Why do we need to spend money on private companies to update the plan? Don't we have enough planners on the payroll?

On Bike Hoedown, Not Throwdown

Capps continues to be an embarassing nonparticipant in Congress, but the local voters seem to ignore her pitiful record and focus on her sweet voice and negative ad campaigns. ANYONE would be better, just to get her out - can always replace the victor in two years.

Here's a couple of thoughts on the wealth gap - government policies that favor the rich and keep the poor downtrodden by disincenting them to work, export of middle class jobs (SB is a prime example of this), businesses that keep profits instead of hiring new employees. What has Capps done to address any of this?

Gotta love these parents who are SO much more knowledgable than the medical community putting everyone's kids at risk. Perhaps public schools should require immunization.....

BTW, nomoresanity, the word you want is "imply", not "infer".

Enough, already. The 101 is one of the main North/South routes in California. This project has been delayed long enough by enough shenanigans by various myopic interest groups. A great example for using CEQA for obstructionist purposes. In the meanwhile, stopped traffic is belching pollution into Montecito twice a day.

Of course there will be traffic congestion during construction. Lots more than if the obstuctionista had not repeatedly blocked the project in the past.

And Schneider has just proved herself to be as "honest" as any other common politician - in other words, not.

Really. The Dems support Measure S. What an overwhelming, gasp-inducing, eyeball-popping surprise. It's big government spending of more taxpayer money, stupid! OF COURSE the Dems are in favor.

Funny thing: the Left couldn't stop screaming about Bush the Liar (presumed, but unproven), but Obama, with a pack of provable lies to his credit, gets a pass, as does Lois (I'll only run for two terms) Capps.

@dolphinpod14: I'm just thoroughly tired and disgusted of the recycled and regurgitated lies surrounding this issue. From ALL sides.

On Sheriff's Office Releases Roundup Video

when the voters quit electing the usual suspects based on party label and instead put people of merit in elected office that pledge to get the bureaucracy under control. Of course, Firestone was such a person and was rejected by the County Staff Infection and the other, liberal big-spending, union-supported supervisors.

On City Launches Financial Transparency Tool

I consider insurance companies to be at the bottom of the respectability pile, along with extremists, elected officials and attorneys. But where is the data behind this author's allegations? It's pretty easy to claim deceptive advertising secretly funded, and easy for some to believe, but where are the supporting facts?
