Re: “Major Pot Company Hit With Six Counts of Securities Fraud

This company is the epitome of a penny stock scam. I have been watching these jokers for more than three years, and the behavior of Bruce Perlowin and his cronies is disgusting. What a shame to see them seek ill-gotten gains by hijacking the theme of hemp legalization rather than building a real company.

Re: “#LibbyLeaks: Oakland Mayor Launches Investigation Against City and Police Whistleblowers

Senor Boom-Boom knows not of what he writes: "Same story as reported by a real journalist, not a muckraker."

Senor: Although "muckraker" may seem to be a nasty term to the journalistically uninitiated, its meaning is laudatory.

To wit: "The term muckraker was used in the Progressive Era to characterize reform-minded American journalists ...the modern term is investigative journalism, and investigative journalists today are often informally called "muckrakers."

The story as stated here is just that: investigative journalism or muckraking.

Re: “Oakland Coal Vote Days Away — But City Still Hasn’t Released Crucial Study

Seems like Ms. Shaaf's who worked for Ignacio, and later Brown, adminstration is an extension of Jerry's. Deeply disappointing to those whose children attended school with her. It seems we get the same old, same old in the admin office, and this whole deal is deeply unpopular with the people who live in this town. It is especially bad as Phil Tagami has done good work here and benefitted a great deal from city coffers, has such contempt for us all. Poor Oaktown, every one gets over on this town, and our fellow citizens always have to settle for less. I hope to live long enough to see an administration that can change the paradigm.

Re: “Major Pot Company Hit With Six Counts of Securities Fraud

HEMP is not POT! This is not used like cannabis. The gov't may have classified it in the same category but more states are legalizing as it is used for materials used in clothing and fibers as a food additive. As to the breaking of SEC rules that is yet to be proven i a court of law.

Best breakfast in the area, and a genius "off-the-menu" (used to be on there) patty melt anywhere. Always delicious, and quick,even during busy weekday lunch. The staff are charming, bright, and exceptional.

Re: “Black Oakland Police Officers Slam Schaaf over OPD Texting, Human Trafficking Scandals

This has been going on a long time. What gets me is if there was a DEEP investigation into ALL policing agencies, we would be under marshal law. The whole USA. Our sheriffs dept. is a mess as well. Also
I was so surprised to hear our Mayor identify the race of the "racist texters".....racism has no color! We all have them in our family. PERIOD!

Re: “Choakland: An Exploration of Oakland's Pro-Sports Meltdowns

Doesn't say the swept, says they cruised to the title. Also, every A's fan remembers the HR by McGwire. Bottom line, that was a crushing series loss which was the main point.

Re: “Black Oakland Police Officers Slam Schaaf over OPD Texting, Human Trafficking Scandals

The Oakland city administrator's plan to contain the OPD scandal by going after the whistle blowers reeks of desperation. Schaaf reportedly was not concerned about years of OPD misconduct until scandal erupted on her watch, and Landreth's plan guarantees that OPD misconduct will continue. We need an INDEPENDENT police commission: the city council is inept and often laughable, and Brooks and McElhaney have reportedly committed official misconduct themselves.

Re: “After a Seven-Year Run, Liba Falafel Is Taking Its Food Truck Out of Commission

EGH's comment says it all. A measly 6% profit and they think she's still greedy and underpaying her staff. EGH, you're so EBX it makes me sad. She's not greedy at all. Housing "activists" and good old fashion NIMBYs have created a perfect storm of housing development obstruction in time when tens of thousands of people are flocking here for really high paying jobs. That's why her employees can't afford rent anymore!

Re: “Oakland Coal Vote Days Away — But City Still Hasn’t Released Crucial Study

Claudia Cappio follows Jerry's orders...He wants the coal here and Claudia was put in place as the Assist. City Admin. to run that department and make it happen....Claudia is Jerry's designated liar and will say what he wants her to say.....Bets used to be taken by staff when she was head of CEDA as to what lies she would tell at council meetings to sell what ever projects that Jerry wanted pushed....Jerry is running Oakland for his developer buddies at the expense of the citizens of Oakland. Claudia Cappio knows exactly what she is doing and I can guarantee it is not for Oakland's benefit!

Re: “#LibbyLeaks: Oakland Mayor Launches Investigation Against City and Police Whistleblowers

The "women in charge movement?" What century did that comment emanate from, Mr. Patton? I didn't vote for Ms. Schaaf, whom I refuse to refer to as Libby, but I don't find fault with her as a woman or for the fact that she named the militaristic, occupying army culture that allows a majority male force to pass around a girl and brutalize with impunity, for what it is.
No one mayor nor police chief made this mess, although Jerry Brown can be said to be more responsible for the Riders than anyone, and no one person could possibly know how to fix it. By the way, what's your manly solution?

Re: “Black Oakland Police Officers Slam Schaaf over OPD Texting, Human Trafficking Scandals

Vivian, there are a lot of Black Cops, but not a lot in command. She has not chosen to share the race of the White Cops under investigation, and she shouldn't have the Black Cops. It doesn't matter what others do or say, they are not elected officials or the Mayor.
