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.

Re: “Indy joins newsrooms nationwide to report on hate with your help

Hate crimes just shot up after Trump got elected...?!
Can anyone actually dig deeper into this statement and qualify it? It is a vague and broad statement that leaves some wondering: who, what, when, where, and why, those things The Independent spends very little time bothering with. Those that wish to can say "Told ya so". Those that predict bad things and hope those bad things come to pass can quite possibly be the perpetrators of bad things. If hate is wrong and is implied to be an exclusive Right-Wing trait why are so many speaking and writing with such venom and vitriol about the president? Is that not enough to take a closer look at who might commit a hate crime? Of course it is.
Another example that I am trying to stress is how phrasing can and is intended in the first place to create a belief. While not actually having any basis in fact it is designed to allow the writer to be innocent of lying and the reader to be guilty of believing an implication of something was in fact not true. It is the now-trending wave of phony journalists not needing an editor to orchestrate the act of yellow journalism, they can write with their own biases as long as the the editor shares the same biases.
So an anti-drug web site reports that in Denver meth arrests are up 140% (approximate). So they imply to the impressionable that their whole premise of a "drug epidemic" is a fact. It had no other statement or stat on methamphetamine use being up, just arrests. Big difference. And pure propaganda. Also web sites want visitors because that is how money is made.
So the feigned concern is merely a dash at cash not unlike other "charitable" causes such as homeless shelters and soup kitchens. The directors keep some funds as salary and hope that homelessness continues. Those funds they do receive are mostly from government (taxpayers) divided up to executive agencies who while arguing about who receives how much pay themselves off the top. A lot of money wasted, no problem is solved and no crisis averted. The answer for the particular problem of homelessness is simple:buy them houses and stay out of their lives, do not make rules or set-up hoops for them to jump through. Those in government from city council on up then can work to scrap regulations that strangle growth and stifle business. The economy and free market can return which creates jobs and jobs keep people busy and too tired at days end to hate or bother to read about hate. Keeping hate, racism and bigotry is the media s job... If they were really trying to get to the source. The media is the source, they are the tool of government and government has every reason for us to stay poor and hating each other so we do not take a closer look at what they are doing.
They want you to shut up, be disarmed, afraid of saying no to illegal search and seizures, pay more tax, receive less services that you paid for and for the poor they have a tax called lottery, and your Fifth Amendment Right has been propagandized into the notion that remaining silent means guilt when it was intended to keep citizens from having to answer any questions at all at any time from authority. The work-around is the Grand Jury. Keep alive the notion that the Supreme Court makes the laws and what they say goes is almost genius.
Lets see the Independent do their dumb man on the street question sometime asking "What is The Rule Of Law" and "What Is The Law of the Land" then last not least "Who Gave You Your Rights". I will wager, if it is kept honest that few will know the answers. They know about beer and dopeand that is how it is supposed to be, huh?

Re: “Reader: Clean out the White House

WW III huh? Really? How about fight for your sanity which has taken a vacation. If you are worried about your health and everybody else' then stop stressing yourself and spreading it. If you have children then please shut up and do not feed them your fears, it would be child abuse.

Re: “Juniper Valley Ranch has a strong showing in 66th year

So what if they cannot spell "consume" or "consomme"? the writer called the area "red-dirt scrublands" when it is commonly referred to by us old-timers as the pinion-juniper country or "PJs" for short.
Highway 115 has a large population of deer and turkey so drive carefully especially at dusk. There have been an elk or two in the area as well.

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs reaches settlement in racial profiling case

Olinyks comment about Blacks that " crime sometimes seems the only way to survive" I feel needs to be addressed. An ignorant comment and a racist view or a view by someone who has had little to do with learning history. As it is said about history and not learning from it that one will repeat it. The lowest common denominators in society force us all to their level all too often.
What some do not understand is that of the many groups or cultures living here there are some that are targeted. From harassment to murder, those the United States government wishes to control are blamed for outrageous acts against "proper society" As Olinyk demonstrated in his Blacks=crime comment, government's tactics work quite well on those who do not think it through or see a pattern of behavior. Government simply studies these groups and observes what they do. When the appropriate activity is found it is criminalized. The War on Drugs began this way. Cocaine use by Blacks was demonized in the media and laws then were passed. Shortly thereafter police were shooting "crazed" Black men in the back and it was justified, thanks to a racist law. Plains Indians were forbidden to perform their private ritual known as the sun dance. And Opium being outlawed was to target Chinese immigrants. Marijuana targeted Mexicans in the 1930s. All the way to the 1960s when hippie liberal Democrats saw the criminalization of LSD and were constant targets. Humans using drugs goes back to the beginning of time and it is a boon for a government that wishes to control or eliminate certain groups. History shows that this is absolutely the case and not the way they would like you to believe.
The recent rewriting of The Civil War history is a glaring example of government propaganda and control. Suddenly the noble and valiant Northerners are the heroes who fought to free slaves. Wrong and absurd as well. Free the slaves into what? "You are free, go along now" "Go where?" "I don't know, you're free, now go, you cannot stay here because you are free. Get it?" Young white men in blue uniforms sacrificing their lives for Black slaves?? No way. The Civil War was about money, tax and trade. Ask yourself; if it was about slavery then why did it take 100 years before The Civil Rights Act was signed into law. No big rush was there?
Actual crime is generally committed by sociopaths regardless of their ancestry, social or financial standing. Using and/or selling drugs was not a crime at all until 100 years ago. Barrack Obama used drugs so was that his blackness showing? No.
Olinyks has shown nothing has changed and as wordy as he is he still cannot grasp what "profiling" means or maybe he does. He will probably tell us. I can't wait. He will help us lose Rights and live in fear of police, he will take us back to the stone age.

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs reaches settlement in racial profiling case

Olinyk! How dare you presume my levels of respect or disrespect. I asked you to guess why you may think I was profiled and a traffic stop occurred, more than once I will add. Police cannot stop someone without reason, and one does not not have to provide ID either. They asked for ID from the passenger in that car, and they had no cause. They also had firearms drawn, so should I assume it was a felony stop?
My response was not "kneejerk" and was actually a short version of what I almost posted yesterday. I will point out that your first comment was pure racist and bigoted hogwash, and one might guess you are a white supremacist just by what you stated. Would CSPD really like you defending their practices? Your answer will be quite interesting, and CSPD's would be even more so.
While you may specialize in claptrap, and the Indy is always trying to make a rose stink, I am a supporter of The Bill of Rights. There is but one race: Human. We have Rights granted by our creator and guaranteed by The Constitution. Spin it any way you wish, but your view will not stand up under the scrutiny of even the dimmest light of day. To those who are not as blond haired and blue eyed as you are, you owe an apology.
As for manners: I have them, but they will not be exercised or exhibited for the likes of you.

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs reaches settlement in racial profiling case

Greg Olinyk! They should make you minister of propaganda. And where does this slavery nonsense you spew enter in to any of this? CSPD profiles, they have done it to me and I am white. I will leave it to you Greg Olinyk to guess why.
Guns drawn for a traffic stop is a "tell". If the officers felt they were in danger they would have stayed back with their vehicle. What was the cause of the stop anyway? Driving while black?
Your whole comment is pure idiocy and nonsense.

Re: “Reader: Trump is only playing to his rich constituency

Perhaps liberals may reconsider their choices next time an election rolls around. What is worse than a Democrat president? A lawyer president. A woman lawyer president. In the list of career choices for psychopaths "lawyer" is number 2. If you think Trump is not qualified then consider this:being black is not a qualification nor is being female.
Our legacy is The Constitution and if the writer is so concerned about our legacy then perhaps you all could maybe stop fucking with that document (and The Bill of Rights are a part of it, not simple Amendments as some think.).
I too am a non-rich American, in fact I am below the poverty level. And over 60...
