Drop the name calling, Matt

Why is it that people of your stated opinions can’t make an argument without calling people names or denigrating them?

Why can’t you state your opinion, support it with facts or barring factual support, state where the basis for your beliefs come from?

Read this article: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,275267,00.html.

While you may not like where I found it, Fox News, it only published the article.

You also may not like the conclusions of the article because they don’t match with yours.

It is written without emotion or invective, only science supported by data and facts.

I also found it interesting in your commentary that the religious right has not been successful in getting legislation passed, to which you are correct.

What you didn’t note is that both the Republican and Democratic parties pander to their extremes, but rarely pass legislation that make their fringes happy.

The last paragraph in your commentary loses any credibility you were hoping to establish.

Comparing the religious right with the world’s religious radicals puts you in lock step with Rosie O’Donnell.

Why didn’t you add something about the government bringing down the World Trade Center?

Americans support immigration bill

The New York Times/CBS News poll just released shows two-thirds of Americans want illegal immigrants to be able to gain legal status (assuming the person has a good employment history and does not have a criminal record) and for the U.S. to create a guest worker program.

This is much along the lines of the pending legislation in the U.S. Senate, called the STRIVE Act.

Urge your legislators to support this legislation, please.

It is practical, fair, and urgently-needed.
