Re: “Grandma Ingrid teaches people how to make food and build community in Arroyo Grande

Nice, teaching the lost arts. Good for her. Maybe women will realize that when they are older being surrounded by a large family in a warm home you made is better than making power point presentations and having your one kid raised by strangers

Re: “Vexed and loving it!

Contrast the national medias reaction of the Nathan Phillips standing at the bus stop controversy and the Smollett lynching hoax. It is a good indicator of the direction of the economic zone that is USA.

How about they pull all of their weedsources, I mean resources, to fixing the holes in Higuera, you know, basic government stuff.

Oh, Einstein isn't white, he's Jewish. Hey I don't make the rules.

Re: “Decorum deplorum

I bet if the ballots were return envelopes collecting money they would figure out how to do it over night.

Pushups are now racist. Please make a note of it.

Speaking of milking the racism cow, why is there an ad for an Anne Frank event on this website? The Anne Frank story has been debunked several times, including by the author himself. They're really milking that one. Cheesy

Re: “Local nonprofit works to spread awareness about chronic pot use

Why does New Times have a section dedicated to cannabis? Is this a pro cannabis publication? It's highly irresponsible.

Re: “Rap-poetess Noname plays the Fremont Theater Feb. 20

If you are white you can't say it because of your privilege. That's the law. New Times needs to hire a diversity officer and educate the white employees about their privilege.

Re: “A wage debate

It's complex is an excuse elites give when talking about something that would bring into question the legitimacy of their position. I mean what, we're not smart enough to understand these big brained issues? We are told the Israeli Palestine question is complex, private prisons are complex, having a national health plan is complex, etc etc etc. I actually think the author lays out the issue decently, albeit in a roundabout way, but you can tell what it's really all about. However please avoid the abstract corporate HR department style language, people tend to shy away from that and it comes off as dishonest whether or not it is. Direct honesty will get people further these days. Like just admit that in a market economy the disabled are screwed, there is no place for them. They won't ever compete with abled bodied and they shouldn't have to. These people shouldn't be working in a market system at all. It's kinda sad and gross to try to integrate them as it just highlights the fact that they aren't suited for the rat race.

Re: “So many questions about Russia and Trump

Let me humor the old people who still watch broadcast televisions for a moment.

Lets see how Russian involvement could happen. Yeah, it can happen. A few hundred million strategically spent could tip the balance, given America is in such volatile state. I mean what would Manafort's fee normally be - somewhere in the multi-millions? That's a few million of illegal money right there, plus everyone knows a good campaign manager can win it for the underdog. (I mean drug money basically elected Frida Kahlo, but lets leave that for now)

Hilary needed to spend billions, because what she was selling didn't enjoy popular support. Whereas Trump being a celebrity, could guarantee 30 percent of the vote for no outlay, because 30 percent of the population is basically impressed by celebrity. So someone like Manafort offering his services free-of-charge to a Right-wing celebrity candidate could make the difference. Put it this way, if John Podesta offered his services free-of-charge to the Anti-Putin opposition, what would the Kremlin think? They'd naturally think - he's working for the State Department or whatever. They'd probably arrest him or kick him out the country. But like I say, in no way am I jumping to the deffence of America's election rules;, the US have broke the rules of other countries' on hundreds of occasions, so they're getting a little of their own medicine, just spelling out objectively, that Russia could've won it for Trump. Manafort could have been the straw that broke the camel's back. Mind you, that just demonstrates how open to subversion the US really is. With 40 years of Neo Liberal policies, it doesn't take much to tip the balance, America was prone to go Right, Russia just pushed it over the finishing line.

Ok, now here's what's wrong with this obsession with Russia.

Basically Trump won, period.

And he won in the most legitimate way since... FDR? Hillary's 95% brainwashing from control of the media/intelligence organs of the state and 5% popularity couldn't beat Trumps 99% popularity + 1% Russian sourced intelligence about Hilarys nefarious activities (we're assuming that the Dems are correct about all that). That's the thing about this, if the Democrats are correct, it still means they lost and lost in a big way, like they lost in a way elections haven't been lost in America before. That's why you are seeing 24/7 royal flip out on corporate/military industrial complex controlled media. All pointing at that tiny bit that Russia may have influenced, completely ignoring (or covering up) the fact that they have lost control of the narrative.

It reminds me of when Jill Stein the green party candidate spent millions to force a recount in order to pay tribute to Hillary because she knew people would blame her for Trump. Her recount ended up turning a few more electoral college members against Hillary. There is a great realignment happening. Maybe the Democrats should focus on Americans in despair, not being able to secure a home and start families, the decline of the white birth rate, opiate addiction and the suicide rate. Naaaah, let's start WW3 with Russia.
