"Recognizing that the right to one’s sexual identity is one that all humans should haveRead Morei s an essential step."___________________Carl, let's assume you win the District 3 seat on the LAUSD School Board and it comes to your attention that one of your 40 year old teachers sexually idenfies himself as a 17 year old. Does he have a 'right' to a relationship with an actual 17 year old? Would you support him? If not, what would be your basis for denying him his sexual identity? http://northridge.patch.com/groups/carl-petersen-iiis-blog/p/soul-searching http://northridge.patch.com/groups/carl-petersen-iiis-blog/p/time-for-a-change_846799e5 https://www.facebook.com/groups/ChangeTheLAUSD/

Komfort, the reason why you are not getting an answer is that the question does not make sense. Read MoreYo u know that any teacher is not allowed to have a connection with their students. And, everyone agrees with that. And, everyone agrees with the law that minors need protection. That is why your question is a non-question. Everyone agrees with the laws that are in place. Hopefully that answers your question.

Thank you for providing this forum to have a serious discussion about a very important issue. TheRead Moref irst thing that people need to understand about The Tea Party is that there is no single Tea Party organization. The Tea Party is a grass roots movement of ordinary Americans from all walks of life. There are a variety of organizations that are working towards similar goals. You asked for links, so here are just a few: http://www.teapartypatriots.org/ ; http://www.teaparty.org/ ; http://www.teaparty-platform.com/ ; http://www.teaparty911.com/index.htm I have seen absolutely NO evidence that any of the nationally prominent “Tea Party” organizations espouse racist ideals. In fact, they are demonstrably color blind. Are there some racist people that also happen to identify with The Tea Party? Sure. Pick any political organization in our society and you will lots of racists. That fact does NOT support the implication that these organizations support or condone racism. Arguably, Tea Party organizations are much more inclusive than the NAACP, the Congressional Black Caucus, La Raza or any of the left-leaning organizations that are devoted solely to the advancement of one group of people over another using skin color or ethnic origins as the basis for inclusion. To become a "bonafide" participant or beneficiary of any of the aforementioned organizations, you have to have black skin or be of Hispanic heritage. How is defining ANYONE’s membership in a political group based solely on their skin color or ethnic origins not the very definition of racism? Imagine the media reaction if an organization emerged tomorrow entitled “National Association for the Advancement of White People”. To claim that Tea Party organizations promote racism, you have to ignore the people of color that are either leaders within various Tea Party entities or solidly support Tea Party ideals. Just Google any of the following prominent Americans and you will find each of them to be staunch conservatives that proudly support core Tea Party values and ALSO just happen to be black: Herman Cain, Allen West, Lloyd Marcus, William Owens, Deneen Borelli, David Webb, Charles Lollar, Dr. Ben Carson, Mia Love, Larry Elder, Mike Hill, Thomas Sowell, Elbert Gulliory, Walter Williams and Mike Hill. And, of course, prominent Hispanics such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio openly support the Tea Party and are very widely admired by Tea Party enthusiasts. Those that would argue that Tea Party supporters don’t like Hispanics or distain immigrants just because of their ethnic background are just delusional. In examining the stated “core beliefs” posted at http://www.teaparty.org/ (listed below), I find NO evidence of racism. In fact, all of these core beliefs are inherently color blind: 1. Illegal aliens are here illegally. 2. Pro-domestic employment is indispensable. 3. A strong military is essential. 4. Special interests must be eliminated. 5. Gun ownership is sacred. 6. Government must be downsized. 7. The national budget must be balanced. 8. Deficit spending must end. 9. Bailout and stimulus plans are illegal. 10. Reducing personal income taxes is a must. 11. Reducing business income taxes is mandatory. 12. Political offices must be available to average citizens. 13. Intrusive government must be stopped. 14. English as our core language is required. 15. Traditional family values are encouraged. The left leaning elements of our political spectrum needs for Tea Party supporters to be labeled racist so that they can demonize and marginalize them when it comes time to select our next set of leaders at the polls. That is the real reason this narrative is being echoed so loudly across the main stream media and throughout social media.

Mark need not apologize for his conservative views, which reflect those of hard-working peopleRead Moreevery where. The "TEA Party" moniker means "Taxed Enough Already." They, Mark, myself and legions of others believe that we can do a better job of managing our lives and the assets earned from our labor than can "the government." Perhaps that idea is alien to you, Mr. Petersen. By the way, you mention that your children have come through the LAUSD system. It would be interesting to know if they can work out a long division problem. Or read and understand a paragraph on, oh -- I don't know, why the planet Earth experiences seasons. Or are able to write a simple, five-paragraph essay. Mark knows that our system is broken. As long as there are men like him -- and strong women as well -- driven to right the many wrongs done by the sniveling liberals, he has my vote and the vote of everyone else that has reasonable intelligence. That may exclude you, of course.

I have nothing to hide. I have become personally acquainted with Carl in about the past year.

I also have connections to Sherman's main opponent last time, Howard Berman. I see Sherman's staff people quite frequently, most recently running into one at a meeting just a few days ago. I am an elected representative and Regional Vice Chair of the Los Angeles County Democratic Party and serve on the executive board of the state party. I am president of the North Valley Democratic Club, and Carl is a member. As for the question about the URL, I went to her blog and looked at the URL in the browser's location bar.

Stupid conversation. I know and respect both Lorraine and Mark. I've supported Mark in the pastRead Morean d am doing so now. Lorraine worked in a past campaign for Mark. So what? As for Brad Sherman, in 2006 I asked him how he, a Jewish man, could support Obama. His reply? "He's tougher on Iran than McCain." We know how that went. Then there was the time I sponsored a forum for local candidates. There was to be NO CAMPAIGNING. Brad was not interested in attending --- but he had no trouble in sending a flunky to stand outside the auditorium and campaign in his behalf -- until she was driven away. This showed me that Sherman is just not trustworthy. He built a network of fat cats here in the valley who support him only because he arranges for them to get contracts. Check out "VICA" yourself. You'll see.

My dad told us that if ever happened to be in the same place as him to don't freak out, yet don't srike up a conversation with the guy either. That's the totality of it, and all from memory 45 years ago. I was born in 1957. From my very first memories 1962,or 1963 the following five years to 1968 the world was different. My older brother and sisters were semi-hippies. Although there were much needed social changes, much of the late sixties looked dirty, and crazy...and fun as well. Flash forward 45 years...Now I am a semi-hippie? 1) Question authority ---yes definitely, that's how I discovered global warming is false. 2) Smaller government ..Yes. 3) government out of our business...yes. 4) The environment...yes I was there at the first Earth day, but now the loony's have taken over and ruined to the whole thing for control. A lot of the old hippies are now the establishment, professors teaching how to control everyone's business, actions socially, and now our thoughts....How the hell did that happen?
