Wow, look at the right wing steaming in here. Missing the point too. The problem is there aren't anyRead More liberal politicians, they are all right wing fundamentalist no holds barred send the jobs to China conservatives. Conservative used to mean careful and forward thinking, now it means asset stripping and any way to make a buck is fine so long as nobody else makes anything. What a sad state of affairs when nobody thinks anyone else is worthy of support. Funny thing is these so called conservatives are usually the poor people, misled and rabid supporters of their abusers.

How this turned into a gay agenda conversation I have no idea, but I will give my 2 cents since itRead More seems people are missing a bit of perspective. It is a civil rights issue. Our constitution is supposed to protect the rights of all people, including minorities. If you substituted the word gay for black in any of your posts, how would it sound? Don't tell me it is any different because it is not at all. We are talking about the equal rights of a minority group, all people in our society should be free from oppressive restrictions imposed by authority on one's way of life, behavior, or political views. Were African Americans being intolerant when they "whined" that they were not allowed to do many things, including interracial marriage? It is no different, it is people's rights in this free country. People are allowed to have their views, but if they conflict with the basic core that our country was founded on, freedom and liberty for ALL, then yes, that person should be labeled as intolerant of others civil rights. I hope you can understand that it is on a completely different level than calling a politician a name. It is not a liberal, gay agenda, it is an American one and I will stand up for any group that is being oppressed in our country based on race or in this case sexual orientation.

Can you tell me how in the world Mr. Yee's agreeing to smuggle in rocket launchers in for money wasRead More him doing something for free? Nothing like agreeing to help his buddies in the Phillipines raise money for their rebel army.

yes but what is she doing now ? did she finish her rehab that she was doing ?
Nadja Adolf March 29, 2014 at 04:51 am
I don't think she was doing rehab, unless you call running for the district 10 senate seat a form ofRead More rehab. Meanwhile, with Yee out of the Secretary of State race, we could wind up with Alex Padilla. Padilla, of course, had a lobbyist illegally throw him a fundraiser and has refused to return the ill-gotten contributions. Padilla’s biggest claim to fame, however, is that he wants to pass a law allowing for the warrantless use of drones by law enforcement.

If no wood fire ban was enforced the air quality would be vastly improved on my street. We liveRead More with one house that burns morning and evening despite spare the air alerts. I do feel my health is being impacted.
Lisbeth Allen January 20, 2014 at 09:49 am
Mary Ellen, I really feel for you that you haven't been able to resolve the constant wood burning.Read More What the heck is the purpose of spare the air alerts, fines, commissions and regulations?
Cynthia January 20, 2014 at 07:21 pm
All it takes is one house to burn firewood when the air simply isn't moving ... Mary Ellen, perhapsRead More you could try calling the number to report them since it's making an impact on air quality in your neighborhood.
