Weekly Poll
Do you support the SLO County Board of Supervisors electing John Peschong as chair over Adam Hill?

Yes, the new conservative majority has a right to flex its muscle.
No, the board broke a nonpartisan tradition of rotating the chair, and Hill was next in line.
It doesn't matter—the liberals are screwed either way.
I've stopped following this circus years ago.

Keep presidents to two terms

Scott C. Presnal - Morro Bay

There is a proposed new law that has not been passed by our Congress (U.S. House of Representatives, Senate) called H. J. RES 15 that will allow a future president of the United States to serve more than two terms by doing away with the 22nd Amendment.

I am against repealing that amendment, because it will give our president more power to control and devastate our lives as a nation. Even if we have Christian people, this little reminder of this bill being proposed should be voted no by our own Congresswoman, Lois Capps (D).

In the long term, we are losing our freedom like we haven’t in a long time. Does it make any sense to vote on something that will have ultimate consequences in the near future?
