The GOP (Grab others Private Parts) is a disaster. Dumber than rocks!

Re: “Political activist asked to resign for not endorsing GOP candidate

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.

Re: “Political activist asked to resign for not endorsing GOP candidate

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

Re: “Colorado State Forest Service: Use more local wood

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.

Re: “Who has the highest water rates in Colorado?

Somebody has got to pay for the SDS pipeline and it won't be Jenkins or Anschutz.

Re: “Glenn pumps iron in campaign ad

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.

Re: “How will you vote on judges?

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!

Re: “Glenn pumps iron in campaign ad

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.

Re: “State lawmaker files suit over ballot selfies

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.

Re: “Who has the highest water rates in Colorado?

...... 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 .

Re: “Who has the highest water rates in Colorado?

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!

Re: “Who has the highest water rates in Colorado?

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.

OK. Don't drink the gasoline at convenience stores even though it's cheaper.

Re: “At Springs rally, proud 'deplorables' confident in their losing candidate's prospects

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.

Re: “Who has the highest water rates in Colorado?

Water is already more expensive than gasoline at the convenience stores...

Re: “Who has the highest water rates in Colorado?

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.
