You Said It, April 7, 2013

I hear someone is working on a kit to convert newly illegal Colorado gun magazines into a bong. We can call it a HickenHookah.

In the wake of the poorly-thought-out anti-gun laws passed in Colorado, recreational shooting competitions are canceling events in Colorado, law abiding hunters are canceling vacations to Colorado, and firearm manufacturing businesses are leaving Colorado. The only ones not leaving Colorado are armed criminals since they don’t give a hoot about the new laws.


I am glad to see that our Sheriff Hilkey fully understood the oath he swore to uphold our Constitution. Obviously our state and federal government officials do not.


When did the Republican Party change from the law and order party of Ronald Reagan to a party that promotes disobeying any law they feel restricts their personal freedom? Was it Reagan who said something like “you cannot break a law for your own personal freedom”?


Thanks to the lady in the bright T-shirt who came to my defense last Saturday at the Palisade dog park against the bully with the loud mouth. I was so shook up I did not think to thank you then. You are a woman of courage.


Based on the county’s rationale that a microwave cell tower hidden within a church belfry doesn’t warrant public review, I could see churches going all out to encourage revenue. Just install a stripper pole inside the belfry and watch the pews fill with brimming baskets.


I would like to thank the Grand Junction Tigers for a good job they did this basketball season. My husband and I have traveled 80 miles to watch our grandson play since he was in seventh grade. You all did a good job. Good luck next year. We will be there to cheer you on.


Thank you to the person at Applebee’s for giving my favorite orange coin purse that I left at the table to management. You are truly an honest person. Also, kudos to the parents with six children having dinner close to our table. I have never seen such well-behaved children. It was a pleasure to dine and admire your family.


Attention gum-chewing coworkers and employees everywhere: Please consider those around you and enjoy your gum in private if you are a person who enjoys gum loudly. Some of us think it very rude and childish to pop your gum in the presence of others. Thank you in advance for your manners.


On March 21 we were getting ready for inventory at our business and had a big lightning strike. All the power went out. We called Xcel energy and they got to the shop right away. It was great the way they took care of the problem for us in a timely manner.


Shame on you to the parents standing on the corner of Rimrock Walmart on Sunday using your 9-year-old son to help hold your sign asking for handouts while your younger daughter played and husband looked on. You would teach your kids so much more by setting the example of looking for work and asking for job applications when the going gets tough than standing on the street corner asking people for handouts.


To the person who found my purse on 28 Road Thursday: You can keep the money, but please return my mother’s driver’s license to the Sentinel office; it is the only keepsake I have of her.


Who is Glen Gallegos and why is his political sign still posted on the straw barricade around the Grand Junction Raceway? Election was in November. Take it down.


Giving anonymously to an individual may feel good to the giver, but for the recipient it can be a problem. Not knowing who the generous giver is causes the recipient to wonder with every friend or acquaintance if he or she is the one. That the recipient needs someone to thank is just as real as the giver’s need to be anonymous.
