Why should some license dogs in Sch’dy if others don’t? Re Feb. 27 Gazette editorial:“Does Sch’dy want to solve its dog problem, or not?”: Obviously not. The City Council members admit that they don’t want any city personnel going door-to-door to do a dog census because it’s “too dangerous.” All the more reason to do one! Why is it that a certain element gets away with thwarting the laws, yet the rest of us have ...

Art Henningson:
I'm pro second amendment, but it is people like you, that are making the rest of us look like a bunch of morons.
Stop it, please, just stop it.
You are NOT helping.

Sure Fritdawg. You're as much pro second amendment as Joe Liden.

How many drive by knife, axe, cleaver and box cutter incidents have you heard of? Also difficult to kill a number of people from 20 or 30 feet with a knife, axe, cleaver or box cutter. You can’t shoot somebody if you don’t have a gun.

I don't see Jim Whitings point, that term limits usurp voters' rights. People still would have to be elected to hold office; they just wouldn't be able to amass sufficient power to criminalize their position, like Joe Bruno and Sheldon Silver.
It appears Jim is really saying he wants everyone to join the Independence Party, in lieu of all others. That contradicts his position that there shouldn't be any parties. Personally, I believe voters have the responsibility to choose the candidate whom they feel will be best for the job - it is a secret ballot, so no one has to know who anybody votes for. That would eliminate the party powers. People just have to be convinced to do it.

Term Limits and Jim Whiting's opinion - I have never since I registered to vote in 1966 been enrolled in a political party. So as a true Independent, it's hard for me to understand exactly what is the point of his letter? His statement about term limits: "They’ll totally usurp the American public’s rights and responsibilities for sure, and all they will do, for sure again, is force the parties to change their tactics slightly." Huh?
To me, term limits would require some people who do not vote with their brain, but with some robotic method, to actually consider the issues for which they vote. Because they would actually have to decide on who to vote for next. Term limits might counteract the gerrymandering of voting districts. Term limits could prevent the "purchase" of a politician. If you cannot serve more than a certain number of years, you cannot be "bought" by special interest groups. Maybe that's what Jim was trying to say?

Worshiped president! Are you for real Mr. Henningson. I need my guns to feed my family with non-chemical induced venion, bear or turkey. I need my knives to gut and cut the meat for consumption. The weak and the meek will not inherit this country. The strong and the armed shall survive! I think it best that you stay in the city where you belong sir.
