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.

"the rational thinking intelligent people will take over now"

Lemme guess: You consider yourself part of this demographic, yet can't even properly capitalize or punctuate?

LOL!!!

Re: “Centennial extension, the state constitution, 'welfare queens,' and more

Gotta love the self-absorption and faux-indignation of a geriatric, drug-addled, entitlement-dependent, nursery-school deadbeat transient that thinks she knows better than others how to conduct their lives.

This trogolodyte actually thinks that gun regs which have never worked are a magical panaces that will cure violence, but the regressives she relies upon to pay her bills and provide her thoughts and opinions on this are inept to the point of staging catered sit-ins, complete with bathroom breaks.

(I'd embellish all this, but it's perfect as it stands!)

The country is changing, and the mindless, no-info rabble sucking on the gov't teat are fizzling-out; or is Bernie gonna be the regressives nominee? LOL!

Go back under the bridge and slam some MD 20/20--we won't ask what you had to do to "earn" the bottles--then take a dip in the creek--soak your "naughty bits"--and find a nice corner to patrol for pennies.

And by all means, shoot your mouth; it'll release some of the vaccum from between your ears and give us something more to laugh at...

Re: “Centennial extension, the state constitution, 'welfare queens,' and more

gotta love the certainty of the nra loving, drunken, redneck, pick-em-up truck driving, high school drop out, gun nuts about gun regulations. these nimrods truly think that the clueless teabaggers running the show now will be around in 6 months. the country is changing and the redneck and religious freak period is over. the rational thinking intelligent people will take over now. now go back to your double wide and drink a 40 oz. and get mad that you don't have a good job. shoot your guns... maybe it will help you feel better about yourself.

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: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

As the pub media landscape changes and is increasingly threatened by online / on demand content, unique locally produced material is what will keep stations viable. Many of the most successful affiliates (critically and financially) have been leaders in this way.

As to the commentary re: value of WWWH with a $10,000 budget... That's tiny! Expect a show like this American life to be well into the six figures. In my opinion it WWWH show (or similar creative local content) deserves more. If we don't support folks with 'New York kind of money' just be ready to be listening and watching and reading content produced in New York and LA.

News like this makes it hard to justify my regular support of local media.

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: “Centennial extension, the state constitution, 'welfare queens,' and more

Mr. Odin....

First, my apology to Odin, I read his post and thought it was Liberty, I gave Kudos to Liberty by mistake...it was Odin that posted a response to me without a single insult to me.

Lets have an awesome dialog, you and I Odin, I would love that. Let's start with the first point I made with your response.

My Point:
"You folks seem to continue to push this false message that gun safety legislation is going to take your guns away," - Lil Mick

Odin's Response:
Not all of them all at once. But countless legislators and politicians have espoused doing basically that by adopting restrictions like those in the UK and Australia, where owning even a shotgun is very difficult and everything else much more so, and where massive "mandatory buy backs" and turn-ins were held -- AKA confiscations and bans. You can claim that no one wants to do this until you are blue in the face, but you are only fooling yourself.

My Response:
There is nothing factual to this response, this is an opinion.

Question:
"Countless legislatures and politicians"
...ok, if they are countless, there must be a lot and they must be easy to name, can you give me a few who has espoused in taking all guns away from the civilian population?

...It's your opinion, which I will respect, but it is without any factual basis. Can't debate a factless opinion, I think you all do this and that is when the dialog goes to the crapper.

...I will stand strong on this as a fact, no one, no politician, no legislature is trying to take hunting rifles. If anyone did, I, as a progressive would oppose such legislation. I live in Vermont and hunting is very..very big here, I would stand side by side with you Odin and Liberty in opposing such legislation. That's a promise.

...So, Odin, if you can't tell me which of the countless legislatures want to take all guns away including hunting rifles, then my point stands.

...Saying this "You can claim that no one wants to do this until you are blue in the face, but you are only fooling yourself." Is worthless without facts to back it up.

Opinions need to always be backed up by facts in a dialog, or it is nothing more than an opinion and you cannot debate opinions, you can only debate the facts.

I still stand, no one is espousing that we take your guns away.

Right now, it is just background check loopholes, Assault style semi automatic long guns maybe, but not hunting rifles.

Your response is simply non factual...not true...and we need to stop this false narrative and really debate the facts.

Thank you Odin, for your willingness to talk to me as friends who simply have a different point of view.

Was this response both adult and respectful to you Odin?
