Re: “Letters to the Editor

In response to Rick Burns:

Women should absolutely be celebrated. Today. Every day. And whether you are male, female, white, black, gay, straight, Republican, Democrat, you should applaud this and embrace it.

Celebrating someone, women in this case, can only be a positive thing. It does not affect you in any negative way whatsoever. Not even the slightest. When someone else accomplishes something, we should celebrate their accomplishment(s) along with them. When we react in a negative way, it usually means that we are insecure about our own selves,

Misogyny is not limited to any one political mindset. It still exists across the board. And though it probably wasnt your intention, your letter is a perfect illustration of why its so important to feature and celebrate women as The Source did. Please listen to the new CD by India Arie, Worthy. And celebrate a woman, any woman, today, and every day.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

The Trump Administration's complete and udder failure to "protect and defend", as is stated in the oath that every single person who serves us swears too, must leave every Patriot in complete disgust! Why? Our neighbors throughout the world have finally had it! The trust and support we have enjoyed since the end of the last World War have been discarded to the ashcan of history. Ditto Pence stood in front of our European friends and failed significantly to address the continued threat that the Russian government has escalated in recent years. God knows, I'm the last person to ever want a war and that is why I must speak out. Some of my friends think that demanding fiscal responsibility from the members of NATO is reason enough to blindly support Trump in his assault on the Organization. There is no question that they do need to step up to the fiscal plate! But that is only one consideration! The Russians now are using the Internet as a weapon to spread discontent in Europe and at home. Divide and conquer, the oldest trick in the playbook of disaster to humankind. Trump stands next to Putin and sides with him over our own intelligence system. That alone tells me he has broken the solemn oath that Patriots swear to uphold.
Added to all of this is Trump's declaration of tariff wars with other countries. The "greatest genius" of all things is leading us into economic disruption. History has shown that tariff wars never have succeeded. I served the agriculture community several years. I can tell you from professional experience that if you destroy markets, it cost you years to reestablish them. Food has always served not only as an economic force, but also as a cornerstone of our international relations.
In summation, this Administration is not protecting America! America has been great since its inception because we are a democratic republic; there is no "again". I am not willing to set on the sidelines for two more years. We simply cant afford it in more ways than I can imagine! I submit that for these issues alone, we need to Take America Back Again! Are you willing to take personal responsibility to do the same?

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Fear and Prejudice? How about human safety? This large cat--double the weight of the cat reportedly that was suffocated/strangled by an adult male in Colorado--was living under decks, hot tubs and frequented the river trail.
It is rare where and when a cat can be tranquilized and moved--typically can be injured or killed in the fall out of large pines, 50'-60' feet up. And, once moved, become troubled cats again. Where would ODFW take this cat? IF moved, it will confront another cat and possibly displace it, or be injured and killed in the teritorial fight--there just aren't easy answers when ALL of us are to blame for living where their meals live in the winter.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Nichole, George was weighing in on what should be an issue of science and data for our tax funded agencies at all levels.

In Alaska, tiny tourist dogs are snack-sized for local Bald Eagles but law enforcement don't call in the exterminators.

Emotional law enforcement officers making decisions based on fear and prejudice are not good for anyone, no matter how many legs they have.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

In regards to the idea that humanity is causing climate change.

It has been well documented through leaked emails of Climategate 1 and 2, that the IPCC altered and falsified the historical climate data for political purposes. Lots of articles about the fakery with a simple google search.

You need to understand what a Solar Minimum is. You need to understand what the Maunder Minimum was.

Go read and watch what Dr. Valentina Zahrkosa has to say about it as she has the most advanced sunspot modeling software on the planet.

And go read these:

Re: “Letters to the Editor

I note two letters attacking opposition to the claim that we have a climate problem. Can either of these writers cite actual evidence that man's CO2 is causing serious global warming?

Please note that:
--Evidence of warming IS NOT evidence that man's CO2 is the cause.
--Unusual weather occurrences are not evidence of its cause
--Correlation is not causation
--An experts assertion is not evidence.
--Majority belief is not evidence
--Government assertions are not evidence.
--What else could it be is not evidence
--Polls are not evidence
--Climate models are not evidence

Re: “Letters to the Editor

I work out of town so I was unaware of the fake utility the city made up. I found out when the city sent a sheriff to my house to serve me with a judgement against my property. I've been contacted by the city police after discussing the fairytale charges on a utility. If anyone ran a business the way the city of Bend operates they would be shut down , fined and do hard time for strong-arm robbery.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Eddie Kinnamon:

It works like this - the City of Bend charges you money for simply living in the city. Think of it like a "privilege tax". The city will take your money and use it to provide services for new development. Later, when it's time to actually provide similar services to your neighborhood, they'll come back and assess you further charges. Just look to the recent sewer connection issue in SE Bend for an example of how that works.

And don't forget in some people's mind you're a freeloader and a lowlife if you object to all these connection charges and fees for phantom services.
But ain't life in Nuevo Bend just grand?...

Re: “Don't Trust The Sky

That exact description happened yesterday in Central Oregon skies

Tight even rows criss crossed all over a clear blue morning sky. By the afternoon thick man made clouds littered the skies. I actually had a really bad headache I attribute to the stuff in the air...

What is it? How can it be legal?

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Thank you for your well-written, thorough endorsement of Jamie McLeod-Skinner to represent CD2. Your reasons are solid, and I couldn't agree with them more. It's time to change who's representing our interests in Washington. Jamie is the real deal. She listens, and she cares. Let's send her to Congress and watch her truly represent us!

James MacAfee -

Thanks for chiming in with the condescending Fudd perspective. It definitely confirms that we do indeed need to be concerned about our Second Amendment rights with McLeod-Skinner having the backing of supporters such as yourself.

Maybe KarenLynn Robinson should listen to her own advice and stop being a "hater" of a "hater" and be nice herself. The first and last sentence says it all "To the ignoramus in the genitalia-compensating truck........." , "DO you even live here??? "

Since the source is simply a pass through for msnbc's world view, I think Lewis was kinder to your journalistic credentials than you deserve.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Good ole' Nik just made the ghoulish and rarely spoken of link between the radical environmentalist movement and the abortion industry, which is based upon the sanctimonious notion that, because he managed to escape the foreceps and vaccuum, he is entitled exclusively to the natural resources that exist. It's absolutely sick.

Re: “Letters to the Editor

Tracy, you identified the source of the problem yourself: "Young couples walk the streets with newborns in carriages, and perhaps another child or two alongside them."

Increasing population growth, the demand for resources, energy, housing, environmental degradation and waste streams all have one thing in common - it all starts with more babies. Voting won't fix it.

To be effective a plastic bag ban would have to apply to all plastic bags given away by retailers, not just those under 4mm. In some cities with a ban the retailers simply switched to giving out thicker plastic bags.

The Bend Hum: If it is the railroad, you might as well not even bother complaining. The railroads operate as if they are a sovereign nation that exists within our borders. They wont care.
