Dune Deaths to Continue

Re: Driving on Oceano Dunes

Embassy Suites Hotel, San Luis Obispo California-

The California Coastal Commission met today to decide, among other issues, whether hundreds of oil-powered dune buggies, jeeps, cars, truck, RV’s and motorcycles should continue to be allowed to drive on the dunes. Testimony was given that the activity pollutes the air and runs over endangered Snowy Plovers, a tiny bird dependent on the sensitive natural habitat at Oceano Dunes. The parking lot was packed with stubble-bearded men in trucks with confederate flags flying from antennaes or painted on their tailgates.

The Commission decided to punt, after 6 hours of testimony and deliberation, clearly intimidated by the raucus crowd of OHV riders and advocates, who traveled from as far away as Fresno and Bakersfield to attend the meeting.

The Commission directed San Luis Obispo Public Works dept to come up with a plan sometime next year.

Many residents complained of breathing problems and the constant drumbeat of deadly accidents, day and night. This year set a new record for deadly incidents at the dunes.

Progressives: Abandon Ship!

Progressives: Want Change? Abandon the Democratic Party

The democrats refused to impeach GW Bush just before he invaded Iraq in 2003 on false pretenses. As a result, millions died. Then the democrats got angry when Dennis Kucinich stood up and read articles of impeachment against Bush into the congressional record. Since they couldn’t control him, the dems gerrymandered Dennis Kucinich out of congress.

 The democrats now have a new rule that they will not do business with campaign companies who work on campaigns that challenge the incumbent. Who did that? The democrats disenfranchised Bernie supporters at the 2016 primary convention with bully tactics and loud noise makers placed above sections of the convention hall designated as seating areas for Bernie supporters. The democrats conspired to block the nomination of any democratic candidate in the 2016 primary election whose name wasn’t Hillary Clinton. That information came from Russia and was released by wikileaks founder Julian Assange, now in prison fighting extradition to the US where he is likely to be tortured. The democrats need to change but no change will be forthcoming so long as they know you are too afraid to refuse them your vote. Abandon that horrible pack of crooks*

Open Season on Trees

Big Tree Damage by Sea Pines Resort

In what appears to local butterfly and tree activists to have been a concerted effort, a line of eucalyptus trees were destroyed along the ridge-line of the Morro Bay Estuary State Marine Reserve and their debris removed quickly and quietly as word spread about the dirty deed!

Alerted by a concerned post on ‘Neighbors’ social media group, activists converged on the crime scene rapidly, but not fast enough to catch the perpetrators who removed the tree trunks, and deleted the online conversation. One of the trees was a California Heritage Tree, defined as older than the state of California on the site LORAX.

The story and alibi kept changing as the anti-tree pro-development faction in the county switched from ‘shallow root systems’ to ‘drink too much groundwater’ as the questions from residents with knowledge of events poured in. Eventually, the entire post and thread was wiped from ‘neighbors’ without comment or explanation.

Resident tree activists are calling for a boycott against Sea Pines Golf Resort in Los Osos, in hopes of preventing more tree cutting leading to the extinction of the Monarch Butterfly. Please stay tuned for more on-the-turf reporting as events unfold.

Overview of the Proposed Morro Bay Offshore Wind Farm by joey racano

700′ Tall- just like Godzilla!

Overview of the Proposed Morro Bay Offshore Wind Farm

by Joey Racano

The many thousands of 700′ tall wind turbines, collectively known as the Morro Bay Offshore Wind Farm are only the first phase of a much larger offshore wind project, a mass-industrialization of our ocean expanses on a scale not seen in world history.

The leasing process, overseen by industry-captured regulators and driven by greedy city officials, entrepreneurs, and biostitute yes-men, is nothing more than a sleight-of-hand by developers; a who’s-who of those seeking to wring every cent possible out of the land and sea at the expense of vanishing ecosystems.

While rooftops burn in the sunlight without solar panels, these giant turbines will disrupt bird migrations, create navigational hazards for whales and cause unstudied vibrational effects on the marine environment. California already pays Arizona to take solar-generated excess electricity off our hands. So what will be done with the electricity generated by the wind farm turbines?

The first phase would generate enough to power 300,000 new homes. And where will these new homes get the water needed for such gigantic developments? Probably from the giant desalination plants that will be built piggy-back on the power plant seawater intakes, no longer needed for cooling, but certainly a catalyst for the build-out of the last open lands on the California coast. Turbines- power plant- desalination plant, together, a giant engine of new coastal development.

Better to put solar arrays on all rooftops and power a fleet of all-electric cars with the electricity the sun generates when simply run through photo-voltaic solar panels. And the seawater cooling intakes of the power plants? Weld them shut forever.

Stop the Morro Bay Offshore Wind Farm

BOEM (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management) has been holding a series of what activists call ‘Dog & Pony’ shows around California of late, trying to spin the truth about new proposed 700′ tall wind turbines arrayed across our pristine ocean expanses off the west coast. These turbines represent the mass-industrialization of our waters, all in the name of greed. 


The energy utilities want to stop you from going ‘rooftop solar’ because such decentralization would take the on/off switch out of their hands and put the energy user in charge of our own destiny. Promoted as clean and benign, these turbines have never been studied for their vibrational effect on the marine ecosystem, and what studies have been done show migratory birds take such enormous evasive action at the sight of these monoliths that it interferes with feeding and rest and would likely lead to their extinction.

What they represent as a navigational hazard to whales is anybody’s guess.

Midterm Election Position Paper, Sept. 2018

September 20th, 2018

‘RAC the vote’

Midterm Position Paper by Joey Racano

Sept. 20th, 2018

1. Climate Change: Climate change is real, it’s happening now and occurring all around us, and accelerating at a break-neck pace. I consider the warming of our planet to be the paramount issue facing us today. Long term solutions won’t matter unless somebody has the fortitude to enact short term action. These include a switch to all-electric cars, trucks, trains, planes and military/construction equipment powered via home and business rooftop solar arrays. If it isn’t sunny where you live, we will send you electricity via our already existing power grid.

2. Military Budget: I have always disagreed with the idea of having to fight two wars simultaneously. All wars are questionable, but fighting two at a time makes you a trouble maker. The United States doesn’t have a military budget per se’; rather we have a runaway military budget. This budget siphons from much needed social, medical and educational programs. I propose cutting the military budget from 700 billion dollars every 6 months to 700 million dollars every 12 months. This can also offset growing storm costs which are sure to continue escalating.

3. Judge Kavanaugh, the two-party system and the Supreme Court of the United States: Lifetime appointments are too weighty to consist of jurists selected by a single President with a political agenda and ideology. Therefore, I propose all judges be chosen on the merits of their actions and opinions from the lower court cases they have presided on. Political activists need not apply.

Recently, the democratic party shunned the candidate of choice by rigging the game against Senator Bernie Sanders in the 2016 democratic primary. This caused a cascading catastrophe, a giant snowball that is still rolling and growing, and goodness knows where we and our republic will be in 20 years.

Like many Americans, I am concerned. Much as the Trump administration is attempting to fire and pardon their way out of coming prison sentences, the democratic party has escaped their 2016 primary malfeasance by virtue of their being nothing more than a ‘club’; yes, the Democratic Party is just a private club and so answerable to no one! A private club that chooses a candidate for public office! This must change, along with ‘Citizens United’, corporate funding of elections, revolving-door politics from private industry to public office and back to private industry lobbyists.

In conclusion, I invite all interested folks to send me your questions if I have missed issues important to you, and I thank you all for your activism. We can save the world!

With much hope for the future,

‘If you wanna live to see tomorrow, take a lesson from the Mighty Saguaro’

The Mighty Saguaro

by Joey Racano © 2018

We’re livin in a world of illusion
There’s no bliss with this much confusion
Lost city without any morals
You have to choose between the cars or the corals

Got us livin’ by the laws of the jungle
Kick you down try to make you say ‘uncle’
But if you’re down I can lift you gently
Take off your shoes and get out of the Bentley

Your fossil fuel is a thing of the past now
California is burnin’ and fast now
There’s nothing natural about natural gas now
Close all the windows and doors

Hear the single by pasting the youtube link to your browser:

If you wanna live to see tomorrow
Take a lesson from the Mighty Saguaro
Your smart telephone’s got you sedated
You’ve been enslaved by the things you created

The way we’re living is wrong and you know it
Violent weather is beginning to show it
Nevermind about the new world order
Global warming doesn’t need any border

Dirty faces on the kids in the city
They face a future that ain’t very pretty
Everything you learned in school was wrong now
Got to find a way to all get along now

Put your name atop another arena
Your final battle’s gonna be with Athena
Got to find a way to save our planet
Take the power from the people who ran it

If you really want to see tomorrow
Take a lesson from the Mighty Saguaro
If you’re lookin’ for somethin’ to last now
Solar power, permaculture and grass now

Tomorrows Mass Murderer

March 6th, 2018

Tomorrow’s Mass Murderer

Jimmys got a bb gun
killed a little bird
Dad was proud it cried out loud
Worst thing ever heard

Son turned 4 Dad took him hunting
Shotgun heavy, the boy was grunting
Then he took dad’s gun to school
People died ’cause dad’s a fool

Neighbors tried to have a ban
someone could have stopped that man
Got used to killing and when he turned 16
Bought his first AR-15

People ranted people raved
20 victims to their graves
Newsdesk milked it to the bone
Not one mention of a Predator Drone

Hashtag ban the rifles now
Thats when something went ka-pow!
Here comes worldwide mass leukemia
Trace it back to Fukushima

Ban the guns ignore the drones
War games played on video phones
Angry kid no dad and hates mom
Safe and sound thanks to the H-bomb

Hope you liked our little story
Sorry if it got too gory
Guns and bombs and nukes all kill
Wielded by the mentally ill

Grab your joystick fly a drone
From a lazy boy recliner in El Cajon
No one banned them they’re comin’ in hot
Tomorrows mass murderer, the killer robot

America’s Racist National Anthem

February 21st, 2018

Dear Fergie,

Thank you for your beautiful and sexy rendition of America’s National Anthem, the Star-Spangled Banner’ at the recent 2018 NBA All-Star Game. As artist’s, we have a responsibility to be creative, and yours was the best I’ve heard since Jimmi Hendrix at Woodstock.

To the haters:

You owe Fergie a debt of gratitude for omitting the racist third verse. Let’s get rid of the SSB and get an anthem that doesn’t threaten our workers and minorities.

Your friend and fan,

joey racano

In case you are unawares:

“No refuge could save
the hireling or slave
from the terror of flight
or the gloom of the grave”

Students Take it Lying Down

Arm the Students

The leaders work for the breeders
The army works for the smarmy
The Navy ain’t gonna save me
The National Guard will come down hard

Kids look up your world is dying
Time to fight and stop the crying
You’re so caught up in getting laid
You’re not aware you’re being played

The Air Force is a force for chemtrails
Mass graves swallow conservationists entrails
Absent is a gentile discourse
To stand and fight your only recourse

Forests leveled Constitution beveled
Bill of Rights once great disheveled
Politics is no solution when you’re drowning in pollution
Learn what revolution means:demand your own AR-15’s
