I'm all for water conservation at every level. But at some point we have to understand that what weRead More really need is INCREASED RECIPITATION (snow and rain). Doesn't it just make sense that our political leaders need to petition the Feds/ Military to INTERVENE in the form of cloud seeding, cloud enhancement, Solar Radiation Management and even Jetstream control over North America and elsewhere? These weather modification technologies have been researched and tested for over 50 years by USAF and the Navy. It is not a "conspiracy theory" and needs to be openly discussed NOW.

What's interesting is that a higher minimum wage would probably not even be required if AmericansRead More would start living within their means and stop exaggerating the "full faith and credit of the US Federal Government" as an excuse to screw their grandchildren and run up magnificent debts that no one will ever repay. How in the world will the US ever pay back tens of trillions in debt? Seriously? Right now interest rates are at record lows. This is unsustainable. When rates rise, and they will rise, people will have far greater worries than "hey, what's the minimum wage?". We should not have government setting prices for anything (minimum wage is the price for basic, unskilled labor). We should have markets setting prices, including labor, food and services. This is where value comes from. When the government gets involved in markets, you can almost guarantee several things will happen like clockwork: higher prices that don't reflect value, gross mis-allocation of scare resources into riskier-than-normal endeavors in search of higher returns, inaccurate evaluations of risk, creative financing that's borderline fraud, lack of true price information (value) for consumers, unhealthy markets, gross malinvestment. Housing bubble, education bubble and now minimum wage. It keeps happening, and people wonder "OMG how did this come about". Yet we're only doing it to ourselves.

Then you come to these threads and read comments from people who have the testicles to say "not my party!". That's horsecrap. If you think the Republicans OR Democrats understand the problem, or are even remotely motivated to solve it, then you are absolutely hopeless.

What's a Latino? Is that like an American? If we can have a Latino in America to garner an "usRead More against them" America, why can't America have Germanino or Irishino or Frenchino so that it's also about us against them ?

The whooping cough vaccine. Patch file photo.
Sheri Ellis-Patterson July 21, 2014 at 09:30 am
Many of the studies show that the vaccine isn't as effective as they've been touting. In fact, aRead More huge number of children getting this are children who have been vaccinated. So your statement above that the vaccine "prevents the disease" is not accurate. The parents withholding have done their research and believe the vaccine isn't effective and has serious risk for some children. It's time for the vaccine manufacturers to start making higher quality and safer vaccines.

The bail should have been set at 2.5 million each. Any of their crooked friends can come up withRead More 2,000 to bail them out. Then they become flight risks and extradition cost tax payers even more. Dumb judge.

The amendments the House is passing to not penalize banks who do business with legal medical andRead More recreational pot dispensaries, and also to prohibit the DEA from interfering with state marijuana laws is all really good news! This is a step in the right direction allowing the people of their home state to be a real voice in what kind of society they wish to live in. Now that is real freedom! We'll have to see how the Senate handles it.

Death Row in San Quentin. Patch file photo.
Jeffe' July 19, 2014 at 11:09 pm
Fact: People are wrongfully convicted. Even 1 innocent person wrongfully executed is too much, theRead More fact that you are ok with that says a lot about how little you actually have thought about this. How many bad guys do we need to kill to make it ok to execute 1 innocent man? 100 to 1? 20 to 1? 1 to 1? If you think that death is the only effective deterrent to crime that matters then are also very confused. Do you really think that it is pointless to put anyone in prison, probation, or fine them, since death is the only deterrent that matters? I encourage you to actually think about your position and how you arrived at that. Killing out of emotion (revenge) in no way makes murder ok. Killing in revenge is the ultimate sign of weakness. It takes strength to hold your rage and remain a civil thinking person. I couldn't care less about revenge and consequences. The criminal justice system is about the safety of our citizens, not vengeance. Locking someone up for life is enough because it removes a killer from his potential victims. It also costs the tax payers less money than killing them. Being in favor of a policy of executing people is also incompatible with belief in Christ, and when 70% of this nation claims to be Christian it should give you a good idea how many are full of shit that this is even a debate. Bottom line: No, your immature and selfish desire to kill people does not make it ok. It does not make us safer. It solves nothing. It wastes more tax dollars, and we have and will again execute innocent people because juries and judges are composed of people, and people are fallible. If you are ok with all that you should be locked away from the rest of society where you can do no harm. Sorry for the rant, long day and I keep seeing this subject brought up everywhere I look due to the court's decision. Thank you all for letting me get this out of my system =)

Wow! Talk about Brown-Obama-Democrat Cronyism. Not only can the system be built and installed forRead More less than $500/node, it already has. I helped with one of the nodes with-in the past four years. The system (requiring less than 25 sq.ft. (donated) can be set up similar to a Home WiFi Security Cam with FTP access. Really it can be automatically monitored and maintained for free through a cooperating University. This is merely a $16 million a year hornswoggle going into the crony's pocket. Its dirtier than greedy profit. All that, lying cheating and stealing on top of it. Republicans in office don't deserve to be there because they do not study and know about the communities they represent or what they have already (and recently) funded. They are not doing their jobs in a two party system. Having formerly worked for the DNC the only thing good I can say about democrats is they at least learn their constituencies well enough to manipulate them.
