Wisdom from the Web

Compiled by Daily staff

On the Vail Daily Web site, you can comment on each story or editorial you read there.Here, we publish excerpts of those comments:Re: TipslineOur Tipsline caller complains about positive press coverage for a women’s only skiing event in which clinics, wine and cheese and VSS discounts are featured.If a men’s event were scheduled and covered, there would be cries of gender bias and news stories would have a negative slant, says our commentator. It’s just another example of local hypocrisy.Dude, I feel your pain, especially as thousands of years of male-preferential treatment get reversed with a few gear discounts and free drinks for females. So unfair. It’s tough being a man these days.I have a two-for-one bar coupon and a 40 percent discount offer I’ll sport you from a local ski shop. Will that make you feel better?Re: If you want to help families …Thank you. How refreshing to read something intelligent and sensible. The people in your community our fortunate you will publish an opinion such as this. Here in Colorado Springs, we only get what the pod people allow us to see. Somwhere along the way, Christ got pushed out of Christianity, and hate took over.Re: Of pride, guts and skeletonsYou are doing a great job coveriing the Olympics, Shauna. Keep it up.Re: Wisdom from the WebHi back, “This is the foreman from the valley. …”I appreciate the hard work of Hispanics, but you did not answer my questions. Do you carry workers comp on your employees of the illegal sort, and do you verify they have their own valid insurance before letting them on hazardous job sites? Or if they get hurt, do we taxpayers pay for them – a standard practice for illegal employers?Are you aware this is a felony for you to write here? That your company can be seized when you are identified and arrested? That if wages are suppressed becuase of illegal alien cash hiring practices – lawsuits are now being paid out in the millions under RICO to all employees with wage drops?Check out http://www.wehirealiens.com. Are you listed there with Vail Resorts, Gould Construction, Gallegos and a few more? Look up the state of Colorado here: http://www.wehirealiens.com/Browse.aspRe: Crossing guard held on criminal chargesI don’t know if the “freedom of pres”‘ or whatever allows the press to publish this kind of article. However, I do have to comment on the fact that this claimed to not be a racial issue. Than what kind of issue is this? In what way was this person a danger to the community? Her only mistake was working with a number that didn’t belong to her. But in the long run I can assure you she wasn’t aware of who it did belong to. If the press is going to go ahead and publish articles about the immigrant residents of this community, it should first go ahead and find the complete story.Vail, Colorado
