Re: “Reader: Prayers and concealed guns won't change a thing

Well here we are again another nut got his hands on a gun and killed innocent people. Now were right back to the same old B.S. Some say more guns in the hands of those that may protect others say no guns. The lawmakers sure have no ideas. The ones that scream protection are offering no ideas and those that scream no guns have no ideas. More ant the answer and not having any is not the answer. The problem people is society I grew up in a family and a time that taught right and wrong not laws but morals. Dont lie, cheat, steal and hurt others wasent taught in Church or at School but by a single mother in the 60s with 4 mouths to feed. Now days every where ya go and everything ya do someone is out to rip ya off or hurt ya. Marriage is a joke to be taken lightly families dont back each other kids are taught with a TV and video games and theres so much selfishness that its come to stupidity is the norm. Yes it sounds awful like liberal hippy crap but some where along the way we got to start caring and thinking about each other. If ya know someone that is not quite right help them if your kid or a neighbor is obsessed with video games go throw a ball with them. Teach dont preach most know how ya just got to put down the dollar bill and reach for the real prize. When your dying and alone that fat wallet wont comfort you. If this society put as much effort into our family and friends as we do making money think of how great we could get along. Mike B. politics ant got a thing to do with it. Its the full break down of giving a shit. The only thing all those wack jobs have in common is they didnt. And thats all our fault.

Re: “Reader: Did we forget what a disaster is?

WOW the incline? Really? Not a disaster from where Im looking. Disaster funds come in two ways. Emergency and then later Grants. I think that pretty much says it all. The first to rescue ya the second to put ya back togethe. But not for Recreation the Incline is recreation.

Re: “Reader: Demand a return to "regular order"

Personally I see the division of this Country coming from the selfishness of this Country. Very few see the WE in We the People. All there seeing or are concerned with is the ME. They concern themselves in what they personally can get from Voting and our Government and are very disappointed when someone else gets something they dont want or think is needed. Campaigns use this to build a base and if that base is strong enough then they win elections. A Politician once said "ask not what our Country can do for you but ask what you can do for our Country" That no longer applies very few see whats best for all of us they only see themselves.Very few Politicians see that they represent all the people there only catering to there base. Voting could change things but good luck in getting folks to think of the masses and not just themselves.

Re: “Reader: You're either here legally, or you're not

You do know that when those documents were wrote there was no legal or illegal immigration. Also 46 of the 52 signers were born here as English citizens.The other 7 were not. Also in 1790 Congress passed the first immigration law that said if you reside here in the same place for 2 years and kept your residence for one year you could become a citizen. It was called the Naturalization act of 1790. Just saying. .

Re: “The Broadmoor stalls on deal to buy the city's Rosemont Reservoir

Why purchase it when they know once they own enough of the city Council, Mayors office and County Government it will be given to them.
