    IF the children are legal....why not? Yes the parents are illegal, but do we grant scholarships to other children who's parents have broken the law?

    Well they already get free welfare here.

    I hate this state.

    Its easy being illegal or a darker shade than white around here - the state will finance your life while guys like me have to pay for it.

    Oh and they just gerrymandered my district. Now 90% of my district is ghetto.

    I'm moving to Wisconsin....

    "They are brown and he doesn't like that"?

    LOL! What a unbelievable stupid statement.

    It is better to keep your mouth closed and let people think you are a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

    I don't know why the progressives are so obsessed with race...

    Hell, I'm "brown" (at least in the summer) and as an Italian I get confused with being Mexican/Spanish all the time...

    I've never once have felt as if I was the victim of racism..

    Actually, one time when I was like 21 (or around that age) I was training to be a bartender and some lady said: "amigo I need another el beero" Then I started laughing in my mind and acted like what she was saying confused me.... I kinda gave her a look like I didn't understand what she meant. Then 10 minutes later I was talking to one of the bartenders in English and she walks up to me, says sorry then gives me a dollar...

    I was kinda insulted by the dollar itself. I wasn't insulted by her comment but I became insulted when she gave me the dollar.

    But yeah, thats all I got as a person who is perpetually confused with being a Latino.

    With all this said I find the racism assertions highly difficult to believe.

    More political insanity that seems to be sweeping the nation. They must have got this fucked up idea from the dumb asses in California.

    Nick at least your state doesnt rank at the top for fiscal Insanity. But I doubt you take much comfort in being number two.
