Jerry Dagna — or Jerry Dagger?

Well, it seems that no matter what I try posting on this blog, the conversation sooner or later gets around to our man Jerry. People are piling on poor Jerry for what he says, what he doesn’t say and even for the fact THAT HE TYPES IN CAPS!

So here, I’ll turn over some space on the blog tonight. Type away and chime in on the subject of Jerry.

Personally, I’ve known Jerry for more than a dozen years. Yes, he’s a true blue conservative and he is devout in his religion. But I do not believe him to be racist. Does he say inflammatory things? No more than Rush, or Sean, or Randi Rhodes. That’s the nature of talk radio — all those people push things to the edge, strictly to get a response. Jerry does that more than others in KVECland, but people often fail to separate the rhetoric from Jerry just jerking your chain. He’s done that for years with my show.

So, c’mon, friend or foe, let’s hear from you about Jerry D.

    Great topic Dave!

    Although I *rarely* agree with Jerry (especially when it comes to the wonders of Phoenix), I always appreciate his opinion. At the very least he’s good for a decent laugh.

    I think it’s very interesting (and revealing) that Jerry has moved to and loves Phoenix so much, but continues to have such strong opinions about SLO topics. Guess one’s heart never leaves the Central Coast.

    I’m not sure if Jerry’s insistence to type obnoxiously in all caps is just to get attention, cause a little trouble or if he really doesn’t understand social norms—either way, I think it lessens his credibility with many blog readers. As a teacher, I sometimes think it’s just laziness. According to netmanners, it makes him a net “knucklehead”.

    I’m a little confused about all of the deleted messages from Jerry. Did he delete them all, or did Dave? Why?

    I happen to agree with Jerry on many issues (Phoenix being nirvana isn’t one of them), and think he had the courage/bravado to say things that many of us are thinking but that we wouldn’t say in public.

    I also think I can appreciate Jerry’s brand of humor, as he reminds me a lot of my late grandfather. He too liked to start heated arguements, and then sit back and watch people bust a gasket. It caused some pretty serious strife in our family at times, but Gramps loved a good arguement, even if he had to start it himself.

    For the record, I don’t think Jerry’s a racist. I do think he likes to jerk people’s chain, and I think it’s hysterical.

    As for why doesn’t he just leave this area and never look back… I can’t answer for him, but I think I know.

    Jerry loves San Luis Obispo. He hates what it is becoming, and wants everyone to wake up and save it before it’s too late. I happen to feel very VERY strongly that he couldn’t be more correct in predicting the downfall of SLO (it’s already happening), a place that those of us that have been here for more than a few decades have seen change for both the better and the worse. Lately, mostly for the worse.

    Jerry, don’t let these folks run you off. When you’re speaking about SLO, you’re speaking for people like me. Those who grew up here, went to school here, and have found themselves struggling to make ends meet, while their families have all moved away in search of more affordable living. No matter how much I loathe what is happening to San Luis Obispo, and even though I know that someday I’ll be packing it in and moving somewhere else, SLO will always hold a special place in my heart, just like I think it does in Jerry’s.

    Just for the record, I’ve never deleted anyone’s comments from this blog. I would never do that, unless requested by Clear Channel for libel reasons. That hasn’t happened.

    Jerry, DON’T LEAVE US!!!!

    Kirk In Slo first turned me on to listening to Jerry a while back. I absolutely LOVE him. Finally someone who is able to speak out when some of the rest of us can’t.

    It’s fine to disagree with someone, but some people who turn these things in to attacks (especially just for using the caps lock) just need to chill out and realize it’s a blog.

    I hope Jerry isn’t going to bail on us, we need his voice.

    Well maybe I should weigh in this topic, since it’s my very favorite! You have no idea the pure enjoyment he gets out of posting comments and then watching all the lil liberal wind up toys run around blog spouting! I’ve actually seen him belly laugh out of control. The caps and comments are working perfectly. Pavlov would be proud of all you liberals.
    As for Phoenix let me say this. Every 2 1/2- 3 months enough people move here that would equal 2 times the city population of San Luis Obispo. Must they all be stupid? We sold 1 house in SLO and bought 2 here… Cash! One we live in the other makes us a net of $979 every month. Last year it appreciated $54,000 on an investment of $175,000. That’s a 37% return on an investment in 12 months and each 12 months after that. I’m glad I met a stupid man like Jerry.
    We have great weather 9 months of the year, great golf, great dinning out (second to only San Francisco), affordable housing, abundant jobs, great lakes and mountains and you can fly almost anywhere for $39-$99. Property taxes on the home we sold in SLO are $649 per month…Here BOTH houses are $209. Yep! He’s stupid all right!
    We now have a son and daughter in law living here. He bought his first home (3 bdr 2 bath) for $140,000 and qualified for it making $14.00/hr. More family is moving here by Christmas.
    I liked SLO, although it’s a bit more hyped than it should be. 50% of your homes are rentals, the town crawls with young college students that park on their front lawns. The city is broke…the county is broke…the State is broke and a starter home is over $600,000 on an average household income of $38,000…hmm.
    The entire area is congested with tax supported employees that you pay 75-90% of the wages until they die, not to mention the liberal bent that wants nothing to change all the while Poly students and rich Orange County parents really own your town, and don’t care a lick about it as long as their property values skyrocket. OK, you choose to be asleep at the wheel that’s fine, Attack my dumb husband that’s fine too. Just know this. He loves every minute of it. In reality you should all be glad that at least hear one person is willing to tell you that emperor really doesn’t have any clothes on!

    I caught portions of your program yesterday concerning the apartment owner who gave tenants 30 days to get out, among other things. When Dagna came on, his rants and raves showed me that he is more of a jerk now than he was when he lived out here. Maybe the heat of Arizona got to him. It seems he’s trying to be Limbaugh, Hannity and O’Reilly rolled into one hateful person.

    I never will forget the filthy, hate-filled, diatribe against gays that he spewed on your program [the subject was gays and Boy Scouts] three or four years ago. Yet he constantly referred to himself as a “born again Christian” what ever that is. Bush says he’s born again as well, which seems to give him the prerogative to screw the poor and the seniors, flush the country down the toilet, etc. Dagna fits into that mold very well, but I’m sure Christ wouldn’t think much of either of them.

    Well, Rich, since you are not a born again believer, how can you comment on what Christ would think? Have you checked out what he thinks in the bible? God does love gays and other sinners, just as he loves you and I, but he does not love the sin in our lives and when you believe on him and are “Born again” as it were, then you will be able to understand the bible and understand what Christ would think.

    I thought you listeners would like to view Rush statements. I don’t see the need to have Viagra when you are a single man, but would you like it Dave if the sheriff stopped you in Nipomo and exposed you to this type of privacy intrusion?

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

    RUSH: To Flint, Michigan, this is Jeff, and welcome, sir, nice to have you with us.

    CALLER: Mega dittos there, doctor. First time, long time. I followed you since 1991.

    RUSH: Thank you, sir.

    CALLER: My reason for calling: I was gone over the weekend, celebrating the Fourth with some friends of mine at an automatic weapons shoot, and when I came back I noticed that they decided not to charge you with the Viagra pills —

    RUSH: Yeah.

    CALLER: — and I had a question about that. My question was: Do you now have to return all the samples back to the Clinton Library?

    RUSH: (laughing) He remembers I told the people at Customs, “Look, I got these at the Clinton Library Gift Shop. They told me they were blue M&Ms.” Yeah, I’ve just seen some of the media coverage of this in the last, what was it, the last half hour, or maybe the last hour that it started. My friends, you know, I have always been able to rise above it all, and this is just another example. But let me tell you about this because this was surreal. This really was. Last December… I don’t know how much I should tell. This is purely personal, this is. Last December a friend said, “You gotta get…” (interruption). It’s not…? (interruption) All right, all right. Snerdley says, “It’s not personal anymore. You may as well.” One thing about it. I’m looking at the media coverage of this, and they are regurgitating facts that have nothing to do with anything in this story.

    This story purely and simply is that there was nothing illegal about what happened, and thus there aren’t any charges. There was nothing illegal here. This never had anything to do with the previous deal that I had made with the state attorney’s office down here, and the media has been hoping and praying that this would lead — and, by the way, I understand. They hate me, folks. As I said last week, I expect them to want bad things to happen to me, and I expect them to not like me. I have targeted them for 18 years. It’s quite natural that they do this. I do not expect objectivity or fairness from these people where I’m concerned at all.

    So don’t get mad about this. I find it interesting that they continue to regurgitate facts that had nothing to do with anything in this story, and what happened is that somebody — and I assume it’s at Customs — leaked this. How else is this discovered? You know, all this talk about being a watchdog on government, the media, a watchdog on government, they’re going to make sure the government doesn’t overstep its bounds, doesn’t spy on citizens. The media is going to make sure the government does not endanger people’s civil liberties. Well, I guess when it comes to mine, they get thrown out the window. Somebody in the government leaked this against me and then they kept regurgitating it, and it was just used to attack me.

    As I say, I have risen above it all each and every time. I’m just a private citizen in this circumstance coming back into the country. Mine was the only luggage searched that day, from what I’m told, at Customs. If my name had been Valerie Plame I would guarantee you this story would have been written differently and it would have read differently and there would be all kinds of, “Who in the government is leaking the identity and the details of this? He is an average, ordinary, common citizen,” blah, blah, blah. But of course that’s not the angle with me, which I fully understand. Now, there’s so many aspects of this story, and this is understandable. I can understand how people would assume incorrect things because it’s a quite natural thing to do.

    A week ago Monday, I get back from three days, two-and-a-half days, in the Dominican Republic, and most of the time spent touring cigar factories and cigar farms. I had this bottle of Viagra in my briefcase. I’ve had it in there since December. I forgot it was even in there. There were 30 pills prescribed, and when they counted them out, there were 29 — and yet, everybody thinks I loaded up on the stuff for a trip to the Dominican Republic, and that’s what everybody was saying. “Wow, what went on in the Dominican Republic? Oh! (muttering).” In fact, when I cleared Customs there was this… I’m going to be very restrained in describing the agent but… I’ll save that for another time. Anyway, I pointed out I have a briefcase that’s got many different zippers. It’s not a top that closes over a bottom. It’s this thing that stands up; it’s got side pockets and all that, and I opened the primary compartment where most of the things in the briefcase are, just to be cooperative, and she reaches in there, pulls out this bottle, says, “What have we here?” There are twenty-five people in the room. “What have we here? Viagra!” she shouts, “and look, it’s not your name on the bottle! This is a crime! This is a violation of law!”

    She’s shouting this all over the Customs Office, and the whole room has come to a dead stop, and she races behind some closed door to her supervisor. The supervisor comes out and asks, “How many other prescriptions do you have, sir?”

    “I’ve got two.”

    “They have your name on it?”

    “Yes.”

    “What are they?”

    “Look at ’em.”

    He said, “Well, what’s this?”

    I said, “I had an intestinal blockage in December. They’re for that.”

    “Oh. How much cash are you carrying?”

    I started to pull my cash out.

    He said, “I don’t care to see it, just tell me.”

    I said, “Less than $1,500.”

    “Okay.”

    I had a little white bag of things and he opened it. “What’s this?”

    I said, “Those are cuff links and golf balls from President Bush. I had lunch with him last Friday in the White House and dinner with your boss, Secretary Chertoff, the night before at the Supreme Court.”

    “Well, sir, I have to tell you that this is a violation of law, and we have called authorities in Miami and blah, blah,” and they detained me for three or four hours and whatever it was, and actually it was the state attorney’s office here that ended the whole thing by sending some sheriff deputies over and finally getting a statement from me and taking the case under their jurisdiction, and they today said there’s no crime here, and they’ve announced it but the media is still reporting all over the place all the effects of the deal that could have been thwarted had this been prosecuted and regurgitating facts that were not part of this story at all.

    I had some friends with me, and they were standing aside. This actually started this way. When you come into Customs in Palm Beach on a private airplane, this is one of the few Customs offices that I’ve ever dealt with — and they know you’re coming, by the way, because you have to give them your passport name and ID, passport number, date of birth and all sort of stuff of all the passengers on the airplane a week before you depart. So there’s an inbound list and they know who’s coming in that day. It’s required by law. So somebody in there knew I was coming in, and from what I was told from people that were there during the time I was there, mine was the only luggage that was searched.

    In fact, they didn’t search the luggage. They just searched my briefcase and the little white bag, and they made me open my computer. But they bring all the bags off of the airplane. I had four guys with me, and they were going on to Miami. I was going to put ’em on the airplane to take them to Miami to catch a commercial flight to Los Angeles. So we get in the Customs office, get my stamp on the passport as having reentered the country and I start helping the luggage guys distinguish my luggage from all the others, because they’ve mixed it. They’ve got three carts, so I want my luggage on one cart since I am leaving, and the other four guys’ luggage on other carts that go straight out to the airplane and I’m over there helping, and this agent says, “What are you doing? This is Customs! You haven’t been cleared,” and I smiled.

    I said, “I’m just trying to expedite my friends getting outta here when we finish because they’re going to Miami.” So I went over there and that’s when this whole process started. So somebody in there had to be waiting. I think this was leaked before I got out of there. I think it was in the news before I actually was in the car on the way home. But anyway, there was never any “there” there. It is not illegal to possess Viagra. It’s like saying it’s illegal to possess Prilosec or some other non-controlled substance that’s prescribed for things, like, what is Prilosec for? Antacid medicine or what have you. So that’s it. I appreciate the call out there, Jeff, but it’s over now.

    Folks, I’m going to be honest with you about something here. This incident has taught me. I had a golf trip planned for Spain in August, and I have canceled it. I am not going to involve myself with United States Customs for the next year and a half until this so-called probationary period evaporates. I’ll tell you, the election cycles of ’06 and ’08, especially ’08, I think it’s going to be one of the most vicious and filthy of our lifetimes, and I know I’m going to offend some of you Customs people out there with what I’m going to say next, because I know most of you are… In fact, this was the first one I’ve ever encountered like this, but it takes one time and I’ve got red flags up, and I’m not going to put myself in a position of being framed.

    Most places they come on the airplane and they process you there and they stamp your passport and search whatever they want to search, and sometimes they’ll search the airplane. Sometimes they’ll take the seats out, you know, depending on where you’re coming from. Well, you can’t watch them do that. You’re supposed to keep your distance. You can’t leave the airplane, but you can’t watch them do that, and with all this obvious partisanship that’s out there, I’m just not going to make it easy for people to frame me or whatever. So I’ve canceled that trip to Spain, and I know, when I told the guys I was going with, I said, “You may laugh about it, and I hate thinking this way, but it’s the only smart thing to do. It just takes one experience,” and you know, I have political enemies, theoretically, everywhere I would go and come back in the country. Normally when I clear Customs, when I come back from Europe it’s Bangor because you’ve got to stop for fuel. They’re great there. Atlanta. Teterboro, they have been fabulous up in New Jersey, in the New York area. But this was unreal. This experience was totally unreal. Anyway, that’s it for that.

    BREAK TRANSCRIPT

    RUSH: Richard in Naples, Florida, you are next on the EIB Network, sir. Hello.

    CALLER: Hey mega dittos, Rush.

    RUSH: Thank you, sir.

    CALLER: It’s an honor talk to you on the day after Independence Day.

    RUSH: Thank you, sir.

    CALLER: You know, I was calling when you were commenting on your experiences you had at Customs over at PBI.

    RUSH: Yeah.

    CALLER: And —

    RUSH: Wait just a second. Hang on just a second.

    CALLER: Sure.

    RUSH: A little inside baseball talk. For those of you in Rio Linda, that’s the West Palm Beach Airport. Okay, go ahead, Richard.

    CALLER: Oh, sorry about that. I’m trying to also do my banking and keep my employees coming to work in the next few days.

    RUSH: Yeah.

    CALLER: Gotta do their payroll here.

    RUSH: I understand.

    CALLER: I’m doing two things at once, so I do apologize.

    RUSH: Eh, it’s fine.

    CALLER: One of the things I did was I had a charter company, and we used to fly people to and from places in the Bahamas, and one time I was taking the bass guitarist for AC/DC and, you know, these gentlemen have long since stopped partying or anything like that. He is with his family. He’s got his wife; his two small children with him and we’re clearing Customs in Palm Beach, and the way that the Customs officers treated this gentleman was like he was some sort of drug dealer that they were about to arrest. They talked down to him; they put him in a corner. They were just… I mean, they cut him down I don’t know how many different ways right in front of the two small children. On that day, I was so embarrassed as American, I cannot even tell you how it made me feel.

    RUSH: Yeah, well…

    CALLER: So you’re not alone with this, and I’ve seen it before.

    RUSH: I know. I normally don’t use Palm Beach Customs because I come into the country from Europe. You have to stop at the first port of entry, by law, unless you get overflight permission, which you can get. So sometimes it’s either Teterboro or Bangor, Maine. They’re great in Bangor and they’re great in Teterboro, and they’re fabulous in Atlanta. But this was the first time it’s been this way, and I know why. I mean, I’m under no illusion as to why. They didn’t treat me as badly as the way you described the AC/DC guy, but the one thing that’s funny about this is, you may be wondering, “Why didn’t you just fly straight to Miami and get your friends dropped off there?” It’s because my pilot said, “You don’t want to mess with Miami Customs.” (Laughing.) He said, “They don’t like corporate planes at Miami Customers. You’ll be waiting. You’ll get hassled.” So my pilot recommended Palm Beach Customs in this case. You live and learn. But, anyway, I appreciate the call, Richard. I’m not surprised. This office does, apparently, have this kind of reputation. I don’t know if they got the AC/DC guy on anything, but this is the first I’ve heard of it, so unlike in my case, they didn’t leak it in his case.

    I think I can shed a little light on this topic.
    First I should say that above all I believe in seeking dialogue and argument with all sides, because like Aristotle, thru serious discourse is the only way any of us can find the truth.
    That being said, I guess I was the one who pushed Jerry into deleting all his posts. I didn’t do this out of any mean spirit, but I feel that Jerry is not trying to be part of any discussion. He comes in with these quick hit, inflammatory statements and then refuses to either support, substantiate, or defend himself. He’s been doing this ever since he’s been a part of Dave’s callers. What we don’t need is more people in the ilk of Randi Rhoads, Sean Hannity, etc…Nothing gets accomplished by this style of drive-by commentary. It only serves to inflame and divide.
    What I did was call Jerry on his previous statements. He has repeatedly made racist and homophobic statements. When I called him on just one of his statements, and when I accused him of plagiarism (which I can prove), what is his response? He DELETES all his previous posts! He doesn’t try to counter-argue, discuss or even deny my allegations. Instead, he cryptically types a bible verse citation, which basically calls me a fool.
    If his purpose is to incite – fine. If his purpose is to get “all the lil liberal wind up toys run around blog spouting!” (sic)- then fine again. But in the end, is he really contributing anything?
    Finally, I do not wish for Jerry to stop posting. I just want him to be civil and engage in dialogue.

    btw – and this is the martini talking, getting your WIFE to defend you – thats beyond chickens@#t

    Hey New Tone,

    Here’s a news flash for you. When you leave the country and return, your bags get searched by customs. Happens to everyone, especially people, like Rush, who have been in trouble with the law lately. Once again, you compare apples to oranges.

    Jerry is just your ordinary old AZ-HOLE. I couldn’t help myself. He’s got problems and I don’t really care if he gets help. He’s a typical bully who hides behind “HIS” interpretation of the Bible and believes if government would just get out of our lives everything would be hunky dory. Of course that doesn’t include who you can marry, freedom of speech, right to privacy, and what god you choose to worship or not worship. Brett

    Dave,

    Are you telling me that since Rush Linbaugh was addicted to pain killers, that now he is to be searched all the time by US Customs? Do you think they search Charlie Sheen? I don’t have a problem with them checking his bags, provided they had a reason to.

    I do not personally think it appropriate for unmarried people to have sex. That is wrong. To have Viagra like Rush did is not right. However, I feel it is an inappropriate use of our governments power to invade privacy if when searching a person’s bag to provide what is inside of the bags as Rush indicated in his transcript and what was in the news. No crime was committed.

    To me it is not apples and organges to say that it would be innappropriate if during a legal seach of your car, Dave, the sheriff found a bunch of products from Diamond Adult world. Not only did they find it, but held the items up for all to see, and then release it to the New Times by the time you got home. The stop and search was appropriate, yet the release of the private information that is not illegal is not appropriate.

    I hope you understand my point of view on this. You have a double standard. You are very critical of Rush and his problems, you are very understanding of other people’s problems. You almost wish Rush the worst. I don’t agree with Sean Penn’s politics, and I laugh at him toting a shotgun around Helping Katrina Victims but it is not in the news when he f’s up because he is a liberal.

    New Tone —

    Let’s try this one last time. Nobody went into Rush’s bedroom. The government did not go into his bedroom. He was searched by customs officials coming back into this country from the Dominican Republic (Why was he taking Viagra to dr? Hmmmm).

    The same thing would happen to me in that situation. My bags would be searched. They happen to find a prescription not in his name. They investigated. Big deal? No, but it’s nice to see that the law is also enforced.

    Do I pipck on Rush? Sure. Sometimes, though I’ve also made it VERY clear that I consider Rush to be the savior of English-language AM radio. I give the man his due.

    But he beats up on people for fun, so from time to time we dish it back. Big deal? No…..but it feels good!

    I have been avoiding commenting about Jerry Dagna and New Tone, not because I think I’m better or anything like that, because I am not any “better”. I have just thought that if you ignore people who try to “flame” others by some outrageous quote or some inane assertion that really doesn’t add to the conversation. I think Jerry is very intelligent and articulate, it is just my opinion that his viewpoint is too skewed to the right, which has occurred to me also that he may be trying to be a “parody” of an extreme right wing type of mentality. I sure don’t know which it is for him and no matter which it is, he certainly has every right to comment here and calling in to Dave’s show. I would only suggest that maybe he consider how what he says is heard and/or interpreted by the readers here or the listeners on the air.
    New Tone: As for Rush and his “troubles” with the law, I had predicted that he would walk away from any legal entanglements, and he has. The interesting situation that has been illustrated by this episode of Rush’s is the hypocrisy of the right- like how Rush used to rant on about “locking up all of the illegal drug users” and “throw away the key”; but when he is busted for that very violation of the law, his listeners fall all over themselves “defending” his innocence. I would imagine that when Charlie Sheen travels, his luggage is scrutinized very carefully, as would any-other “celebrity” who has had drug problems. I will say in Rush’s behalf that if the encounter happened like he said it did, that customs agent was being petty and not very professional.

    Everyone ones gets searched by Customs. Me and the 300+ soldiers that flew back from Iraq with me were all searched by customs BEFORE we took off and after we landed in Baltimore. That’s after we had been in Iraq for a year (I know, it has more to do with weapon souviners and dirt than any illicit drugs). Point is that when you re-enter the country from abroad, expect to be searched. Innocent people have nothing to fear from that.

    I am not going to keep on saying what I think compared to Dave. After all, it is his blog.

    My point is that it was not illegal for Rush to have what he did. I don’t have a problem with the search. My problem is (and I would hope I would feel the same way if it were Mike Moore) that the way that what was found was made public information immediately, and the way the customs official allegedly acted. If doctors commonly issue prescription for well known patients in their name for privacy, what is the big deal? If a doctor gives you a sample of a drug, the bottle does not have your name on it, does it? Does that make me a criminal for having Allegra samples that my doctor gave me? If I came home from Russia with them, does it need to make the news that I had Allegra?

    I have listened to Rush Limbaugh since 1988. I have always found him to be fair minded towards people with drug problems (Marion Barry comes to mind). He made fun of them. To his credit, when he realized he had a problem, I think he realized it can happen to anyone and all of us if we allow it to go that far. I don’t think any of us are immune to the possiblity of drug abuse, adultery, or other addictions if we allow ourselved to get there in small steps. Even John Hopkins was a herone addict.

    You can all pile on to Ruch if you want, but consider if you feel the same way towards you liberal friends that are addicts or you are just glad an articulate conservative voice has a chink in his armor.

    Well, maybe he’s devout in his religion and all, but as a Christian pretender in my book. I’ll never forget the horrible, vindictive, filthy, hateful crap he spewed on your program 2 or 3 years ago against gays. And he calls himself a Born Again Christian… well, so does Bush and we know how he feels about the poor, seniors, environment, gays, etc.

    would it interest any of jerry's listeners to know he is an abusive, alcoholic, wife beating narcissist? there are police records to show record of his abuse. this man is a danger to himself and a danger to society at large due to his destructive and violent attitude. that should be self evident from his atrocious broadcasts. why anybody would support such a vile, disgusting creature is beyond any of us who've had the misfortune to know him. please do not support his nonsense. you are doing yourself and the rest of us a great disservice.
