Re: “SLO seeks solutions for idling rideshare cars downtown

The CalPoly students often forget that those appendages attached to their bodies are legs. Im an Uber/Lyft driver. The riders for the most part are very respectful and courteous; but too often they insist on being dropped off and picked up exactly in front of their destination/location so that dont have to walk a few feet to their bar of choice. . They leave the doors open, exit on the side of on going traffic and too often keep you waiting as they say their long good byes to their bros or simply forget that they have a ride waiting.
A designated pick and drop off area would certainly be appreciated, but I doubt it would be used as it might require the rider to actually walk a few more feet.

Re: “People's Self Help Housing is creating a support program to empower Latina women seeking higher education

Moke, I think I'm in agreement if I understand your comment correctly.
Your comment makes me think about the meme of diversity today and how contradictory it is to actual diversity. True diversity would mean protecting the sovereignty of the worlds diverse ethnic groups not blending them all together. I think the people pushing diversity onto the West are actually seeking the opposite, a homogenized atomized rootless mass with no loyalties to anything other than base level individual interests, the perfect consumer cog. Another thing once notices in diverse countries despite the increase in negative social indicators like violence etc, is that people still tend to stay within their groups. America hasn't blended, it's become a checkerboard of ethnic districts, this is very distinct when looking at demographic maps at all levels of granularity. I think this is why we're seeing such a dramatic push by our global overlords in advertising and media pushing the concept that ethnicity is just an unimportant social construct that is outdated. If you were an alien listening in on our TV broadcasts you would think that most families and businesses were made up of a perfect mix of races and genders. The people that create public opinion have put this narrative on overdrive in the last few decades. I wonder why it needs to be promoted so heavily?

Re: “Dispensary can continue to operate over dance studio's objections, judge rules

"Irrational"... Rationalism is a crcle jrk and can mean any thing to any one at any time, which I think is the crux of our post modern society in general. It's not that the store is hidden, it's that it exists there in the first place.
I don't think alcohol should be so encouraged either, and the porn shops and internet sites should all be shutdown tbh. Thank Clinton for that one. But hey, that's what a so called rational "as long as it's between two consenting adults" society looks like, porn and drug shops wherever there is a shekel to be made. No higher values than the economic.

Re: “ALS hasn't stopped Devin Ward from contributing towards a cure

My ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) symptoms started out with a "foot drop" on my left foot. From there my left leg lost all muscle tone and the entire left leg muscles are gone. Also my fingers and thumbs "contract" at times. Left arm loses muscle tone too. My family doctor said there is no cure for ALS, I was just living unhappy life till I saw a blog talking about Best Health Herbal Centre. So many people said positive things about their herbal product which I dont believe at first. I showed my daughter what I saw online about their product and my daughter decided we shall give it a try. Few days later she purchased two bottle of ALS herbal remedy which they said I will use for only six weeks. My life changed automatically after six weeks of applying the herbal remedy as instructed. All my symptoms was terminated completely and am now living ALS FREE ..
All Thanks to Best Health Herbal Centre for their good work in peoples life For more details about their herbal product visit their Homepage www .besthealthherbalcentre. c om

Re: “Dispensary can continue to operate over dance studio's objections, judge rules

No, that was not the argument, you missed the core of the argument, which is that the two dispensaries cannot be detected as having anything to do with cannabis. The windows are blacked out, and the word "cannabis" (or any equivalent word) is not on the building, so no child - or anyone else - could be "corrupted" by the store, since they cannot know what it is.

So, the LAWSUIT's argument of children being corrupted by being "nearby" is nonsense.

The alchohol and porn stores NOT having the same standards was just to point out that cannabis is having to deal with HIGHER standards than any other business. The people suing are not suing the liquor store. Why not, if they care about their children being corrupted? Because their viewpoint is IRRATIONAL. It's just an unthinking dislike of something they do not understand very well.

Re: “Dispensary can continue to operate over dance studio's objections, judge rules

But muh alcohol and porn are easily accessible to children, checkmate! Nice logical fallacy there. Yea because we've degenerated that far we might as well just throw our hands in the air and get rid of the few remaining standards we still have.

Re: “Water rates factor into race for San Miguel CSD seats

anyone responsible for the 200% increase in water and sewer rates should be replaced. There ARE other solutions and failure to come up with a fair increase should be grounds for termination.

Re: “Dispensary can continue to operate over dance studio's objections, judge rules

If I took a random person, dropped them off in the parking lot, and told them I would give them $1000 if they could find the Cannabis store, I would never have to pay out. There is NO evidence of which door it is. The windows are opaque, you cannot see ANYTHING from outside. The sign says "NHC" and the word Cannabis is nowhere on the building.

There is no possible way that any children would have any way of knowing anything about the storefront, so they could not be corrupted in any way.

Note that there is a liquor store within very easy walk of the Dance Academy, children can walk inside, and see a FAR MORE DANGEROUS drug than cannabis. That drug - alcohol - is advertised with posters on the outside of the liquor store.

Note that the "Diamond Adult Store" on Grand Avenue has adult items in the storefront window.

In contrast, the Cannabis stores are only noticeable if you happen to know the address, otherwise you probably could not find a cannabis store in Grover Beach. The lawsuit is complete nonsense.

Not only whites, considering how white SLO truly is. Not that I am defending Latinas but there are other minority groups to keep in consideration.

Re: “People's Self Help Housing is creating a support program to empower Latina women seeking higher education

This is racist. Once whites aren't a majority anymore will they be allowed to have special whites only programs?

Re: “Blow-up at SLO Democrats meeting highlights party division

Is there video of the SLO democrats during the Trump victory? The best part about the Trump win was all the delicious salt! The tears of the democrats were even better than pink Himalayan salt! But seriously folks, they shouldn't have been selling out the working class and all the post boomer generations. If people can't afford a home and to raise a family then they have every right to flip the game board over and reset the system.

Re: “Harborwalk Plaza moves closer to being developed in Morro Bay

LoL "moving forward" I got tired of hearing that phrase working the cubicle life, anyways that's not so important. Hopefully the computer simulation of the harbor doesn't mean the development will actually look like a storage unit complex. I love Morro Bay and with the right planning the boardwalk could be an even nicer place to visit.

Re: “Creston landowners voice qualms about Paso water management

Why were the landowners skeptical of the data? Had they taken their own measurements that differed from the basin measurements, or did they just not want to acknowledge the severity of the situation?

Re: “SLO seeks solutions for idling rideshare cars downtown

Those complaining about parking are ignoring the fact that riders free up parking spaces by taking ride-sharing services in the first place.

Great! Atascadero's downtown area is welcoming and comfortable. I hope they get even better with this cooperation between politicians and business owners.
