Young and old women alike should be very afraid of Mike Pence. He will have all of us back in the 1950's era--barefoot and pregnant like it or not! Women will have no rights, walk three paces behind men, receive even lower wages (assuming you will be allowed to work), and NEVER have the right to choose. You get what you vote for or what you do not vote for (if you do not vote)!
Might work? Come now. Indiana has lost its mind a long time ago. The Republican majority proves that. I thought it was interesting listening to "The Man" Mitch on newsmakers the other day. "Only 10% of Hoosier workers are in unions" as his defense of right to work. So being in a minority is cause enough to strip away basic rights? Seems so given Mitch and his parties stand on gay marriage, hispanic ethinic identity and planned parrenthood. After all they are minorities too.
HURRAH!!! Thanks for all you did to get this done. "Impassioned public outcry"!!
Your statement is not entirely true. Indeed, bike lanes that run through the door zone next to parallel-parked cars are unsafe. However, when you refer to "bike lanes that weave in and out of traffic", I assume you mean the lanes that cross dedicated right turn lanes. This is the correct way bicycle lanes should be designed. When cycling on roads without bike lanes, you are supposed to ride in the lane that you would normally use (i.e. the lane that goes straight through). You are not supposed to cross the intersection from the right turn lane.
Wonderful, bravo, everyone! And I find it ironic that the Society of Professional Journalists has not updated their site for almost a year.
Not sure whether to be sad , glad or mad that this is over. Nothing good can come of a one party rule, especially when that one party is the GOP.
These bike lanes are all about show. They don't make biking safer...they make biking less safe. Bike lanes that weave in and out of traffic, bike lanes that run right by parked cars, etc.
In the real world, not the world of politics, this ammounts to putting a mortagage on a paid off property. We the people are selling off an asset which , if we want its use, we will have to pay for. In the end privitization is taking something that belongs to all of us and giving it to a few for a sum of money that will be quickly spent leaving the next generation to figure out how to deal with the mess when the short term gain is spent.
One should be congratulating our Republican leadership for SB 1 which will do far more to save educational dollars by mandating a pay cut across the board for all vet teachers. What a wonderful way to save money without raising taxes.
Inspired Stranger... You need a history lesson... it is the dumbocrats who shove unwanted bills down the publics throats... Thats why they are no longer in power
This is just one step in the right direction for Indiana.
The Republican form of compromse, as it always in when they get in charge, is do it my way or else. Why anyone who has any knowledge of history is surprised by this is beyond me. They have been doing this since the 1920s at least and are not likely to stop anytime soon.
Trust a Republican at your own risk.
Sorry Nick... I meant "you're" Karl Marx. I didn't want to appear too "ignorant", even though I command a Hillbilly Death Squad.
Hey Nick!!! Your Karl Marx!
I am sure that no one will be reading a post this old, but I'm glad that a nuvo staff member took the time to point out that I am not a "real" scientist... He is right... My higher learning accolades where concentrated in world and military history. By the way... Was this last winter cooler than usual??? I think so... But I am not a "real" scientist... Here are a few real scientists that agree with me though-
Atmospheric physicist S. Fred Singer is a skeptic.
German climatologist Hans von Storch is a skeptic.
Myron Ebell, dir. of global warming and environmental policy @ Competitive Enterprise Institute is a skeptic.
Dr. Benny Peiser w/ England's John Moore's Univ. is a skeptic
Jan Veizer, Canada's Top Earth Scientist is a skeptic.
US Assoc. of State Climatologist as a whole are skeptics.
The Russian Academy of Science as a whole are skeptics.
Let's not forget about the 31,487 Scientists who signed The Global Warming Petition Project. That's all folks!
My opinion on marriage in general is this. The religious part is the business of each individual church. They should decide on this among their own people. The states business is with the legal aspect of marriage, that is to say the property rights and insurance issues. In this case, if the state is being what it is supposed to be (religiously neutral ) this sort of thing could not actually even be an issue nor would it have ever been since gays started being more open. however we all know that the gov here at least is not neutral on religion at all. Sooo, until that happens we will indeed have to deal with a majority using religious beliefs as a reason (not an excuse) exercise political power to enforce their religious beliefs. sad really but Hoosier
Have to wonder about the geographic spread of this survey. If it targeted central Indiana (since this is NUVO, it probably does), then I believe it. But come on: 65% of Republicans opposing it? Really? Take the rural areas of the state and everything but Indy-Bloomington, and I'd imagine the support for a marriage amendment is closer to 75 or 80%. Not that I'm endorsing it myself, but it is that population that generates these heavily conservative politicians, by and large.
It troubles me that gay marriage is an issue with the state politicians. Why does the state say that marriage is only between a man and a woman? Seems like more of an issue of the church.
Shouldn't the politicians of our fine state be focusing their time on issues that aren't related to religious beliefs? Our educational institutions are flawed, big businesses are contaminating our environment, and our economy's future is unpredictable. Aren't these issues that we can all agree need to be addressed.
Face it folks. For US gasoline is like crack to an addict. Whateve the dope man says we pay , we pay. We can only steal so much from the Middle East before the rest of the world gets mad and takes it back. Another bleak thing to consider is that with the quake in Japan, and the resulting nuclear fallout, we are going to be looking at Japan dumping much of their nuclear program, if not all, and thus competing for more oil on the world market.
