Re: “CSPD suspended from military surplus program based on accountability glitch

Sounds more like sour grapes on your part. I havent seen or heard of any fraud charges or even accusations of fraud leveled at her except from you or the folks shes reported on. If you know of any please do tell. Sure seems reporters like her are the ones that bring to light the karma thats deserved.

Re: “CSPD suspended from military surplus program based on accountability glitch

Ya know Mr. Holmes thats a damn shame to even think something like that. First off its her job and duty to report the things that go on in our community and with our public servants. Second there was a time when most reporters took there job to that level and felt it was a duty. I for one am glad she does because otherwise we wouldnt know about these things. Last I hope our police force wouldnt be that petty or chicken shit. They have a duty as well.

Re: “CSPD suspended from military surplus program based on accountability glitch

Suthers has done a lot. Hes secured the backing of every developer and rich folk in the County so he can make a jab at higher office. Hes gave away public land, hes raised our taxes to one of the highest in the Nation, hes fixed three pot holes on his street and hes convinced a big portion of the populace that hes great. What more do you want from a Mayor.

Re: “Strawberry Fields, farm animals, Wayne LaPierre, Donald Trump, and more

There it is Robert in your own words "TRAINED TO ARMS" Whos training them and how do you prove it in a society with so much gun play and deaths. Thats the conversation that needs played out. The Second amendment period attitude ant getting anything done. It hinders any type of true liberty for honest folk. Got to use some type of reasonable attitude towards the ownership and rights to something people use to hurt so many others.

Re: “Lamborn votes against vets' access to medical marijuana

What would truly be effective is treat people as individuals. Treat the person as well as the disease. Watching the VA treat my Uncle its like one size fits all.

Re: “Maketa and cohorts face charges including kidnapping

Guru do you honestly think they will be convicted? In this County its highly unlikely they couldnt even get that pervert recalled. His bail for kidnapping is as low or lower then someone with an infraction that hurts no one. If you or I were do the things he has done our bail would have been so high even Trump couldnt afford it. Im surprised a grand jury even got to hear the case. If the State takes over the case maybe but in this County very unlikely. Look at the millions he has already cost the taxpayers he will walk and so will his buddies.

Re: “Colorado voters gambled on pot and TABOR, but will they go for single-payer health care?

Well lets think about this. Employers are right now paying more then 10% for health care so 10% could be a bonus. Could this end workmans comp? After all if all are insured why would another be needed. If thats the case then a shit load of employers are going to flock here. Doctors are having trouble getting paid thats why Obama care was popular with many of them. Guaranteed payment would retain doctors.Wouldnt it? Most insurance companies make deals with the Hospitals and Doctors on the price of procedures so that wouldnt be anything new. Most of the studies are funded by grants through the University so Im not sure they would be effected. I dont know about all thats being dismissed so how about some answers. We got TABOR other States followed we got the pot other States followed this could start a National insurance that could replace the crap we had before and what Obama care is turning into.
