Botany, why can't you take a single second out of your life and imagine that maybe those college students are having the time of their lives? Maybe old bitter people are only ruining it, when they could simply not live right next to the college?? Why not setup an environment to allow young people to socialize, why do you insist on everybody else having your same boring attitude about what life should be about?
Why don't you consider the fact that my solution makes EVERYBODY happier in the end, the people who want it quiet and the people who want to party?
What don't you understand about the fact that 99% of the neighborhoods are quiet, and not everybody wants to be in a quiet neighborhood.. College neighborhoods are perfect places to allow people who want to be social to congregate and have fun and party. It's better FOR EVERYBODY to have it focused and concentrated in one area rather than have it spread out throughout a good portion of SB. That is why Goleta is such a great place to live for families and why IV is one of the biggest party towns in the world. They coexist because few families don't feel entitled to go live in IV and expect it to be quiet. Those who do can expect to be ridiculed by me.
I'm sorry, you're not going to convince me that some how college students should, or will voluntarily not socialize late at night. Their genes are literally programmed for it, you can't do anything to stop them. All you can do is be combative and ruin other people's good time. Wicked witch style.

No Botany, it's like if somebody moved to downtown LA and started complaining about the asphalt and lack of dirt and trees - move to the country!! There is plenty of it out there.. I feel like some people literally crave being in bad situations just so they can complain, because for some reason complaining makes them feel better. I'm sorry if a person who chose to live next door to a college feels entitled to live in a quiet neighborhood, but that just isn't in the cards. They are literally surrounded by quiet neighborhoods everywhere, so stop acting like a freaking victim and move to one of them!!
You and Jarvis like to talk about personal responsibility, but then all of a sudden you have sympathy for these whiners and it is sorta baffling.

I'm all for the pipeline, I'm against the eminent domain land grabs. I wouldn't be surprised if some of the oil train/truck explosions haven't been manufactured for the purpose of passing the bill.

Sounds like the County should throw IV a Floatopia event and pay for the clean-up, it's the least they could do. Of course, IV residents would be willing and able to clean up the mess and handle it themselves if people stopped treating them like children.

No, I'm sick of people who think everybody else has to live a certain way and people can't be free to live in communities with like minded people and enjoy it. I'm ok with people who want it quiet to live in quiet communities with like minded people who also want it quiet, and most of our community is like that. Why they think EVERYBODY has to be like that is selfish and completely beyond my comprehension.
I'm sick of busy bodies and selfish people who think everything has to be their way all the time and can't see that what they want, a quiet neighborhood, which are literally EVERYWHERE in SB and they can't admit they chose a bad place for longterm living. They want everybody to acquiesce to them.
If I didn't like noisy students and I moved near city college, even if I lived in what once was a quiet neighborhood near city college, I would think to myself - gee if they ever expand city college then more students might move into my quiet neighborhood - I might have to move. Why? Because they are having fun and I don't want to be the person to ruin other people's fun time. Instead you have these people who want to go head to head and make everybody else around them live like them. They are trying to exercise their petty power over their fellow man. It is a very entitled attitude.
It reminds me of The Wizard of Oz. Even 100 years ago people had a mind to understand the strong connection and bond between man and animal. Dorthy had a dog that she loved. Then we had this wicked witch of a nasty woman who had a bad attitude. Todo the harmless little puppy bit the woman and even today over 100 years after the book was written many people still don't have the heart to see that it was the woman's poor negative attitude that caused the dog to react that way and for Dorthy to be punished by having her dog taken and euthanized was inhumane. 100 YEARS AGO, even people back then had the humanity to see how bitter old people are able to manipulate the system to ruin a young person's hopes and dreams and how they only did it to bring them down because they are bitter themselves.
I see these same type of people on the comment section here saying things like, "I don't understand why people treat their dogs so well".. I mean, c'mon, dogs have feelings and emotions too, when you leave them at home dogs will often get restless and nervous and unhappy. When you're at home or with them they are happy.. So the amount of happiness your dog enjoys is directly correlated to the amount of time you spend with them. People care about their dogs and want them to be happy. That's why people often like to bring their dogs with them. It shouldn't be a big deal. The problem is there are people who harbor a lot of negative energy and dogs react off that negative energy, it isn't always the dog's fault.
I actually feel bad for these bitter people, but I'm not going to acquiesce and ruin young, happy people's good times together for the sake of their own problems.

"why, in this day-in-age, are there so many of these violent "Lone Wolf" types, as opposed to a few decades ago?"
When was the last time a person that committed one of these lone wolf shootings had not been on or was not taking SSRIs?
I could not for the life of me figure out why in the 117 page manifesto Elliot Rodgers did not talk about the fact that he was being medicated by age 15. He talked about damn near everything else, including his current addiction to xanax, and everything else that happened in his life during those years in his life but nothing about the psychiatric drugs he was on??
Just one more reason to believe that the manifesto was written by somebody else using psychiatric notes rather than Elliot Rodgers himself.. Just one more reason to believe that this event, like so many other lone wolf shootings, was in part carried out by another individual who either manipulates the patsy into committing the act, is later described by multiple witnesses and then suddenly disappears from the official version of events in the media, or in some cases the primary patsy may not even be involved in the act at all and they are merely placed at the scene, drugged to the gills on seroquel or something.
When was the last time there was a lone wolf shooting where there were no witnesses who saw multiple shooters? I'm serious.. Multiple witnesses said there were multiple shooters in Elliot Rodger's BMW. A guy in camo was found and captured running away from the school out in the woods outside Sandy Hook after the shooting. Multiple shooters were described by multiple witnesses in the Aurora, Colorado shooting, the shooters wore masks and James Holmes was found outside the theater severely drugged up afterward.
Three shooters were described by some students at Columbine, one of them was reportedly taken into custody and was the son of the lead FBI investigator who had two sons attending the high school. The other son of the FBI lead investigator had made a video for one of his classes two years earlier depicting black trench coat wearing kids going through the school shooting people and throwing explosives. Are these all REALLY "random" tragic events that are taking place? Or is it possible these events which are used to further take away our rights, increase gun restrictions and prop up the encroaching police state may in fact be manipulated and carried out by a small group of individuals attempting to further those goals?
How many of the Sandy Hook victim families had previously been involved in gun control activism? How many were actors? How many were involved in Free Masonry and Central Banking?
When are people going to start taking a serious, realistic look at these events and stop believing everything they are told by the media?

Why stop at Holocaust deniers? Why not throw 9/11 truthers in jail for their beliefs? Or why not throw people in jail who don't believe Sadam had WMDs?

What could the sheriffs have really done? If they found his weapons stash, I guess they could have taken it from him.. But they might not have found any proof of his plans, he could have just said they were for self defense. Ultimately he could have killed more people if he just stuck to careening down Del Playa in his bmw through a large crowd. How do the Sheriffs prevent that?
If the Sheriff's were more aggressive as a policy, I would hate to see what would happen to innocent people.
I mean, I guess it wouldn't have been that hard to check the registry and notify the parents.. but it still seems to me like the easiest way to prevent it would have just been to figure out a way for him to get laid.

"Public schools should rigorously exclude UNvaccinated children from their campuses"
I'm ok with that - as long as you refund the tax money their parents are paying toward the schools so they can afford a private school.
