@David Brown Just like you and your liberal hating gang use the term tea baggers???.you should knowRead More best, your Dem party is a classic example of everything that is wrong with this country....... hate, racism, elitism, statism, socialism, lies, deceit, criminal behavior etc anything to destroy individualism and success because after all...your Dem party relies on ignorance and lies to trap the poor souls as vote slaves for handouts..... the uneducated takers of our society ......on the taxpayers dime.

Notice the libs on this site such a TJ and such miscreants that resort to personal insults...noRead More intelligence, no fact just name calling. Just like the 47% who cannot control their emotions and are too lazy to do the research and learn. Anger and jealousy for their personal decisions to take the lazy way out in life so evident in their emotional, immature posts. Enjoy your life of dependency on government hacks for their your being and survival. LOL

John Wayne wore a costume and dodged service in WWII while stars like Jimmy Stewart and Clark GableRead More flew B-17 combat missions over Nazi occupied Europe. Never forget, this man was a complete fraud and coward. He literally cried to the studio execs to keep him from having to leave the comfort of Hollywood. At least Elvis went overseas.

I use to feel the way you did. Personality, the business class and particularly in Orange County hasRead More hired them for jobs for over 30 years. In fact some of the stats by the US Census while lots of conservatives will not agree with is some of the illegal immigrants left Santa Ana and Anaheim since they couldn't find jobs. The Census shows OC aging and Hispanic immigrants tend to make the county younger but OC is now about 37 years old. Hispanic immigrants tend to have more children and bring the average down. The US Census shows a dropped from 2.8 in 2007 to 2.12 now. Granted, there are still lots of illegal immigrants in the OC but at one time they were over 300,000. As for conservatives Texas has almost as bad a problem since business there hired them to do construction and service jobs like dishwashers and fast food. Also, OC kid population has been dropping which is why I think at least some illegals went home or to other parts of California or out of state. The 5 and under population is now onl 6.1 which is slightly below the US average and the under 18 population is about 23.3 also under the national average.. In fact Hispanics were more foreign born as a percentage of the workforce under George W Bush in 2007 when they represent 56 and are now at 49. The only reason I believe that illegal Hispanics are coming and going particularly from Mexico is the birthrate is dropping they tend to have near the 3.0 figure in the US while native born Hispanics are closer to 2.0.

The Central American kids crisis is a law passed under George W Bush because of human trafficking itRead More went to far in the direction of protecting them. On the other hand, Mexico we can just return the kids without having a court hearing that the 2008 act made different for the Central American kids. The hypercracy over many Republicans on immigration allowed companies like here in Orange County and Texas to hire them but pushed border control when probably getting rid of the job magnet a long time ago even under George W Bush's first term would have solved the problem. In Orange County that met not hiring every maid, landscaper, car washer, fast food worker, day labor, low skilled assembly worker usually in garment work or sometimes medical devices or aerospace assembly, and prep cooks. These are just some of the jobs that have been done by illegal immigrants in Orange County the passed 30 years. They entered Santa Ana in the late 1970's and started with simple factory work that is now in Mexico because of NAFTA.

How 'bout the dog's owner that was stabbed? How's that fund raising going?

It may be less cruel to put the dog down. It sounds like he will be in a lifetime of pain and thatRead More isn't fair to him at all!

I'm pretty sure that most comics aimed at an adult audience are intended to stir up conversation,Read More otherwise why would the Patch (an interactive blog posting type of news site that can only profit if they can show advertisers how many people visit their site and how involved their readers are with the content) post comics at all if they don't expect anyone to have a reaction? The entire premise behind Patch is to create an interactive news experience .... sheesh. It is funny to hear people without children who say that what is wrong with the world today is that we lack the values and parenting style of the older generation but when the parents actually try to take a stand on an issue that they believe is important, they are again criticized for not embracing the changing times and the role of technology. It's b.s. - kids are still kids and they will get a good education regardless of whether they are reading their textbooks on paper or on a tablet computer. They can read off a black board, white board or smart board. The content delivery is not nearly as important as the content itself and the belief that there are real people in their lives who are there to support them along the way. How can you get the feeling of real people supporting you if every person you interact with is communicating to you electronically? It just isn't normal and our entire society is to blame.... But, you can just laugh at the funny pictures, too. I won't criticize you for your choice to miss the point of it.
Judie July 14, 2014 at 08:05 am
Cheryl, no I didn't miss the point, and yes I think the cartoon is funny. My only opinion would beRead More to lighten up, but that's only my opinion. Have a happy day.

Compare cost at a location with the number of chiropractors there. Insurance fraud marches on.

@ RDJ i was chuckling wen reading your comment on the dead battery in the child seat proposal iRead More presented as a solution tor this tragedy. 3 AM this morning i was awoken by a strange beeping coming from my night stand. My new cell phone was doing it. Fascinating as it was telling me the battery was in need of charging. You know just about every electronic device has a low battery indication of sorts. Even my battery powered smoke detectors do it. So as laws will certainly not work and i am actually having the same arguments with the Newtown Action Alliance on there agends. They wont work with this issue as well. DWI is against the law and people do it all the time. After every holiday weekend states post the number of DWI tickets issued and it is a lot. So if someone has a better ides post it. Have any of you walked away from your car with the head lights still on. Not me my car warns me and if i ignore it they go off by themselves. Just my thoughts on the issue at hand

There's no excuse to forget a child in a car. Look around, and PAY ATTENTION! I'm sure these peopleRead More aren't forgetting their Cell Phones, and Starbucks when they get out, or are probably too busy updating their Facebook status to remember their child..
