Fat people don't like being told they're fat. Oliver's approach isn't heavy handed, this country has simply become a coddled, PC wimp-mess.

The ACLU is smoking something. Don't focus on driving without a license violations? Are they insane? I understand that they're trying to spin it so that it looks as though we're being burdened in a time of economic downturn by "minor" things but guess what ACLU? I'd be willing to be money that in the current no tax environment, immigration enforcement would probably be the ONE thing a lot of us would be willing to pay increased taxes for. And I'm speaking as the first generation born in this country to LEGAL South American immigrants.

@dee gee just because business prefers hiring illegals because they'll work for slave wages doesn't make it right. If the jobs "American's won't do" paid a fair wage people would be lining up for them. I would gladly pay more for food harvested by American citizens.

Why is this question even being asked? What part of ILLEGAL is so hard to comprehend?

@Francisco 25% is admirable considering it was closer to 5% less than a decade ago. They also pretty much own the tablet market.

how stupid do they think people are? Just because an overlay is put on the screen doesn't change the fact that the machines bombard people with radiation and the machine still makes the naked image of the body - they may slap a cartoon over it so that papers will write reassuring tone articles such as this one, but the image is still there, accessible, and saved.

Wanna know why immigration is a black and white issue? Amnesty has been done before, every time with a promise it would be the last one. No one's buying it anymore. It's also difficult, if not impossible to have any sort of compassion for "families being broken up, humiliation, etc." Illegals made a CHOICE to come here and put whatever current/future family they have in this situation. I certainly understand that they're coming here to work but their very presence continues wage suppression and under the table employment - they are most certainly stealing jobs from Americans and at the very least are continuing to provide a steady stream of slave-ish labor that is infinitely more attractive to business than having to pay someone minimum wage and follow workplace/safety regulations. Immigration raids need to sharply escalate, AS DO SEVERE EMPLOYER SANCTIONS. I don't think anyone who is against illegal immigration will deny that businesses are at fault as well, but that still doesn't mean we as taxpayers must take on an ever increasing, unsustainable burden. Want to really do something about immigration? How about ending the war on drugs that has enabled the cartels to take over Mexico and corruption there to run rampant?

The big flashing red hand isn't enough? Maybe if enough pedestrians got hit by cars because they couldn't understand the sign, they would...(wait for it)...learn to speak English?

The premise of this opinion is flawed. Let me tell you why it will feel like a tax hike. When it was first increased, I voted to oust Davis. When the first round of "temporary taxes" came around, I bit¢hed and complained about the increase and made a note of how much it was increased and when it would be returning to normal. I'm waiting for these tax hikes to expire. I am NOT used to paying the raised taxes. If nothing else, this article clearly illustrates the way things work in state government: 1. Overextend spending 2. Cry gloom and doom 3. Temporarily raise taxes 4. After first year, claim everyone is now used to the taxes so letting them go on won't feel like a tax increase 5. ...PROFIT

@uknow Chelsea King's parents have their answers. Mitrice Richardson's family has nothing but unanswered questions. And god bless them? After what has happened to their family? Really? Hasn't he done enough? If you lose a child and have no answers I hope you "learn a lot" as well.

all they've done is cost my local grocery story my business. I live within 1 mile of orange county and will be shopping there once this ban goes into effect. What's more, I will be contributing more pollutants to the earth with the extra mile I will now drive. Great job supervisors!

@realist There is no credible theory that this is a gang initiation rite. Shots from and to a moving vehicle with all hitting their intended target? Gang members ("recruits" at that) are not famous for their marksmanship. Anyone trying to say this is a gang initiation is probably of the same mindset of those responsible for the hi-beam flash gang initiation myth (yes it's a myth with no documented cases. Ever.)

Gotta pay for those illegals getting in-state tuition somehow!

How's that going to work with prop 26 specifically requiring that such fees be put to a vote? Is surcharge the new word that we must define as a tax word?

They'll probably also be exempt to the 15% tuition hike that the caused to be imposed on the legal students. What part of illegal do people not understand?

Meg Whitman lost because she Hispandered, plain and simple. She talked a big game on illegal immigration to beat Poizner in the primary, then did a 180 on her policy and put out a bunch of touchy feely spanish commercials.

Too late Meg. You hispandered and lost. Jerry Brown is a horrible candidate but what you see is what you get. You however, are a PHONY. A BIG FAT PHONY.

“As a parent, one thing we expect is when our kids go to and from school, they are safe,” said Villaraigosa. “We breathe a sigh of relief today that there were no serious or fatal injuries to the children.” But it's totally OK about the pedestrian?

What terrible analysis. It's pretty obvious from the figures that corporate tax contribution has gone down due to businesses leaving the state, leaving more and more of the state's revenue to come from ever increasing taxes on everyone else.

What I'm gathering from this article is that this guy is doing his job against increasingly brazen criminals with no respect for law enforcement. Nice to see his aim is improving.

If I don't get my free, convenient bags that I re-use around the house, I certainly won't be filling my car with extra crap (reusable bags). I won't be able to shop for more than what I can carry out in my hands or a single bag, meaning I will have to make many, many more car trips to the market to buy my groceries. All that C02 being spewed needlessly because of this idiot law. This law has nothing to do with eliminating plastic bags. It's about opening up a new revenue stream under the guise of saving the environment.

To anyone who wants to try and compare this to the Civil Rights Movement - there's a big difference between civil rights being denied to CITIZENS OF THE UNITED STATES and enforcing laws against ILLEGAL ALIENS.

PETA also euthanizes the majority of the animals they take in. Ethical treatment of animals my eye.

@PCT the fact that people might die doesn't seem to bother the state worker unions that have yet to accept a layoff, have fought the furloughs tooth and nail, and continue to believe that they're entitled to ridiculous and unsustainable pensions. We're taxed enough already. These cuts need to happen.

Hey Jip Jow, why don't you try typing "corvette crash test" into google. Corvette's are pretty safe cars. Fiberglass body panels do not mean that the safety cage is made of plastic and its obvious from the fact that the corvette was upside down that this was a rollover; the roof section is the weakest part on ANY car, which is why cars on race tracks have roll cages. Don't blame the car, blame the idiot driver who looks to have crammed 3 people into a two seater and drove way faster than his skill level allowed.
