Dirk van Ulden commented on Proposition 15 will help fund our schools

Leslie - there is no such a thing as a loophole. The proponents use it to insinuate that we are being cheated. It is a provision of Prop 13 that we voted for, simple as that.

Dirk van Ulden commented on Nero?

Mike is just another patsy for the swamp, aka the Democratic Party. Has anyone noticed the absence of coverage regarding Hunter Biden's multi-million deals that he shared with the Big Guy, his dad. How did Biden end up in a gazillion dollar mansion on Government pay? Where are the Democra…

Dirk van Ulden commented on What would John Kelly say?

All one has to do is look at the situation in NYC where no bail was passed. The murder and assault rates skyrocketed. This whole idea that one can predict the action of a just-released criminal by using a formula is pure folly.

It is sad that we now need to resort to a reply in Spanish. While I am fairly fluent in that language, I see no reason other than being patronizing to address a demographic in Spanish. They are trying to assimilate and speak English. And here comes some idiot who pushes them right back in…

Ms Chard - I am curious as to why you would support her. She came to San Mateo ostensibly because she did not like it where she came from. Now she wants to transform your beautiful city to emulate the less than desirable place that she just departed from. What gives?

Dirk van Ulden commented on Biden’s tax promise

What Biden and Ms Snarky fail to address is that if they are overturning the Trump tax cuts that would also include the $2,000 tax break that young families get for each child. In my book that is a tax increase. Kamela is childless, so what does she know or care.

Dirk van Ulden commented on Changing the future

Mr. Torres, borrowing from Biden, "come on man", you not be voting for Biden but for a snarky, condescending Harris who could not even muster a primary win. Nancy Pelosi has already set this in motion should, heaven forbid, this ticket wins. Biden will be sidelined and we will be stuck wi…

Dirk van Ulden commented on A farewell of sorts

Dear Chris - I am also sorry to see you go. I understand that we all need to move on for whatever reason. As you said, there are others that are picking up the slack and will continue to irk Jorg and the other TDS members. Take care.

Dirk van Ulden commented on Less is more

Taffy - what really happened is that cities and most other government agencies were subject to litigation over plan approvals. So, thanks to the abundance of ambulance chasers. they outsourced that function to limit their liability exposure. The contracted engineers, in turn, had to get p…

Dirk van Ulden commented on Less is more

JME - you may have overlooked the fact that states are responsible for the public health of their residents. The Feds only step in when asked by the respective governors. So, are you blaming Sacramento or Wash. DC? I am not sure where the division takes place that you see, but the states …
