Memo to Boyer

Memo to Boyer (editor of our local rag):

If your so-called newspaper (and your so-called “profession”) was more competent, more honest, more balanced, more trustworthy and showed more integrity, maybe more people would be more willing to talk to you.

Hmm, just a thought. But, by all means, you keep on looking anywhere but in the mirror.

Boyer Does Not Get it and Never Will

Brent Boyer, the editor of our local rag, does not get it and never will.

In his latest failed attempt to defend against the obvious bias of his paper, Boyer once again trots out the utterly irrelevant fact that he publishes commentaries from both sides. WHO CARES?

Earth to Boyer! It ain’t about the commentary page! It’s about what you purport to be “straight news”. Like virtually all of the propaganda that passes for journalism today, your “straight news” is loaded with Far Left opinion and flatly untrue Far Left propaganda.

This is never more obvious than when you “report” on Socialist Housing.

It was quite obvious in your “reporting” on the Pine Beetle Infestation.

You did it with respect to the economy (more than once). Even if the NBER later declares the economy was in recession at the time of that story, what your “reporter” did will have STILL amounted to the stealth embedding of OPINION inside “straight news” (and that is NEVER acceptable)!

Click here and read what one of your own has to say on the subject of embedding opinion within “straight news”.

Click here and here and read the TRUTH from two of the last honest “journalists” left on the freaking planet!

Nationally, the overt bias in this election cycle was SO over the top that even SNL and Dan Rather could no longer deny it!

P.S.) Brent, it is also about your having driven --- I believe deliberately --- virtually all Conservative commentators from your Reader Forum. Hey! Brent! How’s your click rate lately? Down 50%? Or is it more than that?

Central Planning Never Works

Didn’t anybody ever tell our local idiots that Central Planning (be it housing or any other market) NEVER WORKS?

Have these idiots learned NOTHING from the current housing debacle?

The Marxist agenda of the Democrats made housing beyond one’s means the next frontier in their never ending Entitlement fantasy. Nationwide, that fantasy blew up in OUR face and dragged down the entire global economy.

And now WE get to pay the piper (through yet another Marxist “solution”). And, yes, this time a Republican President (who is NOT a Conservative) saddled us with this particular Nanny State stupidity.

These idiots NEVER LEARN! Whether we’re talking about the failure of Soviet Central Planning or the 100 million people who were murdered for the cause, these idiots ALWAYS remain convinced that the ideology (Marxism) is good and only the most recent implementation was bad. The worst part is that most of them seem oblivious to the FACT that they are pursuing a blatantly Marxist agenda. After two or more generations of Marxist indoctrination in our Socialist “education” system, they simply believe they are doing “good”.

When government bureaucrats craft “solutions”, they ALWAYS make matters worse! And, they are ALWAYS too ignorant and too arrogant to see the truth of their folly!

Here we go again!

Are we Still Funding the YVHA?

Quoting SP&T:

“The Steamboat Springs City Council reluctantly voted Tuesday night to raise water and sewer rates by 50 percent next year.”
If ANYBODY on the City Council would like to be reelected, they had better make sure they ELIMINATE funding for the Yampa Valley [totalitarian Socialist] Housing Authority!

The last we heard:
“The two governments [city and county] plan to contribute $80,000 apiece [to YVHA] in 2009.”
We’re watching! We’ve thrown the bums out before and we will DAMN SURE do it again!

The Importance of Being (Earnestly) Ken Brenner

With apologies to Oscar Wilde

Quoting Ken Brenner (via SP&T) on losing his home county:

“you assume people know who you are, and they don’t”
Actually, Ken, the reason you lost your home county is because we DO know who you are (perhaps better than you do). Wake up and smell the coffee! We’ve been telling you that you would lose your home county ever since you announced.

Did you really think we would forget your tyrannical reign so quickly? Did you think you could impose your Socialist Housing agenda on us without consequence? Just because SP&T was totally in the tank for you and your Socialist agenda does not mean the rest of us were.

Forget about politics! Go back to being a masseuse!
