San Diego Chargers Will Seek New Mayor's Backing For Stadium

This issue shows a clear difference between free market capitalism and American capitalism.

If building a new stadium is a good idea, the owners and big developers will pay for one. If building a new stadium is not good economically, the fat cats will instead buy newspapers and politicians and try to convince enough people it is in everyone's interest to spend our tax money for a new stadium. They have calculated is is better to buy newspapers and politicians than to buy a stadium.

Legal Battle Over Encinitas Yoga Continues

Now they've got me paranoid!

It's easy to dismiss this bogus "yoga is religion" complaint as yet another example of religious fanaticism but I suspect there is another facet to this complaint. It could be part of their strategy. When they lose their court case, they will complain about liberal judges supporting foreign religious beliefs over their American Christian traditions. Perhaps it'll be a fundraising campaign aimed at other conservative and religious fanatics asking them to protect Christian beliefs before the liberal judges further erode our way of life.

Public Review Set To Begin For San Diego Trolley Extension Project


Riding the train is so much easier and more comfortable than air travel. And when you reach your destination, you just walk out of the train station and you are there. When I travel by plane, I normally spend much more time getting to the airport early and trying to get from the airport to my final destination.

Good public transportation makes even more sense for a city like San Diego that promotes tourism. The Coaster and the trolley are two of San Diego's best and most undervalued attractions.

High-Skilled Visa Requests Likely To Exceed Supply

I worked in telecommunications R&D for many years and there were times when we could not hire people fast enough. We always had a large pool of job candidates. When the visa quota was reached, our company, like all the rest, simply relied on workers who did not need a visa. We went on hiring and we found workers who were just as qualified and were just as good. But we didn't have anybody who needed a visa in the pool of candidates when the quota was used up. Companies had to offer more money to get the experienced candidates they wanted.

Businesses say they need these visas to get the best and the brightest but that simply is not true. Companies like these visa programs because it allows them to lower their labor costs because foreign workers are willing to work for lower wages.

With unemployment so high in this country, we should not be creating more visas to bring in people from another country to work here in the U.S. This request for more visas is a sign the economy is improving. Creating more visas will be a sign Congress is once again selling out American workers.

Counting Bike Trips Could Get More People To Pedal

I ride my bike on the sidewalk when I can because I want to avoid the added risk of riding with cars. Most drivers do OK with cyclists but it only takes 1 driver trying to text while driving to ruin a nice ride. The sidewalk where I ride is usually empty anyway.
