No Kumbaya in sight!


Yes Mr. Hamilton, most people want to “just get along” and lead lives that are calm and peaceful and safe. Maybe many people get together ideologically and agree with each other to accomplish those goals. Sometimes there are so many they start a political party! And why do they do that? Because others have banded together to push their agenda down their throats. And to defense that, we have Republicans or democrats or others.

Every year one party or the other passes thousands of new laws to hobble Americans. Just think about it. Since the inception of America there have been millions of laws passed to restrict the actions of individuals or whole groups of people. Are we supposed to take it without fighting back if we don’t agree? Of course not. Look today at California. One party, the democrats, own the state, lock, stock and barrel. Republicans have no power. So why haven’t they , as you suggested, included the Republicans in their decisions? Because they have the POWER!. And we know what happens when some people have that don’t we?

And all this desire for “compromise”. Tell me how you compromise an issue like abortion? One side says a woman can abort at any time and no one can stop her, the other side says that is a life and needs protection. How do you compromise that? How about healthcare? One side, the democrats want the government to take it over and tax every citizen to achieve that goal. The other says no. We believe in free markets and choice. How do you compromise that?

It only works if one group or the other has the POWER to implement their vision. The democrats had the power in 2009 and passed ObamaCare. The people in America were not happy and tossed many out of POWER and replaced them with people promising to throw it out. That is the idea with political parties. Gaining the majority!

You mention Las Vegas and guns. A huge number of Americans are all in for the Second Amendment and the right to bear arms. And another segment is all about taking those guns away. And America has passed 20,000 laws over the years to restrict those weapons and still we have the debates. Rather than blame the person who actually does the terrible deed, we see that one side blames the weapon. How do you compromise that?

Racism is the other issue that seems to be unsolvable. Blacks, whites’ Latinos and Asians are different in that their skin colors are different. Yet in America in my lifetime, we have tried to ensure all are treated with equal opportunity. Thousands of laws were passed to force that. And still we see minorities unhappy that they feel there has been nothing done. Hogwash. We Americans of goodwill cannot fix a movement that says I and you have “white privilege”. How can we fix that? I like what Martin Luther King said about “content of character” but now we can’t even show ourselves in public if we are white! How do you compromise that?

What I see happening about “thinking for oneself” is simple. People will read the paper, watch the news and check the internet and make up their own minds. The people in “parties” are certainly likeminded but that is a good thing. No anarchy. Check the far left “Antifa” anarchists of Berkeley for a good example of people that do not have the best interests of the country at heart. There is safety in numbers to protect yourself and your family. If you want a true hermit lifestyle you will be severely disappointed.

When I ran for State Assembly in 1992 in the Republican primary I learned some lessons that are pretty basic about POWER. Bernie Richter won the primary and the Republican Caucus asked the rest of us to attend a “kumbaya” meeting in Marysville to get on board endorsing Bernie. Now the campaign was pretty spirited and Bernie had his agenda. But the scouts from the Assembly said it was all about numbers. 41 to be exact. And what Bernie said on the trail was not the issue. It was winning and POWQER. And that is life in a nutshell.

I would like to see unicorns and sweet blueberries too, but let’s get real.

    2. Al Franken and what about Bill Clinton? The lib's give Bill Clinton a free pas on his sexual assaults on many females, including while he was the President and doing it in the Oval Office. Clinton was impeached for lying and perjury under oath. The lib's fail to hold their own accountable, work to protect them and fail to discuss them.

    4. It takes two to Tango! The female and the male. The female or the male may may be the one that institutes it. The female may take on the role of the "Prick Teaser" and if the male responds to her advances is he the bad guy?

    5. It does take two. And we all know women are as bad as men when they get excited. But to use coercion or force is mostly a man's thing and is not right. Women use their feminine mystique.

    6. Exactly correct and I agree with you 100% and in these situations the male partner then should let the female participant lead the tango.

      Here it comes......."no excuses" ....the usual progressive "apology"! Quite the gesture....throw pervy Bill over the side 25 years and 80 million dollars after the fact and when he becomes a liability.

      Instead of the usual no consequences progressive punishment how bout pervy old Franken resign and go back to molesting interns back in the private sector at NBC? It's not like you even lose the seat as the progressive governor will certainly seat another proggie dimwit as replacement!

    8. I think the left's tit is really in the wringer. Most of the pervs seem to come from their ranks. And they admit it! Moore has stayed the course and does not admit anything. I have seen many liberal attacks on the right and they sure can put some believable acts and words together. But Trump said it did not happen and now Moore. I would have thought this strategy would be rejected by the democrats as it did not work on Trump. But they are not that bright I guess.

    9. BS, There is no evidence whatsoever. Your liberal brain as normal spinning out of control.

  3. Reading the fools that are responding on the Union ste regarding my column is too funny. Though I simply ask questions about "compromise" of certain issues, these idiots respond as if I had stated a opinion. I mean are these the kinds of brains taught in our schools? No comprehension about what was written. And of course they have to call me names and try to demean. But I don't care. They are simply igmorant and unable to think critically. My point.

    1. Todd your 67 years old and I am 74. I happen to agree with the majority of your
      answers to the liberals, at least 90% or more. You do need to understand which I am sure we will never fix stupid and liberals are stupid and I should also add because I and you it seems are open discussion but a liberal seems to have a "brain lock" and an open sensible discussion will never happen.
      Quite simply they are stuck in reverse at 75 miles per hour with no rear vision mirrors and no brakes.
      I gave up on trying to fix stupid 60 or more years ago.
      When will California be back to where it was in the 70's, 5, 10, 15 years?
      The stupid voters and the fools in Sacramento do not understand that diesel fuel a week or two ago was $3.99 and now $4.19 a gallon? Everything trucked up here will go up 10% or more?
      Regardless don't loose the conservative faith.

    2. I thought you were a younger man. Well yes, I have also decided that liberals are un-fixable as well. They really have a mental disorder. No common sense and are hypocrites. Not possible to get thru their rock heads. But I enjoy the sparring so for me it is a way to spread the truth about them and their lame ideas.

    3. Pelline has a JibJab he created of me as the Tday bird. Jeeze, I am honored! LOL! Bit at least I am a little bird whereas he is truly a huge fat ass hippo! LOL!

    4. Todd, the difference between 67 and 74 is not much if you are 67 it's not far away, time flies. I to enjoy the jabs at liberals as their ignorance in their voting affects us all. They cannot understand how President Trump has turned this country around in less than a year and has done more than Obama did in eight years, which was all negative.
      President Trump is an amazing guy and won the presidency through preservation, a 24/7/7 schedule and picked the best of the best for his team and makes changes as needed. Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

      Remember Todd.....there is a well established connection between food and sex.....what jeffie posted wasn't a slam but a fantasy! You running all over town....I guess with jeffie following....
      my concern would be what happens at the end of the video.....presumably when he catches you!

      If I were you I'd buy some pepper spray and a rape whistle......after all it's been quite a week for progressive pervs to come out of the closet!

    7. I thought that too. Food porn to real porn fantasies. You may have hit on the truth!

    8. I am really not certified to evaluate Pelline one way or the other but can tell the difference of one that has their cranial marbles aligned but liberals do not and if that person is a liberal plus cranial marbles not aligned properly then we have a liberal that may be nuttier than a fruit cake.
      From what I read Pelline suffers from both of those afflictions as easily verified by his nutty hateful posts.
      A concealed carry permit and a Glock would be better than pepper spray and a rape whistle? What if the beached 500 pound whale lunges and falls on you?
      Just a thought!!

    9. Even an old one in a walker can move faster than the most hated unemployed journalist FUE. That comes with a caveat, don't get between the FUE and a plate of chili fries.

    10. Pelline loves to muck rake up old news he pulls out of the Union but does not report the final outcome which is dismissal of original charges.
      Pelline would fit right in with Podesta, DNC and the creation of the fake dossier Clinton paid millions to discredit President Trump.

      That fake dossier was a fraud and to boot Michael Steel was stiffed his payment for it of more than a $100,000.
      These bastards are crooks and the Hillary Clinton Machine is crooked to the core dating back prior to slick Willy even before he was governor to this date and will continue for years.
      Pelline is scum of the earth, not a world class nothing just a little minded dork who lacks any social redeeming values.

    11. I recall that Hillary was booted from the Watergate committee staff by the lead democrat who called her a liar and a cheat.

    12. 'lacks any social redeeming values.' Talk about an understatement! The only redeeming value of the FUE is if he is rendered down for soap. ROFLOL

    2. Good one Todd, I prefer "Ogallala Bay Rum Cologne" myself but the "Aqua Velva Man" is a description of one who is prim and proper and I agree.
      Medusa is probably offended being compared to the FUE. Don't think it's a good idea to piss her off but she is laughing at the comparison. Orion's dog Sirus would guard us from the FUE.

    3. I find it interesting if one reads Mr. Pelline's "short stories" he is so suave and deboner (purposely misspelled) but in real life resides in Pandora's Box. Could he suffer from a split personally malady or the "Two Faces of Jeff"? Perhaps he hates conservatives and normal people. Who TF cares!

  6. Idiot drivers in Grass Valley, Nevada City, My post in the Union as follows:

    Wow, a .246? vs. a .04 legal commercial license or a .08 for non commercial.
    She could easily got a Kamikaze pilots license in WWII.
    It is not legal to drive over a .08 BAC and certain driving behavior / road conditions could even if the BAC was lower than .08 could lead to an arrest of driving under the influence.
    What is worse than driving drunk with .08?
    It's driving sober with a stupid brain and for every .08 BAC driver here in Grass Valley there are thousands that drive with a stupid level. Lets say a driver with a non stupid level is a 100.00. Every day on the 49 or on Old Auburn Road which I live on I interact with drivers as well on the 49, the 20 and downtown Grass Valley streets.
    My rating for stupid but sober idiots is as follow,
    -25 running stop lights or Calif stops.
    -25 turning left or right in front of me when I have to lock my breaks up to avoid a collision.
    Pedestrians down town Grass J-walking and running in front of my truck when I am going less than 3 miles per hour.
    Pedestrians that run in front of me at the intersection of Mill and East Main when I have stopped dead northbound and turning right and I look left and right for air-head pedestrians and they dart from the north side of East Main and run across the Mill Street cross walk after I have stopped, and am in the crosswalk and in the intersection and in east main where the bed and wheels of my F-250 super cab with an 8 foot bed has the right of way and my right turn is 90% complete. One little dork and his dorket mother raced around the front of my truck and slammed my drivers side mirror with their hands and beat on the bed and rear fenders of my truck. Obviously air head idiots from the bay area.
    Look, I well know these things happen in Grass Valley, Nevada City and Nevada County and defensive driving in this town is 1000 times worse than Newport Beach or Los Angeles.
    What happened to Grass Valley Police walking a beat in downtown?
    They may even be able to bust me in my F-250 King Ranch for smoking a cigarette in my truck with the sun roof open.
    In conclusion, my point is more idiot drivers cause death 5 to 1 than drunks do so get the idiots off the road or patrol and enforce traffic laws and write speeding tickets or thats the only thing the stupid ones will understand.
    When I get on the 49 I lock cruse at 55 and the drivers behind me are pissed.
    So what if they are in a Bloody Hurry they should have left earlier.

    1. OK Todd LOL if you wish but fact is fact and if there inaccurate state read again and advise. Grass Valley police need to walk the beat and write tickets for jay walking. Guess they don't because the tourist trade is important to the economy.
      There are laws on the books and if the Grass Valley Police wont enforce them just take them off the books. Let them jay walk where ever they choose, black out the white cross walks, turn off the traffic signals and it's helter skelter? Why not raise the speed limit on the 49 to 65 or 80 MPH or more Todd?
      The survival of the fittest? Todd you talk the talk but don't walk the walk.
      Sorry I did not realize a bureaucrat is a bureaucrat and even low level bureaucrats are in there for personal gains.
      Even politicians here in Nevada County are thriving in a swamp that needs to be drained.

    5. The amazing thing about you people up here consider yourselves the royalty, the chosen few and the elite beyond reproach but we little no ones such as I spend money in this town and the sales tax money is gobbled up but I have seen infrastructure improvements and the Grass Valley Engineering / Public
      Works Department is a joke. Check the PG&E pole at the driveway to AAAinsurance offices.
      If driving a truck need to swing into on coming traffic if driving east.
      Grass Valley Public Works Departments and Engineering have their heads some where but not on their heads.
      I laugh and realize how in the stone ages this city is when I drive East and try to turn I need 2-1/2 lanes in my truck.

    6. Well Tim, the reason I created this blog was to write the things I like and hope ohers come and comment. I allow most anything except personal attacks on me. I enjoy this a lot. My hobby so to speak. I once had as many gripes as you do and decided to do something about it and ran for office to try and fix them. I got some things done, others no. But I suggest you may be better as a elected person and get those things done that bother you. It is unclear to me who yopu mean when you are writing aboyt "them" so I'll just leave that to you.
