In support of Romanoff

In support of Romanoff

Dear Friends and Neighbors: The other day I was walking door to door for Romanoff when I knocked on the door of a registered voter who told me that she no longer votes. I have always maintained that if one is disgusted by politics one should participate more, not less, since how else will things change. It turned out, however, that the woman was a Jehovah’s Witness, and although I didn’t know it, they don’t vote. Since I have a commitment to democracy and voting, ... Full Story

Karen Stockley’s true water agenda

As some readers might not have been aware of it, Karen Stockley’s (Democratic candidate for House District 49) recent column was a show of far-left environmentalism pretending to be someone credibly qualified to talk about financial feasibility. Restated, she should just be forthright in that she opposes the proposed Northern Integrated Supply Project (NISP) purely on environmental grounds instead of using misleading costs and facts to make her point that the project is a fiscal nightmare to ...

Are We All Ideologues Now?

Are We All Ideologues Now?

Dr. Gillis J. Harp August 04, 2010 New media have shaped our political culture. Some, like talk radio and all-news cable stations, are developments of older, established technologies. Others, like internet blogs, are based on comparatively new technologies. Yet, both venues have provided congenial habitats for that enemy of reasonable, constructive political discourse: the ideologue. What exactly is an "ideologue?" Merriam-Webster defines it as "an often ... Full Story

Can you afford a new car?

Can you afford a new car?

By Jason Alderman When I was growing up, car manufacturers made a big deal each fall about unveiling next year's models, literally shrouding them in secrecy under tarps in print and TV ads until the launch date. Car-crazy dads would then rush down to the dealer for a test drive. New models now roll out year round – and financing methods have gotten more flexible as well. Back then, many people saved for years in order to pay cash for a new car; today, most people I ... Full Story

“When They Dropped the Bomb”

“When They Dropped the Bomb”

"When They Dropped the Bomb," Remembering August 1945 By Dr. Paul Kengor This week marks 65 years since the United States dropped the atomic bomb. On August 6, 1945, President Harry Truman delivered a “rain of ruin” upon Hiroshima, Japan, with Nagasaki hit three days later, killing 100,000 to 200,000. Truman’s objective was to compel surrender from an intransigent enemy that refused to halt its naked aggression. The barbarous mentality of 1940s Japan was beyond ... Full Story

Take Reporting Ethics 101 over again

Take Reporting Ethics 101 over again

Dear Editor, As a newspaper you all should be ashamed of your article on the Sheriff's report. You advertise the opponent's website to ballot issues 60, 61 and 101 and reference to the Post's slanted articles but nothing at ALL for the proponents. Do you always aim to show only one side of issues? As journalists you should present both sides or find another job as bloggers. Visit www.cotaxreforms.com to see how moderate and modest the three proposals are. Phased in ... Full Story
