  • "Re No news stories about dust in Monterey or Vandenberg: That’s because the air folks for those places were not so dumb as to put air monitoring equipment downwind of sand dunes. Re Vegetation: There is more vegetation in the dunes now than there ever was. ‘ Re Decades: What damage?! You’re going to believe whatever a prof from Ontario Canada will tell you about your own backyard? See my note above about vegetation. And welcome to the area. Let me guess, you’ve been here less than five years."

  • "This is how you protect a city. To those who are critical of gun owners, please don’t be ignorant. Just because someone owns a gun or brings it for self defense doesn’t mean they are so irresponsible that they would wildly shoot into crowds. That thought is just ignorant. Learn more about gun ownership, go to a shooting range, make some new friends and then comment on guns. The statistics don’t hold up the fear."

  • "If there were no off-roaders, would there be more vegetation that would sequester the dunes dust and sand? Los Osos and San Luis Obispo don't have this dust problem. there are no news stories about dust problems in Monterey or Vandenberg Village either. No off-roaders, lots of vegetation on the dunes and no news reports of above normal dust being deposited. 2 months of closure doesn't fix decades of damage."

  • "When I read your comment it sounds like you’re ready to stand off against protesters/rioters in your town. But after reading it a few times it sounds a lot like the motivation for all this unrest in the first place. People of color aren’t being protected by the police and now they want “take their fate in their own hands – a proud tradition of this nation.” It’s all such madness. We’re so much more similar than we are different despite what we’re constantly being told."

  • "No, not a protest my friend, but rioting and looting, with the intent of causing mayhem. Just call it what it is. Well done. Here was a golden opportunity to bring about real change for the better in our criminal justice system but antifa and the hate America far left just squandered it. Nice going. Mr Floyd’s family said as much. “Rioting is self destructive..., it is the language of the unheard” MLK"

  • "If police and National Guard will protect the community and businesses, absolutely! However, what happened in SLO and elsewhere shows they cannot or do not want to protect. If government cannot protect, people tend to take their fate in their own hands - a proud tradition of this nation."

  • "Say! How's that Corona Virus coming along? What's that? Huh? I really hope more people can wake up and come out of the fog. The lunatics will double-down, of course, because they are lunatics. I pray there are enough sane, level heads who do not digest the propaganda 24-7 and react like fools (as we've been seeing). One well-planted agitator, the useful idiots will then take it from there. They've been conditioned their whole lives, it seems."

  • "Protect Paso stay home with your guns. The police and National Guard are trained. You might be a liability not an asset. BTW this is not an open carry state. Without a permit, shouldn't take a gun off your own property. Would be afraid of the legal consequences. Would be interested to know who and where outside folks are from. But with COVID, should stay home."

  • "It look's like I was right with my above comment early yesterday afternoon. The so called peaceful protester's couldn't handle the right they hand. They went on to abuse it and hurt their cause. The events that unfolded later are not in line with any peaceful protest. They endangered lives, and I know for a fact the they brought fear to a family I know who was caught on the freeway closure. That is unacceptable if you seeking for constructive charge. That is not the goal of the radical fringe that's now coming out. It might be time to start taking a stance as individuals and start to protect our towns and businesses if this gets more out of hand. Peaceful protest alright, but destruction property and terror of people is not. There is nothing wrong with protecting your family and property. We have that right."

  • "Obama: "Let's not excuse violence, or rationalize it, or participate in it. If we want our criminal justice system, and American society at large, to operate on a higher ethical code, then we have to model that code ourselves." Sharpton: "I absolutely condemn any violence. Don't use George Floyd for anything other than justice for George Floyd." Waters: "I am requesting those individuals and groups planning a counter-protest to not be baited into confronting the Oath Keepers [a white supremacist group] with any demonstrations in opposition. Such an occurrence would only exacerbate tensions and increase the potential for conflict." You are right about King though. We don't have any leaders like that anymore."

  • "Would it help if the saying was appended to help close the logic gap most seem to take issue with here. Black Lives Matter.....just as much as everyone else's. It is sad that society needs to be reminded of this fact, but it does. If All Lives (really) Matter (equally) as you insist; there would not be a need for such protests as these incidents would not be occurring."
