You Said It, June 5, 2016

What’s worse, a Delta County Republican Party official posting a rather racist meme on Facebook, or then trying to blame said posting on a phantom hacker after already admitting having posted earlier in the week? That’s some real primate logic.

Why would anyone want to hack into the Facebook page of Linda Sorenson, chairwoman of the Delta County Republican Party, and post a very demeaning and racist photo of President Obama? Her central committee members say it was to embarrass the Delta County Republican Party. The Delta County Republican Party does not need a racist meme posted on Facebook to make them look bad. They do a fine job all on their own.

 

After seeing the offensive anti-Obama cartoon on the front page, the people on the Western Slope should not be surprised that a forward-thinking, diverse new company would shy away from a town of racist, bigoted hillbillies.

 

Talk about racists. Never thought The Daily Sentinel would stoop so low as to publish a picture of President Reagan bottle feeding a chimp, supposedly our President Obama. Even if it were posted on Facebook, the picture could have been omitted.

 

Your editorial justification for the Ronald Reagan monkey picture was articulate, well thought out and rational, but you’re wrong. The picture was inappropriate. Come on, people, you’re better than that.

 

Whoever is responsible for the maintenance of the Colorado state flag on the top of the cellphone tower in the Home Depot parking lot, please order a new state flag. It’s an absolute embarrassment and disgrace seeing that tattered and torn flag flopping in the breeze.

 

To the people who stopped to help me on D 1/2 & 30 roads when my mini dachshund was being attacked by two pit bulls: You have no idea how much your help meant to me. I was in shock and concerned about my dog and I hope I told you thank you. I wish I could say it in person but I failed to get your names. Noah is going to be OK. He had to get several stitches on the four holes in his back, but he will be fine. Thanks again for your help to a stranger. I hope you’re rewarded somehow. God bless.

 

What other private business interests in the Grand Valley get $20,000 plus per day to run their operations? Mesa County and the city of Grand Junction have taken extraordinary steps to support a three-day mountain bike race by giving it a direct government handout, which is above and beyond any assistance given to local businesses, and what is the thanks the organizers give to the leaders and residents of the area? They want more handouts!

 

I think that the welcome sign at the county lines needs to be updated. Instead of “Monuments, Mesas and Memories,” it needs to say Monuments, Mesas and Meth.”

 

A Redlands resident burns yard waste in plastic swimming pool. Clever.

 

Thank you to the pickleball player who found my Mickey Mouse sweatshirt and hooked it on the fence for me to find. It is nice to know there are honest folk in Grand Junction.

 

A thought for all those folks fighting the punk tagger that’s defacing their new pedestrian bridge on Broadway. Go dig up four or five of the biggest cactus plants you can find and plant them at the base of the wall. They will flourish there and will bloom nicely. No punk so-called artist will want to stand in cactus to practice their art.

 

I find it quite ironic that the JUCO committee “disinvited” banquet speaker Curt Schilling due to his non-PC Facebook posting, yet chose Ludacris and Eminem for the video highlights soundtrack. Have they never heard their lyrics? Talk about non-PC! They make Mr. Schilling sound like a choirboy.

 

Traveling along I-70 this Memorial Day, there was a group of horseback riders sitting on top of a hill respectfully displaying the American flag. It was unexpected but a wonderful sight. Thank you for such a display.

 

It’s really a shame no one is watering the trees that were recently planted in the Ridges. They are bone dry.

 

We would like to tell people on Grand Mesa above Collbran to slow down when you pass a campsite so we don’t have to eat your dust. A little common courtesy goes a long way.

 

I would like to thank the Grand Mesa Jeep Club for a wonderful event, Rock Junction. These folks work very hard to keep trails open for public use and sponsor this yearly event and expo. I don’t think they get the thanks they deserve for all they do for the area. You see lots about the bike events but almost nothing about the “Jeep people.” There were trips available for the novice Jeeper as well as some really extreme challenges. I know everyone had the best time ever and look forward to next year. Thank you again, GMJC.
