Eric Kleinfelter .....He's BAAACKK!

   Eric Kleinfelter, who is supposedly part of California Fish and Game (you remember, the mountain lion killer club) came to public comments on Tuesday at the Supervisors meeting September 11, 2012.

   Peter Racz reminded they needed to clean up their act at Fish and Game, that the way they treat people is depicable!

   Kleinfelter was trying to get MORE money to trap and kill animals in Calaveras County. Well of course he was. We bet he was on the dole when he spoke.

Bonnie Newman..The good, the bad and the very ugly!

   Bonnie Newman, who speaks at nearly every Board of Supervisors meeting, went into a rant that she was worried Ricky Gill, Republican candidate for Congress in Lodi, is trying to take away her reproductive rights.  That was very, very ugly!

   But probably true!
 
   She also told Supervisor Spellman to SHUT UP!  Now that's a good thing!
  
   The bad thing is that she can't possibly be thinking about having children at her age, could she? What reproductive rights is she going to lose?

    Me thinks she hangs out with a ditsy water bird way too much! It's catching!
