Mayor The majority of the San Leandro Citizens do not support this! Rainbow flag in our city Hall?! You did OK work in San Leandro. But this! Start forcing Gay's in our city. We have already excepted it. But quit trying to force this down our throats! What next Mayor? Our you going to force schools to distribute Tom and Dick children books for our elementary schools to teach how Tom and Dick are a wonderful couple. And it's OK for that?
Try to fix the crime Mayor! Let's see some results! Don't be a Diggy Mayor like one in Oakland. Make people think twice when thinking of doing a crime in San Leandro! Make stiffer laws that will have the news media outlets talk how harsh your penalties are if found doing a crime here in San Leandro. Like your doing with this Gay Flag crap!

I agree.

And foreign flags should NEVER be flown on the same pole or staff as the American flag.

No Wait a minute! How bout the Mexican Flag? I say we should put that flag up as well! To bad if you don't like it. It's what I feel about it!
Oh and please start learning to speak Spanish. I have relives coming in. They heard that Obama is going to have a clear path to citizenship. So there coming in. And don't feel it's right for them to suffer and learn English.

The Mexican Flag is just that .... the Flag of another NATION.

The rainbow flag is just one symbol of PLURALISM.

JohnnyO, you are showing improvement...sort of. At least you spelled mayor correctly this time. Now for lesson number two on how to write coherently: "start forcing gays in our city"????? What does that mean?
"Our you going to force schools....." I think you are trying to ask "are" not "our." Now I'm not sure how knowledgeable about how OUR judicial system works. The mayor does not set the penalties, nor does the mayor try and or convict. That is up to the legislature and the District Attorney. Keep trying, I see improvement, not much, but some. Have a nice day sweetheart :)

I'm not so sure it's a good idea to fly the rainbow flag there. What it will accomplish is fueling hatred. Just like people flying the confederate flag down south. Best thing they should do is go into the hearings without making it a public display to get attention. Go for what you're there for. People would respect you a lot more.

This is the MOST truthful statement I've ever read by a homosexual on these boards. One thing though, the word California needs to be replaced with America.

It maybe truthful for him, but that is not how most Gays feel, certainly not me. The goal for most of us, would be full equal rights for all gay, lesbian and transgendered. Not even acceptance is required, just equality for all!

It disturbs me that gays feel they are treated like 2nd class citizens, I mean, who the heck promoted them to 2nd class status?!?!
