It's okay EatThe Rich, you will have BFF sticking with the Independent.
On NLRB Sets <em>News-Press</em> Hearing

I would not expect to find concurrence in the Independent echo chamber. Of all places. But there you have it; an alternate view point reinforced easily once you leave the Independent mind-control cocoon.

Eat the rich; it explains why the continuing law suits against the N-P keep losing. The unions have to save face so they continue to flail, rather than admit they were the reason the whole thing blew up in their faces.
The greatest irony is sadly now learning how right Travis Armstrong actually was. But today's guest editorials are rich in thought, fact and research.
But they do discomfit the smug progressive crowd who continue to join in healthy debate about critical issues that affect us all. Their hegemony was shattered when Ms McCaw took over the NewsPress and their wounded howls continue today as they face their progressive irrelevancy.

If you are referring to the encampment the owner of the Child's Estate allowed on her own private property you have nothing to compare to the squatter camps that now riddle our city. Hers was a Depression Era very disciplined campsite for working men, no alcohol and high degree of self-government.
They knew they were given a special privilege by the owner and honored her generosity with mutual regard and trust. This camp was also started well before the current social safety net that provides the equivalent of $40,000 each in goods and services.
And a US population now claiming federal disability benefits in numbers equivalent to the entire population of Greece, or Portugal.

If you want to run a business, become the owner. That is how you get all the rights you want. If you choose to be an employee, you will have to accept the choice you made that you don't get to call the shots. I am surprised people still do not understand these fundamentals.
Yes, Ms McCaw has the right to put out the paper she wants and take her chances that readers will purchase what she prints. Seems to be working very well for her. Yes, workers can assert enumerated rights under established law. But as non-owners that is where their rights stop.
This is a dead issue: The owner controls content. Workers can take it or leave it.

Here we go. Time for the Casa crowd and their friends to thank their generous enablers in Montecito. MTD Bus # 14 to Montecito Upper Village. http://www.sbmtd.gov/maps-and-schedul...
You can pick up bus # 14 up at the Transit Center or on Milpas Street. Hang out in the nice little park at the corner of East Valley Road and San Ysidro Road and count on some very generous hand-outs.
Then take the bus back to town, or not. Plenty of good hedges and creeks in Montecito to call home, thanks to all those residents who want you to stay a while in our town.

People who care the animals having adapted to a domestic environment would be day prey if they were returned to the wild is what would be sad, cruel and unnecessary.
With the number of domestic zoo animals reproducing will keep zoos full, so the issue is over-population now within domestic settings because few truly wild animals even get into these settings. Providing homes in museums or zoos for these second, third and more generation animals is the only humane response.
SBNH Museum - your plans were lovely and enhanced the educational experience for all visitors and those who use you as a prime educational resource. I hope your dreams come through some time in the future and you can do what you planned so carefully to carry out.

Impairment by intoxication is far more than just alcohol. I feel scammed yet again by Casa's duplicitous operating policies.

Tabatha, you need to discuss this with Lois Capps, Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein. Otherwise you are merely sowing seeds of class resentment, class envy and class warfare at the local level, which has no jurisdiction over these issues you present as important.
Why did all those "strong unions" quickly make their industries non-competitive and ultimately fail, costing those "middle class workers" their livelihood and now even their pensions and promised retirement security..
Bubble economies are not healthy no matter what inflated them, and should never be used as a benchmark for anything.
Only dunning taxpayers keeps the public employee unions thriving today because voters have not yet made the connection they get a pay cut, in order to give pay raises to public employees. They keep thinking someone else pays, every time a public worker gets a raise.

You forgot the Founders were drunks and libertines as well. Yet out of their failings they produced an enduring document with flexibility enough to respond to changing conditions, yet strong enough to not get trampled by those elected who attempt to ignore it.
I support Vandenburg on this one, as well as the US maintaining a high global security profile, regardless of not having any "known enemies" or not. Coincidence or causation? Time and circumstances will tell.
