“Once again, a police dog’s name will be added to the capitol K9 honor memorial, killed by the incompetence and neglect of his policeman partner.”

“Tom Patterson’s article in the EVTribune 9/9/12 edition talks about transfer payments to our needy citizens, but ignores the enormous government transfer payments to the wealthy — whether individuals or corporations. He is right that we will need moral fiber to change our situation: In a society where a person’s standing is determined by his or her wealth, convincing those who have amassed large amounts of money, assets and power to share the cost of the government which protects them and creates economic opportunity for them will be difficult in the extreme.”

“To the Venter who suggested on Friday, 9/7, that Mitt Romney has a problem connecting with women due to his Mormon faith believing that women are “subservient to men” — you apparently are not familiar with the Mormon faith. One of their most prominent documents ‘The Family: A Proclamation to the World’ states: ‘...fathers and mothers are obligated to help one another as equal partners.’ So try again.”

“The Venter who thinks Mormon women are subservient obviously knows very little about Mormon teachings or our history. LDS women have always been considered equal partners with their husbands and our doctrine has always strictly warned husbands against being domineering. Women have always had an equal part in the sustaining votes of church leaders and Utah was the second state to allow women to vote in civic elections.”

“In response to the Venter who claims that if ‘one were familiar with the Mormon faith’ they would know that the women are subservient to the men, I say this: Obviously this one isn’t familiar.”

“Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan claim more unemployed people have just given up on looking for work. The only people who have given up on work are the GOP’s own fact checkers!”

“What has the Republican Party done to help the economy the last four years besides pass voter fraud laws, pass trans vaginal ultrasound laws, try to repeal Obamacare several times and turn the pre-existing dogs loose on children, strengthen the NRA so more innocent people can be slaughtered, weaken labor unions that provide safety, health care and retirement for millions, cut funding for education at all levels, sign a pledge with lobbyists undermining the Constitution, and vote against equal pay for women. It’s like they want to take us back to a time when J.P. Morgan ran this country with a monopoly.”
