The GOP (Grab others Private Parts) is a disaster. Dumber than rocks!
In some places. This is El Paso County, Colorado. The Party tells you what to think and how to vote and who to vote for.
I thought that the entire point of allowing people to vote was so they could make a personal choice without conditions or consequences,regardless of their political affiliations. I thought the rules applied to everyone
Doesnt anyone realize that wildfires used to keep our forests healthy. Nature could take care of itself just fine. The only reason it is an issue is because nature being natural is inconvenient for people.
Somebody has got to pay for the SDS pipeline and it won't be Jenkins or Anschutz.
I am not so sure, Mr Comb-Over Rump - Klingenschmidt got elected and that one commissioner seems to get re-elected whenever she runs. And Lamborn.
Glenn should lose by a significant margin!
Thanks for posting this information. I'm a member of the Colorado Judicial Performance Commission and it is great information about the excellent work of all the JPCs, state and local, is getting out to voters!
I'm still confused as what pumping iron and running up hills has anything at all to do with the job of being a Senator?
There were so many gut busting laugh out loud moments while watching this hilarious ego fest that I nearly passed out. But the most ironic and deeply perplexing moment came when Glenn spoke about wanting to address the issues between the African-American community and local police, mentioning "..driving while black"; to my knowledge, Glenn has done little to zero outreach in minority communities across Colorado. Glenn's base has been overwhelming white, Tea Party/ultra conservative Christians, and aside from having Senator Tim Scott (R/SC) appear at one Glenn's rally's, I have not seen or heard about any other prominent African Americans supporting Glenn.
I don't know who was the target audience for this ad, but it highly entertaining for all the wrong reasons.
My understanding is that laws like this are to prevent vote buying. If I'm paying you to vote a certain way, I may request photographic evidence of the deed before paying up.
IMO, freedom of speech trumps such concerns.
As worthy of disdain as some people may find selfies, there's a legitimate issue here. It's a shame the Independent has taken a position of mockery.
...... AND our corrupt CSU along with Anshutz puppet Mayor Suthers wants to GIVE a RESERVOIR to the Broadmoor to water their Golf Courses, while golf is declining nationally. Rosemont Reservoir is 2541 Acre feet, could easily be hooked up to the Mesa treatment plant to create another potable water supply for us. Thornton pays from $15,000 to $25,000 per acre foot for water. Let's see how corrupt CSU and Suthers are giving our assets (Rosemont Reservoir and Strawberry Fields ) to "THE BULLY OF THE BROADMOOR" , greedy Anshutz !! Watch the documentary "Killing the Colorado" to see how CSU killed the town of Crowley CO .
Yup - no water = no food...pretty much the case in a good part of the world. It's this disparity that we need to be concerned about because it is this dynamic that leads to violence and dictatorial governance. We live in abundance.
The trouble here in the dry part of Colorado is that we can still "borrow" water from our more fortunate western slope residents. The real trouble for us here in the land of milk and honey is there's too much slop in the trough (a direct quote from my VA shrink). We won't see the need to make tough decisions until we're affected personally (my cynical demon says to say ' we don't care if our neighbor's yard goes brown, as long as we can keep the golf course green at someone else's expense - that's why we live in a condo).
That's an accurate observation, Mr Gentry...but how do we minimize the damage for the rest of mankind? I espouse no religion or faith, but I do have a pressing need to do SOMETHING to keep this from being a Malthusian disaster.
BTW, I 'liked' your response - it's the hard truth of nature. Solutions from anyone?
No water will resolve the population overshoot in short order!
The real point is that the next major international conflicts, somewhere in the not too distant future, will be about water, just as they were in the old west. Already about a third (or more) of the world's population is without clean drinking water and sanitary facilities, and that number grows daily. Population overshoot.
I only have to do that when I'm siphoning gas out of your car...lol!
OK. Don't drink the gasoline at convenience stores even though it's cheaper.
longtooth, it might have been the excessive drought of substantive ideas, like the drought that killed trees on my property in the recent past...they were infected with parasitic insects - kind of like the Republican garden.
Water is already more expensive than gasoline at the convenience stores...
that's the cost of not living by a major water source. no river or reservoir to draw from so must find water long distances away. most of the water we do get is pretty damn awesome though.
I read an HP blog that said the GOP was soiled their own garden for so many years that it left itself open to an invasive species. Donald Trump.
