Re: “Today is Taco Tuesday at Urban Steam

The drinks are good, but the tacos are the worst! Dont waste your money on the tacos here, there are several things urban steam does well, tacos are not one of them. Jose Muldoon's is much better for the price.

Re: “Explosives, junk contribute to Vista Grande neighborhood tensions

"wild-haired, bearded and more than a bit disheveled"

"Britten didn't show for his latest court date, sparking a municipal court warrant for his arrest...the El Paso County Court also has two warrants out for Britten's arrest"

"the police bomb squad showed up at the house and detonated what appeared to be a "homemade explosive device."

"Britten freely admits he's a meth addict, saying he became a heroin addict at age 11, and his mother got him off the drug and out of homelessness when he was 13. He says he was drinking heavily when he met a girl and fell in love around the age of 20"

"Britten says he and his two roommates are trying to get their lives together, but he freely admits "it's failed dramatically." With the explosives gone, the Britten household has gone back to being what it has long been to the neighborhood: an eyesore"

"Britten also has warrants for failure to appear for court dates relating to probation from drug charges and a burglary that he says was of metal from an "abandoned" lot. Britten says he was unaware of the warrants, explaining that he mixed up one of his court dates with one of Rozsa's court dates. He also says his lack of a car has kept him from the courts"

Yet he continues to move freely about, an addict with multiple warrants, potentially endangering his neighbors.

Britten's mother, who, she says, simply, "Kids will be kids."

Fine, then she can care for him, since he obviously can't do it himself...

Re: “Memorial lease, feeding hungry kids, ColoradoCare, and more

"that's exactly how it went with Congress blocking him so much that he had to resort to executive powers to accomplish the many good things he did"

Janet forgets/ignores the fact that the Dems held majorities in both chambers for much of BO's terms, and thus, did the most blocking of either party. When you can't even work with liberal/regressive legislators ostensibly on "your side", you own a radical agenda, and if you resort to executive governance through fiat ro circumvent the role of the legislative branch, you've overstepped your bounds in a most egregious fashion.

Re: “Peterson AFB launches commander investigation into religious display

Many Military Units have only God to Pray to about the risk and stress of Duty.

Over all the Centuries of conflict and casualties.

Morality and Ethics in War always return to God because Civil Law provides no
explanation of the forgiveness and rebirth known as Peace.

MRFF stuck in Legal Paradox of Civil Law..................only Spiritual and Natural Law sustain

Re: “CO voters will decide on at least four initiatives

69: No! The ACA is a tire-fire from inception through it's partial implementation, and since when can the gov't force the citizenry to purchase a private good, commodity and/or service under penalty-of-law--and why would you grant them that kind of power?

Minimum-wage: No! The negatives far outweigh any positives, and if you don't like your current employment status and/or wage structure, develop a better skill set and core competencies and invest in your education so that you're a more valuable and marketable employee, current or potential.

Medical aid in dying: Yes! End-of-life decisions such as this are best left to individuals who know their individual circumstances and what suits them best, up to and including accepted personal euthanasia.

Constitution amendment: Yes! More gov't interference and intrusion is abhorrent--we currently are drowning in regulation and micro-management of our lives--but the irony that reigning in legislation requires this type of initiative isn't lost on me.

No matter your take on the issues, get out and vote, esp. if you're sensible enough to realize that Gary Johnson is the only logical, rational, sensible candidate running for the Presidency this cycle!

Re: “Former employees speak out against accused "pot doc"

The cause of this niche business is the stupidity of making all marijuana dispensaries in some cities medical. It cost nearly half to shop at a medical shop with a card.
It's time to deschedule.
It's time to measure medical doses so patients can be sure they get consistent products.

Re: “UPDATE: Rain barrels now legal. Here's what to know.

I did the math by comparing the savings of a rainbarrel to my last water bill. If we got "up to 1200" gallons one year, I would save a grand total of $26. Not worth it to me.

Re: “Former employees speak out against accused "pot doc"

Doctors will not discuss the use of marijuana with patients. Unless someone is dying from cancer a primary care physician will not sign the paperwork for fear of Federal retribution on their prescription number. This has created a niche for what many will call a marijuana Dr. For over 10 years I talked to Dr.'s about pain management for my back and all them said just use it BUT I can't sign that paperwork.

While some of these Dr.'s are just signing paperwork they are consulting with the patient as required by law. Make no mistake that they are able to make money for signing their paperwork and see many patients in a day because a niche market has been created because they are the only Dr's willing to make the medical marijuana recommendation.

I don't approve of the price gauging for the visit, the charge for plant counts or not having proper ID. I do know I use the same Dr. every year for renewal and have discussed the medical records that I brought from my primary Dr and my MRI.

Re: “Bearden finds her true self as transgender athlete

I find being called 'transgenders' somewhat inappropriate; our gender is not all that defines us. 'Transgender people' would be better. One no longer uses that part of speech when referring to people with disabilities either methinks. They are not their disability either.

Re: “Some Air Force Academy cadets never have a chance — and they leave feeling defeated

Yes when you join the military they critcize EVERYTHING you do and give you instructions for EVERYTHING!! Especially officers. There is a reason for it. They need to know you can follow simple instructions that do not matter before they give you major instructions in which lives will be at stake if they are not adhered too. It isn't bullying, it isn't racist and it isn't brainwashing you into a cult. It is a carefully developed plan for the cadets professional development. It is not perfect ofcourse, and every branch is constantly adjusting their regimen, but the military has been developing soldiers/sailors/marines/airmen for over 240 years, and in doing so have developed the finest and deadliest military in the world. With such a track record, they will not conform to the individual, but rather require the individual to conform into what they know they need him/her to be
