Re: “UPDATE: The secret life of Gordon Klingenschmitt

Kindler:

You're in a pretty exclusive club: those who don't find Admiral Klinger odious.

That Gordon Klingenschmitt can run for office and repeatedly get elected tells us everything we need to know about El Paso County elections. You can be disgraced, court martialed, kicked out of the Navy, and even called out by your GOP colleagues and still get elected.

https://www.denverpost.com/2015/03/26/gop-…

Klingenschmitt is living proof that there is no Republican crazy enough to lose an election in El Paso County.

Im glad you come to know a little bit more of him after this speech. Because simply questioning what makes him qualified for this at the beginning is just astonishing. It wont happen if you only knew a little bit more of his career path other than Star Trek beforehead.

Re: “UPDATE: The secret life of Gordon Klingenschmitt

With a title of The secret life of Gordon Klingenschmitt, one would suspect Mr. Klingenschmitt was engaged in drug activities or a clandestine plot against the liberal populace of Aspen, but, alas, Pam Zubeck only finds him guilty of protecting the unborn and taking cautionary measures against possible death threats from infanticidal progessives whose political views seem to endorse the butchering of unborn babies. Were that not enough to offend Pam Zubecks libertine values, she seemingly finds Klingenschmitt guilty of but another transgression of liberal perfection in that Klingenschmitt is, heaven forbid, a property owner in Colorado Springs and, to make matters worse, he owns a timeshare in the BlueGreen Vacation Club in Aspen. Then theres the two checking and savings accounts in two separate banks, which surly indicates money laundering, right? What a world, what a world, Zubeck and those of her ilk are melting, again.

Re: “Nor'wood pledges "Vision Plan" for public spaces in Banning Lewis Ranch

I'd love to see parties go down the road described by the resolution, but aren't we reminded every time we sign a contract to buy a new car, a house or even a time share not to rely on any promises made by the seller that are not spelled out IN THE CONTRACT? The resolution represents a step in the right direction, but in no way does it give the council a clear conscience over amending the annexation agreement as currently proposed. All residents of the city over the next 100 years deserve better.

And, for the record, I am not a sustainable growth advocate. I apologize if I somehow gave Pam Zubeck the wrong impression. Growth is not sustainable. I'm a sustainability advocate. And I am resigned that the city is not in a 12-step program to recover from growth addiction, so our only hope is we might get a more forward-thinking annexation agreement.

I don't expect this to happen, but the city would be better off purchasing all of the ranch and converting it into open space, parks, solar power generation and local food production. Financially we would come out way ahead over the path set up by the proposed amendment. It will cost us hundreds of millions of dollars.

Re: “The Denver Post must be owned by Coloradans, local leaders say

Thank you Pam Zubeck for writing this article. I'm in full support of what the local leaders are saying about rescuing the Denver Post back into local hands. I'm a local business owner in Colorado Springs ( https://www.merchantcardservicespro.com/colorado-springs-merchant-account/ ) and I believe in supporting local businesses. It's discouraging to see major media sources bought up by billionaires and hedge funds to pedal their own agendas.

Re: “Captain Kirk in Colorado Springs: A Trekkie's thoughts on William Shatner's UCCS speech

What an amazing article! With that lovely balance between the Trekkie and the journalist... But Shatner as seen through the eyes of a Trekkie is priceless - and it's as it should be!

---If you students take your diploma and scroll it up and look through it, as if it were a telescope, and fixate on points of light, you might see something different. You might see hope.

Okay, yes, its philosophical and needlessly romantic, but that's exactly what I would want and expect in a speech by William Shatner. He went on, saying that technology is moving at a breakneck pace. The world is changing around us all the time. The one thing that doesnt seem to change, or at least moves with tectonic slowness, is human nature," he said. "And thats the final frontier. Human nature needs to change. ---

This bit was extremely moving. A piece of advice we desperately need, especially right now, and it's so fitting that it should come from our Captain! And this whole article is so full of sentiment, it's beautiful. But hey, big fan of your writing here, so!

And what a wonderful, hopeful conclusion you gave us. Thank you!

Re: “Final Banning Lewis Ranch public meeting attracts scores

I guess a 'score' is 20. So in this case, the 'scores' referred to would be around two. 40 humans. 10 worked for the city leaving 30 citizens - probably anybody who attended can verify this - I was one of the apathetic ones who did not attend in order to speak and be ignored. But it does seem like a very low number and of course the public will not vote on this matter. When voting does happen, 37% is about the average turn-out. If there were a 'fail safe' means developed to allow for 'on-line' voting, would that greatly increase the number who actually vote or would it be a waste of time, money, effort and technology? If so many of us do not pay attention to the issues and research them, would there be any real advantage to having more people voting or is the area to benefit more by only those voting who take the time to review issues?

Re: “Immigration is not a local law enforcement duty

"Rosalina" is an illegal alien. Your article doesn't say one single word about her doing anything to become a legal citizen, so I'm going to assume she has done nothing. And paying taxes? Yeah, most illegal who pay income taxes do so by lying and impersonating another person by using their social security number, which is a felony.

No sympathy here. Not one bit.

Re: “El Paso County Sheriff's lieutenant has been given six raises under Elder

Huffor got Sgt the first day Elder was in office, he wasnt even on the list for promotion! Many of us who were overlooked who were highly qualified. No one gets Lt. after a year and now hes running a patrol specialized unit and has never had patrol experience. Never have you seen a Lt. in so many photo and press ops... He is Elders puppet. His wife is so under qualified but Elders right hand so he brings her everywhere. What do others in that position make? It used to be published but now the county covers that all up.
