I admire those groups working for GLBT, also those online services like the one BiLoves. Many of my friends there have spent their careers working for equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) persons. I think they are really very great.

Re: “10 Republicans who've kept us in business

First of all Eric is an NRA member.I asked him myself.Also I know a few Teachers and they are making good money.Some teachers are not in it just for the money they want to brain wash our children on many issues including the Second Amendment.

Re: “10 Republicans who've kept us in business

LMAO @ Bill. Yeah, great thought process on why Eric Christen has to be an NRA member. And yes, you found us all out: we teachers do this job simply for the extravagent salaries we make as teachers. And for the exorbitant pensions we'll get on retirement. The only issue I have is that, given the huge sum I make in salary, I doubt I can afford to retire until the year 2099. But, after that, I am living the life of luxury! And I just caught on to the Indy's archive system just now. Why in God's name are we even discussing an article from 2003 ???? At least it explains why Dougie Buice and Eric Christen were omitted. Bye, Bill.

Re: “10 Republicans who've kept us in business

Liberal Teacher would not like Eric because he would hold teachers accountable for teaching our children.Teacher is probably one of the union members that are just there for the money and retirement benefits.

Teacher,Ecic Christen as I recall is a member of the NRA and in my book that makes him a true American.

Re: “10 Republicans who've kept us in business

OK, two questions: 1. You must have classified Dougie Bruce in a league of his own, since you didn't mention him. 2. Eric Christen deserves at least a dishonorable mention. Granted, his stay was (mercifully) short and he was elected to a suppposedly nonpartisan position on the D11 school board, but he was GOP through and through.

Hey Katy Dean, you say that: "This writer obviously has no idea the real story of what happened that night with my dad and his girlfriend." Why don't you give us the real story so we'll know the truth. I'd really like to know what happened that night.

Re: “10 Republicans who've kept us in business

I don't know why all you righties complain that the Independent calls itself the Independent. It's the equivalent of Fox News calling itself "Fair and Balanced" or Rush Limbaugh claiming to tell the truth (what a laugh). The lefties need something to read. I'm of course neither a right or left winger. But I do love how y'all dig up the dirt on one another. It makes for great laughs.

Gm93, if you want to bolster your claim that we are all trolls you might want to use less trollish behavior yourself.

Re: “10 Republicans who've kept us in business

Bla bla bla, listen, you all sound like a bunch of hard core forum trolls except not on video games or the latest and greatest computer system, instead, you're arguing over politics. I am fifteen and I can see this is a pointless and heated debate. Plus, the gazette is biased too, to the republican agenda or what ever you call it. Who cares, both parties have their strengths, democrats are idiots strait up most the time, and the old fashioned republicans would have my favor (The ones from 60' and before) but the republican party has been taken over by a bunch of ultra radical right wing religious fanatics who can barely run a country, highly trained monkeys. Just relax, and stop being trolls. You all squabble worse than a room full of four year olds.

Re: “10 Republicans who've kept us in business

ThunderCnt claimed, "The Independent allows those of us who are tired of being "polluted" with Republican agenda and views to get a tast of the other side." The Indy is more like a fire hose of liberalism sprayed into your face. But then you are obviously a partisan hack so those who agree with you are seen as fair and balanced while those who disagree with you are seen as extremists. ThunderCnt then exclaimed, "Those views which go against the Republican party are ... seen as 'slander'" To quote J. Jonah Jameson, "Slander is spoken. In print, it's libel." But then you're a lefty. Details and accuracy aren't all that important for you folks. ThunderCnt then boldly claimed, "We are all free-thinkers" No, "we" are all not. Most people are incapable of voting outside of party lines. Most people, yourself obviously included, are so horribly biased that they see only those who agree with their own views as being "moderate" while those who disagree are fringe loonies.

Re: “10 Republicans who've kept us in business

I for one being a native of Colorado Springs, born and raised am thankful that we can have a paper like the Independent. I will not argue that fact that they are biased on some issues, as no one else can argue the fact that the Gazette is not biased towards Republican views. The Independent allows those of us who are tired of being "polluted" with Republican agenda and views to get a tast of the other side. Those views which go against the Republican party are often buried or seen as "slander" here in the city of Colorado Springs, me as a young Democrat say NO MORE! Here is the great things about media outlets. We are all free-thinkers; Republican,Libertarian,Democrat, we all think for ourselves. So I challenge all of you to do what I do: Read and partake in all media outlets. Then make a decision based on what YOU think, don't go with blind allegiance to what you THINK a higher being or a party tell you. I often find myself challenging my own views and political stance because of this. Taking two exteremes and deciding for MYSELF! When this happens we truly have the chance to say indeed we are Americans and can think for ourselves. Stop blaming media outlets for their political stance, and appreciate them for reporting the news: biased or not, and the freedome to deduct what you feel is right from them! Come on everyone, be freethinkers, this is my challenge to all of you in the Colorado Springs area!

Re: “10 Republicans who've kept us in business

tonythefisher, you end your rant with "I, personally, am SICK of divisionary, revenge style politics!" That might be true but, like professional wrestling, it sure is selling to someone. Politicians and their supporters are creatures of the dominant media. If the voting public really didn't like mud throwing backstabbing nasty politics like the Indy uses then the parties and their minions would stop using them. The regrettable truth is Americans really are so petty and low that not only do they like "revenge style politics" but professional wrestling as well.

Re: “10 Republicans who've kept us in business

Political tricks and corruption, weather by Democrats or Republicans, is repugnant. Cara Degette's obvious biasness though in pointing out ONLY Republican deeds, is status quo for her articles writen for the very DEEP, Independant. Yawn! Nothing new here! This is what we get for making politics and teaching politics, as a "Science" in Colleges and Universities. I, personally, am SICK of divisionary, revenge style politics!
