Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

Stormwater runoff is a development problem - thus developers should be paying for any problems that occur.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Mr k.

I never called Hillary a global terror threat. I stated that working with Russia to contain a global terror threat, has proven productive in the past.

WOW.... your ability to cherry pick and toss around clichs at the same time is both impressive and impotent. Quite the achievement.

Do you even know what a Marxist is, or is that a term you heard 45 years ago and never bothered to research?

Your response is a textbook example of - Ignoratio Elenchi

How long has it been since your lobotomy?

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Mr.b, I do not agree that Hillary Clinton was ever "a global terror threat" and Moscow's candidate has denied any connection with the Russians. President Roosevelt, on the other hand let everyone know what was going on every step of the way and proceeded only with popular approval.

Furthermore, so-called "American prejudice" when the war ended was in favor of the Soviet Union, not against it. It took a lot of hard work, including the infamous McCarthy Hearings, to turn popular sentiment around.

For a Marxist, you certainly are clueless when it comes to Soviet history.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

mr.b asks, "Have you ever considered that both parties are working for the same corporate sponsors?"

LOL! Are you just finding out now? I stumbled on to that fact about 45 years ago, only the so-called "corporate sponsors" were known as the Ruling Class back then.

So, how long have you been a Marxist?

Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

This phenomenon you describe - did that begin to appear during the Rivera administration and grow rather rapidly through Bach and exponentially with Suthers?

Re: “Addressing poverty on the Springs' Southeast side

Patience is addressing one of the toughest issues in Colorado Springs. Dave Gardner talks about the urban sprawl and why that is a problem but, he doesn't go into detail about why it is happening. What we just witnessed on November 8th had been lying the underbelly of America for the last 8 years. Voters not only felt left out, but they also felt that their ecosystem was being challenged. Patience did a great job of outlining what we've seen and grew up with on a daily basis in Southeast Colorado Springs. This type of reporting can only bring clarity and understanding to the everyday issues we face.

Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

Could this be a lame attempt at starting the 'marketing campaign' to gain public acceptance for the mandatory stormwater fee that will be imposed by city council after the election?

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Mr K.

Working with the Russians to combat a global terror threat, is also reminiscent of the F.D.R, Stalin relationship that ended the Nazi threat. Folks called F.D.R. Stalin's puppet as well. Truman on the other hand caved to American prejudice against the Russian's, as well as, his own Napoleon complex and effectively laid the ground work for the cold war.
Truman was more Clintonesque in that way.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Mr K,

I brought up F.D.R because he is the god of all things liberal. Trump's policies on almost every matter echo that of F.D.R almost exactly. So it seems as if he is acting like a Democrat, or maybe just a spoiled 1 percenter, Trump and F.D.R. do have that in common as well.

Have you ever considered that both parties are working for the same corporate sponsors?

The propaganda that this country is reacting to in such a polarizing way is absurd and designed by the corporate elite to divide and conquer.

Stay angry and prejudiced against your fellow citizens, stick to your own little club and never deviate from the opinions they assign you. You make an excellent sheep Mr.K.

Good job cherry picking though. I list F.D.R, Carter, Bush and Obama as having similar policies, and you only see Bush.

The joke was funny to me; still is.... I tend to think for myself though and wasn't looking for your approval. You are not the decider in chief when it comes to my thoughts.

Keep drinking the Kool-aide Mr.K, it's good fuel for your misplaced anger.

Re: “UPDATE: AFA agrees to pay $25,000 to settle FOIA lawsuit

$25,000 would have paid for 208 days of record searching, at $15/hour. Maybe the AFA should have just provided what was requested instead of stalling.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

If you need to explain the punchline, mr.b, the joke is a failure. If the immigration ban "is really more along the lines of the Carter, Bush and Obama bans..." then why did you have to reach way back to World War II to find your absurd analogy? Furthermore, if Putin's lackey is acting like Bush, how is that "acting like a Democrat?" In other words, mr.b, your post is neither funny nor logical.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Bill:

That was an attempt at a little humor.... The punchline is that after only one week in office he is already acting like a Democrat.

Trump's ban is really more along the lines of the Carter, Bush and Obama bans of the recent past; however, Trump's looks to be significantly shorter.

Keep your anger focused, take your soma (it will help with the paranoia), and await further instructions from Madonna....

A very well written and informative article about an extremely important issue. The more attention this issue is given hopefully will bring about much needed assistance and positive changes. Patience you are doing an amazing job.

Re: “Marijuana Working Group close to solidifying new policy recommendations

These are very near sighted recommendations, as our population is growing by leaps and bounds due to the green rush in part at least, and to limit dispensaries this way only helps the dispensaries already in place, not the patients, and the patients should come first...
