The extremist progressive liberal scumbags are great at messaging. They are masters of using theRead More right terms that will influence the greatest number of idiots and morons, in order to enact punishing legislation for one goal: to have power. First, there was "global warming." Next, when the earth was not actually getting hotter, the term morphed into "climate change." Great use of spin, right? After all, the climate is always changing. But if no one notices the change, why not just use the current term du jour of the extremist progressive liberal eco scum, "climate disruption."

Immigration crisis? I think that is a "typo"....didn't you mean "invasion"? IRead More mean basically that is what has happened over the last 30 yrs...we are just sugar coating it to make us feel we are in control of the situation and we are not. But what do we expect Mexican nationals to do? Stay in a country where their whole family may be desimated by gun toting hired guns (paramilitary) in Mexico's? Of course not... we would all run for our lives also. We must use empathy if we are to remain a conscious people outside of whatever our government's actions and shortcomings maybe.....such as creating chaos in a country by sending paramilitary in order to take over the drug cartels...if our country was not full of drug intoxicated victims then Mexico would not have a problem. Now you know why our military has not been deployed to the border....bcause our boys would refuse the mission. So obviously we are relying on paramilitaries to do our dirty work. We should all be appalled at what is happening. Avi

I use to feel the way you did. Personality, the business class and particularly in Orange County hasRead More hired them for jobs for over 30 years. In fact some of the stats by the US Census while lots of conservatives will not agree with is some of the illegal immigrants left Santa Ana and Anaheim since they couldn't find jobs. The Census shows OC aging and Hispanic immigrants tend to make the county younger but OC is now about 37 years old. Hispanic immigrants tend to have more children and bring the average down. The US Census shows a dropped from 2.8 in 2007 to 2.12 now. Granted, there are still lots of illegal immigrants in the OC but at one time they were over 300,000. As for conservatives Texas has almost as bad a problem since business there hired them to do construction and service jobs like dishwashers and fast food. Also, OC kid population has been dropping which is why I think at least some illegals went home or to other parts of California or out of state. The 5 and under population is now onl 6.1 which is slightly below the US average and the under 18 population is about 23.3 also under the national average.. In fact Hispanics were more foreign born as a percentage of the workforce under George W Bush in 2007 when they represent 56 and are now at 49. The only reason I believe that illegal Hispanics are coming and going particularly from Mexico is the birthrate is dropping they tend to have near the 3.0 figure in the US while native born Hispanics are closer to 2.0.

The Central American kids crisis is a law passed under George W Bush because of human trafficking itRead More went to far in the direction of protecting them. On the other hand, Mexico we can just return the kids without having a court hearing that the 2008 act made different for the Central American kids. The hypercracy over many Republicans on immigration allowed companies like here in Orange County and Texas to hire them but pushed border control when probably getting rid of the job magnet a long time ago even under George W Bush's first term would have solved the problem. In Orange County that met not hiring every maid, landscaper, car washer, fast food worker, day labor, low skilled assembly worker usually in garment work or sometimes medical devices or aerospace assembly, and prep cooks. These are just some of the jobs that have been done by illegal immigrants in Orange County the passed 30 years. They entered Santa Ana in the late 1970's and started with simple factory work that is now in Mexico because of NAFTA.

Ms Carullo, I find it interesting that you think that we are "responsible for our ownRead More bodies." Do you see how you contradicted yourself? You are allowing a religious institution to have a say in what you do with your own body. And, yes, if my mother had aborted me, I certainly would not know it because I wouldn't exist. Your question, "Are you sure about that?" makes me wonder about your logic. And no, I do not want to link the Catholic Church with women's reproductive rights--On the contrary--I want the church to stay out of women's rights! Lastly, if you think that wars are caused solely by "money, land and power," and that religion does not factor in, you are more naive that I thought. Pick up a newspaper and see what is going on the Middle East between the Israelis and Palestinians. Yes, desire for land is part of it, but it all harks back to religion, interpretation of the bible, etc.
Etaoin July 13, 2014 at 08:01 pm
You can continue to deny that the clinics provide far more non-abortion services than abortions, butRead More that just proves you're unwillingness to face facts to twist them to your anti-woman agenda.
TJ Eckleburg July 13, 2014 at 08:21 pm
Etaoin, you are trying to reason with the un-reasonable. Carullo and the others have beenRead More indoctrinated by the priests, bishops and popes since they were little children. They have no ability to use logic reasoning. You're wasting your time.

I'm pretty sure that most comics aimed at an adult audience are intended to stir up conversation,Read More otherwise why would the Patch (an interactive blog posting type of news site that can only profit if they can show advertisers how many people visit their site and how involved their readers are with the content) post comics at all if they don't expect anyone to have a reaction? The entire premise behind Patch is to create an interactive news experience .... sheesh. It is funny to hear people without children who say that what is wrong with the world today is that we lack the values and parenting style of the older generation but when the parents actually try to take a stand on an issue that they believe is important, they are again criticized for not embracing the changing times and the role of technology. It's b.s. - kids are still kids and they will get a good education regardless of whether they are reading their textbooks on paper or on a tablet computer. They can read off a black board, white board or smart board. The content delivery is not nearly as important as the content itself and the belief that there are real people in their lives who are there to support them along the way. How can you get the feeling of real people supporting you if every person you interact with is communicating to you electronically? It just isn't normal and our entire society is to blame.... But, you can just laugh at the funny pictures, too. I won't criticize you for your choice to miss the point of it.

As for Cuomo, another hack forced on us by the liberal establishment that has dominated NY State.Read More The result of Liberal leaders like Cuomo and his Dad......the highest taxes in the nation, higest exodus of businesses and people in the nation, filthiest roads and public properties and don't let me even get into the debt and dirty money laundering of debt through public authorities, one of the highest spenders of tax revenue on illegal aliens that come to steal from the taxpayer, tuition breaks too. Highest Medicaide payments to non workers and illegals, highest insurnace rates due to Sheldon and Cuomo being in bed with every big trial lawyer company that exists in this sue happy state. I can go on but you guys who pay the taxes while taking away from your family know what I mean. Cuomo fans....give me one single accomplishment of this hack that is more than just another photo op, or lying commercials about job creation which is outright fraud. Just one that saved me one red cent, just a penny. Let's here it.

Michael Marr July 13, 2014 at 07:46 pm
Forgetting how you got to work, or leaving a baby in a car, are indicators of problems with shortRead More term memory. Short term memory has to do with what you were doing in the last 30 to 60 seconds. These lapses act like a memory wipe -- you know, you get in your car, then go back in the house and then say, why did I come back in the house?
porter gladstone III July 13, 2014 at 08:02 pm
So , RDF you think that there should be consequences for actions. Yes , so do I. And I think I canRead More speak for most everyone else arguing similarly to me, that they also believe that there should be consequences. My belief however is that we all make mistakes in life. Some have more severe results as is in this case. My reaction is more about how you feel that it can never happen to you, and how this can only happen to stupid irresponsible people and that it's obvious to you given what occurred. I'll provide one more piece of anecdotal evidence that I dont think will be viewed as unique: I have a friend who had 4 kids. 3 went on to become successful professionals, and one became a heroin addict. My question to you is my friend a good parent or a bad parent? Is he an idiot or something else? For me it's not as easy an equation. But since you are very good at making determinations, I'll listen to your judgment. (and then after that, I hope your kids turn out the way you hope as sometimes , as they say , shit happens.

TJ Eckleburg July 11, 2014 at 09:35 am
They leave the scene if they are doing something illegal, like DUI, because the consequences forRead More "hit and run" are not as severe as vehicular manslaughter, which would be the charge for killing someone while driving drunk.
