Hey rock, point at what?
If you were trying to say "... made Michael's point...", please illuminate.
Sig I think you made Michael point.
Oh come now TejonTech, governments have always done that. State lotteries, Powerball, Mega-millions and all the rest focus on the poor. Not all stoners are on food stamps and your "Focus on the Family" opinion is pretty stale these days. That's how 64 passed in the first place. People are tired of paying prisons and SWAT teams to round up stoners. It doesn't make fiscal sense. I am also going to say you are no conservative. As a libertarian, I recognize your issue and it sounds like this "I don't want the government involved in peoples lives, but I want the government to impose my set of morals onto other people". It doesn't make sense. It is not unlike "I want abortions to be illegal and I also want to reduce welfare and food stamps". It would be impossible to reduce welfare by forcing single women to keep the children they cannot afford. Maybe someday, hardcore, knee-jerk "conservatives" will start to realize how wrong they can be, we can all be wrong. Here's to a future GOP with more people like Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, libertarianism is where it's at!
Another family farm is gonna go out, and for once it isn't because of the estate tax. Droughts are terrible, but the assault on the family farm began in 1916 by by the Democrat Woodrow Wilson. It works like this, farmer owns farm, housing developments move closer to farm raising the value of said farmland, farmer dies and his farm is now subject to the estate tax when he tries to pass it down, children of farmer cannot afford the estate tax and they have to sell. Then Archer Daniels Midland or ConAgra swoop in and buy the land at depressed prices. It has been going on for almost 100 years. Don't believe me? Well, before going to the Huffington Post of the Daily Kos to find some link to prove me wrong, just take a drive. Go out east of Denver or Longmont or even here in the Springs. See all those empty farmhouses? Look closely at the corn, sorghum or milo fields, notice the barb wire? Look at the sign on that wire, it will say something like "ConAgra field #59086". There is all the proof you need.

of course you would welcome gay marriage. You obviously have no respect for the institution considering you have been married what? 5 times?
dog turds? really? how classless can you get? what happened to objective, truthful, fair reporting?
What sort of old hick gets butt hurt at a fluff piece like this and then proceeds to call the staff what amounts to "ugly nerds living in their parent's basements?!"
Since you don't invest in clothing, perhaps you should look into getting a thicker skin.
crank: do you make this stuff up all by yourself or does your 5 year old great grand son help you? That was pretty juvenile even for the 5 year old.
If you work downtown the dress code is set either by the sleazy attorneys in shiny suits and thin soled shoes or homeless people in combat gear and beards.
So given neither of those groups are respectable, a dress code of blue jeans, clean shirt, and jacket seems the ticket for respectable, tax paying citizens who work for a living.
AWESOME! Rich is my new hero. Go Chargers.
Hey, ABQ has just as much great good, restaurants and culture as Santa Fe. You should visit sometime.
Regarding "Too much bigotry" I will let the facts speak for themselves. Newly elected city council person Helen Collins had this to say to Focus On The Family when asked "Do you support or oppose having the mayor issue a proclamation in support of the annual gay pride parade?”
"No mayor would speak for the city in welcoming celebrations of perversion. I would vote against any such resolution or statement on the city council. I personally support traditional families and marriage, and I oppose publicly endorsing such “diversity.”
She furthermore refused to answer ANY of the questions sent to here regarding equality in Colorado Springs.

Water law here in the west is byzantine and bizarre beyond belief - stranger than a Ranger Rich column. When major amounts of water are delivered by the SDS, can that water be used by the farm?
John, you have been taking shots at Council for years. Where's your sympathy for the losers since being a council loser yourself. I remember your non re election. You've been pushing Ms. Williams down our throats for years to cover her inadequacies and flat personality. Senator King beat her because District 3 didn't want someone who has been divorced multiple times before the age of 35, is an unemployed engineer, lives off her wealthy ranching family, moved into the district for the job, wanted to shut down Drake, and is spending our taxpayers money on feel good green projects. She has aligned herself with Martin, Hente, Snyder, and Bennett on many liberal votes and can no longer call herself a Republican or has Republican support. King only decided to run because Czelatko wasn't. She will have a political future. King didn't go after Williams, the citizens and utility workers did. They wanted her out for her poor leadership. Leigh and Dougan were idiots and an embarrassment to Council. No one could have helped them. Collins is a clone of Bruce and Dougan's extreme conservatism and will help keep this City in the toilet. This new Council is old, white, and cheap. I doubt we will see improvements in this Council anymore then the last one or the one before that. Im glad to see that most of your predictions for Council were wrong, again.
