  • "on the Values thought, while there is a segment that has a beef with sexual preference, there are those of us who see much more concerning writing on the wall. Even if you roll back Islam and gay marriage, this society is still a full train wreck. Maybe an oil trail at that. Even the fashionable darlings of the world such as Norway and Singapore look at us as how not to live. But there once was a time when Europes values were perceived much like we see the current United States. In other words those values you shrug off run deeper than you might wish to believe. Your being born in this country is likely a result of one or more of your direct ancestors either fleeing to worship, or refusing to worship as Europes aristocracy asked. Those values matter."

  • "jacksprat, you have that list down pretty well... "Let’s follow the Spanish Inquisition model. Very efficient…not democratic but efficient" Are you by any chance leaking your new district's candidates priorities and their proposed GSP management structure? It all kind of makes sense now..."

  • "jacksprat please calm down! You are about to blow a gasket! Take big sip of Fiji Water or maybe even some wonderful POM, I'm sure you PRAAGS guys have a cellar full. Yes we do love judges who agree with us, especially this one who follows the law! When the basin is adjudicated and in back in balance, everything is going to be all right. You'll see!"

  • "Such logic, such eloquence, such empathy and such ability to persuade and influence people, “Okay you aluminum chapeau wearers, bring it on?” This is a wonderful example of a stump speech from a pro-district supporter and a preview of the kind of management the new district will have if passed. Okay you aluminum chapeau wearers, Vote NO and run for your lives, PRAAGS is coming!"

  • "I think Wallace is headed to prison. The scope and quality of Knudson's analysis and report is what's going to take him there. This isn't Knudson's first BBQ. Wallace appears to be seriously out of his depth on this one. I hope one of the three agencies digs even further and really gives this problem the enema it so deserves."

  • "I can tell you what happens when Diablo closes; this county goes back to being a broke dick cow county. The schools will have less money, the roads will deteriorate with inadequate maintenance, services will be cut, layoffs will occur periodically. Even deputies and firemen will be pink slipped, just like they were in the late 70's BEFORE PGE built the plant.. Big fancy houses, tourism and wineries will not keep this county afloat.."

  • "On Feb. 4, the staff at the sanitation district sent a redacted copy of Knudson’s report the the FBI, the San Luis Obispo District Attorney and the Attorney General, come again....... Was it the Board members or the District staff, which mean who exactly? and why a redacted copy of a report when I suspect the Board members or Wallace removed every bit of first hand accounts by employees and/or wording verifying Knudsens findings? If there protecting District employees fine, just leave out names, but if you gonna remove pertinent facts and evidence what the hell is the point of spending money on an investigation? Is this the beginning of another circle jerk of wasted time and effort tellig us how Wallace farts butterflies? I call bullshit on the Board members if this was their doing."

  • "There are hundreds of corporations and LLCs that own land in the Paso Basin. I think we should start to make a list. We can all vote which ones we think are "good" and which are "evil." What's the criteria; how long have they been here? How many acres? Do they have the State pipeline running across their land? Grapes? Can't have that. Alfalfa? Too much water. Carrots? Good...but organic no! Too San Francisco. Let's follow the Spanish Inquisition model. Very efficient...not democratic but efficient."

  • "...a decade from now. What happens until then? Adjudicators are hoping for chaos so they can keep pumping like nothing is wrong. Thanks for that neighbor. We love judges that agree with us. Wonder what you will think if the one in Santa Clara doesn't give you your quiet title? Never lost you say? Think again."

  • "Dig hole in sand, insert head, cover. You will be taxed and your well will be regulated by the State, County or district. Do nothing and here comes the boogeyman. No one will come on your property. They will find their way on your tax bill and put a fee on it. Don't pay it. Here comes the lien as you are sitting by your gate,,,waiting.."

  • "I also heard the water district will cause cancer and STDs. Why don't you people get up from your computers in the basement, take off your tin foil hats, get dressed and come to the public meetings where you can meet and talk with the people who will represent you on the district board. Corporate control my behind. It.Can't. Happen. Resnick does not live here. He and Linda can only vote for 2 of the nine board members.Hearst and Peck can cancel out his votes 10 fold but you never mention them. Okay you aluminum chapeau wearers, bring it on."

  • "Yes yes yes, it so irresponsible to plan for a potential event; Senator Monning isn't saying necessarily that Diablo needs to close, he is trying to see what will happen if it does, possibly sooner than later. Planning on what to do with having a smaller revenue stream is somehow "tax and spend"?"

  • "I was surprised that during last nights Arroyo Grande city council meeting no one asked the council to send a letter to the SSLOCSD asking them to confirm that their district staff has indeed sent everything to the parties the board directed them to do so, hey but at least Starbucks can start selling beer and wine, at least our priorities are inline."

  • "You describe exactly why I left state employment to start my own business 20 years ago. Governor Wilson had attempted to implement pay for performance but the union squashed it. That was the end for me. Some state employees were hard workers, many would come to work and put their heads down on their desks from 8-4 and then "work" 2 hours overtime. Hang in there. A lot worse things than teaching college in year round 75 degree weather."
