K man...look at some the really nasty things, even votes, against me, and not a word of correction from the editor guy. This is blog is the definition of an unbalanced spin zone
Gosh K, thanks for your wonderful contribution. Of course, censorship wasn't even close to the subject, but not surprising that you would miss it. Very difficult to see reality from high on that perch you place yourself while casting your self-righteous judgments.
As to your other point re: "... anyone and everyone with whom they disagree." Another blatant falsehood. Of course you will see my challenge of your lie as a "malicious personal attack". But such is the distorted, self-deluded liberal mind.
By the way, siggie, censorship is something enforced by the government. The Indy is a private, profitable business, not an arm of the government, and certainly is under no obligation to publish your vituperation. As a "conservative" you ought to know that. You ought to be defending their right to excise your blather from their privately-owned blogs. Instead you carp as if you are entitled to post anything you desire in the space you are not paying for.
siggie says, "...5% are conservatives that come in for a little humor." And they find nothing quite so funny as malicious personal attacks on anyone and everyone with whom they disagree.
Siggie, you forgot to add the city and utility employees who come here protecting their free ride life. That is why there is such resistance to this articles in the likes and dislikes....a huge portion of Indy readers think they deserve a $50,000 bonus for having been at work on days for which they have already been paid.
The local talk about these sick days is total outrage except among government dependent leaches who are sitting at Starbucks or in their offices all day with nothing to do...or no motivation to move along the lines waiting to be served like at the DMV or SS offices.
Maic: It only seems that way because the Indy and 60% of its readership reside in the extreme left edges of reality. 35% have lost all sense of reality and the other 5% are conservatives that come in for a little humor.
You all take yourselves much too seriously.
Kirk, thank you for removing the comment. Siggie has a long history of personal and malicious attacks whenever he disagrees with someone, which happens quite often. I appreciate the articles written by the Indy reporters. They are fair, balanced, transparent and accurate. It is refreshing to have a news source such as the Indy that is not afraid to investigate and report stories in a honest, thorough, an unbiased manner which may not always appeal to the readers and public officials. Keep up the good work!
so it seems that tt prefers that conversations be taken over by the simple minded conservatives that spend all their time on this site spewing hate and put-downs. get a life!
Any discussion about dope on these pages gets quickly taken over by the dopes who smoke it and it becomes an insane and inane conversation.
Oh, and any study done by the government will be biased. The government has been lying to you about marijuana for 80 years. They just can't quit lying. They need to continue the lie to keep their funding.
Marijuana has been and always will be a part of our society regardless of any prohibition. 50 Billion Dollars a year in drug war expenses has done nothing to deter our citizens desire to smoke marijuana. The prohibition has destroyed millions of lives, while the plant has not been the cause of a single overdose, ever. You can't even say that about water.
Since sales will continue regardless of legal status, it seems that there is question before us now. Do we continue to fund the black market and cartels through underground sales, or do we regulate and tax it like alcohol? The latter is what the citizens of Colorado, and more specifically Colorado Springs voted for.
We can either do it now, or do it through a citizen driven initiative. We are fairly sick of our elected representatives that fail to represent.
I attempted to read the mess of a blog Pete K. recommended above regarding Waldorf education. My sister is a Waldorf teacher trained in Boulder, CO. She has worked in both public and private schools and believes the Waldorf schools she has been associated with offer a more humane approach to becoming a life-long learner than what the factory-assembly-line public education provides. Children are not one-size-fits all and should not be treated that way!
Jeez, gimme a break already -- what a joke, considering that the legal recreational marijuana we're talking about here is for ADULTS and if regulated the same way that alcohol is (the way WE voted for it btw) concerns about teen usage remains the same as it always has. Wish there were a requirement that our elected officials have some sort of cognitive thinking skills instead of just pushing forward with their own emotional fear-spewing and unfounded agendas.
So, what did Mayor Botch smoke that caused him to lose his scruples?
The Mayor should stick to "politics"
, he's no Doctor, but he plays one on TV and at council meetings...
WOW!!! SMH ******BACH IS A PROPAGANDA MACHINE... Now I know where granny is getting the garbage, do some research. ya Dolt. Our society is better with MMJ, and MJ !!!
mayor Bach should be more worried about what kind of pollution is wandering around in the area he wants to make into something. Benzene and such are far more dangerous to health (and memory) that a little Colorado Sinsemilla.
Thank you Indy for looking into this.
People in the private sector are given sick days to say we understand you might get sick, so don't freak out when you can't come to work because you have the flu, and as a matter of fact don't come in and infect the rest of us.
If they don't need to use their sick days, they don't get a bonus, they are simply lucky not to have been sick...and it certainly doesn't roll over into a $50,000 windfall by accumulating year after year.
This is the worst case of government disregard for the struggle of tax payers, and the worst use of our money of which our government claims never to have enough I have ever seen.
I am offended and have lost all respect for local government and its employees...they are stealing us blind. Nothing but a bunch of thieves from top to bottom. They have shamed themselves and their work.
As top republican leaders in town are saying, it didn't take long for reformer Bach to get sucked into the system and become offender Bach.
Next up in the "Refer Madness" hysteria:
BS Kirk,. it represented the truth. The hypocrisy and duplicity of the loony left never ceases to amaze. Perhaps you should censor all of the "personal attack" articles written about Mayor Bach (or anyone conservative) since you are now into censorship.
