Re: “Congressman Eric Swalwell Puts Donor's Daughter on Payroll

Two cliches' apply here:
1st: "Tempest in a teacup."
2nd: "Meet the new boss, same as the old boss" (courtesy of Mr. Peter Townsend)
Sure, at first glance, this may look a little greasy. But anybody who wants to get their panties in a twist over this, needs to take a look at all of the "Advisory Board" positions that are getting passed around in Sacramento.
Political cronies of one stripe or another are being named to these "positions" that pay a $100k to $150k per year "stipend" perform the incredibly taxing job of...(wait for it)...showing up for one or two 4 hour meeting(s) per year in Sacramento.....maybe.
Want to report on something? Try looking into that.

Re: “When Private Patrols Pull The Trigger

How the hell did we turn into a country that endeavors to punish it's citizens for taking responsibility for defending themselves. Utterly nauseating!

Re: “Why We Oppose the Oakland Spy Center

Oakland PD cannot currently get out of it's own way, and they want to give them truly disturbing Orwellian snooping technology? I've got a far better idea: How about they spend that money on hiring some seasoned detectives that are actually capable of competently conducting a homicide investigation (and actually interested in doing so), and enough of them to seriously tackle the case-load. Turning OPD into a little mini-NSA, particularly without a major housecleaning, is money far worse than just merely wasted.
