Re: “The Trump presidency, deplorables, the media, and more

"Now that Donald Trump has been elected President of the United States of America, do you want to know why? It is simple: Hillary Clinton called me a 'deplorable....'" That's it, huh? You chose to be hurt or insulted or piqued or whateverthehell because you think she called you a name? Drumpf said Mexicans were murderers and rapists and must be kept out of our pristine white country with a impenetrable wall, and you were okay with that?? He called women "bitches" and "whores" and bragged that he could grab them by the private parts and they couldn't do anything about it--and that's alright with you? But god forbid Clinton call you something. He threatens to jail, deport, and otherwise harm people because of their choice of faith paths, dismembering families, separating parents and children, but that's no skin off your nose because you're not Muslim, right? You're not female, disabled, black, elderly, homeless, gay--so you're okay with all of the danger those "other" people are in. But, but, but--she called me a bad name!!! Sheesh....

Re: “The Trump presidency, deplorables, the media, and more

Interesting letters this week. First off our system of the electoral college does work we vote in a Democratic way but count in the electoral so as to be true to our republic. That's what you tell your children the truth. If you remember correct Baby Bush won the same way. Time will tell if Trump makes the right calls for our Country with what powers he may have. I personally think things are going to put in that hand basket and go to that place Grandma warned us about. But we will see. Everybody wants some kind of change and looks to the President to do it but ignores the rest of our leadership where the changes are needed and that's Congress. All of our policy and laws come from that group and yet everyone looks to the President. Trump just like Obama and Bush is only going to get as much done as Congress allows and Congress is influenced by money. Not your vote not mine just by who ever has the most money and they are secure in there jobs because the voters are preoccupied by the Presidential election and whats promised to them by that one person. Everyone talks about coming together as one Nation but we keep voting one group over the other then the next time its the other groups turn after the first group screws up and blames the President. We need balance, compromise and solid leadership in all three branches of Government. Not one side takes all and we damn sure need the money taken out of the Capitol so the people have a voice again. The biggest problem with Obama was Congress not doing a damn thing and him going forward on his own with what few powers he had. We dont need more of that. But that's just my opinion.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Yeah, I guess the right has conviently forgotten the last 8 years of hate that they rained down on Obama. They voted in a candidate backed by the KKK. It's like they've just smeared shit over every WWII soldiers grave with their voting in of President Man-Baby.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Thank goodness the President doesn't have near as much power as the average idiot seems to think he does. If he did I would be very afraid but if 8 years of Bush didn't prove that no idiot is going to be allowed an unsupervised presidency. He will do as much damage as the real people in power allow him to to serve their own purposes.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Hey Mike What has Clinton been convicted of? Here's a clue NOTHING. Why? Because maybe nothing shes done is CRIMINAL. Have you ever thought of that.Trump knows this and has known this but used the hype to get a bunch of folks to vote for him. Why was the the Federal form of Government changed? Here's another clue It did'nt work as intended. To many using there office to benefit themselves and not the people that sent them there. The people sent a bunch of fellas to Washington to do there bidding for them and when they got there they did what ever they wanted and not what the people wanted. Take your own advice read a History book. Sound like someone you just voted for. Think about what you just admitted. He said first thing was jail Clinton and take the ACA down. He hasent even taken office and has said he wont do either. What else wont he do that he promised once he takes office. Your screaming about some folks following the Liberals blindly when your doing the same thing with Conservatives. Our form of Governing is not perfect but its still the best in this World if he screws us over then we get to vote him out in four years or possibly impeach him. What Socialist Country gets this power? Should this "old Man" quit bitchen NO because that's something else that makes this Country great we all get to Bitch without retaliation its a right that's given to all of us including you, him and me.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Time to debunk the Hazy Hurts again...

The short of it is this:

Your criminal girl Hillary lost. Get over it and kwityergritchin', old man.

The long of it is this:

Yes, the con man won, and he immediately has moved left to embrace the policies that your criminal girl Hillary and your socialist pals in Failuresville just love, so kwitchyergritchin', old man.

That, and you really need to crack open a real history book and learn the difference between the federal form of government we as a nation started with and kept until 1860 and the national form of government that we've had ever since (and screwed up the nation mightily along the way, too).

But then again, Hazy, you're a bitter old man socialist, so I don't expect any of that to ever happen. You're simply not bright enough.

So you're left to whining and complaining and engaging in typical liberal stereotypes, devoid of susbstance and full of crap.

So do us all a favor: kwitchergritchin', old man.

Re: “Colorado Springs Forward, the Trump presidency, helmet laws, and more

"Pam Zubeck's article was an outstanding public service."

Absolutely agree!!
And to the extent that the lack of transparency shown by CSF is mirrored by the city administration, great caution from the citizens of Colorado Springs is called for on both fronts.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

Mr. Grabbee;
Did I hurt your feelings so badly that you have to make up more brainless name-calling and insults so typical of Trump and his minions?

"so you hate half of America"

Na, not so much "hate" as simple contempt.
Half? No, not even close to half. After all, Hillary got MORE Americans to vote for her than Trump did. So that's a bit encouraging, although it does not speak well for democracy.
I guess its too much to ask, here in 21st century America, that we have a President who has enough personal integrity to NOT be enthusiastically backed by Nazis.
Your post (unless its brilliant sarcasm) reflects a perfect example of the type of individual I see as having voted FOR Trump. Now I can add Nazi to the list of "virtues" I associate with Trump voters.

Hold on! Trump put on the right show to win. He is poopin his britches right now. As far as assawatcher... graduates of college never say, I went to HS then college, duh, but you didn't claim to graduate from either. It is a crime to impersonate a veteran. ...and you were never legally married. ..but that little Bastard did turn out to be a fine young man. ...so you hate half of America, but you despise the others and you were born down the street and now ur a perv...ok!

Re: “Water contamination, the election, bigotry, and more

Ahhhh, Tannim - the resident snarker and authority in chief. It's good to be home in Colorado again so I can again begin to get you to wipe the BS out of your eyes and see what a negative you are in any sensible conversation. All the letters and comments were spot on - especially the one where you commented that Democrats have had a long history of racism and bigotry - I agree, but most of us grew out of it, and Trump has brought it back to the fore. If this is who you are then you had better hope that someone opposed to your bigotry doesn't wipe up the floor of some bar with you. Mr. Armintor's issue with Trump U goes to the issue of character - Trump is not the non-politician he claims to be - he is a dyed in the wool political actor who will say anything to get the votes of each of the mini-groups he was able to drive wedge issues between. His staff's consulting with Putin's staff after the nomination, and his daughter's use of a photo op to sell her line of jewelry, coupled with the infomercial about the Trump Hotel in Washington being a gathering place for foreign diplomats and others seeking to curry Trump's favor are lining his pockets before he is even inaugurated give me great pause. The man has no character at all. To say that Hillary Clinton is in it for herself only and ignore the fact that Trump is exponentially more toxic in that area than she is to be blinded by ideology.

UCanSee, you obviously are drinking the Breitbart Kool-Aid, too. I read a lot, I have a high school friend who was Mayor of Little Rock, and I've probed for some speck of truth in this character assassination that has gone on for three decades but have found none. Oh, that Mayor of Little Rock was the only person to actually be convicted in the Whitewater/Lewinski fiasco and is not exactly on speaking terms with his former law office partner.
