Each time I browse thise article I see something new. First, Mr. Ginsburgs might have the best intentions at heart. Only he is not the Homeless. He is a suit one of the elite. Even he unless he has walked in the shoes of the homeless do not know their needs.
Unless this Designed around the individual needs of each homeless person it is doomed to fail. Why teach an economic graduate how to budget? Yes I had an accountant in my home many years ago back in Maine, who felt entitled, and that the poor the homelerss where just idiots one christmas eve. 10 years back he called the hotline I run out of my apartment. He had found the American Lie, devalued him and his his wife, he was homeless.
There is no mention if his super shelter allow for families, or Domestice Violence targets. But for insurance and safety reasons one does not want to house children in the same units as recoverying addicts. Not all homeless are addicts.
Instead of being red tape jockeies, who degrade those they get paid to help, those designing the program can make it designed around the needs of the users. It is not the services providers which should desing this but the users should have imput. It should NOT be a one thought fits all. Homeless certified accountants should not be tought budgets, they should be teaching them.
I see this as a ware house at best and a prison at worst. I looks like a collage campus in the up close shot, but the Denver Post had the prison feel of the wire gate in iys photo. How great of shame will be connected with this shelter? How inhumane will its clients feel, and be treated?
There is some misinformation in this article. I attended a priesthood meeting in the church on the gay issue. Yes we love those members who are gay or lesbian, and many hold positions in our ward. However they are under covenant to remain chaste and refrain from having a same gender sexual relationship.The same moral laws are also upon heterosexual persons who are single, as they are to refrain from sexual relations until marriage. We still oppose gay marriage and that will NEVER change, but we need to show more compassion for those who struggle with this issue.We will always teach that marriage is only between male and female persons and that Temple Marriage is the highest order of marriage that God has given unto men.
Bruce Wayne, your comment is insane.
It has recently come to the attention of New York City officials that $350,000 may be missing from the public funds (which has been used to defend John Morse's & Angela Giron's rogue Colorado legislative actions to permit LGBT civil unions, Colorado State Sales of "Medical" Marijuana, and restrict US Constitutional 2nd Amendment gun rights, during a prolonged absence of several months by Mayor Bloomberg in Colorado (His Colorado expenses have been borne by the City, it appears), during which he has continued to receive his salary (while on a detour & frolick).
I also love that excepting one or two of them they also 'reply all' to any emails from constituents. These have been my exchanges with two of them of which all other members have had the ability to read and the foresight to not get involved... https://www.facebook.com/notes/lorena-drap…
Perhaps the reason is that there are no longer any news reporters in this city. Those types of people need records to dig up facts and put stories together. It is much easier to simply disguise opinion as "news" and save all the trouble.
Add to this the fact that the Gazette is becoming just another generic content aggregator and the local television stations have nothing but 18 year old interns and newsreaders working for them and there you have it - no more fourth estate.
TT water rates double after you've used 15,000 gallons in a month. That's a HUGE amount of water. If you're using more than 15,0000 gallons a month you've got a big wasteful problem, pal. I average 3,000 gallons a month. Seriously is there anything you don't find fault with? Get a hobby dude.
Vote YES on the recall...send a message for them to stop chipping away at our personnal liberties.
The most frivolous rip off in this city is punishing people for using water...by doubling their rates after a certain point. And even if you qualify to use more than allotted, you still pay double the rate, you just don't go to jail if you are granted the permit, but are out on work release to fund city projects.
This is a money grab against the citizens, just like paying for open records...we already pay for records through our taxes. Bach is accumulating money to do projects and sign contracts to help his buddies.
Colorado Springs Utilities are already charging us higher rates to pay for water to be brought in so we can continue uncontrolled growth at the city's far eastern edge, while the space between downtown and powers is street after street of abandoned strip malls and out of code houses. Better policy would be to restore what we have and live within our means...as it is we are looking for every way possible to fund a developer elite.
Those with open minds and hearts filled with love need to move to Colorado Springs. Teach the Christians in Name Only that tolerance is a virtue. Disgusting and intolerant people like TejonTech only poison and continue the trend of hatred and indignity.
You got me, Berto.
The Indy's website nests their endorsements under their News category (for some reason), therefore this must be a news story.
Anyway, what exactly are we supposed to be debating the merits of?
El Producto, you said, "Endorsements are slanted by their nature. Just cause you don't agree with the Indy's opinion doesn't change the fact the paper has the right to voice it. You recall supporters sure love to berate the other side into silence."
Your holier than thou post is laughable. Nobody is telling the Indy they don't have the right to write. Let me help with your reading comprehension. The puff piece perspective which I and a majority of the Indy readers reject shows up connected to their NEWS page, not their OPINION page. It is not NEWS; it is opinion. I also addressed a few of the reasons that justify the recall. I also addressed the FACT that, despite what the Indy writer said, the recall process IS the legal tool to "reclaim the process (their words)".
I don't know about anti-recall people but YOU sure know how to avoid the relevant subject. And YOU sure know how to stereotype and lie about other's intentions. THAT is no assumption; that is based on your exact words, my friend. By the way, if disagreeing with something is an attempt to 'berate the other side into silence', then stop berating me!
Step off your soap box and interact with the ideas at hand.

I not only think but, I know based on everyone that I have talked to and that's both sides. Is that these recalls are demanded because both have failed to do what the people have asked them to do! That's support OUR RIGHTS, not take them away or infringe them! They have forgotten it's "WE THE PEOPLE" not I the Government!
VOTE YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ON RECALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Take back your RIGHTS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Morse proposed ludicrous gun legislation that was so insane it wouldn't have made it off the senate floor. When he saw the embarrassment looming he pulled the legislation. But that did not stop him from pushing other legislation that was less draconian yet equally anti-second ammendment. The man has supported legislation that raised utility rates for a select group. He needs to go, CS Indy. THIS is how we "reclaim the process" (your words, oh anonymous Indy writer of faux news; if this article is 'news' then I am Walter Cronkite). Obviously the Indy does not speak for the respondents here. Thank goodness Indy readers are as intelligent as they are diverse. They can smell a political puff piece hiding under the guise of 'news.' Mama always said that if it looks like a skunk, lifts its tail like a skunk, and squirts stinky from its hoohoo, its a skunk. The same can be said of this article.
That had been ferreted out while the new gun control laws were still being debated. It was exposed again while the petitions were still being circulated. Indeed, the uncovering of the fact Bloomberg was involved in the anti-petition campaign was what led the NRA to get involved as before that happened they wanted absolutely nothing to do with the recall effort.
The elite are trying to change America...and Morse is their local pawn. Kick the stooge out!
