    Thank you, Law Enforcement!

    Folks, I’ll share the story again. About ten years ago, I asked a police officer what the reason was for Fallbrook’s spike in burglaries. Without hesitation, he replied, "Casinos. The casinos are attracting folks from L.A." (OK, so that may not be a verbatim quote, but you get the idea.)

    It’s the casinos, folks: they are attracting L.A.’s garbage. Thank you indeed, casinos.

    PS. Oh yeah, I almost forgot. The definition of a criminal is . . . stupid is as stupid does.

    Oh well.

    This guy will be out on bail and go right back to what he does best, taking what other people work for. Just ship him back to his home country. I can’t stand him.

    @3. What makes you think that "his home country" isn’t right here? What makes you believe that the suspect, Gabriella Vegara, is male and a non-US citizen? Do you happen to have any information not contained in this article that you’d like to share?

    In other words, it’s the end of free-market capitalism which has run its course. You can blame our corrupt government(s) and corporate America for that. What’s your point?

    @Lee: "My Point": It’s not the casino’s fault, maybe 10 years ago this was revelant, but not now, it’s way beyond that, and many factors, which I indicated above.

    Lee, if you supported "ANY" special interest lobbyist party and thier special interest politicians of "BOTH" Parties, then your partly to blame for supporting the slide of America..
    For example: NAFTA, Open Borders, Businesses who hire Illegals instead of American Citizens AND some of those same Businesses also Sending Jobs out of country for tax relief benefits, to skirt American tax laws, workmans comp. laws, etc..

    Yet those same Corporation, Banking, special interest lobbyist politicians (of both parties), will continue to raise taxes on whatever citizens are left, with jobs, to pay for their self centered interests and agendas: ie.. like paying for "non citizens" health care, food stamps and welfare.

    The Welfare they created in the first place by hiring Illegal Aliens and Non citizens. Instead of playing by the rules, legally, and hiring only those that can work, can pay taxes, etc.. legally..

    So please stop pointing the finger across the aisle if your supporting those same special interest lobbyist politicians, just because their not in the party of your choice..

    A lobbyist is a lobbyist is a lobbyist…..And when you point a finger at someone, you get 3 pointing back at you.. Your either part of the solution or part of the problem..

    Sadly enough, last election, it is bearing out on a daily basis, that the 2.5+ million WRITE IN voters seem to be the only one that truely seemed to be interested in Fixing the Problems in America..

    @Vet – you forgot to mention the generation of welfare families "built" by the pols; making more money not working than working , the glorification of the minimum wage worker – most (not all) lacking basic English skills, or part time teenagers) as the "hardest working Americans"; both sides are at fault – the Dems for wanting voters the Reps for helping their backers (big business) get cheap labor. My solution? throw everyone out and vote for representatives that represent YOU – blue collar? vote for a plumber. Merchant? Vote for the 7-11 manager. Get rid of the lawyers in office.

    If you must know how I feel about the idiotic concept called government, please feel free to read my comment # 25 @

    PS. Oh by the way, you forgot to mention the BIGGEST welfare system: the military-industrial complex. Just thought I’d remind ya . . . while ya collectin’ your cushy and guaranteed pension checks . . . that those hard-working Americans, many of who are working two jobs just to make ends meet, are funding. You’re welcome.

    PPS. @ #4 DR DR

    I just realized something: you described our military-industrial complex to a T.
