Re: “Oakland Officials Describe Vandalism After Anti-Donald Trump Rally As Some Of Worst They've Seen

A citizen's Right of peaceful protest is in the Constitution. There is no Right to break the windows of businesses, start fires, write grafitti on sidewalks and buildings, to encourage confrontation and block Freeways.

We have worked so hard to make Oakland a great place to live and work. It is starting to blossom. Art gallaries, restaurants, new businesses, jobs and more to come. Supposedly youre protesting Donald Trump. He does not live in Oakland. Most residents do not support these violent protests. Please, respect your city, our city and the people who live here. C.Burd

Re: “Berkeley Landlord Tax Easily Passes

The final quote from Krista Gulbransen makes me feel uneasy; it almost sounds like a veiled threat. My assumption in voting for Measure U1 was that the tax was significant but not unsustainablethat profit margins would cover a large part of the cash going to taxes. Is there any way of measuring the real effect that this will have on landlords ability to make repairs and upgrades to old buildings? Aren't there laws on the books to ensure that necessary maintenance is done?

Sincerely, someone who lives in an old building in Berkeley.

P.S. it strikes me that 166% is a very misleading and alarmist way of explaining a tax hike from 1.08% to 2.88%.

Re: “Access Denied

The leads are inciting anger and bullying people. I cannot understand why this should be allowed online. They are doing this in Walnut Creek and all the complaints are ignored

Re: “Eleanor Roosevelt's Great Lesbian Love Affair

I am basically writing you back to give you all of my thanks. Ever since I finished working on the first kit (Love Me Again), my results have been excellent. All I can say is YES, YES YES!! You have been a great help to me and very patient as well. That is so important. When people start working on things that are new to them, there is so much that they don't know. Especially since working on such kits you are calling on spirits for help and you don't want to make any mistakes because you're afraid that anything could go wrong if the work is not done right (such as myself) and I know that I have questioned you a lot. I can admit that I was having some doubts at first and that I was just hoping that this relationship could be helped due to all of the negativity in the relationship. Now I know that there was help and hope for us once again. You have been the best as far as love spell is concern and responding to questions in a timely manner. And I can also tell that you as the support staff are very bright and well educated people. I just wanted to leave you with this note. But mainly you. Even though I know that there are other spell caster, you have been the one that i have really seen a good result from the casting of the spell....thanks once again Dr LALA ( or Or call him on +16692213962

This self-indulgent expression helps what? Glass companies. Police officers who collect overtime pay. Law-and-order wingers who want evidence for a more repressive state. More useful forms of protest, please!

Re: “Oakland Celebrates Soda Tax Victory as 'Huge Win Over Corporations'

Studies show that no matter what amount of education on the health dangers of, e.g. smoking (or soda consumption), people do not change their habits until their pockets are hit.

Re: “Berkeley Landlord Tax Easily Passes

@George - New construction is exempt from the higher tax for 12 years. And construction built after 1980 in Berkeley is statutorily exempt from rent control.

Re: “Did An Oakland Cop Kill His Wife?

So EBX accepts the Alameda County DA's report on ex-OPD officer Gantt that there was no wrong doing, but is suspicious of Alameda County DA's report on the death of Lopez? Does not raise a single question about Gantt's trustworthiness, or that he may of mishandled evidence in an ongoing murder investigation where the suspect could face life in prison? Nope, DA says it was all fine so we'll leave it at that.

It seems like Bond-Graham only gives the benefit of the doubt to anyone in the OPD when they become a client of the authors friend Dan Siegel. If Siegel was not representing Gantt the only thing you would have heard about Gantt is how some innocent person may be going to jail because Gantt mishandled evidence.

Re: “Thousands of Demonstrators March Through Downtown Oakland to Protest Election of Donald Trump

The hate displayed by many protestors is amazing! So much for tolerance and open mindedness and respect. Just mobs of angry, misinformed young people who have far too much idle time on their hands.
Why aren't they protesting the unconstitutional and deplorable wars in the Middle East? The job killing TPP? Hello?

Re: “Oakland Celebrates Soda Tax Victory as 'Huge Win Over Corporations'

This is theft. This is another poor tax on low and middle income people to fund more failed liberal social programs.

Re: “Thousands of Demonstrators March Through Downtown Oakland to Protest Election of Donald Trump

So funny that the Democrats before the election were like "Accept the results" but now since they didn't get their way, they're angry about the results.

Re: “Berkeley Landlord Tax Easily Passes

Such an increase as passed will not make Berkeley more attractive to builders, who realize what the Berkeley voters/City Counsel give today they can take away next election. If you had the money to construct residential housing, would you do it in Berkeley or some other city without rent control, especially when you know when one of your tenants wants to move, they will not give you formal notice and allow you to increase the rent to the market value for a new tenant, but rather will sub-lease through underground sources [which reduces the amount of housing on the open market].

Re: “Berkeley Progressives Win Big, but Lament Trump Presidency

I have been told, and this has been confirmed by countless longtime Berkeley residents, that anything south of University is South Berkeley.

The article could use an edit, for it does not make complete sense. Nancy Armstrong Temple was arrestsed at the Adeline encampment AND the encampment at Milvia & Allston is in S. Berkeley, it is where the Adeline campers moved when evicted from the Adeline spot.

Well we shall see if he helps the homeless community located at Allston and Milvia not South Berkeley where we have been evicted from

Re: “Alameda’s District Attorney Wants to Charge Oakland Cops, But Key Witness Sent to Florida

For a traffic accident the Beverley Hills Court flew me from Texas to California and back , only to find they did not give me the right date , and for a crime they cannot buy Them a planer ticket , someone is kidding me , this aside there is such thing as electronic statement across the country , simply have them all in court , all sworn in all supervised by a Judge or DA and get the statement , truth is they want to protect these rotten cops a disgrace to their fellow Officers
