outsiderlookingin 6 years, 5 months ago on Steamboat's practices typical

Typical politicians--- "Well everyone else is doing it why cant't we"what a joke 2 wrongs don't make a right. The city should enforce the laws it writes or don't bother writing them. Oh that's right the city has no time or manpower- they're to busy with barking dog complaints and petty parking issues!!!!

Hence the problem with percentages. Even with the same percent raise the rich get richer and the poor continue to struggle. 3% of 100 grand widens the gap between those with 3% making 38 grand a year

I was talking to a couple of guys the other day and they said they put in 3oz of acetone to the tankfull and doubled their gas mileage. Don;t know the long term effect on the engine but since acetone burns cooler than gas it sould not cause a problem. just puttin it out there.

Hence the problem with society today. Coming up as the son of a marine from Korea my brothers and i took our lumps and turned out pretty good as far as overall society is concerned. However try raising your kids the same way and child protecive services and the cops will be at your door. limitied disipline at home, less at school (How long will a strict disiplinarian Principle last in this town?) and yet the strict disipline in the military is the answer. Sumthin'funny goin on Luuuucy!!!

outsiderlookingin 6 years, 6 months ago on Rob Douglas: We all live in glass houses

As an instructor once told a classroomful of cadets--"At one time long ago the following speech would not have to take place". So many things today have to repeated that should never be said in the first place. In church "Please turn off your cell phones" at the ball game "Please remove you caps for the singing of the national anthem" and everything Rob just wrote about. Call me old school but bring back the old days!!!!

I think the 383 city employees should just take the day off and stay home, the hot air alone that is saved will cool the planet by 10 degree's.. They don't accomplish much when they show up anyway.

I know what's going to happen 20 years from now a guy like Cook is going to come along with great plans for the lot the Iron Horse sits on and offer the city .10$ on the dollar, the city will jump on it to be glad their done with the place, people will be up in arms again and nothing will have changed.. Just like Dream Island
