Re: “Oakland City Council Should Censure Desley Brooks

The writer says "The last straw." Apparently not. Brooks is an "elected" official. Just un-elect her. Problem solved.

Re: “Wednesday’s Briefing: Uber Sells Oakland Uptown Building for $180M; Alameda Tables Plan for 589-Unit Housing Project

I always bought my Levis at that Sears. BART from work in The City to 19th Street Oakland. Pop in Sears and buy clothing, Tennis shoes, cookware, linens, electronics etc, then the #18 AC Transit bus home (formally #15 bus). I hate that it's no longer there.

Re: “Where to Buy Legal Weed in the East Bay on Jan. 1

They should empty the prisons of all the Black men and boys found guilty of selling weed. Probably can't get a job at these shops though.

Re: “Laney Students and Staff Express Concerns About the A’s Ballpark Plans

Mauricio, I think with the top-quality education you're getting from Laney, you can do better than a low-paying stadium/arena job.

Re: “Big Soda Is Spending Big Money Against Oakland Sugary Beverage Tax Proposal

Brian E. Williams.

Why shouldn't they help themselves to a cut of what you pay for anything that's not healthy for you? Because it isn't their money that's why. They didn't earn it. Soda isn't unhealthy. Too much soda is. Too much of anything is. Maybe charge a soda tax to the individuals that get sick from drinking soda and then using public facilities.

Chris Darling, citing some obscure Canadian study doesn't justify you ripping off my money for something that does me no harm. When people want a soda, they're not going to say "The tax is keeping me from buying it." Now they'll buy it with your hand in their pocket over you pretending like you care about their health when all you want is their money because you got other stuff you want to pay for and you're desperate for new revenue.

Re: “Big Soda Is Spending Big Money Against Oakland Sugary Beverage Tax Proposal

Taxes on soda, snacks or candy is just a way to tax poor people. Their not going eat any less of it. They'll just pay more. They already pay more whenever the price goes up. So now government gets a cut. Calling them "Big Soda" is designed to vilify these companies for doing legal business. Soon I can see taxes on all food for our own good for some future reason.
