Re: “The Corrupt Oakland Official Who Wanted to be a Cannabis Kingpin

Zj Enterprises are very corrupt. Using bullying tactics to steal plants from plant delivery services.
It's a shame that they feel the need to rob growers in this industry.

Re: “The Disenfranchised Rebels of Castro Valley

As an Oakland resident, I can tell you that paying for a city bureaucracy does not give ordinary citizens control. For example, the roads are much worse in Oakland than CV even though Oakland residents voted to pay hundreds of millions for paving. I dont recommend incorporation.

Re: “The Disenfranchised Rebels of Castro Valley

I am not opposed to the idea but have some questions: Other than the hospital we have very little business tax income in Castro Valley, how would we support a city if not by increasing individual home property taxes? Would Alameda County and the state then subsidize? I will admit I voted against this in 2002 because I could not get these answers. I am not educated in how these things work, I am seriously asking for facts so I could make an intelligent decision if this appeared on my ballot.

Re: “The Disenfranchised Rebels of Castro Valley

Kusiak's argument is weak. Creating problems that don't exist for CV residents. We don't need to pay for new buildings like city hall, police force, fire dept, other city workers and the pensions that go along with it. Millions and millions of dollars. I suspect people behind incorporation are not as civic minded as they pretend, but rather have their eyes on power and monetary gain for themselves. If this push progresses, follow the money.

Re: “The Disenfranchised Rebels of Castro Valley

I voted against incorporation in 2002 and would do so again. I have always avoided living in cities, too many local politicians with too much time on their hands making and enforcing unnecessary rules. Same for HOA's, would never buy a house subject to a HOA. I once saw a list of 20 key rules for living in Dublin, CA, and realized that I would have been in violation of 5 of them if I lived there. Here in CasVal, no problem, live and let live. While I don't like the idea of no local control, in practice it has worked out just fine over the last 31 years I have lived here.

Thanks a lot for sharing this true story. There are more evil stories that was hidden. Someone was persecuted by that cannabis Chinese owner. Hope it will be inspected more and be published to the public one day.

Re: “The CBD Industrial Complex

And a Carls Jr in Colorado is introducing a CBD infused burger called the Rocky Mountain High... No, regulation isn't necessary at all.

Re: “The CBD Industrial Complex

More regulation is not necessarily better for consumers, as witness the clusterf*** that California's regulations have made of the cannabis industry. Sensible regulations are however in order to assure ingredients are labeled properly and prevent harmful adulterants. CBD products that are purchased through California's regulated cannabis market are properly tested; those sold in health food stores from the interstate hemp oil market are not.
One other thing to look for: undecarboxylated CBD acid, or CBDA, may be as much or more effective than CBD for some conditions even at lower dosages. It's not clear whether some hemp oil products have CBDA or CBD. Once again, however, products tested through California's licensed cannabis system will properly distinguish CBD from CBDA.

Re: “The Forces Driving Gentrification in Oakland

Jeff,
you get mugged anywhere, so don't make it seem like displacing people of color cleared that issue up. Just say you don't want to live next to a bunch of poor people of color and go. I for one think Oakland has turned its back on its people for, once again, profit and low-key racist reasons. IF YOU CAN'T LIVE IN AN AREA WITH PREDOMINATELY PEOPLE OF COLOR, YOU NEED TO MOVE SOMEWHERE ELSE! No one living here for 40 + years should have to leave their house because you have money. Nobody cares, go about your business.

Re: “Architect Eugene Tssui Might Be the Most Interesting Man in the East Bay

Saarinen. Posthumous fruition. And the Shasta idea for the southeast side ski area is great because it disappears in snow. The 2 mile high bldg would work in Dubai because like the Dutch they dont mind building out into the sea. San Francisco is already its own Disneyland/Museum of poured concrete, lamp black, and a sea of decomposing nuclear waste.

Re: “The Making of a Police Scandal

Man when I was in middle school I had to deal with officer Stancill even in high school From 14 to 16. This dude put me in his car a couple of times after school he would catch me walking home. Threatening to fuck me up and he did one time. And after threatening me to not say anything my families life would be all bad he would drop me off far away from my home so I had to walk farther . So I told my grandma I got in a fight. The quote under his picture say hes for the kids is a damn lie. He beat my fiend badly in the San Leandro high school principals office back around 2006 ish. He had kids looking at every cop car hoping it wasnt him.

Re: “Who is Eric Swalwell Anyway? (And Why Does He Think He Can Be President?)

With democrats like Swalwell, who needs republican.
When asked why he was not calling for impeachment of Trump, numerous times, his response is there is not evidence of a crime.
To that I say, turn on your TV. We have watched Trump commit crimes in living color and admit to them on national TV.
Gutless wonders, ignoring criminal activity for political expediency, is the same as the witness in the room watching the rape and doing nothing.

Re: “Who is Eric Swalwell Anyway? (And Why Does He Think He Can Be President?)

Eric is fine as a Congressmember but he needs to wait a few years before making a move like this. He doesn't have the creds to be on the top of the ticket and doesn't meet the necessary demographic quals for 2020 (neither female nor a person of color). Give it up, Eric, and save your money.

Re: “Who is Eric Swalwell Anyway? (And Why Does He Think He Can Be President?)

If Mr. Swalwell supports animal abuse and the Rowell Ranch Rodeo, he would fit in better with the GOP.

Re: “Who is Eric Swalwell Anyway? (And Why Does He Think He Can Be President?)

I've seen Mr. Swalwell in a number of interviews, and he appears to be reasonable and compassionate. That flew out the door when I heard that he supports rodeo, which is a cruel tradition that should be ended, like burning witches and slavery, among others. So far, Cory Booker is top on my list,--he truly cares about animals, which carries out to humans, environment, etc. We need to get back to being a more caring, unified country.
