Did you find the video that SLO city officials made joking about "hot," "shirtless" firefighters offensive?

Yes. It was sexist and demeaning to the brave members of the SLO fire department.
I was more offended by the terrible jokes and bad acting.
It was in poor taste, but the media is hyping it up way too much.
The video was good-natured self-deprecation This is political correctness run amok!

On Capps and taxes

Paso Robles

By Pearl Munak

Have you heard the misleading ad against Congresswoman Lois Capps? The truth is she once rented a room to a staffer for low rent and did not think to report this small amount of income. When she did, she voluntarily paid the extra tax. Her opponent is being pursued by the IRS for an enormous amount.

Capps did not raise your taxes. She voted to reduce payroll taxes for 95 percent of employees and employers.

The ad calls the $90-a-year penalty for refusing to buy health insurance when you can afford it “the biggest tax increase ever.”
