So sad they did not succeed in their quest to bring a little levity to Suzy Ra Ra Junior High School. The Bumbling Bureaucratic Clowns currently in charge of the School Board, District and SBHS is a crying shame, the school has really suffered in recent years.
Monday the Robot Calling System will be burning the wires with important messages from the clowns.

Chumash are just as infected by the deadly sins of humanity and no different than us, they just did not have the technology of large ships and thunder sticks.
The European Conquests of the New World were not any different than ISIS, they displaced and destroyed the inhabitants from coast to coast. My Nation/Religion/Culture is better than yours, the sad reality of humans on this planet from the beginning of time.
Later other Europeans did it to each other in the form of Manifest Destiny, round and round in the circle game.

Hey Goo Heads, the Yankee Carpetbagger Dams, that you all get your water from and are responsible for millions of dead mammals, fish, fowl aren't a problem and don't enrage you?
The Dams that have killed and continue to kill each and everyday of every year. You don't think the Hoover Dam is benign, do you, lookup up pictures of the what was the Gulf of California and its Estuary.
How about the Bradbury Dam that destroyed the once fertile Lompoc Plain, or the Hetch Hectchy Valley, once as beautiful as Yosemite Valley.
Talk about hypocrisy.

Big Oil is not the only Villain in these parts.
Look at the Dam's that have been operating for decades and calculate the hundereds of thousands if not millions of mammals, birds and fish that have died off from the use of dams to trap and divert California water.
The Hoover Dam destroyed the Gulf of California and it's once thriving estuary.
The dams built on the Santa Ynez, Ventura and Santa Clara Rivers destroyed an entire Salomon population.
The local Bradbury Dam destroyed the Lompoc delta grasslands that once supported a herd of 10,000 animals, domestic, tule elk and bear.
Big Oil did not build these dams, the United States Government did.
Big Oil is the whipping boy.
Yankee Manifest Destiny brought to you by Washington, D.C. and the 1930's Western Exploitation Projects have killed more mammals, birds, fish and destroyed more Western Environment than all the other Villain's combined.

On Refugio Oil Spill a Crime Scene?

"Why does a 19-20 year old kid have the right to buy guns?"
Federal Law prohibits an FFL (Federal Firearms Licensee) from transferring a "Pistol" to anyone that is not 21 years of age or older. Federal Law allows an FFL to transfer "Long Guns" (rifles or shotguns), age 18 or older.
California follows Federal Law. California has its own firearms laws, some of the most restrictive in the nation.
The Murderer purchased the Pistols legally, age 21, and passed a 10 day California Department of Justice Background check.
The problem is age 16-25 is the critical time that people develop mental illness, it is a progression of time, not instantaneous and Society has not really dealt with nor has in place mechanisms to identify the onset of mental illness.
The dirty little secret is Society does not want to be burdened with the Cost of mental illness.
I have been around mental illness my entire life and have witnessed my family trying to help two members that really did not want to be helped. The Court System makes it extremely difficult for concerned family members to intervene.
Both members were a danger to themselves over the years but Courts act after the fact when person is almost dead from their own self neglect or start to threaten others.
The cost of Mental Health runs into the Billions each year and they rotate in and out of the system, example Santa Barbara's Homeless, when they go off we either have mental health by COP, the mentally ill are killed, or to a lesser extent they kill us, the current IV tragedy, the last IV tragedy, Congresswoman Giffords tragedy, Colorado tragedy, Sandy Hook tragedy, Virginia tragedy.
All Males in the at risk years of Mental Illness and the mental health system failed to identify or place prohibitions on their purchase of access to firearms.
Considering 10% of the human population suffers from some form of mental illness, statistically only a few commit mass murder.
Laws are in place but they do no good if society fails to identify at-risk individuals.

Danny Boy, I hope you are just as outraged at the millions of gallons of HEAVY BRINE that the City of Santa Barbara proposes to pump into the Pacific Ocean each and everyday with their Desalination Plant, no free lunch it will do a lot of damage and kill many many organisms.
This is so sad for the wildlife, I witnessed the 69 spill and the damage.
4,000 gallons of Santa Barbara raw sewage, 21,000 gallons of oil, and proposed millions of gallons of Santa Barbara heavy brine water daily - it is an ecological disaster - Coastal over-population.

Do we need Desalination? Yes without it there will be RIOTS.
Yes we do, but only because the current and past Santa Barbara City Councils have Failed to do there Jobs. They have failed to stand up to the California Legislature when it said, “Build Baby Build”
They have failed to have a NO Growth Policy. They have failed to have a working and robust Reclaimed Water System.
They have failed to replace the failing in-ground infrastructure of rotting water and sewer pipes.
They have failed to understand that social policy is still controlled by Natural Law and that populations must remain sustainable into the future and social policy must work within the tenets of Nature.
They have failed to realize that the technology that created this false reality is old and antiquated and must be renewed with more modern technology and forward thinking.
They have failed to see the 14-year drought that is happening in the upper Colorado River Basin, would be coming down to the Sea.
They have Failed and now must react in desperation before the population sees the Emperor never had any clothes in the first place.
All your elected officials have Failed.
So now more sewage flows into the Ocean, massive heavy brine will soon flow into the ocean and you will have the Channel Islands sticking up out of a dead cesspool, which was once our beautiful pristine coastal waters.

I would rather see the City of Santa Barbara Reclaimed Water System working and upgraded instead of wasting potable water on irrigation. A much better use of the Peoples Money.

When arriving at a situation it would be logical, in order to secure a non-lethal outcome, to accertain the mindset of the person causing the disturbance.
If the person is amped then it would be prudent to allow them to calm down, maybe discover if they were drunk or on drugs. Firing TG in the first fifteen minutes would be gross negligence without knowing the condition of the person and maybe lead to their death, commonly known as suicide by cop.
A life was spared and we in the peanut gallery have no idea why this individual went off, sorry if your pathetic internet life was harmed in any way.
The pictures of the firearms, that are shown elsewhere, are benign and common, but makes sensational press for those with hoplophobia.
Now that this gentleman is in the system, those old firearms will be going to the smelter.
I have come to the conclusion that the Internet is just a playground for children and grumpy old men and has no meaningful social value.
Kiddy Games and Propaganda what a waste of bandwidth.
