For example, the Weekly has 4 other area and forums. The citizens of all these town have seemed to be able to communicate hot button issues much more civilly than here in Pleasanton.
Also of notice as far as the greater bay and East bay area's, P-Town has the largest number of conservatives.
A while back prior to the election, during and after Obama was elected President, these radical far right conservatives were a minority by far. These days with Hannity, Rush, Pailin, Beck, and others, the NORM in conservatism is EXTREME!
The everyday deceit, fatalist rants, hatred and vile Anti American nature is the norm now.
These folks are feeding into the type of extremism that continues to divide Afghanistan and Iraq. For so long, main stream America condemned
the citizens of these Countries as having such a barbaric radical divide and we are now no better.
We as a Country have fed into the same hostility that we have so much despised and went to war for.
I know plenty of parents that have just about had enough of the attitude and exremism here in Pleasanton. This town has gone so far down hill.
