I live in Southern California. Marijuana will be legalized on the next ballot here in California. WeRead More are smart Citizens here in California. There is a reason that Marijuana is on our planet. Remember it is a plant. Here is my opinion. God created this Miracle plant for a reason. Do people not understand the medical benefits that it provides? No, Not unless they have tried it. Most of our population that is against the legalization of Marijuana. Have never even tried it. So how can they give their opinion on this matter. The answer is they can't. How could they? Remember they haven't even tried it. Social costs? What social costs? There is none, Zippo, Zero, Nada. And as far as the benefits go. Look Are we not living in a screwed up economy right now in California? The answer is Hell yes we are. Would the taxation money be beneficial to our Economy. Hell yes it would. It is alright if the tax seems to be a little high. Because eventually it will go down. I as an American Citizen I will due my part and vote yes for the legalization of Marijuana. Taxing Marijuana is the right thing to do. Because the money that is generated through it's sells, Will benefit our whole society. It is a total no brainer. I am actually very surprised that California wasn't the first state to legalize the sale of my favorite plant. I could go on for days about this subject. But I won't bore you to death. I have to go now. I need to go smoke a little pot right now. I hate talking about this subject. It is a waste of my time. Because ignorant people will never understand the power of this so called drug. Drug? What? Marijuana is not a drug. It is a plant. It is not made out of different chemicals. Like drugs are. I'm tired I am going to bed now. Good night all. John B.

Maybe they should put that $2.5M into the schools where it is desperately needed instead of wastingRead More it on stupid signs/stickers/and campaign "mixers". Just a thought.

Roughly half of Americans who pay no Federal income tax do so because they simply don't earn enoughRead More money. The other half doesn't pay taxes because of special provisions in the tax code that benefit certain taxpayers, notably the elderly. Stop spewing your twisted lies.

Ridiculous nannies. How many wood burning fireplaces are left in SoCal? I sure feel safer withRead More this BAN in place. Maybe they should worry more about the dope growers and transients setting wildfires than an occassional fireplace.

I also think he should use his executive power and the bully pulpit to do whatever he can about theRead More minimum wage. But, I think it should be about more than just raising the minimum wage. How we do the minimum wage is completely screwy. Instead of one blanket wage set as the "minimum," there should be a tiered approach, with teenagers who only need jobs for experience and to make a little pocket change earning a lower minimum than older workers who need to earn a living and support families. And there would need to be laws in place to ensure that the differential didn't result in the older workers being discriminated against in hiring decisions as a result of their higher wages.

Catherine ... regarding your last piece of advice ... "Don't give up" ... you may findRead More this quote from Andrew Sullivan following last night's SOTU interesting: "One aspect of his personality and his presidency is sometimes overlooked – and that is persistence. He’s been hailed as a hero and dismissed as irrelevant many times. But when you take a step back and assess what he has done – from ending wars to rescuing the economy to cementing a civil rights revolution to shifting the entire landscape on healthcare – you can see why he believes in persistence. Because it works. It may not win every news cycle; but it keeps coming back. If he persists on healthcare and persists on Iran and persists on grappling, as best we can, with the forces creating such large disparities in wealth, he will look far, far more impressive from the vantage point of history than the news cycle of the Twitterverse sometimes conveys."

That was the most insensitive bit of writing that I have read in a long time. One wouldn't evenRead More know that his name was Michael Reagan until the last paragraph - only that he is the adopted son. Good Grief. As a Republican, I'm embarrassed.
Don Smith January 13, 2014 at 10:33 pm
Big surprise ! He is a right wing commentator ...big deal he is supporting a fellow RepublicanRead More someone like Nestande. Look Nestande and his fellow GOP legislators made up a fake "Covered.CA" website to trick people with lies and misinformation about the Affordable Care Act. All done with taxpayer money. The man is not fit to represent us in Congress.

Does Mayor Aguilar condone the Redlands PD militarization? Redlands PD just acquired aRead More Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) Vehicle without city council approval or discussion. If Mayor Aguilar condones the militarization of local police it is alarming and not who Redlands or the US needs in Congress.
