We do need a WALL....Trumpty

Ban on cannabis??? Booze prohibition!!

  A ban on cannabis is not something new?  It has always been illegal in Calaveras County. It does not matter. People have been growing it anyway since the 60's. One member of the public admitted that he has.

   So what good would a new ban do. It would just keep the illegal growers growing and make the honest growers stop.  How stupid are the residents of Calaveras anyway. Banning, or making it illegal like they did Prohibition of booze in the 20's, is just a way of bringing up more criminals to get rich.

Temporary pot-smoking sheriff says BAN

   So, what is the reason that our temporary pot smoking Calaveras Sheriff want to BAN marijuana in the county.

And behind Blue Tarp # 3....mug shot???

   We have to tell you that the photo of behind Blue Tarp # 3, which we have now received back, blown up for identification, looks just like a mug shot, an ugly one at that.

The USA is in trouble BIGLY?? Believe us!!

      We are reviewing the video tape from the January 24, 2017 Calaveras Supervisors meeting to be certain of what Dennis Mills, Calaveras Supervisor of District 4 said about cannabis farmers.

   We are pretty certain he called them 'TERRORISTS", but want to make sure we didn't hear it wrong.  Is this man as totally demented as he was on the CCWD board. If it is true, he should be recalled immediately.

Where was the Calaveras County Office of Emergency Services???

   Since Calaveras Supervisor Oliveira has admitted he can't handle any type of stress and didn't know what to do when the snow storms and ice hit Ebbetts Pass, why didn't he order OES to help us?

  It was dangerous; the county was NOT plowing, people were trapped with no heat and no power, and what was Oliveira doing? Blowharding, as usual???

Angels Camp Police: Do you know this 'stranger'?

If you know or have seen this man,
please call ACPD
      According to the Angels Camp Police, on January 23, 2017 they were made aware of a man who reportedly approached a high school student walking home earlier in the afternoon.

Ebbetts Pass iced over and buried in SNOW!! Where is Supervisor Oliveira???

   With the past three storms, Ebbetts Pass has been buried in snow, iced over, left to fend for themselves because they have NO Supervisor, and bewildered as to what to do about it.

   We have heard that Calaveras County Supervisor for District 3 allowed NO plows to plow the streets of people he didn't think voted for him, and never even answers the phone when someone needs help.  He is the WORST Supervisor we have EVER seen. One person told us he was drunk most of the time. We have not yet confirmed this.


RECALL Supervisor Oliveira in Calaveras County -- BULLY, GUN FREAK!!!

  The voters in Calaveras County, District 3 need to recall this fanatic BULLY and GUN Freak who thinks he has FULL control of all the people in Ebbetts Pass.

Alternate Universe---Calaveras County divided too!!

   While we are all aware that the ILLEGITIMATE President Trump lives in an alternate universe, believes in alternate facts, and has severe mental problems, are we aware how divided our own Calaveras County is?

   The Trumpers and BOOZERS in Calaveras gave false statements to get signatures, failed in many cases to show the written proposition, and are the biggest bunch of scum, we are told, of anywhere in Northern California.  These are NOT the nice people who care about us. They are the racist dividers who also live in the Vickie Reinke TEA PARTY wacko universe like TRUMP.



This is about BOOZERS!!!

   The 5 people who are the main pushers, and they are nothing more than pushers, of a cannabis ban in Calaveras County, are now exposed as total BOOZERS.

   Supervisor Oliveira is one of them. Billus McmAnus is another, Some guy named TuNNEL and another wacko gun freak have been referred to us as collective BOOZERS.  They don't want and may be getting cash in their pockets to stop marijuana.

What did Calaveras do with the MONEY from farmers???

   Calaveras County has some crazy elected officials in office, but when a member of the public asked what the Supervisors did with the MILLIONS they collected from legitimate cannabis farmers, gun maniac and boozer Oliveira was called a liar by

Supervisor Oliveira is the meanest BULLY of all!!

   It has been clear for the past two years that Supervisor of District 3 Oliveira, the gun maniac and non-resident supposed representative in Ebbetts Pass, is the worst BULLY, mean creep and BOOZE fanatic in the county.

   He just now told the audience who DARED to clap after a person went to speak at the podium, warned that he would take OTHER measures if they don't shut up!!  We have GOT to get rid of him.

Wierdo Kellyanne Conway says now....

   Kellyanne Conway, and actually anyone who thinks Trump is sane, doesn't understand women or their issues or fears of Trump. Yes, she's a nut case, just like him.

   About the women (millions of them) who have been marching against Trump, she says "I frankly didn't see the point."  Yes, she appears to be as big a mental case as her boss. She thinks its good that women won't have rights anymore.

And Madonna says....

   Although Madonna is now living in England, she still loves the US.  She attended the millions of women who marched against Trump on Saturday.

   In her speech she said "I have often thought of burning down the White House!".  She was, of course, speaking metaphorically about how the country is being destroyed by racists, sexual deviants and cowards.

You've heard of fraudulent traffic claims, law suits???

  Yes, we've all heard about people who get witnesses together and then file false claims or lawsuits against others, especially involving traffic, just to make money.
