Up for Debate: Tieche, Gotto out at Elections

Friday, May 10, 2013 at 12:30am

Are the moves for Albert Tieche to be fired as elections administrator and Jim Gotto to resign from the commission good or bad? Surprising? Not Surprising?

Sounds like more trouble in paradise.....this is not surprising, however....and I think that it's a good idea to resign, if one is convinced that the fix is in.

Of course, there is more to this dust up than has been reported. There has to be a financial angle here.....something doesn't smell right.

Politics is politics. If you aren't "with the program", you're out of the program and don't belong in your job. You normally have the option to resign or be fired and resignation is always better for your reputation.

The old saying finally came about. Gotto is got to go.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/10/13 at 6:59

Paradise is hardly the word, Loner. This hell that the crazed Teabaggers has created will swallow a good thing soon.

If only yogi could understand what all of his cliches meant, he still would no nothing.

By: Loner on 5/10/13 at 7:10

Board of Elections, or Board of Erections? These guys sound like a bunch of pricks.

Good morning ladies. Excuse me if I am a little cranky--worked late so that you can get your free tampons with your AFDC cards.

My apologies.

By: yogiman on 5/10/13 at 7:41

I know I don't know everything, dumba$$, but I do know I know more than you (k)no(w).

By: BenDover on 5/10/13 at 7:48

About 7:00p at the J.C. Penny's last night:

"Do we have any volunteers to stay late tonight and do a price mark-down on all the plus size panties?"

By: Captain Nemo on 5/10/13 at 7:49

If you did yogi, you would know that you are an idiot. But since you have no brains then you would see yourself as....ass.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/10/13 at 7:50

LOL Ben.

It is the closet he can get to a woman.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/10/13 at 7:54

Ben, I see him more as cleaning out the grease pit at some beer joint. Or maybe washing dishes and busing tables.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 5/10/13 at 8:11

I have no idea what an AFDC card is but jugs seems to know all about it.


By: BenDover on 5/10/13 at 8:12

Nah... I get the sense Jugs is above such honest work, Nemo. Leave that to the 'apes' of a lower station. Jugs needs to dress nice and do light labor to take the edge off the discordant fact that his life accomplishments have not lived up his self image of greatness.

Probably tried car sales, and cell-phones too; but for some reason the buyers didn't recognize what a great salesman he is; so it's on to big-box retail sales clerk... emphasis on clerk.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 5/10/13 at 8:15

Ben, I figured convenience store clerk.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/10/13 at 8:26

Hence why I think he buses tables. That takes very little skill of mind to execute.

By: dargent7 on 5/10/13 at 9:43

Have NO idea what the Question? is about...but,
The new stadium for the 49ers in San Jose' is now called, "Levi's".
Seems the pants Co. have been a staple in San Fran. since 1881 or so.
Cost them $225 million over 20 years for the name.
HP Pavillion pays $16 million a year and CXL'd their name contract.
Budget cut-backs.
Google, Yahoo, Apple, Samsung are lobbing hard for the Super Bowl L ( 50) in 2016 to be played at the new Levi Stadium.
It's down to between us and Miami. The paperwork (ie., cash payoffs) are on the NFL owner's desks now. Decision May 26th. Google sent them the bid on a custom iPad and iPhone app.
Google has more money than God and the two CEO start-ups want it BAD.
Promising the owners, well, you can only imagine.

By: Jughead on 5/10/13 at 9:46

I am flattered that you discuss me to such great lengths. Of course, people are naturally curious about someone they fear.

By: Jughead on 5/10/13 at 9:47

It is no surprise that the intellectual black holes that populate this cesspool take every opportunity to disparage working folks.

It is what jealous, lazy, and entitled pukes do with their lives.

By: dargent7 on 5/10/13 at 9:49

Ben; FYI...I was a Toyota salesman- Beaman on Broadway- (lowest production in the class...got fired) and sold cell phones in Detroit (1982) when only 2 cities had cell coverage ....the handheld Motorola was $5,000 and the OKI briefcase was $3,000 and weighed 45#.
And Nemo, I bussed tables during H.S.
Juggs probably bailed hay and fed the hogs...his mother and then his wife.

By: Jughead on 5/10/13 at 9:57

You libtards are absolute losers.

Turn off your computer, go outside, live a life outside of your imaginary online world. You are not smart, clever, or relevant. You are just pathetic idiots whose incoherent diatribes amount to a waste of electrons.

Did I mention that I hate liberals?

By: BenDover on 5/10/13 at 10:04

Had an opportunity yet to disparage any 'apes' yet today Juggy?

We understand it's just a coping mechanism and your contempt for the coloreds is just the product of your own failure to achieve... and is likely just a negative trait learned from from your father.

I have hope that you can change though, Jugs... and accept the meager state in life that the dice of genetic uniformity have dealt to you. Peace is in accepting your limitations and finding contentment with what you are... even when those darkies are out-shining you.

By: Jughead on 5/10/13 at 10:08

BentOver: Can you PLEEZE speak in plain English? Your attempts to sound educated make you sound like Fred Flintstone on crack. I stop reading after the first few words because your sentences are so poorly constructed.

Idiot. The Apes don't even like you. They just want to doink your daughter and steal your beer.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/10/13 at 10:12

Why would anyone fear you Jugs. You once said you wanted someone to break in your house, but when I asked for the address, you yogi out and hid in your personal closet.

Care to make the offer again and see just how much we fear you.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/10/13 at 10:14

In other words Ben, you are talking over his head.

By: BenDover on 5/10/13 at 10:22

More likely I hit the nail on the head, Nemo, considering the deflection.

By: BenDover on 5/10/13 at 10:25

But personally I think, "...accept the meager state in life that the dice of genetic uniformity have dealt to you", is an absolute rhetoric masterpiece -- even including the mixed metaphors.

By: dargent7 on 5/10/13 at 10:28

My God has this post-it board turned to shit!
Let's talk about bowel movements for a change of pace.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/10/13 at 10:29

Over inflation of the ego makes for funny boom boom. Ben that boy is just a popping for verbal pain. I wonder if he flogs himself when he home, or does he have to pay for it.

By: Captain Nemo on 5/10/13 at 10:30

We are d7 when we talk about little boy Jugs.

By: BenDover on 5/10/13 at 10:34

Let's talk about Benghazi... so Hillary wasn't sworn in when she lied in her testimony... does that mean she doesn't have to go to jail? Scooter wasn't sworn in on the contradicting statements change was he?

By: bfra on 5/10/13 at 11:05

Ben - Got PROOF Hillary lied? You & yogi have all kind of smears, but no proof.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 5/10/13 at 11:07

Ben, what about Reagan and the Beirut bombing?

In the attack on the American Marines barracks, the death toll was 241 American servicemen: 220 marines, 18 sailors and three soldiers, along with sixty Americans injured, representing the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States Marine Corps since the Battle of Iwo Jima of World War II, the deadliest single-day death toll for the United States military since the first day of the Tet Offensive during the Vietnam War, and the deadliest single attack on Americans overseas since World War II


A former defense secretary for Ronald Reagan says he implored the president to put Marines serving in Beirut in a safer position before terrorists attacked them in 1983, killing 241 servicemen.

By: dargent7 on 5/10/13 at 11:14

Hillary did NOT lie. No more than the TravelGate or Vince Foster's suicide/ murder she was involved/ cupable with.
These "higher-ups" aren't included in everything that goes on in Washington.
Their plates are full....and have staffs of dozens and dozens.
The only whopper in recent memory is the Bush, Cheney, & Co. bullshit about Iraq.
Before that it was Watergate with Nixon taking the hit and before that the whole Vietnam war/Tet Offensive under Johnson.
Clinton got off lucky because it was just sex. Just two consenting adults screwing... NO ONE DIED.

By: dargent7 on 5/10/13 at 11:20

BN2: Excellent reporting @ 12:07pm.
These Repub's nim-rods get hell-bent on prison terms for Beghanzi because a whopping 4 people got killed. Never mind Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan.
It's as if they can't add, subtract or make moral decisions.
"Clinton lied about having sex before a Grand Jury..." So, what? 99.5% of all married men would.
Go attack, invade, occupy a soveriegn country like Iraq, killing 4,900...?
To a Repug..."same thing".

By: BenDover on 5/10/13 at 11:36

Oh... dig up Reagan if you want guys. All I want to know is the same thing she asked of Nixon, "what did she know, and when did she know it?".

By: dargent7 on 5/10/13 at 11:55

Who's digging up Reagan?
We're just juxtaposing your idiotic, "but...4 people died..." to Iraq.

By: Jughead on 5/10/13 at 12:13

Can you please return to discussing the most important thing in your pathetic lives---ME?



By: Jughead on 5/10/13 at 12:14


By: Jughead on 5/10/13 at 12:16

BentOverWithAlGore'sPudUpMyButt: "But personally I think, "...accept the meager state in life that the dice of genetic uniformity have dealt to you", is an absolute rhetoric masterpiece -- even including the mixed metaphors."

Really? Tell me you are kidding...please. Masterpiece?

It's a jumble and incomprehensible pile of vomit. Do you actually read? Ever?

God, you are one stupid animal.

By: Jughead on 5/10/13 at 12:24

Nimrod: I know you want to remove your adult diaper and put on your big boy pants. But remember, just because you call yourself a fireman doesn't mean you are one. Think about that each time you wnat to go all cyberlike Chuck Norris on me.

You are a mouse, nothing more.

By: Blanketnazi2 on 5/10/13 at 12:27

dargent, I get tired of the rants from the right stating that bad things happen only when a democrat is in office and when worse things have happened under certain republican administrations than under Obama's. Fine, dislike him all you want but face the facts!

By: BenDover on 5/10/13 at 12:28


By: Jughead on 5/10/13 at 12:31

Once again, schoolgirls, I must depart to earn some scratch to pay my Comcast bill.

I will think of each and every one of you while I bus tables/wash dishes/sell cars,cellphones,women's knickers/flip burgers/store clerk . I only occasionally will speak with my co-workers who actually work--but, my thoughts will be more focused on the absolute dolts who post on this forum in between visits to DHS for food stamps and TennCare.

Remember: each and every one of you is a pathetic,lazy, useless human being. I would call you liberals, but that would be redundant.

Love puddles.

By: yogiman on 5/10/13 at 12:35

Yeah, bfra,

Like Barry, Hillary opened her mouth on the Benghazi situation.

That could be the opening of the back door for Barry, BenDover. But I believe he'll have to be brought to trial because with his "holier than thou" attitude, I can't see him resigning.

By: yogiman on 5/10/13 at 12:38


Your comment about me not offering proof on my argument Barry Soetoro makes me wonder: What kind of proof do you want if you aren't willing to accept Barry's autobiography?

By: yogiman on 5/10/13 at 12:42

Well, B2,

At least the Republicans were in the office legally.

By: BenDover on 5/10/13 at 12:46

Definitely retail leaving this time of day. Part time at Penny's most likely. Mommy will give him a ride and then do his linens while he's gone. She sure won't risk opening that basement door to his bedroom while he's at home ever again.

By: yogiman on 5/10/13 at 12:59


RE: Your comment; "face the facts". The facts are Barry Soetoro aka Barack Hussein Obama is in that office illegally by usurpation.

1. If he was born in Hawaii as he claimed (but which hasn't been proved) and his father was a British subject from Kenya, he could only gain dual-citizenship.He would have been a native born citizen, not natural born status.

Presuming his father was Frank Marshall Davis as has been noted, he would have been a natural born citizen. But when he was adopted by his stepfather in Indonesia, he lost that natural born status; and once you lose it, you can't get it back.

2. If he was born in Kenya like he claimed through an advertisement for 16 years, he was a British subject at birth. So you should wonder; has he ever been an American citizen? If so, when was he? Is he now?

3. When he was sent to Hawaii to be raised by his grandparents, did he change his name back to Barack Hussein Obama, or is he still Barry Soetoro? If he ever was an American citizen, did he repatriate his citizenship? If so, on either point, when did he do it?
