I say YES, if someone had asked me about this a few years ago I would of said no but I have seen theRead More medicinal benefits that marijuana has provided for loved ones that have become ill and I would much rather see someone smoking a plant that comes out of the ground then being all strung out on drugs that their Doctor thinks might work. The history of marijuana and it's healing properties speak for itself. As far as Government being involved in it, well Government is involved in everything!!!

Flatiron Construction is a private company. They did bid and won. They barely broke ground on itRead More "a year ago." People develop very unrealistic expectations for how long these jobs take. That is why they use the phrase "projected completion."

Vic: Your right about what you said and not to disagree with you but only the one that is about toRead More die unfortunately from perhaps a painful disease can rationalize how they want the end game to play out. Perhaps another look at assisted suicide might be in order. True, it may be against certain religious beliefs but its between God and the person that is begging him to take him and no one else. A policeman may have to think now before pulling the trigger and say to himself, Am i doing this person a favor? or, Will i feel good i put him out of his/her misery knowing that? or am i in front of some nut with a gun and can i talk him out of this? You cant pay me enough to do the job the police have to do and i wouldnt want to make the decisions they have to. Dont know what tomorrow brings, and i dont know what i personally will do if tomorrow brings bad news.
Vic April 23, 2014 at 06:34 pm
I agree, all-c-ing-eye. It's a hard concept to wrap your head around no matter which way you look atRead More it. It's sad that, in this day and age, anybody has to make a decision like this, whether it be the suicidal victim or the police having to decide whether to talk him down or shoot him down. Is assisted suicide legal anywhere in the U.S.?
Vic April 23, 2014 at 06:40 pm

Stone opposes and will work to repeal ObamaCare, according to his web siteRead More http://www.jeffstone2014.com/issues/. If Stone believes in the free market and that government should stay out of health care, why does the County not walk the talk and get out of the health care business? Why has the County expanded government with 5 conservatives at the helm? The County just borrowed $2 million from the Worker's Compensation Fund for sewers in wine country -- a project that is only half funded -- but the local press doesn't find that story newsworthy.

County Supervisor's Jumping on the Band Wagon... Let the record reflect that I was the firstRead More civilian to endorse Mike Hestrin Publicly in Riverside County...I am Kind of proud of that! A few weeks later Zellerbach showed his appreciation and I was charged with multiple felonies he created literally out of thin air. It took a few months for my case to wind it's way through the court system. In the end, THREE separate judges ruled "NO CRIME WAS COMMITTED! ALL charges have been dismissed. I as Chairman of The Riverside County Leadership Forum, Zellerbach must have felt that my support for Mike Hestrin, his opponent might perhaps be the beginning of his undoing. When I sent out a memo to campaign donors that I was going to be supporting Mike Hestrin and that I suggested they wait to start writing checks to Zellerbach's campaign until they were able to meet Mike and get a better understanding of him, that they might also decide he was the better of the two candidates. A few days after that email went out, Zellerbach was forced to cancel a fundraiser due to lack of interest. Less than a week later, I received a letter from the DA telling me to turn myself in to the court and answer to Felony Death Threats and Stalking charges, ALL of my firearms have been confiscated by Zellerbachs orders and I am still to this day left defenseless in my very own home because of Paul Zellerbachs abuse of his authority. I will expand on this in our next newsletter that will be hitting email inboxes across Riverside County in a few day's Learn more about The Riverside County Leadership Forum here: http://www.riversideforum.org/

A PART OF THE PROBLEM IS THE CUT IN BUDGET FOR THE COUNTY MENTAL HEALTH FACILITY. Persons thatRead More needed prescriptions to functions that needed a doctor interview to refill used to go to an appointment at any of several offices. The county cut out the branch and made everyone have to go to the main county mental hospital. There were no APPOINTMENTS. EVERYONE HAD TO WAIT ABOUT 4 HOURS OR MORE TO SEE THE DOCTOR FOR SEVERAL MINUTES AND GET THEIR PRESCRIPTIONS REFILLED. People were standing in line for two or three hours every morning before the doctors even started seeing patients. The waiting AREAS WERE CROWDED AND STUFFY. I took someone there on several occasions. The nurses and staff were nice, but there were not enough of them. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- I THINK IT IS LIKELY THAT THE NUMBER OF SUICIDES IN RIVERSIDE COUNTY INCREASED BECAUSE OF THIS. ----- I THINK THERE WERE PERSONS WHO WERE ABLE TO BE EMPLOYED WHEN THEY HAD THEIR MEDICINE HAD TO STOP WORKING OR GOT FIRED BECAUSE THEY HAD TO MISS SO MANY DAYS FROM WORK TO GET THEIR DOCTOR INTERVIEW AND MEDICINE.

Every time one of my rentals are vacant, I get postcards (and phone calls) in the mail fromRead More investors wanting to buy the house for cash. I see signs on the street everywhere like that too. It's the 1% accumulating vast amounts of wealth to turn the USA into a nation of renters so people will be their economic slave till they're 100 years old.

Sorry Bill Harvey but I am not sure what you may have misunderstood about "50% of the proceedsRead More will be donated to..." That is written twice in the body of my post.

Everyday Mathematics is just one of the programs that makes a heck of a lot of $ off of the millions of textbooks sold to schools that teach to the 'Core.' The Common Core isn't just restricting for teachers & students, it's lining people's pockets.

Also on the Northville MI Parents for Educational Excellence page you can see links to the tests toRead More see how bias they are. Teachers will teach to the tests and if they are teaching something you don't like - too bad because it is on the test! *****There is also a link to the social studies standards. The social studies standards and science standards are liberal-bias, anti-American and actually just not accurate in a lot of cases. They tell our kids that they as citizens are meant to follow all the rules of the big bad government, for example. Things that made this country great and are still in existence, are few and far between - like the government is for the people and by the people and has limited powers... You wont find what the powers that be (follow the money) don't want the kids to learn. ******We all know what Hitler and many others have said about how to get to a nation and that is thru the kids minds... The proof is all there - please dig! Read the tests. ******We all WISH this was just "minimum standards"!
