Re: “Embarrassment: Indiana Republicans can’t get enough

The general public is not the same as the voting public. We have the lowest voter turnout in the country. If you want to know why our statehouse is full of bigots and racists - republicans - it's because good people stay home. They can't be bothered with voting because __________ [fill in the excuse du jour].

Voter apathy will allow our inferiors to lead. ~ Plato

Re: “Sen. Jim Tomes: The Statehouse in a nutshell

the problem with his transgender bathroom thing is it is totally unenforceable, unless we will be forced o walk around ans show our birth certificates to the bathroom security person. Also who is paying for the added security?

Re: “Sen. Jim Tomes: The Statehouse in a nutshell

Is he going to patrol the restrooms so he can look up skirts and down pants and verify true gender? That is the only way the perv could probably know the difference.

Re: “One percent for the arts still too much for Indy

This is a perfect example of why people in more enlightened cities think we are all a bunch of hicks who live in a bubble.

Re: “What I wish Obama said

I think this is the speech the President has been itching to give on Islam and hasn't had a chance, similar to his speech on race that he gave in early 2008, after the Jeremiah Wright controversy finally gave him an opportunity. Unfortunately, under the circumstances, I think his message was diffused and it was less powerful both on gun violence AND on rejecting anti-Muslim bigotry, than either one to two separate speeches could have been.

I share many of your observations, David. The problem with Indy's corporate fixation is that it sentences the area to a future indistinguishable from most suburbs everywhere. Kudos for recognizing what we have lost in our attempt to gain approval from the Coastals...something, ironically, that was never really worth pursuing to begin with...

Re: “What’s wrong with Indiana’s surplus?

If Indiana were a corporation, having such a large surplus and reserve would be outstanding. But Indiana isn't a corporation. It's a state, a public entity, that has ongoing needs that will never be resolved unless we invest actual time, energy, and money into finding solutions. I'm fine with paying taxes, as long as that money is being used to create a stronger, safer, healthier place for me (and my loved ones) to live. I spend hundreds of dollars a year on school fundraisers and charitable donations, PLUS pay taxes that should be supporting those entities? Sorry, but there's something clearly wrong here, and that something is our government's priorities. Gold star to you, Gov. Pence, for your gigantic surplus, but maybe you should stop playing Scruge McDuck with taxpayer money and actually use it for something constructive. Like actual construction on our roads? Or adult education programs? More quality police officers? Substance abuse treatment clinics? Any of this sounding like a good idea? I mean, really.

Re: “Factories ain’t farms: HEC takes on CAFOs

Ordinary farming doesn't produce the problems referenced in this article. CAFOs are perverse. Pigs are more intelligent than dogs; would we allow dogs to be treated this way? You think we're unconcerned about feeding people?

Well, the Washington Post apparently ignores the saves by people with concealed carry permits already this month.

Re: “Papa Roux’s concealed carry discount

Good Lord. I went to Papa Roux for the first time three weeks ago and loved it and planned to go back often. But as the following article from the Washington Post points out, a "good guy with a gun" who wasn't an off-duty cop or retired military has only intervened in a shooting twice in the past 20 years. Inviting in vigilante wannabees may or may not hurt their business, but it's quintupling the likelihood that their customers will be gunned down by idiots.

Re: “Factories ain’t farms: HEC takes on CAFOs

Same ol' anti-farming talking points spewed by another NIMBY land owner, who is more concerned about his property values than he is about feeding people. I love these folks who talk about "country living" and then -- GASP! -- are stunned (stunned, I say!) that people actually FARM in the country!
Remember in the 1980s when we were hosting Farm AID concerts to bail out dying family farms? The farmers did EXACTLY what they needed to ... they figured out how to become profitable again (because, hey, they'd love the PRIVILEGE of no vacations, long hours, hard work, etc. just to feed people who disrespect them, i.e. this clod). Then, when they do figure it out, we condemn them as "factories" ?!?!
Large farms -- yes, even them -- ARE family farms. If you don't consider them farms, what are they ... nacho huts? chiropractor offices? convention centers?
Siiiiiigh. NIMBY NIMBY NIMBY nonsense.

Would this fall under the category of "gun's don't kill people, people kill people"?
