There were two Dems in the California race because they changed their primary system from two partisan primaries to a single primary vote with the top two candidates going to the general election regardless of party affiliation.
I personally would like to see this change take hold across the entire nation. It seems to me that this primary process would have the effect of eliminating the worst candidates from all sides and giving the middle of the spectrum candidates more voice regardless of party affiliation. In my opinion this would be a good thing for our politics.
Brian, I would not count your chickens too soon there. Just two years ago the Dems were crowing about how the Republican party was dead because of demographics and look how that turned out. The pendulum could just as easily swing left given the right circumstances and counting either party as down and out is a mistake.
When you combine the recent problems with Joel Rae and the SSPD with the Bantle situation and the way the Sheriff's office appears to have handled information there certainly appears to be a lot of smoke. Given the public distrust after the recent exposures of SSPD revelations, this can of worms should be opened for the public to see. Let no one be immune to the actual truth.
Frankly, I would love to see an open investigation of just exactly what happened and who did what. If both the Sheriff's office and the SSPD are completely above board in their actions, what do they have to lose? Too much of this got buried by City Council.
Parasite Debbie? Really, come on man! She was approved for the School position long after Sheriff Wiggins knew about her previously admitted issues. Why did this information come from his office once Officer Bantle made complaints? Hmmmm, as a citizen of Routt County I would like to know more about this chain of events. Something doesn't smell right and we have not yet received the full story. I will withhold my opinion until I know more.
Carl, then you support the "Stream Protection Rule" which was designed to protect streams and waterways from toxic runoff from coal mines right? This is exactly the kind of thing that previous mine owners left the public to deal with. I too would like to find ways to prevent these abuses from happening.
Nice personal attack to re-direct the conversation Carl. What about the topic mentioned in the actual letter to the editor.
As in WHY is it ok for the mining industry to leave these problems for the taxpayers to clean up, but the EPA must be attacked for trying to actually fix these problems?
I think what we are really learning here is who the "Snowflakes" really are! If you never read opinions from people that you disagree with then the snowflake looks back at you int the bathroom mirror.
Broaden your horizons and find articles from all sides of every issue. That is how you become well informed.
Or Texas, How did that Jade Helm invasion go again?
As one who has experienced the "largess" of the health insurance industry I can tell you for an absolute fact that insurance is more accessible now than before the ACA was passed. Argue whatever point you would like, but I still possess the letter from the insurance company(Blue Cross) that said:
"We apologize, the state of Kansas tells us we cannot raise your premium 400% in a single year. Instead, we are going to raise your premiums by 40% in 1997, 40% in 1998, 40% in 1999, 40% in 2000 and 40% in 2001. "
Gee, I thought all the rate increases were blamed on Obama.
Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free;
Seems to me that the world continues to have an excess of huddled masses, tired and poor Martha.
Given the largess that American citizens enjoy (yes, even the poorest among us!) We continue to be the land of those "yearning to be free"even in these stormy times.
I am a 3rd generation immigrant. My family continues to talk about the abuses they suffered when my great grandpa immigrated here with his two boys. Give these "huddled masses yearning to breathe free" a chance and their children will be just as American as you or I.
History proves that we are stronger together and at our best when we use our Christian values to help others.
Here the whispers? Those are the students killed at Kent State, the injured and beaten from Selma Bridge and the participants from the 1963 March on Washington telling you that history can be changed.
Tin soldiers and Nixon coming,
We're finally on our own.
This summer I hear the drumming,
Four dead in Ohio.
Gotta get down to it
Soldiers are cutting us down
Should have been done long ago.
What if you knew her
And found her dead on the ground
How can you run when you know?
No Mary, your voice is important to this conversation and topic. While you cannot expect to change the hearts and minds of those that already have their minds made up, rest assured that there are many people that read these forums without ever commenting. Those are the hearts and minds you are responding to.
