What California's Orca Bill Would Mean For San Diego's SeaWorld

SeaWorld is not an education center. It's not a marine research facility. It's not a conservation group. It's a for-profit corporation that relies on animal cruelty to make money. Why don't they use their full name one all their signs and propaganda:

SeaWorld Entertainment Inc.
On the NYSE they are known as SEAS.

Why is this relevant? Because SeaWorld executives don't have welfare of animals on ocean ecology as their number one goal. Their number one goal is to make sure shares of SEAS sell for as much as possible, and if doing this requires treating animals poorly, by God SeaWorld will. And they have.

I hope we see this horror park shut it's doors in San Diego in the very near future. Let the Orca's that have already been victimized live out their lives in larger sea pens, and most importantly put a stop to the cycle of abuse that SeaWorld has been involved in for generations of Orcas with their breeding programs.

I will do whatever it takes to support this bill and agree with moneil2014, we need to let the decision makers know the citizens of San Diego don't support this type of animal cruelty in our back yard.

Supporters Ask Filner To Resign Over Sexual Harassment Claims

I want more evidence too. Not only are the 3rd-party accusers not revealing the parties alleging misconduct, they aren't even telling us what the conduct is! "Sexual harassment" is a broad term these days, and can range in seriousness from telling an off-color joke to groping someone or threatening job consequences without sexual favors. I at least want to know what kind of alleged sexual harassment is at issue here before passing judgment.

Frye says the accusers want to avoid a media circus, yet she is orchestrating a press conference? She is engaging in double-speak. And based on her quote, these women are people she knows well, I'm guessing city employees who were around when she was on the City Council and who remain there today. Frye left office in a rare state in politics today - scandal-free and well respected. She better have something tangible here otherwise she is putting her good and honest reputation on the line.

No Blue Angels For Miramar Air Show (+Video)

We need that space for an airport. Miraramar should be moved and combined with Camp Pendleton. I know the haters will come out and throw stones at me, but come on, this base can't stay there forever.
San Diego is growing and it's becoming increasingly dangerous/inconvenient to have a base located there.

U-T San Diego Political Ads Don't Add Up

I'm very tired of people getting away with crimes because they are rich and have political connections. I agree with the first comment in this thread, Manchester and Lynch need to be prosecuted and put behind bars. The Union Tribune is a major city paper, this should be getting national attention. I am repulsed by this and will never pick up a copy of that publication as long as Manchester and Lynch continue to defile it.

Water Gun Fight Spills Into San Diego Mayor's Race

So both DeMaio and his lover are tied to this massacre of the lily pond, but they are attacking Filner for even mentioning it?
Are the Demaios really that naive and unaware about how politics works? DeMaio would not even blink before attacking Filner if he had an even remote connection to something like this but since the roles are reversed he is going to throw one of his big-boy tantrums. DeMaio has always been one to dish it out but he can't take it.

DeMaio Warns Stations To Stop Running Negative Ad

Is this how DeMaio is going to handle difficult situations as Mayor? Whine and pout and lawyer up against anyone he doesn't agree with? Oh, poor baby. Poor little crybaby. No thanks, I already voted and the bubble in front of Carl DeMaio's name was not filled in. With all the problems at city hall the last thing we need is a big cry baby taking over.

Military Moms Breastfeeding In Uniform Create Controversy

I can tell through several things in the last four posts that argue_honestly, jay_mee, and vintage_user are the same person. One spammer who is too immature to understand breastfeeding.

KPBS Hosts Mayoral Debate

Filner and Fletcher had the strongest performances.

Bonnie needs to drop out, she seemed the weakest with no real vision or coherent vision.

DeMaio, in typical snake oil salesman form, appeared polished and coherent, but when one analyzes his policies one is struck with a spine-chilling terror over just how dangerous he is.

Fletcher referred to DeMaio as wanting San Diego to become the "Wisconsin of the West" and boy did he hit the nail on the head. Dirty Carl is a carbon copy of Scott Walker, two extremists, two anti-union fanatics who have no problem giving their private special interests favors (like DeMaio's convention center handout of public money to the hotel industry).

Wisconsin residents are now having to recall their fanatic nut job. Let's not let it get that far in San Diego by electing crazy DeMaio. Let's stop Dirty Carl before he is able to do huge damage and ruin our city.
