Re: “'Fluff' news, safe and clean parks, pot and the press, and more

Dear Father Carmody,

I recently read your letter in the Colorado Springs Independent. I believe you are out of touch with church policy and teachings. This letter shows deep-rooted prejudice and irresponsible behavior unbecoming of a representative of the church
I have never read a more disrespectful, ill-conceived, unchristian letter. How dare you, especially as someone with the ironic title of "Respect Life Director", compare homosexuals with the Ku Klux Klan.
Ignoring, as you did, the fact that the pizza parlor owner used language almost exactly the same as the anti-catholic rhetoric you claimed your grandfather was a victim.

He, the owner-Kevin O'Connor, stated: "That lifestyle is something they choose. I choose to be heterosexual. They choose to be homosexual. Why should I be beat over the head to go along with something they choose?"

If he chose to be heterosexual, it makes me wonder what he was before, and how this choice was made available to him. No one else seems to have been given the option. Did you chose to be heterosexual, male, Catholic? I am heterosexual, no choice was made available to me.
He used the fear of retaliation by persons unknown to play victim and used the publicity to collect over $830,000 in donations from people who thought the threats were real (no evidence exists they ever received any credible threat) and some believed their pizza parlor had actually been burned down. If there is a modern day KKK, it is the ultra self-righteous pseudo-christians that condemn people for loving each other, a group in which you are now a charter member. Catholic Church policy states that while homosexuality is considered immoral, every homosexual person should be treated with respect and love.

Re: “UPDATE: Bruce/Collins alliance affirmed in lawsuit

How about putting some effort into finding out WHO paid for Collins recall election? Is it Jenkins, the developer who will profit by millions of dollars when his currently worthless properties in the URA become valuable with the building of the C4C stadium, using OUR sales tax revenue? Or is it Anschutz, the owner of the Gazette and employer of Laugeson, whose wife was involved in the recall? Or is it both of them? Or other City Leaders? Why not do some investigative reporting re this political cesspool?

As for Bruce and Collins real estate ventures, if you were to shine a spotlight on the deals the BIG developers make, what might you find? In his favor, I don't see Bruce attempting to divert millions of dollars in sales tax revenue in order to build a downtown stadium that taxpayers don't want. The Gazette won't investigate the Collins recall. Will you?

Maggies is a joke, impersonal service, rude budtenders and the shady aspects of an illegal buy. Move em in and out and take it or leave it seems to be the attitude of staff at Maggies. I'll take my business elsewhere!

Re: “'Fluff' news, safe and clean parks, pot and the press, and more

Re Phil Stahl letter:
"a full 96.2 percent concur that temperatures have steadily risen, and there is no evidence for cooling. Meanwhile, 97.4 percent concur there is a definite role of humans in climate change."
Your accuracy is disturbing. The numbers are closer to 100% - no one is debating rising temps nor whether humans have some impact.

The question is 'How much?'

A letter full of conflation gets us no closer to the answer.

It is amazing that the city council looks the other way on this. Public officials should use official email accounts for everything except personal business.

Re: “Election: All about the party

Shamrock: One can assume that Art. II, Section 2-10 was added as new to the city charter yet never voted on by the citizens because all changes made to the city charter must be voted on changed line by changed line and not in one sweeping change.

The city charter is not worth a plug nickel and why people keep thinking the document is whole is beyond me. If all council members would take the time and STUDY the city charter and not read it, they would find out they wouldn't have to put un-necessary charter amendments on the ballot like Issue 1. The only person who can sign CSU contracts is the CEO or his designee who must be an employee of CSU--the charter was never originally changed. What was voted on to take the charter back to its original intent was Bach's wet dream.

Re: “Chemtrails concern continued

Harold, I can see where you are confused but they are not talking about massive amounts of chemicals dumped. When they are speaking of aerosols in this video you posted, they mean either the minute amount that normally (and has always) come out of the back of an airplane as part of the exhaust or the particles that are always up in the air. See, the term aerosol does not necessarily mean it was sprayed. This is a common misconception. Things like pollen and dust are also aerosols. They are suspended in the air. So, no where in your video does anyone mention that they are dumping anything along the lines that the chemtrail conspiracy theorists are saying. Those are clouds up there and not one shred of evidence has EVER shown otherwise.

Re: “Election: All about the party

Not to sure about buying offices as some here have "suggested" but I am sure that when the blue bloods convinced us to change the Charter in 2010 we were sold a bill of goods that's getting expensive. Now, I know Mr. Bach still thinks we're broke, and while I doubt his assertion (especially when he seems to find money for his interests) this runoff election at a reported $300,000+ really is a huge waste of so-called limited tax dollars. Take a look at Art. II, Section 2-10(a)(1) of the Charter and you can see the sentence that has sentenced us to this further waste of our tax money. "..[S]hall be elected by a majority, and not a plurality of votes cast..." May have been cut & pasted from Denver's Charter by some high dollar lawyer and then conveniently ignored by everyone...until now when we take a hit in our wallets. But, my guess is the brain trust on City Council and the blue bloods in the community won't do a thing to change it to a plurality election so we can all get on with our lives with just a few more tax dollars in our pockets.

Re: “Election: All about the party

It's a damn shame that since money talks, money has and will win again. It would be nice to remove money from our elections entirely. Level the playing field and then the citizens might actually feel like our vote matters, instead of groups of moneyed people and businesses deciding who will be bought... oops, I mean elected. I really hope that people vote in droves for Mary Lou during the run-off, regardless of the shortfall in her election coffers. She would be a much better fit for this community and its citizens, instead of the bought-and-paid-for John Suthers by big business and development entities.

Re: “In case you missed it: Bus service changes

Still not on time for the poorer folks on the westside and Manitou (3) and Hillside (1) and the split of the #7 off on the #22 has the poorer people over in Eastborough greatly inconvenienced too. The contract needs to be given to another company, the drivers trained better and the newbies kept off the heavy routes like 3, 1, 7, 25, etc.

Re: “Chemtrails concern continued

This is no longer a theory. In this article and Video, Climate Scientist Jasper Kirkby explains How jet Aircraft are releasing Aerosol Dumps high in the atmosphere. Journalists like Mat Schniper are breathing the same aerosols fallout as the rest of us. Time to stop fooling around.
