Re: “Local students protest Trump

Miss Maggie If you think for a second all this talk of rebuilding America is going to be cheap and benefit you then your the one hunting Unicorns. Corporations have made way to much money on Globalization to allow the clock to turn back now. I think you as well as plenty others have fallen into the same Political trap. Obama care or the ACA was a starting point. The Dems went to far and the Republicans sat on there butts and did nothing allowing it to go bat shit nuts. For 8 years they havent put together anything while the others piled on a bunch of crap. Its political hogwash. What we had before didnt work, what we have now costs to much because it covers to much and whats being thrown out there is just going to make matters worse. You raise cane over Government health care. You dont want them telling you how to run your health care but yet your willing to allow a corporation do it that only cares about one thing a profit. Do you really think for a second those corporations are going to lower prices because you buy it Kansas or Texas? Its the same company in a different state just less coverage for the same price then tell you its better. All the States that didnt take the ACA are still paying those huge prices. So how do think your going to save money? What needed to be done is allow Past illness coverage, major medical and basic coverage for all. But no that wouldnt have been political. The left had to add boner pills and pregnancy pills and the right just sat there with there thumbs in there butts. Now the Insurance Corporations have made major profits both on and off the exchange and there not going to give up them profits no matter where you buy it. Watch and see.

Re: “Local students protest Trump

Obamacare is nothing but a participation trophy for the underachievers.

You can whine all you want, obamacare is hitting the middle class in the pocketbook and all those freebies Obama gave out will begin to expire this year. It will get worse now. Rates and especially penalties will skyrocket starting in 2017. It's planned that way. It was the carrot for a singlepayer system you Socialists want to badly. The same one Colorado voters said a big NO at the booth 2 weeks ago.

So keep telling yourself that Obamacare is wonderful and unicorns still exist, the rest of us will be finishing what Obama could never figure out how to do, we will be rebuilding America, because that's what real men and women do.

Re: “Local students protest Trump

I totally agree with you Rocky, a lot of promises made but not much on how they will accomplish this and I doubt the GOP will, but its up to Congress to fix ACA now after 6 years of stalling, all so the GOP could take credit away from President Obama. And who is going to feel the pain of this transition? The people of America. My roomie voted for Trump even though she worries about her daughter who is white and her boyfriend who is black and their mix-raced children, they are on Obama Care and will now suffer for her Moms vote. Stupidity to the max!!!

Re: “Local students protest Trump

Heres what I see coming. Interest rates raise as promised so the housing market will take a hit. Health care overhaul so a bunch of people will be without again and prices wont change just keep going up. Piss off all the trade partners set up by both parties and the price of goods will go through the roof. Dont forget we have no manufacturing here anymore and the corporations wont bring it back if theres no money to spend on it weather or not regulations lower. They may bring there banking back but there not going to build factories again there wont be no extra money in it. Build that wall and try to redo NAFTA and guess what will happen. A bunch of our manufacturing is down there now because of NAFTA. Who is going to pay for that Wall? We will with higher prices for goods. Piss off the middle east and see what happens to oil prices. You may think we have enough of our own but Corporations are in charge of it. Piss off China and all the goods that Americans enjoy will sky rocket. Do you really think a tire, TV, tooth brushes or steal will ever be manufactured here again? Cut taxes by 30% as promised. Then how the hell do you pay for the infastructure projects that have been promised? Not to mention rebuilding our cities after they get tore up by the minorities hes pissed off. Or the hit our debt is going to take. Remember that debt all the Republicans have hollered about for the last 16 years and blamed the Dems for? Ill be the first to admit Mrs. Clinton was a horrible choice way to much baggage way to much. But I dont see how Trumps idea of taking us back to the industrial age is going to work without starving us first. Global commerce has gone on for to long and Russia is just waiting for us to fall thats why the backed him. The change that was needed is in Congress. Yes he promised that with term limits but dont forget Congress is in charge of Congress and they will never give up there own cash cow. Hold on folks this could be one hell of a ride.

Re: “Local students protest Trump

I, too, believe the prediction to be accurate, but the GOP has set themselves up for the perfect designated survivor situation to occur, and with our luck, the MORON Ben Carson would be the only one left to run the government. To leave you with a bit of bittersweet humor that I saw on FB, Now that Trump has been elected as President, we are all waiting for Aston Kutcher to pop out and say we all just got punked.

Re: “Local students protest Trump

Prediction professor who called Trumps big win also made another forecast: Trump will be impeached

I'm going to make another prediction, he said. This one is not based on a system, it's just my gut. They don't want Trump as president, because they can't control him. He's unpredictable. They'd love to have Pence an absolutely down the line, conservative, controllable Republican. And I'm quite certain Trump will give someone grounds for impeachment, either by doing something that endangers national security or because it helps his pocketbook.…

Re: “Local students protest Trump

So the same generation that loved "The Hunger Games" books and movies now wants to get rid of the electoral college? Talk about a lack of critical thinking skills. And this is the real problem with participation trophies, you have to learn how to lose when you are a child. Great job public school system, you have created an entire generation of entitled people that now have to learn how to lose much later in life.

Re: “Opinion: Manitou Springs' war on hikers

Calling the majority of people who use the incline "hikers" strains credibility. Actual hikers in Colorado will yield to others who are hiking uphill, respect rules regarding dogs, wear appropriate footwear for hiking, and not travel in large groups carrying on loud conversations that can be heard hundreds of feet down the trail as if they were at the mall. Since so many incline users aren't able to comply with the signs at the Barr Trail lot and park elsewhere, the city should continue to raise the fee for this lot and give the rebate to those who go to Barr Camp. This is, after all, the Barr Trail parking lot, not the incline, Ute Pass, Cameron's Cone, Pike National Forest parking lot.

Re: “Local students protest Trump

Agree they proved how "smart" they are. They proved too why the preservation of our way of life depends on charter schools and vouchers to provide valid education to the next generation about how precious our form of republican govt is to the preservation of personal liberty and freedom. A lack of being taught about WHY America's founding fathers - rebels, every one of them - broke away from England, and a lack of knowledge about our Constitution and republican form of govt results in the production of educated dimwits. The People are fed up with the political status quo. The People are fed up with surrendering our sovereignty. The People are fed up with socialist policies. And that's why Trump, regardless of his politically incorrect comments, was elected President.

Good for them. They proved how smart they are, so maybe not all is lost. Let them go forth and be our future! Unlike the porrly educated who voted for bluster and empty promises over substance.

Re: “Mountain Fold Books announces closure

I hate that this is happening! The Springs DIY book culture scene is pretty tint, and now it's probably done for good. I'd be curious if something can be done to help them recover and raise funds to get them going again.
This is why we can't have nice things.
