Re: “Reader: You can't cherry pick the law

It is ironic indeed that the author cites the Bible against vagrancy. The Bible gives the poor the right to glean the leftovers from the commercial agricultural harvest. Not a privilege, but a right.

Re: “Reader: Trump's glue factory

Orwell was an avowed socialist but hated communism. Most totalitarian regimes are also communist. Stalins russian, China, North Korea, Mussolinis Italy, venezuela, cuba, Hitlers Germany. Communism is the most destructive murderous ideology in the world next to Islam.

Re: “Reader: We're arguing about the wrong thing

No if you break our immigration laws you will be punished. Our mass immigration policies are unsustainable. Maybe you should leave this to people who actually know what they are talking about. Its not fear of outsiders. No nation can survive without borders and the USA is as borderless as it gets. Do you want to have a future for your children? What about the citizens rights not to have their culture eroded by mass immigration? Really funny how liberals quote the founding fathers and the constitution only when its convienient.

Re: “Reader: Trump's glue factory

Mikeb45: Did you know that Orwell called for socialized dishwashing? "As I Please". Look it up.

Heck, try re-reading Animal Farm. It's not about how Communism is evil. It's about how the revolution can be hijacked by totalitarianism.

Re: “Reader: Trump's glue factory

I think its pathetic how you liberals misrepresent nazism and communism/totalitarian governments and try to compare them to evil republicans. You are really ignorant. Orwells 1984 is actually a great representation of Hillarys america. A totalitarian communist regime.

Re: “Reader: Trump's glue factory

I dont think you understand the main point of 1984. It is that the totalitarian communist utopia ultimately proves to be the demise of Orwells animal society.

Re: “Reader: You can't cherry pick the law

Do you drive 10 mph over, consistently? You are ALL criminals! I know these humans have to poop, beat off, and sleep with their eyes open. It's rough. The 300 Spartans are homeless(homed by earth) by choice. I was wondering how much they get in a day, so I happened to be out of gas, wrote my cardboard plea...boom $22 bucks in 20 minutes. Plenty for a full tank of Beer! Ha-ha, the polluter is still parked! Does anyone that reads this rag make a dollar a minute. Apparently, you can accomplish anything with rock bottom humility.
Look you so-called do-gooders, invite a stinky person into your backyard, he'll bring a 12 pack!

Cheers, you crazy Spartans!

BTW..where are the privies in this backwater?

Re: “Reader: You can't cherry pick the law

"Most individuals have an objection to another person's dream financed with their dollars"... you mean "investors"?
"Letting the mentally ill vagrant or the illegal immigrant freedom to wander our country puts us all at risk"..And there, but for the Grace of God go I. And what is the risk anyway? You did not mention... You are very unclear as to what The Founders created aren't you?!
The basis for every religion is The Golden Rule. Also there is a such thing as Human Rights. Our country is not a Theocracy mind you but based on Freedom of Religion and that we all have inalienable Rights granted us by our creator.
And have you ever heard of someone referred to as a "housed person"?
Those who you shamelessly call "illegal" probably would make very fine Americans as they truly struggled to get here and they have to pass a history test which most people I know haven't a clue about American history. Here is a tidbit of history most are not aware of: In the 1800s smoking opium was banned because that is what Chinese immigrants did with opium. 1920s marijuana was banned because Mexicans smoked it. 1914 heroin and cocaine were banned because government said black men went crazy while under its influence and raped white women. That law thus enabled police to shoot kill even more black men. When did you think The War on Drugs started? Did you know nobody ever died from heroin? Government says differently but they lie, a lot. Liars are bad citizens. These laws targeted immigrants. Laws created by liars-who are bad citizens. (I am ready to toss in the "f" word here)
What is the difference between cotton and lettuce? The picker.
I am a housed person but a website called zillow dot com said my landlord should charge twice as much as what have been paying so he is raising the rent. We cannot afford it so we will be "homeless". Can you give me any pointers about how to be an upstanding homeless person? Be sure to think your suggestions through before offering them up so as not to appear stupid. Do not call me a "problem" either. I am not the only one zillow is screwing either, Denver and Colorado itself is losing lifelong residents by the scores. Nobody seems to recall The Golden Rule so I suggest you all burn your useless churches down. You can get used to the fire and the fury before you go to hell.

Re: “Reader: We are a nation of sadists and sociopaths

WWII was already won, but scientists wanted to see their work in action. Perhaps there was a bit of revenge going on that drove ppl to drop nuke bombs on innocent Japanese women and children. You think?
If the person currently in possession of the keys to our white house wanted to bomb anybody, would you be shocked and bother to complain? Or would you be dancing in the streets at the excess of power dropped on innocents who just happen to live in the wrong country?

Re: “Reader: You can't cherry pick the law

Vagrants are citizens, too. Just because "conservative" policies have resulted in economic failure does not mean this fact is negated. Citizens have rights.

Re: “Reader: Promote plant-based foods in local schools

JVM I dont know about others but my youngest is over 30 and I was always responsible for feeding them when they were young. Keeping a roof over there heads there butts covered and educating them. Watching my children with there kids nothings changed and nothings free. Where do you guys come from? Maybe just looking for something to grip about?

Re: “Reader: Is the opioid crisis really a crisis?

I find it incredibly disingenuous that you would compare all tobacco "related" deaths to "prescription" opioid overdose deaths. You must see that the former is designed to produce the highest number possible and the latter is designed to produce the lowest number possible.

You either did not realize that these two stats are apples and oranges, or you are intentionally using these stats to downplay the problem.

I don't wish to insult your intelligence but it appears that to avoid that I must impugn you integrity. Which is correct?
