Whiny prog friends: Now will you shut the hell up?

From today’s Times-Standard (emphasis all ours):

I commend the elected officials for taking time out of their schedules to attend the recent California Coastal Commission meeting, and argue the case for the CUE Vi Coastal Development Permit. The $1,876 seems like a small price to pay especially if the commission had any interest in acquiring more information on the Project.

I am not associated in any way with the project, but I am offering the city of Eureka a donation of $1,876 to cover the expense of their representatives. I hope that will stop the whining about the wasteful spending.

You talk about political grandstanding by the councilman. I think that you should put more effort into investigative reporting and be more “fair and balanced” in your editorials.

You also talk about middle ground. I don’t know how you describe middle ground, but it seems to me that the Arkleys have gone beyond halfway. They are cleaning up a mess, developing wetlands, putting people to work and creating a beautiful Project. What has the opposition done to meet in the middle?

I think you are correct when you said the project has a great deal of support, but I believe the number of detractors is small.

  1. Looks like case closed to me. Thanks, Bob.

  2. Funnier than all hell bugs. Hope the staff at the TS reads it and figures out that they need to quit pontificating for Bonnie Neely and start covering things for the real people in this community.

  3. Problem solved.

  4. Eurekans should have been knocking each other down to get in line to pay this. Leave it to the Friendly City to the south to show Eureka how to resolve this issue.

  5. Aww Bob, aren’t you the clever little doggie. You have no side in the fight so you gallop in with your check and all will be well … because umm .. because you’re the middle ground? Sorta like Sarah Palin is the middle ground, if you’re a willfully ignorant tool who thinks Jesus rode a dinosaur.

    Arkley got caught trying to trump the process once again because he’s getting his ass handed to him in Federal court (don’t forget about that “other” lawsuit bugs, you know, the one Baykeeper is smacking Rob around with on a daily basis) and if he can just push through his project, no matter what bullshit his supporters spew about “cleanup” at the local level that darn Federal lawsuit will die on the vine.

    This is my favorite part of dear Bob’s plaintive wail The $1,876 seems like a small price to pay especially if the commission had any interest in acquiring more information on the Project.

    Well fuck Bob, just give your money to me because anyone who can read and understand the English language at a 5th grade level knew that the Commission wasn’t going to listen to anything Eureka reps were saying, mainly because the Commission has its rules and follows them and lil Jeffie and Mr. Goodhair just couldn’t believe that the commission would ignore them and their carefully crafted arguments for building a multi-million dollar complex on top of a polluted site.

    Sweet Jesus humping a whale, the fucking stupid goes deep in this community.

  6. hmm

  7. wtf?

    Good old strobinofbloor must be on the paykeeper dole. He says “Well fuck Bob, just give your money to me!” Tell me strobbin, how does your head stretch so to give yourself such a blow job? I mean you ought to be in a circus. (Cripes, maybe you are!)

    So Pete Nichols (aka sweet jesus) is out humping whales and you want to make sure we know you think of all of us as fucking stupid. How sweet. Happy New Year you disgusting self righteous dumbfuck.

  8. SaintRobinofBloor,

    The majority of the causes of action in the Baykeeper’s federal lawsuit you speak of were dismissed. The remainder have yet to be dealt with. Nice try, but no court on this planet works “on a daily basis.”

  9. Can’t wait for the Coastal Commission to break all your hearts!

    Back to the drawing board guys!

  10. Bob Canevari is a decent Christian man who obviously sees the need to solve a problem and steps up to the plate financially to end all this 3rd grade-out on the monkey bars- he pushed me first-I’m telling on you CRAP. Grow, the hell, UP!

  11. We’ll see.

  12. Here’s where you went wrong. You asked an anonymous blogger to grow the hell up. You and I both know that is impossible.

  13. You want to talk about wasteful spending? Why don’t you guys focus on the people who sue the city for the sole reason that they don’t like Arkley and big box stores

  14. The Coastal Commission is the most stupid, biased, arrogant and undemocratic group on the planet.

    Read the clean up alternatives on their staff report which are completely retarded. Jim Baskin and Bob Merrill have let their self ritiousness get in the way of what little common sense they have.

    All to protect Bonnie and Bill Pierson, what a sad, sad day for regular working people.

  15. How does one get ahold of the clean up alternatives in the staff report? Got a link?

    Inquiring minds want to know.

  16. Why didn’t my comment post? I tried a second time, and it said I’ve already posted? WTF?

  17. stobin,
    you are so rude! you talk about jesus humping whales and riding dinosaurs. and accuse us of being
    “deeply stupid”. Even dumb people know that God
    drove a plymouth per scripture, he drove them out in his fury and Jesus drove a honda because he and the apostles all left in one accord. as for you, we have been here for generations and you and your ilk can crawl back under the rock from which you came. if you
    don’t love it, leave it!!!

  18. I can’t wait until Arkley sues (and WINS) the Coastal Commission for arbirtrary and capricous actions HA HA HA

  19. Taken right from the Coastal Commission staff report on the web site with notations from a common citzen to explain Merril’s and Baskin’s limited common sense capacity…..
    ….. “As enumerated in Appeal A (save the mudd puddles and Bill Pierson’s profit margins and Bonnie Neely’s campaign fund Appeal) , several potential feasible options are available for managing
    and controlling polluted stormwater originating from the former railroad maintenance
    yard site (because we as coastal commission staff members know all about water quality and environmental engineering) without obliterating the emergent onsite wetlands (aka our beloved mud puddles), including, in some interfunctional (incredibly stupid) combination: (a) installing perimeter berming to impound contaminated surface and groundwater flows (leave it as it is a great assortment of contaminated mud puddles); (b) grading the site to drain to onsite retention/detention basins (make a bigger even more meaningless contaminated mud puddle); (c) controlling the entry of stormwater into hazardous materials contaminated areas (build berms around our beloved contaminated mud puddles); (d) in-situ remedial treatment (spray shit in and on the ground and leave our beloved contaminated mud puddles alone); and (e) removing the underlying contaminated soil materials and restoring the emergent wetlands in place (destroy our beloved contaminated mudd puddles and then recreate our formerly beloved mud puddles). Thus, the non-existence of other feasible less environmentally damaging (please don’t destroy our beloved contaminated mud puddles and god forbid don’t restore 11 acres of real salt water wetlands) alternatives has not been established.

    And to think these Coastal Comission guys probably get paid $100k per year to come up with such brilliant logic.

  20. The Coastal Commission needs to be disbanded.

  21. Dunno Bugs….

    I think it takes more than facts and common sense to quiet this rabble.

    Make no mistake, this is an ideological barbecue. A scorched earth argument where no set of facts will trouble the zealots. I was amused with the “why can’t we all just get along” screed from the TS ed board. Rodney King would be proud to see his menu choices be embraced by the local Illuminati.

    Still, there is a lot wrong with this argument that thrives on angst over reason. Keep it up bugs, this perverse balloon needs some serious popping. The likes of SaintRobinofBoredom are sooooo tiresome and predictable.

    I guess Petey needs a good feed. Some nice rotisserie juxtapachicken might work.

    But, it appears there is a disadvantage. The Bons, Fausts and Kid Kerrigans of the world know everything.

    But after all, the all knowing are all…..

    assholes.

    That’s why they fail

  22. Aren’t you just the Saint to want Bob to give you his money.. Is that you on the corner with the cardboard sign “Out of gas and too stupid to know how far a tank will take me”?
    The Rules for the California Coastal Commission state that if 3 commissioners want to hear from the public, so be it. Bonnie (in whose area the agenda item came from) never stated what her emails requested, so the other commissioners figured, what the hell, she doesn’t want to hear from the City of Eureka, so why should we. Peter Douglas pontificated about the rules as though he didn’t want to hear from anyone. What a dick.
    But what about the violations that the commissioners committed by ex parte information sharing? If it can be proved, then they are SOL. Let the next round begin.

  23. Ok, let me get this straight, someone on this blog is acusing Good Ol’Pete of unlawful cardinal knowledge of a sea mammal? Wow, porpoise porno….sure beats inspecting spetic tanks for fun, and there may not be an pesky SDT issues.

    Leave to the progs to come up with new and inventive debauchery…..better than getting (CENSORED) with the (REDACTED) in the alley behind The Works.

  24. The Laughing Leprechaun has it correct, you are an insufferable self-righteous prick. You are the very personification of the prog viewpoint. “Agree with me and follow my lead or I will destroy ‘it’ rather than letting you have ‘it’ or even an opinion about ‘it.’

    The complete inability to accept that people just might think YOU ARE WRONG induces such spasms in the progs.

    The area of Eureka which is causing such uproar has looked like that for YEARS. Most of the enviro’s have focused on shutting down logging, and no one paid the slightest bit of attention to that benighted area. Until a private entrepenurer came along and used HIS money, which he EARNED, and, well, we just can’t have that.

    What has not Paykeeper, EPIC and the rest of them done something before now, if they are so concerned? It is time, you prog-types to “Show me the money.” Because, just like Tom Cruise, your just slightly loopy.

  25. I think I love you Josephine

  26. Really. I guess that WAS
    insensitive of me. My bad.

  27. Funnygirl, you rock!

  28. Most interesting comment from over the weekend Humbug

    http://humboldtmirror.wordpress.com/2009/12/21/hug-andrew-goff/#comment-11349

    I had no clue Mr. Arkley was such a talented photographer! Did you get permission from the fine folks at CUE IV? The gossip queen Perez Hilton was sued for copyright infringement after posting blog photos without compensating or crediting his sources.

    So why not credit the artist in the post? Does he wish to remain anonymous? Goff deserves just a smidgen of credit now, don’t you think??

  29. Ya, isnt that what the $1,876 is for?

  30. I’m not saying it was insensitive. I’m saying it was stupid and unrealistic of you to expect anon to grow up and grow some balls

  31. Now go behind the alley and screw one of your girlie proggie friends.

  32. Hasn’t he gotten plenty of credit and publicity what with his comic being everywhere on the net in the social networking sites not to mention the published strip in the North Coast Journal

  33. All the progs are like mushrooms. They’re kept in the dark and fed shit all day. Too bad they really believe it.

  34. True, but I thought it was nothing but nonsense.

    Turns out, Rob is a significant contributor at the very least!

    Fasinating…

  35. Bobbo said

    They are …, developing wetlands,….

    Nice….

  36. Hilarious. How long did it take to come up with that one?

  37. Oh Yeah now I remember you and how you got your last name

  38. funny as manila

  39. You wish….rumor has that size is an issue.

  40. Right back atcha baby cakes!

  41. Alrighty then, the New Year is upon us and before that keg of PBR is broached, perhaps the Graphics Department can turn their heads and hands to something apporpriate for this new decade!

    Perhaps something to immortalize Good Ole Pete and his peccadillos, or the truly original individuals who populate this little microcosom of Humboldt?

    Come along, before you are too befuddled with drink.

  42. Maybe Rob can send over some new material

  43. SOMEONE ASKED ME ONCE WHAT I THOUGHT ABOUT THE BUILDINGS MR. ARKLEY HAS BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE.. I STOPPED AND PONDERED FOR A SECONDED AND REPLIED VERY CAREFULLY BEING THAT THE QUESTION CAME FROM ANOTHER EUREKA RESIDENCE. AND A AFLUENT ONE. i REPLIED THAT JUST BEING AN OBSERVER AND ONE THAT DOES NOT GET INVOLVED POLITICALLY BECAUSE IT REALLY DOES’NT MATTER! I SEE A MAN THAT WORKS HARD EARNS HIS OWN MONEY AND CHOOSES TO SPEND IT IN THIS SESPOOL OF A TOWN THAT HAS NO ECONOMY EXCEPT FOR THE TOMATO GROWTH AND WE ALL CAN’T BE DOING THAT! A TOWN I’VE LIVED IN ALL MY LIFE AND STILL CAN’T AFFORD TO BUY A HOUSE IN. WE COULD. iF WE WANTED TO PAY THE OUTRAGEOUS PRICES SO THE REAL PIGS IN EUREKA CAN GET RICH! COME ON PEOPLE REALIZE THEIR IS NO FUTURE IN EUREKA AFTER POT BECOMES LEAGAL! aLL WE HAVE IS TOURISM LEFT. PEOPLE HAVE TO WANT TO COME HERE. CLEANING UP THE OBVIOUS UGLINESS ALL AROUND EUREKA WOULD BE A BIG BENIFIT. i’VE LIVED AWAY AND HAVE COME BACK UNFORTUNATELY. i’VE SEEN OTHER CITIES CLEAN UP AND BECOME ATTRACTIONS. WE HAVE A COAST LINE. A PRETTY ONE. LETS USE IT. IT’S BAD ENOUGH CITY COUNCIL MEMBERS HAVE DECIDED ON SO MANY OLD CRAPPY BUILDINGS IN EUREKA NOT TO BE TORN DOWN BECAUSE THEY A RE A HISTORICAL MONUMENT TO WHAT PLACES FOR OUR HOMELESS AND DRUG HEADS THAT FILL OUR STREETS TO USE AND TEAR APART MORE. aRKLEY CAN’T SAVE EVERYTHING IN EUREKA . AND IF HE WANTS TO PUT HIS NAME ON IT SO BE IT. PEOPLE WHO HAD VISIONS IN THE PAST AND ACCOMPLISHED THE ALMOST IMPOSSIBLE GOT THEIR NAMES DOWN FOR ALLL TO SEE AND INSPIRE.

  44. Well,
    The real issue here is that the Graphics Dept. has been passed out for 3 days. Has anyone checked for a pulse? Not much chance with the New Year approaching. Let’s all just pull the blankets over our heads and hope for a better year in 2010. Good luck bugs! And happy new year to all – friends and foes…

  45. Bugs,
