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.

Why is anyone paying an 'independent' court monitor if he cannot follow unacceptable behavior under his nose???

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

I'm simply at a loss parenthetically not surprised by the anti black comments... Why do some find their best response is to say Go Back You Africa? That's easy to say Mr. Mertz... Let's see Poland is it, yes that's the origin of your name. Holocaust right? Your people fled, right? Ummmm... I'm guessing you're angry by now as you should be because that was a horrible act against humanity and America help Save and continues to support you by honoring those who died and those who survived. But your people fled to a country built on the backs of Slaves who didn't ask to come nor wanted to or NEEDED to like yours. So by your logic let's all return from whence we can and give the Indiana their land back... Dumbass. As far as the sexual applications, Johnson should have never permitted himself to be in a place of probability but in this country we ALL are innocent until proven guilty. Don't get upset when the law of justice actually works for a non-white. Lastly, yes he's a public official, but first he's a man. I CERTAINLY doubt any man of any public office, or a simple husband, father etc. would not punch a person who has escalated from heckling to physical assault. If any of you are willing to eat his pie.... Then go get some in your face.

Re: “Soda Industry Spent $67 Million Fighting Sugar Taxes and Health Labels Since 2009

The product and political approach of Big Soda both have much in common with those of Big Tobacco. The playbook includes silence on the reality of the health-damaging effects of the product, distraction, deflection, and, of course, the ever-popular Big Lie.

Mr. O’Hara’s comment is insightful and relevant in that one of the memes that Big Soda has inserted by into the conversation is the canard that a soda tax is ineffective in achieving its goal of reducing sugary beverage consumption. Of course, big soda feels no need to be consistent in their arguments. Anything their strategists think may be effective will do just fine.

The particulars of the Big Soda campaign in Oakland feature wrapping themselves in the false flag of concern about the welfare of economically disadvantaged communities (who knew they cared about regressive taxes?). And then there’s the pushing of the recently manufactured “grocery tax” lie out of the mouths of recruited minority business owners (amazing how they all thought up the same argument!), with, of course, colorful contextual images of fresh fruit and so on.

Re: “Online Poll Attacks Oakland Councilmember Rebecca Kaplan, Claims False Endorsements for Peggy Moore

The tactic of saying 'Kapalan has precided over Oakland while there is a widening income inequality' as though the very problem she has fought tirelessly to address is her fault starts of the Poll with very disappointing retoric. This kind of language I see in wider political spheres (Presidential and state elections) where the pointing out of the problem by people who have policies that will surely make it worse is a tactic to get people to vote for them. Disappointing and frustrating to see this happening on a local level and not true to an Oakland community ethos that many here appreciate and ascribe to. Makes me even more suspicious of Libby Scarf's motives also.

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

To all the people supporting the mayor for his beat down of this protester you guys should go fuck yourselves the fact of the matter is this man assaulted another man with a fucking pie not a baseball bat not his fists not his spit even so for all of you talking tough about hey if you're going to attack someone then you should make sure you have a backup plan or I would've broken his arms or whatever the hell you guys are commenting on as far as this protester is concerned at least he had the balls to stand up for a conviction that he has against the Mayor. A piece of shit mayor who has not done anything other than cost more revenue and tax problems for Sacramento. You people can tough talk all you want but our mayor is a piece of human garbage and waste.He is a child molester and a falsifier of records and has stolen money from the very city that you live in and love like I do. This man is a terrible mayor. The fact that this young man, protester, whatever you want to call him is getting charged with assault on a public official which could lead to a lot of jail time is pathetic. it was a pie and for you you people cheering on our mayor for beating the shit out of this guy makes me very very sad for the residents of Sacramento. it is obvious to me that the elite have come to Sacramento and that gentrification is a real thing. This kind of thing just proves once again that those in power, those with money can get away with whatever they want. You defenders of our mayor's actions make me sick. You are piles of human fucking waste!

Re: “Low-Level Cops Facing Punishment in East Bay Sex Crimes Scandal

Very disturbing is an understatement. The Negotiated Settlement Agreement was supposed to address exactly these long standing deficiencies and, to date, the Federal monitoring costs have exceeded $30 million. The failure of the City to ensure compliance is the reason we are calling upon the voters to pass Measure LL to establish an independent commission of Oakland residents. Something different must be done to provide Oakland residents with the ability to hold the Department accountable when they engage in such abysmal and unethical (if not illegal) behavior. We deserve better.

To the naysayers, Thompson is lucky he can still speak and see! Had this been someone else you might be attending Thompson's funeral. If you want to hit, expect to be hit back; that turn the other cheek scenario doesn't work for all!
