Good-Bye, Columbus

I got a feeling that you're gonna hear from us

ok so we got a dunce speaking at the Reagan Ranch Center and he's got a book..and he thinks that public schools are indoctrinating kids into progressivism...funny, I was just trying to learn algebra at SBJHS!

but this Columbus Day stuff must be liberal propaganda from teachers with an agenda.. a progressive agenda..the Pinta, the Nina, the Santa Maria...illegals!!!
of course the Reagan Ranch Center is owned by Wendy as are/is the Young Miss American Foundation and Wendy loves to invite all these Republican losers to speak at the luncheons!

lots of John Birch type Republicans think this way about public education but it is total crap...I went to private schools and public schools...both had good and bad points but it all boils down to teachers and girls in class you are trying to impress...if the teacher is good, then you'll learn something...if the teacher is bad, you get bored, not indoctrinated...

most of this conservative nonsense is about public schools vs Christian schools...believe me, in Christian schools you'll get indoctinated into a twisted version of Jesus public schools, you may be encouraged to expand your mind by reading about Islam, Buddhism, Catholicism and so forth...this is a threat to the churchmouse Christians...the same ones who are running amok in the about dysfunction!! geez...I don't want any of these nutjobs close to the presidency

and this guy, Larry Reed, is really concerned with income equality and redistribution of wealth..of course there are no such issues..this is something made up by Fox News...and parroted by their puppets, or parrots....

Reed is a nobody with nefarious connections to something called the Foundation for Economic Education..they mix up capitalism with religion but Jesus was a socialist...

from an interview, Reed says: Where my faith does play a part in economics is in the area of what’s right and what’s wrong. My understanding of Christian principles about human nature and proper behavior leads me to appreciate the uniqueness and preciousness of each individual. It leads me to oppose excessive concentrations of earthly power in any mortal hands. Christian principles call for honesty, humility, patience, respect for life and property, self-discipline and voluntary interaction over brute force. They argue definitively against cheating people through currency debasement, redistributing their wealth through taxation, or pretending that a handful of "experts" with power can or should plan the lives of everybody else. My Christian principles tell me that reforming the world begins and ends with individual self-reform and cannot be achieved by "enlightened" planners pushing the rest of us around.

The Eighth and Tenth Commandments against coveting and stealing by themselves should invalidate most of what the federal government does these days. "Thou Shalt Not Steal" is followed by a period, not a qualifier. It does not say, "Thou Shalt Not Steal except under the following conditions: the other guy has more than you do, you really want it, you’re absolutely sure you can spend it better than the guy who earned it, or if a politician is available to steal it on your behalf."


WTF is this crazy-talk! the Constitution, Article 1 Section 8 says the Congress shall have the power to lay and collect America, the Constitution rules, not the bible

and the irony here as I've said many, many, many, many, many times before is Wendy would never have become wealthy unless Craig McCaw redistributed his money to her via a divorce settlement!!

the Reagan Ranch Center and the this not right-wing phony Christian propaganda indoctrination??

Sixteen Reasons

Why I (why I) love you. (One) the way you hold my hand (Two) your laughing eyes (Three) the way you understand (Four) your secret sighs....

it's October and things can get a little spooky which is why I like it..Indian Summer (relax Chumash) still with I went outside Sunday and whooo, it's some groceries amd headed off to that area on Highway 150 on the road to Ojai that I love so much...saw some buzzards circling over head...

so I'm looking around for the crash site where the Carp guy went over the side...then I see it...looks like a pretty clean slide down the hill but definitely can see where the brush was cleared by the van..or mini-van....James Dean crashed in a Porsche...

so I'm trying to put the scenerio together and it looks like the Carp guy planned the spot to go over the side of the hill and maybe on the way down, shot himself...I don't think he shot himself while on the actual road..perhaps he was thinking of others...sounds like the kinda guy he was...made sure he was off the roadway before pulling the trigger...hope he's got some peace now

ok so the SB city council candidates usually respond to media questions and those questions are usually lame...unions, pensions, homeless and stuff like that...some get ten questions some get sixteen

but I got 5 questions for the candidates too! and I want honest answers not a bunch of bullshit

Lucy, Cathy and Cristina (oohh, me likes Cristina!!)

Q#1: how do you feel about the News-Press having thousands of child porn images on the company computer and then blaming an ex-editor who Wendy was suing? did they plant the images?

Q#2: do you think Craig McCaw redistributed his wealth to Wendy via divorce settlement?

Q#3: do you think Nipper would have a radio show, a cooking show and be co-publisher of the News-Press without Wendy's money?

Q#4: how many alcoholics work at the News-Press?

Q#5: Cristina, would you like to date me??

(Five) the way you comb your hair
(Six) your freckled nose
(Seven) the way you say you care
(Eight) your crazy clothes

That's just half of sixteen reasons why I (why I) love you

Unknown Legend

she rides a Harley Davidson

well, I waited too long to get Neil Young tickets for the concert at the SB Bowl, and Neil is definitely a legend...but alot of Neil's fans are potheads, so maybe it's best I dint get tickets.. I want to see Neil do the songs, not get high from second-hand pot smoke!! plus it'll probably be 100 dgrees in SB Saturday night..but still, I don't want to hear about Monsanto, I wanna hear about Cinnamon Girl!!

I've seen some legends...Aretha, Brian Wilson, Ringo, Hillman, Frampton...but to try and pass off some of these local guys,these jingle writers as legends is the Granada, they  honored a guy named Barry DeVorson as a legend...he did write the vapid little ditty "It's Christmas Time Again in Santa Barbara" a puke inducing tune if I ever heard one plus it's knock-off of Merle Haggard's "Okie from Muskogee" which is a great song

but Devorson wrote some theme songs to SWAT and some soaps that only brain-dead people could watch...Soupy Sales is a legend, not Barry Devorzon..

now some folks (NEWS-PRESS) were complaining about tax money being used to aid SB Police Chief Cam Sanchez but that's nonsense...a bad use of taxpayer funds is illegal wars, bailing out private industry like banks and insurance companies, and corporate welfare...

sending a cop to get the chief's daughter Victoria at LAX after her mom, dad and husband were in a serious car accident is ok..not a problem..the right thing to do..using the cops to constantly babysit drunks in the SB bar that's a waste of taxpayer money

speaking of the News-Press, the Montecito Journal provided details of the Nipper's pop-up niteclub was horrendous..old saggy broads prancing around like they were 30 years old, old guys, Minutemen, like DeVorzon trying to cash in on a last bit of fame....and Nipper's pop-up had a place where they could go outside and smoke cigars...cigars???

the only time I would smoke a cigar is if I was in Cuba, at a real nightclub, with a sultry Cuban lady, drinking Cuban liquor....and pondering Hemingway

I mean if you're gonna do it, do it right

Sunset Grill

see the basket people walk around and mumble

so I'm checking the social media sites for news, clues, crimes, sexual opportunites and the like and I see that Santa Barbara View is taking a hiatus...or is the conservative experiment that tried to keep Santa Barbara Santa Barbara calling it quits? did the attempted hookup with the booze-riddled Sentinel freebie doom the View?? did they run out of homeless people??

Santa Barbara View Is Taking A Hiatus

After ten years and over 7,000 posts, Santa Barbara View is taking a hiatus! We will continue to post and engage our 20,000 Friends and Followers on Facebook and Twitter so join us on social media


a hiatus..hmmmm...Meriam-Webster: a period of time when something (such as an activity or program) is stopped...

stopped...hmmmm..why'd they stop? money issues? politics....maybe rehashing Lanny's editorials from the News-Press weren't cutting it..and most of the posts lately were about sunrises and sunsets...

and longer writing crybaby rants on the SB View while she campaigns to beat Cathy Murrillo..but you and I know Lucy won't win...she's a proven liar and that silly claim about an attack on her staff by the Team Murrillo was cuckoo!!

now I'm no Nostradamus, but I think we're seeing the sunset of Santa Barbara View that leaves the News-Press (totally gross), EdHat (take this broken server), the Indie (gag me with a spoon, Marianne and Joe) and Noozhawk (squeaky churchmouse conservatives) to get news and stories..oh, and me of course but I'm just a guy with a computer...

all these media outlets to satisfy our need to know and now the Santa Barbara View is gone...

one less fly on the wall

was a sunny day

not a cloud was in the sky, not a negative word was heard

I went to the Goodland for some stuff....haven't been in awhile...what a nice sunny day in Goleta!

I head to Walgreens..frankly, I'm sick of CVS and Rite Aid in Carp..the checkout gals are weird and talkative...but Walgreens is great..everything I need, good prices and efficient checkout girl...I'll be back...the parking lot was lovely with trees and a species of eucalyptus I don't think I've seen before..healthy and gorgeous! and right next to Walgreens looks like a mosque is being built....praise Allah!!

so I head on over to the Magnolia Center for a haircut from my homeboys...Goleta is nice..simple, uncrowded, lots of open space and plenty of homes and place to live..gas is $2.93/gal....

and there's even a real pumpkin the mountain view can't be beat...I like it here in the Goodland

then I head into Santa Barbara and the trouble begins...the Castillo underpass is still wet after the new pavers were installed...maybe they should have pavered the whole freakin street!!

SB is crowded and touristy
Pretentious by the Sea..and there's another big ocean cruise liner...I thought the pupose of the USS Gridley's visit was to blow these Princess ships outta the water!

then I get some coffee and a paper and the News-Press is going after Chief Sanchez again, probably for Lucy's benefit..but first was a story about the union's complaints against the chief, then a story about the chief getting into an accident near Carpinteria on his way to LA to pick up his lovely daughter Victoria..Victoria was a KEYT reporter and she moved to Colorado...

but Scott seems to think that the chief got special treatment because three cops showed up at the accident scene..and one went to pick up Victoria..well yeah...her dad was in a serious don't tell her to take a cab home from LAX, you provide comfort to her!!

of course Scott is fucking crazy- a one-watt brain- and only writes these opinions for Wendy's sake..Wendy is Scott's mommy...but we know that ever since Travis Armstrong got busted for DUI, driving the wrong way up a one-way street..ever since the SB cops busted him, Wendy has held a grudge against the SB police dept, esp Cam Sanchez...Travis was Wendy's pet gay Indian but I don't know what that's got to do with drunk, you get busted if the cops catch you...

and living by the highway, I've seen many accidents from fender benders to injuries..they always send three or four cops, a fire engine and an ambulance if needed...that's normal..that's why we pay taxes for first responders to respond..naturally the bill should be sent to the accident causer

then of course the Peter Lance DUI fiasco and the Judge Brian Hill mistakes.. and the drugs going thru the News-Press is on the record..and the child porn on Wendy's computer (still waiting for justice)

the News-Press has been covering for drunks since day one..

I think it's about time they stop..Wendy Scott and should be ashamed of yourselves because I'm certainly ashamed of you...again

For What It's Worth

there's somethin' happenin' here....

when I was a kid I had a transistior radio..a red transistor radio...I'd listen to it from Boston to Illinois to's the 60s and I'd go to bed and put the radio under my pillow and listen to KIST..two songs I remember distinctly played and lulled me to sleep.. "The Beat Goes On" and "For What It's Worth" ... loved that spooky guitar

these songs had a few things in common..they were excellent and they were not love songs..they were social commentary songs...the 60s music was a mix of rock, pop, folk, blues, soul and then FM radio came was a good time..and to this day I love the little transistor radios...I got a few...and I'm a fan of Sonny and Cher and Buffalo Springfield!

so I heard that Jane Fonda was honored for her acting career or whatever, and some guys are still calling her Hanoi Jane for going to North Vietnam during the war...Jane is not a traitor and protesting America's stupid involvement in that civil war was a duty...took some balls to do what she did!

most Vietnam vets know they were duped... a war was not declared against Vietnam so what the fuck were we doing there? oh yeah, commies!!

geez..and then we attacked Iraq many years later..why...oh yeah, terrorists!

and we just bombed a hospital in Afghanistan! Obama hasn't explained or apologized yet..just sent out some flunkie commander for some more propaganda!!

I swear to God we've had some idiots making decisions after WWII, which was a justified war..FDR declared war on Japan after Pearl Harbor....If Jane had lunch with Hitler or Japan's Supreme Commander, then I'd call her a traitor..

but Vietnam was a waste....57000 dead soldiers..crazy American part of the psychological warfare, the American military dropped little transistor radios from planes into North Vietnam to entice them into defecting to South Vietnam!! the radios were pretuned to certain frequencies that told of the evils of the gooks!!

"Specialist Five Clyde Gaidosh, the air operations NCO of Co A, 8th PSYOP Battalion in Nha Trang, Vietnam from 1969-70 recalls dropping small portable radios that could only receive the Chieu Hoi (Open Arms) station. He recalled that the radios were about 5 inches high by 4 inches wide and about 1 or 2 inches thick. The ones he dropped were a bright yellow. Although he is not sure after 35 years, he believes that they ran on a 9 volt battery and were packed in a plastic waterproof padded bag. He recalls that the small parachutes were about 18 inches to 2 feet across. The radios were dropped from helicopters for pin-point targets and fixed wing aircraft for larger targets"

I'm sure American soldiers got a hold of those little radios and tuned them back to lots of Hendrix...

but we were fighting little gooks in the jungle and in war, all humanity ceases... all is fair in love war and politics...and we all watched the war on TV..the My Lai massacre..oh that was a proud moment for the American military I'm sure...

but you have to kill in wars which is why we should go to war only when necessary...Vietnam was undeclared war and Americans got fed up with it...President Johnson used the Tonkin Resolution (North Vietnam patrol boats allegedly fired on US war ships but a Senate investigation later found that untrue) as a justification to use massive US troops...but it was a losing proposition from day one...

chickenhawks and rightwingers will keep pissing on Hanoi Jane...maybe it makes them feel better to dump their fears on her...

and the real traitors keep getting us into these illegal foreign wars..and they even wear little American flags on their smart blue blazers!

the beat goes on

Ride Captain Ride

upon your mystery ship
