Re: “Disappointing Indy can't find middle ground

Mr. Endres:

"4 Democratic Senators, each of them his rival in the current Presidential race, are called back to the Senate to vote on his innocence or guilt.
They each have something significant to gain if the President is found guilty; the removal of their only Republican rival in the race."

But no problem with the GOP announcing before the trial that he would be acquitted as quickly as possible? How can THAT be allowed to happen?

We all know he's guilty. He admitted as much. You would have convicted him if he had a (D) after his name. You just want someone to blame other than the President.

If you're really concerned about the personal interests of Democratic Senators who did their jobs, take it up with the Founding Fathers. They wrote the impeachment clause, and made no exception for any senator for any reason. You can always start a petition to amend the Constitution if you don't like what it says. Go for it.

Re: “Lifetime state parks pass for seniors


"If the $175 price tag seem to high then continue to pay the daily rates on an as needed basis. You have choices."

You're right. We have choices. My choice is to use my National Parks lifetime pass and avoid any daily or lifetime charge for state parks. I haven't been to a state park for over a decade. So I don't see how that helps fund the state parks.

Re: “Sheriff’s office says it will comply with red-flag law

Bob Wyman:

"Red Flag laws are un-Constitutional."

NOPE. Unless and until the Supreme Court says so, Red Flag law are presumed to be Constitutional. There's no Bob Wyman exception to determining the constitutionality or this or any other law.

Unless you're a Constitutional Lawyer, you are treading on very thin ice by advising others on breaking this law. Anyone following your advice may be arrested, charged, and convicted. Do what you think is right, but advising others to break the law is not in their or your best interests..

Re: “Space Force leaders will swear oath on a Bible



There is IS a long standing established policy of separation of church and state, and you know it.

"Separation of church and state" is paraphrased from Thomas Jefferson and used by others in expressing an understanding of the intent and function of the Establishment Clause and Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution which reads: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof..."

The phrase "separation between church & state" is generally traced to a January 1, 1802, letter by Thomas Jefferson, addressed to the Danbury Baptist Association in Connecticut, and published in a Massachusetts newspaper. "…
