Re: “Anti SB 1062 Fundraiser at JunXion Tonight

Oh puulease, this is just more of the (excuse the metaphor) backdoor bigot agenda which is the result of large scale corruption of republican state legislators selling their sorry assed selves to "the creators of wealth" businareligocruds sponsored and promoted by the Citizens United/Koch brothers whore supreme court justice Scalia. Yep, cause businesses are individuals, the megamoneycreeps can buy republicans to spew vile laws that promote exclusion, hate, greed and pollution while they cower in fear behind their patriotic Cayman Island loot and religious minions. Easier to get a camel to go thru the eye of a needle than a rich man to get into heaven. So, they want hell on earth for the rest of us.

Re: “Ask A Mexican!

While I am a great fan of the site I feel your view (and facts) concerning President Obama are narrow and former Pres.Bush are unfocused. Pres. Obama inherited the Bush legacy concerning Mexico. If you remember Dubyas favorite saying:" Mexicans do jobs that Americans don't want to do." Americans don't want to do jobs that pay substandard wages, that are hazardous and unsafe, no health benefits and where you can be fired just because they don't want to pay you. In addition, like most immigrant groups, there is the coyote like middlemen that take part or all your wages for lodging, transportation, food and so on. They have as much regard for their fellow latinos as the white corporate exploiters that made possible, safe houses, cross border recruiting, and transportation around the country. In addition these middlemen served as translators so they would cash checks, warn not to seek help from police, manage medical "needs" and so forth. When the appeasement crackdown inadvertently starting including the businesses illegally employing illegal immigrants they applied the "Texas solution." Since they had no rights, Union protection or representation from the "Uncle Joses" in the state or Federal gov. they were just dumped into the general populace. No place to stay, no jobs, no family, often no available family, they either had to find a way back to Mexico, turn to gangs or crime and they became far more vulnerable to deportation. So, spearheaded by the bigots, their former "Patrons", the ignorantly fearful and a very profitable border /wall building and recruitment program there became a perfect storm of increased deportation. If you start out treating people like slaves, if they continue to accept that idea as being even marginally ok then you aren't American or Mexican. The main thing has to be, don't forget, don't vote Conservative because Grandma went to church and Grandad was in the Marines. And for Gods sake don't ignore what is happening in Texas and AZ.!

Re: “The Latest Buzz: Mosquitoes, And How You Can Prevent Becoming Lunch

The most effective anti itching remedy that I have found is wetting the spot bitten and sprinkling Meat tenderizer (which uses a papaya extract), and making a paste that you can brush off after a minute or two. It apparently neutralizes the anti coagulant that the mosquito injects that causes the itching. Nothing else, like the store products, works so quickly.

Re: “John McCain Wants To Help You, Unhappy Cable Subscriber

Aside from JM being an anti environmental corporate lackey there are lot of us who do not like watching boring sports drivel, get a job ex sports commentators, talking heads, haters with opinions, endless news regurgitation , pop ins , ticker tape rerun, religious gumbas , reality shows, medical commercials,and last, but not the least: overweight sub intelligent radio shlock jocks who show why toads with mouths interchangeable with their behinds should never show a TV visual of themselves. Whew, if that doesn't show support JM, for being able to choose, then slap me like a monkey for not liking a banana when offered.

Re: “Timing of Wingspan's Community Letter is, Well, Interesting

Nattering nabobs of negativism! Quoting from Spiro Agnew, the only vice president who had to resign on Bribery charges, That puts Sally in the same era as: doddering dinosaur of disregard. Bet you don't even know what a nabob is. A nabob is much more likely to be on the Board. Assuming there are "probably excellent' reasons for a firing before the facts is just as dangerous as assuming the board or all its members are competent . Proof being former lost lawsuits. It is not the job of the board to engender lawsuits. Especially when they just have to act decently thru due process. Good management starts at the top. The board seems to be like the school boards in Texas. Anointed, not appointed. Just what is the criteria for being on this Board?

Re: “Timing of Wingspan's Community Letter is, Well, Interesting

I am sure none of us should be surprised, the future belongs to those who remember, not those who forget. Stonewall doesn't signify the same thing to the board. The board has always seemed to be run by those who want to justify their “log cabin republican'” mentality rather than the sacrifice, decency , and hard work of the people helping those in most need. The country club queens want to to ride in the pride parade without the peasants. This new "executive Director" SEEMS to have shown herself to be in the :Dick Cheneys’ Daughter business mode. This reminds me of the old saw that when a dictator farts, all below must inhale deeply.
