I already told you, TejonTech. It was working people of all colors voting for jobs and Keynesian economics.
So Anthony...if it wasn't class envy, blacks voting for another black (racism), and other folks wanting free stuff, tell me what it is.
Tejon, anyone who honestly believes this delusional nonsense
""Obama's reelection is based on class baiting and envy. We have now tipped the country to more give-me, give-me people, than let me alone so I can succeed people.""
should expect that their preferred political candidates will be on the losing side for years to come. the first step towards political victory is to honestly assess why you lost. the class envy garbage may make the FOX news/talk radio crowd feel good. But like so much of what they believe, has little if any relationship to reality.
Keep believing in talk radio fairy tales. By the way, how's that "Romney landslide" coming along? I mean the polls were all "skewed" weren't they?
TejonTech, do you have a source for that number?
When Bush, jr, left office, no jobs were being created in the private sector at all. Jobs were being lost at an alarming rate. Now, 27% of new jobs are being created by the private sector. That is called an improvement, and Obama managed to do it in the face of Republican stonewalling, without raising taxes or creating new ones, and while slowly reducing the deficit.
Furthermore, during a recession interest rates on borrowed money fall dramatically. If the government must borrow money, there will be no better time than now. When the recession ends and prosperity returns, interest rates will rise and so will tax revenues. That will be the time to pay off the debts.

Re: Mayor Bach in charge of CSU
Two words: HELL NO!!!!!!
Reason: Dictator Strong Mayor Bach has enough to rape the folk of C/S over. If Bach gets his hands on CSU, the utility rates, due to privatization, will skyrocket. We need to keep his hands off of this!!
It would appear that Mr. K's inane ramblings are as he describes in his own words "...nothing besides the writer's baseless prejudice."
K...73% of all new jobs are created by e federal government...a real victory for people looking at the world while on drugs.
k...You are such a duped talking points liberal...
Yes, TejonTech, Obama's victory was based in part on the peoples' envy of those who manage to weasel out of paying their fair share of taxes, while reaping the greatest benefits our nation has to offer--a situation so egregious, even rich "let me alone so I can succeed people" voted for Obama.
I see TejonTech has added his own unfounded and unproven prejudices to the long list of conservative self-deceptions.
The unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest rate in four years. Working people voted for Obama in our own best self-interest and the latest unemployment figures more than justify us. Those who believe workers ought to vote against their self-interest are the ones who are truly "economically illiterate."
Obama's reelection is based on class baiting and envy.
We have now tipped the country to more give-me, give-me people, than let me alone so I can succeed people.
We will never be the same again as more of our income is taken from us to fund those who refuse to develop their own incomes.
Under Obama an independent person pays for their own birth control...what a model to live up to.
Re: The re-election.
The Merriam-Webster dictionary offers several synonyms for the word "intelligence," such as "reason, shrewdness, comprehension," but not "enlightenment," nor "awareness." It seems to me someone who wants to discuss intelligence ought to be able to define the subject correctly.
I cannot fathom what it means to "have intelligence racially trapped," although Ms. Christensen's next sentence seems to be trying to say, metaphorically, either that intelligence is not the sole property of any one race, or that intelligence is not affected by skin color, or something like that. It seems to me someone who wants an intelligent discussion ought to learn how to communicate clearly.
All of which is somehow supposed to support her contention that Obama's recent electoral victory has nothing to do with changing demographics, but is solely the product of the ignorance of "economically illiterate" Americans. This is not a logical conclusion. It is, in fact, a non sequitur, that demonstrates nothing besides the writer's baseless prejudice.
Because we are community-owned, we encourage all customers to stay informed and stay involved in their utility. Utilities Board meetings are broadcast live on our website and past meetings are available through our online archive.

The Neumann System scrubber is not an "investment", it is a product that the utility company is purchasing.
Also, I can't think of anything more ridiculous than putting the Mayor in charge of the Utilities. They need a dedicated board that actually has industry knowledge. Mayor Bach's input on the operation of CSU has been one of the biggest conflicts of interest I have seen in this city. The biggest mistake we have made as citizens is to put a self-serving developer in charge of our city that has already been ruined by the developers.
Just for kicks, I took your advice, Jesse, and substituted "Black men" for "White men," but it makes no sense since Black men never have ruled in America. Next I tried "Hispanic men," and it works for major sections of America, like Texas and California. Still, it was so long ago no one can remember what it was really like, although native Texans will surely echo Bob Nemanich, saying it was "worse than now," without being accused of racism.
Nevertheless, Mr. Nemanich's final statement is ill-considered. I would hope, when future generations ask how things were in the past--regardless of who ruled and how, regardless of how benighted or enlightened we had been as a people--we could always tell our children things are much better now.
It saddens me to picture Bob Nemanich, grandchildren on his knee, learning his particular form of racism for an entire subculture. (White men) just for kicks try adding black or Hispanic to the last line of Bobs letter. Ii would never have been published. Funny how many on the left wrap their prejudices in a cocoon of justified self worth. Teach your children well Bob.

It never ceases to amaze how so many on the left wrap themselves in reverse racism and disguise it as enlightenment. Teach your children well Bob.

As long as I have lived in Colorado Springs -- 25 years -- John Daly called for the sale of Memorial Hospital. His persistence was rewarded with its sale -- a transaction with which I am still not comfortable, especially as the city bait-and-switched PERA to make the sale more digestible.
Utilities is a far different asset to this community. All you have to do is watch "The Smartest Guys in the Room" to see how a corrupt entity like Enron manipulates energy markets.
And, yes, it can happen here.
Re: Power to consumers
This is exactly what Pena wrote in the Denver Post: "Providing a smart meter to customers without providing them with the dynamic prices the meters allow them to respond to is like trying to clap with one hand."
I believe Mr. Daly is under the impression that the "dynamic prices" are the result of opening up "access to competitive markets for electricity."
The two are not related. The "dynamic prices" Pena wants to provide consumers is a rate structure that will charge more for electricity consumed during peak generation hours, and less during off-hours. Currently the rate for electricity is flat regardless of the time of day or day of the week when the electricity is consumed.
This rate structure can be implemented even under the current "outdated regulated monopoly model for electricity" as long as current meters are replaced by new smart meters, but IMHO the "benefits" are dubious.
