Re: “Shovelhead Saloon

I must say the place has taken a turn for the worst. Don't rely on my comments though, I am not afraid to be wrong.

"Spencer Penrose is probably rolling over in his grave." Was this deceased Penrose fellow a driver in past Hillclimbs? Open wheel, stock car...? Did he own that hospital too?

Re: “Letters

There will be nor has there been a President that can straighten things out so if you all have candidate you endorse then ride your Unicorn to the voting booth. Free market ceased when government started bailing out the corporations instead of letting them fold. Tax the CEOs and their underlings, don't pay them. A free market can only exist if the race is fair. Why do companys fold or move to Mexico?
As far as the city and county leaders griping about no funds my advice to them is it is not their money to spend, yet they continue to do so and it all is spent on "downtown". Dear Mr. Hazelhurst and the others who write for this rag: we don't care about "downtown" and we don't eat on the sidewalk at bistros and feed the freaking sparrows. We do not care! The sheriff should empty CJC and run every city and county council member into the cells and let them rot. They have misapropriated all the funds from taxpayers and have nothing to show for it. The police department is a corrupt good ol' boy department that seems to need a new chief every other week. Have any of you read this on the Sheriff's web site written by the sheriff himself? http://shr.elpasoco.com/NR/rdonlyres/F26D2…
He shoots straight and calls a spade a spade. I mean, what is it with humans putting other humans in cages? Sure a few belong but we have not made any progress as a race when we need more and more cages!
The letters up above here have a couple signed by "Dr" this or that yet the content of their opinions has no merit. They are Drs.? Of what?!
Simply put the system is not working and those in charge blame the citizens and Doug Bruce! Doug Bruce changed the rules and now taxpayers do not pay for every idiotic project to improve "downtown" anymore.. Utilities and city employees et al have to learn that the gravy train is at the end of the line. Utilitiies can charge what they want but that does not mean we are going to pay it. City leaders should not be paid at all especially since not one of them is qualified to run a tab let alone a city. Here is a place that seems to bash something called "Focus on the Family" yet cannot bow down quick enough to anyone wanting to promote homosexuality (you know, "gay pride", and who cares?) And if any one of them wants to really embrace reality then drop "Colorado Springs" as a name and call it what it is: Stripmall Town. The streets in my neighborhood were "paved" a few years ago and resembled a job Irish Travelers would have done yet a few days later Motor City Drive was paved and it is as smooth as silk. To save money they turned off street lights! What a bunch of brainiacs! They should stop catering to the "elite" and kissing any butt that acts like it is gonna move here and hire everyone. It is a butt and it will do the one thing a butt does, as it has done before, over and over yet city council keeps puckering its lips and expects taxpayers to foot the bill and send flowers in the morning. The sheriff wants more money because too many citizens are in cages yet not a single person asks: "Wait a minute why are so many people in cages here?"
Yeah folks, you bet, this town is going to attract businesses that will employ all of us... maybe the new business that is moving here:"The Unicorn Ranch".
Now they want an ordinance against handing money to a homeless person, downtown! (...unless it's the Mayor). It is a violation of an American citizen's Rights to ban begging, it is that simple. Churches beg every Sunday, tax-free! The homeless are unsightly? What is unsightly are the potholes on my street, gay pride parades and Sally Clark or Mayor Bachsomething blabbering.
By the way, that chunk of land west of 8th St., south of highway 24 and east of 21st was supposed to be a contaminated super-fund kind of site, it seems to be covered with townhouses now. Did I miss something?

There will not be nor has there been a President lately that can straighten things out so if you all have candidate you endorse then ride your Unicorn to the voting booth. Dream on. Free market ceased when government started bailing out the corporations instead of letting them fold. Tax the CEOs and their underlings, don't pay them. A free market can only exist if the race is fair. Why do companys fold or move to Mexico? Tax their imports so they can fold up as well.

Re: “Letters

When the looky-loos drive through perhaps they stop and say they wish they could do something-grab 'em. The fire left neighborhoods in a mess and it is the homeowner's responsibility to clean it up. The city will be sending you a notice.

Re: “Letters

Norwegian courts or any other court are not qualified to make a medical diagnosis. The courts use a legal definition of "sane" which is a merely in reality their opinion and a court's opinion changes because of every insane decision they make. Enough to drive one insane isn't it?

Re: “Letters

Janet Brazill, are you for or against Republicans and are you saying that our prisons would be full now if the birth-control pill was never invented? Being "unloved" as a child is not what lands one in prison but I won't go into that subject (and the prisons are full). I will say simply just ignore stupid comments by politicians and tell your leaders to mind their own business as our bodies are our own business. This country has allowed its leaders to much leeway and power, citizens demanding safety and forfeiting freedoms the result being the mess we live in. Your letter imitates and indicates just how bad this mess really is. I mean no disrespect to you just using your letter as an example of the confusion the political system creates. Perhaps I am confused but I do not think so.

Re: “Shot in the dark

Truly frightening that yet again the Colorado Springs Police Department would prefer to err on the side of caution which is a luxury they should not be afforded. The Department, as well as many other police departments seem to constantly demand more and more "tools" of which they claim to need to enforce laws. Those "tools" are never utilized it would seem or the "tools" are used to dismantle our Rights. Don't think it can never happen to you because it can. When it does happen, an innocent person will spend many anxiety filled months waiting on charges to be dropped due to the prosecutors vanity to save face and do not expect an apology. This is a good example of bad police work and an indication that Colorado Springs City government is lax, inexperienced and far too preoccupied with nonsense. Of course who is brave enough to speak out against an entity that can destroy you? Who can protect us from our protectors? The ultimate example of Domestic Violence yet the guilty walk away unscathed but I guess they do not see it that way, they are immune. All a part of The War that is never protested, the War on American citizens waged by its own leaders however misguided, The War on Drugs, created by a crook in The White House many years ago in his own selfish and vain attempts to become King not satisfied with the title of President. He planted the seed, the roots are now deep and we are reaping what that ignorant, hateful madman sowed.
