I'm glad I don't live in Mountain View anymore. Too scary turning MV to left like "Che's stuffs" soon.

Mountain View is becoming more progressive! Wow I can't wait! Let's look to the biggest, and nearest, example for how we'll end up--San Francisco. We'll have a homeless person standing on every street corner, fighting for space, next to the current day laborers we have now. We'll have more Marijuana dispensaries than Starbucks coffee houses. We'll have even more neighborhood welfare "projects" like the huge existing ones on Shoreline Blvd., Tyrella Ave. and the newest one on San Antonio Circle. City employees will be able to change their sex organs on the tax payer's dollar. We'll have even more programs to assist fugitives (illegal aliens) with housing, schooling and medical care. We'll have ultra tolerance for any behavior like drug abuse/trafficking, slave trafficking (aka prostitution) and other aberrant life styles. Mountain View will be a great place to raise a family!

Well, at least by supporting illegal immigrants, no I mean embracing them and their diversity, at least we are perpetuating all the criminals and bottom feeders that profit the illegal immigrant trade and exploit those who seek to come to Mountain View through hell and high water. Oh wait, that line of argument would mean I would have to stop smoking this joint, since I don't want to support the drug cartels. Hmm... choices... what the hec, as long as I'm comfortable and benefiting from cheap labor for my house cleaning, gardening, and day care, why should I complain. Wink, wink.
