There is a great proven easy renewable energy source. Hydro electric. It can't be beat. It's the best ever. It's the cheapest ever. Next to coal, it's the only other thing that should be considered,

Patrick Germond 9 months ago on Lance Scranton: A lesson from the trial of George Zimmerman

Trayvon could have just talked instead of throwing punches. There's a Golden Rule of fighting the was violated by Trayvon that night. He was feeling a little froggy and thought he could take George And he was right as far as hand to hand fighting went. Trayvon was cleaning George's clock. However...the golden rule of fighting.....passed down through the decades is this. Don't start a fight, there is alway someone tougher than you. This is a tragedy all around. Especially with Trayvon. He got in over his head real fast. Chicago is full of these stories. Now the Feds want to get rid of "Stand Your Ground" laws. For what, criminal right of way laws? Ninety one percent of black murders are committed by other black people. George Zimmerman, white people, and the n word arent what's hurting the black community. Its the black community that's hurting and killing itself. It's the no fathers and husbands that's destroyed the black community. The children, daughters and mothers are shedding rivers of tears because their men won't make a stand. Any help, anyone can ever give by reaching out and sharing family and religious values with them is desperately needed. Don't let the walls the race baiters and Satan have built stop you. Reach out.

Patrick Germond 9 months ago on Craig to get renewable energy through solar panels

Oh this is rich. To funny. If I read that right. The field will be built here, but the owners and users will be people from Steamboat? And........ For $800 you save $45.... Per.....year. That means my $200+ power bill would cost me $53,300 to off set and be totally solar powered. The people advocating this have issues. The first of which is critical thinking. But I'm not going to pick on them. I'll just leave them with the southern phrase, "Bless Your Hearts".

Patrick Germond 9 months, 1 week ago on Craig City Council says 'no' to recreational marijuana

Well pot is not a victimless crime. It has adverse affects on society, that tax payers have to pay to fix and sort out. Same as alcohol. But........ This is America, not Afganistan. If people can manage their lives, without imposing their dysfunction on others then it should be allowed. If your high or drunk, no voting. No drinking and voting is already the law in most states. If you receive any government help, any, you shouldn't spend any money on any drugs or alcohol. It's insulting. And keep it out of sight and away from kids. And don't promote it. If a kid gets busted with it, the parents should have to quit too, go through a program, put on probation and tested. Given all that, it should be up to the person. If they can handle it, it's not my problem. It's their free agency they're throwing away, not mine. If they want to spend their whole life high and miss everything, like their kids growing up, that's their choice. I've watched that happen with a family member, and it breaks my heart. But...,.. It's their choice.

Patrick Germond 9 months, 1 week ago on City council to discuss recreational use of marijuana in Craig

Misterkindbuds is right in his gerneral statement. Colorado voters made it clear how they feel on this. We'll have to make public laws like we have with alcohol though. We'll have to decide how much the non pot smokers want to look at it and to what extent we want our children exposed to it. I for one however am split somewhat on the issue. I think it's bad for society, but I do believe in freedom. People have a right to do as they please, as long as they don't impose their decisions on others. In the Bible it's called free agency, and its given to each man, by God. So we the people, Colorado, and the Federel government need to tread lightly on the values we impose on others. I think on the issue of drugs or alcohol we should let the chips fall where they may. No welfare or public housing or health care to anyone who smokes anything or puts any drugs or alcohol in their body. If they can fuction on their own, then leave them alone because its not the tax payers business. And you watch, people that smoke anything, will soon be denied health care, because its everyone's business now. Plus, the government will dial back benifits where it can pretty soon to save money. It always does.
