You can make all the idiotic laws you want, it won't amount to a hill of beans! You can tighten gun laws, it won't help. If you really want to stop the gun violence mainly in the young adult males we need to start early. That means tough love, CORPORAL PUNISHMENT IN THE SCHOOLS! The sad part is the majority of schools in America are run by wussy administrators most of whom have never done a hard days work in their lives and it shows! So you need to start by getting rid of these ninnies and wussy union teachers. Another idea would be to turn all of our crappy public high schools in to military schools. It's been tried and it works! Example there was an inner city school in East Chicago that was a disaster. About 10 years ago the U.S. Marines took it over. After the first four years they had their first graduating class. Everyone of the students not only were accepted into college(s) but everyone of them also got a scholarship. I challenge any public school in America to beat that! Oh wait they're run by union wussies so it's probably not possible!!! NEA/AFT losers once again!!!
Gun Control, stricter laws, blah blah blah! YOU WON'T EVER CURVE THE VIOLENCE THROUGH LAWS! If you really want to stop all these shootings by young adult males and the gang shootings by inner city African Americans there is only one possible solution. BRING CORPORAL PUNISHMENT BACK TO THE PUBLIC SCHOOL SYSTEM!!! While their might be a correlation between what kids watch on TV and in movies and what they hear with respect to music there is one thing they all have in common, they have no respect for human life, no respect for authority, and no respect for the consequences!!! It's time to start introducing them to the consequences and do it early. It's to late for the high school kids of today, but it isn't to late for the high school kids of tomorrow!!!
Does Lar-i-more work at the Indy? You certainly give him a lot of (way too much) ink.
To add to Rodneys comment:
Fact: In 2010, 211 children were killed in drunk driving crashes. Out of those 211 deaths, 131 (62 percent) were riding with the drunk driver http://www-nrd.nhtsa.dot.gov/Pubs/811606.p…
Where is the outrage for this? this is over 10 TIMES that many killed in this horrific shooting and yet where is the anger and disgust? You people that ignore these things are in my opinion "fair weather hippocrits" and jump on the bandwagon when something horrible happens yet turn a blind eye to the horrible things happening to kids every day.
I propose another time of Prohibition... what could possibly go wrong or bad come of that Govt failure again?
To Sharlene: There are over 100 million kids that play violent games EVERY DAY around the world. The instances of these kids killing people isn't even enough to track, I'd bet its not even a fraction of a fraction of a percent. How about the people that are drunk that kill people or that kill people after eating fast food? Lets ban alcohol and McDonalds..they lead to murder! A gun is an inanimate object but in your mindset lets outlaw cars and forks. Cars lead to DUI's and 115 people die a DAY in car accidents. Forks lead to obesity and on and on and on. You need to realize that guns are what keep us safe and if the US didn't have such a large amount of them in private hands that we would not be where we are today with our freedoms. Our 2nd Amendment is about more then the right to own guns its the right to protect ourselves from harm and from a govt that will do us harm. If everyone knew that most people were armed would they ever go into a public place to do these violent acts? Those that would wouldn't get more then a few shots off before they were killed and a lot of lives would be saved.
Sharlene: I'm wondering if your bleeding heart, sickeningly sweet pablum made you feel better. In you fake outrage against guns (your anti-gun stance is your real concern, isn't it?), you neglected to even mention the real problem we have. Why didn't you say anything about parental responsibility, discipline or personal responsibility? If this spoiled brat piece of crap was taught self-control instead of self-satisfaction, if he was told no instead of being indulged his whole life, if he would have been taught that he is responsible for his life not the government or someone else, then perhaps this tragedy would not have happened.
This is a really good service. I was able to find some answers to my questions and I did not even have to pay for this. You know, many would probably understand me not wanting to overpay for anything in times of critical instability. Like I don't want to go to pay day lenders in order to get money to pay to a financial adviser. Well this isn't the topic. Thanx again.

Smoke signals. Well said.
Why all the outrage now? Remember when the worldwide sanctions we forced on Iraq during the 90's killed over a 1/2 million children there? They must have felt extreme pain and hardship as they died slowly from starvation. Help me with the math here...is that over a million parents that were slowly crushed as they helplessly watched their precious children die before their eyes....? Wonder how many extended family members felt that pain? Our stance towards this as a nation was that we thought the price was worth it: http://fair.org/extra-online-articles/we-t…
Also, everybody knows that thousands of children die everyday from starvation and disease, right? http://www.un.org/apps/news/story.asp?News…
Shouldn't we do something to stop the senseless killing of ALL children?
tooth - one wonders if you hold certain segments of the population in such disdain why you would spend so much time with them?
By the way, your post wasn't a bit prejudicial (cough, cough).
I think most rational folks would agree that we should control the sales of assault weapons and restrict the sale of guns to the mentally ill. The problem is -"give them an inch and they take a mile." There will be reluctance among many people to open any door and give the radical left a toe hold. They have proven they cannot be trusted to accept any moderate proposals. Their agenda is to start small and subsequently ban ALL guns to private citizens.
Steve Meyer, I encourage you to pay the 8 bucks and go to a gun show; up on north Nevada or better yet the Tanner show in Pueblo. There is nothing "hunting" about them. High power, multi-round clips, survival stuff to the nines. The hucksters know what is selling and they are selling lots of it. More important- observe the crowd. These misled boobs are taking it all in like cotton candy at the fair. And yes, you will see racial slurs, pictures and the like in this mostly white crowd. Their fear is real albeit misplaced. The NRA will help pay your admission fee if you sign up with them at the door. So, Steve, go see all this sadness for yourself. Thanks for your note.
The NSG investment is an "investment"; it's not a sellable product therefore it can not be marketed. How many units have been sold - lets see, one to CSU, and Zero to all other potential buyers?
There is no question we have good people at our community owned Utilities, but it is becoming increasingly clearer that perhaps NSG was not the right way to go; actually it's becoming obvious.
And NSG is likely a good company, but they moved into an area that they don't belong - now both parties are stuck and CSU has the liability.
It always takes time for the Truth to surface, but it always surfaces.
I know there is someone with "Integrity" who works at NSG. I received your letter - please contact me at email@example.com.
We need to talk.
Sorry Oneopinion, I wasn't clear. The Drake PP has to be replaced by CSU or somebody else because of it's toxic output, regardless of it's status as a cash cow.
Sorry onesopinion, I wasn't clear, The Drake PPlant needs to be replaced by somebody (CSU or Private) and probably at a different location because of it's toxic output, notwithstanding it's status as a cash cow.
Kenton, It is not budgetary concerns that surround the idea of shutting down/ privatizing the utilities. CSU provides approximately $40 million a year to the city's budget. If they were to sell off the utilities, where are we going to find $40 million to cover that loss? With the current financial state of the utilities, selling would only result in maybe $1 billion in a best case scenario. If would be irresponsible to sell the utilities for a small quick payout. It is far more favorable over the long run to keep CSU owned by the citizens, especially since privatization of CSU would result in utilities cost at least doubling, if not more for the average rate payer.
So sad that Mr. Paul Dahlsten uses myth and untruth, instead of facts, in his letter.
Ignorance and the inability to find out those said facts is just sad.
And, I, by the way, sleep every night with 4 of them. Definitely saves on my heating bill!
LED DLP HD projector + Zenith Digital Tuner + PC speakers w/sub + 8 ft. white wall = 27 Watts
Work long hours to pay for day care(w/a stranger) and a gas-guzzling SUV(supports Saudi wife killing Jihadists), so you can drive to the treadmill, what a bunch of Earth killing idiots!
Mr. Justice: why do you feel you have the right to other people's property? Your "FAIRNESS" is nothing more than a catchword for distribution of wealth. It wasn't long ago that socialists like yourself were held in disdain in this country. Now I fear there are many of you and you seem to be winning. How sad!
How many times do you want to go over the same ground, TejonTech? As I already wrote, "The unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest rate in four years." See if you can remember it this time around.
