Re: “Green Party presidential hopeful comes to Colorado

Jill is visiting Colorado Springs because voters deserve to learn about all possible choices for POTUS. This presents a historic opportunity being that Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton are the most disliked candidates in history.

Keep in mind that there are also 118,934 unaffiliated active members and thousands of inactive voters who didn't vote during the last general election, more than likely because neither candidate excited them! Also, while El Paso County only has 911 registered Greens, I was still able to earn 11,264 votes when I ran for County Commissioner District 2 in 2012 on the Green Party ticket. Clearly, it DOES make sense for Jill to visit COS.

We cannot have a real debate about politics if some voices are silenced or left out. We invite all who do not feel represented by Clinton or Trump to join us!

Re: “Green Party presidential hopeful comes to Colorado

Update. There are now only 8,611 registered Greens in Colorado. As of yesterday I changed my registration from Green to Democratic. I can no longer in, good conscience, support divisive crackpots who call America's first black president an "Uncle Tom." So please, count me out.

Re: “Bible removed from desk at Peterson AFB

Rose White it is opened to Philippians 2:16.

The rule seems open for interpretation and not very cut and dry. I think that saying the presence of a book is sending a message is over the top however I have worked places where the contents of a cube area were reduced to allowing a family photo to reduce the chances of someone being offended.

I think that people are over sensitive and a person who is feeling offended also has to have tolerance to others beliefs. Especially when they are not preaching or proselytizing. Once command said they would look into the issue it should have been done swiftly and settled. I don't necessarily like that Mr. Weinstein can't work quietly with the the base personnel. I also think those commenting as being pro bible haven't been very polite in voicing their disapproval that a bible may not belong on a Military office.

Re: “He's baa-aack! Mike Miles appointed to charter school board.

I am not sure about keeping my daughter at PPP where he is now the new CEO!! My 14 year old flourished last year skipping the last 3 semesters of 8th grade, straight A's maybe 1 B and going straight into 9th grade..passed her summer course of 9th grade biology with a 92% only to start 10th grade on Tuesday with rude & military style of staff!!! Kids, even high schooler have to raise their hands to be excused from the table, escorts to the bathroom & no drinking water when walking through the school!! I mean come on!!! My daughter is not a problem child or is she disruptive in class, but when she comes home in tears something is wrong!!! I am very disappointed in myself for not paying more attention to who is coming into our school districts! I take pride in my child's academics, but I will not stand by and have my child treated in this way....hell have no fury like a mother being pissed off at the way her child is being treated!!!!!

Your 911 dollars has not increased staffing in call centers. Go to the El Paso Teller E911 site and look...

What about the irony of a walking dead lesbian being offended too?

Re: “Bible removed from desk at Peterson AFB

Conservative Christians are just too RELIGIOUS!!! When I was in a Pentecostal ministry as a missionary in the '80s, we were told that when we were at work we were to honor our employer and do the best work we could as our witness of Christ in our lives. Since when do Christians feel it is there right to bring their religion to work??? I just don't get it when it is very clear in Ephesians not to do this because you are being paid to work not witness.

Re: “CO voters will decide on at least four initiatives

ColoradoCare is our chance to remedy the cruel, expensive way we currently pay for our healthcare through the big insurance companies.

The ColoradoCare plan that will be on the November ballot will:
- cover every Coloradan, with no deductibles
- allow every Coloradan to freely choose their doctor
- be a plan designed, owned and controlled by the citizens of Colorado
- paid for by a simple payroll tax just like Medicare
- eliminate waste, profits and politics from our healthcare
- cover 96% of the costs you incur for healthcare
- break the connection between your employer and your healthcare

If these things scare you, see a psychiatrist. If you want secure healthcare that isn't controlled by the big insurance companies, learn more about ColoradoCare and vote for it in November.

You hit the nail on the head. Thanks for the sharing, I also found a useful service for forms filling. I mostly use http://goo.gl/ierjII to edit my PDFs. I think it also allows you to to create fillable pdfs and esign them.

Re: “Today is Taco Tuesday at Urban Steam

The drinks are good, but the tacos are the worst! Dont waste your money on the tacos here, there are several things urban steam does well, tacos are not one of them. Jose Muldoon's is much better for the price.

Re: “CO voters will decide on at least four initiatives

69: No! The ACA is a tire-fire from inception through it's partial implementation, and since when can the gov't force the citizenry to purchase a private good, commodity and/or service under penalty-of-law--and why would you grant them that kind of power?

Minimum-wage: No! The negatives far outweigh any positives, and if you don't like your current employment status and/or wage structure, develop a better skill set and core competencies and invest in your education so that you're a more valuable and marketable employee, current or potential.

Medical aid in dying: Yes! End-of-life decisions such as this are best left to individuals who know their individual circumstances and what suits them best, up to and including accepted personal euthanasia.

Constitution amendment: Yes! More gov't interference and intrusion is abhorrent--we currently are drowning in regulation and micro-management of our lives--but the irony that reigning in legislation requires this type of initiative isn't lost on me.

No matter your take on the issues, get out and vote, esp. if you're sensible enough to realize that Gary Johnson is the only logical, rational, sensible candidate running for the Presidency this cycle!

Re: “UPDATE: Rain barrels now legal. Here's what to know.

I did the math by comparing the savings of a rainbarrel to my last water bill. If we got "up to 1200" gallons one year, I would save a grand total of $26. Not worth it to me.
