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

Good to hear Bill W... Maybe there is hope for this country after all.

mr.b:

Thanks for your sincere concern. However, I don't take medical, musical or political advice from strangers.

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

Mr K,

I brought up F.D.R because he is the god of all things liberal. Trump's policies on almost every matter echo that of F.D.R almost exactly. So it seems as if he is acting like a Democrat, or maybe just a spoiled 1 percenter, Trump and F.D.R. do have that in common as well.

Have you ever considered that both parties are working for the same corporate sponsors?

The propaganda that this country is reacting to in such a polarizing way is absurd and designed by the corporate elite to divide and conquer.

Stay angry and prejudiced against your fellow citizens, stick to your own little club and never deviate from the opinions they assign you. You make an excellent sheep Mr.K.

Good job cherry picking though. I list F.D.R, Carter, Bush and Obama as having similar policies, and you only see Bush.

The joke was funny to me; still is.... I tend to think for myself though and wasn't looking for your approval. You are not the decider in chief when it comes to my thoughts.

Keep drinking the Kool-aide Mr.K, it's good fuel for your misplaced anger.

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

$25,000 would have paid for 208 days of record searching, at $15/hour. Maybe the AFA should have just provided what was requested instead of stalling.

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

If you need to explain the punchline, mr.b, the joke is a failure. If the immigration ban "is really more along the lines of the Carter, Bush and Obama bans..." then why did you have to reach way back to World War II to find your absurd analogy? Furthermore, if Putin's lackey is acting like Bush, how is that "acting like a Democrat?" In other words, mr.b, your post is neither funny nor logical.

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

Bill:

That was an attempt at a little humor.... The punchline is that after only one week in office he is already acting like a Democrat.

Trump's ban is really more along the lines of the Carter, Bush and Obama bans of the recent past; however, Trump's looks to be significantly shorter.

Keep your anger focused, take your soma (it will help with the paranoia), and await further instructions from Madonna....

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?
