Ken Collins 3 weeks, 1 day ago on Ken Collins: Opportunity lost

So you all are fine with a liar, bigot, racist, misogynistic, adulterer, narcissist and incompetent ( 6 bankruptcies)? Think about it. Every time he declared, thousands of hard working people got stiffed while he evades obligations and future taxes. Make America Pay Again should be on his Chinese made hats. Wow. We have lowered the bar, haven't we?

Ken Collins 3 months ago on Long dormant Stagecoach Ski Area south of Steamboat under contract to sell in October

As a South Routter, I am very happy to see this happening. It is a special place that I believe a lot of Steamboat people are actually unaware of its beauty, especially in the fall. A "Clark Store" type of business, planned and designed already, would be a great step in the developement also. "Boaters" who can't afford the $100+/day ticket or the high season ticket price would have a good alternative. The jobs this would create and tax base would be a boost for the whole county.
Dan, I've lived there for almost 16 years through all kinds of weather and it's no different than Elk River road. It's winter driving. And maybe this speeds up the CR14 road work.

Ken Collins 5 months, 2 weeks ago on Ken Collins: A scary scenario

I did not nor will I ever advocate taking away guns. It's impossible anyway with over 300 million of them. I will never see the logic or morality of civilians being able to own or carry assault weaponry. It's not for safety. Psychologists can talk forever why people want them. What I find most disturbing, from the Orlando event, is that Republicans will always ask the NRA what they should do. McConnell even said that a few days ago. Several others have done the same. A statistic came out that show that the NRA donated $31 million to 36 of the GOP Senators that voted against two Dem. measures that 80% of Americans, including gun owners and Republicans, were for.
In other words, we can all be more truthful, if we just stop misspelling the opposition party of the Democrats. It's no longer the GOP, but the NRA.

Ken Collins 5 months, 2 weeks ago on Ken Collins: A scary scenario

When I wrote "half-baked", I was referring to the probability of being on the side of alcohol impaired at 2a.m. so judgement is impaired. What % of gun owners would react in a sensible manner at that time of night with bullets spraying and lights flashing? Very low I'd bet. There are trained soldiers who freeze when being shot at. Unless the patrons are ex-Special-ops, I'd fear them as much as the nut with the gun. And explain, pro gunners, what you think cops would do. You folks never ever mention that scenario. Ask a cop if he/she wants a bunch of "heroes" returning fire as they pull up. Is everybody wearing name tags "shooter", "patron", "wannabe hero", "scared s##tless"? Have you guys been shot at in a close range situation? The noise alone can disorient most people. We've all seen police videos of trained cops who can't hit a human target on the other side of a car. One more thing, conservatives. You always label those who you are anti to as progressive liberals, just like you apparently need to use the term Islamic terrorists. And WTH is wrong with progress? Not all of us want to live back in the 50s.

Ken Collins 6 months, 2 weeks ago on Loretta Van Norstrand: No vote a mistake

You're right on 2 points about Trump. He has exposed the GOP corruption. And he is totally disconnected, to reality.

Catherine, to those Americans who are gay, or of color or somewhat to the left of Genghis Khan, Scalia was callous and insulting.

Ken Collins 9 months, 3 weeks ago on David Ihde: Ihde responds to letter

Fred, Mark, David, Gary, et.al., how you can read Dan Shores letter(s) and dispute the facts, not opinions, is a trademark of the GOP. Obama nominates, the GOP can sit on their hands or their heads. Let the American people decide again in the Presidential election. (Not the GOP's strong suit, by the way.)

Ken Collins 9 months, 3 weeks ago on David Ihde: Ihde responds to letter

The House turned GOP as much because the gerrymandering they did. There were more Democratic votes than GOP in the House races in 2012 but the GOP cherry-picked the districts. In 2008 Obama won by more than 6 mill., and more than 5 mill. in 2012. That shows more of a mandate than little gerrymandered district votes. All I'm saying, as Dan Shores did in his comment to my letter, is that NOT to give Obama the chance to put up a candidate is actually unconstitutional. Let him put one up.
And Dan is right about the lack of respect the GOP has shown this President. It's shameful and unprecedented. And don't try to say it has nothing to do with race, because that is certainly a factor. Another reason why the GOP is so wrong on this.

Would all of you who are slamming me please read Dan Shores comment, twice for those who need to. That's all I'm saying. And there is no refuting that. No POTUS has been treated so shamefully. Close your computers and move along, now.

Dan K, Obama can put up an ideologue that is as far left as Scalia was far right, if he could find one. But we know he won't. He'll choose a good one and he has many to choose from. There are several that will be a tough job for the GOP to not even consider or vote down. They play a game of Russian roulette if they carry out McConnell's statement. But then, logical, unbiased and constitutional thinking is not the long suit of the GOP candidates or hierarchy.
