Re: Updates to sea level rise policy adopted by Coastal Commission (issue Dec. 14-27)
The “less-than-specks” agenda
- The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
- The sun is a ball of fire that controls the climates of all its planets.
- The earth is one of the sun’s planets.
- The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
- Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Here is the truth it is cold in the winter and warm in the summer.

Who will look into this?
The County allegedly has given a Power of Attorney to Palmer, Tellefsen (LA Developer) for Public Land. Yet no one can produce a copy of it. Somebody needs to look into the dirty dealings of Ventura County Krieger/Zaragoza, now Sandoval.
Trying to allow their Developer Buddies to SUE the tax payers for their Public Land.
Someone please look into this.
Re: California Fishing License: Two More States Adopt 12-Month System (issue Nov. 30-Dec. 13)
Can the state magic a right into a privilege?
California is not willing to change their policy because the right to fish in California is written into the State’s constitution. No license is required, yet they legislated the privilege in anyways charging a fee. See the Article 1 Section25 of the Cal Constitution. Furthermore, in accordance with Murdock v. Pennsylvania 319 U.S. 105 (1943), the State cannot turn a “right” into a privilege and charge a fee. With the advent of social media and this information going viral, the State is unwilling to shake that tree for fear of disturbing the hornets’ nest rather than harvesting more fruit (fees). IMHO
Re: Finding generosity and hope amid tragedy (issue Nov. 30-Dec. 13)
The world could use more stories like these …
This was indeed a heartwarming, charitable response to a local crisis. It showed, yet again, how giving and quick to respond to those in need that most boaters are. In fact, I think there is something in the DNA of many boaters, that compels them to not hesitate to help their fellow man, on or off the water. Mark and his YAG non-profit, are among the best of the best, and a true local California treasure – with a worldwide outreach.
Readers should check out his http://www.yachtaidglobal.org website to learn more about this amazing charity, that succeeds over and over again in getting critical relief supplies into some of the hardest hit, and most difficult to reach, areas in the world. Kudos to Mark, Howard, Bill and all who sprung into action in Malibu. I never tire reading stories like this one!

Re: Capital improvement projects begin to enhance Oceanside Harbor’s amenities (Dec. 14-27)
Oceanside did not drop the ball
Thanks for the nice article. As a future note, the harbor and the city do not apply for the dredging permit. That permit is solely the responsibility of the Army Corps. The Army Corps did make all of the appropriate permit applications this past spring, however, the Regional Water Quality Board requested additional information after the permit was received. That created an additional delay. Since Oceanside does not allow dredging past Memorial Day, Manson Construction had to skip us and head to another contract they had. I just want to make sure the public understands the City of Oceanside did nothing wrong. Thanks.
