Todd Juvinall’s blog: A shining example of our local extremism

I thought I’d share with my readers an excerpt from the “blog” of Todd Juvinall, once a Nevada County supervisor and founder of CABPRO (see image below). You can find some other locals posting on Todd’s blog, such as Barry Pruett, Don Bessee, and The Union columnist George Boardman, among others.

Todd has contributed to the campaign of candidates such as our Congressman Doug LaMalfa, and Doug’s campaign staff has happily photographed Todd with Doug in “grip and grin” shots.

Todd contributes to local campaigns too. Todd and Jeff Ackerman, the former Union publisher who still is on the newspaper owner’s management team, are good friends.

Along with posts like this, you can also find insightful comments on Todd’s blog such as “Get ready for the bend over and grab your ankles for 2015.” Todd has lived in Nevada County most of his life, he writes on his blog. His parents came here in the ’40, he adds. His blog reads: “A place we can discuss, bloviate and debate issues and topics of interest.”

Todd’s blog is increasingly pollinated with anonymous comments and personal attacks, lies and innuendo that go unmoderated. Here’s what Todd posted on his blog on Saturday afternoon, while many of us were out Christmas shopping or doing chores:

  1. Todd fails to understand. the power of the press is owning a profit making one. He missed out, and sees this as a self portrait I guess.

  2. I am not surprised at the negativity of the local ‘crazy’ blogs. Their message form the beginning has been that this is “the last great century of man.”

    It is a worldview that believes our best days are behind us, science is lying to us, the government is engaged in a conspiracy to enslave the people, our children are ignorant, illiterate and innumerate, ‘others’ who do not share the traditional white European Christian culture are lazy, shiftless and dangerous, all of Islam is trying to kill us, half of our population are treasonous communists, and machines are going to steal our souls.

    If I believed this plethora of nonsensical bat shit crazy tripe I would be a bitter old man too!

  3. In true ‘circle of stupid’ fashion an anonymous troll at Todd’s blog reposted my comment here and Todd called for me to weigh in. The answer is simple: don’t roll around with pigs in shit. It makes the pigs look better and the shit stink less. Let people see the pig in its natural habitat.

  4. Interesting. I saw a homeless guy in Nevada City sitting up against the tire of a filled and beat up mini van pounding away on a lap top while listening to Limbaugh on the car radio. Ironic.

  5. Here’s another classic from Todd:
    Gasoline is $2.40 at Sam’s Club in Roseville today.
    Posted by Todd Juvinall at 5:27 PM No comments:

    Guess what Todd? You can still buy gas for far less than $3.00 a gallon in our County, and ā€” better yet ā€” the taxes go to our County too. Amazing that a former County Supervisor would tout a meager savings in gas prices in a neighboring county. Not to mention all the gas you consume to get to Sam’s Club in Roseville from here.

    1. Here’s the mindset: “Honey, let’s jump in the car and drive as far as we can to save money on gasoline.” ROFLOL.

  6. BTW, Dave Larsen of Carmichael (AKA “fish”). Isn’t DSL technology “yesterday’s lettuce” compared to cable modem? ROFLOL.

  7. From Todd’s blog:
    “So he will just have to make fun of a posting on gas prices to keep himself from being 100% irrelevant here in God’s country. What a hoot!”

    “AnonymousDecember 22, 2014 at 6:41 AM
    He is 100% irrelevant”

    Yet this is ALL Todd’s blog and its commentators can write about. Even under a heading about “gas prices.” You can’t make this stuff up!

  8. I read this comment on Todd Juvinall’s blog:
    “Todd JuvinallMay 15, 2015 at 2:10 PM
    Just ran into a friend who saw Pelline at the NID meeting last night. They said he was huge! He looked uncomfortable just walking. I said is he ill?”

    I did not attend a NID meeting last night. It’s hard to believe this moron was elected to be a county supervisor. I’m glad we’ve evolved since.

  9. Todd’s blog is a cesspool; just ask Pastor Ron.
    And here’s how Todd covers for his mudslinging, dirtbag pals ā€” he lets them post as “anonymous”:
    “Todd Juvinall August 29, 2015 at 5:11 PM
    No, I want your real name. I know the others.”

  10. Another gem from Todd Juvinall’s blog:

    “AnonymousAugust 31, 2015 at 11:32 PM
    The purple prince of pus just reminded everyone of his equine hero’s worlds worst picture! Must have been the food porn directors trim from some event. Give the girl a worm farm carrot. He seems to think he is helping by reminding the world outside of the NC nirvana of who they are, its not so good for them. The fox puppet, the loser Fran Cole, of course the blob of the blog and Ruinits lacky Patricia Smith of the democrap central commie committee who all agree with each other about how great they are. A road show that failed again and again and is coming to a race near you soon! But it will be organic and sustainable. ROFLOL


    1. Proudly I’m a real person but that makes him think he can control and manipulate with bullying. Now if I were a FAUX News puppet his statement would have merit.

  11. These are some seriously sick people. Interesting how they tend to flock together, like bacteria in a petrie dish.

  12. I’m beginning to wonder if Mike Sherman, of all people, is a regular on Todd Juvinall’s blog, along with “fish,” etc. Without signing his name.

      1. Mike,
        You ought to be praying for Todd and his mud pit of a blog (along with with the anonymous commentary), just like Pastor Ron! Sorry to see you commenting there under your own name. I pray that Dr. Phil will have a “beer summit” with Todd, but it would be challenging even for him. LOL.

  13. What does Todd (AKA “Nevada City Guy”) do at his computer all day? To my knowledge, he does not have a computer-related job where he researches. He is a contractor albeit “inactive.”

  14. Oh, no. The “creatures of the night”/trolls are out nightstalking again on Todd’s blog. Hard to imagine Todd was ever elected a County Supervisor.

  15. An appropriate post on Todd Juvinall’s blog:
    “Richard SimmonsOctober 6, 2015 at 8:35 AM
    A bunch of childish clowns making fat jokes. The Toddling and the Fue Fighters are the face of local conservative politics in the sticks. Precious are the 12 year old minds of 60 something fools.”

  16. Except for George Boardman, the commenters on Todd’s blog are just trolls. That’s the best he can do. It should be renamed “Todd and the seven (or a few) trolls.” LOL.

  17. Todd Juvinall is jealous about Steve Frisch’s Other Voices column in The Union this morning, lashing out with unwarranted personal attacks. The real reason is that Todd wishes he could string two sentences together and spell “Breath” not “Breathe.” He misspelled that word for his blog and it’s part of the URL now. ROFLOL!

  18. In a classic twist someone just corrected former county supervisor and noted intillectual Todd Juvinall for misquoting Hitler.

  19. A reader forwarded this to me; I’m just passing it on with no comment:
    (Sung to the tune of the Beverly Hillbillies)
    Come and listen to a story about a man named Todd.
    A poor mountaineer that most thought was rather odd.
    He finally put down his keyboard and went to the loo.
    Then he sat down for dinner and ate some squirrel stew.

  20. Noting on Todd’s blog that he doesn’t know how to rhyme words either. Maybe he can drive a backhoe or something. LOL.
