Neil O'Keeffe 2 months, 3 weeks ago on Sally Claassen: Can honesty be rallying cry?

Well stated Sally, in order for that to happen we all need to put our egos and ideologies aside and look at the bigger picture. As crazy as things are right now I had every expectation that Trump would fulfill Michael Moor's moniker of being a "Human Molotov Cocktail" and agree or not, we would not be going down this road of real meaningful change had the establishment candidate HRC been elected?

I sincerely believe that his hatred, bigotry, rhetoric, truthiness (whatever you want to call it) will help to unite many previously disparate groups against a common and very threatening enemy risking our supposed democracy and very way of life. I have jokingly thought that the best way to unite us as a people would be if we were invaded by aliens, well strangely enough it has happened. I also think Trump is a puppet being played by Steve Bannon, Mike Pence and others and that they have a much darker agenda so we must be careful of what we wish for. Stay vigilant people, UNITED WE STAND-DIVIDED WE FALL!

Talk about picking "winners and losers" our most recent abomination in the White House is now deciding which religions are acceptable, but I'm sure that is AOK for the minority of US citizens that voted for him. Totally ludicrous! After all HYPOCRISY RULES THE DAY! Thanks for the advise Scott good point!

I agree Scott, just fed up with the " Government is Bad" argument from so many on the right until it comes to: Out of control Military Spending (multiples beyond the next ten industrialized nations combined) Control over women's reproductive rights Control over who can marry Control over who can vote Oh and don't touch by government controlled healthcare (Medicare) or Pension (Social Security) while you are at it.

I am all for a combination of free enterprise and government partnerships especially when the almighty dollar gets in the way of the greater good (affordable health care, clean air & water, safe roads and bridges; FOR ALL). But our current form of government seems incapable of finding this balance largely due to special interest and ineptitude. Hopefully that will all change one day, but I'm not holding my breath. Until then, HYPOCRISY WILL CONTINUE TO RULE THE DAY!

Carl, anyone quoting Adam Smith as an argument for supporting unbridled capitalism especially when it comes to basic human rights has zero credibility. Oh let me guess, you don't believe in human rights either? Your Darwinian approach to economics has no intrinsic value when applied to basic human rights. Let me guess; you are going to quote Aynn Rand next to support your reptilian (fight or flight) viewpoint. LOL!

Free market healthcare caveat emptor, predatory and profit driven above all else. If we can't make money on sickness, death and dying then we can't call ourselves a true democracy now can we?

Great news, this should solve our housing problems and help to assure that the working middle class have a place in Steamboat. NOT! maybe if you divided them up into a 30 lot subdivision. The rich get richer the question is at who's expense? When are they going to stop the brutal marketing of this town, not anytime soon would be my guess.
