If they charge for campus parking, they'll also have to remove the special noise ordinances so that they can have music playing. Give them something to do - otherwise some of the people that come will get wasted, get bored an roam the streets looking for havoc.
Music calms even the savage beast.
Hundreds of thousands attend EDC and Ultra music festivals every year, deltopia has the potential to be a fun street-style music festival if they would only legalize freedom.
They could setup a camping area west of IV with portapotties and charge for that, too. Could also have a camping area by the lagoon. One weekend a year wouldn't be bad.
I don't understand this attitude that people are always trying to fight things. Especially when old people try and fight when young people just want to have fun.
That fight that happened at deltopia last year never would have happened if there was music going. The only reason it happened was because there is no amplified music allowed and so there isn't as much to do at that point. Of course, even if there is a fight, there is no reason for the police to start a riot.

Why not just charge $10 for on campus parking for the whole weekend and use the money to pay for portapotties and extra safety resources? Then Goleta residents won't be bothered at all.

Adolph Eichmann was in fact George Soros' stepfather. George Soros did go on the rounds confiscating property from Jews, he writes about it in his own books. You can read them yourself, I have.

Jarvis, you are wrong when you boil down the occupy protests to leftists and unions.
That's like saying Fox News was responsible for the Tea Party movement - Nope - Fox News hijacked the Tea Party movement just like the leftists and unions tried to hijack, and were somewhat successful and hijacking occupy. Occupy may have been tainted, but it was primarily a protest against the Wall St. and Banker bailouts from the government. It was a protest against the Federal Reserve and the police state. There were almost as many anarchists involved as their were socialists.
atomic_state is correct that these protests changed how a lot of people think of government and the police.

The guy's fiance broke up with him and they put him on SSRIs because he was depressed. When was the last time a mass killing happened where the person who committed it was not or had not been put on SSRIs or other similar psychiatric medications?
Look it up, these drugs often cause violent, vivid nightmares and daydreams among users.
As far as cockpits, they don't need navigators anymore because they have this new invention called a computer. A flight attendant is supposed to go into the cockpit whenever one of the pilots goes on break. European airliners are apparently a little more lax in this area. Hopefully this incident will bring to the attention of airliners the importance of having at least two people in the cockpit - this is only reason.
Airliners should hold themselves accountable for the safety of their passengers rather than relying on government regulation. Top-down safety regulations are a poor choice because it limits the ability of airliners to bring about new innovations in safety procedures that can make their airliner the safest one out there. They can develop a reputation around that, and if it is important to people then they can choose that airline.

"Loon, I'll admit that I'm actually perplexed by those photos. I never really looked into the whole thing but I would be interested too to hear an explanation." -sacjon
The chances of you getting a rational explanation for these photos are slim to nill. You will get mocked and harassed by some people for bringing it up, so thanks for your bravery.
Would anybody like to help sacjon and I out with an explanation?

Ken, sorry, but there was one section out of five of the Pentagon which was completely renovated shortly before 9/11 in order to help withstand......drum roll.....a cruise missile attack. It happened to be the side of the building that was allegedly hit by the plane, and it did it's job by containing the missile to only a few layers....these layers happened to contain the budget offices where many people were killed who may have had knowledge regarding the $2.3 trillion missing that had been announced the day before by Donald Rumsfeld. This was a $2.3 trillion money laundering operation, among other crimes. But as you can imagine, $2.3 trillion would be more than enough to pay off a few bad people, and possibly a few naive people who didn't know what they were doing, to help pull something like this off. The money also went toward various covert black ops, some performed by various private intelligence firms like Kroll who also very well may have had a hand in the attack.
Very likely, during renovations they installed demolitions in the walls which were timed to go off upon impact the the cruise missile in order to create a smoke cloud which the airliner could travel through in order to give the illusion that it had crashed into the building - which I can tell you, assuredly, did not happen. There is plenty of indication that the airliner did not in fact actually strike the Pentagon, although it certainly did fly right toward it as if it were going to. It was being flown by a software program. The transponders had been handed off from the planes that took off in Boston and Dulles to drones that had taken off from separate locations. The original planes that took off from the airports landed elsewhere, and I cannot tell you what happened to any of the people on the airplanes..they may not have all suffered the same fate. The planes were largely about half empty and had a lot of government contractors and military. The real planes may have been used to perform the terrorist drills the military had planned to perform that day, audio clips of which could later be used by the media to "prove" the incident happened.
