Re: “Bad reflection on our city

Please don't forget that at least one of those "old white men" is actively trying to provide some transparency, as well as listen to the citizens. We would do well to discard the labels and evaluate each council person individually.

Also, did creating a highly salaried position give us the Mayor we need? I'd say, no on both counts so far. I can't see providing a higher salary for council until they outline what is expected of them (vs. what was expected when it was initially determined that this is a part time position).

Re: “Colorado officials broadcast an inconsistent message on legal marijuana measures

He's being paid to say negative things about mj legalization
More Coloradans favor legalization now than when the law passed.

Re: “Second Amendment’s hits, myths

The National Rifle Association was created in 1871 and until about 1970 was apolitical, only becoming a lobby when forced to do so by the active attacks on the right to self-defense and the means to defend life.
No attempt to repeal the Second Amendment has been proposed in Congress except for a few really radical lawmakers. Their proposals never got to a vote because only about ten states would ratify such an amendment.
But this has not prevented many local laws banning certain or even all firearms during the past fifty years.
When I joined the NRA over 50 years ago, an oath was required, to support the Constitution. A person also needed a sponsor to join, a judge, police officer, military officer or another NRA member. These requirements were struck down by a law suit that claimed it was discrimination.
The NRA supports all of the Bill of Rights and all of the Constitution. The NRA has an elected Board of Directors that includes men and women, and all races.
The NRA has always supported "reasonable" firearms laws. The argument is about what is reasonable and effective at controlling the dangerous individuals. Ultimately, the only protection is having the possibility of armed defense at every potential point of attack. Since to properly guard the 10, 20,000 schools and school students in the United States would require at least 1,000,000 armed police officers doing nothing but guarding the schools, in addition to the officers now enforcing traffic, parking, and other duties.
The simple fact is the USA would have to become a Police State if total security is demanded. We cannot afford this financially and nor can freedom survive if we are a police state with a cop on every corner and in each hallway and floor in every school.

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.

Re: “Strawberry Fields headed for court, again

"...sounds like a term Podesta would use to make excuses for Donna Brazile,"--sounds like a taunt Trump would use to make excuses for his shameless dependence on Vladimir Putin.

Re: “Strawberry Fields headed for court, again

Ad hominem was issued by you, sir..."misconceptions created by your assertions." What I pointed out was your failure to tell the whole story. That would be ad factum.

Re: “Strawberry Fields headed for court, again

Did not forget, Mr. Miller. Mr. Cox was indeed the City Manager, interim or not. ad hominem statements about me are not really necessary. I admit to my part in this endeavor and make no excuses.

Re: “Strawberry Fields headed for court, again

And by "clearing up," you mean to deceive readers by stating that it was the "City Manager" in charge of 2/3 of the Title Board? Certainly you knew she had resigned and was replaced in the interim by none other then Bach's future Chief of Staff, Steve Cox--one more guy that benefited immensely from the strong mayor. Guess you must have forgotten that one, Kevin.

"Misconceptions created by your assertions" sounds like a term Podesta would use to make excuses for Donna Brazile. Please show how the complete lack of checks and balances in the form of government you orchestrated is a "misconception."
