Re: “The battle for Nevada Ave., animal abuse, Clinton and Trump, and more

Mr. Mckeown - the old north end, who are connected, are having cascade by CC brought down to one lane "for safety concerns".

You make an excellent point about there being a whole bunch of meetings to 'listen', community input committees padded with the Mayor minons and PR specialists who 'collect' ideas and concerns that do nothing other than claim the citizens were involved while the plans are laid, the concerns not addressed and we are told you had your chance because there were meetings.

I do like the idea of the Trolley down Nevada and into OCC and Manitou.

Re: “The battle for Nevada Ave., animal abuse, Clinton and Trump, and more

Richard McKeown:

I applaud you for your foresight in not buying a home on a major corridor (Colorado Ave.), if the types of things you are griping about bother you. But why did you decide to buy a home on another major corridor (Nevada Ave.)? I think the Old North end is beautiful, and I like the nice raised medians. I also like the mixed use along Colorado Ave, as it benefits the side streets in the rest of the neighborhood, even if it makes the main corridor less picturesque. I'm not sure whether the city's plans for Nevada are the right thing to do or not, as there are advantages and disadvantages, but I am sure your letter is a NIMBY letter.

She only mentions Spanish-Colonial Art. What about all of the Native American & other southwest pieces?

Bill W.

I wasn't trying to convince you. I want to show people how dangerous this bill is. Massachusetts had the same bill 4 years ago and the voters defeated it.

One of the strongest arguments put forward then was by Ted Kennedy's widow, who called this kind of bill "cruel.". Here it is:

Re: “School is no Bible-free zone

This happened today at Northglenn High School. 09/29/2016. I confronted one of the men about my concerns as a parent and how they hang around a school and give out bibles. I told them it's not right that they hand out anything without a parent's approval. I wasn't there to agree to it, so they are in the wrong. I'm very angry that they reserve the right to hand out anything. For all we know one of these men may be a pedophile. Seriously, how do we know? It's how us parents view this. We have to protect our children from everything and for these men to put fear into the parent's eyes and showing us that anyone can do this outside of school grounds is concerning that the state and federal government are letting this happen. Isn't there such a thing as 'Parent's Rights'?

Re: “Colorado voters can make the choice much easier for patients like Sheryl Randall

Tannim:

If you give someone a gun and a map of a jewelry store with instructions on how to rob it, you are as guilty as the person who performs the physical act.
If a doctor gives someone a poison with instructions on how to take it, that is being a party to the act of killing a human being.

By the way, calling them "pharmaceuticals" is not honest.

Re: “ATTN: Cyclists. Tell the city you want these bike lanes.

Where is the money coming for all these bike lane improvements? I wish they would fix the roads so they were in a decent and safe condition to begin with before they start adding perks for bicycles. There is just too much traffic and too many unmaintained roadways to expect there to be warm and fuzzy feelings for drivers towards cyclists. It is difficult enough navigating the roadways without having to watch for people weaving around on bikes on major roads.

Re: “ATTN: Cyclists. Tell the city you want these bike lanes.

Terrible idea and here is why traffic will get heavier, more accidents not to mention we are a state with season, when it rains or snows I dont see bikes. Also there is a side walk on both sides of the street for walkers and bikers alike. Sorry but there are more vehicles being driven at one time then bikes.

Re: “Manitou raises fees and fines for Incline parking

Blaming the Mantitou Springs City Council's greed on TABOR simply shows that"Vietnamized" has no idea what he's talking about. If they were really concerned about first responder access, then they would simply ban parking on Ruxton completely, not raise fees and fines.

No. it's about money and trying to convert Manitou into Boulder South.

Re: “The battle for Nevada Ave., animal abuse, Clinton and Trump, and more

Richard McKeown: Of course the city staff sees no need for raised medians, because they have zero concept of General Palmer's vision or why they were installed in the first place. Six lanes on North Nevada through the North End is a stupid idea, undoubtedly. Best to leave it as is, but Suthers is too stupid to understand that sometimes the best thing to do is nothing.

Carl Silverman: You can have your fruits and nuts. I'll gladly make up for your vegetarianism with a medium-well steak smothered in mushrooms and onions.

Susan Tomblin: Ask yourself: Do you want the nuclear codes stored on an unclassified email server in a closet somewhere, just for the convenience of a career felon? Yes, Trump is bad, but Hillary is just as bad. That's why SANE people vote for Gary Johnson.

Len Bentley: Your definition of Ineptocracy is correct. So is your diagnosis of the real problem. The solution is Gary Johnson and the Libertarians, now playing at an election booth near you.

Steve Snyder: What is behind the anti-69 movement is simple common sense. We can't afford it, delegating medical decisions to an unaccountable board in Denver is simply a bad idea, worse than ACA, and 69 as simply giving oneself cancer to cure hypochondria. As for 70, the minimum wage is only a good idea if you like to see taxes and prices and unemployment go up and the valuation of skills and experience go down.

Gina Douglas: The only candidate who apologizes is Gary Johnson. That makes him the best candidate.

Re: “Our local leadership monoculture

Sorry, HazyHurts, but I'm choosing Gary Johnson, along with the voters in this country who, unlike yourself, have a brain and haven't overdosed on the Stockholm Syndrome Kool-Aid (comes in red and blue colors).

The rest of your rant is your usual recycled nonsense that you've been spewing for two decades.

Re: “Lawsuits take aim at chemical giants over poisoned drinking water

These suits are likely to be dismissed because they are suing the wrong people. The real problem isn't the FPC manufacturers, but the USAF.

Also not mentioned was the use of these PFCs in the 1996 Mesa Ridge Tire Fire...

Re: “When it comes to campaigns around amendments, there are Davids and Goliaths

Money aside, both 69 and 70 are bad ideas. In fact, with the exceptions of 106, T, U, and Palmer Lake 301, every ballot issue should be voted down this election.

Re: “Colorado voters can make the choice much easier for patients like Sheryl Randall

Maybe Willie Nat ought to read the initiative. It doesn't give the doctors the legal power to kill anyone (a power incorrectly and immorally delegated to government!), but it does allow them to prescribe the pharmaceuticals for the patient to self-administer.

I wish people who are so adamant about dictating to others what they can and can't do with their lives would simply STFU and go away.

Re: “Proposition 106: The Colorado End-of-Life Options Act

Mr. Nat:

None of the flaws pointed out (by yourself or Mr. Williams) is fatal to Proposition 106. Could it be better? Possibly. Is it better than nothing? ABSOLUTELY.

You don't like Prop 106. Understood. However, you have shown no flaw serious enough to vote against it. You've had a chance to convince me that it's not worth considering. You have only convinced me that you won't vote for it.

You are right. It is literally a matter of life and death. That's why I will vote for it.
