my suggestion to ignore dewdly is mainly because...he's interested in slander generally, and about my gender in particular [it's pretty hilarious]; and s/he's awfully nasty, too. This thread is about D.Thorn's wild query:"Will America...choose 'life' or 'death'? Israel or Hamas?"

yeah, enjoyed Condon's book and others by him...agree there are some conspiracies that are "real" -- but when little is know about an issue or event, or when folks like loon know little about an event, they [he] very frequently state "false flags" present or a single malevolent "conspiracy" is behind the whole complex event. While you might prefer Occam's razor, it's often not valid.

Ernie's Modesto Bee ref is interesting; after a State water bond for ca. $6billion [likely too LOW] we may be faced with another state bond: "some legislators, builders and union leaders are hoping that once the governor finishes with the water bond, he will sign off on a second bond for the ballot, this one for $4.5 billion to build new schools and modernize existing ones. It’s a tough sell." I am ALWAYS for schools, but my more narrow focus is on STUDENTS and TEACHERS; we seldom hear about teacher:student ratios but lowering this ratio is an extremely effective method for enhancing student learning. And expensive: but so are these damned buildings, and what if we can't/don't have the funds to hire great young teachers?? Oh, sarcasm here: I know, wait, with all this "modernization" of the existing buildings, read TECH SUPPORT, we won't NEED many teachers it'll all be e-learning and Skype-teaching, MOOCs, etc. Hire great teachers, pay them well, get the focus off aquatics centers, sports pavilions...and back onto TEACHING and LEARNING...

while Yes on S, Ernie and others could look into what Pierce College (LA) and its consortium of city colleges did with a huge bond issue THEY got a few years ago: cost overruns, embezzlement, shoddy buildings, and the upshot was that colleges like SBCC may not really be capable of running CONSTRUCTION PROJECTS like the one Ms. Gaskin envisions. Like, she's a licensed contractor and SBCC would know how to run building projects on lines this massive? I guess Gaskin and Glen Mowrer and the SBCC Bd. will finally come forwrd, but I do need much more detail on how these funds will be spent. Warning to SBCC: you seem a bit arrogant to toss this out there and then just imagine folks will roll over and pass it, like the 70% who passed the last one, V. How about some justifications, eh?

try some facts, JL...Measure P doesn't halt oil production in SB County, it limits certain ways of expanding that production. Fine, "usual scare tactics" etc., back it up with data, big guy.

well, Tab, since they've got nothing, no science to back them up, they exaggerate, use the Big Lie, "muddy the waters" as you say since lies are all they have.

@14noscams, I'd add that Islam also has extremely potent ties to Jerusalem: the "Further Mosque" is there (Al Aqsa); the Dome of the Rock is above the supposedly sacred rock where Ibrahim [Abraham] putatively sacrificed Isaac [Isa] is there, AND it's also the location where the Qur'an says Muhammed leapt into some Moslem holy sphere (not Heaven) through 40 veils to converse with Allah and Moses and Jesus and lots of others.. Muhammed got there on a sacred Night Journey on Bouraq the human-headed steed. Both Al Aqsa and Dome of the Rock are on Temple Mount: 3rd most sacred spot in Islam. When I was inside the Dome of the Rock the Allahu Akbars and sacred chantings were intense and all were bowing and so on; Moslems showed me the heel imprint in this Rock which Muhammed supposedly left when he jumped up. This is a VERY sacred spot for Moslems, right after Mecca and the Ka-aba. When religious Zionists want to re-erect "the Third Temple" it would have to be after destroying the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa...a pretty big mistake.
