Tim Keenan 1 week, 1 day ago on Robert B. Stevenson: Shame on Steamboat Today, Sturm

Yeah, after all, we seem to have plenty of republicans around here prone to making grandiose statements of dubious validity. Just pay one of them. :-)


Tim Keenan 1 week, 3 days ago on Swayed by remarks of Gold Star Mothers, Horn says she'll vote for Trump, 'Make America Safe Again'

If she said she was reluctantly supporting Trump out of party unity, I could at least understand if not agree. But she's saying she has succumbed to fear, and she's proud of it. And she somehow thinks that someone with the business record and all-around maturity of Trump will have a coherent foreign policy that will get fewer of our soldiers killed, apparently not realizing or caring that Obama has done pretty well in that regard -- much better than the guy who preceded him.

Noted for future reference. Doesn't give me much confidence that she herself is fit to be a public servant.


Tim Keenan 1 month, 1 week ago on Ken Collins: A scary scenario

Ok, then how 'bout banning large-capacity magazines like we tried to do in Colorado? Nah, that would make too much sense. After all, we law-abiding citizens should be able to blast away 30 rounds at a time if we want. Makes us feel better. Except everyone's a law-abiding citizen, until they're not. The reflexive "they're-gonna-take-our-guns" paranoia dreamed up by the right and profligated through the right-wing media echo chamber is getting people killed. But hey, the gun makers are lovin' it!


Tim Keenan 1 month, 2 weeks ago on Steamboat night club faces possible fines, liquor license suspension

Hope they go easy on 'em; those guys are trying their best. The law's the law, but bouncers can't be everywhere at once. I'm sure the whole patrons drinking outside bit happens occasionally at many places all over this town.


Tim Keenan 1 month, 3 weeks ago on City Council calls first dibs on free concert tickets, VIP passes

Please tell me I've been redirected to SteamboatOnion.com.

At least Lacy seems to know why he's there -- heavy workload and all. Who was that girl that narrowly lost last time around? Steamboat needs you.


Tim Keenan 2 months ago on Dennis Brust: Government control of health care

"Republicans also believe health care decisions are between the patient and their doctor." If this is true, they must want to get the for-profit insurance companies out of the way. It's pretty simple. Do you want healthcare run by an entity whose purpose is to make maximum gain for its shareholders, or an entity whose purpose is to serve the people. Hmmm...
