Good luck to you, because you have dumb voters in your district.

Why else would Richardson still be in office.

Unfortunately, Ms. Parker does not have a chance. Sec 8ers, gangs, liberal enablers, parolees, lunatics, and other sorts of riffraff have infested the 37th. Richardson ,the freebee lady, just has to say she will give away the treasury...

Who would vote for Star Parker, is she a relation to Star Jones?

Maybe she should move back to Orange County, to San Clemente.
Not appropriate all this praying at a political meeting.

Whatever happen to separation of church and state.

If she's a decent sort and she's running against that pathetic deadbeat loser of an incumbent, I'll vote for her. I'll change my residence from Los Altos to Baja Compton, but only for election day. I mean, who wants to live in that dump of a congressional district?

To call Rep. Laura Richardson a former Assemblywomen is, while factually correct, is not exactly fair. She barely warmed the seat before she had gone off to Washington DC. About the only thing she did was buy a house that went into default, cut a dirty deal to keep from losing the house and failed to return calls and emails from her constituents. If she wasn't propped up by the Democratic leadership, she would be even more of a failure.

Another idiot liberal heard from. Not only does she not know where Ms. Parker lives, she does not understand the constitution. Quick lesson on that separation thing since obviously Claudia was asleep in class. The government cannot but a political meeting is not the government. It is a PRIVATE function open to the public. Given how Richardson has had the black churches in the area wrapped around her finger, it it more than appropriate that Ms. Parker reach out to groups that have been poorly represented by Richardson.

Ms. Parker has fulfilled all legal obligations for filing her candidacy. Get over it. Go cash your welfare check while you still can.

Laura Richardson is a criminal and should be voted out of office. Star is just an opportunist but will be better in the office and at least she is honest.

Creepy? What is creepy about an invocation and benediction? EVERY city council meeting has a invocation. All government meetings normally have an invocation. Or does your respect for others extend to only those who do things that you like?

Richardson is a progressive socialist libtard who should have been recalled and jailed LONG ago. But like the district I live in next to hers it is rife with dumboKraps three to one over independents and conservatives. So Linda Sanchez and Laura Richardson always ran virtually unopposed. Because the republican candidates didn't have the money or time to waste as both of them were shoe ins and never broke a sweat in running. This time there is REAL opposition and DIFFERENT agendas have a chance! I have been writing letters to Sanchez for over ten years and have NEVER received even a form letter! She listens only to her retarded liberals in the district. She is one of the worst representatives I have ever seen and needs to be RETIRED on November 2nd! Larry Andre is running against Madam Linda in the 39th district and needs all the help he can get in unseating this walking disaster of a politician from our midst!

Star Parker is nothing more than a glorified sychophant for the frightwing nuts and their base of robotic inbreds hiding behind their white picket fences and phoney "family values" mantra....

Star Parker will restore human dignity to those enslaved by the Government.

Laura Richardson voted for the union thugs (notice the person in the article "who did not want to be identified") that have bankrupted Long Beach, the state of California, and now, our Nation. She is a tax, borrow and waste devotee of Obama.

If today's Long Beach voters had any class, pride, or even an ounce of dignity, they would be thrilled to have the opportunity to be "represented" by someone with the character and integrity which define Star Parker.

Sadly, most believe that Richardson will be judged all the voters families deserve. Hopelessness will once again triumph over HOPE as the City fades into nothingness.

Relax Claudia...Don't worry Ms Parker won't take away your food stamps or Section 8 Housing dollars. You will still be able to contribute absolutely nothing to society.

Did you happen to notice that with prayer and God taken out of everything, everything has pretty much fallen apart? God loves us and wants to bless us, but if we say get out, He will get out, as he has given us free will. God loves you so much he sent his son to die for you.

Look around you. Look at the mess we are in. What could a little prayer for our city, for our nation, hurt?

If you haven't noticed, the void filled in the schools with God taken out has been filled with Islam and teaching that it is a religion of peace. That's what is being taught in our public schools and universities now. Our kids are being indoctrimated and Sharia law is creeping into our nation. Islam means "submission", and that is what their goal for America is. We have been told that if we don't build the mosque in N.Y. we will incite violence against us. Doesn't sound too peaceful to me.

What a shame.

I saw Star Parker speak and I think she is pretty amazing. She has been to hell and back and rose above her circumstances. She has integrity and a true desire to help her constituants. But those are values that just don't seem to be popular these days.

The candidate with the most false promises and handouts to give - is that what you really want?

Oh, and you don't like a little prayer at a political meeting? Wait until we are under Sharia and the loudspeakers call everyone to prayer 5 times a day. Sharia IS church and state.
