Editor,

If anyone needs help in realizing it’s time for Newsom to go, just look at his latest proposal. Facing a budget shortfall, his plans include cutting first responders in addition to shrinking prisons. What could possibly go wrong if we have more criminals on the streets and fewer police officers to deal with them? Meanwhile, the state is starting to give out money to those here illegally who didn’t get a stimulus check. We need an overall change in leadership. Voting the same way term after term while expecting major changes that help us is the definition of insanity.

So sad that Newsom's planned largess for all the CA downtrodden will have to be put on hold unless the Feds ladle out some $$$. I knew Newsom was liberal but I didn't know just how far left liberal he was.

Recall Newsom!

Well said, Mr. Guttenbeil. I see three extreme TDS-sufferers, Davey, Jerry, and Mikey have already posted comments. When the Democrat playbook tells them to jump, they ask how high and for how long. I'm surprised the SMDJ printed your letter since you're going against the flow. Bravo!

Terence,

Sorry I didn't see your reply until this evening (The 21st). Just wanted to check and see if you had a typo when you put Democrat playbook rather than Democratic playbook? I wondered if you were following Donald's lead because he uses that regularly and he doesn't have a very good command of the English language or if you knew it was improper and wanted to use it on purpose as a slur?

Terence Y

Mr. Tafhdyd Amaral, I’m glad you agree that when Democrats tell you to do something, you do it wholeheartedly. The term Democrat has been used for over 200 years so it's far from improper. I’d ask if you are being obtuse on purpose, but then I remember what Amos Bronson Alcott said that fits you to a T, "To be ignorant of one's ignorance is the malady of the ignorant."

Terence,

Nowhere did I say I followed the Democratic playbook. I asked you if you knew the difference. Democrat is the noun relating to a member of the Democratic party when capitalized or just relating to an advocate of of democracy when not. Democratic is the adjective to describe something of a Democrat. A playbook of a Democrat is a Democratic playbook. A simple question seems to be something you don't answer very often. You change the subject and add one of your sayings. I know you love Donald more than you love our country but you don't have to act like him in every little way.

Terence Y

Mr. Tafhdyd Amaral, you don't deny being ordered around by the Democrat playbook. As for your question, let me get out of my office chair, check the motor oil in my sports car, go mail my Internal Revenue Service return, and then get a library book on attributive nouns before I write a response. Oh wait, my previous sentence includes multiple examples of nouns acting as adjectives (attributive nouns), similar to Democrat playbook. So no, definitely not a typo. I'm glad you enjoy the quotes.

Tafhdyd

Terence,

You confirmed what I expected you to say. This is the Memorial Day weekend and I am curious if you were drafted or if you enlisted to serve our great country?

Tafhdyd

Thumbs up to both JME and JustMike650. I am surprised the right wing nuts haven't been posting.

JME

Our governor deserves praise for his leadership during this COVID19 crisis

The White House should follow his example.

JustMike650

Too early, misread as Joe Gutter ball

ALMC

If only the disgrace and stain that's sitting in the oval office would have followed this governor's early lead in ordering SIP early, thousands of lives would have been saved. Nice job Donald.

Mr. Comolli, you should heed George Bernard Shaw, “Beware of false knowledge: it is more dangerous than ignorance.” Thank you, President Trump, for saving 2 million plus people from dying and for saving 22 million plus people in CA from infection. Thanks Newsom, for cratering CA's economy - that will be your legacy.

Tafhdyd

Terence,

As long as you want to talk figures that could have been with no intervention of any kind, "worse case scenario", don't forget to talk about what could have been with more intervention. Thank your orange boy for killing 50 thousand more (so far) and infecting millions more than needed to be. I have asked before from Trump supporters about the value of human life in dollars but never get an answer.

Terence Y

Nice try, Mr. Tafhdyd Amaral. The blame squarely falls on China and the WHO. For Memorial Day, please stop with your stark TDS ravings and pay respects to the fallen military personnel who fought so you can live in a free country (well, relatively, due to this overblown media driven coronavirus panic thing).

Tafhdyd

Terence,

I am glad to see you agree with my intervention figures and as expected you try to put the blame for a delayed response by the current administration on China.

Item #1, as of this time (approx.1:45 PM) you haven’t answered my question from the 23rd. Were you drafted or did you enlist to serve our great country? Item #2, I am still curious what your dollar figure is for a human life and item #3, I do pay respects on Memorial Day along with the 4th of July and Veterans Day.

Terence Y

Mr. Tafhdyd Amaral, I'm sorry you don't understand the blame falls on China and the WHO. As for item 1, it's classified. As for item 2, it's obvious that any dollar figure is more than what Democrats attribute to a human life - zero, nothing, nil, nada. How many future Nobel prize winners and how many future doctors who may have discovered cures to as yet incurable diseases have been killed due to abortion and post-term abortion? Please stop blindly following the Democrat playbook and learn to think independently. You owe it to yourself.
