Protesters In Murrieta Turn Back Buses With Migrant Families

JohnO, the issue will be what you are willing to give up - not which benefits of other citizens you want to cancel. Maybe you could let us know how much extra funding you added to your Federal and State Income taxes this year. There is an accommodation for this in the tax systems.

Protesters In Murrieta Turn Back Buses With Migrant Families

To those of you in favor...
Which of your federal benefits are you ready to give up? Social Security? Obamacare? FDA safeguards? Border Security? Coast Guard rescues? Interstate Highways? EPA? , etc.

The money needs to come from somewhere, maybe you want it all and you can't wait to double or triple your federal taxes to have it all.

Why just Central American children? What about the poor kids in the Congo, the MidEast, China, Tibet, India, Romania, and the rest of the world? Why not convert our military transportation capabilities, land, sea and air into immigration carriers? They could "save" millions and bring them to the promised land.

The end result will be a "leveling of the playing field". Yes, your dreams will come true and the US will at last be a third world nation. Congratulations!

SDG&E: Record Power Use Predicted This Summer In San Diego

Don't worry. There will be a few brown-outs and threats to reduce power just prior to a large rate increase request. That request will be desperately approved and the SEMPRA/SDGE stock holders will live happily ever after.

Duck- Maybe you should pay his bail and have him over to ""decorate" your home and neighborhood.

San Diego Airport Seeking Public Opinion On Long-Term Plan

Maybe we should use all of the Port Authority's budget on a consultant's report about moving the airport to Miramar. Oh, what? We already did that several times? Maybe we should have them survey all the residents of Mira Mesa, Scripp's Ranch, UTC, University City, North Clairemont, La Jolla, Penasquitos, etc. All built long after Miramar started operations. They complain about the noise now, what does the "brain trust" above think will happen when the residents are faced with a constant, never ending stream of multi engine jet airliners?

It won't ever happen, get over it. How about the brilliant plan to build a "Bullet Train" to El Centro and put a giant airport out there? Oh no, where would we put the windmills and mirror farms for clean electricity.

Maybe our airport will max out and help put a reasonable limit on growth here in the San Diego area. Along with the water shortages, limited power options, limited space, etc.

Muslim San Diego Residents Call For Halal School Lunches

Hand out the key to an old American custom - brown paper bags. Each speciality requirement can be met by filling the bags at home.

Schools are for education. If the kids' homes need extra support let the "safety net" organizations provide for them at home, and include the brown paper bags!

Props. B & C: Barrio Logan Plan Goes Before Voters

As the state government does all it can to run middle class jobs out of the state it looks like the council can't wait to join them. Perhaps if the council can move more businesses out and push more people into lesser paying jobs - or even better, onto the "entitlement rolls" they can pad their resumes for a run at state office.

Cynical? Yes! The middle class, blue collar jobs that were so abundant in the past have all but disappeared and it seems the trend will continue until there are only millionaires, waiters, gardeners and other service staff. A sad state of affairs.

Environmentalists Try To Limit Off-Road Vehicle Use At Ocotillo Wells

This is another example of the extreme environmentalists trying to outlaw access to public lands by anyone except their elite clique. The OHV area was set aside for use to appease the elites many years ago . The concentration of use would not be an issue if there was more area for legitimate motorized recreation.

This lawsuit is pure harassment meant to exclude rather than include public access. Their concern is not for the flora or fauna - it is simply another example of irrational environmentalism. They didn't stop the wind farms that scar the area south of Ocotillo Wells, they favor covering the desert with giant solar generation plants, but don't let anybody else dare try to use these already restricted public lands.

The OHV community has fought previous efforts to close access to the desert and hopefully they will prevail here. Just remember that the beneficiaries here are the lawyers. This will drag out for years, clogging the courts and reducing funds that could be better used for education and development of OHV activities.

New Bias Seen In Workplace: Treating Race As A Qualification

Is this all about "Back to the 50s?" All black teachers for certain schools, all white teachers for others? Add to that all Hispanic teachers for schools with a majority of Hispanic students? I had to move out of Virginia in the '50s because they closed the schools rather than integrate (modern diversity). My military dad decided that the family would be better off back in our home town of San Diego, of course he had to stay until his next transfer.

Now it sounds like restoring segregation is the new diversity and we will all finally be equal - what a bunch of hooey. Most of the discussions above seem to forget what it was like and think they have a new solution.

Qualified people of any color to fill necessary jobs. I use the term necessary rather than include the bloated academic beauracracy that has developed over the years. Quality at all levels rather than quotas.

What Would A 'Frictionless Border' Between San Diego And Tijuana Look Like?

Missionaccomplished- I'm not advocating doing away with border security, just stating that it needs to be tempered to allow commerce and travel to operate more freely. As a frequent border crosser I often suffer from waits that seem to defy reason. Last crossing was Monday a week ago with two hours spent in line at Tecate. This just seemed slow, other times the line moves faster, all at the whim of the CPB folks. You never know. If there is a goal shared by DHS, STATE, and COMMERCE I believe we would see a big improvement in crossborder travel.
