GOP means Graveyard Of Principles. Cannot make any city great again until the people remove TABOR, the GOP, and all special interests the GOP caters to.
People who don't understand why people marched don't want to understand why people marched. The marchers are not hysterical and certainly not uneducated.
I know scientists and artists that marched because programs are going to cut. I know moms who marched with their daughters to say it is important to be involved.
Hopefully it will motivate the millions who don't even bother to vote to see that their votes do matter.
Great thanks to Patience for turning attention to these issues, and most importantly, giving us a way to help right now. I agree with KB Girl above, too many residents of COS drive around not just statistical blights-- but people-- they don't want to see. I am so excited to see Denverworks in our community, helping these young men and women succeed. I hope to see more articles like this in the Indy, and more updates from Food Rescue too, addressing the needs of the SE side, and advancing locally derived solutions.
As a mother of two young African American boys, I relate strongly with this writer. I agree, the responsibility falls upon all of us to raise up Colorado Springs' children in a collectively healthy and socially responsible city. Any city "eye sores" or statistical blights must be owned by every resident, whether north, east, south or west (yes you can join the effort too OCC and Manitou folks!) We are far too comfortable driving around the southeast side of town and turning a blind eye to our black boys who need us all to expect greatness from them. Thank you Patience for drawing attention to our city's Diversity & diverse needs!
No puppet...........No puppet.
Tannim "Modern Adults" thats funny being were going backward.
the race to third world status has begun. we don't need epa or health care... the p***y grabber chump and the repubics will take us there in hyperdrive.
Really grateful for Patience covering this news and what it all means for Colorado Springs!
Actually, I rather like the idea of bringing the grizzlies back.
I really don't see this as Mr Skorman seeking a "fitting ending" to his story. After all, he is only 64! I see him as a dynamic man with a truly inclusive vision for our community. Wish I lived in District 3.
Dook hut No fapping
So, did the Clinton or Obama administrations deny the press access to the White House? No.
Was this ever done under the Bush administration? Again, no.
So what we have here is simply Mr. Tannim's personal bias trying in vain to pass for logic. Then again you do not need to adhere to any journalistic standards at all, do you, Mr. Tannim?
I love your truth Julie, and happy you're bringing this out. This is an issue in the running community at all ages!
"dismisses half of the nation as 'deplorable'" she did not thus you are proven liar already tannim
Mr. Tannim, your thought processes are so Hazy, it Hurts to read through your post.
Recently, I was called out on this blog in another thread for protecting my anonymity. Mr. Tannim just reminded me of another reason I use a screen name. I prefer not to be subjected to puerile puns upon my name by ideologues who cannot defend their prejudices with facts and logic.
We marched because we have been listening carefully to the words that spewed directly from the mouth of Putin's lapdog. Mr. Tannim posts his drivel over hysterics from a pack of alt-right lies.
Mr. Tannim, you would not recognize a fact if it bit you on the butt. That's the bottom line.
I think the faux in your claimed libertarian stance is showing tannim.
The level of clueless derpishness is legion in these sheeple...
They marched over hysterics from a liberal pack of lies, and never bothered to dig into the facts.
That's the bottom line.
Susan Gordon: Well said, and I hope that the ongoing PFC problem doesn't cause your farmer's market to close down again this year, although I understand if it has to.
Paul McNeill: Build the museum all you want, but don't try to force the people to pay for it through taxes or government.
Kent Obee: They don't get the priorities.
Brent Weiner: Yes, good riddance to 2016, indeed; it was a crappy year for the most part. However, your lauding of big government is something else that needs to begone.
Once again Hazy Hurts spews his nonsense.
He assumes linear growth. That's never the case. He fears growth because growth brings success, and he hates success and growth.
He is unable to use the term, "President Trump." It's because he can't accept that the world has changed in ways he can't handle, in ways far beyond his capacity to process or adjust to.
He uses terms like "feral billionaire" because he hates success and can't stand a differing viewpoint.
In short, he's a bitter old man, a has-been of the local political scene that has moved far beyond him, desperate to stay relevant instead of staying on his porch yelling at kids to get off his lawn.
So here he rants about an 8-step plan to harm the state. It's not satire, folks, even though he's trying to present it as such.
And it exposes the true liberal agenda of destroying all that works in favor of what doesn't to reach their dystopic version of utopia.
Sorry, Johnny, but your time has long past. You lost. Get over it.
Here's a participation ribbon and a coloring book. Now go home and let the modern adults run things, not the worn-out hippie commies like you.
