Scott W. Citizens used to do jobs like ag and meat packing but LBJ came up with the great society and the war on poverty and it became easier to just live off the federal government than to go to a job every day. I know you are a young whippersnapper but stuff got grown and meat got slaughtered in the 40's and 50's by American citizens.

Dan Shores You forgot to explain how the country is going to be better off when it is like Baltimore, Detroit, Chicago, St. Louis, Cleveland, Newark, or any other city run by left wing, liberal, socialists. I am anxiously awaiting your explanations. You are correct. The socialists have taken over this country. I can hardly wait for the entire country to be just like the aforementioned cities.

James Patterson How many families consisting of a black man, white woman and two biracial children have you had at your dinner table multiple times? I have had one family described above and I worked with him at the Yakima County Jail in Yakima Washington for five years as a corrections officer. He and his family were good friends. I expect you will call me a racist for the next thing I say. Anyone who thinks that what goes on in the ghettos of every major city in the country is a result of slavery is uninformed. It all began with LBJ's War on Poverty which has been as successful as the War on Drugs. I do not know the current figure but the last I remember 75% of black children are born out of wedlock. Check the figures for black on black murders. Once in a while a white or Hispanic or oriental police officer unjustifiably kills a black man. I expect you will find 95% of black men murder black men. Some black men are in prison wrongly. So are some other of other races. I have had two other good black friends, one in Texas while working for Humble Oil and Refining and one in Seattle while working at Boeing I currently have no black friends as there is a shortage of 70 year old black men in Steamboat. I now invite you to share your experience with current or past black friends. Oh, I coached youth soccer with an Indian, {from India} a Hispanic, and a person of Spanish ancestry in Denver 35 years ago. All were good friends. Any stories you care to share? Any 70 year minorities want to meet for breakfast? I will buy.

It is all good! Do not worry Be Happy! I like paying sales tax on my groceries to bring people from across the country who mostly have more money than me on ski vacations and summer vacations. Some of you uninformed people think about that when this is on the ballot again!

I voted no on it because I do not think it is right for Routt County residents to pay sales tax on groceries so well to do aka rich people can pay less to fly here on ski vacations. Talk about robbing from the poor to give to the rich.

If Ski Corp gives out bags of money, they will need a higher sales tax to help fly rich tourists to town for ski vacations. My wife and just took the biggest trip our lives. We went on an 18 day cruise to Hawaii. As far as I know no Hawaiian tax dollars helped us get there.

James I nominate Carter for the worst president of my lifetime. Double digit inflation and double digit interest rates. Those were the days! I think Carter was a good man who meant well but could not get the job done. Eisenhower was he first President I can really recall and I liked him because he was a soldier, not a professional politician. I do not know much about Truman but he did have the courage to nuke Japan. Yes, incinerating hundreds of thousands people was not a pretty sight but American casualties to have invaded Japan were estimated to be astronomical and Japan's civilian deaths would probably have been higher than the two cities that were nuked.

Chis My post was discussing Presidents of my lifetime. I am old but not that old. I am aware of your stated historical fact about Hemp which was a large commercial crop in those days and used for making rope and I do not remember what else. Does your history book say they were pot heads or did they just grow pot?

Russell I think we may have met at a birthday party in P-Burg last summer but at my age, who can remember names. I second everything you said. My 4 grandchildren are being home schooled in Illinois by their mother, something I am very thankful for. I wish you the best of luck and God's blessings raising your grandchildren.

James Clinton, Obama, and Bush II? 3 of the sorriest presidents in my lifetime of 70 years. I expect you are too young to remember when this country had a real President.
