Barbara, The fact that this newspaper publishes the drivel from Timothy Egan from the NY Times on their oped pages is all you need to know about this newpaper's interest. I have no problem with reading both liberal and conservative syndicated columnists on these oped pages. I can learn a lot from some of the pieces from both the right and the left, but Timothy Egan's stuff is awful and I for one am embarrassed that our local paper would publish his junk. I wonder if the editorial board even bothers to read it.
"but no outrage with regard to government telling women what they can and cannot do regarding their reproductive system,"
you must have missed the news on the passage of Roe vs. Wade back in 1973.
Fun fact. did you know the majority opinion was written by one of those old white guys you lefty liberals love to mock as being out of touch.
I have 2 daughters. I think their rights to what they can or cannot do with their reproductive system are being protected just fine.
I am a big states rights guy.

In my opinion each state should decide questions such as abortion, marijuana, voter ID's gun laws, marriage etc. Then people are free to move to a state that best represents their beliefs or they can choose to go through the legislative process and attempt to change the law.
Mr. Shores, You are most fortunate to live in a country where you are allowed the opportunity to spew your lies and your hate with no fear of retribution. I am just glad I don't live in your cesspool. There are 60 - 70 % of the population of this once great country that are trying to figure out how we have allowed you and your lefty ideology and those on the far right and their ideology to drag this country into the toilet. We are desperately trying to find a solution.
Unfortunately in my opinion we have reached the point of no return.

What a crock of fertilizer. You blame the republicans, conservatives, Tea Party every chance you get.
Again please, please keep posting. It gives me great entertainment.
My family awaits your apology.
Washington Post/ ABC poll
How would you describe the economy?
Not so good 44%
Please provide proof and the context it was presented that I claimed that Cliven Bundy wasn't a racist because 2 African Americans apparently came forward and declared that they know Cliven Bundy he is not a racist. I certainly don't recall making that claim. Obviously you have never seen a photo of my extended family. Hint - there are people of color and oh my there are inter-racial marriages. I know, i know - as i admitted on this forum recently that while I voted for Clinton, i did not vote for Obama (I prefer Governors as Presidents) in your mind that makes me a racist. (Although if I voted for Clinton and he was reportedly our "first black president" then the racist accusation may not have merit.) Do you really have that much hate in your body for those who are not afraid to challenge your silly lefty rants. But hey, progress - I actually got you to admit some pesky democrats were against Voting Rights, Civil Rights and Social Security. That must have hurt. Kind of like the Fonz not able to say wriiiiioooouuung. There may be hope for you. LOL. I have no interest in joining you in your cesspool. If you have no proof that I said what you are suggesting i said then you owe my family an apology. I could give a rat's hind end what you think of me.
Given that none of the Acts we have discussed would have passed with out Republican votes are you telling me that those hateful Republicans are progressives and your Democrats who opposed those Acts were scum of the earth. Please keep posting as it is a treat. O and yes were i thought it worth the effort i would explain to you some of the sad realities of our current economy and the employment situation, but you wouldn't believe me and would tell me they were all lies so there is no point. regards the stock market and interest rates. Isn't it nice to see the zero interest policy destroy the retirement hopes and dreams of those who hold fixed income products and the stock market present untold millions to the 1% ers that the progressives claim to hate and despise. I love the irony.
you are like a kid saying. "I am right, your facts are wrong - no backs."
So you are saying all the info I provided regards the Democrats providing resistance to the passage of Voting Rights Act, Civil Rights Act and Social Security Act are just myths and with out the cooperation of the Republicans they would have passed any way.
You are correct to your statement You are under no burden to disprove my facts because best i can tell you can't other wise you would have done so.
Now that is great stuff there Dan S.

Amen Brad. There are places on 14 from 131 to 16 that if a car goes off it will roll. In a snow storm visibility is minimal at best.
I was thinking the same thing. article says 4 left the scene but only 3 were arrested with no mention of the fourth.
Thank you for your reply. You neither surprised nor disappointed me. You are truly a left wing ideologue. Everybody on this blog now sees that and I think that is great. You did nothing to disprove the facts as they stand regards the Democrats and the Civil Rights Act, the Voting Rights Act and the Social Security Act. Keep spewing your hate. Nobody will care as your credibility is nada, nil, zero.
Please tell me what "same old worn out argument" I am espousing. Are you telling me that the Republicans that supported and worked with the Democrats to get all three of those acts were progressive. Some how I don't think your liberal friends who be pleased to see you refer to Republicans as "progressives".
You are entitled to your opinions even when as in this case they are as ignorant as they might be. I politely provided you with historical facts regarding Civil Rights Act, Voting Rights Act and Social Security Act. Please prove to me any factual information that the information I provided is incorrect. I can't help it if you want to ignore those facts and deny your saintly progressives (Democrats) were not the ones solely responsible for those Acts. The fact is that your progressives threw up road blocks and through compromise those Acts were passed. Again I am not denying that conservative throw up roadblock to liberal legislation I am just providing historical facts disproving your assertion regards progressives and the Acts I mentioned. Do you ever read history, do you care about history or for you is it lefty liberals good, anybody that disagrees with you, regardless of the facts - bad.
It appears to me that the best you have is to throw your opinions out, declare them as facts and when the real facts are provided you decide they are incorrect. Now that's keeping an open mind.
If any body else out there wants to deal with Dan S, have at it. I have no further interest in trying to have a reasonable and rational discussion with some one that denies the facts that i provided about the three Acts. If I am wrong about the facts I have provided please provide that information. It would be appreciated.
