    Thank you, Waterdog. I agree that there is no reasoning with some people, but we must not cede the public forum to those that yell, rant, and beat people up (ANTIFA.) They can't win arguments with us on the merits of Communism, so all they have left is to try and silence debate with violence and personal attacks. We should be able to disagree and still live together as a community.

    The great majority of the people who haven't left the state, just want to be left alone to feed their families, and serve their community. When our government fails to protect the common good, we should be able to point that out without fear of losing our job or getting slammed upside the head with a bicycle lock. I am afraid that we are living the old Chinese curse: "May you live in interesting times." Maybe if more people would speak out (as opposed to lash out) we might be able to work together to make California a place people want to move TO and not away from.

    Waterdog, yes I remember those places too, use to buy firecrackers, M-80's and other good stuff in Chinatown! Took several girlfriends to the city for fun, used to be a good, safe, fun place.

    my first 4 yeaars in the navy was in the bay area, nas alameda for a year, hunters point for
    about 3 years, t.i. for school 16 weeks I think it was and mare island for 4 weeks. I enjoyed
    it there then, being from Muskogee it was almost like going to a fair for a while, then I got
    used to being in the 'city'. enjoyed most of my time while there but was happy when I left
    and had no intentions to return. since then I had to go there 1 time on business
    and all the other times was just thru the airport.
    be safe

Coca-cola and Seven-up both had bottling plants that are long gone. Folgers coffee and MJB were also there. The embarcadero had semi's lined up 3-4 deep waiting to get onto the piers to unload their cargo and their was a rail line (State Belt) that serviced the piers. Armour and Swift had meat processing plants with live animals in Butcher town which was where the city's recycling plant is now. Much more that I don't remember or don't care to mention, SAD.

    Upper right corner of the Homepage select settings.

    Under My Account select Edit Ignore List and enter the username of the member(s) you want to ignore.

    This will block their posts and replies so you won't see them anymore unless you remove them from the ignore list.

    I'm not sure if this will block them from pm'ing you or not but you can select to only receive pm's from Mods and your contacts list.

    I am surprised he has not been banned already with his attacks on other members here. I remember when that was not tolerated.

    Taiki inform the mods of his PM. He threatened me a while back via pm. I sent a copy to one of the mods and I believe he
    was banned for a few days. This guy needs permanent banishment. I laughed at his threat but it did piss me off.

    As I see it there is little choice, you either have a constitutional government or you do not. We do have a set of guidelines and rules to follow every day, some do not wish to follow most of them. Some like to make the rules but do not care to follow the rules they make. Socialism, Communism, Nazi parties, or religious zealots are not one's to follow. They all have a simple tier of control with two societies, rich, and then the rest. The front runners in the upcoming elections are funny to watch because all of them are rich, but they like to spread distrust of others who are rich, how rich is that? I say enjoy what you have and go fishing, and shoot the breeze with those who are fishing with you....Jetspray

    i've alwys thought that the only reason people got into politics was for the money, President Trump
    just blew my thoughts out the window.
    be safe
