TAKING THE SOUL OUT OF SURFING


I just want to make sure I got this straight. Allowing the Marines to build officers housing on their land above Trestles would ruin the highly sensitive ecological zone that contains numerous endangered spieces. Letting the railroad repair it's Trestles after el nino rain damage would negatively impact a precious wetland and forever alter the reef. And the proposed toll road! The list of negative effects from that could go on forever. Maybe so. Why in the hell do many of the same people who speak of the above horrors either allow or find it ok to build a 3 story structure on the beach stretching for 100 yards? Have numerous trucks and shuttle busses running in and out of there all day long?. Allow tens of thousands of people, most star-struck lookie-loos to trample the area for a week? Have event parking signs on the freeway? Wait! I think I get it! It's ok this time because the State Parks, the surf industry, Surfrider, and numerous pros are making money! Hypocrites each and everyone of them. Anyone remember when Trestles was this wonderful hidden surf spot that you had to walk to and from? If you didn't carry it in it wasn't available? Thanks for turning it into Huntington Beach.

Clearly they need to build the toll road to get all the 909'ers to the next big contest! Might as well pave the place in the process to park all the cars!

If the state parks are getting money for letting them hold these big contests, why can't they use the money to hire more rangers to patrol the parks and the beaches to help curb those who can't respect the beach and who feel they can trash it because they paid to use it anyway they want! And when these party people who do not have permits for the party's, they should be asked to leave or they should be ticketed to make up for the cost of the permit they don't have.

Since Anonymous' paranoid rant will get sent to his own blog that he/she won't use, here is a description of that person:

Paranoid personality disorder is characterized by a distrust of others and a constant suspicion that people around you have sinister motives. People with this disorder tend to have excessive trust in their own knowledge and abilities and usually avoid close relationships with others. They search for hidden meanings in everything and read hostile intentions into the actions of others. They are quick to challenge the loyalties of friends and loved ones and often appear cold and distant to others. They usually shift blame to others and tend to carry long grudges.

Dr. Laura:

I know a Dr. Dingo post when I see one*.

And speaking of personalities, I ran across this gem describing you:

"The brash, arrogant yet wonderfully inept Dr Dingo is the perfect fall guy and the focus of much of the humor. He has also amassed an impressive repertoire of testicular references, no doubt because he seems to store his own gonads in his brain cavity -- did you really think they were marbles?"

P.S. This is not an attack. I like your posts, though not the barfing ones. I just thought that this was really funny. You do seem to post a lot of naked women.

*Of course, I could be wrong, but it would be only the second time, no make that third, oh wait, that error in counting makes it four thne. Oops, typos make it five.
