Re: “No bones about it

As a dog owner and lover I found the article "No Bones About It" very one sided. People might think it's a great idea to bring your pets everywhere but I feel it is a very selfish way of thinking. In a restaurant environment, the last thing I want to see is a bunch of dogs, calmly laying down or not. Restaurants have a hard enough time keeping their establishments clean from adults and kids visiting and then you add dogs, big or small, to the picture and it could become very costly, not to mention a liability for the store owner/manager if one time a dog bites a patron. Lets consider people who have allergies, dog phobias and any other personal issues people may have with animals in general. People have an unwarranted notion that everyone loves their dog and are oblivious about personal boundaries. No matter how much I love my dogs I will not put my dogs before other people. Let's not lose our heads and truly consider our pets as other people.

Re: “#whyIMarch

People who don't understand why people marched don't want to understand why people marched. The marchers are not hysterical and certainly not uneducated.

I know scientists and artists that marched because programs are going to cut. I know moms who marched with their daughters to say it is important to be involved.
Hopefully it will motivate the millions who don't even bother to vote to see that their votes do matter.

Re: “#whyIMarch

We marched because we have been listening carefully to the words that spewed directly from the mouth of Putin's lapdog. Mr. Tannim posts his drivel over hysterics from a pack of alt-right lies.

Mr. Tannim, you would not recognize a fact if it bit you on the butt. That's the bottom line.

Re: “#whyIMarch

The level of clueless derpishness is legion in these sheeple...

They marched over hysterics from a liberal pack of lies, and never bothered to dig into the facts.

That's the bottom line.

Re: “LGBTQ community allies show support

I am disappointed with the democrat party I have been associated with and voted
For My Entire adult Life. The dem party at least as the COS INDY portrays it- stands for nothing but hormone therapy for pre pubescent teens with gender confusion. Shame the f-*** on you- i don't think 7 year olds have a damn clue who they are- I am going to withdraw myself from
The dem party- or at least
This shitty newspaper- if this is all they can focus on

I don't think Kristin understands that a "free speech zone" prohibits "free speech" unless in a designated area.

Re: “LGBTQ community allies show support

HORRIBLE, UNIFORMED INDIVIDUALS AND ARTICLE SHOULD HAVE SELECTED MORE INFORMED LGBTQ INDIVIDUALS TO RESPOND..... AND, to use the term "lifestyle" as though being gay is something one chooses is insulting. Are you concerned? Hell, yes!!!!
Every single one of his administrative appointments is anti-LGBTQ. Some, like Betsy DeVos, Trumps pick for Education secretary, have simply donated hundreds of thousands of dollars to anti-LGBTQ organizations. But others, like Mike Pence, his vice-president, have supported conversion therapy and signed legislation that sent same-sex couples to jail for simply filling out a marriage application. Which means that, despite Trumps apparent ambiguity on the subject, the lawmakers who support LGBTQ equality are very, very nervous and for good reason.

Re: “We vote

As luck would have it Andrew both of this elections leading candidates are going to keep you gainfully employed for a long time to come. Hopefully, one day you will realize that being a bullet catcher for the military industrial complex is a pretty crappy way to make a living.

Re: “We vote

Thanks, Andrew for putting a real face to the reason my father, a career military man, said that the military should not be allowed to vote because they vote for job security. We are not a militaristic society - if we were there would be more than a fraction of a percent of our population in the military.

I'm a Vietnam vet - I joined and served willingly until I got to Vietnam. I then began to understand what that war was about, and it was mainly about money, and the resources of the region that we had interests in. All wars are like that.

Re: “Locals reflect in the wake of Trump visit

I wonder how embarrassed Steve Mc is right now.

WTH does this even mean?

"I'm safe because I'm in his — well, he's like Hitler. Isn't that what they say?"

My brain.

Re: “Whither Colorado Springs?

As a former Colorado Springs resident - I went to high school (Coronado), college (CC), and worked there for a few years (as a "computer programmer/analyst... remember those?) until I moved to NYC in 1981, so long ago... I miss what CS used to be. Back in the day, the "clean industry" was mostly electronics research and development. It felt kind of like the "Route 128 of the west." But even while I was still there, it started to shift. Ultra-conservatives like Will Perkins were starting to strut their stuff in the political-social arena (shoulda stuck to selling cars!), even while Richard Skorman was continuing to grow his haven for the thinking class downtown. Slowly, inevitably, those electronics makers started to be replaced by religious right organizations, lobbyists, non-profits, etc., of all kinds. It was sad to see happen, in what was otherwise such an encouraging place to live. The dramatic vistas, outdoor lifestyle, biking, hiking, camping, and skiing opportunities would, for me, start to be tarnished by the feeling that this state (and city) didn't love everyone equally. I left at the beginning of that shift, but have watched it from afar. Maybe I'm wrong about how it feels there now. I haven't been back in many years, though I'll likely visit soon. I hope there's at least a part of the feeling I once had there! It was a great life then!

Re: “Canna live without it?

I think as time goes by and they see that it's a benign substance the attitude will change for the positive. Alcohol is far worse than Society deals with the consequences of that so I think a little tolerance is in order

Re: “Bucking the system

Many definitions of being a hipster! I think "beards" are common for a hipster. Its just that beards also make a fashion statement. Maintaining beards will allow a man to look classy and more stylish if managed well. Beard grooming tactics and techniques are available to enrich and ensure facial hair growth.
