Did Gary Flakes cause less pain and suffering by SHOOTING or helping to SHOOT and covering up the Valentines Day SHOTGUN deaths of two innocent boys in 1997? Act against gun violence, vote against Gary FLakes for Colorado Springs city council. Question those that support him. Do it for Mark Hummels and other victims of gun violence.
If Gary Flakes had molested those two teens, he'd have to register as a sex offender for the rest of his life as a threat to the community. But SHOOTING, or helping to SHOOT those innocent boys and not report it and still not admit guilt and/or still protecting the SHOOTER....that's okay to Rosemary Harris Lytle and Rich Tosches? Many people condemn Catholic priests for pedophilia, and condemn the Catholic church for enabling and covering up the crimes. Until Gary Flakes comes clean about his SHOOTING crime, those individuals, (Rosemary Harris Lytle, Rich Tosches) and their respective organizations (NAACP-Colorado, Montana, Wyoming, Ranger Rich fans) are no different than "Catholic Cabal" and place their misguided sense of justice above common decency.
There are more appropriate ways for Gary Flakes to make reparations to the community he wronged.
This Valentines Day, take a stand for the innocent child victims of gun violence, send a broken, shot-gunned heart to Gary Flakes, Rosemary Harris Lytle and Rich Tosches.
An unexpectedly beautiful smile shining through the morning's miserable news. Thanks CSIndy! Thanks, Bonnie!
Lloyd and Durland...
I suggest you both take your own advice and un-occupy North America. The Native People and First Nations people were here first. Return to them your property. As per your suggestions you can return to Europe. Native Americans predate you here, just as jews predate muslim arabs in the middle east...uh oh...so much for your plan. I don;t know why each of you is always so interested in what the Nazis liked to call a "juden-rhein" or jew-free land. Besides, with the current middle east Islamist track record for human rights, women's rights, gay rights and religious freedom, your plans would are condemn an awful lot of people to jail or death.
But please, Kenton and Bill, lead us by your example, get out of North America and return to Europe. Better yet...go to Gaza, to Iran, to Iraq to Egypt...you both deserve it!
Scott is working at cross purposes. He does not want to be treated as disabled. He wants to be treated like anybody else, and when he is he is upset. Anybody else who brings their non-service Mutt to Territory Days or the supermarket will try to talk their way into allowing their dog to accompany them, even lying that the animal is a service dog. Scott's dog Sandy doesn't have to wear her service vest 24/7, but Scott should keep it on hand so Candy can wear it in stores, restaurants and in situations and events like Territory Days. It will avoid "hurtful" misunderstandings, and it will also help Candy, since many people and children know to not antagonize service animals.
Scott, nor anyone, can control how other people act, but we can control how we react to other's reactions and modify our own actions and attitudes to achieve the most harmonious social experiences possible. Unless that's not his goal.
But you are endorsing it! How many copycats will be emboldened, er, empowered by this romantic portrayal? Yes, it's less offensive than gang tagging, but it crosses the line none the less. It ruins the view for everyone who sees it, it costs money to remove. If you love graffitti, take a walk around Seattle by the space needle and the Queen Ann neighborhood...devestatingly heart breaking!
Thanks for promoting vandalism.
