You Said It, Feb. 17, 2013

The governor sipping cherry-picked fracking fluid was a media-staged joke. It’s like a college disciplinary dean asking a men’s fraternity to bring in their choice of just one of the many different punches they served at their rowdy house party last month.

Thank you to the gentleman who paid for my submarine sandwich on Valentine’s Day. Was it because I was wearing my Valentine vest or because I was old? Anyway, I will forward goodness to others because of you.


The reason the chamber uses an out-of-town travel agency is because they give free trips to the chamber staff. The same with the trips the schools put together. Kind of a no-brainier if you are the organizing person and you travel for free.


I’ts funny how important federal law is to local law enforcement, the DA and county commissioners when it comes to marijuana, but not so important when it comes to sensible gun control.


Rose Pugliese’s gun resolution: She states that it is the county commissioners’ way of supporting the constituents who feel the same. No. It’s to put forth their personal beliefs. What about someone like me who does not believe this? Who is representing me?


Now that the commissioners have enjoyed their chest thumping and high-fives over their Second Amendment proclamation to an adoring, camo-outfitted crowd, why stop their popularity run now? Best to add a standing agenda item that includes more pressing proclamations found dear to a select constituency such as Monster Truck Day, Hug-a-Pit- Bull Day and Making Roadkill Reclamation Legal for Stovetop Fixins’.


Why has the dismissal of Chantal Unfug, who worked for Mesa County for only 18 months, drawn so much attention from The Daily Sentinel? Colorado is an at-will state, which means dismissals don’t have to be explained.


To the writer who complained that buying meals for others should instead be reserved only for the homeless or soup kitchen: Who do you think you are to judge what kindness and charity free citizens decide to do with their own money? Are only the homeless worthy of a thoughtful deed and are they owed this by everyone?

Kudos to the Sentinel for your Tuesday editorial. I support screening for mental health issues. How about starting with Ted Nugent, a flaming narcissistic anti-social personality disorder.


A huge thank you to the motorcycle gentleman who saw me leave my purse in the cart when I put it in the cart rack at Sam’s Club on Feb 2. He got my attention and returned it to me. God bless you.


I agree with the person who found a high school graduate who knew nothing about U.S. history. What he needs to do as a parent is kick him out of the basement and package up his video games and stack of comic books for curbside recycling.


I was shopping in Natural Grocers and having a hard time finding items on the shelves. A young women, whom I assumed was an employee, strolled by. I asked her for help. She found the items. I asked for additional help and she smiled and said, “I don’t work here.” Amazing. Thanks, Rachel, for you kindness and wonderful disposition.


After reading about the tragic deaths and beatings of three children the last couple months, it was heartwarming to read about Sharaya Selsor and her unconditional love for her young daughter. She has her priorities correct and is an inspiration to lots of young mothers. I wish her nothing but the best in what I am sure will be a good future. She has her head on straight. We all need more stories like this.


The three liberals who dominate You Said It every Sunday need to take a vacation and reset their sound-alike group think. But the snide comment about the gunning down of legendary SEAL Chris Kyle by a loser nut job was unforgivably ignorant and hateful.


I like my Daily Sentinel

It gets delivered every day

I hate it when some walker

Steals it on their way

I’m sorry they can’t afford one

So a mere five minutes allowed

Read it, say thanks and put it back

In my box ...

And I won’t tell the Sheriff, out loud.

Bashing Ted Nugent and mental health screening of all gun permit applicants is just another example of the leftist wingnut “Take your gun” socialist / social engineering and profiling tactics.

The socialist “perfect utopia” idealism will never happen. Unfortunately, there will always be evil apples that make the good stable gun owner look bad.

There always has been from “Billy the Kid” to the monster of Sandy Hook. You will never be able to control it 100% no matter what regulations you enact.
