Re: “Debriefer: November 16, 2016

Glad to see the activities of the Water Protectors at Standing Rock are still being covered. Though Trump will put an end to it, the awakening and solidarity of all the tribes will live on. The first blizzard has hit the Great Plains, so watch for updates regarding the literal survival of those still encamped there.

Re: “2016 Voter Guide

J-NO
K-YES
L-NO!
M-NO
N-YES, this reforms the old Measure O, which had a "baseline" public safety spending level, which cannibalized other departments like parks and roads to divert excessive funds for police.
O-NO!, the general sales tax this would replace was supposed to be temporary, for the recession period only. Too much "public safety" greed.
Y-NO

Re: “Fish Rap

Salmon aquaculture may be banned in California waters, but it is not banned in federal waters just 3 miles off the coast. This may be a 'non-issue' today, but offshore net pen aquaculture is currently being considered in the Gulf of Mexico and Hawaii. This issue may come up in the EEZ off the coast of California far sooner than you, or the public, may believe.

Re: “New Rules

Some serious pot farming is now going on in Rural Residential zoned properties. Rural Residential can be 1, 2, up to 3 acres, often with just a small old rental house. Properties are being leased at a premium to "farmers," much more than the rent on a small old house.

I'm getting skunked-out by the smell.

You should also note that outdoor pot farms over 2,000 square feet are supposed to be required to get a State Water Board permit which concerns runoff, and other water quality concerns. The lazy ****'s do not seem to be enforcing the requirement at this point.

Re: “Fifth Dimensions

They both STINK. Evans backing by the SEIU, public employee union buying influence and endorsement by the likes of Michael Allen. And Hopkins endorsed by Eric Koenshoffer (or however it's spelled) and Mike Martini, and backed by the Sonoma County Alliance. All these things are disqualifying. Sonoma County alliance backed candidates to date have always voted in lock-step. I am disgusted and will vote for neither.

Re: “Fifth Dimensions

Very unfortunate mistake in the first word of the fourth-to-last paragraph. The sentence currently reads "Evans recently released a video where she rattles off the "bullshit" charges coming from Evans in a field dotted with cow plop."
The first word should be "Hopkins," the maker of that cow-plop filled video. A correction would be good.

Re: “Fifth Dimensions

More and more people are beginning to realize that Defined Benefit plans like public pensions are not sustainable, including the private sector which has more or less done away with them. Here is my solution to this looming crisis that is only going to get worse without any correction of course:

Re: “BoBnB, Anyone?

I have been thinking for quite a while how I could offer affordable housing on my property. I would be willing to expand an existing building to a studio or one bedroom. But I am concerned about the county examining my property - especially the septic (although I believe my septic is very good). Also, I understand if the county were to approve a plan, the "affordable home", it would be permanently deeded as such.
Don't know if my information is correct.

Re: “BoBnB, Anyone?

Fantastic idea. What's more, there's no lack of equilibrium in "ethical real estate". It's just community focused rather than individual rights focused. I am not sure about focusing on one person's inalienable rights as something that has been working, because it has led to confirmation bias, selective perception, entitlement, and an insular lack of empathy. I think the future will see more of this equitable community focused capitalism, with more profit sharing and checks and balances on those who choose to be so self-centered they alter the character of everyone else's town.

Re: “Death Penalty Duel

It is unfortunate that people see the Death Penalty as some type of justice or closure for the victims families. There are not enough words in any language that can begin to describe the pain of losing someone and the lingering pain itself becomes a fixture that can't be replaced. I know what those families feel as I have lost my brother. He and I were very close so it hit me the hardest, despite him being my mother's first born and the only son she bore. After my brother was brutally murdered, I wanted each and every person who took part in his death slowly tortured begging for death, but as the years passed the hurt still remained in the deepest innermost part of my heart, and yet my brother was still gone never to return. Giving these guys a death sentence won't ease my pain, or make me feel better and it definitely won't bring my brother back. A life for a Life isn't justice by any means, but life in prison without parole is a starting point. Prison isn't a luxury that some people make it out to be. The prisoners don't get three meals a day, they don't get to shower everyday and medical attention is a joke at best. They may have tvs, radios, etc. but what good are they, being locked up in an over crowded hot/cold (depending on the weather outside), disease/rat infested cage? For all those who oppose the death penalty reform, they should experience San Quentin's Death Row for an entire month as an inmate and see if justice would be better served by Death. Of course everyone has an opinion, but opinions tend to shift quickly when the Murderer is now part of their family and they don't want to see death imposed on them. Hypocrisy at best when the tables turn, but who am I to judge. #YesOn62 #TheJusticeThatWorksAct #NOon66 There's NO Justice in Murder no matter how you paint the picture.

Re: “Eyes Wide Open

RE: Eyes Wide Open August 10-16, 2016

I greatly appreciate your insightful piece about law enforcement's continuous efforts to withhold critically important video evidence from public scrutiny.
However, I would like to address an oft-repeated misunderstanding that seriously muddies the question. You write: "The ongoing debate over public access to police body- and dash-cam videos can be viewed through the lens that sees a national tug-of-war over whether black lives or blue lives MATTER MORE." [emphasis mine]
I don't qualify for membership in Black Lives Matter but I do belong to a number of allied groups and according to published BLM information that I have seen, that movement has never suggested "that your lives matter any less" but rather that "BLACK LIVES MATTER JUST AS MUCH." [emphasis mine]
Another slogan that has recently taken traction among some allies is, "How can All Lives Matter when Black and Brown lives don't?"
This essential point is frequently missed by those blinded by white privilege but it's easily understood when the will to do so is there.
