Yeah, It's Still Hard Being Me

By Charles Harmison, published on Dec 5, 2006

...important to him. This country is as close as it has ever come to the legalization of marijuana. Even John McCain the front runner for the Republican nomination for 2008 has said many times that marijuana laws are extremely severe and could use some revision. Has the threat of the new San Francisco liberalism which has gained power in congress inspired this latest rash of arrests? Does law enforcement feel they need to get their licks in before the new hippie leaders in Washington take away their switches? For now at least, it is clear that unlike when a celebrity is arrested... (more)

Holy Horrific Hodgepodge!!!

By Chris Volkay, published on Nov 20, 2006

...and people should worship elsewhere. Pastors from all over the nation were outraged, with some attributing drops in both attendance and contributions. If I can find his address, I’m thinking about sending old Harold a couple bucks myself. Keep up the good work. According to the San Francisco Bay Guardian, a 31-year-old government lawyer has developed a side business. He sells silicone sexual devices in the shapes of religious icons, such as Moses and Satan. I think Buddha, being rather rotund, is out of luck here. His top of the line instrument is something known as the... (more)

The Most Dangerous Woman in the United States

By D. E. Carson, published on Nov 8, 2006

There she is, the most dangerous woman in America, Nancy Pelosi of San Francisco with the motto of the Democratic Party emblazoned on a projector screen. The New Direction, of course, is right into the toilet and straight on to hell. One nice thing about the United States of America is that American voters get the government they deserve. If they are stupid enough to fall for the lies and smears of the Democrats, then they deserve the shaft they are going to get. Time and time again, every effort has been made to present the truth and facts about this election, however, at every turn, the... (more)

Real Estate in Los Angeles - crash or soft landing?

By Dan Maier, published on Nov 6, 2006

...3 – 4 times your gross annual income or no more than 25% of your gross monthly income on a mortgage payment. This rule may gain some sway depending on your geographic location. For instance you may have to spend 5 – 6 times your income in popular cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco or New York where, coincidentally, some people are currently paying up to 90% of their monthly income on a mortgage payment with the rationale that the increase they are paying for their mortgage will be offset by the increase in equity they will receive via the current aggressive... (more)

Boyskout's "School of Etiquette"

By Caitlin McGuire, published on Nov 4, 2006

...entirely trust. However, the best track on the album is one of the closers: “Vitamin C.” The song is guitar driven; guided by Dahl and Lewine, while Satterfield’s sexually-charged, reluctant and snarling mumbles take second stage. I want to say that BoySkout is the San Francisco equivalent of The Yeah Yeah Yeahs. But they live in New York now. And we all know that between YYY, Boyskout, and Le Tigre, their isn’t enough room for three different androgynous female-fronted bands in the same city. So maybe BoySkout isn’t entirely original. But can you... (more)

...terrorists from coming and going freely? 2) Do you want your taxes to go up? 3) Do you believe in amnesty for 12 million illegal aliens in America? 4) Do you believe that America should extend Constitutional Rights to illegal aliens and unlawful enemy combatants? 5) Do you really want San Francisco values running this country with Nancy Pelosi as Speaker of the House? 6) Do you really believe Congress should waste valuable resources trying to impeach President Bush on trumped up charges? 7) Do you believe that we should stay in Iraq and finish the job? You have to answer those... (more)

Kindness Will Save the World

By Shari G, published on Oct 10, 2006

...essays.

Now I finally understand why they made you do essay outlines. Keep you on track Shari. Okay, this weekend. So my friend introduced me to some new music along the way in our friendship and I had really dug the musicians messages. My friend told me that they were playing in San Francisco this weekend at a music festival and I should check it out. Well, I looked up the website and saw it was a whole peace music festival (okay, I wont lie...a hippie fest). But there was something that appealed to me.

Number 1, I had never been to SF and had been dying to get there.... (more)

826LA: Changing Lives One Apostrophe at a Time

By J. La Mont, published on Oct 1, 2006

...heard of 826LA. Don’t worry you’re not alone. At least for now. 826 is a nonprofit started by Dave Eggers, founder of McSweeney’s and author of such works as A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius and Giraffe? Giraffe!. What started out as an act of love in San Francisco has spread like a benevolent cancer across our nation to Seattle, New York, Chicago, Ann Arbor and our own fair City of Angels. Its purpose is to support students aged 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to help teachers inspire their students to write. What this... (more)
