Fantasy land...morse is gone, run out of town on a rail.
Shades of the old Soviet Union, reporting on the a sports event where the USA won and the USSR came in second.
TASS reported that the US came in next to last and the USSR came in second.
So it goes with Mayor Botch's propaganda ministry.
Hows about getting Jay Carney?
the old technicality nullifying the result. poor repubicans... missed it by that much.
Over 37 percent of the submitted signatures were invalid. What a bunch of morons who don't even know if they are registered to vote in District 11. Oh, you mean Senate District 11? Duh. They probably think Al Gore is still VP.
They have to give us that award or else we'll nuke 'em. (:->)
We need to hire Joe Izuzu to be the City's spokesman. He has more credibility than the current crop of hacks and flacks.
The signatures to be gathered was never in question - and it will take a huge turnout from District 11 voters opposed to John Morse to make this recall happen. We do not think it will be successful. If you would like to volunteer to assist in the process to encourage voters to keep Senator Morse in office, you can sign up below.
If you would like to participate in the on-line Marijuana Survey: Allow or Ban, soon coming before city council, please indicate in the comment section of the registration from and we will be happy to forward it to you. Thank you.
What we need is a list of all the best Colorado beers...these guys have obviously never tried Eddy Line for example.
Boo! I cry foul! Those macho drinkers will think again when all the hops affect their estrogen levels!
All women should take self defense classes, carry a gun (know how to use it, practice with it), and USE IT!!! Then use a Taser on him and then mace him then kick the shit out of him then call the police. When people realize it's up to them to protect themselves because there will never be police protection during normal life, that's when the numbers of these crimes will drop. And when the criminals start to understand that they may be killed committing there crime, the numbers will drop.
Mayor wants to OUTSOURCE EVERYTHING! ALL City employees should be worried about there jobs.

It will be up to the Indy to dig deeper into this fire story. Why were there only 150 firefighters fighting the fire a day and a half in but over a thousand when it was almost put out? Why was the county so grossly unprepared for a fire in the Black "Forest"? Was internal advice ignored? The local tv will not do this story. For them this was just a news event. Sheriff Maketa was a hero. There were lots of silver linings and endless "how do you really feel questions?"
All of this would have been much easier if the Mayor and Council had chosen to air the subject before making a decision on laying off so many city workers. Democracy is messy but it flourishes best in the open. Too many recent city decisions smack of oligarchy and are hidden from the public as personnel matters.
I believe the City should end negotiations with this business headquartered in a Foreign country and step back, take another look and the REAL numbers of so called cost savings vs value and get PERA down here to explain to the people how them numbers don't work.
"perceived," "appearance of a conflict," "remote," and "indirect." I believe the City should end negotiations with this business headquartered in a Foreign country and step back, take another look and the REAL numbers of so called cost savings vs value and get PERA down here to explain to the people how them numbers don't work.
I don't believe former Councilman Guman's comments regarding recusal and the Code of Ethics are directed at our newly elected Councilman Pico; rather, I believe, they are aimed at citizens with the intention of informing them of a potential conflict of interest.
Mark is one of the hardest working Representatives that I have met lately; having met 4 in the last year and asking them all about their agenda's (ok, maybe 5) and he is all business and trying to best represent the wishes of the God-fearing people of this state to perpetuate and increase the goodwill of the people.
It's been almost a week and still NO word on the deceased persons.
What's up with that?
So, if the lab did shoddy work and cases are thrown out and convictions overturned, does Colorado re-imburse defendants for what they paid in fines, court costs, legal fees, loss of income, etc? Could get pricey, but seems the right thing to do.
A bit ironic that highly conservative Colorado Springs now contracts for lab work with a firm in highly liberal Boulder. Gotta love it.
