    I was really looking for some imagery of all the good little Republicans boarding Rob’s Ark before the start of the rainy season. And maybe a photo of an inside view, of all the fun they’re having riding around the ark on their pet dinosaurs.

    Since the Marina Center is going for that nautical vibe, you could also go with the Four Oarsmen and they could be in a coxed four racing shell with Rob as coxswain. Behind the boat, Linda Atkins could be flailing in the water from her misguided attempt to jump off the bridge and into the shell, while Larry (and his trusty kayak) paddles to her rescue.

    True, the oarsmen would have been funny. That’s what “Bugs” would have done, except that he loves everything Arkley, and hates everyone Arkley hates.

    City Manager Tyson is the ring leader and head sycophant in all of this. He been working hard to do his masters bidding for years now. He’s very please with himself, of course now he has bankrupted the city. What about the waterfront drive 20 million, what about the mostly unpaid bill for the EIR that is rumored top $300,000. What about all the deferred maintenance to the water and sewer infrastructure. and where’s almost 9 million from waste water enterprise fund? When the grand jury was wasting time look into the Police dept. they have been looking into Tyson. note to Tyson, STF away from my wife!

    C.W.F.D. ……and the fantastic four will be?

    The Four Horsemen

    The “Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” is a term used to describe a concept from the New Testament of the Christian Bible, in chapter six of the Book of Revelation. Although scholars disagree as to what exactly each horseman represents, the four horsemen are often referred to as Conquest, War, Famine, and Death. They are part of an apocalyptic vision in which God summons and empowers them to wreak divine havoc on the world. Each is revealed, individually, when the first four of seven seals are broken (opened) in Revelation.

    The Horsemen of Apocalypse is a team of fictional supervillain characters that appear in comic books published by Marvel Comics. The team is first mentioned in X-Factor #10 (vol. 1, November 1986), and makes their full appearance in X-Factor #15 (vol. 1, April 1987). They were created by writer Louise Simonson and artist Walt Simonson.

    The first comic book characters of this name, was a team of aliens from the race known as the Axi-Tun that attacked Earth in ancient and modern times. They appeared in Giant Size Fantastic Four #3 (November 1974).

    Axi-Tun – First appeared in Fantastic Four.[11] A humanoid race that appears much like tall humans, with an average height of 6’4″. They live on the planet Tun.[11] Axi-Tun have energy-manipulating powers. Axi-Tun have a level of technology superior to Earth’s, with the capability of faster than light travel.[11] Four Axi-Tun explorers crash-landed on Earth during World War II, and a Nazi scientist named Werner Schmidt named them after Teutonic gods.[11] These Axi-Tun battled the Invaders but committed suicide to keep their technology from falling into human hands.[11] Many years later, four Axi-Tun warriors calling themselves “The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse” attacked Earth but were defeated by the Fantastic Four.[11]

    Yes, they are the Fantastic Four.

    They are opposed by the evil villans; Larry Glass, Humboldt Paykeepers, Heraldo and (as a group) the counter culture people of Arcata.

    The villans are disguised as; The Joker (Larry Glass), The Club of Villians (Paykeepers), The Penguin (Counter Culture Arcata) and of course Homer Simpson (Heraldo).

    I hates that counter-culture thingy too. People look you in the face in the street and try to say hi and when you get to a busy street corner with a stop sign no one moves because they are too polite.

    I’m sick of the proggy agenda. What is wrong with these people? Don’t they realize that if they stop feeding and clothing and caring for them bums they will dissappear?

    I hope god sends these fine horseriders to clean up the streets of Arcata so that when Jesus returns he won’t be offended by the filth or beggars.

    You sure have that right about that Cleroy. Everyone knows that Jebus just hated the poor and sick. Clean it up before he gets here. Say, you don’t know the exact date do you? If we stop feeding and letting them shower right now, we can probably have all the bodies swept up before he gets here.

    Cleroy, you must believe in magic, people can simply disappear.

    You may be correct. Some of the best magicians who did that trick were Stalin, Pinochet, and the Argentine junta.

    Of course, skeptics of magic ask “Where are they?”. Argentinian de facto President, General Videla provided the answer: “They are neither dead nor alive, they disappeared”

    Cleroy, You are right on! Lefty& Not a Native, If you feel so strongly about the horrific homeless problem we have, please feel free to open you hearts, wallets,& homes to these bums, with all of our heart-felt gratitude. The rest of us that have live here know that no matter how much we try to help, they just need more & more & more & more & more…..etc. We can not afford the drain on our cities, no one in their right mind would come to this area for a job – these people just want to suck us dry. So STOP FEEDING THEM! They all have enough smarts to go where the food & housing is. I know there are many people in the city of Eureka that are sick of homeless problem & tired of trying to fix a problem that doesn’t want to be fixed! There are people in this town that make be bucks on the homeless & recovery problems. Until we run them out of town, things are not EVER going to change!

    Cartoon request:

    How about an ancient Marina Center “pyramid” with a laborer explaining that timeless “mid-life crisis”; the realization of a life spent building stuff that ultimately diminished public wealth, resources, and opportunity for generations to come?

    Archeologists actually found an ancient message on a large, buried stone that translated as: “we should have rebelled more”.

    Kind of like the hundreds of agency-concerns buried in the DEIR, including the CLC’s!

    Hey Heraldo, the pyramid structure of society is doing just fine, don’t rock the boat. If this was ain’tshit Egypt you’d be writing graffiti on a stone wall eating 3 hots in a papyrus cot. Oh wait, the paradise of Egypt land is the perfect place for snake charmers like you. Then you’d see what human progress can really do. The lush oasis of Egypt and the Nile is the perfect example of thousands of years of unchecked development. Whats your problem?

    and when you get to a busy street corner with a stop sign no one moves because they are too polite.

    It’s called spaced-out NorHum drivers. Nobody moves because they suck at driving. It ain’t politeness. Politeness is waving as you take your goddamned turn in the correct order.

    I’m sick of the proggy agenda. What is wrong with these people? Don’t they realize that if they stop feeding and clothing and caring for them bums they will dissappear?

    Federal money beefs up homeless services, especially in California college towns. Look at mfing Berkeley. Kids in Berkeley got hella money to blow on renting rooms in the hills, textbooks, books of acid, quaps, I mean fuck… but the government says Berkeley has a high poverty rate because all those no money making students who don’t live in dorms and get ducats from their rich ass parents count as impoverished. Northwest Oakland gets the overflow homeless from this situation while those folks still seek services in Berkeley like that one free clinic on Durant with the line down the street. Eureka is sort of like Oakland in more ways than one.

    I like homeless folks. They play a role in society. I kick down with money or weed or whatever. It seems fucked up when people want to disparage those hard on their luck just for being in that situation. There are a few bad seeds, but there are a few bad seeds in any group. Not everybody can live that comfy ass WASP life… that’d be boring as hell.

    Bullshit. All four of em’l bee waving thier hands simultaneously while stopping and starting in rapid progression. They often stall out. Throw a few bicyclists who ignore stop signs and pedestrians who walk behind the first car in line for their own safety and you have an average busy intersection in Arcata.

    I meant wave as you drive through. Never wave people through if you don’t have to.

    At least it’s not like down south where people make a sport of not stopping at the stop signs and then make songs about it like “you stop, I go.”

    All those same Arcata stop sign fools on the corridor is scary. You can tell who they are, cutting over when someone merges like they ain’t never merged before.

  52. 06em

    Driving pet peeves?

    1. People (I won’t call them drivers) who go into the center turn lane, only they leave about a third of the ass end of the car hanging back in the lane they just allegedly left.

    2. Owners of late model 4WD trucks (usually full sized ones with crew cabs) that could easily climb their beast over a cement barrier to access a parking lot but, on approaching a parking lot entrance, slow to a snails pace to … I guess … keep their giant knobby mudder tires from getting bruised by the 1/4 inch difference in height between the roadway and the parking lot entrance. These people are easy to spot ahead of time because the truck is super clean and looks to have never even been on gravel, let alone a dirt road. You won’t hurt your suspension! It’s a truck! Drive the damn thing.

    3. Tinted windows. This is a bit more subtle than a marijuana leaf bumper sticker, but seriously, nobody is fooled. I would imagine the tinted windows put your average cop into high alert as their mind starts imagining what all you might be doing behind that tinted glass. Trouble is, other drivers also can’t see what you’re doing, which makes it a little scary when we pass you, never knowing if you are watching the road ahead or are distracted by texting someone or reaching over to the glove box to get out your stash or putting on makeup or the million other things that people like you are doing right before you look back at the road and suddenly swerve to miss what might be a cement block (or maybe is just a empty box) but causes you to plow into us.

    3. Tinted windows.

    Damn, why is everyone hard on the frost tint? Stupid ass California laws make it so you gotta get two sets of windows so when the cops write you a fix it ticket, you can switch them out and get your car registered so you can put the tint back in afterwards. I love tint. I feel naked without tinted windows. I would put tint on a Pinto.

    People already do all kinds of stupid things without tint. People watch DVDs up in their car. People will be all eating a sandwich on the freeway. Tint isn’t to blame for people’s inattentive driving.

    [non-fiction]

    So I pull up to a stop sign in Arcata today. I see that a man is pushing a stroller with two small children in it. He’s almost to the cross walk so I wait even though it’s my turn and I could have roared through without hitting them.

    The guys barely past the middle line of the street when I look over and a middle age white lady in a small car is insistently trying to wave me through the intersection. Almost immediately the guy in the lane next to her revs his engine and acts like he’s going to pull out in front of me with a look on his face like I’m taking too long. The guy with his kids are still not quite to the sidewalk.

    So I just started yelling at them (even though my windows were rolled up). “Whats your problem?! Can’t you see there’s kids in there?!” etc.

    The lady get’s a sheepish grin on her face and I pull out in front of Sir Revsalot because the guy with kids has reached the safety of the sidewalk.

    I’m assuming these are not Arcata weirdos due to the overall normalcy of their appearance and demeanor. Both appeared middle age and relatively well-off.

    I want to note that this is not uncommon. Drivers often get impatient with me in Arcata when I don’t drive through an intersection due to pedestrians in the cross walk. WTF is your problem people?

    Most of you law and order types could give a rats ass about the law when it comes to driving, f-ing hypocrites…

  59. Mr. Nice
    November 10, 2009 at 3:56 pm

    It’s always good to go Eureka style and start yelling out the window.

    One thing you gotta realize is people slack on maintaining their vehicles around here so their brakes don’t work well. They get annoyed when other drivers stop because it wears on their shitty brakes. One time I seen some fool hollering out his window at some other driver talkin about “don’t stop like that!” because they stopped for a pedestrian waiting in the crosswalk. Crazy ass fool. I won’t describe who this grey bearded, feed cap wearing, silver truck driving guy looks like. Just watch out if you are trying to cross the street.
