Ken Cinema Closing As A Landmark Theatre

So, what's at the core of this theater closing and San Diego Opera ceasing operations?

Is it a lack of interest by the public? How else are they going to keep operating without people paying money for their services? Since it takes money to pay for electricity, staff, etc., etc.

Yes, Government should provide a number of services to the public.

But theaters and opera? As Government sponsored programs? That's a little too much.

'Generous' Contracts Could Be San Diego Opera’s Biggest Liability

WOW!!!

"The policy pays Campbell $107,000, tax free, per year beginning in March 2012 for a period of 15 years, totaling $1.6 million."

I am in the WRONG job market!

As a Systems Engineer, I'm paying taxes like there's no tomorrow!

I need to go work for a non-profit and milk it for every penny!

California Fares Poorly In Election Performance Review

"If someone went to the Secretary of State’s website in California, they can’t find out where their polling place is." Becker says

Really? I just used Google and found it here: http://www.sos.ca.gov/elections/find-...

I scrolled down to San Diego (where I live) and then found the link here: http://www2.sdcounty.ca.gov/rov/Eng/E...

It's not that hard people.

Faulconer Defeats Alvarez For Mayor; Vows To Unite San Diego

"I'm a uniter, not a divider." Where have we heard that one before? I guess we'll just have to take the wait and see approach.

Faulconer Continues Attack On Labor Support Of Alvarez: 'They're Trying To Buy This Election'

True. I would also prefer a viable "third party" candidate. The problem is that when one appears, the Democrat and Republican parties stop fighting each other and then join forces to destroy that third party.

For example, during the Presidential elections. The rules were setup specifically to exclude third party candidates from the debates. And without major support and major funding, a viable third party can't get off the ground. Let alone successfully elected into office.

So, we end up voting for the "lesser of two evils" type of scenario.

Faulconer Continues Attack On Labor Support Of Alvarez: 'They're Trying To Buy This Election'

Both parties are trying to "buy" this election.

It basically comes down to this. One candidate is being largely supported by labor unions (which are made up of workers) and the other is getting huge support from business owners (the people the own the businesses where many of the union people work.)

If labor wins, then they feel they will get more power to be able to control their working conditions (pay, hours worked, days off, holidays, pensions, retirement, 401K, etc.) Basically things that will benefit the workers.

If business wins, then they feel that they will get more power to have more control over labor (pay, hours worked, days off, holidays, pensions, retirement, 401K, etc.) Basically things that will benefit the business owners.

From my understanding, business has been getting their way for several decades at the expense of the working class and infrastructure that is outside of the downtown San Diego area.

Things have gotten lopsided as a result and now it's time for the workers to be in power and level things out a bit.

Alvarez for the win!
