Lawmakers Weigh In On Migrant Transports To Southern California

It's also a crime to prevent government officials from carrying out government business.

The mob tea party fanatics are "illegal" themselves.

Half the crap Issa gets away with in Congress is illegal, look at the piece the NY Times did on him several years back. Yet, he's powerful enough to get away with it.

So we have illegals calling other people illegal.

That will get us far.

Peters Denounces Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby Ruling; DeMaio Responds

Mr. Scallon, the bottom line is that your trying to push YOUR religious views onto others, and I am offended by that.

Keep it to yourself.

If you don't want to use these medications then don't, but health insurance is part of a worker's compensation package - it's part of THEIR benefits, and employers have no more right to tell them what they can and can't buy with their health insurance than they can with their paycheck.

I guess you are lucky that we have a right-wing stacked SCOTUS that hands you victories like this, but all it is going to do is alienate women voters.

Contraception Coverage Still Required In California Despite SCOTUS Ruling

Benz, I'm not sure I understand your last comment. I am in favor of a single-payer system which cuts out insurance companies, I think that would solve the problem, but unfortunately we are stuck with an insurance based medical system for the foreseeable future.

Health care without insurance is cost-prohibitive to even people who make good solid upper middle class salaries.

Should companies also be able to dictate what their employees use their paychecks for? What they do on weekends?

Insurance coverage is part of a person's overall compensation package - it is negotiated up-front and is given to employees as part of an overall compensation package along with their salary and bonus schedule.

In fact, salaries are often tailored with these benefits in mind.

Should Hobby Lobby be able to tell people they can't use their bonuses to donate to Planned Parenthood?

An employees compensation - be it their health insurance, life insurance, bonus, all that is the EMPLOYEE'S compensation and there should be no moral obligation based on the employer's personal religious freedoms attached to it.

Protesters In Murrieta Turn Back Buses With Migrant Families

Palm Springs-based reporter Greg Lee who works for KESQ in Palm Springs was told this by the racist mob:

"GO BACK TO CHINA"

"GO EAT SUSHI"

That should tell you everything you need to know about this group of disgusting individuals.

Protesters In Murrieta Turn Back Buses With Migrant Families

Helm, there is speculation that the police and mayor had coordinated this with the protesters beforehand.

The police stood around and did nothing and accounts I have read suggest they actually led the crowd to be right in front of the buses.

There needs to be an investigation of the Murrieta mayor and police department, and I hope KPBS will follow this closely and ask questions about whether an investigation will take place.

Protesters In Murrieta Turn Back Buses With Migrant Families

JMiller224 is correct. The more this story digests and more information comes out, I am realizing just what a sham this is.

Most of these people were NOT locals, they were members of an organized anti-tax, anti-Obama tea party group who travels around to different areas staging these mob rallies.

Many of the same people were recognized from protesting in Escondido last week, so it's not a grass-roots uprising it's a very active group that travels around staging this nonsense.

Boots

I really don't understand Scallons comments,maybe he would enlighten us on The science of "distinguishing between contraceptives and abortifacients" which I believe might be a made up word.

-----------------

It's a moving target.

You can ask 25 people at what stage something is a "human life" and you will get 25 different answers.

The most fringe religious zealots claim male masturbating is abortion.

Basically M. Scalon is trying to pass of his opinion of where life starts as being scientifically proven or a scientific consensus which, it obviously isn't.

Peters Denounces Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby Ruling; DeMaio Responds

mission, what does this have to do with being gay?

And I think it's hilarious that you and M. Scanlon think this does anything for religious freedom.

This ruling has more to do with corporate power than with religious freedom.

The people that impacted by this ruling are a small group of extremely wealthy corporate owners, quit acting like this ruling gives religious freedom to the masses.

It doesn't.

And this "religious freedom" mantra is anything but liberal - it's being used as a dog-whistle by the far right to try and inject theocracy into our government.

MatthewCScallon, you are entitled to you religious viewpoints, but please don't pass them off as "science" - it's anything but

Peters Denounces Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby Ruling; DeMaio Responds

First of, I want to thank KPBS for obtaining feedback on this important court decision from local officials, particularly the ones running for office so we the voters know more about their viewpoints.

Mr. Peters gave a clear answer, and one I agree with. A huge plus for him.

Mr. DeMaio - I don't understand his "statement". It doesn't really say anything, is it some kind of code-talk? I mean it seems like he disagrees with the decision but then makes some vague comment about giving individuals more power over employers in healthcare without explanation of what he's referring to. Is it a jab at the ACA?

In typical DeMaio fashion, I think he's trying to play both sides by using political jargon.
