Police and prison unions should be rallying the cry for more mental facilities and less jails but they're not.
On County Psych Facility Needs More Beds

"The county jail has long been Santa Barbara’s largest holding facility for the mentally ill. "
"For Riordan, the big issue has been the system’s chronic inability to address, let alone resolve, issues afflicting patients dealing simultaneously with both mental illness and substance abuse. Treatment is not just more humane; she cited county studies indicating it’s cheaper by roughly 30-40 percent."
County Voters rejected the jail approach to mental health. It doesn't work and is too expensive.
But that doesn't stop Sheriff Brown or Das Williams from wasting their time, continuing to go against the voters will and push for an unwanted and unnecessary jail, when they should be doing their job and working for more mental health facilities instead.

Someones got to feed the ever-growing bureaucracy of the UC system. Who's gonna pay for all those bloated pensions and salaries? The under represented, un-organized student of course. They will learn a good lesson about how to screw over the next generation. Thanks to Das Williams and the State Legislature for avoiding any kind of reform of how the UC system is structured and how it operates.

Todays planners would have never approved that much land preservation. County planners today would be trying desperately to add mixed-use developments all along the coast.

These two guys are idiots, plain and simple. People who want guns need to take an I.Q. test. That way these two idiots could stay home and play video games.

If the Republican party ever wants to regain power in California, they need to get back to where they once belonged.
During the 1950-1960's they were the pro-choice party supporting abortion rights in the name of less govt. interference into citizens lives. Today the evangelicals have taken over the republican party and have abandoned pro-choice rights for women. Perhaps Mr. Jeffers could offer his strategy as to how the GOP will get back to being the pro-choice party it once was. That would help the republicans because a majority of Californians don't want the Govt telling them what to do with their bodies.
The republicans have abandoned their balanced budget policies for "no new taxes" rhetoric. Today, when you elect republicans, they spend $$$$$$$$ like drunken sailors on "foriegn entanglements" and are the main supporters of the "military industrial complex" that Eisenhower warned us about. However, when it comes to paying the tab, the republicans try to steal money from programs that benefit Americans, like social security and Medi-care.
Essentially the republican party has become the party of corrupt special interests. They continually try to cut taxes for the corporations that suck up most of the tax money the poor and middle-class people end up paying.
That said, the democrats are only a few steps behind the republicans. They're becoming nearly as corrupt as the republicans with their $68 billion dollar bullet trains through farmland and bloated salaries and pensions for govt. administrators at UC campuses at the expense of college students on student loans.
