Re: “She wanted manly and badass

Maybe it's a sign for Disappointed to get in touch with what moves her husband rather than what moves her. It's his choice, after all. And a good opportunity to widen her horizons and explore other things than her preconceived notions of the world.

As for the Easy Rider reference, if you've seen the movie, you know how THAT ended.

Planting Peace Launches Holiday HIV/AIDS Campaign In Response To Anti-Gay Pastor's Remarks

"Pastor Anderson calling for the execution of gays is a startling reminder of how much hate and bigotry still exists in our society," Planting Peace President Aaron Jackson told The Huffington Post in an email. "In keeping with Planting Peace's philosophy of countering messages of hate with compassion, we wanted to provide a positive platform to bring people together to not only help people with HIV, but to do so in a lighthearted way that will raise awareness for a very serious issue."…

Re: “She wanted manly and badass

Question to the author: Why continue to promote unhealthy stereotypes? Why do we continue to proliferate the idea that a man must look a certain way or dress a certain way or ride or drive a certain vehicle to be considered a man? These antiquated ideas can only hurt relationships. What if the man wrote that he disappointed that his wife didn't dress like Mrs. Cleaver, and get in the kitchen to make him sandwiches? We wouldn't put up with that ridiculous idea, so why are we putting the same negative stereotypes on men? A means of transportation known world-wide for its ease of use, power and flexibility belongs to all the people, men and women. It's really pitiful that at the end of the day, you have to tell a person what they need to dress, wear or ride to fulfill an ultimately limiting idea of a sexual stereotype. And by the way, as a lady rider, scooters are frickin' awesome and fun. So are motorcycles, and skateboards and roller skates. I don't care what anyone rides, as long as they ride safely and responsibly. Also hubby and wife need to attend as MSF course together and then go out riding and visit a few scooter rallys and join a scooter club to see what riding a PTW is really all about. Less about old stereotypes next time please.

Re: “Despicable Me 2 lives up to the title in all the worst ways

This reviewer is a perfect example of the 'finds everything offensive' brigade'. I hope this reviewer stays home for the rest of her life as it is obvious she finds the world just too mean and oppressive.

What a shabby piece of journalism. If only life was as simple as Bryce would have you believe.

Re: “She wanted manly and badass

Ddenny, no, you missed the point. The writer obviously used terms that would suggest the purchase of a scooter was ‘gay’. We don’t need this kind of intolerance by a self proclaimed writer. If she saved her money for a chain saw, is that considered ‘butch’?

Re: “She wanted manly and badass

You have obviously missed the point of the advice. It is NOT about "general transportation", it is about expectations, disappointment, dreams, relationship issues, such as making shared decisions on major purchases. As for the awards, "Her LA Times Magazine piece, Return of the Pink Rambler, won second place for "Best Magazine Feature Of 1999," and her New York Daily News series won first place in the "dailies above 100,000 circ" category -- also in the Southern California Journalism Awards."

Re: “Stormwater management, burning wood for power generation, and more

Yes, Clara, your failure to engage and explain yourself is a reasonable substitute for discourse and debate.

Frequently, a lack of explanation is far more telling than a formal one, and thus, I thank you for simply walking away, as this underscores the lack of verification I requested.

You presented grandiose implications of subversive, mercenary intrusions, yet seem strangely unable to quantify them.

But I'm sure the reason is that high-tea with the Mad-Hatter and Alice calls; enjoy your afternoon, and please, regale us with specific tales from your cranium when you're willing and able.

Re: “She wanted manly and badass

One of the worst articles ever written. Scooters are used throughout the world for general transportation. A guys manhood shouldn’t be questioned in this case. Maybe if she had her hubby dress up in a bad boy biker costume that may have obtained the desired results she wanted. BTW: the writer is NOT a famous award winner. Look it up.

Re: “Stormwater management, burning wood for power generation, and more

Jeff, no doubt the tooth fairy is still visiting your dentures. I don't have time or the inclination to play secretary to your curiosity. You should get out more and definitely read more and then you might be a little more worldly wise.

Re: “Green turns to gray

No and Yes. LEED is somewhat of a "racket". But, there are many examples of certifications, accepted by professionals, and useful until something better comes along. The certification procedure is assessed frequently and updated.

Yes, there are ways to assess how well the building performs. LEED doesn't do this, it would be up to the building owners, if they wanted to. Likewise, it is the building owners' responsibility to upkeep the structure to maintain efficiency. Also keep in mind that, while many of the LEED measures save money in the long run, some do not (for the specific building), but still benefit the local environment, which is a primary goal.

Re: “Stormwater management, burning wood for power generation, and more

Well, Clara, unless you can provide tangible, factual evidence of these black ops, such allegations are mere conjecture on your part.

No doubt we are covertly involved in ALL nations affairs, but can you regale us with specific tales of our exploits and clandestine activities to the South, or would that blow your cover and expose you to potential retributive harm? ;-)

And what exactly do these supposed incursions have to do with the border crisis and the unConstitutional granting of amanesty to millions of illegals?

Re: “Stormwater management, burning wood for power generation, and more

The U.S. has a long history of covert operations in Mexico and Central America. The average citizen generally doesn't know what we're doing in those areas -- or what our allies are doing -- until after the deed is done. The main reason we know about drones in Pakistan and Afghanistan is the intrepid reporting of Pakistani journalists that gets picked up by American newspapers.

Re: “Cyber campaigning for Colorado Springs mayor

Amy Lathan is a corrupt politician who is actively engaging in deception and pilfering of voter approved 1A money that was approved by the voters for the Sheriff's Office specifically, not El Paso County. Lathan and her band of corrupt heathens (Hisey, Clark, Greene, Sapp and Reid) are out to screw the voters to include this OEM transition thereby misappropriating and misusing 1A tax dollars. The County needs to rid themselves of Lathan, and the city sure doesn't need to adopt that cancerous politician to screw with the city of Colorado Springs.

John Suthers and Mary Lou Makepeace, at this juncture, are the only two who are legitimately capable and educated enough to make valid attempts to fix Bach's screw ups!

Re: “My official job application

Ms Reynolds, yes I do live in District 2. With a name like Bill Murray I cannot be too conservative, or too over the top, or too much of a control freak. Have you seen my facebook page? And no one has ever called me crabby. I can't be Joel Miller's surrogate dad because I have to much hair! :+} And I appreciate your support.
