Re: “Alameda Health System Leaders Say Hospitals Are 'Safe Spaces' for Undocumented Immigrants

Jason Matthews,

If you're implying that U.S. healthcare is expensive because of services used by undocumented immigrants, than you're incorrect.

The drivers of healthcare costs are many (http://www.pbs.org/newshour/rundown/health…) and the U.S. is more expensive than comparable OECD nations. But it's not because of undocumented immigrants or healthcare services like Medicaid.

Re: “Oakland Ethics Commissioner Accuses Officials of Abusing Access to Free Warriors and Raiders Tickets

This is nothing more than a perk that politicians can use to gain favor or strengthen relationships with people they want on their "team". Why don't they just call it what it is? To even assert that Larry Reid or anybody else spends his or her time at Oracle arena observing stadium operations is intellectually dishonest and downright absurd.

Re: “The Isaan-Style Larb at Larb Thai Food & Tapas Is a Knockout

Yes, they are great. I love their noodle soup as well as their ESAN (Thai Laos Mixed) style food. Bamboo soup, the BBQ ribs, and their soft sticky rice. Mann, it made me hungry just to think about it. Too bad, we live very far away. But, we will go again this weekend.

Can't have enough of good Thai food.

Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

The left has rescued this country so many times from the right (I mean the wrong): Great Depression, Reaganomics, random wars. Really? You think Obama was given a chance to govern? No way. The friggin', selfish, manipulative, cheating, war-mongering republicans (cap left off purposely -- they don't deserve one) wouldn't give Obama an inch. Obama succeeded, as well as he could, with the obstructionist congress that he had. Trump supporters: a basket of deplorables, that we are ALL now riding in, to hell. Don't believe me? Look at his cabinet choices: a bigoted fake news chairman as senior counselor, corporate raiders for treasury, a previously fired general for national security, a climate denier for EPA, a billionaire charter school proponent for education, "It's fun to shoot people" secretary of defense, not to mention the many conflicts of interest of his business dealings. What a mess. Leave it to the left to rescue again. Only this time, the lefts will be way left of center. No more trying to meet the right half-way. There will be such a negative reaction to Trump and his extreme-right policies -- there will be a Bernie Revolution!

Re: “Will Oakland Arts Organizations Find A Home at the Rehabilitated Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center?

Kent Lewandowski, It's a good question. According to the feasibility study, an additional convention center in Oakland wouldn't bring enough revenue; almost all convention centers in the country operate at a loss, the study says. The report also says the Kaiser fails to meet true convention center criteria, since it doesn't have enough "breakout rooms" and so on.

Re: “Will Oakland Arts Organizations Find A Home at the Rehabilitated Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center?

I'm unclear why convention use is ruled out? With tech companies coming to town, they want and need space to host user conventions. Currently I believe the only space in Oakland is the Marriott Convention center.

Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

During the campaign I really didn't get it when Trump yelled "I love the poorly educated"...I believe this group was not offended but rather elated that someone was listening...Are YOU listening Liberals?? We are they and they are we....
Great article Jay!

Re: “Will Oakland Arts Organizations Find A Home at the Rehabilitated Henry J. Kaiser Convention Center?

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.

Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

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.

Re: “Gameheads’ Oakland Video Game Fest At Kapor Center for Social Impact.

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.

Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

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.

Re: “On Class, Race, Culture and the Anti-Trump Movement

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.
