Chula Vista: Our first Rostra cartoon?

Wednesday, October 22, 2014
posted by Thor's Assistant

We don’t have a resident cartoonist at SD Rostra. We don’t have a syndicated one. Heck, we don’t even know what a syndicate is.

But, when a reader sends a cartoon for our exclusive use, well, yeahhhh.  The reader/cartoonist wants to remain anonymous, but it’s safe to say the person has an interest in Chula Vista politics.

Who’s schooling who in Oceanside? Or is it whom?

Tuesday, September 23, 2014
posted by Thor's Assistant

Mass mailing and continuing education gurus Fred Pryor Seminars may be trying to save on postage costs, but we’re thinking some of their joint invitees may not be inclined to share a ride together to class…

For those not familiar with the names shown, Oceanside Council Member Gary Felien is the treasurer of the Republican Party of San Diego County. Francine Busby, a former school board member and Congressional candidate, is the chair of the San Diego County Democratic Party. Youth Take Aim for ATF Night in Southern California

In a state that is known to implement very stringent restrictions on Second Amendment freedoms, this young adult ATF night displays the enthusiasm of young people to learn and responsibly exercise their rights. Gracious volunteers with appropriate training gave their time willingly to assist shooters of all abilities and experience.

A comment on comments

Tuesday, August 5, 2014
posted by Thor's Assistant

We’ve tried to monitor the comments for violations of name calling and the general rule that commenters get only into politics, not personalities.

But, it’s a tough job to do, especially with a few commenters. We will do better. It’s gotten out of hand, quite frankly.

It ends now. This goes for all here.

We have no plans to have to refine or clarify the rules based on the actions of a very few. But, we’ll leave open the reality that it may be necessary.
