Obama Election Sends Stock Market Into the Toilet

I'm not so confident about his reelection as you are because as much as the GOP supporters LOVE to drum up the main stream media bias, even in a city as large as Los Angeles, there is really only conservative talk radio unless you really search hard on the radio dial. I don't think Obama has done a great job, but he has 1 1/2 years to go to the next election. If the economy improves and we don't have a major terrorist attack before then (both things many conservatives predicted in the opposite), then I think he deserves another go at it.  (Feb 2, 2011 | post #20)

Obama Election Sends Stock Market Into the Toilet

1/20/09 DJIA - 7949.09 closing (Obama inaugurated) 2/1/11 DJIA - 12,040.16 closing 51.5% increase! If you are going to blame him for the drop, shouldn't he get credit for the rise?  (Feb 1, 2011 | post #18)

STOCK MARKET: OBAMA Gets AN 'F'

The stock market crossed 12,000 today for the first time in 2 1/2 years. If Obama was to blame for the drop, should he now be given the credit for it's rise?  (Feb 1, 2011 | post #112)

Arizona congresswoman shot through head; at least 5 other...

Back and forth, back and forth! ALL you extreme partisans suck! What lesson that should be culled from this awful act is that while foreign terrorists and illegal immigrant criminals are issues, an average American is far more likely to meet a violent end at the hand (or by actions) of "average looking" Americans. Drunk drivers, common criminals, and deranged nuts like this guy are far more likely to look like your neighbor than an "evil-looking " Mexican or Middle Easterner.  (Jan 9, 2011 | post #246)

Ruling: Undocumented immigrants can pay in-state tuition

Did you mean to say "Why" don't you state.....? What "agenda" do you imply I have? I have stated over and over that I agree that only children of citizens, or those here with special circumstances (in the process of becoming citizens, special work visa, etc.) should be allowed to be enrolled in public K-12 classes. But that isn't the case now. And so if we let a non-citizen kid, even from a family not here legally, attend K-12 without issue, why is it an issue when he/she wants to enroll in a CSU or UC school and PAY the rate his/her graduating class pays? I don't think my position is that of some bleeding heart liberal....I am actually for keeping the the kids from enrolling in a public school in the first place!  (Nov 18, 2010 | post #147)

Ruling: Undocumented immigrants can pay in-state tuition

It was voted in, by a large majority, but deemed unconstitutional. Look up prop 187.  (Nov 17, 2010 | post #140)

Ruling: Undocumented immigrants can pay in-state tuition

They still aren't considered "residents ". There are a handful of ways, under SB 540, that non-residents can pay resident rates. I do agree that those under AB 540 are either here legally or in the process of becoming citizens, so this differs quite a bit. I think it has to do with the fact that these kids (17-18 year olds) didn't bring themselves here. And while minors here, they went to school and graduated with good grades. right or wrong, they have assimilated into our system. The obvious best solution is that we have no illegal aliens in the state, therefor no children of illegal aliens in the school system.  (Nov 17, 2010 | post #139)

Ruling: Undocumented immigrants can pay in-state tuition

And you know these assumptions to be true from all the experience you have in dealing with illegal aliens? And just how many "illegal aliens" do you think are displacing "honest citizens" from CSU, UC, and community colleges and further bankrupting the system? How about .3% of all UC students in 2007-2008. That would be 3 out of a 1,000. And AB 540 students received .5% UC's "core" state-funded budget of $5.4 billion from the "value" of the non-resident tuition waiver. Less than 1% of the CSU system are receiving AB 540 waivers this year, and in 2009 about 1% received the same non-resident waivers in the community college system. Remember, the law allows students who attended California high school for at least three years and graduated here, including citizens, to pay in-state tuition even if they are not legal residents of the state. Undocumented AB 540 students in California are barred from all state, school or federal grants or loans. They also must sign an affidavit promising to seek legal status as soon as they can, even though most of the students have no avenue to obtain that status. http://www.sacbee. com/2010/04/01/264 8006/illegal-immig rants-less-than-1. html  (Nov 17, 2010 | post #123)

Ruling: Undocumented immigrants can pay in-state tuition

CSU and UC schools accept applicants from all over the world. Do you consider that wrong, too? Aren't "honest citizens" turned away when foreign students are accepted? Those that are the most qualified should be accepted. You can call illegal immigrants all the name in the book if you like - I don't think it is appropriate or morally acceptable to call a 17 year old kid a liar, cheater, or criminal because his/her parents came here illegal when he/she was a minor.  (Nov 16, 2010 | post #122)

Ruling: Undocumented immigrants can pay in-state tuition

You said there would be people flooding in because of this ruling. For one thing, the kid has to attend and graduate from a CA H.S. first. Do you really think someone is going to illegally immigrate from Mexico to the US with the thought of a reduced fee for a college education as a primary reason? Maybe....it might be reason #137 on their list!  (Nov 16, 2010 | post #116)

Ruling: Undocumented immigrants can pay in-state tuition

Why do you have to identify everyone by their political party? whomever was a judge and governor is not germane to this issue. And "illegal alien" will suffice. too. It isn't necessary to put words like "lying", "thieving ", etc. in front all the time. I'm not throwing anyone under the bus, and what does this issue have to do with my fellow citizens? It has to do with tuition fees. I don't like quotas - I think the most qualified that apply should get to attend. If a kid grew up in California, worked hard and got good grades, and now is accepted into a CSU or UC school, and there is a rate for those that are residents of California or graduates of California High Schools, and he/she did in fact graduate from a high school in California, then he/she should get to pay that rate. If those are the rules, then so be it. I also have posted a number of times that the real issue is letting children of illegal aliens enter K-12 in the first place. THAT shouldn't happen. Don't let them ever enroll in the first place. How much do you think it costs for 13 years of public school education? I'm sure a LOT more than the $6000 or so difference in tuition per year at a CSU school for resident vs. non-resident! If we are allowing them to go to public school FREE for 13 years, what sense is it to get all up in arms about allowing them to PAY the resident tuition at a university?  (Nov 16, 2010 | post #115)

Report: Vehicle air pollution down 85% since 1975

I'm glad stories like this come out. I remember as a kid in the 70's there being days that you could actually "see" the smog when looking up the block! The visibility wasn't as bad as a really foggy day, but sometimes on hot summer days, a brown haze would actually make it difficult to see the houses on the end of the block. It never gets close to that bad anymore, even though the amount of cars in Southern California has more than doubled in the last 30 years.  (Nov 16, 2010 | post #5)
