To paraphrase Lenny Bruce: I'm not worried about ISIS invading Solvang, where the hell are they going to park?

But the good news is, non of the Feminists, Christians, hedonists, "infidels"...wait, I guess ALL of us in the Western World are potential targets...

As I was saying, only the people ISIS *specifically* claims they are going after are in danger, so by that logic, all the above-mentioned groups should not only feel safe over here, but should traipse around the Middle East with impunity, no?

What a load of paranoid crap.

"He’s got that, like, Michael Jackson syndrome. He’s a really sensitive guy, but he’s got so much damage.”

What they have in common is the fact that when you attain great wealth, you are surrounded by people who will never say "no" to you, this is where the term "yes-men" (which of course also applies to women) comes in.

Most of us have to be accountable to someone, which is what keeps us from running off the rails, but the Ty Warner's, Bernie Madoff's, and the endless parade of self-centered and/or neurotic high-profile public figures often started out as normal people, then self destructed for lack of accountability.

Let me add to Jarvis's comment by pointing out what Santa Barbara defines as "low-income". What is "low-income" by Santa Barbara's definition would break the bank accounts of many professional people living in other parts of the country so Santa Barbara's attempts to remedy the problem have blown up in its face.

Is it not "Ukraine", as opposed to "The Ukraine"?

Jarvis, if only wealthy people can live in a given place, who then, will do the manual labor?

Indeed. When a story cannot be spun about one's race, or about "the children", poor people tend to be cast aside.

Apples to oranges, baby... your arguments just don't add up. And by the way, I don't know what a putz or mashugana is, but if it's something you consider offensive... well, thank you for the compliment!!

Somebody once said to me, in speaking of other co-workers: "What a bunch of Yutzes!" I asked "what's a Yutz", so he says to me "Do you know what a Putz is?"...to which I said, "yes", then he replied "Now you know what a Yutz is!"

I just had to share that, and I'm sure you all are most grateful that I did.

If the tenants had been white, and Majestic Asset Management were owned by someone of another race, would you (The Independent) be mentioning race?

Do you realize that every time you throw out the Race Card randomly that you create a situation where people are more likely to not believe you when you *do* make a legitimate accusation of racism?

Bad journalism on your part, you can do better, and should do better.
