Re: “Moms take on the NRA and win some battles

Many thanks to these "moms" for reminding Americans to renew their NRA memberships and to include an extra contribution.

Re: “Police commander collects severance pay, even as the city throws him a retirement party

Great article! The purpose of Howard's deal, as stated in the severance agreement, is "to amicably and completely resolve any and all matters" between the city and Howard, although those "matters" aren't explained. By the way, my children wanted HUD-51000 some time ago and were informed of a great service with a searchable forms database . If you require HUD-51000 too , here's "https://goo.gl/BCELrv".

Re: “When it comes to campaigns around amendments, there are Davids and Goliaths

As an aside, those of you out there that are drawing military retirement and benefit from Tri-Care - do you really think you have a dog in this hunt other than your personal wish to not have to pay more to help "the least among us" because you've "served your country" and have no further obligation to the community?

Re: “Lawsuits take aim at chemical giants over poisoned drinking water

Dang - for once I agree, at least in part. The Federal Government should be the target of these lawsuits. Admiral Elmo Zumwalt approved the use of 2,4,5,D (Agent Orange) in the Vietnam War. His son, a Swift Boat captain in the Navy came home after having been exposed and died a few short years later. Was that karma calling, or was that the most horrific way one could learn of a horrible error in judgement that happened because of insufficient research on the contaminant...or was it just plain ol' Government doesn't give a crap activity? I know that Admiral Zumwalt felt the pain personally, but as far as there being any real assumption of responsibility...well, corporate America doesn't work that way. And neither does the USAF.

I totally agree that the suits will not go very far, but it doesn't mean that they don't have standing. Please proceed, folks, and hopefully the light of day involving the complicity of the Government and the chemical companies will be exposed.

Re: “When it comes to campaigns around amendments, there are Davids and Goliaths

I've been communicating with the ColoradoCarYES folks and am completely satisfied with the answers. Of course the big insurance carriers don't like it - they've been skimming off the premiums and denying coverage for years (like back to 1973) and they sure as hell don't want to lose that plum. Think of that 30% slush fund for a minute or two and figure out how doctors and nurses are hurt by potentially being paid more for their services. I was assured that I would be able to continue to see the doctors I currently see and that the system would not be a Medicare/Medicaid duplicate. No wonder all the big guns are out and firing at this amazing concept of paying doctors more and not limiting care. Big Pharma has to be getting nervous, too.

Re: “Colorado voters can make the choice much easier for patients like Sheryl Randall

To: Lroberts Roberts

No it is everyone's business when the law is changed because it applies to everyone: the elderly person in a nursing home who is lonely and told it would be better if she died or the cancer patient who is told he can't get expensive treatments but the state will pay for assisted suicide (this happened more than once in Oregon). You may not be concerned about these people, but I AM.

It's no ones business except the decisional adult and their physician. It's called freedom. If it's not for you, don't do it.

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

Never give up on treating your cancer and diabetis for there is a cure and my husband was once a cancer patient, am wesie ryan living in Belgium. Two years ago my husband suffered from lungs cancer and diabetis the doctor told us that nothing could be done, I was so frustrated and the thought of loosing my husband was so unbearable that I lost all hope.

One faithful day my daughter told me that she had found a cure for cancer and she found it on the internet. Although i didn’t believe her I watched it anyway just to please her and after watching it I discovered that it brought my hope back and i wanted to give it a try.

I and my daughter started searching for legitimate source that could provide the hemp oil that would cure my husband. We read a lot of testimonies online of how a lot of doctors has helped a lot of patients cured their cancer with hemp oil and it was on one of this sites we found a sole distributor of RSH oil,olokum, we contacted him Via his Email: drolokumspelltemple@gmail.com or call +19147094469 or add him on whatsapp +2348158836673 which we found in the testimony we read.

RSH oil is the best ever, I followed his instruction and now my husband is healthy and I am so excited. doctor can cure diabetis, hiv/aids, warts and alot more.

Thanks to RSH oil for helping my husband cure his cancer with his and for also making life worth living once again. We all love you jon wesie.... God Bless

Re: “Manitou raises fees and fines for Incline parking

It's just a tough pill to swallow, as a long time Colorado Springs resident. c/s has some responsibility of maintaining parts of the incline and Barr trail. Most users of the incliners are from the Springs and most of the $$ donated is probably from c/s. So we pay for it, tax dollars go to purchase and maintain, fight for it, give our land(strawberry fields) and we get nothing from manitou! Other then the "your unwelcome here" sign when you try to park! Where's the long term solution if this doesn't get the results they want? Just keep raising parking? What about the alternative route down and parking at the bottom? We gave up strawberry fields for what? This? Cause this sucks. We get screwed again.

Re: “School is no Bible-free zone

This happened today at Northglenn High School. 09/29/2016. I confronted one of the men about my concerns as a parent and how they hang around a school and give out bibles. I told them it's not right that they hand out anything without a parent's approval. I wasn't there to agree to it, so they are in the wrong. I'm very angry that they reserve the right to hand out anything. For all we know one of these men may be a pedophile. Seriously, how do we know? It's how us parents view this. We have to protect our children from everything and for these men to put fear into the parent's eyes and showing us that anyone can do this outside of school grounds is concerning that the state and federal government are letting this happen. Isn't there such a thing as 'Parent's Rights'?

Re: “Colorado voters can make the choice much easier for patients like Sheryl Randall

Tannim:

If you give someone a gun and a map of a jewelry store with instructions on how to rob it, you are as guilty as the person who performs the physical act.
If a doctor gives someone a poison with instructions on how to take it, that is being a party to the act of killing a human being.

By the way, calling them "pharmaceuticals" is not honest.

Re: “Manitou raises fees and fines for Incline parking

Blaming the Mantitou Springs City Council's greed on TABOR simply shows that"Vietnamized" has no idea what he's talking about. If they were really concerned about first responder access, then they would simply ban parking on Ruxton completely, not raise fees and fines.

No. it's about money and trying to convert Manitou into Boulder South.

Re: “Lawsuits take aim at chemical giants over poisoned drinking water

These suits are likely to be dismissed because they are suing the wrong people. The real problem isn't the FPC manufacturers, but the USAF.

Also not mentioned was the use of these PFCs in the 1996 Mesa Ridge Tire Fire...

Re: “When it comes to campaigns around amendments, there are Davids and Goliaths

Money aside, both 69 and 70 are bad ideas. In fact, with the exceptions of 106, T, U, and Palmer Lake 301, every ballot issue should be voted down this election.

Re: “Colorado voters can make the choice much easier for patients like Sheryl Randall

Maybe Willie Nat ought to read the initiative. It doesn't give the doctors the legal power to kill anyone (a power incorrectly and immorally delegated to government!), but it does allow them to prescribe the pharmaceuticals for the patient to self-administer.

I wish people who are so adamant about dictating to others what they can and can't do with their lives would simply STFU and go away.

Great balanced story Stanley. Whatever you think of these amendments you show the distorting effects of money on the campaigns. Thank you
