Anyone who believes this guy got this rich from legitimate business enterprise is a fool. Class envy? No it's resistance to class warfare by these predatory capitalists/robber barons. This boat is made from the losses of millions of working people.

Incredible how we are supposed to be buffaloed by the oil and gas industry's weak arguments and bad science and poor law. They repeat their assertions and some folks simply adopt them and parrot them. People saying the initiative was "poorly written" for example. People saying the potential county litigation risk is monstrous, for example. There is no taking unless the process is presently being used, unlike NAFTA provisions. If you are saying people have the unmitigated right to make money and exploit the earth and pollute us all based on the idea that stopping them would be a taking we are all lost: No environmental laws, no labor regulations, no zoning, no pollution penalties.... Come on, such a libertarian fantasy world would be hell and it is not Constitutionally mandated for sure! Vote Yes On P.

"No form of life lower" might well extend to include those contractors who hired shadow laborers and refused to pay middle class survival wages to the ones who did the work.

What obfuscation. What has the ethnic nature of the student population to do with the excessiveness of this proposal? SBCC has delusions of grandeur. It doesn't accept the job laid out for a Community College and aspires to international status. It has to cater to students from out of the district to pad its enrollment. And then the locals pay the cost in housing rates, congestion and stress on the community AND for the bonds over decades. And, honestly, this idea that SBCC is "number one" is sort of sad. There was only one rating that high and it was, as I recall a tie by a private foundation with its own agenda. Many other CC rating services don't even rank SBCC in the top 50. And SBCC is still responding to a certification scandal from a really official agency that could harm students big time. This proposalis too fat and too irrelevant to the needs of our local community. Vote no.

Having three votes does not give one more input if everyone else has three votes! This is a foolish argument. Having one vote in a small electorate is much more effective. And the biggest lie that has been bandied about for the last couple of decades is the claim that all people in SB have the same interests! This has allowed the tourist zone property owners and businesses to dominate the expenditure of tax money and public action to the detriment of neighborhoods on the north, east and west sides that can't get a sidewalk installed or even one repaired while bulbouts and traffic calming devices are dumped into the downtown.

JarvisJarvis--I don't think you get to set priorities alone. Democracy will do this. You can have your one vote.

We should have district elections for the simple reason that small is better when it comes to democracy. Districts allow voters much greater input and knowledge and direction for their interests. Larger districts allow the elected officials to ignore, dismiss ordinary folks and to pander to the large contributors and those who have machines which "get out the vote" for a special interest. Probably district elections would result in more diversity on the council as well.

We were lied to about the use of Measure V bonds and now we face Measure S to do what Measure V promised. Don't be fooled again.
