Guardian editorial: The real Mirkarimi question - Page 2

Do you believe Eliana, or not?


If the commissioners and the supervisors agree with us — and we found Lopez the most believable witness to come forward in the entire affair — then there's only one way to vote. And that's to dismiss the official misconduct charge and restore Ross Mirkarimi to office.


the measure required handgun owners to turn in their guns to the nearest SFPD office and did not apply to law enforcement personnel - of which Ross was (at that time) not one.

You know, I don't think you've ever once been right here yet you just banging on and on and on. Poor dear - give it a rest sometime.

he does not need and has not used in years.

I were to meet him, I'd be sure to tell him that.

In fact, I think most people could stand to hear it.

The law did not take into account for that.

it was to have taken effect -- as was expected by most analysts, by the way.

When asked about the proposition, which was placed on the ballot before he was supervisor, Ross was on record calling it "symbolic."

"Toadie" eh? I suppose to you that means anyone not using lies to suck up to the Brown political machine.

seeing that they prolly understood it was "symbolic" because it was eventually going to be struck down anyway.

Lilli's grotesquely breezy explanation of the repeal of constitutionally-guaranteed rights is just that - grotesque. Using that logic I can support anything under the vague explanation that I thought it was all "symbolic" anyway. "I voted for the Briggs Amendment because I knew it'd be struck down anyway - it was all symbolic you see."

One thing this creature doesn't seem to understand is that a higher standard is supposed to apply to politicians because they are the trustees of rights and freedoms. Even "symbolically" joking about taking away rights is wrong.

There was plenty of space pre-Heller to say that the second amendment should provide for firearms in the context of a well regulated militia and that it is probably a good idea to try to control access to handguns in cities.

but -- correct me if I'm wrong -- Prop H got invalidated solely within California courts because it contravened state law.

Just for the record, I voted against it and have always been ambivalent about most gun control measures.

Posted by lillipublicans on Aug. 06, 2012 @ 11:09 am

I am not a gun nut and am not familiar with whether Prop H was disposed of via state or federal law. But I voted against it on general principles although I can see honest and good motives behind those who supported it.

are simply grasping at whatever this straw you think you can put to work bolstering this bogus and wholly political assassination of the sheriff.

If you aren't feebly trying to highlight supposed inconsistencies with regard the sheriff's gun ownership, you'll be harping on how Lopez is either telling the truth -- or lying! -- depending on what suits your aim.

Why not just simplify it for everybody? You are *against* Mirkarimi and you are *for* Willie Brown Cheney-like dominion over SF Politics. You are *for* big box stores and you are *for* privatization of the waterfront and government services.

If a right-wing pol beat and abused his wife, you'd demand his resignation.

Hopelessly transparent bias.

noticed: its some Troll #II. Scrape it off on a curb and a brisk walk through the grass ought to take care of it.

One of Lilli's classics.

An economically right wing pol boned his underling's wife who was his also an underling, broke up their family and skated to a promotion.

It's all about power. Rightists want it to be focused in fewer hands. They may approach that goal in a variety of ways, but the goal remains the same.

Posted by lillipublicans on Aug. 06, 2012 @ 11:01 am

and no "abuse"..Just an arm grab for which they have both paid an horrific price. enough already.

Posted by Guest on Aug. 12, 2012 @ 6:34 am

A small bruise under arm is not a DV. some people get bruises for no apperent reason. I am one of them.
If some one wants to attack, doing it to the face or other part of body.
not going under arm and pinch it.
This case is politicly motivated.and absolutly has nothing to do with DV. ,donot kid yourself.
Spending all these money and time to destroy a family.
is any one thinking about his boy and his future.
Is no other crime( kiling, robery and ext...... ) in the city to be taken care of

Shame on all of you who hanging to BS for your own personal gain.
Shame on The people who are so closed minded, not be able to distinguish between facts from fiction.
