Staci: your above two posts come much too close to SPAM!
Typical whiny liberal response: "We just caaaan't. It's just too haaaard."
It appears as the link to volunteer to assist in stopping the John Morse recall did not 'take'. My apologies. One can email the coordinator at: firstname.lastname@example.org Thank you!
Our system of government was created in such fashion that laws could be changed as the norms, values and mores of society change. Also, to adapt to changing physical conditions or situations that could pose a threat to human life.
Being shot at close range by an automatic weapon with a 30 round clip often results in multiple grief for victims and families. Equally often, in death. Asking people, some of whom may not be mentally stabl,e to submit to a background check - - and limiting clip capacity to 15 rounds (or 10 or 7) seems prudent in an increasingly violent society. Yes, the argument is often made there are already 250 million guns in private hands. But you cannot make corn flakes without first planting the seeds. If we do not begin now to curtail violent individuals from owning these weapons, when will we? Is that really a violation of our rights? We do have the 'right' to live and the right to alter conditions which will keep us from living!
Our system of government also is one that creates spirited debate on many issues, which is healthy. Our side of the current gun control legislation, and the resultant recall effort against Senator John Morse is that this is not an appropriate action to take, it is quite expensive to field special elections, there are fewer than 14 months to a term limit and it is likely this seat cannot be taken over by a member of the opposite party in a special election. Therefore, is it prudent to spend perhaps a quarter of a million dollars to recall what has been a good public servant to date, with 14 months to go?
If you feel as we do - please sign up to volunteer with us to halt this recall effort. Everybody has rights!
Anschutz killed Jackson as sure as he has killed the Gazette.
This is really funny...and resonates with all of us old guys
You obviously do not hunt much. Many REAL hunters use semi-auto firearms.
BTW, your bolt-action rifle? That was a "war weapon" too.
NONE of the laws passed or proposed at the Colorado or federal level for the last 20 years affect full-auto firearms, which are already highly restricted items.
Why is it brave and courageous to brag about your sexual exploits? We used to consider that sort of kiss and tell to be ill mannered and not what honorable men would do.
At best his adolescent sexual behavior outside of moral norms is simply immature. His having to tell us about it is just plain pathetic.
I grew up with guns (rifles & shotguns) and hunting - accompanying father and his dogs duck hunting and rabit hunting at age 3 and deer hunting at 11. Father's hunting put food on our table in our poverty, and he cried with every success for the beautiful creature that gave it's life that we might live. As a teenage girl I lost interest in hunting. That interest returned 25 years later in the 90's when the economy started going south for many of us here in the USA and free range, organic meat at $2.00/pound became worth the time, work and stink of hunting and gutting - and the pain of watching the life leave those eyes that I might have some protein on my table. One young doe a year and maybe a turkey is plenty for two people in my opinion.
Hunting is far more about learning, tracking and patience than it is about shooting. Real Hunters have nothing but disdain for idiots with high power, high-tech weapons that know nothing about hunting, are a danger to themselves and other hunters, and have no respect for the hunted. It is the fools with War Weapons that are most likely to kill and leave the meat to rot. Most of the Real Hunters I know joke about shooting these fools and leaving them to rot - but are all too moral to actually follow through.
If you know how to hunt and meat is what you are after, one bullet does the job. And if you are not going to eat it - you should not shoot it.
I don't know any Real Hunters that use automatic or semi-automatic weapons. All the Real Hunters I know want those War Weapons out of the woods and fields.
K: what a putz. You have yet to offer an original thought. You sit on your perch, like the vulture you are, and pick apart people's posts. You actually believe yourself to be wise. You are the biggest joke on these pages. (Well, tied for biggest. The twisted sister is pretty ludicrous as well.)
yea ok miss Stacy we know what wind comes from Woodland park. But yet I was alive and VOTING those days and remember them well real well and very much remember WHO got the ball rolling on NAFTA and Who I voted for then as well as who I voted for in the last election and Damn proud I vote for the person NOT the party. See the difference in me and you windbags I can live with my choices and when Im wrong I can admit it.
I love UCCS. We also rock at Track, Inline Hockey, Rugby, Innovation and Leadership!
siggie, you wrote, "Unions of yesteryear bear no resemblance to the greedy thuggery of the unions today." Indeed! That is because many, if not most, of the unions were organized and led by unabashed communists and socialists. In the 1950's, after the Soviet Union tested a nuclear device, and America officially entered the "McCarthy Era," communists and socialists were drummed out of the unions, paving the way, in many, but not all cases, for unscrupulous opportunists to take over.
Arch-conservative President Richard "Tricky Dick" Nixon opened relations with "Red China," a policy no Democrat would ever have been able to introduce. He was initiating a divide-and-conquer maneuver, trying to drive a wedge between the two allies, and his policy was certainly instrumental in the fall of the Soviet Union.
Now that the Soviet Union is no more, it is long past time to turn against the "Peoples' Republic," to put an end to the sham they call communism, and to liberate their people, using the same weapon we used against the Soviet Union, economics. But the so-called "job creators" are too busy making record profits from the exploitation of Chinese workers. And so-called "conservative" politicians are responsible for mortgaging the nation to China to fight not one, but two (count 'em!) wars.
These "patriots" are bolstering China's economy. They are today's true "useful idiots!"
Stacy: Golly, is it fair to bring up Benghazi? The liberals are wetting their pants over this one. If we had an honest media, this would have been a huge story eight months ago. However, the liberal press, not wanting to embarrass their deity, Obama, or their queen, Hillary attempted to bury it. The White House wanted us all to forget about it by refusing to address it. Unfortunately for them, this travesty (and cover up) has legs and has an excellent chance of being blown wide open. Let us hope that justice prevails.
siggie, the one thing you did not say is that any American garment workers have been injured or killed on the job recently, in spite of the supposed modern decline in union morality that you fail to document. You also fail to mention that it is the American garment workers union that is the sole voice in America fighting for safer conditions for the garment workers of Bangladesh, even though the workers in Bangladesh are not members and do not pay dues.
Changing the subject again? How do you I have no opinion on the oppression of Chinese workers? I was not aware that I am required to inform you of all my opinions regarding China before you even bring up the topic, Stacy. I will let you know precisely how I feel about China later tonight, when I have some time to devote to the subject. In the meantime chew on this, it was Mitt Romney who inspected a factory in China and praised their system of slave labor.
K: So, you have licked your wounds from the last ass whooping you received in these pages and, being the arrogant twit that you are, have forgotten how painful it was.
Unions of yesteryear bear no resemblance to the greedy thuggery of the unions today. They care nothing for worker safety and (if one were being honest) nothing for the "worker". All they care about is maintaining their dwindling power base, how much money they can extort from companies, how much they can squeeze out of their lemming members, and how much Democrat ass they can kiss.
Apparently, Stacy, you have never heard of the infamous Triangle Fire.
And speaking of communists, Mr. K, why is it when hundreds of Chinese miners die in a mine collapse, you and Hightower and the rest of the Marxists have no opinion?
