Re: “As People of Color Disappear from Oakland, So Do My Memories

I am a former East Bay resident who owned a home in Berkeley... price
$20,000 in 1972 ...price today approximately $ 762,000... enough said... even the optometrist that did a home visit at this location expressed concern about affordability... now in Denver and prices are rising there as well... lucky I was able to buy a foreclosure cash in Colorado and 90 percent of the people I have met here are from California or New York... Love California ... was born at the University of San FrNcisco and lived and worked in the Bay when it was affordable but If I were to decide to move back would be going to the areas like Palmdale to buy some land before it also gets less affordable.... but loving Colorado currently other than the winter weather... So sorry to see residents getting priced out in the Bay... Lucky I have family and kids there .. so I can visit with minor expenses... hope it does continue to build affordable housing so it can keep its diversity and culture... have family that own business there... hope they do not get priced out of their business locations.... Good luck to the Bay was saddened to see all the people sleeping under Bart and other locations last time I was on the Berkeley Marina... Good luck.

Yeh he won but the popular vote did not vote for him so we do not plan to put up with this Hitler... you get over it ... dig one ditch dig two... old saying or you reap what you sow ... sow hate and you will reap.... sow love and you will reap... some call it karma...

Re: “Oaklanders: Next Police Chief Needs to 'Clear Out Bad Apples'

Agree used to be a peace officer and the unions have undermined the authority of these top brass in these departments... In 1980 when I worked as a peace officer ... we had no union and you could be on the street tomorrow unemployed... Unions have jeopardize the safety of citizens and have caused more deep pocket suits against local cities who desperately need these funds to improve education and other services badly needed in communities. Not anti - union but in this instance as it pertains to public safety.... Yes.

Re: “Congresswoman Barbara Lee on President Trump: 'The Fight is Coming'

No weapon formed against us shall or will prosper... Like we used to say when I was a kid dig one ditch better dig two. Gird up and put on the armor....No weapon....United States and the United Nations will come to a head just like Hitler did if America stays on this path ... the world is watching along with those in America who stand for liberty and justice...
