Re: “At Springs rally, proud 'deplorables' confident in their losing candidate's prospects

goobers that can only spout discredited and debunked BS. sorry, trump gave them the courage to come out from beneath their rocks due to his racism, xenophobic, homophobic tendencies, and lack of respect for women. they need to crawl back to where they came from, they are not wanted in decent society of the 2000's. we will never go back to "those days".

Re: “$2.5 million in health grants awarded

Every year medical grants are disbursed by the government to the states, counties, local government, and nonprofits for free medical checks, improved healthcare and funding for the disadvantaged families. Let’s have a look at this year’s new medical grants

Re: “Glenn pumps iron in campaign ad

And what have you actually done for us lately, Glenn?

Your opponent has done much to cross party lines and to actually get needed bills past to help Colorado farmers and such, but your GOP fellows in Congress are the ones not to do anything, so your ad is basically blasting your own party, dude. LMAO!!!

Re: “UPDATE: ATTN: Cyclists. Tell the city you want these bike lanes.

If drivers and cyclists alike would obey the traffic laws, this discussion would be unnecessary. Whether it's motorists who speed and tailgate, or try to turn while talking on the phone, or cyclists who are all over the road, the real problem is people who think the rules do not apply to them. Research Parkway is one of many examples -- try driving W. Woodman Road at rush hour between these two competing forces. You arrive relieved to be alive.

Re: “UPDATE: ATTN: Cyclists. Tell the city you want these bike lanes.

Colorado is a bike friendly state where we have minimum clearance laws and miles of dedicated bike trails. 6 lanes on Research serves the interests of cyclists and cars alike. The speeding issue will be solved if our city saw fit to time traffic lights to reduce the number of stops (while increasing fuel effeincicy). Give us back our 6 lanes... refocus on street repairs and launch an effort to get I-25 up to 6 lanes between Colorado's two largest cities.

Re: “UPDATE: ATTN: Cyclists. Tell the city you want these bike lanes.

The above picture does not reflect Research Pkwy. If creating traffic/congestion is progress, we are in a deep hole. I drive Research at least four times a day and since these new lanes, I have counted more accidents than bicycles. Creating these lanes is not progress. We need to face our reality, we are growing and we need more lanes to move cars, not the other way around.

Re: “Fire breaks out near Rampart Reservoir

Hmm. Never hear anything about the cause of Waldo or Black Forest, do we. Someone said Waldo was a Fed pot burn. Someone said.😏

Re: “UPDATE: Peterson AFB announces week-old pollution discharge

"This did not impact the drinking water, the finished water system, in any way. It went directly into the wastewater system." What BS. Where it won't even be tested for and certainly not treated for because they have no treatment, as they admit: "I don’t know of any wastewater plants in the country equipped to remove PFCs,” utilities spokesman Steve Berry said. “We would not have been able to remove that chemical before it was discharged back into the environment from our effluent.” In other words, it's already flushed into Fountain Creek.

The same thing that makes this stuff the go-to surfactant in industry is what makes it so caustic: the Fluorine-Carbon bond is the second strongest single bond in organic chemistry.
The more Fluorines you add, the stronger the bond and there are 2 Fluorines attached to each of the 8 Carbons in PFOAs, for example. That's why they call is "C8" for short. There are no enzymes in the human body that can take it apart and it will take forever, sitting in water and soil, to disassociate.

150,000 gallons would have to flow all the way to Oklahoma before it was diluted enough to reach the absurd 70ppt EPA regs, which is their new regulation.
70ppt is still absurd but reveals something about their regs before January, of 400ppt. They admitted they were THAT wrong then.
They will be admitting they are wrong again.

It replaces Calcium and Magnesium in the body and does damage they haven't even researched yet, but they know enough to know it can not be allowed.
It increases density but decreases strength in the bones and makes them brittle: "Skeletal Fluorosis" and the secondary effect: Osteoporosis.
Then it causes the calcification of scar tissues, ligaments, arteries and the epidemic beta Amyloid plaques in the brain: Alheimer's and related senility and dementia.

What it does to the Calcium Channels in the body is the stuff of horror movies. Cardiac rhythms, sodium retention, chronic kidney disease, adrenal dysfunction, so regulation of hormones and neurotransmitters, dysfunctions in the brain and peripheral nerves, mitochondrial toxicity, so the energy for every cell in the body, liver, pancreatic, testicular, and mammary gland tumors, etc. and it is estimated to take 8 years to wash out HALF of it in the body.

Re: “UPDATE: Peterson AFB announces week-old pollution discharge

aren't there EPA laws that regulate the discharge to sewers? why isn't the utilities pointing out these violations? have EPA regulations become non-enforceable in teabagggertown??

come on utilities... fine these polluters like you would any business that did the same thing. or are military installations able to pollute at will with no repercussions... so sorry for you residents of Security Colorado.

A lot of people camp off that spur road. Wouldn't be surprised if it was an abandoned campfire. :(

Re: “UPDATE: Road sign disparages Clinton

Such a sick immature thing to do. It frightens me the lengths Trump's supporters will go to and might go to if Clinton is elected. Trump has fomented nothing but fear and hate, and I am extremely concerned that it will spill over (as it already did) into mainstream society.

Re: “Grand Canyon Prep Part III; new trails in Staunton State Park

Enjoy the Grand Canyon Bob! I lived there for a year before moving to Colorado Springs, and that route was my preferred as well. There's going to be a point on the S. Kaibab where you finally see the Colorado River. I highly recommend taking a break there and just listening to the roar. Also, if they still serve it (I left in '03,) the cornbread at Bright Angel is incredible! Perfect after a hike down.
The hike up always felt like an uneven stair-master to me. Take a step, stair. Take 3 steps, stair. Take two steps, stair. It's tough to find a rhythm, so take your time and just enjoy it. The El Tovar porch is a great place to enjoy an adult beverage after you're done.
Lastly, if you're spending some time up on the rim, Shoshone Point is a good place for a sunrise or sunset. It's off the beaten path a bit so you may have it all to yourself and it's only a short hike from the parking area on fairly flat terrain.

Suthers , as usual, doing what his developer pimps tell him to do. Completely useless as a representative for the citizens of Colorado Springs.

Re: “UPDATE: ATTN: Cyclists. Tell the city you want these bike lanes.

These bike lanes are creating consistent chaos on Research. It's now impossible to make left turns at any of the intersections without lights. People are honking and having near-miss accidents regularly. I've witnessed an accident as well. It's been a total mess. And the next bike I see using the lane will be the first. Utter foolishness.
