Re: “Noted: Still no help for inactive voters

This is a comment we received from Mikey Weinstein of the Military Religious Freedom Foundation regarding the visit of Ret. Gen. Patrick Gamble to the Air Force Academy:

"The Military Religious Freedom Foundation (MRFF) declares Gamble's "window-dressing survey team" as absolutely DOA; Dead On Arrival. Why? Because if this is not a genuine INVESTIGATION conducted by totally impartial, outside, aggressive and experienced investigators, especially given the egregious severity and historical numbers of Constitutional religious violations at the Air Force Academy, then this event never had a pulse of life to begin with. Further, the Pentagon has already stated that the marching orders for Gamble and his team of three fellow travelers is to ONLY take a "subjective look at the overall climate at USAFA relating to FREE EXERCISE OF RELIGION". Sadly, THAT myopic analysis is the very CORE of the fundamentalist Christian abusive disgrace at USAFA. The First Amendment has TWO clauses relating to religious freedom; the aforementioned Free Exercise Clause and "that other clause"; the one USAFA brutally and viciously violates with arrogant impunity, the No Establishment Clause. USAFA's train-wreck, long history of Constitutionally-violative religious oppression has ALWAYS sprung from it's blatant violations of the No Establishment Clause and NOT the Free Exercise Clause. The Air Force and Gamble are intent on barking up the putrescent, wrong tree. One must ask why? It is clear that neither Pentagon leadership nor Gamble and his small retinue of apparent rubber stampers have the slightest scintilla or even bare nuance of a clue as to the enormity of magnitude of the salient difference between these two seminal First Amendment clauses and how that makes ALL the difference at USAFA. Is this malfeasance or misfeasance? Does it even matter? It has been said that any sufficiently advanced incompetence is completely indistinguishable from malice. Ergo, MRFF pronounces the Gamble "assessment visit" as fatally flawed before it even arrives to inevitably confirm how superbly USAFA is following the Constitution on matters of religious freedom.Thus, without these imperative assurances that BOTH clauses of the First Amendment will be assiduously analyzed, MRFF will not produce a single of its 222 USAFA clients for Gamble's toothlessly flawed "survey team" to speak with!" Shame, shame on the Air Force yet once again."

Re: “Noted: DEA outlaws Spice

When will we learn that drug prohibition is absolutely futile especially in the case of k2 herb products? Not all of this k2 incense stuff is illegal. For instance, http://www.k2incense.org offers several products that are completely legal in all of the United States and even beyond. They are constantly reformulating it to get around these bans so people will continue to legally buy k2 products and I guess the big dogs will continue to waste money on chasing it down.

Re: “Noted: Weiss registers the Sun

Tancredo is all opportunist. He screwed the Reps and now turns his back on the ACP, expecting the Reps to take him back? That should be the end of his political career. No worries though .. I'm sure FOX News will find a place for him.

Tom Tancredo is opposed ILLEGAl IMMIGRATION. Your article states "opposition to immigration". There is a difference between immigration and ILLEGAL IMMIGRATION.

Re: “Noted: News from the state races


SDI pipeline for the Big Play acrage. The original ranch was about 11000 a. Mobile Oil subsidiary bought up surrounding land and pasted it to 23,000 a. (same Mobile that ranked hotels for business aminities).
The water pipepline finance costs for $2.8 billion (2.8 x 1000 million) will now be increased upon the extended completion date of 2016 ? How much is the actual footage
to this genius award? How does this compare to latest Interstate footage construction cost? Do you now assume that the Reservoir level and the withdrawal allotment allowed will be as it is now for full pipe capacity use out to theoretic payback? Do you
now expect a population will exist that will qualify for Baning-Lewis mortage, sufficient number of contracts to cover water-demand = pipeline payback? Ecetera ?

SDI is a centralized dedicated scheme. Not flexible distribution. Not ready to perform.
Not meaningful for new industry. Not meaningful for smart transport.

Re: “Noted: Jerald Day pleads insanity

I knew Day and from what I know and remember of him is that he's a good guy going through tough times. I agree, he should be suspended with pay until he has his day in court. I have no idea on why Jerry flipped, but it is unusually usual for the Maketa Mafia to stand behind him. That's mighty chivalrous of Maketa. From what I understand Day was going through trouble well long before this last incident. Their is also the "suspicion" of the Maketa-Day connection...that could be! Just remember folks, Maketa is losing all the political friends he had, look at Newsome...yeah that was a good friend to stand by! As time passes, the truth will be revealed about a lot of things from within that Office since Anderson left. But by then, no one will care and it will be just another SNAFU day in El Paso County, Colorado.

Re: “Noted: Traffic cameras will start to issue tickets


I think I know why cameras are allowed: Politicians - and their extended families - are immune to the tickets.

For example, in California 1.5 million private cars have plate numbers protected from easy look up, making them effectively invisible to agencies trying to process red light camera violations. (In CA the list includes local politicians, bureaucrats, retired cops, other govt. employees, and their families and adult children!) Someone should check to see how many, and who, are on the list in Colorado.

You'd think that all that would be needed to fix this inequity would be for the persons requiring protection of their home address to file their work address as the place for their tickets to be mailed to. Indeed, until August, there was a bill (AB 2097) in the Calif. legislature to do just that. But the politicians killed it - their excuse was that the cost of the paperwork involved in gathering and computerizing the work addresses was too great.

I urge everyone, everywhere, to call their legislators, their media, and their auto club about this class immunity from the tickets. Otherwise, the bureaucrats and politicians will keep laughing at us as we pay our fines.

Re: “Early voting starts Monday

This article's sub-title is incorrect. It states: "Three locations available for beating the Nov. 4 rush" but actually the Election day is November 2nd. The editor should gets his eyes checked if you didn't even notice something that simple.

Ed Billings Colorado Springs - Union Steward at King Sooper on Unitah

You should trade your on-line time attacking people for some volunteer time at The Marion House, or how about a little outreach. Instead you choose to verbally attack the CSPD HOT officer, Keep Colorado Springs Beautiful, the city council, and anyone who is involved with the homeless.

Re: “Noted: Sheriff sued by ACLU

That was a reply to the one at the bottom. As to a "strong mayor", considering the sheer number of Thieves who would apply for the job, like Doug Bruce, the proponent of the measure, the mathematical probability would work out to a certainty that within two decades a series of "strong mayors" would steal everything they haven't already stolen. Since there's nobody in City Politics who has a chance at being elected to any position, especially Mayor, without the backing of the Real Estate Developers and other local Houses of The Thieves Guild.

Re: “Noted: Sheriff sued by ACLU

Actually, that would be "homeless PEOPLE" who don't have to surrender their rights as citizens just because they're not in the Privileged Parasite Class.
I ride my bicycle because I can't drive, can't walk without a lot of pain, due to an on-the-job accident, and the pittance accorded to me by SSI doesn't cover the cost of a chauffeured limousine. That and I'm not "homeless". But thank you for your contribution to the mindset of Bigotry against those citizens, such as myself, who aren't Wealthy. Usually if I ride my bicycle downtown it's because I'm on my way to either my doctor or to my LANDLADY'S Doctor. Not that you would care, you're a card carrying member of the Anti-Working Class Jihad that infests the political arena in town here. (I checked)
Other people ride their bicycles because the bus service was cut drastically and they quite simply need to get to work on time so they can put money into the hands of the Wealthy Parasite Class.

Re: “Noted: Sheriff sued by ACLU

Does anyone realize that Bob Balink was Treasurer at Grace Episcopal Church when the Rev. Donald Armstrong was charged with using church funds for his own personal use (as in embezzlement)? The Armstrong case, by the way, has not yet gone to trial. And now Balink is running for city Treasurer. What's wrong with this picture?
