"Here in Santa Barbara, we celebrated the day with a free-flowing exchange of spit in front of the Santa Barbara News-Press building, with “free speech” advocates, imported all the way from Orange County for the occasion, telling our very own “burrito eaters” and “beaners” to return — posthaste — to their countries of origin."
Unfortunately, there was some of that. There shouldn't have been. Neither should there have been others on the other side that were stomping on the American flag.
This issue should be about immigrating in accordance with the law and what rights are granted to those that break it as well as the issue of free speech. Race has no place in the discussion from either side.

Sounds like bad behavior from both sides.I will admit that a very few of these News-Press supporters that are taking the bait from the other side and making this issue about race aren't doing the cause any favors. This isn't about race. Never has been, never will be.

Being here illegally is a civil violation, however crossing the border illegally is a CRIMINAL one.
"Undocumented" is not accurate as most of these illegal immigrants have documentation, just not the right ones.

This is the last remaining bottleneck in the county freeway system. Schneider initially supported the SBCAG board and then did an abrupt about-face. With the freeway congestion, traffic that would normally be on the freeway gets diverted onto city streets. Traffic flows like water. If there is an obstruction on the freeway, traffic will flow on our city streets instead.
Without the foresight of future traffic flow, we would still have traffic lights at 101 and State. Without the freeway expansion, our city streets will carry a higher load of traffic and even more maintenance will be necessary. Expand the freeway now! Costs will only rise with any delay.

Cannabis CAN be a dangerous substance (contrary to what Loon says). The owners need to be responsible with Cannabis use and it's accessibility to children and animals just as they would be with alcohol or any other medicine or toxic substance.
Cannabis is even more dangerous when put in food where an animal or human can unknowingly ingest these substances. Jennifer is fortunate the insurance co. paid the claim on what was clear negligence on the part of the pet owner.

Fortunately, redistribution is not what the US voters want or need. (except maybe in CA where 1/3 of the nation's welfare recipients reside) Congress will never pass Obama's free community college initiative or the tax hikes he wants to slap on us in his upcoming "state of the union" message. Obama should be working on Keystone and entitlement reform instead. Instead he wants to proceed with his progressive tax and spend agenda instead.

The Dems hypocrisy with words is stunning.
By calling people that come here or stay here illegally "illegals", they say we are being racist.
Yet they say that people that don't like illegal immigration "hate immigrants" or are "anti-immigrant".
Anyone see any conflict there?

Fortunately, Obama's "freebees" are going to he a non-starter with congress as will be his tax increases planned for his "state of the union" speech.
His agenda is going nowhere as he is already a lame duck. Of course he will obstruct congressional legislation anywhere he can. We'll need to wait until January 2017 to get a president that can get this economy moving again.
