On Drought Turns a Light on Farming Methods

JJ - "How much water is wasted, contaminated and diverted to support the huge marijuana growing industry in this state?"
Less than the amount used to wash cop cars and drug-sniffing dogs. They're actually pretty drought-resistant.
Has anyone noticed that while"toxic chemicals" are always mentioned in pot busts in the hills here, no toxic chemical has ever been identified?

Santa Barbara county was #2 out of 58 counties in the state for pedestrian deaths and injuries, #3 for alcohol related deaths and injuries, and #4 for bicycle-related deaths and injuries.http://www.ots.ca.gov/Media_and_Resea...
"Since the early days of cholera epidemics, we have known that reducing injuries and deaths depends on fast data reporting and collection methods. We need to employ the same kinds of tools to reduce bike and car accidents."
SB's bike accident statistics look bad, but the bright side is that they're not analogous to communicable disease: Bike accidents don't cause other bike accidents.

loonpt - holograms, not David Copperfield:
K. HologramsHologram, Death. Hologram used to scare a target individual to death. Example, a drug lord with a weak heart sees the ghost of his dead rival appearing at his bedside and dies of fright [149:4].
Hologram, Prophet. The projection of the image of an ancient god over an enemy capitol whose public communications have been seized and used against it in a massive psychological operation .
Hologram, Soldiers-Forces. The projection of soldier-force images whichmake an opponent think more allied forces exist than actually do, make an opponent believe that allied forces are located in a region where none actually exist, and/or provide false targets for his weapons to fire upon. New concept developed in this document.

Small farms aren't considered sustainable under Agenda 21.I read story of a farmer who had been on his farm 30 years and planned to leave it to his son. His property was seized to create a migratory bird refuge.http://www.thenewamerican.com/usnews/...http://farmwars.info/?p=10111

"The extended drought in California, considered the worst in over a thousand years" should be considered a final alarm bell" that we have a credibility problem here. The Association of California Water Agencies researched California droughts and compared California’s most significant droughts, from 1929 to 1934, 1976 to 1977 and 1987 to 1992. as well as the current drought, and published a summary in the report, “California’s Most Significant Droughts: Comparing Historical and Recent Conditions,” http://www.water.ca.gov/waterconditio...

JJ - "Francisco, Rowse and Hotchkiss who simply want to balance the city budget" - this reminds me of Obama's words about transparency during his regime. If it turns you on to hear these 3 market themselves as fiscal conservatives, then vote for them and increase the city's liabilities.They all want public safety endorsements and are no better than the cc liberals in contract negotiations, but their real problem is that these are the people who continually lobby for increased SBPD hiring at current compensation levels, as crime has plummeted. They're good about cutting human service programs that cost less than the OT SBPD canine handlers get for feeding their dogs and put people on more expensive social welfare programs, but they compensate by increasing costs to protect their turf; the downtown tourist district. They've been costing us more than cc liberals for years. They're also the reason we have no tax income from medical marijuana dispensaries; $8.6 million in LA in 2014. I think anyone would have to be nuts to want to open a dispensary here after the way the city jacked around the ones we had, but it's one example in a long list of the city's MO ; outlaw sources of income, increase spending on government, reduce services, and increase costs to residents.

“Instead of focusing on actual U.S. history, for example, critics say the radical new Advanced Placement (AP) history curriculum represents hard-core Marxist indoctrination. Among other concerns, a growing roster of opponents argue that the new scheme hypes and exaggerates real or imagined wrongs while presenting everything in a collectivist mold. Meanwhile, it downplays and ignores virtues and goodness in America’s historical development and its experiments with liberty and self-government.”wnd.com/2014/08/common-core-history-deeply-biased-against-u-s/#pxatV22ishX4yIYE.99
Language and math lessons propagandize environmental and political agendas that vested interests would like young minds to absorb. Think re-education in the best tradition of Mao.
The primary creators of the curriculum refer to the Common Core competencies as "cognitive and psychological aptitudes". We've finally turned our educational system over to the psychologists lock, stock and barrel.
