Re: “Reader: Lamborn should have a town hall for childish liberals, then another for the adults

Dennis Major- I appreciate you pointing that out...I thought it was an opinion piece (I saw the name Helen and thought it was HelenCollins). I flew into a blind rage I guess. Ha!

Re: “Reader: Lamborn should have a town hall for childish liberals, then another for the adults

s-cello - This was a letter to the Indy, and not an article. It was a letter from a reader, and I am glad that the Indy publishes even such a letter, as I would hate for them to discriminate in which letters they do put into print, or digital bits, as the case may be.

Re: “Reader: Lamborn should have a town hall for childish liberals, then another for the adults

Helen-
First off, I wasn't able to attend the town hall due to the small venue, 2 days notice, and being in the middle of the work day. Amazing you want to commend that pathetic effort though. I applaud and thank these "females filled with emotion and estrogen" who were able to attend and let Lameborn know how frustrated his constituents are with his lapdog policies and inability to actually listen to them. His office is rude to constituents when we call in and several have been told that he only works for the people who voted for him. People have every right to be angry and fight to be heard. How dare you, a reporter, try to squash people's First Amendment rights by telling them to sit down and be quiet, or even better yet, taken out by the police. You should be ashamed of yourself, and the Independent should be ashamed publishing this ignorant article. Your article sounds as though you are very anti-feminist as the only 2 people you could compliment were a man and a young girl. So Helen, I believe you to be the "obnoxious" one with "uneducated opinions."

Re: “Reader: Lamborn should have a town hall for childish liberals, then another for the adults

The frustration in the room centered from not being heard. Numerous phone calls, emails, and visits to the Congressman's offices were made only to get generic and often off subject responses. In the town hall Lamborn skidded around and refused to answer questions. Even when they were about his voting record. We did not come there to be lectured we expect our Congressman to represent us, he must first listen. The audience was filled with his constituents not just the liberals. We are all tired of being ignored.

Re: “Reader: Lamborn should have a town hall for childish liberals, then another for the adults

"This rude woman didn't want to realize that her right stops where ours starts. We have the right to listen to our congressman without interruptions." To do this, go to his YouTube page where you can listen to him constantly without interruption. I wasn't at that town hall to hear what HE had to say, I was there to hear what HIS CONSTITUENTS had to say TO HIM. He needs to listen to US at a town hall, not the other way around! I sat quietly at the town hall, but not out of respect for Lamborn, I sat quietly out of respect for my friend who desperately needed to get his attention to continue to get care for her son. I sat quietly out of respect for the 12 year old girl fighting for climate change. I sat quietly out of respect for the veteran fighting for veteran care. I sat quietly out of respect for the woman with her well researched chart filled with FACTS about how the middle class pays for most of America's healthcare. NEVER for Lamborn.

Re: “Reader: Lamborn should have a town hall for childish liberals, then another for the adults

If you want to listen to your Congressman without interruption, you have countless opportunities for that. Read his newsletters, follow his social media, attend his ridiculous tele-town halls, or call or write his office to get his canned statements, just like that room full of liberals has been doing. It's about time he start listening to US. We've heard what the Congressman has to say, over and over and over. We're fed up. Perhaps you should do your homework before attending the next town hall, like the liberals did, and you'd know what he has to say.

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs reaches settlement in racial profiling case

So, essentially what is being said is that bodycameras do reduce the incident of racial profiling, when officers are held accountable for their actions and being filmed. That is the intent of the cameras. Not just to document arrests, but also to document the abuse civilians.

What is needed are comparative analysis of the data, before and after body cameras. Number of citations, number of complaints against the CSPD, Percentage of Race/Gender of citations issued from 2010-2015 vs 2015-2016. From there a comparative analysis can be made. Not just cherry picking the stats that favor the CSPD.

Re: “The fourth estate is in peril

The so-called Fourth Estate has fallen for its own "everybody is a victim" nonsense when the real cause is that they've become lazy and cheap. By becoming aggregation platforms and media conglomerates they have lost sight of what it means to be news organizations. Research, fact-finding, and the use of credible sources have been replaced by rumor, innuendo and the citing of the trend of Tweets as some sort of public fact barometer. That crap is not news and thoughtful people can see right through it. The only way to regain respectability is to abandon your lazy habits of the last decade and spend your money on reporters and true journalists - not opinion writers and blowhards. This publication is a case in point, as it has one true journalist - Pam Zubeck - yet it has dozens on the payroll who also dubiously claim the title.

Re: “The fourth estate is in peril

"Journalists on the whole might not be the most likable people, but dishonest they are not."

Hmmm... guess your journalistic education never included "yellow journalism" (1890s), Joseph Pulitzer, William Randolph Hearst, etc. The truth, whether you like it or not, is that most journalism is biased and sensationalized.

Re: “GOP chair charged, but hours later DA's Office dismisses charges

One the one hand we have a person who was not doing anything illegal in the operation of his vehicle and on the other we have a person who was crossing the street illegally. Other than hitting his friend, the driver did nothing wrong and his friend would not have been hit had the pedestrian been obeying the law.

So it has nothing to do with whether or not the driver is May's friend or rich white man, it is a simple matter of law.

And I agree with Jackie.

Re: “Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country

BTW, because these people are actually criminals under this law, those helping them can actually be charged with aiding and abetting or under 8 US Code 1324, the latter usually being a felony.

Re: “Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country

"Progressive churches prepare to protect immigrants in the heart of Trump country "

Typical misleading headline. There is no threat to legal immigrants.

"But Trump's guidance, issued in January, upended the country's enforcement. That's because it defined "criminal" broadly enough to include everyone in the country without authorization like, say, all the women around this table. "

Again, misleading. Trump did not define what "criminal" is. Long established federal law, 8 US Code 1325 -- last changed over 20 years ago, actually makes them criminals, often felons. Trump is simply enforcing closer to the letter of the law.

This is a horrible accident and both families are grieving on so many levels. You both should be ashamed of yourselves and try to reach beyond your own limited capabilities of having feelings for people you don't know. Pathetic!

Re: “Reader: The Academy Chapel is a beloved national monument, you crazies

The Establishment Clause was never, ever meant to prohibit religion in public life, and all the screaming and squalling and red-faced, foot-stamping temper tantrum throwing by the secular Left will not change that. That became more certain with the appointment of Justice Gorsuch. I must admit that the temper tantrum throwing is entertaining. God Bless the USA, and God Bless the USAFA Chapel.
