Re: ATV's on the streets

I was reading a book the other day and that took place back several years ago. The horse and buggy people were waging war against that danged newfangled contraptions called the auto-mo-bile! That thing ought to be outlawed! No place in a civilized society for such a contraption! It will never last, ...

Re: Gun Control Law Proposals

Who ever it was that said gun control is about power is 100% correct! I am sorry Kerry, usually I see pretty good logic in your ideas and opinions. However this time my friend, I believe you are misguided. The concept of gun control being put forth by the Obama people as a way of fighting crime is a...

Re: Being American

Before you answer Kerry's post (which I think is interesting that no one has yet) think three different scenarios: First scenario: You have a suspect that you know beyond a shadow of a doubt has information of the next 9/11 attack. Would you approve of torture to extract the information that would s...

Re: ATV's on the streets

Seems to me you can cover the entire argument with one statement: ATVs must meet or exceed all the requirements that apply to other street legal vehicles including safety and insurance concerns. But you think ATVs may be a problem. Go to Phoenix! Those street leagle golf carts are all over the place...

Re: SPEARING

I pretty much agree with you Kerry.

I can also remember when the resorts were a summer time on...

I agree with Renee. Protectionism does no one any good. All those questions about their hiring, salary and benefit policies may be good reasons for you to decide rather YOU want to shop there or not. But they are not reasons for the city to turn them down as long as they are within the legal paramet...

Re: State Budget

Totally agree Old Scout. I would add one other thing. When any suspect is picked up or stopped for any reason, status should be determined and if they are found to be here illegibly, they should be deported. Contrary to public belief, it is not illegal to ask for proof of residency. ICE has a progra...
