American Airlines has filed Chapter 11, citing years of high fuel prices as among the most prominent reasons. AA sends a 737 and a 757 daily to YVRA during the season. It is communities like ours that will eat some of the first bullets fired from the left's punitive energy policies.
We don't rely on foreign oil because we don't have enough of our own. It is a reliance mandated by an intrusive government arbitrarily dictating which of our own resources we can and cannot extract. Colorado & Wyoming boast deposits which rival those of Saudi Arabia. Throw in the reserves beneath a rock quarry called ANWR, along with the offshore deposits, and we could easily meet our energy needs for the next century. Not to mention the job creation and economic growth that would result.
On the other hand, we could cave to the NIMBYs and continue to rely on hostile regimes for the energy we need. Prices go up and the economic hole gets even deeper.
Jet A is $7.38/gallon today at YVRA. Care to speculate what happens to our local economy when it climbs to $9, $10, or $11?
Drill, baby drill!
Here's Obama, ripping into W for having added $4 trillion to the national debt: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1kuTG1...
"It's irresponsible! It's unpatriotic!"
Of course, now that BHO has piled more than 3 times that amount onto the deficit; so that for the first time in history, government debt now exceeds GDP, he has nothing to say. Which begs the question: Was BHO lying then, or is he lying now? The answer is obvious: it's the punchline to the age-old joke - how do you know when so-and-so is lying? Easy: whenever his lips move. And that he is determined to put us on the same road to ruin alongside Greece, England, Italy, Portugal, Italy, & Spain, the joke's on us.
Worst. President. Of my lifetime.
I hope Mr. Bays is as tough as he looks. I have a cop friend who has had to transport prisoners to DOC facilities. He says that even he - an experienced, armed cop - is always uncomfortable venturing into those snake pits.
I was in radio, once upon a time. At one of my early small-market gigs, we did a weekly interview with the local school superintendent, as part of our public service obligation.
On one occasion, the supe was shilling for the district’s literacy initiative, and brought a parent with him. Her son had been having a hard time with his reading, and had benefitted from the school’s program. Though she was pleased, she remained frustrated at what a struggle it was.
I related a personal story: I too, had had a devil of a time learning to read. My parents bought some flash cards with basic words printed on them. Every morning, the cards were arrayed on the kitchen table, arranged in simple phrases. I was required to read them after breakfast. One of my parents was always there to help me sound it out, but I had to do the work. Their efforts were successful, and it was like water downhill thereafter.
I suggested to the mother that she might try something similar. She looked at me as though I had sprouted horns and a tail. “Do I look like a teacher? That’s the SCHOOL’S job!”
Which is just a long-winded way of saying that I couldn’t disagree more strongly with you and Hillary. It doesn’t take a village. It takes parents. Unfortunately, some who procreate really shouldn’t.
They did a terrific job of disseminating the info. Devoted an entire article to it. Oh, that's right – someone might not have seen it. So they should run it again. But what about the tens of thousands of people who will be visiting between now and Easter? I know – you should petition the Steamboat paper to run it every day on every page. That's the ticket. Because the great unwashed are illiterates who can't read the signs, and imbeciles unable understand the public address announcements at the airport.
Who cares? The signage at YVRA couldn't be more explicit. Recorded announcements are broadcast over the P.A. every 30 seconds. Anyone who doesn't get the message doesn't want to.
So: calling me "ridiculous" an "ignorant", and insisting that "argument" in a public forum should be "private" is something other than "rational and logical" and "immature." Thanks for clearing that up.
I, at least, am willing to stand behind every assertion I make with who I really am. Why aren't you?
And yet, here you are, doing exactly what you decry. Hypocrite much? That you are unable to grasp the concept of a public forum to such an extent that you believe its deliberations should be “private” is absolutely breathtaking. And a little pathetic.
I think it's ridiculous that someone is so sanctimonious to presume to dictate what others should discuss, and how they should go about it. Please indulge your self-righteous conceit on your own time.
