Expanding the route that averages three driver's licenses per household... Land Rover, Mercedes and a trick Honda, ha! Ride the #4, habla ingles? ...or whatever they speak in Slovenia. Ask your friend's wife, her cousins might be indentured with you. I know you counter-bloodlines have been raging against the "nobility" out of eastern Europe for centuries. Please take your money and ego to the Cayman's. This is sacred land where you golf.
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to crack the two party system. Undecided plus "neither of the main candidates" totals 21.5 . Plus Big Johnson's 5 percent is more than Hillary's got, this poll was taken before she was found to be lying about her poor health. The two-party(more like one!) system will inexorably entrench after being blindsided by "the Donald". Two things are clear... We have to hit the establishment with both barrels and we have to do it NOW while they are in disarray. The other thing, the sad thing, is Trump is exactly what brainwashed, xenophobic morons recognize, respect and deserve. The track record of the oracular powers of EPC voters are made clear enough to embarrass anybody foolhardy enough to pay for a poll. hehe!
Smooth move Anschutz! Now let your slaves possess their own passports!
Let’s break Ray’s comments down line by line…
“Most of these so-called bikers are a menace to the public.”
Most is a tricky word, is it really most cyclist or maybe just the ones that you noticed and can still remember. Do you remember every cyclist you saw who was not being a menace?
“It is time to force bikers to be licensed, carry liability insurance,”
Licensed? So at what age would you like kids to start taking a test to ride their bike? Most cyclists also have a car and also then have a license and insurance. Cyclists also don’t need a license to be ticketed by police for breaking traffic laws.
“and to pay road taxes like the rest of do.”
Road taxes don’t even pay for most of the road. Property, income and sales tax (think 2C) make up a larger portion of the funding. Plus, the large majority of cyclists own cars. They also pay the exact same taxes even when they are riding their bicycle which has the added benefit of greatly reducing the wear and tear on those roads (less potholes for everyone)
“I've seen bikers----the large majority”
What did we say about using the word majority…
“run stop signs, weave in and out of traffic”
Some cyclists break traffic laws, and they should be ticketed for, so do cars and every road user every day. Cyclist do not break traffic laws in a greater quantity just because they are cyclist (you just happen to remember them more). And no, the sample size of only the cyclist you remember doesn’t count.
“kick cars for no reason other than spite, so on and so forth.”
Let’s hope they stub their toe…that’s just rude no matter what type of transportation you choose.
Dogs are only as vicious as they are trained and treated. Treat them well and train them well and they are good animals. Treat them cruelly and train them to kill....they will.
Mary Ann Redfern and others like her need to get their heads out of the poop bag they are in......NO DOG IS VICIOUS....it is all HOW THEY ARE TREATED AND TRAINED. Even a poodle can be trained as a KILLER!
This is a total waste of tax payer resources. Instead do something to help people get off the street NOT shuffle them elsewhere.
For a reality check, the writer of this article should have interviewed downtown employees and residents. As a downtown resident of many years, I object to the characterization that we downtowners do not want to share the public space. I think we are very welcoming to people who show common courtesy and obey simple, common sense rules. Class and race have nothing to do with it. This article seems like a national narrative that's imposed on Colorado Springs, rather than a focused view of what our downtown is really like.
I am curious, what sort of authority does a private security force have? If they are just private citizens, can the public just ignore their commands, or have they been granted some sort of authority by the city? Seems like the city should clarify, who, what and why these patrols exist, and exactly what authority they have.
IGNORANCE! ABUSE will change all living creatures. Pit Bulls are no different than any other animal. Horses are known to be violent and have had to be put down. Other dog breeds have also been violent and have been put down.
IT IS USUALLY THE OWNER! An owner needs to educate themselves before taking on a pet. ANY PET. Are you expecting to board a horse in an apartment? Do you have the time to devote to your pet? It takes time and effort to socialize a pet. Is your home appropriate for the pet? Is it calm or in chaos? Wll the pet fit in with other pets you may have? Can you afford the pet, food, vaccines, vets, etc.? Do you have adequate housing for you pet?
BEWARE OF THE WARNINGS? Don't put a fox in a chicken coup? Be aware of consequences. A baby cannot defend itself against animals. THINK! FIND YOUR COMMON SENSE.
I speak from experience. I own 3 pits bulls. I live alone on an acre of land with several acres between neighbors. I don't have any children visiting. I am usually home 24/7.
I am applauded by the animal control dept in my area. I am more afraid of someone killing my dogs because they are pits then I am of them biting someone. They have never been mistreated by a human and they trust people.
MAKE SURE THE ANIMAL AND THE HUMAN MATCH!
dogs arnt bad animals ANY OF THEM the dog will respond to how it is treated period. as for the officer? those igits arnt allowed on my property AT ALL...EVER!! most of em dont know what they are doing. and the dogs know it. alot of them dont even like animals. AND THE DOGS KNOW IT. as for pits they are sweet and awesome IF you are a dog lover. if your not a dog lover maybe you should choose another type of pet ...maybe a turtle.
Pitiful. The city has entered YOYO territory, i.e., You're On Your Own.
Meanwhile, the Mayor runs off to AZ, telling them not to legalize MJ.
Is there a "bathroom bill" due soon from our enlightened leadership?
Major companies are beating down the doors to move here. NOT!!
Most of these so-called bikers are a menace to the public.
It is time to force bikers to be licensed, carry liability insurance, and to pay road taxes like the rest of do.
I've seen bikers----the large majority---run stop signs, weave in and out of traffic, kick cars for no reason other than spite, so on and so forth.
Why? Because Struthers and the reich have always planned to take every bit of public property, land and services and pirate-tize them for the enrichment of their campaign contributors. The recent de-staffing of CSPD is the latest step in that effort and when that service is wrecked and the budget slashed all the way then it will be sold for pennies like the libraries, parks, schools, garbage, utilities, roads, snow removal, etc. This is an ideological battle to steal the public's property.
One thing the authorities cannot do is continue to return known vicious dogs back to irresponsible, delusional owners until someone is DEAD. The dogs should be put down. Public safety MUST come before the self imagined right to own a well documented vicious breed. People who failed to control their dogs once will fail again.
Pit bulls are never appropriate pets ever. Don't be fooled by the lies pit proponents propagate that "pits are just like other dogs". Sadly, pits are nothing like other dogs. Pit bulls maul, maim and kill more people, pets and livestock animals than all other dog breeds and mixes combined. Choose your pet dog carefully. Choose life.
Mr. Jenkins is NOT going to use HIS funds to build anything. He is going to use taxpayer funds, this is a pattern with him. Taxpayers pay for his developments, he profits, and we are stuck with his tasteless, whitebread vision for the city. Hello to more chain restaurants and meat market bars coming soon. Goodbye, bookstores, art galleries, and anything resembling culture..... Pure corporate welfare.
At the age of 15 I had my first seizure. I was in high school and didn't want anyone to know that I had epilepsy. I have only had seizures on two occasions. I was so ashamed and didn't want people to think that something was wrong with me. I finally got to the point where I told people that I had epilepsy. I came to the place that I realized that I had to own my epilepsy or it would control me. Epilepsy hadn't really affected my life until about 8 years ago after my first child was born... I am a wife and mother of three beautiful children. I have lived with epilepsy for 20 years Yet, my life has been dramatically impacted by epilepsy. I had search for cure at online without no hope. I met a Man called DR Ethan, i contact him I made an order of his medicine and I do not experience seizure anymore i was cured form it. So if you are in the same situation as me contact him on this email firstname.lastname@example.org or call him +1(386-237-6472)
I have lived here for about 4 years now. Coming from the Western Slope and other places in the country, the local government here seems abnormally corrupt. As a liberal democrat, I am at an odd crossroads where I actually won't vote for tax increases, due to the amount of obvious corruption in COS.
The C4C project literally came from nowhere and is up and running- without any input from the taxpayers. The citizens voted for recreational MJ, the city leadership decided to not respect the vote and overturned it. St. Francis hospital sells for 50k. The list goes on, and on, and on.
OldCrank- you sound like an Old Fool. Is this an attempt at propaganda or is this how your reasoning actually works?
COS needs to elect officials who desire to actually serve our community- with a few good leaders it wouldn't be hard to fix up our city. Cancel the corruption, the buddy buddy deals with developers like the Jenkins, and we ought to be ok.
