Oakland, Berkeley, And East Bay News, Events, Restaurants, Music, & Arts
About this 'Wall' business, and the illegals it is supposed to keep out: Sweep it aside for a moment and riddle me this--Why is there NEVER a discussion about what is required to become a LEGAL immigrant? What do these wretches have to do that they haven't or won't,.. present a fortune in fees, fill out forms in legible English, grease the right consular/embassy palms (as if..), and wait, and wait, and wait, like in 'Casablanca'? This aspect really should be admitted as evidence.. for the source of the problem. Well, one source, the other being US' Monrovian foreign policy..
Go ahead and march. As a buyer of the Saturday edition, you have my permission (not that you'd have to ask..).
I've just mixed Q sauce into my standard-issue salad, but I'll show up next time I'm in Hayward..
No mention of Val's, an 'American diner'?
..and this guy wants to be: a.)Berkeley's next mayor; b.)Berkeley's next pimp.
I wasn't lazy when I became homeless, which I no longer am. Ridiculous attitude.
That said, my concern involves 'self government', which would include: trash; criminals; jerks. Just like 'us'.
What happens to those edged out by the bare bones treatment given affordable housing in Berkeley and the affect market-rate rents will have on surrounding rental housing? Well, while new well-heeled residents will BART or Rapid to work (somewhere else), those forced out but who still work (in Berkeley, for example) will have to drive in from wherever they went, and probably in older, more enfouling vehicles. In the world we have apparently left, affordable digs were readily available--with a little hunting--and we pretty much lived together. The subject of living close to one's employment is another matter.
