At least we have a first: using the LAT as the objective voice of conservative journalism. Even Obama's mouthpiece the NYT does not agree with your point of view.
Bush has NOTHING to do with the Patriot Act at this point. Obama had his shot to not sign the thing and instead liked the power too much to pass it up. You can't keep blaming Bush for events that our current idiot now controls.I just heard Bill Press on Bay Area radio, hardly a right wing nut, state that E. Holder should be fired yesterday for general incompetence and profoundly un American policies. It must be killing the left that Obama is indeed part of the same corporation as Bush...

14noscams-Wow! You cite one (theoretically) non lowlife former gang member as proof we should not lock up recidivist criminals? We do not label them my friend, they self label, it's just that most of us are willing to admit it.

"silly focus on Benghazi,"? You know damn well that you would have been tearing up these comments if the Bush administration had intentionally lied about why they did not protect our diplomats and then lied again to cover up the stupidity. Did you read the emails released by the White House(conveniently without the FIRST TWO DAYS)? I did and it was sickening.Wow, thanks for admitting that the IRS conveniently and intentionally targeted conservative groups before Obama's election.
You forgot to throw in our great Presidents use of the Patriot Act and wiretapping the Associated Press...
For gawdsakes start being an American first and a partisan political weenie second.

Hey iamsomeguyinsb, don't let your passion get in front of your brain. This is only a political issue in that both parties worked together to change the asset to debt ratio and how debt is written off by the big lenders. Writing fthe bad paper as derivitives was EXPRESSLY created by the politicians. For gawd sakes guy person, this is public knowledge that the politicians changed the rules and the lenders jumped right in.Yea, this started with Clinton by first encouraging and then mandating that lenders take on a percentage of unqualified borrowers, mostly minorities that had lousy credit and zero money down. Bush continued the policies to stimulate home building. Obama is still doing it and they have re-upped some of the same crap that brought the market down in the first place.

It's sorta like when Jerry Brown was mayor of Oakland. The predominantly black residents of east and west Oakland continually whined about not having enough cops. Oakland was and is broke so Jerry put a local proposition on the ballot to specifically fund hiring of new police. The neighborhoods that supposedly wanted the cops overwhelmingly voted against the proposition. To his credit Brown stood up to the activists and told them if they would not help themselves they cannot expect everyone else to take care of them.

California is an "at will" employment state so they can be let go for any reason that does not violate basic rules against discrimination.After SBB&T let that slimeball Melchiori drag them down everyone should have pulled out their money anyway. There are local banks that give great service; I use one myself for this very reason.

Yea Tabatha and it was Clinton who began destabilizing the lending market in order to give mortgages to people that did not qualify. I know you don't like that fact but it is what it is.This is an awesome idea; we'll INTENTIONALLY build ghettos so that we can begin applying in advance for tax money to rebuild the blighted areas. Genius!

I wish La Migra was at the meeting. That would have seriously cut down the number of people passionately speaking against implementing the constitutionally vetted gang injunction...Hilarious! Progressives arguing against the gang injunction based on being fiscally conservative and accountable? You support a bottomless pit of money for every thing you believe in, without any associated metrics, but now you are concerned about money?

First, using strange statistical analysis to prove or disprove the safety of a particular ramp is idiotic. There are too many independent factors to make any causal comparison for proving a high or low accident rate(curve, tree's, traffic volume, average speed etc). Second, the ad hominum attacks started from the get go in this comment string. Why is this issue so important that detractors started with personal attacks immediately?Third, while I am no fan of the country club set, CalTrans is an absolute failure and black hole for money and efficiency.Fourth, if it was not for the country club set CalTrans would have rammed a super freeway down our throats years ago. We can praise all of the "community activists" but without money and clout we would be worse off in this case.
