Continued Clean Up in Refugio Oil S...

2015-05-22 07:34 PM

My family was due to picnic at Refugio this weekend. We have a camping reservation in a few weeks. We will file a claim against Plains. I think everyone who could have gone to one of the affected beaches/parks should file a claim. I also think Plains should be required to bring in all new sand to both beaches and keep both beaches seaweed-free for at least two years following this disaster. Both beaches will then be improved. Anyone who owns a business in the So. Coast related to tourism should also file a claim.

When he was in his 20s, a friend of mine was scammed out of $$ after being initiated into the cult by buying one of their fancy biofeedback devices using money borrowed from his parents. (The same device could be built using components from Radio Shack for a few dollars).

When he realized he'd been ripped off and told them he was leaving the organization, he had people stalking him and got regular threatening phone calls and messages, both at home and at work. The continuous harassment only ceased when he changed his phone number and moved to another city and got another job.

Don't have *anything* to do with this criminal scam.

Continued Clean Up in Refugio Oil S...

2015-05-22 06:35 PM

These days, though, no one is talking about the lessons California should learn from Texas. California’s economy is improving, and its budget is finally balanced—partly because of budget cuts and a voter-approved tax hike in 2012, and partly because the stock-market boom has translated into more tax receipts from California’s wealthiest residents (the ones with those high income-tax rates). These changes happen to come as Texas, the nation’s biggest oil-producing state by far, is grappling with a collapse in oil prices, which has depressed the price of a barrel of West Texas Intermediate crude oil to under fifty dollars a barrel for the first time in more than five years. It will be several months before the government publishes figures on G.D.P. and business creation for the period coinciding with the drop in oil prices, but already there are signs of trouble. Michael Feroli, the chief U.S. economist at JPMorgan Chase, said in December, “We think Texas will, at least, have a rough 2015 ahead, and is at risk of slipping into a regional recession.” The Texas budget, too, could be hurt by lost oil and gas taxes.

Prop 13 came about because the state had doubled the taxes and many seniors could have lost their homes. But many others, if not most, could not afford this sudden raise in taxes. The formula worked out to set back the tax amount to the pre -Jarvis time and then have the taxes go up a percentage each year. I doubt that taxpayers were given credit for the two or more years they paid the double tax.

I agree that it does not seem fair that there is a disparity in the taxes of new buyers since 1978, and persons who owned their homes prior to that date. but do figure that most homes have been turned around since then, and just the seniors are iving in them, or have passed them on to their children through Lliving Trusts.
But I do not understand how this subject ties in with Scientology. They are not really a "church",just a demoniacal cult.

You can file Police Reports online. Or, go into the Police station and ask for the forms to file a Police report. Take it home or fill it out there. They will give you a "file #", and get a copy when it's ready ~ usually 10 days before you can pick up a copy of that report. Get the records going. On the Police report, there is a place for you to X if you want the Police to have a "chat" with that person.

Prop. 13 creates great inequity in terms of bearing the load to maintain public services. It is very unfair that people pay such different amounts.

If someone cannot afford to pay, they could be allowed to remain in their home and defer their taxes until death. The estate could then pay the deferred taxes, instead of inheriting it all tax free, while the rest of us have struggled to pay our fair share all along. .

It makes me sick when someone like Rachel Maddow, a one-percenter making $7 million plus a year, is giddy with delight this week because of this tragedy. There was a song some years ago that said something about a "bubble headed beach blond" giving us "dirty laundry"...or something like that. Leave us alone Ms. Maddow and lose the smarmy act.

477P - trespassing is actually a civil offense, no need to prosecute or make any "arrest." Get photos or video and statements from workers on your property that she is coming to talk to them.

Then, take her to small claims and sue for whatever loss (if any) you have incurred.

Calling the police also creates a record of the trespassing. If you call them and file a report, they will talk to her.

The only way you can prosecute someone for trespassing on your property is to catch them in the act and detain them until a police officer comes along to take your citizen's arrest complaint. It's a misdemeanor so the cop has to be a witness to it for him/her to write the complaint. And you have to post NO TRESPASSING signs all over your property as warning.

Get a big dog instead to guard your property and train it to be especially loud to any noises coming from your pal's yard.

This is not a restraining order kind of disturbance. You have to be afraid for your safety to warrant a R.O.

A couple of weeks prior the beach was heavily fouled with oil and tar! No injured wildlife was spotted. I saw a Marine Mammal rescue truck patrolling.

Unfortunately simply calling the police will not work. I used have a stalker and even though I had called the cops twice for him attempting to enter my home, all the police would say was that in order for a restraining order to hold up in court, he would need to be caught in the act. Also, you must pay for the restraining order yourself, which is not the worst part, the worst part is that if the perpetrator refuses to abide by the order, you are not protected unless the police is called again and they show up on time, and by that time, believe me, you could have already been assaulted. In my opinion, handle business yourself once you feel threatened within your own property

You can't just fill out a form for a restraining order. It has to be considered and ordered by the judge and once it is issued, that person's record is irrevocably effected. The person requesting the order needs proof that the other person poses a threat to you or family. You will need evidence to back up your request.

442 is right in a situation like this. A restraining order would only really be helpful if you actually caught your neighbor on your property. In that case, calling the police would be just as effective.

Save your money and just call the cops.

Just do a bit of research for yourself...it's like you were the kid who asked questions to get someone else to do your work for you. Just figure it out yourself.

Robert "Bob" & Patricia "Trish" Duggan who went to UCSB and used to live in Hope Ranch are Scientology's largest ever donors. They are worth over $3.5 billion. Although they only have around 40,000 members money is not a problem. They get both poor and rich memberss like the Duggan's to give them lots of money. Most of their extensive real estate is tax exempt because the are a "church".

Don't forget about plastics. Every time you go to buy a flat of single-use bottled water, ask yourself if the petroleum in that plastic is really worth your convenience. Recycling doesn't really help; the carbon footprint to recycle is almost (some say worse) than what it took to make the bottle in the first place. Get an RO unit and use a metal bottle or reusable plastic one. Quit using liquid hand soap and liquid body wash and go back to bar soap. Don't buy produce in plastic boxes. Eliminate as much plastic as you can. Grow your own produce as much as possible. Personally, I kind of would like to join the Amish. They have the right idea. Oh, and let's start talking about E85 fuel and biomass fuels...why are those not at our pumps? If oil companies knew we'd buy these products, they might start making them available. If your car has a 'Flex Fuel' badge, you can already use ethanol or methanol in addition to gasoline. Let's have that conversation!

Then when we add vehicles into the mix it brings the incidents up dramatically with stopping on the tracks, parking on or near the tracks, and for some reason driving on the tracks. Maybe classes should be held and when finished we get a certificate saying we know how to be around train tracks and real trains whether they be passenger or freight and this nonsense will be stopped.

I'm glad that the truth came out that Plains circumvented the requirement to have automatic shutoff valves on their pipeline. They deserve the harshest penalties by refusing to install the standard technology that would have prevented the spill. The County of SB has had this requirement since 1990, Plains sought to exclude themselves from our County's jurisdiction so no, Plains cannot pretend to be a part of this community. They are carpetbaggers from Texas who fought in court to operate their pipeline cheaply, and carelessly.

People can commute to work via Bart, bus or muni and get to their place of employment within an hour. With the increasing population it will be the only feasible way for society continue since there are already too many cars on the road and freeways can only be widened to so many lanes.

I recently cancelled my ABC Mouse subscription when I realized the CEO is funding the cult as well as attempting to subtlety introduce children to their scam. They also do this with Rehab centers. Many of those referral services are Scientology call centers. The joke is this, you will ALWAYS be referred to Narcanon. Once there, you are not under the care of a doctor and they dangerously detox you with quack methods that have killed peoples children.

This article is about a talk and book signing for a biography of Paulette Cooper by Tony Ortega. I went and have already read my copy of it. It is appalling that Scientology is a tax exempt religion after what they have done to Paulette Cooper. It is a great book, please consider reading it.

266 - thats a false premise. Most people, on account of long and increasing commuting distances, will not find it practical to rely on public transport or bicycles. The average California (one-way) commute is half an hour, and many people do not live (or work) within a reasonable distance of a bus or rail route.

When I lived in LA, I lived in the SF Valley and worked in West Hollywood. I relied on the buses to get to and from work for a 2 weeks period when my car broke down, and it took 4 bus transfers and up to 1.5 hours (3 hour round trip) of my valuable time, *wasted* in commuting. The quality of life took a steep plunge. Nobody will convince anyone that we have to give up our cars. However, the means with which we power them (gasoline) MUST change or we're in the deepest doodoo.

What a load! The men have designed a test that is very difficult for even them to pass to have a reason to weed out the 6000 applicants they get for these highly paid high benefit early retirement jobs.

Have you seen some of those captains they have? Couldn't run a mile to save their lives.

In a reasonable world, we could design a test based on real world skills the firefighters use and that would make the workforce look like the citizenry.

But the mostly white males that make it onto the squad are pretty happy with the way things currently are. If this was LA, a bunch of them would be related to current firefighters....

2015-05-22 11:20 AM

319, I seriously wish people would stop harping ont he fact that oil is used in all facets of industrialization.

Seriously, we know that. You think it makes you look brilliant to mention it, it doesn't. It's common knowledge.

Going to this fact to try and imply that people who advocate for cleaner energy are fools and nothing can ever change is simplistic, defeatist, and miserable. Humanity has the capacity to innovate and will. It's just a question of when and how much we will lose along the way. Rethink your position and either get on board or realize you're just complaining and not doing anything about it.

Clean up response has been inadequate thus far. Their entire profit from last year needs to be forfeited as punishment. Any place the pipeline crosses a culvert outlet to the ocean needs to be protected with automatic shutoff valves.

If we allow them to continue business as usual then we are the fools.

341, I agree, oil is necessary in our society - and to a greater extent than people realize. 10s of thousands of products are made from it, highlighting its versatility. This is all the more reason to *conserve* oil resources, but instead, we're frittering it all away by burning this valuable resource in the billions of automobile engines all around the world.

The technology is now becoming available so as we will not have to indulge in this short-sighted, destructive, heads-in-the-sand, mass-stupidity for much longer, and electric vehicles will eventually take the place of the gasoline power, and solar power and storage batteries become the norm.

Let's hope that the inevitable changeover gets rolling before its too late for all of us.

Unfortunately, without any competition, oil has spilled into a great many parts of our society that were not there even 50 years ago.

That does not mean we should not look for alternatives to reduce it use. Plastics can be made out of many more substances than oil - most of which are cheaper, cleaner and more bio-degradable.

Energy can be produced in more ways than from dirty coal and oil.

The use of oil may never be completely eliminated - but its use can be greatly reduced. It is not an either/or issue - it is a reduction issue.

Ask your service company to switch to it, and then use the water on your plants if you want to do that. BTW, it's also better for you to drink and cook with too.

I had a client who claimed to have only taken cold showers for at least 30 years, since his college days, and hadn't been sick once in those 30 plus years. He attributed that fact to the cold showers.

By the way, you can flush most toilets by pouring water directly into the bowl (instead of the tank). That's pretty much how flushing with the lever works -- gravity pulls water down out of the tank, which then has the inertia to force the water in the bowl down the drain.

I would find out from your service company what the mineral content of your soft water is before deciding what to do with it. A good softener system that recharges with either KCl or even NaCl wont harm plants and the regeneration brine left in the canister after recharge is normally rinsed down the drain (a few gallons at most). The traces of brine left in the valves etc are so diluted moving through the pipes that no harm will come from watering with shower water. Worry more (a little more) about the effects of soaps and shampoo traces.

So lets review all pipelines off our coast and for 5000 ft. inland that could cause this to happen again. Develop new controls and monitoring systems and containment capabilities when ruptures occur. And vigorously investigate the cause of this particular rupture so that it can be prevented in the future.
