Re: “BRIX 581

Going to Brix on a Sunday morning for chicken fried steak has become as natural as getting coffee every morning. Now that they have added the bottomless mimosas I'm a happy camper.

Re: “Catahoula Coffee Company

Real award winning coffee, not just burned beans like Peets. More like McCallums on Solano many years ago when they sold ice cream and coffee. And also, real people, of all sorts, meeting, talking, working on wifi - a great place to hang out.

Re: “Yancie Taylor's Sunday Jazz Concert and Jam Session

I cannot think of a better way to spend my Sunday evenings. Geoffrey's is a very comfortable setting, Yancie Taylor is fantastic. The band and the music are wonderful. I also love the Jam session. The dinner is only $5.00 and finger licking good.

Re: “Greg Palast film: The Best Democracy Money Can Buy

Greg Palast presentation of facts left real gaps for concern. If Palast has verified documents of these horrifically inaccurate voter list frauds then why hasn't he handed them over as public records to be vetted by other journalists? No one he showed his lists to responded with any recognition of their own documents. It appeared that Palast has doctored documents. If that's the case his facts and figures become suspect. Palast's dramatic flair is fun at times, but it has gotten in the way of his respect or regard for accuracy. If his facts aren't reliable then he's significantly more hindrance to the progressive movement than he is support or whistle-blower.

Re: “Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson Hit in Face with Pie at Event, Assaults Protester in 'Bloody' Scene

A little context might be helpful. KJ was instrumental in getting a quarter-billion dollar subsidy for the NBA Kings to stay in Sacramento. The City gets the stadium, so no property tax revenue, and absolutely no control over the Kings, so in spite of a $9 million hole in the City's budget, it has no leverage if the Kings decide to extort *another* stadium from the City (this new one is the second such act of extortion).

JFYI, professional sports has an anti-trust exemption, so it can charge monopoly rents. Heck, Al Davis has extorted financial concessions from both Oakland and Anaheim for the Raiders.

Most hilarious of all are the commenters calling KJ "liberal" -- you know, sympathetic to working people. This entire scheme is an enormous gift to the plutocrats who own the Kings. Forbes reports that since the stadium's approval, the Kings are worth roughly double what Vivek Ranadive and his merry band of plutocrats (over)paid for them!

Not enough? David Cay Johnston reports that 75% of George W. Bush's net worth comes from a stadium deal in Arlington TX. Yep, KJ is liberal all right...and I'm the queen of England!

One more bit of business: The entire Sacramento oligarchy (from news media to elected officials) conspired to suppress an initiative requiring a popular vote about this stadium deal. The stadium would almost certainly have lost, too.

So... Pie in the face? I say KJ is luck it wasn't a guillotine.

Re: “Treasure Island Music Fest Announces New Location, Killer Views of Oakland, East Bay Cityscape

Isn't this the last year that it will be on Treasure Island? I thought I heard that somewhere. I'm sure they will continue to have it, as long as it makes money, right? No such thing as a music festival that's a one-time thing. Woodstock doesn't fit today's value$

Re: “City Told Developers to Fix Infamous West Oakland Artist Warehouse. Instead, They Demolished It.

property owners who illegally raise the rent will not be stopped by more laws - they already don't care what the laws are. It will still be on their renters to report the abuses, as it is now. This law may not be designed to punish law-abiding property owners but that is the effect.
Instead of Oakland collecting higher fees for more laws, why don't they enforce the ones they already have?

This is your mayor and he's not going to jail? Shame on all you virtue signalling losers. There's a storm coming and you deserve to be blown away.

Re: “Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson Hit in Face with Pie at Event, Assaults Protester in 'Bloody' Scene

Was directed to this story by USAToday, when they attributed facts to "alternative weekly newspaper East Bay Express" on the front page of the sports section last Friday. Isn't USAToday distributed nationally? Not too shabby.

Re: “Sacramento Mayor Kevin Johnson Hit in Face with Pie at Event, Assaults Protester in 'Bloody' Scene

It's about time someone took down one of these pie-throwing douchebags. That's the assault here. Johnson simply defended himself. For all he knew, this dumbass could've had a gun.

Re: “Plan Would Require City of Oakland To Be Part Owner of Any New Marijuana Business

Shame on Oaktown! The City is already "profiting" from unlawful businesses (dispensaries) "selling" the controlled substance marijuana by "taxing" the illegal activities! Now they want 25% ownership too, I'd like to hear them explain to Uncle Sam and the IRS how a governmental entity can blatantly violate current state law and federal law! Can't anyone see what the hell is going on here in California? They'll put individuals and organization lives, assets and livelihoods at risk of potential prosecution just so they can "cash in on our use"! Our own lawmakers have turned the "Compassionate Use Act" upside down and made it the "Compensation from our Use Act"! Wake up cannabis community and smell what our local and state governments are cooking! California has created its own drug cartel from the grey area they created, if you can't beat the "black market" just form your own "grey market" and take over the industry with corporate and government greed!
