I can definately tell a difference between different snows. It's not really scientific on my part, but this snow seemed much lighter than the previous large snow storm we had. When shoveling, the prior snowstorm (4-5 years ago??) was much heavier to shovel. It just seemed to have more moisture in it.
Again, this is all theory. These may all be great in NY City, but not WW. We have how many major corporations here? Key Tech and Nelson Irrigation? A majority of our commerce is found through small busiess. What will these smaller guys do with a higher minimum wage? They will lay people off and work harder themselves. It's common sense. Again, on a massive corporate level, all of your points may hold true. Not in our little corner of the world though.
Paco. Please let this family grieve and not turn this into one of your rants. Evil people will do evil things, regardless of gun control. China has heavily regulated gun ownership laws. Generally, private citizens can't own guns. I read a few months ago about a man who went on a rampage with a KNIFE at a primary school, killing children and injuring many more. Evil people will find ways to do evil things, regardless of whether a gun is available or not.
Let's not side step around the truth here downhillracer. It's in no way hypicritical to state that we have a problem with drivers who are uninsured/unlicensed. We have a large agricularal presence, which in turn gives our area a large population of hispanic farm workers, some of which are undocumented. They are not able to get licenses and frankly don't want to pay for insurance. There is no reason to until they get in an accident. This is the truth of the matter. Nothing insensitive about it.
Does anybody have anyway to get a hold of Mr. Courtmanch by chance?
I disagree completely with this statement. In my mind, it's pretty simple. A felony was being committed, and a business owner protected himself and his property with the use of force, which is lawful. It's doesn't matter whether either party is black, yellow, brown, white, or red.
I can tell you though that if a caucasian was the person committing the felony, there wouldn't be intimidating demonstrations in front of the store. That much I can promise.
I agree with most of your comments, but this one is ridiculous Namvet. This man has poured his career, and life for that matter, into Lincoln when others weren't willing. He has been a voice for kids who don't fit into the mainstream educational system. What is another 6 months going to do? He probably has enough sick leave built up to take that off anyway. Give the man the benefit of the doubt.
Now you're just being a crazy tea party republican!! There couldn't be anything more than coincidences in this situation!
(Please recognize the satire in the above statement.)
This is very well said. Thank you for being reasonable!
When do we stop Peggy? Do we just keep borrowing and kicking the can down the road? It's called shrinking our massive government and trimming the fat. We obviously need to pay our bills, but let's not pass the buck to the next generation.
