I almost teared up after reading this frightfully-accurate condemnation of our present situation in this nation we call home. We ARE in trouble, and its worse for our coming generations. I have never missed voting in an election, yet most people I know (and love) have no interest in politics and THIS is why we are where we are. I feel as though were screwed.

Hello, I am Ledan Mini After being in relationship with Anderson for years, he broke up with me, I did everything possible to bring him back but all was in vain, I wanted him back so much because of the love I have for him, I begged him with everything, I made promises but he refused. I explained my problem to my friend and she suggested that I should rather contact a spell caster that could help me cast a spell to bring him back but I am the type that never believed in spell, I had no choice than to try it, I mailed the spell caster, and he told me there was no problem that everything will be okay before three days, that my ex will return to me before three days, he cast the spell and surprisingly in the second day, it was around 4 pm. My ex called me, I was so surprised, I answered the call and all he said was that he was so sorry for everything that happened that he wanted me to return to him, that he loves me so much. I was so happy and went to him that was how we started living together happily again.

Re: “On Religious Discrimination

BJ continues with the dogmatic assertions: "The DABC has absolutely no impact on what you call 'responsible drinking,'" and "...prohibition, just like the war on drugs, had no impact on alcohol consumption." If there were any truth to this it would only lead one to think that the taxes remain economically insignificant or that all drinkers are full fledged alcoholics. But what we have seen recently with tobacco taxes is that if you gouge the smokers enough many will turn to vaping. And as for prohibition, a big reason for its repeal was the growing number of methanol deaths. Good numbers were impossible to come by but BJ would have us believe that death by poisoning deterred not a single soul from a little booze.

What Robinson and BJ (assuming they are different individuals) take as a given is that drinking is an entirely innocent activity (Jesus imbibed and so do I), and no one can challenge its innocence with any but religious motivation. They could as easily argue that pot remains illegal in Utah only because of LDS interference. Obviously the church has influence in these matters but this hardly has to do with theological concerns. Rather there is common sociological agreement that society pays a price for alcoholic consumption, which cost arises from the fact that many do not drink responsibly, so the state attempts to reimburse itself for some of that cost. If drinkers wish to cast blame on any they ought to direct the blame toward irresponsible drinkers, not the society or segments of society which must bear the expense of their behavior.

Prohibition says you can't drink legally. DABC says you can but you will pay through the nose. The innocent victim of your DUI may not be a Mormon. --AGF

Re: “On Religious Discrimination

Just remember, the government control of the liquor business does not attempt to curb amounts of liquor being consumed by Utah's residents. Utahns can buy as much liquor as they can afford, get as drunk as they wish, and cause mayhem and deaths just like drinkers can in any other state. The DABC has absolutely no impact on what you call "responsible drinking." It simply gouges Utah drinkers, thereby favoring all those who don't drink. Mormonism may not be the "state religion," but it has virtually the same effect. As to the influx of non-Mormons, most of them consume alcohol, so the ill-gotten profits of the DABC are likely to dramatically swell in coming years, thereby funneling even more money to the benefit of the LDS population while "taxing" the non-believers.

As for Idaho's state-run lottery, you've used the same rationale, stating that Idaho is in the gambling business because many people can't gamble responsibly. Please note that there are no restrictions on how much a person spends on the Idaho State Lottery. A person with modest means can spend their entire paycheck, leave their children without adequate food or housing, and go entirely broke using the state-run-and-regulated system. In no way, does it create any safety mechanisms to prevent "irresponsible gambling." So, once again the argument misses its mark.

And prohibition, just like the war on drugs, had no impact on alcohol consumption. It merely forced a clandestine "privatization" effort which was highly successful, increasing the power of organized crime, and making some people--including the Kennedys--insanely rich. During Prohibition, those who wanted to drink continued to drink.

And it goes to say that those who choose to use drugs will always be able to find them.

Now tell me about the glories of state run businesses!

Re: “On Religious Discrimination

In his piece, "On Religious Discrimination" (see https://www.cityweekly.net/utah/on-religious-discrimination/Content?oid=9313034 ), Michael S. Robinson Sr makes too many dogmatic assertions to treat in one sitting but we can tackle a few. Let's start with this one:

"Why is our government in the liquor business, when that is something legitimately left to private enterprise?"

Obviously Robinson takes for granted that Prohibition was an illegitimate endeavor, but the fact is, not all drinkers can drink responsibly. It seems Prohibition caused more problems than it solved and Utah's approach offered a compromise: state controlled sales of strong liquor. But analogous to Robinson's decree, we might say Idaho has no business running a state lottery; leave gambling to private enterprise as in Nevada. But the fact remains, not all can gamble responsibly. Some would even say a lottery is a tax on statistical incompetence. So half way between outlawed gambling and legal casinos Idaho has a lottery. How is that different from Utah's state liquor stores? Would it constitute a mingling of (an anti-gambling) church and state if Utah were to follow Idaho's example?

Michael Robinson combines the problem of separation of church and state in Utah with the liquor profits of the state monopoly to assert that with the "sin tax" non-Mormons are unfairly subsidizing the Mormon lifestyle-- especially unfairly since non-Mormons suffer the additional burden of paying for the education of large LDS families. Where to begin.

1) One might ask if Prohibition constituted a federal collusion of church and state.

2) One might wish to distinguish between direct ecclesiastical interference (e.g., where a church official hypothetically threatened an LDS legislator with excommunication), and democratic expression of religious sentiment at the voting booth.

3) One might compare the $100 million figure (which Robinson pulls out of the air) with the cost of police protection dedicated to enforcing DUI laws as well as court and jail expenses diverted to keep the roads safe from drunk drivers. (Not to mention hospital costs of those injured in DUI accidents--who is subsidizing who?)

The argument that even gentile teetotalers subsidize the schooling of large LDS families is an old one, and of course peculiar to Utah, but it has its problems as well:

1) The LDS birth rate is steadily declining, lagging the non-LDS rate by about 20 years, while out of state migration is increasing.

2) Non-LDS citizens constitute a growing fraction of the population. Some segments of this immigrant population have birthrates comparable to the LDS rate.

3) The complaint ignores the philosophy that in reality each citizen pays for his own education after one becomes a contributing tax payer. It supposes that old bachelors should never have to pay into the fund since they have no children to burden the state--his parents are to blame for his schooling expenses.

4) Robinson's penultimate conclusion:

"Its time to go back to the basics: 1) End the DABCs abuse of private enterprise and allow competition. 2) Allow Utahs non-Mormons to get what they want at non-discriminatory prices. 3) End the practice of forcing non-Mormons to pick up the tab for the state religion."

The "war on drugs" is certainly an attack on capitalism, but it harly constitutes federal collusion of church and state. --AGF

Re: “Mormons and Pot

To nit pick his use of quotation marks as a way as to not respond to his overall point is kind of silly and closed minded. Don't you think?

Fact of the matter is, he is right. There is no reason for Medical Marijuana to not already be legal given all the good it can do in ending suffering.

And let me take this one step further. In a state where smoking cigarettes and partaking of alcohol is legal, what is the hang up with recreational use of Marijuana? Why is this the rallying cry of those opposed to legalizing medical use? It strikes me as a very ignorant and uninformed stance to take.

Re: “Mormons and Pot

When you use quotation marks, most readers assume that you are quoting something verbatim. And yet President Hinckley never called the Iraq War a "just war". He said some wars are justified, but all are horrific. When you can't get even the most basic facts right, it destroys your credibility for everything else you have to say.

Re: “You Down With NPV?

Being a constitutional republic does not mean we should not and cannot guarantee the election of the presidential candidate with the most popular votes. The candidate with the most votes wins in every other election in the country.

Guaranteeing the election of the presidential candidate with the most popular votes and the majority of Electoral College votes (as the National Popular Vote bill would) would not make us a pure democracy.

Pure democracy is a form of government in which people vote on all policy initiatives directly.

Popular election of the chief executive does not determine whether a government is a republic or democracy.

The presidential election system, using the 48 state winner-take-all method or district winner method of awarding electoral votes used by 2 states, that we have today was not designed, anticipated, or favored by the Founding Fathers. It is the product of decades of change precipitated by the emergence of political parties and enactment by states of winner-take-all or district winner laws, not mentioned, much less endorsed, in the Constitution.

The Constitution does not encourage, discourage, require, or prohibit the use of any particular method for how to award a state's electoral votes
