Oh, pah-lease. If you believe in man-made global warming you are either ignorant or an idiot. WhenRead MoreI was growing up I was told that lake Erie was "dead" and I saw bumper stickers that hippies had exclaiming "save mono lake." Those lakes are fine now. I was told "acid rain" was a problem but liberal 60 Minutes debunked that one. I know everyone can't be a highly educated white-male like me, but can't you try to fake it from time-to-time to not look so stupid? http://www.forbes.com/sites/larrybell/2013/02/05/in-their-own-words-climate-alarmists-debunk-their-science/

All those against fossil fuel usage should just go back to the caves! Oh no, they will just burnRead Morewo od and pump all that carbon into the air! I know, go to Mexico or south to a warmer climate and give up heat, and a cooking fire! Eat your food raw and stop farting out methane, another greenhouse gas!

Stock up on ammo, gold coins and cash. Clean your guns to keep the rif raf from stealing yourRead Moregene rator. Stock up on gasoline and bottles of Scotch. The booze can be traded with your neighbors for almost anything. You would be surprised!

I am wondering why Waste Management finds it ethical to pay Walnut residents only $1.00 every month Read Morefor all the recyclables we put in the blue bin. City should question them.

My elderly father was at this place. They kept him so drugged up he was a total zombie. He once Read Morewheeled himself out into the parking lot in his wheel chair. They were so alarmed that they kicked him out. Not his fault that they did not watch the door.

This is to update all of the registration dates. Dates 4/24, 5/6, 5/15, & 6/3. This year weRead Moreare introducing e-AYSO all volunteers must register via e-ayso.

Then bring the copies to one of the registrations and you will be EXPRESSED to the front of the line.

I claim exceptional qualifications to address this issue. And,I have studied the camera resultsRead Morefor the Walnut intersection from data provided through the Sheriff for a period from 7 years before the cameras and 7 years after that shows collisions from red light running are up 500%, from rear enders are up 67% and from all collisions are up 37%. These results have also been corroborated by data from the CHP SWITRS data base. Further, the most common citation from cameras is right turn on red (approx. 90%) which is a money making technicality that has resulted in ZERO collisions during the entire 14 years. I have met with all 5 council members who, except for Eric Ching, insist on meeting only with the city manager present. The meetings have been attended also by the past and present sheriff station captains. They have heard the complete results in the meetings and have received several e-mails from me documenting the discussions. Except for Eric, they have steadfastly stuck to myths, fallacies and folklore about the need and benefits of the cameras which are undocumented, unproven and inconsistent with the data. I have offered $1000 prizes for data and analysis which would prove their assertions. They have turned a blind eye to the results. I also have documented history of corruption by camera companies in general and Redflex in particular that reveals how they influence results and officials to buy into and maintain the camera programs. For example, Redflex was even thrown out of Chicago, a not so reputable city itself. Its behavior in the USA has resulted in the chairman of the Australian parent company to resign. Our city states it is earning about $140,000 a year, half of which goes to the Sheriff and half into the General fund. This is a possible violation of the vehicle code considering there is no safety benefit. Further, I have offered sound alternatives to cameras for improving safety at the intersection above and beyond just going back to the safer situation before the cameras. Redflex issues up to about a $1/4 million in citations per month at the intersection. Nationwide they get about 1/3 of the revenue. I have asked all the council members to sign a pledge to get rid of the cameras. Only Eric and the opposition candidate Betty Tang have done so. This whole matter is a disgrace to our city and a blemish on the election campaigns of Bob Pacheco and Mary Su who make no mention of it in their materials. I challenge anybody to make a credible case for the cameras and for our city keeping a relationship with this company.

Just what is an "infraction"? Is it a misdemeanor, or a felony? Is it a "civilRead Moreaction ", or a criminal act? Who is the complaining party? Who has suffered harm that needs to be made "whole" again? As in calling wages earned, "income" for tax purposes, this is government sponsored extortion, and not "legal" under the US constitution, even if 'laws" were written declaring otherwise.

An example, if you fail to appear on an "infraction" there is an arrest warrant issued in Read Moreyour name, converting that "infraction" into a criminal act, and the use of deadly force to ensure compliance is in effect. "Traffic court" is not constitutional, the right to travel freely unmolested by whatever means one chooses is a constitutional right. NOT A PRIVILEGE.
