Re: “Trump made no sense — or friends — during Springs campaign stop

Thank you to those who tolerated the hateful comments and stood up against Trump's racist hate-mongering, showing by example that love for humanity is a better way. I have faith in humanity that we will rise up over this threat to democracy and diversity, but it deeply saddens me that racism is so openly expressed now, even children. Hard to put a lid on that kind of behavior once it's out there....

I know Electra personally and would trust her with my life. She would be a great representative--she is tough and smart and thinks deeply about ways to provide for the future while offering solutions for the present.

Re: “Darryl Glenn suddenly recalls a fight with his father that led to a criminal charge

Why is it that the Denver Post and the Indy can't stop themselves from wallowing in the details of an event that happened 32 years ago and which is nobody's business outside the Glenn family? The Gazette gave the answer to this baffling question in their editorial yesterday, titled "Media on witch hunt to get Darryl Glenn."

The Gazette notes that there is a double standard in reporting and editorializing on politicians. Case in point: Mark Udall was arrested for transporting amphetamines and marijuana when he was 21. His father, Mo Udall, the powerful Arizona congressman, intervened and the 2 felonies were plea bargained to a misdemeanor. Mark's car was permanently seized, he paid a fine, spent a night in jail, and got 6 months probation. The Denver Post was virtually mum when the facts - contradicting Mark's remembrances of the event - were made public. The Post conducted no investigative reports or condemnatory editorials re Udall. But re Glenn, the Post can't stop stirring the mud. The Gazette is right. Democrats get a wink and a nod and Republicans get tarred, feathered and run out of town.

Re: “Two women Dems looking to break political curse in county commissioner races

I live in District 4 and I will be leaving the BOCC slot blank, because neither of them match my needs for representation and administration in the county, which is basic infrastructure maintenance and improvement, more law enforcement beyond our lone sheriff deputy, and otherwise getting the county and state government out of our way.

Glenn is just Ed Jones 2.0, with the same script but better polish.

Not a good candidate. Lousy commissioner. Questionable integrity and honesty, too.

Re: “Trump made no sense — or friends — during Springs campaign stop

Donald Trump is running a massive con game. He's a carpetbagging RINO that is a friend of Hillary's, has been for years, and he's deliberately tanking and taking the GOP with him in order to elect Hillary. It's the only thing that explains all of his bizarre behavior. People are falling for the con all over, from the grassroots to the elite. That's why the only choice is Gary Johnson.

Re: “Trump made no sense — or friends — during Springs campaign stop

Trump may accidentally encourage more people to run for office by showing even a lunatic sociopath can win some votes. No matter how bad he loses he will forever claim victory.

Re: “Trump made no sense — or friends — during Springs campaign stop

Or you can vote for Lying Hillary that has a proven record of not being a capable Secretary Of State. Directly responsible for Americans being murdered in Benghazi. Jeopardizing national security with classified emails and lying to the entire nation about it. Etc……..

Obvious explanation: like Hitler in his final days, The Donald has resorted to heavy drug use to keep himself going. Fits all the facts, doesn't it?

Couldn't they just do a brewery or a coffee shop instead?

Sure would be nice to be able to go snowboarding without having to drive a few hours out and back.
