The strangest thing about Trump supporters is their refusal to admit they're racist, among other anti-people beliefs. I mean, if you support a racist, brag about supporting that racist, and say racist things yourself, than why not admit you are a racist?!! I think it's called cowardice an…

This is infuriating and scary. Religion is a private and individual matter, not something the government should promote. I hope the ACLU takes the Kern Country Sheriff's Department to court for this breach of our US constitutional rights of keeping church and state separate. And this, In …

Excuse me! You are wrong. There are packs of dogs roaming around Bakersfield, a lot of them. And who knows, until it's too late, if they're capable of attacking a person. What a stupid uninformed statement, or just a blatant lie. It infuriates me to read such arrogant BS because it's dang…

It's appalling how people will kiss the butt of whomever they see as the authoritarian figure. Be it priest or Vons cashier or the POTUS. .They are incapable or unwilling to think objectively and intelligently and instead, just mindlessly continue think the same thing, while victims fall …

When I hear a politician or a government official repeat cliches like, "just one of our tools in our tool chest," I feel both angry and hopeless because those types of easy throw-away cliches usually means that that person is not serious about actually doing what they intimate they intend…

The real question is, why isn't there enough money to fund the Sheriff's Department? What is that money going to instead? If, as Sheriff Youngblood says, his department is shrinking and will continue to do so, who will be left to protect the communities? We can't let the police presence s…
