Casey Lucius Runs For Congress

Good luck, you will need it running against Sam the sham, even when you support same sex marriage and abortions.

Politics

In a YouTube clip announcing her run, Lucius said voters who are concerned about jobs, water, the environment and national security should support her so “we can create a new beginning.”

In the “Issues” section of her website, CaseyLucius.com, she said she supports gay marriage, is concerned about climate change but wants to limit global spending, supports the Second Amendment and abortion rights in the first six months of a pregnancy.

“On the Central Coast, we have a gang problem, not a gun problem,” her website states.

Sam Farr & Our Military Bases

What? Sam The Sham would do all he could to eliminate the armed services from his district so he can come up with more reuse committees.

A bipartisan congressional caucus focusing on civilian neighbors of military installations is being formed with Rep. Sam Farr, D-Carmel, and Kansas Republican Rep. Lynn Jenkins as co-chairmen.

Farr credited creation of the House Defense Communities Caucus to Monterey City Manager Fred Meurer and Fort Ord Reuse Authority Executive Officer Michael Houlemard’s work on dealing with Fort Ord’s closure in 1993 and the subsequent forging of agreements between the remaining military posts and the city of Monterey for municipal services.

Farr made the remark Tuesday when Immigration and Customs Enforcement Chief Julie Meyers was addressing concerns about federal raids of illegal immigrants before the House Homeland Security Appropriations Subcommittee, which Farr sits on.

“What happens is the public image of you becomes one of not this compassionate law enforcement agency but essentially a Gestapo-type agency that is knocking down doors,” Farr said, according to preliminary transcripts of the hearing.

Meyers interrupted Farr and said: “We are not the Gestapo.”

Replied Farr: “I appreciate that, and I know that. I’m just telling you that there is a very ill will public opinion in the counties I represent about ICE.”

Farr has not withdrawn the remark. He said it came from the impression many of his constituents have of ICE, which periodically rounds up people without proper documents and deports them.

Over in Sam’s represented county, crime is out of control, there are Mexican gang members shooting each other all over town at and hard working businesses getting robbed every week. Even the Mayor of Salinas had his home burglarized. It’s certainly not the ICE agents causing the crime wave, Sam the Sham shows his support for the criminals and not the protectors.

U.S. Reps. Sam Farr (D-Carmel) and Jon Porter (R-Nevada), introduced a bill Wednesday to lure more visitors to the United States.

The “Improving Public Diplomacy through International Travel Act” calls upon the secretary of state to enhance diplomatic relations with foreign countries and to advance domestic business interests abroad by establishing a competitive grant program with a budget of $50 million in matching funds over the next five years.

. . individual grants would range from $150,000 to $1 million, with participants required to come up with matching funds and develop international travel programs focused on the country’s top five overseas markets, beginning with Canada the first year and adding Mexico, United Kingdom, Japan and Germany in subsequent years.

Spinach Poisoning People Again, Gets Recalled

popeye spinach

A Salinas Valley spinach grower issued a voluntary recall late Tuesday for bagged spinach after lab tests confirmed the presence of salmonella. The recall involves 8,118 cases of bagged spinach distributed by Metz Fresh LLC of King City and processed by a contract facility in Watsonville.

Sold under the Metz Fresh label, the spinach was sold to retail outlets and food service providers across the United States and Canada in 10-ounce and 16-ounce bags, as well as in 4-pound cartons and in 2.5-pound four-pack cartons, with tracking codes 12208114, 12208214 and 12208314.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, salmonella bacteria live in the intestinal tracts of humans and animals, including birds. Undercooked eggs, poultry or meat are the most common sources of salmonellosis in humans, although other foods, such as vegetables, may be contaminated.

WHAT? AGAIN? After all that money the Sam “the Sham” Farr took from taxpayers to ensure safe veggies?? Where did that money go anyway?

Letters From The Editor

Sam Farr has been our representative more than 14 years now. Under his leadership, Salinas has become overwhelmed by gang violence, King City High School and Hartnell College have lost accreditation, and we have endured our third and fourth decades of water rationing.

But don’t be too critical, folks. Sam Farr is working hard to impeach our president, cure global warming and serve his jury duty.

. . and spend lots of your tax dollars while doing it

Sam The Sham Still Wasting Taxpayer Dollars

Farr Piggy

When it comes to saving taxpayer dollars, U.S. Rep. Sam Farr receives low marks, according to a study released Monday by the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste.

Farr, D-Carmel, scored just 5 percent on the group’s annual congressional rating. The score was lower than both the average 9 percent for House Democrats and the average 29 percent for House members.

The group rated 21 key votes in the Senate, including votes to reduce spending in appropriations bills, enact earmark reform and repeal the estate tax. The average Senate score was 44 percent.

Sam The Sham Farr Named ‘Porker Of The Month’

Farr Piggy

Citizens Against Government Waste today named Rep. Sam Farr, D-Carmel, the nation’s Porker of the Month for adding $25 million for spinach growers to the fiscal 2007 emergency supplemental bill.

The House of Representatives will soon vote on the U.S. Readiness, Veterans’ Health and Iraq Accountability Act of 2007, which costs $21 billion more than the President’s request — mostly because of domestic spending unrelated to military operations added by lawmakers to the bill.

Sam The Sham loves to spend our money. Not in any way that is helpful to most Americans, just those that vote like him, in lock step with Democrats. Heck, if Farr needed to make a right turn, he’d spend more time and money by turning left three times.

Back in October the Californian reported
that Sam was requesting ‘only’ 6 million for e. coli research. Looks like with each left turn the cost goes up . . .

Or taxpayer money well spent…

Nearly two years after installing a series of overhead lights along a section of the Recreation Trail, Sand City officials may have to tear them down.

That’s because, according to state Coastal Commission staff members, the current lights pose “adverse impacts to the sensitive dune(s) by altering nocturnal conditions in a manner that could affect species composition and behavior.”

According to Mayor David Pendergrass, Rep. Sam Farr, D-Carmel, brought up the lights issue to the Coastal Commission. Farr spokesman Alec Arago said the congressman had “expressed concern about the aesthetics of the lights.

“aesthetics of the lights”? This is not a wild remote nature preserve we have here, they are beside a frontage road that parallels a freeway. The recreation trail attracts people and promotes healthy alternative to cars. It needs to be safer.

Newcomer Challenges Sham Farr

As one letter from the editor puts it, an empty chair would be preferable to Sam The Sham

With one candidate vanished from the 17th District House of Representatives race, two are still in the running for the position in November.
U.S. Rep. Sam Farr, D-Carmel, who has held the seat since 1993, faces newcomer Jeff Taylor, a last-minute Republican write-in candidate who supplants Anthony De Maio in next Tuesday’s election. De Maio, a finance entrepreneur whose name remains on the ballot, did not return repeated calls for comment.
