Stan Meckler had a letter in the Union this morning and it was right on the money regarding city council candidate Jim Firth. HERE is the letter. I think Meckler hit a sore spot as I see the local leftwingnut blogs like Jeff Pelline's are abuzz. His comm enters like Joe Koyote and sock puppets like Annie Fannie Fox provide good insight into the loony tunes inhabiting his blog and others.
One has to ask though why some people run for office so quickily after they move to an area. Back in the late 80's a man moved here from the Bay Area and got involved immediately in the Colfax Highway Association. The Association wanted to stop Caltrans from doing a "safety" project and widening of the Colfax Highway. Without any history that man got into a pit of discontent because there were many residents that wanted the safety project. Anyway, it was all for show and became a resume' enhancer for higher office later with the "green" crowd. It was apparent to me and others that the concern shown about the highway was really fake.
Meckler asks good questions about Firth. Firth seems to have a lot of problems with the town he chose t move to not that long ago. Just like the fellow on the Colfax Highway. But this is America and even a "community organizer" like Firth has the right to run for any office he wants. We also have the right to point out that we might not want to see people like that elected to run our city or county. Meckler and perhaps many other residents would like Firth to answer why he has not involved himself in community affairs other than becoming the head of the local leftwingnut democrat party.
Firth has told us what he wants to do with the city and hopefully the voters there will see through him and keep him from being granted their trust. A person who was a union organizer who was not "for" anything is usually not a good pick for progress. Liberals are not "progressive" as they were defined in the beginning. They are now "regulators" of almost everything people do or want to do. More rules to control you. If you like California Sacramento political and social values, or San Francisco values, then I guess Firth is your guy. But if you like Nevada County and Grass Valley values, then you can't let him or his ilk into power here.
Liberals wreak havoc on freedom. Look what they did to the County General Plan! Thousands of rules to tell you how you can use your own property. My goodness, why allow more at the city level? So read what Firth writes and put it in context of his time here in the city. Be suspicious of a liberals motives and don't take them at face value. They are all pretty sneaky and are known to fib extensively.
Read the article by Stan Meckler. Don't allow people with only their ego as their agenda to take power. Don't give them a say over your tax money and private property.
