Tents appeared at Occupy Cal Thursday

 

The tents were still there on Friday morning

Does the ban on tents at Frank Ogawa Plaza also apply to mini-tents?

As the first full week in February ends, the overwhelming temptation for political pundits is to compare the chaotic process of getting the Republican primary elections voters to choose the man who is ultimately going to get the nomination to Bach's Little Harmonic Labyrinth, and so the World's Laziest Journalist will skip that because it is too obvious.   The executives for the Democratic Party know who their nominee will be just as surely as Karl Rove knows who his party will select.

Isn't it obvious to non pundits that Romney is a Potemkin candidate?   For most Republicans the situation is like when they learn beforehand that they will be honored via a surprise party and that they will have to act surprised when it happens right on schedule.

The paid pundits in the mainstream media know this but their weekly ("Yeah, I get paid weakly -- very weakly") paycheck is whatcha might call "hush money."   When the inevitable happens watch and see just how authentic the surprise is on the faces of TV's regulars on the weekend analysis shows.   It's like they say in Hollyweird:   "If you can fake sincerity, you have it made in Hollywood."

Didn't Republicans fight hard to get ranked choice voting established and now aren't they using the Liberals' arguments against the change to discredit Romney who isn't getting much more than about 50 percent of the voters in any one primary?

Speaking of Republican inconsistencies; what about the possibility of sending Americans into Syria to help them win freedom and democracy?   Is it an oxymoron when Republicans staunchly endorse sending American youth to die in a war to establish a democracy overseas?   Shouldn't they want to establish a Republic and not a Democracy?

The Oakland city council at their regular Tuesday night meeting voted down a measure to order the Police to use more stringent measures when dealing with the Occupy protesters.  

Some cynics question spending money for keeping people out of a public park or plaza or from seizing a vacant building on a weekend when five murders are committed in other areas of Oakland.   Isn't the answer that there is always going to be gang violence but cleaning up the downtown shopping area makes business associations happy?

Periodically at Frank Ogawa Plaza tiny teepees will appear.   Apparently they are meant to be a gesture of defiance regarding the ban on the use of tents in that area in front of the Oakland City Hall.

This week the Guardian weekly newspaper in San Francisco ran an article, on page nine of the February 8 to 14, 2012 edition, written b Shawn Gaynor, about new legislation which is designed to prevent the San Francisco Police Department from working with the FBI to investigate local citizens.  

Isn't it one thing for the police to tell a fearful wife that they can't do much about a husband's threats until he actually does something unlawful, and another thing for a country that might send troops to Syria to investigate the possibility of future reprisals inside the USA?

BP graduated from college in the mid sixties (at the bottom of the class?) He told his draft board that Vietnam could be won without his participation. He is still appologizing for that mistake. He received his fist photo lesson from a future (more...)
