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

And yes seldom any bikes every on Research and most of the ride on the side walks. I would never let my kids or grand-kids ride on Research unsafe. Blind spots in cars trying to cross this bikes lanes often cannot see the people in the lane in their blind spot. This is just flat causing MAYHEM on what used to be our main connection to shopping, hospitals, freeway. It is harming the businesses who are also complaining about it. Just so a few people can cause Mayhem on Research.

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

This is dangerous. Have had several near miss accidents now because of the mess on Research. In the bad weather it is horrifying up here now. Getting out of the neighborhood now can take up to 4 light changes. Getting to Memorial Hospital for Emergency treatment means I now get stuck in traffic This a major artery we all use to get to I25 and now that is a mess as is Powers. There was no though put into this plan it is horrible for all of us that bought homes and live here. We used and needed three lanes it it is idiotic to take one away when we already had traffic issues. These planners care nothing about those of us that live here and use this road daily.

Re: “Springs math teacher sues the state to vote his conscience as a member of the Electoral College

Matt 2, the point is that the population is generally not qualified or sane enough to elect qualified people. A popular vote would have made it possible for Hollywood to run this country. Michael Jackson would have been president. Would you want someone like vietnamized to have any say at all in anything? Absolutely not! He is a whack-job on the edge and there are a million more like him.
People are foretelling doom but we only need to recognize the propaganda that emanates from Washington DC, checks and balances take care of the rest. It is always good when one party shoots down the other party's legislation. Richard Nixon did untold damage with his war on drugs and the creation of the DEA and THAT was all propaganda. The people bought it hook line and sinker, Once something is law it is hard to undo. If they would stick to the Constitution they couldn't stick it to us.
Shut up in advance vietnamized, don't care about your opinion of me or anyone else,

Re: “PPACG employee claims she was fired because of her illness

What in the hell is Pikes Peak Area Council of Governments? And EEOC is at the service to employers. Human decency is uncommon among those who hire employees, they do as they please and if you don't like it then it sucks to be you.

Re: “UPDATE: Strawberry Fields controversy continues

Rick, have you seen Suthers' resume? Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Suthers
One has to wonder why did he demote himself to mayor? His promise of job creation and road repair have taken a backseat to a land deal which benefits nobody except a guy who has more than anyone else! 30 years ago "real estate developer" was akin to saying "child molester" Now they run the city. What job could Anschutz offer? Mayor? I still want to know where the street maintenance money went for the last 10 years and one would think a "law and order" former attorney general would jump on that question in an instant! But they keep jumping on Doug Bruce and now Maketa in what appears to be a misdirection such as a magician does to pull off his tricks...You cannot say "open space" and "development" as a goal and ignore 5000 miles of streets for 10 years but anything is possible in a city where citizens wish to pay for stuff twice. An attorney as mayor means the city is going to get hosed. Constant yammering about trails when we have no streets... my head hurts. At least we aren't Detroit. Yet.

Re: “UPDATE: Strawberry Fields controversy continues

Dear Mr Mayor, In case you haven't noticed this ENTIRE country is sick of the favors done for billionaires on the backs of the working people. You are acting like a WHORE for the Bully at the Broadmoor Anshutz....did he promise you a job in his company after you leave city hall ... tell us we'll understand. Anschutz did not make Colorado Springs the city it is, he did not even have a hand in the first CENTURY at the Broadmoor. He is a bully manipulating you like a piece of spaghetti. It's time for you to represent the PEOPLE OF COLORADO SPRINGS whom made this city great , instead of one unneedy billionaire screwing us for more money. Wake up Suthers, you're adding to an unbalanced Oligarchy !!

So.... they lobby for federal grant funds so the local teabaggers and neocons can claim low property taxes is the reason for any economic viability and ignore the giant tax payer jobs program of 5 military bases?

Re: “Save Cheyenne loses bid to block Strawberry Fields swap

mbomcar: And don't forget the wildlife. Their fate and ours are inextricably intertwined. If you want to lose the attention of Colorado Springs government officials, just start talking about the wildlife population in Strawberry Fields. They might just as well be on another planet.

No one ever said it was going to be easy.

Re: “Planned Parenthood, NARAL plan for the storm ahead

murderous religious freaks have been sticking their noses into women's crotches for decades. holier than thou attitudes leave them to believe they should have control over every woman's body because of their fairy tale book they like to cherry pick.

as for the p***y grabber president elect, we will wait and see what his take on this is this week... he does think he should have control of every woman's body... to grab.

Re: “Save Cheyenne loses bid to block Strawberry Fields swap

That's what you get when you vote in Republicans (financially backed by developers) and DEVELOPERS! The don't care about the land, natural resources, clean air, clean water, just big development and fracking; never mind the consequences.They don't care about YOU; just about lining their own pockets. Not unlike the new President-elect.

Re: “Trump's inexperience, Colorado's primary system, Centennial extension, and more

Mr Mabon, in reading your letter more carefully it should be required reading for every public servant in the country. Bravo - they work for us, not the other way around, tho sometimes it doesn't feel that way.

And in corporatist Trumpland we'll all be workin' for the man...again.

Mr Casimir, roads don't last that long. TABOR has lasted longer...and the longer it lasts the longer we'll be dodging potholes. It would be innovative if some of our great materials engineers could get that to work though...then maybe TABOR could work, too - NOT!

Re: “Trump's inexperience, Colorado's primary system, Centennial extension, and more

Tannim, let me get this straight - our current President, former Harvard Law Review editor, Constitutional Law professor who has a 57% approval rating and scares he crap out of Putin (as does NATO and the former Lady Secretary) is the fellow more than half the nation wants impeached? Math challenged, you are.

I would vote for Trump to be your operating surgeon any day - maybe he could correct your attitude with some fine hand gestures or something.

Mr Mabon, freedom from religion is every bit as important as freedom of religion. Tannim fails to acknowledge that the bible was written by men, and severely edited over the years. It stands on its own until some self-appointed direct line to the almighty wants to cherry pick and change interpretations.

Re: “Where are the Trump populists?

CSIndyReader, if you are inferring that a retired General had a job that required him to make money (as in business?) you are looney. The military spends our money! When he finishes with the DoD he'll wind up at Boeing or Lockheed/Martin or some other tax dollar sucking defense contractor - or maybe as a lobbyist for all of them!

Howdy again, Longtooth! Rick Perry won't be a problem - he'll abolish his job and go back to Texas! That's if he remembers what his job is...

Re: “Sorry Dems, biased media, the Electoral College, and more

Again, to correct my screw-up, the website is asktheelectors.org. Also, this claptrap about 'bound' electors is not going to fly very far when the unconstitutionality of it comes to the fore.

Makeitgreatonce: read Malcolm Nance's "The Plot to Hack America". Trump is interested in making Russia greater.

Re: “Clark bids adieu at business luncheon after 12 years

For 12 years in office, perhaps the greatest contribution made to the community by Mrs. Clark was to provide voters clear direction that county commissioners should not be allowed to serve more than two terms but - - in a clever maneuver allowing her to serve for three.
