In response to Donna Harris:
It is fascinating how many of the intolerant control freaks who complain about other people’s property are either unsustainable government retirees or trust fund babies who enable and support the global debt-as-money fraud complete with its quadrillion dollars of phony derivatives and 100+ trillion dollars of unfunded liabilities.
Hank Williams wrote a song for just such occasions: “If you mind your own business, then you won’t be minding mine.”
My great grandfather came here in the early 1880s as a blacksmith for the railroad, worked hard, saved his money, opened up a furniture store, and rebuilt it twice after it had burned down twice. All that was before the IRS, withholding, and the type of tyrant-minded control freaks who are addicted to minding other people’s business.
Great grandpa raised his kids here. My deceased mother was born here. I was born here. This is America. One man’s trash is another man’s treasure. In hard economic times used lumber and pipes are supplies, and bent nails get straightened out and re-used. FYI, after my deceased parents passed on, I must have dumped out more than two dozen dumpsters of their “treasures”. So what? That’s just part of life.
If your delicate politically-manipulative sensitivities can’t handle most Americans’ traditional level of tolerate-your-neighbor individual freedom, then perhaps you are the one who should move to a place more suited to your totalitarian world view.
The type of person you speak of makes you sick, right? Well your overly judgmental type makes me even sicker. To use your own words, with all due respect, it’s time you “stepped up”, “did your job”, and got over your little old self and grew some grace and mercy.
P.s. My guess is that a very tiny percentage of people (if any at all) in Mesa County give a hoot about whether or not your friends are impressed by any particular thing. Fifty years from now people will likely be throwing away your “treasures”. You might want to think about that.
