Which one of you non-progressives is up for a real argument? Seems like the lot of you are incapable of comprehending, not only the basics of economics, but also the process of building supply and creating demand for any product that's sold in this country. But alas, you're all too busy and tired hammering your contempt with unknown and inflated propaganda using Strawman tactics. Now repeat after me. "I, assumed expert in nothing meaningful, will promise to stop showing up in comment sections distracting the conversation with my gibberish". Think you could comply? Doubt it. Yet I promise if you do, us "progressives" will go out of our way to walk more often, ride our bikes more often, shop more efficiently, and utilize transportation resources such that we maximize return thus reduce the upward-stepping gasoline taxes that you argue immaturely about. Back to reality! All American Pipeline is only so by name. Because as Americans, we find it our duty to care about our land and resources while managing them efficiently with respect for the people, environment and locale from which the resources are mined from.

Hmmm. The car lot on state street next to the R&R tracks that came down in, um, I dunno, 1998? And then fenced in ever since? That's supposed to be a parking garage? That's still remains a mystery eyesore?

We know do nothing politics are pervasive in D.C. As well as we know the same is so here in S.B.

Shhh. Whisper softly. Build the parking garage incompetents!

On Funk Zone Business Owners Wage Parking Wars

Screaming. Some type of screaming. I crept up into the barn, I was so scared to look inside. Lambs. They were screaming. They were screaming. The slaughtering of the spring lambs. I took one lamb and I ran away as fast as I could. It was cold, very cold. I thought if I could save just one... But it was heavy. So heavy. I didn't get more than a few miles. My parents were so angry they sent me off to live in the city, I never saw the ranch again.

I still wake up to this day, hearing the lambs screaming. If only I could stop the screaming.

- Clarice

Moral: Our city administrators hear the screaming and they cower. Regardless the necessity of reason.

On Stage III Drought Emergency Declared

Ever wonder how Commercial Property owners can afford to allow units to sit empty? Buried in tax law is the option to claw back previously paid taxes when you have empty units. This is how they can keep rents artificially high and just wait out the renter, as opposed to renting the unit at market demand prices. So don't feel sorry for the make believe "loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars". That's a pixie dust statement. Instead, how about we stop allowing favoritism to the less than 1%.

Very assumptive to elude that Mr. Rowse won't have some stiff competition.

Attention Mesa. Mr. Rowse was not selected as your representative. He was chosen At-Large. This is not an incumbency but instead an opportunity for real leadership.

How to stop rape?

Okay young ladies, you've been warned. Apparently there's a ton of rape going on out there. It's a hostile and scary world and you've got every reason to buy into the fear of living in such a place.

So. As anyone in the military would wear body armor and a helmet to protect themselves in a war zone, you need to as well.

1) STOP DRINKING ALCOHOL and walking around INTOXICATED in this environment that YOU call SCARY.

2) STOP SAYING NO MEANS NO. It actually doesn't, apparently. (Ask any salesperson) No doesn't mean no. No actually means you've gotten too close to the fire and it's time to NOT DRINK ALCOHOL and walk around such a hostile environment in such a way.


It's pretty simple. 95% of these "rapes" would stop if PEOPLE just took their own precautions and stopped acting like the world owed them a red carpet to walk on while DRUNK.

On UCSB Students Call for Tougher Rape Penalties

Dear Sheriff,

Put it into your protocol that during arrests, officers on call are cognizant enough to remove eminent threats prior to apprehension.

Additionally, rate the overall threat based on necessity to grab, block or pursue a prospect or assailant.

This person had a misdemeanor rap sheet. There is a better way of handling these encounters.

We found the corium! We found the corium! Fukushima reactors are now located beyond the floor and in the sea. What are they doing? Radiating plankton, killing it which is causing the sun to warm the oceans with no plankton to take in sunlight and convert it to energy (food) that supports the ocean's animal kingdom.

Thanks GE for building the reactors! For your slogan now is truly ironic. "We bring good things to life".

If that photo is accurate and taken from the Motel 6 parking lot of the cars stolen, then it looks to be an inside theft job from Toyota. (Do I really have to do this type of deduction? Why doesn't the reporter mention the probable theft location?)

If this was an inside theft job then those cars were going international for sure or destined to a chop shop. Which means this was probably more than a drive by vehicle check and more of an excellent piece of work by our crack detectives.

Good work good guys!

10X Revenue? That's the claimed upside potential when most of the business growth has been OUS? I'm all for education of the masses, however, as a LinkedIn member, I'm certain 90% of users are dormant. It does make perfect sense as a job search site and Lynda fits in well here. But there's tons of direct competition in the online education space. Sure, LinkedIn members will now have not far to access a library. Yet I'm beyond comprehending how it's received such a valuation. Congrats to are newly minted local millionaires.
