The Sharper Focus pukefests
Re: Sharper Focus by Raymond Freeman, “Pilgrim’s Way,” May 23
I am thankful that Mr. Freeman’s “Big Adventures” into journalism, the so-called “Sharper Focus,” only prints every other week. That way, on the off weeks, one can enjoy the rest of the VCReporter without opening it up to one of his alarmingly consistent and vile pukefests!
“His goal is to penetrate the obscurity surrounding economic, financial and political matters, so that the average reader will find this new column interesting and informative.”
This is the purpose of Mr. Freeman’s column as stated by the editor. The question that arises, then, is, “Does Mr. Editor ENJOY Freeman’s biased, ranting cesspools of hate against Republicans and all things conservative?” NONE of his articles has yet to touch base with the above editor’s description (unless one is as bigoted as Freeman)! As one who purports to be a journalist with his own column, Mr. Freeman should at least TRY to own up to the purpose of it, instead of making it a launch pad for his own kindergarten tantrums!
But then again, one would expect nothing less from a minion of Mr. Freeman’s “Lord and Savior,” Barack Obama. (Thanks for that, Jamie Foxx, another village idiot.) I’ve yet to see any “penetration of the obscurity” surrounding Obama Bin Lyin and HIS Irks! Oh, wait! There is none. Obama … he can do no wrong! At least, so it is in HIS mind and in the minds of Obama’s Borg (i.e., Mr. Freeman)! One will note that nary a critical question is EVER raised concerning those PARAGONS of virtue, honesty, morality and saintliness — the Democrats. Excuse me. Bleahhhh!!! Good thing I had that bag!
Mr. Freeman’s bits of bile belong in the Letters section along with those from the nitwits who live to express their hatred of Mr. Moomjean! Being a banker and lawyer does NOT qualify Mr. Freeman as a journalist, and certainly he has proved that he is NOT! Not to say that he is not a researcher of all things he hates! He EXCELS there! It’s just that there is nothing to be gained or to profit from his opinionated diatribes! There needs to be something of positive and redeeming value, something thought-provoking to help readers to ponder beneficial information. This would be with the purpose to form thoughtful opinions based upon unbiased facts, perhaps to draw contemplative conclusions! Is Mr. Freeman even capable of such?
Otherwise, one should just pick up a Star or Inquirer in the grocery line.
The McGrath beach dilemma
Thanks for the great article: A no-win situation in the McGrath State Beach flooding!
We started making our summer vacation plans in January because we knew how difficult it is to book weekend camping reservations along the coast. We booked a total of five weekend trips: three at McGrath State Beach, another at Lyme Kiln and another at D.L. Bliss (Lake Tahoe). All of our McGrath trips have been canceled due to flooding in the campground.
We chose McGrath because we like the nearby Ventura Harbor Village restaurants and shops and the wind at Surfers Knoll for kite flying. We were planning to spend hundreds of dollars supporting local businesses like Andria’s Seafood, Coastal Cone, Harbor Wind and Kite, Village Carousel and Arcade, etc. Now we read the flooding is expected to cost more than $650,000 in lost camping fees in addition to a mosquito outbreak! There has to be a better solution.
A valid point
Your cover extravaganza on Ventura County oil history and development is Pulitzer caliber (“Oil and Gas,” Feature, May 30), coming at a time when an economic boom for our county and our state is there for the taking if regulatory queens can do no better than Hannah-Beth Jackson’s denying fracking in favor of her old canard, job creation in the green energy sector and weaning us off fossil fuels.
Without oil, if Hannah-Bet has D.C. political ambitions, is she planning on getting to Washington on a glider?
Wrong again, Moomjean
Right off, I do need to say that I don’t know Mr. Moomjean from a Big Mac. The only thing I know about him is what he writes; as far as I am concerned, he is a “Russ Limbaugh” in training. It’s quite obvious that Mr. Moomjean has no love for Mr. Barack Obama, president of the United States of America.
As far as that goes, there are a plethora of people that read the VCReporter that have no love for Mr. Moomjean. I am sure he doesn’t stay awake at night worrying about that fact. Mr. Moomjean has enough love for himself to go pretty far.
In his latest attempt to be, I guess, humorous, in the VCReporter of May 30, he wrote an opinion piece entitled “It’s the 1970s all over again.” Right there, you can see Mr. Moomjean has nothing but a dark space in his cranium where his brain is supposed to be.
How anybody can compare today’s political scene with the party of NO, the Republicans fighting tooth and nail against anything President Obama brings up, even if they were for an idea in the beginning, when President Obama states he feels it is a good idea, the Republicans automatically reverse their stand and go 180 degrees the other way.
As far as the phony “Benghazi Mess” is concerned, anybody with a modicum of sense can see it was simply a handful of young miscreants that were bent on causing trouble. There was no prior warning, and no way to stop the action before it began. There was also no “cover-up” by the White House at all. Prior to the event, the Republicans had voted down a request for more security funds for the protection of the various ambassadors. If they had voted yes, there would have been many more guards on site. If anybody should be investigated, it should be the leaders of the Republican Party.
As far as the Republicans’ “IRS scandal” is concerned, I see nothing wrong in the IRS investigating the Tea Party groups that have applied for tax-free status. We all know that the Tea Party is nothing but a bunch of stooges for the Republican Party. As such, the law states that if a group is engaged, as the Tea Party is, in any political practices, it is not eligible for tax-free status.
Then Mr. Moomjean goes on to rant about the search warrant to seize e-mails and phone records of certain so-called “Fox reporters.” Fox Corp. in truth has no “reporters.” The people who work for Fox are told what to “investigate” and what to write by the Democrat-hating owner of Fox.
Plus, it sure seems very strange to me that all of the news media are constantly harping about the lack of transparency of the White House; but when the tables are turned and they are asked for information, they jump on the old axiom, “reporters’ privilege.”
So in closing, I would suggest to Mr. Moomjean that if he truly wants to stay in the newspaper game, he should take a job with the VCReporter stuffing the paper in the racks.
