Steve, we "tree huggers" are winning the battle! Just look around...everywhere, all over the country you now can see windmill farms producing power for millions of homes and industries. Solar energy is getting better and better, saving millions to consumers. Cars are now less polluting than ever...and getting better and more efficient. Research is advancing in obtaining power from the oceans. Green energy, all over the world is thriving, producing millions of jobs and benefiting consumers who are now saving money from cheap power. Programs for reforestation are promoted worldwide as we speak. Let's keep at it with resolve and dedication and stop the incredible damage to the environment by insensitive polluters . We are on the moral side of this debate and we will win for the benefit of Humanity.
The "VAST" majority of our Walla Walla community, both liberalas and conservative are nice people who are concerned about keeping it as one of the best towns to live in America. Nobody needs to move "to the westside" . We liberals are contributing to our society in all wakes of life, and as much as conservatives have. We are here to stay! Disagreeing in sexual orientation is not the same as refusing to serve a customer just because of sexual orientation. Likewise giving respectfull customer service to a gay person does not mean agreeing with his or her sexual orientation.
I just cannot imagine one of my gay friends treated with the incredible rejection of being denied service at any Walla Walla business because of their sexual orientation. So far it hasn't happened, and I hope it will never, never happens.
Sorry to disapoint you! I just refused to be dragged into the mud hole where some poeple role over in a delight of joy.
I'm a liberal who has voted for Mike Hewitt many times. He is a nice person with whom I now disagree; strongly enough I will not vote for him in the future. He does not represent the modern reality of the Country nor the reality of Walla Walla of today and its future.
It is ironic that a man with such mentality "welcomes" all these "liberals" to his Walla Walla Nursery when in fact he wishes they should be shopping somewhere else, with people of their own class. I've noticed that the overwhelming majority of his staff are migrant workers which is positive. One only hope he is paying them a decent (minimun) salary and grants them proper health care benefits.
Lorne, I find your comments endorsing ideas such as "minorities favoring minority businesses" reminicent of the "separate but equal" racist slogan of yore. This is un- American! Yes, you are an ouspoken lady, and you are very frank about your disdain for others who are not of your "class". By your comments it can be deducted that you are emblematic of the "new conservativism" which is turning the GOP into a shrinking tent. No liberals allowed! As an "outspoken Christian business owner" we, the growing minority members of this community expect this "brave lady" to reveal the name of her business so we can avoid it like a plague.
Sorry, should I call you NORMAL?
You just turned unglued with the truth. Sorry, namvet, you, and your dear friend carcrazy are not going to drag decent people into the mud where you guys are seemingly very, very comfortable indeed. You guys have the advantage there. Stay there my friends. Other than this I have no response, not now nor in the future.
Norman, you just can not stand the truth! You seem to love the word "bizarre" and so far you conviniently has tossed it around as a shield to cover up your not so smart imagination. Your contributions to a civil discourse are more of a platform to display your disgust for others who happen to opine differently. I can see you salivating at the next day UB to pounce with your personal attacks and to gleefuly hurt the feelings of decent people. I do not mind your vituperous and gratuitous insults to liberals in general. Birds of a feather flock together, and you, Rush and Gleen's cheap shots only help us win elections. Please, say something smart worth debating...if you can.
