Leadership in the White House

Leadership in the White House

In my own career in the military and a degree in personnel management, I have been able to observe people in positions of authority. I have been able to ascertain that there is a big difference between managers and leaders. I have observed many competent managers but real leaders are few and far between. Leaders engender trust and loyalty because in addition to managing, they take care of their people. A reading of the D-Day invasion and landing at Omaha beach will illustrate this point. ...

Of Republicans and Race Cards

Of Republicans and Race Cards

      Tomgram: Jeremiah Goulka, Playing the ID Card       Posted by Jeremiah Goulka at 6:30pm, October 14, 2012. It’s an election year for the record books -- or maybe Ripley’s Believe It or Not.  The Obama campaign has now raised close to $1 billion; “dark money” is pouring into the Republican camp and onto the airwaves; and it’s clear that earlier predictions of the first $2 billion presidential campaign are likely to fall short of the real figure.  Or if you ...

Investing in Progress

Investing in Progress

              By Josh Knauer As a software entrepreneur, I find it ironic to see people going online to rail against taxes and government spending. The Internet grew from government research financed by earlier generations of taxpayers. So did computers, GPS technology and many other technologies we take for granted today. The Global Positioning System (GPS) we access from our phones, computers and cars was developed and is still operated by the Department of ... Full Story

Overwrought Empire

Overwrought Empire

        The Discrediting of U.S. Military Power By Tom Engelhardt Americans lived in a “victory culture” for much of the twentieth century.  You could say that we experienced an almost 75-year stretch of triumphalism -- think of it as the real “American Century” -- from World War I to the end of the Cold War, with time off for a destructive stalemate in Korea and a defeat in Vietnam too shocking to absorb or shake off. When the Soviet Union disintegrated in 1991, ... Full Story

Support for Donnelly

Support for Donnelly

      To the editor   I am writing in support of Tom Donnelly who is running for re-election in District 3. The election is countywide so we all have the opportunity to vote for him. He has held several citizen meetings every month and listens to all concerns. He has led efforts to ensure Larimer County places a high priority on openness and accountability. I know Tom and can vouch he has worked long and hard hours to conserve our tax dollars and will continue to work for ... Full Story

Mitt’s Most Shameless Lie

Mitt’s Most Shameless Lie

      Mitt’s Most Shameless Lie By Gene Lyons People who lie a lot also tend to whine a lot, particularly when their prevarications are exposed. As a presidential candidate, Mitt Romney gives the impression of never having been in a fair fight. He’s remarkably thin-skinned for somebody in public life. Everybody expects politicians to embellish the truth, but Romney’s epic misrepresentations continue to astonish. Yet he appears flabbergasted that anybody’s allowed to talk ... Full Story

Just stop that … biosolid

Just stop that … biosolid

        By Scott Crossen September 24, 2012         “Nothing ever becomes real, ‘til it is experience.” John Keats Autumn is hiding beyond tomorrow. Once again, it’s that time of year when the countryside is the place to be – to take in the changing colors, relax and breathe good clean air. Unfortunately, it is also the time of year when some landowners choose to spread toxic sewage sludge across their acreage because it is a cheap alternative to ... Full Story

Romney Budget increases the deficit

Mitt doesn’t get it

   The REAL "Entitlement" Programs Benefit the Rich By Mike Kirchubel (about the author) opednews.com Social Security, Medicare, and Unemployment Insurance are not gifts from the wealthy to the workers of America. We pay our own way. The real "entitlement" programs are the ones we workers fund for the benefit of the rich.   Mitt Romney Does Not Have the Right to Dismiss Us       By Moby   Not to mention the roads, clean water, streetlights, police departments, fire ...
