MBGA - The sound is supposed to be broadcast through a FM radio in your vehicle.
I was recently speaking to a realtor, he says people are moving out of S.F. and want to move to the suburbs. Vacant housing up there and more people wanting to live here.
Bruce - Where have you been?
The is an old drunk/drug addict who used to live there. He can't seem to stay away. He is the most arrested male in Burlingame. I wondered if he knows the most arrested female in Burlingame? George, meet Shirley. Shirley, this is George.
Burlingame Betty - With high housing prices in Burlingame, I don't think we will keep anyone young around. So, let's P.O. everyone else.
Barking Dod?
Great special about Prop 13 is airing on PBS. It is called "The Last Angry Man" - Check it out.
Willie had a great observation in his last column: The November election will probably turn California an even deeper shade of blue than it already is. And that’s not necessarily a good thing. Democrats now hold 29 seats in the state Senate to Republicans’ 11 seats. With a blue wave heading our way, thanks to the chance to vote President Trump out of office, the spillover effect could raise the Democratic total to 35 Senate seats to just five for the GOP. California is going to be almost literally a one-party state. Democrats may well celebrate. They shouldn’t. For decades, California was governed by a loose combination of moderate Democrats and moderate Republicans. Their mutual need for each other’s votes created a middle ground that kept each party’s more militant wings in check. That’s already gone, with Democrats holding two-thirds supermajorities in both the Senate and Assembly even before the election. The battles are largely between progressive Democrats and moderate Democrats, with progressives challenging the moderates at every turn. That will only intensify with the accelerated disappearance of Republicans. In other words, the Legislature could turn into an expanded version of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Who’s up for that?... ...If there is one thing Democrats do well, it’s eat their own.
Idiots have long been associated with San Francisco politics and apparently they are breeding like crazy. Or is it the indoctrination occuring in public education?
4th grader - Are you unaware of the term "Latinx"? Apparently they want to be considered different from white Europeans.

wtf - I signed up for Nextdoor after hearing about the tree falling in Washington Park. It is incredible what younger people are posting there. If children are our future I am afraid we are in deep doo-doo. For example, one young person posted this bio: "Just wading my way through the field guide of suburban racism that is Burlingame on Nextdoor." Back to topic. Let me point out that Spanish were here after the Ohlone. Then it was the Mexicans. Then it was the Europeans. Many seem to want to forget about the first two and blame everything on the Europeans.

Why don't our suburban cities get together and tell the state to 'pound salt' on housing mandates?

A favorite pass time from 1972 - 1975, 3rd Ave down to Hillsdale and back.
Of course the San Mateo Board of Supervisors endorsed Prop 15. Liberal politicians ALWAYS WANT MORE OF TAXPAYER MONEY. They will never have enough!
Fugit All - So, common sense is never on your radar? You do not care about hungry and homeless children?

Maybe we could introduce Shir to George? These are the two most arrested people in Burlingame.
Joe - Thanks for getting the Crime Stats fixed. Anyone have a picture of Shir?
If you think voting yes on Prop 15 will only affect businesses and not affect you, then think again. If you raise anyone's taxes, you raise everyone's costs. If business expenses go up, what you pay for products or services goes up. And, once politicians get their foot in the door, do you really think they will stop with just business? Politicians, especially Democrats, have an insatiable need for more of your money. Prop 13 was the greatest protection ever passed to help taxpayers. When I moved into my home 30+ years ago, I was paying over $3,500 a year in property taxes, while my neighbor was paying $900 year. Now I am paying $6,800 a year and I have multiple neighbors paying over $32,000 a year! For you younger people, who will be paying a high amount in the beginning, remember it can only go up 2% a year, under Prop 13. This is something you can budget for.
What would happen if poor people were to act responsibly and STOP having children? If you cannot afford to house, feed, clothe and buy a new backpack for your child each year (without free-loading off the taxpayer), just do NOT have children. You would be doing the world a favor!

We need to make voters aware that people like Weiner and Dumdum want to ruin our peninsula cities. We all chose to move to a SUBURBAN area and they want to TAKE that away from us. Please stop electing Weiner, who wants to INFLICT his ideas on us. And never elect Dumdum because he also wants in INFLICT his ideas on us. We do not want high density housing in OUR suburbs!

I offered, with a previous owner, to split the cost, but she decided she liked the tree. In my opinion there is nothing attractive about this tree. (I have had four additional trees planted on my property since moving in). There is a different owner now. He is willing to allow the tree to be removed. One previous arborist, who is now retired, told me the tree was dangerous and gave a vocal o.k. to allow the tree to be removed. I have requested the current arborist meet me onsite to discuss, but that has not happened. One would think that with all of the fires going on in the state and with the tree at Washington Park killing and injuring people that the City of Burlingame and/or PG&E would want this safety hazard eliminated?

A branch of a neighbors tree fell across my front yard one day, as I was on my porch, unlocking the front door. This particular tree has dropped three branches since I have lived here. The last branch took out the high voltage power lines. I have attempted to get PG&E and/or the city to declare it a nuisance, but have no luck. Any suggestions would welcomed.

Greasy Gavin has done it again. He declares California a 'Sanctuary State'. Did you get a chance to vote on that? He declares a moratorium on executions. Did you vote on that? NOT the moratorium, but THE PEOPLE did vote for the death penalty. No he pronounces no more gasoline powered cars by 2035. WHO DOES HE THINK HE IS? I recently found this article, that I want to share: “If you are a liberal who can’t stand Trump, and cannot possibly fathom why anyone would ever vote for him, let me fill you in. It’s not that we love Donald Trump so much. It’s that we can’t stand you. And we will do whatever it takes — even if that means electing a rude, obnoxious, unpredictable, narcissist (your words not ours) to the office of President of the United States — because the thing we find more dangerous to this nation than Donald Trump is YOU. How is that possible you might ask? Well, you have done everything in your power to destroy our country. From tearing down the police, to tearing down our history, to tearing down our borders. From systematically destroying our schools and brainwashing our kids into believing socialism is the answer to anything (despite being an unmitigated failure everywhere), while demonizing religion and faith, and glorifying abortion, violence, and thug culture. From calling us racists every time we expect everyone of any skin color to follow our laws equally to gaslighting us about 52 genders, polyamory, grown men in dresses sharing public locker rooms with little girls, and normalize the sexualization of young children, you simultaneously ridicule us for having the audacity to wish someone a “Merry Christmas” or hang a flag on the 4th of July, stand for the national anthem, or (horror of horrors) don a MAGA hat in public. So much for your “tolerance.” (See why we think you are just hypocrites??) We’re also not interested in the fact that you think you can unilaterally decide that 250 years of the right-to-bear-arms against a tyrannical or ineffective government should be abolished because you can’t get the violence in the cities you manage under control. That free-speech should be tossed out the window, and that those who disagree with your opinions are fair game for public harassment or doxing. That spoiled children with nose-rings and tats who still live off their parent’s dime should be allowed to destroy cities and peoples livelihoods without repercussions. That chaos, and lawlessness, and disrespect for authority should be the norm. This is your agenda. And you wonder why we find you more dangerous than Donald Trump? Your narrative is a constant drone of oppressor/oppressed race-baiting intended to divide the country in as many ways as you possibly can. You love to sell “victim-hood” to people of color every chance you get because it’s such an easy sell, compared to actually teaching people to stand on their own two feet and take personal responsibility for their own lives and their own communities and their own futures. But you won’t do that, you will never do that, because then you will lose control over people of color. They might actually start thinking for themselves, God forbid! This is why we will vote for Donald Trump. Not because he is the most charming character on the block. Not because he is the most polite politician to have ever graced the oval office. Not because he is the most palatable choice, or because we love his moral character or because the man never lies, but because we are sick to death of you and all of the destructive crap you are doing to this once beautiful and relatively safe country. Your ineffective and completely dysfunctional liberal “leadership”(?) has literally destroyed our most beautiful cities, our public education system, and done it’s damndest to rip faith out of people’s lives. However bad Donald Trump may be, and he is far from perfect, every day we look at you and feel that no matter what Donald Trump says or does there is no possible way he could be any worse for our country than you people are. We are sick to death of your stupid, destructive, ignorant, and intolerant behavior and beliefs — parading as “wokeness.” We are beyond sick of your hypocrisy and B.S. We are fed up with your disrespectful divisiveness and constant unrelenting harping and whining and complaining (while you live in the most privileged nation in the world), while making literally zero contributions of anything positive to our society. Your entire focus is on ripping things down, never ever building anything up. Think about that as there is something fundamentally very wrong in the psychology of people who choose destruction as their primary modus operandi. When Donald J Trump is re-elected, don’t blame us, look in the mirror and blame yourselves. Because you are the ones that are responsible for the rise of Donald Trump. You are the ones who have created this "monster" that you so despise, by your very actions. By your refusal to respect your fellow Americans, and the things that are important to us. You have made fun of the “fly-over states,” the people who “cling to their guns and religion,” the middle class factory workers and coal miners and underprivileged rural populations that you dismissively call “yahoos” and “deplorables.” You have mocked our faith and our religion. You have mocked our values and our patriotism. You have trampled our flag and insulted our veterans and treated our first responders with contempt and hatred. You have made environmentalism your religion, while trashing every city you have taken responsibility for. You scream from the rooftops about “global warming” and a “green new deal” while allowing tens of thousands of homeless people to cover your streets in literal sh!t and garbage and needles and plastic waste without doing a single thing to help them or solve the environmental crisis your failed social policies are creating. But we’re supposed to put YOU in charge of the environment while gutting our entire economy to institute this plan when you can’t even clean up a single city?? You complain — endlessly — yet have failed to solve a single social problem anywhere. In fact, all you have done is create more of them. We’ve had enough. We are tired of quietly sitting by and being the “silent” majority. So don’t be surprised when the day comes when we finally respond. And trust me it’s coming, sooner than you might think. And also trust me when I say it won’t be pretty. Get ready. When Donald Trump is re-elected it will be because you and your “comrades” have chosen to trash the police, harass law-abiding citizens, and go on rampages destroying public property that we have all paid for and you have zero respect for. When Donald Trump is re-elected it will be because we are sick of your complete and utter nonsense and destruction. How does it feel to know that half of this country finds you FAR more despicable than Donald J. Trump, the man you consider to be the anti-Christ? Let that sink in. We consider you to be more despicable, more dangerous, more stupid, and more narcissistic than Donald Trump. Maybe allow yourself a few seconds of self-reflection to let that sink in. This election isn’t about Donald Trump vs. Joe Biden. This is about Donald Trump vs YOU. So if on the morning of November 4 (or more likely January 19, by the time the Supreme Court will weigh in on the mail-in ballot fiasco that we are headed towards), and Donald J. Trump is reelected? The only people you have to blame is the left-wing media drones and yourselves. You did this. Yep you.”
Perhaps some of the city council members are unclear on why they are there. 1) It is NOT your job to ban anything that is legal. 2) It is NOT your job to tell businesses how much they must pay employees. 3) It is NOT your job to tell landlords what they can charge for rent. Please concentrate your efforts on keeping Burlingame a great place to live.
Our current rain year ending October 1 has SFO getting 9.17 inches of water. Our normal is 20.65. I consider it a drought year.
