School Shooters and more rants, as well as solutions!

What the hell is going on in the USA?   We have these young loony boys stealing dad's guns and heading to their schools to get even with those they have a grievance with.  Or they are a bit older and buy their own weapons.  But they wreak havoc and murder the innocent and we just don't understand any of this.  I say it is the culture and the way kids are raised.

When I was a kid in the 50's we watched Cheyenne, Bronco, Wanted Dead or Alive and Wells Fargo.  Mostly western genre.  And Even Disneyland and Davy Crockett.  Sure we were naive as our fathers and mothers had just saved the world from fascists a few years earlier.  And our parents wanted to make their families work and the country too.  So we got raised in an "Ozzie and Harriet" type culture.  Today the left makes fun of that but I don't recall one school shooting then.  The fifties were filled with carefree kids and up here in Nevada County we were all about carefree.

School here was a gathering place to make friends and learn.  When we were not in school we were exploring and hiking all over the county.  Fishing and hunting were a part of the culture.  Kids had the 30-06 on the rack in their trucks.  Parked at school.  No one even thought of shooting anything except maybe a deer in season.  And Nevada County was this way until the scourge of drugs came here in the late 60's. 

Something changed the way people were raising their kids and it was not good.  Parents read books that told them there are better ways to raise their kids and many took that advice and changed the relationship they had with their offspring.  They read Dr. Spock who convinced people that they should be "pals" with their ids and punishment for bad behavior should be treated with words and "timeouts".

Today we see the folly of those strategies where no consequences are meted out for bad behavior.  And over time we saw the politicians change the family dynamic.  It changed to accommodate the grievances of family disputes and placed the government in the mix.  Discipline your kids and CPS shows up to arrest you.  They are now the third adult family member and you better watch out.  They have been empowered to remove your kids from your home.  Of course, there are people that should never have a child and we see that all the time as well.  But those parents were never held accountable either so many of them don't know they are to be a parent and role model and not a "buddy".

Then, of course, we have drugs and other things like alcohol and marijuana.  Anything goes and even I sometimes have a problem with my inner libertarian about the use of personal choices.  For me, it is about abstinence.  I, of course, had cocktails and wine and sometimes a beer when I was younger.  Even today I will have a glass of wine or a rum and coke with a dinner.  But I never drank at home.  And I have kept a lid on any desire to over-indulge in alcohol.  I never did drugs thank goodness.  I was actually afraid to try them.  After Art Linkletter's daughter jumped off a building to her death, I said nope to the poisons.

Which brings me back to schools and these young men with the desire to kill.  I think we need to get the parents back in the loop.  You are the ones that raised these people and if they are 18 and under, you should be held responsible for their actions.  Bring back "guilt" and make people feel bad about their decisions.  Guilt is missing in our culture and to me, it is a mechanism that keeps people from doing bad things.  Public shaming perhaps?  We do it to our politicians when they are caught being bad.  Why not Joe and Jane and their kids?  And give the schools immunity to their discipline of out of control students.  I have friends that quit teaching elementary level kids.  They could not deal any longer with kids that screamed at them using obscenities and even violence.  The teacher is told to take it.  Well, who raised these brats?  Kick them out.  Stop dumbing down the whole class to accommodate these little scofflaws.

I recall in my youth there were some bullies in our classes.  They would pick on others they decided were weak.  Well a couple of times with me and guess what?  I had to fight.  I kicked their asses and they left me alone after that.  Sometimes you have to do the discipline yourself rather than relying on CPS and the Sheriff.  But really, the problem is the parenting of these people.  I knew many parents that allowed their kids to drink underage.  As long as they drank at home!  And these parents would smoke marijuana with their kids too.  What the hell is that all about?  So the kids grow up and become out of control adults with bad habits.  Those parents should be ashamed of themselves.

If you want to stop school shooters it seems to me these kids and young adults give us plenty of warnings.  But that government official seems to always misread the kid and we have a mass shooting.  Parents and teachers and others need to be empowered to take these kids and fix them.  If that means "juvy hall" then so be it.  But unfortunately, until we stop coddling these kids and trying to make them our "friends" we will see more of this behavior.

I am a supporter of the death penalty and the local pillory in the city center.  Punish these people so they don't forget why they are on display in front of city hall.  And make them think deeply about why they are on the electric chair.  But until we change the culture and rein in the trial lawyers and bleeding hearts we will not fix the problem

  1. Pelline is once again whining about the Union Newspaper and its Editorial Board. Pelline is the ex-Editor that was sent packing after numerous complaints about him from the community I am told. He tries to make us believe he has ethics and standing to criticize others in the community. Now he attacks a man that is all about helping the community with time and money. Lots of money. From Meals on Wheels to Hospice to many other local organizations Mac Young is well known for his tireless efforts at making Nevada County work for all people. Even Music in the Mountains and other local charities get his help. But that means nothing to Jeff Pelline. Don't critic his pal Gregory Diaz. Anyone who supports a candidate Pelline dislikes is fair game for his ruthless and asinine attacks. Thank goodness his blog is not attended by any more than three or four people. Mac is well liked and respected here in the county he grew up in. Pelline, a product of a silver spoon Marin County life has no idea who he is screwing with.

  4. Diaz runs on his experience but the problem is our experience with him is BAD! He has never run a clean election from day 1. This one is a diaster already, not 1 but 2 major screwups and then he tells the union that 3 percent had voted when the number is more like 42%.

    How can anyone so incompetent and run on their record, talk about narcissistic denial. That's why the purple hippo likes Diaz, narcissists love blowing some up each other ass. Diaz must use an industrial leaf blower on the reviled purple hippo of quainty city.

I am pretty sure that everyone in town knows that now. Clearly each day he demonstrates why he no longer as a position at The Union and why he bashes then accordingly. Kudos to Ackerman.

  10. Cox and Newsome fairly close but add the other dems to Newsome and other repubs to Cs ox and it does not mean much other than in Nov. it's Cox and Newsome and the dems get 2,000,000 illegal votes. The deciding factor may repubs votes plus pissed of dems Voting for Cox.
    Trump beat Hillary but it was the EC that Trump won and Californicate does not have EC.
    I don't see Cox beating Newsome but the primaries will give us a better idea.

    2. With less than 2 week to go its unlikely Allen has any hope. We need to have a guy in the fight if we have any hope of defeating the nasty ballot props in Nov. It seems like there are 2 republican parties who spend so much time bickering that they miss opportunities. Just like the dirty deals at the local party where a couple of the bosses sided with that sketchy guy who can not keep a job Jennings. Shame on them.

    Dead people getting ballots and voting

All the FUE ended up doing was putting a big spotlight on the old geezers fat pension and it also brings back up the rumor that Foster has applied to switch his pension to a disability.
      The FUE said;
      "After all, his pension as a retired police chief is significant. This would be a real first step toward addressing the “double dip” debacle,"

      We are still waiting to hear any response about his Campaign Managers dirty deeds. Foster is not showing any cajones by not addressing that corrupt issue in a transparent manner. You have to think that's how all those octogenarians would behave if they ran our Sheriffs dept.

      Foster has yet to explain those horrible Federal Per Capita Crime statistics for Grass Valley. All of the most recent reports with their bad results happened under his watch. Right up there with Oakland.

      Travis a Orange County Dana Point, Newport Beach, Huntington Beach surfer and as a 16 year old I surfed those places from 1959 till 1986 for 27 years.
      Driving down Old Auburn Road to McCourtey, to Freeman Lane past the Grass Valley sewer treatment plant, the terrible road conditions and smells of raw sewage from the treatment plant brings back fond memories of driving through Tijuana to go surfing north of Enesada.
      Those Grass Valley roads and the sewer treatment plant mentioned above will be the same as they are today ten years from now.
      Too bad deferred maintenance in Grass Valley is always been on the back burner but fixing streets downtown for the tourists is an ongoing improvement.
      I am sure the City of Grass Valley will figure something out like $500 off road permits for all vehicles driving on Grass Valley roads to re-defer previously deferred maintenance which has been lacking for over 20 years.
      Oh by the way what is with the PGE pole and curb on Dorsey Drive at the AAA insurance office that is projecting into Dorsey drive four feet past the drive depression and normal curb line?
      For me to drive into the AAA parking lot in my King Ranch F-250 super duty with a 8 foot bed I need to cross over two lanes and the double line to enter the parking lot.
      The Grass Valley public works and engineering office screwed that up big time. Totally amazing that the City has not fixed that but typical for a hick town.

One is a old druggie who can't remember the 60's and the other is a person that stole his employees taxes from the federal government to the tune of some estimates are $250,000. And they are upset that Trump and others might not like a NFL dude kneeling for the Anthem. You cannot make up this absurd comedy of these two idiots.

  18. A week from today Tuesday 5th we will have a good idea if or how California voters will vote and know if Trump's MAGA has infiltrated down to the California Voters.
    I don't expect it may have a great extent and the turn out will show to what extent.
    San Diego / Orange County is still conservative and the outcome of Cox vs Allen will only produce one surveyor. It will be interesting how well Allen does in Nevada County. That will tell us if this is still Hillary County.
    President Trump had a great rally in Nashville to night and his speech was right on.
    His work ethic certainly does produce results.
