We're surrounded by ultra-liberal whites who parrot the politically correct diversity-speak. They shun conservatives.
Even though we have non-Caucasian friends, certain topics are off limits—specifically, immigration.
Schultz says that California's rapidly deteriorating quality of life will eventually force her family to leave the state, despite their life-long ties to it.

The following paragraph shows what is wrong with the present-day Republican Party.
It's taken from Phyllis Schlafly's Eagle Forum website under "News and Notes":
"2008 REPUBLICAN PLATFORM VICTORIES: On immigration, the 2008 Platform clearly breaks away from both McCain and the 2004 Platform by calling for building the border fence, securing our ports, enforcing existing laws against 'illegal workers and lawbreaking employers,' requiring the use of E-Verify, deporting criminal aliens, denying federal funds to sanctuary cities, and refusing driver's licenses, in-state college tuition rates, and Social Security benefits for illegal aliens."
What I find sad is that Schlafly (and others) are oh-so-proud of this plank as if it means something.
But the party's nominee, John McCain, is not obligated to abide by this or any other language in the platform.
Why do these people expend time, energy, and money on efforts that don't mean anything?
People should be aware that Schlafly will rail about illegal immigration, North American Union, etc, but there she was at the GOP convention.
Morabito is a software engineer who last voted Republican in 1988 and this year leans toward the Constitution Party. His previous letter about McCain's immigration duplicity is here.

I live in Las Vegas and know a little more about odds making than most.
As of today, it is apparent that this week's financial meltdown has greatly harmed John McCain in the eyes of the wise guys. Barack Obama is currently a 2-1 favorite, up from 1.5 to 1 at the beginning of the week.
McCain's performance in the first debate actually increased the price against him.
If you are inclined to disagree, remember the old saying: "The house always wins."
One more solid indicator: Barack Obama Halloween masks are outselling McCain masks by about a 2:1 ratio. Historically, the November loser has never outsold the winner."Whispering Eddie" says he left a dead-end insurance job in New Jersey five years ago to wager on professional sports and play poker. He says that although he is only "a few cents" ahead, he's having more fun…despite the high illegal alien population.

Re: Today's Letter: A Missouri Reader Says McCain Milking War Record
Regarding letter writer William White's observation that McCain, working in his own interests, groups himself with Ted Williams and John Glenn in terms of heroism and aviation skills.
McCain has one not so small problem, however. He has little idea of how to fly.
Redner's previous letters about the unfairness of the "Fairness Doctrine", the social issues that immigration adversely impacts, New Jersey's terrorists, Obama on immigration and Mexico (not Russia) as where McCain should focus his attention are here, here, here, here and here.

Re: Joe Guzzardi's View From Lodi column Remembering Ted Williams
So for McCain to give the impression on ESPN's Mike and Mike in the Morning Show that he was close to Williams, is highly misleading and represents yet another deception from him.
