Re: “Election Edition 2/24/15

Is it not ironic that convicted felon, Doug Bruce, who is now also being accused of money laundering, is suddenly so concerned with following the law?

And that's the most polite way I can put that...

Re: “Welcome to Kolorado, Klan Kountry

My grandfather, Gerome Torribio, was a first generation Italian immigrant living in Trinidad during the 1920s. One day the Klan marched downtown where he worked in a hardware store. He spotted the mayor in the parade, and called out, "Hey, Mayor, why are you hiding in that bedsheet? I know you from your worn-out brown shoes!" That night, the Klan burned a cross on the top of Simpson's Rest behind his house. That's a family story we are proud of--thanks for this article.

Re: “Why Snake Oil Kills Cards Against Humanity

@Daniel: I've heard people bring up the Big Idea in context of Snake Oil, but I've never seen the game myself.

@Ryan: Exploding Kittens is another one I'll be passing on...

@Stephen: Nice!

@Jay: We got ours at It's Your Move at Chapel Hills. Also available on Amazon, I believe...

Re: “Local company takes on, Cannabis Cup approaches, more

Here is a Marijuana Travel Guide and Information site. I find it useful, as do others. I agree this site stinks... no pun intended.

Re: “NAACP bombing arrest made

Now the News stations have reported that the accountant hasn't been in that office for over 10 years and that he died last October... so how the hell would he have this dude's paperwork from 2006?
And why aren't they charging him with attempted murder if there were people in the building at the time of the bombing??? Letting this dude off easy when it is very apparent to be a Hate Crime!

Re: “Sue sentenced

If parents would be more active in their child's lives, then children like Isaac Grimes, would have shared more with their parents instead of being afraid to talk to them about the evil that is the essence of Simon Sue, especially if he was afraid of Simon, as he should have trusted in the fact that his parents are his protectors, not vice versa. And he wouldn't have had as much time to spend with Simon as he would have spent more time doing father-son activities, like fishing, bowling, camping, etc. And he could have gone to the police, but he wanted to be a thief and killer, no doubt in my mind. Instead of asking the judge for mercy, I think Isaac's parents should take responsibility for their son's actions and be allowed to lessen Isaac's sentence by serving time alongside their son. Let them put their money where their mouths are, so to speak. Let them each serve 20 years and Isaac can be freed. I'd be happy with that. But they wouldn't, even if it was offered to them, because they were too selfish to be good parents.

Re: “Boo hoo for Hogan Lovells

It's disappointing that given all the business and life experience they all have, only one Mayoral candidate mentioned using a Request for Proposal process to select a "best value" law firm, in a fair way, using facts and sound judgment along with price. This is a requirement for all City and Utilities contracts exceeding $10k. Why is nobody asking why Bach and his crew didn't follow that procurement rule? And why do the other candidates apparently not know about this common sense process that is a requirement. Get ready for more of the same!!!

Re: “Grocer X: Smart shopping carts are useless

I don't know anything about your problem with smart carts but I think you are too pessimistic. We have just started a smart cart project with a international
retail chain and I am pretty sure we will have success. I won't mention a name but I am sure you going to hear about us in the press.

Re: “Dogs and guns, government watchdogs, cuts at Carson, and more

“Tote”: to carry, wield, or convey (something heavy or substantial).
I’m so sorry Mr. Wyman, that you find dictionary words so offensive, but that’s not my problem. My wife totes a purse. Students are book toters.
And, by the time you get around to objecting to my word “toter”, you’ve already called me a “socialist” and a “bigot” . . . and you object to MY name calling?
And then demeaning business owners as “merely someone that owns a business” demonstrates YOUR low regard of business owners. It seems to me that YOU are the person who wishes to limit the rights of business owners. Then you turn your attention to your hatred of “our ever burgeoning economy choking government”. Ok, we get it. You hold business owners in low regard, and hate government. What’s new?
And I have no more power to “create government” than you do.
I put the word “rights” into quotations when they are mistaken for privileges. You indeed have a right to bear arms, but to hide it in your armpit is a PRIVILEGE granted by the state. There is NOTHING in the Second Amendment that gives you a “right” to carry concealed.
Then you descend into a rant about Socialism that has nothing to do with concealed carry OR the Second Amendment. (BTW, Socialism is an economic model that can work perfectly well within our own Constitutional government.)
That I “do not like firearms” is an ignorant personal attack as I am a gun owner. (And before you take offense . . . “ignorant”: lacking knowledge, information, or awareness about something in particular.)
And, apparently, you really believe that your privilege to carry a concealed gun trumps the rights of everybody else. But in no way have you refuted my contention: “If gun advocates insist upon their “right” to carry a firearm, the citizenry and business owners should insist upon their “right” to know it.”
But your most TELLING question is: “how can you be frightened and so concerned about something that you cannot see and only imagine is or is not present?” To that I can only answer: I am NOT the person who is compelled to carry a hidden firearm. What are YOU frightened of? Perhaps, it is you who is fearful of “something that you cannot see and only imagine is or is not present”? For what other reason are you carrying concealed? A wild boar attack?
Again, carrying concealed should once again be illegal in Colorado.
Is your last sentence a veiled threat?

Re: “Keeping recalls weird

The independent (which in no way can be described as independent OR a newspaper) always tags Doug Bruce with "anti-tax activist" and makes it and him sound sinister. Similar to someone exercising their Fifth Amendment Rights on a television show or movie. The viewer knows the character is guilty and "taking the Fifth" is as bad as saying a suspect "lawyer-ed up". Amazing how the phrasing of something can alter the view of the basis of our free country. Your Rights are viewed by authorities as a nuisance and many citizens feel we do not need Rights or they should be adjusted out "common sense". I know very few that have or practice "common sense". The American Revolution fought by those old long forgotten colonists was about taxation. Doug Bruce has been attacked by government for authoring a tax bill that passed called TABOR. The Taxpayer's Bill of Rights (TABOR) Amendment, took away government's unlimited power to tax citizens without their consent! Government has been harassing Bruce ever since while the indy and its "writers" show Bruce the same disrespect. So we know that The Independent and Hazelhurst et al want to pay more tax because they want to and want us all to as well. The way they refer to Bruce it would seem so.
It is just manipulation and phrasing is important. Ever hear a cop ask to search when he has no cause or warrant? He will say, "If you have nothing to hide you have nothing to fear". He is trying to get you to give up your Rights. The Bill of Rights is all you have. I suggest you all ignore this media manipulation, seek out the truth for yourself and hang on to your Rights. Too many have erroneous beliefs created by media and the tags, phrases and the frenzies they create. I would also suggest visiting and learn something. He is not what you read in the indy. I do not know him and have talked to him once on the phone. He was a bit gruff just so you know I am not promoting anything other than Rights and fairness.
