MDT: stuck in the middle? Doubtful. You state "...never said what position I take." I believe you are making it quite clear.
And for clarification ...... As a Libertarian, I decry the loss of rights regardless of which party is responsible.
Funny you should mention "women's rights". I suspect you mean abortion? Is that a right? Before you get all 'high and mighty' and begin your lecture, I take the libertarian position on abortion. I have stated my opinion on the subject many times. 1st tri: okay. 2nd tri: subject to reasonable discussion. 3rd tri - only in the most extreme cases.
Not a single part of this legislation would have deterred the shooter in her situation...she is mixing apples and oranges and distracting congress from real solutions.
Siggie, Typical name calling when you can not talk with intelligence........yes erosion of rights, womens rights by the religious right, unlawful wiretaps and loss of rights in the Patriot Act as done by the Bush administration, rights of other religions other than christian.... the list can go on from both the LEFT and the RIGHT. Its HELL being stuck in the MIDDLE with all of you. LEAN TO THE LEFT, LEAN TO THE RIGHT, STAND UP, SIT DOWN, FIGHT!FIGHT!FIGHT!
What a silly little man you are K. I hold only opinions and you hold only the truth?
I'll stick with your question - "How would you know."
I suspect that since you read something (no doubt written by one of your extremely liberal scholars), it is automatically true. You have proven yourself quite foolish and yet you seem to think you are something special.
On second thought, tech is too much for you, maybe you can engage the illiterate fat girls from the utility.
Pathetic Indy, just pathetic. Do you liberals feel better reading this screed? The bill in question means NOTHING to the people of Colorado. Both of our Senators voted for it, and all the provisions of this law ARE ALREADY COLORADO STATE LAW. All gun show sales have background checks here. And the Senate bill touted a "friends and family sale" exemption. It was a toothless and unenforceable bill (unless Obama thinks we should start registering who our friends are). So Mrs. Giffords, do us all a favor and go away, and take that hypocrite husband with you.
Simple question - How would this bill (or any other) "prevent future tragedies"?
This bleeding-heart, liberal misguided overreaction to sociopaths will solve nothing and, in fact, ignores the real problem.
siggie, perhaps I am not interested in the topic of the federal government. Perhaps I am only interested in the historical topic, and in correcting the misinformation you gleefully spread.
To that end, I take issue with your characterization of my comments as my "highly prejudiced opinion on history." How would you know? In fact, your original comment begins, "I suspect that..." In other words, you are speculating. You speculate because you do not know. Since you do not know, you cannot demonstrate my remarks are erroneous or exaggerated.
I have studied the history, so, I do happen to know the truth. Nevertheless, since you are not interested in the truth, but only in "winning" the "argument" against a "liberal," you engage in the kind of trash talk more suitable for professional wrestling than a debate.
K: instead of cherry picking a specific in my comment and giving your highly prejudiced opinion on history, why don't you discuss the real issue? That is, the systematic erosion of our rights by the federal government. Perhaps you believe that the American people have too many rights and there should be more government control. Perhaps you believe, as Obama does, that the government is the answer to all things. Perhaps you fail to recognize that as the federal government gets bigger the rights of the American people get smaller. Perhaps you should go back to playing with tejontech. The problem is that he refuses to engage, unless you want to talk about religion.
Colorado Springs park system is wonderful, however, there is more to Colorado Springs than the downtown. When will our city look again at Academy Blvd which is currently a disaster?
Too bad we just voted to use our acquisition money for lands like this to be used parks maintenance, giving Bach the extra budget money to reward his friends with bonuses and buy outs.
The biggest problem with this plan is that the neckless is full of homeless people and drug dealers...and poor zoning enforcement has adjoining properties so run down no one wants to go near them.
And the inner circle itself is pretty seedy with bail bonds offices, lots social agencies that attract a whole different clientele than nice shops and eateries would.
siggie, the German people, like other Europeans, did not have any rights to begin with. America, was the first nation in history to begin its life with a definition of the rights to which its citizens were entitled. The German people had to fight tooth and nail against an entrenched aristocracy for every right they now enjoy. Far from being asleep during the Nazi takeover, the citizens overwhelmingly voted them into power with their eyes wide open, although, to be fair, they had been driven to despair by their collapsing economy.
Siggie, not speaking for anyone,never said what position I take, just if you ask for sources you should provide some, and you did, just outdated sources. But if you are speaking of current events, you should provide some CURRENT sources.
Only an idiot would want to serve now on Colorado Springs City Council and get no pay, no respect. City and County is all partisan. There is no fair representation any longer.
MDT: Since you seem to be speaking for Bob, all I can say is - you made my point.
Common sense not ideology should guide our city...this is why Jan Martin was not elected.
But King Kong of the City using brut force is not good either.
Info wars poll is from Oct 2011, not very recent in light of recent events, CBS report is from 2010, new american is same poll as infowars poll, citing a gallup poll, the blaze poll is an online poll and fails at the test of a true scientific poll, mitchell poll is at least fairly current Jan 2013. The Rasmussen cherry picks to fill their agenda. At least you tried and did cite your sources siggie.
R.I.P. "Rickey Racer"...You are missed and will never be forgotten!! Truly "one of a kind."♥
Perhaps it would have been useful for this article to actually ASK the rookies why they did not want Jan Martin as council president.
Personally I found her way of "leading" on the Memorial Hospital issue to be both impetuous and financially misguided - especially given the handling of severance payments and the incomplete outcome of the PERA situation. I am glad she is no longer in such a position.
The point is --- any poll can say anything the pollster wants it to say.
Give 'em an inch and they will take a mile. Be very wary of any erosion of your rights. I suspect that the trusting Germans allowed their rights to slowly, but systematically be taken from them. When they awoke, Hitler had established a Facist state.
