I have little sympathy for males or females who cheat on their spouse. Ward has shown himself, at least 3 times, to be a liar. First, when he used a false name, second when he said he was separated and third when he pretended to be dead. In addition he completely went back on his marriage vows. That having been said, I believe that the Navy has a "morality" code or some kind of a code that applies here. I am sure that he must be aware of it. I believe that he should be handled according to the code.
Don, according to Tom, the baby was "lost." Medical records should provide evidence as to the loss. While she did not originally have revenge in mind, her actions after learning about the false death, well????????????/
I also do not give much credibility to stories that come from unnamed sources. Why wouldn't the woman tell her story to the newspaper unless her name was withheld?
My right to assemble is totally immaterial?????????????????? I beg your pardon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! As I said in my first comment on this string. There are studies that prove that people are predisposed to respond to issues in certain ways. I believe this string adds support to those studies.
While some are willing to apply the term Nazi, Hitler, dictator to a mayor who wants to outlaw large sugary drinks, I am more concerned about militant groups that hold "military maneuvers" on weekends, people who want to limit our right to vote by making voting places less accessible, people who belong to secret societies like the KKK, etc.
View the issues as you may. I will say no more on this issue.
When you have a private sale of a car you must notify the State of Arizona so that they can change their records concerning the ownership of the vehicle. I don't know about fishing boats -- never tried to sell one. However, they do have a license and perhaps their registration is the same as cars.
No one wants anyone to register sale of generally non dangerous household items. That pressure cooker only became dangerous once it had been filled with explosives and a timer. Although, I must admit that I was once given a pressure cooker as a gift. After reading the instructions and warnings, I decided not to use it and gave it away. My concern was that with my tendency to have "things go wrong" the pressure cooker would probably go wrong for me.
One more thing. With respect to gun shows. While it is true that commercial dealers might give background checks, what about the private individual you comes for the sole purpose of selling five, ten perhaps only one gun. Do these people run background checks. An individual I know who is an avid gun collector, and goes to many gun shows, and has sold guns at gun shows over many years says all he has to do is walk around in a show with a rifle over his shoulder and he has offers to purchase said rifle. Sometimes that is the way he gets rid of a gun or rifle he no longer wants in his collection.
Nazi, Hitler, dictator. These terms all conjure up pictures of concentration camps, gas ovens, slave labor, use of chemicals, torture, execution without trial, etc. It hardly conjures up someone trying to outlaw large sugary drinks. If you really believe outlawing large sugary drinks is going to lead to the things experienced in dictatorship, you should watch out for the boogey man hiding behind your bedroom door.
Please remember I am not a Bloomberg fan,
You should know that Hitler came along at just the right time. Because of the terms of World War I, Germany was in dire straits. He came along and gave them hope. Misguided, yes, but at least a hope for a way out.
No one, I repeat no one wants to take away the right of law abiding, mentally sound people. Does not wanting background checks mean you favor gun ownership by criminals and the mentally unsound?
While you want to protect your right to bear arms, what about my right to free and peaceful assembly? Don't I have a right to go to the theater or mall free from worry of being shot? Don't children have a right to go to school free of the fear of being murdered?
I wasn't going to comment on this issue. However, something keeps nagging at me. So here I go.
There are studies that illustrate that most of us are pre-programmed to react to an issue in certain ways. The conservative will usually take the conservative view whereas the liberal will usually go with the liberal view. I believe the comments in this blog prove that point insofar that gun supporters will come out strongly in favor of their position no matter what the facts may show.
The Payson Roundup articles about the Rappaport incident say the following, "He said that without his permission a gun control group launched by New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg had also listed him as a member." And the reaction of a commentator in this blog, "The may of Star Valley is an associate of Michael Bloomberg? Someone who sides with extremist views of the self-styled dicotator of New York City?" This reaction is a bit extreme! Read what Rappaport said.
The Roundup article also says "He (Rappaport) said the letter represented his personal opinion and that he never implied it represented the council's opinion." Perhaps it was wrong for Rappaport to use town stationery. However, he has a right to a personal opinion and he has a right to express it. I do believe that freedom of speech is guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution.
The article also explains, "I've (Rappaport) been an NRA member for 26 years. This is not about the 2nd amendment. This is about closing the gap at gun shows--that's the only thing I supported."
Mr. Rappaport also says that he sent the letter to Flake and McCain and not the White House. He also states that he never joined "Mayors Against Illega Guns,."
By the way, I am not a fan of Michael Bloomberg. I feel he goes too far. However, I am not going to refer to him as a dictator or a Nazi. Those types of terms appeal to the emotions and not to reason.
Well, now, if you want some real news how about reading about the Jodi Arias trial?
As far as North Korea is concerned, I wonder how far they would go if the western media stopped covering all of the propaganda? If North Korea stopped making the news with all of its threats, would it stop threatening?
Back in 2012, perhaps at the November PSWID Board meeting, mention was made of an investigation/inquiry by the Arizona State Auditor. Has that investigation been completed? What were the findings?
I think PSWID needs some transparency!! Many good feelings came out of the Town Hall that was led by Tommie Cline Martin. I hope PSWID does not squander those good feelings by continuing the inverted triange approach that it has used in the past. The inverted triangle was discussed at the Town Hall and easily describes PSWID--decisions made without adequate information given to the general public and without public support.
Pat, once again, you made me :-)
I think the information should be encrypted. Think of all the havoc that was caused by someone breaking into the Bashas' system. Getting driver's nformation would be far more dangerous as identity theft becomes very possible.
