If you go to a public meeting in Longmont and see uniformed officers who are not part of a presentation, check to see if Councilman McCoy is present. These are his cops. He calls them ostensibly to keep the peace, but they are really his body guards. If there’s an issue on any agenda that Mr. McCoy believes will draw a crowd, the cops will be there in force. Citizens with objections or discussion points = Fringe Element.
Jim Davis makes a point with his spokesman Garfield.
Spotted something interesting by the mayor’s wife in the Times-Call comments.
Check it out at Whiskey Tango Foxtrot – the place for all of Longmont’s ‘WTF’ moments.
From the Daily Camera Letters online:
Fair and balanced?
My wife and I watched 60 Minutes with interest last Sunday to discover that Sarah Palin had to ask Joe Biden if she could call him Joe at the vice-presidential debates so she wouldn’t make the mistake of confusing his last name with Obama’s. She ended up calling him O’Biden anyway.
However strange that was, your story in Monday’s paper topped it. Fox News hired Sarah Palin as a political commentator and analyst. Her response? “It’s wonderful to be part of a place that so values fair and balanced news.” Fox News fair and balanced? Now that’s an oxymoron.
And Sarah Palin as a Fox political analyst? That’s even better, my wife said. That`s a Foxymoron!
One of the anonymously insane commenters at the TC blurted this out:
mfrede, sorry that you don’t get it. We have to rescue progress from the so-called progressives. We need a liberal, not a libertarian, social order with deeper values than material advances. Your idea all pre-existing traditions or values are by definition just so much unprogressive baggage is as philistine as it is laughable. Pseudo progressives pose danger of fanaticism, authoritarianism, abuse of power, exploitation or abuse of the old and the young, corruption, rigged elections and harm to minorities. In our confused discourse, some people who embody these very threats have disguised themselves as liberals. Their deep intolerance and intimidatory techniques in pursuit of license and power must be resisted in the interests of preserving a decent, fair and free society. That is why I am a progressive.

This is so twisted up logically it hurts to read.
The person behind this pseudonym should really seek psychiatric help immediately… obvious loss of connection to reality.
I mean, this person is so spooky they should be required to wear a yellow shirt with thick black diagonal stripes at all types to indicate ‘hazard’.
Anyone this mentally disrupted shouldn’t be allowed to drive.
