Wow, so much for loving your neighbor up in Winnetka. I'm in affordable housing here in Aspen where your local residents, our "fuedal overlords" in Aspen, are generating more laughs in the recent article " Skico CEO: Former ski instructor is a public figure"

"They are protesting corruption and the lack of real freedom and true democracy. Because Russia, like most of the world, has not quite totally arrived at the end of history."-Time, Person of the Year


"Just returned from art class @SAIC.[School of the Art Institute of Chicago]. Had birthday breakfast this morning with girl pals dressed as Barbie. Check out aspen ideas festival...."-tweet, Skico/General Dynamics/JP Morgan Chase owner Paula Crown. Her Aspen Skiing CEO:

"Watch out, I'm blogging now. How's your Aspen?@ heidizj: Good move, Heidi."-AspenSnowCEO

Dear CEO Mike,

Despite our differences, we both love teaching skiing & our community. Although I have to ROFL when local earls & countesses line up to pay $10,000.00 to meet barefoot Michelle Obama at the castle General Dynamics built four blocks from my public "affordable housing" house.

Rome in the 4th Quarter or Versailles?

These days our politicians are just blowhards; whereas, our Revolutionary forefathers deeply respected a good fight: Vice President Burr fatally wounded former Secretary of Treasury Hamilton in a High Noon dueling shootout.

Taking inspiration from the current Roger Marolt/Aspen Times and Lo Semple/Aspen Daily News ski-OFF: Why not a Mulcahy/Kaplan Wild West flip-OFF at the base of Aspen? Cheerleaders?---would Heidi & Paula bring pom-poms and go all Dallas Cowboys for you?

It’ll be hilarious: CEO vs. peon.

BIG $$$ vs. white trash.

Chicago North Shore vs. Fort Worth, Texas.

Audi driving Master of the Skico Universe vs. pick-up driving banned Skico whistleblower.

Aspen Institute green “limousine liberal” vs.“Don’t tread on me” NRA/Tea Party occupier.

Castle Creek free market DU MBA vs. Burlingame public housing unionizer Sorbonne-attending PhD.

Skier vs. snowboarder.
Darth Vader vs. Luke Skywalker.
Elite 1% vs. 99%.

Or a moguls contest on AH’s Scarlett’s instead of all this legal stuff? Man to man. It would be so in line with Aspen's history. But if I win, Skico has to pay more than $9.25/hr. u call a “living wage” here & I get my job back. Full disclosure: I was freestyle aerial certified. But I'll even flip on a snowboard and u can use those skis Roger Marolt pokes fun of u about.

And that's the paradox of the public space, everyone may kind of know something unpleasant, but once someone says it, it changes everything.

Therefore, I cannot resist:

Paula Crown, PhD candidate at the Art Institute of Chicago, is on President Obama's arts council; Michelle Obama skis at Paula’s palace; General Dynamics, a merchant of death, and Wall Street's JP Morgan Chase are prosperous.

What was the name of that Dan Sheridan song Skico has banned?“Big $”?

28th amendment to get the big $$$ out of politics already?

So back to skiing, AspenSnowCEO, are you in?

Please go to facebook and sign the petition:

Dear Paula and James Crown, Drop the ban. This is still America: It's freedom of speech. Thanks,_________ American.

Affordable housing isn't anything more than crime placement. Obama will make sure that the culture of African Americans his party single handedly destroyed almost forty years ago will destroy your nice, quiet towns. It's not a black thing it's a thug thing. I pay over thirty grand in property taxes and now since last year with section 8 housing in our community my cars been robbed twice, I've got sound systems in cars up and down block with ghetto thugs driving around endlessly, went to my gas station and now it's full of orange crush and flaming hot Cheetos and blunts. Obama loving ghetto trash...
