I, Frank Jager, Robot

I am a nice guy.  Beep.

I get along with all groups.  Beep.

Except the enviros.  Beep.

They are extortionists.  Beep.

I want to be a Coastal Commissioner.  Beep.

But I think environmental protection is a racket.  Beep.

I’m middle of the road.  Beep.

I work well with Republicans. Beep.

I also like Democrats who act like Republicans.  Beep.

I have name recognition and that is power.  Beep.

    Del Norte County Supervisor Martha Mc Clure is nominated and looks like the best candidate for the CCC opening. Keep an eye on her.

    I worlked with Frank for years and I’ve always thought he was a poorly animated Disney atrifact.
    Absolutely priceless piece!

    The truth hurts doesn’t it! Frank Jager no business on the CCC. His only experience with environmental issues is his full support of the Marina Center. Gee, any connections! Wake up Eureka! Arkley will only be satisfied with a CCC member of his choosing so he will have free reign over the northcoast. Intelligence means nothing. Experience means nothing. Obedience means everything.
    Thank you Heraldo!

    Mr. A’s empire, his financed candidates and measures, his front group “Thugs for a Better Eureka” led by minion Gary Bird, the Marina Center, and his CCC puppets will bury you all. Methodically, one by one. We know who you are.

    Obedience means everything and you better get in line or you’re gonna get spanked like the errant children you are.

    Pretty funny and completely within normative bounds for political satire.

    Objectors here are simply trying to prevent people from openly acknowledging subjecting to ridicule one aspect of Jager’s demeanor. A significant portion of independent support for Eureka political conservatives is based primarily on image. So its no surprise that partisan conservatives will sharply criticize anyone pointing out image shortcomings. Their political power is at stake.

    Jager’s face always reminds me of the TV character Lurch of the Addams Family and Fred Gwynnne’s in the Munsters. But a clunky preprogrammed robot matches Jager’s public personality. He’s ex-cop, through and through.

    I think the recent Bass/Tyson post was inappropriate, but this one seems fine to me. It’s humorous while remaining true to the facts, and — at least to me — it doesn’t come off as mean-spirited.

    But if Jager really WAS a Hollywood-style robot, I would have expected that some of those contradictions would have been followed by “error…error…does not compute…DOES NOT COMPUTE…”

    tra, those Star Trek episodes are still kicking around in your gray matter.

    But au contraire, Jager is hardly logical enough to suffer any internal contradictions or self doubt. He’s more similar to an assembly line robot that runs just one program, even when its entirely inappropriate. Such as the feeding machine in Chaplin’s Modern Times. The Eureka populace can expect the same indignity that Chaplin experienced from the machine.

    Maybe I’m dating myself here, but my idea of a robot probably owes more to Lost in Space.

    NAN is not nice. So juvenile to even bring up a person’s physical appearance. To balance it out, I will mention that I have always found Mr Jager to be a good looking man. So there.

    The quote that made me snort milk through my nose this morning in today’s Times Standard article was “the the person who is nominated needs to be able to ‘sit down and work with all these groups,’ an ability Jager said he himself brings to the table.”

    Oh my! The final sentence in the article was the one that contains my only hope, “because you’re going to have to go through it all again when Gov. Moonbeam gets in.” I say, thank goodness!

    Time to search for a grown-up blog that can discuss hot button topics with wit, intelligence and careful thought. The Herald and the Mirror are both disappointments. Fred’s maybe? Or the blathering Henchman should give it a go?

    Slow news day today?

    How about this: Environmentalists crammed corn ethanol down our throats as an alternative “green energy” to fossile fuels like coal, oil, etc…Now, reps say corn ethanol is as bad or worse than that which it was supposed to replace – their reasoning is that they NOW HAVE THE PROPER RESEARCH DATA.

    So, there is a news story worthy of reparations.

    Except it was the farm lobby that sold us the corn derived methanol. If methanol is what you want, you can get many times more gallons per ton from sugar cane. That still doesn’t make it a good idea, only a cheaper one.

  25. longwind

    We can’t have methanol, you can drink it without going blind, and that’s a no-no. Cheap drinkers (of ethanol) have gone blind ever since Prohibition ended. Oh well. (they did it before too, but drunks in the know favored methanol.)

    The Jager/Endert team repeatedly complained that their opponents were inappropriately making the city council a “partisan race” in 2008.

    Once in office, Jager selected a group of partisans to chose a partisan to replace him.

    In a sharply divided community, even a troop of cub scouts would have understood the ethical fairness of either holding a special election, or simply appointing whoever won the second-highest votes for a vacated seat. (If our “representatives” were honestly interested in having all the city represented).

    In a rigged system, liars and hypocrites take-all.

    “Environmentalists crammed corn ethanol down…”

    Nice stereotyping Henchman. I don’t know any environmentalists who think ethanol is a good idea.

    Environmentalists have said that it actually takes more energy (mostly from fossil fuel) to manufacture ethanol than the energy it will provide (between fertilizer, transport, manufacturing, etc). They’ve said this for since at least the 1990s.

    Just because you or someone else says, “environmentalists say…” doesn’t make it so.

  31. owltotem

    You have to add the energy associated with manufacturing the farming equipment in order to tip the energy balance for ethanol to negative. The better arguments are that we do not need to combust carbon for transportation, and ag land, should be preserved for producing food, until a transformation in that industry trends toward sustainability. There is big big money in continuing our dependence on carbon combustion sources of energy production. Research and development are the keys to transforming the energy industry, not just more sources for oil.

    Sorry, Longwind. I put an M in front of ethanol where it doesn’t belong. My mistake.
