There's been fracking and minor earthquakes all over California recently.
On Refugio Pipeline Shutdown Puts Brakes on Oil Production

$5.00 a gallon here we come!Might guess is the shifting of ground near the shore caused this. Fracking could have created some tension through minor quakes...But don't go running to Sacramento to protest Governor Brown's willingness to pollute! Fracking is all some corporations fault right!

Jarvis, you need to get off the sabotage rhetoric, your giving the climate change crowd way too much credit. The focus should be elsewhere, like cost. We talk about the cost of "clean-up" but the boots on the ground doing the actual cleaning account for far less than the coast guard and the EPA, whose sole purpose is "monitoring". The politicians cost us as well. Not only are we paying them to say it's all some corporations fault, but they'll be emptying our pockets next year because of this mess while they let the infrastructure needs deteriorate. (Did you know New Jersey produces more solar energy than us?)I've yet to hear anyone in the media ask someone at this enviro-love in how is the government going to save us from this happening again. We all know why that question won't be asked, it's because we know what answer we'll get... "It's all some corporations fault."

These are the kind of murky fluid oversights a reporter can sink his teeth into!Nice to know that while we're all worried to death about keystone's potential dangers, a 24 inch pipe sat right underneath us like a ticking timebomb!Let's all drive to the sunken gardens and listen to the politicians tell us we need more government control!

Boy there's that word again "Republicans"! This time it's being used to describe someone standing in the way of liberal progressive reform.Anyone viewed the Drudge page today....There's McConnell, a self described party leader.... Patting Obama on the back, looking like a 100 year old Pee-Wee Herman watching porn!

Santa Barbara is of course the county seat of power. It's apparent that those running for council seats, odd years or not, are looking to climb the ladder of political power. While doing so, they'll gladly use the power they grab to meddle in other candidates campaigns... Which means it doesn't matter what year we have the election in, the powers that be are going to muck it up.So why allow them to continue this meddling odd year here and even year there? Why should we allow our elected officials the ability to be on a constant campaign when they should be focusing on public service? That's all your doing. Giving every politician a chance to remain on a campaign trail to higher power. Your also giving the media a chance to rake in more money. Greed runs the show! (But as a former radio announcer and Indy contributor, you already knew that.)

"That’s because Plains All American took Santa Barbara County to court and won...." Well let's blame the judge then not the pipeline!Look how useless the many tax paid departmental acronyms were. (Is there anyone who isn't named in this unbelievable "oversight"?)Yet "flying blind" sure seems to fly with our liberal environmentalist government worried about blaming others for creating this oily mess!Does anyone else notice every headline these days seems to implicate everyone except the people paid to make sure this doesn't happen?Where's Obama? Preaching how he's going to save the world from global warming with his vision of a military-industrial complex?

Whhhhaaaaaat...... I had no idea the public sector can't handle money!

What's $1,800,000? Two beds in the new jail? A fully loaded bearcat with a three and a half year maintenance plan...Supplying 1 out of every five deputies with a shiny new M102grenade launcher?Priorities people! Get your head on straight or the terrorists have won!
