>BeachFan: me thinks Salud gets too many pieces of silver from throughout the county to frustrate everyone but himself. He wants to go to Sacramento and/or DC, where the frustration is a bit more cloudy, and personally blameless. Where there are lifetime capps on discontent. Let him. It's legislative LegoLand.

On Supervisors' Meeting “Hijacked” by Mental Health Advocates

Posted on March 17 at 5:30 p.m.

Gotta go to Paul Simon's "The Boxer"…"a man hears what he wants to hear and disregards the rest." Or perhaps better paraphrased here, "…and censors all the rest."

And a note for anyone hurling malicious monikers at other commenters: think very carefully about using the word "intellectual" or "anti-intellectual" in your comments.

It's a dead giveaway.

(P.S. – for those wishing to quibble with "a 'man' hears", it is genderless. No pun intended.)

Not to worry, Bill. The winter of their discontent was made glorious summer, by "summer", who noted that "the boy lives with his father? In & out of jail, crackhead... That's not any better for him."

It's good to have that anecdotal information to prove that the x-chromes are always right. There's always a bad guy there, somewhere. I'm surprised men are even allowed to be sperm donors.

On Woman Sentenced to Probation for DUI Crash That Broke Son's Neck

As long as the burial in AG land has the appropriate EIR and approval from the neighborhoods established on AG land. I think it is covered in Obamacare, on page 2468, that residential use of AG land is granted Nature Conservancy taxpayer expense.

And why not?

Might think about moving Thomas Paine's remains there as well.

Congratulations and thanks to Mitchell and Amy and the entire Perez family for helping to keep 'culinary travelers' coming to Santa Barbara and for giving those of us who live here "icing on the cake."

>Andrea: sorry for the late response...of course the votes were purchased - follow the trail of money of the 40 state attorneys general who "brought this to the attention" of Congress. The WASHINGTON POST reported information such as the following obtained from the Federal Election Commission: $45,000 to the campaign account of Rep. John Conyers, Jr. (D-Mich) who chairs the committee considering the bill; $300,000 from the beer wholesalers to the 100 plus House members who agreed to co-sponsor the bill.; $2,500 to Rep. Mike Quigley (D-Ill) three days before the bill was introduced; $8,000 to Rep. Pete Olson (R-Texas), including $2,500 after pledging his support. Since January 1, according to the POST, campaign contributions on this issue to both Chambers exceeded $900,000.

Many House members supporting the bill, as were many state attorneys-general, were snookered into believing the bill would help prevent underage drinking. Nothing could be further from the truth. They have also been snookered into believing that HR 5034 would not affect winery rights to ship directly to their consumers. The bill would allow states to discriminate between in-state and out-of-state wineries in establishing shipping regulations. It would also make it all but impossible for legal actions to be taken against state regulations, actually overriding both the Commerce Clause governing interstate commerce and the 2005 Supreme Court Decision (Granholm v Heald) upholding the Commerce Clause concerning direct shipping. Write a letter to Lois and Elton.
>binky: are you a big fan of J.J Rousseau? Your anti-Libertarian comment shows a complete lack of understanding of religion, government, and, Libertarianism. Try reading Frederic Bastiat.
>Bill: let's stick with brother for now.

Thank you, Bill. For once, you and I are united. How about that? There's a libertarian hiding deep inside you, son.

Oh, and Bill, the MADD events to which I referred were in the 'mid to late '80s. Do ask Mr. Silas Miers exactly what MADD's policy was in Santa Barbara between 1985 and 1988, if he knows. I have had nothing to do with them since. Nor has MADD's founder Candy Lightner. Since you seem to be fond of links, here's one for you:

Usted hace mucho ruido, Bill. Un tambor vacío es el más fuerte.
