Re: “Let's get rid of partisanship in county politics

The word is that Lynne Compton is fearing for her political life and will be doing everything in her (and her lobbyist friends') powers to avoid having an honest, face-to-face political debate with Jimmy Paulding. Instead, Compton is aiming to avoid any serious challenges to her selfish, skewed world-view and so hopes to use radio host Dave Congalton to help her spread her one-sided, misleading, bought-and-paid-for propaganda to prospective voters without serious or credible challenge. What an embarrassment and travesty that will be (again!)
Bottom line is we need HONEST, CARING and most of all COMPETENT local leadership, now more than ever.

Re: “YouTuber mulls legal action after Morro Bay police chief run-in

A cop should know the law. But a citizen is required by law to identify themselves to officers when asked. So they were both in the wrong. We hold cops to higher standards though.

Re: “YouTuber mulls legal action after Morro Bay police chief run-in

This guy is a scam artist trying to make a living by causing disturbances then playing victim. His purpose is not to "Audit" Government facilities, but to hit a payday by creating a hostile atmosphere. He reminds me of the guy who throws water on the floor at the grocery store and then pretends to fall. Wondering if this is his full-time job. If this fool follows through with going to court I hope the judge fines him for disturbing the peace. There's enough real world problems to deal with, what an asshole. He probably spends the rest of his time and his mother's basement trying to cast spells.

Im grateful to the Coastal Commission, but disappointed that our County Planning Department and Board of Supervisors are not willing to protect our communities.

Re: “SLO City Council members donate to Paulding in supes race

With local elections coming up this year, the best thing any of us can do to restore civility, competence and common sense to the Board and provide a good example of leadership to all is to join the Republican/Democratic Coalition in support of Jimmy Paulding for County Supervisor.

Paulding deserves the support of each of the sitting board members: Gibson, Compton, Peschong, Arnold and Hill, each of whom consider Paulding a formidable candidate and the most qualified to run for a SLO County board seat in decades. It's an easy choice for those want improvement in local politics and a stop to dishonest, selfish, behind-the-scenes deal making that harms our community in the long run. The right choice has never been so clear. Paulding deserves his chance to make SLO County a better place to live, love, work and prosper.

Re: “The county should reconsider Community Choice Energy

The selfish and reckless behavior from some of local elected officials needs to be acknowledged for what it is: poor, incompetent and deceptive leadership that lacks due respect for the public and truth.

Re: “This island SLO

Thank you, Andrew, for your enlightened editorial, and for the plea to keep our coastal resources safe from the harms that threaten them. Human ignorance, greed and power, somehow reign supreme in the minds of many, while global warming, which has proven to have such devastating consequences, goes ignored. May the people rise up and overcome the mindlessness of those who just don't get it. WE are the people, and WE can rise up to make our world a better place, starting right here in SLO County. Thanks for sending up a flare!

It is sad that you do not know the difference between ending partisan politics and putting your team in charge.

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: “Let's get rid of partisanship in county politics

The choice is clear. If you want oil drilling off the coast, dust on the dunes, no choice on who to buy electricity from, and like paying the millions of dollars of ground water studies originally agreed to be paid by the Big Wine growers in Paso Robles but transferred by Lynn Compton to the General Taxpayers (thats you, District 4 taxpayers), vote for Lynn. She's your gal, and you should expect more of it in the future.
Or you can vote for Jimmy Paulding, and have a better future. Your choice.

This doesn't math: "The donations total $350, with Christianson and Pease donating $100 each, and Gomez donating $250."

Re: “Ocean-friendly eateries rethink the way we takeaway

It seem to me we would be wiser to change our personal habits so that waste of all kinds is properly disposed of rather than banning things that cause damage when tossed carelessly aside.
Before the government decided it could regulate personal behavior, TB was reduced by a program of education regarding spitting in the streets. You don't see many of us doing so today, do you?
Effective educational programs or simple awareness of a problem do more to change individual behavior than any ban.
Activists turn to businesses or government is it seems easier than beginning a massive public education program. They forget than many individuals are just as aware as they are regarding the pollution caused by careless disposal of trash.

Re: “Supervisors decline to take stance on offshore oil drilling expansion

These Supervisors , 5th District Supervisor Debbie Arnold or 4th District Supervisor Lynn Compton are bought and paid for by the Republican Party, and therefore, are not to be trusted on any issues related to the environment. They would allow oil drilling if the party tells them to do it. We must organize to oust these corrupt and anti-environment politicians who do not care for our country and I would not be surprised if they are also Climate deniers... VOTE THEM OUT.
