Folkens sees long odds to unseat Baca

Full story: San Bernardino County Sun

Scott Folkens is a Republican, and a quite conservative one at that. He supports school vouchers, a tougher line on illegal immigration, and is an avid opponent of the health-care bill approved Sunday.

Wrong seat, wrong time.

He won't win in a heavily democratic seat. I know. I used to be a Republican, and I ran for Lucille Roybal Allard's old Assembly seat back in 1987. The problem is that Republicans are way out of touch in general, and Folkens is chasing windmills at this point. He could be called the Karl Pilkington of Bloomington.

I disagree with Hankram.

People are tired of the "Chicago Politics" Obama has brought to the federal government. Behind closed door planning, sweetheart deals to individuals, and strong arming legislators is an affront to our constitution. I say clear the whole lot of them out of congress now! This congress will not be happy until we are in a full depression. You tell me how taxes are going to pay for this health care when people DO NOT have JOBS! Wake up out of your wonderland existence. Time for Baca to go!

I'd not rule out Folkens. You're right anonymous, we've had a belly full of Chicago politics on the Potomac.

The way to get rid of Baca is to bribe him with a house in his beloved Mexico and have him move there. Bribery is a teachable moment courtesy of the Democratic party.

Baca is anti American and is more interested in giving illegal aliens a safe harbor. Illegal means exactly that, illegal. Mr Baca shame on you. What have you done for jobs. Have you seen the area you represent, it is a cespool.

I truly hope and will help Folkens try to win this seat but when you are a entrenched liberal democrat in a mainly liberal district, the odds are going to be tough. Baca is nothing more than a wanna be "Santa Claus" who wants to give away any and everything to those who are illegally here.

Joe junior is just as bad. Rialto has begun to look like some third world crap hole because of his and the rest of our corrupt city council's ill thought, lying policies. Throw the whole bunch out and begin anew.

I would vote for a stray dog before I would vote for any incumbent, on any level in November.

Even us nut cases in the Tea Party think Scott is too extreme for us! He wants to deport all Mexicans legal or not. Wants to make all schools Christian only,(not Catholic) He brags about Freedom on his website, yet does not want freedom for Gays, freedom to divorce, or freedom to go to the casinos and gamble! But I do think Scott thinks it is okay to have an affair with a student? Remember 5 years ago? What did your wife think about those family values Scott?

Please Folken, remember he sold out his vote to have the government send him a little water. He sold out Americans and democracy and sold out democracy and the will of the people for a little water. Use that against him.

In case you want to know why to vote for Folken, try these reasons:


From the L. A. Times
1. 40% of all workers in L. A. County (L. A. County has 10.2 million people) are working for cash and not paying taxes. This is because they are predominantly illegal immigrants working without a green card.
2. 95% of warrants for murder in Los Angeles are for illegal aliens.
3. 75% of people on the most wanted list in Los Angeles are illegal aliens.
4. Over 2/3 of all births in Los Angeles County are to illegal alien Mexicans on Medi-Cal, whose births were paid for by taxpayers.
5. Nearly 35% of all inmates in California detention centers are Mexican nationals here illegally.
6. Over 300,000 illegal aliens in Los Angeles County are living in garages.
7. The FBI reports half of all gang members in Los Angeles are most likely illegal aliens from south of the border.
8 Nearly 60% of all occupants of HUD properties are illegal.
9. 21 radio stations in L. A. are Spanish speaking.
10.. In L. A. County 5.1 million people speak English, 3.9 million speak Spanish.
(There are 10.2 million people in L. A. County.)

(All 10 of the above facts were published in the Los Angeles Times)
Less than 2% of illegal aliens are picking our crops, but 29% are on welfare.
Over 70% of the United States' annual population growth (and over 90% of
California, Florida and New York) results from immigration.
29% of inmates in federal prisons are illegal aliens.

Your are totally mistaken and full of hot air! First off, no one can deport anyone who is a citizen. You and I both know that. I believe all illegals should be deported because they are criminals who have broken the law. Period. The state of California would be able to repair itself financially because there would be more jobs, we would be a safer state, and the hospitals would be cleared up of those who use it as a dumping ground for their ingrown toenails.

Wow Marie, that's great stuff. This information should be in the news much more frequently. Thanks for posting.

When you try to make an argument for why someone should vote for someone use facts based in OUR district not LA county! were you a Continuation school dropout? Most of the voters in the district are related to someone you just mentioned. Nice try!

Right ideas, wrong reasons. There's something for everyone in this health care bill...to hate.

1. Medicare is being cut
2. Insurance rates will go up
3. No rewards for healthy lifestyles
4. Medi-Cal is going to be severely restricted

California will lose about $2 billion annually in Federal subsidies. That means more borrowing and higher taxes to make up for the shortfall. The people who are well-informed about this legislation are predominately NOT in favor of it!

There is a message for every voter, no matter what Party they belong to. The key is tailoring the message for each demographic.

But mostly, "It's the economy, stupid!". Get ready, you're gonna hear a lot of that (again) soon.

It sucks living in Bacca's heavily gerrymander district. I mean Ontario should be in a district with Upland. Not a district with friggin Rialto and San Bernardino.
