Re: “Political expediency

Re: “Signs of drama

"this is America we are entitled to our opinions" LMAO actually no not everyone is allowed to have an opinion,In fact all of the people that dont subscribe to Heidi Harmons liberal ideology are not allowed to have opinions.If you walk around our town with a MAGA hat on you will be scorned and glared at and possibly assaulted.If you mention you didnt like Hillary for President you could be black balled by your community and have your reputation tarnished for 'having an opinion'.We live in a society were people walk on eggshells because they are afraid of saying the wrong thing and having the thought police come down on them. ----BTW my theory is 'the shredder' is really a gaggle of protein starved lesbians with patchy pink hair and expensive tattoos

Re: “Signs of drama

LoL Shredder is shilling for Harmon. Shreddie boy is what you call an NPC. A computer program could write this stuff. Insert liberal word salad and press the button. Beep boop beep!
I'm sure when Amazon purchases New Times (hey it's cool, the management team will be trans POC vegans as required by the Harmon diverse jobs initiative) he'll be replaced by a shredder from India.

Re: “Money mails

According to the language of the measure, routine maintenance will not be affected. It says it in the measure! Does Tom think we can't read? Or does he just think we don't care enough to try? Both are untrue, as I hope we prove in a couple weeks.

Re: “Signs of drama

Too bad the Shredder presents jokes as serious comments (my joke about spray painting the sign.) I have also joked about spray painting the black building downtown that everyone hates, but this does not mean I am saying this seriously. Oh! well! What can you expect from someone who hides behind such a name as Shredder?

Re: “In this corner ...

Gurnee and the NIMBY groups claim they want to "preserve" and "save" San Luis Obispo, but all they've done so far is displace people by blocking housing. The architecture will stay the same, but the only people living here will be the old people who got here first and pulled up the drawbridge. Young people, tough luck, we don't want you here.

Re: “In this corner ...

hmm, seems the formatting removed my caricature of the shredders polemics, it went something like this:
Heidi Harmon is - insert "progressive" word salad here, for the wamens and childrens ;-; the poor can go live in an RV on the back of my ranch, power the cars with lgbtbbq+ vegan farts.
Keith Gurnee is - crypto republican literally hitler developer fly over states and probably white too.

But seriously folks, why do vegan farts smell so bad?

Re: “In this corner ...

Well if that's not a biased article lmao!
Heidi Harmon is
Keith Gurnee is
We report you decide!

The shredder is just more proof that the left can't meme.

When comparing Gurnee and Harmon on the most basic archetypal level I'm left with the feeling that the biggest difference is that Gurnee is an adult and Harmon is a child. Harmon has done nothing for my demographic ( small business owner, and temporarily embarrassed member of the middle class), she's made a mockery of it all. Gurnee isn't perfect but when it comes to this area he's a breath of fresh air and could be our way out of this purely ideological sort of Potemkin solidarity for the working class that Harmon represents. I was impressed with Gurnee's recent article in this publication and I encourage people to read it. Considering the current political climate you'll probably get that rare feeling that there is an adult speaking.

Re: “In this corner ...

Anyone who votes on gender and nationality is a fool. You failed to report on why Ms. Garcia is running and how she would be a positive addition to the council

Re: “In this corner ...

The search for truth cannot be cited as a reason to read the Shredder. The only reason the public may feel inclined to read this typically defamatory screed is to see what poor sap will be pilloried this week.

But for what its worth, I will still dignify this rant with a reply. Our anonymous writer may think the term conservative Democrat is an oxymoron, but this is actually a legitimate wing of the Democratic Party and this may be the best way to describe Keith Gurnees political orientation. Fortunately, the Democrats have more than one wing in their party (at least so far) which results in their being the big tent party. If the Democrats wish to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory this coming November 6, then they should allow the Progressives and Democratic Socialists to purge the Party of all moderates, centrists and conservatives (as our local Progressives are successfully doing).

Even though this coming City election is non-partisan, party allegiance appears to be the only filter that Progressives are using to evaluate their candidates. This results in trivializing and dumbing down the seriousness of this upcoming election. What is at stake in San Luis Obispo is not the rights of women, minorities and the LGBTQ community (as if the Mayor had any role in addressing these issues) but rather the future of our City. What is missing is a grown-up discussion of the imminent loss of local control over the development process, the damage inflicted on this community by overtaxing our infrastructure and unresolved issues relating to our town-and-gown relationship with both Cal Poly and Cuesta College.

Re: “In this corner ...

The Shredder conveniently omits that Gurnee is supported by Christine Mulholland, Allen Settle, Peg Pinard, Kathy Smith, Kenneth Clark, and John Ewan, all moderate or moderate progressives. Come on Shredder, if you are going to trash someone, you should at least try to be more honest!

Re: “Money mails

Thank you for the post. "The County Auditor says oil provides fewer than 32-76 local jobs and only 0.43% of County-assessed taxes.
Reports show agriculture and tourism together contribute over 40,000 jobs and billions of dollars to the local economy.
Agriculture and tourism depend on clean and plentiful water. Groundwater contamination (from oil spills and fracking) could cause significant economic harm. " from Voter's Edge, a neutral source.

Re: “How dry I am

It's hypocritical to pretend that we care about marginalized people or welcoming outsiders when we have obvious de facto racial segregation and unfair housing policies that keep people out.

Re: “How dry I am

I've been reading Shredder since I was probably too young to be reading certain profanities but I've always loved and enjoyed the humor, wit, and astute musings of current and past events. I'm 29 now and still love reading your articles!

Re: “Money mails

Thanks for the great article! I actually had a conversation with Tom Bordonaro about his opposition to Measure G and specifically why he thinks it will "ban routine maintenance on existing wells" and "shut down all existing production". After all, he said he "closely studied Measure G", so he should have been able to respond, right? Wrong! He told me (I am paraphrasing here) "I don't have the measure in front of me" and oh, by the way, "I had a colleague of mine in the Central valley do the analysis for me. After all, they have no skin in the game and have a lot more experience with oil production than we do". Right, Tom, "no skin in the game???" As if the Central Valley doesn't rely on oil revenues to fund the government operations there. Anyway, he said he would get back to me with more information.... still waiting.

Re: “Money mails

The only assessor Ive ever heard of that had no licensing whatsoever when elected, just name recognition. Didnt have any kind of appraisers license or formal appraisal training as well as no training or licensing in the field of tax consulting or even tax preparation.Then he spends little time in the office and is re-elected to the quarter million dollar a year job. Only in SLO county.

Re: “Political expediency

The GOP is openly pro-rape, so accusations of rape or attempted rape lend a politician street cred with the party & especially Trump's base, a motley pack of feral psychopaths who revel in seeing vulnerable people suffer, weep & tremble. The orange hellbeast is worshiped by his devotees for his depravity, cruelty & amorality. They are proud to support a slimy piece of shit who sexually assaults women & who brags about it. This is why the also want Kavanaugh on the supreme court. They want more thugs, predators & bullies in power because they get off on power, or the semblance of it.

City officials' killing of Bird should make the local "get off our lawn" grumpy old men happy. We can all get back to texting and driving now.

Re: “Ageism or sexism?

After the Chicken Little hyperbole used by T. Keith Gurnee and Ken Schwartz, the "reckless and stupid" comment comes across as measured and reasonable.
