The San Luis Obispo County coastline is under a tsunami advisory, meaning that an actual tsunami is possible after a magnitude 8 earthquake hit Chile earlier today — so please be advised. Stay away from the beaches. If there is a tsunami, the sandspit will likely not protect your home from damage if you live by . . . → Read More: Tsunami Advisory for February 27, 2010
It’s not too late to get some of the best candidates to throw their bonnets and hats into the ring against Obama in 2012. The Razor believes new blood is needed in the next campaign, that is if Republicans are really committed to defeating the leftist coup now operating out of the West Wing. We believe that California offers a ticket that can’t be beat. To head the ticket, Barbara Wolcott should run for President of the United States in 2012. Wolcott wrote a book (“Small Town Perfect Storm: The Los Osos Sewer Saga”) that was so objective and amazingly accurate, she simply must run for President. Assemblyman Sam Blakeslee would make a terrific vice presidential candidate or a candidate for any office that has the word “vice” in it. Blakeslee has achieved icon status on the Central Coast for making it a law that 4,500+ homes in Los Osos’ so-called “Prohibition Zone” are polluting and need to pay for a $200 million sewer. His “Money Is Green” job initiative to levy new “green” energy taxes on homeowners is another example of his altruism.
Here are the Wolcott-Blakeslee positions on the key issues in a nutshell.

At one of Supervisor Bruce Gibson’s office hours last year, I saw Christopher Allebe take a seat in the back of the room. He leaned his chair back against the wall while Richard Margetson chided Gibson on his rebuke of Los Osos public comment. After Margetson finished speaking, Allebe took a long sigh, looked in Gibson’s eyes and said to him tersely, “You know, I don’t appreciate our rights being taken away, Mr. Gibson. You don’t want to listen to us, do ya? That’s not right.” When Allebe said that to Gibson, I thought about John Wayne when he said, “A man ought to do what he thinks is right” (Hondo, 1953). Like Wayne, Allebe had a unique, “no-holds-barred” western swagger that left his political adversaries shaken -- but those who knew him best recognized him for his gentle soul and his unwavering sense of justice.

Rebuffed by Los Osos and the courts of San Luis Obispo County, urban wastewater cowboy Tom Murphy, proprietor of “The Reclamator” onsite system, is back pawing familiar ground and has turned himself into a perpetual suit-filing machine. His target for the new year: Everybody.
Holed up in Lake Havasu City, Arizona, Murphy has been firing off rounds of lawyerless suits in federal courts against the federal government, the EPA, the State of California, and Lake Havasu City. Filing suits is nothing new for Murphy – it’s always been his calling card — but he may have already played all his cards and used up his suit quota for 2010 just in January and February alone.

The Tea Party movement has not done much to raise awareness of specific issues that regularly affect millions of Americans. Instead of issuing a reasonable, thoughtful rebuttal of President Barack Obama’s policies, Tea Party supporters have been preoccupied with producing a fearful caricature of Obama as a “committed socialist idealogue,” a Leftist Leviathan who will do everything in his power to destroy the Constitution. At least, that’s according to Former Congressman and 2008 Republican presidential candidate Tom Tancredo, who spoke to an audience at the first-ever Tea Party Convention in Nashville.
