Actually Mark.......the Fed, just last week, said killing bald eagles and other large birds, as part of renewable energy.....is OKAY.....as long as you have a plan to minimize it in the long run. The new Fed law is in effect immediately and cancels the Fish and Wildlife Service's fines of the Wyoming Wind Farms that have tallied about 100 Bald Eagles thus far in 2013.
I think the numbers released today speak volumes. Over 300K Coloradans have signed up for free expanded Medicaide. About 9000 have signed up for health insurance where they pay at least a small percentage of the premiums.
I truly feel like I'm being raped by Obama and the Democratic Party on this. They'll just keep violating me as long as they're in power.....in out.....in out.
They'll use my taxes to buy votes of people who want things for free.
Your Government is tripling the cost of transporting Coal Ash, not because its caused any issues in the last 50 years but because they can and make Coal Energy more expensive....as well as concrete, steel and all the good things that come from Coal Ash. Long live wind mills and Man of LaMancha.
The Obama Admin is also reducing by 1000% the emissions allowed by a lead factory. Making it totally non economical to smelt lead in the US (save for military smelters). This is their way of bringing gun control to the US......make ammunition non affordable.
For the first time in my life I have to say that the President and his Party have become sleezy bastards.
My only salvation is that their (his) lack of education and experience, ......and naiveity, will force so many people and businesses out of business that none of their plans will come to pass. Rather than bringing the poor to middle class he'll bring the middle class to poor.....and be proud of it.
When are people going to wake up and smell his funk?
There's a bigger problem than all of that. In two years no pharmacists will know what other medications you're taking and whether they poorly interact. Simply...its not their problem unless you bring your entire medical chart to them and make an appoitment. There's only one drug store in Steamboat you speak to a Pharmacist and who goes to a Pharmacy with their entire medical record.
No Doctor will know what other Docs you're seeing and what they're treating you for.
Medicare and Medicaid have dictated exactly what the "cost" of treatments and drugs are for Insurance Companys are and Docs will/have stopped treatment for those costs (rather take up fishing) and Pharmacists keep adding layers between the Patient and the Pharmacist because they can't afford to talk with the Patient given the lack of insurance reimbursement. Go buy meat and chips in Safeway, whatever you buy in Walmart or Walgreens. That's what pays a Pharmacist's Salary.
So....believe in Obama Care.....and drop dead from a Chemical mis-Mix. No one's responsible save for yourself. Perhaps you'll survive.....if you studied medicine and pharmacology.
Want to take that chance? And its really a big chance.
You know....and I realise this isn't the 80's let alone the 70's.....but when I first came to Steamboat I slept in the back of my pickup until I met someone willing to "take me in" for awhile. Yeah I had cash, yeah I showered at the Health and Rec. Yeah I skied, frequented the local establishments and enjoyed the restaurants. Actually I was an O-4 in the Navy, a pilot and meandering my way to Grad School. I met guys like Jupiter Jones, Roger Perricone, Sue Johnson/Zantel, Ken Brenner, many of the "old locals".......fine folk. I know for a fact that this year's "Ski Bum" may be a future "Major Developer, City Council President, or Bank Owner".
Since then, well my family moved here after I retired from the Navy. We've spent a ton of money here raising 4 kids, SSWSC, Steamboat Soccer, Little League, American Legion, RE-2, Boy Scout Troop 1124, etc.. We've volunteered for just about everything there is to volunteer for and launched a couple of profitable small businesses. Like to think we've been a valuable part of this wonderful community. And its the warm Steamboat welcome I always and continue to receive that got me interested in moving here.
Being a "ski bum" has a well founded tradition. It doesn't mean you're a "bum" it means you're a "ski bum".....like the pleasure one gets from picking up a free lift pass, Hollywood makes movies about this and....well, some get to live the life. Personally I'd make it more of an "unwritten" Steamboat policy to tolerate those things that made Warren Miller and Steamboat great.
And I'm going to go out on a limb here....if a serious "ski bum" needs a place to park his transporation.....my number is 846-1310 :)
Tongue in Cheek! Anglers Drive does look like a hot bed of criminal activity. What's next, free roaming dogs in Rita Valentine Park?....LOL
But it is enforceable. The NSA already admits to collecting every transaction/communication over the Internet. Its a pretty easy leap from there to have the Government just send you a bill every year for Internet Sales Tax. Hey...it creates jobs for good Democratic voting patriots. :)
He's a "fence rider" for sure. Gives everyone a sore crotch.
This is Funny!
I'm normally a Republican voting guy but I'm not going to support you on this.
Build your house near a River and sometime its going to flood. Build your house in a forest or a sage brush covered valley and at some time its going to burn.
Sorry...that's the facts of life.
I'be built/lived in 8 homes in my life. Each had its own amazing attrubutes. Some were on the ocean. Some in the pines. Some with glorious views. Some I paid $10K per year for a private fire source of water or severe winter storm waves for the pleasure.
But what I never asked was for my fellow neighbors to accept responsibility for where I choose to make my home.
So....Steve....I have little deep concern about homes built in forests that go up in flames. I have little concern for folks that enjoy the "brook's character" that becomes the raging torent. I have little concern for golf courses and hiking/bike paths built in known flood plains. I have litle concerns for California or New Jersey folks who live on the beach with known threats as well as benifits.
Its time to let personal responsibility be personal responsibility. Don't count on the Government to bail you out.
