rhys jones 1 day, 20 hours ago on Our view: City needs to stop stonewalling

Dudes, wake up: Everything happens behind closed doors, public meetings are mere morality plays, nobody will get charged, it'll all get swept under the rug, it's always somebody else's fault, business as usual, and that's the way it's always been.

Give me a red pencil, some time, and a full set of the city's books -- I'll bet I could send some people to jail. The graft is pervasive, from national to local. My mid-life crisis pends the insurance settlement. Colorado needs higher minimums.

So we're supposed to drop $92 million, on barely a quorum of a biased committee? Sure, try to fly that kite on election day.

No Savior will make it to the White House anyway. The Federal Reserve, Pentagon, and military-industrial complex will see to that. We're slaves to the regime.

I can't speak for the others, but as with any board or council meeting, I would feel like a fly in the soup.

I like Chesty Puller's response to that (Marine Colonel in Korea):

“We’re surrounded. That simplifies the problem.”

While I'm on the digression -- some other Puller quotes --

“They are a damn sight better than the U.S. Army. At least we know that they will be there in the morning.”

“The mail service has been excellent out here, and in my opinion this is all that the Air Force has accomplished during the war.”

“There are not enough Chinamen in the world to stop a fully armed Marine regiment from going whereever they want to go”

“Take me to the Brig. I want to see the real Marines."
