Re: “Reader: First outrages come first

I never thought I would be looking back at the George W. Presidency with a nostalgic feeling that he may have been stupid but he surrounded himself with intelligent people and took their advice. Our current feckless fool can't hear any voice but his own calls his idiocy genius and can't seem to be capable of appointing any person of intelligence to any of the many jobs he is continually fires the people he put in the position to begin with after they try and get him to hear anything that even comes close to making sense. I often wonder what the actual powers that be, behind the scenes are up to that they require such a huge distraction for. Scares the shit out of me.

Re: “Environmentalist Cameron Brown hauls a grand piano out to Garden of the Gods at sunrise

Doesn't anyone else remember that the Garden of the Godds is a Native American holy place? All I ever hear about is the tourist attraction bullshit. Being native and being told that I have to stay on their man made paths, and I can't visit caves and secret places shown to me by my grandfather. I am not allowed to show my grandchildren the same places. Isn't freedom of religion a big deal for you people? Only if your religious holy places are man made or don't interfere with tourism. No one knows anything anymore.

Re: “Reader: Stop condoning creekside campers

Dear Mr Bill Walters, your entire statement is ignorant but I would like to focus on the suggestion that these people are creekside camping for no good reason. They are there because they have nowhere else to go . Is there some magic town that is hoping to increase its homeless population. Did for you find the Big Rock Candy Mountain? !!!

Re: “Reader: Whatever it is we're doing about panhandlers, it's not working

Just because someone is healthy enough to work doesn't mean that they can live on the money earned. I don't know anyone who can afford rent, utilities, food, clothing and transportation on a minimum wage salary. Maybe if we actually made employers pay a living wage so many people would not resort to begging.

Re: “Reader: No good deed...

Your Judeo Christian upbringing should have informed you that Jesus was a dirty homeless person.

Re: “Reader: The money is there, so let's go after it

When are the tax revenues generated by the legal marijuanna industry going to be used for the programs that were in the actual legislation we voted for. Money was supposed to be going to schools, the police, roads, ... Where is all the revenue they have reported collecting? Is it ever going to be distributed or do the tax collectors just get to keep making excuses? All of the afore mentioned groups are asking for money, why do I not hear anyone asking this question?
