Re: “Tom Farrell’s $1 Billion Idea

I'm willing to pay a tax increase for schools. I'm not for a Coliseum.

Re: “Tom Farrell’s $1 Billion Idea

Kitchens: We need to spend money on schools, then infrastructure. That is the only viable economic development plan. If you want to contend that money could be spent more efficiently you certainly have a strong case but that's a separate issue.

The issue with the Coliseum is that sports and special events venues NEVER make money for the municipalities that build them. And the inclusion of the two Dominion towers in the TIFF is a backdoor way to get the city to fund the Coliseum until 2048, taking money away from schools and infrastructure.

So. Schools First.

Re: “Moms Demand Action seeks greater role in gun reform debate

Eddie, I think your thought is linked to this piece of news about scam calls increasing to become nearly half of all calls by next year. So much misinformation is out there. And now th3 scam callers want to lie to us just like the conservatives, Breitbartists, and Daily Caller readers -- This is Fox News in hopes that conservatives will click it http://www.foxnews.com/tech/2018/09/21/nea…

Re: “Moms Demand Action seeks greater role in gun reform debate

Don Key -- your comment is an excellent example of pigeonholing a debate into either regulating guns or having good parenting, and choosing your favored good parenting as the winner.

Of course good parenting is important. If no one raises their kids well then there is chaos.

But even with good parenting, a deficient environment with, say, too many guns will result in suboptimal outcomes e.g. more fear and a higher murder rate than countries that have a handle on the number of guns in the land.

Each falls without the other.

Since my wife will come back soon from throwing out a deadbeat, we'll talk about the Constitution and the NRA's radically incorrect reading of it in other posts.

Re: “Moms Demand Action seeks greater role in gun reform debate

Ajg 45 -- Welcome from Breitbart. This isn't the same place. Have you been to Canada? I have. Perhaps you can elaborate oon your ideas.

I meant to say 90 guns per 100 peoplehttps://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Estimated_number_of_civilian_guns_per_capita_by_country

Canada has about 30 guns per 100 people.
