Re: “Complaint Filed Against Oakland Police Chief for False Statements

Chip Johnson was correct. There is no right in Oakland. The left eats itself daily.

Re: “Monday’s Briefing: Oakland Gets 255 Legal Pot Permit Applications; Another State Legislator Accused of Sexual Harassment

Sexual harassment claims and incidents being reported are the tip of the iceberg. This is going to get huge.

Re: “Mama's Royal Cafe Reopens Under New Ownership

Will be interesting to see how it turns out. It used to be a good place to eat with staff that was a bit rude on purpose.

Re: “Despite Canceled Hearing, Oakland Councilmembers Still Plan to Talk About Controversial ICE Raid

The hearing had been scheduled on October 12. A month before the Internal Affairs complaint was even filed. The hearing was not about the IA complaint. It was about OPD's actions during the West Oakland ICE raid. Schaaf announced on November 21 that she would support a policy to prevent all future OPD cooperation with HSI or ICE.

Re: “Monday’s Briefing: Oakland Gets 255 Legal Pot Permit Applications; Another State Legislator Accused of Sexual Harassment

Back in the day, many decades ago, when it was cool to be a stoner (especially as opposed to an alky), no one could even have hallucinated that pot would become a mainstream economic sector.

Personally I still think it's an hallucination, but I haven't had a toke yet today.

Re: “Overland Country Bar and World Ground Cafe Shut Their Doors

Oh, no!!!!!!! Starved for years without a country bar and music spot and now after a couple of years it's gone. Sad loss for us country music fans and Oakland. I'll be dead before another one comes to town.

Re: “Study: Higher Minimum Wage and Other Progressive Policies Have Not Hurt Economic Growth in California

And of all things coming from one of the most liberal institutions in the country. Give it a rest as to what comes out of the UC System and the progressive agenda.

Re: “Hasta Muerte Serves Coffee with a Side of Resistance

I hope there are no neighborhood watch meetings. They dont build or celebrate community. In areas with changing demographics, they feel as divisive as crime itself to long time locals.

Re: “Study: Higher Minimum Wage and Other Progressive Policies Have Not Hurt Economic Growth in California

Well "a study" is just that. While the study might have some merit the author seems to have an agenda in conducting this study so why not publish it in a peer reviewed economics journal? Let other determine if the basis of the claims made has any statistical or useful merit? Then make fuss about it!

Re: “New Oakland Fire Chief: City Needs to Hire More Firefighters and Inspectors

I'm trying to come up with a clever phrase for Mayor Schaaf to use regarding public safety, especially fire safety (the other kind--having to dodge flying lead--is probably not worth the bother).

How about "Oakland loves to shout 'fire' everywhere because we really care."

A clever phrase can work much more effectively than actually solving a problem. Especially in Oakland.

Re: “Citing Possible School Closures and Fiscal Problems, Oakland School Board Denies New Charter School Petition

The student on the board has been poorly trained in Public School governance. Not really her fault; the adults do not seem to understand their jobs either. The Board members may not legally "vote against the proposal out of philosophical opposition to charters." The Board's role is to see that the laws governing public schools are implemented fairly, consistently, and without bias and/or discrimination. They are NOT legislators. Charter law is clear and OUSD staff knows that this school meets all requirements. Too bad our Bd of Ed is more interested in grandstanding than good governance.

Re: “Cases Against Police Officers Who Sexually Exploited Underage Girl Known as Celeste Guap Fall Apart

I'm seeing more outrage over Al Franken's "gesture" towards a woman's boobs - than is being exhibited over what happened to this woman. THIS IS THE OUTRAGE! The fact we seem to have a double standard about who we are getting "offended" over the way they're being treated! NINE WOMEN WERE RAPED BY JAMES DEEN - AND I DON'T SEE ANYONE TALKING ABOUT "RETRAINING" THE PORN INDUSTRY!!! #METOO www.sexworkersanonymous.com

Re: “San Leandro and Berkeley See Significant Rise in Reported Hate Crimes

Does anyone but me find it very strange that in a region of seven million people, not one single hate crime against white people is ever recorded?
