On Obama: the fall
Excellent dustyd, much better to converse with an adult. I do not deny that there is global warming taking place. My take is how much is man-made pollution causing warming and how much is it the natural cycle between ice ages?As for the rest of Charle's points about the Presdident's recent record; budget, sequester, gun control, Red Line in Syria and Benghazi - Obama has not been a succesful leader yet this year. That was the main point.
Name calling? I know, try to make an opposing point and cite evidence to refute the author's statements.
On Wis. air show canceled after Blue Angels grounded
Time to let the sun in on this discussion. The Blue Angels and Thunderbirds' purpose is to get the public excited about military service. The goal is attracting the highly qualified people necessary to operate equipment like this. Yeah it is entertainment, but it's a more friendly version of shock and awe to the world promoting our country. The only entitlement U.S. taxpayers have is to a strong national defence. Everything else is assistance and that should be more like training wheels and less like a safety net in my opinion.
On Capitol debate looms on abortion
Killing babies is choice, Marriage is not between a man and a woman, a child is not the parents' it belongs to the state, there is no truth. These beliefs as stated are broken down to their basic element and held by a growing number of Americans. Anyone ever read 1984 or Brave New World?
On “WE WANT A VOTE!” We deserve a vote on gun controls!!
In an effort to stay on topic, RAF made a clear, succinct example to Mr. Eyster. In my opinion, Harry Reid wants several RINO's to break away and vote with the majority of Democrats. Not all mind you. About 10 to 15 Democrat Senators need to vote against this bill so they will have some cover for the next election in their conservative districts. Instead of really enacting a law that would actually reduce the liklihood of these tragedies repeating, politicians need to show some action. Don't just stand around thinking about this problem, do something. Or as the Gov. in Blazing Saddles said; We gotta protect or phoney baloney jobs! The mental health debate seems to me to be the area that stands the most improvement but has more individual rights issues.
On Wisconsin residents weigh in on gay marriage debate
I do believe in God as revealed through the Bible and I see no evidence that God is sexist or whatever -ist you throw out. Government should be out of the marriage benefit business in my opinion and instead take that tax break and apply it to parents of children under 18 instead. The nurture of children was the primary focus of the marriage benfits, but with more and more people not making traditional choices, laws have to get more specific. IF we are going to fight over the name of marriage and its meaning, then shift the hand-outs to those who need it.
On Police: Janesville boy's bb gun causes scare
If the BB gun was loaded, he does need a lesson in reponsibility. Otherwise here is a 12 year old outside on vaction, running around using his imagination and not staring at the TV all day. Living outside the city limits, I am used to seeing boys still playing the same way I did 40 years ago. Does anyone else remember what it was like to be a kid?
On "God is with us at worst moments"
This reminds me of Job's would be 'friends' and how we cannot fathom why a loving God allows evil to act.I cannot imagine the extent of grief a parent has when a child dies, but many have to every day from causes ranging from tornados to violence to negligence.The feeling that you are not the first or alone in your grief would be some consolation. As the pastor says; to be a brother or sister who brings flowers, food and a shoulder to lean on is the responsibility of the rest of us.
On Border Patrol under scrutiny for deadly force
I feel bad for this family but the responsibility to protect Mexican citizens is with Mexican authorities. If they weren't so corrupt and sought to protect their own people instead of taking bribes for personal gain, there would be effective border patrols on both sides.
On Wis. voters face tight Senate, presidential races
