  • There have been a few exceptions on both the local and state level, but by and large, we live in a traditionally democratic pocket of a traditionally republican state. I'm sure because of our local leanings, that this does us no favors at the state level when republicans sit in control, which is most of the time.

    And yet, conservative Indiana, passed a state-wide smoking ban, which can be viewed as governmental infringment upon citizen's personal rights, which conservatives are supposed to fundamentally oppose.

    And while I personally lean to the left, locally I think it is shameful that our city council is trying to insert themselves into people's homes and private property by threatening to pass mandatory yearly fees on dogs.

    Thanks David for another interesting blog.
