DRB, it might just be the medium. I don't really frequent patch anymore because the website isRead Moreabsol utely terrible these days. I see so little Herndon specific information, and more random cr*p patch site editors post to generate page views and eyes on lame ads. This site is a complete waste of time.

I agree in general. Liberals do hang out here and is fun to tweak them and engage the brave oneRead Morethat shows their face now and then.

I too was thinking the same thing. My family and I were at the park when we heard about the littleRead Moreg irl missing. We sat in the far back and could barely even hear them give the small description of her. It has been bothering me ever since we've left the park that day, that's how I stumbled across your post. In order for me to be at ease, I need to know if they've located that poor baby!!! I hated how they seemed to brush it off like, "Oh it's just a child I'm sure she will pop up eventully". I hope they do better next year if something like this were to happen again. I need answers 😩😢

The challenge remains. I do not need to argue my position. I only need to quote the constitution.
Pamela Findley July 13, 2014 at 08:42 AM
What are your credentials that make you the authority on the Constitution? I realize that I am noRead Moree xpert. I am not a Constitutional scholar nor a lawyer. I do consider myself, as do my most of my peers, to be an educated and well-read individual. However, I challenge you to state why I or anyone else should accept your word over others known to have studied the law and that are viewed by their peers as respected authorities in the matter, i.e., the Supreme Court of the United States. If, as you have stated, the Constitution is a static document, why do we need the SCOTUS at all, other than that the Constitution provides for it?

I am sure you read "a challenge to our Liberal friends" found atRead Morehttp://herndon.patch.com/ groups/opinion/p/a-challenge-to-our-liberal-friends I know that Liberals want to make things about personalities instead of actually addressing the subject at hand. What if I was your doctor that helped you with your infection or the mechanic that fixed your car? What if I was the lawyer that defended you in court or the plumber that fixed you dishwasher? You say you and your peers are educated and well read. Are you able to think for yourself? Do you ask yourself, do I want to be treated the way I want the government to treat others? Or, do I want to give so much power to people that I don't know and don't care about me at all? What is to stop them from imposing more power over my life than I think they should or want? I do not say the Constitution is static. There are ways to change it as has been done numerous times already. SCOTUS is needed because there is some things that are not black and white. If you read http://herndon.patch.com/groups/opinion/p/a-challenge-to-our-liberal-friends you will see, with a little thought, some elbow room for disagreement on some of the powers and authority given to Congress. Look forward to your thoughtful discussion on that site.

While neither of the candidates are really any different Beyer seems to be tone deaf campaigning on Read MoreObama Care. Right when the election will be held untold tens of millions across the nation will be seeing the pain of the latest part of Obama Care that will kicking in. The high rate increases for those that will keep the insurance they have and the very very many right here in Norther Virginia that will lose their insurance plans. Beyer is not to inspiring if he can't get this right.

On a final note, mentioning Gosnell is like bringing up Godwin's Law and mentioning Hitler in anRead Morearg ument. I don't think anyone wasn't horrified how that happened to slip through the cracks for so long. There's a balance that is demanded, even from Pro-choice advocates.

Thank you for the view of pro choice and against quality medical care for women. Gosnell is theRead Morenorm al out come of pro choice.

I wonder how many dialysis clinics would be left open in the state of Virginia if they had toRead Morecomply with the same stringent standards as clinics that also provide abortion. There was no landscaping outside two of the clinics I used. Maybe they should be shut down because a clinic with substandard landscaping isn't providing quality medical care.

Well said! This new left is taking us down a path we should not be on. We can thank the mindlessRead Moreu ninformed voters for that. This group just listens to the news and picks who ever they are told to pick by a newscaster.
