Re: “Feedback 3/7

Actually, anyone understanding the evolution of the Second Amendment and the 18th. Century belief by many (NOT including Gen. Washington by the way) that a militia (as opposed to the dreaded "standing army") was the cornerstone in protecting American liberties can see that the clear language of that amendment applies specifically and solely to the right to keep and bear arms within the context of a citizen militia. Sadly, in 2008 a right wing Supreme Court opted to create a here-to-fore non-existent constitutional right of self-protection so as to retroactively justify the private ownership of 300,000,000 firearms. Thus the sacrifice of tens of thousands of Americans annually to the Gods of Guns continues unabated.

Re: “ROC the Riverway's first public meeting is today

4 to 6 PM. When all but the retired and the unemployed are at work. What a great way to ensure that few show up to ask embarrassing questions. And even then the questions are kept one-on-one so as to avoid legitimate criticisms from being made public. Can you say "SCAM"?

Re: “Can't local Democrats be faithful to their ideals?

Johnny - Given that the Republicans were the more liberal of the two major parties during Douglass' heyday, it's hardly surprising that he joined that party.

It is amusing however to watch today's GOP desperately trying to grab some reflected glory from the accomplishments of the liberals, progressives and moderates who belonged to the party in the past and who wouldn't touch today's Republican Party with the proverbial 10 foot pole.

Re: “Project Censored, 2016-17

David 4 - Sorry you can't differentiate between rants and facts, and that you missed Jim's points about censorship and hypocrisy.

Re: “Dinolfo plans to boost staffing at Child Protective Services

Perhaps Ms. DiNolfo, or better yet her predecessor, Maggie Brooks, can explain why Child Protective Services was allowed to be insufficiently staffed for so long?
It would be interesting and informative to know if the reason was, a) additional staffing requests were never made, or b) staffing requests were made and either denied or only partially approved.

Re: “Feedback 10/11

Dave 1952 - The Modern Era of mass shootings in the US began on December 30, 1974 when 17-year-old Anthony F. Barbaro killed 3 people ands injured 11 while sniping from a window in the Olean High School. Similarly, the Modern Era of calls for stricter fiream regulations can be traced back to the assassination of JFK and the subsequent passage of the Gun Control Act of 1968. Since those days, mass shootings, and calls for stricted regulations, have continued on a regular basis. That being the case, can you please explain how once again raising the issue of gun control in the wake of the Las Vegas horror can rationally be called "a knee-jerk reaction to pass something based on emotion"?

Re: “It's Warren's party now

Peter Maurer - Funny thing about our system of jurisprudence. It's the obligation of the accuser to prove in court that someone is guilty of a crime, not the accused's responsibility to prove that they're innocent. That being the case, to use a mayoral debate to accuse someone of being a felon is the moral equivalent of Trump and his followers chanting, "Lock her up" at one of his rallies.
