  • "It may very well be the teachers, but they are not the only influence in a teen's life. Parents, coaches, friends, social media, the internet to name only a few of the other major influences in a teen's life that shape their opinions on the world they live in. Just because it happened at a school doesn't necessarily correlate to where those teens got their opinions on things, or that teachers are obviously responsible somehow."

  • "There's nothing to investigate. Stupid video, stupid people. In the meantime after the beating we have taken with the rain storms there are pot holes every 20 feet on our roads. I want see my tax dollars spent fixing them and not taking on personal vendettas for big babies. These are the people that are supposed to be running our communities? Because they're all acting like junior high juveniles fighting on Facebook! Don't waste my tax dollars keeping up with the Kardashian's."

  • "This seems like a huge waste of money! In my opinion the video was not funny, it was tasteless and those involved should have known better in this age of hyper sensitivity. It was some very poor judgment that reflects on their decision making and department. Now some folks are making a mountain out of a molehill. If they ever repeat it, then let the axe drop."

  • "I have a better argument. How about getting rid of the narco state mentality of liberal California? Make SLO downsize the wine industry. Stop rationalizing and legalizing marijuana usage. Stop alcohol tourism and the sensationalization of alcohol related activities. Create a zero tolerance law for those that bring drugs into our country."

  • "I don't understand all this talk about liberal indoctrination. The one indisputable fact is that an act of vandalism has occurred. Defacing public property is a crime regardless of the message. I am not interested in the origin of the criminal's views. Politics are irrelevant. It's the antisocial behavior that needs to be addressed."

  • "Apple in Education has been around since the advent of the Apple II series back in the '80's, iProducts weren't even in Apples thought process at the time. No, it wasn't some conspiracy to give our kids a "liberal" based education, rather an option to the IBM DOS based computers dominating the market. Apple's dominant innovation, the graphic (icon) driven Desktop, made it simpler to navigate for students, and everyone else (I sold over 20 IIGS's it's first Christmas in production, '86 I think... Not one of them to a teacher, some to parents but the majority to grandparents). Apples/Macs can peruse the internet just like a Windows based PC (less risk of viruses, malware and the like) so "trumpism' is as easy to access as any other form of political bullshit! I just wonder why you didn't comment on Bill Gates "liberalism"; his Windows OS has dominated the computer market for decades so (according to your "Apple Reasoning") his OS should be suspect too, right? Or is it since Windows is after all ran on "conservative IBM type machines" it's above suspicion? And Mr. Jobs did recognize a very lucrative and wide open to a new idea in the computing market, schools at all levels! What a mind!!!! The DOS based world did catch up as IBM offered their machines to schools and students at deeply discounted prices as well, still do!"

  • "A direct reflection on the "Indoctrination, not Education" that is happening in our public school system. When was the last time you saw a registered Republican teaching in a public school? Any conservative that braves entry into an occupation of education will not allow their views to be known or they will be forced out by the intolerance of the "party of tolerance". Stop tenure! Ban the NEA! Teach the children how to learn, not what political party to HATE!"

  • "Sad but true.... The less indoctrinated a person is the more likely they won't like, let alone agree with, the likes of the trumpster... I have nothing but respect for those kids who are in living in this "trumped-up" world, possibly with parents that have been "trumped", and can say "Hell No! This shit just ain't American!" and believe it! Hey! From what I hear Rupert Murdock is looking into starting his own charter school network, Fox Schools, were "We Teach and You Listen (Quietly)" Can't f***in' wait..."

  • "Yep, you're right! "They", liberals, don't know any better, how could they? They were taught by liberals exclusively, and the ones before them, and so-on and so-on and so on.... Wait a f***in' minute! Then you should be a "liberal educated idiot" as well, right? Wow, we can't even get past politics in our kids schools! I'll bet SLO is frothing at the mouth right now in anticipation of the demise of public schools under the new AmWay Education Secretary, yep! Better a person who has no experience, no formal education in education, is a capitalist purest, believes guns should be allowed in schools to protect from those pesky bears that show up every day right at lunch time and wants to turn our education system into a for profit charter network! Hell yea! That's one way to go from "liberal teachers" to "conservative (trumpism) indoctrinaters" to make amerika great again! I can't wait...."

  • "There may be some safety concerns if the fuel rods continue to be stored there after the plant closes but it would be from the need to protect the rods from terrorists and idiots. As long as the areas within the plant that are "hot" are kept secure, other areas (including, I assume, the desal plant) should be safe. As Ricky2 said, the problem will be supplying it with enough energy to operate -- an expensive proposition without an on-site energy source. The idea may be worth considering but the economics may not pan out."

  • "While there are indeed a few teachers that, consciously or unconsciously, do some indoctrination of kids (and they are not all "liberals"), the worst indoctrination comes from mass media sources (with FOX near the top) and fear-mongering politicians. If you want to stop kids from being indoctrinated, teaching kids to think for themselves is a good start. The problem is that too many adults aren't capable of that because they lack the ability to question their own beliefs and accept any opinion that is thrown at them by those with which they have a general tendency to agree. This applies to both conservatives and liberals. Critical thinking starts with one's self."

  • "LOL! We can only hope! I can't stand the Pats', not one bit. I've always respected the Cowboys Origination but a true Rams Fan will not give any form of homage to any other team as they look at us in the rear view mirror of the standings... Oooops! Shit, reality some times even penetrates my set of horns!"
