Nah, spacey, people are just tired of the fear mongering and BS.
Look at oil prices, dropping, and if you are into technical analysis they are about to drop like a rock. What happened to peak oil? Wasn't production supposed to start slowing and prices were going to keep going up? People are realizing peak oil is a myth and oil is actually a renewable resource - it doesn't come from dinosaur bones and swamp gas, it comes from melting rocks and carbon deposits in the earth's core:
The oil companies don't want you to know this because then the myth is exposed and they can't keep charging such high prices once it is understood that oil is widely available and not going away any time soon.
Then there is the myth of man made global warming caused by CO2 - 19+ years of no global warming, and I was told that the reason was because the deep oceans were sucking up that heat. Recently NASA scientists had to admit that the deep ocean temperatures have remained relatively constant and so that theory is out the window too. According to climate change models, we should be seeing exponential warming based on our CO2 output, yet as I said we have had relatively constant temperatures for 19+ years.
So what you have to realize is that the oil companies and the Kochs may be funding some research into exposing the myth of global warming, but the only reason they are doing that is to ensure that people don't find out that they have a much bigger role propping up the establishment that is promoting man made global warming and bunk peak oil theories that keep their business thriving.
In other words, they tricked you with reverse psychology, you've played right into the oil company's hands.
On Measure P Damaging

"No major incidents in the last few years" was a quote paraphrased from the article itself, are you insulting the author blah?
Look at all those people in the picture - they are having the time of their lives. Probably more fun than the people who complain about them have had in years. Sure a few bad things happen, police arrest people mostly for no reason, but you can't restrict other people's choices in a free society. Most people are peaceable and if it wasn't fun for them they wouldn't be there. If they weren't willing to take the minute risk that something bad might happen to them they wouldn't be there.
The deltopia riot was an over-reaction caused by the police. They had to create some magnificent story that never materialized with the evidence, and never justified starting a riot even if it did.

blah, I have no interest in spending another dime on this tyrannical approach, why don't you donate an extra $500k out of your pocket and they can waste an entire million dollars to further encourage the destruction of the first amendment, the right to peaceably assemble.
As was said, no major incidents in the last few years - sounds like a peaceably assembly to me. if there is an incident it will likely be due to the heavy hand of law enforcement.
I also think they should remove the 24 hr noise ordinance that will no doubt be in place on Thurs/Fri/Sat/Sun which was not mentioned in the article, but will ensure that some people will get bored of wandering the streets eventually encouraging havoc to ensue.

On Capps Trouncing Mitchum in Campaign Dollars

I wonder how Lois Capps feels about mandatory national service?
National Service is Anti-Liberty and Un-American
October 21, 2014
What do you think, Herschel, are you pro-slavery?

"Mitchum is a trust baby and not a very bright one."
I would vote for a mentally challenged baby to replace Lois Capps.

Now that Capps has been reamed on her foreign policy, let's focus on Obamacare for a minute.
Many people were happy when they first joined ObamaCare because their premiums went down a little bit. And many were unhappy that their rates went up. It won't be long until everyone is unhappy due to higher costs and reduced benefits. Nothing surprising here.
"Premiums for the cheapest of ObamaCare's pricey health plans are going to jump by 14 percentBy Jason Pye - October 22, 2014
In Seattle, the cost of the cheapest bronze plan, after subsidies, will soar 64%, from $60 to $98 per month, for individuals at this income level."
I just love the title of that website. Freedomworks. Freedom works. If you want health care prices to go down, reduce the cost by creating a vibrant marketplace with unlimited options - not a government run/subsidized market that will lead to higher prices for everybody and a reduction in the amount of care available. Ever since the 70s when the government got involved in health care, rates have soared and profits have been sucked up by the medical industrial complex and insurance companies - leaving patients and doctors and quality of care in the dust.
Beyond just allowing people to choose what care they can get, as approved by the AMA or some such garbage, we need a truly free marketplace for health care where people can actually choose from whatever type of care they desire. The internet is a great tool that can be used as a database of information for people to choose the type of care they want - we have the ability to rate care providers who may also be rated by private health agencies and it will allow the best types of care which are most affordable to come out on top. Instead everybody is told by their insurance company who their doctor is and what type of care is given for certain treatments. There are very little options out there, thus no competition and that is why prices are so high in the health care industry. It's very simple, anybody with a basic understanding of how competition brings down prices by freeing up consumer choice can understand this. Fascists who want a group of scientists funded by the medical industrial complex to tell everybody what care they should have are the ones driving prices through the roof. If their care is so good, then let it come out on top in the marketplace.

War mongering is an important topic - people like Capps, Herschel and DavyBrown who promote US Exceptionalism and other warmongering propaganda behind a facade of progressivism leads directly to massive amounts of death and suffering of innocent people. Besides all of the innocent people overseas, it affects our own society immensely.
A lot of soldiers died in Vietnam and there were massive protests around the country to help stop that war. Now we have found that more Vietnam soldiers have committed suicide than were killed in the war:http://www.lewrockwell.com/lrc-blog/m...
And we still have soldiers around the globe in these horrendous conditions and if it were up to DavyBrown and Herschel there would be even more because they believe the fake propaganda fed to them on the television about our "enemies", enemies who we help to create so that the military industrial complex, global oil cartels and banks can continue to profit.
This kind of death and destruction needs to end, we need to stop pretending that the same people who go around arming the entire world and creating death and destruction everywhere in their wakes are going to help stop death and destruction using more weapons.

I haven't posted any theories in this particular thread, only documented facts. Though I don't expect you to have any idea what the content of my posts are since you obviously don't even read most of them.
Nonetheless, keep posting, keep bullying and making non-arguments, it will only draw more intelligent people onto my side.
Posted on October 22 at 2:52 p.m.
I'm glad people like Herschel post so that thoughtful readers can see what truly lame non-arguments, bullying and name calling those who defend the establishment tend to use versus those of us who are thoughtfully writing about topics themselves.
