When I was young, I practically lived in the Woods branch library during the long, hot, boring summers here. Not to be too melodramatic, but I remain convinced to this day, that going on adventures in books in an air conditioned place surrounded by caring adults and fellow bookworms, saved my life. A few of my friends chose alternate adventures outside in the real world and are still paying for it today.
Funding cuts to libraries, the arts, and health care and research are a miniscule amount in the overall budget, but have a devastatingly huge impact in the lives of ordinary citizans, the ones repubs clearly care nothing about. But the cuts help keep the rabble uneducated and sick, two barriers to knowing what's truly going on and doing something about it. These proposed cuts are not only ill advised and mean, but a means to the end of their bigger picture goal, and must be stoped. Why people continue to cut off their noses to spite their faces is truly beyond me.
These people ARE Americans, dipshit.
You are one ugly person texaz
Tell me again how St Ronnie does this but still remains venerated as the best executive to ever walk the earth, but Obama attempts it and he is a dictator shedding the constitution? Bunch of hypocrites. Maybe if the knuckle dragging buffoons in congress could actually DO SOMETHING, this wouldn't even be an issue.
I agree 100% with Tom, but I also have a problem with the fact that after 10+ years in this country, the criminal in question hasn't assimilated enough to plead his weak case in English. This is another point where I lose sympathy. I highly doubt I could survive 10 years in Mexico using English only. Not sure where he's from, just using Mexico as a for instance.
In other words if you want to stay, make a goddamn effort to learn the language as an item of good faith.
