Re: “Fake outrage

You only say most fake news comes from conservatives because you believe most of the fakery the left puts out.

Re: “Fake outrage

(Whittle, proving he's at least not an anti-Semite, says Ashkenazi Jews have a 115 IQ followed by East Asians, Koreans, Chinese, and Japanese who "clock in at 105, 106," followed by Caucasians at about 100, then Hispanics around 90, then American blacks as 85, "partly because they have 20 percent European mixture in their gene pool," then sub-Saharan Africans around 70 IQ, and last and definitely least Australian aboriginals "clocking in around 67 or whatever.")

Small correction: The quote you attribute to Whittle was actually said by Stefan Molyneux.

Re: “Futility at its finest

"Both the causes and the effects of these public spats highlight the fraying shreds of what's left of political discussions over disagreements. Welcome to President Donald Trump's Great America. " "... his letter's extreme tone is definitive of the rhetoric that our society spits out. "

"But his letter's extreme tone is definitive of the rhetoric that our society spits out."

"Schwartz is clearly a privileged old white man who's never interacted with the potential of being sexually assaulted by a male penis, but possibly has had a weird experience with a bicycle. He's an idiot who hasn't truly reflected on the difficult conversation our nation is having about rape and how commonplace sexual assault is. "

Irony much?.

Re: “Futility at its finest

Bottom line is that the most effective and easiest way to restore order, civility and BENEFICIAL ACCOMPLISHMENTS to our County Board of Supervisors is to join the grass-roots county-wide Republican and Democratic Coalition supporting Jimmy Paulding for Supervisor. More than ever, we need Mr. Paulding's strong, moderating voice on the Board. Perhaps even mores so, the public needs a fresh Board member who has the education and real-world experience to get the job done in a common-sense and respectful manner.

Compare the other candidates and present Board members. NONE of them have the high degree of real world,. relevant experience AND the superior level of educational acomplishments that make Jimmy Paulding the superior and ideal candidate to help bring our Board and our community together for progress and prosperity during these troubled, angry times.

It is time for voters to set aside partisan bickering and elect the best most qualified candidates who care about the success of the entire community, rather than simply themselves and their small band of behind the scenes backers.

Jimmy Paulding is an antidote to the poison we have all seen and felt infecting our local communities in the past few years. Let's hope the public recognizes this and does the right thing.

Re: “Futility at its finest

Do the research. Check the facts: Ever since the sleazy COLAB Lobbyists Michael Brown and Andy Caldwell set up their political shake-down shop in San Luis Obispo county our local politics has been poisoned with toxic rhetoric and libelous accusations and divisive misleading propaganda of the most odious sort.That is because Brown and Caldwell make their living by dividing communities and getting people to fight with each other and then collecting money from small minority of wealthy patrons they promise to protect and fight for.

Maybe it is time that the New Times got past the snarky ineffective comments and did a thorough investigative report on COLAB leaders and the toxic scam they are infecting our community with.

COLAB, more than any other organization In San Luis Obispo County history, actively subverts the democratic system in a most heinous and shameful matter. Do the research, check the facts. Dont be a COLAB sucker or scammer.

Re: “Crazytown

Ever since the cynical, self-serving COLAB lobbyist Michael Brown and his mean-spirited co-hort Andy Caldwell with their perverse, far-right, self-serving Trump-sympathizing agenda moved into SLO County our local politics has been poisoned with lies, exaggerations and libelous rhetoric. When it comes to the upcoming 2018 elections, the best all the good, common, decent people can do to calm the waters and restore common sense and decency in local politics will be to support the growing Republican/Democrataic county-wide coalition aiming to elect open-minded and EXPERIENCED candidate Jimmy Paulding for Board of Supervisors.

Maybe I am a little oversensitive. Maybe I'm tired of constant stigma and abuse driving my friends to suicide. You decide. You're obviously the expert here.

Re: “Pass the kouchie

There hasn't been a SLO NORML meeting in 3 months......the 3 months that meetings and coming together were needed. Jason does not speak for many of the old members. Jason is from Monterey county where they ordinanced him out of doing business up he moved here 6 months ago, now he is railing on "out of towners" who want to do business here. The BOS is jaded too far to the right and are being told what to do by their evangelical Christian donors who paid to get them elected. The choice of ordinance needs to get to the people, the citizens of San Luis Obispo County. Refer Madness's easier to fool someone that to get them to admit they have been fooled!

Re: “De-weirder

When people are trying to do good deeds and care about living things they should not be put down by deploreables.
Start thinking a little harder before opening your mouth.

Re: “De-weirder

You're digging a deeper hole ! I ask you to go back and read my comments from last week. My opinion has not changed and in fact you've just added insult to injury with your update on the fox. I was hoping to read an apology today and I suppose what you wrote was a half hearted attempt at that. But how about apologizing to the people you called out by name in bold letters last week. How about applauding good deeds instead of putting them in the shredder? I'll stand by everything I wrote to you last week. I'll wait, but I won't hold my breath, you still have a chance to make this right.

On Pirates cove, to our so called Stupidvisors.... although I don't always agree with their ideas or decisions, rather than name calling, suggestions and constructive criticism would go much further in my book.

Re: “De-weirder

That little gray fox did not become too accustomed to humans. Humans have become too accustomed to killing everything that isn't caged up.

And Shredder, you did not make right your stupid remarks from last week by making more stupid remarks this week.

Shredder used to be sharp but compassionate. Now the blades are dull. Perhaps it's time to upgrade the machine.

Re: “De-weirder

I hadn't seen last weeks shredder until today and after reading this went and read it. WOW. Can't believe you thought that was funny. Nor did I know the NTs considers the shredder funny. I see the shredder and ripping people who deserve to be called to the carpet for misdeeds. None of this was funny, none of these people did anything wrong. They only stepped up to help. Hate magazine? Well the shredder in this instance certainly was. I can see why some vowed not to support advertisers and have requested an apology. I agree. How can you write this today and not apologize to the two woman you called to the carpet? Very wrong. Fix your error, don't hide behind it with poor me I'm deplorable!

Re: “De-weirder

You need to do more than jump into the deplorable basket. I'll agree with Mr. Katz above. You need to apologize, you need to get it right. You just don't seem to get it do you?

Re: “De-weirder

The Council clearly said the ribbons in memory of the fox were fine but asked that folks don't attach paper/images. Why do you keep harping on the negative. You also did not apologize to the two people that you called out by name who deserve your apology, Vivian Krug Cotton and Cleo Stanley . And yes you omitted the educational signs which allowed you to joke and write a hit piece which clearly damaged these 'kindhearted folks' efforts to raise money. Those educational signs will also help the 'resident chickens' and roosters. Come on New Times. Do the right thing, apologize to the individuals you 'poked fun' at and New Times, write a piece helping raise the funds for the signs which you have personally damaged.

Re: “Go fund it

Well if the inmates do not like the way they are treated in jail, don't do things that land you in there in the first place. They get 3 meals a day, free dental/ medical, more than many elderly can even afford. And the lil fox did no criminal activities to deserve what he got. This is why I prefer animals to people

Re: “Go fund it

ML Sanders, what a literally wonderful comment. So beautifully written, and so very kind. I love this: "...the little fox, showering all of the parkgoers with joy, and all of the dogs with affection. It is this radiant innocence that we are mourning."

I agree with Russell Katz: Shredder blew it on this one, on several points, but can redeem themselves with a substantial contribution to the fox fund.

Re: “Go fund it

Appalling! Since when do we punish and drag good people through the mud? They most certainly do deserve an apology in writing by this publication. Not only should the New Times publish an apology they should make a substantial contribution to the Fox Fund! I too have a good mind not to support your advertisers and unless an apology is made no longer touch your paper.

Re: “Go fund it

Ha what a joke funding for inmates healthcare. Most inmates healthcare is already shitty by the life style they chose, ie: drugs, alcohol, when they arrive in jail. And if they did not do things that intially landed them in coustody in the first place, we as txpayers would not have to support their free meals, free medical and dental care, that we out here can barely pay for. I hope when people think of the thousands of lil FOXY;s that live a disgusting life in cramped, filthy cages, just to be skinned for some one's coat, or hood, that i at least this innocent fox, got to actually feel grass under it's paws, smell the flowers, have kindness shown to him. The fox would get my money brfore some idiot who lands in jail due to their own actions.
