Are you kidding?
- Hamas is not firing rockets at Israel?- Hamas has not been firing rockets at Israel from mosque's and residential buildings?- Hamas has recognized Israel's right to exist?- Hamas has not smuggled weapons and war material into Gaza?- Hamas has text messaged and robo-called potential Israeli civilians before firing rockets?
You appear to be a blind anti-semite with a heavy dose of conspiracy theorist mixed in.
On U.S. Helps Destroy Gaza

What a joke.
The rockets fired by Hamas at Israeli civilians (a war crime) for 7 days before Israel took *any* action are destroying Gaza.
Hamas firing from mosque's, schools and residential buildings (also a war crime) is destroying Gaza.
Hamas smuggling weapons into Gaza by sea, land and air the 8 years since Israel left Gaza has destroyed Gaza.
Hamas constantly reminding everyone that they want to destroy Israel and Israel should be wiped out and never recognized as having a right to exist is destroying Gaza.
And also:- Israel calls and text messages before firing missiles to tell civilians to clear out.
Mr. Azevedo's total lack of recognition of the above causes the destruction of Gaza - in his own very special way.

Mr. Silverberg forgot #7Hamas initiated this latest war by firing rockets at civilians (a war crime that is going completely unnoticed by anti-Israel types, including mainstream media and the U.N.) for 7 days before Israel fired even one missile or bullet back at those Hamas launch positions.

To "spacey"Not just a prisoner, a convicted murderer. Unborn living humans are not convicted murderer's. Also my note is in response to a letter in the Indy about a DOG being killed. (As a side note, about 25-40 convicted murderers a year are executed in the U.S. vs. about 2M unborn living humans - so kind of a disparity of use of force thing to kill living humans). I'm sure none of this matters to you of course.
To "shortrees"My note and my concern about unborn living humans being killed has nothing at all to do with religion... no more than your objection to one adult killing another adult and your being against that has to do with religion.Further, you have no idea what I do or how I spend my time - including how I might spend my time as a foster parent or doing other helpful work for children born to women who may have otherwise hired someone to kill them.
To "Ken_Volok"Please be sure to congratulate yourself on consistently being able to hold a pro-abortion rights view with your anti-death penalty view. As you know, if you count backward 1 second at a time, the last time you were both (1) not human and (2) not alive, was just before conception. UCSB's physics department called and they want your amazing "super-position" to be part of a new study on how a human can hold two intensely in-congruent belief systems at the same time.

Thanks Ron for another socialist-democrat agenda driven money-wasting loser-ville effort to erode the New Press.

While Nick Welsh responded to this letter with "You're right", I'll respond that its time to take the Poodle back to anonymous land and pretend we don't know who is writing it. A little more fun that way.

Whoops - Mr. Capello, widely known as a self-serving, upper Eastside garden party, wine glass clinking socialist democrat forgot to mention that his ideas are completely wrong and un-factual and are only expressed by him to serve his own wallet and ego.
It is said that a district system would provide for greater opportunity for minority representation on the City Council. That has not been true in Santa Barbara. There was one Latino elected to the City Council during the 45 years of the ward system and another was appointed to fill out a term. There have been four Latinos and one African American elected to the council during the 46 years of the at-large system. (And 11 women have been elected, including four as mayor.)
In 1968 the residents of the City of Santa Barbara voted to end the then-current ward [district] system in exchange for election at-large of all city councilmembers.
The League of Women Voters, which strongly supported the change away from the ward system, commented:
1. City councilmembers elected at-large rather than from five or six districts or wards, although aware of local problems, are free to make their decisions based on the needs of the entire community.
2. The chances are better for well-qualified candidates — and more of them — to seek office when unhampered by artificial district boundaries.
3. Citizens represented at-large have access to six members of council rather than one.
4. Under the old ward system, a voter cast a ballot for only one councilmember every four years. A city council elected at-large gives each citizen the opportunity to vote for three members every two years.
5. District or ward representation tends to lead to decisions made not on their merits but on the basis of “swapping support” (“You vote for what I want, or I won’t vote for what you want.”)
These points are valid today.
The ward system did not lead to fairer or better representation. When people had their “own” councilmember, that councilmember was quite likely to be concerned over the problems in his or her own district rather than putting them in priority in the context of the community as a whole.

On Thursday an innocent but unknown living Human at 19 weeks of gestation was aborted in Santa Barbara first by injecting lethal drugs into the base of its skull and then using surgical scissors to dismember it inside the womb and then extracting each body part.
Sorry about the homeless dog.

A quick look into both of these characters on the web and it's again clear: illegal immigrants or the children of illegal immigrants.
