Pini: SB's own Teflon Don. Does he have something on city officials? Are they in cahoots? I can't imagine any other reasons for Pini's lax treatment over the years.

I want as many people as possible to take the bus so that there is less traffic for me. I also want the city to stop building poor housing everywhere. SB's already ghetto enough.

How about this idea? If you can't afford to live in SB, then live (and work) somewhere else until you can.

Advocating that a particular group should be denied equal rights is hate speech. It just doesn't seem like it is, since the media society have, up until yesterday, made it OK to characterized this issue as a matter of opinion that is open to debate, just as it was OK to have the opinion that blacks should not be allowed to live in my neighborhood or marry or date white people when I was a kid. It's not OK with me, and I plan on calling out bigots anywhere who engage in this completely unacceptable behavior.

I also support freedom of speech, and I don't deny Zebu's right to engage in hate speech (which is what it is), but, as such, it violates the Indie's guidelines, and should be removed. Hate speech against gays is not acceptable anymore, and just because it's someone's personal opinion doesn't make it any more acceptable. Saying "kill all (whatever)" is hate speech, just the same as saying marriage equality is wrong; although, the former is an actual threat, and I would be calling the cops if someone posted it. It's time for civilized Americans to call these bigots out, and let them know in no uncertain terms that this is not OK.

Speaking against marriage equality for gays is no different from saying blacks should not be allowed to marry whites. It is hate speech. When people start giving their "opinion" about how they are against marriage equality, call them on it. Different views should be tolerated in a democracy, but never hate speech, and The Independent should not tolerate it either. Zebu's posts constitute hate speech. As such, they violate the Indie's policies, and should be removed immediately.

Maybe I wouldn't need such a high hedge if the city's streets weren't overrun with gang members, drug addicts, and insane people.
