Thank you Gail for your article!
FINALLY a voice of reason instead the hysteria which has weighted on this discussion.
What I know for sure is that my son was spared the massive vaccine pollution as a child being born in Europe and having spend his first 10 years there. They have almost the exact same percent of people who are vaccinated as here. What is missing is the massive hysteria and if one decides to not partake or to partake more selectively, you are not treated as a second class citizen, criminal, nor moron…all sediments I have experienced here if one "does not want to tow the party line"
I nursed him through the measles, chicken pox, and whooping cough and he is the healthiest kid on the block.
With the excellent health care system there which allows each parent 15 paid sick days for childcare, this is over and above the 6 week paid sick leave allowed, for the adult, it is possible for a parent to stay home and nurse a sick child without economic hardship.
I am continually amazed that this reality is never brought into the vaccination discussion. We do not even have a paid maternity leave never mind paid sick days to care for our children!
For who really benefits financially from the children being vaccinated aside from the companies who make billions on these products?

I consider my son to be blessed with excellent health. He is free of any allergies, chronic illness, and in his 22 years of life he has only needed antibiotics once after his impacted wisdom teeth surgery.
Our personal experience of being unvaccinated concurs 100% with the New Zealand study sighted in an earlier posting. Unvaccinated children are healthy and stay healthier then vaccinated children.
Unvaccinated he contracted measles, chicken pox , and whooping coach during his childhood years . During each illness I his mother nursed him back to health.His immune system was given the opportunity to strengthen itself through fighting and overcoming these childhood illness!
What parent in the USA with the health care system we have here would have such a luxury? Sorry boss my child has chicken pox. I need off for at least 7 to 10 days to care for him….and yes the recovering time for whooping cough can last weeks.
We were fortunate to be living in Germany during his first 10 years and there every child is covered for No extra cost under their parents health insurance plan. In addition to a possible 6 week paid medical leave, a parent can claim up to 25 days paid sick leave a year for each child.
Strange how no one has made the connection that with the health care system in the USA no parent could afford to stay home for two weeks and nurse their child through the measles..the majority would not have a job to go back to!
Whose economic interest does it further to have all children vaccinated?
Whose economic interest does it further to have children's immune system's weakened ?

Shout out to you Jay for having the strength to persevere, wow 5 years ! and win this judgement against Sheriff Padilla!
Yes it is a sad day to know that this creten is still on the force and speaking from personally experience that he continues to use excessive force.
You deserve every penny of the $120, 000!! Pity it wasn't more.
Smart move having the jury trial moved to LA.

OMG…Did anyone of you commentators even bother to read the article?The author was advocating for the legality of skateboarders using the bike lanes downtown, as many of them already do, Without being ticketed for a ridiculous $155.!!!Actually the responsible skateboards came up with a very sensible solution to being a possible danger on the sidewalks and took to the streets, i.e. the bike lanes. Let the bikers express their views on sharing the bike lanes with the skaters and everyone else support a solution which does not ticket kids with ridiculous fines!

Dear Mr. Reiche,
Take responsibility for your overuse and pay the bill, stop winning, it is unseemly for someone with your resources to want special treatment.
I ask myself why did it take a drought for the people in Montecito to see the writing on the wall? We live in a climate that is habitually short on water. This plus our increasing population demands that we all radically reduce if not eliminate altogether lawns.
So congrats to your getting on board with helping yourself and the community by saving one of our most precious resources, Water!

Sorry to rain on your parade but the sheriffs were doing their jobs. To protect the public is what they signed up for and what we, the tax payers, pay them to do. We can still express our thanks that there are people who do sign up for this but I personally do not call them hero's.
We, and I mean , everyone living in the USA needs to ask themselves why and how our countrymen and women have come to use violence and most often gun violence to solve their problems, and what each and every one of us can do to bring about a movement away from the senseless murdering which has become a daily event in the USA.

I feel that you have all missed the point of this article, meaning that the legal drinking age of 21 yrs is an archaic law which is not only not in keeping with our times but also with the international norms. All and I repeat all other civilized countries on our planet have the legal drinking age at 18 or even younger. In Germany you can order beer at the pub at 16yrs! Do they have the massive binge drinking that happens here? No I can tell you for a fact, having lived there for 25 yrs. ,that children Learn to drink responsibility within the confines of the family! That is the norm in all of Europe. It is a well known fact that it is because drinking is illegal here until 21 that causes so many totally unnecessary problems. It always struck me the height of stupidity that a young man can give his life for his county with 18 but isn't allowed to walk into any store and buy a beer. The students recognizes this absurdity and therefore do not respect the law. It is sorely in need of an update, i.e. revision!
