It's a race between Livermore getting BART and NIF hitting break even. I am 62 and I don't think I will see either in my lifetime.

They both continue to be talked about for the same reason. Talking about them maintains interest and keeps money flowing.

Will also bring more crime is the downside.

Many people including myself avoid the Pl. Mall because of the large increase in crime including grab and run.

I do not believe the propaganda, it will hurt Livermore.

I am curious if it will help in other ways though, like housing values and traffic probably better traffic for Pleasanton.

Uber is better. But a bullet proof vest helps.

As for NIF it can comfortably house 1000 migrants. And if they are all dog chipped they can be tracked in the facility

Separate but equal has been rejected as public policy. Mostly separate is a wise private policy in these times where the cry for public freedom far exceeds the demand for public virtue.

I wonder if open carry snd concealed carry states have more or less incidence of robbery?

Livrrmore will need an active police force to roust undesirables to move on. Good public services for conformists and resident needy should not be directed to transients or the capable who choose an indigent life style.

Livermore doesn't know how good it has it. Los Alamos is very close to, and has many employees who live in Espanola, which has one of the worst drug and crime problems in NM. LA County police are used to kids with drugs and adults with DWI, but an actual violent crime problem would overwhelm them in a minute. Who killed Tania Meissner?

Ahh the all too mindlessly pedestrian conversation of drug abuse being a community of color issue. As if thought its something that happens in vacuum and not because of other factors such as all the white kids who go to those hoods to get their supply which is why the drugs are there to begin with. Oh I'm sorry am I boring you with cumbersome facts, am I making you roll your eyes because your solipsistic mind can't fathom a reality in which your perception and thus the world is false? Not to worry this is a fair and loving Christian country, that's why since most mass shooters are white guys law enforcement is making sure to focus on them. That's why you see cops pulling them over all the time and searching their cars, searching them walking in public to make sure they are not going to pull out their concealed carry and open fire on a crowd of 3 year old children, that's why they are scrutinized and profiled so much. Don't get yourself down though there is hope, just go out into the streets and sing, " We shall overcome, we shall overcome some daaaayyyyyy..."

Your liberal screed aside, how about these facts: Mass shooting victims are a tiny percentage of shooting victims in the US, and the vast majority of all shooting victims are black, and are shot by blacks. You know, some claims can be checked before you post. Hint: Google.

February 29, 2016 at 1:53 PM said "mass shooters" not "shooting victims". You are conflating the two phrases to make a point but you are being intellectually dishonest when you do it, dude. I think that if you google "mass shooters" you will find they are predominantly white.

Truth hurts sometimes.

How about that for a fact check you conservative hack? 64% of all mass shootings are white guys. Black guys 16%, Asians 9%, Latinos non existent. I do believe 64% is greater than 50% so that makes it a majority or is my math too complicated for you. Next time you want to impress us all with your big name drops like google try using it yourself before making yourself look like the buffoon you really are. I mean I put the search criteria into google and the site above poped up in the top 5 so what the hell are you talking about? Where exactly do you find your info on the net David Dukes web site? What did you put into your search criteria anyway mass shooting statistics according to KKK? Nice try momo.

I did not dispute those facts, I simply declared mass shootings to be irrelevant based on the factual statistics. I guess you didn't read, or couldn't really understand, my post. The fact that "mass shooters" are predominantly white is irrelevant if you are concerned about the number of shooting victims overall. Re-read my post. And then find some relevant argument to make. To repeat, mass shootings are statistically insignificant, most shooting victims are black, and most shooting victims are shot by blacks.

Mass shootings at both of you. Take your vitriol to the fraidy kat blogvand let us mass murderers continue frank intercourse of the future of the labs and its important impact on employees and stakeholders. 225 grains to each of you shallow hals

"Mass shootings", you guys don't even bother to define what this means. That way, you can toss out any statistical factoids you like, because none of them mean anything.

If mass shootings are insignificant by statistical standards and most are committed by black on black then why worry about BART being in Livermore? If you're not black then you got nothing to worry about. And while we are on the subject of statistics according to your logic or I should say your interpretation of the statistics you're still more likely to get killed by a white guy than a Jihadi Arab Islamofascist ( using the terminology from the mouth of your hero Rush so you can relate), however I don't see white guys being scrutinized in any way compared to Arabs or Muslims. No media outlet is saying hey these white guys keep committing these horrible shootings there must be something wrong with them, they are not as civilized as us and its their culture of hate makes them so violent. I see that everyday regarding Arabs. So its not about statistics and that was the point of my original highly sarcastic post which obviously went over your head. Do you understand sarcasm or do I have to provide links to Webster online?

Most news outlets have focused on the need for greater need for mental health evaluation and reporting to keep the "crazies" from getting guns. As you have pointed out, and as everyone realizes, the "crazies" are mostly white. What part of this media coverage did you miss? None of that negates the fact that most people killed by guns in the US are black people, killed by other blacks. So if you are white, you are most likely to be killed by no one, but if you are black, you are most likely to be killed by another black. Statistically, that is.

Coward,
You don't need to say "Statistically, that is" if you say "most likely". It's just a nervous disclaimer that says "I'm not racist, really I'm not racist. It's the statistics. It's not me. It really isn't me".

Anonymous said...

Oh please. stop the knee jerking. If you know anything about statistics, you know that they apply to a sample or cohort, not to individual people. Get a clue and stop yelling "racist!" for God's sake.

Bigots. Tough language from the girly party: http://www.cosmopolitan.com/politics/news/a12893/strong-men-republican/

Explain logic:
Keeping illegal immigration illegal and enforcing border=bigotry
not accepting unkown, backgroundless folks from the middle east=bigotry
left wing=girly men

hint: then name calling is getting old. if you want to talk bigots what about robert "sheets" byrd only few years ago in congress from the dems.
