Re: “Rep. Lamborn won't hold town halls

To be on Lamborn's list of approved voters one must be GOP, have contributed to his campaign of terror and must not be angry about any of the mindless legislation he either fostered or rubberstamped. He knows in his heart of hearts that the GOP majority of the CS area will undoubtedly continue to vote against their own self interest to keep his corrupt keaster in office until the cows come home. SAD

Re: “Trash and trash-talking derail community conversation about homelessness

Such a good point..Disrespecting the environment isn't exclusive to the homeless population.

Re: “10-year-old is seizure-free after one year of cannabis oil

Epilepsy is a neurological disorder marked by sudden recurrent episodes of sensory disturbance, loss of consciousness, or convulsions, associated with abnormal electrical activity in the brain. My son suffered from this disease for two years. He was constantly having Uncontrollable jerking movements of the arms and legs, Temporary confusion, Loss of consciousness and awareness. He was taking Acetazolamide Diamox 250 mgs bd, 1000mgs daily in divided doses. Carbamazepine (CBZ) Tegretol Regular 100200 mgs 12 times daily. Clobazam (CBZ) Frisium 510 mgs daily. Diazepam Valium (DZP) 510mgs daily. Ethosuximide Zarontin (ETH) 250 mgs every 1/52, 2000 mgs daily. But despite taking all this medications, his condition was not still getting better. I and my wife became very worried as my sons condition was becoming inimical by the day. So this prompted me to start a research online where I stumbled into an article in it I saw so many people talking about herbal doctor Uwadia Amenifo, how they have all positively benefited from his herbal cure. I took solace in their applaud to him and in their write up came the contact details of the herbal doctor. I copied out his contact details, and immediately I put a call across to him, and after explaining my sons condition to him he gave me hope by saying he have cured so many people of epilepsy and that curing my son for him is as easy as him slashing his fingers. So I was very encouraged and I gave him a YES to go ahead. After all set have be done he prepared the herbs, and shipped it to me. We succinctly followed his instructions on the usage of his herbal product, and behold just as we never anticipate, his herbs worked perfectly well, and cured my son of his epilepsy. This gave me joy and I see reasons to share on this page with all those who, and or have people who is still suffering from epilepsy to in my abrupt recommendation contact Dr Uwadia Amenifo for their immediate cure. Below is a book of his contact details.
Name: Doctor Uwadia Amenifo
Email: doctoruwadiaamenifo@gmail.com
Phone Number: +2349052015874.

Re: “Trash and trash-talking derail community conversation about homelessness

Looking at this from a sociological standpoint, it almost seems reflective of society as a whole. A quick trip to any of Colorado's outdoor wonders will show you the same thing. Some visitors are meticulous with clean up leaving barely a footprint, others are content to unload any and all of their worldly detritus around seemingly to remind everyone they were there. On one outing this summer to guffy gorge [paradise cove] I found bottles [not unexpected] two spent diapers, at least 10 dog poop bags [still confused why you would take the time to bag it but then leave it] a car battery, a host of lotto tickets and a condom wrapper. I seriously doubt those were left by a group of roving homeless looking to cliff dive. Maybe society just needs a refresher course on how to treat the outdoors.

As for not having the resources to provide sanitation services on trails or supply more housing, I totally understand. Its not like Colorado has some cash crop we could sell recreationally in this city that would generate supplemental tax dollars... [yes I made the obligatory - "why the heck doesnt Colorado Springs follow the will of the voters and allow retail marijuana sales?!? "] I understand there are no easy answers but that doesn't mean we shouldn't try.

Apologies in advance for any grammar or spelling errors, I am typing this on my phone and haven't had my coffee yet.

Re: “EPCSO's Special Investigations Fund audited by Department of Justice

Good point, however Nicola Sapp, the uneducated and unqualified Chief Financial and Administration Officer of El Paso County should be held accountable too. As the CFAO, she is the gatekeeper of all things financial for El Paso County to include the Sheriff's Office. What disciplinary measures will she face? This falls on her shoulders too.

Re: “Trash and trash-talking derail community conversation about homelessness

This doesn't just occur downtown - there are camps across the creek from the Goose Gossage park, and further down near Criterium Bike Shop. Some of those are piled with trash - in those areas, there are no facilities of any kind so I presume they're using the creek (which some tents are pitched right next to) for a toilet.

Re: “EPCSO's Special Investigations Fund audited by Department of Justice

You don't say!

Here is good question! Who was held accountable for this stupidity? Was Larry Borland held accountable? Was Brian McPike or Jane Fromme held accountable? Heck, Fromme has been the bookkeeper of those funds for many years now. Did she get disciplined?

It's interesting, Elder and his "little house of horrors" tried hiding this until the DirtyElder website exposed it and the media started snooping! A lot more credibility goes out to the DirtyElder website, that's for sure!

In any event, all along so many EPC and EPSO staff have said Borland, McPike, Fromme, Kniffen, Bell and DeStefano are INCOMPETENT and SHOULD NOT be assigned to jobs that deal with money!!!! This shows one very clear example. What a shame!

Re: “The resurgence of the radical left raises questions

Bill Maher Takes Credit for Milo Yiannopouloss Fall

After taking flak for inviting incendiary alt-right personality Milo Yiannopoulos onto his show Real Time, Bill Maher is now claiming credit for the pundits downfall. What I think people saw was an emotionally needy Ann Coulter wannabe, trying to make a buck off of the lefts propensity for outrage, Maher said. And by the end of the weekend, by dinnertime Monday, hes dropped as a speaker at CPAC. Then hes dropped by Breitbart, and his book deal falls through. As I say, sunlight is the best disinfectant. Youre welcome.

Re: “Prosecutor stuck with lifetime debt for collecting pension

Would be interesting if Mr. Zook found out if the employees at the Sheriff's Office that returned from retirement to work for Sheriff Elder had to pay back the retirement benefits they received.

Re: “The resurgence of the radical left raises questions

LMAO- Milo Yiannopoulos Disinvited From Conservative Confab, Loses Book Deal
Gay alt-right provocateur Milo Yiannopoulos has been disinvited from the Conservative Political Action Conference after videos surfaced of him defending sex between men and boys and making light of the sexual assault of women.
The videos have also cost him a book contract with Simon & Schuster and are threatening his position with conservative website Breitbart. KARMA IS A BITCH!!!

Re: “Prosecutor stuck with lifetime debt for collecting pension

Something is very wrong with this! The fact that Dan received no notification from the Plan about return to work clause is unacceptable!! Was his wife notified? Did she sign a waiver? I think the Plan, the county commissioners and whatever powers that be need to look at how retirees are notified about retirement, return to work policy and how it affects the spouse! This should not be happening to someone who put in nearly 30 years for El Paso county!!!!

One thing not in the article is that Dan was Prosecutor of the year in 2004, the first from El Paso County in state history.

Re: “Bernie Sanders' "supervolunteers" want to form a new progressive party

"Bernie would have won"??? These folks aren't just drinking the Kool Aid, they're bathing in it. I hope this article is true, though, and Sanders actually sucks more power away from the loony left by forming his own party. That will absolutely guarantee a GOP stronghold on power for the next 16 years--at LEAST.
