Oh those pesky facts!
1. The wall in Israel has caused suicide bombings to drop 98%. Look it up.
2. Gazan's voted for Hamas, which purposely tries to kill civilians and has spent all aid money for war, not infrastructure or building opportunity for Gazan's
3. Israel pulled 100% out of Gaza years ago and got nothing but shelled and bombed and attacked.
I know all of this is REALLY hard for lib-dems to understand... But try.

Enforce the law.Protect law abiding citizens.Stop enabling and apologizing for criminal behavior.
And nitrogen, your comments are "war on women" since single moms are to be glorified and never described as being weak or unable to raise kids without dads. Si se puede!
Illegal immigrants and their kids - we need a lot more of them.

Civilization, if you want to have one, requires being civil in public. This means: no littering, blocking rights of way, extended loitering, loud or abusive language, public intoxication, drug use, ride/aggressive panhandling.
And guess what: that applies to *everyone* not just the homeless.
As for American capitalism, it has raised the standard of living and helped more people out of poverty and destitution, and provided more beneficial opportunities and financial freedom for more people than any form of economic system ever in the history of the world.

Monopolies - clearly we need more of them - and bigger ones ... Like more and bigger government, Obamacare, etc.
If we just put smart people like MIT professor Jonathan Gruber in charge of the Government (or Cox) we'd all have so much better lives.

Bravo Obama! Way to go!Give relief to law breakers and people here legally; reward them!
After all, we're a nation of cults of personalities and opinions, not laws.Laws passed by citizens and their representatives are actually meaningless - but only to those that disagree with them.
They are not immigrants - they are illegal immigrants. Stop the 1984 Orwellian double speak.

Why would Hannah-Beth Jackson say: "If I’m a person from the community, I can basically behave with relative impunity [in Isla Vista] … It doesn’t seem like there’s much accountability.”?
If someone sexually assaults you, call the police, file a report and gather/provide evidence and an account of what happened. Press charges and give testimony at trial.
Or is this just some Orwellian 1984 thing where lib-dems and out of control feminists want people persecuted without having to involve the police and the legal system based on "he said/she said" stuff?

This is truly incredible!
A "bike sting" that tickets cyclists?How about a bike sting that's really a sting... against the criminal syndicate and druggies that *steal* bikes all over downtown regularly.
That would be a good sting and use of police resources.Set up bikes that are tempting to steal, hide and then nail the low-level guys and give them a plea deal if they rat out the bigger guys in the ring and so on.
Take down criminal activity with stings.

No one is against poor and homeless people.
But we're all (except for you) against:- harrassment/intimidation- illegal activity- blocking the right of way- trash/littering- aggressive panhandling
I know this must be VERY hard for you understand. Good luck figuring it out.

The reliably never-biased Lyz Hoffman makes a great point: if activists could only get more low-information voters to the polls in 2016, their new measure (to be called PP) would pass!
