"We won't stoop to his level, resort to a blast of name-calling, then shrug our shoulders and move on" . . . "this plays well to his crazy consituency [sic] in the Springs."
• "A standard joke around here is to make fun of the Republic of Boulder, well it seems like the Kingdom of Colorado Springs has taken the title of the most goofy, out of step, city in the State. Colorado Springs, you have asked for buffoons like Doug Lamborn and Douglas Bruce to represent you. ... Welcome to Colorado's laughing stock city, Colorado Springs."
@ Ralph Routon . . . . just like a leftest loon to contradict himself. Shoot the messenger often? What a scrotum sac you are! Somehow you neglect to mention that Obama vowed to calm the waters and restore tranquility in Washington. Yet, right after the convention, he turned to race baiting and set the country back 100 years; all he knows is divide and conquer, from using the communist manifesto as a pillow at Columbia. We went from the great divider to the great decider. Ralph, you're a joke! You can't see the forest through the trees!
"Greed Acres: The massive Colorado land venture that turned the Driggs boy's Rocky Mountain high into an all-time low." ~ by Andy Van De Voorde Wednesday, Jan 3 1990
yep! when established residents start pulling out, and the utility collection plate comes up short the elitists in the Broadmoor will certainly have a city worth bragging about then. It's been said that the project can't be derailed now . . . . ah ha ha ha . . . . tell that to the likes of Frank Aires, the Driggs boys, Mayor Boband the 1985 Colorado Springs City Council, and Phoenix's Western Savings and Loan who lost their ass-ets the last time Banning Lewis was being developed. Read on . . . I liked this article so much I bookmarked it. I think it needs to be shared with everyone.
how funny . . . some of it sure does hit the nail on the head but its not exactly 100% relevant; still all one needs to do is consider the source to know that Tosches is better know for his parody than his politics.
yeah go mess up somebody else's world. i'm surprised they havent kicked you out of your town i tenn if thats how you advised city council there1
why not just write the headline . . . "we at the CSIndependent order the BIG 3 to comply" Everyone should vote against continuing city "enterpise fees" and the tax hike! If you want to tax us, get our consent first! I for one am calling Jan Martin's bluff! I think they know they are going to come up short on the "Certificates of Participation" for the USOC, and they are pushing for the property tax increase to offset their lack of funding. You can bet your bottom that they are going to pull the extra funds they lack for the USOC out of the general fund, under the premise that we have no choice but to follow through or we will lose more money and now the fire and police stations are at stake. They made a bad call on the USOC, by going around the tax payers. Just because the Olympic committee held them hostage at gun point, doesn't mean that the terror tactics they are using against our community's citizens are legitimate and justified. I was under the impression they were sworn to protect us from enemies both foreign and domestic; looks to me like the majority of city council, excluding Darryl Glenn, are the real foes of our community. Let them eat dirt! There will be other ways to finance our policemen and firefighters, including MORTGAGING CITY PROPERTY, we'll take up a collection if we have to, but putting the money into their grubby little hands is not the solution, as lately they have proven their lack of prowess in regards to handling money.
"and in a civilized society, demagogues are shunned." . . . Demagogue: a leader who makes use of popular prejudices and false claims and promises in order to gain power
well, if that were the case, Obama would have never been elected; come to think of it Jim Jones would have never led all those people to Jonestown for their eventual mass suicide via the poisoned "kool aid." Maybe you make a good point after all, as people are shunning Obama in droves! The difference between Beck and Obama is that Beck does not possess the mesmerizing charisma that Obama has, nor is he the megalomaniac that Obama is. I can honestly say that even I think Beck is out there sometimes . . . but now that he has exposed Van Jones for his radical epistemology, I suspect he may wield a bigger influence over some people. If the left thought the right was going to just sit by idly while they ran nilly willy all over the fundamental ideas that made our country the great country it is today they were ill informed. Keep in mind, only 52.9% of people voted for BHO, not exactly a landslide. Politics will never be the same after the 2008 Presidential Election, Barack's campaign was one big lie, and you can bet it will only get worse before it gets better. In the meantime of the 130.5M people who did vote, that’s less than half the whole populace, the 47.1% who voted for McCain, are not just going to lye down under the Obama express. In 1787 the free farmers of western and central Massachusetts stuck a sprig of hemlock in their hats and rebelled against an economic crisis and high property taxes; their efforts were rewarded with the election of a more popular governor, an economic upswing, and the creation of the Constitution of the United States in Philadelphia. Certainly I would not condone such behavior, but some people, including Thomas Jefferson might say that "a little rebellion now and then is a good thing. It is a medicine necessary for the sound health of government.
