The city we knew and enjoyed is going away...in so many ways it's a shame.

Excellent point Dubfun. Until the extremeists in both parties wake up and cooperate, there will be nothing but gridlock in Washington. Compromise is not a dirty word unlike what some on here believe.

"GOP must stick to it's principles." Are these the same principles that exclude the forty-seven percent? We learned a difficult lesson during the last election; what some people espouse in public completely contradicts what they say behind closed doors. Make sure you know everything about your heroes(like Ms. Malkin) before you put them on a pedestal. Blind devotion to our leaders just because they have a conservative or liberal label has been proven historically to be a tragic mistake.

My goodness, seems I struck a nerve. So many rambling, incoherent posts. I find it interesting that you think you know so much about me and my beliefs.

In answering the post saying I lied. My first post for this article asked if you were too afraid to go anywhere in Salem without your gun. Ended it with a question mark so I guess it's a question. Sorry...didn't lie but in your anger you are once again throwing out blind accusations.

Secondly. I voted for Obama vs. McCain. I could have voted for McCain but that ended when he selected that airhead to be his running mate and with a man of that age there was no way that I wanted her anywhere near the Oval Office.

Since you know me so well then you already know that I voted for Romney in this past election.

So where do I pick up my dollar or doughnut?

I wonder if the folks carrying illegally read these signs? Will preventing legal guns stop a crime in these stores?

"When they say No Guns it no guns that is the law."

Did anyone say differently? Did I?

What's your point?

As I have read most of you posts sometime you sound like you are above the law

As I read sounds like your hide is wearing thin.

As for the GOP after the 46 cowards voted against background checks. Those 46 have no principals, only the love of licking the boots of the NRA. Have fun today!

"OSU600 that remark was uncalled for."

Thank you, WatchDog. He didn't even get past the calluses.

He is using Saul Alinski tactics: Negate the person by smears and lies, then the opinions become irrelevant. You'll notice he did not address one fact that was posted.

I have noticed that in one way, this place is just like DC:

The Left circles the wagons, the Right leaves their people hang out to dry.

""why in the*****did Ogden ever develop a webpage with a comment feature?" "

I'm sure they are happy. They wanted to promote discussion. I think they were successful.

This is a public forum with kids able to access. Please refrain from swearing, the silly censor algorithms don't catch them all.

"GOP must stick to its principles"

My whole point. This is what I do, and why I don't patronize the fore-mentioned businesses.

Didn't go to the unemployment or food stamp office with my hand out after being laid off this winter.

"GOP must stick to its principles"

If only Boner and crew felt the same. There are a couple good ones, the fresh faces. If they can only survive.

Please list the conservative values you cherish as a 'middle' person.

Let's address your points, OSU.

One: You're not 'relatively' new. I do not believe you 'in the middle'. If so, please list and explain the convervative values you cherish.

Two: You buy home insurance in case of disaster to your house. You carry a handgun in case of disaster toward your life, or others. How is that apples and oranges?

Three: I'm sure most business owners displaying the target-rich environment sticker could care less about restricting my ability to defend myself. They don't know I'm not going in, but if enough people 'don't go in', they might get the message.

"4. If you think I'm "smearing" someone because I asked a simple question then you are WAY to sensitive. "

Not quite accurate:

"My point is that if you feel the need to carry a gun then you are living in fear."

"You are too afraid to go anywhere in Salem without your gun? I feel sorry for you. "

OU600 good post, as you see some are very thin skinned. I was in Salem today an I carried but when they say No Guns it no guns that is the law. Joe they were cleaning the old sears lot as I passed.

Haha. Where to begin... 1. Not a leftist nor a righty. I'm like a majority of America...in the middle. I'm relatively new to the comment board and usually just laugh at some of the posts, but you guys have gone unchallenged for too long. I'll be around to make sure you don't think too highly of yourselves. 2. You really want to compare home insurance to CCW? Another ridiculous post that is comparing apples to oranges. 3. To Not socialist: I'm sure those businesses that won't let you carry really are shaking in their boots that you don't patronize their stores. Hospitals,schools and the Community Center are likewise relieved that they won't have to deal with your presence 4. If you think I'm "smearing" someone because I asked a simple question then you are WAY to sensitive. Perhaps too sensitive to be carrying.

I'm sure I'll get witty and enlightened commentary...fresh from the talking points of Fox News. BTW, I don't exclusively watch MSNBC either.

Nothing like a good conservative woman to bring out the viciousness of the Left... too bad she's not black, then there would REALLY be some nasty comments.

" I'll return with an event that happened on this date in 1999. Columbine had an armed guard with a gun...he didn't prevent the massacre. "

No, he didn't. The shooters knew his schedule and waited until he was out of the building.

Might try researching before writing.

I feel sorry for you that you have to try to smear someone you don't agree with. But I've come to expect it.

""no CCW allowed" I see that stopped everyone else from attending. You must be pretty self important. "

Incredibly reasoned comment!

I do not patronize any business that displays a gun-free zone sticker. Unlike the RINOs that call themselves conservatives in DC, I walk the walk.

"What does a CCW have to do with going to such an event ? "

Ask the people in the Cinemark theater in Aurora, CO, a gun-free zone.

Oh, wait, you can't, they're dead.

If you have insurance on your home, you are living in fear. Do you have insurance on your home OSU?

I could care less about what Michele Malkin feels about CCW. My point is that if you feel the need to carry a gun then you are living in fear. If you want to carry, fine he law says you can. You want to point out Newtown, I'll return with an event that happened on this date in 1999. Columbine had an armed guard with a gun...he didn't prevent the massacre.
