"his misleading criticism of Israel as a human rights violator..." The articles I read that linked him to the Muslim Brotherhood also said stuff like this, which completely negates their credibility imo. International human rights law applies to every nation -- not just the ones we don't like. These are the same people who claimed that the Muslim Brotherhood was linked to Hillary Clinton through Weiner's wife, or something. Plenty of right-wing Christian radicals speak at CPAC along with more mainstream figures. Does this taint everyone who attends the conference? So I guess it depends. If you believe Trump is a neo-nazi because he said in the past that David Duke was a great guy, then I suppose you can claim Keith Ellison wants to bring Sharia Law to America. How far do you want to play the association game?

Lol; I'd love to know where you heard that, but I'm sure you didn't actually. And I'm very interested to know how Saudi Arabia fits into this neat little equation of yours.

"On the bright side, the front runner for DNC chair is an anit-semitic, homophobic, anti-American segregationist with documented ties to jihadi scum. So they've got that going for them." Interested to know which swamp you pulled that out of. If you mean he doesn't kowtow to Israel like the rest of the American establishment, I consider that a very good thing.

I don't know about other "Trump-averse" folks, but I'm afraid for the future based on who he has chosen to surround himself with, his constant need for self-gratification, and his continued vengeful, petulant attitude. His attitude speaks for itself. As far as what he might do: https://cei.org/sites/default/files/CEI%20Agenda%20for%20Congress%202017%20-%20%20FINAL.pdf Just read the table of contents, and remember that far from the pie-in-the-sky wish list of a big-industry funded, scorched-Earth, anti-worker organization, this could very well be the blueprint for the next Congress.

Tim Keenan 1 month ago on Summer visitor survey showing decline in biking numbers raises eyebrows at Steamboat Springs City Council meeting

I agree with Michelle about perhaps getting the average age of our tourists down a bit with a destination-quality trail system. I'm sure Scott can tell me, but I'd imagine younger people tend to spend more money at bars/restaurants/retail. I'd be interested to know how many tourists go to Fruita, Moab, etc. for mountain biking. I mean, are we talking thousands per weekend at prime time? Could Steamboat become such a destination with prime time around August-October with the proposed trails for Buff Pass, Mad Creek, Rocky Peak Hot Springs, Gun Creek...

Hopefully, the committee will be able to raise enough funds privately to do what needs to be done, and this lawsuit won't interfere with that. They're taking donations through Historic Routt County: http://historicrouttcounty.org. I'd rate the possibility of a legal settlement this winter as extremely unlikely... but I'm no lawyer. Anyway, if this forecast turns out to be correct, we'll soon find out how well it'll hold up under four feet of snow.

A dilapidated barn sounds pretty blighted to me. It'll be a shame if the thing collapses this winter while this little battle is going on. Seems like there's little enough left of historic Steamboat as it is.
