Climate change is a global phenomenon. I just don't get Lois Capps on this. The steps we take here amount to no more than rearranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. Obama goes over to China and negotiates a deal that will allow China to continue to increase their carbon footprint while we must continue to decrease ours. How in any world is this going to solve climate change? So while we're driving electric cars and paying more taxes for cap and trade policies, China gets to increase their carbon pootprint. Do any liberals want to help me out by telling me how this makes sense?

These districts will be the new "redlines" of Santa Barbara. Real estate prices will be higher in certain districts. Insurance rates will be higher. Loans will be easier to get in certain districts. The zip codes will probably be changed to reflect the voting disrict.

Hopefully, this is the first step "forward" for the GOP. The stranglehold that the bible-thumping neocons have had on the party has turned away so many other people that would otherwise be interested in joining or have joined other parties such as the libertarian party. Hard working and rich Gays and Asians come to mind. None of those groups want their hard earned money to be flushed down the rabbit hole that the high-spending big government liberals would like to do. Many of them have been turned off by the religious anti-abortion, anti-gay stance the Republican party has taken. And just about any Republican politician (even Rand Paul) would suffer greatly if he came out as "pro-choice". If it is a "first step", the party has a long long way to go.

The Republican party should be about economic principles, not moral ones.

So you admit they persecute Jews, but it's the fault of the CIA in the 50's, 60's and 70's.

Fine, I'll accept that even if I don't necessarily agree with it. For whatever reason, they do persecute Jews and they have no sympathy for either Israel OR the Jewish people.

And why do you think 65% of Iranian Jews leave their home to immigrate?

I know, it's the weather, right?

It couldn't be because of a hostile environment for Jews in Iran, could it?

Loon - I don't know of anybody, anywhere who denies the Holocaust.

Well, read up then.

And yes, because the media told me. Unlike you, I don't get my information from my imagination.

Well f**k their hormones. They can make noise when everyone else can make noise. What makes students special that they can make noise at night when others can't?

Party between 8AM and 9PM. That's plenty of time to destroy as many brain cells are eardrums as they want.

Students need to be considerate of others just as others need to be considerate of students.

Does anyone denying the holocaust ever took place have a problem with Jews? You think?

That's not just an insult to Israelis, that an insult to ALL Jews.

The population of Iranian Jews has decreased by 65% in the last 30 years.

C'mon Loon, just admit it. You're only lying to yourself!

And just as construction noise can occur during certain hours, the same should be said for other forms of loud noise. I think the loud parties would be fine as long as they occur during daytime hours similar to any construction noise or other noisy activity.

It DOES strongly imply that the Jewish people should not be there. How the Mullahs want them to disappear is anyone's guess.
