America the corporation, not so beautiful... and we have developers running the city now, greaaaaat!
Let me guess little Rodnie, I bet you voted for little Richie Skorman.
Ranger Dick: I know, as the fair-minded (cough) person that you are, you will join me in condemning the IRS for the criminal practice of discriminating against one group in favor of another.
You do realize there will be a conservative senate and president again (very likely in 2014 and 2016 respectively). Isn't it likely that liberals would like to be treated fairly when the shoe is on the other foot?
If ya can't beat 'em, buy 'em off, right Stevie?
I didn't like this film nearly as much as the first. It was formulated to provide continuous action and any of the character interaction that makes ST special was just incidental during heavy action where it garnered no laughs at all from the early-bird viewers I was with. "Star Trek Into Darkness" was designed to appeal to a mass audience, the lowest common denominator. From my perspective, that was a huge mistake for the future of Star Trek, but not for Abrams wallet.
I really enjoyed the first film because it did a great job at being a classic Star Trek reboot, bringing back the characters, their quirks, and their interrelationships which was a significant and important part of the original series.
This is a Star Trek that apparently needs explosions every ten minutes to keep the audience interested, most of whom are not Trekkers. Hot blonds and Kirk having threesomes and endless "booms, bangs, and pows!" is the equation for getting teen males in the seats and having the ridiculous love story between "NuSpock" and "NuUhura" gets the teen girls in the seats. Having Kirk act like a whiny emo kid keeps all of them in the seats because now they can identify with him. "Parents suck! LOL!"
This is a predictable formula action film with predictable formula dialog utilizing characters and even plot lines that someone else created mixed in with some great special effects. This is 180 degrees from what Roddenberry created: daring ideas, imaginative concepts and innovative characters and dialog with lackluster special effects, the best that they could do. CGI has allowed bubblegum where once intelligent plots were required.
The Broadmoor has been applying massive amounts of grease for the last six months to make sure its plan to screw the neighbors goes thru without a hitch. Why do you think Anschutz' minions spent a small fortune to elect Keith King to Council? Citizens ought to ask little Stevie Bach why he doesn't have an opinion and yet thinks that "This is going to be a very thorough process?" What a weasel.
"As with tobacco in the mid-20th century, it may take a while for one side to "win" in the arena of public opinion."
But by then, the deed will have been done and we might find that they've permanently contaminated ground water over huge areas. When there's this much money involved, I trust no one, especially not the oil and natural gas industry.
Here's an idea Jimmy. Why don't you and your bleeding heart adopt all the homeless in the Springs. You don't need to take them in, but simply follow behind them and pick up all the trash they heedlessly toss around. Or, better yet, pick up all the feces deposited daily along the trail system. Or are you just talk?
It's great to see considerable space and time devoted to such an important issue. I expect we may fill the 1150 seats at Thursday's free screening at UCCS!
Yo! Bach! Grow a set. If you were really concerned, have the entire city stop selling them. Count the tax revenue you will no longer have, and deduct it from your salary. As it has NEVER been about peoples health of any kind. It is about the God Almight Dollar, as you well know. So stop play games. Ca Ca or get off the Pot.
See, if stupid was painful, this guy would be dead. They cannot manage money to begin with. There is NO parking there, nor will there be. The interstate is like right there. Oh what joy to be at a complete stop on an interstate ramp. This is part of the boys club wanna be's. What this article does not cover is the kick back he will be getting.
For Yahweh's sake, Bach, smoke a bowl already and chill.
She still is just not on the payroll.
Dear Mayor Steve Bach,
Here is another opportunity for you to step up. You can heal a lot of public discontent by admitting mistakes that representatives of the City have made. I urge you to be a leader of all residents.
i'm sure the homeland security will help bolster the defenses against the populace if requested. the guise of looking for fires is a good idea.
the loopy one. "after all we're only human, anyone can make a mistake". comments by the loopy one about the fire his arson squad started that ended the lives of two elderly persons. resulting in no jail time or job loss. the drinking of "fracking fluid" to prove it's harmlessness. after the drinking of his own beer, how could anyone tell? when one sits back and looks at the "accomplishments" of the loopy one, one can only hope and pray someone steps up and replaces this fool.
Dang K, you are not so obtuse after all.
What ever happened to that other gal who was working under Steve Cox?
