The new owners of the PD, Doug Bosco and Darius Anderson, make their money as go-betweens between the pension funds/unions who manage trillions of pension fund dollars and Wall Street investment banks and real estate developers. For their services they receive a substantial finder's fee which has caused problems for Darius.
Here are a couple of articles:
They also helped get many of the Sonoma County Supervisors elected.
Our County has the highest pension formulas and salaries in the state. This means more of our County dollars are going to pension payments and less to County services like road maintenance, assistance for those in need, parks, libraries, etc. Instead the money gets shipped off to Wall Street and into real estate investments for their clients and even their own real estate development deals.
Now maybe the unions and the power brokers are getting tired of spending millions on commercials to quash things like campaign finance reform, (Prop 32) and future pension reform propositions, or pension reform candidates which would slow down the gravy train.
So they buy a newspaper that is probably not a good investment on its own but gives them the ability to control the local politicians and the election results by controlling the main news source in Sonoma County.
Typical Rustad. I'll never forget his "cartoons" that he/they/Dutra used against Torliatt in favor of David Rabbit, the faux Democrat.
We canceled our subscriptions to the Argus Courier and Press Democrat due to their extreme pro-business, pro-Dutra bias.
Rabbit, Healy, Miller, Kearney: They're ALL faux regressive Democrats. Don't be fooled. They aren't to be trusted.
This includes Efren Carrillo, faux environmentalist, who stabbed Petalumans in the back and voted in favor of the Dutra Group, who have a history of violating our environment from the west to the east coast. Indisputable!
Here's another little graphic in the vain of "who's really a republican"... http://www.facebook.com/#!/photo.php?fbid=…
in the words of Charles Barkley "republicans are full of shit, democrats are just slightly less full of shit."
The press has been going down hill for along time. Let it go...it used to have so much more news...beef up the website..it is so hard to get through....who ever is charge of that get to work...it's not clean...it's old.
Sigh of relief, after reading the news release last night I thought the progressives had their hands in this. Thanks bohemian.
Yaaaa I love Yerdle - I love giving and getting something and sharing. The Sharing Economy is a Tsunami that is rising under our feet...generation Xers are not buying cars - they are sharing cars. This is the way to transform our consumptive culture to a collaborative culture.
As Van Jones said, “The emerging shareable economy has the potential to create a new American model—one in which everyday Americans have access to additional sources of revenue, savings, and new career opportunities.” “RebuildtheDream.org”
Jeffrey Smith and Tom Malterre, MS, CN Discuss GMOs and Gluten
One more disease caused by genetically modified food, the great imposter, that creates allergies, autism, infertility, miscarriage, prostate cancer, breast cancer, acid reflux, leaky bowel syndrome and other conditions that can be avoided.
Lets label GMOs so that people with gluten sensitivity can avoid them.
Yes on prop 37.

and watch the 10 minute remix,
or look for the full length 84 minute movie.
Roundabouts are more complicated to use. Having grown up in England and learned to drive there, I can tell you that RoundAbouts are far more effective than traffic signals for most situations but the general population HAS to know how to drive through them.
This is not something we should do on a city by city basis.
I really do not understand this nostalgia (pre-nostalgia, actually) for standard intersections controlled by traffic signals. They are far more dangerous than roundabouts. Studies show that roundabouts reduce injury accidents by 75%. Vehicle through-put is improved, too.
Do whatever it takes to see this show. You will not be disappointed!
Green tourism becomes more and more popular, but I think that it is cool to combine green travels with the spirit of adventure. Unknown exotic countries like Ukraine provide perfect opportunities for such combinations. This unexplored and “savage” country has vast rural areas without any footprints of civilization. There are several such places http://ukraine-vacation-guide.com/publ/gre… but there are much more green travel destinations in Ukraine. One more important thing is that you don’t need visa to go there.
Of course a male would have something to say. And of course it's someone who doesn't go to SSU. did you know there have been multiple sexual assualts and rapes on campus? Did you know that a male referring to a woman as a bitch, then that person being praised and paid mulitiple millions of dollars is setting the example that if you treat women like property, they will believe they are property? Your argument would be valid if the media didn't constantly degrade women. But the proof that something needs to change lies in the sheer number of girls and women with eating disorders, or women who think they need to get surgery to live up to someone else's standards. If we're playing this garbage on college campuses, a supposed safe place for students, then where do we females have to go so we're not surrounded by loud speakers, images, and even the opposite sex either blanantly or figuratively disrespecting us because of our gender?I did contact the group that played the music, and of course, I never got a response. I, for one Alex hope that you never have kids. Especially a girl because you have very little respect for women.
Rep. Paul Ryan as Romney' his vice presidential running mate. At an Atlas Society meeting celebrating Ayn Rand's life in 2005, Ryan said that "The reason I got involved in public service, by and large, if I had to credit one thinker, one person, it would be Ayn Rand", and "I grew up reading Ayn Rand and it taught me quite a bit about who I am and what my value systems are, and what my beliefs are. It’s inspired me so much that it’s required reading in my office for all my interns and my staff."
Greenspan was born and educated in New York City, where he earned a BA, MA and, 27 years later in 1977, a PhD in economics. After earning his MA in 1950, Greenspan became a 20-year associate of famed philosopher Ayn Rand, author of books "The Virtue of Selfishness,""Atlas Shrugged" and more. Greenspan wrote for Rand’s newsletters and authored a chapter for a Rand book. As legend has it, Federal Reserve chairman Alan Greenspan was once a member of Ayn Rand's 1960's salon. He was invited guest at Rand's apartment and apparently was close enough to have read her epic Atlas Shrugged as it came off her typewriter.
With his selection of Representative Paul Ryan as a running mate, Mitt Romney has told us exactly who he would be as President: a selfish capitalist. A Romney-Ryan White House would elevate selfishness above all else. To understand the values of Mr. Romney and Mr. Ryan, it is necessary to understand their intellectual forebear, Ayn Rand. Ms. Rand was one of the most extreme public intellectuals of the twentieth century. As her central creed, she rejected the idea that people in a community should approach each other with charity, compassion, and altruism.

Here's a graphic reminder of what a fraud the 'regulatory' apparatus that supposedly protects us is:
What this scientist is saying is dead serious. This is not some philosophical
There is nothing more basic than what you eat. Your body has evolved over millions of years to protect your system from foreign proteins.
Genetically modified organisms not only have the genes from other species inserted in their DNA, i.e. soil bacteria genes in plants, fish genes in plants, other plant genes in plants, but in addition, all manner of uncontrolled odd combinations and recombinations of genes that cause your body to go into defense inflammatory mode every time you eat this junk.
Result? Allergies, stomach disorders, autism, arthritis, breast and prostate cancers.
This is not even mentioning the special pesticides like Roundup that the plants are
custom modified to resist in large amounts and that leaves residue in factory food.
See this movie for a through exposee of all this. It's your health.
Genetic Roulette Movie
84 minute full length version.
Please note that yellow crookneck squash is now being genetically modified by having different species genes from bacteria and virus inserted into its DNA.
That means in addition to corn, sugar beets, soybeans and canola and all the thousands of products made from them eating this squash can laterally transfer the bioengineered genes into your stomach flora and make them continuing producing the pesticide in your stomach.
Oh well, at least the insects and worms will die in your belly. Of course your children can get allergies, autism, leaky gut syndrome and other autoimmune conditions from this. You may get prostate and breast cancer and other conditions like fatique and premature aging. It's a risky gamble with you winning nothing but supposedly pest free food and the house winning every time in the extra expenses to grow these crops and as a bonus, the money from selling the special herbicide that the plants can resist and are drenched with.
It would be nice if genetically modified foods were labeled.
Vote Yes on Prop 37 to label them.
This youtube video, the 84 minute version, will educate about this.

May the Federal Grand Jury indicted the shooters with live rounds for murder one.
They destroyed my life with falsehoods from a sick relative, and paralyzed me.
I knew too much because my father trained me. He was A. T. and F. and Explosives, and I.R.S..40 years plus...
Yeah, I have to say, I didnt like this thing flying so low over my house this past weekend.. it almost looked like it was gonna crash it was so low.. with the fire risk, Id rather them fly somewhere else.
Seems Mr. Nunberg is an a-word...
