"it’s just a matter of time until an injustice born of irrational fear is abolished."
Finally something we can all agree on. Party on Wayne!
Wow, the term "monkeys" was taken from Brandon's post so don't flatter yourselves, monkey's have much thicker skin then any of you.
Well said Brandon, but the monkeys need to be fed. Don't expect any reasonable/rational minded comments from this crowd. All very predictable IMHO.
Not to mention having a plan and staying with the plan (as in diving) to look out for your buddie. Staying within reach/earshot of one another isn't always easy (whistles help) but makes a big difference when problems arise. Also knowing where you are going instead of following some one else's tracks may help avoid situations like this. Last season I think there were 6 rescues in one day out of Fish Creek Canyon all because no one knew where they were going and were simply following others tracks. Common sense goes a long way but may be in short supply these days. IMHO!
The suggestion to never go into the backcountry without your cellphone should also be accompanied by pack, water, food, matches, compass...and the ability to spend the night out if need be. The thinking that a cell phone can take the place of being prepared for the worst in the wilderness is ludicrous at best and generally the reason why so many unnecessary rescues are required. So sure, have your cell phone with you along with all you other essential gear and in the event you do get lost or are injured hopefully you will have a cell phone connection, but don't rely on it. And thanks to RCSR for all they do?
"Attorney Steve Zansberg said government officials at the federal level are not subject to state laws about open meetings. Additionally, the governor, as a single government official, is not considered a public body and therefore not subject to the Sunshine Law." Much to do about nothing as usual!
Selective Amnesia and Hypocrisy rule the day. Where was all the self righteous indignation for the unwarranted abuse of power under the previous regime? What is so difficult to understand? "Attorney Steve Zansberg said government officials at the federal level are not subject to state laws about open meetings. Additionally, the governor, as a single government official, is not considered a public body and therefore not subject to the Sunshine Law." As long as our politics continue to be a tit for tat board game nothing of any significance will ever get accomplished and that is a sad outcome for the American people. WAKE UP SHEEPLE!
It would be downright unAmerican to do anything else. Our entire economic model is based on needless growth and consumption and that isn't about to change anytime soon. Sustainability like Socialism is becoming a dirty word. To paraphrase Gandhi "We must be the change we wish to see in the world." Cheers!
I can't believe I am saying this Mark but I couldn't agree more. I especially like the comment that "the church is supposed to be a hospital for simmers and not a country club for saints." Hopefully we will all find more to agree on in the coming year. Also, thank you Tim for opening your place of worship to all, closed doors and minds work best when they are open. Thanks for sharing!
Oh goodie! They should all feel right at home!
