The word Conservative, especially in the most recent context, is an oxymoron in the most extreme definition. Eh, Mr Bishop?

I'm not sure Dan enlightened us with all the facts in his column. Was the developer who was "persecuted" by the EPA trying to build in a flood plain? If so, everyone should thank the EPA, especially the poor homeowners who would find their homes floating into the Santa Clara River in the next flash flood. We've seen enough of that, thank you.

I'm not sure if you are aware that Dan Liljinquist isn't an elected Representative in Utah.

You said, "A representative who won't fight to protect basic needs of his constituents (for example, clean water), is aggressively working against the success of his district, and needs to be stopped"...

Well he's not a "Representative". He resigned in 2011 to run against Hatch (but lost) and hasn't campaigned to be a Representative since.

Maybe you are starting your anti-Liljinquist campaign a little early. He hasn't even announced that he's running for anything (although I suspect he will run again someday).

He's not our "representative". He just writes an oped column for the DMN every once in a while.

But what does a person in Chicago know about Utah politics... Or clean water...

Like our Republican "Delegate" so blindly & close-mindedly said at the last caucus...

"If the EPA is for it, them I'm against it!"

Whatever happened to Good v. Bad, Right v. Wrong?

Try not judging EVERYBODY who's Reppublican... by something one person said in your Caucucs meeting.

That's painting with a pretty broad brush.

If I judged every Democrat by something I say I heard a Democrat say... that would be ridiculous (just as your broad judgements based on this one person's comment are).

IF the guy in your caucus meeting actually said what you say he said... I'm sure he has his reasons (and they are probably based on something he perceives as "Bad"). You may not agree... that's all right. But don't then judge everybody with an R by their name based on something this one person said (unless of course you think one person saying it then adds to your lexicon of prejudice stereotypes for his "Type"... so they can those judgements can then readily be used on ANYONE of his "Type").

I think we should try to get away from that kind of political stereotype based judgement here.

Excuse me?

but didn't you just accuse me of wanting to ban soda drinks and transfatty foods?

And as for that (1) Republican who said that?
[and YES, he said it - in fact, he's in my High Priest Group.]
He is now a Delegate, and speaks for me, and 3,700 other people in South Davis County.

Liljenquist was right on target with his recent column, and Maria Klingelhoffer is the one who is off base with this issue. The EPA is an agency out of control, and frequently stomps on the liberties and property rights of innocent citizens. Congress needs to do some serious reining in.
