    • Sounds like your a racist who stereotypes based on there financial status. Let me guess, your probably some rich little snob that lives withing and daddy and never had to struggle or pay for anything on your own. The past Judgment on things you know nothing about. You don’t have to be illegal to be low income and not be able to afford health coverage. There are plenty of elderly people who barely have money to put food on the Table. Grow up you racist prick.

  2. whatever color, age religion, you should be entitled health and teeth. Please the arguing, the mean statements, all of this is how our country falls apart, we all need to remember ones health is a priority, and age is not a reason to suffer for lack of getting needs met. Take your energy and volunteer, see for yourself, people all need help. We are made of all nationalities, all!

  3. I simply stated that the illegals will make out on this, would you like to place a wager? We can go down and do an exit survey and see. There are very few things we are entitled to as rights in this Country and healthcare is not one of them! I bet you want to limit gun ownership? That one IS a RIGHT!

They are the best in they what they do but most important they have hearts!

  8. Free Clinics are for everyone, no matter your race. I work in health care and I usually see more blacks and whites seeking meds to sell or get high off…so if you are illegal and need meds I would rather help them than a drug seeker. Don’t make judgements unless u work in the ER or anyother medical place. Its free for everyone, stop juding!

  12. ILLEGAL ALIENS, there I said it, I’m not going to sugar coat it. If you have entered this Country Illegally that’s what you are and you have broken the law and that makes you a Criminal period. Furthermore, you are not entitled to free Social Services, free Health Care, free Social Security or any other benefits which American Citizens are entitled too. This is not a racial issue, it goes for any ILLEGAL ALIEN but in case you didn’t notice it just so happens we’re next to the MEXICAN BORDER and we’ve been invaded by MEXICANS that have chosen to break the law.

But you can’t reason with them. if they want to be here, let them apply & come like the rest of their countrymen. The legal Mexicans. And I am 3/4 indian

  14. Someone continues to spam craigslists’ free section with free medical care, and links to your article. Funny that an urgent healthcare clinic is open for 4 hours, one night a week, and takes appointments for 2 hours the afternoon before that evening. And by funny I mean that the rest of the civilized world laughs and laughs and laughs at what we endure while we beat our chests, and fling our feces.

  15. I’m not sure how chest beating and feces throwing is related to a ” laughing” civilization. Fortunately, most of us have evolved and matured enough to be compassionate human beings willing to offer a friendly hand of hope for those who are facing difficult challenges in life. This was notable enough to be in Thursday’s 6/6/13 transcript.
    Thank You for taking the time to think of others during these challenging times. I do appreciate it all your selfless efforts! I’m a fan.

  16. I’m 33 & disabled due to being rear-ended by an uninsured legal citizen. My husband is disabled due to major back surgery & both of my children have health problems. The state of CA says we can afford a $650 a month share of cost with Medi-Cal when we can barely afford rent utilities & food. I’m Cherokee, English, Irish & Dutch. Being in need of help can happen to absolutely anyone! I’m so thankful that this clinic is opening to help those in need. My only wish would be that I could go. Unfortunately I do not live in Concord. I praise those that are helping the needy & wish the best for you all.

  19. There is a HUGE DEMAND for a program like this!!!!!!!

    That is why we have to hunt for people to use it. Maybe the rotary club should be spending some of our donated money for ads on TV and radio to tell people about a service that apparently is not even needed.

  21. The truth is, if you learn hypnosis it is possible to help others while helping yourself achieve
    your goals. Evidence accumulated to date suggests that several Hypnotherapeutic approaches are highly effective in the treatment
    of patients with chronic migraine headaches. Motivational weight reduction CDs have be
    a popular and successful fat loss aid to use with weight reduction programs because motivation is
    integral to success for many people.
