text BART Creates a New Way to Become a Criminal. The Vicious Crime of Seat Hogging. by JP Massar
In April, the BART Board passed a law making it illegal to occupy two seats during rush hour on a BART train. The law was not to take effect until the BART police presented their implementation strategy. At the most recent BART Board meeting the BART police presented how they intend to enforce the new law.

Joel Keller, who introduced the "seat hog" ordinance, is upset by seeing people sleeping on trains. “We at some point need to get serious about whether BART is a homeless shelter or provides transportation,” Joel Keller said. This quote is specifically related to the new seat hog interrogations and penalties. He'd like to add even more.

Politicians are using stereotypes and myths to make it harder to buy a cell phone. Laws based on racist beliefs only serve to reinforce racism and discrimination. Harsh voter ID requirements harm Black communities. Tell Representative Speier to retract her bill.

image Correcting the misconceptions of the anti-Trump crowd (Comment On: Trump Crosses The Border: Youth & Workers Speak Out In California) by Dump Trump & Clinton
Donald Trump's paternal grandparents were German immigrants in 1885. His mother was a Scottish immigrant around 1930. They did not come on the Mayflower, as one speaker in this video claimed. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Donald_Trump Trump is most likely to win the California Republican primary. See http://www.270towin.com/2016-republican-nomination/california-primary Keep in mind Trump already has won the New York and Pennsylvania Republican primary, 2 large Northern states. He is most likely to win Indiana, a state as big as Massachusetts which Trump won. See http://www.nytimes.com/elections/results/massachusetts As you can see on the national map, Trump is winning the usual Republican states in the Republican primary, plus some that usually vote Democrat in November. See http://www.nytimes.com/elections/2016/national-results-map The majority of voters are over age 45. See http://www.post-gazette.com/news/nation/2011/05/04/U-S-voting-majority-now-age-45-and-up/stories/201105040247 The median age of Americans is 37. See World Almanac 2016, p. 610. In 2008, Democrat won with 52% of the vote; McCain received 45% of the vote. See http://www.fec.gov/pubrec/fe2008/tables2008.pdf In 2012, Democrat Obama won with 51% of the vote; Romney received 47% of the vote. http://www.usnews.com/opinion/blogs/robert-schlesinger/2013/01/04/the-final-2012-presidential-election-results-arent-close Assuming Clinton is the Democrats’ candidate in 2016 and Trump is the Republican candidate, Clinton will have to fight an uphill battle to win because the presidential race in a large country like the USA is a referendum on the economy, which is again in big trouble. The Gross Domestic Product slowed to .5% of annual growth in the First Quarter of 2016. It had been higher in the previous 3 quarters. Clinton will have to hope there is no recession before election day. Otherwise, Trump wins. The name of the game is always money. See http://www.liberationnews.org/faced-sputtering-economy-u-s-steps-war-drive/ The older generation has long ago passed the torch to the young. The young must do labor organizing if they want any serious change in this country. Elections do not create change; they reflect the class struggle that has preceded them, if any.
