Afghanistan, Iraq, how about a deployment to Santa Maria?

Not as long as Mayor Patino has her sanctuary policies in place. Until she wants to upload the laws of the land let her city deal with the consequences of her policies. Maybe the voters will figure out keeping her in office is not the right thing to do.

Happy Holidays Santa Maria style.

Starting to see a trend here? And then all of the cities in SLO County want to expand to the maximum. I remember when Santa Maria use to be a nice place, not so much anymore. Going there during the day would be questionable going at night would be out of the question. SLO wake up and observe and see what you are trying to create? Another Santa Maria?

Let’s do like Escape from New York…put a fence around Santa Maria, seal it off, and let them fend for themselves.
