"If firearms did not exist anywhere....those people predisposed to instability would choose rocks or sticks"
I would use a butcher knife duct taped to the end of a nice long broomstick. But that is just me.
I personally think that gun laws should be tailored to and decided by communities. I don't like them myself but understand that there are those who like to target shoot, hunt or just collect guns. However, a few gun advocates seem to have an all or nothing attitude. Could there be a middle ground. For example, why do private citizens need to own assault weapons? Should there be a requirment that gun owners show some understanding of safety practices and a degree of proficiency in using their weapons? Could there be a civil discussion that addresses concerns of both sides? What's the opinion of law enforcement who have to deal with the misuse of guns. I like Chris Rock's suggestion to charge $1,000 per bullet.
iPeople like you are the problem..
Go back where you came from and please take your friends that think like you with you... Maybe you can get Dennis D- con to leave with you , take him too, Please..
People I talk to around the U.S., tell me they wish their states had the same gun laws Az has...
Liberals stand for nothing and fall for everything .. they fell for Obumanut ....
Invoking the tired worn out cliche, it is the people who misuse guns and injure or kill people, not the gun.
If firearms did not exist anywhere....those people predisposed to instability would choose rocks or sticks!
Oh, and retrorv, I believe Mr. Danehy is where he always is. In HIS column space. If you hurry maybe you can catch him.
Great column Rynski. Kill the messenger seems to be the prevailing zeitgeist these days.
I like your style reporter, keep it up...even though it may seem no one but Negative Nellies crawl out from under their collective rock to comment. There are plenty of us out here in nowhereville who enjoy your wit and flair.
Now, down to business.
Item one on the Radmax road to creative funding for the border fence, tax the living shit out of all mariscos roadside ptomaine emporiums and Sonoran hotdog stands. ;)
Item two, collect a $7000 dollar fee from ALL desiring temporary or permanent residency in the good ol' USA, thus eliminating the dreaded 'coyotes' and the 'trek o' death' in the des. Win win.
You're welcome. :) See ya next month media maven.
"It might even put me at risk."
I think the Sinaloa cartel is more concerned about the fence cutting into their profits rather than you being a "xenophobic, racist hick". The world does not revolve around you. Things happen regardless of your misguided "feelings". Like this:
I don't oppose the fence because I am too cheap to pay for it. I oppose the fence because it sends the message that I am a xenophobic, racist hick. I believe this works against me when I travel to the neighboring state of Sonora. It might even put me at risk.
thanks, g. dinardo!
and YES! sawyer will be helping with all the columns. he likes to get his nose into everything (whether he's invited or not). he especially enjoyed meeting opie and guinness.
How great to see ms. Gargulinski! Will Sawyer be helping with any columns?
While I can appreciate the necessity of pig sanctuaries and rescues for pet pigs, there was no mention of the animal abuse ingrained in our agricultural system as soon as a pig is no longer seen as a pet. What we do for our pets is usually wonderful although no doubt there are exceptions. Humans take much pleasure in caring for and befriending many animals who make their way into our hearts and minds and this often results in our receiving an abundance of warm fuzzys as well as benefiting the pet. But the fact that most people can off-handedly ignore the bleak, cruel and isolating life of a factory farm pig---an animal whose death ends very violently and often very painfully is rarely juxtaposed with the enamored relationship humans have with their pets. A factory pig is an animal that is not only highly intelligent and social but one who is deprived of basic amenities from the moment of birth until his death, amenities such as sunshine, fresh air, rooting, nesting, companionship and playing because a factory pig is viewed in agriculture as a means to an end. Period. And if the pig is female, her life is often confined to repeated pregnancies in gestation stalls so small she cannot turn around for months at a time; and is required to lay in her own filth often gnawing at metal and her own body parts due to frustration and boredom. The life of a factory farm pig is nothing more than a life of hell.
hahahah! thanks, radmax. i am especially glad you clued me in on that pig in a poke stuff - someone just tried to sell me one this morning! but, alas, i bought a new treadmill instead.
thanks, as always, for your witty comments!
Got a column Rynski! All I can say is it's about time media maven...and congratulations!
Thanks for dispelling the old 'lay down with pigs' axiom, and I'll leave you with this tidbit of sage advice, never buy a pig in a poke. ;)
