest of us.

Everyone else, please direct your ire at the non-human corporation that threatens us all.
