All those photo ops of Becker on a bike paid off!Great! Maybe he can take
some of those orange Rocky flags to the meetings, too.And Burbank can go
along and attend amnesty rallies or something.Just how did Salt Lake
become a bastion of liberalism?
Coercive force. Please enjoy our dwindling freedoms.
Yes!Finally we're getting somewhere!
Say No To BOI don't know how it happens with liberals running
conservative cities, but I remember in California a city called Irvine. It was
close to being the most conservative city in all of conservative Orange County.
Yet the Mayor of Irvine was an avowed socialist. And of course I remember
coming up here a few years ago before moving and running into Rocky Anderson.
The stories I heard. Anyway, what probably happens is that the liberal left is
more politically energized than the conservative right is. Too them, politics
is religion. And all it takes is enough energized voters. T-Party energy for
all of you who don't like what they've done in winning Congress. Good
for them. The T-Party example should be a wake up call to us. It can be done.
The liberals will win if the conservatives don't get their vote out too.
Just ask Mitt. He found that out.
Another waste of taxpayer money.
That will help when we have 20 days of choking inversions. The tea party will
deny that they are unhealthy.
Maybe what's happening is that trying to pigeonhole cities or people as
liberal or conservative is not only inaccurate but damaging and divisive. We
should have almost everything in common, rather than see others as sworn mortal
I hope the Mayor is planning on resigning as the Mayor. Its unethical and
immoral and unconstitutional to be employed by the state and federal government
at the same time. It violates federal and state laws for this kind of
arrangement. If the presidnet feels the need to establish another
national weather service to serve him then the mayor is obligated to resign his
position to SLC government. This Mayor is being swooned like a giddy childish
emotions and not using his head. He should be forced to drop this requests as
conflict of interest or resign as mayor.Its immoral and
unconstitutional for the president to put federal services from elected
representatives. This puts the mayor in the pocket of the presidnet serving two
masters. This is way beyond a photo ops, its unethical treason to the state and
city who elected him and the laws he swore and oath to, which is Utah. He has to
make a choice, server Obama government or the people of SLC but not both.The president has a fine organization in the NOAA and the need for
trapping small time city government is a power play to cripple local government.
If you want good advice about the weather, hire scientists, not politicians.
Obama does not want truth, he wants to be surrounded by Yes-men lackeys.
WooHoo for Mayor Becker! He gets to work for the worst president in modern times
on something based in junk science and that has been politicized to boot.
Ralph Becker certainly has more sense than ultra liberal Rocky Anderson. Being
new to the scene I was astonished that in 2008 Salt Lake County voters supported
Obama. So did LA County,Multanomah (Portland Oregon)which are extreme liberal
counties so liberalism has much more than a toe hold in SL county, it has
hardcore partisan advocates.Air quality is a big issue especially with
inversions. It is a huge waste of money but it is going to be spent so we might
as well be represented at the table.
We, like those that lived during the days of Noah, fail to realize that our
culture is the real problem we need to deal with. The earth is going to warm
up, but not because of the climate we somehow believe the government can
control, but rather because of the morals we have cast aside for the perversions
we have embraced. We have been warned by that God, that does not exist to some,
that we will have earthquakes, when the 'earth will reel' as if
drunken, when whole earth will be at war, and "great hail storms will
destroy the crops', or even a snow storm that will kill thousands of
cattle. And at last, it will be destroyed by fire.Noah was mocked for
building his ark, and there will those who will mock the prophecies of God but
it is happening all around us even now and those that put their faith in the
'arm of flesh' will not be prepared for that 'great and dreadful
day".We need to respect the earth, by all means find ways not to
pollute it, but even more so we need to respect its Creator.
