  • "Why not just bump it up to an even 10%? Or better yet, 50% - they'd totally cover all those well-earned retirement packages. Wouldn't want those good folks who gave SO MANY YEARS to be relegated to eating cat food, now, do we? Heck, why not just take all 100% of everything, then have the wise people figure out what we should have, and they can then redistribute it as they see fit? That sounds like a utopia to me!"

  • "I am hoping, with the latest internet purges, that the adults are just hunkering down and letting the traumatized consume themselves. I just hope CCN does not come to the point where all their clicks/revenue from a radical sect does not require constant feeding, lest they become like VOX. It is my firm belief that our society has been conditioned to anger for so many years, there may be no easy way out of it. I also believe this was done to better control people, as nothing is easier to control than angry people... as long as there's a boogeyman, at least."

  • "Long read and gets into the weeds a bit too much, but interesting take nonetheless. I'm probably not your favorite fan, but you certainly appear to be on the right side of this situation. I shudder to think about living in what is arguably one of the more beautiful cities I've known. It's the politics and underpinnings like you've mentioned here that keeps me away. Truly, good luck in your endeavor - certainly the city of SLO could use a change."

  • "MB finally cleaned up the huge homeless encampment on the freeway exit circles, but now they are roaming into the neighborhoods, Time to clean up the town and make dumpster diving illegal. I had to chase one away from digging through my recycle bin for taking all the aluminum cans. I now put my cans out in the morning."

  • "It was a long read, but worth it. Reads like a published novel or polished deposition. An elegant defense of your position and a thorough presentation of interactions, albeit from your viewpoint. Thank you for your endless hours of research and service; people who've not suffered endless meetings as an appointed and uncompensated planning or other commissioner may have no idea of how much reading and prep and SWEAT goes into it, and I speak from two decades of out-of-county experience. Not to mention your own credentials and experience which SLO was fortunate to have applied to your task. So again, thank you for your service. Concerning your specific performance, I'm a doze-the-planet property rights cretin so policy-wise we do not see eye to eye one bit, believe me, but I admire both your energy and your dedication to responsibly opposing extremists of my ilk. Healthy combative debate. I own nothing in SLO City and never would even invest nor LLC there, however it sounds like you deserve support and encouragement unseating a SLO Council member. Good luck."

  • "Violent types belong off our streets, with appropriate constitutional bail figures. Good job, MBPD. But digressing to another bail case for comparison, what is up with this Ghislaine lady on the East Coast who was DENIED BAIL after offering five mil, home confinement, and an up to date ankle GPS ankle monitor? For alleged crimes twenty-three frigging years ago? How does one produce alibi witnesses for twenty three years ago? So she is sentenced to a YEAR summarily (trial date judge set trial in July 2021). Vicious. Actions erasing the statutes of limitations are politically popular but wildly unjust. So is denial of bail where nobody died. Just my two cents worth."

  • "After Newsom's second closings, COVID is probably going to be the biggest wealth transfer mechanism in our lifetime. Small service businesses wither and die and those services replaced by deep pocket corporations. Then Newsom can complain on how the wealth gap has increased and why more social programs are needed to maintain power. You do realize that mass transit like BART, UBER, airlines and buses aren't on that list. Maybe airlines are doing a cursory temperature check, but if someone is not showing symptoms the whole A/C system on those mass transit systems has got to be just as bad of a virus carrier than being on a cruise ship. China got serious about mass transit and at one point they stopped selling gasoline in addition to blocking the roads out of Wuhan to maintain the quarantine."

  • ""What super power protection do liberal protesters have...." The rates of transmission are higher in closed indoor rooms vs outdoors. It does not matter what flavor the protests are, outdoor crowds are somewhat safer than indoor crowds, bars etc with more fresh air. Less particulates from people especially the maskless covidiots. I never brought up liberals or that the virus isn’t transmitted or cars were a dire threat that's all you being offended over a reply to someone else."

  • "You hire RRM, classic "cocktail party" architects, for their influence peddling and corruption, not architecture. As it turns out, they're not very good at the latter, which, if they get you in exchange for the influence peddling and connections, is apparently worth it."

  • "Well, your attitude perfectly sums up why this country is the epicenter of this pandemic with 135,000 deaths and well on our way to 200,000. I have been wearing a mask whenever I go out since March and it hasn't hurt me one bit. If it makes ANY difference at all, shouldn't we all be doing it considering the situation?"

  • "Read the words you quoted: "can help" "may prevent" "can prevent" "there is evidence" - nothing I have disagreed with, either. Like I said, on the best of days they MIGHT help. That's basically the "get out of responsibility" card that "experts" who know better have been conditioned to repeat. It's not just me that noticed it. Why did the CDC, the WHO, and the US Surgeon General all flip-flop on this issue (at least once, if not more) since the beginning of all of this? What did they learn about masks "last week" that they did not know about until then? Shouldn't that cause concern at the very least?"
