HAITI STILL HASN'T RECOVERED FROM THE EARTHQUAKE AND THE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC ISN'T LETTING THE HAITIANS CROSS THE BORDER
Link

Haiti and the Dominican Republic both share the same island.  They have the same weather and other natural conditions.

Haiti is a hell hole and the Dominican Republic isn't. 

Why is that the case?

See if you can figure it out from these facts from the CIA World Factbook:

The Dominican Republic has 9,823,821 residents.  Haiti has 9,648,924 residents.

73% of the residents of the Dominican Republic are mixed race.  16% are white. 11% are black.

95% of the residents of Haiti are black. 5% are mulatto and white.

Maybe you need more facts.  Just go to the CIA World Factbook and see if you can come up with other facts that might demonstrate some cause and effect about why the two countries on the same relatively small island are so different.  We'd like to hear what you come up with as a theory. Really.

Until we hear a reasonable theory, we'll rely on our belief that genes are us.

ARIZONA REPUBLIC RIPS LEFTY SHERIFF DUPNIK
Link

Dupnik is the lefty who has been whining about the right wing and Rush Limbaugh.  He also opposes Arizona's law against illegal aliens.  Figures, right?

Dupnik reminds us of a couple of former lefty cops in Costa Mesa who sometimes used their positions to whine about similar things and who seemed to be  trying to stir up people into believing in some sort of right wing racist conspiracy whenever anyone spoke out about the problem of illegal aliens in Costa Mesa. 

And, we believe that there are still a few lefty cops and civilian employees like that in the CMPD. We call them "the clique."

COSTA MESA TAXPAYERS FOOTING THE BILL FOR OUT OF TOWN SPORTS TEAMS

The City of Costa Mesa leases sports fields on many elementary school campuses from the NMUSD to the tune of about $ 200,000 per year.

The City then lets some sports team organizers use those fields for free.

The rub 1:  Those sports team organizers charge their players to be on the teams and they apparently then pocket the money instead of paying some of it to Costa Mesa for the use of the fields.

The rub 2:  Some of these organizers are from Santa Ana.

The Rub 3: The way Costa Mesa's Recreation Division has set things up, Osama Bin Laden could get free use of our fields and the City Council wouldn't be able to stop him.

What the CM PRESS would like to see: We'd like to see the regulations changed so the City Council has the final say on who can and who can't use our fields and on what basis and how much they should pay.

And, we'd like to see the City at least break even on the use of these fields, instead of picking the pockets of taxpayers of Costa Mesa.

REMEMBER HOW LEFTIES CLAIMED THAT 'ANTI-SEMITIC' CONSERVATIVES DROVE JARED LEE LOUGHNER TO HIS SHOOTING SPREE?

And, have you noticed that this talk has died down?  Wonder why?   Maybe that's because, according to Mother Jones, Loughner is Jewish.

Those are our opinions. Thanks for reading them.

  1. We just encountered the flipside of this coin while trying to reserve a location for a group of kids to practice a drama project through a local kid organization. To get authorization to use any NMUSD facility addresses and personal information must be supplied on each child. Unfortunately our parent organization forbids releasing this information.

  2. I think your suggestion of having the City Council have the final say on usage and fees would have worked for us.

  3. To M: We've checked, and the city won't release information on the kids to the public, so you might let your parent organization know this. The city needs the information to verify addresses.

  4. You had me on the out of town sports teams until you made a point of mentioning that some were from Santa Ana. So what? Some of them are from Newport, too. Bottom line is that regardless of where they came from, no one makes a profit while are losing money.

  5. To Anonymous 4:56: The point about Santa Ana is that it is not our "sister" city as is Newport Beach with whom we share the same school district and many other things. In fact, Costa Mesa and Newport could be rolled into one city and probably should be.

  6. Mr. Millard, please. Loughner's mother is Jewish. That does not make him any more Jewish than you. To be Jewish, he must obey Jewish law, not just be born to a Jewish mother. To be Catholic, or Protestant or Muslim, you have to follow those respective laws - it's the same everywhere. How do you know that he has not converted to Catholicism or renounced all religion and declared himself an atheist? Call me crazy, but his affection for Mein Kampf tells me he is not Jewish.

  7. To Just the facts: Under Jewish law, one is a Jew if one's mother is Jewish. Generally, under Israel's Law of Return one can be a Catholic or anything else, but one is also still a Jew and can claim Israel citizenship.

    As far as Mein Kampf goes, a friend of Loughner told the press that Loughner was into shocking people and that his mention of Mein Kampf was in that vein.
