Well, gentlemen, and I use that word loosely, there IS such a thing called "animal cruelty" and the way the steer in the photo is being roped, jerked and brutally thrown to the ground is just that. Violent sports and violent men are not attractive anymore and should not be role models for our children. Get a clue.

As a woman and a Progressive Democrat, I am so happy that Sharon Rose won this seat on the Goleta Sanitary District Board. She is a brilliant lady! As a SB Democratic Central Committee member, I voted to endorse Sharon after she spoke at our meeting in October. She did get our endorsement! This will make her the FIRST woman to hold a seat on this board. Having known her and worked with her for many years, I know that Sharon will do a great job. Congratulations, Sharon, for running a good, honest, grassroots campaign and winning!!!!

We are two people who participated in shutting this down. It is time that we think ahead and care more about our planet and its wildlife than we do about these devastating tests that so adversely affects our whales, dolphins and other sea mammals. California does not need nuclear power, so we are hoping that we continue our quest for renewable and clean energy.

This woman and her great self esteem seminar helped save my life when I was going through my divorce from a cheating husband 25 years ago. She will be missed. I will never forget her.

This is exactly why we need Public Campaign financing reform! There have been so many ugly lies told about Congresswoman Capps. Maldonado would be another Republican obstructionist in Congress that we do NOT need!It is time to overturn Citizens United and get all this money out of our political system. The PEOPLE are the ones who should decide who will represent them, not these rich outside interest Super PACs and Corporations, who are only interested in profit.

Well, I for one made up my mind not to shop at Whole Foods when I read an ugly article by its CEO John Mackey that blasted Universal Single-Payer Health Care. As so many big bucks CEOs, he does not care about the millions of uninsured people, many women and children, who are suffering for lack of health care access in California! Thanks, East Beach for linking to this article.

Plastic bags are NOT good for our marine life. Hasn't anybody actually watched that Channel Keepers film that shows the degraded plastic dump in the Pacific Ocean now larger than the state of Texas? Doesn't anyone care that this crap is ingested by marine life from albatross birds to sea turtles and dolphins that end up dying from a lack nutrition because they are so full of plastic debris, which they mistake for seaweed/food?????Why are people so tragically ignorant? LET'S GET OVER IT AND BAN THESE HIGH POLLUTIN' KILLER BAGS!!!!!

TAXES ARE INVESTMENTS IN A CIVILIZED SOCIETY. The more money you make, the more advantage you have taken of that society's benefits. Simply put, the richest Californians need to pay their progressive FAIR share for our state to survive and for its people to thrive--ALL its people..When a state spends more money on prisons than it does on public education and programs of social uplift, we are headed towards economic and moral death! (paraphrasing MLK Jr.) We are desperately in need of revenue to meet the needs of our civilized society across this great state. Thank god there are more Progressive Democrats in California than there are Right Wing "NO NEW TAXES" voters!

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? Those school children who showed up to defend protecting our ocean and marine life are smarter than the author of this post and his supporters by eons! Using petroleum based plastic bags, many of which end up degrading in our ocean to become poisonous food for innocent marine life is simply just NOT ACCEPTABLE. I have been taking my reusable bags to the store for years. It is easy and second nature to me now. How lazy and irresponsible can you be? Watch the video on what is happening out in the Pacific Ocean and then buy a few re-usable bags and shut up.
