Trailsman commented on Table tennis is good for you

So, Dan, and anyone else who might know, are there any places in the Napa Valley to play table tennis?

Considering the minimal ridership on these buses, essentially empty, this bus system is a waste, as it is. Perhaps it would be better to wait (a year or so) for a fleet of Google/Uber self-drive cars which can better fit the needs of the few passengers that these large buses currently carry,…

Trailsman commented on Stop the extreme noise pollution

CCK, we are in complete agreement. When a politician votes against the electorate's overwhelming best interest (on behalf of someone who just stuffed the politician's pockets with cash), then the bum is thrown out of office. Now that's logical.

It is astonishing how sleazy some people can be, but a response to this is simple. Any supervisor that has taken money from the Palmaz family for this obscene proposal then actually votes for it, they're out of Napa politics for good. I think this could be considered a promise from the voter…

Trailsman commented on A lack of economic understanding

A Minimum Wage law is simply a check on corporate greed; a way of pushing back some of the costs to society of providing the workforce corporations benefit from. Through wages directly, or through expensive social programs that you'll be moaning about next, people need enough to live on. And…

Trailsman commented on A lack of economic understanding
