Dave Stancliff’s most recent comment posted below starts out by saying:
Do you know what Google Alerts are Joe?
Everytime [sic] you say something about me I get one. Good, bad, or indifferent.
I get numerous Google alerts every day.
Do you know what “Google Alerts” are? “Google Alerts – Monitor the Web for interesting new content.”
You set them up right and Google will follow you around the Internet like a crotch-sniffing hound dog on the make. Continue reading Stancliff’s comment(s) and you’ll begin to see evidence of paranoia showing it ugly head. Remember, this guy writes for and is published in the local Times-Standard newspaper. If questioning the rational for some of his convoluted, opinionated conjecture, on occasion, is a problem for him, maybe he should take up another hobby. Or, does he already have one, stalking me?
His ad hominem attacks, threats and constant tirade of filthy, unproven accusations constantly made against this writer are designed for only one purpose: obfuscate and confuse the issue so people have a hard time seeing the truth of Dave Stancliff’s legitimacy as an individual in this community and credibility of his “As It Stands” newspaper column.
Following this commentary is Dave Stancliff’s latest contribution to the Joe Blow Report, apparently written in response to the Report’s, “Living With Dignity.” It’s worth highlighting when you compare it to what he’s had published in the Times-Standard newspaper for last several weeks. In fact, three and a half weeks ago he said the following: “I’ve learned not to get upset at negative feedback and not to pat myself on the back too hard when someone likes what I’ve written.” You’re welcome to draw your own conclusions, but I’d say he’s REAL upset, to the point of obsession, at this writer. That’s what happens when you make assumptions and take what other people say personally.
This country, including Eureka and Humboldt County are facing some serious problems that are sure to adversely affect us all. Let’s quantify the area a little closer to home by saying, all the area serviced by the Times-Standard newspaper. That’s who publishes Dave Stancliff’s “As It Stands” opinion in every Sunday paper. No one, including this knee-jerk reactionary knows what to do. All anyone suggests is to keep trying to put Humpty-Dumpty back together again – to no avail. They keep voting in (mostly) new faces, but the same old politician – same old failed ideas and solutions based, mostly on unsubstantiated worthless opinions, ideologies and beliefs. Why do they do that? Apparently, because they’ve bought into the lie that they need the Thought Police telling them what to do and how to believe. Then if the masters of lies, deception, propaganda, innuendo, and plain old unadulterated “bullshit” aren’t enough you have the non-thinking believers running interference.
For instance, the Earth is starting to burn up and all anyone can say is, “What’s the point of talking about “that” and getting all upset? There’s nothing we can do about “that” anyway. Don’t you know it’s all in God’s Hands? Then they go off and carry on like there’s no tomorrow without a care in the world.
One of the purposes of the Joe Blow Report is to stimulate thinking. We firmly believe that people that live in glass houses one should never throws stones. In other words, hypocrites should keep their mouths shut! Stancliff concluded historical review three and a half weeks ago by saying: “As It Stands, I’m grateful for this opportunity to communicate, and I hope you stop by again next week.” Do you think he was making that offer to everyone, but little ol’ me?
The definition for “communicate” is:
1) to impart knowledge of; make known: to communicate information; to communicate one’s happiness.
2) to give to another; impart; transmit: to communicate a disease.
Unfortunately, the “communicators” we end up getting are people like Dave Stancliff whose version of what it means to “communicate” is to tell everyone how to think and what to believe. Kind of like President Obama’s presidency; “say one thing and do another” and then wonder why some people are unhappy. Then question their sanity and blame the “unhappy people” for questioning him about his facts. But then, that’s just “politics,” or is it worthless opinionated conjecture? What does that have to do with personal integrity, good reputation, honesty, decency, moral commitment, self-worth or dignity and honor?
Everyone wants to do what they want, say what they want, think and believe whatever they want irregardless of who or how it hurts everyone around them. But, Lord forbid anyone that questions them on anything they say or do. They bring the wrath of God down on your head. Ask anyone to backup what they say or justify what they are doing and you get the Dave Stancliff’s of this world going at you like a pack of wild animals. Rather than discuss the merits of the subject-motivator or relevant issue in dispute, they take everything personal; an assault on their legitimate standing as a human being with the God-given right to judge everybody and everything. The first thing they do is lie about you. They say, for instance, that you “hate” – actually, “you have only demonstrated hate towards me.” They lie because they produce NO proof or evidence that justifies their accusation. Then they act on that lie and use that act as their proof. This is what makes them “false gods.” – 2 Thessalonians 2:3, 4, 9–12.
First, it’s important to remember, Mr. Stancliff came on this blog and with his very first comments directed personally at me, changed the rules. I was discussing my observations regarding the issues he raised in his newspaper article. In that instance I was NOT talking about him and as it turns out, with damned good reason. He made the issue about himself, about his credibility and legitimacy as a person with some standing in this community, not me. He changed the rules. Now he accuses me of “hypocrisy” and, “call me every name in the book, make malicious accusations, libel me.” Not one time does he show the reader or me what he’s talking about – “malicious accusations,” “libel” etc. Where’s his proof? Not one time in any of his comments this past year has he demonstrated the “malicious accusations” or “libel” or any other of his filthy accusations I’m supposed to be guilty of committing. He not only expects, but demands without any respect or consideration for the reader that you accept or take him at his word that what he accuses is a true and a valid fact. Is that not having “the nerve to appoint” himself “as The All-Knowing One” who, in fact “pontificates”? Now read his Sunday, August 1, 2010: ‘I know I’m right’ syndrome or being stupid and proud of it. Now tell me if he not defining himself here, over and over again?
I heard this on the TV the other day, something President Harry Truman supposedly said and I thought it quite appropriate to the Joe Blow Report: “I never gave anybody hell! I just told the truth and they thought it was hell.”
The truth is Dave Stancliff does not write for the benefit of the reader. If he did, he would NEVER take anything someone says that disagrees with or questions his so-call opinionated “facts.” He writes only for his own personal gratification and self-aggrandizement. Nothing wrong with that. Just don’t enforce the hypocrisy – say one thing and do another. The only one ratted out here is Dave Stancliff. That’s why I continue to let him vent his bile on this website. Nobody put a gun to anyone’s head and forced them to come to my blogs and read what’s here, let alone make some comment. Stancliff’s not the least bit interested in “communicating.” He’s only interested in trying to muddy the waters in the hopes that no one will see the true Dave Stancliff for who and what he, in truth, actually is. It’s tempting to tell you what that “truth” is, but we’ll leave it in Dave Stancliff’s capable hands. He does a better job of that than I ever could and that’s why he’s had comment access on this blog.
Finally, no one forced Dave Stancliff to come to my blog and say what he said. Nor did we ask him to demonstrate how you first falsely accuse someone, then act on that lie as if was the God’s-gospel truth – only to expose and judge yourself as the liar and the hypocrite. All we’re forced to do is treat him exactly for what he is. He’s had a year or so to change that. It was and is his choice, his responsibility to expose himself or not.
Fixated and Obsessed? – Not much doubt.

. . . and The Cyber Bullies
Yeah! That’s me behind that lovable face.
Who is the “me”? For all you know, Joe Blow can and could be anybody. Actually, he’s not really hiding. So, why not just identify him? Or, is it them? Who knows?
Joe Blow is NOT anonymous, either. Joe Blow is an Internet identity that when seen is instantly recognized and understood to represent a certain personality with well-established characteristics. He’s no different than Elmo, or Kermit with a little bit of Miss Piggy thrown in. All anyone really needs to know about Joe Blow is posted for all to see:
Number One Nobody! Born in Eureka, (Fifth generation) raised in Humboldt County. World traveled and life educated. American refugee. Lives forever.
The Joe Blow Report’s purpose for existence is also clearly posted for all to see:
This report is about fair and honest observations and not about opinions.
The governing principle driving that purpose is also posted:
Everything Is About Something Different
Joe Blow is here to ferret-out the “hidden agenda.” This is the reason the Joe Blow Report exists. If possible, to find the hidden, the covert, the subterfuge, the deception, the scheme, to show the truth behind the lie. Ultimately, to expose the liar; the “wolf in sheep’s clothing.” To quote an old saying: Neither Joe Blow, the Joe Blow Report nor its writer(s) have an “ax to grind.” That means: “Have a dispute to take up with someone or, to have an ulterior motive/ to have private ends to serve.”
Joe Blow knows there are risks involved in such an endeavor, but that is not why he or she, (or is it they?), write behind the pseudonym, Joe Blow. Joe Blow is and always was a “NOBODY”! To objectively write “observations” he must remain a “NOBODY.” To become “somebody” is to interject personality with the logical worthless opinions that accompany that person(s). For Joe Blow to lose his state of obscurity would destroy his Report.
Bullies, we all know, exist by sucking off of other people they believe are only there to serve their wants and needs. Anyone that doesn’t conform to that bully’s opinions is a direct threat to that bully’s existence. They live only to control and will sink to whatever depths of deprivation necessary to achieve that goal. The transparent reality of a successful bully is to threaten violent assault on their victim’s person, property, family or whatever they think is important to evoke an emotional response; either anger or fear.
Joe Blow clearly understood the risks of promoting such a Weblog. That is why he clearly posted the Report’s purpose under:
More About Joe Blow
Please be aware that the Joe Blow Report speaks for itself. You may or may not agree, but just remember, that is your issue. The Report is offered as a free gift to whomever desires to read it. Please accept it as such. The Report respects the rights of all individuals to be who and what they are. All the same there are consequences for what each individual does and does not do. If the Report stimulates a little thinking, it has fulfilled it’s purpose.
Joe Blow fully understands that whatever is posted on the Internet or printed in newspapers or spoken on television or on the radio bears the responsibility for being PUBLIC property, albeit sometimes copyrighted. Let’s hope that those Joe observes and reports about understand that as well. In other words, if you do not want to read or hear about someone’s observations, keep quiet! Or if you’re going to stand up on a soapbox in a public place and spout off you’d better be ready for a rotten egg or two.
Diatribe personally attacking the messenger, is not welcome.
No where in the recorded history of these Reports does Joe Blow single-out any individual, group, business, political organization, religious organization, sexual orientation, nationality, government, country or any of the many other diverse peoples whose sole reason for existence is to promote or denigrate other people or issues for special and personal assault. To produce credible observations Joe Blow must remain neutral — no personal, political, religious or any other bias.
These Weblog Reports are dedicated to thinking people. If the bigoted racist, the stupid, inane, moronic, paranoid, vacuous bully, or the ideologue believer that’s locked into the Dark Ages, is offended by this, then so be it. They need to grow up and get a life.
That is how they expose the truth of themselves. Merely infer that what they say or write is lacking some sense of knowledgeable logic or that they ignorantly made a “simpleminded” mistake then sit back to see if it was a simple mistake or a malicious and deliberate deception. If it was a mistake or a simple error in judgment, people will usually acknowledge it, correct the problem and simply move on. However if they were deliberate and malicious, they get extremely angry, go ballistic and personally attack with all kinds of foul and malicious accusations. That is how they show everyone exactly who and what they are. They are thus judged by what they do and say and everyone is a witness to that judgment. At that point the Universal Law of Karma is enforced and these people receive exactly what they sowed.
Joe Blow’s life endeavor is to practice the four governing principles of “The Four Agreements” as documented by Don Miguel Ruiz.
- Be Impeccable With Your Word
- Don’t Take Anything Personally
- Don’t Make Assumptions
- Always Do your Best
Sometimes bullies can be very intimidating, specially when they threaten your family, your property and livelihood, making a perfect application of these Agreements very difficult. It’s in the trying that defines the character.
It is in this “trying” that the Joe Blow Report finds inspiration in a world of bullies, descending into chaos and the Dark Ages.
