Oh wait, apparently being a moron is a prerequisite
BERKELEY, Calif. — Berkeley, California, has adopted an ordinance to replace some terms with gender-neutral words in the city code.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports Wednesday that “she” and “he” will be replaced by “they.” The words “manpower” and “manhole” will become “workforce” and “maintenance hole.”
The City Council on Tuesday unanimously passed the measure to replace more than two dozen commonly used terms. There will be no more “craftsmen” in city code, only “craftspeople” or “artisans.”
Good freaking grief! manholes are now maintenance holes? And what, that ends crime? Poverty? No, it does nothing but make idiots feel better Idiots like Rigel Robinson. Rigel, what sick bastard names their kid Rigel?
Name: Rigel Robinson, 22, student government officer (District 7)
What is the main reason you are running? Berkeley needs bold, progressive leadership to tackle our most pressing issues. Whoever is elected to represent District 7 will need to balance the needs of the city and the campus, students and neighbors. I’m running for City Council because I have been doing exactly that. During my four years at the University of California, Berkeley, I’ve been fighting to elevate student narratives at every level of government — and today, I’m running for Berkeley City Council because it’s time for students to have a seat at the table.
Blah, blah, blah Here is more nonsense from Rigel, and other assorted knuckle draggers who have no clue
In recent weeks, the League of Women Voters of Berkeley, Albany, Emeryville got all the Berkeley City Council candidates onstage to answer questions in a speedy round-robin. For District 7, that meant Ces Rosales, Rigel Robinson and Aidan Hill were on the mic. Notably missing from the stage was sitting District 7 Councilman Kriss Worthington, who is stepping down from the job after more than two decades, leaving an open seat.
Candidates each had one minute to answer questions on a range of topics, from housing and crime to homelessness and racial equity. The event took place at Berkeley City College on Sept. 19.
The first question for the group focused on public safety, and what the candidates might do to address rising crime in Berkeley.
Ok, the question is how to reduce crime. So, how would these mental midgets respond?
Hill pledged, first and foremost, to “make sure that everyone in our city has adequate nutrition,” including plant-based diets and access to water. Hill said Berkeley needs to ensure that the city isn’t simply criminalizing the poorest and most at-risk. Hill said tiny houses and other pathways to housing would be potential solutions to the question of rising crime. The city’s approach to policing — and institutions “that profit off of its criminalization” — must also be rethought, Hill added.
Soooo, give criminals water and a plant-based diet? Then give them tiny houses? And, of course blame police for like enforcing laws! Then there is this nugget of “brilliance”
Robinson said expanding late-night transit options and improving lighting would help people in the neighborhood. He said he’d like to push PG&E to do more with lighting, and called it “unacceptable” that students are feeling increasingly unsafe — and unwilling — to walk between home and campus.
Hmmm, maybe it is the criminals who make the students feel “unsafe”? Maybe enforcing laws would help get stop the criminals?
