Or we could take a less dramatic approach and work on implementing a license to have children and/or mandatory birth control (hopefully there will be a male equivalent of the Depo-Provera shot soon) for welfare participants. Any system that ultimately "awards" people with too many financial dependents when they have more children is broken.

Dave, you're totally right. We have way too many people living in a Mediterranean climate artificially kept alive with this water.

A not guilty declaration at this point is not saying he's innocent and didn't commit the crimes, it's simply because the defense does not 100% agree with the charges as they sit. If he truely wants to take responsibilty, sitting in a jail cell for the rest of his life is less constructive than doing something like outreach against DUI etc. at some point down the road.
On Morua Pleads Not Guilty to Murder, DUI Charges

as a UC grad, I'm proud of this endevor. I think the UC should invest as much as possible in scientific research. I believe over time if UC schools become "dorky nerd schools" (i.e. MIT, etc.) there will be less attraction for students more interested in gang rape than gang statistics.

Yes, you are completely incorrect in what the Bren School does and what "green building" (I assume you mean LEED certified) actually means.

I'm sure most of the alleged gangsters would qualify for a free education under the DREAM Act. but that would require a desire to do something constructive.

The groups mentioned have absolutely no power in the sense of enforcement; they simply challenge legality under CEQA on state and private land (in CA), and NEPA on federal land.

GPS technology is passive, i.e. it does not send a signal of your location, it simply compares precise time stamps sent from satellites to triangulate your location. My idea would be to have your on-board computer equipped with simple linear locations of off-ramps so if you pass through one the wrong way you're car would know you are about to enter a freeway going the wrong way. If you have ever used a cell phone to find something near you with a mapping application then you have already used this exact same concept.
On Wrong Way 101 Driver Dead in Carpinteria

It is more than likely cheaper for the state to deal with the 0-5 car accidents caused by wrong way drivers in SB county each year then install and maintain wrong way blades at every off ramp indefinitely. In the future of autonomous vehicles, or even having every registered vehicle installed with GPS, we could eliminate many of these accidents by creating "geo fences", i.e. geographic boundaries, that in this case once breached, would tell the car to cut power to the engine.
