I wonder why the young population of this city is leaving in droves... The only ones left will be walking around with their eyes glazed over pontificating to anyone that will listen.
once again their "focus" is on the wrong things.
Could this be any more creepazoid?
It was bound to happen; busy bodies sticking their nose into the lives of people who didn't ask for it .... the knock on the door in the dark of the night has now come to your PC courtesy of zealots and ideologues who will "respectfully" tell you how wrong you are. Damn right this is icky, smarmy, opportunistic, and very strange.

Last January, I gave the book “The Cross in the Closet” by Timothy Kurek at www.facebook/TimothyKurek to our GLBTIQ Pride Center, Inside/ Out Youth Services, and Nori at the All Souls Church to encourage them to start a dialog with our community church leaders to encourage that we come together on common ground. I would like to again suggest that we ask Timothy Kurek to visit and speak to us on his experience as a Southern Baptist man and his enlightenment in this situation after a close friend came out to him as gay. He has some great words of wisdom to share if we are willing to listen.

Yes, I'm sure there are thousands of similar people in this situation.
It's a crisis!
Let's call Obama. Send in Janet Reno and Eric Holder! We'll get to the bottom of this!
I am a lesbian writer and activist here in CS and I like to post things on anti-gay legislation, gay rights and marriage equality, and transgender rights in our schools and our communities. I also think they should be upfront on who they are representing if they are to engage me in a online conversation. If they want a debate on such issues, I think it should be in a public forum and not one-on-one online, and let the whole community participate in the needed dialog. If you come at me with the “you’re going to hell philosophy” I will definitely give it right back to you, since I was a former Pentecostal lay-minister in the ‘80s and know my rights as a Christian and an American citizen of this great nation.
Well ""happy" now we have Sebelius hereself explaining what a "debacle" (her terminology) the ACA is, and the sign-up date has been delayed, largely due to prompting by the same Dems that authored, supported, tweaked, debated, voted for, and defended this legislative turkey. When the very party that constructed and birthed this Frankenstein--with a 100% partisan vote, mind you--is now admitting how egregious it is, maybe it's time to think or retiring it outright and proposing something that actually works, and the populace supports.
Nice attempt to sell this snake-oil scheme, but I, and a majority of Americans, still say...no thanks...
Not all construction & "growth" is equal. We need to make the most of our existing infrastructure and focus on mixed-use developments to ensure that there are adequate tax revenues to maintain the infrastructure.
Sprawling construction is bankrupting our local governments. For some background information on this Charles Marhon’s webpage to get a breakdown of how much tax revenues are needed for routine maintenance of various types of infrastructure:

This is such awesome news, especially as a way to treat ill children!
Recently in a staff meeting, my Director who is a Mormon told us as a group that MMJ and anyone who works in this field were "immoral" and nobody should be doing any research, production or distribution of this product as medicine. I am very glad to hear that you have proven him wrong!
What is even worse is I can't say anything in public at work for being MMJ patient since I can be fired for not passing a drug test, and HR has stated that even MMJ patients can be fired. (I went thru years of hell over this matter and lost my yearly raise just for writing a letter to the editor as an MMJ patient, then was told to keep my mouth shut and head down.) I think it is immoral that he is allowed to state his religious opinion at work when I can be fired for stating my opinion because he is my boss.

Well thinker, I think it is a good idea to delay the mandatory sign up date. Since the website is obviously not working correctly, the delay should be put in place so the sign up issues don't prevent anyone from getting this wonderful product before the mandatory date. Not a year like the repubicans are wanting, but a month or two makes sense to me.
Inherently flaw and unworkable... nice lie, I mean try... but no thanks.
If the City Utilities gives water to the Broadmoor so wealthy people can use it for recreation while we the people have not been allowed into the south slope assets for five decades, and those assets are owned by the people, then all of the senior management of the CS Utilities should be fired.
Well happyfew, what do you make of the left-leaning legislators (how's that for alliteration?!) asking for a delay to this turkey? Are they just parroting their GOP counterparts who asked it be pushed back because it was inherently flawed and too unworkable as-is? Gonna try to spin this as somehow different, since it's the Dems asking for the delays?....nice try, but no thanks...
faux news swallowers will parrot how expensive ACA will be, but that is not the case for most people. Most of the people whose costs will increase had horrible coverage that didn't cover much and now will have real health insurance. The biggest omission of the article is that insurance companies must put 85% of the money earned into health care for people... not extra bonus's for the big wig's. This has ended up with thousands of people getting rebates from the fat cat insurance companies already. The biggest concern for the repubicans is they know that the ACA will work and it will be very popular. So they are spreading their lies on thick in one last feeble attempt to stop it... nice try, but no thanks.
"Well, if you already have health insurance through an employer, or through a government program like Medicaid or Medicare, the answer is: nothing, really." Nice try there hipster but it's a swing and a miss. Peoples health insurance costs are going through the roof.
i don't know why yall put the "for now" in the title of this article. Its not gonna change any time soon. Unfortunately, Obamacare is the law of the land...
Very Good News for Zaki Jackson !
And All Children who suffer from Seizures.
Thanks to Colorado Voters !
The tax on tobacco (federal + state) is 43%.
Why are idiots insisting that it should be treated like alcohol? Because the tax is less? So, let me post a comment to their level of stupidity: does marijuana look more like alcohol or tobacco?
You can be sure of one thing in this world - whatever side the money is on is the wrong side.
