Re: “Coal Terminal Developer Suing City of Oakland, Seeking to Overturn Ban on Fossil Fuel Exports

Oakland already has more than its share of environmental issues, there's no reason to add coal dust to the mix. Phil Tagami is doing what all business people do nowadays; if they can't get their way legally, they bully cities and towns with pricey, bullshit lawsuits figuring they'll break them financially. He would do well to remember the city he's trying to bully. Oaklanders do not take bullying lying down and they don't shy away from a fight.

Re: “SF Chronicle Editor Bans Newsroom Staff From Attending Saturday's Women's March

Disgusting. If you don't cover the news, then what is your actual job? If you don't cover the truth, witness our voices then you are in fact suppressing the news and you deserve neither our respect nor our support. We have enough fake news. We don't need to add news that shuts out female voices.

Re: “Judge Slams Oakland Council's Decision Not to Pay Police Monitor, Orders $100,000 Payment Within Month

Desley Brooks is right about the lack of transparency regarding the Oakland Police Department. Of course the Council, not to mention the Mayor and the City Administrator, need to be deeply involved in oversight of OPD. This is in addition to the new Police Commission.

It has long amazed me that the elected folks who spend their days in city hall have seemed to be so completely disconnected from our police department. Our police department's name is the "Oakland Police Department." It is a part of the government of the city of Oakland. OPD is a city department. We pay the salaries. We are supposed to be protected and kept safe.

I just cannot understand how and why city hall treats OPD as if it came from outer space.

Re: “Oakland Activist Cat Brooks on President Trump: 'My Revolutionary Prayer'

@SRRnPMR ::: snapping back with 'black on black crime' to a deep statement about resistance to oppression only reveals your own ignorance and racism . white on white crime is virtually equal to black on black crime, across the board

shame on you

Re: “Oakland Raiders Officially File To Move To Las Vegas

At this point, who cares anymore? The City of Oakland officials lost all leverage on broke ass Mark Davis by approving more ridiculous one year lease extensions last year. They should have squeezed Davis and required him to make a real commitment to Oakland (a plan and a realistic financing strategy) or get out now. By allowing him to canvass the world for a big money deal, they only played into his hands. Davis has no money and has never been sincere about staying in Oakland.He, like the owner of the Chargers, has no connection or allegiance to the people who have supported this franchise for a 50 years. In the case of the Chargers, ownership never even brought home a Super Bowl trophy in that half century. What happened to Spanos keeping his part of the bargain by fielding a winning team?The NFL owners today are money hungry whores available to be bought by the highest bidder willing to construct a new billion dollar palace for them. It is ridiculous for any public money anywhere to ever again be spent on venues for private sports teams and owners with insatiable egos. Look at Atlanta, they will play in a new billion dollar football stadium next season when they did not even need a new place to play. Similarly, the Braves will open in a new park this year not because of need, but because the suburban white Atlanta fans no longer want to come into the city to attend baseball games. Look at the Warriors. They have the best home court in the NBA at the Oracle with sellouts for over 20 years. The sellouts and total fan support started way before the winning ways of the last 3 years. Never the less, the shine of big money in SF sends them off into the abyss. No loyalty, no sentiment, no thanks to Oakland, just greed for more. Ask Jed York and the 49ers how that attitude is working for them in Santa Clara. There will be a time when the Warriors are not winning nearly every game. They and the Raiders will miss the true and loyal Oakland fans, when empty seats in SF and Las Vegas outnumber those filled with butts. In the mean time, Mark Davis deserves to be in partnership with a casino boss like Sheldon Adelson or even better, a group of wall street low life from Goldman Sachs. What he doesn't deserve is to be connected with a sincere group of folks with a sense of loyalty and integrity like Ronnie Lott, Marcus Allen and partners, who realize that the Raiders only real home can NEVER be anyplace but Oakland. Whether from a decrease in participation by kids and lawsuits by former players because of CTE, market saturation driven by greed or by ignoring long time loyal fans, NFL owners like Mark Davis will eventually manage to kill the golden goose.

My name is Mr Mathew Gray a citizen of USA. i have been scammed by 6 different Internet international lender, they all promise to give me a loan after making me pay several fees which yield nothing and amounted to no positive result. i lost my hard earn money and it was a total of 10,000USD. One day as i was browsing through the internet with tears on my eye i came across a testimony of man who was also scammed and eventually got linked to a legit loan company called Tony Harton Loan Company where he finally got his loan, so i decided to contact the same loan company and then told them my story on how i have been scammed by 6 different lenders who did nothing but to course me more pain. I explain to the company by mail and all they told me was to cry no more because i will get my loan in their company and also i have made the right choice of contacting them. i filled the loan application form and proceeded with all that was requested of me and I was given a loan amount of $78,000 Dollars by this great Company (TONY HARTON LOAN COMPANY} managed by Mr.Tony Harton and here i am today happy because TONY HARTON COMPANY has given me a loan so i made a vow to my self that i will keep testifying on the internet on how i got my loan.

Re: “SF Chronicle Editor Bans Newsroom Staff From Attending Saturday's Women's March

I can't be alone in finding it suspicious that this policy is suddenly being implemented on the eve of the inauguration of a controversial, divisive Republican president, but had no such policy against demonstrations during the last eight years amidst the Tea Party protests against a Democratic president.

Re: “SF Chronicle Editor Bans Newsroom Staff From Attending Saturday's Women's March

So Ms. Cooper wants to ban her staff from their constitutional rights to free speech and assembly because they work for a metropolitan newspaper? I'd like to suggest that under the current administration these rights may disappear so we better use them while we still may.

Re: “Elle's Belles

Absolutely spot-on review of this repugnant film. I decided to see it based on the glowing reviews I had seen beforehand that compared it to Hitchcock and because I'd always had a soft spot for well-made French films given my earlier experiences with such character-driven delights as "Pauline at the Beach," "Diva," "Manon of the Spring" and the like.

If only I had seen your review beforehand. (I came across it only after seeing the film and being incredulous that no one called this overdose of misogyny out for being what it is). The only thing worse than seeing such an "I hate-you hate-we all hate" mess, if that's possible, is seeing a such a mess that hides its ugly interior with a pretense of being high art. Highly ridiculous and shameful, I'd say.
