Re: “The resurgence of the radical left raises questions

There is a simple, non-violent tactic that works well in such situations. Instead of dressing in black and trying to block the entrance, dress casually and show up early to get a seat in the auditorium. Wait patiently for the program to begin. When the fascist walks up to the podium and opens his mouth, we rise to our feet, hollering anti-fascist slogans at the top of our lungs, and walk out on him.

Re: “City needs, after the march, a crappy cover, and more

The Democratic Republic that this Country uses does work. We vote as a majority then the Electoral Collegiate voters take the results of that majority in that State and cast the vote that represents the majority of that State. Its that simple. It was set up that way by our founders to stay true to our Republic while giving the people a voice. Back in the day the Representatives that were sent to cast a vote did so as they wished not what the people sent them there to do. So a Democratic vote was set up. Some times majority does not rule as in this case. More folks in the pockets of the Country that had the most Electoral College votes cast Trump. It happened before when Bush got in. If we were a full Democracy then we the people would have to vote everything that came down the pipeline. Every law, every person, all funding, everything, no Representatives. Now think about that. National votes for everything. That would cause the places with the most people controlling everything. Thats why we have State Representatives. Sometimes the Electoral College puts a fella in that the Majority didnt want as in this case but thats what its designed to do. Sometimes the majority rules sometimes it dont.

Muslims are responsible for stormwater issues? I thought it was Democrats.

Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

In a world of alternative facts and where people living in Muslim countries are banned from immigrating to the United States by a non Muslim ban it is clear that politicians can say anything they want and we will buy it.

Re: “Air Force Academy loses men, women cadets at different rates

Thanks so much for the information provided! I must say that being a cadet in Air Force Academy is really hard and the educational process is very complicated. However, such an education is very interesting and it opens great career opportunities so I think that sending your child there is a smart decision. At the same time I would recommend Air Force Graduates to check and to learn more about their career perspectives. Good luck!

Re: “El Paso County inmates say new jail contractor serves inadequate food

They all suck! The sheriff should get someone to go undercover into the kitchen as a trustee and report what the hell is going on! I can guarantee you that it's not good! At $1.01 per meal you can't feed folks well enough especially with these large greedy corporate assholes. I could go and run that kitchen at $1.45 a meal and be over the 3,000 calories easily with good food not that dog chow they try to serve. Let's not forget that a well fed inmate is a happier inmate. I've talked about this for years but they need to get a large greenhouse on site raise chickens etc it can be very affordable and healthy. I've been in thst facility a few times and it's always been horrible. I could fix it in 2 weeks period

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Let me understand this, mr.b. You looked at my previous comments and predicted that I would act in the future as I had in the past! You should join the California Psychics!

As hard as you looked, you could not find anything to debunk in all that I posted, so you post this trivial anecdote in a desperate attempt to hide the fact.

Re: “Addressing poverty on the Springs' Southeast side

Excellent! Many so called leaders don't have the fortitude to point out the true problem, but not only did you do so. You offering the people one of many solutions. That deal directly with the problem. This is what one would call Overstanding. Great job Patience!

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Mr K.

Thank you so much! I noticed some of your comments on other posts and made a wager with a buddy that you were both a narcissist and the type of person that had been so influenced by current propaganda that you would react using exactly the tactics that you did.

Hook, line and sinker!

Looks like I'm drinking for free tonight.

Soma, by the way, is the mind control drug used in Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World".

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

mr.b blusters, "Do you even know what a Marxist is, or is that a term you heard 45 years ago and never bothered to research?"

You are hoping, mr.b, that a snarky reply will obscure the fact that you are dodging my question. Which might mean you do indeed consider yourself a Marxist, but are too embarrassed to admit it.

In response to your question, I have probably forgotten more about Marxism than you ever knew to begin with, but I still remember enough to make you look foolish.

mr.b suggests, "...take your soma (it will help with the paranoia)..."

Since we are playing armchair psychiatrist, I cannot help wondering that you display your screen name entirely in lower case. I hope that is not a sign of feelings of inferiority.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

I believe what mr.b is saying is that our current Fearless Leader is no worse than any of his predecessors. The last time I heard that argument, was just before Richard Milhous "Tricky Dick" Nixon resigned from office in disgrace.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

mr.b whines, "Good job cherry picking though. I list F.D.R, Carter, Bush and Obama as having similar policies, and you only see Bush."

Bush was the only one that needed to be clarified. Sorry if I hurt your poor, little feelings by making you explain your gibberish. At any rate, you clarified your position well enough. You were referring to both Republicans, as well as Democrats, because both parties answer to the same masters.

So, I was not cherry picking, but you built an ugly strawman, and then crowed about how easy it was to knock down. You wrote, "Stay angry and prejudiced against your fellow citizens,..." Thank you, Dr. Freud, but I am not angry against my fellow citizens. On the contrary, I am proud of the numbers turning out to chastise the new administration.

If you are referring to those fellow citizens who helped put the little baby in office, I am not angry at them. I am sorry for them. Many of them already have buyer's remorse. Many of them thought the apple of Putin's eye was exaggerating to make a point during the campaign and now are horrified that he meant every word literally.

If you are referring to the racists of the so-called "Alt Right," they do not consider me a fellow citizen and I return the sentiment.

As for prejudice, when you posted this reply I had only asked a few questions. You had, and still have, nothing on which to base such a charge against me. So, you have only thrown your own prejudice into the spotlight.

"You make an excellent sheep Mr.K." Thank you. You are not such a bad sheep yourself, but you are a terrible propagandist. Bah!

Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

Stormwater runoff is a development problem - thus developers should be paying for any problems that occur.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Mr k.

I never called Hillary a global terror threat. I stated that working with Russia to contain a global terror threat, has proven productive in the past.

WOW.... your ability to cherry pick and toss around clichs at the same time is both impressive and impotent. Quite the achievement.

Do you even know what a Marxist is, or is that a term you heard 45 years ago and never bothered to research?

Your response is a textbook example of - Ignoratio Elenchi

How long has it been since your lobotomy?

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Mr.b, I do not agree that Hillary Clinton was ever "a global terror threat" and Moscow's candidate has denied any connection with the Russians. President Roosevelt, on the other hand let everyone know what was going on every step of the way and proceeded only with popular approval.

Furthermore, so-called "American prejudice" when the war ended was in favor of the Soviet Union, not against it. It took a lot of hard work, including the infamous McCarthy Hearings, to turn popular sentiment around.

For a Marxist, you certainly are clueless when it comes to Soviet history.

LOL! Are you just finding out now? I stumbled on to that fact about 45 years ago, only the so-called "corporate sponsors" were known as the Ruling Class back then.

So, how long have you been a Marxist?
