I'm curious Paul, do you think the EPA will be successful in putting those miners who now own their own homes and have seen their working conditions vastly improved as compared to the days of your youth out of work? And would that be a good development here at the dawn of the golden age?
There's no need to apologize for being wrong. Just admit it and move on. That is unless, as a consequence of the "wrongness," people are damaged. And if they are, apologies are at that point of little value. Take proponents of global warming for example. When it becomes evident to even the most ardent supporters of the flawed ideology of global warming that they are wrong, it will be too late for their apologies to do any good for those wronged in the interim.
I'm not a proponent of high speed rail (or medium or low speed for that matter) and think protagonists are hard pressed to demonstrate a sound economic model exists. But I do hate the traffic on the I-70 corridor and if metro dwellers could be forced into a mandatory use standard, I'd be all for it. Cap and trade anyone?
On a more constructive note, I've always wondered why ski areas and the underlying tourism trades don't promote mid-week utilization of resorts more actively. You know, bargains for off-peak periods; maybe a "green" discount for Monday through Thursday type of thing.
I applaud the Pilot's willingness to publish a variety of opinions and perspectives from local contributors. It's up to us, the readers, to keep our facts straight. For the record, Hillary did not rob a bank in college. But shortly thereafter, as a young attorney, she did vigorously defend a child rapist.
Whoa Eric! In order for our civil society to continue to function, we simply cannot have ad hoc committees, even fairly chosen juries, deciding for themselves what's constitutional or moral. That's President Obama's job!
In hindsight, electing a man who spent a good part of his life conflicted over his own identity and expecting him to heal the ginned up racial divides the balkanizers in this country promote, may have been a mistake.
Well stated Joe. It's too bad the founding fathers didn't think to include in the Constitution a political remedy to enable the people's representatives to take appropriate actions should individuals in government in fact demonstrate complete disregard and disdain for the system they are sworn to protect and defend. Guys like Eric Cantor - oops!, I mean Dave Brat - could make good use of such a provision.
The significance of Benghazi was not the attack. Terrorists attack. It's what they do. It's who they are. The significance of Benghazi is the lack of response to the attack; leaving Americans to fend for themselves and then die after a prolonged battle when military assets were available to assist but were not dispatched. That is a dereliction of duty. There was a special prosecutor appointed to investigate Iran/Contra. Benghazi warrants no less. Or, as the Democrat party prefers, we can just go with, "What difference does it make?"
The NCA is a political document produced by political operatives for political purposes. Nothing more, nothing less.
Congratulations to all the employees at Twentymile! This is an impressive accomplishment.
