I am all for preservation but what about this stretch is natural? Its polluted with agriculture, cattle, HWY 101, rail roads and oil production. Its been planted with non-native plants for so long they're now the dominate species, its overused by people who dont clean up and is polluted by campers, RV's and countless diesel spilling boats. In other words: Its no more pristine or natural in its current state than Malibu or Santa Barbara.
What ever once was, is long gone. Converting various tracts to a park isnt going to remove the massive pollution any more than a couple of private homes... in fact, I would say that private ownership would do more for preservation than allowing the general public to do as they please. Show me a single place where the public goes that isnt trashed and I'll show you a place that is extremely difficult to get to...

realitycheck88 - How many babies have you adopted? How many do you care for? How much money do you give to orphanages? How much time do you donate to child welfare causes?
So instead of preaching your myopic and antiquated (read: stupid) ideals, go out in the real world and do some actual work to aide the millions of children born into the world by parents who were not able or willing to care for them and until you have spent every last penny, every waking hour every ounce of effort, you have no right to tell anyone how or what they can do with their bodies or their lives. People like you suck.
On UCSB Professor Accused of Assaulting Anti-Abortion Activist

thequidnunc - "Firstly, she teaches useless garbage and got into NYU no doubt as a result of Affirmative Action i.e. reverse racism. "
A clear statement of prejudice and racism as I have ever read... assumption and prejudice running rampant in your statement as your aligning her race with her position and beyond... And to throw in the "my wife is Asian?"... Holy crap dude, get a clue! You're about as typical of the old Archie Bunker racist as I've ever encountered...

Wow LaBotany, you're really proving my points better than I ever could.
Thanks for playing. You're really doing a great job proving you're indeed an idiot. I dont have to point it out anymore! Since you remove all doubt... Keep trying though, even a blind squirrel finds a nut every once in a while.

If you want to understand why our country and our world is so screwed up, read the comments on the YouTube video. Nothing could be more telling of the state of stupidity and ignorance than the voices of the masses represented on that page/site.
We're totally screwed as a society with so many uneducated, ignorant, stupid people out there having so many babies.

They freely expressed their views. They were free to do so as per the 1st amendment but they received a backlash to their expression as a result of their use of inflammatory imagery and chosen local. The backlash was from other people, not the university or the Govt. It is not a 1st amendment issue.
The video clearly shows that the professor was not in possession of the sign nor the instigator of the physical assault. One of the girls was the instigator. And so she's in the wrong. Case closed. In CA you cannot impede the movement of another person. The foot, the pushing, all were from the alleged victims who were actually the perpetrators. Interesting.
If you spit gasoline into a fire you'll get burned. These young ladies got burned. Good lesson for two woefully naive and ignorant young girls.

Here's the video. After watching it I can say that these young girls are the ones who are in the wrong here... Not only are they trespassing onto a campus that they're not enrolled or a part of, they actually provoke the whole assault by touching the professor first and foremost. The sign is not even in the professors possession but instead is held by a couple of students. So I dont see it being a case of the professor stealing anything. In fact, she seems rather calm until physically provoked by the two young ladies.
This whole thing is really blown out of proportion. Not only is it not a Free Speech issue, (the University didnt stop these girls, a couple of students did) its a mountain made out of a molehill in order to draw attention to their cause.
Watch the vid. It clears up plenty of misconceptions represented by both sides.
