Re: “'Would you please look at this?'

I'm the man in this article my name is Joseph Martinez a few things on here was incorrect they drop charges on me because I took a lie detector test and passed it and when told that I was going to get a fair lineup all they did was have sit outside of the courtroom and as the undercover cop got off the elevator the DEA pointed me out with their eyes after that the undercover cop came up to me and tried to accuse me knowing that he got the wrong guy just to save his own butt when I tried suing the city the judge handling my case told my attorney I wasn't getting nothing and that they had a right to do what they did kind of sucks because a lot of them in the judicial system will never know what it feels like to wake up day after day having to look over your shoulder being paranoid

The development community took a big hit on the 4th. Will bet a 5th on the 18th that council will retain a weak president who will follow orders.

Re: “Planned Parenthood exec: Gorsuch is a poor choice

Odin is correct re American history. Agreeing on a Constitution that would bind the north and south states into a union - with a Federal govt having certain powers over the states - was an extraordinarily difficult task. Most northerners and many of the southern planters were morally opposed to slavery and yet they managed to create a govt in support of their belief that "All men are created equal". But since the south was dependent on slave labor for their tobacco crops, the divisive issue of slavery was postponed for the next generation to resolve.

The books I've recently read about the Revolutionary Generation show how difficult it was to reach a compromise - and without compromise, there would have been no United States of America. That our republican govt has lasted for 200 plus years without evolving into a dictatorship (which was the great fear of the Founders) is a stunning accomplishment.

Re: “UPDATE: Gaebler considering bid for Colorado Springs City Council president

I was speaking to the matter of Mrs. Gaebler not having the support on council to be chosen as President. I think it really is a choice between Mr. Bennett and Mr. Skorman. The mayor and chief of staff will be offering deals to entice council members to keep Mr. Bennett as President. They need a 'Yes' man. These decisions are basically made at Plaza of the Rockies!

Re: “Planned Parenthood exec: Gorsuch is a poor choice

You have addressed slavery in your analysis of our Founding Fathers, but you ignored the proposition that Blacks were considered to be sub-human even by those enlightened souls who railed the loudest against slavery. Had they believed the slaves to be fully human, how could they ever compromise?

But you are correct. My analogy is imperfect because the mission of Planned Parenthood was never to sterilize anybody in the first place, so the organization did not need to change very much over the years, unlike our nation.

You can call me dumb all day long and LOL until your sides split, but that does not prove your contentions. Proof requires evidence.

Are you speaking of the necessity of a run off if the candidates for Mayor receive under 50%?

Doesn't it take more than just one vote to be selected as President of Council?

Re: “Planned Parenthood exec: Gorsuch is a poor choice

Oh, and just an FYI, but when our nation was founded, a heck of a lot of people thought slavery was wrong and advocated doing away with it. It was allowed as a compromise with the goal of eventually eliminating it. It remains a very dark stain on our history and the repercussions of which we are still dealing with today. So trying to compare to PP's founding pretty well backfires on you.

Re: “Outdoor recreation and child development

Its a great article on recreational activities for children. Parents must more focus on their children physical sports activities rather than provide them more of electronic gaming devices while bringing them up.

Re: “Planned Parenthood exec: Gorsuch is a poor choice

"Makes one wonder what they are doing with all that federal money they get which cannot legally be spent on abortions."

You told us the answer to that question earlier in your message: cervical cancer screening. Don't you read your own messages?

By the way, "most tests for cervical cancer are sent to 3rd party lab companies..." Is there something morally wrong or criminal about sending samples to outside labs for analysis, because my doctors do this all the time.

Re: “Planned Parenthood exec: Gorsuch is a poor choice

"A company which was founded by a proponent of eugenics who thought minorities, especially blacks, and people with mental disabilities should be sterilized."

We live in a nation which was founded by proponents of slavery who thought blacks were not members of the human species. Obviously, organizations can change over time.

Re: “Planned Parenthood exec: Gorsuch is a poor choice

Hmmm... a 1.3 billion dollar private company which gets more than 1/3rd of its funding from the federal government? A "health care" company which really only provides one type of health care other than abortions in that it will gather samples for cervical cancer screening (they do NOT provide mammograms, they will only give a referral, and most tests for cervical cancer are sent to 3rd party lab companies). The only "planning" of parenthood they do is abortions, almost none of their facilities do any kind of pre-natal care and they do absolutely NO fertility related care. A company which was founded by a proponent of eugenics who thought minorities, especially blacks, and people with mental disabilities should be sterilized. Makes one wonder what they are doing with all that federal money they get which cannot legally be spent on abortions.

Re: “Reader: Defund public media, it'll be fine

"Does it surprise you that CPB is not in the business of funding losers? Doesn't fit in with your personal stereotype of capital-P "Progressives?"

It points out how progressives are two faced and only care about getting what they want...especially with OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY!!!

Why must the taxpayers fund public broadcasting...because we like it and people who don't watch and listen are dumb.

Re: “FoodMaven could do more harm than good in the fight against food waste

For years I managed a small and local Colorado organic farm on the Western Slope. Afterwards I spent years in the corporate world working with the states largest and most influential farmers. I can say, across the board, farming is one of the hardest jobs to do. Mike Callicrate gives a dang good assessment of the Food Maven situation.

I absolutely see how Food Maven's model simply encourages super-markets to continue ordering too much food, and simply allows them to sell it for a profit to restaurants and other businesses which should otherwise be ordering from a smaller and local farm. All under the guise of environmental responsibility.

Thanks Mike for a good read and another perspective on this discussion.
