Re: “Cal Refuses to Pay Berkeley Minimum Wage

It is not news that UC is a different jurisdiction from the City of Berkeley. Examples abound, often having to do with the UC police force. That said, it would be nice if the university would stop wrapping itself in the gown for this occasion.

Re: “Controversial Temescal Obelisk Put on Hold

the obelisk is a familiar Masonic phallic symbol, exactly as found atop Mormon "temples" and at the Washington Monument, St. Peters Square and so many other places around the globe. This is no obelisk. It is a NAIL. Satanists in the know refer to this as the symbol of satan, as to them it represents the nail which nailed Jesus Christ to the Cross. Indeed, satanists to this very day who perform rituals to call forth the demonic entity of satan himself, do so by calling forth, quite literally, "the nail".

Re: “The Tyranny of Free

Fabulously helpful, clear, and in-depth piece about the old and new quandaries faced by musicians in this time. Exploitation raises its head again in sneaky guises.

Re: “Green Lit: California Legalization Measure Is a Go for 2016

CA rejected Prop 19 for good reason in 2010 and in 2016 they will choose something better. The "Jack Herer Initiative" has launched it's campaign as well for 2016, it's fair and realistic yet progressive and California itself. CCHI2016 and nothing less!

Re: “Board Games That Will Never Leave You Bored

How about some really oldies and cheapies like Scrabble or card games like Old Maid, which is not politically correct but morphed into spinoffs like Fish, or the very old Japanese favorite, Hana Fuda?

Re: “It's Time to Break Out the Plaid

It's called tax revenue that pays for city services to fix thinks like the huge pothole I hit everyday on my street. All the surrounding cities get the revenue that we spend. We get protestors blocking streets. It's a win win win.....

Re: “The Case for Body Cameras

Gammon proves his biased refusal to accept fact by writing the words "this week's disappointing — although not surprising — decision by a Missouri grand jury to not file criminal charges against white police officer Darren Wilson in the shooting death of black teen Michael Brown." He doesn't stop there, citing a civil rights lawyer who condemned Wilson leaving out the facts that Wilson had called for backup and he was pursuing a criminal who had attempted to grab his weapon, who had pummeled Wilson almost unconscious in his police vehicle and had in that attack already caused shots to be fired in Wilson's defense. Gammon's defiant words flow as if he is the ultimate authority still trying the case instead of recognizing an informed grand jury of 12 dedicated citizens already heard the matter and declined to bring charges on any one of five counts based on solid evidence Gammon conveniently neglects to cite. Gammon's screed is the ultimate display of self-entitlement and journalistic irresponsibility - as he seeks to inflame the matter all the more, ignoring the very legal process of this nation. His motives could easily be attributed to blatant racism and disrespect of our nation's judicial system. The lawless rioting and burning of Ferguson, MO and the subsequent three-night destruction of properties in Oakland and elsewhere would certainly not be discouraged by Gammon's inflammatory rhetoric. While police video cameras are a worthy objective, Gammon's attempted but failed conviction of officer Wilson negates any credibility his argument might have had. Gammon's apparent motive seems less to make a case for police cameras, than to make a case against office Wilson.

Re: “Saving the Homeowner Bill of Rights

What we should be doing to these criminal banks is challenging the chains of title, because when they sliced and diced mortgages into securitized packages, robo-signed them, and used MERS to avoid filing at county registrars' offices, they broke the chains of title that have protected us all from property fraud for hundreds of years.

Re: “Oakland Council Approves Circus Safety Rules But Doesn’t Ban Bullhooks for Now

If anyone wants to see how the Ringling handlers use bullhooks on elephants, go to Youtube and search for "Ringling Brothers and Barnum & Bailey Circus elephant abuse." Look at the video and decide for yourself if it is okay to hit elephants in the face with bullhooks or if we should not tolerate animals being abused for entertainment.
