Rep. Pete Stark hates “stupid” questions

his own “tough” interviews [Video]

California East Bay Rep. Pete Stark, a 20-term Democrat facing the toughest race of his career, refuses to debate his Democratic opponent Eric Swalwell, calls press questions “stupid,” and was a no-show at a senior voter candidates’ forum this week in his CD-15 district. And now there’s this: he’s producing his own campaign “news” videos, showing him taking “tough” questions — from his staff. In the video series called “Pete Stark taking the tough questions,” the often-inaccessble Congressman is shown serenely conversing in a library setting, where he’s apparently able to shield himself from pesky

Comments:
An 81-year-old Dem Congressman can't respond to a kid less than half his age?
Maybe the reason Nancy Pelosi is so shrill is that her caucus is populated with zeroes like Stark!

Headline corrected. Poster, please note that you can split a long headline more than ONCE. Please keep this as a template. LCom Staff.

Stark is a vile individual. He was my congressrat for many years until the recent census. Now I`m represented by Mike Honda.

Please kill me.....

Dem. Stark trying to use the "available" information by not being available in-person.

Sort of what Obama did in 2008 by giving lots of teleconferences where he could control the message, and not be bothered with follow-up questions.

The high gasoline prices in Cali are result of folks like Stark who've ignored what makes an economy run, and ignored fact that Cali population has nearly 38 million people now but hasn't built a new refinery in over 45 years.

#1, I sympathize. I'm still stuck with Stark as my Congresscritter.

Stark is very stupid (makes Nancy Pelosi look like a rocket scientist) and he is very vile. But he is more vile than stupid. That's saying a lot.

Denali downsized: New data show
North America´s tallest peak 83 feet shorter

The Great One has been downsized. Denali, North America’s tallest peak, is not quite as tall as once thought, but it’s still the tallest peak on the continent. Updated radar mapping conducted in 2012 put the Mount McKinley at 20,237 feet rather than 20,320 feet, Alaska Lt. Gov. Mead Treadwell told the annual symposium of the International Map Collectors’ Society held in Fairbanks this week.

Fairbanks - The rusty 55-gallon barrels sit on the tundra near Chandler Lake in the middle of the Brooks Range like a caribou herd scattered across the landscape, surrounded by rugged, snow-capped 6,000- and 7,000-foot-high peaks. Unlike caribou, rusty barrels don’t feed the people of Anaktuvuk Pass, and they aren’t nearly as nice to look at, which is why residents in the village in the Brooks Range 250 miles northeast of Fairbanks want them gone. The fuel drums, an estimated 130 of them, have been sitting there for more than 50 years, left by the Department of Defense

Improperly assigned teachers a problem

Public schools across California have assigned thousands of teachers to classes without the proper credentials or legal authorization, a persistent problem that state and local education officials blame on mismanagement, budget shortages and a limited pool of qualified specialists. Untrained teachers have been assigned to a variety of difficult classes, including those filled with English-language learners and others with special intellectual and physical needs. In many cases, these teachers lack training in a particular subject that they´ve been assigned to teach, such as English or math.

Nude Aid benefit

San Francisco Supervisor Scott Wiener´s ban on baring it all in San Francisco notwithstanding, Nude Aid, a benefit for the Center for Sex and Culture, brought more than 30 artists and a dozen naked and fetish-clad models together for a pre-Valentine´s Day sketch session. Visitors hoping for an erotic thrill by seeing models in the buff got a different surprise (although the man with his face painted purple in the mode of a Mexican wrestling mask was an unexpected treat). The real voyeurism was peering over the shoulders of the artists as they worked

A former offensive tackle for the San Francisco 49ers and Oakland Raiders faces charges that he assaulted his boyfriend at a Menlo Park restaurant after an argument involving soy sauce and underpants, San Mateo County prosecutors said Monday. Kwame Harris, 30, became angry with Dimitri Geier, 36, in August 2012 at Su Hong restaurant on Menlo Avenue, according to court documents. The ex-football player lashed out when Geier tried to put soy sauce on Harris´ rice, said Al Serrato, a San Mateo County prosecutor. "Basically they're having dinner together

Many people turn to knitting as a means of stress reduction, and Harmeet Dhillon of San Francisco was no exception when she took up the hobby during college in 1986. Dhillon, however, has taken her interest in textiles a step or two further than most recreational knitters. In 2012, she founded Sea Ranch Woolworks,(Snip) She was born in rural India and is now as an award-winning trial attorney at the helm of her own firm, chairwoman of the Republican Party of San Francisco and a candidate for vice chair of the California Republican Party.

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

GREENSBORO, Ga. — Golf holes the size of pizzas. Soccer balls on the back nine. A mulligan on every hole. These are some of the measures — some would say gimmicks — that golf courses across the country have experimented with to stop people from quitting the game. Golf has always reveled in its standards and rich tradition. But increasingly a victim of its own image and hidebound ways, golf has lost five million players in the last decade, according to the National Golf Foundation, with 20 percent of the existing 25 million golfers apt to quit in the next few years. People under 35 have especially spurned the game, saying it takes too

   

 



 
Harry Reid calls dissident Nevada ranchers

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said Thursday that a family of dissident ranchers and their supporters in his home state of Nevada are ´domestic terrorists,´ citing this week´s standoff with the federal government´s Bureau of Land Management. Cliven Bundy has refused to pay grazing fees for land where his hundreds of cattle roam every day. The land is owned by the federal government, which says he owes more than $1 million. Bundy, however, insists that since his family has been using the land since the 1870s, Uncle Sam can´t collect the grazing fees. A tense standoff developed this week after

Hi, everybody. For millions of Americans, this time of year holds great meaning. Earlier this week, we hosted a Passover Seder at the White House, and joined Jewish families around the world in their re-tellings of the story of the Exodus and the victory of faith over oppression. And this Sunday, Michelle, Malia, Sasha, and I will join our fellow Christians around the world in celebrating the Resurrection of Christ, the salvation he offered the world, and the hope that comes with the Easter season. These holy days have their roots in miracles that took place long ago. And yet, they still inspire us, guide us, and strengthen us today. They remind us of our

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like
