All Offense

That’s right it's county budget time again. The battle of the bureaucrats: the Sheriff and Dave Kears have started staking out positions, the lobbying and bullying has begun. Local politicians have already started poor mouthing and blaming the medical center, the governor, the religious right, the mediocre middle and the apathetic left for the current state of financial affairs.

The sups plan to cut cut cut healthcare, but ask them about the prison budget, they’ll tell you, “You know the Sheriff is very popular.” Poppycock they’re scared of the dude.

This is not just another year, this year the public plans to weigh in on the budget. That’s right we’re fed up with county budgets that don’t reflect our values and priorities. This budget will not be balanced on the backs of the elderly and sick. This time we all get a say, stay tuned, it's pressure and accountability time, this is gonna be fun!


Postscript: In spite of ongoing problems and leadership deficits the medical center has a nearly balanced budget.

OF COURSE, THE SHERIFF IS GOING TO GET WHAT HE WANT WITH THE HELP OF THE COMMUNITY. YOU FORGOT MEASURE A, WAS PUSH AND HELP PASS BY OF THE HEALTH WORKER WHO EITHER DON'T LIVE IN ALAMEDA CO OR DON'T LIVE IN BAD AREAS OF OAKLAND. SO THE COMMUNITY WILL PROBABLY SUPPORT SHERIFF BEFORE THEY SUPPORT THE MEDICAL CENTER, FEARING FOR THEIR LIVES THE SHERIFF AND POLICE CAN MAKE THINGS LITTLE HARD WHEN YOU NEED HELP. SUCH AS BEING ON HOLD FOR A 911 CALL OR STAB VICTIM WILL HAVE TO MAKE APPOINTMENT TO AN OFFICER WHICH IS PROBABLY 6 MONTH LATER. YOU KNOW WHAT THEY SAY, A CRIMINAL STEAL YOUR CAR AND GET ARRESTED AN OUT BEFORE YOU GET YOUR CAR BACK.

Hello everyone!
I would like to burn a theme at this forum. There is such a nicey, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of financial piramyde, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For quite a long time, I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and I started with funny 500 bucks.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my blog to get additional info.
