Re: “A flood of opinions on flooding

"However, CSF likely will roll out details of its goals and membership within the next week or two and could play a major role in the campaign, whether it backs or opposes the measure."

Of what value is yet another 'power group' that will not take a stand on anything?

Re: “Unemployment, Ferguson, Woody Allen, and the Springs jazz scene

Cyrus Campbell! I agree with you 100%. I do not believe there was ever a time we had 100% employment in this country. If a business wishes to leave a bowl for change that OTHERS donate to or OTHERS may take from then that is fine. Snide messages do not belong on that bowl and was undoubtedly placed there by the business.
As for their advice, I believe then I will get a job. I will take over the manager's position at The Perk. (Would he be The Jerk at the Perk?) The Perk can reach me through this forum. I have never been to The Perk and have no idea what The Perk does but I know how to treat people plus have management skills and training going back to 1975.

Re: “Robin Williams, Hickenlooper and fracking, sisters' gratitude, and more

New York Lawyers have a saying: "If you have the facts, argue the facts; if you don't have the facts, argue the merits; and if you don't have the facts or the merits, argue like hell!" Mr. Publish, you are arguing like hell.

In refusing to attend the State of the Union address, Lamborn signaled to the entire world, including our mortal enemies, that we are not united as a nation, deep divisions exist that they might be able to exploit. This betrayal is what you applaud as Lamborn's courage.

Re: “Unemployment, Ferguson, Woody Allen, and the Springs jazz scene

Finally, Dave, the community response was to exercise their constitutional rights of assembly and free speech to draw attention to their situation. The police response to the lawful and peaceful demonstrations amounted to a riot against the community, and against the media, who dared exercise their constitutional right to cover the story. When police attack demonstrators, instead of defending their right to demonstrate, they create an environment that fosters violence. Once the state police stepped in the violence subsided dramatically.

Re: “Unemployment, Ferguson, Woody Allen, and the Springs jazz scene

Unfortunately, Dave, young Black males are targeted by racist profiling, and whatever the statistics you are citing here, they are compiled from the records of the "justice" system that victimized them in the first place.

It is a self-justifying policy: we assume young Black males are more prone to be criminals, so we target them for arrest; arrest records then show more young Black males in prison, proving they are more prone to be criminals.

Furthermore, the "educational, economical, ethical, familial, and social circumstances" you deplore are not the causes, but the end results of the same problem: social injustice based on race.

Re: “See him run

I'm not politically correct," he said later. "I really think it is a destructive force in our country and it keeps people from talking." No, maybe we the people are thinking for ourselves and going against the BS rhetoric of your interpretation of the Bible!

I think it is his kind of thinking that is the destructive force in our country! I don't know why you would ever think that he would unite our country Kathy, when he states "gay-marriage proponents in a list that included supporters of bestiality and pedophilia." If you don't believe in Marriage Equality, then don't marry someone of the same sex, but to deny other American's their right to marry is so wrong and I hope Americans cab see his bigotry for what it is! Anyone can claim its their religious right, so practice what you preach and let others live their lives as they choose!

Re: “Unemployment, Ferguson, Woody Allen, and the Springs jazz scene

Dave, your first two points are both beside the point. Regardless of whether or not the officer who killed Michael Brown is charged or not, regardless of whether he is convicted or not, this case has already exposed the lingering social injustice in America.

Of the eight British soldiers who were charged with murder after the Boston Massacre, six were acquitted and two were convicted of the lesser charge of manslaughter. Nevertheless, the Boston Massacre still stands for all time as an emblem of social injustice.

Re: “New biz group rides to Springs' rescue

"....a newly created non-profit group is launching an effort to "bring the community together to help address the problems and the opportunities that lie ahead."

How very naive. The "community" doesn't give a shit if the city crumbles.

Nothing will change or improve until all TABORs are done away with.

Re: “A different core curriculum

You know they say 'a sound mind in a sound body.' I like these alternatives! I think Memorial Skate Park and Fit Body can help students stay active, positive and motivated to gain new knowledge every day. When you are at college you have to do lots of college assignments and sometimes it's really hard, for example, to write a dissertation. As a rule a dissertation reports the results of a huge, important, life-altering study. http://dissertationwritinglab.com/ is the service that was designed to help students at all phases of thesis writing process. You can learn how to make a paper well-researched, well-structured and well-written for you to get a desired degree.

Re: “Lance Armstrong is yelling at the Gazette

...but Lance and Indurain did more to popularize the Tour than any, ever. Lance was the best that ever rode. The sponsors, the Tour, the fans and the media got everything they ever wanted during Lance's record seven Tour wins. The purists were finally able to nail him - it took so long because he was out on the foreskin of sports chemistry technology and they couldn't catch him.

Developers are the reason this city is in the shape it is. Give me a non-profit headed by young entrepreneurs and then you'd have something.
