I am Orly Taitz, who was named by the media “The leader of the birther moveent (sic).” (“Squid Fry,” Feb. 17-23.)
Recent polls show that 60 percent of Americans and as much as 72 percent of all Republican voters believe that Obama was not born in this country.
Governor of HI could not find the original birth certificate, chief deportation officer of the department of Homeland Security stated that the SSN Obama is using was originally issued to another individual. Idiots writing for this paper do not understand, that posing with me adds votes to Republican candidates.
You can get more info on my blog OrlyTaitzESQ.com. If this paper wants to stop defrauding it’s (sic) readers and waNts (sic) to start writing the truth, they can call me for an interview at 949-683-5411. - Orly Taitz | via Web
I am NOT Orly Taitz. Since she has decided to darken the door of this publication, readers can now see for themselves that she is utterly unprofessional, resorting to name calling, invented polling, and non-existent “evidence.”
Taitz has lost every law suit she’s filed. She was sanctioned $20,000 by a federal judge for outrageous conduct in his courtroom, and this sanction has been upheld by the United States Supreme Court.
Hopefully, the state of California will do something about this woman. Such a move is long overdue. - Lawyerwitharealdegree | via Web
No Dollars, No Sense
SEIU understates the case (“Cuts to home care workers could mean life or death for some disabled,” Feb. 17-23).
The average cost for an In-Home Supportive Services recipient is $12,000 a year. It costs $50,000 a year and up for one year of nursing home care. The fact is that IHSS saves taxpayers hundreds of millions of dollars a year over the cost of nursing home care.
It also brings in billions more in federal matching funds. And the nearly 400,000 providers – along with recipients who are able to work – help local economies across the state.
Instead of cutting IHSS, we should be moving people out of nursing homes and into their own homes and communities with IHSS. - Stevefromsacto | via Web
My brother is a child molesting cleric. (“Alleged victim sues Diocese as Salinas police examine molestation reports,” Feb. 17-23). Like Fr. Ed, he’s charming, hardworking, charismatic and compassionate. He’s done an extraordinary amount of good to and for an extraordinary number of people. But he has also sexually assaulted and violated kids.
The two, sadly, aren’t mutually exclusive. - David Clohessy | via Web
Editor’s Note: Mr. Clohessy, of St. Louis, is director of SNAP, the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests.
The popular revolutions we are witnessing in the Middle East, while inspired by a desire for personal freedom and self-determination, are certainly sustained by a pervasive hunger pandemic, particularly among the world’s less privileged populations.
Since last December, skyrocketing demand for food and dwindling supplies have driven the global Food Price Index to new records. Supplies have suffered from catastrophic floods and droughts linked to global warming and from gradual depletion of groundwater aquifers.
Demand has been fueled by unchecked population growth and by diversion of massive amounts of grains into biofuel and meat production.
Hunger afflicts nearly 1 billion people worldwide, mostly women and children. It feeds massive popular migrations and unrest that, sooner or later, will affect us all.
Some of the causes of global hunger are beyond our personal control. But, as the world’s highest meat consumers, we have a special obligation to free up some grains for the hungry by limiting our own consumption.
With the broad availability of delicious and nutritious meat and dairy alternatives in every supermarket, there is no reason to delay.
Entering “live vegan” in a search engine returns lots of good guidance. - Mitchel Corbett | via Web
