Re: “Fast food fight

@ Mark from Atlanta
"Property tax rebates for xeriscaping."
Why? If an owner has enough money for landscaping they have enough to xeriscape. Besides, you want them to use grey water so why xeriscape?

"Free rain barrel instillation."
What rain? That's the problem - most of Southern CA is a desert. Take Santa Monica for instance. They only get on average 13" of rain a year, and for 8 consecutive months of the year they average well less than 1" a month. Rain barrels are of little use during the 8 consecutive dry months April through November.

"Address climate change."
Please be precise as to details.

"...it is a mix of regulation and deregulation..."
What deregulation?

Re: “Fast food fight

"Mark, there is no perfect solution to this problem. Since you don't like my idea, what would be your green solution to achieve a 24% reduction in non-essential water use?"
_______________________________________________________________

Actually, your idea of raising water rates is a good one, but being more proactive with the free "essential" amounts, such as for vegetable gardens etc.

Here are a few more ideas that should be implemented in California:

1. Stop having free government pickup of lawn refuse (this will encourage using leaves and grass as mulch).

2. Property tax rebates for xeriscaping.

3. Ban private swimming pools. Invest in public pools.

4. Free rain barrel instillation.

5. Small operation solar distillation of sea water in the coastal regions with local use of the water and the salt.

6. Reduce regulations regarding use of grey water for landscaping, gardening etc. Many municipalities currently ban grey water use.

7. Address climate change.

As you can see it is a mix of regulation and deregulation - in other words what works.

1. The upper income folks will still be filling their swimming pools and watering their lawns every day.

Re: “Raising a gender fluid child in metro Atlanta

@Broch

Being a tolerant person doesn't mean having to accept the viewpoint of someone spouting intolerance.

It means being able to go about your life unbothered that there are other people out there who are different from you.

Nice try, fucking nitwit.

Re: “Fast food fight

"I wouldn’t be raising water fees on 'low-income folks'. Please look up the term non-essential. Each household, according to the number of people living there, would be allocated a certain number of essential gallons at the regular price. If they exceeded that amount the price would increase. This would be similar to a data plan on a cell phone. This method is much more efficient and cost effective than trying to catch someone watering their lawn and imposing a fine."

Re: “Fast food fight

"Being 'a Green', doesn't that put you on the liberal side of the political spectrum?"
_________________________________________________________________

The Greens are an extremely diverse group politically, which is reflected in their slogan: "Neither Left nor Right, but Forward." Consequently, I hesitate to speak for them, particularly because I do not agree with every single policy platform. However, I do agree with the core principle of the party which is geared toward a wholistic view of sustainability. While two mainstream parties recognize economic growth in terms of Gross Domestic Product and the Dow Jones, the Greens ask what kind of products are we producing. Do we really need more disposable plastic crap?

Which brings me to another reason why I like the Greens. Most of the ones I know really practice what they preach by embracing a lifestyle based on discipline. Most Repubs, Dems and Libertarians I know seem to engage in the kind of rampant consumerism that will leave few resources for future generations. They claim to love their children, but do not practice the self discipline to leave them a better world.

Re: “Judge to APD: Train police on public's right to videotape officers

Seems like there needs to be a middle ground established. A way concerned citizens can express an interest and go through a minimal process to have their phones be "pre-approved" or otherwise automatically authenticate before there is a confrontation. That the burden can be shifted to the citizen temporarily until the bruised relations with the police improve. I can't help but feel people feel too empowered by their smartphones and their cameras. The legal landscape on the street isn't going to change by competing pictures alone. There need to be some common ground to build on. Cooperation is essential for any rule to stick.

I too do not belong to an organized party. I believe, as the founding fathers did, that there should be no organized political parties. However, I do believe in the libertarian political philosophy.

Re: “Fast food fight

“So according to your theory the "government educational system" has gotten much better over the past 40 years because of the general decline in literature, visual arts, history and music being taught in schools?

Also according to your theory, the "government educational system" must be much better than the private schools since private schools tend to place much more emphasis literature, visual arts, history and music?

Once again, reality trumps cockeyed theory.”

________________________________________________________________________

I implied nothing of the sort. Governmental schools are certainly not getting better. I simply said that they fail teach basic skills needed in life and also lack vocational training.

Re: “Fast food fight

"They believe that the free market will weed out the bad guys. If this were true, how many people would have had to die before the public stopped buying the GM cars with the bad ignitions? I believe that some government regulation is necessary to provide for the safety of the general public. If you ever read Upton Sinclair's book 'The Jungle,' in which he exposed health violations and unsanitary practices in the American meatpacking industry during the early 20th century..."

Agreed. The problem is that your Libertarian Party is chock full of folks who do not share your understanding.

Re: “Fast food fight

Sorry for the typo. It should have read:

"Basic libertarianism states that you are free to do whatever you wish as long as that behavior does not violate someone's right to life, liberty or property through force, fraud or theft."

"Liberals hate the idea of the Fair Tax because they could no longer control peoples’ behavior through the tax code."
