Re: “Step outside of the echo chamber

The problem with Col. Fonzi is that he has become THE conservative voice in SLO County, appearing in the Atascadero News and elsewhere. Really, are there not any younger or factually informed conservatives in our county that the NT could add into the mix?

Re: “The light of an alternative shines bright

Well, knock me over with a feather!!! A thorough, clear, carefully reasoned, fact-based and forward-thinking response to the potential threat of energy disablement by natural disasters. Thank you, Mr. Aunger. Al Fonzi's critique, however, couldn't resist a dose of the rhetorical equivalent of fentanyl. He/it is ever thus.

Re: “Dear New Times

Roger's points are well-said. Surely there are informed and thoughtful, fact-based conservative or libertarian voices in our county -- our local equivalent of the NYT's Ross Douthat, Bret Stephens and David Brooks who are independent voices. By contrast, Col. Fonzi is a former county Republican & Tea Party operative, and remains influential in their highly partisan efforts.

Re: “We need discussion

The suspicion of collusion merited a special counsel investigation because Russia's GRU and its "troll farms" INTERFERED in the 2016 election. This raised alarms especially since Trump endorsed the criminal activity of Wikileaks, i.e. the theft of emails. Theft is a crime.

Further, Christopher Arend's so-called hoax produced 37 individual indictments, including guilty pleas and jail time for a number of Trump ASSOCIATES.

Re: “Let's hide the evidence?

Thank you, Istar Holliday for laying out the full picture of the corruption that runs through many of Trump's associates, and were revealed via Robert Mueller's team of investigators. I commented on Glen de St. Jean's pro-Trump letter last week, showing him as a participant in Santa Maria's militarist sub-culture and active in veteran's groups. It is not uncommon for such associations to come with authoritarian leanings. (I assume in your 3rd paragraph you mean "authoritarian" instead of authoritative.)

Older white men like St. Jean (he is listed at 71 years old) are the prime audience for Rupert Murdoch's now Trump-state "news" network at FOX, where the the fears and resentments of this group are stoked by its right wing personalities who, by the way, were never actual journalists. The struggle to nip white fascist tendencies in the bud before they blossom into authoritarian poison ivy is the task at hand!
