For your enjoyment:
From Humboldt Craigslist but republished here in case it gets flagged on CL and taken down, like most entertaining "Rants and Raves" eventually do.
What we don't know for sure is if this person is talking about just pot-centric Humboldt County, or all of California. In any case, it doesn't matter much because it sounds like he/she is moving soon. Later on, anonymous ranter!
Now onto another rant on CL, this guy is a grower who has some interesting opinions and took the time to write his thoughts out for all of us. Thing is, we can't help noticing that while he says he is a college graduate, he fails to understand the difference between capitalism and venture capital, says that the housing economy here has not been affected by the national downturn (which is, of course, incorrect), and is incapable of using proper grammar ("their" instead of "they're", "were" instead of "we're", etc.). In the end the author takes the "If you don't like it then leave" attitude in order to deflect any further discussion on the topic.
*Sigh* Maybe the first ranter is right, maybe it is hopeless here and this place really is so chock full of greedy criminal pot growers and filled to the brim with mediocrity and a crevice of society that actually wants less law enforcement and fewer laws, that there is no room for community-minded professionals interested in restoring a sense of pride and togetherness to our secluded region. Maybe we're wasting our time here at Humboldt County News and it's all for naught, nobody listens, nobody cares, everyone disagrees, and coherent discussions are nonexistent. Our readers continuously state that they want fewer police, fewer laws, less community involvement, and for everyone who doesn't share their view to just go away.
