Re: “Atascadero, SLO County won't join Monterey Bay Community Power

I was at the Atascadero City Council meeting about this, both of them, and it was clear that the conservative majority was not interested in being leaders and letting their voters decide what they wanted, but rather were rulers that tell the voters what they want to do. Leaders vs Rulers, big difference. If they actually wanted answers to their questions, they could have agendized the issue and directed staff to report back on their questions. But no, they know better than staff and the voters, and wouldn't even consider this. It seems the Board of Supervisors had a similar situation.
Elections are coming, voters of Atascadero and County of SLO, remember who decided that YOU dont get to decide.

Re: “What's in a name?

It is fascinating to observe what people choose to be upset about. In a nation which separates children from their parents and places them in Concentration Camps, whose leaders condone and support the slaughter and starvation of innocent men, women, and CHILDREN in numerous illegal wars/actions etc. by the US and or its allies based on lies, people wax existential and feign faux outrage because of the name a person decides to go by. Seriously? Me thinks their priorities are bit skewed...

Re: “Ignore bogus reports

Oceano is poor because the weather sucks and no ocean view. The weather is Pismo is much nicer, and they have houses up on hills, therefore people are willing to pay more money to be there, therefore higher property taxes, more sales taxes, et cetera.

Re: “Keep dreaming

Why would anyone get compensation for a pre-purchase existing condition? Were they tricked? Were they unaware of the giant sand dunes? Why do they feel entitled to change the situation now? Why would state parks pay for improvements to a neighborhood, that doesn't contribute to fund those improvements? Why would you make permanent changes to the ODSVRA without at least testing them first? Why would you weight the interests of a few thousand residents higher than a few million visitors?

Thanks for the information, Bonita. I just checked your numbers and they are correct.

Re: “Join the protest

Resistance actions against Trumps (Putin) "concentration camps continue. New York City, San Francisco, and other liberal metropolitan areas have almost completely emptied out as liberals flock to the southern border to liberate the surviving prisoners. Conditions in the camps are now beyond inhuman. According to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,migrants are being forced to drink out of toilets, and otherwisesubjected to systematic cruelty,(so you can understand why liberals are physically putting their bodies on the line to bring an end to this horrifying sadism, and not just sitting around on the Internet shrieking about concentration camps as they travel to their summer holiday rentals in San Luis Obispo, or Cambria, or wherever). These Putin-Trump-Nazi concentration camps are nothing at all like the detention facilities the Obama administration operated,even though they look exactly the same. Sure, thousands of migrant children were separated from their parents, in cages, and there weretens of thousands of incidents of rape, sexual abuse, beatings, and so on, but otherwise these Obama detention facilities were more like great big 2-star hotels, or like student dorms at a state university, so there was no need for liberals to get all worked up and start comparing them to places like Dachau and Buchenwald. Plus, heresa picture of dead people! Look at this picture! These people are dead! So just shut up about Obama already! Enough with history, and critical thinking, and the practical aspects of immigration policy! Its time to abolish all national borders, issue everyone a U.S. passport, and transcend the whole concept of national sovereignty or at least to provide the capitalist ruling classes with an endless supply of cheap, undocumented, extremely compliant unskilled labor. Those Avila Beach lawns arent going to mow themselves!

Re: “Genetic trauma

Indoctrination by the liberal establishment into feeling guilty for black slavery that took place in the industrializing world is a good example of modern political brainwashing for an agenda that cant be directly promoted.

Perspective:
Slavery has always been a raceless issue. Before there was black slavery in the colonies, the English, Scottish, Welsh and Irish were enslaved by the ruling elite of the time. While many slaves are taken because they are seen as lesser, all races have been victims of slavery, and that includes whites. In Greece whites were enslaved and used for the manual tasks the rich did not want to partake in. In Rome, Gauls and Angles were taken as slaves Caesar enslaved as many as one million Gauls. Viking raiders sold captured Britons into slavery in the Muslim world. White slaves acted as a form of foreign exchange when dealing with Muslim countries mostly English people living on the coast, Slavs, Irish and Flemish slaves were sold to the Muslim world, or kidnapped by Muslim pirates, and while the men were worked to death as galley slaves, women and children were made into prostitutes. The establishment likes to make us think that the slavery that took place in Spain involves a mass number of black slaves but until the fall of Muslim Spain, whites made up the majority of slaves in Spain. The Russians, when they werent enslaving each other, were being enslaved by Ottoman and Mongolian raiders. In the summer of 1716, a Cornish cabin boy named Thomas Pellow and fifty-one of his comrades were captured at sea by the Barbary pirates (corsairs). Their captors, Ali Hakem and his network of Islamic slave traders, had declared war on the whole of Christendom. France, Spain, England and Italy had suffered a series of devastating attacks. Thousands of Europeans had been snatched from their homes and taken in chains to the great slave markets of Algiers, Tunis, and Sal in Morocco. Historian Richard Dunn has stated that the early sugar plantations of the British West Indies were nothing more than mass graves for white workers. The most recent direct slavery that whites had to endure took place when British parliament passed laws that resulted in the poorest Britons being sent to work in the colonies (USA). An Englishman, William Eddis, after observing white slaves in America: they groan beneath a worse than Egyptian bondage. Aristocratic Tories supported the program of slavery forced upon the poorest. This came at a time when British Parliament was condemning the black slavery that was taking place in the West Indies. Yes while complaining about mistreated black slaves in the West Indies, they were passing laws that enabled their own people to be sold into slavery. Work that one out! Oliver Cromwell, known for oppressing Catholics, also enslaved many Protestant whites; many of them also sent to the colonies. In February, 1656, Oliver Cromwell sent 1,200 poor women for enslavement and deportation to the colonies. In March, he repeated the process, but increased the order to 2,000 young women of England. Charles II continued to enslave white Protestants after Cromwell. In 1656, when ensuring the enslavement of Protestant rebels in the Caribbean colonies, the legislation he passed resulted in very harsh conditions for the slaves Richard Hall noted The condition of these Rebels was by this Act made as bad, if not worse than the negroes. Slavery manifested itself in all sorts of forms. The Cherokee Indians and many blacks were even known to have purchased or obtained white slaves. The Southern Confederacys land owners were actually known to treat the black slaves to better clothes, accommodation and food as compared to the white slaves. This was because black slaves, being much rarer in the earlier years of slavery in the colonies, were also much more costly and so land owners treated the blacks well, even if for their own interests. Due to this, many white slaves died of malnutrition or of various diseases. If a white slave was to have sexual intercourse with another slave during the 18th century slavery in the colonies, the period they are expected to be a slave would be extended, and if the female white slave got pregnant, the children would have to serve a modern life sentence (give or take a few years) in slavery. On the topic of child slavery, many British children sold into slavery, some as young as eight, were sold so that they can work on the Virginia fields as laborers. Some were even used as human brooms to sweep chimneys. One could argue that the horrendous wages Britons were expected to work on during the industrial period was just wage slavery; just as slaves were given the basic necessities to stop them from dying, British workers were given a wage only high enough to afford the basic necessities to stop them from dying. Long after slavery was ditched by the British Empire, white children were forced to work down in the mines, or, as the apprentice of a chimney sweep, both jobs that were very low paid and very dangerous. However, if the child didnt do the job, they would starve and die in the street; nobody would help as people during this time were relatively deprived and had their own families to look after. We could go into how American Africans are the wealthiest and most privileged Africans on earth, specifically because they were brought over as slaves, or how its funny to talk about slavery when companies like Amazon exist, but this is a good place to end the lesson.

Did they teach about any of this at the white guilt workshop? The next time someone comes at you with this anti-white agenda, tell them to check their privilege and thank White Christians for ending slavery (and the values of the enlightenment in general). Im still waiting on reparations from North African Muslims for my people being stolen from their homelands. As a white person Im epigenetically affected by this tragedy.

Re: “Local activist group aids displaced immigrants in Mexico

1st World liberals signal their high status and virtue to other 1st world liberals by working to help flood the USA with the 3rd world to further the goals of neo-liberal capitalism.

I'm especially excited that they are helping people who have been deported because of committing crimes. We really need more of the criminal immigrant element in our country. Without these vibrant ex-con future doctors and java script coders who would mow my lawn but also potentially rape me? Where would we get tacos from? Yet another one of those jobs lazy white people refuse to do.

I want to know more about this group and why they want immigration to increase when there are plenty of people here already. They want more immigration so bad that they have attacked ICE for simply doing their job, a job people want them to do. Do Allies for Immigration Justice care about the white birth rates being at below replacement levels and the shrinking white demographic? I don't think so because there are plenty of ways to address that without replacing your population with the 3rd world. Allies for Immigration Justice is what anti-white looks like.

Re: “Downtown SLO drops plans for new property district amid backlash

Good, though I'm sure this isn't the last we've heard of privatization gang.
"Our goal as an organization has always been and must remain to present a unified voice for the businesses in the downtown."
Umm I seriously doubt it, I mean I'm sure that's what they tell the IRS. Is that why they want to charge $400k for a job that costs half that? There is zero reason for this organization to exist. There is nothing they do that proper city government can't do. We should be asking ourselves why we need to bring in a private organization to charge us to do what we pay the city to do. The same city that has plenty of money for wage increases.

Re: “Under siege

If the park is such a boon to local communities, then why is it that one of the most depressed local economies in the county is literally the gateway to the park? Oceano, stop letting everyone pi55 on you. Oceano could be the gateway to a pristine dune ecosystem, attracting visitors from around the world, instead of just yahoos from Bumfuckersfield.
