yeah, its time I stopped trying to argue with a child that doesn't really know much,

I mentioned your appearance just so you might realize the damage you seem to be doing to yourself. if you don't like that, get hold of the newspaper and have them remove your photos from "public" view. I'm sure you thought it was pretty cool when they put it there, your 15 minutes of fame, huh ?

so lets end this with some advice from someone "very very old, and very very wise". while you are still smarter than your elders, join the military. do 20 years, then join your local police dept. do another 20 years, then you will have fought for the country that allows you to act like a child, you will have protected your community. then you will realize there are more important issues in life than if you can "construct a sentence" (said like a real child) go out and get some "real" life experience, pay your dues, do some good in your life instead of trying to legalize drugs. i'll bet you even voted for king Obama ! hows that working for you ?

like all people that go to bat for whats wrong with America, you will someday regret it and change your tune. or like so many of my generation, after a quadrupal bypass brought on by constant drug use, you will drop dead. what a waste of moffat county high schools time.

I lived through the 60's, I fought in viet nam, I served my community, I saw what drugs can do. but that's the difference between the truth and a lie.

hope you do well

shaun, shaun, shaun,

trying to have an exchange of information with you is like arguing with a child who ain't getting his way. when your point isn't being made (because it isn't valid), you revert to correcting my English. is that all you really have?

you are a very young person with little to no life experience, something tells me you have never held a legitimate job, (a head shop isn't a legitimate job) you are trying to argue a point that you will never win. people with children will never agree to legalize any drug, for fear their children will mess with it.

ask the people who work on oil rigs and the like what they think of drugs, and how they feel about all the on the job injuries caused by them.

ask any hardcore drug user, they will all tell you they started with pot.

research for real what problems drugs have caused law enforcement. but you won't, all you want to do is stand in your room and hold your breath till you turn blue, I don't think your dad beat you enough when you were a child. (which wasn't very long ago) go get some life experience shaun, then come back and set yourself up in the expert business. until then you have no case, you have no life experience to use as ammo in a intelligent conversation. I am obviously wasting my time trying to make a point with a child.

really, I think you need a time out.

that's it for me pal.

well, that's just about a book load of information I don't need.

shaun, have you googled yourself ? if you do you will find several photos of yourself, one when you were young looking, a pretty nice looking guy, just starting in the "apothecary" business. another pretty recent, oh my ! if that's what pot will do to you, we need to outlaw it forever. no offence meant, but you have really aged in just a few years, too bad what drugs do to folks. you probably need to try and get those photos off the net if you are going to try to legalize any drug. again, no offence meant, but what a difference.

and it looks like your not going to get your "vote" too bad, I think you would really be surprised at the outcome, but then your not interested in the outcome, only the income, right ?

hmm, would that be 35 pound bales, wire tied ? or one ton round bales ?

boy, can you imagine the hundreds of trespassing calls the sheriff will have to handle once the potheads discover where the pot pastures are.

will this mean really stoned elk and deer ? nothing more dangerous that a bull elk with the munchies, or a sage hen flying backwards.


dennis collins 1 week, 3 days ago on Moffat County's lodging industry suffers during 1st quarter of 2014

no offense to the motel business, but when people we know come to craig for "events" they stay the day and drive home. we asked why and the answer is always the same. nothing really here to see so its not a destination town, and the big answer "do you know what they want to use their bed for the night"

unless western colo. stops depending on the energy business for every dollar it makes it will always experience the boom - bust cycle. it has since I was born, and still does. when I was a kid the town had enough jobs for everyone, small, friendly, close knit community. why everyone wants it to grow like grand jct. will forever be a mystery to me. if you want a bigger more successful town, move to one. it gets really cold here in the winter, I don't see a big influx of folks wanting to freeze things off to live here, we charge our tourists 25 cents a gallon more for gas, more for food, and an arm and leg for a room, sometimes I wonder how we feel we deserve a tourist trade. oh well hunting season will bail everyone out. hope we don't run low on elk.


dennis collins 3 weeks, 4 days ago on John Pogline: Say no to pot

name 3 ?

I will name 2 good ones for every bad you can name. you don't know me, you don't know anything about me, yet you are disgusted with me. shows your opinion is without any merit.


dennis collins 3 weeks, 4 days ago on John Pogline: Say no to pot

mark, your obvious dislike for the very men who make it possible for you to say and do what ever you see fit, makes you not even qualified to debate the subject. these are some of the most honest, giving human beings I have ever known. certainly there are cops you can't trust, but that's in all walks of life. instead of calling them names and lumping them all in the same twisted position, an attitude that you probably got when arrested at one time or the other, you should get never pass on the opportunity to thank them for their service, they are the ones out there in the snow and cold, in the middle of the night, responding to "even your" screams in the dark.

folks like you who are so quick to criticize police officers are most often the first to call when in danger. if you hate the police that bad, next time your life is on the line call the local pot shop for help.

I spent over 20 years serving the public, I doubt you have spent 20 minutes serving anyone, but I suppose that 20 minutes is enough to make you an expert on the subject. just don't try to convince other people of it, they don't buy it. but if you care to cite your vast experience with law enforcement, we are waiting with baited breath to hear it ---please ???


dennis collins 3 weeks, 6 days ago on John Pogline: Say no to pot


you didn't answer my question

I collect a retirement check from both the military and law enforcement, but I'm sure you in your lifetime of pot use know better than me. how old are you ? I lived through the 60's I saw the aftermath of a patrol wiped out in viet nam because the guy who was supposed to be on watch got stoned and fell asleep. I never once interviewed a hard core drug user who didn't tell me he started on pot, I cleaned the remains of a child off a dash board of a car because a 19 year old got stoned and took off in his dads truck and hit another car head on. so don't ever try to convince me or anyone who spent there life like I did that drugs or alcohol are good for us. sit down and talk to Tim Jantz, or any other member of law enforcement in craig, or any other town in America, like I said walk a mile in their shoes before you tell us were all full of crap.

just like the pit bull owner who tells everyone how sweet his dog is, till it attacks some child.

arguing with you is just arguing with the dog owner. i'll wait to see what the craig residents decide, they are the ones who will ultimately decide the issue. craig residents have a reputation for being an intelligent well informed bunch, bet they don't approve it any time soon my friend.


dennis collins 3 weeks, 6 days ago on John Pogline: Say no to pot

no I guess I don't realize that, I'm not a calif. resident, and certainly not a pothead, drug user, or a drinker. after 20 years of having been a first responder to calls involving drugs and alcohol you couldn't get me to use that junk if you tied me down. shaun, everyone in town knows its all about the money with you guys. if you had a fertilizer factory and the voters didn't want the smell in town, you would be jumping up and down saying no one knows the truth but you. I see we are going to vote on it, will you respect accept what the voters say and knock it off ? OR will you start a newspaper campaign to "change the mindset" ? I think you will see that me and old john ain't the only ones in moffat county who don't want drugs legalized in craig. tell you what, if they vote to legalize it I will fold my tents and never look back at craig, are you willing to do the same if they don't ? and I'm a native who intends to spend my retirement in craig also. it ain't about money with me, just the desire to keep craig a nice place to live, maybe not "mellow dude".
