Re: How closing bases can be good for our communities

Do some research on the many "closed" military bases around the United States. How many of them are being turned into "Civilian Internment Camps"? (aka: concentration camps)

Do a search for: american gulag/FEMA/civilian internment camps and see what they don't want you to know.

Re: Supporters rally around reputed gang member

Can't say I'm terribly concerned about the fate of an attempted murderer...

But he's 18, if the CYA is so horrible, he can enter a nice correctional facility...

Re: Leftwing Fascism in Santa Cruz

I cannot imagine why anyone could possibly object to the following statements, let alone object to using the taxpayer's money to subsidize their injection into the academic "free marketplace of ideas":

America is engaged in two wars for the survival of its civilization. The war over same-sex marriage and the war against Islamic totalitarianism are actually two fronts in the same war -- a war for the preservation of the unique American creation known as Judeo-Christian civilization.


One enemy is religious extremism. The other is secular extremism.


One enemy is led from abroad. The other is directed from home.


The first war is against the Islamic attempt to crush whoever stands in the way of the spread of violent Islamic theocracies, such as al Qaeda, the Taliban, the Iranian mullahs and Hamas. The other war is against the secular nihilism that manifests itself in much of Western Europe, in parts of America such as San Francisco and in many of our universities.


America leads the battle against both religious and secular nihilism and is hated by both because it rejects both equally. American values preclude embracing either religious extremism or radical secularism. As Alexis de Tocqueville, probably the greatest observer of our society, wrote almost 200 years ago, America is a unique combination of secular government and religious (Judeo-Christian) society.


Not only has this combination been unique, it has been uniquely successful. America, therefore, poses as mortal a threat to radical secularism as it does to Islamic totalitarianism. Each understands that America's success means its demise.


This is a major reason why the Left so opposes anti-Islamism (just as it opposed anti-communism). In theory, the Left should be at least as opposed to the Islamists as is the Right. But the Left is preoccupied first with destroying America's distinctive values -- a Judeo-Christian society (as opposed to a secular one), capitalism (as opposed to socialism), liberty (as opposed to equality) and exceptionalism (as opposed to universalism, multiculturalism and multilateralism). So, if the Islamists are fellow anti-Americans, the Left figures it can worry about them later.


Good thing the Senile was able to dig up a retired UCLA professor to write such insightful commentary, and equally good everything she says is true, ipso facto, so no documentation or supporting evidence need be provided.

More deeply intellectual commentary from Dennis Prager

"Women exposing their bodies in public is a big deal. Playing with the sex drive, the most powerful force in nature, is far more dangerous than playing with fire. Even if one welcomes this development -- and for the record, as a male I am turned on, while as a man I am turned off -- it begs for explanation."


What begs for explanation is how this differs in outlook from the Saudis and Taliban.

Re: Teens plan anti-governor march

Personally I feel that we have quite enough illegal immigrants polluting our country's workforce and such. To be historically cliched, I (and many others) believe that, for example, Hispanic aliens are pouring into this country, not making the effort to learn the language, USING their inability to understand in order to get undeserved financial assistence, reproducing like bacteria, causing non-hispanic citizens to HAVE to learn spanish in order to get by in every day events (like buying a cheeseburger at McDonalds), the list goes on but i don't mean to be offensive. My family moved to this country from Portugal looking for the opportunity of a better evironment, however we learned the language, we adopted the culture, we accepted our new surroundings and we take care of ourselves the legal way. We pay our taxes and have our own social security number that we obtained legitimately. This isn't to say we abandoned our home culture, we are still Portuguese and love our country and people dearly. The only reason why it seems that I am attacking hispanics is because I have yet to see another culture who has so STRONGLY defaced our country as they have. Look, I'm not some bigoted redneck from Samhill, Nowhere. I'm a young New Yorker who spent 12 years of my life in a home of Guatemalans, Ecuadorians, Peruvians, Puerto Ricans, Argentinians, Mexicans and El Salvadorians. I know each culture like the back of my hand and each of them are so pathetically predictable. Honestly, I pray for the day that I meet a hispanic who has broken away from the typical lifestyle of their ancestors and maybe.. speaks english?
I regress. On the topic of getting rid of Arnold, I certainly agree one hundred percent. He is unfit for any position in politics and damaging to the welfare of our (hopefully) recovering nation. I've yet to hear about one positive step he's taken in bettering California's current state. He's a Hollywood Gov. elected by Hollywood not-a-care-in-the-world republicans, and most anyone else in California who isn't in stride with that crowd will be left behind. It's a sad story. I thought the sh*t hit the fan with Bloomberg being elected into New Yorks office. I pray for you, California.
I apologize for any offence that I have caused, but I stand by beliefs and anticipate being proven incorrect.

Re: Supporters rally around reputed gang member

Let me get this straight. The whole community can find time to rally behind a kid that has tried to kill some guy who was just going to the store. And to top it off, I suppose that because of the harsh hostile environment of kids prison (CYA) he had no choice but to try to commite yet another crime. In short, shame on CYA for making such a outstanding aritculate future leader of a free society resort to such thugish means.
