spacey, Halliburton gets its money from the government.
The great thing about a private police force is that nobody would be forced to pay for it. If they acted unfairly, people could choose not to support them.

If the large 6-8 offramp roundabout is infeasible due to the proximity of the businesses, two smaller round-abouts at each intersection could also work.
On Which intersection has become intolerable?

I voted Fairview / 101 / Calle Real and would have done the same before construction on the onramp started.
Those two intersections (101/Fairview and Fairview/Calle Real) would be perfect places to have a large around-about with 6 offramps (or 8 if you include ones for the Shell and Fairview car wash) Not only would it save each person who goes through that area about 3+ minutes of their life every time, it would be great to showcase the efficiency and sustainability of round-abouts.

The Indy's comment section is afflicted with left-wing state worshiping religious fanatics who think the answer to everything is to create a new government program or department.
I saw an article earlier today that was the perfect analogy of statism-
An old woman drove her car into a drainage ditch in El Paso, Texas. A few men tried to go in and help her out, they could see her moving in her car. An officer yelled at them and told them if they attempted to rescue her they would be arrested, and finally the men backed down. In the mean time, "There were ambulances, there was the Fire Department, helicopters, airplanes, I said 'Oh, my God, they're not doing anything about it,' so she passed away," said the witness.
Yep, that's right, to a statist, citizens are a lower form of being who cannot think or act on their own and must conform to all government regulatory standards or else face execution by law enforcement for non-compliance.
The Constitutional Republic our founders setup was designed to protect people's rights, not limit them. It was intended to be a system that would help protect people from violence, coercion, theft and property rights disputes. Now the state has become the bringer of violence, coercion and theft of property.
I'm all for environmental protections, I believe it is a property rights issue (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Free-mar... )
As for climate change, there has been a global warming "pause" for the last 19+ years. Let's "pause" and think about that for a moment before jumping off the deep end. Is CO2 really "toxic" when we can increase CO2 levels and watch plants and trees thrive (which turn CO2 into O)? Are there other toxic chemicals that environmentalists are ignoring in order to focus on non-toxic CO2 emissions? Why is the establishment and the news media (besides the Fox trolls) so adamant about man made global warming, including MSNBC which is owned by GE? Why do the large industrial and energy corporations support cap and trade and run an establishment which supports man made global warming, are they using it as an excuse to further limit the rights of individuals so they can continue to supply energy from a monopoly position? Are they pulling a fast one on environmentalists who are more concerned about CO2 emissions than actual toxins that are being released into the environment?
Would you really trust congress to pass "banking regulations" when pretty much all of the politicians are bought off by Goldman Sachs? Think about it.

Maybe Chevron wants Measure P to pass and they know that by funneling money into the No on P campaign it will get more people to vote for it.

Jarvis, I actually support the local tourist industry - but I'm still glad they are out there testing the water (not harassing) near cruise ships. Cruise ships don't have a stellar record when it comes to dumping in the ocean and since I go in the ocean regularly and don't trust the EPA at all I would prefer a local agency goes and tests - in fact, I would be willing to personally help fund the effort if I was given the option to do so, along with any tax reductions that currently go toward the organization. In fact, I'd prefer that all government services worked in that fashion.
