Re: “This could leave a mark

Yes, Ms. Le Lait, Colo(R)ado Sp(R)ings is the capitol of crazy. Sadly, should Rep. Doug Lamborn ever leave office, local voters would give strong consideration to replacing him with Klingensmith or another uberconservative who lacks style and substance.

Re: “Local NAACP courts controversy

This organization is a complete relic, and their leader is a Republican shows me that they didn't do their homework before making this man president, the Facebook page is also a joke this organization needs to just fade away.

Re: “Local NAACP courts controversy

Active members would have known about this informational meeting for months. It was not Democrat or Republican. It was for information only. By the by, I wasn't allowed to speak. Remember? That is why I left the room. I don't think you know me as I don't have a "group." I am fully committed to the mission of the NAACP. Had I been allowed to speak, my suggestion was to let candidates who are running for office speak. You should also be careful about accusing an elected official of future violence. The lady behind me came with a prepared statement - which she read, yet she stated she didn't know about the meeting. If there is a sub-group, then she was definitely their pawn. The NAACP has had the information put out on Facebook and their website and the next month's meeting is always stated at the end of the meeting. Yet she didn't know? What turned the informational meeting into politics was that lady behind me and then Rosemary Harris taking over the meeting from the Vice President.

Re: “Local NAACP courts controversy

Ms. Null...I was there...as were you...which part of this article do you think is incorrect? Perhaps the part where your group was addressed by a gentleman who said he was offended that you thought he was naive or stupid enough to not notice the tea party overtures? Littleton has big balls to be associated with the Oath Keepers and then show up at a meeting addressing the very people she would shoot in a heart beat.

Re: “See him run

Supreme Court says corporations can be people which seriously implies that people can be corporations. If corporations are composed of many people, then so can marriage be a corporation of multiple people if all of them sign-on to the binding contract. Bring on plural marriage. Hip Hip Hooray! Thank you Supreme Court!

I wonder how social conservatives like the Supreme Court now that its "corporations are people" ruling has essentially destroyed the 1-man 1-woman concept of marriage. It's about time we got religion out of the marriage contract for those who so choose.

I also noticed that Anti-Gay groups like Focus on the Family haven't said a word about laws on adultery being taken off of the books in Colorado in the past year, or laws on bigamy now being challenged: http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/sister…

Oh, Adrian, repeating someone else's words with no background information easily gleaned from Google. No need to interview parties involved, just be a mouthpiece. Where did you study Journalism?

Re: “Trickle-down

"Who's to Blame?" Pull up AlterNet, search for "The Real Reason This Week's Massive Ice Storm is So Unusual", then take a look at the documentary attached to the first-oldest comment. It explains how weather control is now in place via geoengineering. Chem. trailing is often seen here in the Colorado Springs area, and additional chemicals added to the atmosphere are said to come from HAARP sites. This info. is and has been leaking out, in spite of its being 'classified'.

Next question: Who's to blame for all this weather control attempt via massive chems. being added to the atmosphere? Reasonable guess - the fossil 'foolers', in order to get a grip on global warming and insure the continuation of their profits from their so global warming and atmosphere ruining fossil fuels. Also profitable for them is coming shortage of drinkable water (in place now in California, Michigan, etc., as the fossil 'foolers' buy up water rights whenever and wherever they can.

WATCH: 'Christian' Family's Terrifying Response to Son Coming Out

When Daniel Pierce told his extended family he was gay, he didn't expect the violent, hateful reaction he received. He is now staying with a family friend, away from his abusers.

Re: “See him run

Let me also state, Kathy, that many gays are also Christians, and Christ said that the Greatest Commandment is to love God with all of your heart, soul, mind and strength, and your neighbor as yourself. And one of the 10 Commandments is to NOT BARE FALSE WITNESS AGAINST YOUR NEIGHBOR. I am your neighbor and you are telling people lies about us gay folk!

Re: “See him run

I'm not politically correct," he said later. "I really think it is a destructive force in our country and it keeps people from talking." No, maybe we the people are thinking for ourselves and going against the BS rhetoric of your interpretation of the Bible!

I think it is his kind of thinking that is the destructive force in our country! I don't know why you would ever think that he would unite our country Kathy, when he states "gay-marriage proponents in a list that included supporters of bestiality and pedophilia." If you don't believe in Marriage Equality, then don't marry someone of the same sex, but to deny other American's their right to marry is so wrong and I hope Americans cab see his bigotry for what it is! Anyone can claim its their religious right, so practice what you preach and let others live their lives as they choose!

Re: “War gear for local cops

Dave, it was reported on, fairly widely, before Ferguson. Some of those same stories are being referenced in new stories tied to Ferguson, hence "resurfaced." We're not trying to fool or confuse anyone; just the opposite. And if there were similar programs predating the early '90s, we weren't aware of them.

Re: “War gear for local cops

"reports have resurfaced that police departments are being equipped with free gear such as armored vehicles from the military."

Resurfaced? You make it sound like the reports went away for a while or were being covered up. Nothing "resurfaced", they have been reported on pretty constantly. And it didn't start in the 90s, that was just one of the more recent programs, it has been going on for decades longer than that. You can easily go back to the 1920s and find examples of this happening.

Re: “Get the message?

You tweeted,

CO Springs Indy @csindependent
"Move to higher ground if water is approaching"? Really, we're not new to this flooding thing.

Then please explain why we kept seeing cars driving through areas they shouldn't have the other day and CSFD routinely has to perform water rescues during flooding.

Re: “City for Champions still controversial

This seems a bit backwards. Shouldn't we see the contents of the study before we finalize a resolution of agreement? No study is completely useless.

Re: “City for Champions still controversial

Anschutz owns more stadiums and event centers in COS than he and his entertainment impresarios know what to do with. He is the proud owner of: (1) the Broadmoor Event Center Complex - various venues totaling 285K sq ft; (2) the World Arena - an 86K seat multi-purpose arena & event venue plus an adjacent ice rink; and (3) the Norris-Penrose Event Center - a 36K sq ft indoor arena and a 10K seat outdoor stadium.

There is nothing unique about stadiums. Tourists don't come from thousands of miles around to visit a stadium. Every city already has a stadium or two or three. COS is not lacking in stadiums, but what makes COS truly unique is that we don't have a DOWNTOWN stadium, and even more shocking, we don't want one. The mayor, City Leaders, and developers, THEY want a downtown stadium, but not us. And we - the unenlightened, the skeptical, the dullards - don't think it's very sporting of the mayor and City Leaders to force us to pay for a redundant, superfluous, asphalt, concrete, fake grass, graffiti plastered, panhandler infested, garbage strewn, iconic and visionary stadium/event center.

Re: “A transformed Fort Lyon promises homeless a second chance

Having worked directly in urban settings with homeless convicted ID drug users for years I can tell you that the Fort Lyon model is simply brilliant! Remove the homeless from the temptations/habits of their urban setting and they will experience and then demonstrate healthy behavior change!
