"wallymoon"- Law enforcement went to his residence, spoke with him & he displayed no signs of being mentally incompetent (You were not there, at the time of the call, so, do not judge). They did all that they could do. Law enforcement in Santa Barbara County did as they were required to do, i.e.: "check his welfare". He appeared to be able to care for himself and not be a danger/threat to himself or others at that time. "If" they (law enforcement) had decided to "violate" his Constitutional Rights & detain him for what he "allegedly" said, to his family members, they (law enforcement) would have been crucified, by you & your kind, for over reacting. Basically what I'm getting at is this: No matter what law enforcement did/does, it is "WRONG" in your book and is all their fault.

It was most likely, Peter Adam. If so, or whomever it was, good for them. Tax, Tax, Tax, seems to be the preferred method for our county supervisors, and others, to know how to generate money around here. Why punish those travelers, tourists, and so forth, for choosing to come to SB County, by charging them not the "average" tax of 12%, but .5% more. It does not seem like much of an incentive to vacation in our area. There will come a time when this "tax" well runs dry. Why not lower the tax, to gather folks to travel here, and exploit some of SB County's other resources (Gas & Oil come to mind) to gather more funds?
On Hotel Bed Tax Heading to Ballot

K_V: I think you're onto something. However, I think Cyberdyne Systems, aka Skynet, may also play a role in the genetic makeup of these "self breeding" plants. I'll check with Miles Dyson and get back to you.
John_Adams: I'm not sure I said, or insinuated, anything about a "Gateway theory" as it relates to my previous post. I believe any type of narcotic, prescrition or otherwise, can be considered a "gateway" drug. Just as alcohol can be someone's first step into a possible deep abyss. Anyhow, I was just throwing my 2 cents out there regarding "stuff" and "trash". From your snarky reply, you may want to consult with Maverick before landing your plane on the carrier. You seem a little spooked......
K_V, my reply....too much?
On Montecito Marijuana Groves Eradicated
Posted on July 16 at 3:17 p.m.
14noscams: I'm going to have to, politely, disagree with you on your belief that the growers would have removed their "stuff" once they completed their growing operation. Considering they are already conducting an illegal act (growing marijuana) and they are going to be furthering that act (selling said marijuana). I think one could believe their "stuff" would most likely be left behind and become........wait for it, "trash". Plus, I have never read, seen, or heard of illegal, back country, marijuana growers being the leaders of the enviornmental movement to clean up our forests.
K_V: As far as the grow being "Montecito kids". It depends on how far the grow was away from the main trail. If it required any effort at all to get to, I'm going to say it was, most likely, our friends from another country...... Those Darn Canucks!

Tyler,I too congratulate you on your purchase of a firearm (Glock 17). It's nice to see someone from a "progressive" news outlet make the attempt to understand/gain knowledge about something that has been labeled "evil" by so many.....I hate to use the term, "ignorant" people.
While you chose "Option C" in your effort to confront the person knocking on your, and then, your neighbor's door. I believe "Option A" was the best option. This is because you could: Make your announcement (calling law enforcement), from behind protection (secured/locked front door), and protect yourself (legally) with your Louisville Slugger, (should this person make a forced entry into your residence and you feel your life was in danger).... Jump ahead to after you purchased your firearm. If the same event had occurred, you could protect yourself with your firearm. That is if the person made his way into your residence and you feared for the safety of yourself and/or anyone else inside.
I highly recommend you follow the advise of TyreByter, at least as far as points #1,2,&,4 go.
I must say, I disagree with your comment:
"Nevertheless, I like having it. It’s tough to articulate exactly why, especially because I never want to do with it what it’s designed to do: shoot human beings".
Guns are not "designed" to shoot human beings anymore than cars are designed to hit people. A lot more paper/steel targets and roadways come into contact with firearms and cars,respectively, than people.
I could go on and on. However, I'm to anxious to hear from "Spiritwalker" to go further. Should you choice to learn more about firearms and wish to go shooting sometime, please let me know. I'll make sure you have a good time and, I'll supply the ammunition.
One last thing, if you are going to keep your firearm as you say, "unloaded in a locked case next to my linens". May I recommend, that you keep a loaded magazine.... That's a "clip" for all you experts, next to the firearm. That way, all you have to do is insert the magazine into the firearm & "charge/rack it" prior to discharging it.... Should it be necessary.
Man, it took me almost an hour to compose this comment to make sure I covered all my points, accurately, and I did not offend the "progressives" our there. It was "Exhausting" to say the least.
On My First Gun

I've come to the conclusion that "spiritwalker" is only posting his/her outrageous comments to incite those of us who have differing opinions. My logic behind this conclusion is because I don't believe anyone can be that nuts and function in society. By the end of 2016, I may change my opinion on that.
Anyhow "spiritwalker", now that I've discovered your true intent. Please keep it up, your posts are quite amusing, even if they are said/written in jest.

Please excuse the one "grammatical" mistake I could find in the review of my initial comment....at this time. Ken, I was referring to your comment on 6-19-13 @2:53, not 6-18-13 @ 2:53.
I normally would not post such a minor typographical error. However (comma) I don't want to give Spiritwalker any frivolous ammunition. "Ammunition" being a negative word, I know.
Spiritwalker- Respectfully, please do me a favor, if you will. Watch this video & give me your opinion. I request your opinion on this man's interview. I will "Totally" respect your comments and will NOT criticise you for your opinion.

You will see/hear understand the meaning behind my previous comments.
All those that read this comment. Please respect what a great man Chris Kyle was and.... "Higher" being, Rest His Soul".
On Another Panga Found on Tajiguas Beach

Wow!... I'm new here to posting. However, I'm a long time Indy reader and SB resident (27 years). Anyhow, I finally found an article & comments worth replying. With that:
Ken, I've read a lot of your posts. While I disagree with you 99.9% of the time. Your comment on 6-18-13 @ 2:53 was ahhh, err.. "Priceless". That was the funniest and most accurate statement I have ever heard. I commend you for your wit. If we should meet on the "comment battlefield", I shall bow to you, as a show of respect, prior to disagreeing with you.
Eckermann- Your comment makes the most sense. But, as they say, "Common sense is not so common."
Priceless- I believe I know you. If so, you are correct in all of your posts, here and at work. However, jeez dude! Don't you realize you'll never be able to get your "common sense" correct points out to these "sheeple". They live in their dream world and will never understand/comprehend the realities of the real world.
Remember, what happens in the rest of the world has no effect on the folks of Santa Barbara. They are superior and better than everyone else.... Until a major disaster/crisis occurs and their "progressive" ideas fail worse than their Messiah president.
Spiritwalker- Hmmm, how do I say this without offending you or having you think I'm the SBSO PIO? This will be difficult, I'm sure. Anyhow, your comment on 6-18-13 @ 12:17 of items purchased by the County of SB. Those are not items to be used by law enforcement. Those sound like fire department items to me. But, that's just common sense talking (see "common sense" comment above).
As far as your conspiracy theory that the SBSO is behind all the panga boats... I refer you to Eckermann's post.
Oh man, I can't help it... I'm beat and tired of trying to be politically correct towards you Spiritwalker..... Your a "Frickin' Nut"!!!
Thanks All for having me and welcoming me to your "Indy Comment World". Keep it up! Whether you agree with my comments or I agree with yours. That's what's great about our country.... for now.
Live Long and Prosper!...... That's the most politically correct send off I could come up with.😜
