Re: “Centennial extension, the state constitution, 'welfare queens,' and more

There is no debate on The 2nd Amendment, it stands as is. Gun control advocates have not been able to disguise their true goal and only fools would consider giving over their Right to defend themselves. Nobody protects you but you.
As the spokesman for every firearm owner I have been appointed to make this offer: We will sell our firearms, all of them, for fair market value to the US government provided that all law enforcement agents do the same. No more weapons at all. The only firearms that will be found would be illegal. At that same time all 911 calls will produce the proper authority within 1 minute, failure to respond within 1 minute will result in "fines" paid to the citizen of $10,000.00, cash, period, pay up.
Anyone who thinks or states that police NEED weapons and cannot possibly respond within 1 minute to 911 call has answered their own idiotic notions of gun control and the absurdities they spew about something they know absolutely nothing about. Being ignorant is not a positive when you are attempting to revoke Rights of others. The best a gun control advocate can do is stay home, keep their mouth shut, mind their own business, stop being bigoted and stop being racist. As I said, there is no debate and no argument, if you want to stop violence then go out in the streets and stop it. Good luck.

By the way- there is no "epidemic" of shootings. There is no "gun culture", if there was a "gun culture" then when someone opened fire in a public place the return gunfire would be immediate.
The odds of being shot are minuscule and almost non-existent so why do some keep up their tiring BS? Money, control, power? Mostly, yes. For others it is just fear and ignorance. Stop flinging it around. Just because you have the Right does mean you have indulge it

And commenter "happyfew" trying to insult others only reveals their own lack of education and is the winner of "Moron of the Week". Try not to let your children see how lame you really are or they just might kill you in your sleep.

Re: “Centennial extension, the state constitution, 'welfare queens,' and more

Old, wrinkled, subservient hags can only weep into their Ensure because they know they're a dying breed--literally!--and that the measures and legislation they'd support to tell others what to do will never get passed.

You'll always be easily-led, frequently-manipulated, and outclassed by all you choose to engage with here; my condolences in advance for your future embarrassments, but I look forward to contributing to them!

Have a good night; may the nurses be prompt in changing you and turn you often so you don't get bedsores and I hope the lobotomy scar is healing nicely!

Re: “Don't believe every No. 1 ranking for Colorado Springs

Ralph is right about these "best places" lists, they are based on iffy criteria and usually with no real research to support them. Those looking for a best place are better off going to Sperling's Best Places, look at multiple criteria that have valid meaning to the user and select a city according to their own needs and wants.

Re: “Fireworks displays don't come together in a day

Millions of individual Americans have been celebrating our freedom by lighting off fireworks on the 4th for much of our nation's history. Today, that right is being trampled by government officials bent on ever-more control. Even here in Colorado it's now illegal to light off sky rockets, roman candles, fire crackers (I love Black Cat fire crackers), and a myriad of other fireworks. It disgusts me that government can so easily crush our freedoms,and that more Americans aren't incensed by the constant erosion of our rights.

Re: “Centennial extension, the state constitution, 'welfare queens,' and more

Gotta love the self-absorption and faux-indignation of a geriatric, drug-addled, entitlement-dependent, nursery-school deadbeat transient that thinks she knows better than others how to conduct their lives.

This trogolodyte actually thinks that gun regs which have never worked are a magical panaces that will cure violence, but the regressives she relies upon to pay her bills and provide her thoughts and opinions on this are inept to the point of staging catered sit-ins, complete with bathroom breaks.

(I'd embellish all this, but it's perfect as it stands!)

The country is changing, and the mindless, no-info rabble sucking on the gov't teat are fizzling-out; or is Bernie gonna be the regressives nominee? LOL!

Go back under the bridge and slam some MD 20/20--we won't ask what you had to do to "earn" the bottles--then take a dip in the creek--soak your "naughty bits"--and find a nice corner to patrol for pennies.

And by all means, shoot your mouth; it'll release some of the vaccum from between your ears and give us something more to laugh at...

Re: “Centennial extension, the state constitution, 'welfare queens,' and more

gotta love the certainty of the nra loving, drunken, redneck, pick-em-up truck driving, high school drop out, gun nuts about gun regulations. these nimrods truly think that the clueless teabaggers running the show now will be around in 6 months. the country is changing and the redneck and religious freak period is over. the rational thinking intelligent people will take over now. now go back to your double wide and drink a 40 oz. and get mad that you don't have a good job. shoot your guns... maybe it will help you feel better about yourself.

Re: “Springs Utilities board votes for status quo

Don't be fooled by Colorado Springs Forward. It is not a civic group. It is a Dark Money organization that works for the benefit of local developers. This group will do everything it can to get control of our Utilities.

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

As the pub media landscape changes and is increasingly threatened by online / on demand content, unique locally produced material is what will keep stations viable. Many of the most successful affiliates (critically and financially) have been leaders in this way.

As to the commentary re: value of WWWH with a $10,000 budget... That's tiny! Expect a show like this American life to be well into the six figures. In my opinion it WWWH show (or similar creative local content) deserves more. If we don't support folks with 'New York kind of money' just be ready to be listening and watching and reading content produced in New York and LA.

News like this makes it hard to justify my regular support of local media.

Re: “Glenn, Lamborn dominate GOP primary results

Ya know, with the Tea Party endorsing the GOP runner TRUMP, I don't know how anyone can say they have creditability anymore. Dobson claims "he is a newly born again" and will need their panel of conservative Christians to guide him, but TRUMP is going to be like a WILD BOAR in the White House- untamed, uncivilized and self-serving when it comes to what is best for our country. Can't wait for this election go down in November- LMAO!!!

Re: “Centennial extension, the state constitution, 'welfare queens,' and more

Mr. Odin....

First, my apology to Odin, I read his post and thought it was Liberty, I gave Kudos to Liberty by mistake...it was Odin that posted a response to me without a single insult to me.

Lets have an awesome dialog, you and I Odin, I would love that. Let's start with the first point I made with your response.

My Point:
"You folks seem to continue to push this false message that gun safety legislation is going to take your guns away," - Lil Mick

Odin's Response:
Not all of them all at once. But countless legislators and politicians have espoused doing basically that by adopting restrictions like those in the UK and Australia, where owning even a shotgun is very difficult and everything else much more so, and where massive "mandatory buy backs" and turn-ins were held -- AKA confiscations and bans. You can claim that no one wants to do this until you are blue in the face, but you are only fooling yourself.

My Response:
There is nothing factual to this response, this is an opinion.

Question:
"Countless legislatures and politicians"
...ok, if they are countless, there must be a lot and they must be easy to name, can you give me a few who has espoused in taking all guns away from the civilian population?

...It's your opinion, which I will respect, but it is without any factual basis. Can't debate a factless opinion, I think you all do this and that is when the dialog goes to the crapper.

...I will stand strong on this as a fact, no one, no politician, no legislature is trying to take hunting rifles. If anyone did, I, as a progressive would oppose such legislation. I live in Vermont and hunting is very..very big here, I would stand side by side with you Odin and Liberty in opposing such legislation. That's a promise.

...So, Odin, if you can't tell me which of the countless legislatures want to take all guns away including hunting rifles, then my point stands.

...Saying this "You can claim that no one wants to do this until you are blue in the face, but you are only fooling yourself." Is worthless without facts to back it up.

Opinions need to always be backed up by facts in a dialog, or it is nothing more than an opinion and you cannot debate opinions, you can only debate the facts.

I still stand, no one is espousing that we take your guns away.

Right now, it is just background check loopholes, Assault style semi automatic long guns maybe, but not hunting rifles.

Your response is simply non factual...not true...and we need to stop this false narrative and really debate the facts.

Thank you Odin, for your willingness to talk to me as friends who simply have a different point of view.

Was this response both adult and respectful to you Odin?

Re: “Wish We Were Here killed as KRCC adapts to survive

So you drive around with a microphone and mix it down with "Audition", Jake's fave, ... How's that ten grand? This should be a wake up call to kids that want to tell a story for five hundred bux! Every KRCC listener has preferences. I turn off Keillor. Dance revo has no taste and is from elsewhere. Youth is right, give it back to the kids! These board members and directors are just local socialites that are so "artsy"(puke!) KEPC seems more real(if they had the BBC...OH MY ...HEAVENLY!)
Noel just droned anyway...sounded too indistinguishable from Jake, now there's a kid with some sense! Don't let the big city kill ya, Noel...oh yeah, that's why you came crawling back.

Re: “UPDATE; City threatened with free speech lawsuit for Jesus ban

Well, let someone put up that God does not exist bench and see how fast that causes an uproar.

Re: “Listen to the Jesus bench complaint

First, I am atheist. I find this "Jesus" message less offensive than McDonalds or Coors appearing on a public ad. they too try to drive us to a specific product, and face it, religion is a product. If it helps defray the cost of the bus system, let it stand. Besides, The name Jesus is common among Hispanics, maybe one of them got promoted, good for him.

Re: “Strawberry Fields in Cheyenne Cañon is on the table for a swap with The Broadmoor

My mother had been diagnosed of Hepatitis B disease 3 years ago. She had been using the interferon therapy (Peg-interferon + Ribavirin) which adversely affected her hemoglobin level as she is also thalassemic (a side effect of using the interferon therapy). Luckily after stopping the treatment.

I read a book by HEALTH MED LAB about natural cures and he recommends these two things as a natural cure for HEPATITIS disease,Hydrogen Peroxide Therapy and Crocodile Protein Peptide. You can Google both of these to get more info. Also, need to do the cleanses,colon, liver, kidney, galbladder. Eat organic foods to get the toxins out of your body so your body can overcome the disease itself.This is important. I am not promoting his book, but I feel it is a must read if you want information on how to beat this awful disease. My mother is now HEPATITIS Negative with his help, Anyway, his email : ( healthmedlab401@gmail.com ) God bless and good luck!

Re: “Strawberry Fields in Cheyenne Cañon is on the table for a swap with The Broadmoor

I was diagnosed of hepatitis B in 2011 and I have tried all possible means to get cure but all to no avail, until i saw a post in a health form about a herbal doctor from South Africa who prepare herbal medicine to cure all kind of diseases including pancreatitis, at first i doubted if it was real but decided to give it a try, when i contact this herbal doctor via his email, he prepared an herbal medicine and sent it to me via courier service, when i received this herbal medicine, he gave me step by instructions on how to apply it, when i applied it as instructed, i was cured of this deadly disease within 6 days, I am now free from the deadly disease, my digestive system is now working perfectly, i no longer feel all the horrible pains. Contact this great herbal doctor via his email: healthmedlab401@gmail.com

Re: “Don't believe every No. 1 ranking for Colorado Springs

I agree with your observation that COS is not #1 in the tiny home movement. It is not. In fact, there is no legal place within COS that one can place a tiny home. Most tiny homes are actually RVs and not permanent homes. That means you can stay on a property for 30 days only and then you must move it. Or stay in a RV park. Not much of an affordable housing solution. Just another RV that looks like a tiny home.

If you want to talk about bringing affordable housing to COS (and not $1,200 per month rents in downtown high rise bldgs.) then start with the basics why there is no infill affordable housing in downtown, Hillside and Westside. Planning fees, utility tap fees, building permit fees, planning restrictions, etc. is a good starting point. But then again, small developers that can produce infill affordable housing have no clout with city leaders or planners. Ask why a tap fee for a 800 SF house in the Hillside neighborhood costs as much as the tap fees for a 5,000 SF house in the Broadmoor area of the city. Makes no sense.
