No wonder I haven't gotten my Tax Refund yet..... All my money is going to pay for illegals to go to school, among other things. When is enough, enough! I am so tired of handing out my hard earned money. The government is making it so easy to sit on your rear-end and get a handout. Our founding fathers would be so proud! NOT!!May 10, 2011
Welcome back Jerry!. I'll look forward to your column every week :)Mar 6, 2011
Leon: If you are going to defend the bright orange food stamp cards, you lean to such an extreme right that you have fallen completely off the deep end of that spectrum. The problem with extreme Republicans is that they want so badly for SOMETHING to be done about an issue (food stamps, immigration, etc.) they're happy that anything is proposed. Instead of "anything" how about we set the bar a little higher and wait for the "sensible thing." Also, if you actually read the Trib editorial, they do acknowledge the fact that Republicans have finally addressed the jobs issue (they even like some of the ideas in the bill). But Cerulean is right... that $538 million from the budget is going to have to come from somewhere in 2014. I hope the incentives actually do stimulate the economy enough to account for that.Feb 20, 2011
Freethinker, the idea of PARENTS helping is all well and good, especially at the younger grade levels. However, the above letter writer is taking honors level courses and is already smarter than 97 percent of the parents out there. I applaud her for her dedication toward education and her desire to learn even more.Feb 4, 2011

Not sure where you get your info Richard, but Prop 14 does, in fact, create a nonpartisan blanket primary election in which the top two vote-getters, regardless of party, advance to the general election. Here's a link from Newsweek sizing up the ramifications of the new law: http://www.newsweek.com/2010/06/09/prop-14-s-winners-and-losers.html#
As for your comparison to Minnesota in 1913... I think politics has changed just a little since then. It's much more partisan now.
People will still know who the Republicans and Democrats and Independents are even in a nonpartisan election.Nov 28, 2010
Did he really just say the white minority should also become bilingual? If I moved to a different country I would be expected to learn their language - not the other way round. We live in AMERICA! Try and remember that!!Nov 18, 2010
What difference does it make if it is FDA approved...it's not being given to him to treat an illness. This is just a poor excuse to delay his sentence.Oct 26, 2010
