A lot of it has to do with ... flight from the East Bay to the Tri-Valley. Due to the political "leadership" of poverty ... and catering to the entitlement class, the East Bay's demographics are rapidly changing increasing crime, lowering school achievement, and lowering property values. With historic low interest rates and some of the best prices in the past 8 years, now is the time to head for greener ... pastures.

Tell it like it is William Teller! We need to intice more upstanding white folk into our basket of freedom here in Ptown. If not, low income housing and the scowndrels it brings will expand unabated. (I'm using this name because some body else is now using my real name. What ever happened to the days when a self respecting half white half Mexican could get on this sight and wacks eloquent?)

Genuine American-I have no issue with Latino's-most of which are hard working and have strong family values-even if the economic "value" they provide is more than offset by the social services (e.g, my tax dollars) they consume. I have no problem with the curry, dim sum and kabob eating crowd who value hard work and education who are moving in. What I do have a problem with is a generational entitlement class of "gibs me dat" who add no economic value and destroy everything in their path including infrastructure, culture and people's lives. The growth of this class in our neighboring East Bay cities is evident, and our current governor would like to spread this to the tri-valley when people are moving in droves to get away from it. Vaya con Dios y vaya con gringos, me amigo!
