Re: “An Architectural Landmark in Church Hill, Now 50 Years Old, Is Fortunate to Have ChildSavers to Call the Place Home

The usual screeching conservative cynicism from the Unrealist.

Re: “Video: Sacha Baron Cohen Gets Virginia Citizens Defense League President To Teach Toddlers How To Shoot "Bad Men"

He got what was actually in Van Cleave's mind to come out. If it wasn't there, would Van Cleave have done this regardless of how smooth his interviewer was? I've debated the man myself in the comment section of the RTD. He is an intellectual lightweight. Effective for now, with a huge assist from gerrymandering, but a distinct lightweight.

Re: “How to Make Schools Safer?

We'll still have more counselors, more social workers, and hopefully fewer guns. All those will make parents who care more effective.

And the parents who don't? They were around in the early 90s too.

Re: “Dear Richmond

Sandy -- I have also seen how hard-working the immigrants I've seen are, whether they are Hispanics who work as employers and employees in the city or Asians who own businesses and provide services in places like the neighborhoods off Horespen Road and near Tuckernuck Square.

One quibble -- almost no one outside of Congress gets free housing and medical care. Some get some help with the expenses.

And as you allude to, because medical care costs twice as much in the US as anywhere else in the world, and housing costs have more than doubled since the turn of the century, paying for these things is hard even for people who work hard.

Stew -- I find that people who want fewer immigrants also don't want anti-poverty programs. Is this an accurate representation of your position? If not, what would your platform be for giving people born in the US a hand up?

Re: “Commentary: What if public housing was gradually spread across the city with the help of private developers?

The ratio of likes to dislikes to Truth Hurts statement appears to reveal an aversion to serious discussion and problem solving among a significant portion of the conservative rank and file.

Truth, we're all willing to talk when you're through dismissing the rest of us.

Re: “A Movement Grows

Poppy -- the problem is pretty simple. Crazy people like you are living among us. You are crazy because you only want to solve one problem at a time, rather than trying to solve them all and take advantage of the synergies thereby. We have to solve mental health, community supports....and guns.

Sorry for the hard hit, but Breitbart tactics such as calling things PC with nothing to back it won't fly here.

Reality Check, my message for you is the same. And I'll give you a reality check. You are right that gun regulations by themselves won't solve all school shootings. We won't ever stop them all. But perhaps we can get to less than one per week. And solve the black-on-black gun problem. And solve the impulsive gun suicide problem.

If you are not willing to compromise, your party will cease to exist in November. I assume you're a Republican, correct me if you must. There were more people at a demonstration in Richmond than any in living memory. Almost all the signs I saw at a 3000-5000 person demonstration were handmade, indicating a deep commitment to the issue. This is being repeated in 800 other places today around the country.

You and the NRA need to present a realistic compromise. The NRA will cease to exist if they don't.

Re: “A Movement Grows

That argues for abortion restrictions, not against regulating guns.

I look forward to the day when the pushback against Breitbart tactics on comment pages is so bothersome that people won't use the Breitbart tactics.
