Thank you nails. Much appreciated.
Madore has lost a lot of voters that put him in office. I admit I am one of them. I thought we needed a person that could get things done. Had I known he would turn in to a tyrant I would not have voted for him and I am sure there are many others that feel the same way. I feel the same way about our mayor Tim. Again I thought that Pollard was going in the wrong direction. Money is what turned mayor Tim. He got sucked in to the money people of Vancouver. I never thought that money could influence so many people here in our little county and city. Boy was I wrong. I agree with jacjak and I will vote for nailingit. Seriously I would like to see someone like Roger or Manthou run for one of these spots.I think they would make this a better place.
Nail like I said I really don’t know what to do about the mental issue and gun ownership. I guess we could tattoo a big M on the forehead. But I don’t think we would be allowed to do that. Being serious it could start with the persons family. These things should be reported and guns removed from the homes or locked up in secure safes. Also if the person is seeing or has seen a doctor about the problem then the doctor should have a responsiblty to report to the proper authority. Not a easy answer to the problem is there.
Nail I am still here. How do I feel about gun control? I have no problem with registration I have done it with all my guns. I have had a concealed permit for years. So I don’t have a problem with back ground checks. I do think it needs to be made easier to gift a long gun or shotgun to my son’s or grandsons. All of them have gone through gun safety class’s. I taught firearm safety for 12 years many years ago. I am a firm believer in safety and the proper handling of firearms. I also see no reason at least for me to own a military style long gun. Shooting is like any other sport or hobby. If it is done safely. I do agree we need to do something about those with mental issues in order to keep all firearms away from them. How I don’t know. Those that are bent on doing harm are going to do it no matter what we do. Laws are not going to keep guns out of the hands of bad guys or gang’s. Just look across the river at Portland this last week.
I do love what I do jacjak. And I have done this for 48 years. I would really miss not coming to work everyday.
Are you supposed to retire in your 60’s? I guess no one ever told me.
Point taken nail. But is it ok to take the rights away from others to make a point? Would it not be better for them if they worked to get things changed through congress? What they have done and are doing is dividing people. And I see not much good coming from that.
I agree with you Hawk. I would just cut the ropes. Protesting is fine as long as it does not disrupt the lives of others. How many people were late or missed work because of this? Drift is right also. We need to come up with a alternative to oil if anything is going to be accomplished. Oil is not only used for fuel. It amazes me how many things we use oil for in our daily lives.
Now Nail don’t start picking on those of us that don’t like spending other peoples money. We are just trying to save you. I guess we are going to be called Ba Da Boom instead of other?
John why put us in other instead of general?
Hey Drift I guess I am # 2
