Hoover sucking again!

Peace be with you

(full movie via videosift.com)

Arcata recently got accused by the L.A. Times of being a major commercial marijuana production sight. Now, the N.Y. Times has joined the party with an article and a video. The whole story is based on one burnt house, even this Fox news clip uses the same footage. Watch the Fox news story and you’ll hear the talking head say, “listen to the the editor of the local paper tell how the “growers” are ruthlessly exploit the law.” Kevin Hoover, author of the bigoted “police logs I & II,” then talks about how “the marijuana industrial industry. . . has taken over ‘our square.'” The homeless know which landlords and busyness owners Hoover’s “our plaza” refers to. And everyone of them probably got their “property” with the aid, to one extent or another, of “the marijuana industrial industry” money.

Perhaps Hoover really blames the homeless for creating “the marijuana industrial industry” in Arcata. He must imagine homeless people renting apartments, spending a bunch more money on expensive ass equipment, planting some plants and then moving to the streets to sleep in the rain. I don’t know why Hoover is stirring up such a shit storm, but it looks like Rollin’s refer madness has taken root up Hoovers ass.

There are going to be federal raids in Arcata. Because one baby citizen cane whines Arcata will be filled with feds, fed dollars and fed guns. Thanks Hoover I’m sure all the broken lives and imprisoned non-violent pot smokers behind bars, will make you sleep at night. Brian told me, once before he died, that the reason he sold Hoover pot was because he believed Kevin had no friends and he felt sorry for him. “Tad you got to go Kevin is coming over,” Brian would say. Brian always hoped the pot would awaken something lost in Kevin, but at last it seems he failed.

If people are cheating on their Marijuana scripts, the we should rejoice that they aren’t Rush Limbaughing it with oxycontin. It’s only pot for crying out loud. Stand up against the filling of private for-profit prisons with our community, and remember to boycott the bigoted, refer madness propagandizing, Arcata LEye tabloid.

    Tad: Way to speak out against a man who has taken to Michael Moore tactics in order to, yes, take part in the destruction of other peoples lives. When the feds do come, it’s going to be the dispensaries that pay the biggest price, and as a result, the actual compassionate use community in Arcata will be without medicine for a long time, which is NOT OK for those patients who actually NEED that medicine!

    Yeah Kevin, way to go man. You sure showed those violent pot growers who is boss! Keep prowling the neighborhoods like a freaking burglar casing your targets, keep up your agressive and despicable “journalism” (which by the way is hardly that – You use more condescending remarks and opinionated statements in your stories than a high school opinion writer) and then sit back and watch as hundreds of harmless pot heads have their lives ruined worse than you can even imagine.

    Is it bad to hope that Mr. Hoover some day gets his own life destroyed by feds for some reason or other? We already know he’s in cahoots with the dude who is trying to open that $750,000 pot facility near the plaza, and that guy is nothing but criminal scum who is certainly aiming to grow 100 lights of pot and give away 1 ounce per patient per month, but if you look at those numbers, there will be a lot of unaccounted-for marijuana going somewhere! You can bet that excess pot will be sold out the backdoor at street prices, and much, much black market income will be made from it.

    Yeah, Hoover isn’t really doing for the community what he thinks he’s doing. What is the community anyway? Obviously it is made up of marijuana growers, and the rest simply benefit from the economic stimulus so much free flowing cash brings to our county. I mean, the New York Times says 1 in 5 houses is a grow house, doesn’t that mean Hoover is taking on 20% of his home town? Sounds like a bad idea to me.

    Tad, Tad, Tad …

    Every sane person knows that pot should be legal. But if you want to cash in on Prohibition, then don’t bitch and whine and cry about the injustice of it all if you’re busted.

    On the subject of the Eye you guys are just delusional, and that’s all that really needs to be said. He’s called you on your bullshit, and years later you’re still trying to tamp down your shame. Seek help.

  3. theplazoid Says:

    Peace be with you Hank, Hank, Hank …

    What “bullshit” are you referring to? What shame? You seem to be the deluded one here. You think Kevin “baby Cain” Hoover calls any one out, ever? Get the fuck off it Hank, Hoover is a bigot who makes his money hating poor people and capitalizing on their misery. I’ve read your “dandy” gossip column and it appears now one tabloid is cumming in the rear, I mean, to rescue of the other. Why don’t you take your little dandy-boy ass back over to your blog where gullible sheeple believe your bullshit. Most readers here have seem the lies in the LEye and know its bullshit spin from a bullshit spin-doctor.

  4. Hank Sims Says:

    Peace be upon you, tad:

    You have readers? I thought you were still doing that thing where you write back and forth to yourself, about yourself, under different names.

    Bullshit: The free state thing you guys had going on near the Marsh a few years back. Shame: The fact that your posse — the “Frees” — was rightly spanked over the issue, and never recovered what tiny sliver of credibility it may have once had.

    The thing you never understood, Tad, is that Kevin is a nice guy. He actually gave you the time of day for a little while. He enjoys people like you — eccentrics — at least until you start issuing fatwas.

    I’m not a nice guy. I’ll kick your scrawny self-righteous self up and down the blogs or in whatever medium you care to take it to, for just as long as it amuses me to do so and no longer.

    Now. Does this little exchange of ours mean that you will rain nonsensical invective down upon the Journal for years to come, and will seek every opportunity to slander and belittle our work? No doubt. Largely because you have nothing else to do.

    Do I care? Not in the slightest. Why not? Because the only people you have any influence over whatsoever is a small handful of drunken hobos even more fucked up than yourself, and the fact that your crew sees us as it special enemy will redound to our credit amongst the 99.5 percent of Humboldt County who think you a pernicious fool.

    And then, finally, Tad, you will have accomplished something.

    love eternal,

    I read Tad’s blog. Even post to it occasionally. I’m not a hobo though would prefer the company of humble hobos to the “nice guys” who make stuff up and spend their time trashing anyone they feel cannot fight back in order to elevate themselves, at least in appearance, above their bottom of the social ladder place. Karl Rove is a “nice guy” with soft, baby-like features, Stalin was noted for his all night parties.

    While I doubt that the nomination of Barak Obama signals the end of the age of bullies, people are getting fed up with bullies and bullying tactics and realizing that it is no substitute for rational discussion, compassion and the other mechanisms generally associated with civilization.

    I would be interested to know more about how the 99.5% figure was ascertained Mr. Sims. Possibly by the same method that the “1,000 grow houses” was. I suspect “Humboldt County” refers to your one small cluster fuck that sees itself as being in a pissing contest in which their own small voices in this small community are louder than, well, Tad’s and homeless people. I wouldn’t advocate boycotting the Eye or NCJ but really don’t know many people who read them and do not see what their publication hopes to accomplish or what their pulishers feel they may have accomplished.

    Personally I don’t do marijuana.

    But I did read the L.A. times “article”
    and just read this blog post about the “article.”
    My main interest is in doing a side-by-side
    comparison of these two viewpoints.
    And to closely, closely analyze the ways
    that print and blog media present (or spin if you like)
    their arguments.
    As a college graduate—-(found out too late, a huge waste
    of money. My recommendation: go for one year, two year
    tops and drop out……)——I am constantly amazed by
    how one can be dooped relying just on one or two sources
    of information. Which I don’t do anymore, with any
    issue close to any significance…………. Tue. June 10, 2008.
    An Aside:

    A TRILLION dollars is 1000 billion dollars which is
    1,000,000 million dollars, which is $1,000,000,000,000.

    During the 1930’s German paper money went to
    bazillion marks to buy a loaf of bread. Look it up in the
    history books…………..
    German Marks 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000
    ……. look at it this way, can you wipe your butt with
    paper money, not conveniently. Toilet paper is better made
    for that use, maybe as an energy source, burn it for heat ?

    AMERICA IS in serious, serious, serious trouble.

  7. Copernicus Jones Says:

    The Marijuana Industrial Complex is alive and well. There wont be any Feds, grow up, this town is too small, its roadkill on the DrugWar Highway. Rome rotted from the inside, whats wrong with hundreds of millions of dollars tax free???

  8. maryo Says:

    I encourage all of you to take a little trip to Humboldt county. It is, as I have told many, unlike any other part of the country. Arcata is full of homeless people who have made the difficult trip through the Redwood Curtain for the express purpose of finding unlimited pot to smoke. These ‘citizens’ smoke, sleep, panhandle and have sex in public places. They have taken over the town square despite efforts to remove them. Arcata, once a pretty little town with ‘high’ ideals, is no longer a safe and peaceful place to live. Many of the ‘harmless’ pot growers have weapons, as do many of those who wish to rip them off. And more and more gang-types from the Bay Area have taken up part-time residence in the county to get in on the action.
    Walk down the street in Arcata, and then ask youself if you would want to stay there. Unless your main reason for existance is to smoke pot, I believe your answer would be ‘no’.
    And Arcata is the tip of the iceberg. Go into the mostly rural part of this county and you can see for yourself what is going on. House after house tucked back in the hills, many or most with growing and processing rooms, many with marijuana growing in the open with a permit to grow posted alongside. The ‘legal’ 99 plants are in the open and the rest are hidden in the barn or the attic.
    People who have been convicted of growing and distributing sit on some of the town boards. These folks are not going to be interested in cracking down on illegal activities.
    I wish a major news network would conduct a thorough investigation of where the money comes from in Humboldt county. It would shock and amaze.

    Peace be with you Hank

    It seems that you view the “bullshit and the shame” from the same “Freestate Issue.” I feel no shame over that protest. I am sorry that the cops had the punk who busted up peoples property, and threatened the protesters lives, spread eagle on the ground, and let him go. I knew he was a provocator when he really, really wanted to “kick someone’s ass,” yet wouldn’t when I offered mine to be kicked. We called the cops and asked for him to be removed, but they just let him go. Surely some one must of called about a person matching his description bashing up cars and shit. I never heard about the car smashing ’til weeks later, but when I did every description I got was him. It’s not our fault the cops wouldn’t give us equal protection.

    We were well organized and overcame Connie Stewart’s “we aren’t going to talk about this again.” By god people are talking about it now! The problem is that all the news papers view this as a pest problem, not a human problem. Your’s is probably the best we have in Northern Humboldt, and from your “because the only people you have any influence over whatsoever is a small handful of drunken hobos even more fucked up than yourself” statement we see that honesty is not your aim.

    No Hank, I’m proud of that protest, much prouder then all the days I’ve spent in some factory, or the worker end of some tool. It educated some people and opened up an important dialog which has yet to end. Plus, next time someone did a protest like that, it was bigger and more in your face, a trend I forecast as the numbers of homeless and their supporters grow.

    It is obvious that you’re a big fan of Kevin’s. I’m sure a lot of other busyness owners see “eye” to eye with that, but here we know how Kevin makes up facts to bolster his “busyness owner’s like me appeal.” Lying and sensationalizing something to make homeless people look worse then they are to sway public opinion against them is by definition bullshit and bigotry.

    Plus the stereo typical insults Hoover uses against all homeless is also bullshit in the “that’s fucked up” definition of the word. My distrust of all media I haven’t witnessed myself is increased when facts and slants are intentionally manipulated to insult me

    What is the difference between “out-of-control”
    marijuana proliferation and “out-of-control”
    pharma. drug(like oxycontin- peddled as a “pain killer”, and so is
    marijuana, among other reasons.) proliferation?

    Is the difference that marijuana users are a lower-income
    group as a whole compared with pharma. prescription drug addicts,
    a la Rush Limbaugh (not-a-dogeater, that’s an inside joke)?

    If there is a crime problem in Arcata or whereever, then
    give every citizen a concealed Weapon Permit, especially the
    female citizenry. Put the fear of God in those who commit
    crimes against innocent individuals. The “government”
    will not protect you, never has, never will.

    “non violent pot-smokers”

    “it’s only pot”

    really, buddy? you think smoking in front of babies and young children – any children? is non violent? you’re just swell.

    you may want to do a simple google seach on what smoking ‘only pot’ does to one’s body. It’s sort of gross.

    I say good on Hoover, and keep it up.

    I’d also again like to thank the homeless-by-choice stoner who pissed on our car the other night in the infamous disgusting plaza. He (and they) contribute nothing to society, nothing to themselves. DO they even have a purpose in life? um, no. I’d like to go take a big fuckin’ dump on that pathetic fool’s face.
