Illegal means against the law!! Anyone who does not give a damn about this countries laws, does not give a damn about this country. Barack Obama does not give a damn about this country. Employers who hire illegal aliens, do not give a damn about this country. Sanctuary cities who pander to these criminals, San Fransisco, Los Angeles, do not give a damn about this country. People who do not give a damn about our laws should and will be shot dead. It's comming, it's not if, it's when. Before California completely dies, you can count on one thing, the criminals that caused this will pay the ultimate price for their illegal activities. Los Angeles City council, San Fransisco City Council and county officials along with Police Chiefs who did not enforce the law. It's comming. We are in a civil cold war right now. Jerry Brown has been an absolute failure governing the state of California. The idiots that voted for Jerry Brown, voted for NO jobs for American's and more illegal aliens. You idiots will for sure pay, for being traders and working against the state of California. You must feel real proud that you brought down a state by pandering to illegal aliens. You are guilty!!!!!! You can stick your same sex marriage up your ass as well. Anchor baby brats are illegal aliens too. Everyone is in big trouble in California. They are making huge cuts so they can keep their illegal alien slave labor illegal baby brats. Everyone will suffer before this is over. Jerry Brown is blaming the people, saying....You new I couldn't fix the problem when you voted for me. I only ran for historicle purposes. Oh brother we are all in trouble. This aint never gonna end. I see civil unrest comming big time.

THE MEXICAN PROBLEM
We mexicans are fed up with the constant accusations of all bigots that use the economy downturn as an excuse to target Mexicans. Always in desperate times you all point to an outside source. When the majority of times is your own greedy and corrupted official and politician that shit on your country's economy for self-interest or incompetence. Just look at the recent tremendous loss of Chase bank or the past scandals of ENRON. Is that Mexicans to blame? How about the welfare "bail outs" given to American corporations. Is that Mexicans to blame? How about the (white american) poor people of the South region that are nearly 40% of all welfare recipients. Is that Mexicans to blame? American Corporation that take away jobs and move overseas to increase their profit. Is that Mexicans to blame?? Manipulated oil prices for record gas revenues. Is that Mexicans to blame? War. Is that Mexicans to blame?....once you fix all these problems maybe I could understand your problem fixated on Mexicans.
Lets all be honest..... Is 17% of "Hispanics" (not all mexicans) taking welfare the only problem of this country economical downturn? Either you're ignorant or a bigot focusing on the weakest, easiest thing to blame or both! This is why your politicians aren't as fixated on immigration as much bigots would want because immigrants by majority come to work, most will go back as soon as they can't support themselves. Many are deported yearly under immigration laws. The ones that stay contribute to the economy by buying houses, opening business and doing odd jobs that employers can't find Americans to do, either Americans don't want to do or simply there aren't any, specially in Southern California. There are a few bad apples don't get me wrong, just like the east coast had their share of bad apples with recent poor, uneducated immigrants (Italian, Jews, Irish, etc) that migrated early in the 1900's dealing with high crime rates (organize crime), poverty and low standards of living. It's not a Mexican problem people. The difference is that Mexicans are the recent immigrants that are easily identify and targeted, no different than the recent poor and uneducated European immigrants from the early 1900's.
Don't be blinded by ignorance or fool by bigots that state it's a "Mexican problem". Stop relating your countries problems to Mexicans alone. Is not as if all Mexicans are lazy on welfare. The Majority are responsible and contribute to the economy, and also pay taxes! Talents in sports and big/small tv are easily visible. Mexican contribution in armed forces are huge. I'll give you a bit more respect by showing your true nature of a bigot, instead of justifying your hate by ranting false accusations.

I usually scrounge em out of the dumpster there. See, what I do is I call in for a dozen McRibs for pick up. Then, when no one ever shows up to get em, they just throw em out back. Wait. No, that's what I do for PIZZA...

RICKY RAT hasn't really been following this story. Why, exactly, are the trying to ban plastic bags? Is there some kind of shortage of plastic? Well, if there is, as long as we got enough for the next forty years, we're OK. Because that's about when RICKY RAT thinks he'll be meeting the Big Rodent in the Sky. Fifty, tops...

Liberals are constantly trying to legislate control other people's behaviors. Get over yourselves, we don't need a nanny state that can't even pass a balanced budged. If anyone needs nannying and nagging, its our giant liberal government.

Paper bags are recyclable, renewable, biodegradable and plentiful. Sounds good, more paper bags please.

On the other hand, plastic bags are also recyclable, cheap, convenient and reusable. Sounds good, more plastic bags please.
Nanny state liberals do need to butt out of my shopping habits and get a life. Its consumers who will decide what they buy and which bags to use, not government. We won't be told by our failed government what bags are acceptable, that's utter nonsense. Now go get your priorities in order and pass a balanced budget before doing *anything* else.
