Re: “Cannabis clubs mobilize, take on anti-marijuana legislation

Old Guy.
The issue is these clubs are illegally "selling" recreational cannbis. The city of Colorado Springs prohibits the sell of recreational cannabis. They are having people "donate" $25 to them and in return getting weed. Or having people "buy points" 1 point = $1 and they can then use their points to buy cannabis. Hence why they are an issue... People "donating" for cannbis don't need a medical card like the city requires to buy within the city limits.

Re: “Suthers preaches against MJ legalization in Arizona

From my understanding, Suzanne, you have a right to live in peace in your own home. On the other hand, the grower has rights, also. Find some common ground.

Re: “Our special district conundrum

Can't run a government without funds, and, if I remember correctly, Mr Miller, you're the one who called for a level playing field. Special districts are far from fair and equal as far as beneficiaries are concerned, and JH make a good point for equanimity within the city limits.

I'm not into raising taxes, per se - but I'm not a Grover Norquist "let's shrink the Federal Government to a size where we can drown it in the bathtub" fan either...and that looks and sounds like what Jailbird Bruce had in mind when he penned TABOR and ran that con into the Colorado Constitution.

My suggestion? Raise the city sales tax. Sales tax is indeed the only fair tax because it is a use tax - you buy a clunker, you pay tax on a clunker. You buy a Lamborghini you pay tax on a Lamborghini. Sounds fair enough to me. For that matter, let's do that nationwide and put the Federal deficit to rest. Oh, and all you rich "patriots" - no more hiding your dollars offshore!

Re: “CSPD cop later charged with racketeering is allowed to stay on to qualify for a pension

When there's no accountability there's a big hole in the system - this hole is HUGE! Who polices the police?

Re: “Local election poll unsurprising

That Trump is still in the race after all that he has said, and after stonewalling on releasing his tax returns, I'm forced to question the "reasoning" that led the Repubs into this morass. Colorado Springs didn't produce anything newsworthy in the polls other than to show their unmitigated hatred of anything populist.

Re: “The great big Postal Service lie

Mr. Hightower! It was an honor to meet you in San Angelo at a Dem Party meet arranged by my late, close friend, Perry Flippin. I had suffered a heart attack a few days earlier, and the heat at the crowded venue didn't help my condition, so I had to leave early...but back to the Postal Service. You are absolutely correct that the USPS has been torpedoed by the very competitors (can we spell UPS and FedEx?) through their minions in Congress who are bought and paid for.

I for one have had problems with UPS damaging a family antique then refusing to take responsibility for it, and FedEx ain't spotless, either. For my money the USPS is the only way to fly!

Re: “Trump's true colors, nurses for ColoradoCare, secrecy and the mayor, and more

Tannim...What's Aleppo? And what does that level of international ignorance mean to you? I was a Bernie supporter, but I'm also a realist - Johnson can't win, Stein can't win, and under no circumstances I can imagine can or should Trump win. Look up the clinical definition of sociopathy/narcissism anywhere you choose - if there was a picture next to it that picture would be of Donald Trump.

I have no desire to live in the police state he proposes. I have heard nothing constructive in any of his divisive rants, I haven't seen his tax returns yet (he has business dealings all over the world - who really owns him and what would that mean to our democracy?), I have no desire to see his family-style primped and airbrushed nepotism in the White House, and his stance on nuclear weapons is TOTALLY UNACCEPTABLE.

This egocentric buffoon needs to have his ass handed to him on election day by Hillary Clinton. I'm not a huge fan of hers, but damn, son, use your head! The Ship of State will continue to sail regardless of who wins the election, but there are going to be casualties overboard...let's try to minimize the damage.

Re: “Suthers preaches against MJ legalization in Arizona

I'm curious as to what response you get. I have sent them a request as well. Would like to compare responses. So far the first reply was vague and they offered no documentation. I've responded accordingly and asked for some actual proof as to what entity paid for his Arizona trip.

Re: “CSPD announces "do it yourself" policing policy

Perhaps if the Mayor wasn't squandering all of the citys resources for his personal agenda against weed? Just a thought...

Re: “How to dig a hole and build a mountain

Glad to see the stormwater BMP's in place and the Clean Water Act-related permit through city engineering in place. It is a good day when a pile of dirt is a big enough story to make the news.

Re: “Tyler Durden returns

Thanks to great Dr Keke Odin . I Judy Williams is so happy to let the whole word know how this powerful spell caster saved my marriage. Everything was going down the drain as my husband can not stop cheating on me with other women. It became used to always heating on me. I tried to make him stop, but I couldn't help the situation, the more I tried, the harder it becomes. At times we will fight and go apart for some months and we will come back again just because of our kids and his financial assistance and treatment to my sick mother. One day a friend told me about this spell caster who helped her too, his name is Dr Keke Odin, she said he uses power to solve spiritual problems and she send me his contact email which is greatkekespelltemple@gmail.com. I decided to give it a try, I contacted him and he told me it will take just 2 days and I will see great changes in my husband. He actually cast a spell, believe me after 2 days of casting the spell, my husband was confessing everything he did and how he realized his mistakes. He begged for forgiveness and never to try it again. From that day till now, my mind is at rest. My husband dislike every other women on earth except me. Am so happy to have my husband back for myself alone.
The spell caster's contact is greatkekespelltemple@gmail.com or call him now +1386-336-9876

Re: “DUI, gang and other units shift to the streets as crime rates surge, response times lag

Lots of cops out giving tickets today. First time I have seen them all year. Guess that fills the city coffers much better than sitting behind a desk.

Re: “Millibo's value, road rage and bicyclists, Trump, Stein and 69

Passing Amendment 69 will have two immediate effects: an exodus of health care providers who don't wish to work for a medical "minimum wage", and an immediate and potentially unfair increase in state taxes/fees - even on income items that weren't previously taxed. Living on a fixed income? Too bad - they're coming for it. Oh and don't forget those 512,000 people currently getting SNAP benefits, as you'll be paying for their health care too.

Re: “Suthers preaches against MJ legalization in Arizona

Suthers is admitting that the rights of the voters are being taken away at the local legislative level not for health or safety but because they don't like it.

Living next to a LARGE residential grow. NIGHTMARE. There is no consequences or compliance by these growers.

Re: “Couple wants dogs who bit back, saying there's more to the story

For God's sake - park the drama! I can match article for article about the origin of the breed. At the end of the day it's about the owners' understanding of the breed and the treatment of the animal that predicts the nature of the dog. Pick your pet staying within your limits of ability to understand EACH INDIVIDUAL DOG! There. How's that? All of my experience (not the written word) with this breed had been positive and loving. You'll get out of your dog what you put in the dog and no, I don't feel at all responsible for anyone else's decision to own this breed because I don't know the temperament of the dog's owner. Since the owner is largely responsible for the dog's behavior, feeling responsible for a specific animal's actions is ridiculous and shows major bias based on what is read about the breed. Trashing an entire breed because of an individual dog's actions is at the very least narrow minded. The folks who rescued this animal know the most about the nature of their pet since they rescued him. We can argue all day about the particulars and it means nothing as to the outcome of this saga. I hope all involved are pleased with the outcome as I've no more inclination to use this thread as a personal debate source.

Re: “Suthers preaches against MJ legalization in Arizona

Liquor, though -- that's to be celebrated amirite!

Maybe the COS mayor should worry more about COS, less on controlling the bodies of people in other states.

Re: “Pollution control equipment protested

This woman is nuts. She WANTS rolling power outages?!?!? I guess she does because that is WHAT will happen if we lose Drake before they can get replacement infrastructure in place, which will be about or around 2035.

Re: “Local election poll unsurprising

If you think "cracking" the 2 party system will stop things being about $ and favors, you are delusional. Additionally, if there ever were a string 3rd or 4th party, the result would be the coalition governments found in Europe which fall apart all the time. Also it would be very likely that nobody would receive enough votes resulting in the President being chosen by the House of Representatives.
