Re: “Is Gazette selling its political coverage?

So its okay to be politically biased if you don't get paid for it? Sorry, but true journalists are objective observers - something that has been increasingly lacking at the CSIndy for the last few years.

As for the Gazette, about the only truth we can agree upon is that its coverage now leans precipitously towards money - regardless of who provides it.

Re: “Is Gazette selling its political coverage?

Double duty of working for the GOP is just like running articles that end up in a book written by the Editor. The G is side stepping transparency issues (editor married to GOP political activist) by re-printing editorials from the other Anschutz owned paper and running.

To cover up the Gazette's blatant right wing stance their conservative followers cry that the paper is liberal.

PS: More like Eric Singer is trying to keep a job and stay pertinent.

Re: “Is Gazette selling its political coverage?

Eric Singer ran for office (City Council, I believe) many years ago. Sounds like he's using the Gazette and El Paso GOP to rebuild his base of support for a future run. He would be the Gazette's darling, after all...

Re: “Being Muslim in Colorado Springs

Muslims really need to try understand that they are walking dead by virtue of worshipping one of Satan's alter-egos - the idol of Baal in Mecca - to which they kneel under a crescent moon in their mosques.
The true GOD YHWH, Father of Jesus and all us humans repeatedly destroyed the followers of Baal and His Son, Jesus, repeated this is the fate of idolaters like Muslims in Revelation 22:15.
Unfortunately all Muslims have ears and eyes blocked by Satan and will not open a Bible or listen to any logic or reason and so they walk in Satanic ignorance to their destruction.

It would be a truly Christian act if anyone can get to the young women in the article and have them read Rev 22:15 or 1 Corinthians 6:9 both of which state: '9 Or do you not know that wrongdoers will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: Neither the sexually immoral nor idolaters nor adulterers nor men who have sex with men.'

Unfortunately the women will claim any such effort is hate crime just as any homosexual, lesbian or pedophile would if confronted with their fate.
So basically Muslims have to be left to walk to their doom along with homosexuals, lesbians and pedos.

Re: “Being Muslim in Colorado Springs

if you have the right to protect this country from turrorists .. try looking in the offices of elected officials ... those are the biggest turrorists which your programmed brain is unwilling to get around .. cognitive dissonance and stockholm syndrome aren't fictional concepts ..

Re: “Return of the impostor

Excellent words Laura!

"There's nothing wrong with not knowing. What is wrong is being afraid to admit you don't know, pretending to know OR NOT BEING WILLING TO FIND OUT." That's the one I think we are failing at as a society - complacency instead of curiosity, laziness instead of learning. "Perplexity is the beginning of knowledge." Kahlil Gibran

Re: “Where your stuff goes when it's gone

Really interesting article! My husband constantly rags on me about how much stuff I have and continue to accumulate. I'm also a big fan of more than giving away :-)
If worst comes to worst and you can't give the stuff away, you can just get a storage facility around here, this is a good way to find the locally-owned storage places

Re: “Where your stuff goes when it's gone

Spring cleaning in the USA was necessary because of our coal furnaces. My father told me his mother would clear almost everything out of the house and give it a good scrubbing. The entire house had to be wiped down--ceilings, walls, furniture, carpets needed to be hauled out and beat with those pretty antique carpet beaters. The culprit was the coal dust. Our spring cleaning/seasonal purges doesn't necessarily involve coal dust, but springtime is a good excuse to clean/clear out our homes, too.

Re: “Mourning along life's highway

I agree, the vast majority are not accidents, they are negligence. And it is really bothersome that several times a month we see in the news that someone died after being ejected or thrown around inside a vehicle because they were too selfish to put their seatbelt on. IMHO, deaths of people who are not buckled in should be treated as suicides and I firmly support the idea that life and health insurance should not have to pay out if the person was not wearing their seatbelt. And we really need to crack down on speeding and running red lights in Colorado Springs.

Re: “Mourning along life's highway

rt is correct, they may have been unintentional, but they are not accidents, they are almost always negligence.

And more people would live if they would simply wear their seatbelts.

Re: “Mourning along life's highway

Please stop calling them "accidents". The vast majority of motor vehicle crashes (or collisions) are the result of reckless, inattentive, or impaired driving. They are 100% preventable. Speeding, using a cell phone, or drinking before driving are all conscious decisions, not whimsical forces of nature beyond our control.

Calling crashes "accidents" diminishes the responsibility drivers have to operate deadly machinery in a safe and civil manner, and gives the impression that there's no way we can do anything about them. Motor vehicle violence is preventable, and we in the U.S. are terrible at it. 30,000+++ Americans die every year in traffic crashes & they are the leading cause of death for children. The latest estimate by the NHTSA put the monetary cost of traffic violence at 871 billion dollars. Calling those kinds of numbers accidents trivializes the very real impact crashes have on American society.

Re: “Doused with Cold Water

Apparently this "innocuous exercise, if a slightly narcissistic one," raised a bit of awareness in the form of over 2 million new donors and about 100 million bucks in 45 days. Perhaps we don't need government support, we just need to see something as actually valuable.

Re: “Lost in Choo-Choo Park

So true. They get shoved so far up the system and placed just so DHS and PO's can move onto the next next kid. These kids have mental challenges, but they are so worth the extra time, effort and energy. Society gives up so quickly. They need a plan that motivates them.

Re: “Lost in Choo-Choo Park

I wish the republicans in this city would take the time to understand that these kids are not criminals and they need help. But there are no christian republicans left, I fear.
