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.

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.
Tayra Antolick July 13, 2014 at 03:56 pm
If I were my nephew John O. Antolick, I would say to all of you who have called him a bigotedRead More scumbag and the like, “Thank you! for call me those things. If I were my nephew, I would say “Thank you!” for deeming me worthy to be counted with those who, throughout history, suffered tribulation and died for their sincerely-held religious beliefs, the exercise of which is today constitutionally-protected. There is no such thing as the man that gives credence to the existence of God not being discriminatory. The First Amendment to the Constitution of the United States of America defends and protects the biblical principles upon which this country was founded (check out the early Congressional record at the Library of Congress). It protects and defends my nephew’s unalienable right to exercise his religion in his business and private life, and his right to disassociate from ungodly BEHAVIOR within those two realms. By definition, a Christian life is one that separates from what God defines as abominable BEHAVIOR. A Christian is required to discriminate as well as to love; these are not mutually exclusive. A Christian is commanded to shun BEHAVIOR that God has decreed as subject to discipline from His hand, and yet to love the doer of such BEHAVIOR. Those of you who raise the civil rights movement when talking about same-sex marriage are committing a logical fallacy. You are equivocating discrimination of a BEHAVIOR with discrimination of a NON-BEHAVIOR. If I were my nephew, God would prohibit me from discriminating against NON-BEHAVIORAL skin color, or NON-BEHAVIORAL ethnicity. THAT is what the civil rights movement was all about. I know because I lived through it. The endless repetition of that logical fallacy from “credible” media and academic sources does not make it valid. If I were my nephew, I would not only have the right but the duty to disassociate with the BEHAVIOR that is an offense to the ONE who is historically-acknowledged as the Messiah in the New Testament: Jesus of Nazareth. The way I would show love to the man or woman who engages in any abominable BEHAVIOR is to show him or her the way to obey God’s Law and escape the dire consequences of disobeying it, to show them that Jesus of Nazareth paid the ultimate price with His blood for that sinful BEHAVIOR, and to echo what He said, “Go and SIN NO MORE.” That is the “square one” of biblical love. If you shun that, you have deemed yourself unworthy of His great salvation. What HE says goes. No Supreme Court decision, state statute, or county ordinance can or will supersede that. By definition, a “bigot” is “a person who strongly and unfairly dislikes other people, ideas… a person who is obstinately or intolerantly devoted to his or her own opinions and prejudices; especially, one who regards or treats the members of a group (as racial [NON-BEHAVIORAL skin color] or ethnic [NON-BEHAVIORAL place of birth] group with hatred and intolerance.” http://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/bigot. If “bigot” includes the hatred of ALL IDEAS, then it would include hating those who support the 2nd Amendment, or those who hate murder, or those who hate Christian beliefs. If “bigot” includes hatred of all peoples who call the biblical patriarch Abraham their father, which includes Catholics, Protestants, Jews, and Muslims (the majority of the world population), then it appears that, by their own standard, all those who hurled scathing insults at my protestant nephew John O. Antolick are the ultimate bigots; and their insults are full of hatred, fulfilling what Jesus said that, if the world hated Him, the world would hate me, too. My nephew never hurled any hatred toward Desiree Mark; he wished her well, his discrimination was fair, not baseless. If I were my nephew John O. Antolick, I would say to all of you, “if you cannot protect me from consequences for disobeying God’s Law, then you cannot compel me to disobey it.” I think my nephew would do the same.

So many of you have drunk from the well of Relativism, and therein lies the path to Hell. The BibleRead More - the infallible word of God - is not Relativistic. It is absolute truth. It's not those of us who follow Christ who will levy the wages of sin , but it is God himself who will sit in judgment. He has given us the righteous path, as revealed through the prophets, and embodied in Christ, and written in the Bible, and it is he who teaches the right from the wrong, separates the saved from the condemned, and calls us to live a righteous life. If we are Christians, we MUST discriminate and we MUST distinguish goodness from evil. It is not always an easy path, but if we wish eternal life in heaven with God the Father and his Son our Lord, then we must choose. AND WE MUST SUPPORT THOSE WHO SO PUBLICLY AND COURAGEOUSLY CHOOSE, and support their businesses and their election to office and their legislative initiatives so that we can vanquish those among us who follow an unclean path. It is time for those of us who hear God's word to obey it, and though we may be persecuted, He is with us. IT IS TIME THAT CHRISTIANS STOP BEING FORCED TO LIVE UNCLEAN LIVES by those who dwell among us.
Wallst July 14, 2014 at 01:23 am
@ Bret Bingen - again, thanks for giving me the BEST laugh I had in awhile with your statement;Read More "These non-Christians should be treated like Jews and given their own land where they can do as they wish, but should not be among the God-fearing Christians of our Christian nation, for Americans are chosen by God as His people, and we must support those who through their businesses move us toward our Christian destiny". First, if you educated yourself, you would find that the founders of this country made SURE that the United States would NOT be a "Christian Nation". As far as the Bible, every Biblical argument against being gay has been debunked, biblically. I'm not going to do all the work for you, just look it up, it's not hard to find. Just remember that if you use Google to look up any information, you are supporting Gay Marriage, so you may want to do your searches on another engine. As you say in your latest comment; "If we are Christians, we MUST discriminate and we MUST distinguish goodness from evil". And you wonder why non-Christians feel the way they do TOWARD Christians? Think about it. This country is a secular country, whether you like it or not. We have laws that we all have to obey. There is still a separation of church and state last time I checked. And I'll say it again...if you want to live under religious rule, then move to Iran. You, and the right-wing crazies would love the laws of THAT land.

So , RDF you think that there should be consequences for actions. Yes , so do I. And I think I canRead More speak for most everyone else arguing similarly to me, that they also believe that there should be consequences. My belief however is that we all make mistakes in life. Some have more severe results as is in this case. My reaction is more about how you feel that it can never happen to you, and how this can only happen to stupid irresponsible people and that it's obvious to you given what occurred. I'll provide one more piece of anecdotal evidence that I dont think will be viewed as unique: I have a friend who had 4 kids. 3 went on to become successful professionals, and one became a heroin addict. My question to you is my friend a good parent or a bad parent? Is he an idiot or something else? For me it's not as easy an equation. But since you are very good at making determinations, I'll listen to your judgment. (and then after that, I hope your kids turn out the way you hope as sometimes , as they say , shit happens.

This continued increase is insane, college is already unaffordable to the average family, especiallyRead More with multiple kids going at once. It is unacceptable that 4 years of school equates to 10 or 15 years of debt, especially when many grads are unable to find employment with a decent wage/salary.
