JarvisJarvis submits the value of the rule of law and suggests changes to things you think are unjust via a democratic process....
.... and you describe that as "how tyranny works".

What about U.S. citizens, including legal immigrants who are offended by illegal immigrants who are having their city college educations subsidized and using up class resources while being here illegally and breaking the law daily?
Can that also be removed by SBCC staff?

Citizens of the U.S., including legal immigrants, feel bullied every day by illegal immigrants who break the law by crossing the border illegally and stay here breaking the law daily.
We feel bullied and betrayed by politicians and bureaucrats that support spending our tax dollars (ie: hard work) paying for SMHS education for lawbreakers and their children.

1. I know it's super hard for people to understand but the best way to stay out of prison is....drum roll.... Don't commit a crime. Gasp! For example: don't willingly and by choice carry a suitcase filled with $10K in cash when you know it's for a criminal act or on behalf of a criminal.
2. Dozens upon dozens of research projects have been done to find racism in sentence or release and probation rates and guess what? In America there is none, zero, zip. People go to jail these days because they commit a crime, not because of the color of their skin.BTW: men are incarcerated 95x as much as women. Does that mean our system is gender bias and there is a war on men? Don't ask Starshine sunshine and her educated Smith college white ex-con book selling narcissist.
3. Money can help you defend yourself better - true - but what alternative system do you propose? Dictators fairly deciding for everyone? See Venezuela for the latest result of the Progressive dream.

Mr. Webber, let me try and help.
The construction of that intersection is done by government and private Union workers, led by union leaders who press for long, slow, innefficient construction cycles to raise labor costs and line worker and Union coffers (and their own pockets).
Some of that money is paid by union leader to the very same politicians that you vote for - lib dem pols - over and over.
Congratulations! You're 20 minute wait is exactly what you unknowingly asked for and support - but now you realize it.
Keep voting for government union workers and rules and regulations to support crony capitalism!! Bigger government is better government - always.

Yes, I completely agree with what Botany said, plus:
1. Very sorry to hear about the tragic event in your life and thank you for your countless hours of serving the community and children in need.
2. There is a place on Sola between De La Vina and Chapala that was endowed by a rich guy to create very low cost housing for 55+ based on a waiting list. Far below market rates. Big red brick building. 3-5 year waiting list and you have to stop by and call each 1-2 months to push. If you move to Ventura, you might be able to come back via that place in a few years.

Murillo and Hart are bought and sold by inefficient, self serving union leadership.
Living wage is more government distortions that hurt the marketplace. (why not make it $100/hr if it's so good for the economy).
If you're curious what a community looks like after Progressives run unchecked for a few years with all their social justice and good intentions, just look at Venezuela.

More criminals and lawbreakers running free through our streets and communities.
Let's join the ACLU and celebrate! So cool!
Our quality of life has never been better - and with these creeps and drug users and criminals not being put in jail, it's only going to get better!
Rainbows for everyone.

Thank goodness Mr. Torres is able to notice and take care of film directors because the restaurant experience for everyone else is horrific.
I have been three times - mainly for the view, since I'm not a glutten for punishment and here's the pattern:
1. The restaurant hosts do not make eye contact, use their hands to waive off guests to indicate they are busy and seem perpetually pre-occupied with something other than hosting/seating people.
2. The brunch shift is stunningly understaffed and incompetent. - over three visits, average 10-15 mins before a waiter shows up. Not just me but other guests, who all start talking to each other about how bad it is.- constantly interrupting conversation to pester guests over and over about trivial things. 'Would you like this napkin removed?", then back again, "Would you like us to remove this wine glass?", then back again "Would you care for water?", then back again "Would you like me to take this?" then back again, "take that?". We counted 9 interruptions *before* our food arrived and *not* including the waiter taking our order. It's not the fact that they are tending the table... it's the fact that they are super inefficient about it. Why not offer water, take what is not being used on the able and stop haranguing diners?- It's also that they seem to not realize or care that their guests are in conversation - they just barge in with questions, interrupting.- instead of removing a glass to refill it, they reach across in front of your face and pour, dripping water from their pitcher, blocking your view, etc.
3. They are the most apologetic people in Santa Barbara. Constantly apologizing and sending out managers and so on to ask if you are OK and how sorry they are for the wait, the interruptions, the incorrect orders, the cold food, etc.
4. Obsessed (like a trained scipt) with saying "How are you enjoying your visit to Santa Barbara?" with no regard to the concept that locals may be dining with them. Sure, 9 out of 10 diners are probably hotel guests, but why mis-place a question to the 1 out of 10 locals?
All finished with the El Encanto. buh-bye.
