Re: “Oh, you shouldn't have

Called Doug's office this morning to find out if he is still a conservative. The answer I got is that he is not. He is not making any statement on what his position is. Won't say if he is supporting Boehner. His people don't know what a is? I'ce been with him for over 25 years but it is time to get off his train.

Re: “Oh, you shouldn't have

Good point, but sometimes Clara, it's not about forwarding the debate. :-)
Sometimes it's just about venting.
Plus I'm don't think anyone is debating Lamborn's assholish-ness any longer. That's well accepted fact based on empirical evidence.

Re: “Oh, you shouldn't have

Mr. Berful, you have not moved into the Springs yet and you're complaining already! You ought to fit right in.

Re: “Oh, you shouldn't have

I am moving to Colorado Springs and looking for an informative news outlet for more information on the area. This seems like a biased High School news crew trying unsuccessfully to sling mud at somebody. Grow up people.

Re: “Oh, you shouldn't have

Adolf Hitler and the Nazi Party rose to power by burning the Reichstag (the German parliament) and blaming it on the opposition parties. The innocuous remarks of the Democratic Party chairwoman hardly rise to that level. Right-wing extremists think they are being very clever, and lending weight to their specious nonsense, when they conflate such trivia with Nazism. In reality, they merely vitiate the memory of the Nazis and their atrocities.

Re: “Oh, you shouldn't have

Reichstagging is a common tactic of the democrat progressive movement. Here is an example:

This is the truth

(Denver Post) 08-26-09 - One of two people suspected of shattering 11 windows Tuesday morning at the state Democratic Party headquarters has an arrest record and a history of helping a Democratic political candidate, public records show.
Police said that about 2:20 a.m., 24-year-old Maurice Schwenkler, now in custody, and an at-large accomplice took a hammer to the picture windows displaying posters touting President Barack Obama and his health care reform efforts.

This is the democrat propaganda

(THINK PROGRESS Dot ORG) 08-25-09 - A “vandalism spree” hit the Colorado Democratic Party headquarters in Denver today, where the “vandal allegedly used a hammer to smash” 11 windows. Party Chairwoman Pat Waak attributed the violence to the intensity surrounding the health care debate, saying, “Clearly there’s been an effort on the other side to stir up hate. I think this is the consequence of it.” Waak estimated the damage at approximately $11,000.

Re: “Oh, you shouldn't have

Shocking that Lamborn pays someone he trusts, his wife, to handle the books. You know, pay bills and handle 1/2 million dollars. Should just hire some clown off the street, maybe this reporter. Also shocking he reimburses himself for mileage. This article was a waste of ink as the reporter is a waste of flesh.

Re: “Oh, you shouldn't have

Assuming that LUV2SKI's assertions about Democrats are provable -- how does that make Doug Lamborn's wrongdoings right? I know Karl Rove made the "everybody does it" into a political defense but I learned long ago that two wrongs never make a right.

Lamborn is this district's elected congressman. He owes it to this district to serve it in a responsible manner. Only then will public trust in elected officials begin to return. On the other side of the coin, words like "asshole" and "weasel" do nothing to forward the debate.

Re: “Wind farm could finally get off the ground after two companies bow out

Re: Next Era Wind Farm project:

Remember the movie The Shining with Jack Nicholson (Mr. Torrance). Torrance went to the empty bar in the hotel and said "I'd sell my soul for a glass of beer". The devil popped up (lloyd the bartender) That's what's happened in Calhan. Local residents have sold their soul for a few dollars. Sick huh ? What would it take for you to sell YOUR soul ?

Re: “Oh, you shouldn't have

Nice hit piece. Bet you're proud of that. $2772 `in misfiled interest payments - how life changing. Now go investigate how DeGette spends her campaign slush. Or Hick's use of state owned planes and state patrol pilots to ferry him and his campaign donors around the state. Or how Polis uses his wealth to dictate terms of energy regulation to the whole state. I wonder if any of their campaigns employed relatives. Not interested? Yeah, I thought so.

Re: “Oh, you shouldn't have

Democrats and Independents in this district should re-register as GOP so they can vote for a better choice in the next GOP primary. That's how we'll get rid of him. We may or may not elect some other GOP choice, but at least he'll be gone.

Re: “Cop shoots dog and residents worry

The officer should have never been in Reiter's backyard and he should be prosecuted for cruelty to animals, or equivalent charge.
If an ordinary citizen trespassed in someone's yard and shot the owner's dog they would be prosecuted.
Failure to prosecute Eckinroth for this crime will be a miscarriage of justice and will demonstrate conclusively that there are two sets of laws: one for the government and one for ordinary citizens.

Re: “Oh, you shouldn't have

I would love to see deeper investigation into this. Lameborn is an embarrassment to this district and anything that could be done to discredit him would be welcomed

Thanks Pam for getting to the facts. We knew Doug Lamborn is a weasel and you have confirmed it.

Re: “USA Ultimate moves to Springs

Ultimate frisbee is a byproduct of c4c? People will come from miles around to watch frisbee in our new stadium? Colorado Springs does have a reputation as a top sports economy, some of the greatest doping frauds in sports history have roots here. I noticed no one brags about our cities connection to Lance Armstrong anymore. The C4C developers look at CS as a future sports tourism destination, it already is, some of the nations greatest champions spent time here consulting with some of the most unethical coaches and trainers in sport. Why is Norwood trying so hard to make this a sports town? After all the time the Jenkins family spent training with famous doping coach Chris Carmichael, maybe they do know something about how to make champions. If we can somehow get these frisbee players on the juice and if they don't decide that they want no part of the new stadium like our soccer and baseball teams, then certainly taxpayers should by Norwood a stadium.
