    • YUCCA VALLEY and TWENTYNINE PALMS elected leadership prefer that bigger government keep their noses out their local jurisdictions.

      Likewise, a majority of YV and 29 voters were clear when they voted for the adult cannabis proposition. One should assume they too prefer local council members keep their noise out a majority of voters’ legal recreational business and healthcare decisions.

      Even though both council have playing it safe by enacting codes that prevented opening up legal cannabis markets (medical or adult use) in the Morongo Basin, they are united with about 76 percent of California cities that have done the same thing.

      Two California Propositions easily passed allowing medical cannabis and later adult use of the plant. Seventy-six of the municipal thought better and said no.

      Including Yucca Valley, many California cities and towns actually introduced and passed un-Constitutional ordinances that allowed code enforcement to enter your home to inspect your legal plants, and that you would need a costly permit.

      Who wants a code enforcement guy inspecting your bedrooms and house, making sure residents are complying with their legal six plants. The record shows that this was/is over-broad and un-Constitutional town codes.

      To no discredit to the councils, YV was in violation of residents’ Fourth Amendment rights: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated…” The court had no problem declaring one or two cities could not violate people’s right to be be secure on their homes and

      Earlier, both councils also went to far in prohibiting the deliveries of medical cannabis by licensed and legal mobile services.

      Should a Gillibrand bill become law, it would could benefit two councilmembers.

      Yucca Valley Mayor, Robert Lombardo, DDS would eventually be able to prescribe cannabis or CBD cannabis pain medication just like the veterans administration physicians would be able to do.

      Twentynine Palms Councilmember Dan Mintz would eventually (if not sooner) be able to to supply cannabis spirits to his sports bar patrons. That’s a be a monetary benefit.

    • Google’s (YouTube) decision to censor “videos” that deny the Holocaust, school shootings and other “well-documented violent events,”and Aryan supremacy on a privately owned corporate platform is a tough one for me. I have studies and defended the Constitution (from a legal and academic environments) and have alway have come down in favor of free speech as opposed to censorship.

      The Nazis fascists eventually had to be stopped after the Nazis disposed of millions of human beings. It all began with their propaganda of lies, hate and Nazi Aryan supremacy.

    • Your problem Branson…. Is you listen too much to CNN. Youtube is purging any and all Conservative content in the name of Hate Speech.

      They are even purging History Professors who teach WWII as part of their content…. What Youtube is doing is burying History in the name of Hate.

      If you do not like Conservative content providers… DON”T WATCH THEM. You have the ability to pass it by. By deplatforming them you make them even more relevant.

      Its a battle for truth…. Sometime History isn’t all sugar tits and lollipops.

      Youtube claimed itself as a place for free expression of ideas for years… Now it is just another sorry example of Far Left Wing political correctness.

      Sorry Branson I am not going to let Jeff Bezos tell me what is correct political thought.

    • Dan, back in the 40s were “sugar tits” baby bottles filled with sugar water?

      Adding a little sunshine to my personal view, speech is best not YouTube censorship.

      But don’t you see an armed threat from extreme right white militant superemist and other Nazi-like militants around the world?

      I don’t see that from the extreme left.

      FWIW, Amazon Will Pay $0 in Taxes on $11,2B in Profit for 2018. That is insane and unconscionable. What is wrong with this Picture?

      My intake of news is four hours a day every day. Sometimes CNN catches my attention. Most often I read articles or view videos from more that 20 sources. I listen to commentary from professional and have an open mind on their take and knowledge on daily news events.

    • FWIW

      Given the ire and controversies over the recent county fire taxes (and add on tax to that) and the multitude of new state taxes — why was this reportable news buried under a different title in connection with a government meetings.

      It’s a given that station’s advertising revenues will increase should the MUSC decide another taxing bond is necessary. This time, the District has $100K of outside money, corporate interference in the voting process. TRIBAL money will come in generous amounts to radio station.

      The charitable view is that the station news manager is holding the story to a later date as it becomes better developed and more information is available.

      Meanwhile, Journalism standards and journalism excellence should always be questioned as decisions are consummated.

      Property tax bond increases touch and concern all property owners in the Basin.

      Hungry readers and listeners would love to see an Op-ed from the stations newsroom concerning both sides of the developing issue.
