Two weeks until election! Vote!

Seems like we have a election every two years!  Oops, yes we do.  I have really been paying attention for about 40 years now and it is my opinion that every two years we Americans have the chance to fix what is broken if we wanted to.  But alas, turnout to vote is way down and getting people motivated  to take that precious vote is harder than ever.  We will see what happens November 4 and maybe I will be pleasantly surprised.

Here we have a country, a country like none in the history of our planet, that was formed to give the individual freedom and how do many thank the sacrifice of our Forefathers?  They stay home and make excuses why they didn't vote!  My goodness, how can this be?  Is it that our education system has dumbed down our people to place little importance on the vote?  Could it be that people are just not voting because they think it doesn't matter who gets elected?  Or maybe they stay home because they would rather be eating bon-bons and watching Jerry Springer?  Maybe they think their vote is meaningless in the scope of the total system?  Maybe those things and more.

I say that people get what they deserve.  If your ass is too lazy to vote you get to pay the consequences in the form of more and more servitude.  Hell, the system lets you vote early and from your couch!  Just take the ten minutes to read the pamphlet, look and see who makes the arguments for and against the Propositions, read the mailers, read the recommendations of the party's and people you trust, take the pen and fill in the bubble!  Wow!  Golly!  You voted.  Now go back to Jerry.  All you missed was a few minutes of "My cousin and I had a baby"!

As a person who won election by 49 votes once, I can tell you scofflaws that don't vote that your vote really does count.  I survived a recount and I have to say, I watched every vote in the recount!  You voted then and your vote put me ahead and I won.  Thanks!  No matter what you think about those that run for office you must give them credit for at least putting themselves out there for you to critique.  It is no easy thing, whether you are an R or a D or any other party, to place your opinions in front of people who will like you or not.

Many offices go unfilled at the local level and in some cases there are no opposition candidates in state and Federal offices.  I blame the over response to Watergate actually.  The people wanted more rules and exposure of more personal information from a candidate.  The politicians at the time passed more convoluted and difficult forms and campaign transparency rules.  Many people said "screw that".  Even here in our little county we lost people who did not want to expose their business clients to the new scrutiny of government regulators.  They chose not to run.  Over time we have seen "less than smart" people running for office and the usurpation of our political power by the bureaucracy.

I opposed term limits back in the early 90's here in California as I said it let the people off the hook for making changes.  I have been proven correct as we see the paralysis of our state government and the rise of the unelected, appointed people manning the Commissions and Committees.  The politicians have no power to make changes as they have given it over to the alphabet soup agencies.  The state is really a mirage.  The people we elect at the state level really are toothless.  That is why they do so many stupid things that mean nothing for the health of the economy or our personal freedom.  So some in the body of the people take things into their own hands and circulate petitions to place issues on the ballot.

Over time this process has added many things to our rules and regulations as well as the State Constitution.  Now we see why.  Those elected people are just plain STUPID!  In my view, the STUPID people are those on the left.  They are those that want more rules and laws to control us.  The Republicans want less but unfortunately the "left" rules our state and probably will for a long time.  Too many goodies given away and too many sheeple taking those goodies.

So even though I sometimes get bummed out by what is going on, I still take my butt down to the polling place (where is it?  It moves all the time)  and I fill in those bubbles.  I always thank those poll workers too since they are the front line to ensure the veracity of the vote.  So you lazy ass people that make excuses why you "forgot" to vote.  Get out and take that few minutes and do the right thing, VOTE!  Or just shut up about the governance of your life.  I don't want to hear it.

  1. It's simple, vote no on Measure S and do not vote for Jim Firth or Terry Lamphier for Grass Valley City Council. All three are bad for our community for so many reasons.

  2. Patricia Smith sure is a trip. She's real wound up on Rebane's and the FUE's blog.

    The recent billboard the Measure S (the growers and exporters business protection group) put up at the entry to Grass Valley is a total lie. The Measure S folks, headed by Smith will do or say anything to try and get Measure S passed.

    Let's not forget the Grass Valley City Council candidate Jim Firth and his Nevada County Democratic Committee has endorsed Measure S and Grass Valley City Council candidate Terry Lamphier likes it too. They are clueless as to what Measure S is really about and the negative impacts it would have on our community.

    Measure S will loose and Smith and the "drug growers and exporters business protection group" will rant how the election was fixed and stolen by the Sheriff and the elections office and Elvis and little green men from Mars.

    Can't wait until all the migrant "trimmers" get the hell out of here. The Food Bank will also be happy to see them go. They will soon leave with lots of tax free cash and lots of MJ and go back to Europe and the US States they come from for trimming season.

    No on Measure S, say no to the "drug growers and exporters business protection group" that is really behind Measure S!

  3. Your analysis on voting attitudes is pretty much spot on Todd. In my humble opinion, part of the reason for a lack of voter turnout is the parties….it seems like there is not much of a difference anymore, and folks are very disgusted with Washington. It’s just downright depressing. However, that is no excuse to ignore the opportunity to vote.

    ReplyDelete

    1. I think the perception of "not much difference" is a result of the bias in the press. When a democrat says something the press, their buds, embraces and praises them relentlessly. When a conservative/republican says something the press doesn't agree with they pummel them relentlessly. So that pushes the right closer to the left but never the left closer to the right. So the perception becomes reality as the right hates that bad press.

  6. Jim Firth, Grass Valley City Candidate, former chief of staff for Leland Yee, Chair of the Nevada County Democratic Center Committee which endorsed Terry Lamphier and Firth for Grass Valley City Council is so dumb he is defending Lamphier and attacking The Union and the Sheriff on his GV candidate Facebook page!

    "Jim Firth Grass Valley, 11 hours ago

    Nevada County elections taking another side step. Why is The Union again publishing innuendo during an election without talking directly to all persons involved in the "story"? This appears to me to be an attempt by some to smear a respected and competent person who happens to be a candidate for Grass Valley City Council. Small town politics can most certainly be ugly. Let's hope that responsible people, not just the nay-sayers vote on November 4th. The Union newspaper should know better".

    Candidate Jimi Firth should have known better than to comment on what is going on with his fellow candidate and running mate Lamphier. Firth, The Union isn't "publishing innuendo", they are reporting and providing facts as they unfold.

    Grass Valley candidate Jim Firth is candidate Lamphier's running mate stated it's an "attempt by some to smear a respected and competent person who happens to be a candidate for Grass Valley City Council".

    Jim Firth is clueless to what is going on. Everyone needs to remember and spread the word that Jim Firth says Lamphier is a "respected and "competent person".

    Let's also remember Grass Valley candidate Jim Firth is also the former chief of staff for Leland Yee, a gun runner, bribe taking, corrupt elected official from San Francisco, so what else would be expect of Firth?

    Why has Lamphier disappeared? Why not one word from Lamphier? Candidate Jim Firth and some other clueless defenders of Lamphier will have a big batch of crow to eat and a lot of back peddling to do soon.

  7. A bit about sealed search warrants. Barry could provide some more insight into this too.

    Warrants aren't sealed to hide anything, and its certainly not to hide anything from the Defendant or his/her attorney, they still have a right to see the contents of the search warrant whether it is sealed or not.

    Sealed search warrants are done to protect individuals implicated in the warrant. They are usually used for mere evidence search warrants (not searching for contraband like drugs, but rather very specific things like letters, documents, computer use and such, stuff that only has meaning because of some other alleged offense.)

    For example, when they searched Michael Jackson's Neverland Ranch they sealed the search warrant because it dealt with minors and they could not release their names to the public. I'm not talking about a specific minor who was the complainant in the trial, they couldn't release the names or any other stuff connected with children.

    There's reasons for a sealed warrant. It will all come out soon. Maybe Barry can provide some more information about the most common reasons for a warrant being sealed and what type of cases are most commonly involved in a sealed warrant?

  8. Supervisor is still MIA. Supervisor Lamphier is not at the scheduled Board of Supervisors meeting that just started, just an empty chair. Looks like a number of reporters are here at the meeting, looking for Lamphier, wanting to ask him a few questions.

    Where's Waldo? Where's Lamphier?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Good question, where is Lamphier? You would think an innocent man would stand up and say so. Or, if he has done something wrong, he needs to have the character to stand up and say that! People are voting at this moment Terry Lamphier, either for you or against you. You owe the voters an explanation of your side of the story. To run away and hide is the mark of someone not worthy to hold public office.

  10. Candidate Jim Firth pulled his clueless Lamphier defense post from his GV candidate Facebook page, but one Is still posted on Firth's personal FB page. I'll bet that one goes away soon too, but 8it's preserved here forever!

    "Why is The Union again publishing innuendo during an election without talking directly to all persons involved in the "story".

  11. Where's Terry Lamphier?

    Why not one word from Lamphier? Why is Lamphier ducking the public and running from reporters? Why did Lamphier fail to attend the Board of Supervisor's meeting this morning, he's getting paid by the public to attend. What's Lamphiers excused for not attending the meeting this morning? Why has Lamphier failed to post one word about all this on his Lamphier for Grass Valley City Council facebook page or his personal facebook page?

    Considering all the media and blogging going on about this one would think someone that claims he's an honest man, a man of integrity would respond to the public about all of this vs. hiding. Jim Firth is defending Lamphier and attacking the sheriff and the media and stated this is "an attempt by some to smear a respected and competent person who happens to be a candidate for Grass Valley City Council". Grass Valley City Council candidate Jim Firth should have kept his month shut and clear of this matter.

  12. The following link takes you to the NC Dem's website. Jim Firth is their Chairman, no agenda there, right?. Check out the NCD's endorsements, which include Jim Firth and Terry Lamphier.

    Here's what they say about Terry Lamphier,

    "Terry brings his extensive experience with the local community through his work on the Nevada County board of Supervisors. He understands the challenges local governmental agencies face trying to balance budgets with decreasing revenue and increasing demand for governmental services. As Vice-Chair of the Mental Health Committee, Lamphier is proud of the statewide recognition our County has received for its innovative programs. He has also worked with the local Nevada county Biomass task force. He is also on the local Nevada County Biomass Task Force, Nevada County Broadband Task Force, Regional Housing Authority of Sutter and Nevada Counties, Nevada County Solid and Hazardous Waste Board, Palm Tree Group (“at risk youth”), Sierra Economic Development Corporation (alternate), Yuba/Bear Watershed Council, Community Collaboration on Behavioral Health Issues – Nevada County(in conjunction with Sierra Memorial Hospital) and the Grass Valley Redevelopment Successor Agency Oversight Board .

    In addition, he has served as past Grass Valley Planning Commissioner, Grass Valley Fee Committee member and member of the Del Oro Mural Committee. You can follow him on his Facebook page at Terry lamphier2014 or his website www.terryLamphier.com".

    1. Well that is certainly an impressive resume, except that he is running for a seat on the Grass Valley City Council, a city that he hates and tries to harm at every opportunity. His short stint on the GV Planning Commission ended in his being fired. Worse, he has not attended a City Council meeting to observe and learn what is happening in Grass Valley. Why wouldn't a guy who wants to get elected attend any meetings that he hopes to become a part of? Jim Firth has not attended any meetings either. Clearly these two are not running to do anything good for Grass Valley.

  14. Just posted by The Union!

    "Nevada County District 3 Supervisor Terry Lamphier is the subject of an investigation pertaining to the alleged possession of child pornography on county-owned computers, according to the Nevada County Sheriff’s Office.

    In response to a joint public records request filed by The Union and YubaNet.com, sheriff’s office officials released an Internet browser history that was allegedly discovered on Lamphier’s computer. That history included websites with photographs depicting girls between 6-10 years of age engaged in sexual acts.

    Lamphier has not been arrested or charged in connection with the investigation. The Union has been unable to reach him for comment.

  18. Grass Valley City candidate Jim Firth (Chair of the Nevada County Democratic Committee) and the NCDC is still supporting and even re-endorsing Terry Lamphier for Grass Valley City Council. This is pure insanity!

    Here's the part of the latest Union story that covers this insanity,

    "Earlier on Tuesday and prior to the after-hours press conference, Jim Firth, chairman of the Nevada County Democratic Party, said there was not enough information made public from the sealed search warrant to make any judgment about the situation.

    “As chairman of the Nevada County Democratic Party, we have endorsed Terry Lamphier for Grass Valley City Council, and we stand by that endorsement,” Firth said. “Without having the information available to decide, we don’t even know what we’re deciding.” He said the party was planning to post a statement upholding its endorsement of Lamphier later on its Facebook page.

    Firth, also a fellow candidate for Grass Valley City Council but speaking as a personal friend of Lamphier’s, said he would uphold that relationship. “I consider Terry Lamphier a friend and I will stand by him,” Firth said. “I am highly suspect that there could be an issue that would cause a problem in Terry Lamphier’s political life — that’s not who Terry Lamphier is.”

    The circular firing squad keeps shooting themselves.

  20. Patricia Smith, AKA Ms. Yes on Measure S is now posting support for Lamphier under The Union story. Lamphier is being set up she claims. Smith says Lamphier would never do anything like this. Smith is seeing one of her Measure S supporters going down in flames.

    Jim Firth and the Nevada County Dem Committee is also posting support for Lamphier, it's a set up don't you kwon, Lamphier would never do anything like this don't you know.

    Here's Patricia Smith's defense pot on The Union:

    "Patricia Smith"

    "Please suspend judging Terry's alleged actions until all the facts are in. Somethings about this smells fishy:
    the discovery of an anonymous letter, the impossibly high number of visits in one day, the lack of inappropriate visits other than one week (porn addicts are usually more consistent), using a County computer for this type of activity right before an election?? Terry has always conducted himself with integrity and honor. I hope these charges are false, but you need to take the sum total of the person into consideration. People should be presumed innocent until PROVED guilty".

  22. Apparently now Pelline is saying he talked to the Sheriff in Chico about this case before it was public. I think this shows everyone what a BSer Pelline is.

These observations were sent to me and I must say, it looks like Pelline is making all this up.

    Now Cindy Maples, Director of Hospitality House is blogging defense for Lamphier under the Union story! Why the heck would Maples post about this and why would she drag Hospitality House into this? Because Cindy Maples is a big Lamphier and Firth supporter, that's why. What a stupid thing for Cindy Maples to do. I wonder if she will delete her post soon.

    Cindy Maples can't get her facts straight and clearly can't read or understand what the Union story and Sheriff's have covered.

    Cindy Maples posted, "Here are my questions- Who besides the IT staff at the county have access to this browser history? Would it not be protocol for IT staff to report inappropriate website visits to CEO's office upon discovery? If so, and if only IT staff have immediate access to browsers history, why would this be reported in the form of an anonymous letter? If the anonymous tipster is not a county IT person, how would the letter writer be privy to the browser history? Why do these site visits occur only during a 5 day span of time as reported as it seems this would be an ongoing practice? How could someone possibly visit 2500 websites in that period of time? Has county IT staff been questioned about how a breech of information could have happened if the letter writer is not a county IT person? I'm not politically motivated by this and I understand this is an ongoing investigation, but these are the unanswered questions that stand out for me."

  26. Looks like Firth and the Nevada County Democratic Committee wants to go down in flames their buddy Lamphier. This from the Union story today:

    “As chairman of the Nevada County Democratic Party, we have endorsed Terry Lamphier for Grass Valley City Council, and we stand by that endorsement,” Firth said. “Without having the information available to decide, we don’t even know what we’re deciding.” He said the party was planning to post a statement upholding its endorsement of Lamphier later on its Facebook page.

    Hey Firth give your buddy Lamphier a call and ask him about all this and get back to us. Problem is Lamphier has disappeared, not one word from him, no one can find Lamphier, he was a no show at the BOS meeting Tuesday, not one post from Lamphier on his facebook pages. This is telling,

  34. Exactly Todd. First TL likely has a password to access the computer. Second, if the County has a security system one could check the arming or disarming codes. Third, if the County has security cameras, I would be checking that out. If TL sent emails during the login periods, one could check that too. All you need is reasonable doubt. The investigators need to nail down eveything...and they likely will.

He needs to come forward and declare his innocence and fight the charges, or admit his guilt, take his punishment, and let's move on.

      In addition, many people here want to believe the best in people, which creates a culture for abuse by the few people with nefarious political motives and agendas. They may be smiling at people on the one hand, but they also may operating behind the shadows, pulling political strings.

    6. I heard the bigboy was whining about anonymous attacks and he is just beside himself the Union and the conservative blogs aren't listening to him. Jeeze. When I was running the opponents and their pals had numerous whisper campaigns against me and my family. The Union was in the bag for my opponents and I still won! I never had one positive story in the local paper when I was running because the Editor at the time disliked me. I am proof one can overcome that negativity with hard work. Pelline is just a whiner and a censor and he appears to have an audience of three like minded nuts, one from Truckee. Too funny!

    1. I swear. I was Googling "kittens," not "kiddies." I did that a thousand times before I realized my mistake. Next thing you know they are knocking my door down. Thankfully, the FUE has my back.
