"Golf in Carlsbad." As everybody knows, (humor) most golfers earn less than the minimumRead More wage, and can barely afford their hobby. Thus we should all be thankful that Carlsbad City Hall recently decided to take business away from the "greedy" families who privately operate the 3 pre-existing golf courses….and created a $100 million Taxpayer obligation to build an "affordable" golf course for America's impoverished golfers. No golf course is worth a darn unless it's owned by Government! The Callaway article reminds us of the high cost of golf clubs, so let's urger Carlsbad City Hall to either purchase or "annex" an empty building so that their tools of the trade (golf clubs) could also be manufactured and subsidized at Taxpayer expense. In case you forget, the following names are on display at Government Golf: Patchett, Hall, Lewis, Kulcin, Packard, et al.

Who has even heard of these stores? Didn't Aaron Bros.go under in 1987? Who wants to take the timeRead More to hack into these accounts? Dummies that shop there don't have any money! Low-brow and low income customers who bring in their 5 screaming kids ( 4 are obese!) And their parents let them terrorize the rest of the shoppers. Free babysitting while Mommy orders an extra large Slushee for Remo and his ADD. Why ? Parents weren't parented either. Or its considered cute as Jr. has his meltdown with sticky chocolate fingers ! Count me out...

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actual few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in the population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment, justly applied, for infractions have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime/prisons is the goal if you THINK.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.

i think those are overrated, but among the better ones...it WAS a rather strange assortment ofRead More places. quite an eclectic list.
Paul Gudnason April 2, 2014 at 07:31 am
The list includes two chain restaurants and doesn't include West?? Both of West's restaurants shouldRead More have been on this list but it IS based on Yelp ratings.

Poor headline. It's not up 7 percent, it's up to 7 percent!

Yet again extremely poor writing in the Patch. So weird and annoying.

They will settle and end up paying only $50,000/each. It always happens. There's a reason they oweRead More that much in taxes.

The Most Practical Economist In America (me) believes that it is criminal to have another person'sRead More property, and keep it. Theft, and/or embezzlement, or something else should be addressed in criminal court. Sales Tax means that their customers actually gave them the money, but the business owner converted the money to their own personal accounts instead of forwarding same to its rightful owner. Regardless of how much they pay back, jail time is appropriate.

Do you supposed that our legislators will not enact laws against this crime because they plan to hitRead More the crooks up later for campaign donations?
glenn bernard March 4, 2014 at 10:55 am
All of those cities sending reps to an Economic forum…..the only possible good news theyRead More could contribute is that they will no longer collect any taxes for anything, and return to the halcyon days of the 1950's where the closest government entity was that of San Diego County. How 'bout that new police chief in the City of San Diego!!??? She is actually simultaneously collecting excessively high pay and excessively high retirement pay even though her retirement is a few years off!! How can somebody claim to the poster child for law-and-order while milking a corrupt and absurd pay package? Only Government could find a way to make white collar crime legal.

Now just one more similar headline is needed……"Carlsbad City Hall is prohibitedRead More from spending tax dollars on Art and/or on any Art-related activity." (I support Art Education and Music Education in the public schools….along with everything else they teach).

I wish that when you write about a new place, besides giving the address, which really doesn't tellRead More me much about where on Palmoar it is....how about giving more specific information...i.e. is it in a group of other places (outlets, Costco, Lowes?)...is it east of ECR?, or ? thanks.

It's in the Lowe's shopping center.
