aptly-named Autocoalition imagines his comment has anything to do with Allen's topic, auto wrote "The drivers tend to drive well above the 65 MPH speed limit" -- uh, so actually this would help us "Transition in Energy Sources Mean-ing Less Fossil Fuel Use". Just run us out of gas, Mr Allen, THEN we can turn to renewables. Fossil fuel on the way out, that's how it will be. After Measure P, comes Measure Q.

On A Businessman’s Perspective on Measure P

Posted on September 7 at 10:29 a.m.

Sure he's in over his head, but he isn't clue-less. No one wants to put our boots on the ground over there, but we all realize it's coming soon. Drone strikes and black ops alone will not stop the destructive forces which Hydra-like morph into names like Al Q, Hamas, Isis, Boko Haram, Jos. Kony's child-mercenary armies in Africa... long list, should be pretty frightening for those of us living INSIDE the citadel, inside FORTRESS AMERICA...sheesh, back to the 1930s thinking.
Obama's wise to resist rushing in...Ukraine isn't a member of NATO, let Merkel and Germany/France/UK deal with him... Assad? Mainly, settle the problem of the West Bank and Israel. Force of arms won't help in any of these. Agree tabatha.

Measure P will not ban drilling for drinking water, Ken. Howevermuch P was dreamt-up by "out of town lawyers", we need to regulate the way the oil freaks go about secondary recovery. Oil is on the way out: good. Read a businessman's perspective here:

not sure I agree that it's suddenly UCSB and SBCC's responsibility to house these students... In fact, leave UCSB out since they, with more resources and land, have built over 5000 student units on UC property, and they're at least trying to mitigate the IV scene. But SBCC shouldn't have to become a building contractor and erect, oh, 8,000 rental unites in the City of SB -- hey, that really would be IMPOSSIBLE.

agree jdiggs, Measure P as drafted will NOT shut down existing oil extraction operations in SB County. Contra all their LIES: Measure P will NOT shut down existing oil extraction operations in SB County. But risky or experimental extraction techniques like fracking and so on as described, these won't be allowed. Good. YES on P!

Freeway Widening Foodfight OVER since CalTrans's final EIR came out this week [Sept 2014]: all left-side on-ramps & off-ramps eliminated. Let's move on. What a lot of ridiculous palaver and political positioning by Carbajal and Schneider fighting for left-side off-ramps at a couple of Montecito spots [e.g. Hot Spr. Rd], when it was foregone that WAS NOT GONNA HAPPEN. However, their campaign booty will be nicely enhanced for their next races.

I still may vote Yes on S, but Lanny is terrible as a spokesperson for it. Is MacDougall and Ebenstein all you've got, Gaskin? Won't make the 55%

On Answers to Questions About Measure S

Posted on September 3 at 7:41 p.m.

In Daniel 5 the prophet tells Belshazzar, king of Babylon, that these mysterious words mene mene tekel upharsin mean"you're DONE" and don't even know it. The city fell the next day to the Persians.
mina, mina, shekel, half-mina. This is the interpretation of the matter: mina, God has numbered the days of your kingdom and brought it to an end; shekel, you have been weighed on the scales and found wanting; half-mina, your kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians. —Daniel 5:25–28
The real meaning is in the "mene mene", an idiom implying that a (usually) negative event is easily predictable based on the current situation: the Fall of modern Israel is easily predictable, unfortunately, given the disproportionate and BLOODY slaughter of 500 Gazan kids, etc., as the author of this piece states: Netanyahu is a stupid monster and with his coalition and Likud is leading Israel to destruction. Many Israelis do know this in their bones: the fear there is palpable and avoidable. [PS phrase has zilch to do with Czar N., dewdly's a fool as well as a troll]
AMERICAN JEWS in concert with Israeli peace groups like Peace Now do need to unite, seize the moment, work with J Street...or Israel is doomed. I believe most know this.
