So if someone speaks Korean and no English, how does the voter know where they can go to vote andRead More have someone who speaks Korean? Sounds like an impossible nightmare and efforts to hire bi's seems a waste because they cannot place them at every polling place. Another government blunder.

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.

just look at the tax dollars that could come in . it would save money by letting the doctors let theRead More folks that need it get it . after all how many of those smart asses that say yes or no on this really know what this stuff does for the ones that need it ? how many of those dumb folks have a medical degree ? it would be better than putting everyone in jail
Desert Rat April 11, 2014 at 07:56 pm
Yes, it would be horrible to put the Russian mob and Mexican cartel people in jail that areRead More bankrolling the pot clinics wouldn't it? Legalize it, but do it right. The current situation is a joke.
CBS News caught images of Yee being escorted into a federal courthouse on March 26, 2014 following his arrest on corruption charges.

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.

PLEASANTON, CA: New traffic signal on Foothill Road at I-580 interchange. Northbound light shown in photo.

We didn't need this light. It just creates more traffic and was unnecessary.

Maybe the engineer will be fired. Oh I forgot he works for the government.

I agree that the problem of people driving all the way over to the left needed to be corrected. But,Read More this solution isn't working well for the traffic congestion issues. I never saw hard concrete k-rail blockage on that right lane which I believe would have solved the problem. They simply needed to force traffic to not be able to get into the left lane after exiting the freeway. Physical barriers work. Now, it's just another light delaying traffic, extending my commute time, and the current exit off the freeway eastbound is like a roller coaster ride. They should have at least done the physical barrier thing until the construction was over. Thumbs down to this solution.

How refreshing to have a Congressman who not only lives in the district and visits often but isRead More willing to interact with his constituents. I may not agree with him on every issue (I don't), but I fully appreciate the importance of someone who actually tries to represent his people.
