Just put in some wide tunnels under the road with some first class landscaping.
That road belongs to all of the citizens of Colorado Springs...not just the Broadmoor and its well-heeled members.
Amusing that we the citizens just funded a 13 million dollar addition to the zoo and now the Broadmoor is going to block access to it.
So far Anshutz has made our paper a Denver Post supplement, and now he is taking over a section of our city for himself, all while he blocks improvements to the downtown.
Send the old fart back to Denver...
"hater" the new term of the weak minded. They have overused, bigot, and then racist and homophobic and now anyone that does not think like "them" is a "hater".
Disingenuous, close-minded people like dori, only concerned with self-interest, are the ones labeling the Springs. Instead of "hating" Colorado Springs and besmirching its reputation, why don't you simply go away.
As a reminder: Amendment 2 was very simply about limiting "special rights". Only the liars, the brain-dead, the self-absorbed and the gay activists tried to make it into something it was not.
Whatever the Broadmoor wants, the Broadmoor gets. The slick Anschutz machine has already greased the necessary palms to get this atrocity approved by a compliant Council.
Who benefits? Not us! Only the Broadmoor benefits from possibly getting a high level golf tournament every five years. The neighbors, meanwhile, get hosed.
We're talking about 3% of the population being gay and otherwise sexually disordered. Colorado has fallen to perversion...so either I am right and the perves will make little economic difference, certainly not enough to mitigate my principles, or you are right and we should see a mass influx of wealthy dope smoking homosexuals that will result in high tone places to have good food and drink with very nice bathrooms.
Really TT & Siggie? You two say we aren't still known as the Hate State & home of homophobia royal when you two are the biggest HATERS on the comment board. I know from a reliable source that Colorado Springs misses out on MILLIONS in tourest dollars from LGBTIQ folks and their supporters. Forgetten about that little thing called Amendment 2 and the boycott that followed? Well for many it has never stopped and until CS shows it is a tolerant and accepting city, we will not attract the businesses and jobs that will follow. Chew on that one boys.
Obama today expressed his pride in this fellow...last week he asked God to bless Planned Parenthood and their abortion ministry...stoking the liberal base while debasing society.
That this is important for us to know, that this guy is pulling a career saving stunt, is very pathetic.
Simply amazing the author of the article neglected to post the selections and links from the website. It was quite clear the website did not compare homosexuality to kleptomania.
Weinstein has a history of this kind of thing, though. He's rabidly anti-Christian, which is his choice, but it makes him a bigot. This is a case of the pot calling the kettle "black".
Do a quick search on his name, and you'll find plenty of background information on Mikey. he tried to sue the USAF and the judge threw the case out, citing the fact that NO ONE in the USAF, nor formerly in the USAF was complaining. Mikey had to make the complaint up out of whole-cloth.
Nice guy. Really.
He needs to be fired and replaced. He hates Christians and most of the things he says sounds like Hitler talking about the Jews. This man needs to be FIRED!!
Dang Rod, that is gross and yet, somehow, amusing.
The butt-hole to which you refer is likely Michael Jackson.
Skin lightening products? You mean, like, butthole bleach?
It had to happen:
I am not a religious guy, so I see this from a strictly pragmatic perspective. I believe, instead of wasting time with all of this "tiptoe through the tulips", non-competitive, inclusive BS, why don't we go back to teaching the three Rs? Instead of a phony sense of self, wouldn't it be better to have an actual education which could compete with other nations?
Inclusive means that rather than teaching values that will have your student function successfully in the world, life is a moral free for all...no wonder when you drive by your school the boys don't know how to wear their pants right and girls are all showing their stomachs to the public, just for starters.
You can insist that God has changed his creational intentions and recreate him to reflect your perversions, but they are still not of God, blessed, or acceptable...not matter how excited about your coming out your friends are...or how many polls heap praise and approval.
Awesome thank you for sharing this.
apologies for the double comment - clumsy internet usage!
"I see by the papers" that in spite of the efforts of those who organized and participated in the Unity Fest that you are still taking issue with the event. Perhaps you fail to realize that the GSA at Palmer (Now the GSTA [Gay-Straight-Trans Alliance]) has worked tirelessly to embrace tolerance and NOT have their 'sexual preferences up each other's noses.' At the same time the club has worked to promote anti-bullying of all types at school, regardless of race, gender, creed, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, transgender status, physical and mental abilities or disabilities. Embracing gays and lesbians is embracing humans - and if one chooses NOT to embrace other human beings - well then that is fine - but the GSTA does not shun anyone - in fact they are a welcoming group of students -as are all of Palmer students.
When the lawsuit with D-11 was settled in 2005, ALL student led clubs were promoted and allowed to form - including "The Forge" a club devoted to prayer and discussion of Christianity. As also noted the Fellowship of Christian Athletes also now exists at the school - as does a Korean Club, an Eco Club, Masque and Sandal (drama), National Honor Society, MESA (math and engineering), and a national honor society for social studies; among dozens of student led clubs. What you may feel to realize is that schools are doing what they can to insure that students feel connected to the school - because students who feel a connection with the school tend to be more successful.
I treasure the fact that students with a variety of opinions are welcomed at Palmer High School. There are those that choose to embrace lesbians, gays, bisexual, transgender, questioning, straight, tall, short, skinny, over-weight, black, white, Hispanic, hearing-impaired, blind, autistic, developmentally challenged, rich, poor, Christian, Muslim, Jew, agnostic, atheist and everyone in between. Palmer embraces those who hold contrary opinions - even those that may be ill-informed.
I have taught at Palmer for the past 24 years, and I am a proud co-sponsor of the GSTA, and I volunteer for the Pikes Peak Safe@Schools Coalition. I am the proud parent of one alumni of Palmer and a current student at Palmer. The CSHS/PHS Alumni Hall of Fame boasts some of the cities most influential people including doctors, lawyers, nationally known scholars, scientists, educators, local politicians and civil rights pioneers. One can look at the pictures of the members of the alumni hall of fame and one can see great diversity. Frankly schools are far more inclusive today than they were 30 years ago - especially in Colorado Springs. Though one can look through old yearbooks of Colorado Springs High School/William J. Palmer High School and find that there was inclusiveness that goes back well over 135 years. As the sign above the old Cotton Club in Colorado Springs owned by Hall of Fame Member Fannie Mae Duncan, used to say "Everybody Welcome." That's hardly shoving anything up anyone's nose.
Oh TejonTech you poor, poor sad troll, whose arguments are full of fallacies, anger, racism, sexism and all things wrong with the world. It is you who will be held responsible for war, terrorism and chaos. For it is you who has no vision, no laughter and no beauty in life or for life. It will be you who aides in the destruction and the killing of decent and moral people- while these kids will continue to fight for love and happiness and morality and UNITY. Get over yourself. You got a rise, the next time you try for one, I dearly hope no one in your way gets harmed because you are to selfish and angry to control yourself.
