Why is it acceptable for this sort of despicable rhetoric not loudly shouted down by the supposedly tolerant, peace loving Left? It is somehow acceptable, now, for Americans to wish death upon each other?

Free speech, this is. Intelligent, enlightened speech? Not so much.

+James Pisano common sense isn't common anymore. It's why we have Democrats that think they're patriotic when they demand the rich pay higher taxes.

The false narrative is partially to blame for the man made drought impacting the residents of California. Do not allow yourself be lied to, and do not allow the liars to benefit from their deception, California. You have been abused by the radical environmental interests for decades. When will enough be enough?
 
This is a textbook example of how the media perpetuates a false narrative based on a phony statistic. Farmers do not use 80 percent of California’s water. In reality, 50 percent of the water that is captured by the state’s dams, reservoirs, aqueducts, and other infrastructure is diverted for environmental causes. Farmers, in fact, use 40 percent of the water supply. Environmentalists have manufactured the 80 percent statistic by deliberately excluding environmental diversions from their calculations.

The statistic is manufactured by environmentalists to distract from the incredible damage their policies have caused.

I'm just saying, I think your ire shouldn't be divided between the Left and the farmers the Left are attacking, and have used as the primary enemy of the State's water resources since the 60s.

This Memorial Day finds America absent many heroes, but still expressing a resolute commitment to defending Liberty.

Much, the price is, for Liberty and Freedom. Some made their sacrifice carrying out their Service's Mission in protection of America's Liberty, as Coast Guard Senior Chief Horne selflessly did in December of 2012 while intercepting drug smugglers off the coast of California. Others, like Signalman First Class Douglas Munro, made their sacrifice defending others fighting for the world's Freedom in the Battle at Guadalcanal during World War II. It is no coincidence that Memorial Day was affirmatively made a Federal Holiday. The price paid in the blood of our brothers and sisters in arms can never be fully repaid. Regardless, our recognition of their sacrifice, and the value of that which they defended makes payment due every day, and especially so tomorrow.

Cherish our heroes; those who have crossed the Bar as they defended Freedom, as you would cherish those you share this day with. Somber though this message may be, their passing helped galvanize the world against tyranny and protect the future for Liberty for generations to come.

This is why appeasement is a failure in foreign policy. The aggressor will always want more than the last sacrifice you've made, and you will eventually have to give up everything.

Loretta Lynch has openly admitted to the Senate that she has no intention of upholding the rule of law. Jeb supporting her confirmation disqualifies him for the senior most law enforcement position in the United States. 
Jeb Bush says that the Senate should confirm the nomination of Loretta Lynch, President Barack Obama’s choice for attorney general. A number of Senate Republicans oppose her nomination. “I think presidents have the right to pick their team,” Bush said, according to reports of his stop at the “Politics and Pie” forum in...

We go to Mahoroba monthly. I'm a HUGE fan of their pizza bun, and I also like the sausage bun. My wife likes the Kobe Cream bun so much we named our dog Kobe. I know... Its weird. I don't really understand, either, but she's Chinese, and I'm still learning, even after 10 years together, about the cultural idiosyncrasies. So far we've had three dogs named after food. Anyway, the baked goods at this joint are awesome, and everyone should get up on this!

Todd, the GM for the HI San Clemente, was VERY engaged with pretty much every part of my stay. I traveled on business. The network connectivity for the room I was in was excellent as far as speed, but the WIFI signal wasn't strong. It didn't impact my usage, but I was concerned about whether or not my smaller devices (phone, tablet) were going to be able to connect with their smaller antennae. No worries. Todd opened the restaurant last week. I had the pleasure of sitting at the bar and talking to him and some of his very interesting patrons last night, and let me tell you, I was very happy for the company. Todd seems genuinely thrilled to come to work. I don't know what sort of job a chain hotel GM is, but I can imagine its not very rewarding unless you get to know your guests. Todd showed he had the desire to not only engage you one on one, but also, he showed he had the "give a damn" attitude that I don't often see in my many travels. Good on ya, Todd. Your hotel was a gem and I WILL stay there again!

If you're a working traveler, don't stay here. The internet connection is $9.95 for one device unless you're a Gold Level Hilton Honors member, and it's very slow (<1mbps). Cell service on Verizon is poor. The room was great, but the ability to work made my stay not worth the Per Diem.

The roll selection wasn't very wide, but the rolls were very good, and the fish was fresh. The owner looked to have been a sushi chef for a long time, and most of what he was doing was from muscle memory, a sign of a seasoned veteran of the craft. All in all, a very enjoyable experience.

This is a great place to stop for the night if you have work to do. Internet connection is fast and stable. Room is small, but its clean, and the bed is comfortable. Verizon has 4G in this area, but the connection wasn't very good. Internet connection in my room was good on wifi, and the room is wired, as well, though I would have had to have my own cable or would have been required to have a $25 deposit for a 6ft piece of CAT5e. Walking distance to Outback, a sushi place, and a bowling alley that has 40 beers on tap. Not bad!

The service was friendly and quick to greet. The beer is fair to middling, but the IPA shows some promise. The IPA's afterbite was heavy, but it wasn't too much of a kick in the mouth that I didn't want to drink more. The porter was brewed with barley that was over burnt, and the flavor is run over by the smoke all over the mouth. The Blueberry Ale is a joke. I don't know that I would lead a sampler with it, but DTB did. The unfiltered wheat has an alcohol content so low its report on the sampler graphic may have been the result of a messed up test (3.5%). It also had a banana flavor, which I am not sure should ever be associated with beer. The lemon wedge didn't help. The honey blonde ale is adequate, and serves as a good pairing for the fries and club wrap I had for dinner. I say fries and wrap because the side for my dinner was bigger than the main course. Nit a bad experience, but I've had better when on the road. Paso Robles isn't the smallest place I go to regularly, but the town has a small town feel, and this brewery carries that off easily.
