Thankfully the adult in the room takes action

Uploaded: Jun 2, 2020


It baffles me to watch looters and vandals tear up businesses in the Bay Area and elsewhere this weekend and see the weak leadership from local mayors.

Oakland Mayor Libby Schaff still hasn’t established a curfew despite the carnage to downtown businesses. It took San Jose Mayor Sam Licardo until Sunday to establish a curfew and try to regain control of his downtown streets.

Fortunately, there is an adult in the room—Alameda County Sheriff Greg Ahern who established a county-wide curfew Monday that will run through this week.

Ahern’s decisive step followed an equally important one in San Francisco after looters started attacking Union Square and Market Street retail businesses Saturday night. Mayor London Breed immediately set a curfew and asked Gov. Gavin Newsom to put the state National Guard on standby. The guard already had been dispatched to Los Angeles after Mayor Eric Garcetti asked for help.

What’s stopping these mayors from taking the necessary steps to regain control of their cities? Peaceful protests during the day have been hijacked by criminals bent on destruction.

It was amazing to hear Emeryville Mayor Christian Patz, after vandals broke into about 10 retail stores in the city’s shopping district along Interstate 80. He took pains to assert the right to protest and the need to change without any condemnation of the criminals looting his city’s businesses.

Switching gears to Sacramento, now is the time to watch your wallet. As I wrote last week, the governor’s budget proposal that is now before the Legislature is beyond a worst-case scenario according to the Legislative Analyst and others. Democrats hesitate to cut program so raising taxes—even in these times—is their solution.

Take Kansen Chu, a Democrat from San Jose. He’s proposing a $275 head tax on companies with more than 500 employees. In other words, “tax the rich” and be sure that whatever recovery is even slower. It’s a classic anti-business tax that, if enacted, would provide big companies with yet another reason to move elsewhere.

As companies have learned during these shelter at home times, employees do not need to be in the office to be productive. And the office need not be in San Francisco, on the Peninsula or in Silicon Valley.

Remember when Seattle tried to put a similar tax through, it failed after Amazon opposed it and threatened to leave town.


State Sen. John Moorlach from Orange County wrote an opinion piece for CalMatters laying out a business-friendly approach that is the anti-thesis of Chu’s approach. He would postpone—if not outright kill-- the increase in the minimum wage to $15 plus repeal AB 5 that threatens freelancer workers in a variety of fields ranging from the arts to court reporters to journalists. He would cut taxes, reform worker’s compensation, repeal rent control edicts (he believes rents will fall with decreasing demand) and switch all pensions to shared-risk plans from the current very expensive defined benefits.

He concluded, “California enjoyed a decade of prosperity, but it covered up myriad expensive policy mistakes. Now the covers have been pulled off, revealing the rot underneath.”
For some perspective, consider what former Assemblyman Doug Ose wrote in the CalMatters newsletter last week. He pointed out that the state budget coming out of the Great Recession was $110 million in 2010. The population was about 38 million so the state was spending $2,895 per head.

The pre-COVID 2020-21 budget was proposed at $210 billion for the state’s population of 40 million or $5,250 per head. The population grew 5.2%, the U.S. cost of living rose 19% and the state’s spending soared by 81.3% per capita.

For perspective, consider the 2007-08 budget was $103 billion—it was up $1.8 billion over the prior year and was before the recession hit.

So, perhaps California has a spending problem—not a revenue problem.
We need your support now more than ever. Can we count on you?

Tim, agree with you 100%!!

All the "progressive" mayors in the bay area and our Governor still will not let our small businesses and restaurants and churches open, but they will allow giant groups of protesters to gather in close proximity.

Interesting how all the liberal media kept asking the infectious disease specialist if there was a threat of spreading the virus if we open churches, but not one of them has asked the infectious disease specialist if there was a threat of spreading the virus by gathering in large groups of protesters.

In fact, none of these "protest" are lawful, as we still have orders prohibiting groups of people from gathering together. Has the media mentioned this? Of course not.

It's very disturbing to view peaceful protestors being attacked by police. Americans have a duty to speak out against destructive policies which harm all citizens and residents.

Trump and his Republican Criminals are responsible for the current outcry of injustice in America. Trumps is driven by Greed. He has no concern for the lives of hard working responsible citizens. He is solely responsible for supporting the divisive behavior that we experience daily.

I believe that the criminal behavior of the police, politicians, thugs will continue indefinitely.

God Bless America. Stay home and do what you must do to stay healthy.

A Corp business Tax at $250 per head is peanuts. Big tech companies have fueled the housing need, caused high prices and traffic gridlock while they make millions and billions. They need to step up and help pay for road improvements and housing construction. If some left for Texas, Idaho or Nevada it wouldn't bother me. Take all the congestion, population growth, and high housing costs with them.

Trump is an imbecile and the most intelligent advisors have been fired because he does not understand complex and sensitive situations needing leadership. I don't doubt there are organized provocateur groups, both domestic and international taking advantage of ethnic tension and suffering to create government instability. Again, he needs to show evidence or quit adding his own paranoid blabber to the blame game

Tim, As a Christian and an elder at a church, you have an opportunity to use this forum to demonstrate and share love and grace. Instead you criticize the political leaders that you oppose and disagree with (Democrats). How about using your forum to talk about the work that you do for Heart for Africa and that 400 years ago, Africans were brought here as slaves and have never been treated as equal citizens. The fact that there is institutional racism embedded in every aspect of this country and unless you are black or brown, you have no idea what it means to be one. In addition to criticizing democrats, how about talking about the fact that your favorite president Trump used a Bible asa prop at a sacred church after his Attorney General ordered peaceful protesters to be pushed out violently so they can put up a show for “evangelical" Christians like you. Trump and his so-called Christian supporters have abused and destroyed the term Evangelicals, who were first century Christians that were killed and tortured by Romans because of their faith. The “evangelicals" today are not them - Trump and his buddies are more like the Romans who did the terrible acts. You should be ashamed of yourself!

Great proposal - let's cancel raising minimum wage to keep poor people poor and force them to work 2-3 jobs so they can only afford to live in poverty in California. At the same time, let's give even more tax breaks to corporations and rich people after Trump's tax BS so they can buy more of their company stocks and pay great bonuses to themselves. It will trickle down - right ? If you believe this, Trump has a bankrupt casino to sell to you or you can go get a degree from Trump University.

Economics, budgeting, common sense fiscal management are not prerequisites for eligibility for political office - especially in CA (and NY, IL, MD, CT to name a few). Witness the real imbalance of CA's budget ($54 billion for the current budget year & an additional +$245 billion for CalPERS & CalSTRS pensions). For a politician, or some making comments to Mr. Hunt's coherent, cogent article, the classic mistake they consistently and "reliably" make is using inductive reasoning where they induce their own premises to develop a contrived solution. The ruling political party in CA, and their fellow travelers nationally, insist they make decision "using the data/science" - they haven't, they don't and because of that history, they can't. Rather, they classically "project" their feelings, desires and solutions with the guaranteed result being to degrade rather than improve the situation.

It must be nice to be a white older man that can work and write articles from home while judging the REACTION of systemic racism in this country. Tim, you uploaded this editorial on June 2nd. It might behoove you to be an adult as well and fact check yourself- Oakland DID issue curfew on June 1st. You fail to even recognize that protests will continue with or without a curfew. Death doesn't recognize time the way you do and the racism that plagues this country will continues....while you worry about a curfew that was set. Maybe a white man shouldn't be writing articles regarding curfews in times of civil unrest when he can so flippantly continue his thoughts by "switching gears". As read somewhere on social media this morning, it's a privilege to educate yourself about racism instead of experiencing it.

Btw- I'm not antifa or some extreme left wing person that is looking to plot some heinous act. I grew up in this town, still come back as family live here but this town is known for its "I'm not racist, I have POC friends" citizens.

Most of you here that say it's Trumps fault are just listening to CNN & MSNBC fan the flames. Keep voting Democrat and the same politician and you'll never see any change. What's next should we go back and say it's Bush's fault? Yes that cop is guilty and should be punished. Floyd death was a tragedy YES. But he also had traces of fentanyl and methamphetamine in his blood. Not all police officer are bad. I know many too. Yes we all have the right to speak out and demonstrate in a peaceful manner. The looting and rioting and destroying peoples property is not the right way of doing it. It's wrong and these criminals should be punished. What if some of you lost your business are family was mugged. Two wrongs don't make it right. Bad cops should be punished.

To Rick - I agree politicians are terrible at managing money and economy. It is important to comment about all sides not just the political party that you and Tim for some reason dislike. The current administration and Congress blew out the deficit In the last tax cut and now has to go even deeper in the hole because of the pandemic. Now, Tim and his political friend are proposing to cut minimum wage while at the same time the Trump administration is trying to get rid of Poor people's healthcare insurance in the courts. How about fixing it if you don't like it as opposed to taking it away _ forcing poor people not to go doctors for preventive care only to go to emergency rooms when they are very sick and cost the system a ton of money to care for them. The Republican Party is moving away from main stream more and more unfortunately. We need multiple parties in this country but the Republicans attract old white people or young racist people who have learned from their old white parents to hate brown and black people - just take a look at Trump town halls.

To kjgamble - I agree that the rioting and looting is to be condemned. But, as long as the toot cause of the problem - being racism - is not addressed, there will unfortunately continue to be rioting and some bad elements of the society will take advantage to loot. They must be arrested and punished. My fear is that we keep having these instances of racism followed by protests, riots and looting. One administration puts in guardrails and oversight and the next administration takes them down.

To No Name,

You are not a racist if you did not for president Obama. You are not a racist if you voted for Trump in 2016 because you just didn't like the other candidate. But, you must question yourself and your family and associates if you all continue to support Trump in 2020. You are most likely a racist if you think Trump is good for America or at a minimum, you just don't care which is probably worse.

By you saying if I vote for Trump in November makes me a racist is the most stupidest thing I ever heard. First of all you know nothing about me or my family. Where I'm from and the friends that I associate with. Yes Trump does say say things that I disagree with. But he campaigned on jobs, economy, and making America first. Something that no other president did before. We're the strongest county in the world. He brought back jobs to the USA. What's wrong with that? I have many, many friends who are small business owners. People in trades, retail, security,special services, etc. They have been so busy and doing very well since 2016 at the start of Trumps Presidency. These individuals and companies weren't doing well under Obama. Isn't he a Democrat? They're supposed to be for the people right? If I'm missing something here explain it to me please. I'm sick and tired of the same politicians who have been in office for 30+ years they've had their chance. But people keep voting them back into office. You're never going to see change than. I will end with this with the line of work that I'm in. The last 3.5 years have been very good.

Trump opened up the pockets of the Government in a similar way if you receive a credit card with no limit and then start spending money. It is wonderful in the short-term because the government keeps printing money. But, what about long-term? We will see.

Also, Trump is a good-times type of leader" . He fired all the great advisors that were trying to keep him in line. Now he has third-fourth rate people around him. He and his team are not able to handle crisis situations like the 2 we are in right now. He and his team play the blame game. They are accountable and they screwed up. Now, the country is in trouble with 40% unemployment in people who make less than $40k / year.

You care more about your pocket than what this country is all about. In the Bible, you are type of person who builds your house on sand. I would rather build my house on solid rock foundation so it will last even during crisis.

If you did not vote for 44 because he is black, you are a racist. If you did not vote for him because you do not agree with his political views you are not racist.

If the only reason a person voted for him is because he is black (and no other reason), you are a racist. Voting for or against someone based solely on race is racist.

The same goes for voting for Trump. If votes are based solely on him being white that is racist.

Biden picking his VP based solely on race is racist, solely on being a woman is sexist.

Regarding Tim writing on more Christian type topics, he has been criticized when he has done this. He can't win....

You're missing the point here. I used to vote Democrat before. But in the 80's I changed my political position and voted for Regan and never looked back. Like I stated before these politicians Pelosi, Feinstein, Newsom, should I continue? They have held these positions for 30+ years. Have you been to San Francisco lately? It used to be a nice place to live. Not anymore. Why? Because the same people keep get voted back in. You both want to castrate Trump for Covid-19 and a stupid police officer. The riots and looting are Trumps fault right? How come nothing was said or done during Obama's administration for the Ferguson riots? The main stream media didn't blame him. Yes I'm sure you're both educated men who do well meaning $$$ Or you couldn't afford to live here in Pleasanton or the Tri Valley. So Carl didn't be the first one to cast a stone!!!

Not sure your comment is directed to me......

My background:
I've lived in Pleasanton for almost 50 years

A graduate of Amador

I have. BS and MS - worked to pay my own way

I was a life long Republican until CA offered “non partisan “ option for voter registration. I find both Dems and Reps way too extreme and support a more balanced moderate approach to government. I vote for candidates I support, not against candidates I can't support. I did not vote for Trump nor Clinton. I voted independent to show I did not support the terrible candidates offered by the Dems and Reps

Your assumption that I am rich because I live here is not correct. I could not move here now - I'm fortunate I bought my small house 22 years ago but could barely afford the mortgage

I'm the sole worker in my home which makes it tough to make ends meet for many years

Pleasanton used to be a very middle class town - back in the last century. Now it is town of rich jerks with an entitlement attitude and full of rich snobs.

I am fortunate I have lived outside of CA and know there are many nice places to live and many nice, normal people to live around. People not warped by the rich, moneyed jerks in this town.

I have a couple more years to work and then I will retire, cash out my real estate and escape this rotten state

You're right about Pleasanton. I grew up on the other side of the Bay. A sibling of mine come to Pleasanton back in 1969. So I've seen a great deal of change here as well. I remember at one time there was no I 580 freeway. It was called 50 and it was two lanes. Yes I feel the same way about the state of California. No one in Sacramento seems to know what they're doing. Yes. It does take two people working to live here and raise a family.

Silicon Valley avoiding to pay benefits or investing in the country and its people that's made them wealthy. Burdening the middle class Californians with additional taxes? Why not just send us the MLS from other states? These companies skirt H1 VISA limits with loopholes, claiming they are not a burden, have specialized skills. Yet, those families from south of the boarder, caged, seperated from their kids. They didn't loot, start fires, are being caged because of where they were born. M1 visa recipients, come to US, 'sponsor ' their parents, grand parents, aunts uncle s. Once here the elders are receiving medical, benefits that our parents worked for.

The protests and riots are not Trump's fault. Trump is a racist and many other ists. But, Racism existed in America long before him. Coved-19 is also not his fault. But, It is his and his team's fault the terrible way they are handling both situations. Retired General Mattis said it best yesterday. Go read his statement. Mattis was Trump's Defense Secretary until about12 months ago.

Trump is a bad president and bad person. Both parties have caused problems in this country. To point to democrats alone as cause of problems is wrong. If you are voting for a president to protect your pocket, and overlook everything else, then you are missing out on what America is all about.

In reading your post to No Name. You seem to keep stating that No Name only thinks about him or herself, and their wallet during these difficult times. Wasn't the United States built on capitalism? Please don't tell me you're for Socialism or equal wealth. As a woman who came to this county from a socialist one at an early age you have no idea what it's like. My family came here from Venezuela. So please don't get me started about Venezuela. If you're for that kind of government good luck. I think you need to go and live there for awhile and experience it. I've worked hard in my life to get to where I'm at right now. My parents had nothing when we came here. They couldn't afford to pay for three children to go to college. I worked and studied hard in school and get into one of the top schools in California. Graduated with my MS and doing very well for myself. So I personally disagree with your statement you made to No Name about looking out for their own interest.

This post is really interesting! I will surely tell this to other people that they must read this one because they will surely get a smile. Well, let me introduce you our website Web Link. Tree removal services in Greensboro can and will improve the quality of your life. We all know that hazardous trees can be dangerous to our home and other assorted property, but tree removals can also improve your home's curb appeal. Just about everyone knows - or currently has themselves - someone with a tree issue that needs to be addressed.The fact of the matter is that it can be an expensive undertaking, one of which requires a professional service staffed with people who know what they're doing. They should practice safety, accuracy, and professionalism.

"Great proposal - let's cancel raising minimum wage to keep poor people poor and force them to work 2-3 jobs so they can only afford to live in poverty in California"

Let's be VERY CLEAR about what keeps people poor: WELFARE

The Democrats have created a different plantation for an underclass that is all too willing to take what they are providing. Add to that the decimation of the black family by eliminating the need for a Father and you have the makings of modern day slavery.

The only difference? You don't have to work.

And you sit there and snidely say that raising the minimum wage will help. It won't.

Businesses that hire at minimum wage are already adjusting to wage increases by incorporating efficiencies into their operations. They're also cutting back hours for remaining employees and hiring part time.

Socialists and communists never understand supply and demand. They are doomed to failure.

Nice to see you fellas! Practically every time I had been using assignment writing help service while learning at school. One of my favourite English language teachers asked me to write a huge school letter. Mostly, I hated these types of work, so I prefered to pay money for that. And now I am using pretty cool online Web Link that helps me a lot with all of my difficult writings!!!
