Re: “Barbara Lee Endorses Kamala Harris for President; Progressive Heads Explode

If DC wants their money back due to high speed rail reductions, then how about CA contribution to the Federal government getting back or at least a credit due to the 25% shut down of the Federal gov't for 35 days:)?

Re: “Should We Break Up PG&E?

Three strikes and they're out, whether a breakup or a public agency. Strike one: Erin Brockovich's well-documented cancer causing water in the Central Valley; strike two: San Bruno gas line explosion; strike three: Camp Fire (other potential strikes being the fires which preceded the Camp Fire). Out! They are murderers. They should be made to pay a huge cost in exchange for their blatant, repetitive, and wrong-headed takings of human life. Lives.

Re: “East Bay Lawyer Makes Domestic Abusers Pay

Tia, your fans would love an update on your recent cases and fundraising! It is a shame that corrupt court officers like Alison Urdan have quasi-judicial immunity, as their abuse has caused as much or more damage to families as the batterers. That is a different fight, one that will require legislative changes.

Re: “Should We Break Up PG&E?

Uhhh... Eric, I suggest you have a look at history. The indigenous people practiced regular and controlled burns to manage the forest and bend it to their most effective use.

"John Muir" management is part of what led to these disasters. Note I say PART.

Re: “Is Vaping Cannabis Safe?

Hi! Can anyone share with an experience of smoking marijuana like this https://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/chr-super-og through a vaporizer.
Is it the same as using a bong or not? What are the advantage and disadvantages of using a vaporizer where smoking marijuana?
(whether to buy or not to buy? if yes, then what the best compact vaporizer?) thanks

Re: “Should We Break Up PG&E?

This article is pretty solid but has very serious disinformation in it regarding forest management. The assertion that forests need to be 'managed' by 'thinning' and 'livestock grazing' is absolutely the opposite of the truth. Thinning and grazing *increase* wildfire danger by denuding landscapes of nutrients, and moisture.

These absurd pushes for dangerous and environmentally destructive thinning and grazing arise every time there is a serious wildfire, and invariably come from foresters who were trained in UC programs that were funded by the timber and ranching industries - industries which provide the programs with instructors and teaching materials that are dominated by their pro logging and pro grazing falsehoods.

To see how forest wildfire really works and how it is best managed through concentrating on targeted prevention around populated areas and homes, see "The Myth of Catastrophic Wildfire" by Chad Hanson, PhD. at:

Re: “Should We Break Up PG&E?

The advocates for a public agency assume that such an agency will be able to create an ideal situation. But history shows that public agencies are just as likely to make errors. Look at the problems that led to Grey Daviss recall. This was a public agency in the power business. Lets assume a public agency takes over PG&E and does all the things that TURN want. Then rates go way up and people and politicians complain. A fire still happens and the public agency is responsible and rates go even higher to rebuild a future Paradise. Yes PG&E must do more but there is no easy solution. We the users must pay for a more fire safe system. Sorry, no free lunch.

Re: “Should We Break Up PG&E?

The article does a fairly good job of laying out th problem but only Jamie Court gets it right. CCAs should provide renewable power, energy efficiency, local generation, demand response, EVs, etc but the key thing that needs to occur is that PG&E needs Die!

If generation procurement, energy efficiency, and EVs are taken away from PG&E, then they wont be able to build unneeded generation such as the Colusa Generating station, but they will continue kill and destroy California citizens through their major profit center not doing maintenance. PG&E normally only completes half the maintenance that it claims in their rate cases; the money goes to profits and executive bonuses. California citizens lose their homes and lives because lines and equipment isnt maintained so the criminals can benefit.

A solution to this parasitic enterprise is to use the California Constitutions power of eminent domain to take all of PG&Es real property, easements, equipment, power contracts, and employee retirement (to keep PG&E from shedding these in bankruptcy). These would be divided amoung all the CCAs and new CCAs, who would become 15 municipal utility districts, like SMUD. Many of these CCAs have loads around 10,000 GWH, which is the size of SMUD. Local utilities will do the maintenance and fire proof their system because the are responsible for their family and friends - not profit. Since most politicians are on PG&Es payroll, it will take an a State Initiative to take over PG&E.

How would this be paid for without raising taxes or sky high rates? CalPERS is trying to give $20-30B to hedge funds to lose. A second Initiative is required that CalPERS loan the purchase purchase price of PG&Es assets for 30 years and the money would be safe and stay in California!

So the only solution for Californians is: Die PG&E Die !!!!

Re: “Should We Break Up PG&E?

It's a no-brainer - should definitely be a public agency.

Re: “The Killer Inside Me

The Medical doctors said Herpes virus does not have a medical cure because the virus is capable of hiding within the human cells, it remains protected from your immune system. Herpes isnt a special virus your immune system has the tools to fight it back. But because it is able to lay dormant in protected cells, your immune system is unable to remove it from your body,But with strong reactive herbal medication is capable of getting rid of the virus gradually and totally from your body without damaging any of your cells,natural herbs kills the virus totally not just reducing the outbreak.

The city conducted a survey back in January of 2017 and planning staff was tasked with coming back to City Council with revised ordinances around Air BNB regulation. Evidently, based on the chart on the city's webpage about short term rental regulation (see below), not one thing has been done since January of 2017.
