Re: “Not Ready

From the beginning the "I hate Obama" faction had one problem. There was a black man in the White House.

Re: “Not Ready

Louis, you have overlooked Bernie Sanders -- he is not owned by special interests but, unlike Donald Trump, is not using duplicitous and manipulative "art of the deal" techniques on the American people every time he speaks. Bernie is what you say you want and he has 30 years of being a public servant who works tirelessly for all Americans -- those on both the Right and Left. Bernie is also unique in being a true gentleman, never stooping to power broking, dividing racial groups from each other or running a negative campaign that insults other candidates.

Re: “Punk-Rock Memories

This show was a blast - thanks to everyone involved. The photo shown above was taken at a party where Tower of Swine (TOS) played far too many years ago. This year's Nostalgia Festival was the first time TOS played together in more than 30 years. Here is a link to a video of that performance.

Re: “Not Ready

Donald Trump is the only candidate in either party who is not owned by the special interests of the left and of the right. He represents America's silent majority of decent men and women.

Maybe its time for the Sonoma County Board of Supervisors to reduce the Sheriff's Dept budget for cannabis "enforcement" actions.

Re: “Report from Paris

"When a hurricane wipes out a shantytown, and the science points to the cause being extravagant lifestyles of the global North, we should not be surprised if it results in cycles of terrorism and right-wing reactionary backlash."

There it is. The dumbest damn thing I've ever read. You obviously know nothing about terrorism or hurricanes. "Extravagant lifestyles of the global North" causes hurricanes? What does that even mean?

The Northern Hemisphere is where hurricanes occur, genius. Atlantic hurricanes generally form off the west coast of Africa and travel west. When's the last time a hurricane hit Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan or Paris? The only "shantytowns" even in the path of a hurricane are in the Caribbean and, the last time I checked, the Haitians weren't blowing up theaters and the Jamaicans weren't shooting up cafes.

Once again, someone who believes himself to be some sort of expert has no clue about reality. Please educate yourself before writing any more of this tripe.

Re: “Report from Paris

"When a hurricane wipes out a shantytown, and the science points to the cause being extravagant lifestyles of the global North, we should not be surprised if it results in cycles of terrorism and right-wing reactionary backlash. Let's head that off, and work together toward a peaceful, just and climate-protected world."

This is easily the stupidest thing I've read all month. Even IF I accepted the premise that global warming was a root cause of terrorism, which is preposterous on its very face, last time I checked it isn't Haitians and Jamaicans that are exporting terrorism, and no hurricanes are leveling shantytowns in North Africa and the Middle East. Were I the Bohemian's editor, I wouldn't even have considered this for publication.

Re: “Sean Parker Goes to Pot: Billionaire all in for Legal Bud in 2016

This initiative is DOA so long as it continues the ability of locals to ban even tiny outdoor grows. The cops will still be up our butts with this turkey, and Sean will laugh all the way to the bank since we'll have to flock to his stores to buy smoke.

Re: “Dying Wishes

I am a victim of mayhem, torture, attempted murder. Upon 10/04/2011@ Chanate Rd. Santa Rosa, Ca.
I am paralyzed for life.
Kaiser of Santa Rosa, Ca. refuses to "take me out."
I am unable to stop suffering from pain and loss of moving my arms from Judge Brad DeMeo's "hit" for the "as promised" added to the Oakmont located, Clyde and Helen Greco Family Trust.
Billionaires' Clyde and Helen Greco left a substantial "paper trail" while their daughter Caren Greco defrauded me of retirement savings over $400,00. This was from offshore injuries at the New Guerneville Bridge of 10/03/1996.
Beginning back in the early mid-1970's; the Greco's and DeMeo defrauded the Sonoma County taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars thru fraud. The Christian Life Center (Wells Fargo Center) was defaulted in loan of their million dollars from the Clyde and Helen Greco Trust Fund and Cle-Len Mgt. Inc..
They followed "Italy practices" of only recording real estate at one half value as often as available. They are all criminals in attempted murder.

Re: “Dying Wishes

No, it's not about "having choices," although that is what "Compassion and Choices" (formerly The Hemlock Society) wants you to believe. It is about (1) relieving insurers from the cost of your care when you get sick; and (2) immunizing doctors who play along from prosecution, both for murder as well as the making of a false record.

The "protections" this law provides against undue influence over a vulnerable person are wholly illusory. I happen to be Brittany Maynard's aunt, Alison Maynard. I have requested all records required by Oregon law to be created in connection with her suicide, including her written request for the drug; attestation of competency; and diagnosis that the patient has less than six months to live by two doctors, and been denied all of them, on grounds of "privacy." Thus, not even a close relative such as an aunt can obtain assurance the law was followed.

Of course, the lack of these records has led me to another conclusion: that Brittany's "suicide" is a hoax. She is, in fact, a prankster, and there is abundant other evidence, including that the woman holding the framed photo in the picture above is not Brittany, but some model; that it is not legal, under Oregon's law, to obtain the initial terminal diagnosis in another state, then move to Oregon to get the drug; that there is a CURE for the Glioblastoma multiforme tumor, as "60 Minutes" showcased in its March 27th, 2015, edition; that Brittany's uncle is in military intelligence; that the Maynards--my side of the family--were not notified of her marriage, cancer diagnosis, or plan to kill herself, learning about it all from the mass media along with the rest of the world; that there was no funeral; and more. My blog post setting forth my findings is at:

The article above makes new points about physician-assisted suicide--and is a good one. For the most part, there has simply been hype planted all over the country by C&C, which is funded by George Soros, framing assisted suicide as a "health care option" and a "civil rights measure." It is neither. Brittany's "suicide" was simply the latest in a series of tragedies being staged in this country--with the mass media's full collusion--to advance public policy.

Re: “Dying Wishes

In 1997, Oregon was the first state to pass a “Death with Dignity” Law. It’s a good law, but over 17 years (1998-2014) only 859 people in Oregon took the lethal medication. In fact, 35% of the people who filled the prescription decided not to take the lethal medication.

I’m glad the law is there. It’s an option I might use depending upon my diagnosis. But I’m not going to limit my family's choices and make that our only option.

If I have a stroke the paralysis could require me to need assistance 24/7. Even though I’d be physically handicapped, I could still enjoy the company of my children and grandchildren.

I’ve been a full-time caregiver for a stroke victim. Although it was a very rewarding experience, it was a burden I will not place on anyone in my family.

That’s why my wife and I own LTC insurance. If I become disabled my wife will not have to deplete our savings in order to pay for someone to care for me; nor will she have to risk her own health by trying to get me in and out of the tub and on and off the toilet. We’ll hire the home health aides and send the bill to the insurance company. The emotional burden on her will be hard enough. I don’t want to add the financial uncertainty on top of that.

It’s all about having choices and maximizing our options.
