America has been conned by the PT Barnum of our time. Promising both sides they will get what they want is the mantra of a true huxter and many in this country fell for it hook line and sinker. Now as he pushes an agenda that endangers everything this country stands for as he sweetens the flow of cash back to the 1% he is a member of. How can anyone even think this man is honest on any level when he has spent his whole life cheating and disenfranchising thousands of people to amass his ill gotten fortune. Now to keep prying eyes from reporting the depth of his corruption he holds the press and media at arms length while pumping lies out at a rate that is staggering to anyone who still has a sense of what is ethical and good. Yeah I got the message that you don't like Hillary but to put this mentally ill bag of wind in charge of the nuclear codes is nothing short of suicide.
False equivalence. Diversion. A fetus is not "people."
Dear's actions are criminal. Abortion is legal. If you can't see the difference, you're not looking hard enough.
Your argument is why guys like Dear do what they do. They believe murder is justified to "save the babies." I repeat. Abortion is legal. Murder is not.
Add my name too.
Any woman that has had 3 abortions, has done the same thing that Robert dear did. Killed three innocent people.
Yes, of course and certainly a fair trial. But a costly death penalty trial should not be pursued; rather life in prison without possibility of parole, as the letter-writer recommends.
he is entitled to a fair trial......costs don't matter. this is our justice system.
PBS and NPR soiled their own nest by becoming politically biased.
just wondering what happend to the light rail that was to be coming to colo springs someone needs to bring this up in next city and county meetings as this is a major need as we really need this we are growing faster and faster. disabled senior thanks
PBS owns the rights to a lot of good shows. No reason they couldn't be profitable on their own. As for the radio, radio is dead and they could broadcast on the Internet for a LOT cheaper. Crap kids that still live with thier parents can pull off podcasting... Please. Get real people. This is NOT a travesty.
Add my name too
Add my name. This spineless repugnican will be out next election guaranteed.
Add my name as well. Spineless doesn't begin to describe my thoughts about Lamborn.
Add my name as well. I abhor the actions of this spineless so called representative. Meet with your constituents. Do your damn job Lamborn!
I read an article by Nat stein she forgot to state the most important fact about helping the homeless it is jobs. I did a short stent at the no hope center and the only thing I got out of it was an upper respirtory infection that I still have a year and half later. I have been on and off homeless for about four years. I come to the library every day and work on their computer's to find work not here in the springs but every state in the western U.S. and I have found work not here but in Idaho and south Dakota but it was seasonal. the contracted trail clean up should be done by the homeless not contracted positions. I know I'd be working it.

"This is, overall, a conservative community.
If you want to vote him out, you have to give voters a reasonable alternative."
I agree in principle. In practice, however, El Paso county GOP voters wouldn't recognize a moderate Democrat (or Republican, for that matter) if that candidate wore a sandwich board stating "I AM A MODERATE."
The majority of voters in El Paso county are not interested in moderation. They want revolution. They hate the government. They hate taxes. They hate "policy" and prefer 1950 to 2017. Any electorate that would put Gordon Klingenschmitt in office is an angry and gullible group. That isn't going to change in my lifetime.
"All things in moderation" is good advice. Sadly, it does not apply to El Paso county elections.
Congressman Lamborn is highly responsive to the concerns of his constituents.
What you fail to understand is that he feels that he only represents about 10,000 people in CD-05, and that he can get their views by only meeting face-to-face with about 250 of those. The other 700,000 in the District do not have a representative in Washington.
He has his "telephone town halls,"in which his staff selects the questions, and feeds him the answers, all out of sight of any ordinary folk.
but the people who consistently return him to office are the liberal progressive Democrats who refuse to nominate a moderate, or dare I suggest, a conservative candidate.
This is, overall, a conservative community.
If you want to vote him out, you have to give voters a reasonable alternative.
In 2006, a Conservative Democrat ran for the nomination, against Jay Fawcett and the donkey guy (Curtis Imrie.) At the CD-05 convention in Greeley, he - I - got spanked, drawing about 4% of the vote. Heck, the donkey guy got more than double what I got.
Sure, I was a flawed candidate. But as a conservative, there was at least the possibility of beating Lamborn.
When will Lamborn hold a townhall meeting in Colorado Springs...The last one was years ago/ by invitation only and in a tiny venue. Time to bombard his office with requests for an open townhall..the man never faces ALL his constituents...only the very right wing.
