This is so funny. Hal C is as opinionated as Glenn B. I guess they cancel each other out. It is as disingenuous to think that Hal C has anything to contribute on the left as Glenn B has to contribute on the right. I find it funny, really funny, that an opinion from the left is considered better than an opinion from the the right. To us, the most powerful group of we the people there is, who hold the balance of power in our hands, the "independents" we consider it all BS.
Just wondering Hal, if this happened in the darkness of the night, would it still be a racist incident? Are not we all black at night? Seems to me that when MLK spoke years ago, that many people just ignored his words. Lets get back to the character of a person and get over that people's color is different. It makes me sad that some individuals just can not look at people....well, as just people. I am sure, no make that positive, that black people know they are black. And the same for whites. Shoot, even chinese people know they are chinese, and we don't need to label them chinese-americans if they already know their heritage and were born here. They are Americans, period. People who are not black do not need to tell blacks they are. Gates is not an intellectual if he can only rant about color. Read him and find out what he rants about. I know what color I am, do any of you?
Excuse me if I burst a bubble in this heath care debate. Sure it is fine to make sure everyone in the country is covered by some type of government sponsored health care. Coverage is not the problem. Getting the care when one needs it is the problem. That is the problem in all the places that have some type of government sponsored health care. It is not the coverage, it is the care.
How can one solve the increasing pollution problem when we are eliminating the major route of eliminating pollution? Every time we decide to build a neighborhood we cut down all the trees. It is a well know fat that CO2 is eliminated from the air by trees and other local greenery. So one is in a Catch 22. We want more people to move to the area because that temporarily helps the economy. But one does not want to admit that clearing areas and such to make room for all these new people are destroying the most effective way of eliminating pollution. It is more than just save a tree, it is keep a forrest. If we must have new people and more pollution it is time to build up, not out. That alone will make a lot of things better.
Now I am real confused. I thought the Independent was always in favor of helping 3rd world business. Am I now hearing that the best way of doing business is only with locally produced product? Is it OK to discriminate between some corporations, small independent foreign importers and our very own locally developed economies? Oh, and how do third world producers get their products to our local markets if it is not through some corporation helping them? I can do what you suggest and only buy local. But I wont buy 3rd world items from local enterprises because it was not produced locally. No problem and thanks.
It is important to vote for this ticket. And one vote does count. But to make the voting process better, bring someone who will also vote for this ticket to the polls with you. That makes the effort worth 2 or more votes, right? Get yourself to the voting booth and bring other voters with you. If this is not imprtant to you, just dont vote and lose without trying.
