Here's an idea Jimmy. Why don't you and your bleeding heart adopt all the homeless in the Springs. You don't need to take them in, but simply follow behind them and pick up all the trash they heedlessly toss around. Or, better yet, pick up all the feces deposited daily along the trail system. Or are you just talk?
See, if stupid was painful, this guy would be dead. They cannot manage money to begin with. There is NO parking there, nor will there be. The interstate is like right there. Oh what joy to be at a complete stop on an interstate ramp. This is part of the boys club wanna be's. What this article does not cover is the kick back he will be getting.
Gosh K, Stacy doesn't need any help. Did you miss the point? How obtuse.
siggie, how much is Stacy paying for your defense? Stacy, get a refund!
Stacy, it is downright democratic of you to take the word of the homeless over media pundits. Did you also take the word of the 99%-ers when they were camped out downtown?
The contemptuous K strikes again (or tries to). You have been spanked by every conservative you endeavor to edify. It will take little effort from Stacy to hand you your hat.
"Bachvilles?!?!?!?!?!" I congratulate you, Stacy. You employed just the right number of question marks and exclamation points to drive home your point. Had you added or subtracted even one of those punctuation marks, the argument would not have been nearly so convincing!
One minor detail: the article referred to a single Bachville, not many Bachvilles, because it was not meant to refer to any homeless encampments around town. It was a satirical comment on how the mayor sees the entire city of Colorado Springs.
you expect army PAO to tell the truth? LOL
Bachvilles?!?!?!?!?! That's not what the homeless call them. Last homeless camp I saw had a sign that said "Obamaville - Americas fastest growing community". I'll go ahead and take their word for it over the arrogant douchebaggery spouted by a non-sensical leftist.
If the mayor and city council think we will give them a pass if they vote to ban recreational marijuana shops in Colorado Springs, they are mistaken.
It is this kind of prohibitionist thinking that we are all working so hard to combat right now.
Marijuana is not a public safety issue...Prohibition is!

"Being shot at close range by an automatic weapon"
Semi-automatic. 1 trigger pull = 1 bang. Much the same as a revolver. Full-autos (1 trigger pull = bang, bang, bang, ...) are already highly restricted items and have not been used in any of the recent shootings.
"with a 30 round clip "
Magazine. The difference may seem insignificant to many, but to those who know about firearms it is like the difference between shoes and socks.
"Asking people, some of whom may not be mentally stabl,e to submit to a background check - - and limiting clip capacity to 15 rounds (or 10 or 7) seems prudent in an increasingly violent society. "
At first glance, universal background checks and arbitrary mag capacity limits might sound like a great idea, but even a little bit of closer scrutiny reveal them to be nothing more than snake oil and these ideas fall apart. BTW, firearm related violence has been going down for some time.
"Yes, the argument is often made there are already 250 million guns in private hands."
Over 300 million.
The truth is that for 75+ years we have passed increasing restrictions on what firearms and ammo can be owned, who can own them, and how to buy them and there is no evidence that these laws have reduced the violence problem. In fact, in the years since some of these laws expired and the number of firearms in circulation has dramatically increased, the rate of violence with firearms has dramatically decreased. So clearly focusing on the object used does not work.
We need to break this paradigm of obsessing over the object used and start addressing the behaviors and their root causes (examples: education, ethics, economics, glorification of violence). Until we do that, the problems will persist regardless of how many gun control laws we pass.
The recall effort is the appropriate action to take. When an elected official passes bad laws, stifles debate, ramrods legislation through, publicly flips the finger at the people of Colorado by refusing to even look at or listen to our voices on the issues, and is subservient to DC and NYC, then we need to send a clear message to him and others that this will not be tolerated. By making excuses about expense or that he is term limited and will be gone in a year anyway, you are giving people like him a pass to do what ever they want without fear of being held accountable.
I would never do that to you, siggie. Children can be so cruel.
K and progeny: What I think is that you turned over your responses to your 8 year old grandchild.
This is a project for Mrs. Mayor to look like she is actually doing something for the community her husband is destroying. What a joke this Mayor is.
At least the old group didnt lay down for Bach or his dirty attorney. Watching this Council is like watching paint dry.
bad and boring article, who cares?
Didnt the old Council actually vote at one time to get their own attorney? Chris Melcher put the old Council in terrible positions from almost the beginning of his employment. He has lied, gone directly to press to mislead, attends events he has no business attending, reported as ignoring Council requests for timely information, undermined Utilities and has paid out more taxpayer money to outside law firms then any previous attorney all while losing and settling millions of dollars of lawsuits. He was practically fired from Colorado College for dirty dealings and brought his unethical and scheming ways to the City. He needs to be fired.
Siggie, you must think I am clairvoyant, if you think I spent "an entire week" working on a response to your "brilliant" comment, considering your post is not yet 12 hours old. Wow, indeed!
Poor siggie, can't count, can't tell time, can't read a calendar, but tells everyone else how to live and what to think!
Wow K, it took you an entire week to come up with that brilliant comment?
