The Wall Street Journal had in its opinion pages months ago, a well-documented article questioning the sanity of Bush-haters, which appears to include Hal Sundin as a Bush-hater, judging by his article of 11-20-09.

The Glenwood Springs Post Independent newspaper appears to me to be uniquely balanced like the Wall Street Journal. The GSPI is pro-liberal (socialism), and the Journal is pro-capitalism. Both report news accurately, and both have a wide range of right and left opinions.

Garfield County went Republican presidentially and locally for grassroot county commissioners. But statewide, Colorado still has politicians who foolishly believe they know more than industries that were functioning productively, long before the politicians were born, as hard Americans. According to Michael Barone, such politicians are soft Americans who live off the productivity, creativity and competence of hard America.

It’s Christmastime, and time for making that list and checking it twice. This year’s list should be a list of what stores in town you would like to see remain in business; and what gift, large or small, you can purchase from them. A shopping trip to Grand Junction should be unthinkable.

Downtown, we have wonderful book, clothing and kitchen accessory stores, a hometown alternative to Target.

Where would we be without fun camping stuff, fun clothing stuff and a whole bunch of gas masks? What if we had to go to Junction for a pair of shoes or skis or underwear?

Spending our money within the community is becoming very serious business. The Glenwood Springs Area Chamber of Commerce should spend some of its dollars to bring this home (pun intended).

Support your neighbor, not to mention your tax base.
