How do we know that Michaels, like Target before it, are not doing this themselves to get everyoneRead More to give up what little freedom we have left? Maybe News12 will investigate? No, that's right... News12 is just a glorified police blotter.

Just so everyone knows, chip and pin would not prevent a breach like this, it would just make itRead More difficult to reproduce a physical card. The real answer is prevent breaches like this is uninterrupted end to end encryption between the PED/swipe and the processor. So many retailers allow the credit card data to flow within their respective networks to be decrypt/re-encrypt 1 or more times paving way to the methods used by malicious folks to harvest that data while in the clear, such as memory scrapers.

It is becoming obvious that it is time to cut up credit cards and go to cash.

With prices rising in all industries, I call it the disease of liberal Democrats! And it is theRead More disease that will wipe out civilization!

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

I have been a fan of Drakes Bay oysters for more than half of their now-expired lease. I would loveRead More to think that their continued operation could be compatible with the health of the ocean and the larger ecosystem. Ascertaining the feasibility of this is sufficiently complex that I have spent several hours studying various perspectives, and I have friends with varied positions. Just because the "wise use" extremists funded by Dupont, Chevron, Exxon, the NRA, etc., have taken on this case does not nullify the possible validity of the Lunnys' claims, but it probably does push the polarization of this issue, as evidenced in the comments above. There is a good deal more to consider than arguing that the purpose of the sea is to feed humans, whose food cannot grow at all without a healthy ocean ecosystem. The ecology is not shoddy, not has it been conducted from high towers in the USSR. Rigorous study, thinking and informed debate are critical to this issue and essential to government of, by and for the People. In this case the democratic process has brought this into the courts, where I hope and expect the Lunnys will continue to get a full and fair hearing, despite the fact that they want to get out of complying with a contract from which they have benefitted tremendously on public lands for decades, with a number of mitigated and unmitigated direct costs to the health of Drakes Bay.

What is the value of labeling the Lunny's appeal to the Supreme Court "a last ditch move"?Read More To my mind, "last ditch" has a negative connotation. One function of the Supreme Court is to provide a final consideration of the facts. Certainly, there have been many occasions when the Supreme Court's decision reversed lower court decisions. No one denigrates the Court's decision just because it came at the end of the road. I suspect that Ms. Trailer will applaud the Supreme Court if it agrees that the Lunny's must go. As for the Lunny's using "desperate arguments," what is the point of someone not on the court labeling the arguments as "desperate"? Does that make the arguments less compelling? I feel that language like that stirs the pot. It does not contribute to healing the badly wounded community. Much better, I think, to stick to the facts ("desperate" is a judgment, not a fact) or simply wait for the Court to decide. I believe the time has come for us to use our rhetoric to build bridges, not to continue the war.

They will do well in Vacaville. Add Buckhorn to a long list of businesses Vacaville has thatRead More "we" don't: Lowes, Nugget, BJ's, BWW, Best Buy, Costco, SAMs club. These are all arguably businesses that improve quality of life for average people. Come to think of it Vacaville is sort of a upper middle class Walnut Creek!

I find it interesting (yet not surprising) that the restaurant is moving from Napa (BayRead More Area-leaning) to Vacaville (Sacramento-leaning). But then again corporate chain restaurants and big box stores seem to thrive in the Vacaville suburban sprawl.
