Re: “Unlicensed vehicles are the norm on streets near The Broadmoor, tickets aren't

Something to ponder:
As the article states, the Broadmoor made an attempt on Cheyenne Mountain Blvd but backed off under intense public pressure. We also know that the Broadmoor backed off an attempt to put riding stables on the east side of 2

Re: “Manitou paving stopped

Nobody ever accused CDOT of competence.

Yet you don't see the HD17 rep doing legislation to decommission Business Route 24 and return it to the cities and county, either.

Get that done first, then the cities can continue to fix it right.

Lost in the entire article is question that was never asked in the first place, which is why we need government permission slips and fees to use OUR property on OUR roads...

Re: “Letters to the Future

January 2027: The world finally realizes that the entire AGW argument was nothing more than an elaborate hoax put forth by scheming liberals to do nothing more than achieve their ultimate goal of planetary enslavement under the liberal socialist political mantra, plunging the entire world into poverty and repression in the name of the liberal religious cult of scientism known as AGW, all to satisfy some elaborate and completely false narrative that somehow they know what's best, when in fact, they don't know Jack Schitt.

Re: “Post-Paris and post-election, meaningful movement toward climate change may stagnate

What a glorious mountain of a hot mess of AGW garbage!

Here's the reality: the climate of the planet, like everything else natural in the known universe, oscillates in sine waves. Right now it happens to be on a relative upcurve of that specific wave for climate. But it isn't linear, and it will peak soon, if it hasn't already, and then it will decline again, as it always does.

And there isn't a darn thing the human insect can do about it one way or another. The laws of nature will cause its own adjustments, not because of humans, but in spite of them.

But such reality is just completely destructive to the huge egos and smugness of the irrational and incorrect liberal mindset that they and only they in their alleged superior mindset can solve the problems that the allegedly lesser minds of non-liberals have caused. The reality is that the liberals don't know squat because they arrive at their analysis with pre-ordained conclusions based on fallacious reasoning and emotive nonsense, then Finagle the data to fit that pre-ordained conclusion instead of actually see what the full data actually says--and it says that their conclusions are simply FOS.

Re: “The Incline reopens, but more repairs are coming

> In the meantime, the nonprofit Incline Friends has raised $40,000 to hire a consultant to develop an application to request a National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) study for "the northern trail,"

Don't we need the Strawberry Fields deal to go through before that happens?

Re: “Indigenous locals travel to Standing Rock to join pipeline resistance

"1,172-mile infrastructure project piping crude oil fracked from the Bakken shale formation"... Be sure the word "fracked" is in there to make i as bad as one can. Then call themselves "water protectors" to sound good. Then they all hop in their pickup trucks and drive the protest site for a project that is almost complete which is an oil pipeline. Oil is stuff that powers their pickups, heats homes etc., all things we demand. Stop driving then. Make government regulate it some more to drive up the costs,eliminate the jobs and have skeleton crews working hard prone to mistakes while the company cuts corners because of profits lost by regulating. The stuff that heats homes has no better way to get to those homes than a pipeline. You won't have water in a frozen home.
1000 mile pipeline is a short run considering there are over 2 million miles of pipeline in this country. So this protest is over perceptions of maybe future problem or protecting water? No. It is protesting on private land which will get one arrested for trespassing and then perhaps a cash payoff to go away so the 10% left to go can be finished. Then protesters can wash their pickup trucks with precious water and drive back to their warm home knowing they have driven up the price of heat, wasted water and will not have to sit in the tipi when the temperature hits 20 below. 2 million miles of pipeline yet to inspect if they are worried about water. We are safe now, except for that damn fracking which if you do not like you can disable your thermostat and walk everywhere. Idiots.

Re: “District looking for answers after failure of bond, MLO

Some odd comments on here. First, a Bond isn't exclusively (or even often times, anything to do with) building NEW schools. It's more commonly to support the upkeep of existing, in some cases quite antiquated buildings. Surely we don't want our children being educated for the 21st century in buildings barely fit for the 20th century?

I don't remember the district anywhere down-playing the cost, or suggesting that it the proposed additional taxes weren't 'a big deal'. They simply tallied up their needs, focused on those that were a most pressing priority, costed them accordingly, and presented that to the taxpayers.

What about the benefit to tax payers when they see an increase in their property VALUES? When you live in an area where the schools are modern, high-tech, and in high demand, local home owners benefit? What's the value of that?
