84 - YES
85 - NO
86 - no position
87 - YES

There was no time to discuss the bond measures, so we took no position on all of them. Kaitlin and Heidi will write a press release to announce our endorsements. We won't do a voter guide at this time but we're looking forward to the next election and being really ready to publicize our positions next election. We're all ready to help the County get the word out to the voters.

7. Eureka Greens Website We would like David Giarrizzo to remove the title "Eureka Greens" from his personal blog and change the address of the blog to make it clear it is his personal blog.

    From last minutes in Nov.

    First of all, I live in Eureka. Second of all, Xandra was in charge of the other website. Third of all, go suck on an egg Kaitlin an Cobb. Poor baby's think they have the exclusive right to own the Eureka Green titel. How pompous. I founded your local chapter, and this is the thanks I get. You people make me sick. The only person with integrity is Heidi. For that reason alone, I post this info on my blog. Yes, it is my blog for all Eureka Greens, Waterfront, or otherwise. Cry me a river.

    C'mon Dave, they only had one person at their last meeting, not counting the Cobb pod people. There is no Eureka Greens, just admit it and move on. If these bozos don't like it they can get off their ass and set up their own website.

    You said it, are we really waiting for the Eureka Greens to resurrect themselves under Cobb's banner? The Eureka Greens is dead, long live the Waterfront Greens!

    BTW, did you hear Dana Silvernale on that radio show? She actually said Greens and Democrats share the same values! What unmitigated bullshit! These people should be ashamed to put someone in charge who is so clearly incompetent.

    Stop pickin on Cobb! He wants the state to give us homeless free food and the right to sleep wherever we want!

    He does? Since when? I've never noticed David Cobb giving two shits about the homeless, even while the Endeavor is threatened with closure by his supporter, the fake Green of Arcata, Harmony Groves.

    Altruism does not mean kindness or consideration for others. What altruism preaches is that man must sacrifice himself for others, that he must place the interest of others ABOVE his own interest, that he must live for the sake of others.

    Typical incompetence from Kaitlin.

    Here is where I found the mis-labeled minutes. Yes, you can thank Kaitlin Sopochi-Belknap for the misleading information. How is she going to start a web site if she can't keep dates straight? The only reason this info was accesible is because it was linked to the mother alien, the Humboldt Greens, and that site is pretty weak too.

    It doesn't look like the minutes are mislabeled on the county site, it looks like it automatically posts the date they were uploaded, which was in November.

    Is this really how you talk about each other in the green party? makes me glad that I don't belong to a political party.

    That's right, we don't allow people without real names from registering to vote in this state. Thank goodness for that.

    I cut and pasted that info from the county site. I have tried being compliant with other Green Party members, but that just leads to being taken advantage of by "so called" Professional Politicos. If the "why can't we all get along" theory works so well, then why do special interest groups receive favoritism daily?

    By the way, with all your non-confrontational bleating, nothing ever would get done, so please do stay out of politics and don't bother posting here. This is not a blog for the weak of mind.
