Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

mr.b:

Don't rule it out yet. He's only in his first week of stupendous incompetence.

Thank God President Trump is not an F.D.R. style liberal Democrat, or we would be rounding up folks based on nationality and jailing them in internment camps.

Lamborn says, "Now is not a time for division fueled by dishonesty and partisan politics..." In that case, he ought to keep his mouth shut.

Re: “UPDATE: AFA agrees to pay $25,000 to settle FOIA lawsuit

I have no issues with your first paragraph Melissa.. it's just hard to squeeze all that into a comment. I'd take issue with your 2nd paragraph though. Only 1 in 4 registered voters voted for the Dominionist candidate (and current President). Were the situation as you suggest, it would have been a landslide. The fact that it wasn't is a hopeful sign. That said, if you haven't seen it, read this: "I Was Trained for the Culture Wars in Home School, Awaiting Someone Like Mike Pence as a Messiah" [https://www.autostraddle.com/i-was-trained-for-the-culture-wars-in-home-school-awaiting-someone-like-mike-pence-as-a-messiah-367057/]... scary as hell (yeah, I know, another mythological 'bogey man').

Re: “UPDATE: AFA agrees to pay $25,000 to settle FOIA lawsuit

I agree, except for the "secular democracy" part. We are in fact a "Secular, Constitutional Republic with Democratic leanings" (and unfortunately right now, also a Plutocracy).

If we were a true Democracy, we would already be destroyed by the Dominionists, their hard sought after "Biblical Law" would have been the law of the land already. This resulting of course in a renaissance of the Dark Ages and the rebirth of the plague and all manner of suffering and loss.

I love America's secular framework, it tries to keep us safe from the worst of the ideas in that #FilthyBook ! <3

Re: “Lamborn reintroduces Broadmoor bill

Okay, Tannim. Id like to trade my 1/3 acre on the northeast side for 100 sq. ft. in the center of the Broadmoor Hotel Lobby. Sounds like great math to me!!!

Re: “UPDATE: AFA agrees to pay $25,000 to settle FOIA lawsuit

Well! The rule of law still exists somewhere, if not at the AFA. The AFA's years-long refusal to follow the FOIA laws makes it pretty evident that they knew they had things they needed to keep from the light of day. Now perhaps some sunshine will help a badly needed cleaning process. Sadly, while our government's processes are supposedly 'apolitical', in reality they're not. Funding priorities, egos, greed, and a host of other considerations play into what are supposed to be processes governed solely by the best 'public interests' of a secular democracy. The AFA's long-term overt & covert support of radical Christian domionists (the equivalent of Islam's radical fundamentalist Islamic State sect) has been the target of Mikey & MRFF since it's ugly head was first raised. Now, perhaps, we'll get a look at how deep the rot's gotten.

Re: “Colorado Springs council district has a high minority population

Thanks.

It is interesting that we so often are in a position to have to select who we feel might be the 'less dangerous' candidate rather than be torn between two or three exceptionally well qualified candidates!

Re: “Colorado Springs council district has a high minority population

The question to ask is 'who do you WANT to prevail?'. While Gaebler favors giving tax dollars to Norwood for millions of dollars of infrastructure in the Banning Lewis Ranch development, compared to Crow-Iverson - the chosen of City Leaders - Gaebler is the less dangerous candidate. But I don't live in District 5 and so don't have to make this choice.

Skorman is a successful businessman who has built a retail enterprise that provides multiple benefits to the community. He genuinely cares about what's good for COS and is not a bought- and-paid for puppet of City Leaders. In spite of disagreeing with some of his positions on social issues, if I lived in District 3, I would vote for him.

Thanks for asking.

Re: “Colorado Springs council district has a high minority population

Curious

Assuming the voters in Dist #4 continue to support their council member, Ms. Collins and that will not even be a tight race - two others look like real battles - who do you think will prevail in Dist #3 (Fowler vs Skorman) and Dist #5 (Gaebler vs. Crow-Iverson)?

Re: “Colorado Springs council district has a high minority population

Collins reelection campaign is not supported by City Leaders or by CSF and other crony capitalist groups. This lack of support by the elites is a good thing. She is beholden to no one but the constituents in her district. She is disliked only because she is a friend of Doug Bruce and a fiscal conservative, the lone voice on the Council opposed to giving tax dollars to millionaire developers. Not only should Collins be reelected, but others just like her should be on the COuncil instead of the crony-capitalist politicians chosen by millionaire developers. COS not only needs Collins, but more like her to represent the citizens.

Re: “Colorado Springs council district has a high minority population

Ms. Collins was elected by the voters in her district.

Ms. Collins was re-elected by the voter in her district.

Ms. Collins was supported in the Hendrix led recall by the voters in her district.

Ms. Collins seems to be doing well by her constituents.

Mr. TruB: in which district do you live?

Re: “Trinity Brewing insults Colorado Springs, social-media responds with fury

Jason Yester lacks a moral compass. I have personally seen how he treats his staff and patrons and I am shocked when I see bodies in there at all anymore. Over priced food, comments to you as a customer if you order "too many guest taps" and not the "owners brews", and I personally watched him pay employees below minimum wage and verbally degrade them while he sits for 8-12 hrs, at his bar drinking with an increasingly foolish looking stupor that intensifies with each beer he guzzles down; and smelling as if he had not showered in days. I'm all for living you're own life, but I prefer not to smell the body odor of a business owner when I frequent their business to consume food. Personally and professionally, Jason Yester appears to believe he is superior to those he interacts with. My choice to stop supporting Trinity with my money and my patronage may not close his doors today, but I will be glad when he relocates to Denver. I have never seen such lack of moral and ethical values in a "supposed" grass roots, locally owned business...or its owner.

Re: “More on mPACT, the local federal action coalition

I'd be suspicious of mPact because Sally Clark is a member and as a BoCC member she is helping give them money. So couldn't she explain what they do or are they tied to springs forward or some other GOP lobby group?

Re: “Middle school can be cheesy

Oh, this story made me burst into tears (don't know why am I so sensitive))
Unfortunately, I cannot state, that any of my school teachers enjoyed learning others like you. That's why maybe I started supporting a bit essay writing services, and write reviews on them in my http://essaygoddess.com/">blog.
