PatriciaS 443pm - OK, then may we further assume that no one told you that "the County was a considering a complete ban on marijuana cultivation."? That question kind of hangs out there begging to be answered, given that Diaz never told you and you never stated that he told you the county was considering such a ban.
BarryP 437pm - Apropos to media popularity and ideological patronage, please see the links at the end of the addendum to my today's KVMR commentary the transcript of which posts in about 30 minutes.

KeenO 116pm - thanks for that update and the links. It never ceases to amaze how the lamestream omits the relevant factors of the case when reporting a politically incorrect shooting that displayed obvious evidence that the perp was exactly the kind of individual to have done what the police reported, and then to continue such reports while solicited riots were in progress and the case still under investigation. Whaddya think of the chances that the 'black leadership' who rushed in to fan the flames will now make public apologies?

JoeK 1037am - That is a very cynical accusation since the sequester was an across-the-board cut compromise that hit all government agencies. I take it back, it's not a 'very cynical accusation', it's bullshit. Here's what really happened, and it's a matter of the federal record not spin (aka lies). http://dailycaller.com/2014/10/14/obama-planned-to-cut-cdc-budget-for-public-health-preparedness-and-response/ Gregory 1027am - It was just another one of my clumsy attempts to be generous. Apologies.
PatriciaS 1021am - OK, I'll take your statements about Greg Diaz as a denial that he advised you about any future BoS regarding MMJ (even though your comment only attests to what you have "NEVER stated", and not what Diaz may or not have told you "about a pending ban"). Your contention then is with Mr Steve Smith, who may be someone's sock puppet.
A reader reminded me again that America's difficulty in imposing travel and entry bans is based more on political correctness and fear of being accused of racism by our Left, than on science. In a linked story we read "African countries, unburdened by any such racial guilt, have not hesitated to impose travel bans; Nigeria’s travel restrictions are now being credited for its escape from an Ebola incursion." http://www.city-journal.org/2014/eon1021hm.html
PatriciaS 537pm - Thank you Pattie for that clarification. I will note that in the my post above. And I think everyone understands your narrow interpretation of the concept of "ban". Don't know what to do about the claim of SteveS in his 740pm about who told you what. Since you're not denying the content of the message, only keeping the source confidential, we'll have to go with Mr Smith's allegation. It would be good to hear something from Mr Diaz about this. But that man lays so low, I recommend that no one holds his breath for that clarification.
BillT 401pm - sad tales indeed Mr Tozer. But that is the fundamental tenet of socialism, the state (under the guise of the 'peehpul') owns everything for the common good - and that includes your sorry carcass and everything concerning it. When all is said and done, you don't own shit because there is nothing that you can dispose of as you will. (Pardon my French)

JoeK 1023am - The poor reading skills of the Left are evident again (and it is they who created the 'spend more, learn less' government schools). My email of the FUE's latest blast at RR this morning demonstrates that he and his understand almost nothing of what is discussed here. For the record, nowhere have I blamed Obama for the Ebola epidemic in West Africa. But I and other observers have pointed out the ineptness with which the government in general and the Obama administration in particular have mishandled public health policies to combat Ebola in the US. I offer my reasoning for why this is the case. However, as usual such ponderings are beyond the liberals' ability to parse. It is what it is. (Bad practice to use unattributed quotes.)
Regarding the hard left's continuing battle with the First Amendment, the fight is heating up again with Wisconsin's latest court ruling that pushed back socialism's attempt to keep like-minded people from pooling ideas and resources to make their case during elections. The Democrat's assault on issues advocacy is beyond cynical in a republican democracy, and gives a foretaste of their fundamentally transformed Amerika. More was said about that here - http://online.wsj.com/articles/the-latest-speech-assault-1413845957?cb=logged0.6788293132643912

BillT 747am - Good thoughts and true. Limited breadth of leftist thought does not permit the consideration of returning to the laudable parts of the 50s without bringing along the civil rights abuses, anti-gay sentiments, ... . To their minds the factors of God, country, individual liberties, entrepreneurship, ... are inseparable from the former. It is a calcified mindset carefully embedded by government schools and maintained by the lamestream. fish 748am - Thank you for the reprise of those truths which have been part and parcel of the 'Obama alarums' that RR introduced to its readers in 2008 during the man's candidacy. We should never forget, that his lack of executive experience combined with his Marxist ideology goes a long way to explain away the disasters he has brought on the land. (The national question that continues to puzzle people like me is why the blacks, Hispanics, and Jews voted for him in such numbers; but that's a topic for another day.)

The Cook/Sauer dust devil has received more impetus with Ms Cook's resignation from The Union's Editorial Board. I invite your kind attention to the 20oct14 update to this post.
Thank you gentlemen, I get the picture. Let's read his book and see if he's mended his ways.
So far we have heard that Savage does not wrap very nicely the message he delivers. However, no word yet on any bad/false messages. We must remember he, like I, are commentators and not journalists. And yes, wrapping messages nicely is better. But what if his particular messages are still important and don't come better wrapped from anyone else?
I have not listened to Savage on his regular program, but I have heard him on interview and pundit shows. I have found nothing he has said that is a blatant lie or even a bent truth (but, of course, you know my biases). He has not made me or anyone I know hate anything or anybody. So I'm wondering, is all this savaging of Savage based on something that he has said (quotes please) or written that makes him unacceptable to some on the Right? The Left, of course, does not have to explain itself since everything Savage and others of his ilk say is unacceptable to them; however, if any of these readers have something that they know about Savage and think it can reach across the abyss, then please weight in.
fish 414pm - "... worst possible messenger that the conservative movement could hope for." What, pray, earns Dr Savage that attribution?

SteveS 804pm - Yes, it is an item of consternation and sorrow. But foolish men can make laws and ask questions that no wise man can answer. Is this one of them, or do you have an answer?
PaulE 605pm - I take it that you are quoting authority here in stating that out-of-state shipping to legitimate MMJ users in permitting jurisdictions is illegal. If that indeed is true, then S not mentioning that kind of exporting is moot, and the inference will be corrected in my post. I gain nothing in making erroneous claims. Now, how can we verify that such inter-state exporting is indeed illegal by law? Where are the pro-S experts when we need them?
PaulE 318pm - Gotta hang on to what I said, not what you think that I thought (there's that penetrating power of the progressives). There is nothing wrong with growing MJ in commercial buildings as long as it is in conformity with state law as further refined by local ordinances. Who knows, if properly configured and appropriately 'insulated', growing in commercial buildings might be the best place of all with regard to ag controls, security, and nuisance factors. My #4 just highlighted an aspect of S that some anti-S people find to be a concern in Nevada County. I am not one of them, and can see a future amendment to 2349 that would make such indoor grows possible.
PaulE 306pm - I think you'll have to hang on to your 'beef' for a bit longer. Since you're doing some pretty precise wordsmithing there, and no pro-S activist wants to contradict what was said/implied last Thursday, I'll maintain the wording with heavy emphasis on the "enable" part to produce and export MMJ. Unless you can demonstrate that such excess MMJ may not be legally exported to other legitimate MMJ users living in out-of-state jurisdictions where MMJ consumption is legal, then the implication is fully in force - Measure S does nothing to prevent such exportation, but does "enable" the growth of sufficient product to provide that alternative to the growing collectives.
