Firemen/Fireperson used to just "Hangout" waiting for a Fire to happen.
Now, all Firemen/Firepeople are EMT's to.
Maybe a new requirement for Police should be a Phycological Cert. of some kind.


Willie Brown was always a pragmatist.

His latest comments are spot on.

Dunham is an out of touch "self defined elitist".

We desperately need smart police.

No Police would be anarchy, which the likes of Dunham yearn for.

Agree, it is quite interesting how Willie Brown sounds like a rare voice of reason in comparison to the current regime of delusional Democrats in CA. And Bruce Dickinson is a registered Democrat!

Agree Joe. For some unknown reason that boggles my mind, Mike Dunham has a voice in Burlingame. For a guy who is and has been unemployed has contributed absolutely NADA for the betterment of all the residents of Burlingame, I can't understand why his voice matters. He is an over educated nitwit and I would have ZERO problem telling it to his face if I had the opportunity. Go get a job Mike and contribute to your household to support yourself and your wife. All he is now is a house husband with no kids, collecting am unemployment/stimulus check. All his free time lets him troll Twitter with his Socialist cronies.

I guess he want Burlingame to be like his hometown.

This was sent to me. Lot of truth in it...

I Used To Be A Normal Person

As a man, I used to think I was pretty much just a regular person, but I was born white, into a two-parent household which now, whether I like it or not, makes me "Privileged", a racist & responsible for slavery.

I am a fiscal & moral conservative, which by today's standards, makes me a fascist because I plan, budget & support myself.

I went to High School, paid my way thru college, earned a degree, & have always held a job. But I now find out that I am not here because I earned it, but because I was "advantaged”.

I am heterosexual, which according to "gay" folks, now makes me a homophobe.

I am not a Muslim, which now labels me as an infidel.

I believe in the 2nd Amendment, which makes me a defacto member of the "vast NRA gun lobby”

I am older than 60, making me a useless person who doesn't understand Facebook, Instagram or Twitter.

I think & I reason, and I doubt much of what the "main stream" media tells me, which makes me a "Right-wing conspiracy nut”.

I am proud of my heritage & our inclusive American culture, making me a xenophobe.

I believe in hard work, fair play, & fair compensation according to each individual's merits, which today makes me an anti-socialist.

I believe our system guarantees freedom of effort - not freedom of outcome or subsidies which must make me a borderline sociopath.

I believe in the defense & protection of America for & by all citizens, now making me a militant.

I am proud of our flag, what it stands for and the many who died to let it fly, so I stand & salute during our National Anthem - so I must be a racist.

Please help me come to terms with the new me because I'm just not sure who I am anymore!

If all this nonsense wasn't enough to deal with, now I don't even know which restroom to use… and I gotta go more FREQUENTLY!

Probably best to just pee in the street. Crazy Shirley can do so why not everyone else?

Barking Dog - Excellent article!

I also do not understand why anyone would listen to Mike Dumbdumb. He has contributed nothing to our city.

He claims to have moved here because he thinks it is a good place, yet wants to change it?

Let us ALL make sure he NEVER gets appointed or elected to any local office!


Stop buying stuff from China made in their prisons - build prisons here to make that stuff - arrest people that break the law - try them fairly with due process and those that are found guilty go to jail and make those products we would be buying from China.

This would make the police job much easier as those people that cause trouble would think twice and the police would get the satisfaction of knowing they are taking bad people off the street.

Pretty simple, but instead we are doing the exact opposite. Because of that we are going down.

[I've actually written this many times before in a different style with more detail and better construction of the argument but at this point I realize this thinking is so alien to the liberal Democrat population that the scribbles above are about all energy worth expending.]

Excellent read. Spot on. From a Berkeley prof.

John Albright

Do we have a Racism problem with our cops in Bgame?


No but we do have a White Guilt problem with our white council guy and maybe a Brown Guilt problem with our brown council guy.

Barking Dog

I agree JP. Our current mayor has a case of it too.

Probably a copy of this on their home bookshelf from this shill.

An excellent interview with James Lindsay. With the investment of the 3hr interview.
