No truth to the rumor they are all going to Colorado to get into the pot business. Why can't heRead More convict Barbara Boxer and Diane Feinstein for not letting Southern California have the water we desperately need instead of letting it all runoff into the ocean? He should be concentrating on that.

who cares what that dbag does.
Donald Snyder April 20, 2014 at 07:24 am
That same attitude is what got us into this mess in the first place. Who cares? Well, for starters,Read More we should. The voters who put these idiots into office. The same people who promise us they are going to look out for our best interest and instead look out for theirs instead. We, as voters, have become complacent because we now 'expect' our elected officials to become higher than thou thugs who tell us what to do instead of listening to what we have to say. Look at the numbers of people voting. It's going down almost every year. You get what you pay for? Not quite. You get politicians into office who haven't been properly veted. Who are not held to their word. Who take money from us, the voters and their bosses without any shame or remorse. Is this the kind of government you want? I sure as hell don't. I want a representative who does just that - represents what I want. Cleaner water without being stupid about it, clearner air without mortgaging the farm to get it. Smarter people elected so we don't have the Al Sharpton and Harry Reids of the world telling us what bad people we are when in fact it's them that are screwed up. Unfortunately, yourusmcboyelvises, you are getting just that. And I'm tired of spending my hard earned money that I worked for to have these people tell me I should act a certain way, not have guns in my house when it's the law to do so. To pay for everyone who decides to cross the border with higher taxes and to feel like I owe anyone anything. I don't owe anyone a damn thing. And it's about time Congress on down hears about it. You want the government we have, you can have them. I, for one, want to strive to make this country great again. Not some slum hole like India or pick a nation in Africa.

Are you kidding me? Do you even know what a greenhouse gas emission is? It is water vapor. EnergyRead More independent? Green is NOT the answer. Do any of you people know what Agenda 21 is? From this article it would appear not. I suggest you do some real deep research, to find out what the end game is. This stuff going on in Nevada, with rancher Bundy, is exactly what I am talking about. This is all about the total Elimination, of private property, and private ownership of automobiles. If that is who you are, I want NO part of it. As soon as I can, I am the hell out of this Commie state of California. What is going on in our country today, and especially in CA, is Fascism. Anyone who does not recognize that, is either hugely naive, or loves the ideas of Karl Marx.

I cannot get over the irony- the most rabid anti gun nut job in the state Senate, Leland Yee, getsRead More busted for selling guns illegally. This is just too poetic. Should he fall on his sword.... or his bullet button?

Amazing. The cartoon encourages us to make fun of ourselves. Yet, the only responses are cynicalRead More anti-everything conspiracy theories (except that bit about land developers buying the Oceanside City Council, which, no matter how cynical it sounds is actually true). Let's lighten up a bit.
Donald Snyder April 9, 2014 at 07:59 pm
Political cartoonist are able to get away with the things they do because it is labeled a 'cartoon'.Read More But the simple face is they are try to poke fun and wake up the masses as to what is happening under their collective noses. To 'lighten up' and not care about what is going on is suicide. We need to get in people who understand what is going on and want to work hard to change it. Yes, we have the best politicians that money can buy. So what does that say for the rest of the world?

I'm glad this Obamacare debate is finally over. Everybody wins. Good healthcare that's affordable isRead More the best way to go for everyone.

Considering less than 15% of America needed health care in the first place (the rest of us get itRead More from our jobs) why couldn't we have found a different approach to this problem than taking even more out of the paychecks of those who pay for health care through their jobs? 87% of these new sign-ups are also getting subsidies to help them pay for their health care. Guess who is going to be stuck with that bill? I understand everyone should have health care, but sticking the bill with people who are already overwhelmed with paying the highest taxes in the country to support people who refuse to work is getting to be just a bit too much. And, after reading some of the stories about how much the premiums are going up, how much some of the medicine is going to cost, it will hurt everyone in the end. When will people start to realize that the guy in the White House doesn't know what he's doing and most of the time he's lying to the American public?

This is a losing argument, he can appeal, but it cannot win. In Illinois, despite similar wishes,Read More the end result was that law enforcement had the burden of proof in denying someone a concealed carry permit. Which is only logical; the Bill of Rights automatically provides the right to keep and bear arms, so to prevent someone from doing so requires real cause, not a sham excuse.

Isn't it nice that a major company can break the law and have their lawyers handle it, while if weRead More citizens did the same thing we'd be thrown in jail. Time to build a pipeline from a friendly well stocked water state and bypass these guys. I've never seen their rates go down, and I probably never will.

I hope they check for a valid drivers license with a matching auto registration before giving awayRead More these way overpriced seats .... my guess is a lot of the people getting these seats are unlicensed illegal aliens ...

This latest storm is a good start. However, have you noticed all the runoff we're losing down theRead More drains in back into the ocean? We need more dams like the one in Hemet (Diamond Valley) for the lean times. And here in Southern California there are more lean times than not. Especially when we have a need to build, build, and build some more.

Toilet flushing used to be the biggest water waste in California but, thanks to the low flush toiletRead More rebate program toilets are no longer the biggest household water waste. It's now people waiting for hot water at faucets and showers multiple times each day. So when will we see water rebates for people who install hot water recirculators in their home? New Mexico has been doing it for years?
Donald Snyder March 23, 2014 at 08:15 am
I have been saving my water from my shower (turn it on, wait for ever for it to heat up) because myRead More water heater is on the opposite side of the house. I take that water after I shower and throw it over the balcony onto the grass below. Saves watering the plants as well. It's amazing where I work how many people blast the faucet on full speed to wash their hands when they only need a trickle. And some of those idiots leave it on when they leave for fear of touching it and getting germs. It's hard to enlighten stupid people. Most just don't care.
