Uevegues voted for Palin and drinks Fox News Koolaid. Lots of right wing musicians out there.
Very well written piece. The extremist comments are also very clear. Rabid right wingers abound in these parts and Maketa caters to them. Now Maketa can go to Alaska and work with the Palins.
Hughes is nothing more than a blowhard. For years he swore he would lead the movement to close Fort Carson if they didn't the Pinon Canyon Expansion. When it didn't happen he blew soft and didn't do anything. Hot air should not be rewarded.
It will be up to the Indy to dig deeper into this fire story. Why were there only 150 firefighters fighting the fire a day and a half in but over a thousand when it was almost put out? Why was the county so grossly unprepared for a fire in the Black "Forest"? Was internal advice ignored? The local tv will not do this story. For them this was just a news event. Sheriff Maketa was a hero. There were lots of silver linings and endless "how do you really feel questions?"
The Sheriff's highly charged and inaccurate ranting about guns is shocking. You'd think he'd be more interested in stopping skin heads like those who killed a pizza delivery man and the state prison commissioner from repeating their acts in the county. The photos of the 211 gang members look like they could have jumped off the pages of a gun nut magazine, the same magazine that is whooping it up for our nut case sheriff.
Instead of laying off civilians why don't they cut the Combat Aviation Brigade? That would stop wasteful construction and release the money designated for 120 new helicopters. That would save $3 billion right there.
