Do you support city council's tentative decision to not place the parks funding measure on the April 2017 ballot? A one minute Quick Poll. Thank you for participating.

Squeaky wheels get the grease - the rest of you be damned.

Re: “Colorado Springs cancels buffered bike line experiment

I'm not sure my quote came out quite right, at least how I meant to say it.

I do care if people ride bikes, and I'd like citizens and visitors all around Colorado Springs to be able to safely, efficiently and for whatever reason they would like to, from their own garage to a place of value within their own community, or beyond. No matter their age or ability.

Do I want to force people onto bicycles, no.

I truly believe that if we build a community that allows transportation choices, people will be free to use whatever mode suits them best, brings them the most enjoyment, allows for variety and meets the needs of our city's modern needs.

Odin writes, "General rule of arguments: The first person accuse someone of fascism is almost always wrong and is almost always an ignorant dickhead."

Don't forget the same rule applies to socialism, as so many "ignorant dickheads" demonstrated when accusing Obama.

For the last eight years right-wing ideologues have been whining about Obama, and they have been whining about Clinton for 24 years. It did not take any of them long to figure out that whining losers are objects of derision, as they themselves have been for so many years.

Bob Nicoll asks, "Want an orange slice?"

Watch out! A Trump (Registered Trademark) orange slice could cost as much as $25, plus tip for service, and chances are the supplier was stiffed!

Re: “Lamborn votes to give away public lands; the homeless, CSU and more

Lil Mick, you haven't got a clue what fascism is or isn't, you just throw the term around to try to feel superior, just as you throw out your family's past service, which, by the way, pales in comparison to that of my family. Plus, unlike you, I served as well and did multiple tours in Iraq and Afghanistan, as well as serving in Bosnia and DESERT STORM.

General rule of arguments: The first person accuse someone of fascism is almost always wrong and is almost always an ignorant dickhead.

Re: “Lamborn votes to give away public lands; the homeless, CSU and more

I am 61 years old, my father and mother both enlisted in the Army to fight the spread of fascism in Europe, which would eventually have come to our shores.

I am speaking of WW II, my mother joined the Women's Army Corp, and my father was a 2nd lieutenant who fought on the front lines in France.

My father took a bullet from a German soldier, shattering his right arm and went through major surgery, grafting his thigh bone to repair the shattered bones in his arm.

He is a purple heart recipient and to me they are both heroes who fought to keep their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren free from fascism.

Odin and Bob Nicoll, you are both cowardly, ignorant, disgusting human beings and this country and world would be better off without either of you.

You fucking fascist bastards disgust me!

Re: “Colorado Springs cancels buffered bike line experiment

I too live in briargate, a couple blocks from research and literally drive the entire length of it to get to work and never once received any type of notification. I don't have an HOA in my neighborhood and there were no visible signs posted either. I absolutely support more biking routes in the city, but taking away traffic lanes isn't the way to do it. I lived in Fort Collins for several years and loved the bike route structure there, you can ride all the way through town without having to share the path with dangerous drivers! That is more of what we need in this town.
