Re: “Mass shootings: American carnage. American madness. American denial.

Dave Hernandez:

"Holmes is correct. Re-read what he wrote. He said knives kill more than rifles, not more than guns. "

Even so....it's is misleading to imply that knives are a bigger threat than guns. It's not even close.

Holmes:

Knives kill more people than guns? WRONG again...

Stop making stuff up.

That said, I don't have a problem taking your knives away. And your scissors.

We can only assume that those who oppose change are satisfied with the status quo.

Re: “The problem here is hate

Mr. Hernandez:

I resisted using the term racist for as long as I could. I cut the President some slack, hoping he would somehow prove through his speech and actions that the "racist" claims were false.

I was wrong. He has done nothing to disprove the claims. It's time we all accept the bleak reality. Our President is only the President of his base. He cares not for any other Americans.

Your hatred of President Obama is ironic, given your condemnation of those who are criticizing President Trump. I guess it's only hate if directed at your guy.

As for left wing violence, I'm sure you can cite examples, though you didn't bother. That said, though, law enforcement recognizes that the real threat today is from right wing extremists. In 2018, 98% of extremist killings were committed by right wing perpetrators. Don't pretend that the left is the problem.

Re: “Abortion laws: A state-by-state update

Gregaj:

"Abortion is murder of a child yet to be born for the only "crime" of being conceived."

Your opinion. Not supported by science or law. "Murder" is a crime. Abortion is not.

If you think overturning Roe v Wade will eliminate abortion, you are naive. Abortion was widespread before Roe, and will be widespread after Roe.

Re: “Scheels: Will annual sales be $60 million or a third that amount?

Isn't the "Interquest Business Improvement District" the same location where a new mall failed before construction was complete? Seems like a fitting symbol of the overpromise and under perform approach to development. The empty structures on the South East corner look like victims of the last wave of "conservative" estimates for an economic paradise.
