“Those who participate in these criminal enterprises often use threats, intimidation, and even physical force to collect debts and oftentimes charge usurious interest rates on outstanding debts.”
Is the Queens DA here trying to describe illegal bookmaking or Mortgage Forclosure practices by the Banks we bailed out?

Dear random never before posters who wont replay cause they don't exist despite their kids being murdered after being raped and long time FBI agents who we are supposed to take their word for their resume......Hope you are being paid well by your PAC.
This is a managerial accounting problem in a state with a budget crisis, not a moral problem. Life in prison $ < death penalty $.

Presupposing of course that we care & that "we" have Children.
All snark beside, I support education as it statistically (for you partisans) lowers the incarceration rate. The question still stands beside the above diatribe, will prop 30 increase education funding? Yes it will. Will prop 30 funding be restricted to education funding? yes, if you consider funding pensions for public teachers education funding HOWEVER, this money would come out of the education budget elsewhere if it isn't passed. Hold you nose if you vote for this.

Great, so people can get killed in a wreck by plowing into a roadblock at the end of an offramp instead of on the freeway..
Great, so we can have DUI's increase by twentyfold through Montecito.
Your lack of wisdom is apparent young padawan.

I would have if I was actually hurt, just bruised a bit. I would have been hurt if she hadn't stopped before rushing through a right hand turn with me in the firs half of the cross walk. I actually was making a cogent point lost on the young lady regarding where exactly she was and the potential consequences. Then again she could have probably just have claimed insanity and had an expensive lawyer get her off.

Hi Carson & welcome to SB,
In short time you will come to realize that the issue here is less about posted speed limits (although you raise an interesting point) and more about a pervasive attitude of entitlement.
People, particularly those growing up in their own myopic dystopia as evidence by one local gal lifting me off my feet in the crosswalk at Garden and Anapamu with her daddy's SVU and then being petulant after I told her she was luck I wasn't one of the old folks from next door at Casa Santa Barbara, simply don't care about the safety and wellbeing of others when they are in a "hurry".
In the minds of these types of people, as unfortunately prevalent as they are, they are always right and you are just in their way.

Irrationality is the concern here for the Monsantos of the world. Indeed, our culture loves a great conspiricy theory and Genetically Modified Food is a fertile subject for an infertile Mind.
Although I will not get all Mendelian as surg has, it is true that not only have Americans been eating GMF for 17+ years according to the NYT but it is very difficult to prove a detremential link to a given health issue here. People should be much more concerned about the amount of Crap they ingest from the likes of Fast food Restaurants.
I will agree that pretty much the best reason to vote yes for this is to attain a degree of transparency to make a better informed choice; such is the American way or at least is should be.

Just another hack subserviant to a corporate adgenda.
Perpetuator of half truths and pre scritped narritives. Might as well be Chris Mathewes.
Just another talking head, albeit one who makes it "special to be part of her club" on the TV, nothing to see here libs, move along.
Perhaps one day we will have another Jim Lerer, only one who is capable of spontenously challanging canidates propositions with a degree of intelligence instead of letting a narritive run wild. Amercia, you deserve all of this.
Lib Darlings!, ignore the subtrafuge! Kiss Rachels posterior!
