A Church Bunny

This is pretty much what a "church bunny" is: Generally in a light colored, pastel dress, knee high . Hair in pony tail. Holding bible or prayer book above her breast. Hair in pony tail. Get it? You see them at Nazarene Church all the time.

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.

I didn't see it but was listening to the Channel 3 Weatther when the wife mentioned my name as being one of the runner's up for Channel 3's 3 degree guarantee prize for last night.  She said, "Fred Mangels(?), looks like they picked you.". That means if the temperature is right, I win up to &90.00. I guess I'll find out tonight.

Born to greatness, I guess, and now weather gal, Chelly Lindblade and I will have to be best buddies. I suppose I could do worse.

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?

Honsal Running For Sheriff

The Times Standard reports newly appointed count undersheriff Bill " Billy" Honsal is expected to run for Sheriff later this year when the election opens. Sounds ok to me. I guess it depends who ends up in the running. Maybe he'll get my vote. Maybe not. We'll see.
