Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
I remember as a child and young adult attending Oakland Symphony concerts in the Calvin Simmons Theater. The acoustics and sight lines are the finest in the Bay Area. I hope other Oakland Council members will support Rebecca Kaplan and that this wonderful venue can be brought back to life.
generation of liberals and progressives narcissistically unaware of conditions outside their self-defined groups. It is a bit much for someone to say they are 99% when so many people don't agree. Trump spoke to many who don't agree with those who say they are 99% and those who are identified as 1%. The Progressives math is wrong and so many know it.
You might have given Obama a chance but the Republicans in Congress NEVER did.
As a white male I am tired of the constant implication that we are always to blame for the lack of diversity in some institution or business. Looking back at the history of the Internet and computer technology it was pretty much just white males that invented it. I am so sorry for this historical fact so let's just hire women and minorities to invent everything now.
In a way you are pissing on a wall. Give Trump a chance. We gave Obama a HUGE chance and he blew it with his perverted ideology that has little to do with the USA, and more with his muslim upbringing. Obama didn't even help his brothers who need help desperately! So, let's give Trump a chance and not be so wussily put off because he is a big mouthed New Yorker and richer than the rest of us. He is also a patriot, and maybe it is time for lefties in the East Bay, anywhere, to stop categorizing patriots as some kind of bigot? Maybe it's the other guys who are the bigots? It often seems that way! Let's give this gigantic and irrefutable swing to the right a fair trial period, before we decide we can see into the future.
US/Western Culture is again channeling our perceptions, wrongly, into an either-or paradigm. Reality is multidimensional and multi-causal. US political issues are about BOTH-AND race and class and they are largely inseparable. Bernie Sanders makes the same mistake that socialists and folks on the left have frequently made: that class is more important than race or "identity politics." He wants to draw us into a class struggle within and to reform the Democrat Party. This is a historically proven mistake and a waste of energy. Read "The Miner's Canary" for examples of how to form successful coalitions across lines of both race and class.
I will be in the Bay area from Jan through March. Will there be any groupmuse concerts that I could attend?
There should be restrictions on emitting such large amount of CO2 greenhouse gas into the atmosphere. The latter is the issue the governors should be constrained about, rather, they should praise all the benefits that solar companies bring out. As a user of the services of LA Solar Group http://la-solargroup.com, I would advice you to purchase their solar powered panels, as they provide panels with great mechanical engineering designs.
Unless I misunderstand, the writer is reporting on the results of a survey, not advocating any particular approach. What combination of Gandhi and Patton would you like to see here in this age of police militarization, hyper-surveillance, unaffordable housing and progressive/wealthy population that is currently in place in Oakland? This is a multi-layered issued; for instance, the Oakland police have been operating under court order for how many years now - 13 (http://www.mercurynews.com)?
Who would want the job?
Useful suggestions ! Just to add my thoughts , if your business is searching for a Bankruptcy B6I , my friend used a fillable document here http://pdf.ac/6QK200.
More than anything, the election illustrates fragmentation. The "them's" are large and many; The "us" is small and few.
It's a shame that someone like this, could get elected to Congress.
She spends her time spending other peoples money to get her self re-elected to office; I wonder if she has ever had a job in the real world.
Progress made in the last 8 years; 25 trillion in debt, more people on public assistance , foreign policy decisions that have been a disaster.
There is nothing like a sore loser, especially when that sore loser is a big government liberal!
It's a shame that Oakland has a Mayor that needs a civics lesson.
Her comments about progressive values is what got defeated in November, people are sick and tired of career politicians taking other peoples income to finance their personal and social agendas.
It's unfortunate that we have elected officials that take an oath of office and then do everything they can to violate the very oath they have taken to uphold the law.
You can do it Teena. You been around and have the best fish lunch special in downtown Oakland.
Cat, the vast majority of Oaklanders are with you in your efforts, but disgusted by your passive attitude about collateral damage. I've seen anarchists injury innocent people. It's hard to reconcile empathy for the oppressed while making victims of innocent residents, business owners and their employees. There is a tsunami of voices building that wants the obstruction of downtown streets and destruction of property to come to an end. It's been going on for over SIX years. OPD reported over 180 protest events and record breaking overtime pay in 2015. Oaklanders overwhelmingly supported progressive measures and political leaders in our most recent election -we should not be injuring our local community.
Good ideas . Apropos , if someone requires a CA East Bay Purchase Agreement Addendum , my friend used a fillable version here https://goo.gl/ac6v3w.
@Rob Appeldorn: why would anyone protest in Oakland when Obama was elected? They celebrated. But white Republicans most definitely did violenty protest Obama in red states. They lynched Obama in effigy, they called him the "N****r president", they burned signs of him, some KKK people protested in their robes, NC State Univ. students spray-painting "Let's shoot that N****r in the head" and "Hang Obama by a noose." I guess you conveniently forgot their racist hatred, violence and property damage.

@Charlie Pine, hear hear. How do we get monitors to attend? I want to be involved in peaceful demonstrations and I don't want to be associated with people breaking windows, throwing paint, setting fires, etc.
When will the black on black genocide be acknowledged and become equally denounced? I live in East Oakland and with in a five houe radius, one family has lost both of their sons, another family lost a daughter, the other 3 lost a grandson each. All these murders were black on black killings. Facts prove that more black men are killed by black men then by any other race or law enforcement every year. I don't understand why there is not marching in the streets for that, why is this loss of so many black lives not a reason?
