John Naughton Again I give you my thanks for acting on a principle. When the posts of people become distracting because of content, morality, lack of interpersonal courtesy, etc., you have a duty to intervene as you have. Ms. Flowers posts definitely distract from the flow of the topic at hand.
I support Don's idea ! Further, perhaps it would not be so bad if we do repopulate the Grizs so long as we make the radical environmentalist live in that territory.
Tom, The Sheriff's office has provided people to operate a pedestrian crossing over the last several years. I do not know what can be done about the parking situation. It is a balance between the need for parking and the convenience of folks wishing to conduct business in the area. The visitors bring dollars. Perhaps on Saturdays "guards" could be provided by some group to patrol the entrance to the P.O.?
Mr. Naughton, Thank you. When I say the following I am speaking from my point of view and not from an intent to insult others: Often I listen to "extremists" about various points of view and think more or less about what was presented. Some remarks give me reason to seriously think. More often, however, I am bored to tears and feel badly for those whose lives are consumed by non-productive veins of thought. As I stated in an earlier post, it could be that it is not Satan behind every bush. Perhaps it is God.
Tom, One gets the impression that the CBD, PETA, and cohorts will soon ask that we live as primitively as our ancestors. By the by, it is unlikely that bears or wolves will soon be stalking pets in Hollywood.:)
Robbin, If a person wishes to do so, one can see plots behind, in front and at the side of every bush ! What you post rings hollow to me. As you posted, each person is free to think and worship in a manner that they choose. I choose to not get excited about groups that have not demonstrated to me an intent to harm or do evil. I see the Shriners Hospitals and parades. I see Masons and Eastern Star members attempting to live as Christians should. Robbin, why not look for intentions that are good. Perhaps it is God behind every bush.
Robbin, I have seen or heard remarks about Masons for many years. My father was a Mason and my mother was in Eastern Star. Both of them were deeply Christian and would never have tolerated things such as those that you cite. "Know them by their deeds." What horrid things have the Masons done that you can personally cite or what credible evidence can you bring. By "credible" I do not mean TV or Tabloid sensationalistic "exposes"? I do not intend to "shoot the messenger" but would require abundant credible evidence.
Ron, One of my more "interesting" thoughts is in regard to the man who may be the worst President that the U.S. has ever had. We citizens elected Obama, therefor we deserve what we have. I suppose that the thought is a little bitter tinged with irony?
Tom, I can not state that you are bitter; if you are "old" so am I. I find that as I age I begin to see things that I have seen before. I try to make sense of things that happened again and again. I try to place things in a moral matrix . I try to label things according to criteria that has been building year upon year. Adding all of these things and others together and cooking them in my mental oven leads to some interesting outcomes. Sometimes the product is bitter but other times it is understanding, judgmental, harsh, gentle, sad, thoughtful, and more. I am less tolerant of the same old excuses, inhumanity , immorality and stupidity, which can lead to responses that might seem "bitter". On the other hand I can be more tolerant of people who are genuine and are trying to improve life but make errors. If all of that is part of becoming "old", I'm game.
A good example of a code enforcement person who is too small for his title ! Unfortunately, we run into government people of similar personality far, far too often. Those folks forget for whom they should be working. One wonders if there are underlying issues....
