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.
Maria KlingelhofferChicagoI'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?
airnautEverett, 00,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.

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.
