VinoTinto 3 days, 11 hours ago on Supreme Court extends same-sex marriage nationwide

I realized I meant Judicial Branch after I posted.

What remains, however, is it is the law of the land and nobody gives a crap about this poor Christian sob story. If Christians can't follow the law then they should jump in the lion exhibit next time they're at the zoo.

In short, neener neener, you lost, good prevails and the nation is changing for the better!!!


VinoTinto 4 days, 6 hours ago on Supreme Court extends same-sex marriage nationwide

The Supreme Court is the Legislative Branch of government, so this victory has gone through all the checks and balances necessary. Let's not forget what makes the U.S. great: SEPARATION OF CHURCH AND STATE. I am sorry that Christians do not feel comfortable with the ruling, but same sex people pay the same amount of taxes as everybody else, why shouldn't they be afforded the same rights? Talk about taxation without representation. I think this ruling underscores what most Americans think: Christians are a hateful bunch of schmucks that hide behind their religion to spew hate at whomever, whenever it's convenient. To sum up again, get used to it, you lost, and nobody is sympathetic to Christians hiding behind HATE to propel their agenda through the legal system.


VinoTinto 4 days, 8 hours ago on Supreme Court extends same-sex marriage nationwide

It's the law of the land. Quit with the psycho-babble and learn how to accept it. You can argue this all you want, but IT'S THE LAW OF THE LAND - THE SUPREMES HAVE SPOKEN! The last 10 days has been horrible for conservatives ... who are going to have to learn have to deal with gay marriage, The Affordable Care Act and living without the confederate flag. To sum up, you lost!


VinoTinto 1 week, 4 days ago on Letter - Don’t trade parking spaces for left-turn lane

I completely disagree. Not having a turn lane will create gridlock traffic, increase pollution from idling vehicles and compromise pedestrian safety. It will ruin the downtown shopping experience.


VinoTinto 3 weeks, 6 days ago on Blackman retires, reluctantly, as sheriff’s sergeant

Turner is a petty little man who is a liability to Walla Walla County. His mismanagement of his office, lack of fiscal responsibility and threatening nature towards everyone, including the commissioners, are the reasons why he no longer manages the county jail. He is not a good man and Walla Walla can do better.


VinoTinto 1 month ago on Letter - Helping people in poverty benefits all

This is a complex issue, but let's separate the homeless from the bums. My primary residence is in San Francisco and we throw a lot of money at the problem creating a magnet for homeless people nationwide. It is heart breaking to see able-bodied men and women tagging out of society and not engaging with the rest of us. I think donating food to the homeless is better than giving cash, because typically the homeless will convert money into drugs and alcohol; leading to anti-social behavior that is unsavory. Let's not become their enablers. The goal should be temporary housing coupled with employment training programs and substance abuse counseling to get them off the streets.


VinoTinto 2 months, 1 week ago on Letter - Clinton’s lack of respect for ‘rule of law’ distressing

But because the Republicans and Tea Baggers are far more corrupt and stupid, you should get used to hearing Madame President.


VinoTinto 2 months, 1 week ago on Walla Walla house fire seen as possible arson

This is crazy! What was used to start the fire? Are there any suspects? Everyone in the community should keep an eye out for themselves and neighbors. At that time of night this is premeditated murder not just arson. This is terrible.


VinoTinto 4 months, 1 week ago on Letter - Don’t remove traffic signal at Clinton Street

I wholeheartedly agree. So what will ultimately happen:

  1. It will be removed
  2. Accidents and possibly deaths will occur
  3. The City will have to replace the traffic light, and eat the costs for moving it and replacing it.

Oh, and this just in most states don't use roundabouts, so it's confusing to tourists too. This is honestly stupidity at wirk here. We are not a car first society. Let pedestrians cross safely!!! Honestly, are their any adults running Walla Walla?
