Re: “Springs shows up for racial justice, answering national call-to-action

Despite all their posturing and self-ascribed good intentions, SURJ is nothing more than another pack of racists. The very idea of separating people and placing different responsibilities on one racial group over another smacks of South African apartheid. The problems we have are not "white people problems," "black people problems," or "brown people problems." They are PEOPLE problems, and this finger-pointing mob is not helping.

Re: “UPDATE: Anschutz in bed with anti-LGBT forces

Who actually gives the SPLC, who in reality is a liberal hate group, any credibility anyway? They list someone as a hate group if they look at them cross-eyed.

Nevermind. The answer to the question is liberal kooks.

Re: “Broadmoor makes move on city reservoir

Bob: As long as the GOP runs COLO SPGS and El Paso County all that citizens can do is bend over. The GOP and the billionaires who own them consider anything within our national borders as theirs to play with and do with as they choose. The GOP will sell your city out from under you.

Re: “Commentary: CSPD operates under a veil of mystery

quote: ""I'm proud of our relationship with the community," Carey said."

this guy is soooo stupid he doesn't even realize THERE IS NO RELATIONSHIP...people in this town hate C.S.P.D. we had to pass conceal carry just so we could feel safe here. the police lie on reports and false report to their commanding officers, when they are caught doing wrong they get "now don't do that again" the police force here in Colorado HAS NO OVERSITE they can do what they want when they want. the state doesn't even have a department that over see local law enforcement.

Re: “Broadmoor makes move on city reservoir

I opposed the land swap because I thought it set a very bad precedent for more public land to be taken, and now this on it's heels. When do we just say "NO"?

Re: “City to pay $106,722 per acre for trail

It was great to stumble upon this post. Now we know all pros and cons of the form. I've forgotten the last time I filled out a form on paper. I mostly use PDFfiller to edit. You can easily fill East West Bank Outgoing Wire Funds Transfer Request here "".

Re: “Noam Chomsky endorses ColoradoCare

It is great that Noam Chomsky has taken up the cause of ColoradoCare. He has spoken on many issues with supreme and impeccable logic as he has here. He is unimpressed by hyperbolic vitriole, exaggerations and outright misinformation that is the modus operandi of the Koch & insurance company funded "think tanks". Most of what they present are fraudulent arguments based on the hysterical sentiments of conservative talk show hosts, more concerned about ratings than fact.
PLEASE check their website at and be your own judge. See if Noam's appraisal is in fact serious, logical and sound. If you do, vote YES on Amendment 69!

Re: “Stop the damage, and free ride, from grazing of public lands

I commend Rep. Grijalva - at least he makes an attempt to DO something about this matter! But when is the public actually going to realize how corrupt the relationship between the BLM & these livestock producers is? The proof is there in this report and in many others. Its in the attitude of the lobbyists who push for more, more more! WWP has done so much to bring this to people's attention, but when are taxpayers going to wake up & see exactly how much WE are paying to allow these livestock CORPORATIONS to continue draining our public lands in order to feed their greed and profits? In the meantime, our wild horses & burros, the wolves, the bears, the mountain lions - all predators are being destroyed in order for these corporations to get every last dollar out of our public lands - OUR public lands!

Re: “Turner will pay for recount in Commissioner District 4 race

This move shows the true character of a man unable to display class and dignity in defeat. He deserves to lose.

Not much of a surprise. Noam Chomsky is a communist.

Re: “Glenn to address RNC, and more on that criminal charge

Why is the Indy snooping around for more details about a misdemeanor committed by Glenn when he was 18? Why does the Indy care? Slinging mud is unbecoming to an investigative reporter. Focus your attention on what matters to the electorate - and that is on what Glenn intends to accomplish as a U.S. senator on behalf of the people he represents.

Re: “Glenn to address RNC, and more on that criminal charge

He's not even elected yet to the Senate (and won't be) but he's listed to speak on day one of the GOP convention. In other words the GOP is desperate for a token black person to be their useful idiot so they can bamboozle people into thinking the party is welcoming to blacks. It isn't.

I wonder if Trump will repeat what he said at a rally six weeks ago: "Oh, look at my African-American over here. Look at him," Trump said. "Are you the greatest?"

How ridiculous. The charge was dismissed. Leave it to the Independent to dig up trash and call it news.

Re: “Sallie Clark to address national groups in Cleveland

REALLY GOP- YOU’RE LGBT FRIENDLY??? A GOP Governor’s Unbelievable Defense Of Her Party’s Anti-LGBT Platform

On CNN Monday morning, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin (R), co-chair of the Republicans’ platform committee, explained that their priority with those planks was to “make American great” and to “stand for the human rights of all people, not just one segment, one class, one race, one preference, but for all people in the United States.” Besides, she said, there were gay people on the committee, insisting, “We’re an inclusive party; we’re a big tent.”
(Technically, there was gay person on the committee. Out of the 112 members, Rachel Hoff was the first openly gay Republican to ever serve on the platform committee.)…
