I saw a film clip on the Beck show that showed a young Mexican or Hispanic man ranting in a speech that he could not be an illegal immigrant in California because California was stolen from Mexico and belongs to Mexico. I'd be a little worried if I was Mexico, if they think they have problems now, if we give them California in its present condition it would bankrupt their country.

Alex Sink, Rick Scott Florida Governor Debate Part 4JOHN KING: We're back with the candidates for Florida governor, Republican Rick Scott, Democrat Alex Sink. We talked a bit earlier about the UK Immigration Adviser Arizona (just click the up coming page) Attorney Arizona, and many states saying after this election they may try and copy it in their states. Another law Mr. Scott that a lot of conservatives want to copy is a new Nebraska abortion law. It essentially tries to redefine the abortion debate by saying the standard should not be viability, when the fetus can live outside the womb, but when the fetus can feel pain. The Nebraska abortion law sets that at 20 weeks. Would you support such a law and sign such a law into law here in the state of Florida?

The next question was from a gentleman who was curious as to who denied security to the consulate in Libya and why. Obama dodged the question by saying how much he cares about the people who were killed and their families. His plan is to now beef up security in all consulates and embassies. There will be a full investigation, and those responsible will be found and hunted down. Romney politicized the incident. Obama went on to speak on other foreign policy issues and then took full responsibility for the lack of security in Benghazi.

ADAM SMITH, POLITICAL EDITOR, ST. PETERSBURG TIMES: Mr. Rick Scott, you've described the president's agenda as a disaster for our economy. You look at your tax returns. You actually had greater taxable income under President Obama than you did Bush. Your tax rate is actually lower under President Obama. It seems like you are doing better under the president.

Changing a nations economic situation will take time. If Mexico had an economy like Canada, there would be no immigration problem. NAFTA and other trade deals have helped the Mexican economy, but it is only a start. Making the challenge even greater is the corruption at all levels of Mexican government.

Romney's answer was that the last four years have not been good, and the next four will be the same if Obama is re-elected. The president's plan promised unemployment at 5.4% by now. His immigration reform plan was not done. He did not cut the deficit; he doubled it. Health insurance costs have increased dramatically. There are 23 million unemployed Americans, and one out of six people are now in poverty. There are 47 million people now on food stamps. The economy is growing slowly and grew more slowly than last year. Obama's policies have not allowed the economy to boom. The Reagan recovery created twice as many jobs. The unemployment figure appears to be low because people have stopped looking for work. Obama has not passed Medicare or social security reform.

It was called a teacher pay bill, but actually if you look at the details and what the parents and the superintendents and the school board members actually knew that it was, it was a takeover by Tallahassee politicians and bureaucrats of local school making decisions. Those decisions ought to be made locally.

Obama's response was that the system needs to be fixed. He has sought cooperation from Congress but was forced to do what he could on his own [with executive orders]. He has increased the border patrol. Illegal immigration is down. He wants to go after criminals, not students or laborers. He also believes that young people should have a pathway to citizenship. Romney would veto the Dream Act, and he supports Arizona's immigration law as a model for the nation. Obama states that the system can be fixed, but it is hard for the GOP to support immigration reform.

Florida is not Arizona. But I would have a plan that would call for increasing the fines and penalties on businesses that knowingly hire illegal workers and take jobs away from Floridians and from legal immigrants.

I'm in mourning today, again, because of California. LA to be exact. I haven't seen the little guy yet, but I imagine he's tripping over his chin. At least the Celts gave us a good series and a lot to cheer about. Speaking of cheering, LA had the usual amount of jubilant beatings, celebratory small car fires, and rah-rah Lakers window shatterings. Don't get me wrong. Boston has had their share of "celebrations" also, but I wonder if these exemplary "sports" fans really needed to contribute to 37 fire incidents, 18 medical aid requests, and 8 people being transferred by ambulance to hospitals, just to show thanks to their "sports" team. Way to go, fans.
