Re: “City Forcing West Oakland’s Alliance Metals to Close on August 20, But Supporters Argue Recyclers Have No Safety Net

I'm surprised and appalled at the shoddy journalism here. Lots of quotes from the for-profit company that is exploiting the homeless. Lots of quotes from the documentarian (who actually seems to be using this issue to promote his film). No mention of the three other recycling centers within a 10-block radius? You quote Alliance on how much they paid out last year but not on how much they made (hint: at least twice that in PROFIT). You have an unattributed quote from the ACLU—could it have been made by Executive Director Abdi Soltani? Not a single quote from someone who lives in the area and has lived there for many years? Or the local pastor who is helping to ensure that Alliance's victims get the services they need?

This isn't about gentrifiers not liking the shopping cart parade. It's neighbors being appalled at the victimization of our unhoused neighbors by Alliance. If the company is so concerned for them, why hasn't it put up a port-a-potty even?

Lazy, lazy reporting.

Re: “Can Black-Owned Restaurants Combat Gentrification?

Oakland has a lot of heart to it. Oakland is a very proud city for all races but for black folks, it's got so much pride and so much to celebrate. Oakland is proud and for good reason too. It's the home of the black panther party, home of the Black Muslim bakery, home of many famous black musicians and music groups such as Toni Tone Tone, Too Short, Luniz, Dru Down, Mc Hammer, The Pointers Sisters, Sly and the Family Stone, and many more. It's also home to a large number of many successful black owned businesses and I know this for a fact cause I'm from the Bay Area and I know Oakland very well. Oakland also has positive things going on in its black community, big time. Kingston 11 is carrying on a rich tradition.

Re: “From Growing Marijuana Outdoors to Maximum THC

There is nothing more natural than letting marijuana grow outdoors under the sun. Marijuana grown outdoors have enhanced taste and potency, plus they bear more buds than when grown indoors. Its sad that some farmers have to choose to grow indoors because of the state of marijuana legalization today.

Re: “Marijuana Legalization Proponents Sue Sen. Dianne Feinstein Over Proposition 64

DINO or not, there's not much progressive about the Democratic Party. If anything at all.

Feinstein is more like a dinosaur than a DINO. Her ideas are ancient and tend towards violence and repression far more than civil liberty or rights.

In addition she's definitely a one percenter, filthy rich and very out-of-touch with ordinary folks.

Re: “'A People's Port': Unions, Community Groups Hope to 'Revive' Oakland with Jobs Agreement at Army Base Project

I totally support Myre's work to Ban The Box.

But I can't help but notice that she's also on the planning commission and regularly blocks projects where she is involved with the negotiations when they don't go in her favor.

I would be incredibly surprised if this doesn't get killed in the planning commission by her, costing us millions of dollars in investment.

In was born and raised in Oakland, and live with my wife and kid in our home in the Laurel. The outrage in this page is ridiculous and misplaced. I've been waiting for a spot like this beer garden here for over 20 years. I can't wait for my family and I to become regulars there.

A charter school can cut corners that a public school cannot - in this case, a thorough environmental review before putting children into a facility.

Why don't you rally to support an Alliance Metals in you neighborhood ?
I am sure that these people, and of course you and your neighbors, will be very happy with this relationship.

Re: “Bay Area Weed Authors Throw Free Book Party 'Lit LIT!' Aug. 17

What facts are these authors (not so-called) withholding from the public? Who do you know is intimately involved with medical marijuana and not aware of the very real dangers that are present from just growing/handling what is still a Schedule I substance? Why exactly are you so angry? Have you spoken to any one of these authors?

Re: “Las Vegas Now A Bust for Most California Medical Pot Patients

So let's put this question of "reciprocity" in another light and use the right to bear arms (2nd Amendmebt) as an anology. Let's say we were talking about guns and the right to carry a firearm, if I buy a gun and follow the laws of the land and someone else goes further wanting to aquire a concealed weapons permit does that give the permit holder more of a right to gear arms? A larger percentage of individuals don't go the extra mile and request or require a permit to do what is a civil right when they wish to protect themselves so why should an individual who has the right to choose what kind of medicine or product they want to ingest or enjoy have to go the extra mile and get a permit or special permission in order to do so? Just say'in that we all need to stop the madness and stigma placed on marijuana by our government and corporate capitalist from the 70's and look at the facts and the future of camnabis, a plant put on this planet by God for a purpose and s reason!

Think about it and think outside of the media and government controlled box!

Re: “Bay Area Weed Authors Throw Free Book Party 'Lit LIT!' Aug. 17

I have never seen such a blatant attempt to profiteer from the ignorance of medical patients than these so-called authors and individuals putting everyone's livelihood in jeopardy because they won't and don't tell the truth and the facts to the people! Until the IRS says you can "sell", "grow" and "profit" from a controlled substance NO one is safe and everyone will be sorry when the Federal Tax Man comes calling or audits you! While these individuals proport you to blatantly violate federal law without explaining the risks and potential of prosecution and the loss of your assets and livelihood by having to spend ten years to life in prison is preposterous. The fact is plain and simple folks, anyone having anything to do with marijuana can't avoid federal law and the IRS, DOJ & DEA! Uncle Sam wants YOU in federal prison and your assets for following state and local municipalities laws simply so they can "profiteer" themselves, if they thought they could do it themselves without the same threats we ALL face then they'd be doing it on their own! Wake up America and smell what the cannabis is cooking, cannabis has become a cash cow for California and were infecting the rest of the greedy nation now!
