Re: “Big Soda Is Spending Big Money Against Oakland Sugary Beverage Tax Proposal

Monies going into the "general" fund and who is going to oversee this? Just as the monies from "parking tickets go into its OWN fund. Transparency show us the records!

Re: “Oakland-Alameda Authority Confirms Unreleased Renderings of Possible Raiders Stadium at Coliseum Site

Ryan Oakland is not broke and Vegas certainly is not a better city for the Raiders.The Oakland East Bay is a far wealthier region that Las Vegas. I strongly encourage you to get off of the strip and look around. The schools rank second to lowest in the nation and twenty-five percent of the homes are underwater. I do not want to bore you with further economic comparisons between the the two region but just be aware that In reality Vegas is an isolated mono economy solely dependent upon the Casino industry while the Oakland East Bay is a dynamic diversified economy that is doing just fine.

LOL the reason why it sounds like he "hates other cities that want the Raiders" is because the LV proposed site is in direct protest of the FAA. #Oakland4Ever

Re: “Oakland-Alameda Authority Confirms Unreleased Renderings of Possible Raiders Stadium at Coliseum Site

The shrewd and late Al Davis came back to Oakland for a reason. Although football passed him by, he had the presence of mind to realize the extreme value of the bay area market. It would be foolish for his very unstable son to flirt with moving the franchise. So far he has dealt with Oakland very disrespectfully, Sit down and be still Mark. Oakland will get this done.

Re: “Court Ruling Shuts Kitchen Staff Out of Tip Pools, Prompts Some East Bay Restaurants to Consider Going Tipless

Why not make the owners of the businesses pay the kitchen. I can tell you right now the owner of the place i work takes several vacations a year. He has a huge house and owns the property. His retirement is set and he is a lot better off financially than me. So why can't he raise the prices and pay his bills? Instead of taking my hard earned cash.
People like you sicken me. You obviously are not a server. Try living the life before you tell me how to give away my hard earned cash/.

Re: “Oakland-Alameda Authority Confirms Unreleased Renderings of Possible Raiders Stadium at Coliseum Site

Raider did not file trademarks for San Antonio or Carson Jody Payton... Lane Blue filed for the trademark San Antonio Raiders, which cornered Mark Davis to change the Raiders name or it would force Mark to pay a hefty fee to buy Blues Patent Trademark... Carson Raiders never happened... Los Angeles Raiders I believe, still belongs to the Raiders from when they patent it back in early 80's

Re: “Oakland Tenant Advocates File Ballot Initiative to Strengthen Rent Control and Eviction Protections

When the government disturbs prices and wages, a black market is created, because humans are always financially motivated. Renters sell the opportunity to live in their rent-controlled apartments. Workers sell employment opportunities. Physicians sell disability certifications. I'm not arguing that the disturbance of prices and wages is bad policy. I'm arguing only that these effects should be considered, not ignored.

Re: “Oakland-Alameda Authority Confirms Unreleased Renderings of Possible Raiders Stadium at Coliseum Site

The Raiders will stay in Oakland bc they will get the new stadium they want. Davis is just using the move to las vegas to scare the city of Oakland to agree to the new stadium! Vegas is a tourist city keyword tourist. vegas will never have a pro football team they just got a hockey team i give that 5 years tops before that folds and proves to all major sports leagues that vegas is just a tourist city!

Re: “Starving Students Movers Company Caught on Video Dumping Furniture in West Oakland

The company is paying absolutely NO price for this crime!!! They are putting all of the blame and fines on the employees of the company who were caught on camera!!! The management of this branch and the lack of proper training and safety practices are to blame!

Re: “Oakland-Alameda Authority Confirms Unreleased Renderings of Possible Raiders Stadium at Coliseum Site

Bill Drawdy- Vegas is a much better city than in many ways for the Raiders. Oakland is a broke city right now and that is why they are having so many stadium issues, while Vegas is doing much better and major league franchises in all sports are dying to get into the Vegas market because there are over 2.2 million people in the greater Las Vegas area. We know what Oakland can bring to the table, NOTHING. While Las Vegas is an untapped market with endless possibility. Also, the stadium in Vegas will be used for UNLV Football, and a possible MLS expansion franchise.

Anyone who really believes the Raiders are moving to LV are only fooling themselves. The Raiders also filed a trademark for San Antonio and Carson.....how'd that work out? Lol

"Renderings" means pretty pictures designed to fool people into thinking there's a real plan.

Re: “Oakland-Alameda Authority Confirms Unreleased Renderings of Possible Raiders Stadium at Coliseum Site

"But don't count Oakland out just yet."

As usual, the rhetoric assumes that the city needs to play the game as defined by the Raiders. Reality is the other way around. If the Raiders leave, the city is fine. Oakland doesn't need to negotiate, and we don't need to offer any public money to support the team. Mark Davis is like a tenant who doesn't pay rent and then threatens to move out. The city doesn't net anything from the team being here, but for some reason we always talk about ponying up big bucks to keep them from leaving.

McKibben says Oakland might not materialize. He means that an Oakland subsidy might not materialize. That's as it should be.
