Re: “Commissioner egos, mental health resources, a letter to Lamborn, and more

Mike Endres: You don't get it; the Indy didn't go by actual gender, they went by identified gender!

Harold Mason: Respectful cooperation goes both ways, so bug the Democrats on that; a serious budget was killed in each of the past 5 years by the Democrats, too; expanded health care coverage is not a federal delegated power (read your Constitution); infrastructure spending is a state issue; AGW is a political joke; equal pay for women is a marketplace issue, not a government issue; promoting alternative energy is the job of the marketplace, not government; essential regulations as defined by whom?; common-sense gun control is not made by regulation and restriction but by training and education; women's health is not a federal government issue; and immigration policy is a mess.

Odin writes, "General rule of arguments: The first person accuse someone of fascism is almost always wrong and is almost always an ignorant dickhead."

Don't forget the same rule applies to socialism, as so many "ignorant dickheads" demonstrated when accusing Obama.

For the last eight years right-wing ideologues have been whining about Obama, and they have been whining about Clinton for 24 years. It did not take any of them long to figure out that whining losers are objects of derision, as they themselves have been for so many years.

Bob Nicoll asks, "Want an orange slice?"

Watch out! A Trump (Registered Trademark) orange slice could cost as much as $25, plus tip for service, and chances are the supplier was stiffed!

Re: “Lamborn votes to give away public lands; the homeless, CSU and more

Lil Mick, you haven't got a clue what fascism is or isn't, you just throw the term around to try to feel superior, just as you throw out your family's past service, which, by the way, pales in comparison to that of my family. Plus, unlike you, I served as well and did multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as serving in Bosnia and DESERT STORM.

General rule of arguments: The first person accuse someone of fascism is almost always wrong and is almost always an ignorant dickhead.

Re: “Lamborn votes to give away public lands; the homeless, CSU and more

I am 61 years old, my father and mother both enlisted in the Army to fight the spread of fascism in Europe, which would eventually have come to our shores.

I am speaking of WW II, my mother joined the Women's Army Corp, and my father was a 2nd lieutenant who fought on the front lines in France.

My father took a bullet from a German soldier, shattering his right arm and went through major surgery, grafting his thigh bone to repair the shattered bones in his arm.

He is a purple heart recipient and to me they are both heroes who fought to keep their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren free from fascism.

Odin and Bob Nicoll, you are both cowardly, ignorant, disgusting human beings and this country and world would be better off without either of you.

You fucking fascist bastards disgust me!

"How sweet to hear that D.T. thinks Putin's decision not to retaliate after the U.S. imposed sanctions is smart and a "great move." " -- Sally Alberts

So Sally, what you are saying is that you wanted Russia to retaliate. Nice to know.

Re: “Homelessness vs. war, Donald Trump, working for peace, and more

Rocky...you are correct, however, Trump is more than just childish, Trump has some serious emotional issues.

I am not a psychologist, I would love to hear a non-partisan psychologist's thoughts on this, but I don't think one needs to be a psychologist to see this. You just have to have eye's, ear's and a mature brain with a mature thought process.

Trump for some reason has not matured emotionally beyond the emotional maturity of an adolescent.

This explains much, it explains why the republican debate degraded to a debate on who's wife is the hottest, or who has the larger penis.

It explains why he cannot take any criticism, why doesn't care whom it is he retaliates for criticizing him, war heroes, gold star parents, disabled individuals etc.

It explains his obsession with tweeting out his retaliation to others in an immature and disrespectful manner.

It explains when a journalist asks him why not just stop the silly war with Cruz on who's wife is hotter and going after the other's wife, his response was..."well, he started it, why do I have to stop?" Any one of us with an adolescent child knows that line very well.

We have elected to the most important seat in our government and in many way's the world a child.

In my 61 years of life, I have never seen this country in such a vulnerable way as we are now.

Our country, our democracy will not fall from bombs from Russia, China, or North Korea, if that becomes a reality, it will be Mutually Assured Destruction. We would all lose.

Our democracy will only fall if we crumble as a nation internally.

My friends, we are seeing that happen.

Our partisan polarity has become so intense, we can know longer think like adult Americans. We have become blind from our hatred for each other and to the vulnerability we are creating.

Fellow American's, unless we pull together as American's and not republicans, democrats, conservatives or progressives, we will split to a point where we can not be put back together and our nation and our democracy will fall.

Re: “Homelessness vs. war, Donald Trump, working for peace, and more

Hate to say it folks but its beginning to look like we all lost. Our new President is all hurt over the fact that our intelligence has proof our enemies helped him win. Aw there just trying to say I didnt legitimately win. When he should be saying I still won but lets not ever let this happen again. But wait he knows things. Right? Now we are supposed to pay for that wall he promised and expect Mexico to pay us back. Ill bet next we will here when they get there tax return they will pay us. Im going to drain the swamp but bring in the same ones that were ran out 15 years ago because they were crooks. Im going to deregulate the stock market but its not because I owe them billions. Damn people cant you all figure out we just elected the most childish man in this Country to lead us. With a shit load of childish promises. Why the hell do you think Russia was so happy he won? Biden said it correct "GROW UP" but I think it should have been aimed at the whole damn Country.

Re: “Homelessness vs. war, Donald Trump, working for peace, and more

Okay, I played a lot of "risk", while toking to JD. The Canuck mistook Japan for a powerful country that is not feeling suddenly lonely between Kim jong and beijing. Trump defaults on our debt...savings bonds are worthless, aaaaplus credit rating vaporized... maybe Tokyo too, keep an eye on Kuala Lampur, hehe. Anyhoo, we end up sending our pacific fleet to Yokohama, LIKE A CHUMP! Putin is stoked. China is broke. Japan is smoke. Lgbtqthcwwjd is a joke.

Re: “No faith in local leaders, or Donald Trump

Trump was elected simply because he told the people what they wanted to here. Not the truth, not reality just what they wanted to here. Hes a salesman. People are gullible and will buy anything they are told they cant live without. There will be no wall, there will be no high paying jobs, theres nothing to prosecute, the swamp wont be cleared, Coal jobs are not coming back and the trade agreements are going to do nothing more then cost us more for the goods we need. The Terrorists will attack more just to prove he cant stop them. He hasent even taken office and on the news this morning hes taking credit for the improvement in the economy forecast. Its a forecast people not reality. He has fed the ego of the voters that counted in order to feed his own. His late night tweets prove that. The few Republicans that opposed him and were insulted by him are now jumping on his wagon in hopes he can or will do something great so they can get a pat on the back. The Democrats put a person in that had way to much baggage after 8 years of every radio host telling them how bad it has been. Why do you think there was only those two running as Democrats? Were in for one heck of a ride and the only hope we have is the Vice President and the few in Congress that are Statesmen can hold it together.
