San Onofre… We Won!!

Yesterday, Feb 6th, I stood for 14 hours with a big cardboard sign trying to be heard by the California Coastal Commission regarding the Toll Road proposed to slice through San Onofre State Park.

Going in it looked like a close vote… either 6-4 for the project.. or 5-5 … word was that one commissioner was on the fence.. and we needed that one to stop the project. After the biggest public attendance to one of these meetings EVER the vote went 8-2 against!!

Thank you Coastal Commission for doing a wonderful job. These people aren’t paid to do what they do… The labor union guys that the TDA (toll road) people brought in (and who left at 2pm when their shift was done) made more money that day the the commissioners.. Thank you California Coastal Commission for enduring that and for running a good meeting in trying conditions.

 Well done!

I’ll get some links posted to this page soon with pictures and such.. but right now I’m gonna go celebrate some more.

The next step for the toll road is to appeal… and Bush man (the president guy) has the power to trump the commission.. which he did recently with the Navy’s sonar program that kills sea animals.. namely whales and dolphins… a program deemed necessary to train to find “silent subs” that our enemy has.. I wasn’t aware of the fleet of silent subs that Al Qaeda has. I guess that’s one of those top secrets.

Anyway.. it’s a good day.

The news cast didn’t make me sound that bad… I’m near the end of the video.. actually you can see me in the beginning and end too.. it’s easy to see my skinny legs… but I speak with about 40 seconds left in the clip.

Here’s another local news cast … if you watch the video you can see me looking like a total kuk drifting into the TV’s lineup.

  1. […] The TCA (Transportation Corridor Agencies) was told by the California Coastal Commission and, more importantly, by the people that their proposed toll road wasn’t kosher. https://pangeanative.wordpress.com/2008/02/08/san-onofre-we-won/ […]
