If "Milligan is a far left whack job" then how far off the right edge of the map are you? Geez TT .. some days you make Pinochet look like a centrist.
Another 14 jobs and more young people gone. Good job blue hairs. As for Pico, he's a egotistical hack. I used to debate that guy on the Gazette, and he wouldn't know good science from a pile of sh*t. Like most of the council, he's a slave to ideology and blind to on the ground reality.
TejonTech, speaking as one with a degree in Religious Studies, who studied theology and ministry at Denver Seminary, and has worked in Protestant and Catholic church and para-church organizations, I can confidently and authoritatively say that you my friend are no Christ follower. You're a Pharisee. And a milk fed one at that. It's time to take back the church from people like you ... people who have overseen the largest single decline in US church attendance in history. If Jesus were to return today, I have zero doubt you'd be first to pick up a hammer and nail. You genuinely have no idea what you do. And for that, I just feel sorry for you. Grow up milk fed ... before it's too late. Good luck with all that self-righteous rage.
TejonTech it is truly sad to see a person so tied up in knots as you.
One poster wrote, "no one seems to be capable of hiring people who have the spunk, skills, and ideas to stand up and make a difference". There were some of us younger professionals with those traits in the Springs, and we were making a difference until about June 2011 when Mayor Bach took office and starting gutting the community. Our family recently left the Springs and so have a lot of people we know - other 40 and under people like us and even some really successful friends in their 50s and 60s. While it was hard to leave our friends, our home/neighborhood and our jobs, we are glad we did, especially given the recent take over of City Council. Thanks, David for trying to be an entreprenuer with Sun Share - you think the pro-business Reaganonomics-worshipping crowd would have been behind your capitalist efforts. But alas you are not a developer building junk houses/buildings and skirting regulations left and right.
So there is money when they say "turn out the lights, let the roads rot because we are poor"! I know people who try to earn $25k a year and cannot. $180k a year means you better be doing good work and that kind of pay is thanks enough. $25k extra for doing what you were hired to do is stupidity. Give it back to the taxpayers now please.
Oil derricks downtown?! Now that would be a sight especially if they were spewing crude everywhere!
But really, these protestors have no clue as to what they are talking about and if they drive to the place of protest then that is a bit contradictory. If they worry about our water it comes from Leadville. There is no ground water near downtown to speak of anyway. Our water is in Rampart Res and those ponds on Pikes Peak. Perhaps they could get the fertilizer at Walmarts parking lots put in better places. That stuff flows with the rain right into Fountain Creek etc.
Mr. Weinstein is a joke and is only doing this to gain popularity in his otherwise useless life. People like this should not even get airtime or allowed to spew his hatred towards the god fearing people of this country. Mr. Weinstein you have the right not to beloeve but I along with millions of others have the right to assemble and profess our religious beliefs. I feel really sorry for you Mr. Weinstein, life is to short to hate and be so up tight. You are probably needing those workouts so you don't blow a blood vessel. May God bless you Mr. Weinstein.
Admonishing each other and defending the truth trumps letting a false teaching stand....look it up!
Now that drugs are legal...whatever is just fine.
Smoke some dope, have sex, take a oops pill...all is well and all will be well.
As a person who moved here from Iowa, I feel Colorado Springs has many wonderful attributes, but tolerance isn't one of them. It never ceases to surprise me that with the amount of diversity here, it doesn't seem to be reflected in the voices of voters or public officials. I hope that in ten years, Colorado Springs has come even further in advancing social equality.
Apparently, TT has forgotten some of his childhood Bible Lessons while professing his doctrine of hate again. Picking on church folk and their minister- Shame on you!
John 8:1-12 The woman caught in adultry- What did Jesus tell the Pharisees? vs 7- He who is without sin cast the first stone. vs 11- Neither do I condemn thee; go, and sin no more. Why did Jesus say this when the Law of Moses said she should be stoned? Because Christ Jesus entered in the Grace Administration and we are no longer under the Law.
Romans 8:1- There is therefore now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus.
And my favorite: 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels and have not charity (love of god) I am become as sounding brass or a tinkling cymbal..(noises that hurts the ears because there is no love of God in the motivation- sound familar TT? )..13- And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three;but the greatest of these is charity.
Great idea, TejonTech! Let's just let kids shoot up anything they want in school without teacher intervention. Some of them might just be taking allergy medication.
If 15 year olds can take abortion pills without supervision, why can't they be responsible for this without government intervention?
I agree with them if for no other reason than because it would make our city a real hell hole to have drilling towers near businesses and neighborhoods...banning fracking within city limits seems like a no-brainer.
Unless the Broadmoor wants derricks along their golf courses, and we all know what the Broadmoor wants, the Broadmoor gets.
Storm Water control will certainly be a demanding project. If you would care to participate in our Storm Water Survey with your responses and comments, please feel free to sign up - this is a 'grass-roots' effort and the Annual Survey on Trust and Confidence in Local Government will be on-line in August. Thank you.
It is nice to hear a minister who doesn't believe anything and can agree with whatever warped view of God you have devised...and gives permission to behave any way you want like he does.
To take God out of the conversation imposes and establishes the secular/your point of view...how is that better than the view that has proven effective and life giving for thousands of years...are you smarter than all humans who have ever lived?
I am sure you do go to First Congo whatever feels good, make it up as you go Church...with worship led by the gay men's choir....groovy.
Oh yeah, and I admire and respect the Reverend Broadbent's views on gay marriage in his church and community. It is refreshing to hear from a religious leader in the community who is not hellbent on hell fire and damnation!
The problem seems to be that the straight-“religious” crowd believes they have the corner market on what is right or wrong, fair or unfair, just or unjust, holy or sinful and that they can impose those beliefs onto the rest of the population. And since many people do not worship the same god, with the same rules and interpretations, or any god at all, why don’t we just remove the whole religious/god part of the argument. Then the problem can be viewed as what it truly is – a civil equal rights issue. Don’t impose your interpretative beliefs into someone else’s life, and they won’t impose theirs into yours. Really, when it comes right down to it, how does gay marriage affect your life in any way, shape or form? Why lose sleep over this issue? What is your problem with EQUAL RIGHTS FOR ALL?
LivesLocally - "This city has been mismanaged since Bob Isaac stepped down as city manager."
I'm guessing you have not lived locally that long. Isaac was the mayor for 23 years, not the city manager.
