Cyber Command a nonpartisan issue

I am outraged ” as usual. How dare these carpetbaggers from Yuba County accuse our Board of Supervisors of being of two minds ideologically, a mix of conservatives and liberals?

I can understand how one might blame the liberals (or the conservatives) for continental drift, but I am at a loss to understand how this Cyber Command at Beale Air force Base is an issue for the liberal/conservative divide.

In Nevada County, we take our politics neat, undiluted. As evidence of the current board’s purity of thought, I give you the comment of Supervisor Beason at a recent board meeting: “I don’t want to get bogged down in the trivia of listening to these splinter groups who have got agendas.” Do you see evidence of a mind agonizing over opposing views? Yuba County is just jealous.

“Why is attendance so low at county Board of Supervisors meetings?” asked The Union in a recent poll. In response, 96.3 percent replied: “My input won’t matter.” It is comforting to know that they have no need of us.

I foresee a variation on the alphanumeric signs of old. The next generation will read: “No on 5-0.”
