Don't worry about a lien--it just means you won't be able to sell your house. It doesn't mean youRead More will be evicted from it...That takes YEARS. Once we beleaguered taxpayers start our revolt and withhold property taxes? it will be a matter of months before the County defaults, rescinding all Union contracts with our aristocratic public employees, RETROACTIVELY (including pensions). Insolvency is victory. Cut off the funds and these tyrants will be brought to their knees. Later we will have all liens thrown out. We are only withholding taxes until the government steps down. We will pay our taxes once we are truly represented.

Give it to everyone that asks for it so the system will quickly default. Pay no taxes..... “ARead More democracy cannot exist as a permanent form of government. It can only exist until the people discover they can vote themselves largess out of the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the canidate promising the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result that democracy always collapses over a loose fiscal policy--to be followed by a dictatorship.” ― Alexander Fraser Tytler

Plain and simple - the government is controlled by the Financial interests and corporations, who useRead More it to make laws funnelling money upward from the middle class and poor. The middle class and poor respond by becoming more and more socialistic to even out the increasing inequality and protect their place in society. The financial interests respond by using the government to mandate the money flow upward and control the work force to maintain their profits, tightening the screws to increase the wealth and subjugate the workers into a voiceless class. This is the basis of Fascism and it is occurring in our country while political parties keep your attention with endless battles which somehow never result in benefit to those they are elected to represent, but only enrich the financial interests and wealthy further.

Hello Paul G., what field did you choose for your MASC. Its good to know when you are conversingRead More with an educated person. My point on the RSO comm system is basically the excessive cost to the taxpayer. If you look at the money and cost over runs on the "old" system and all the extra money to make a new "UHF" system work, you will see its just another money pit. The extra repeater sites are due to physics of the 800mhz spectrum. It is basically line of sight. So to get the required coverage based on P25 digital degrade, encryption degrade and line of sight of attenuation of 110db per mile, yes, the county needs to spend millions more of taxpayer dollars to put up more and more repeaters to get back to the coverage of the old system. Just like the "OLD" system they poured millions to "fix", they will be doing the same thing with the "new" system. Just look at the cost over runs already spent on the "NEW" system. History repeats itself in the County of Riverside.

The myth that these countries can't produce quality products is rooted in the past - foreign countries now have the same technology and production machinery we have and the biggest threat to American made products is having to compete with equal or better quality products at lower prices due to lower production costs.

Hate to say it Nero Goth, but just because you ignore the facts of what occurred doesn't mean thatRead More it didn't happen the way you have been TAUGHT! .....Do yourself a favor and do some serious homework with an open mind. Look up the Project for the New American Century. If you refer to any and all documentation prior to 9/11/2001 you will see that the attacks of 9/11 have been spelled out by the parties stated. Also examine building seven and the insurance claims on the twin towers and building 7. There is a long list of things for you to seriously examine that you seem to be ignorant of. I can go on and on about FACTS surrounding the many issues of our American history that, if examined with a logical mind are really, undeniable. Remember, it is only a theory if it can't be proven. Unfortunately, I know of too many facts that have been withheld to promote your blind acceptance of the governments narrative of events. Time to wake you up. If you take an honest moment to watch and read a few pieces of work, I will open your eyes to a whole different view of the government you apparently still believe in and trust. No one who loves this country likes what they see but they need to be aware and not just accept what they see through the glasses you have been sold.

@Nero Goth re: ONIZUKA AFB, I JUST NOTICED YOUR COMMENT. WE WERE BOTH THERE AT THE SAME TIME, ATRead More LEAST FOR A FEW YEARS. I will comment on your comments soon. I must go to bed. I was at the ceremony renaming it to Onizuka AFB, and for a some years past the Loma Prieta Earthquake. Months later they discovered many fractures in the steel framework in the major building itself. I was told that about 12 more seconds of swaying would have caused the main building to collapse. I was still at work several stories up. ~~~~~~ all the various departments had majors or LT COL in charge. But there were five full COL there. One was in charge of the whole facility, but was not in charge of certain tenant organizations. ~~~~~ Due to what I was doing I met some of them and was introduced to several 2 and 3 star generals when they visited. But that was because of what I was doing and where I sat. Most of the hundreds of other Lockheed personnel there were in a higher pay grade but I fit into a slot where I was occasionally seen talking with the top brass in the front office, and most of them never even saw a general even though they worked there for years. ~~~~~ It was overall an interesting experience to work there, and I felt I was doing some worth while work for my country's security. Were you there when .....? (Another big event). I have to leave now, but intend to comment on this again.

@SA Later on at Onizuka AFB, the AF put up name signs on the freeway and invited local city councilRead More members from Mt View, Sunnyvale.and San Jose to some guided tours. Of course they were not shown any secrets. There was even a "family day" when employees could bring their family members to go inside the building and see some representative exhibits. Nearly all the various suites off the main hall were not open for tours or even family allowed to visit on that one day. I think one operations suite was open, the one that communicated with the space shuttle. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ They did not want war protesters picketing by the fence or the gate because some terrorists could pretend they were just demonstrators and then throw hand grenades at the people at the gate off or set off personal bombs. ~~~~~ TO prevent a coordinated attack at multiple AF installations there was a warning communication system that IF ANY DEMONSTRATES APPEARED AT ANY of the secure installation, ALL SUCH INSTALLATIONS WOULD IMMEDIATELY BE PLACED ON HIGH SECURITY ALERT STATUS.
