Stop the left before it’s too late

Dear Editor:

Very seldom do I hear veterans speak up in our local media. I don’t mean combat veterans like Col. Merritt and others who speak at and conduct memorial services and other community events here in the valley. God knows and we know that our men and women combat veterans have paid the price through their actions and their pain. I am talking about us non-combat veterans. I don’t, nor should you, consider our mission accomplished. Remember, we took an oath to defend the Constitution.

However, no longer should arms be considered, but leadership, communication and actions to get this country back to the Constitution as intended by our founders. We are being pushed, not led, because there is nothing resembling leadership in this administration. We are being pushed into socialism and the loss of our liberty and freedom and that of our children and grandchildren.

It does not matter if you are a Democrat, Republican, Independent, Constitutionalist or whatever suits you, be heard and speak out! Speak out too if you think that the Obama administration is right for the United States! If you watched the One Nation rally on Oct. 2 attended by organized Communists/Unions/Socialists, you must realize that this great country is rapidly bleeding to death and it’s time to start leading and empowering others before the November election!

It is no longer enough to march in the Fourth of July parades oblivious to the Marxist system being forced down our throats by this administration so disdainful of the pleas of our citizens. Communicate through e-mail, face mail, letters to the editors or anyway you can think of to lead people out of the socialist muck being shoved at us!

Help more Americans to understand that ignorance and apathy have been rampant in this country and alas, in our own valley for at least four decades and that on other than local issues, 95 percent of the media is biased and leaning left! There is recent evidence to suggest that this is turning around, pray it so, time is short!

State issues Vail Resorts a notice of violation for 2021 fish kill

Vail Resorts has received notice of violation and a cease and desist order in the wake of a spill, which qualifies as a “discharge of pollutants,” last year from part of the Vail Mountain snowmaking system that ultimately resulted in a fish kill in Gore Creek.
