All the News That's Fit to be Tied

I have an axe to grind, but unlike the New York Times, I freely admit it.

I Like Latinos More Than You

Now that the Meg Whitman/Jerry Brown Hispanic debate is over California’s Spanish-speaking citizens must put their money where their mouth is. They must choose a governor who will reform state government and use the political system for the good of all the state’s residents. Jerry Brown would have you believe that even though he has been Governor, Mayor of Oakland and State Attorney-General he has had no part in developing the policies that have created the current state of affairs. He would have you believe he doesn’t know Gloria Allred, whose lawsuit, announced just five weeks before Election Day, is nothing more than a dirty trick to portray Whitman as anti-Latino. He does know Allred and they have an extensive history. As far as Jerry Brown is concerned Nicky Diaz is just like the other illegal aliens that cannot vote and he would like legal-residents who can to vote for him. Meg Whitman is right. Jerry Brown is just more of the same. His promise to clean up the mess he helped create is just a platitude. Today’s Spanish-speaking American is no fool. Those who have chosen to become legal citizens and have successfully assimilated have earned the fruits of this great country. Those who have chosen to act illegally, as they old saying goes, get what they pay for. Voters must choose wisely; our country depends on it.
