Re: “Fatal System Error

I don't quite understand. If the health care professionals are being paid for their time and service, why are there always issues of people not receiving the care that is deserved and required. Are the patients being judged because they are low-income and therefore deemed not deserving of the proper care? How dare it be decided that a person does not deserve the best just because they happen to not be able to afford a "better" type health insurance. It's a sad day when the health care professional loses sight of why they entered this field in the first place. I would like to believe that it's was for the love of helping people. What would the other reason be? I'm sure the professionals have some legitimate complaints about business politics, but again it seems that the love of helping people should reign over it all.

Re: “West Oakland Councilmember Involved in House-Flipping Scheme

It seems that when you become a public figure, on any level, you give up the right to certain privacy's in your personal life. This information about LGM's for-profit house-flipping involvement was brought to light because she is a council member and rightfully so; the community should be concerned about what's going on. A pastor cannot preach against adultery and be an adulterer without his/her congregation feeling some type of way about it.

This is not to say that I completely disagree with her personal business choices, but more so to be understanding to those who do disagree.

This comment is based on the fact that my understanding of the non-profit organization being referred to as LGM's and not the city's. If I understand it wrong then dismiss the comment.

Re: “Who's Jacking Up Housing Prices in West Oakland?

It's not so much about race, but more so about the level of humanity. Those of you who are in agreement with the displacement of a people for selfish benefits might want to consider what your karma will be like. In one way or another you will find yourself going through the same hardship as those displaced. Eventually there will be a split of "Elite" and "Poor" and if you're not elite status financially you will be considered poor there will be no medium. So don't have such a cold heart when displacement issues are raised, try to be more understanding.

I was raised in West Oakland, I absolutely love that part of town and my dream is to own a home there, but even as the hardworking single parent that I've always been, I'm still far from that dream becoming a reality because of how high the prices of housing have soared to own or rent. Do I think that all the people who seem to be taking over West Oakland happen to have the kind of money being asked for the property, no I don't. What I do believe is that there is a privilege that exist that doesn't apply to everyone.

Make fun of this comment all you want, but truth is truth no matter how much you try to pick it apart.
