Re: “Proposition 105: GMOs

So you're going to just discount the studies in the GENERA database?

Re: “Proposition 105: GMOs

How could anyone be unsure of this issue? The big corporations did their own study at the beginning of the GMO craze. Their own guy came out on stage, said that he was positive going into this study that GMO was completely harmless, but that, after all the testing was done it proved unequivocally that GMO crops will kill us all. I saw that press conference myself but they clearly had that video, the study, and the guy disappeared. There is not one single good reason in existence to oppose GMO labels. The big corporations - Monsanto - don't want the labels and will do anything to convince people that labeling is not the answer. They aren't going to stop using GMO's, even though the crop yields are actually worse. So, labeling, and therefore, avoiding all GMO products is the only viable answer at the moment.

Re: “Petitions launched on stadium question

If I remember correctly, the monuments on the Pioneers Museum grounds are there because of private funds raised by the Pioneers Association in honor of those who came to the county in the 19th century. I don't think they have much to do with government.

Re: “Petitions launched on stadium question

Colorado Springs is filled with the new age new world order agenda. The statue of the pyramid and the all seeing eye that sits in front of the city museum along the east side of Nevada should tell ALL citizens of COS were the mind set of our city government lies. Every word that is spoken is a lie.
Thank you Anita and Council Joel for standing tall and bringing the truth to light.

What C4C Proponents are not telling you is that is Mayor Bach's way of bowing down to the United Nations Agenda 21

Take a look at this…

@Ion Cscityhall......I notice you have an illuminatti symbol as your profile pic. Isn't there a connection between City For Champions and The United Nations Agenda 21?

Re: “Petitions launched on stadium question

By all means let's keep Colorado Springs in the doldrums. North of Monument Hill the state's economy is thriving and downtown Denver is the heart beat of the economy. Down here in Conservative Colorado Springs we don't have even have a pulse. Keep it up Miller's you'll leave a sad legacy for our community.

Analysis: Nope, Same-Sex Marriage Doesn't Dissuade Straight People from Getting Married

A recent analysis by Fact Checker at the Reno Gazette-Journal looked into the marriage rate of countries abroad that have legalized same-sex marriage and compared the marriage rate over time. The findings show that same-sex marriage has not had any impact on the rate of different-sex marriages. So Nevada need not be worried about marriage equality recently coming to the state.

The ongoing decline in different-sex marriages is actually a trend started decades before same-sex marriage became an issue. Fact Checker looked at Eurostat data and compared marriage rates in Germany, Italy and the Netherlands over the decades. Although they have differing laws about marriage, all three countries had the same trend, according to Fact Checker, and showed declines in marriages since the 1970s.

In Germany (where a form of civil unions are legal), the marriage rate fell 49.5 percent. In the Netherlands (with full marriage equality), it fell 45.5 percent. And in Italy, a country that rejects same-sex marriages, the rate fell 54.5 percent. The same lack of pattern is found when looking at states in the U.S.…

Re: “Goodbye, hello

GWinCO, perhaps you are the one who needs to learn from the animals. Homosexual acts occur in nature all the time. Marriage ceremonies, on the other hand, never do occur in the wild.

Re: “Proposition 105: GMOs

Thought we were already living under the everything is GMO unless labeled non-gmo or organic. The wording does not seem close enough to the real intent.

Re: “Proposition 105: GMOs

All the places that GM food is "banned" is only restricted from growing and that's not even all the way true. Some places technically have like only RR corn restricted. Some places have RR soy restricted.

The EU regularly imports Transgenic foods all the time.

All the major EU science boards have found them to be safe.

Japan regularly imports Transgenic foods. China is one of the leaders in biotech today...

Re: “Goodbye, hello

It is sick in the first place, that humans who love the same sex want to destroy the meaning of a marriage between a MAN and a WOMAN, for their own selfishness. How dare you try to force your own sexuality on the heterosexual people and think your preferences in sexuality is normal. Those sexual misguided people need to go out and watch nature and learn from the animals, because there is no same sex love in nature or between the animals!!!! GOT IT????

Re: “Proposition 105: GMOs

In my mailbox was a flyer titled "Learn why Colorado farmers and food producers oppose Prop 105". Among the proponents is the CEO of CO Corn Growers Assoc. Corn crops are 95% from GE seeds. Other major GE crops are soy beans, sugar beets, rape seed (canola), cotton and even yellow squash. These growers don't want labeling because they anticipate the public will not buy their product. And they have to sell to the U.S. market because many foreign markets have banned GMOs.

I checked the website of my meat provider - Ranch Food Direct - and Callicrate avoids GMO feed and is encouraging farmers to use non-GMO seeds. We consumers need to support the SMALL farmers and ranchers who provide the food that promotes good health.

Re: “Parks and taxation

"Much of the money will help turn existing county properties into parks and trails. "

I honestly think we have enough parks. Many other items are more deserving of tax money.

Re: “Proposition 105: GMOs

You obviously have no clue how Transgenics works.

"Lots of Chemicals" doesn't mean anything. Everything is chemicals.

I don;'t know how you can oppose this. Our parks are in disrepair and need to be updated and renovated.

Re: “Proposition 105: GMOs

If roundup on your food is not bad for you then lets label it and let the people decide...

gmo is not a natural product, it came from some lab using lots of chemicals and many forms of protection for the scientist making this crap.

why would you vote to not have a label if it doesn't matter to you?? the rest of us think it does matter and would like to know what we are eating!!
