U-T San Diego Editor Doesn't Want Filner In Mayoral Race

Hey Mission... I was talking about the man's life spent helping countless San Diegans through charity and hard work and by example.

It is tragic Seau took his own life -- maybe you should look up traumatic brain injury and understand that taking his own life may end up saving a lot of other lives.

You must have been affected by a suicide. I can imagine no other reason for your vitriol, and I hope you find peace within yourself.

PS -- the article is about Jeff Light, any thoughts on him?

U-T San Diego Editor Doesn't Want Filner In Mayoral Race

I was also offended by the DeMaio endorsement attached to a sectional piece relating to a true SD hero, Junior Seau.

Then today, there is a prominent Hit Piece on Fletcher....

Since Manchester took over the UT has become virtually worthless for anything but fish wrapping and cat litter cleaning.

(note: I don't subscribe, my 86 year old mother does, I see it when I go to care for her. She has an attachment to the idea of holding a newspaper, more than to the UT -- I am working on switching her to LA Times)

Nonpartisan Voters Cannot Vote In Republican Primary

Thank you for the information. As a non-partisan who has never been a member of a political party, I find myself thinking this:
"If a political party demands I must join their ranks in order to vote in the primary [to make my voice heard in selecting the nominee], then I will never vote for their selected candidate in the general election ".

Hence, I will have the choice between the Democrat nominee/candidate and the American Independent nominee/candidate come November.

Frankly, this is a very bad move by the other parties -- as non affiliated is the fastest growing political identity in the state and the country.

Occupy Wall Street Protests Spread To San Diego

I looked to see when this would begin in San Diego as I agree that real change must come from the grassroots.... ha, ha, call it "flood up economics"! Or better..."roots of democracy refuse to feed the sick tree"!
Anyway, I hope to join you folks either Friday or in ensuing action. I would encourage you all to remember this is a peaceful protest movement -- the folks in NYC have been called "kind" and "good to one another", "respectful"; the police actions were unwarranted because of the peaceful nature of the occupation (and not supported by rank and file officers). Let's not expect some sort of bad behavior from police, etc. here -- because we are not there to revolt, we are there to --- in all seriousness and with our actions, not just our words... take our country back. Forward, but back under our control, the real, living people, not the SCOTUS created "persons"!

I am thinking we should use our handheld media devices and start a national "echo chamber" ... get a saying going in NYC and have it move across the country. Wouldn't that be cool?

Hope to see you... from a young [at heart ] but old in age fellow traveler.

Double Dip: Is U.S. Headed For Another Recession?

It was interesting to hear Tom from the SD Business Journal comment on the jobs numbers today. The gentleman came on the radio representing a BUSINESS journal and had not bothered to get the facts of this important number -- they had been published and reported since about 5:30 AM local time. He said, if the increased number was in public sector jobs -- it wasn't a good thing. I guess he forgot to pay attention to the 154,000 created in the private sector... an amount that was lowered by job losses in the public sector.

I would hope you folks bring people on that care enough about the listeners to have the information, especially such readily available fact. This country suffers from a disease of misinformation -- please do not feed this beast. Thank you.
