Invasion!

Or so some seem to think, is almost upon us. From Paul Cienfuegos via Salzman's e- mail list, they mention a couple upcoming public meetings and want members to go and speak in opposition. First one is:
"#1 is a CalTrans public meeting tomorrow eve at 6pm (Wednesday the
20th) re: the widening/straightening of the road through Richardson Grove
to make it possible for ENORMOUS interstate highway sized trucks to
reach our communities....
PLEASE try to attend and speak out in opposition...."

MY GOD... Giant trucks bringing goods to Humboldt County!
We're doomed!

I'm curious how many of these folks are the same people wanting
the railroad up and running again?

These are the anit-rail road people Fred. They don’t want anyone here doing anything except for growing dope for a living.

Salzman should stop messing with Humboldt County. For years now he has been sending out Un-Dam the Klamath emails and calls to action, and when the agreement finally gets approved to do just that, his boys (aka "heraldo") go on the attack, and the NEC, who helped craft the agreement and called themselves a leader in the process, now say they won't sign on.

So, you wanted it, and now you don't? Why? Does it interfere with your plans to sue?

I covered this crap a bit more indepth on my page, and came up with a word for the day. Paul's job is to protest, and that's how he earns his living.

They also don't cover how they can't get the newer trucks into the area, with the newer engine controls and that are almost smog free. Don't understand it.

Maybe some of them, but some of the lefties support rail to get people out of cars (never mind no one is seriously discussing passenger service) and trucks off the road.

These guys don't really care about those issues, Fred. They just use them as camo. Skunks in sheep's clothing they.

It's a complicated issue, but an emotional one as well. The grove is actually a destination point for many tourists. Some of the locals make their living that way.

Yes, a handful of locals do, and they still will even if a few trees are cut down.

It's important to get Chinese-made goods into Humboldt County as quickly as possible!

It's important to make the road wider and safer 11:32. If you don't like Chinese goods don't buy 'em. Most people are sorta turning away from them anyway since the whole lead and contamination things.

NOW for gas? and we need BIGGER?

Man, some of you have some f-d up priorities when it comes to what you get angry about!

The tractors are the same size as are used all over the USA, the trailers are the same size used all over the USA, Humboldt County is the problem, using sub-standard equipment.

Guess the mileage the trucks get, and win a prize, and if you think they pay $3.50 a gallon, you are wrong.

um...o.k..I'm wrong then.

So, what DO they pay?
