We were off the waters of Santa Barbara early this morning. We had a 1/2 mile long chum slick going. We also had long, high test lines and high caliber guns. We were ready for a fight but the great white did not appear. We will be out there again tomorrow morning early. These beastly creatures do not belong in our waters and I promise my fellow citizens that I will not exercise any restraint in its capture or kill.
On Great White Shark Spotted Off Leadbetter Beach

Why is this news?
How many people have to die before one day everyone will recognize that it is a documented fact that Northern Santa Barbara County is a favorite hunting ground for great white sharks.
These are not "rumors". If you speak with the locals or fisherman up there, you will learn that it is not a place you want to go swimming - especially anywhere between Gaviota Pier and Government Point - and Jalama and Surf Beach.
If you are looking for a casual day at the beach frolicking in the water with your children or simply trying to enjoy a friendly surf, best you head down South where the waters are tamer and more "fished out".

What? Could this be a case of the fire department trying to over-regulate and meddle in citizens' affairs? Who ever said these guys are over-paid and under-worked? I wish I could get paid double-time for working out and only have to "work" 3 days a week. Retire at age 50 with full salaries anyone?
The fire department should focus on fighting fires rather than exerting their ever expanding influence into all facets of our lives.
Bottom Line: The salaries and benefits of our fire and police personnel need to come back to reality. Heroes??

Do you really want to get into a racial breakdown of the crimes committed by youngsters in Santa Barbara?
If you did, you would find that the overwhelming majority of crimes are committed by Hispanic youths NOT white kids.

I would hereby like to officially nominate Mr. Scoles for Mayor of Santa Barbara.
As a longtime Santa Barbara resident, I have watched as our town degrades year after year. Whether it is political correctness or total ineptitude (i.e. Mayor Blum), the political "elite" in this town continue to run it into the ground at an alarming rate.
Before long, we will all be forced to ride bicycles to work as there will be no more available lanes for cars.
As Mayor, I know Mr. Scoles will be able to clean house a la Michael Douglas in Falling Down. I hope and expect Mr. Scoles will become a modern day super hero who will summarily and appropriately expel all of "the drunken bums, illegal aliens, and Mexican gangbangers."
Touche, Mr. Scoles, touche.

Rennergizer: great points.
Is it not crazy the entitlement mentality that is displayed by today's general public?
It is everywhere.

Even our presidential candidates have to pander to these radical "La Raza" groups:
It is no wonder that Mayor Blum is their puppet. Mayor Blum's problem, like that of most politicians, is that she is engaged in a never ending quest to be loved by all. That is why it was great to see Obama, no matter whether you support him or not, call out the Black community about taking responsibility for the outrageous statistic that 70% of black babies are born to unwed mothers. Jesse Jackson, the race-baiter that he is, interpreted this as "talking down" to Blacks instead of supporting Obama for his leadership.
(Please note as a point of clarification that those on the Left want to be loved by all, except those that are "rich" and "do not pay their fair share".)

Wow. Freedom of speech anyone? Is this WWII Germany? Or is this modern-day China? Is this really the United States?
It appears Randy proved my point in regards to the P.C. police, the media being hijacked, and the inability to have a frank discussion about certain topics. Thanks, Randy.
My post that was removed had 100% accurate information in it. I did not call anyone names nor was I mean or insulting nor could it be accurately classified as a result of "rage."
Randy, please re-read my post and ask yourself if that really warranted to be censored and completely removed from an open discussion. I would have no problem saying what I said to anybody in person. Why should I be scared or hesitant to cite facts? Apparently, as I stated earlier, that are A LOT of people, including Randy, who are afraid to confront these difficult facts.
Do you realize you just erased a post that simply contained facts? My post did not contain any "vicious name calling" as RForsyth inaccurately said. RForsyth also proves the point than any critical naysayers instantly get labeled as vicious or racist even though they simply proffer facts.
Am I not allowed to say that the admitted goals of certain Latino organizations, namely MeCHA and other La Raza-types, is to re-claim Aztlan?
Given the behavior of the over-zealous monitor on this site, one would think I was spouting outrageous propaganda and that I was the radical.
I was curious so I googled "mecha aztlan". The first result even cited a text book from Santa Barbara School District! Check this out:
Please do not censor this, Randy! :)
Randy here: thanks for expressing your opinion in a more acceptable fashion.

There is something fundmentally wrong with the Hispanic community in SB in that they do not speak up against this sort of outrageous and animalistic behavior. Where is the outrage? Where is the leadership? Where is the self-responsibility? Where is any introspection? Lose the Latin machismo and acknowledge the fact that your community cannot control its young men. The Hispanic communmity fails to emphasize the value of education. They are self-destructively stubborn.
Also, because of the draconian P.C. laws present in the U.S. now our own media cannot report about the legal status of those involved.
I hear rumors they were illegals but why not report the facts? It is a salient aspect of the case. The P.C. police censor the facts from everyday citizens.
They should be ashamed of themselves.
