Re: “Reader: This is Trump's agenda

Skycastle,

Without the EPA, who will develop environmental regulations? Do you seriously want your rivers being polluted without a government agency to protect them? How exactly are these agencies "unconstitutional"? You do realize per the Hyde Amendment that our Federal tax dollars CANNOT BE USED BY PLANNED PARENTHOOD TO PERFORM ABORTIONS, with few exceptions.

Re: “Reader: This is Trump's agenda

Awesome! I LOVE Trump's agenda. We need to terminate the EPA, DOE, wildlife rule, and Obamacare for the simple reason that they are ALL unconstitutional! None of those powers are given to the federal government by the U.S. Constitution, therefore they are usurpations of power - something forbidden by the Constitution. I say get rid of all illegal federal laws and agencies.

And defunding that abomination called Planned Parenthood (founded by the vile racist and genocidal maniac Margaret Sanger) would be wonderful. Aside from such funding being unconstitutional, govt. should NEVER steal taxpayer money to kill unborn children. That's so wrong it's vomitous.

Now unions, they can be a horror. When I worked for a utility company, I was FORCED to become a dues paying member of the the IBEW, and that rotten group used my dues money to support sickening Leftist candidates, whom I couldn't stand. Forcing people to pay money to groups which support horrible political candidates is just evil.

Re: “Local letters on the Gazette defend Richard Skorman, urge voters to cast ballots

I could not agree more that Mr. Skorman is being defamed over his opposition to the land swap, but I must complain about Jill Gaelber not acting on the facts to get the Land Swap overturned, see Facebook page COS Land Swap. The public is being lied to about the Swap and its appraisal and members of Council may not remain silent.

Re: “Local letters on the Gazette defend Richard Skorman, urge voters to cast ballots

Bensberg

I am sensing that the onslaught of this groundswell of negative attack campaigning, particularly directed at Mr. Skorman who has worked tirelessly for the community - has sapped the energy and interest out of this particular council election. And, that the mud-slinging is not playing well with local voters. And will backfire with Mr. Skorman winning by a substantial margin. And that your former commissioner associate will be looking for work a month after the election.

This comment has no basis in fact and should be deleted from this blog. This is so off-base that a reply is unnecessary.

Re: “Reader: Leave the yard signs alone

Politicians littering public land with signs is the bigger problem, we should end that.

Re: “Reader: Leave the yard signs alone

I had hundreds of signs stolen in a systematic and methodical way in my Council campaign. I'd love to be able to catch some of these people and have them testify to the City as an alternative punishment why they think what they're doing is ok.

It's indicative of the filth in Colorado Political scene. The political consultant class is well known for their pond-scum based moral compass. Sad that in Colorado Springs the paid-for-hire consultant class would rather cheat than let candidates compete on their strengths and weaknesses. Sad.

Re: “Reader: Leave the yard signs alone

It is happening everywhere and I'm sure to more than Richard.
The first time signs disappeared his opponent signs had sprung up over night.

Parents are setting a bad example. Stop trespassing!

Re: “Reader: Leave the yard signs alone

So, unless those signs were burned, they still exist somewhere. In a car trunk, in someone's garage, in a landfill? Who knows? But I'll keep my eye out for them just the same. If I spot them there will be the dickens to pay. I wish there was a "find my iPhone" app for political signs. It's a sad state of affairs in our city that that last sentence found its way into print. PS If you are on good terms with your trash collector you might want to ask the guys to let you know if they should see them... and from where they were picked up.

Re: “Reader: Vote to keep our town moving forward

While I support the same candidates as this letter writer, I really dislike the tone. These candidates have done an excellent job of presenting themselves and their credentials without resorting to the smear tactics of their opponents.

As supporters, let's do the same, please!

Re: “Reader: A reminder that Doug Lamborn is not representing the people

Put a $100 bill in an envelope and send it Lamborn. I'm sure that will get you in the door for a meeting with him. Another $100 might help him listen to you as well.

Sorry, but cynicism is a form of realism. In this case, the reality is that he doesn't give a whit about anyone but his donors.

Re: “Reader: Forget about the downtown stadium already

Personally, I have no problem with a downtown stadium, as long as our tax dollars are not spent to build and run it.

Absolute nonsense. Your sources are slightly less credible than Reefer Madness.
