Re: “A Second Transbay Link Is Inevitable — but Will It Be Equitable?

What is missing from this story is that a 2nd tube is NOT inevitable. BART is outdated, very expensive technology. Richmond based http://www.Cybertran.com has vastly superior technology which will be operational within a few years, (there are also other companies with similarly similarly superior transit technology competing) It is sad that The Express has never reported on this. Before Bush offered a federal loan to build the OAC with super-expensive outdated technology, Cybertran was planning to build the OAC with no additional funding required. But it never made the news, so now the 1st major Cybertran installation is expected to be to the UC Berkeley campus

Re: “Oakland Activist Cat Brooks on President Trump: 'My Revolutionary Prayer'

Thank you...reading from Copenhagen, Denmark, and after being in a march of solidarity recently, seeing all the 'ordinary' people who showed up, your words resonate deeply....and think it's very important to frame the response this way. Peace and love.

Re: “New Documents Reveal Oakland Officials Were Aware of Ghost Ship’s Numerous Problems: Raves, Kidnapping, Battery, Assault, And More

Where is Derick Almena? This is where the anger and responsibility should be directed. Perhaps it is because people want to go after deeper pockets.

Re: “Darwin BondGraham, Ali Winston Win Prestigious George Polk Award For East Bay Express Series on Oakland Police Scandal

Reporters like BondGraham and Winston are indispensable, especially after the demise of the Oakland Tribune and the absence of beat reporters at City Hall. Democracy becomes impracticable without journalists who can devote time to researching long-form stories like theirs. What I'm wondering is, does this award come with any money?

It's now February 20 at 11am pacific. I just visited the Polk awards web site. I see no announcements for 2017 and they don't seem to appear on the 2016 lists? What's up?

Re: “Oakland Tenants Say Eviction Notices on Rise After Ghost Ship, Call on City Hall For Moratorium

Am Sherri from Texas. i just want to share my experience with everyone. I have being hearing about this blank ATM card for a while and i never really paid any interest to it because of my doubts. Until one day i discovered a hacking guy called Donard. he is really good at what he is doing. Back to the point, I inquired about The Blank ATM Card. If it works or even Exist. They told me Yes and that its a card programmed for random money withdraws without being noticed and can also be used for free online purchases of any kind. This was shocking and i still had my doubts. Then i gave it a try and asked for the card and agreed to their terms and conditions. Hoping and praying it was not a scam. 3 days later i received my card and tried with the closest ATM machine close to me, It worked like magic. I was able to withdraw up to $5000 daily. This was unbelievable and the happiest day of my life. So far i have being able to withdraw up to $30000 in one week without any stress of being caught. I dont know why i am posting this here, i just felt this might help those of us in need of financial stability. blank Atm has really change my life.

Re: “Protest Trump's Inauguration in Oakland, But Please Don't Be Violent

michael good: it looks like (as i thought) that there was nothing to fear regarding property destruction from any demonstrator or protester.

absolutely nothing negative happened as a result of days of protest.

hope that crow tasted *good.*

Re: “High-Level City Staff Knew of Police Sex Crimes Months Before Oakland Mayor Says She Was Informed

"Do you crypto-anarchists really think..."

Epithet and poli sci update: the original crypto epithet was "crypto-fascist" spoken by Gore Vidal to W.F. Buckley Jr. Perfectly apt.

An anarchist is someone who doesn't believe in government, so whether or not gov't was aware of anything at all isn't really of much interest to an anarchist.

A fascist is likely to be someone who things gov't is god and, accordingly,
all-powerful and unquestionable. Something like W.F. Buckley Jr and the writer of the crypto- epithet above. Fascists or crypto-fascists.
