Re: “Well-Engineered, Potent 'Dirty Bird' Cannabis Pre-Roll From 4&20 Blackbird At First Soothes — Then Puts You In A Daze

Pine and citrus tones? Please? I smoked one and I got high. That's my review. Calming at first and then in a daze? Congrats on describing every joint I've ever smoked.

Re: “Grand Jury: Oakland’s ‘Backroom Dealing’ to Sell City-Owned Land Is Systemic Problem ‘Vulnerable to Undue Influence’

Residents always lose when the City gives away our public lands which would be far more valuable if used for low income housing, recreation facilities or green areas. These deals are usually short-sighted cash grabs which are extremely profitable for developers, often only providing housing for affluent people who want to move here, regularly displacing existing residents who council members are supposed to represent. And once the land is gone, it's gone for good.

"The city has 90 days to respond to the Grand Jurys findings and recommendations."

Or what? 10 lashes with a wet noodle?

Re: “Oakland to Congress: Investigate Trump's Impeachable Offenses

Is this the same city council that was found by the Alameda grand jury to have routinely violated open meeting laws?

Pot, kettle. Kettle, pot.

And now about the community that has repeated re-elected these people, fed by stories like this.

BAH!

Re: “Grand Jury: Oakland’s ‘Backroom Dealing’ to Sell City-Owned Land Is Systemic Problem ‘Vulnerable to Undue Influence’

In the past two years the city of Oakland has spent a great deal of time and money installing something called a Public Ethics Commission.

Designed according to its chief salesman, CM Dan Kalb, to improve confidence in city hall.

'Nuff said.

Re: “Are the Golden State Warriors a Dynasty? Obviously.

. So, perhaps the more pressing dilemma is whether the teams Big Four will make the sacrifices to stick together in the coming years, as Oakland passes its legacy team off to that city on the other side of the bay.


Yes they will.

Re: “Oakland to Congress: Investigate Trump's Impeachable Offenses

I would have to say that if the City Council is serious about localizing Trump policy issues is to declare their disgust in currying favor to the NRA by his current stance of loosening rules on gun control that contribute to the senseless violence in our streets!

Re: “Oakland to Congress: Investigate Trump's Impeachable Offenses

My symbolic gesture towards CMs Kalb, Guillen and the rest: find out what is going on in Oakland's meanest streets. Think about it. Do something new to try to protect the most vulnerable among us, our children.

Re: “Oakland to Congress: Investigate Trump's Impeachable Offenses

Well, glad to see. the Oakland City Council spending time on important things, lol.

They thrive on meaningless drivel that nobody cares about.

Re: “Alameda Renter Advocates Say Landlords Engaging in ‘Disinformation Campaign’ to Repeal Just-Cause Protections

This article fails to mention that under the JCE section a tenant can sublet to anyone without owner approval and even credit checks. He can even arbitrage the rent for a profit. Also the way the language is written it is a costly endeavor for eviction by the owner that skews all the rights to the tenant. Trying to get someone out under the provisions listed means that another tenant would have to testify. Most tenants won't do that as fearing retribution. The facts about all that JCE entails is sorely lacking in the dialogue. Be fair EBE and show the full picture of what JCE really means and don't just cherry pick a word or phrase.

Re: “An Ideal Lunch Break at Emeryville's Paradita

Sorry, but are you certain Paradita offers beef heart anticuchos? We were there 6/16 and the ONLY anticuchos offered on the menu signboard were chicken, shrimp, and pork belly. We were very disappointed!

Re: “Crucial Legislation for New Oakland Police Commission Stalls in Committee as Activists and Councilmembers Fight Over Rules

If Council members believe that background checks are important, they should require checks of all candidates for elected office in Oakland.

The way it is now, the only "check" is the City Clerk checking that a candidate is registered to vote at their stated address. Candidates for City Attorney and Auditor must provide proof of current state license.

No official verification of resumes or candidate's statements.
