Re: “Same-sex marriage could add $50 million to Colorado economy

The Gay Marriage Bigots Strike Again

CEO Brendan Eich was chased out of Mozilla for supporting Proposition 8. That's setting a dangerous precedent.…

Re: “Same-sex marriage could add $50 million to Colorado economy

More Gay Terrorism...the gay agenda trumps religious rights.

The Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal from Christian photographers who were fined and admonished by the New Mexico Supreme Court for declining to work a same-sex ceremony, in what could be a blow to religious business owners.

The high court decision not to take up the appeal means the New Mexico ruling against them stands. That ruling is only binding in New Mexico, but could set a precedent that can be cited in subsequent cases.

In this case, Elane Photography, owned by Jon and Elaine Huguenin of New Mexico, was brought to court for refusing to photograph a same-sex couple's commitment ceremony in 2006.

An attorney for the couple argued that the business openly advertises its wedding photography services, and as a public business is required to follow the same anti-discrimination laws as any other company.

The New Mexico Supreme Court ruled in August that the business's refusal to photograph the ceremony involving two women did violate the state's Human Rights Act.

Lawyers for the business, though, argued the ruling violates the business owners' free speech rights by compelling them to "express messages that conflict with their religious beliefs."

Elaine Huguenin said she also has a right of artistic expression under the First Amendment that allows her to choose what pictures to take, or refrain from taking.

CC still sucks. Why would George want to go to a losing hockey program.

Re: “Assembly delegates set Elder up to be next sheriff

Bill Elder said no file exists on him right? Then why is his name and his interview documented in the files of the other people that were involved in the fraud? Why did Bill Elder quit working at the sheriffs office if he had such a "spotless" record. Those are two questions I'd like answered.

Re: “Privatizing: Is it really the way to go?

Private pensions are a shared expense that employe and employer pay every pay. It is no different than, shared cost of social security in public sector and people really need to stop listening to all the political BS. Half the pension problems were related to gov't fail to pay or not making the installment when they should have.
Oh and by the way even if you pay in to SS and belong to a private pension you are only eligible for a small portion of SS. Not like public who can get both. (Facts)

Re: “Same-sex marriage could add $50 million to Colorado economy are a terrorist, terrorizing anyone who won't support your perverted agenda...bringing fear into the hearts of the weak, afraid they will be labelled bigots.

Someone needs to stand against you and you cohorts that want to bring down America the way similar people brought down Rome.

Gays don't want marriage, the want acceptance of their behavior...and that is never going to happen in reality, even though you terrorize people in saying they think you are fine...the reality is they may think you are entertaining, but they don't think you are healthy.

Re: “City releases final C4C resolution

The final resolution submitted to the OEDIT indicates that the proponents are unable to procure even 20 annual "Olympic" type events to be held in the proposed stadium. If 20 is a major hurdle, how likely is it that the stadium/event center will host the necessary 200+ annual events? It's obvious that there is no void needing to be filled. What little demand there is for a sports facility can be supplied by the World Arena, which, for a few dollars, can be rechristened as the Olympic World Arena.

To attract businesses and the accompanying jobs, COS must offer more economic freedom, less regulations, and a simpler tax code than competing cities. A friendly business climate is why companies choose to locate in SLC and San Antoniio rather than COS. A CEO's relocation decision is not influenced by whether a city does or does not have a stadium. Struggling cities with good leaders don't waste their time and the citizens dollars on visionary architectural icons. Instead, they fix what what needs fixing and then, after the economy is humming, they think about building cultural monuments. Our leaders need to study and learn why SLC etc are successful in attracting business and why COS isn't.

Re: “Charlie McGrath's hair, City for Champions, greening the military, and more

And Judy Carnick! Are you unaware that our Mayor, The Prince of Darkness, is a real estate developer? What did voters think that meant? Sell land to the city and have the state and city taxpayers foot the bill. City of/for Chumps was/is a bad idea from the word "go"... The taxpayers bought him a huge flat screen TV for his office I hear, of course I have not seen it and of course he will never invite me to watch it. He has demanded all visitors to the city ad. building get a hall pass. It is for one floor. Want to go to another? Get another hall pass. He bought living room furniture for the lobby. Nobody is allowed to sit on it. He has employees doing terrorist drills and I hear he wants a drive in garage/elevator so he does not have to see people. Oh yeah and he spent big bucks for a security system for his office. No smoking in the parks! A man of action...Baby boomers are still the spoiled brats they always were. Now they run everything, we are doomed.

Re: “Charlie McGrath's hair, City for Champions, greening the military, and more

When Alma Cremonesi says something stupid, thank a teacher. I will hold off on a comment here and write to the Editor in hopes they print it. I will put it here as well. Alma Cremonesi needs to be "outed" just like the rest of these smug chuckle-heads that do not know the first thing about anything. I am weary of the idiocy I keep hearing and weary of commenting all over the Internet but my Rights and Freedoms are at stake. Alma Cremonesi does not give a rat's ass about anyone else but herself... Alma Cremonesi is attempting to infringe...

Re: “City releases final C4C resolution

The only question in my mind is: when is Phil Anshutz going to step in and put his money on the table. My thought is he will act when the fund raising effort locally falls short.

Re: “Same-sex marriage could add $50 million to Colorado economy

TT, I just enjoy your ignorant and belligerent comments so very much- LMAO at you!

Your self-righteousness just amazes me sometimes, like you are the only moral and upstanding member in our community on the Indy board. And just who are these "healthy people" you are referring to? Other bigots like yourself who are trying to regulate other people's lives by your belief system when you preach Religious Freedom and don't give it to others? I go to work, pay my bills and taxes, and donate to charity with time and money, so not sure how you figure people like me are making Colorado such an immoral place to be. Maybe you should move to Las Vegas???? LOL

Re: “Cold beauty

First of all let me just say Quail does not have the amount of mobiles in the park that was described in the beginning of the story. It has approx 281 mobiles in the park, also I recently know first hand that this is not an issue anymore, As far as I see the management now is awesome, I have family that lives in the park and it is kept very nice, I think that the woman in the story jumped the gun by removing her rose bushes she did not have to do that, we also are in a drought here in colorado and I know that the park works on this all the time with water and lawns etc, which is understanding. Anyhow it seems like Quail is much better now than ever with the new management.

No, TejonTech, in the case of same sex marriage, tax dollars are just an added benefit of doing the right thing.

Save your money!! Don't go to BB King. Saw him two years ago, he was on stage for about 45 minutes but actually played for about ten minutes. His backup band will be the entertainment you get...terrible show, long past his time.
