City of Hayward unions are organizing to convince Hayward voters to change the current elections to November to coincide with the primary elections. They claim to be interested in increasing the number of Hayward voters. This is suspect for various reasons. For example, they give no explanation for the roughly 80% of registered voters who have stopped voting. Also, if they were sincerely interested in increasing voting numbers, they should be supporting an effort to make same day registration a convenience sure to increase voting numbers. Hayward unions have never shown an interest in improving conditions for Hayward residents. How else would you explain one of the highest sales tax rates in California currently being imposed on Hayward residents and businesses? How would you explain the millions of dollars wasted in the police and fire department personnel salaries that should, in stead, be going to improve Hayward schools. Don't be fooled by Hayward unions and associations. Never support their efforts nor their candidates for office at any level.
PS. Why are so few Hayward residents, California residents, and residents of other states voting? They have given up hope of any change for the better for the majority of Americans. The political system is so corrupt helped by major media that it is impossible to elect honest and brave representatives to office at any level.
Is this the worst USA Presidential campaign of all time? Maybe. For the "baby-boomers", there has never been a worst period in US history. Who do you have to thank? The weatlhy few persons, industries (professioinal sports, pay TV), and the media counting on Americans' penchant for voyerism to sell their advertising and earn close to a billion dollars pushing a corrupt system of government. You would have to have burried your head in the sand for many decades not to know the truth of this.
Entertainment in the USA is becoming almost unaffordable by the average person. For instance, the Orpheum Theater in San Francisco charged more than $1000 per ticket for some seats for the August 2015 performance of "Phantom of the Opera". The "cheap seats" were going for over $300.00. It's no wonder why people are boycotting major forms of entertainment like football, baseball, and tennis. It doesn't have to cost so much. Entertainment for the home doesn't have to cost so much. It's all connected. Our advice: look for entertainment, locally, from movies to live performances. You will not only save lots of money, you will help your fellow Americans stand up to the few reaping hundred of millions of dollars at our expense.
Kudos Chase Bank- is now offerring "free checking accounts" to US military veterans with no strings attached. Yes! No minumum balance is required to qualify for this free checking account. Chase Bank located at Southland, Hayward, is the place to go. Do not go to the Chase Bank on Foothill Blvd., though. Their employees do not know about this offer from their bank, as we found out, recently.
How much corporate greed will Americans accept? Wells Fargo Bank was reported to be charging its customers over 300% interest on certain transactions. Planning to invest in a US Bank Certificate of Deposit (CD)? Beware that they will charge as much as an $1800 fee for early termination, as was recently discovered by a Hayward resident. Planning to purchase 2 season tickets to the Warriors? You’ll have to shell out $28,000 as discovered by another Hayward resident and longtime fan who has seen the light and is no longer a season ticket holder. Why would anyone do business with any of the above? Showman, P. T. Barnum said it best: “there is a sucker born every minute”.
What should you do if you witness a member of the police department or fire
department commit a crime, violate an ordinance, or commit an infraction? Start by
reporting your observation to the chief of the department as was recently done by a Hayward resident who saw the driver of Fire Engine #1 run a stop sign. We
should keep members of pubic safety organizations in line because nobody else is,
especially in the City of Hayward.
One business that doesn’t seem to be feeling the effect of any economic “downturn” is that of veternarian. Local vets are charging an arm and a leg for services and at many offices, staff is not very welcoming. If you find a vet that charges reasonable
prices and where the help is courteous, let pet owners know. You will be doing society a favor. We recommend using the SPCA, Oakland, for spay and neutering. The SPCA, Baldwin St., Oakland, also offers veternarian services at much more reasonable prices than local vets.
