Mr. Nutt, I am so sorry to hear of all your recent loss. Life is a beautiful gift and it is devastating to lose that precious treasure under any circumstances, especially the lives of those so young and innocent. I pity those like Mr. Lopez who have no respect for that gift because they also lack the comfort of knowing that life continues on beyond our understanding and that those innocents have been welcomed into the loving arms of our creator. I pray for comfort and peace for you and your family...and that Mr. Lopez someday sees the truth as well. God Bless!
To his credit, he had a vision for an improved downtown. And he made strides in the effort to get a federal historic designation for that area.
He also seemed to keep the city's finances under control.
A half million to try to shore up a decrepit building & a 3 million dollar sports park!??! What is out of control spending like???
QUOTE "But the Democrat from Chicago called out opponents he would not name but are clearly members of the National Rifle Association." --- As am I, and like the story said so are 5 MILLION other people...the real question is why aren't there more in the fight for their rights...
--- As for Sen. Kwame Raoul calling someone else a "extremist" or alleged accusations that others are using “intimidation”...that's the pot calling the kettle black!
--- They are trying to pass a STATE bill, and all the while trying to exclude Chicago & Crook County.
Does that sound 'reasonable' to anyone?
I am sure you can see I have contempt for your, in my opinion bigoted, baseless and unscientific opinion of human life. Just as you have contempt for human life. I can, and confident it will, pray your lineage will stop with you.
Just this after noon, while talking to my daughter, I learned my grand son ran across a parking lot chasing his base ball. She scolded him and grounded him from his first base ball practice. I thank God she had the opportunity to scold him instead of any injury. Also, just this evening, I learned that a dear friend of mine lost their child to S.I.D.S. at the ripe old age of a few months old. I don’t think I can recall a time in my life that I have wept so much, in just a weeks time, as I and so many family and friends have.
Have you ever experienced the pain of loosing a son after birth as has my niece? Just last week, as you and I were debating the right to life, my niece lost her daughter at the ripe old age of five years old. She had Down Syndrome. If you know your “scientific fact”, you will know it is detected at conception! She of all people had every reason to abort the pregnancy. She and the, extended family, chose to put our life’s aside to help this child to continue to develop.
I can only speculate that you are an unmarried man that has never experienced the joys and heart aches of creating a human life and parent hood. Have you ever experienced the heart ache of never being able to conceive, as has my sister? Have you ever experienced the joy when you learn that you and your wife have conceived a child but weeks later she has started to hemorrhage, as my wife and I have? Have you ever experienced having a child unable to keep food down due to stomach problems, worrying about malnutrition like my grand daughter had?
Mr. Lopez. I have more than twice refuted every opinion that you have made, to the fetus stage, being other than human life. You claim to be a man of science, but have yet to produce a single scientific fact to support your, “The world is flat fairy tale“, opinion. If you wish, I will repost the findings of all the studies I have read. I invite you to post, but, one to support your opinion.
Chicago Aldermen Request Police Complaint List --- Mayor Richard M. Daley, who opposes releasing the information --- The city has taken steps to make sure that the list and other information related to possible police misconduct remain confidential. --- Experts and politicians said that a vast majority of the force was honorable, but that the unpunished wrongdoings of a small percentage of officers had created incalculable harm. ---
Last week, Sterling Alderwoman Amy Viering attended her last meeting as a city official. She gave the usual praise one hears at such departures. But one compliment stuck out. At the end of her speech, she turned to City Administrator Scott Shumard and said, "You're awesome."
Sen. Tim Bivins, R-Dixon, joined with many of his fellow Senate Republicans this week to reject a pension bill sponsored by Democratic Senate President John Cullerton of Chicago. The measure passed 40-16. Bivins had a different reason for his no vote.
