Re: “Guest Opinion

c-note makes a VERY good point!
"80% of southerners in the 60's opposed civil rights" they were also Democrats.
The Northern Democrats are also the ones who wanted blacks counted as 3/5th of a person, to keep the South from having equal representation.

As for the '64 Civil Rights Act, Rules Committee Chairman and avid segregationist Democrat Howard W. Smith attempted to stop the bill, but President Johnson forced it through, using the “bully pulpit” and “In honor of JFK”. Senator and Klansman Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.) filibustered for 14 hours and 13 minutes opposing the legislation. Because the majority of Republicans were for the bill and so many Southern Democrats were against the bill (the “80%” c-note spoke of), it was claimed that when Johnson signed the bill he said "We have lost the South for a generation."
The Democrat party was the Pro-Slavery Party; their beliefs haven't changed...only the color of the slaves.

But judging by the comments, I don't believe c-note has even read SB 1070. (But neither has lap-lackey Holder or Obama himself.)

Maybe we need to adopted MEXICO'S policy and methods for dealing with Illegals.
If we sealed the Border TIGHT, gave violators 2 years in State prison at actual hard labor, no food stamps, no Welfare, no free education, no healthcare, eliminate the "anchor baby" provision; it wouldn't be long before there would be no need for SB 1070

Re: “Vote Yes Today for Prop 100

I know that my belief in "The money belongs to the one who EARNED it" is out of vogue in Entitlement mentality America. But I believe when what is legally produced, is taken against the will of the producer under threat of force (by force if necessary), to be given to the willingly non-productive recipient class (basically to breed votes) with NOTHING given in return to the producer, but contempt: The producer is a slave. (Yes, a lot of my beliefs are radical; I also believe if you don't pay income tax you shouldn't be allowed to vote. It's amazing how people's "core belief" and spending habits change when it's THEIR money being spent.)

Yes, if the schools are truly as financially destitute as we are being told, just as with an individual or a private endeavor; things must be either cut, or left to the those willing to pay for them. Why do we need "ethnic studies" instead of focusing funding and resources on subjects that are of substantive educational value?

Yes "Sodomite classes". did you question the lack of a need for such classes, or the "to the point" name?

Thank You for your fine discourse, here's hoping those who proved themselves so incompetent with tax money to date, will use this new windfall more wisely.

Re: “Vote Yes Today for Prop 100

"Also, we're not advocating raising taxes on the wealthiest citizens until there is no reason for them to stay here."

But where is that "tipping point"? Yes "the CEO close companies and go overseas where labor is cheaper"...but the people have the same NEEDS.

It appear you support giving to the non-productive at the expense of the productive: How much slavery is really "acceptable"?
What makes "the rich" responsible for the poor Life-choices of the "poor"?
Yes, I understand that there are a tiny percentage of people who are truly poor; and I'm all for helping them. The "poor" that have free housing, food, healthcare and BETTER cell phones, clothes, jewelry and vehicles than I have...I have no sympathy for.

As for education: I say get rid of the illegals, cut taxpayer funded racism classes (aka "Ethnic Studies"), get rid of the Sodomite classes, sports, cut out all that's not reading, writing, math, science and social studies. (I'm sorry, I may be bias, I don't believe in funding "public education": I believe in homeschooling. Homeschooling was good enough to allow my kids to work their way through college and to get their Masters degrees from a University. HEY! Obama claims to have been: a homeless black man, living on the street, with no job, and no income; yet he graduated from Columbia and got a law degree from Harvard...Why can't others do the same? Or even just get a community college degree?)

But while tax rates like in 2006 seem to appeal to you.
It appears that you aren't for returning *Government spending* to the same 2006 level.
Is this correct or am I misunderstanding?

Thank You
