  • "If ABC, CBS or NBC were reporting on this story, they would have called the above piece "reporting the news as it happens." and you would accept it as it was delivered because you have been conditioned to accept the mainstream mass media reporting as fact. Maybe if the network later determined that it would help boost their ratings, or help bolster the political candidates and cause they support; perhaps they would offer more in-depth follow-up."

  • "The very idea of having a service dog on a leash during a public meeting is absurd. Can you imagine the emotional trauma this canine would endure, possible requiring the service dog to have its own service dog, also not on a leash. And speaking of leashes.. The only leashes required would be used to restrain Linda Austin and Clark D’Souza."

  • "“The Sheriff’s Office would like to take this opportunity to remind community members that the process of extracting oils from cannabis is not only illegal, but it is extremely dangerous,” Ummm, so the Sheriff doesn't even know the laws.. not surprising. There are multiple LEGAL ways to extract oil from cannabis... using a explosive solvent is not one of them... One can use ice water, co2/dry ice, heat & pressure, etc. Only idiots open blast with butane, especially in closed spaces, as clearly shown in the article."

  • "I thought weed was all about mellowing out and expanding your sense of wellness. At least that is the message I see on the Perfect Union billboards advertising weed that are along the highway. Four young, attractive, hip people enjoying life to the fullest. Kind of like cigarette advertisements from the old days before we figured out cigarettes weren’t good for you or booze advertisements before we figured out that wasn’t too bueno either."

  • "This attempted overreach should be a humbling event for IWMA that they will have to formally change their definition for SRRE. From their own 1994 “Joint Powers Agreement” definitions: “1.19 “SRRE” means a Source Reduction And Recycling Element as required by the Act (California Resources Code Sections 40000 et seg.), as that element may be amended from time to time.” https://iwma.com/wp-content/uploads/recyclist/userfiles/IWMA%20jpa%20agreement.pdf If you review the CA Resources Code for single use plastic you'll find four statues: 42270 & 42270 Single-Use Plastic Straws, 42284 Single-Use Carryout Bags, & 42288 Finacial Provisions “...two million dollars ...loans for the creation and retention of jobs and economic activity in this state for the manufacture and recycling of plastic reusable grocery bags that use recycled content....” You will not find a CA state waste management Public Resource Code/PRC on single-use PRODUCE bags. So, there is no state feasibility study to ride the coattails on single-use produce bags. Now let's go back to the Joint Power Agreement Section 5 Powers 5.1: “...implement the programs specified in the state approved and locally adopted SRREs....” Bingo! The definition that IWMA has in 1.19 for SRRE only refers to “required by the Act (California Public Resource Code Sections 4000 et seg.)....” So, for locally adopted SRREs there is no formal definition in their 1994 agreement. If locally adopted SRREs were defined wouldn't it take a full compliment of SLO County Public Resource Codes that IWMA could act upon? It sure seems so to me, plus the IWMA must unanimously redraft or amend the SRRE definition in 1.19. With a 9 to 4 recent vote how audacious to think you can amend the agreement. Section 14 “This Agreement may only be amended or terminated by a written instrument executed by all Members....” C'mon IWMA aren't you getting over your skis on this? It's about time you get a hand-slap to realize you were formed for the economies of motion off all the participates to enact or enforce CA state PRCs, not pull new ones out of your backside. And, certainly not to hopefully enact something that may or may not work without a full feasibility study."

  • "Obispan....Good idea! Lets just turn sleepy, clean Morro Bay into Santa Maria or Lompoc. Replace the good folks here with mexicans that are always accompanied by gangs, violence, murders, graffiti and trash. Oh by the way.. Have you peered into the kitchens of any restaurant in MB? All non English speaking latins. Where are American kids to get entry level positions? I started in that industry as a kid in the 70's. All English speaking Americans then. You are about as bright as a grape, an obvious sellout democrat and a racist."
