mark bond 5 years, 3 months ago on Our View: Medical marijuana centers should be banned

The is a very well written and logical article. The vocal minority will have a very hard time logically arguing against simple facts such as the ridiculous notion that all of a sudden there has been an outbreak of debilitating illnesses requiring 6.2 percent of the population to need marijuana. So they will resort to "indignation" and name calling as a last resort to trying to hold on to their recreational use of an illegal substance.

“It’s an inconvenience. There’s no way around it,” Haskins said Tuesday. “That is a little bit of a problem for a lot of hunters. We know we’re going to hear about it in our office. But the bottom line is it’s not a huge impact.”

"There's no way around it"? Sure there is, put it off until next Spring's melt off. No one is using the road for the next six month's after hunting season anyway.

"it's not a huge impact." Of course it is a huge impact which could easily be avoided. It is impacting one of the highest uses of the road all year! It is a huge deal if some guy from the front range or out of state plans his entire time off/vacation only to lose hours of time when he gets there and the road is closed! I am not even a hunter and I can understand this.

If this was a business enterprise, they would never make this decision. But it is typical government decision making!

Obama is the one who rode into town on the promise of "change" and better days. The only thing that has changed is the national economy, debt and unemployment are worse than ever. Of course he is the one to point fingers at today. This is true regardless of how you feel about Bush or any other previous administration. Duh.


mark bond 5 years, 5 months ago on Goldberg delivers keynote at Freedom Conference in Steamboat

Hey Freerider, "Goldberg has zero idea's about how to fix anything other than point fingers at the wrong guy"

Isn't that exactly what you just did!? Bush has been gone for 3 years and you are still pointing your finger at him?


mark bond 5 years, 5 months ago on City releases Steamboat Springs Airport plans

Why is the city spending public funds for a facility which benefits few, if any, local residents. If these well off private airplane owners want to avoid driving 20 miles to Hayden like everyone else has to do, let them pay for their own "local" airport. This is elitism at its worst and someone should put an end to it immediately. I am a conservative and the only thing which irritates me more than the government taking money from successful individuals in order re-distribute it is the government taking money from the hard-working general public to benefit only a few well off individuals!

So does Ruppel really believe that people willingly pay $20 to leave their car for a couple minutes to help someone with luggage or make sure a flight has not been cancelled. The sign does not even designate how much the fine is, so how can increasing it help? Give me a break!

“I think it’s good,” said Jacob Wise, owner of Mary’s Medical. “The city needs to make some money.” Yeah, Jacob, making money "hand over fist" selling mind altering drugs to anyone who wants it. When was the last time you heard of a legitimate businessman saying more taxes is good? Hint, not!


mark bond 5 years, 8 months ago on Kevin Fisher: Medical marijuana centers help patients

If Kevin Fisher is really concerned about the patients and tax revenue, as opposed to merely enriching himself, why not advocate legitimizing the process through licensed pharmacists? Not likely!


mark bond 5 years, 8 months ago on Steamboat City Council to discuss ban on medical marijuana businesses

I believe Kevin Fisher is being a little disingenuous in suggesting that any other new business would feel the same threat of a ban as the sale of marijuana or suggesting he is totally blindsided by this suggestion. Come on!
