some of that money should be going to fix Oakland problems. Like putting more police on the street, fixing housing or feeding the homeless there.
Misleading click bait title on FB EBE like page btw.
when will it be sold in Washington state? it is legal now
The differentiation between information and opinion seems to be non-existent. Analysis seems to be something that EBX does not want or need for its writings.
Exactly what analysis was performed to determine that "Everyone's Freaked Out By Housing Crisis" (article title) given the fact that 29% identified housing costs/affordability as the number 1 priority and 10% identified it as the number 2 priority.
So, for 61% of the respondents, housing costs/affordability was, at best, the 3rd highest priority. Therefore "everyone is freaked out?"
Oh, and zero of the survey that was performed and analyzed identified root cause. But, the author, without any apparent reasoning, determined that "happiness" differences were rooted in "racial segregation, redlining, deindustrialization, job discrimination, the drug war, and most recently the foreclosure crisis."
Well done EBX. It is horrible enough that Trump has his own set of "alternative facts."
Go ahead and march. As a buyer of the Saturday edition, you have my permission (not that you'd have to ask..).
I also wanted to add, what about the fact the Alameda Naval Air Station is a Superfund site (nothing super about that...). According to the EPA web site,
"All liquid industrial wastewaters generated at the site prior to 1974 were discharged untreated into Seaplane Lagoon and the Oakland Inner Harbor."
"White people with college educations and six-figure incomes who live in North Oakland and around Lake Merritt are "most happy" with the city's quality of life."
"All Oaklanders are willing to pay higher taxes to support better services, almost across the board."
Maybe all such Oaklanders don't understand that a third of the fixed high housing costs they complain about go to pay property taxes. In addition Oakland/Alameda County is hardly modest regarding sales and other taxes and fees.
On the other hand there are significant areas in which Oakland's services amount to so little, and the need is sufficiently high, that people will give even more. Should I point out public safety?
It's great how the East Bay Express publishes articles like this that dive deep into the topic of the rich diversity in Oakland... by only talking about its Black and White residents.
Trump is a divisive racist fascist that doesn't care if he tears apart that some many worked really hard to make happen. The pen being mightier that the sword has stopped millions of FEDERAL DOLLARS assistance to these sanctuary cities. This bigoted P.O.S P.O.T.U.S. is the largest delusional manchild that I have ever seen in my lifetime. He scares the hell out of me.
We should stop sending our tax dollars to the federal government. We give more than we get. The states that elected this pariah get more than they give.
Ernest its their money and they are diversified- enabling them to do this kind of action w out hurting their fund. You pay into Calpers?
Jim MZT would you say the same thing to a dude? Both of you sound absurd!

What if you'all reduced OPD ranks by 53 people and formed a professional football team? Then you could spend that extra $10M on homelessness, schools and affordable housing. Would that work?
If the Founding Fathers believed "the law is the law for everyone," we would still be drinking tea!
Kaplan has no business beating her drum in North Dakota nor should she get involved in telling PERS how to invest. It seems that PERS has done very well without her input.
I'm curious: In a city as diverse as Oakland (socio-economically & geographically), how does a survey account for citizens feelings with only 1,202 interviews?
I mean, the differences in micro-climates alone are UGE!
PS. Looking at the map, how far into the Bay does District 7 extend...All the way to the peninsula?

According to Professor Bill Hing at the USF School (who was interviewed last evening on NPR/KQED) the only money Trump can touch is related to security related concerns. There are laws which govern what types of monies can be withheld by the president. Because immigration falls under Homeland Security only funding for policing, security, etc can be withheld.
But, I suppose we'll see....
As was already mentioned the GOP is cutting those programs across the board so BFD
Also they're not allowed to leave the US since they're carrying around somebody else's ID and SS#.
