Mr. Blackman, apparently, has amazing powers to read the minds and hearts of those who support Union organizations. His conclusion that supporters are afraid of freedom sounds like the usual talking points from ALEC. I wonder if Mr. Blackman has any experience with Unions, either as a worker or employer?????? It is perhaps a loose comparison, but I often wonder why the collective good should be supported only voluntarily in Union membership, yet all other forms of paying for the collective good are compulsory. We don't choose which taxes to pay to fund projects and we shouldn't be able to take the negotiated benefits without paying our fair share. If you don't want to participate and work in a Union organized shop, don't apply for the position. That's freedom of choice that effects you and does not infringe on the rights of those who already subscribe to union membership.
So where is your experience with a labor union, other than anecdotes?
You forgot to mention Graybills on Reser Rd. Interesting that you equate children today and less interested in outdoor activities, while you site the fact that those activities are no longer available. All the pools are gone, not because kids aren't interested but because adults, i.e. voters, decided not to fund those activities.
If a person is willing to quit work and live in poverty because they just don't believe everyone should have health insurance, then they should re-think their commitment to freedom. Yes, one could apply for medicaid and let someone else pay for their care, but there are strict requirements that would preclude one from the pursuit of freedom, life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, for sure.
Considering this is a major highway intersection, I doubt that those passing through the area will be well versed in roundabouts. A very small minority are in favor of roundabouts, placing one at the biggest and busiest intersection in the area doesn't seem like a viable option.
PGA - You sir are an unmentionable. Apparently your mother never taught you and several of you cohorts here, that if you can't say something nice and/or constructive, you should shut up. It is difficult to understand that those of you who have never done one positive thing to assist in veterans healthcare, sit at your computers and critique those who do. Many of you have a unique opportunity to serve on the Community Task Force. The MAC committee or just step up and volunteer. So as soon as you have educated yourselves and provided some of your valuable time to the system, LET US HEAR BACK FROM YOU.
Or it could be that the gerrymandering in Republican controlled states created the perfect setting for Republicans again. If you control the district lines, you control the vote. Not really a very representative system.
And there is no evidence that in either of these cases, the person shot and killed in seconds was menacing. Look at the video.
Namvet: You are the biggest race baiter on this forum. And on top of that you simply cannot have a conversation without attempts to denigrate and belittle other's opinions. Take your comments and stand in front of a mirror and recite, and maybe you will learn something. Probably not.
Just curious, namvet, did you express these same views when the so-called patriot militia shut down I-15 in Nevada and spent their days waving guns in the face of BLM employees???? You do know not one of them was ever arrested and/or charged, right? A a couple went on the slaughter two Las Vegas police officers. I wish someone could explain how that works. Old White Radical, gets a pass, and a 12 yr old is shot and left to bleed out in TWO seconds.
