Canada Being Assimilated Into a U.S. Dominated North American Security Perimeter - by Dana Gabriel
The perimeter security deal is being sold as vital to improving the flow of trade and travel across the border. In order to appease U.S. fears, Canada has made numerous concessions with no guarantees that it will lessen border restrictions. As part of a North American security perimeter, Canada will always be at the mercy of any new U.S. security measures, regardless of the dangers they may pose to privacy and civil liberties.

Why Would They Do That Exactly? - by Sudhama Ranganathan
There are as many unique and varied political views, as there are people themselves. No matter how deep the divide there is almost some issue most people can find some agreement on. No matter how alike in philosophy or perspective, there is usually at least one issue people might not see exactly eye to eye on. Differences between sincere public servants are good, especially when it comes to legislating, because that means it will bring together different views on a wide range of issues, he...

Can you imagine naming Bay Bridge after Election Frauder, Murderer? - by Register Peace & Freedom or Green
It is not enough that the eastern span has taken 24 years and counting to replace, and it is filled with deadly bolts that must be replaced. Now, the California Legislature is proposing to name the western span after the worst mayor in San Francisco and a proud pro-landlord, pro-gambling assemblyperson, Democrat Willie Brown, whose last fling in San Francisco was to perpetrate election fraud in every election from 1995 and every election thereafter, including the 49er Stadium Swindle election...

A Year Later, Youth Programs Still Waiting on City Bicycles - by The Bike Church
Since 1996 the City has distributed unclaimed bicycles to youth in need through nonprofits like the Bike Church and Barrios Unidos. Early last year they abrubptly ended this program and have given bikes instead to a for-profit business called the Bike Dojo, which should not even be allowed under City code to participate in the program, and which has sold many of the bicycles, also in violation of the Municipal Code. Despite admitting these problems, the City continues to distribute bikes to t...

Mayor Cuts Off Comment in Consent Agenda Crackdown; Brown Act Complaint Rejected - by Robert Norse
At Tuesday's afternoon City Council meeting (5-28), Mayor Bryant adopted a new repressive procedure which seemed to be made up on the spot to silence me as I opposed the Council's unanimous move to cut the number of Commission for the Prevention of Violence Against Women meetings in half. The cutback was bad enough by itself, but along the way, Bryant's new procedures if followed in the future gag speakers by setting new rules for public comment on Consent Agenda items

10 Theses about the Crisis: Ingo Schulze - by Ingo Schulze
German novelist Ingo Schulze's 2012 "Our Beautiful New Clothes" explains how we have accepted the form and not the substance of democracy. People were convinced of the "emperor's new clothes" until a child cried "but he has nothing on." Maybe Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale can help us understand our predicament. It is the madness that has become self-evident: for years, the public sphere has been plundered and democracy ruined. The German writer Ingo Schulze has had enough.

Health and Safety Gaps in Safe Drinking and Clean Water Acts - by by Patrick Porgans and Lloyd G. Carter
Since 1978 the State has received on average $600 million to $800 million annually for clean water programs that are administered by the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) through the Clean Water State Revolving Fund. EPA officials estimate California needs $39 billion in capital improvements through 2026 for water systems to continue providing safe drinking water to the public. Instead, Gov. Brown is pushing a $14 billion twin tunnel project to ship relatively clean S...
