|Dog whistles from the extreme political right breed hate, lack of class and lack of morals
Opinion by Tim Shirer
This past Friday on November 22nd marked one of the saddest days in United States history with the 50thanniversary of President John Kennedy’s assassination.
What struck me greatly while watching all of the programing and reading all of the articles about how people felt after the assassination, they all felt awful and saddened at what had happened that day in Dallas.
Republicans and Democrats mourned the death of Kennedy. It made me realize that back in 1963 people were more caring, had morals and much more class than we have in the society of 2013.
I feel like if the same event unfolded in Dallas or anywhere today, the reaction would not be the same. Especially from people on the right. It’s really pathetic that this thought would even enter my mind. But it has and I’m not the only one who thinks this way. Click here for the whole story
|It's time to bear witness against guns
Opinion by Larry Durstin
In 2005, at the beginning of his second term, George W. Bush signed the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCCA), which gives gun manufacturers, distributors and dealers almost unlimited immunity from civil liability lawsuits. This legislation — passed by a Republican-dominated Congress and backed by the NRA — resulted in the immediate dismissal of several lawsuits against gun manufacturers and distributors that were being litigated at the time and has been the basis for the dismissal of numerous subsequent lawsuits as well.

|When did it become acceptable not to care?
Opinion by Timothy W. Shirer
Most people who know me know that I do not drive. I am a bike rider. I like riding my bike. It rarely holds me back for doing something that a person that drives can do. The one thing I have noticed in the five years since I took to bike riding is that people don't care about others. Of course when I say people don't care, I don't mean to imply that every person on the face of the Earth is uncaring, because that's not true. I wanted to clarify that because some people say that I judge a whole group by what a few people do. Of course I also believe those people who accuse me of that are doing it to avoid the real topic in the conversation, but that's another commentary. Click here for the whole story
