Affirmitive action, baby! Don't hire the best person for the position, just hire the right color person. Look how well it's worked out so far. At least someone is feeling good about themselves and that's all that matters to us taxpayers......

I think its great when mothers are forced out into the work world out of economic necessity. But maybe its time to re-evaluate the wisdom of allowing women into the public realm. They may be nice enough, but they end up over their head. Sometimes theres exceptions. Like Sarah Palin who excells in her Fox role as sexy carnival barker. But I'm talking mostly about women as affirmative action appointees and electees in the Democrat Party. They just dumb everything down. It makes me want to vomit, if you want to know the truth. No it doesn't, not really. Mitt, can you help me out here?

I am a Hispanic and I am PO'ed that so many left-wing loons are always thinking about any issue in terms of race? We of course know that the reason is to rally thier base to vote for left-wing loon candidates.
Most people probably didn't even know, or care, about Nadia Lockyear's race until this loon from the Hispanic Chamber injected race. He would have been much better to have not brought it up because now a number of folks will think "well, there's another Hispanic doing dope and not taking care of her kid".
BTW, when are the cops going to interrogate Bill Lockyear about Nadia's claim that he was the one that hooked her on dope?
And, BTW, when is child services going to investigate whether the Lockyear's child should be taken away from them because they have demonstrated they are unfit parents?

El Hermano seems to be a very trustworthy man who is probably a loyal worker. Please go easy on his poor grammar and "reasoning." I would certainly trust him to do yardwork (provided under proper supervision) or clean out our stables.

Let's be careful not to do any profiling here! But, of course it is important that we not change the "demographics" of the Board without voter input, so we'd better appoint someone with the same color hair, the same type of "addiction", one abused child,and higher political connecions. That should satisfy everyone!
And, that would NOT include any former shop-lifters!
NOR, any former assembly-members!! Hopefully, there will soon be one more "former" one soon, so we can move that topic,also, off the front page!!

Oh you perfect people who throw your stones... be careful they may just hit you. As for Nadia, thank you for re-arranging your priorities .. raising your son and taking care of yourself. The job is a job, but your family is your blood that need you healthy. Your family is the one that will encourage and remember you.
