If the recall effort is nullified because of a legal technicality, someone's consulting lawyer ought to be disbarred. Like I said, how dumb are you to sign a petition when you don't even know in which district you live?
I appreciate the effort of the men and women fighting this fire, we owe them a huge thanks for risking their lives. NOW.....for the supervisors that are suppose to be responsible for protecting us again wild fires. Once again they screwed up! I realize that its not easy to predict a wild fire, but didn't they learn a thing from Waldo Canyon. I was near Garden of the Gods on Sunday before Waldo Canyon blew up. They had one chopper dropping water on the fire. If they had been serious about fighting Waldo Canyon, they would have had more resources working the fire on Saturday and Sunday and Waldo Canyon might never had gotten out of control.
Now once again, we have the same issue. I saw the smoke about hour after the fire began and I did drive up to Black Forest. There was some people fighting the fire, but not nearly enough........don't they get it!!! They should have had a agreement to bring in all local resources once a fire in a wooded area began.
What really ticks me off are the media briefings that they had. It was one big Kumbaya butt kissing fest about how they were working so well together and what a great job they were doing and sheriff Maketa was leading the song and dance. Maketa kept starting his media love fest by the number of houses they saved, not by number of houses destroyed by their lack of action. Due to the incompetence of these people we will lose close to 1000 homes in about a year. If in their minds this is doing a good job of fighting wild fires, maybe we need new people to protect our city.
Fantasy land...morse is gone, run out of town on a rail.
Shades of the old Soviet Union, reporting on the a sports event where the USA won and the USSR came in second.
TASS reported that the US came in next to last and the USSR came in second.
So it goes with Mayor Botch's propaganda ministry.
Hows about getting Jay Carney?
the old technicality nullifying the result. poor repubicans... missed it by that much.
Over 37 percent of the submitted signatures were invalid. What a bunch of morons who don't even know if they are registered to vote in District 11. Oh, you mean Senate District 11? Duh. They probably think Al Gore is still VP.
They have to give us that award or else we'll nuke 'em. (:->)
We need to hire Joe Izuzu to be the City's spokesman. He has more credibility than the current crop of hacks and flacks.
The signatures to be gathered was never in question - and it will take a huge turnout from District 11 voters opposed to John Morse to make this recall happen. We do not think it will be successful. If you would like to volunteer to assist in the process to encourage voters to keep Senator Morse in office, you can sign up below.
If you would like to participate in the on-line Marijuana Survey: Allow or Ban, soon coming before city council, please indicate in the comment section of the registration from and we will be happy to forward it to you. Thank you.
What we need is a list of all the best Colorado beers...these guys have obviously never tried Eddy Line for example.
Boo! I cry foul! Those macho drinkers will think again when all the hops affect their estrogen levels!
It will be up to the Indy to dig deeper into this fire story. Why were there only 150 firefighters fighting the fire a day and a half in but over a thousand when it was almost put out? Why was the county so grossly unprepared for a fire in the Black "Forest"? Was internal advice ignored? The local tv will not do this story. For them this was just a news event. Sheriff Maketa was a hero. There were lots of silver linings and endless "how do you really feel questions?"
Mark is one of the hardest working Representatives that I have met lately; having met 4 in the last year and asking them all about their agenda's (ok, maybe 5) and he is all business and trying to best represent the wishes of the God-fearing people of this state to perpetuate and increase the goodwill of the people.
It's been almost a week and still NO word on the deceased persons.
What's up with that?
Sad too that Stone threw in w/ the big boys to keep the herba buena illegal in Cali.
So sad that 80% are IPAs.
Curious. 'The Loopy one'. That covers a huge number. Which one?
had breakfast in woodland park yesterday. a firefighter, he made sure all around him knew this, stated the fire was started as a controlled burn. has the loopy one's arson squad been busy?
Donations don't go to the victims...other than bottled water...the feed the administration fat cats and redecorates their offices...
