What Would A 'Frictionless Border' Between San Diego And Tijuana Look Like?

Duck,
Did you happen to read the UT article or do you restrict your reading to the more liberal leaning media? My comments above come from the fact that I found out much more about the study by reading reports from both "sides".

The fact that the border is totally controlled by Homeland Security without significant input from either State or Commerce is a key factor in restricting the economic growth of cross border relations/business. While security is certainly important there has to be a better way to maintain security without strangling commerce and tourism.

Before you judge my left or right tendencies you might want to look into opinions expressed rather than condemning me because my reading has a broad range.

What Would A 'Frictionless Border' Between San Diego And Tijuana Look Like?

Maybe KPBS should have waited to read the more complete Union Tribune article on this topic before skimming off the liberal dream part for dissemination.

A more full look at the study brought a lot more light to the many factors involved.

California High-Speed Rail Allowed To Seize Parcels If Needed

Japan's rail system including the Shinkansen are truly wonderful. That had a national will to rebuild and a lack of lawyers and politicians to complicate every step of the process.

California is paralyzed by political correctness and environmental lawyers profiting at every little step of the process. All of the state's major cities, who actually need high speed rail, will ever allow the disruption caused by the construction and operation of new transportation methods. NIMBYs, environmentalists, lawyers, a totally dysfunctional government beauracracy - a perfect storm to prevent the kinds of progress needed for California to recover it's former glory. Sad but true.

Another step on the road to the Land of Oz - this state boondoggle just continues to amaze all and ignore reality at every step. Someone please look behind the curtain and stop this disaster.

Gov. Brown Has OK'd Releasing More 'Lifers' From Prison Than Predecessors

It looks like Gov. Moonbeam is trying to make the state match the model city he left after his tenure in Oakland. High crime, lots of gangs, racial tension - you know, model California after prison society.

Faulconer Defeats Alvarez For Mayor; Vows To Unite San Diego

The polls showed a virtual tie. What made the huge difference in the results? Maybe Obama's endorsement had an effect after all.

President Obama Endorses Alvarez In San Diego Mayor's Race

At a time when most democratic politicians facing election are doing their best to distance themselves from Obama the San Diego mayors race rates an endorsement? Maybe folks should think twice about the impact of Obama interest in a town he rarely visited or mentioned. Who more desperate? Alvarez or Obama?

San Diego River Restoration Involves Clearing Homeless, And Their Trash

Why not move them (homeless or whatever euphemism you choose) into the canyons surrounding SDSU so the river will be clean and the faculty, students and alumni can provide assistance without having to travel or get their feet wet?

Jamul Casino Construction Begins In San Diego's East County

Apparently common sense and the good of the community have once again been over ruled by $$$BIG MONEY$$$ . While I don't live in Jamul, I use Highway 94 frequently and I am very concerned that the added traffic will be a major problem for those who use the road. My problems with the casino are minuscule when compared with the local residents. I find it interesting to note that common sense opposition is immediately branded as "racist" in the second comment on this topic. How simple to trot out that tired argument for every issue or controversy.

I don't envy the local residents who will bear the brunt of the impact of this misguided project.
