Fred's Humboldt Blog
I'm a Libertarian living in Humboldt County, CA. I've lived here in Eureka since 1973 and joined the Libertarian Party in 1992. This blog will mostly focus on local political issues, but I may stray into state and national issues as well, when I can't help myself. Please post your comments by clicking on the "comments" link at the bottom of each post. Although I do moderate comments, you need not be a registered user to post them.

Church Bunnies For City Council?
I started wondering about this the other day: Would someone's affiliation with a church disqualify them from my support in a city council race? I think so, although I'm not sure I have good reason. First of all, being a "church bunny" denotes to me a lack of judgment and leading their life based on superstition. Not something we need in government. So, nope, church bunnies go to the end of the line.
One that comes to mnd is former Eureka Church boy, Mike Newman- rightfully trounced in his re- eeEction bid for Eureka council. Expecially so after seeing his shameless election Facebook page that spoke of nothing but church. Nice guy, but clearly out of touch with the people of Eureka.
Besides, if anything, we need to get the churhes out of Eureka, not bring them further into it. We needfewer church bunnies here. Not less.
Church activity should be a disqulifier, if anything as it shows the person bases their life on superstition, which is what church is. We need less of that, not more.

That Redwood Energy Authority Scam
The Times- Standard has yet another letter plugging the Redwood Coast Energy Authority- the new program to shift prices from PG&E. Estelle Fennel actually went on TV the other day saying it would save money, despite statements by RCEA that its rates would be pennies per hour more expensive.
Someone needs to be taken to the woodshed for this one. Seems to me we're being conned.

Here's an easy one for most of you: We need more people registered to vote with the Libertarian Party. All you need do is go to this online registration form and fill in the blanks. They'll send you a card, you confirm the info on, then return.
Easy enough and you can stop standing in the corner with the Powers of Darkness and join the Live and Let Live good guys. You'll feel much better about yourself. Give it a try. You can't go wrong.

Poor Medical Care?
JUst noticed this on the Redwood Medical web page Patient Portal.
In this case, Dr. Courtney Ladika: "RedMed is a web site that is run by three political parties that are all sections of a revolutionary Marxist international organisation, the Coordination for the Refoundation of the Fourth International (CRFI). The three parties are: the Partito Comunista dei Lavoratori (PCL) of Italy, the Ergatiko Epanastatiko Komma (EEK-Workers Revolutionary Party) of Greece, and the Devrimci İşçi Partisi (DIP-Revolutionary Workers’ Party) of Turkey."
Hard to believe she's preface her page with something so stupid. Makes me think I should be consulting elsewhere. Damned commine. No wonder medical care is so poor up here? What's next? Checking Tuluwat Examiner and Michael Moore and Trump for medical advice?
