Wearing modest clothing or not doesn't mitigate rape. The underlying issues are alcohol, and a society where children are raised in a way that leads them to a life where they don't crave natural affection.

Our desensitized culture mixed with booze is a terrible mix, and this cuts through the gender polemic.

"Measure P is a small step in the right direction."

What further steps would you take?

I disagree DrDan: I think Bilwil is striking at the root of the problem.

@Bilwil: Party loyalty trumps ideological consistency.

The Independent, like the average voter in the United States, is so consumed by fear of the opposing party, that they will not dare to risk cleaning their own house so they stay quite and continue their blind allegiance to the Democrats.

It is very cliché to say that both major political parties are more or less the same, but it is true. Your post is spot-on, but the sheep will run and support the Political Machines of their respective parties.

I have heard it said that 85% of the American public are clueless, 10% understand what is going on but are afraid to rock the boat, and only the remaining 5% will actually try to effect change.

Based on the numbers I see of election results, I would say this is true.

I have a question for Mrs. Capps: How is supporting the Patriot Act and the NDAA (National Defense Authorization Act) fighting for our rights?

How do you reconcile the NDAA with the 6th Amendment?

As a side note: What is with all the bike riders that I see on the freeway, even at night on occasions?

I started seeing this a couple of weeks ago. How long before this trend turns tragic?

Hilarious. People re-arranging deck chairs on their sinking ship while fighting over their placement.

Here is my report, as one who commutes from Lompoc: As of the start of this school year, the congestion on the 101 southbound by Patterson is even worse than in years past.

I will let the experts figure that one out.

Msmarkonis: Seriously, I can't tell if your post in on the level or not but if it is, can you simplify what you are trying to say?
