if you have the right to protect this country from turrorists .. try looking in the offices of elected officials ... those are the biggest turrorists which your programmed brain is unwilling to get around .. cognitive dissonance and stockholm syndrome aren't fictional concepts ..

Re: “Fire epidemic stems from Carson training

Accounting for all of these fires is extremely sketchy. In the one blamed on tank exhaust, Fort Carson originally stated that there was no training going on in the area of the fire. Otherwise it's a blanket "training" label with no specificity. If it were arson how would that be determined?

Re: “Trump made no sense — or friends — during Springs campaign stop

Thank you to those who tolerated the hateful comments and stood up against Trump's racist hate-mongering, showing by example that love for humanity is a better way. I have faith in humanity that we will rise up over this threat to democracy and diversity, but it deeply saddens me that racism is so openly expressed now, even children. Hard to put a lid on that kind of behavior once it's out there....

I know Electra personally and would trust her with my life. She would be a great representative--she is tough and smart and thinks deeply about ways to provide for the future while offering solutions for the present.

Re: “Darryl Glenn suddenly recalls a fight with his father that led to a criminal charge

Why is it that the Denver Post and the Indy can't stop themselves from wallowing in the details of an event that happened 32 years ago and which is nobody's business outside the Glenn family? The Gazette gave the answer to this baffling question in their editorial yesterday, titled "Media on witch hunt to get Darryl Glenn."

The Gazette notes that there is a double standard in reporting and editorializing on politicians. Case in point: Mark Udall was arrested for transporting amphetamines and marijuana when he was 21. His father, Mo Udall, the powerful Arizona congressman, intervened and the 2 felonies were plea bargained to a misdemeanor. Mark's car was permanently seized, he paid a fine, spent a night in jail, and got 6 months probation. The Denver Post was virtually mum when the facts - contradicting Mark's remembrances of the event - were made public. The Post conducted no investigative reports or condemnatory editorials re Udall. But re Glenn, the Post can't stop stirring the mud. The Gazette is right. Democrats get a wink and a nod and Republicans get tarred, feathered and run out of town.

Re: “Some Air Force Academy cadets never have a chance — and they leave feeling defeated

hadenoughofpam: Actually, this piece is an example of good journalism, although you apparently wouldn't recognize that genre if you saw it.

Is it one sided? I suppose so. But since the AFA declined her requests for their side, the Academy doesn't have anything to complain about.

Kids wash out of college all the time. Most of them don't get sent to a mental ward and get medicated in the process. That alone makes this story worth reading. So until the AFA can explain their procedures, I guess we're stuck with just one side of the story.

If you're looking for just positive stories about the AFA, you probably need to read the local daily paper. I'm pretty sure they cover the subjects you're looking for.

The comments reflect that they have not read the letter from the good sisters. You don't even have to believe in religion to heed good advice.

Re: “Some Air Force Academy cadets never have a chance — and they leave feeling defeated

This author Pam Zebeck hates USAFA and does not write anything about the academy unless it is hugely negative. She does her best to trash any and all activity at the USAFA. There are plenty positive to write about but she chooses none. Pam it's time you found any place to bully throw your venom. Life's too short to be so negative.

Re: “A look back at Trump's Springs visit

"The crowd, ... was overwhelmingly white and older." Much of them are on Medicare and Social Security - or hope to be. If they vote GOP their Medicare and Social Security will dwindle under Paul Ryan's "Better Way" and find themselves destitute in their old age. Retirees who vote GOP are cutting their own throat.

Re: “Trump's true colors, nurses for ColoradoCare, secrecy and the mayor, and more

Debra Avery and Gina Douglas-

I think this is hilarious. During the primaries, why didn't Clintonites come over to Bernie's side? We told you then that we couldn't vote for Clinton. Was it mutual on your side, or could you have voted for Bernie in a general election? I won't vote for HRC in the general, o well.

Don't worry about it though! If you all haven't realized it yet- our votes, our voices, our democracy- are all lost. We are going to keep paying taxes, work for the government for about 3 months every year, to support something we have no say in. I mean jeeze- we can't even fix the potholes in our city. We're out of the loop folks. Who knows what will happen. Assange claims he has even more damaging material on Hillary (As if rigging the primary election isn't enough)- Trump is imploding-- who knows?

to Tannim-

Yep, vote third party. I don't know if I'll vote for Johnson or Stein (funny predicament) - maybe I'll just draw an upside down flag on the ballot. I don't really see how we can withdraw from this predicament without simply refusing to except the premise. Dick Van Dyke was right with his endorsement of Bernie- "The Emperor wears no clothes". We better wake up to it quick

Actually, Tannim, I have 2 degrees already. I was more interested in the Army, anyways, but they tend to dislike bad knees. Many people who I have talked to seem to have hated the place, too.... except the white preppy kids from fairly well-off families.. they seemed to be drastically different in their appreciation and accolades they received there.

Re: “Two women Dems looking to break political curse in county commissioner races

I live in District 4 and I will be leaving the BOCC slot blank, because neither of them match my needs for representation and administration in the county, which is basic infrastructure maintenance and improvement, more law enforcement beyond our lone sheriff deputy, and otherwise getting the county and state government out of our way.
