Re: “Broken Pipes, Broken System

Oakland residence are subject to years of incompetent do nothing leadership, a sewage problem is likely the tip of the iceberg. Please hold them accountable, they shouldn't continue to operate above the law.

Re: “Town Business: Regulating Tenant Move Out Agreements, and a New Library Parcel Tax Proposed

Alphie, I don't like parcel taxes either (for a different reason than you -- because they aren't proportional to property value), but if this were a sales tax proposal, someone else out there would be saying "I'd vote for this if only it were a property tax..."

My view is that if you support what the money will be used for, you should probably support the tax even if it isn't raised in exactly the way you prefer. (Not just you specifically, everyone.) Otherwise services starve while we wait for an impossible level of agreement. And I, for one, hella support our libraries.

Measure Q
Library Parcel Tax Extension was passed and lasts until 2024 - OAKLAND WHAT ARE you doing with the money? I would say we have clearly taxation with VERY poor representation.

Re: “Town Business: Regulating Tenant Move Out Agreements, and a New Library Parcel Tax Proposed

So once again the city mismanages it's funds for these ineffective BS pet projects to their buddies and then states services like the library need additional funds. Oakland already has high property taxes and yet we STILL don't get basic reliable services from the city.

No more taxes!!

Re: “Town Business: Regulating Tenant Move Out Agreements, and a New Library Parcel Tax Proposed

I would not be in favor of a parcel tax because yet again the property owners in Oakland are being asked to subsidize the local services that are used by all residents. I would be in favor of a sales tax increase to support public libraries, that way all residents who do business in Oakland would contribute to the social services.

Re: “Old School, New Paradigm: An Exploration of Oakland Marijuana Rituals Past And Present

How you gonna forget about Harborside? Forget Richmond man, if I'm going to the hood, it's going to be Oakland and actually, I'm not going to the hood, I'm going to the nice part where I can chill by the water and blaze while staring out at the water and all of the boats docked there while local cops and sheriffs walk by on their way to Starbucks and Quiznos. Nice and safe, which is a little surprising given the bad rap Oakland gets (which is honestly pretty well deserved if you just cruise down East 14th, I mean E-one-fou' lol). Also, Ed Rosenthal is THE MAN. Everyone that's anyone knows the bible he wrote and it comes in CLUTCH anytime you run into an issue. But yeah man, how the times have changed. Good article. Keep it up.

Re: “Best Cannabis Dispensary

Real talk: Harborside is the best. Back when I lived in Cali, nothing compared. I hit up all the clubs and never found anything close to as legit as Harborside in Oakland. Huge selection, tons of security, high grade, low grade, mid grade, extracts, strains galore, and more edibles than I could ever eat. They literally have it all. And to top it off, their owners are awesome dudes. Super nice and super professional. I was literally standing in line one day while my back was acting up (back pains) and one of the owners, who is actually the dude with the ponytails you always see on TV, saw me, somehow noticed what was going on with me, and offered me a back massage. They are THE BEST. Much love for Harborside. I thought SR71 was going to be a lot better than they were, hardly a comparison to what HS has to offer. And when you're done, you can jet over to Quiznos on your way out. How cool is that? 5th and Embarcadero everyone, that's where it's at. Just watch out for the shady characters that chill across the street at that sketchy motel lol.

Re: “Friday’s Briefing: Trump to Open California Coast to Oil Drilling; Bay Area Companies Fuel Dow Jones Surge Over 25,000

Did anyone catch this argument for why it makes sense to open up our shores to more oil drilling in which one of the politicians supporting it said something along the lines of: 'the revenue will help the environment.' Which was like when they tried to say that 'killing elephants in big game hunts will help generate revenue that can be used to help conservation efforts.' How stupid do you have to be to believe that? That's like saying selling cigarettes will help improve the health of the masses because the revenue can be used to improve medical care. Seriously, do people actually believe this nonsense?

Re: “Monday’s Briefing: California May Become Sanctuary State for Weed; 40% of Bay Area Adults Need a Roommate to Afford Rent

In regards to your first point, I thought California was already like this? I remember when there was a 'rogue cop' working with the feds to help shutdown state approved dispensaries back in the day. I thought we--well, not we cause I don't live in Cali anymore but that's besides the point--already had legislation in place, perhaps not on a state level, maybe just a city level, to prevent our local law enforcement from working against the will of the California residents. I guess not? That's a surprise.

Also, about Trump watching TV and tweeting all day - WHAT IS THAT?! Does this guy not realize he's the PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES? That's a pretty big job (I'm underselling it), maybe one that he should focus on. After all, he is effectively governing ALL OF US. Apparently he thinks it's more important to get his cable television time in and send some ridiculous tweets publicly bashing anyone that criticizes him with schoolyard name-calling. Funny how his wife is trying to push some sort of anti online bullying agenda while her husband is perhaps the biggest internet bully of them all lol.

Re: “Legion of Bloom Terrapen Vaporizer Hits Smooth And Looks Slick.

Jonathan: In regards to your comment, I can't help but disagree with you about it being a lazy plug because I never heard of the Terrapen til I read this so I'm definitely glad they tossed this up on the site cause otherwise I'd be totally unaware of its existence. Although, on the lazy side, it'd be nice to have some more info on it, but I'm guessing I can probably find some more info on the manufacturer's site and probably on Reddit's vape section where people are constantly sharing their opinions of new vapes and whatnot. I suggest taking a look at Reddit if you want to know more about it cause I'm guessing you'll find some reviews from people that have bought it.

Also, the zen cartridge maybe being a way of your editors telling you to think before you write - that's pretty funny haha. Would be nice to know more about their pre-filled cartridges and what exactly is in them. Do a followup on this vape if you can!

Re: “The Year of the Vape

Not everyone has access to extracts you say but if you live in the Bay Area and you don't, something is seriously wrong with you because the Bay is flush with extracts lol, especially now that Harborside doesn't even require a med card anymore, just walk in and get you want. Anyways, forget that G Pen you mentioned, there are way better vapes for extracts, even better pen vapes. Personally, I like the Hypnos Zero by Linx and the Ghost by Dr. Dabber. What's cool about the Hypnos Zero is that it doesn't even use a coil like most of the other vape pens. Instead, it uses a ceramic plate. Super nice design but it does get a little clogged at times because of how close the plate is to the holes that the vapor travels through. I've reviewed both of them on my website at https://vaporizershark.com for anyone that cares to learn more about them. Also, the Santa Cruz Shredder grinders are bomb. Hella legit. Space Case is a good alternative. Both are expensive, but better safe than sorry cause you don't want to buy some cheap aluminum grinder that's basically a knockoff that could leave behind metal shavings, you want a hi-quality one if you're going to go with an aluminum one instead of titanium and that's exactly what the Santa Cruz and Space Case grinders are. But as a Bay cat, I gotta give up for the Santa Cruz Shredder cause you gotta support your local businesses!
