Get rid of ALL these recycled over and over and over GOOD ‘ol boys. It is obvious that they are the problem Pennington gets my vote.

Fenwick might have a chance of being persuasive if he would give us some concrete examples of unconstitutional activities in Mesa County that the sheriff can rectify. Absent such examples his letter is yet another misdirected waste of column space signifying nothing by a local * confused by radio entertainers who laugh at how they stir up the rubes. There’s big money in rabble rousing. Truth and thought are not a requirement. In fact, they just get in the way

Mr. Borgen reads the paper and is on the internet much more than I. He absolutely understands exactly what is happening to our country, our state and our county, and approves.
Our public lands are being shut down to the public by the BLM. Our County Commissioners are working hard to keep that from happening, without support from the Sheriff, the BLM will have their way in closing down our roads, trails and hunting areas. The laws are clear, RS 2477 defines the rights of the people of Colorado and the role of the Government.

Mr. Borgen also understands the limits imposed by this paper of 300 words to Letters to the Editor. If he could count the words, he would know it has that limit applied. To suggest I am wasting space is not accurate, his comment and this now needed reply are a waste, his complaint was expected. His intolerance of my position is also expected, his role as a progressive is the explanation for his calling me a “teabagger”.

“Big money” in rabble rousing? If I made a dime on my time spent fighting for my Country as a Tea Party activist, it would be news to me. Mr. Borgen however, understands completely the role of ACORN, their splitting off into new groups and the funding of their activities and where it comes from. He is right (make that left!), there is big money in “Rabble Rousing”, the people I associate with are the majority, the religious, the seniors, the taxpayers, the working public, (at least those that can find work) and the people that would give their lives for their Country and our Constitution as originally written. The Tea Party people don’t get funded by our Government; they get investigated by the IRS.

You, Mr. Borgen, are entitled to your thoughts, the same as I, but you sir, are not entitled to your distorted truths without being called out on them.

More wasted space, Mr. Fenwick. I think you have a little reading comprehension problem. The big money is enjoyed by those whose misinformation and lies you so slavishly follow. They win, the rubes lose.

Your right Mr. Borgen, your further comments are wasted space. I’m sure in your eyes I do have a reading comprehension problem, when I read, I look for the message in between the words. Your words are just that example. You have nothing further to add, only an open personal attack as progressives do, with hostility and inability to hold ground on any subject long enough to have a clear understanding of entirety.
I do not support those that gain for “Rabble Rousing”, I have no time for such people. If your reading comprehension is greater than mine, perhaps you should reread my previous comment. You missed my point; I am for the Constitution, as written, with Amendments, not to be interpreted, not to be ignored and not to be distorted. I am FOR The People, yes Mr. Borgen, that includes you and your rights also.

Mr.Fenwick, your love of the constitution is admirable but that document is interpreted every time someone reads it. Do you think the words of the authors mean exactly what they might today? Did they contemplate the size and complexity of the country as it exists today? What is the right way to interpret the constitution today? Why, your way of course. If you want an honest-to-god dialog you know where to find me. This is not the forum for your kind of endless “yeah, buts”. Come by on Friday and explain to whoever is there how you’d run the country, and why.

Mr. Borgen,
I have no interest in frustrating myself in front of your ‘group’. I’m sure I would have as much luck explaining my beliefs to them as you would explaining yours to any honest Tea Party member. As much as you would love to insert additional words to the Constitution, you are not able to. It is our Law, it is what we were formed with, what we live by. It is the reason we were the greatest Country in the world, the reason so many people would give their lives to allow their children to live here.

There is no need to change it, it may be modified by Amendment, and it is the reason that provision was put there.

I do not believe I had one “yeah, but” in any of my comments to you. Please stop assuming what I mean, mischaracterizing what I say or demeaning what I believe in, you do not know anything about me. I find your attacks on my person offensive. If you have reason to disagree with me, feel free. I do not appreciate your personal misrepresentations of me, my character or my intelligence.

Mr.Fenwick : Aw,poor baby! Your characterization of me is totally without merit but your reluctance to stand up in front of people and explain what you are all about says a lot about your strength of belief in what you profess to believe in. I think troll is an apt description. Stand up for what you believe in. See you Friday?

Say Mr Borgen. Just exactly in what manner is the method to change our constitution if it should be out of date. Tis not by “pen and phone” I dare say. Nor executive order. I applaud any American standing up against any malfeasance in office, corruption, law taking. Just, exactly, who IS YOUR group? I will come by Friday.

Whoever is in attendance will welcome you and be very interested in what you have to say. Guests are treated respectfully but are expected to answer questions. Most attendees are interested citizens in the world around them from GJ concerns to global issues.It is not an activist group but just a discussion group where people come to discuss with issues that are brought up with civility.We start at 9AM in the large conference room at Main Street Bagels. Most start arriving at about 8:45 and we usually overflow beyond spaces at the conference table into chairs around the periphery. Can I announce to my e-mail list that you will be in attendance? Are you still the president of one of the groups? what is the current name, Results GJ ?

You surely have me confused with someone else. I am a disabled veteran. You may meet me Mon-Thurs, 0900-1200, on the second floor of the VA Hospital. I assist fellow veterans there. “Results GJ” you asked. I haven’t a clue. Nor have I been a president of anything since I retired from the military in 1992. Nor was I president while on active duty. I am an American fighting man. I believe in my country and its constitution. I believe no man is above the law. I support the carrying of firearms. I am a Christian. I do not support abortions. I support Hobby Lobby. They are privately owned and already insure 6-8 different contraceptives for employees. They only object to contraceptives which are KNOWN to cause abortions. I believe our government needs repair in many areas. I gather facts from approx. 100 tv stations and at least 40 radio stations. 5 newspapers. I am an informed voter. I believe we should secure our borders. I do not believe that husseincare is viable. I believe one should prove citizenship in order to vote. I believe OJ killed Nicole and Ron. I believe my government is concealing many facts relating to Benghazi, Fast and Furious, IRS targeting, NSA, husseincare and birth certificates. Lest I mention homeland security. On active duty I learned that it is indeed unlawful to execute an order that is obviously a violation (Geneva Convention). I believe that citizens have a duty to disregard any official that is knowingly violating our constitution or law(s). I would like to see rank voting become our voting system. Confirm my attendance at your gathering at your leisure. Fact is I really do not think I care for you. Your last statement to me leads me to believe that you are indeed something that you are not. Something along the lines of bleeding heart, democrap, progressive, liberal. I really do not know why I bothered writing this to you as I post here regularly and I’ve not observed you here previously. Most of all I believe that recycling politicians from office to office has led to the majority of our county, state and national problems. In other words the “good ‘ol boy syndrome.”

Mr.Sanders, you are correct, I had a dialog going on with Tim Fenwick And I thought, reflexively, that I was responding to Tim. You have my apology. On the other hand, I take offense at the way you express yourself. Husseincare? With that one little statement you have lost all credibility that you should be taken seriously. And generally waving the flag is not an expression of belief, also a sign of insincerity. However, even though the invitation was meant for someone else you are welcome as well if you choose to come on any Friday morning. But be prepared to not only say what you believe but explain why, particularly as it relates to ALL citizens.

Flag waving is NOT an expression of belief? Expression of insincerity? Lost all credibility because I used “husseincare.” Quite frankly I really do not give a damned about what you think of me. I earned my right to free speech as well as flag waving. Who are you to dictate wasted space? To lecture someone? Just another wasted kool aid liberal progressive. You seem quite comfortable at exercising your right? By the by I usually use barry lyinkenyan hussein soetoro. Pack that in your pipe. I really do not expect you to grasp this but kilo mike alpha sir. I consider your invitation an absolute insult and your diatribe ridiculous. Take the high ground. I will damned sure wave the flag at any time of my choosing. Of course you self appointed elitists know squat about having a guidon, unit pride and serving for you ungrateful elitists. Indeed.
