Re: “Philip Anschutz's influence knows no bounds

He is hardly self made. If my daddy had been an oil and train magnate I probably could have accomplished some of this myself. To me he just feels like another 'trump' just one who doesn't like the spot light.

Re: “Salvaging our shared dignity after the land swap

How do we fund our parks? I have an idea- how about by allowing RMJ sales in town. The council can choose to dedicate those taxes where ever they see fit. Green for green sounds great to me! Instead we have tourists and locals using our roads to go to manitou or pueblo to get what they voted to make legal. Seems short sighted to me.

Re: “Physician-assisted suicide, the Super Bowl, the sit-lie ordinance, and more

Brandy, While you know how much I respect you we disagree on this. Since WA and OR enacted this bill has there been any abuses? And as for other 'activities' that prohibit investigation? How about oil and gas companies who are exempt from the clean water and clean air acts? How about the companies who dump poison into our waterways? The people being slowly poisoned by them don't even get a choice in the matter. Allowing someone who has a terminal illness to die with dignity after a waiting period, after talking to two different doctors and having witnesses should require no investigation unless there is an outcry from the family or care workers. Other wise the family and friends should be allowed to mourn in peace just like they would be allowed to if their loved one had died slowly and in terrible pain.

Re: “GOP debate shuts out CU students

I contend that they know they won't be able to sell much more than that anyway like LivesLocally states while they do know that Bernie Sanders could probably sell it mostly out. I know I'd be there.

Re: “Is he running? A definite maybe

Again, the voters already voted on a way to gather more taxes to fund infrastructure projects but Bach and his ilk on council are standing in the way! Allow RMJ shops and not only will we have tax dollars but jobs too!

Re: “City Council kills recreational-marijuana vote

What can I even say??? These guys are not listening to the voters and they are ignoring any facts. Val has been tip toeing around the feds despite a number of us (me as one of them) coming to see him and explaining that HE is the way we change/sway/redirect/move/ the fed at a local level. I'm so tired of them proving time and time again that our votes don't count. Do you know how many times I have told ppl to vote? that their vote counts, that it's important? and then the council rejects them. Great move guys. Proving you are on the side of the #gop.
