  • "YES indeedy! All that genocide, matricide, infanticide, slavery, and blatant page by bloody page slaughter and mayhem from the loving Mesopotamiam myth man is just what we need to solve 21st century problems. You and the indoctrinated automatoms like you are one of the principal reasons that more people have been killed, more civilizations destroyed and more clasiical learning and future beneficial research abandoned ergo leading to increased stupidity of the future electorate. I can do no better than our second President: the social science will never be much improved untill the People unanimously know and Consider themselvs as the fountain of Power and untill they shall know how to manage it Wisely and honestly. reformation must begin with the \Body of the/ People which can be done only, to affect, in their Educations. the Whole People must take \upon/ themselvs the Education of the Whole People and must be willing to bear the expences of it. there should not be a district of one Mile square without a school in it, not founded by a Charitable individual but maintained at the expence of the People themselv[s] they must be taught to reverence themselvs instead of adoreing their servants their Generals Admirals Bishops and Statesmen — Instead of Admiring so extravegantly a Prince of Orange, we Should admire the Botavian Nation which produced him. Instead of Adoring a Washington, Mankind should applaud the Nation which Educated him. If Thebes owes its Liberty and Glory to Epaminandas, She will loose both when he dies, and it would have been as well if she had never enjoyed a taste for either: but if the Knowledge the Principles the Virtues and Capacities of the Theban Nation produced an Epaminandas, her Liberties and Glory will remain when he is no more: and if an analogous system of Education is Established and Enjoyed by the Whole Nation, it will produce a succession of Epaminandas’s, the Human Mind naturally exerts itself to form its Character according to the Ideas of those about it. ♦ Letter from John Adams to John Jebb, September 10, 1785, from Grosvenor Square, London"

  • "The City is right in being cautious about setting a new precedent to suit one individual. In allowing an exception to their tree- removal regulation to address that resident's allergies, It will set precedent for all residents' requests for the exception to the regulation and may ultimately lead to making a case for other health issues of its residents being the responsibility of the city. Each person's immunity system is different. A person's response to allergens is specific for each person. A person with allergies can seek treatment and/or can find a residence which better suits their allergy problem. It is not the responsibility of the city to participate in the treatment of a resident's allergy problem by granting them an exception to a city regulation. The regulations were developed as a measure to be applied to all residents. There are many city regulations that apply to all residents. Such regulations are put in place for a reason, usually to advance the residents' best interests. Some of the regulations apply to private property, such as the requirement for building permits, disposal of solid waste, and regulations to control sewers and septic systems. If the city allows special-case exclusions for regulations applying to all residents, especially because someone has a common malady like allergic response to pollen, certainly it will set precedent for anyone who wants to avoid the regulation regarding removal of trees on private property by claiming they are allergic to the tree they want removed. So if the city decides to open the door for people applying to remove trees on their property, they should be prepared for many challenges of the regulation....and it won't be just for oak pollen allergies. About 35 percent of Americans have allergies to pollen of some sort. California oak pollen is not one of the bad pollen. So if the city grants an exclusion for one oak tree, since so many plants and trees produce pollen, there is a wide range of pollen that can be claimed as a reason for allowing a resident to remove a tree on their property."

  • "The Cambria clique significantly increases water rates so out of town developers and attorneys can profit and the local have to suffer. The CCSD, PROS and Friends of Fiscalini Ranch kill healthy habitat and then want to project they are looking out for the community. THEY ARE NOT. The CCSD Board MUST be replaced. They do not represent locals."

  • "SO where’s the missing 80 minutes from the surveillance tapes? "Chief Steve Annibali explained the missing segments as issues with the wireless feed, and then provided complete video copies taken from the hard drive inside the Blue Watch camera unit, which included the previously missing segments." So, I ask again, where are these tapes? Why weren’t they provided under the original request?"

  • "Instead they were rewarded with authorizing 14,000 pages of regulations (Dodd-Frank), a confusing mess of which only 20% has been implemented to date, but which of course neglected to address Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, which were at the epicenter of the mortgage crisis."

  • "Underground geological forms in our area, including underground water sources, are complex. The author of the article is a certified hydrogeologist. If he says there is a well that does have a good amount of water in it, I'll take his word for it. Also, note that just one well was mentioned - not "the wells". Everyone knows that many wells in Cambria are going dry. That does not mean they all are. Looks like the developer-controlled old boy/old girl network is at it again - attacking anyone who reveals information that challenges their agenda."
