Re: “A teachable moment

If you ever want to watch the evolution of trouble, just follow Pete Lee...bedmates with the leftist embezzler and hypocrite Jan Tanner. Don't believe the hype.

Re: “This summer, homelessness is everyone's problem

To truly understand the problem is to experience it. Homelessness is an exhausting, hopeless, frightening abyss, and until you know what it's like, you really have no idea wtf you're even talking about.

Re: “Wave your bandera with pride

"I can't believe the Indy still runs this shamelessly hateful, racist, un-funny column"

In an age when people increasingly get their "news" on-line, hardcopy periodicals like the Indy and the Gazette have to resort to hip, "edgy" means to attract viewers, even if the results are the opposite of what was/is desired.

"have you no pride?"

This question answers itself in every issue...

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

Yet another red herring. If Mikey likes it, then yes: the end game here is for Perdue to win his lawsuit so that bus benches can announce things like "Experience REASSIGNMENT SURGERY", "Celebrate ABORTION", and "SATAN is Lord". Yay.

Re: “5 surprising facts about homeless camps

Where else can people go when bed-bug infested motels on Platte are charging $100 a night? And I agree with Cameron Stone -- campers are too afraid to draw any attention to their sites, and in constant fear of early morning slash & burn police raids -- the type Josh Carrier used to conduct with gusto.

Re: “Wave your bandera with pride

I can't believe the Indy still runs this shamelessly hateful, racist, un-funny column -- have you no pride? If you're going to be so inclusive of this kind of unabashed hate speech, why not run a column called 'Ask A Conservative' -- it would be milder by far and funnier without a doubt.

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

Here's an idea, KRCC: do a "wish you were here" segment on the unsolved cold blooded murder of your former employee Jocelyn Sandberg -- or is she already out of sight, out of mind? How quickly some of you people forget.

Re: “Mr. and Miss Gay Colorado Springs Pageant

Will the festivities be followed by one of Club Q's orgy parties? Oh, I guess not...they discriminate -- guys only. Sorry ladies.

"The orgy party last Monday was HUGE. Yes - litterally! ;-) At last count there were about 30 guys in attendance and everyone had a great time. Without going into any details - it was an orgy in the truest sense of the word. AWESOME!

For those of you that have never been, here’s how it works. Since this is a private event hosted by GO USA (gay orgy USA), you don’t need a membership. The doors open at 8:00pm and close at 8:30. This way everybodies in the cluband ready to have fun without being interrupted by late cummers! It is B.Y.O.B. - GO USA provides cups, ice and mixers. It is 100% discreet and no need to be concerned.

Bring some extra cash with you...we carry different types of lubes and toys..."

Re: “This summer, homelessness is everyone's problem

This town is truly a "great place to be homeless".... All the handouts do help a majority of the homeless in their efforts to get off our streets. Unfortunately, those freebies also enable a sizeable minority of the homeless who are jerks, bums, and derelicts to hang out in our community. We have lots of folks like this in our city but we do not actively support them in this way of life - why should we do so with homeless folks? Some agencies (not in our town) get to know their clientele and if they are not interested in changing their lifestyle, are OK with saying "Sorry, no more for now". This can be done with love and respect on both sides. I believe part of this problem is that "helping the homeless" has become an established industry here. We have a growing number of CEOs, vice-presidents, supervisors, and directors who have an interest in the status quo. The local industry has evolved into a grant-funded, slow moving Leviathan. Homelessness has a number of causes, and most of those causes have been place since the 1970s. It'll become interesting when sufficient citizens start saying "enough". I've been involved with several of the major providers since 1972 (helped start several of then, actually). I'd like to think we have learned a few tricks since those days. One thing I have learned is that endless handouts do not help everyone. I would hope we would examine other community's successes and try them here. Again, we are dealing with a Leviathan......

Re: “5 surprising facts about homeless camps

More you don't know...very often ppl see homeless camps and start using the area as a dumping ground for their trash. Also, the Keep Colorado Springs Beautiful group picks up the trash in the creeks that were already there before the homeless, but the homeless often camp by those same creeks. Also, the homeless rarely make campfires, they're afraid of attention from fire crews and cops. The additional clothing and other materials don't create any more of a fire hazard than the millions of tons of straw, dead leaves and other forest debri already in existence.

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

"Being ignorant is not a positive when you are attempting to revoke Rights of others"

Spot on, as those on the far-Left care not one iota about the rights of their fellow citizens, because if they agree with a stance or policy, they feel it should be supported and legislated to the maximum extent, but if they disagree, it should be banned outright, regardless of what tangible facts and hard data demonstrate and/or prove.

Such inclusive, self-centered, "Do what I say, as I know what's best for you!" thinking is becoming more prevalent in a segement of society that increasingly lets the gov't make decisions that used to be left to individuals, and is indicative of just how far we've regressed in terms of personal responsibility and accountability for one's actions.

"Mick" and "few" blindly dish out invective and disparagement during their irrational rants, then act shocked and offended when such verbalizations are reciprocated, further proving how little they actually have to say in their "all form, no substance" diatribes.

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.
