A place we can discuss, bloviate and debate issues and topics of interest.
More telling about Pelline in the comments to his article, he advocates for bullies who seek to cause self-censorship of speech. I have never in my life seen someone so arrogant and narcissistic. This same person actually believes that he has all of the solutions to all of our problems...and refuses to listen to anyone else's opinions but instead seeks limit speech by intimidation and bullying. He is a genuinely disgusting individual.
It is interesting how the dynamics of these blogs work. I met him once for thirty seconds when Jeff Ackerman introduced me at the office. I could tell in that thirty seconds that this guy was full of himself. He is not 1/2 the man Ackerman is. Anyway, over time he and I have sparred on the blogs along with a few of his close liberal pals. They are a very isolated group, maybe "hermit like" with flying fingers at the keyboards and with bad attitudes.So now we have another dynamic. RL Crabb who has no use for me or Pelline has done a parody on us and the blogosphere. Yet Crabb does not rtell anyone he is also in the middle of all this with his narcissistic attitudes. I am honored that Crabb and Pelline have moderated me off their blogs since they are both the same kind of person. They dish out their crapola but can't take it. Anyway, Crabb and Pelline are just brothers under the skin but are both so narcissistic they can't admit it. What a hoot!
Pelline was a cyber bully before it became politically incorrect to be one. In fact, he may have a patent on it.
I wonder if this is why he was fired? Bad editing, bad person, bad employee?
He has sent me an email sayiong why did I not say he corrected the error. So, he confirmed he actually made the error. We all make mistakes but unlike him, we forgive and move on.
My response thru email was "you know why". Actually, I am using the same reason Pelline can't stop posting every chance he gets that Barry Pruett lost every precinct. I guess I will be using this headline for a long time. LOL!
Yes. Yes Jeff Pelline. It is not about free speech, but about extremism, and you are correct. It is the extremism of those who seek to censor speech of others by law or by bullying. Let's stop people from saying things that YOU deem extreme like you did at The Union (and likely why you are no longer employed there). Either you know that such a position is the beginning of the "slippery slope" and you simply desire censorship or you are too stupid to understand the ending place that your silly opinion leads our free society. Wow. Amazing stupidity.Maybe Charlie Chaplin should not have played Hitler in his controversial condemnation of the dictator. LOL.
Pelline is one sick, sad, twisted, egocentric, obsessed, arrogant, obese, narcissistic stalker. Betting he had no friends in school, was shunned and picked on by the other kids and always got picked last for any team sports. His obsession and endless childish rants against The Union newspaper and Barry Pruett provide a clear picture of how lost this guy is. Must be embarrassing for his family and friends, if he has any. Bob Crabb's "Cartman cartoon" about this guy is 100% spot on.
Jeff rants about The Union outsourcing printing, which makes financial sense. Where does he print his own "how to stuff your face" rag? It's sure as heck isn't printed locally. And when Pelline was at the Chronicle I think it was losing somewhere around a million dollars PER WEEK and is still bleeding money.
His ilk has outsourced young families from Nevada County.
You guys should really lighten up on Pelline. Much as the North Korean dictator, you have no idea the extremes which he will go to save the motherland (Bay Area wacky liberals).
Cartman the FUE is a massive, egocentric, arrogant, narcissistic "hippo-crite". LOL, LOL, LOL
Well he does appear to be his own "circle of stupid". LOL!
I'm the FUE and in case you didn't know, I hate The Union newspaper and I rant about it non stop like a little child.
Another Pelline rant about The Union outsourcing its printing to the Sac Bee, which Pelline subscribes to. I wonder if he knows that The Bee outsourced ad production to India several years ago and if you call Circulation at The Bee the phones are answered in the Philippines? Those moves cost a LOT of jobs, but Jeffy likes to pick and choose. If his former "Big City" paper in SF would have outsourced its printing it might have cut into its tens of millions of dollars in annual losses from union labor contracts that bled and continue to bleed the company. But that would require some actual journalism on his part, which is far different than reminding us every day that he used to be an award winning journalist. Now he seems to be reduced to a very large mouthpiece whose monotone is really quite boring.
Yep, I'm the FUE and I'm obsessed with bashing The Union endlessly like a ranting child. If anyone dares disagrees with me I bash them too within minutes because I monitor the web and all those that I hate 24/7. I rant about The Union non stop like a little child.
The latest news from Big Boy's former San Francisco rag he so proudly uses as a model for award winning journalism: http://www.realclearpolitics.com/lists/top_10_newspapers_in_trouble/san_francisco_chronicle.htmlIt ranks number 5 on the Top 10 list of metro papers on the brink of collapse.The Chronicle's days will be over long before the final edition of The Union is printed. It lost its credibility when it sent Hollywood actor Sean Penn, armed with a high school diploma, to Iran disguised as a "journalist." I think they provided Penn with his own series of articles published over several days. They never disclosed why anyone would give two shits about Sean Penn's views of world events, or what made him qualified to contribute, but that's the new brand of "news" reporting. Totally objective, of course.
Pelline... "The experts who rant were never hired by a major newspaper...Po-Dunk..."He defines major by population, not relevance. But when your ego is the size of an elephant's ass, size matters.What keeps him in this "po-dunk" town? Can't sell his house for what he bought it for, or does he simply prefer to waddle his way through Po-Dunk as the town's resident "former major league somebody." Reminds me of Ron Burgandy. "You might not know it, but I used to be kind of a big deal..."
Yes I'm the FUE and I hate The Union newspaper (my former employer). I hate and attack anyone, anytime, any place that dare supports or likes The Union. Say or post anything that in anyway says anything nice about The Union and you will feel my scorned, wrath and rants!
Jeff Pelline, Nevada County's own version of Al Sharpton. The "I hate white males, even though I am one", hater.
Oh my....the feelings they hurt....!As for our local right-wing nuts, they gleaned on to an unflattering picture of me at the banquet (cropping out my son and David), and George Rebane happily let one of his nastiest “commentators” run it on his blog to score political points, complete with a few nasty comments.It would seem that you are a perfect example of American Journalism as it is practiced these days jeffy. That is, generally not within miles of what actually happened. The image of your son was cropped out because you had another one of your episodes...you know.... where you waddle off to your attorney to help craft another sternly worded letter to someone who has offended you! In this instance the presence of your son in the photo was something, "that our family won't tolerate", if I recall correctly! Second, the photo was not used to score "political points" as you claim. It was used to mock you personally. In similar fashion to how almost all of your public photos are used. I don't see why you get so wet eyed....you call Todd stupid and f fascist, you refer to me as some sort of political operative (a notion simultaneously offensive, inaccurate, and an example of high comedy)....you tell Russ Steele that he's "too old"....you say Crabb lacks talent! You insult with the best of them jeffy!None of us run to the Sheriff to tell on you....!As far as "nasty comments", after the photo was posted on Todds blog, the suggestion was made that perhaps a little less time "breaking bread" and a little more time spent on the Stair-Master might be beneficial and enable you to spend more time with the family you cherish so! Sometimes an idea can be a good one even if it comes from a source you don't like.Toodles!
Fish, I rercall that Pelline has a Favebook which has his kid on the jeadline. I pointed that out when he cried about the pic here. He is just a whiny putz.
In which a fat man attempts to return serve.....CABPRO founder Todd Juvinal’s “blog” — AKA a mudpit for the hard-right political extremists and their nasty anonymous friends — likes to mock the Bay Area (or the “wacky liberal Bay Area,” as an anonymous commenter put it this week). Hard-right political activist Barry Pruett, who ran for clerk recorder and lost in every precinct, mocked “San Francisco values” during his campaign. Pruett also regularly comments there.We mock "Than Franthisco Valuths" because there is no such thing! Nor are there Sacramento values.....Reno values.....Seattle values...New York values. There are traits but values require smaller venues. Why the obsession over the Clerk-Recorder....are you so petty because those stakes are so small. Looks to me like Barry has recovered and moved on....to quote the "thage of the theirra" "You should let it go!
Pelline thinks a electoral defeat is somehow a continuous mock opportunity. He does not understand the process and he truly looks like a fool for obsessing on Pruett. I know many people in our community who truly like Barry and his lovely wife and kids. I have yet to find a "non sock puppet" who like Pelline.I also appreciate Pelline's reminder to all that I am the founder of CABPRO. Hell, I even named it! It is still going tday and hopefully will last for a long time. It has lasted a lot longer than Pelline's tenure at the "po-dunk" local paper. What a hoot!
My favorite line from Pelline's most recent drivel. Old timers are nasty to newcomers in town. Right. Old timers are only nasty to newcomers who try to remake the place we live by attempting to destroy everything that the community is in an effort to make something different-something like the wacky liberal Bay Area. Just nasty to that person - Pelline. Please don't try to extrapolate from the hatred and loathing directed towards you a general hatred of newcomers. You Pelline are the only newcomer we can't stand.
We love those that come to stay and I cannot recall anyone in my lifetime here that people can'r stand as much as they do Pelline. His ye;;pw journalism and nasty personality have turned even the newcomers off. Instead of making nice to us he decided to kick us in the teeth. Then we respond (begrudgingly) and he claims "victim-hood". A typical liberal!
Jeff Pelline- Nevada County's Al Sharpton! I love it! So descriptive of the most hated man in the region.
"the most hated man in the region"... SWEET! LOL!
News flash! The FUE dictates that if Nevada County wants to survive and prosper it must learn from and become Oakland! This shows how lost the FUE really is and his true agenda. The facts and data about "how wonderful" Oakland are not pretty. What's driving Oakland? That would be massive gentrification and displacement of multigenerational locals by high paid high tech workers that are commuting to high tech jobs across the bay. The long time locals are screaming and moving away, they are being priced out of the real estate, locals can't afford to rent or buy due to the massive influx of out of area high tech workers looking for a place to live in the Bay area. Add in Oaksterdam and the pot trade Oakland is known for. What's the poverty, crime and un-employment rate in Oakland? The FUE is clueless, it would be nice if he packed up and moved to Oakland.
The FUE dictates that if Nevada County wants to survive and prosper it must learn from and become Oakland! Okay then "Side Shows" and a high murder/gun crime rate!Got it! Check!Actually though I think you nailed it with your reference to gentrification and tech workers being pushed out from SF due to astronomical rent and real estate prices.
Russ Steel did a factual post on his blog about the real Oakland. Maybe "the most hated man in the region" will read it and see the facts, data and truth about how wonderful Oakland isn't:Thanks for the facts Russ! link: http://sierrafoothillcommentary.com/2014/12/20/local-lefty-blogger-wants-local-to-learn-from-oakland/
Maybe "the most hated man in the region" will read it and see the facts, data and truth about how wonderful Oakland isn't:Nahh! He won't want to bust the narrative that plays in his head over something as trivial as facts!
I would bet that his pal Curtis may not agree with Pelline's assessment of the greatness of Oakland. The man is delusional.
The man is delusional.I didn't use to think this. I just thought that jeffy was a guy who couldn't stand to lose an argument! I'm starting to wonder though!
It's so very predictable. Less than 15 minutes after :Windy" posted something nice about The Union newspaper on Pelline's Nevada County Sucks blog the cyber bully and "most hated man in the region" posts a response telling this person how wrong they are. This is typical and classic egocentric, obsessed, narcissistic behavior. "Windy" dared to post, "not afraid to say that I like my home town paper again. The owners and the leadership and staff are committed to keeping the paper a valuable participant and source in the community".14 minutes after 'Windy" posted this comment supporting The Union she was set straight by the power and all knowing Pelline, the stalker.
Review my "obsession" post. He is truly oblivious to the value we all place on out local newspaper.
Meanwhile, Todd’s blog continues to exercise hate for Free Speech. In a way, it’s productive to coral all these folks in one place, so the rest of us can go on with “democratization of a small town.” Yeah sounds like you are making real headway jeffy! I find it amazing but you actually find ways to make me feel sorry for you you sad little man!
The tool gets his talking points from MSNBC, has no original thoughts.
Jeffal Sharpine, the "Most Hated Man in the Region". No wonder he wants us to become Oakland! When will his mentor show up for a rally in Pioneer Park?
I was alerted to another spelling error on the Pelline blog."jeffpelline says: December 20, 2014 at 10:50 am Meanwhile, Todd’s blog continues to exercise hate for Free Speech. In a way, it’s productive to coral all these folks in one place, so the rest of us can go on with “democratization of a small town.” BTW, what happened to Steve Enos? He used to be a local “gadfly”? LOL."So apparently the "coral snake" is alive and well? LOL.Regarding Steve Enos, I am not his favorite fellow either but I do respect his putting his ideas and philosophy as well as political views out there for all. I hardly agree with him but you must give him credit for running and winning public office. I think Pelline is asking Enos to come back and get into a bashing agian. He must need the ratings. LOL!
Wow, within one minute Pelline deleted the para containing "coral". He of course never makes an error as we see in his criticism of the Union Newspaper. My goodness. What a hoot!
It appears that maybe he really was fired as Editor because he can't spell! LOL!
Jeffal Sharpine, the most hated man in the region! LOL!
Now he is saying that I am using hate. I think he has lost his mind, but he does supply all this fodder for comedy and mockery.I am hust a lovable little fuzz ball. Too funny!
Todd’s blog continues to be polluted with the musings of “fish,” (AKA David Larsen of Carmichael). David doesn’t live or work in our community, and I continue to wonder if he’s a paid political blogger. Or he just doesn’t have much going on in his life. Either way, it’s good to what you’re dealing with. Happy to have “outed” “fish.” Posting his musings only makes Todd’s blog look more ridiculous./facepalmjeffy how many times are you going to "out" me before you realize nothing will come of it? to recap: I don't live in your community. You don't live in mine. You do realize that "the internet is changing the way we communicate" don't you? I don't need to live in your community to comment about the happenings there. I know it frosts you to be unable to exercise a "gatekeeper" role away from your sandbox but hey....did you know the internet is changing the way we communicate?I continue to wonder if he's a paid political blogger?Yep....I met with the Koch Bros just this week to discuss how we would roll back all the "democratization" that you've brought to the region! They're terrified of you jeffy..... what with your spreading of San Francisco values and homespun tales of food and wine....You've made their list! They'll be watching you...I now have a 12 million dollar budget for Suppression/Oppression Operations in Pellines Indicated Geography (code named SOO-i-PIG)!..or he doesn't have much going on in his lifeActually jeffy I'd like to get back to balancing my checkbook....and if you can refrain from making your usual Saturday quota of "pants-shittingly" stupid statements for a while maybe I can!Now don't you have another new and fresh sock puppet personality to gin up so you have somebody to talk to this afternoon. Make sure it's a female personality you seem to be good at those.
Fish, I think he says he is published by the Sacramento Bee which puts his yapping in your geographical area. So, what is good for the cheese is good for the smell?
I know Todd....that's what initially brought me to your charming little burgh! Seeing that face in my already mediocre newspaper!
I am truly sorry. Well, off to the Christmas Party! The one with all my fellow yahoos!
Well Todd have a wonderful time and Merry Christmas!
fish, if I wasn't such a egocentric hater of all things good and true, I would congratulate you on a superb and creative post! But that would really be beneath my ability for any humility or recognition of a job well done, wouldn't it? I am sure the legions of SDB readers and posters are all smiling, laughing, and....ROFLMFAO!
High praise indeed from THE TRUE FUE! Thank you kind sir!
Isn't it just ironic that the man who brought hate to our town, and has perfected it as an art form, is now complaining about being the object of hate himself. Unfortunately for him, he is too self obsessed to understand that the entire community, with very few exceptions, are sick of him and his negative crap. His life will continue to get worse until he learns to keep his hate and vitriol to himself, or finally can't stand all of the crap returned to him and gives up and goes away. My guess is he does not have the first alternative in him, and will claim that he has a right to express his opinion, which he absolutely does. As does everyone else who is the recipient of his hate. And around we go until he gives up or gives out.
The interesting side note here is that he keeps repeating what he would like to believe, that Todd and a handful of his followers are aligned against him. In reality it is everyone in the community who is tired and disgusted with his crap.
Holy moly. I go shopping and you guys start a renewed not-so-civil war. The internet is changing the way we communicate.
Real name thank you.
