This Is Exactly Why Oakland Is Oakland

Do you want to be a Big Boy or just the Fab 7x7’s whipping boy??? Grow a pair, my God!!!

Screw the ballpark… Look at the second part of the article…another $3 for tolls and no future cap…wow…

Bay Area voters will be asked next year to raise tolls by as much as $3 on all bay bridges, except for the Golden Gate, under a measure the Legislature just approved.

And more increases could follow, with no cap, based on a cost of living index.

What’d people expect? They spent 5x the budget on the Bay Bridge.


#4

Good!!! Raise raise raise! Bay Bridge way overcrowded. Raise toll to reduce traffic!!!


#5

Forces people to carpool or take BART…oh, never mind…

Which means…SF homes just got more expensive again. Cha-ching!!!

Sounds like discrimination


#8

Total BS. Stuff SF is known for too. I mean, doesn’t a contractor have a right to make a living? So, what happens if the only bidding contractors are much more expensive than a banned contractor? Are you really going to make the taxpayers pay more just to prove a point (whatever that is really)???

I thought Mexico was supposed to build the wall?


#10

Stupid politicians use taxpayer money doing useless things


#11

it’s called fostering economy.


#12

I would like to bid on building a wall around Oakland…lol


#13

Wait… then how am I going to drive home to SF from the East Bay??? :rofl:


#14

Need a wall around SF too… lol


#15

I caught wind of this last week when I was at Oakland Planning…


#16

Unbelievable…


#17

Maybe San Jose still has a chance, haha.

"The Growth Council’s affordable housing program was set up using money raised from the state’s cap-and-trade pollution credit auctions. "

Some people might point out that emissions stuff isn’t about emissions at all. It’s just a way to justify higher taxes to fund other pet projects for the left.

If only the Giants give up their rights to SJ, but they won.t
