Loon I suspect we are closer than you think... While I register Dem I am not partisan. In fact, unlike you I universally despise both parties but the GOP is fueled by hateful ignorance and woeful misguidance. Their hypocrisy far outweighs that of the Democratic party and since one needs to align with a party that is closer to their core belief, I choose the left. In fact, I am something called a Liberaltarian. A person who believes that the govt is there for the safety and well being of its citizens but it has no place in their daily lives, their homes, their religion- or lack there of, or their business (other than to keep the peace and the playing field level). And as such I believe in universal health care, education, public safety and defense. But not much more... especially not the bloated bureaucracy we have at all levels of Govt.
I suspect that you have some soul searching still to do in order to find your true political party and philosophy... for many things you say contradict yourself. That's OK, its the journey that's important not the declaration. I personally prefer a loud voice to a meek one so I applaud you and the voicing of your opinions, but I dont agree with very many of them.

Keep trying Loon. You dont even know what you are!
But we do...

You're such a cliche Loon, everything you just painted in your attempt to defend your position reeks of intellectual depravity. Keep trying, but you should know that no matter how hard you try, you'll never overcome your lack of raw intellect. Whether its your conspiracy theories or your self proclaimed love for communism, you are an interesting man just not a very bright one...
I am a registered Democrat who mostly votes on the left. I am very liberal when it comes to social issues but as a business owner and an entrepreneur, this issue riles me as these people are living under false pretenses and are by their very nature, cheaters. And cheaters should never, ever be rewarded. Its not my duty to cite the plethora of statistics which contradict your position... you should find those on your own time.
Good luck with that Utopian society! I am sure there are a few islands in the So Pacific you and your friends could buy... but that would require money, and money only exists with the rule of law to uphold its value... Something of which you dont feel a need to respect or regard.

Num1UofAn - what the heck does your comment mean? Its nonsensical.
LoonPT - your point makes no sense either... not only is the influx of 20m illegals a determent to our society, its an affront to our laws and our way of life. The only people who defend it are in fact, illegals and/or relatives of illegals or morons...
Legal immigrants despise these cheaters and Americans offer their empathy by mostly accepting them... neither of which changes the underlying fact that these people willingly broke the law solely for their own financial benefit. A true affront the the warm welcome we provide to legal immigrants the world over who are under duress and need asylum for virtuous reasons... you know Ellis Island and the Statue of Liberty??? But those days are over. The inn is full.
I sure do hope they all return south. But the fact is that we let 20+ million people come in and those 20 million had 40 million babies... and now we have destroyed our labor pool, decimated our education system, overrun our social programs and sent the message that our laws are not necessary if you dont feel that they apply to you...
With people like you in our community, its no wonder our schools are horrible, our prisons filled with the immigrants and their children and our streets littered with the leftovers of insipid and moronic gangs...

Let's be clear. The very foundation that holds our country and society together is at threat here. The respect for the rule of law.
Illegal immigrants have chosen to ignore the laws they "feel" are not fair. They have chosen to break the laws that allow for them to legally immigrate and work in the USA. They are criminals and morally bankrupt individuals who have put their own financial welfare ahead of everyone else...
They do not deserve the respect or the protection of the US and its citizens because they DO NOT RESPECT the US and its citizens.
They chose to break the law for financial gain. To cheat the system and countless others who follow the rules. And as such they deserve nothing but the full wrath of the very laws and people they chose to ignore. Without prejudice.
These people are cheaters who do not deserve any respect or regard. Go home, follow the rules and you will be welcomed with open arms.

The fact that the parents broke the law, ignored the processes and spent years lying to everyone is a crime both morally and criminally. They should pay the price for their actions and be forced to adhere to the law. Which means they leave the USA and go through proper channels to immigrate to our great country. Pay the fees, file the forms and wait. Like everyone else.
These children are victims, at least regarding the ones outlined in this article, are the exact type of immigrant we want and need. I am all for the advancement of their lives. But their parents are criminals who need to reimburse the city, county and state for the costs that they caused all to pay while they ignored the law and cheated the system. For their own selfish desires and wants.
I have NO sympathy for criminals who knowingly, willingly break the law for their own selfish desires. There are literally millions of people waiting to immigrate to the USA for reasons far more important than a larger paycheck.
Illegal is illegal regardless of the merits of their children. The actions of the parents undermine the entire fabric of our country and taught these young people at an early age that laws are only to be respected and followed only when you agree with them... That is wrong on every level.
Make the parents pay. Plain and simple. Either in tuition or in doing the right thing. Follow the law and get in line. Cheating is not moral.

This is outrageous. A single punch and the guy gets 9 years? Travesty if correct. What a ridiculous punishment. This isnt elder abuse, it may have been assault but the fact that the man was 71 has no bearing on the issue.
Our DA is out of hand. This type of sentencing is beyond excessive. People serve less time for murder and rape and even less time for stealing hundreds of thousands from elderly.

The children of illegals learn early on that they do not need to abide by the law or respect it... for they're taught by their parents actions that the law is applicable only when they "feel" that its appropriate.
This is a moral issue and one that illegal immigrants bring upon themselves. And therefore its no wonder that a large portion of their children end up as gang members and criminals, its what they're taught from their parents. To ignore the law, the process and to do as they please. And we teach them that they can by not enforcing the very laws that are here to prevent this moral deprecation.
And this doesn't even begin to touch on the fact that regardless of their reasons for breaking the law, immigrating to the USA by underground channels, they are in fact stealing the very opportunity from people who do follow the law and do wait their turn. People who do have legitimate claims to immigrate, not just because they want more money.
No amnesty, no forgiveness, no special treatment. Go to the back of the line and wait your turn. That is the only way to treat all peoples the same.

If you're here illegally, expect to be treated like the criminal you are...
Illegal immigrants are cheaters. They lie, cheat and steal for their own benefit. They do not benefit our community, our society or our country. They have cheated and deserve no special treatment, in fact, they should be deported and forced to the back of the line.
There are millions of educated, willing people waiting patiently for their turn to come to the USA. These people stole from each of them and they continue to steal from each of us...
Enough is enough. Either follow the rules and the law or face the consequences.

So we have had urban decay on lower State st, Cabrillo and all over the Funk Zone for years...all stemming from the cities ineptitude and gross mismanagement. And these buffoons are sticking their noses into the beehive that is public art? The BAR is the epitome of everything wrong with SB govt.. What a joke.
