Re: “Dispute in Council District 5 race over false campaign claims

Not much love lost between Gaebler and me, but if anyone deserves a little reckoning in this world before their reckoning that's sure to come in the next--it's Sarah Jack. Prosecution would be one way to give these political consultant class dirtbags at least some fear of conviction for their misdeeds.

Re: “Nearly $73,000 in dark money flows into Colorado Springs city election

I don't think people in District 6, let alone, any district appreciate the meddling of our city council election. This isn't Washington, it's OUR city! We can't just let Andy Pico and other city council members get bought and effect how our city is run! As if taking developer money and sticking the burden of the neglected action of the storm water runoff issue wasn't enough. He continues to prove that he doesn't have the best interest of citizens of district 6, or the town as a whole, in mind.

I really feel like Melanie Bernhardt would be our best candidate. She's someone who can more than relate to the disposition of the average Colorado Springs citizen, because she's fed up as we are. I believe we need someone with not just the know how, but also the right stoic attitude of cutting through the BS and getting things done. Definitely check out her website melaniebernhardt.com and see for yourself

Re: “Dispute in Council District 5 race over false campaign claims

What about a city ordinance prohibiting negative campaigning?

Is council on track to post the 12 new ordinances for the month? For this year: One on goats. One on a 'food policy commission' - One on selling lemonade in the front yard. One to create a commission on aging. Who knows how many on marijuana but enough to fill a small hard-drive.

Leaving the district 5 seat open for the next two years should be a considered option.

Re: “New female AFA commandant moving here soon, with her wife

In regard to why this news isnt being shouted from the rooftops, perhaps its because a person is appointed to such a position based upon the merit of their abilities and accomplishments (as the link in this article shows), and not because of their sexual orientation and family composition. Hats off to Weinstein for reducing a person and her family to a label and a talking point (not to mention his shameless attempt to somehow take partial credit by linking this decision to a protest from four years ago). Perhaps its also because its more of a business-as-usual happening than people have been led to believe, especially given the MRFFs regular hysterics. Whats more, one simply has to look at the chapels Facebook page to glimpse some examples of the religious diversity/freedom supported there but we dont hear about such things from Weinstein because it goes contrary to and lies beyond the purview of his narrow, biased agenda. All in all, dudes got issues.

Setting all of that aside - good on you, USAFA!

Re: “New female AFA commandant moving here soon, with her wife

Let's see, how did the Indy get to be the first to publish this story? If I am not mistaken, that email is for "official business" and for "intended addressees" on .mil or .edu accounts. So, when exactly did the Indy get approval to release a non-public email and beat the Air Force to it's own official release?

Second, the comments by Weinstein are rich. He has made it his mission to wipe out "agendas" at military academies and then immediately attacks the Air Force for not promoting an agenda! In his glee to fly the Rainbow Flag he seems to drop his demand for equality pretty quickly when it's something he agrees with.

Lastly, equality is what this is all about. The Air Force doesn't and shouldn't treat anyone differently. The Air Force doesn't pass out party hats when a new Commandant is announced. Having been at the Academy with BGEN (Sel) Goodwin and having worked with her in the Air Force, she wants to be just another Commandant; not some specially treated person that Weinstein demands she be. She brings a solid resume' and warrior ethos that will serve the Academy well. So the fact that the Air Force isn't making a big deal about this shows that perhaps the Air Force is farther along in this whole acceptance thing than Weinstein or even the Indy would want to admit.

Re: “New female AFA commandant moving here soon, with her wife

Hopefully, she won't be subjected to any mandatory conversion therapy by the local fighter mafia--and we've progressed beyond that narrow view and can accept some diversity in our Air Force. We'll see.

I, for one, am absolutely outraged at this complete and total affront to all that is holy at USAFA. I mean, really... a BOMBER pilot? The place is just going to hell in a flight bag.

Wow, good job Air Force. Can't go wrong with an AFGSC warrior. That's the correct worldview and will likely cut out some of the buffoonery at AFA.

Re: “New female AFA commandant moving here soon, with her wife

Whoa!! Hard to top Mikey's 'Hell's frozen over' assessment of this - hard to overstate the importance of - appointment in the midst of the most overtly homophobic administration ever. Reading the story from OutSmart (linked above), it's clear that Gen. Goodwin's fully qualified for the position and will very likely bring a much needed breath of fresh air to the position. One can only wonder whether her appointment isn't a gauntlet thrown down by those responsible for her appointment to an administration that's committed to second class citizenship for a whole slew of our citizens, gays in particular. Living just 35 miles down the road from her prior command, Barksdale AFB I had no idea she was in command there (one would have thought the Air Force would have chosen to highlight that fact) and I was moved by the fact that her personal quarters signage read Col. and Mrs. Goodwin. One can only hope that the AFA has equal good grace. Kudos to those responsible for her appointment and all good wishes to her & her family.

It is happening everywhere and I'm sure to more than Richard.
The first time signs disappeared his opponent signs had sprung up over night.

Re: “Reader: Leave the yard signs alone

So, unless those signs were burned, they still exist somewhere. In a car trunk, in someone's garage, in a landfill? Who knows? But I'll keep my eye out for them just the same. If I spot them there will be the dickens to pay. I wish there was a "find my iPhone" app for political signs. It's a sad state of affairs in our city that that last sentence found its way into print. PS If you are on good terms with your trash collector you might want to ask the guys to let you know if they should see them... and from where they were picked up.

I was cured 7months ago, i suffered from (HERPES) for 12yrs but with the help of Dr.Sandy herbal medicine, i was cured within few weeks of drinking the herbs he sent to me through courier delivery service. This same doctor also cured Akindele. Tovela from herpes, as soon as i heard she had herpes, i quickly refer her to Dr.Sandy and she was cured too after drinking his herbs.I have referred more than 8 persons to Dr.Sandy and they were all cured from their various illness.

Re: “Amanda's Fonda

We are long time West Siders, We knew the Woman who opened Amanda's Fonda in honor of her Sister. The food was very uniquely Mexican food and the people and service were wonderful. They have gone terribly down hill!
I went there yesterday with my girl friend who had a dinner plate I had the bowl of Menudo which had 4-5 pieces of tripe and very little homeny it was not good. I ordered the Broracho Chicken to take home for my Husband and I to share. This USED to be a wonderful, flavorful dish and a lot of it! Now you get a quarter of the dish...after eating this dish both my husband and I got Violently Sick!! With major chills, upset stomach and aches and pains!
When my husband went to let the Management know they were just rude and blew it off!!
We WILL be going to the Health Department!!DO NOT Eat Here!!!
