You forgot to mention former County Commissioner Jim Bensberg, I believe I saw him in attendance at this meeting.
Carmody, that is one of your more ridiculous letters..... The morning after bill is not equivalent in any way, shape or form to the chemcal weapons unleashed on the Syrian people. Why is it that you fanatics cannot see that a microscopic fertilized egg is not the same as a live baby? Similarly, the suffering endured by live people gassed by poison chemcials is not even comparable with conception or use of the morning after bill. You should be ashamed of yourself to belittle their pain for your narrow anti-abortion agenda. Get a grip, Father.
how annoying to have the pro-gas side quoted there are the end..... anyone who works for the oil and gas industry does not have a say, you know that their industry paid for dribble is not accurate. Josh Fox has no stake in this, he is just a grassroots person. But what he saw over time convinced him of the actual reality that fracking poisons and kills. Kudos to Fox for his work to open our eyes, despite the industry shills howling after him every stop he makes.
So now we know that the big guns are involved along with the local crazies, like the Basic Freedom Defense Fund, Sheriff Maketa and our EPC County Commissioners..... The NRA has the resources to spread lies and misinformation, will they get their way? Hard to say, but whatever happens, Sen. Morse can go to bed at night with a clear conscience. He provided real leadership to address the danger of mass shootings and killing of innocents from people who have not passed a background check and those able to easily purchase high capacity clips. Thank you Sen. Morse for representing the concerns of most people for common sense gun safety measures, rather than those of the special interest gun manufacturers and gun nuts. They will keep us awash in weapons and murders if they intimidate the political system and oppose event the most benign measures.....
He should be ashamed of himself! Don't these fellows have anything better to do than obsess over new ways to keep women "barefoot and pregnant" in the kitchen? These county commissioners are extremely difficult to put up with, way more conservative than the rest of the community. Hopefully they will not seriously consider his proposal but I'll bet some of them will.....
This is a very deceptive campaign, not surprising to find that Republicans are behind it. The radio ad is trying to present birth control as a freedom issue. It plays into everyone's libertarian fantasies. The truth is though that Republican's support for personal choice and freedom ends with a woman's utereus. She cannot be trusted to make her own personal decisions about her reporoductive health care. Then big government has to step in and make those choices for her, as we see in the Republican party platform. And for those struggling to make ends meet and having to pay for bc pills, the Obama position that birth control is a preventative service to be provided without charge is a godsend. Ignore these shysters if you can..... taint of Rove, Koch Bros money all over it.
This is exactly why Memorial Hospital needs to be separate from the City -- too much interference by yahoos like Bach.
