The village idiots in the local right-wing blogosphere

The rightwing blogosphere in western Nevada County sure lacks business acumen.

First we wrote how “Bored Georgeman” sold his stock portfolio before Donald Trump was elected president, missing out on the biggest stock market runup in decades.

And now Don Bessee writes on George Rebane’s blog: ”
HI PE! You still need fresh material my friend. ==== Now this is not a joke– The taxi cab drivers of NY have declared a strike to show solidarity with the immigration protesters. Uber stock up in overseas trading.”

Memo to Don:
1. No “overseas” trading tonight.
2. Uber is not public.

You can’t fix stupid.

    There are going to be hundreds of opportunities to oppose the ideas these idiots stand for.

    Protest LaMalfa and McClintock at their town hall meetings and sit in at their offices and tell them not to repeal the ACA, to stand up for science and to REALLY protect our Constitution.

    Get on the web sites tracking protest opportunities and go to marches and protests.

    Put our petty differences aside and stand up in solidarity for our allies–women, enviro’s, immigrants, science, labor, LGBTQ, and most important of all, working people and families–all of them, all across the country.

    Protest through arts and action.

    Most important of all–take Congress back in 2018; we can shift the 24 seats necessary to re-take the House and create a check against the un-Constitutional actions of the Executive branch.

    With the exception of a longtime “mouthpiece” such as The Union, this group is being marginalized more and more. It makes sense: We’re a diverse bunch. That’s been the point all along.

    I am no fan of the Union or Board Georgeman, but I think you’re being too hard on him about the stock portfolio issue. Wall Street does not like uncertainty, and tRump’s disruptions are as uncertain as it comes. Today the Dow fell–no surprise given the chaos over the weekend. There are SO many other reasons to criticize Boardman. I think the stock thing is the least of them.
