Talk Back: California Republicans; jobless rate; Mervyns; 'Twilight'
Republicans are wondering how to remain relevant in California.
The best solution to the GOP problems is to kick the Tea Party to the curb and bring back the Republican party. I am registered independent and I have voted for Republicans in the past. Since 2008 they have circled the drain with the rhetoric and utter disdain for anyone that doesn't agree with them. The Tea Party NEEDS to be excised like a boil from the backside of the Republican party.

The tea party has caused the republicans to lose five senate seats in a two year time span. The republicans would be controlling the senate by now if it were not for them. When I saw the Christine ODonell ads I am not a witch in Delaware I was thinking how in the world could the tea party elect such a person.

The issue is a corrupt press and how does the GOP deal with that reality. Every Republican must know that the Candy Crowleys' of journalism will be biased. They will spread Liberal talking points; they propagate talking points which promote the notion that there exists a 'War On Woman,' Republicans are the enemy, Republicans are bigots (witnessed herein), Republicans don't care for the less fortunate and on and on it goes.

The idea that the corrupt media is responsible for the failure of the Republicans to win the WH doesn't give Americans much credit for being able to think for themselves. I think that's a bigger part of the problem with both platforms. We're not as stupid as they hope we are.

The jobless rate for Yuba and Sutter counties declined in October.
But are these numbers reflecting the people who have had their unemployment run out or the people who have simply stopped looking for jobs?

The former Mervyns department store building will be the new home for Habitat for Humanity's administrative offices.
Another wasted building. I understand it's a great program and a great cause. But that building could have produced a lot more jobs with another type of business. Just look at the old Montgomery Wards building.

Fans lined up for screenings of "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2" on Thursday at Cinemark Yuba City.
When I was a kid, vampires and werewolves were scarey... and didn't sparkle. Not a big fan of this "abusive relationships: how to" series. I'll be glad when the movies stop coming out. Go watch Harry Potter. At least that doesn't teach young girls to be dish rags for some jerk.

I tried watching the first "Twilight" movie, but fell asleep about 30 minutes in. Guess I just wasn't into having a sparkly vampire for a boyfriend.
