Re: “In the Spotlight

Two of the world's great mysteries.

1. Why do you think a simple-minded message of anti-capitalist hate is "public art"? It is simple minded crap from simple minded people who think only their ideas matter.

2. You rant about the "ultra-rich" and then vote for their lackey politicians and buy their products and services. You are their slaves. All they do is put "D" for dumb beside the name and you mindlessly vote for them.

I-594 was an anti-gun, anti-civil rights scam funded by six or seven billionaires and you happily did their bidding like good slaves or serfs. Oligarchs command you.

The amazing "Clinton Foundation" has raised TWO billion dollars and used about $131 million of them for any sort of public good. It is the worst scam of a "charity" ever devised and is simply a slush fund for the criminal Clinton family to accept foreign bribes for their evil. And you worship them.

George Soros is a tax cheat who has made billions off his investment in Obama, you adore him and bend to his will like good serfs or peasants the world over.

Costco and Safeway funded the vote to end state run liquor sales and you did their bidding in hopes of cheaper alcohol. In three years Costco will be selling weed in the 5 pound sack for $60 dollars and every dope store in the state will go under. You will vote for it and let yourself get robbed by corporate profiteers.

Mike Bloomberg is a billionaire leftist who demands to regulate soda consumption, gun rights and every other personal habit he feels causes his wage slaves to produce less for his insanely low wages. He throws pennies at imbeciles from the left and they march onto the street and airwaves spouting his wishes.

The "ultra-rich" get richer exploiting the ignorance of the left.

Ask Jeff Immelt, he runs GE and makes $15,000,000 per year selling wind turbines to idiots. He is the head of Obama's "jobs council".

Re: “This Old House

Glad that Kathy Olson Marshall chimed in. The flapping rooftop tarps were when many of us assumed the city would intervene. They were a permanent roof replacement for years and the only weather barrier keeping the house from the elements.

Nice that Charlotte nee Pierce, so removed, has expressed her interest in the situation. So. Charlotte, being so supportive needs to put her money where her mouth is. The now-settled estate should handle the fixing. We all understand you and your sibling care about your childhood home. But restoration requires a crew and a timeline. Otherwise, this is a silly exercise in Dreamville. At the expense of a neighborhood in which you don't live. Everyone else here pays their property taxes and maintains their property. The Pierces should be no exception.

Re: “This Old House

Yes. I lived on the third floor of the apartment home on the south side of the house. Burning garbage, plastic and chemical smoke. The wind whipped up the black plastic and 2x4s so loudly it was impossible to sleep. Rats, mice, raccoons. Henry and his father are perhaps nice people, but consider the dangers...yes, children did climb up the scaffolding. Which was built onto the top of an old VW car, so they could move it. A crazy crazy situation.

Re: “In the Spotlight

This is actually somewhat amusing. A temporary message cast onto a wall is an issue, while a permanently erected billboard advert is not. Oh America. I guess it's supposed all be about licensing. :) PFD says subject to approval. So they'll be cool with Chamber of Commerce approved messages.

Or, why we need spontaneous public art. "Imagery is subject to approval". OMG.

Re: “This Old House

Well since the Pierces have decided to turn comments into a cheering section, I'll add my two cents. I've lived in the neighborhood since the early 80's and neither Charlotte (of Massachusetts) nor Henry III have. Just a few fond memories of the Pierce Manse blight:

Creosote-infused railroad ties being burned for heat in violation of all-manner of law and essentially gassing the rest of us out, prevailing winds. Rotting garbage being chimney-burned regularly once sending at least two adjacent neighbors in search of breathable air to stay w/friends. Resident second-floor raccoons being fed and housed, said raccoons then marauding the neighborhood. One serious chimney fire that looked like it might not be contained. Several others. Scaffolding that ensconced the house for years requiring numerous police calls as kids would climb it at night, house unoccupied. Two-story scaffolding erected atop a car that sat in the alleyway for over ten years, blocking safe fire-escape egress from the adjacent apartments, also historic. Jury-rigged burglar alarms that more than once blared non-stop over weekends while house empty. Vagrants camped in the unsecured garage. Not to mention piles of debris, the visual blight and sadness of it all. Everyone would love to see the place brought back. So either hire a crew and do it Henry, or sell it to someone who can! Talk about pie-in-the-sky thinking. And by the way folks, it's the neighbors who have "hung in there" for a very, very, long time. Despite what Ms. Trautman states to the reporter, she was late to the party. Code enforcement has enabled this situation since complaints started being filed in the early '90's.

Re: “This Old House

Don't you just love it when people move into a neighborhood, assuming that everyone else will conform to THEIR idea of "perfection"?

Seems like the same mentality, which has led to a majority of marriages failing in America, applies to homes too - just toss it out and get a new one.

The neighbors should be volunteering to help, if they're unhappy with progress!

Hang in there Henry! Thanks for sharing this article with me.

Nice paint job. Do you have a building permit for that fence?

Re: “This Old House

I think Henry has done a good job with the house so far. I can't wait to see it when it's done. It's a beautiful house and it would be a shame for it to disappear.

Keep those security cameras on, Henry!

A daunting task with heritage and vision. Your Grandfather would be proud of you. Stay on it and bring back that old, long forgotten charm that homes lack today.

Re: “In the Spotlight

Haven't the megacorporations and the tiny percrentage of ultra-rich who use them to hide their glutinous hoarding of power turned or representative democracy into an auction? Have they not so monopolized the public airwaves, filed then with fluff, fear mongering and lies? If this is so, is it not honorable to leverage the tiny amount of personal sovereignty and Constitutional protection of speech to attempt to be heard and seen above the din of condoned palaver?

Thank you Ziggy and Valery for reminding us all that liberty is a muscle that must be exercised.

Re: “In the Spotlight

Why should you have the right to project your stupidity onto other people's property?

The problem begins with communism and the false idea that somehow you have the right to use property you neither paid for nor asked for permission to use.

The problem ends with the intolerance of leftists. They feel they have a "right" to force their unwanted, unintelligent and ill-informed opinions on others. They cannot tolerate anyone who disagrees with them, nor are they willing to engage in any sort of intelligent discourse. They are unable to cede a point or acknowledge they are wrong in any way.

You hate oil trains because you hate commerce and the creation of wealth. You have no alternative to oil and no ability to develop an alternative to oil. Every form of socialist power takes more power to create than it will ever produce. Every single solar panel ever made requires material to be fined or refined from minerals or petro-chemicals. Every windmill has the same problem. Every mile of power line strung or buried to your windmill requires tons of copper, rubber and thousands of other components not made from hemp.

Why are you wasting electricity? You wasted thousands of kilowatts powering your grow lights and gallons of chemicals growing the weed that made you utterly ignorant. Congrats.

Re: “Bottoms Up

Thank you for the pertinent article.

While Zag'z isn't the closest option to the Downtown AIA we pride ourselves on treating the downtrodden with due dignity and respect. Our store is certified with the Liquor Board as a "Responsible Vender" which entailed special accreditation and a perfect record. Our entire staff has taken the MAST Class 12 training that all bartender & servers are required to receive to prevent service to minors and selling to an obviously intoxicated person.
