    Free egg rolls tomorrow.
    The haggardness of poverty is everywhere seen contrasted with the sleekness of wealth, the exhorted labor of some compensating for the idleness of others, wretched hovels by the side of stately colonnades, the rags of indigence blended with the ensigns of opulence; in a word, the most useless profusion in the midst of the most urgent wants.Jean-Baptiste Say

    I want Canadians to apologize for Celine Dion and I want Californians to apologize for Cher.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Re: California Apologizes to Chinese Americans

    I am a native Californian and I was once proud to tell people that, but those days are long past. California has become waste land filled with special interest groups, and home to a wildly liberal legislature that makes no sense what ever on a regular basis, this being a prime example. Like the idiotic apology for slavery it means absolutely not one damn thing. There is no one alive that ghad anything to do with anything that took place in the 1800s. Truth is if I remember my history correctly there were a few issues that had to addressed that were spacific to the Chinese who flooded into the state back then. One in particular was Opium dens that were all over and I believe can still be seen in a few historical locations along HWY 49 in Gold Country.
    I wish people would Stop this stupidity. There are absolute fools who think we owe Japan an apology for Bombing Hiroshima and Nagasaki ends the war. I fear they will eventually do it because they don't know the facts and history. They don't know that it saved as many as a million lives. But they call stupid people stupid for a reason.

    Let's get into the bones of this. Why do people, who have no direct responsibility, feel compelled to apologize for such things? What does it do for them personally? We all know that it does nothing for the actual victims, who are long dead and gone, so why the preoccupation with apologies for the sake of apologies?

    A group of American student are going to Japan to apologize for us dropping two atomic bombs to end forever a "WORLD WAR"!!! I only hope on their return trip they sail in to Pearl Harbor for a brief stay.

    Actually California should apologize to all Americans, and have their electoral votes cut in half.

    I would like to apologize for Cain's murder of Abel to everyone that may or may not be a decedent of Abel.

    It was an atrocious act and we will strive to do better in the future.
