To Bandmama, Point taken, but the Cheech and Chong mentality is long forgotten as such, we have our own reasons for our support. Sure many just want to toke and others have gleaned great benefits, but there is a great GREY area between the two that we will never know. Personally I think weed is a cure for alcoholism, I am over 50 and I have seen great differences in the positive versus other attitudes of many people on weed versus anything. ALSO, I had 20/20 vision all my life until the last few years when I can't read small print without help, but on the rare occasions with the benefit of THC provided by friends, I can see an elk on the Flat Tops, or a fly on a horse butt THAT I COULD NOT without such benefit. There is something magical about THC, it opens the mind, eyes, appitite, subconscience, and so many other things. Why deny such a positive thing to the public?, I am a semi-pro artist, it has helped me create at times, and has anybody been really evil on THC?, if so, please let me know! Has anybody had road rage on weed?, or really caused a major accident?
We should concentrate on keeping Meth out of the 'boat!!, RIGHT?, SPD?
KUDOS TO STEAMBOAT AND ROUTT!!!!, HOME RULE RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Why was a cop stationed in the old courthouse right outside the polling place? ISN'T IT ILLEGAL TO POLL WITHIN 100 YARDS OF A POLLING LOCATION? OOOOOOOOOOOOOO, WE ARE SCARED!, IF WE GET BUSTED WITH OUR AVERAGE SIZED STASH WITHOUT A SCRIPT, WE GET A BIG $50 FINE FROM JUDGE JIMMY, AND LAUGH ABOUT IT LATER, EVER SINCE THE 80s.
I HOPE THE ILLEGAL POLLING FINE IS A LOT MORE, BUT PROBABLY NOT SINCE SCALPING TICKETS IS VIRTULLY LEGAL IN THIS STATE. THE COPS STARTED THIS REFERENDUM, AS DISSAPOINTED AS THEY ARE, THEY SHOULD BE GLAD WE DON'T HAVE THE METH PROBLEM OF CRAIG!
It was really funny when I heard a girl say to the courthouse cop, "Why are you here, in case a riot breaks out?". I felt like making an issue of it, BUT, you can't fight city hall, even when they are in the minority, BUT WE CAN VOTE THEM OUT!
If you want to turn off the tourists and watch their summer holiday money disappear just make the parade more commercial, silly, tacky and cheesy than it is, with every yokel with their own money promoting agenda. Bore the crap out of them and just see if they ever come back, who wants to watch tow trucks go by?
I know this for a fact, I had people come here years ago and were not impressed with the parade, and have not been back in the summer. Its supposed to be about America, not 1-800-BUY-MYSTUFF!, 1-800-BUY-MYSTUFF!, 1-800-BUY-MYSTUFF!, like we hear on the radio all the time.
We should make a rule that if a semi or a tow truck with logos, etc. wants to be in the parade, it needs to be 90% covered in crepe paper. If you Google images for "crepe paper float", you will see some great examples.
This will keep the lazy ones out of the parade. How many of us like tow trucks?!, to me they only represent money lost to a toothpick chewing driver!, except the AAA trucks.
Yes, quality would be good, but many have no sense of it, so they can't present it.
Buggacat, I totally agree with you, I have not been to the parade since I saw a semi truck, (a full sized reefer), advertising Tony Lama boots in the parade, in 2002 I think it was. Is this what we want to portray as American?, a big sell out?!, to me its disgusting commercialism!
Keep the advertisers, marketers and politicians/political parties out of the parade!! They can have their tents and pass out their flyers, keep the parade about the community and the kids!, we will all enjoy it much more!
We get enough commercials on TV, Radio, and the internet, we don't want more in our parade!!!
It was a good 4th, and the fireworks were really loud and colorful, no doubt. We all had a good time, as usual, the food, friends and festivities were great!
Not to be unpatriotic, but if that was the state's biggest, then I am Mark Twain!
The paper said it would be 22 minutes, it was barely 11, and many of the recent years were longer, more fun and bigger, even when it rained.
We don't need a lot of BS hype to sell the fireworks, folks will show up in any case, even Brian Harvey didn't believe it, did you hear how hard he laughed at the guy on the radio?
The Rockies put on a better display every year, as do most of the suburban malls, and the civic center show can't be outdone in this state, I don't think Wendy DuBord has ever seen the shows down there. "based on an informal study of other communities"?, which ones?, Oak Creek and Hayden?
I guess they blew most of the budget on the 14 inch thing, which was no big deal. I was hoping for a Beldar Conehead thing, ever see Coneheads?, it was a small nuclear charge.
mental illness could be involved?, YA THINK?, YA THINK?!!!....
IF HE IS LOOSE AMONG US NOW, LET'S GET THE HORSES AND THE TORCHES...
I might have bumped him off a tall Rabbit Ears cliff and done the world a favor! I drive 2 to 4 thousand miles a month for work, I see total moron potentially killer drivers all the time, OFTEN IN THE SNOW ON THE PASSES. Sometimes I call the cops on them, AND what do our boys in blue do, virtually nothing! They tell me to make a video, and I do sometimes, hopefully to get them off the road!, BUT WHY SHOULD IT BE MY JOB?
DIDN'T THIS PSYCHO IDIOT AT LEAST HAVE HIS LICENSE YANKED AND CAR TOWED AND IMPOUNDED?, OR IS HE OFF TO ANOTHER STATE TO CHASE PINK ELEPHANTS DOWN THE ROAD AND MAYBE KILL SOMEBODY?
WHAT THE PUCK DO WE PAY TAXES FOR???, SO WIMPY COPS CAN KNUCKLE UNDER TO OUT OF STATE PSYCHOS? OH, I GET IT, HE'S A RICH KID WITH GREAT LAWYERS, SO ITS ALL GOOD, DADDY WARBUCKS WILL LINE EVERYBODY'S POCKETS!
MAYBE SOMETIME IN THE FUTURE I WILL BE THE AMERICAN MAD MAX, IF NO REAL LAW WITH A BACKBONE EXISTS.
Yeah right!, unless you are a snake you will not get under a wire 8 inches off the ground without getting zapped!
Electroshock Therapy is perfect, since you gotta be nuts to do a course like that for no money, there are much safer ways to stay in shape.
I took Juice Plus for a while, all it did was give me a bellyache, it messed with my digestion.
Yes, Please nominate Sarah Palin in 2012!, then Obama will be a shoe-in again!
Sarah Palin is so ignorant she thought Africa was a country, and she could see Russia from her home.
Here are some gems that her pea sized brain produced;
"'Refudiate,' 'misunderestimate,' 'wee-wee'd up.' English is a living language. Shakespeare liked to coin new words too. Got to celebrate it!'" --a Tweet sent by Sarah Palin in response to being ridiculed for inventing the word "refudiate," proudly mistaking her illiteracy for literary genius, July 18, 2010
"But obviously, we've got to stand with our North Korean allies." --Sarah Palin, after being asked how she would handle the current hostilities between the two Koreas, interview on Glenn Beck's radio show, Nov. 24, 2010
''They are also building schools for the Afghan children so that there is hope and opportunity in our neighboring country of Afghanistan.''
—Sarah Palin, speaking at a fundraiser in San Francisco, Oct. 5, 2008
''I'm the mayor, I can do whatever I want until the courts tell me I can't.''
—Sarah Palin, as quoted by former City Council Member Nick Carney, after he raised objections about the $50,000 she spent renovating the mayor's office without approval of the city council
