Log In My Eye, a Speck in yours

I find it appalling that our liberal lawmakers, not only have endorsed Civil Unions, but opened the doors to our public buildings, with public officials, after hours, in order to conduct civil ceremonies for the homosexual community. Would I, as a heterosexual man, along with the conservative community, be granted the same privilege? I think […]

“Skip” Carlson best qualified for House race

I have real concerns for our country, state, and the politics that affect us all. Loyalty to political parties trumps the message of the candidate and what they stand for in this day and age of media sound bites. I am a proud independent unaffiliated registered voter and as such can support members of both […]

Khruschev was right

I remember Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev’s promise, “We will bury you.”  As we look at America today we see how right he was. By far the most business illiterate group in America is college students – who arguably spend the majority of their time exposed to the mentality espoused by teachers unions.    The majority […]

The Greeley Tribune vs. The Greeley Gazette

 Journalism, as practiced by the Greeley Tribune, is often used as a vehicle to harass and defame Greeley citizens.  During Mayor Ed Clark’s term of office, the Tribune used the power of the poison pen to manipulate public opinion against Mayor Ed.  He ended up getting payback by tellingColorado, on more than one Denver TV […]

Protestors in search of a protest…Teachers join in

The campers calling themselves protestors against corporate greed and the unfair influence by businesses in politics around the world are having a wonderful time in New York this fall. Identified in the media as an ‘organization’ named Occupy Wall Street, the group is characterized as leaderless, frustrated and misguided students who refuse to accept fault they […]

SOLYNDRA SYNOPSIS

  The collapse of Solyndra goes far beyond the $535 million in government grants. It hits at the very heart of why our government has to be changed. Solyndra is a Republican and Democratic problem. Solyndra summarizes everything that must be corrected immediately in our government–the collusion, the deceit, the political kickbacks and party agendas […]

Liberals lying and suspicions

Color me suspicious:  A spooky Democrat operative posing as ‘campaign treasurer’ siphons lotsa cash from lotsa California Democrats just when Obama’s halo breaks, upsetting his Kool-Aid base.  It’s hard to fund ACORN when they’re outlaws, but not with mercenary bundler Kinde Durkee.  Organized crime wise guys ‘take a fall for the team’ to fund the […]

Ooops, I voted for the wrong school board candidate!!

By Brett Reese     — This commentary is mine as an individual and does not reflect the perspective of any business or organization I am associated with, including the D6 board of education.  While it’s clear to me that the city council candidates will pose no threat to the incumbents, the school board has four open seats […]

President to Boehner – security, really?

O The schedule for the Republican presidential debate has been set for months. So why would even the most avid Obama supporters believe that his selection of the same evening to ask for a joint session of congress for a speech was anything other than a clever attempt to upstage his opposition candidates? Because Jay […]

Presidential Candidates as Tea Party Darlings

by Dr. Michelle Bellini  — First, there was Senator Jim DeMint (South Carolina) – if he was not a darling, he was the “original.” Then, it was former Governor Sarah Palin (former Alaska Governor and VP Candidate). Next came former Senator Rick Santorum (South Carolina). Then, Representative Michele Bachman (Minessota). Now, it is Gov. Rick […]

America…asleep …. to death

In much of the Muslim world today, many people died. Most knew when they awoke that they might be killed in the name of freedom. Yet they walked into the streets near their homes and cried out in protest of a government that refused to give up power. They demanded freedom! Their calls for freedom […]

Vietnam Vet – personal observations of Gardner crowd

I am bitter today as I watch the return home of great Americans – in caskets. I have had the unforgettable honor of leading guys who truly believe freedom is worth everything a person can give. And so they gave. In the 60’s I stood proudly with fellow marines as we were pelted with tomatoes […]

The problem with men

 Natural man is virtuous simply because a strict moral discipline is necessary for survival, a lesson that modern man must learn. Also, natural man is a protector. His true desires are to love and show compassion. In addition, equality is the true status of all people, meaning that we all are of equal value. By […]

Congressman Gardner Welcomes All to Town Hall Meeting

  One trillion dollars is being taken away from Social Security funds and being given to big corporations. Why are you supporting this? That was the kind of comment that was shouted at Congressman Gardner during his town hall format meeting held this morning at the American Eagle Distributing conference room in Loveland. Nearly 40% […]

Greeley Gazette Opinion :

 The argument about President Obama’s birthright can no longer be settled. Any middle school kid with average computer skills can create a fake birth certificate. Frankly, I don’t think they even did as good a job as I would have. Local computer pro Stan Grant has actually listed the steps Obama’s team took to fabricate […]

De-Fund the Department of Education Before its Too Late

 I was doing background research for a completely different article when I happened to open the web site of the National Education Association. I was caught up reading one article after another. Suddenly I found myself writing this open letter about an email from Senator Bennet. The web site of the National Education Association is […]

Open letter to Sen. Michael Bennet

Mr. Bennet, Please permit an up/down vote on the Cut, Cap, and Balance plan that passed the House of Representatives. I would like to know where you stand on really doing something about the debt crisis that past and present Congresses and Administrations have created. In your op-ed, posted in the Denver Post on July […]

First in a series of Rants…..

This is the first in a planned series exploring why the global economic recovery continues to defy expert projections and remains on the path to collapse.   Last year I told friend I didn’t expect the U.S. economy would make it until Christmas without hitting the default wall and, on one of those windy, snow-filled […]

When does this Gay Rights insanity stop?

  A constitutional amendment to repeal Colorado’s gay marriage ban and replace it with language saying marriage is allowed regardless of sex could be on the 2012 ballot. Supporters argue that step 1 is for the state title board to review the language of the petitions. That should be step 2! Step 1 is for […]

Immigration Reform – Obama Style

  Get ready Greeley, another influx of immigrants is coming. June 30 marked the pull-out date for hundreds of National Guard troops that were deployed along the U.S. border with Mexico. They had been deployed to assist the seriously understaffed Border Patrol after much distracting news from the border regions. Pleas to Obama to continue assistance to […]

Dear American Taxpayer

For only the second time in my adult life, I am not ashamed of my country.  I want to thank the hard working American people for paying $242 thousand dollars for my vacation in Spain . My daughter Sasha, several long-time family friends, my personal staff and various guests had a wonderful time.  Honestly, you […]

Brett Reese: D6 is wasting million$ – Taxes not the answer

  In spite of numerous meetings with the public, my colleagues are continuing their fantastic proclivity to image and politics instead of education.  They have held meetings, collected input and then ignored it all for their own whims.  There does not exist on this board a single business owner who is making their living with that […]

Political Theatre in the House of Representatives

by Dr. Michelle Bellini Today the US House of Representatives voted down two bills related to the US military intervention in Libya. One bill was sponsored by Democrats to endorse the intervention, the other bill was sponsored by Republicans to strip funding for the operation. Both bills failed. Clearly, the House is ambivalent about this […]

Pastor Justin Davenport

In the past few months, I have been talking about following Jesus. Starting with “Are you a fan or a fol-lower?”, then “Follow me”, and last month was “What must I do?”. So, now what? Now comes the part that is really challenging. Let’s read in the Bible, Luke 9:57-62. These few scriptures really made […]

Greeley Trib serving our community?

By Brett Reese  –  (The Tribune has refused to print this editorial, or any editorial by Brett Reese, elected official) General Douglas MacArthur once stated, “I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within”.    If […]

Release of Obama’s birth certificate shows power of alternative media

It’s finally happened. After three years of Americans asking one simple question, he finally answered us.  “Where’s the birth certificate?” had been asked by millions of Americans. The request was for information that each member of the  public is asked to produce every day for various purposes. Following a USA Today poll, showing that only 38% […]

Doctors vs Guns: Which is more dangerous?

(C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171. Statistics courtesy of U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Now think about this: Guns (A) The number of gun […]

Things My Grandpa Taught Me: Work

By  Mike Bauman  – There are some things my grandpa taught me that seem to be missing from some of our kids’ education these days. Here’s what he said about work: 1)      Be on time.  If you’re going to take the job, make sure you’re there when you’re supposed to be. 2)      Don’t Gripe.  If […]

Brett Reese: “Why I do it”

  “I’m Brett Reese” “I know” It’s a little disconcerting to know that most people know who you are before you tell them. Tends to make you a little more polite to everyone you meet. My wife and I have 3 well-behaved girls.  We have some great employees and some good investments.  We could sit […]

Reese? Judge For Yourself

Guest Column By Sam Hill www.greeleyreport.com It’s so interesting to observe failing systems propping up other failing systems.  That’s why it came as no surprise when the ailing, failing Lib Trib came out with yet another whack and attack piece against District 6 School Board member Brett Reese, as though he is solely responsible for the […]

Gazette Urges Readers to Reserve Judgment on Accused Officer

By Mike Bauman The arrest last month of a Greeley Police Officer for sexual assault during a traffic stop has shocked the community.  However, many sources close to the department are still waiting for something… the proof.

Secular historians: Yeshua Chrestus died but…..

Brett Reese   – At this time of year it seems appropriate to describe the event in history that, at some point, forces each of us to make a decision. Easter is the holiday marked by a Christian claim that a man allegedly living in the first century was killed and actually came back to life. […]

Something over at city hall smells like fish. Rotting fish.

Matt Andrews  –  Greeley and Evans both have taxpayer money they are preparing to squander.  Whenever taxes are proposed to be raised, or needlessly spent, it should be a knee-jerk reaction of the community to examine the respective governing agencies.  Starting with the efficiency of their respective operations and moving to the top salary-getters.  Current […]

Effective Parenting
