One other difference between Hamas and Israel is that Israel uses missiles to protect it's civilians. Hamas uses civilians to protect their missiles.

Much of the reason there have been so many Palestinian civilian casualties is that Hamas uses civilians as shields for it's fighters and it's equipment.

What about when a bicyclist hits a pedestrian?

And the price of gas in Germany is........

$5.57 a gallon

No need to say anything else in response to Tabatha's voluminous diatribe.

We have all profited as a country from our newfound energy independence as well as lower energy prices. Proponents of Measure P have been using conjecture instead of facts to promote their agenda. It is billed as an "anti-fracking" bill when we don't do any fracking in the county.

He should have written you that ticket. You'd certainly wish the same on someone in a car that did what you did.

It's not like we don't have liberal council members that support the interests of hispanic voters. I don't see how having district elections will change the composition of the council much if at all. I do see the opportunity for corrupt politicians to put 6 "ribbons of shame" throughout the city in order to achieve a political objective. District elections open up a whole new can of worms. Although the city is 38% Latino, I would bet the percentage of Latino voters is somewhat lower.

Six figures? Try seven. Sure Loon, do you think SB's living wage ordinance and union pandering would allow a roundabout to be built for $20K?

And gosh, at least 30% of the time I see people stop when there is no need. I use the one at Los Carneros often, and people are always clogging that one up with their inept driving.

Loon, I think the people would be more stressed because of the increased taxes they have to pay for those stupid roundabouts.

Not that roundabouts function badly, but when people don't know how to drive through them, (which is often the case) it actually slows traffic down.

I wouldn't even have a problem with some being taxes a little more if our government spent less and just paid down the debt. We have endless spending on defense, entitlements and just plain waste. But we all know that will never happen. Tax people more, the government will spend more.
