Re: “Fireworks displays don't come together in a day

Millions of individual Americans have been celebrating our freedom by lighting off fireworks on the 4th for much of our nation's history. Today, that right is being trampled by government officials bent on ever-more control. Even here in Colorado it's now illegal to light off sky rockets, roman candles, fire crackers (I love Black Cat fire crackers), and a myriad of other fireworks. It disgusts me that government can so easily crush our freedoms,and that more Americans aren't incensed by the constant erosion of our rights.

Re: “Springs Utilities board votes for status quo

Don't be fooled by Colorado Springs Forward. It is not a civic group. It is a Dark Money organization that works for the benefit of local developers. This group will do everything it can to get control of our Utilities.

Re: “Glenn, Lamborn dominate GOP primary results

Ya know, with the Tea Party endorsing the GOP runner TRUMP, I don't know how anyone can say they have creditability anymore. Dobson claims "he is a newly born again" and will need their panel of conservative Christians to guide him, but TRUMP is going to be like a WILD BOAR in the White House- untamed, uncivilized and self-serving when it comes to what is best for our country. Can't wait for this election go down in November- LMAO!!!

Re: “Listen to the Jesus bench complaint

First, I am atheist. I find this "Jesus" message less offensive than McDonalds or Coors appearing on a public ad. they too try to drive us to a specific product, and face it, religion is a product. If it helps defray the cost of the bus system, let it stand. Besides, The name Jesus is common among Hispanics, maybe one of them got promoted, good for him.

Re: “Glenn, Lamborn dominate GOP primary results


The GOP actually cost our country MILLIONS with the shut down! REMEMBER THE PARKS BEING CLOSED and lost of revenue? Remember those who were out of work for 2 1/2 weeks? Well, they got paid so the GOP basically gave them a 2 1/2 week vacation for the GOP HISSY FIT! Yet, since then, the unemployment rate, interest rate and deficit are all down from the crash that happened during the Bush administration.

Re: “UPDATE; City threatened with free speech lawsuit for Jesus ban

First off....I am an atheist, antitheist and a humanist.

Government seems so confused about the Bill of Rights.

The issue is not the message on the benches. The issue is the first amendment. The government cannot establish, as a policy, any form of religion, and conversely, cannot keep it's citizens from pursuit of their own religious beliefs.

Cutting to the chase....the city should continue to sell the ads to the church. It's a right. If the city is concerned about hate speech, so long as there are no foul words (those might be a protected right too) they have no business denying the church the right to deliver their message so long as they paid for the space.

Best bet....government should get out of the advertising business and give free enterprise a chance to garner the rewards of religious advertising.

Re: “Spraying to begin to combat moth and budworm

It's Btk. Notice in the maps, the city doesn't seem to be spraying in the Bear Creek drainage. The federal fish and wildlife service asked them not to, as it would potentially kill any insects that our last remaining Greenback Cutthroats might feed on.

I'm skeptical this treatment will work in the long run and that it is even necessary. Trees and insects have been doing this for thousands of years, and they're both still around. And science has shown that live trees are a greater fire danger than dead ones.

Re: “UPDATE; City threatened with free speech lawsuit for Jesus ban

They have, by way of opposing Jesus w/ "hate speech", shown that GOD is love. And that is the only thing worth taking away from this story.

Wouldn't it be ironic if Perdue wins his lawsuit and then finds all the bus benches are covered with gay pride propaganda...

Re: “How do you cure a hangover?

This is to inform everyone in need of marital help and healthy life to worry no more as this month is marital/health Special.
The recent cases of people being scam on internet has been discouraging. Spell and Magic is something delicate, i only pity persons using it to defraud people in need of help because my ancestors says no matter what one does, he/she is going to reap the result. When the times comes for them (scammers) reaping what they sow, then certainly they will wish "How are which i knew, i would have change my ways". So if you take pleasure in scamming, PLEASE BE WARN AS LIFE HAS NO DUPLICATE.
As for those in need of help, before contacting spell-casters; make sure he is a real one as there are many fake ones and few real ones. And giving hints about how to know a scam; Any testimony showing that the result of spells take effect three days after the spell has been cast or 48 hours is fake. To obtain maximum result of spell is 7 days. And before contact a spell-caster, ask him what's the importance of 7. To know the importance of 7, privately contact us via our email
