Re: “Cannabis growers worry as enforcement grace period nears end

I'm not sure if Debbie Arnold understands where the complaints are coming from. There are "watchdog groups" that are acting worse than a crazy ex. I received a smell complaint when I wasn't flowering (it did not smell). Also, this year, I received a complaint for a soil pile too close to the creek. I moved that soil pile two years ago, but if you look on google maps, the picture is old enough that you can see it. I could go on and on with stories from people who have dealt with the same thing. I'm not sure how the county deals with bogus complaints, but it doesn't make sense to penalize us because the "other side" is wasting their time.

Peshong is a slimy, bullying, lying thug just like his idol, Trump.

Re: “Mountainbrook Church investigates its lead pastor; parishioners want more transparency during the process

Evangelicals think pedophilia, rape, adultery, domestic abuse, child abuse, greed, cruelty, racial hatred & lying are okay as long as the wrongdoer is a Trump supporting Republican. The only things they don't approve of are homosexuality & abortion.

Re: “Dear Adam Schiff and all Democrats

Trump is a cult leader & his devotees are in thrall to him no less than the followers of Charles Manson, Jim Jones & David Koresh were. The article above is typical rubbish spewed by a MAGA devotee. These lost souls will brush away empirical evidence as casually as if it were a bothersome fly buzzing around their face. Trump certain DID collude with Russia. He is a Russian asset willing or not.

Re: “Go live in a red cesspool

Great letter! I wish all the stupid, vicious, Trump-worshiping, redneck Nazi scum who live here but hate California would immigrate to some barbarous, backward, failed state where they could experience close up & personal what their nihilistic, social Darwinist ideology looks like when it's put into practice.

Re: “Reality check

How, exactly, are demands on services like school, fire, police and social services attributable to the landlord, and not to the tenants themselves? Are you suggesting that landlords should never rent to poor people because they have additional needs which will burden services? Regardless of the condition of a property, the needs of the tenants are going to be the same, and a proposal to exile the poor from town is unlikely to play well with most people and community groups.

Re: “Mountainbrook Church investigates its lead pastor; parishioners want more transparency during the process

Making excuses for wrongdoing by saying we all sin is insane. Yes we do all fall short of being perfect, but when that fall includes victimizing others it is not just as simple as finding it in our hearts to be forgiving and moving on. It is holding the wrongdoer responsible and then taking appropriate remedial action. What that remedy might be is for the entire congregation and perhaps the courts to determine. If there were criminal acts involved then the police should be notified. If it is civil in nature then the civil courts can be employed to determine liability, unless the church offers compensation outside of court.

Re: “Mountainbrook Church investigates its lead pastor; parishioners want more transparency during the process

I think that we all need to remember that no one, including lead pastors, are perfect! We all have fallen to some degree throughout our lives! We are all human, with no exceptions~ Who are we to judge? Pastor O’Leary will answer to our Lord, as we all will for our transgressions~
We need to pray for healing and understanding and ask God to soften our hearts and help us to forgive~
Mountain Brook is special‼️ We all need to carry on and continue to grow in this church and NEVER cease to pray for the broken, who ever they may be! That is what we are called to do~
May God bless each and every one of you~

Well...I would not want to live next door to it, but, then again, I would do my do dillegence on their operating permits before buying a home there.

Re: “Go live in a red cesspool

Go spend some time in Mississippi, Alabama, Missouri. Rampant poverty and violence. Rape is an epidemic, as are unwanted pregnancies, STDs, illiteracy.
I guess you've never driven in LA or SF lately.

Re: “New restrictions on food stamp program will affect 900 local recipients

The new rule, which will go into effect April 1, 2020, requires able-bodied adults between the ages of 18 and 49 without dependents to work at least 20 hours a week or else lose their benefits.
"It reduces hunger in a county where 16 percent of our children live in a household that struggles with that issue."
So how does that hurt families with children?

Re: “Dear Adam Schiff and all Democrats

It’s a ‘smoking economy’ all right, if you’re a hedge fund manager. Otherwise you’re trying to stay above water in the gig economy with no benefits, and if your Lord Protector has his way, we will lose insurance for pre-existing conditions. Talk with North Korea? About what, moving Seoul 500 miles south so Kim can keep test-firing Missiles? Dems doing nothing? Maybe if McConnell would bring any of the 400 pending bills to the floor something could be accomplished.

Re: “Former employee sues Sierra Vista for discrimination

I am not surprised at Sierra Vista's behaviour. I recently left Sierra Vista and was employed in the surgery department for five years. They use a system called "lean management." It is a system commonly used in the automobile industry. However, in a health care environement, especially a trauma center, things are not so predictable! It is a system that squeezes the absolute most out of its staff for as few pennies they think it's worth.
I was commonly put in situations and expected to overextend the capabilities of myself and the staff on a regular basis. All in the name of "lean management." It was not uncommon to work 16 to 20hrs on call, straight through. Often times with no other staff members to reach out to for assistance. Sometimes I was genuinely concerned for patients' safety. Constant "crisis management" is a more fitting label for this style of management. Shameful!
At Sierra Vista, asking you to do more, give more and perform extraordinarily all the time is the norm. It has caused me to stand back and question the motive???
I would like to know who Mrs Hoover's attorney is so that I may have a candid conversation with them. I may be able to add to the cause. If anyone should know please email me at
Thanks for reading... ;)

Re: “The same old song

The Democrats have painted themselves into a corner with impeachment, and have guaranteed the destruction of their one viable candidate. They control the House, which not only guarantees that they will vote to impeach, but also has allowed them to control how their "dog and pony show" has been conducted. But, the trial will be in the Republican-controlled Senate, which will set its own procedures, including WHO will testify, and what evidence is relevant and admissible. Presiding will be Republican appointed Justice John Roberts. You can count on the fact that Joe and Hunter Biden, both of whom are private citizens and who enjoy no immunity, will be forced to testify under subpoena, and under oath. If they refuse, the Sergeant at Arms of the Senate, or a US Marshall, can physically drag them into testify. If they flee the country....well, it will make Joe's campaign a bit problematic. They will be forced to respond to rhetorical questions like "Didn't $50,000 per month seem like a lot of money to pay someone with no experience, and who had just be discharged from the Navy for cocaine use?" and "Are you certain that the fact that Burisma was paying your son so much money had no influence on your decision to force Ukraine to fire the prosecutor who was investigating them?" Knowing Joe's gift for gaffes, can you predict what he is going to say, especially knowing that so many people will be waiting to fact-check him? And the media, although sympathetic to Biden and the Democrats, will be unable to resist the drama and spectacle of a former VP being brutally questioned, and will cover it closely. And if he somehow still manages to get the nomination, you can expect to see lots of ads featuring the video takes from this examination during the general campaign.
