It was probably called in by some guy who watches Fox News to find out what his opinions are."Forty-one percent of mothers in Las Cruces have children out of wedlock. Probably all 41 percent are drawing taxpayer dollars in the form of food stamps. Twenty-two million Americans are on food stamp welfare. No wonder our country is flirting with bankruptcy."
Excuse me but I have a child out of wedlock and I have not received one dime from the government. I am college educated and take care of my child!! I take great offense to this comment, I have worked my @$$ off to get where I am at and for someone to make such a blanket statement is just plain ignorant.

Dubya simply screwed up the invasion of Afghanistan. It was legal but horrible ill advised. He sent an elephant after a mouse when a cat would have done nicely.
Dubya was forced to LIE to the congress to implement the illegal and immoral Iraqi invasion.
The Authorization to Use Force Against Iraq REQUIRED Bush to certify a link between Saddam and 9/11:
"I have also determined that the use of armed force against Iraq is consistent with the United States and other countries continuing to take the necessary actions against international terrorists and terrorist organizations, including those nations, organizations, or persons who planned, authorized, committed, or aided the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11, 2001." -George Bush, certification to Congress to authorize the use of force in Iraq, March 23, 2003
"Armed force against Iraq is consistent with"...actions against...nations...who...aide d the terrorist attacks that occurred on September 11," is what that sentence reads, with the lawyerly gobbledygook stripped out. In other words, Saddam "aided" 9/11.
Did he lie? Forgery or no forgery, on Sept. 18, 2003, on Meet the Press, Bush said:
"No, we've had no evidence that Saddam Hussein was involved with September the 11th.
The bombing of Libya was in direct requests by the U.N. Security Council, European allies, the Arab League, and the Libyan opposition after the right wing Chickenhawks had been bustin' his chops for not supporting the rebels. Libya has about as much in common with Dubya's LYING the country into Iraq as a high school kid coping a feel and a back alley serial rapist.

just got repeated for the 10,000th time. Is there a Nobel Prize for lying?

This is the point you moron. They had to change the whole law to make it work. You have been had and you are not even aware of the consequences of this. It means anyone can for any reason change laws to their benefit and profit if you let this crap continue.
Get this straight in your head! If a cop stops you it is criminal,not the way these crooks set it up. The way they have it cannot stand up in a court of law.

You might ask Radical Teacher to tutor you in your reading and comprehension skills. The Sound Off Caller stated "41% of women had children OUT OF WEDLOCK" & are "PROBABLY" on the dole.
So did you have your children out of WEDLOCK to have gotten so worked up about this?
Plenty of single moms that are divorcees read the Sound Off Callers comment and didn't scold the person for stating a sentiment held by many: TOO MANY ARE ON THE DOLE (woman having kids like rabbits having bunnies).

We have a great national power grid. Why do we not have a national fresh water grid? We could be shipping tens of millions of fresh, clean water from the flood-ravaged Midwest to the West Coast and to the drought-infected area.
Good idea, let's do it.

How do this mothers who have kids out of wedlock, how do
they qualify to get food stamps and get money at the same
time, this mothers should not have kids if they can't afford them, it is a shame if they are really getting away
with coming out making kid after kid and just sitting down
and waiting to go and collect thier monthly amount of stamps for every time they have another baby amd who's
paying the bill every time they are in the hospital making
more and more kids.

The United States cannot go bankrupt nor will its checks bounce. Our grandkids will not be saddled with our generation's federal debt. China is not going to ever own us. These are political fictions promoted by the pundit class without a basis in reality in order to promote conflict among political constituencies and create media buzz. The US does not pay its bills with tax revenues or cash, it pays them with electronic transfers at the Federal Reserve Bank. Take a deep breath, relax, and realize that the real reason for the "deficit" is so the federal government can sop up the supply of goods and services produced in the US economy that the private sector and cities and states can't afford. The real reason for taxes is to regulate demand and inflation by controlling how much money we have to spend for goods and services produced by the US economy. In order to lower the annual "deficit", policy makers should lower taxes for consumers so they can buy more stuff and the federal government won't have to by so much to keep supply and demand in balance.

The owner of the vehicle is not required to pay a camera ticket if they were not the person driving. All they have to do is disclose who the driver was and mail in the response. By your logic, because a person "allowed" someone else to drive their vehicle then shouldn't all traffic citations be mailed to the registered owner regardless of who was driving, and the owner be responsible for reimbursment from the driver? Its not the owners problem, that's not how the law works in America.

Because the article is about 41% of children born out of wedlock. Out of wed lock means the mothers were not married at the time the children were born.
It has nothing to do with mothers of children who are divorced or widowed.
Yes there are many individuals who are on public assistance through no fault of their own due to circumstances that they did not have control of.
This article is not about that.
This article is about mothers who chose to have a child without the benefit of a father. The wefare comments refer to those who's child will be on public assistance from the time the mother begins medical treatment for the pregnancy.
Pregnancy is not a circumstance that the individual has no control of. Pregnancy is a choice. 41% of mothers are choosing to be pregnant without the benefit of a father. Those children are more likely to be supported by the state.

I am opposed to the red light cameras based on the amount of money that is sent out of state by this program.
As I understand it, our city gets $25 dollars of the $100 dollar ticket. If that's true, then we are sending $75 dollars out of our community.
Let's keep that $75 here in Las Cruces. Hire enough traffic cops to patrol the intersections and pay them with the $75 dollars that our community would lose. At least the $75 dollars would be spent here in our community not sent somewhere else.
And the the councilman/woman who made the statement that you are changing behavior. It's not you job to change someone's behavior. You have no business as a government representative to change someone's behavior.
