Re: “Oakland A's Finally Remove Tarps On Third Deck At Coliseum

$15 is not affordable and neither is the $17 for the bleachers, drop the price to $5 because that's all the seat is worth. Remember the good old days when they were only $3 and second deck was $4 and the entire lower bowl was $5? Gas was 25 cents a gallon too.

Re: “AC Transit to Cancel Supplemental OUSD School Bus Routes

AC Transit is currently more interested in creating a FLEX service in other parts of its district to compete with Uber and Lyft for affluent riders with multiple transit options.....and OUSD students can go eat sand. Poverty is structural and decisons like this by the meat puppets at AC Transit illustrate it well.

Re: “Women-Led Mosque to Open in Berkeley

I am assuming that the reference to Berkeley MSA is UC Berkeley? I want to emphasis to the readers that Qal'bu Maryam is not in competition with any other gathering, or mosque. We understand that there will be those women who are in a system of patriarchy invented by men and for whom women become the gatekeepers. As the saying goes; If you build it they will come. I am not the least bit concerned with what her opinion is, I am concerned with creating a safe, nonjudgmental space for women who do feel that the "tradition" has left them out. And let me say this, we are not existing or working outside of tradition, just wanted to be clear on that. Jazak Allah Khair.

Re: “New Dating Site for Pot Users Has High Hopes

Many people have wrote articles of how they were helped by a spell caster but I am very grateful to this great spell caster who brought my ex husband back to me. This testimony is a true story and my name is Jennifer Sanchez. When i came in contact with this man was also through a testimony written about him and i have also encountered many testimonies about how he has been helping others with their life. To get back with an ex is one of the most inner most feeling many people would love to experience especially as those memories with our ex always cloud our mind when someone else does some of those things our ex used to do. I was a single parent for almost 6 years and though my ex husband was far away from my kids i still wish someday he will return back to me. This spell doctor i encountered known as Doctor Odunga helped me with my wishes and i am happy to say that i am back with my ex husband and i am very happy sharing the testimony with everyone so that they too can meet this great doctor and solve their problems. I don't know what others might feel about getting their ex back in their life but i always know there is a blessing in disguise with just a single reconnection with an ex. If you want to successfully get back with your ex, visit this website or contact this great spell caster at and share an awesome testimony too just like me.

Re: “AC Transit to Cancel Supplemental OUSD School Bus Routes

@Anthony Moore, "I believe there is still REGULAR service serving these schools" Sad to say there are no buses that serve the 2/3 schools that I know of and attended, Montera and Skyline, used the supplemental bus service exclusively to get to and from school. I could get by over a decade ago getting to Montera as there was a bus that got within 2-3 blocks of Montera, however that route was cut about a decade ago. Secondly, I would hate when the supplemental buses would skip my stop that went to Skyline, there were 6 of them 3 to each of the 2 lines that served that stop. The only option at that point was to take a bus near Merritt College and walk about a mile and a half uphill equivalent to 65 story building in height only to miss my first class entirely.

@ Robert - Racists? Because a majority of the people are white? Like antifa, I ponder who the actual racists are.

Re: “AC Transit to Cancel Supplemental OUSD School Bus Routes

Saint Mary's High in Berkeley also gets its own bus line. Private schools get traffic lights, while public schools, maybe get crossing guards, sometimes. On Lincoln Avenue in Oakland, it is only a matter of time until a speeding Head Royce parent runs down a Sequoia Elementary student. Head Royce has had 2 traffic lights and massive structural traffic mitigation put in place in the last 20 years. Sequoia gets a crossing guard when budgets allow.

Re: “AC Transit to Cancel Supplemental OUSD School Bus Routes

Re: the previous comment on "there is still REGULAR service serving these schools"

The "school" bus from my kids school to home comes on time and takes 20 min. The "regular" bus from my kids school to home is a combination of 3 buses that takes 2 hrs 40 min total - the most optimal combination - each way.

Additionally, even if I allowed my kids to spent 5.5+ hrs on bus every day, assuming all 3 legs of the trip come on time (a huge assumption), even if kids left from home at 6 am, and used regular buses, they could NEVER come to school by the start of school time. There is just NO way to get to school from many portions of Oakland by the time school starts. Again, we're talking about NOT EVEN A SINGLE day ever could they come to school by the start of classes.

Re: “Berkeley Farmers Market Canceled Due To Safety Fears Over Pro-Trump, Alt-Right Rally

Supporting racism has far greater implications of violence then beating up racists.
The 1st amendment protects people from censorship by the government but it does not protect you from the social consequences of spreading hateful rhetoric. Talk $#!+ get hit

Re: “Berkeley Farmers Market Canceled Due To Safety Fears Over Pro-Trump, Alt-Right Rally

Jj. You can't seem to understand the obvious. The left has shut down multiple peacfull assemblies with violence I don't care if we are welcome or not. We will not let you shut down free speech. Left rightor center free speech is paramount for a free society.

You don't care untill they shut down your events and speakers and teachers and entertainers. This will happen if real men don't stand up. What goes around comes around. You are complacent and take for granted your freedoms.

Tell your commie leftist buddies not to come .they have been infiltrated. If you care about your friends warn them not to come or be peacfull if they do. The place will be crawling with on and off dutie law enforcment special forces and intelligence agents. Your party is over.

@ JJ - "there is a sucker born every minute." Says the Marxist clown.

Antifa is providing food!? That's awfully nice of them. Hope it isn't strictly veggie burgers and dogs.

Btw I'll be there passing out deodorant sticks and bug repellent. I understand certain issues arise when antifa is around.

Re: “AC Transit to Cancel Supplemental OUSD School Bus Routes

One thing conveniently left out of this article is that I believe there is still REGULAR service serving these schools. SUPPLEMENTAL service merely means that an extra run or two was added just for the students... a GOOD thing. HOWEVER, students would STILL be able to take the bus the school... just as I and many other OUSD students have done for decades.

Re: “AC Transit to Cancel Supplemental OUSD School Bus Routes

Furthermore....AC Transit *DOESN'T* serve the general public? Isn't that why it's called PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION?

Re: “AC Transit to Cancel Supplemental OUSD School Bus Routes

"The dispute boils down to money." What else is new. The "dispute" in Oakland is consistently, and ever more so about money; those that have more of it, want even more and those with less, get less. Services and access to basic necessities of Oakland living - like kids taking a bus to school - are blithely overlooked in favor of money. It's despicable, but sadly it's another perfect example of Oakland discarding the needs of the needy. How about some of the "haves" stand up and help out these school kids and the OUSD? Hello Google Bus, Uber, etc...y'all could use some good PR.

Re: “Berkeley Farmers Market Canceled Due To Safety Fears Over Pro-Trump, Alt-Right Rally

@ Mark- "Atheist ramblings?" Thanks for making it clear that Trump supporters are just as big a bunch of right wing religious zealots as any Taliban outfit. In fact, your philosophies seem to line up perfectly (anti-GLBT, anti-women, authoritarian, militaristic, pro-religious laws & schools.) Lucky you wear different styles of clothes (sometimes) or we could not tell you authoritarian nuts apart.
Antifa violence? A bit of pushing and shoving? A few punches? Worse stuff happens in the parking lot after the average sporting event. What a bunch of cowards & weenies you are! Real free speech people got the absolute crap beaten out of them by cops for daring to protest wars. They lost their jobs and were blacklisted. Real free speech people were arrested by the bus load for the "crime" of having information tables about racist hiring policies & what was really happening during the Vietnam, Iraq and other wars. People were targeted for speaking out against US violence & intervention in Central America.
Your beef? You have been told that you are not welcome to spew your racist, xenophobic, anti-woman, anti-rights nonsense in the middle of OUR city. You are trying to play victim for not being applauded for your support of a narcissistic nut who inherited his wealth, talks smack about immigrants (but has married two), talks "tough" about China while he, his daughter and both his current & one ex-wife have had their stuff manufactured there for years. If Trump were serious, he would have spent the "first 100 days" breaking ground on a new factory. Jeez, even ex-VP Joe Biden's daughter has a line of clothes manufactured in the US. But the Trump Klan? Nope. But, there is a sucker born every minute, as you well prove Mark. And I frankly do not care what your bible says. As I recall from Sunday school, it also says one can sell one's daughter. Nice to know where your moral compass lies.

Re: “Berkeley Farmers Market Canceled Due To Safety Fears Over Pro-Trump, Alt-Right Rally

BTW: IT IS A VIOLATION OF FEDERAL LAW TO COVER YOUR FACE (WEAR A MASK) IN PUBLIC. We will be there arresting and filing charges against anyone seen with a mask or any other face cover. Check the law, it has been on the books since the 1960's (originally an anti-Klan law). You will be convicted and you will spend 3 years in federal prison. Real truth. See you Saturday:)
