      That’s what was sent to me this morning

      • Vern Nelson Vern Nelson January 18, 2017

        Sounds like Irvine marchers are gonna be sitting and twiddling their thumbs for a while!

        • Henry Lipton Henry Lipton January 18, 2017

          you drunk POS you know nothing

          • Dan Chmielewski Dan Chmielewski Post author | January 18, 2017

            IP address suggests you are not Paul Lucas. Find a different name

  2. Dan Chmielewski Dan Chmielewski January 18, 2017

    So what? They’ll be there.

    Trump’s victory is having an interesting effect. Even some GOP representatives are feeling the push back resulting from the possibility of repealing the ACA.

    This is vaguely reminiscent of what happened after Pete Wilson won in 1994. The GOP has been in decline ever since.

    • Vern Vern January 18, 2017

      From your lips to God’s ears, Elroy.

      • Dan Chmielewski Dan Chmielewski Post author | January 18, 2017

        This from the guy who props up Republicans like Tait, Barnes, Zenger, Vanderbilt? Practice what you preach Mr. “Democrat”

        • Vern Vern January 19, 2017

          If the GOP consisted, even mostly, of people like those four, our country would be in good shape. And I’d still be a Democrat. (Or maybe a green.)

          I’m not even sure if Zenger is still a Republican.

          • CrazyGreg CrazyGreg January 19, 2017

            Are you sure you’re not drunk?

          • Dan Chmielewski Dan Chmielewski Post author | January 19, 2017

            Keep telling me what a great Democrat you are while you shill for the right. Blowhard

            • Vern Nelson Vern Nelson January 19, 2017

              “Keep telling YOU?” I’m mostly not talking to YOU when I come over here. I’m showing the rest of the county what a real Democrat, what a real liberal, talks and thinks like.

              • Dan Chmielewski Dan Chmielewski Post author | January 19, 2017

                Almost all real Democrats don’t know what the inside of a jail cell looks like — you and Paul Lucas being an exception to the rule. Jerk

                • Vern Vern January 19, 2017

                  “Jerk,” he adds, through tears.

  4. David Vasquez David Vasquez January 18, 2017

    I just heard about Greg’s comments regarding Melahat Rafiei and her kids, marital status and PERSONAL LIFE.

    For a guy that champions “progressive” ideals, he is a loose
    FU&^ing cannon. This guy needs to be slapped down, if Jeff doesn’t speak out he is EVERYBIT divisive as his “CRAZY” brother in law.

    I Guess we’ll see.

    • Dan Chmielewski Dan Chmielewski Post author | January 18, 2017

      Melahat has one kid. She’s a fantastic mother

      • Greg Diamond Greg Diamond January 19, 2017

        Take it down, Dan. I haven’t made any recent comments about Melahat at all recently, nor do I think I have ever made any derogatory comments about her child or her marital status, nor would I.

        You had the chance to ask this pseudonymous serial liar for some sort of link as proof — and you missed it.

        That you let your blog be used to spread lies for your political gain is — oh, what’s the right word? — “deplorable.”

        • Dan Chmielewski Dan Chmielewski Post author | January 19, 2017

          Greg — You’ve written a number of nasty things about Melahat over the years as well as clients she represents. I don’t find it a stretch at all for you to extend your professional dislike of her to her personal life. The exception to your smear is Melahat’s exceptional work on Josh Newman’s campaign because without her, he would have lost.

          That I “let your blog be used to spread lies for your political gain…” hmm, I suggest you read the comments of your own blog sir. Per Paul Lucas, I’m somehow a Curt Pringle supporter. Per Dave Zenger, I assault wheelchair bound people at bootcamp. Richardo suggests I’m friends with the devil himself. I have never asked for takedown notices of either comments because they are absurd. They actually make me laugh. You delight in insulting anyone you can and demonstrate a complete inability to take what you dish out in return. Try not to be a hypocrite — and do grow a thicker skin.

          I am posting your comment and frequent take down notices to show what a Trump-like whiner you are. Sad!

        • David Vasquez David Vasquez January 19, 2017

          P!ss Off Nut Job.

          For your information I did not reference where or when you said this, I did NOT say your comments were “derogatory”, you are a PRESUMPTUOUS FOOL.

          No make that a PARANOID FOOL. So now I am anonymous again, after you claimed I was a GOP operative. Make up your mind Cocco Puff.

          I would say “deplorable” is calling Jose Solorio’s Mother a “BITCH”, accusing Congressman Correa of “CAUSING PEOPLES DEATHS”, calling the party chairman a “Liar and a cheat” or most recently disparaging the close friends and allies of the newly elected chair.

          This guy is a desperate soul

    Does anyone remember the Monsanto ride at Disneyland? You are getting smaller, smaller….This is the definition of sandbox politics. All a bunch of sad clowns.

    • Vern Nelson Vern Nelson January 21, 2017

      If OUR blog was anything like this pit, I would say, “Touché, sir.”
