Re: “Trimmigration Sting

Andy obviously does not believe in the Bill of Rights.
Here in America we have freedom of movement and this piece of human refuse has no business trying to intimidate people out of their rights in fact he is actually committing a crime. He has proven he has no respect for First Amendment rights and any law enforcement officer unwilling to stand behind the Constitution should be fired immediately.

Re: “Bike This Way

Andy's department is too busy hassling pot smokers, bicyclists and killing kids to actually make us any safer. Send the police state a message and vote no on Q.

Re: “Eureka Will Cease Prayer Breakfasts, Pay For Lawsuit

I am Glad that the city is cutting its losses early. We are going to need the money to defend the city against the multi-million dollar lawsuit the murderers on the police force have gotten us into.

Re: “How Much Did EPD's Free Truck Cost?

Armored personnel carriers should be given to the public. Murhl's Thugs have shot down a hell of a lot more people then cops have been shot. His crew has murder so many people in the last 10 years it is the public that needs some Safety. Thousands of dollars that could have been spent creating housing for the people that the brown-shirts reek their havoc on.

Re: “Arkley vs. Bridges: Two Perspectives on How to Treat the Needy

Dear All,

Our County and City, on land violently seized from the Wiyot, Yurok, Hupa, Mattole, and Wailaki, has been taken over by greedy, selfish, short-sighted developers, “businessmen,” real estate agents and bankers. Many of the policies being pursued and enforced by our County and City governments are to please the likes of gluttonous, predatory, exploitative, spoiled brat Arkley, and much of our tax money goes to Rob Arkley's projects (parking lots, etc) so that he and his pompous, money-grubbing, spoiled family can stay rich. Rob and Cheri Arkley actually encourage policies that violate human rights, regularly use political bribes, and helped the City secretly bring in Walmart to come here and stay here. Arkley's food, showers, clothes, and many perks, decadent well beyond the means of the average resident of the U.S., all come from the exploitation of poor people worldwide. Arkley found Louisiana attractive due to the grave tragedies that Hurricane Katrina brought to many thousands of people, and has used lax restrictions on corporations and free-trade policies to exploit the people and land in Louisiana and to pursue capitalist ventures that threaten life right here. Clearly, his support of the George Bush right is wrong. Arkley wants Humboldt to be open as a corporate Mecca, and we all will pay the price, not Arkley. We all will pay with our lives, our poverty, the destruction of the rivers, forests, our children's futures, small ethical businesses, and our culture in general. Arkley and his 1% ilk are completely un self-sustaining, relying on third world peoples' (here and abroad) to do all their work; deal with their toxic waste; build their roads; pay for their politicians; make their restaurant food; deal with their excrement, toxic supplies and garbage; park their vehicles; slave to make their clothes and cars; school their children; pay their corporate subsidies; grow their food; slaughter their meat; and fight in their politicians' wars, as if every rich-man luxury is “our” responsibility. Health and environmental issues arise from Arkley's outrageously spoiled destructive behavior, and health and environmental issues will arise for generations to come from the plan he supports to expand Highway 101 through ancient redwoods, and from his influence on the City of Eureka, the County of Humboldt, and the North Coast Co-op. The general public is not comfortable with Arkley's dangerous antics, while he and the politicians he funds, attempt to privatize EVERYTHING that should belong to, and be enjoyed by, all of us.

The frog in the boiling water will jump out before its end, and the people of this County and City (and the world) will rid ourselves of nasty, inhumane greedy behaviors from the likes of Arkley before those behaviors destroy everything. It has gotten to the point where everybody knows that rich bankers and developers (i.e. Arkley) are a huge problem, but it takes time (while we struggle to survive) and persistence to once and for all unburden ourselves of bankers and developers who care for no one and nothing, only for control and the dollar. All of our local small businesses are being negatively impacted by Arkley's ventures. It is difficult to attract people to Eureka while Arkley and the politicians he supports keep changing the rural landscape to an impoverished Walmart city. Who wants to interview for a job that can't even pay for an apartment? Why should we continue to allow Arkley, a greedy business owner/banker who wants to own the beautiful area here, to turn it all into developed real estate and trash it for his avaricious self-interest?

I think that it is time for us to get together and move on our consensus on how to stop Arkley's attempt to control our home and kick many out of theirs. Specifically, I would like to expose the politicians that can be cut to reduce the number of crooked deals and long term problems they create for the people here. Arkley does not consider it dire that people of all ages go without food, shelter, water, healthcare, education, basic necessities, and freedom from harassment, but instead Arkley believes his private businesses and a few rich households are all that matter. We would all be better off without the crime, environmental damage and costs borne by the public that Arkley causes. It is easy to see the heavy negative impacts of Arkley's program of rich-spoiled-Walmart- George Bush- war-lovin'- develop-every-inch intrusions on local business and quality of life for the community.

Folks, let’s take our area back and get rid of our elected officials that invite and perpetuate overall negative impacts on all of us by making deals to “help” Rob Arkley, and ignoring the needs of almost all local people. I have no doubt that the benefits to all of us by rejecting Arkley's schemes will include a loosening of the yoke of poverty from around our necks so we can share dignified healthy lives for generations to come.

Arkley and his plans cause problems that are some of the most pressing issue that our area faces.
