    As much regulatory action as required for a “Corporatist” country!!

    The biggest problem with ethnic studies is that WASPs are unwilling to celebrate the diversity of cultures coming to our country every day.

    These academic programs began as a response to the racism and bigotry of the 60s & 70s. They were necessary then, and they are necessary now.

    Only fools are quick to violate academic freedom in the name of out-dated “melting-pot” myths of the past!! Shame on the 70% of Americans who think that AZ acted in the best interest of their state, our country and humanity!

    Rand Paul is already dodging the issue of the 1964 Civil Rights Act in regards to requiring businesses to integrate.

    Hey! pscheater!! Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar. Free enterprise without rules is like a football game without refs. You’re free to say whatever!! And I’m free to agree, disagree, or take offense. Too many sell orders at one time is not just a computer glitch!! Countries that hide their profligate spending need to be held accountable for hiding their debts!

    As long as BP is in charge in the Gulf, Republicans have to take the blame by default!

    Bill doesn’t understand the connection of Cheney with Halliburton defying regulatory procedures. When Cheney left Halliburton, it was failing big time. Included in Cheney’s energy policy which was installed within days of taking office, was Halliburton being offered no-bid contracts for everything from oil operations in the Gulf to Katrina, Iraq and Afghanistan.

    While in office, Cheney received a check for $200,000.00 every month. I’m sure he is still getting his check now. Maybe if Bill and Andy actually read books, periodicals and newspapers instead of watch “Faux News Channel, they might understand the meaning of current events in light of the corruption set in motion my tricky DICK.

    The product of an institution run by men in dresses.

    Somehow I think that it is impossible to have Obama’s boot on BP’s neck when he is in BP’s back pocket!

    There was a big difference between the British East India Company and the Dutch East India Company LTD. The {British} East India Trading Company was given a monopoly on all trade carried on by the colonies in America.

    It is ironic that the “Tea Party” is using this metaphor as the reason for their existence. The ultra right-wing corporations owned by the Koch brothers has funneled most of the money for the buses, signs etc. for the purpose of blaming the Obama administration for the national debt and the deficit.

    There is little that the transnational corporations support for the current Tea Parties resembles with the historic fight against the monopolistic East India Trading Company.

    Goldman Sachs helped Greece hide its lousy debt so that it could qualify for entry into the European Union. Now that the truth is known, some very unhappy European countries are having to hold up the Greek Parthanon in Athens. It is obvious that Greece can’t even help do that!

    I’m am happy to see that this toon has rattled a few fascists like Church and Nandy. They are unaware of the reason why immigrants without documents risk their lives every day to come to the USA.

    Jesus’ first sermon in Nazareth and his vision of the “Last Days,” in Matthew 25,show his concern for the poor, the sick, the naked, the hungry, the oppressed, and imprisoned were all he wants us to care about. The Statue of Liberty reminds us that the world sees the U.S. as the place willing to welcome the “tired, the poor, the huddled masses yearniing to be free.”

    The condemnations by the above commentators prove what they think about the Bible’s call to “love justice” and walking “humbly” with God. A nation which keeps faith with its values need not worry about protection from the poor.

    One final thought about hospitality. Jesus reminds us that the true sin of Sodom was its violation of the “Law” of hospitality.
