I would again remind the liberals posting here that Utah, which is governed
almost entirely by conservatives (some of them Democrats) is one of the most
economically sound states in the union.Isn't that surprising!
Re: Mugabe ACWORTH, GA"Someone should remind the GOP Speakers that,
"they did not build it," the strength of this nation's economic
strength waa built on the free Slave labor."Yes, someone should
remind the voters of the liberal's opinion on who built our nation.Who better to carry that message than Mr. Obama. Of course even he would
reject your claim.
Chaffetz...ignored by the majority of the Convention delegates. Absolutely
hilarious! I'm still chuckling...
@ worf 5:40 p.m. Aug. 28, 2012There is corruption here too.A serpent in the garden... nah!!? Impossible.
@ JoeBlow 11:23 a.m. Aug. 28, 2012The GOP abandoned common sense and
rational thought yrs ago.
Bruin -- did you know that Ron Paul has one of the highest totals of EARMARKS in
Texas? That's right. He sticks them into bills, that he knows he
won't vote for.In Utah, Rob Bishop is our King of Pork. That Bridge to Nowhere? Palin kept the money.
Liberal philosophy has ruined the economy where they used to live,-so many have
moved to Utah. Many immigrants move here, because of corrupt leaders
making life difficult in their native country. So what do they do here?---Vote
in more corrupt leaders, and now our country is declining.Some
people never learn.

And here he is! The DuKakis convert from his playing days at BYU
kicking field goals. Now he belongs to the "true" political
religion! The Tea Party! Too bad his new religion is
going out of style already. Not really. I mean, the
"too bad" part.
UtahBruin,"....you assume Mrs. Love has a "Giddy
Fascination" about firearms, because she strikes up a casual conversation
about a mans weapon and right to bear arms. You call her a "Hypocrite",
and why actually?"You have me confused with someone else on the
second score. I didn't call her a hypocrite. But based on her own words as
quoted by the Deseret News, she did strike me as having a giddy fascination with
firearms. Somewhat in the intellectual tradition of Sarah Palin.
@Well ReadIn response to your handle. I guess not so much. I guess
you were one of those un-americans who thought it alright to sit back and let
someone invade our land. You felt that justice should not be served, because it
was, as you say "unfunded". You say that the republicans have not told
"the rest of the story"......Why don't we have a
conversation about ear-marks. You dems are dang good at hiding those on page
1000 of a bill. Why don't the dems "tell the rest of the story".
We all would love to hear about all the tax increases and cuts from all the
other things you promise only to be moot because of your thousands of ear
marks.And in regards to the national debt. It has doubled under
Obama, can't blame that on a war, it is a small piece for the justification
of America. If you are unhappy with unfunded wars, Afghanastan is always
looking for new residents.
Romney and the republicans seem to forget who started two unfunded wars and
passed an unfunded prescription drug bill. Does anyone think that Obama if at
fault for almost 8 years of unfunded wars before he was elected president?How much of the national debt occurred when George W was the president?
It seems to me that the republicans have not told "the rest of
It is laughable to read some of these comments. Craig Clark, Happy Valley, it
is comical to read these post. I love how you assume your knowledge of the
incident reported here, it was a related story. Yet, you assume Mrs. Love has a
"Giddy Fascination" about firearms, because she strikes up a casual
conversation about a mans weapon and right to bear arms. You call her a
"Hypocrite", and why actually? She supports our 2nd Amendment rights,
where is the hypocrisy? And Happy is comparing out right murder, with a fire
caused by a target shooter in Saratoga Springs. Even your left winger saviors
are alright with target shooting. The big race to ban and chase for gun control
by even you left wingers is the killing of innocent people. At least that is the
cry every time something bad happens. Hypocrisy Happy? Choose the side you
would like to be on, don't just throw things out because it sounds cool in
your own mind. You just went backwards about your own stance. Fire and Murder
are not equal. Plus the target shooter reported the fire and took
responsibility for it. Murderers don't do that.
If carrying a Glock 9mm is what makes this home for Mia Love, her view of what
America is about is vacuous for someone who wants to be a Federal lawmaker. I
know I'm raining on her parade on the day she's the toast of the town
in Tampa but when she gets back home, she might want to beef up her resume with
an evening adult education course in American civics.
"At a cellphone store, Love said she spotted a man openly carrying a gun in
a holster and couldn't stop staring.'He said, Does this make you
uncomfortable?' I said, No. And I said, 'Is that a Glock?' And he
said 'yes. A 26?' And he said yes. 'A 9mm?' He said yes. And
I said, Great gun for a woman. That's exactly what I carry. That's why
this is home.Glad to see we're in agreement Rifleman,
Mia's patting a man (Just like the Provo Mall Guy) on the back for
flaunting his weapons in public to get a reaction, why else ask 'Does this
make you uncomfortable?'
Re: JoeBlow Far East USA, SC" .... However, when the guy went walking
around the Provo Mall last year with a rifle, ... "Yes, you
absolutely correct, and every responsible gun owner fully agrees with you. The
man in the Provo Mall you mentioned does not represent your typical gun owner.
Truth be known your typical gun owner with a concealed carry permit leaves his
or her handgun home the vast majority of the time because they are heavy and
poke the person carrying it in the ribs or back. They have no intention or
secret dream of saving the world from some crazed moviegoer.
Rifleman, I fully support gun owners who are competent people who make a habit
of honing their skills on the range. I certainly know people that make me feel
safer knowing that they are carrying. I also know some that are always packing,
but lack the maturity to grasp the magnitude of the power that they hold. They
scare the heck out of me.However, when the guy went walking around
the Provo Mall last year with a rifle, or when the guy showed up at a political
rally with a gun strapped to his leg in full view, the 2nd Amendment people
fully supported them.Yes, I am also sure that they are the minority
of gun owners but that is the time to stand up against that kind of mentality,
whether or not it was legal.Gun advocates should be much more vocal
in policing their own.
"....I said, ‘Is that a Glock?’ And he said yes. A 26? And he
said yes. A 9mm? He said yes. And I said, ‘Great gun for a woman.
That’s exactly what I carry.’ That’s why this is home."I suppose every politician needs to sound like one of the down home
folks when out on the campaign trail. But if Mia Love aspires to legislate in
Washington, she should more depth to her than a giddy fascination with firearms.
Re: Happy Valley Heretic Orem, UT"we should get rid of the police and
arm everybody cause the police are only good at ...."No, only a
fool would make that suggestion. The intelligent man however knows and
understands the limitations placed on the police.On June 2008 the
Supreme Court ruled that the police did not have a constitutional duty to
protect a person from harm, even a woman who had obtained a court-issued
protective order against a violent husband making an arrest mandatory for a
violation.And no, those of us with concealed carry permits have no
absolutely no intention of saving your day. We expect you to use a cell phone
when your life or the life of a loved one is on the line.
JoeBlow"Hope she does not try to bring it into the convention center.
No handguns are allowed in."What about high powered rifles
like the ones folks brought to Obama speeches by patriots, or don't they
actually trust everybody being armed make everyone safer, where's the
Hope the does not try to bring it into the Republican National Convention.They have banned handguns. (as well as umbrellas)
Rifleman so your answer is after getting rid of the EPA, we should get rid of
the police and arm everybody cause the police are only good at "putting up
crime scene tape and taking photos of the deceased."What I find
humorous is her hypocrisy. Not your story of how a gun could have
"saved the day," cause I could find a dozen more where some gun lovers
children were the enemy in the home of an indiscriminate gun.
Hope she does not try to bring it into the convention center. No
handguns are allowed in.
Busch Gardens is really fun.... just sayin'.
I'm warm and fuzzy all over now!
Ms. Love's position on guns has made me very hesitant to vote for her
Re: Happy Valley Heretic Orem, UT"Wow, gun knowledge is going to save
America."I don't see anything funny about it, and neither
did Deanna Patrick. Deanna Patrick, a 32-year old Dallas, Texas woman, called
911 on August 17th begging for help while her ex husband was beating her.
Police did respond ..... 2 days later. They found her deceased in the bathtub
of her residence.Had she gone for her handgun like the home owner in
Springville did she'd still be alive today. The only thing I find humorous
is people that don't understand the concept of police response time.Note to our anti 2nd Amendment friends: In all fairness it doesn't
usually take police 2 days to respond to a 911 call. They always will, however,
have time to put up crime scene tape and take photos of the deceased.
Wow, gun knowledge is going to save America. Kinda ironic that careless
gunplay, nearly burnt Saratoga Springs up, and the evil feds had to step-in.I believe it was school trust land that was burned up too, just like she wants
to do with public schools.Too funny.
