    Thank god SFers took the bold, unexpected, and sure-to-yield results step of voting to suggest the impeachment of the president.

    I want to see him go more than most, but what a waste of ballot space.

    Boo Measure H. Being a new homeowner in SF is painful enough already. :-\

    From what the Guardian said, during the Vietnam war a lot of cities and small towns across america passed measures and bills proclaiming they were against the war, etc, as a way to officially log public opinion.

    It just gets our opinion on the public record is all, and just maybe our new Speaker of the House will pay attention and take action.

    Do you think Nancy doesn’t know?

    Do you think anyone doesn’t know what SF thinks about things? ;)

    When Dallas passes the same measure – that’ll be news.

    Oh I think she knows, but this is an official statement of opinion, right? It’s a wee bit more solid than poll numbers or gut feelings.

    But yes, it is ceremonial and ephemeral and causes no real change. I still enjoyed voting for it.
