And yes, I borrowed terms and names from someone else. They fit, so wear them.

Re: “A Federated States of America?

Time to debunk the Hazy Hurts again...

The short of it is this:

Your criminal girl Hillary lost. Get over it and kwityergritchin', old man.

The long of it is this:

Yes, the con man won, and he immediately has moved left to embrace the policies that your criminal girl Hillary and your socialist pals in Failuresville just love, so kwitchyergritchin', old man.

That, and you really need to crack open a real history book and learn the difference between the federal form of government we as a nation started with and kept until 1860 and the national form of government that we've had ever since (and screwed up the nation mightily along the way, too).

But then again, Hazy, you're a bitter old man socialist, so I don't expect any of that to ever happen. You're simply not bright enough.

So you're left to whining and complaining and engaging in typical liberal stereotypes, devoid of susbstance and full of crap.

So do us all a favor: kwitchergritchin', old man.

Re: “Colorado Springs Forward, the Trump presidency, helmet laws, and more

"Pam Zubeck's article was an outstanding public service."

Absolutely agree!!
And to the extent that the lack of transparency shown by CSF is mirrored by the city administration, great caution from the citizens of Colorado Springs is called for on both fronts.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

Mr. Grabbee;
Did I hurt your feelings so badly that you have to make up more brainless name-calling and insults so typical of Trump and his minions?

"so you hate half of America"

Na, not so much "hate" as simple contempt.
Half? No, not even close to half. After all, Hillary got MORE Americans to vote for her than Trump did. So that's a bit encouraging, although it does not speak well for democracy.
I guess its too much to ask, here in 21st century America, that we have a President who has enough personal integrity to NOT be enthusiastically backed by Nazis.
Your post (unless its brilliant sarcasm) reflects a perfect example of the type of individual I see as having voted FOR Trump. Now I can add Nazi to the list of "virtues" I associate with Trump voters.

Hold on! Trump put on the right show to win. He is poopin his britches right now. As far as assawatcher... graduates of college never say, I went to HS then college, duh, but you didn't claim to graduate from either. It is a crime to impersonate a veteran. ...and you were never legally married. ..but that little Bastard did turn out to be a fine young man. ...so you hate half of America, but you despise the others and you were born down the street and now ur a perv...ok!

Re: “Water contamination, the election, bigotry, and more

Ahhhh, Tannim - the resident snarker and authority in chief. It's good to be home in Colorado again so I can again begin to get you to wipe the BS out of your eyes and see what a negative you are in any sensible conversation. All the letters and comments were spot on - especially the one where you commented that Democrats have had a long history of racism and bigotry - I agree, but most of us grew out of it, and Trump has brought it back to the fore. If this is who you are then you had better hope that someone opposed to your bigotry doesn't wipe up the floor of some bar with you. Mr. Armintor's issue with Trump U goes to the issue of character - Trump is not the non-politician he claims to be - he is a dyed in the wool political actor who will say anything to get the votes of each of the mini-groups he was able to drive wedge issues between. His staff's consulting with Putin's staff after the nomination, and his daughter's use of a photo op to sell her line of jewelry, coupled with the infomercial about the Trump Hotel in Washington being a gathering place for foreign diplomats and others seeking to curry Trump's favor are lining his pockets before he is even inaugurated give me great pause. The man has no character at all. To say that Hillary Clinton is in it for herself only and ignore the fact that Trump is exponentially more toxic in that area than she is to be blinded by ideology.

UCanSee, you obviously are drinking the Breitbart Kool-Aid, too. I read a lot, I have a high school friend who was Mayor of Little Rock, and I've probed for some speck of truth in this character assassination that has gone on for three decades but have found none. Oh, that Mayor of Little Rock was the only person to actually be convicted in the Whitewater/Lewinski fiasco and is not exactly on speaking terms with his former law office partner.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

Tannim, you need to remember that the Constitution is not just made up of the 2nd and 4th Amendments. In Article II, Section 1 we are given the tools to right this wrong and we should use them while we can. Article II, Section 1 charges the Electors with voting the will of the people (1,152,000+ and counting for Hillary over Trump), and to eliminate unfit candidates. This is also restated in The Federalist Papers #68 where it makes the Electoral College the gatekeeper against demagoguery. Trump is a vulgarian at best and not the kind of national figure we should present to the world. At worst he is a con artist, racist, xenophobic mysoginist and a narcissistic sociopath to boot. But that's not the worst of it - the people he has chosen to advise him are worse than he is.

Don't wait to impeach this nutcase for his multiple conflicts of interest...then we get Pence and a theocracy. The time to act is now. Before the Electors vote. On December 19th.

It's also obvious, Tannim, that your primary news source has to be Breitbart and Alt-Right. Breitbart and Co have been sliming Hillary Clinton since she became First Lady - it is extremely profitable for them to do that. Who are you going to hate if the Clintons are gone? I'd say "try me", but you already do that.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

Mr. Bremer,
Healthcare in the USA has failed in the "market-based" system, as evidenced by the staggering 14% of GDP we spend on healthcare--this is twice the amount spent by other developed nations. A study of healthcare economics is crucial, before opining on a subject . Give us your opinion , sure, but what are your opinions based on? Mine are based on university-level study of healthcare economics and 20 years of patient care and management.

Re: “Water contamination, the election, bigotry, and more

I got one question that maybe some of you can answer. If Clinton had really done all these horrible things why hasent she been convicted? Just saying innocent till proven guilty is still part of the American code. Is it not? Now before the " Right" jumps all over me for being "liberal" I didnt vote for Clinton or Trump I thought they both were the worst people in this Country to bring to the front. In my opinion Clinton had nothing to offer but what was in her baggage and Trumps ideas are ludicrous in this day and age. Draining the Swamp of Snakes and filling it with Alligators ant going to accomplish anything but more of the same that got us here.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

Although this piece may not be pleasing to half of the Indy's readership, I'd like to commend the editorial staff at the Indy for having the courage for presenting the alternative view. You cannot have a real discussion on issues by putting up a wall to shut out those who might disagree with you.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

Mr. Bremmer's fevered fantasy reveries notwithstanding.........
I grew up in Colorado Springs. I attended High School, College, and served in the Army. Ive been in countless locker rooms, lived in frat houses and Army barracks. My wife and I raised a son who is now a man. Ive known my share of right-wingers, left-wingers, and chauvinists, but in all my life I have NEVER encountered another man who's vileness, betrayed by nothing more than HIS OWN WORDS AND DEEDS, is anywhere close to Donald Trump's turpitude. A man who routinely demeans others, who's foul language and business dealings reflect a morally crippled mind, who dismisses the deep traditions of America as weakness or "political correctness", who threatens, bullies, and simply believes that his inherited wealth entitles him to freely lie, intimidate, insult, make wild accusations, defraud and actually assault others.
And I have NO reason to think any better of any man or woman who would knowingly cast a vote for such a degenerate. I grieve for our nation, apparently now inhabited by such hate-filled, fear-ridden, foul minded, or at best ignorant, individuals who believe that Trump's virtues in no way disqualified him from receiving their vote to be our beloved country's President.
If you voted for Trump, that's what I think of you.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

LMAO I'm sorry Tannim, but half of the nation are not the so-called 'deporables'. Half of Trump's followers are whom Hillary was referring to. Half the people who actually voted for him is roughly 30 million, or 10 percent of the nation. Hate Hillary if you like, but get your facts straight.
