Re: “Fed up!

We don't have to re-elect her, happyfew. Jariah Walker is a great candidate.

Re: “Halter scolds Lamborn on vet issue

Attention all active duty and veterans: Lamborn is NOT YOUR FRIEND! Remember this at election time.

Repeat after me, "Doug Lamborn is NOT my Friend." Again. "Doug Lamborn is NOT my Friend."

Re: “GMOs, Mikey's salary, Iraq redux, and more

Hey Brien, I grew up in LA and I'll tell you, women on hispanic stations have always looked like that. I'll take the girls on telemundo or univision any day. They get it, it's just reading the teleprompter and look pretty reading what your corporate masters tell you, kinda like Obama. They leave politics out of news opposed to here where only leftists can get a job. That's why their anchors look like Sofia Vergara and ours look like Martha Raddatz, or Skeletor with a blonde wig, I get the two confused. Face it, nothing more homely than a leftist woman.

Re: “Halter scolds Lamborn on vet issue

Lamborn is NOT interested in active duty members and their families or veterans. If he cared he would not have voted to cut WIC or the SNAP programs which some of our active duty and veterans need. Why is he on the Veterans Affairs Committee? He doesn't know or understand the meaning of "taking care of our own" since he's never served our country.

Lamborn is only interested in his donors (i.e. Koch Bros.)who are NOT interested in the welfare of our active duty and veterans only their own selfish agendas.

Re: “The shadows know

25 millionaires trying to run things...the rich should run everything... screw the poor people. profits over environment, profits over morals, profits over education, just profit... everything else just gets in the way of a few rich people making more money. I have a feeling that asking for more money after rejecting recreational MJ is not going to go over so well. the rich newspaper owners will sure and try to make a go at it I am sure. good luck with that.

Re: “Here's Peggy

This is why I whole heartedly support Jariah Walker! He is a breath of fresh air and even though he doesn't hold this office yet he is at all the functions and actively supports small businesses like mine Her Story Café. We need him to represent our community!!!!

Re: “Is the C4C resolution a contract?

Ok, Mr. Burns, please discribe the jobs you're referring to. What revenues and where will they go? What do you consider Economic Development? Please answer carefully as you may get a rebuttal.

Mr. Murray is a thorough and meticulus thinker who does not take his task lightly in trying to protect the citizenry from mis-guided fantasies of others. This should be the last community to support corporate welfare. If this is a "power trip or personal vendetta" so be it! The citizens should welcome him.

Mr. K: It is private interests using the government to attain their goals with taxpayer money and NO or very little citizen involvement.

Re: “The shadows know

This is the third time this group has formed, each time producing little more than a new FaceBook page with each attempt. But at least they are trying.

Mr. Snider is perpetually confused at what is going on with council.

Re: “Halter scolds Lamborn on vet issue

Some public interest group ought to get up a list of the Veterans Affairs Committee hearings that Lamborn missed and check them against other committee meetings that he did attend, just to see exactly what he thought was more important than the vets.

Re: “Is the C4C resolution a contract?

Mr. Burns, it warms the cockles of my heart to see the blind, childish faith you have in the ability of the government to create economic prosperity by taxing and spending. Or, perhaps, you are only interested in prosperity for real estate developers, even if it breaks the backs of the citizens you pretend to speak for.

George Bernard Shaw once said the punishment for a liar is not that no one will ever believe him. It is that he cannot believe anyone else. Likewise, an untrustworthy person cannot bring himself to trust anyone else. So, when you accuse Mr. Murray of indulging in a "power trip or personal vendetta," I have to suspect that that is actually your usual modus operandi, Mr. Burns.

Re: “Is the C4C resolution a contract?

Ok Bill, you can re-live the same ole day, over and over again like you did in the movie "Groundhog Day." Meanwhile, we will move forward and advance our city with jobs, revenue and economic development. If you're so concerned with benefiting our citizens, why are you so focused on holding us back?? Seems like a power trip or personal vendetta to build your own empire rather than advance the citizens at-large!

Re: “An outsourcing suggestion, Weinstein's 'outrageous' salary, Gold Hill dreaming, more

Aaron Mendel's letter displayed a stunning, fundamental ignorance and astounded this one citizen--does anyone really want to climb the smokestack of a plant that processed cyanide and other profoundly toxic chemicals?

Re: “Grocer X: Fear and loathing in the checkout lane

No matter how much of the cashier's time a customer wastes with foolish questions, the cashier is being paid. The customer has to waste time waiting on long lines for the privilege of handing his money over to the grocer. How comforting to know while I am standing patiently in line the grocer is eying me trying to determine if I am a "gila monster" who might not understand their latest promotional gimmicks.

The grocer is supposed to be there to answer questions. That is an essential part of the job. Maybe some customers are not as quick as others to catch on and maybe some are annoying and irritating--that's why it's called "work!"

No beef? Our diet dictocrats prescribe vegetables and tofu. Problem solved.

Staff working King Soopers at Briargate and Union near the hospital are the best.

Re: “Grocer X: Fear and loathing in the checkout lane

Allow me to reiterate: The Customer Is NOT Always Right. My message to the customer would be this: The employee is not there for you to abuse and berate. You don't know as much as you think you know and you are not always right. Its about mutual respect. Thanks. :-)

Re: “Grocer X: Fear and loathing in the checkout lane

Its easy to bitch, isn't it? Anybody working in retail, of any form, will have bad days and horror stories. Yes, it is true that the customer is NOT always right. But, it is also true that we catch more flies with honey than with vinegar.
