Re: “The Endangered Species Act hasn't fulfilled its promise

A Trumpian view of science: The problem has nothing to do with horrifying levels of unnecessary pollution, overfishing and unethical operators --and 1% of scientists say it isn't climate change-- so the blame must fall on the fish and marine mammals. Right?

They poop too much.

Re: “Call a spade a spade

Mr Salemi, did you seriously just call the first African-American president in history --the one Trump lied about in his racist birther claims after he knew it was a lie-- a "flap-eared baboon?" I don't know if anyone has informed you, but common decency prohibits the enthusiastic support of racist belief systems in the public sphere.

Re: “The trouble with alcohol

The bigotry in society directed at "illicit" drug users will be remembered by future generations as one of the darkest moments in American history. It is an enduring indictment of the criminal justice system and law enforcement, which has arrogantly used this tool to undermine, discredit, and destroy whole communities of people they hate. It is an indictment of the education system, who foolishly allowed cops into our classrooms to indoctrinate their children on hateful Drug War propaganda. It is an indictment of the medical community, that happily hooked kids on Ritalin & Methadone for profit and refused to study the benefits of cannabis. It is an indictment of Baby Boomer parenting, which was so terrified that they couldn't even be bothered to do their research on addiction. And it is an indictment of our government for-bribery, which has failed to represent the interests of their constituents over vested interests and promoted the anti-science approach to drug policy that has resulted in our opioid epidemic killing tens of thousands of victims while they pontificate.

Re: “Al Fonzi forgets his Christian values and fellow Americans

Roberta and Al Fonzi both gave the same pathetic excuses: the armory's admittedly "worthless" designation as a "drug free" zone, whatever that means, its geographic proximity to the schools, and its overwhelming cost.

First of all, the City of Atascadero can EASILY afford the $35,000 (plus change) price tag.

They spent $48.6m for the Fine Arts and Middle School Project, $1.4m for a skate park, another $505k for the Joy Park addition to the CPCC, $320k for the Zoo Garden Event Center, and over $3m for the Centennial Bridge and Plaza Project. Not included in this spending spree is the exorbitant cost of the City Hall renovations, which totaled $48m and required millions in FEMA grant money, and the the city (Amanda) couldn't even provide me with a grand total for the Colony Park Community Center cost.

Even the McNamara Realty Performing Arts Center for Profiteers generated $370,000 in local donation money despite their unseemly local reputation as a slum lord with a history of ethics problems.

According to Al Fonzi, our perceived "severe" drug issue is located at the Sunken Gardens, which is right next door to the schools; he didn't mention that little tidbit. After research, it does not appear that any of these suddenly-concerned business & education leaders have hired any form of security or use fenced properties to protect the children from this imagined threat. The reason? There is no real threat.

Furthermore, the location of the armory is geographically located JUST on the other side of the schools, opposite the Sunken Gardens and closer to the police & fire stations, so it does not increase the proximity of the Sunken Gardens homeless population to the schools because they're the same distance: RIGHT NEXT DOOR.

So if the Sunken Gardens is the same distance as the armory to the schools, and closer to law enforcement, how exactly is the perceived threat increased in any way?
