Re: “Measuring Food Waste

One thing to keep in mind about Grocery Outlet is that its merchandise is largely already in "sell by" limbo.

Comparing their volume of "thrown away" stuff to a normal market is like comparing the death rate at a hospice to a hospital.

Re: “Endorsements Part IV: Vote Barbara Parker, Jody London, and Sheryl Walton

Measure J will be paid for by people who pay property taxes. I'm seeing figures of $60 per 100k of property value. I own a house in Oakland but have no income; it would cost me hundreds of dollars more than the taxes that already cost me about 1/3 of my annual expenditures. I can't afford this!

I see that Jerry Brown wants me to tax myself for his measure 30. I also see he's endorsed Ignacio De La Fuente who is clearly scum. So why should I trust him on anything else?

I keep thinking I should just vote against all the taxes. There's no place for me to get the money to pay them with!

Re: “The Anti-Endorsement: Ten Reasons Why You Shouldn't Vote for Ignacio De La Fuente

Wow. Until his mailer arrived, I hadn't known anything about this guy. Outside, it's a "scare" piece talking about crime, and inside it turns into an ugly list of terrible things about Kaplan, emphatically listed as "True!"

As soon as I got to one I remembered, from a newspaper article, I realized that it was NOT true -- no, she did not say Oakland cops are pedophiles -- this was just too much sleaze for me; I decided not to vote for this guy. I mean, if he can't keep from telling obvious lies in the course of saying hello, I don't think it's going to get any better.

Thanks to this article for MORE of the ugly stuff on this guy. Yuk!

Oh, and Jerry Brown endorses him? What a shame.
