Re: “Economy of servants

We do need more manufacturing jobs. There are more jobs in alternative energy than there are in oil. Oil is just one of many energy sources, what we need is something to do with all that energy.

Re: “What's up with Caltrans?

Totally agree.

Here's the one that's bugged me. The Y at 41 and 46, near Cholame. That spot has been deadly for decades, but instead of fixing that, they pave the triangles in the 101 off ramps through Atascadero?

Who decides what cal trans works on?

Re: “False narratives redux

Al, this is pretty much the same thing you said a couple weeks ago, but better written actually. Yet, strangely enough, you still seem to miss your own point: let the experts do their job.

You complain about the tribalism that is common among lefty organisations like the Sierra Club, yet commit the exact same sin of tribalism, just in reverse.

The steps required to combat co2 emissions, would not hurt the fight against wildfires.

TL;DR: Remove the political partisan element, and let the experts lead the way.

Re: “Life in America

This more of the same sullbhit. It's coming from both sides. Complaining about imaginary slights and questioning the others morality, instead of discussing policy.

This stupid game is being orchestrated from the top, because it keeps them in power. That's all they care about. Divide and conquer. I wish there were no political parties. (I know, keep dreaming)

What we need is campaign finance reform, term limits, and shortened campaign season.

Re: “False narratives

Al, not sure what your point is. It's true that climate change might not be to blame for these fires, but more hot weather certainly won't help.

Here's an idea for your next commentary, discuss the downsides to switching to electric powered vehicles and renewable power generation.

Re: “A nauseating stench

If you can invent a smell-proof fence you could be a billionare. LOL

Re: “Chorro and Marsh

I can't figure out why so many people are afraid of tall buildings. While walking down the sidewalk, what is the difference between a 2 story building and a 7?
