Thanks to the crackerjack undercover work of Ricky Gill and his campaign team we know that Rep. Jerry McNerney isn't currently in his Brookside home full time.

OK, so it then leads one to ask, "Where in the world is Ricky when he's not beating the bushes?"

Promotional materials provide that when Ricky is here, he lives with his family in the Lodi area. The really neat thing about that is thanks to President Obama's Affordable Care Act, Ricky is covered by mom and dad's health insurance policy.

Ricky also works on the family farm. Personally, I have no problem with that. Any young man who works hard and does his chores deserves to be paid his allowance.

Look, there's a real lack of experience here, evidenced primarily by the fact he hasn't had any real employment outside of his family.

His summed activities are that of privilege and academics, toss in a board membership or two, and that's what is in this shelter.

His narrow political views are an example of this, as he's signed on to Grover Norquist's no-tax pledge. This effectively clears the table of any bi-partisan negotiation to help solve our economic problems.

I'm not going to say he lacks for talent and can't put two words together, but currently those words are tied to a groomed ideology of fairy dust trickle down squat that lacks a social conscience.

We need Jerry McNerney's continued capable representation, not a Paul Ryan advocate.

    Ricky has offered no vision of his role in Congress if he were to be elected. His only real thought and words are "Vote for me because I am local, and the other guy is not."

    Here is some food for thought:
    1) On his Congressional Candidate profile, he claims to be a small business owner. He also states that on his interview on Fox News. Why does he sidestep this in a recent San Francisco Chronicle? The truth is he has never held a full time job!

    2) With two candidates offering boldly dramatic visions for the country, it is strange that Ricky Gill is so silent on the Paul Ryan budget. Wasn't it Ryan and Eric Cantor that spearheaded the Young Gun program that Ricky brags so much about? Why does he have a profile of himself and Eric Cantor on his Twitter account? The truth is that the budget has ideas that would hurt many Central Valley families. Gill is running away from Paul Ryan faster than Usain Bolt in the 100 meters.

    3) As Mr Sanders states, Ricky refuses to talk about his role in the family business. Was he involved in finance, supply chain, legal, compliance, etc? Agribusinesses in the Central Valley are complex business enterprises, and Ricky has yet to explain his role in the family business.

    4) Ricky calls McNerney a carpetbagger, but hasn't he represented Stockton, Lodi since the district was redrawn? He has always lived in the District he represents. Where was Ricky during all those summers during Princeton and Boalt? He was not on the family farm but working for the Oakland A's and in Washington D.C. among other activities. He only showed interest in the Central Valley when he wanted his first full time job-McNerney's! It takes a real supercilious individual to view being a Congressman as an entry level job.

    5) As referenced to #4, what does Ricky think of Tom McClintock. McClintock represents a district in Sacramento, but he lives in Southern California. Does Ricky condone this?

    In the end, it is quite funny. The wonder kid who has never held a full time job is going to lecture us on how to turn the economy around! ROFLWMDHO!

    Blue Cross, Kaiser, Health Net, Aetna, Blue Shield, and every health insurance company in California has applied to the state of Califonia for more than 20% increase do to claim utilization the past two years. Each company has proved to the state that their claim costs have increased a minimum 20% and premium increases have been approved.

    Maybe you should contact the FBI and report there is collusion between all the health insurance companies, the state legislators and the state of California...

    Who knows, I hear there is big money in whistle blowing... on the other hand, it might prove to be more valuablefor you to contact the fire department considering all that smoke you are blowing.

    Oh Darrell,
    Now I know why health care costs have been maintained at 4% for 2 years rather continueing to rise dramaticly as they were (this would include mental health care costs as well) I because you continue to to not get the mental help you need. But really its there for you now so do everyone a favor and ... You know I think you would really enjoy laying on the couch and talking about yourself. Oh your welcome think nothing of it.

    Mr Heuer stated...The health care debacle was necessary to meet a service need as well as control healthcare costs which have been curbed two years in a row now.

    Mr Heuer, you are so far off that you statement is absurd. Since Obama took office, The Mental Health Parity Act changed the rules and cost factor. Serious mental heath care treatments are now paid for as any other illness with no limit. prior to the change, there was a 90 day cap... Each inpatient treatment cost about $50,000 per month. This alone makes your claim absurd.

    Cost went down? Maybe on Mars.

    Response to Jerome’s post at 8:34 pm on Thu, Sep 13, 2012
    Part 1
    The health care debacle was necessary to meet a service need as well as control healthcare costs which have been curbed two years in a row now. Most of the health care plan was a republican plan with much of its formulation provided by the Heritage Foundation and of course Romney. Since Obamas inauguration there has been a republican vow to offer no cooperation to dems as M McConnell articulated "Our aim is to see that Obama doesn't get a second term". All efforts for bipartisanship were quashed at the start even though Obama reached out his hand many times. Couple this with Grover Norquist assuming power over the republican party with his no tax pledges quashed negotiation making the repubs a "my way or the highway" bunch.
    Now add to this the tea party ignorant who want to bring down and simplify the government so their limited intellectual capacity can understand it. They twist the constitution to serves their needs and not the original intent. It is the people’s document for the people to govern themselves and the means for governing are its content. The US before WWII was safe and isolated between two oceans and could remain simple. After WWII we went global and decided to be a world power with world responsibilities that were never considered in the original constitution. We now have the simpletons who see the constitution as a domestic document, which it is, but they want to attack our government which is now a world power. They can't even comprehend what we are. A mercantile giant, a global banking conglomerate, a monster military organization, an intellectual property generating colossus, food and energy producing behemoth, scientific well spring and on and on. Limiting government is like judicial activism. If you like the decision well that’s how it should work. If the decision is not what you want then obviously its judicial activism. Limited government is the same. If you don't like the regulation then government is overstepping its bounds. If you like the regulation you don’t care how it was created. If the government requires an invasive procedure like transvaginal ultra sound and you think its ok then its ok that government gets into our life where they don't belong. Regulations are created by people. For every regulation you dislike someone wanted it. Most newly created business like the internet or gas fracking start out with little regulation. Its only overtime after problems develop or law suit decisions begin to codify restrictions.

    Part 2
    If the nation is torn apart it is repubs who are responsible now and it began with the obstructionist in chief Newt Gingrich who decided that repubs should not mingle with dems or negotiate. Hence the first shut down of government. Now today the obstructionist policy of the repubs has resulted in no cooperation with dems no matter how urgent the matter unless of course it has political ramifications and that is where the bipartisan successes have been made. Student loans, etc. Read the news if you want more. These things are in the news and even on Fox so I don't know why you ask the question what has been done bipartisan. Most of this has been written in posts here before. I learn these things so they are there if you don't filter your brain to seek only the bad news or conservative propaganda. If you think this is worse than 1968 you must not have been there. It’s bad now but different and not as violent but we don't have a Viet Nam war or draft now. Now we agree Nixon should not have been president.
    I really get miffed over whining over campaign promises both left and right. Never are all promises kept and as you should know, politics like battle plans change with the first shot (crisis). Nobody knew the catastrophic level of the economic crisis and the degree of attention it would command while we were at war on two fronts. As Clinton said nobody could have done better than Obama. When Obama and McCain met with leaders over Leman Bros McCain froze and Obama began directing inquires even with Bush there. I knew McCain didn't have the flexibility or smarts to handle the situation and that’s why I tout Obamas character. This recent Middle East crisis doubles down on Romney’s inability to think on his feet. Campaign gaffs are one thing but compromising our foreign policies for political gains shows a real lack of judgement. It’s like Jane Fonda going to the Viet Cong during the war. You need a cool head not a brash, insensitive naive neophyte.
    The unemployment rate is stable not rising because a cool head was able to wrestle a monthly job loss of over 700,000 in 2009 to keep us from going into a deep depression. Nobody could foresee this during the campaign when promises were based on precrash conditions. Nobody knew the extent of the crash when we lost an entire industry; the housing industry. This was a nationwide loss of carpenters, plumbers, electricians, bricklayers, carpet layers, tile workers, landscapers, cement workers, roofers, sheet rockers, window installers, real estate people, title companies, banking people, furnishings and more. When the dust leveled it was devastation. So when you say create jobs and reduce the unemployment rate further what are you referring to. Past recessions had downturns and mostly were a wait out period before recovery. You can't create jobs out of nothing. The housing industry was down and nothing was going to revive it no matter who was in office. Not tax breaks, not stimulus, not the Fed, nothing. Capital collapsed and was swimming in debt, foreclosures and associated legal wrangling. The only thing you could do was create another industry as large as housing but where, how. The only thing remaining was relief to those hit hard either through unemployment insurance, jobs programs, or other stimulus. Not that it would solve the economy but it would help keep some business afloat by circulating money and in general just help people which I know is taboo with the tea baggers. Too bad they lack morals. Now you can say we can't blame G Bush (repeatedly) which is pure ignorance. Do you deny G Bush started two wars and ran up a deficit by failing to pay for it? Do you deny G Bush gave huge tax breaks at the same time which created even larger deficits? Now since Regan the repubs have been anti regulation and Bush was no different. So to Bush's credit he wasn't alone in creating the economic woes but it is the ideology of conservatives in deregulation that fuels a problem.
    I always want to ask what regulation do you want to be rid of? I like clean water and air, healthy food, so what regs do you want to be rid of? I also am thankful for regulations when another country with less regulation has a quake and large swaths of the community are lost along with many lives. So when repubs talk against the EPA or FDA I get a little nervous.

    Part 3
    Bush exacerbated the problem by tax cuts and wars all unpaid for. As for Obama he inherited the Bush year’s debt and took office at the beginning of the crash and had to deal with stimulus and bailouts that yes increased the debt but it was stop gaps for reducing the damage and stabilizing the economy. He also decided we weren't going to keep the cost of wars a secret (transparency) and put them back in the budget which is now part of the deficit. It was not frivolous tax cuts or starting an ill-advised invasion of a country (Iraq) while executing a war in Afghanistan which raised debt during his watch. It is the economy Obama has been focused on for nearly 4 years. It’s a shame repubs are blocking a jobs bill (for political purposes) that would create a substantial number of needed jobs. The economy is improving and consistently since 2009. I don't know what your situation is but yes most of us are better off than we were Jan 2009. Are you kidding? The economy crashed, stock market fell, and unemployment rose to double digits. Today the stock market is rising to new highs so you should see a stronger portfolio. Many people who are no longer in the unemployment rate have found success in starting their own business. There are millions still hurting and California was especially hit very hard since we have desirable real estate and our economic size. We have always pilled out of a recession near last. There is more to do and that’s why we need the same cool head who can take on the variety of challenges we still face both here and the world. What’s Romney going to do? No one wants to say especially him. He has already proven he can't deal with the high intensity complex crisis that a POTUS must face.
    You said “We're a nation on the cusp of destruction – Now what would Regan say to a statement like that. Oh the party of gloom and doom.

    I don't know why Mr. Docktor is even mentioning this because he actually thinks that Obama is a Muslim and has lied about being a Christian, not to mention lying about the whole citizenship question. We are still waiting on the concrete evidence that his "hero" Joe Arpaio has that he is withholding from everyone for some unknown reason.

    Maybe he can share that evidence with the Kansas officials who need to know whether Obama can be put on the Kansas ballot or not.

    -There are many documented accounts of Obama speaking of his religious convictions
    in much the same manner. And many documented lies told by him. My point is: Rarely has Ms. Bobin protested Obama in this case.

    For the record. I do not ever consider ANY politician void of lies.

    Back to McNerney... can anyone say they actually believe that 97% of all Bills Nancy Pelosi votes for are in the interst of san Joaquin County? Since McNerney votes as Nanacy votes, how can any sane person think McNerney represents our interests.

    Or Is San Francisco now considered a farming community?

    Mr Gill on the other hand works fo ra farming business( his families) in san Joaquin and would vote for legislation valuable to people who work and live in this area.

    The fear is obviously on the left. Clearly, this should be a president sliding easily into a second term based upon all the things he "did" during his first three-plus years. Yet, precisely what is it that Obama can tout as bi-partisan successes; just how did he bring together the nation as he promised so valiantly to do?

    No, Barack Hussein Obama hedged all his bets on failed policies and a healthcare reform debacle that did nothing more than split this nation wide open. It didn't have to happen. All he needed to have done was to let the process run its course according to the Constitution, the rules of Congress, common decency (integrity and honor) and as he promised he would be "ahem," transparent. But as Nancy Pelosi promised, it had to have been passed before we found it what was in it. What a mess!

    Yet here we are less than two months away from Election Day 2012 and by no means is the election decided. Indeed, even today the world is in tatters, the nation is torn apart worse than I can ever recall; even worse than in 1968 when Chicago was literally on fire as Nixon should never have been the Republican's candidate let alone the President of the United States.

    Where exactly is the unemployment rate today; how close to the promised 5% or below are we? And I suppose Obama is thankful it's just above 8%. Oh, but I keep forgetting - it's George W. Bush's fault! He's been to blame all along. I'm still waiting for Barack H. Obama to accept responsibility for anything. Whatever happened to, “It’s the economy, stupid” that led Clinton to victory in 1992? Are we really better off today than we were prior to January 2009? Not a chance!

    But of all the things most disgraceful done by the party of FDR, Truman, Johnson, Carter, Clinton and now Obama (only two of which really did anything worthwhile) was whether or not to oust God from the platform. It took three voice votes to determine that He had been saved, but anyone with only one ear could hear that even that vote had been rigged. How proud they all must have been wearing their bright, shiny “S-luts* Vote” and “Once You Vote Black, You’ll Never Go Back” buttons! (*The forum censor would not permit the posting of my comments because of this word sans asterisk – now how ironic is that?!?) So many tingles up legs during that four-day span in Charlotte! I wonder how proud Mrs. Obama is now (not really; I know she’s all atwitter.)

    And I’ve only hit on a very few examples of the Great Obama Presidency.

    We're a nation on the cusp of destruction - and it really isn’t Bush's fault.

    Actually, Mr. Kinderman carefully thinks through what he wants to say and calmly articulates his perspective...
    He views the president in a negative light. He believes, as I do that the policies and legislation Obama supports are bad for our country. It is reasonable to express opposition when you have these perceptions.

    Listening to Mr. Chang and Heuer reminds me of that saying...ignorance is bliss.

    Jerome, talk about predictable, your partisan bias against Obama (for whatever reason) (moral compass?) leads you away from the issue at hand Gill/McNerney to another rant opportunity against Obama. And for your info the fence sitters are jumping off on the side of Obama. Why? Because he is better for America than Romney who has proven he is and never will be ready for prime time. He will only do the bidding of the cursed tea party bent on destroying this country. Your partisan blocked mind will never see it. Too bad you will only experience a good president years from now in history books. Your grandkids will ask "Did you know him" and you in all honesty have to say no. Or you could be a j.e.r.k an say mean things which will alienate them from you.

    On the other hand, when it comes to "character," while Obama might "be" a character, he possesses no real characteristics that would identify him as a man of honor, integrity or worth. His behavior during his first (and last, hopefully) term is indicative of a man who dropped his moral compass somewhere along the path to the presidency (if he ever had one to begin with). It was clear from Inauguration Day 2009 that we were in for a very rough ride indeed (as I pointed out from nearly that first day); he held to that promise.

    Four more years of this will likely prove disastrous for all of us.

    I am very thankful that Romney is not considered in the "same league" as Barack Hussein Obama. I would be quite disturbed if anyone from either side would think there are any similarities. That statement alone should make it easy for anyone still on the fence about Romney to vote for him.

    Joanne, personally knowing both Gill and Pombo I can promise you there are no comparisons. I was one of those Republicans who were tired of Pombo's ego and complete disregard of his constituents. I voted for McNerney to replace him and so did a lot of other Republicans. I wish you'd take a minute to meet Ricky, I think you would have an entirely different take on him.

    Kinderman and Baumbach go together like a horse and carriage. I won't say which is which. After reading this letter I could have written their posts for them they are that predictable. What they seem to not understand is "character". Obama has it Romney doesn't as he has shown over an over especially now with the embassy crisis. I don't expect Darrel to understnd character since he has as much as Romney.but Jerome I would hope he would recognize the support and efforts McNerney has dedicated to our armed forces. Idon't expect him to recognize the character of the president since he can't see through his partisan lenses (or is there another reason you find him in disfavor). If you are honest Romney is not in the same league as Obama. Gill is not in the same league as McNerney. Its all about the character difference not the resume difference. Joanne said it so well.

    Gill has all the hallmarks of a Richard Pombo. "Farming" background, large circle of wealthy friends and family, large tracts of land and other real estate holdings. Need we be fooled again by this profile?

    To compare Barack Hussein Obama (who one commentor HILARIOUSLY described as possessing "very few real-life experiences"), with Ricky Gill is just ludicrous.

    Let's see, Ricky has NO work experience, has been an in academia for his short adult life, has a law degree, but is not a lawyer, and aspires to be a career politician.

    BHO has had life experiences living in and visiting foreign countries as a child, IS a lawyer and has taught Constitutional law, has had life experiences on the street helping those who, for the most part, cannot help themselves, and had two years in the Senate of the USA, just to name a few things off the top of my head.

    I know that commentor MUST have some sort of twisted definition of "life experiences" to make the statement he made. Perhaps he means his life experience as "someone with a direct connection to the epicenter of the Civil Rights Movement in Philadelphia."

    Again with the "transform the United States of America."

    And to date, not one concrete example of this fantasy.

    My preference in a letter such as this would be to advocate for your candidate by telling us why he should be re-elected. What he has accomplished during his tenure in office. Instead we are told why his opponent should not be elected. Very unfortunate.

    What I find extremely hilarious, but still just a tad disturbing are those who supported Barack Hussein Obama in 2008 - a man who possessed very few real-life experiences - now express the same criticism of those on the other side of the aisle. What's the word for this - I think it starts with "hypocrit" and ends with "e." The sophomoric examples provided by Mr. Sanders to deny Ricky Gill could easily have been applied to Obama as he ran for President of the United States.

    On the other hand, I agree! Look where the entire nation is today as a result of our refusal to take Mr. Obama seriously as he promised to transform the United States of America – and now he’s begging for four more years! While there's little chance that Ricky Gill will unseat our present "esteemed" representative in Congress this time around, perhaps this experience has taught him some very important lessons that he might apply the next time around. Still, this really isn't a good political season to be an incumbent - the voters might finally decide it's time for Jerry and Barack to go home. One can only hope.

    If McNerney represented our interests rather than Pelosi's, I would agree. But when McNerney votes how Pelosi tells him to, he no longer is representing San Jaoquin county, but the bay area where all Mcnerney's friends and family live.

    If McNerney votes 97% of the time as Pelosi directs, he becomes a rubber stamp for others, not a thinking man who represents a farming community like in San Joaquin.

    Mr Gill on the other hand has vested interests in San Joaquin county and will vote for legislation that a farming community needs. McNerney in contrast, if he loses this election, will live in the bay area with his family and friends...
