Repeat the No on 2020 mantra

Houston, we’ve got a problem. Fixated “property rights” advocates in Nevada County are turning everything upside down, inside out, to fit their programmed thinking to No on 2020.

No on 2020 mantra:

Distort the facts.

Keep ’em ignorant.

Keep ’em guessing.

Keep ’em confused.

Some Nevada County residents have fallen for its message hook, line and sinker.

As for the 8,000 vote petitioners and don’t-get-to-vote whiners, there are 93,000 of us in Nevada County, and a lot of us don’t give a lick for your poppycock.

Then there is the glorious leader of No on 2020, John Bircher, 3rd District Board of Supervisor candidate Drew Bedwell. Some of the off-the-cuff wisdom from Drew’s pen has a U.N. conspiracy and black helicopters targeting Nevada County and that four of the five board members are communists. This is not truth, this is delusional. You have to ask yourself “is Nevada County really as bad as ‘property rights’ groups and candidates say it is?”
