Tell me, President Waddoups, what planet do you live on? Maybe you can buy tires for your car and clothes for your family, but you have a job! In fact, you have at least two jobs and you get to pocket your housing allowance each session because you can sleep at your house in Taylorsville instead of a hotel. Obviously you have never been unemployed or divorced. Believe it or not, there are people less fortunate than you.

Mike Waddoups. Dear Mikey boy.

Would really like to thank you for making this entire session of the senate about your alcohol crusade, rather than... you know... issues that actually effect Utah families much more than our children SEEING an alcoholic beverage.

Thanks Mike. Can we move on to real solutions now?

Are you serious - you want to add who drinks to a database? http://www.ksl.com/?nid=148&sid=5495995. I can't believe you want to waste money on this. I don't drink for several reasons - but for those who do - let them do it without having to be "counted!"

Sen. Waddoups: Your alcohol policy proposals of late prompted me to write my first comment to a member of the state government. I thought we lived in a state dominated by a party that celebrated individual responsibility and accountability. If so, why do you propose these Orwellian statutes that alienate those of us who enjoy Gods gift of beer and wine? Are you truly a democrat or socialist? Do you feel that government is the sole protector of the children? Do you not trust the parents of the sons and daughters of Utah to raise their children to become responsible adults capable of making their own decisions on whether or not to imbibe? Your senate tenure stinks of big government and big brother so and please stop damaging the image of Utah, its already bad enough.

Separation of church and state? Where else can you go in this great country and find these crazy alcohol laws? Move the wine coolers out of gas stations because they promote underage drinking? Mix drinks behind a barrier so it doesn't encourage underage drinking? Create a statewide database posting every person who drinks? Violation of rights, anyone? Mr. Waddoups, if underage people want to drink, they will regardless of the fact that a drink is mixed in plain sight or if certain drinks are for sale in a gas station. These laws do nothing except waste time and tax money, so do us all a favor, and keep your religious beliefs to yourself and stop trying to push it on the whole state. This state has a bad enough reputation due to the right wing extremists like you.

Instead of the action urged by HRC I think you should praise Senator Buttars said about the LBGT people. They have taken over the Episcopal Church and ruined it and no telling what or who next.

Your treatment of Senator Buttars is shameful. Freedom of speech? Not allowed for heterosexuals or people of faith! Gays can vandalize and threaten churches. But to say something against them -no that is a hate crime. We desparately NEED to hear TRUTH, not "political correctness". Senator Buttars deserves better than to be treated like this!

I applaud Senator Buttars for having the tenacity to stand up for what is moral and true! Regardless of what the activists and others in today’s society today may say, homosexuality is an abomination. It is time we all do as Senator Buttars and stand up for truth because we have been passive and let the activists impose their agenda upon us for too long. They are destroying the foundation upon which this country was built and by caving in to them you are deserting the traditional values that made the Republican Party strong.

As Matt Barber, the director of cultural affairs at Liberty Counsel stated, "Until they [GOP] start defending those values unapologetically and boldly as Senator Buttars has done here, they will continue to lose membership," he points out. "And who needs Democrat-Lite? So having a bunch of RINOS, Republicans in name only, in the GOP has just decimated the Republican Party."

Wake up before it is too late to take our country back and reinstate Senator Buttars!

I am a Texan, and so Senator Waddoups may not give a flip what I think. However I have to write and let him know what he did in disciplining Senator Buttars is why the Republican Party is losing everywhere. What has happened to courage and honor for truth? Where are any conservative leaders with any backbone in the Republican Party??!! There is a HUGE leadership vacuum that someone somewhere has got to fill. I am so weary of this crap.

I'm not from Utah but I want to put my two cents worth in. Shame on you Senator Waddoups for disciplining Senator Buttars. You are a COWARD!!! Your very act of removing Buttars from the post as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee is one of the reasons why Repubs ARE NOT in power. Americans have LOST faith in the Repub party. If we want lilly-livered weaklings running our country, then we can vote for Dems! We need some REAL men and women who are REAL Repubs, not RINO's like you are. We need real conservative leadership, and you sir, are not that.

I'm sick and tired of you politicians always trying to be so PC about everything. You all sound like a bunch of mindless zombies who all say the same thing over and over. God forbid somebody with some moral convictions stand up and say how they feel! All you care about is crushing anyone who goes against the grain, and might speak the truth. You disgust me like the rest of them! No wonder the average citizen has 0% trust in the government. Keep pushing and pushing the American public and see what will happen.....

Senator, I urge you to reconsider your actions against Senator Buttars. To gag his viewpoint in one of the great moral debates of our times is incorrect, unfair and shows a lack of courage.
