  • "DPINC Some of the "comments" here not only defy logic, but show just how lacking in not only sympathy (perhaps it is the Hispanic name) or even common sense resides in your posting. Seriously, "Self stranding"? TAKE ANOTHER LOOK AT THE CAR. Perhaps you did not read all the way to the paragraph that detailed the most severe of her injuries. She had a damn BRAIN HEMMORAGE. FOUR FRACTURED RIBS, FRACTURE OF BOTH COLLAR BONES, COLLAPSED LUNG, RUPTURED BLOOD VESSELS IN BOTH EYES, INTENSE BURNS ON HANDS, FEET AND FACE. You would expect her to just hike up a steep cliff in that condition? And before you let me know how off base you think I am, I have an EMT credential, so save your time. Further more, I suggest you head on up to Big Sur (anywhere up there, the highway is open now), go down a steep cliff to the beach and see how much cell phone reception you get. If her phone even survived the crash and having the car fill with water. Dude, the holes are not in her story. SERIOUSLY. Given her condition, she did remarkably well. Sweethome is right, she should not have swerved in the first place, but given that, the fact that she survived a 250 ft. drop and lived to tell is remarkable in itself."

  • "The persimmon pinhead's political career took off when he jumped on the 100% racist bandwagon of the Birth Ceftificate swill that the Reich wing maggots came up with. If you support Rump and voted for him, that makes you a supporter of a racist, misogynist filthy piece of crap. That kind of mentality tends to produce heinous behavior in public. The photo of the Rump sign makes clear where the misguided young man has gone wrong."

  • "I'm glad that no one appears to have been seriously injured. Rotor wash can really ruin your day. Had this been a Chinook's rotor wash, it could have been a lot worse. Someone will have to answer for why this happened. Either the tent was set up improperly, the aircraft was too close to the tent, or both, but someone messed up."

  • "Keith presents such a sound voice - one borne out of experience and 'in the trenches' with SLO city government that I can only hope people wake up and get out and cast their vote for him. There's still an opportunity to reverse the disastrous course this current council has been taking. Keith, thanks for stepping up to this outsized task. I have renewed hope!"

  • "$4million to $5million for the General Fund. Well close to 75% of the General Fund goes towards salaries, benefits, retirements and unfunded liabilities. So it's very easy to see where the money is going to go. They say it will be for roads, sure if there is anything left after treating themselves. Why are they not going for a super majority vote where 66% approval is required and the funds would be restricted for road repairs only. Pretty easy to understand why they don't want to do that, it certainly would ruin the party. People of Paso Robles would be crazy to pass this. But at the same time you will see SLOCOG and the tourist industry pour alot of money into this. They want to have good roads, not for the residents but for their tourists to enjoy."

  • "I totally agree with your assessment, 1smart. he should not face legal action for his exercising Freedom of Speech, but may very well bear "other" consequences based on Freedom of Association. I only wish your very correct and logical standard was applied equally, in all circumstances. There is definitely a double standard when it comes to speech."

  • "From what I’ve read, she used a radiator hose to collect fresh water. She made a good decision as far as surviving. The number one survival rule: STAY WITH THE VEHICLE! The vehicle is a bigger target than a person (when someone looking for a missing person). Smart idea as opposed to trying to hike up the cliffs; especially since she was injured. But as a former licensed driving trainer, NEVER SWERVE TO AVOID ANIMALS! Use the brakes instead. Many drivers have died just because of swerving. I hope she recovers quickly...Get well soon."

  • "Because you can claim you are feel "threatened" or "unsafe" by someones presence or speech. That's all it takes Since universities are entrusted with young vulnerable women who are on their own for the first time (and get huge amounts of money for it) they are very extremely sensitive to this stuff. When a young college woman speaks out, they listen. Without any action, they will be seen as ignoring the issue and staff will soon face protesters of their own."

  • "Calling a person a derogatory slur directly to their face is a personal attack. Saying F Trump is political opinion directed at the persimmon pinhead. It is not a personal attack. One would think any adult, and that young man who was preparing to go to college, would know the difference. Freedom of speech means that the government can't arrest you for what you say. It does NOT mean the rest of society has to put up with your BS. Words matter. If you can't stand behind your words and take the results of what you have been recorded saying, you may learn a harsh lesson about personal responsibility. An athletic scholarship is a privilege, not a right. When gifted with this kind of privilege, you should behave yourself in public. If you don't, suck it up and take responsibility for your actions and learn from them."

  • "1. Show up at a counter-protest. Rile them up and try to get a reaction (see: "bird-dogging"). The angrier the better 2. Take video of people at a Trump rally. Identify whoever you can. Social media activists can help (see: #YesYoureRacist) 3. Contact the workplaces, communities, and schools of anyone and try to get them fired, dis-enrolled, shunned, etc. (See: Bronson Harmon)"

  • "Dear Stoners, As a person who believes in the democratic process, I can accept that voter initiative was used to implement the decriminalization of marijuana, and now it is readily available from retail outlets. Please do not drive stoned! The roads are whacky enough, and cars are dangerous, so please, please do us all a favor and refrain from smoking the reefer while you are driving. As we respect the voters, I hope you people respect DMV driving regulations. Thanks, Mr. George Bailey"

  • "Folks, I support Mr. Keith Gurnee! Not only is Keith Gurnee an outstanding citizen capable of pulling our city together, it would also remove the incumbent from doing further damage to our beloved San Luis Obispo. Mr. Gurnee will govern with a steady hand, including citizen input and make informed decisions for the best interests of all residents. His prior experience on the council, and his significant experience in public service will prove invaluable in helping to get our city government back on track. As it is now, the city council has an ideologically liberal bias, and it colors every single decision they make. Mrs. Harmon ran for office on a promise to listen to the taxpaying residents, but she has marshaled her leftist city council mates to vote themselves pay raises, embrace ‘sanctuary city’ designation, order the police department to go easy on criminals, and they have refused to deal with the city worker pension crisis in a timely fashion. Voters need to understand that we need to change this entire council. As bad as Heidi harmon has been, she has been assisted by Dan Reviore, Carlyn Christianson, Andy Pease and Aaron Gomez AND THEY ALL NEED TO GO. Lastly, unlike the mayor and her fellow council members, Keith Gurney would not accept campaign cash from out-of-town developers. If you object to all of the huge new buildings which will ruin the downtown district for years, VOTE FOR A NEW CITY COUNCIL not tied to the corruption of dirty campaign donations. Vote Keith Gurney for SLO Mayor in November!"
