Oh, and just an FYI, but when our nation was founded, a heck of a lot of people thought slavery was wrong and advocated doing away with it. It was allowed as a compromise with the goal of eventually eliminating it. It remains a very dark stain on our history and the repercussions of which we are still dealing with today. So trying to compare to PP's founding pretty well backfires on you.
Are you really that dumb as to think all that money goes to cervical cancer screenings? LOL... OK then, could I interest you in a bridge?
Its a great article on recreational activities for children. Parents must more focus on their children physical sports activities rather than provide them more of electronic gaming devices while bringing them up.

"Makes one wonder what they are doing with all that federal money they get which cannot legally be spent on abortions."
You told us the answer to that question earlier in your message: cervical cancer screening. Don't you read your own messages?
By the way, "most tests for cervical cancer are sent to 3rd party lab companies..." Is there something morally wrong or criminal about sending samples to outside labs for analysis, because my doctors do this all the time.
"A company which was founded by a proponent of eugenics who thought minorities, especially blacks, and people with mental disabilities should be sterilized."
We live in a nation which was founded by proponents of slavery who thought blacks were not members of the human species. Obviously, organizations can change over time.
Hmmm... a 1.3 billion dollar private company which gets more than 1/3rd of its funding from the federal government? A "health care" company which really only provides one type of health care other than abortions in that it will gather samples for cervical cancer screening (they do NOT provide mammograms, they will only give a referral, and most tests for cervical cancer are sent to 3rd party lab companies). The only "planning" of parenthood they do is abortions, almost none of their facilities do any kind of pre-natal care and they do absolutely NO fertility related care. A company which was founded by a proponent of eugenics who thought minorities, especially blacks, and people with mental disabilities should be sterilized. Makes one wonder what they are doing with all that federal money they get which cannot legally be spent on abortions.
"Does it surprise you that CPB is not in the business of funding losers? Doesn't fit in with your personal stereotype of capital-P "Progressives?"
It points out how progressives are two faced and only care about getting what they want...especially with OTHER PEOPLE'S MONEY!!!
Why must the taxpayers fund public broadcasting...because we like it and people who don't watch and listen are dumb.
One can only hope. Lamborn had his time; it's past time for some new blood and representation.
For years I managed a small and local Colorado organic farm on the Western Slope. Afterwards I spent years in the corporate world working with the states largest and most influential farmers. I can say, across the board, farming is one of the hardest jobs to do. Mike Callicrate gives a dang good assessment of the Food Maven situation.
I absolutely see how Food Maven's model simply encourages super-markets to continue ordering too much food, and simply allows them to sell it for a profit to restaurants and other businesses which should otherwise be ordering from a smaller and local farm. All under the guise of environmental responsibility.
Thanks Mike for a good read and another perspective on this discussion.
leloupe ..... Colorado Springs is behind and at odds with Denver and Boulder. That's always been true. One can't help but wonder if that's related, in part, to the fact that the Broadmoor Hotel has always played an overweighted part in CS politics. And when I say Broadmoor, that includes El Pomar. I was recently told by a person familiar with the political scene here (for decades) that, "Nothing happens in Colorado Springs without the blessing of El Pomar."
If this has been going on for a long time then perhaps we should thank Mr. Anschutz for his bold and brazen attempts to run this city. At least we can see what he's up to. And fight back.
Yep. Completely ridiculous spending taxpayers money on something that is not needed. Hope everyone in that church is praying for our children to get fed and educated.
"We are no different than Rome and we are going to fall just like them."
I once heard, (but cannot confirm), the poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti once said, "Rome was never like this!"
"Well it shows you how the Progressives think..."
I hardly think two bloggers are a representative sample of so-called "Progressives" (with a capital P). If it is any consolation, I do not think you are ignorant.
But I do think it is a great mistake to lump all progressives together, just as it is for progressive wannabes to lump all conservatives together, as if there are not often huge differences between any given two, who both proudly call themselves conservative.
"CPB I just found out likes to give money to stations who are able to raise the most money."
Does it surprise you that CPB is not in the business of funding losers? Doesn't fit in with your personal stereotype of capital-P "Progressives?"
" The only people that are allowed to manipulate in the Progressives world are the do gooders like those who run public broadcasting and our Government in general."
You forgot to mention the Russians, who are allowed to use trolls and bots to manipulate our elections by drowning out all opinion, conservative as well as progressive, in favor of delusional conspiracy theories.
Such a waste of money.
Oh and the CPB I just found out likes to give money to stations who are able to raise the most money. I know this because I personally talk to a person that worked in public media.
Public Broadcasting does allow some what advertising....they can't do Call For Actions or as Prairie Chix says manipulation. The only people that are allowed to manipulate in the Progressives world are the do gooders like those who run public broadcasting and our Government in general.
No I am the dumb one. Well it shows you how the Progressives think they are smarter than everyone else. After all they use "other peoples money" to piss on the rest of us. We are no different than Rome and we are going to fall just like them. How do you know that I am uneducated??? Just because I don't agree with your worldview. I am a conservative, but not a FOX News fan. Their are other Faux News so called that hold to my worldview just as NPR and then some hold to Progressive World views.
If anyone is the adult in the room, its the Conservatives not the Progressives who think they are on the side of the Greater good. Look at how many of the upper crust of public broadcasting are quite wealthy.
The author doesn't realize that the chapel has U.S. National Historic Landmark status or that his 'argument' is so off the wall as a reason he feels millions could be better spent.
Mr. Harry Miller - the upper chapel is Protestant and I am not sure what you are on about that it is some sort of religious bias. Then again you seem to think the upper Chapel is full of glitz. You also mistake the Buddhist chapel for Muslim.
