If land owners want to develop THEIR property, who are any of you to say they can't? Don't want the property developed? Buy it from them at a mutually agreeable price and turn it into a nature preserve.
Conservatives are, or should be, people who want the Constitution to be followed. If the Constitution doesn't give the government power to do something, conservatives say government shouldn't do it.
It took a Constitutional amendment (the 18th) to give government the power to outlaw alcohol, and another amendment (the 21st) to make alcohol legal again. Can someone point me to the part of the Constitution that allows any other substance to be banned? If not, then Congress has no business banning marijuana or any other substance.
Likewise, absent authority from the Constitution on the definition of marriage, Congress has no business legislating that, either. Johnson is right on these issues and lots more.
dfclapp, sounds like a laundry list of reasons to vote FOR Gary Johnson!
anniebelle, the day the politicians remove the requirement for me to show ID in order to buy alcohol or purchase a firearm ... that's the day I'll support removing the requirement to show ID in order to vote. Not one day before.
GREAT editorial. It's about time we had a "right side" editor who will stand up to liberal "Republicans" who are as bad or worse than Democrats. The former editor kissed up to incumbents no matter how egregious their betrayal of the principles they supposedly stood for. I'm glad we now have someone who has the guts to call a RINO a RINO.
Welcome. I'm looking forward to a change from the previous editor who preferred RINOs, and especially incumbents, over any newcomer who actually wanted to make a dent in the size of government.
You know, Ron Littlefield could have spared the citizens all this turmoil by just resigning when a recall petition was provided to the Election Commission containing the signatures of more voters than voted for him in the last election. We could have had a new, productive mayor all this time. But it seems to be an ego thing with him.
And he is absolutely right about all of it!
We have a problem in this country with too many people wanting something for nothing. Pay the fee or learn your lesson the hard way. If I neglect to pay my insurance company the premiums for coverage and wreck my car, tough luck for me. Reality sure is a b!+ch.
I guess maybe they will pay the fee next time. Hard lesson to learn, but they shouldn't expect fire protection for free. Those of us who live in city limits pay property taxes for our fire protection. If you don't, and you don't pay the fee, why would you expect the fire department to come to your aid?
