Re: “Local health care activists face charges despite Sen. Cory Gardner’s apparent request to dismiss

That CAN group sure was 'ready to be arrested'. They went to martyr themselves and been bragging about being arrested ever since. They want to be called heroes. Did they not tell Nat they want to go to trial, which is their right, because of hidden evidence? One of them paid the ticket took a year on probation. They were bragging about being arrested. One person who was on probation from the getting a ticket for the 'sit stand' protest didn't join them for that reason. Sorry Debra that the other women didn't tell you they were out to get arrested because they brag and brag and brag about it. I'm still not sure how getting a ticket is being called being arrested. You were all free to go once outside the building.

That CAN page came down fast with all the conversations about getting arrested and collecting money for the 'COS 4'. The organizers since figured they are gun toting socialists and had to re-brand because they aren't 'leftists'.

Re: “Audience counters Douglas Bruce at election forum

Ms Cathey

Jill Gaebler chose to run for office and become an elected offcial giving the people a council of three members who appear to be able to understand and grasp numbers and six who appear continually perplexed by them.

The three who appear to have the ability to read their packets and understand the information therin are opposed to 2A.

As an elected official, the comments made verbally or in print by Jill Gaebler are fair game to be refereneced as Mrs. Carno. The statement below appears to be an accurate reprint of what Jill Gaebler actually said.

"City Council member Jill Gaebler says nobody should get a pass, and I agree with Gaebler."

This statement has been attributed to Mrs. Gaebler in different press organs and appears to be a true version of what she stated.

How is it 'less than truthful' on the part of Mrs. Carno to quote accurately what was stated or to reference Gaebler?

She said it. She owns it.

What might benefit the process is for Mrs. Gaebler to engage her brain before putting her mouth in gear. And rather than run for public office, consider becoming a door greeter at Walmart or something less demanding of critical thinking skills.

Re: “Mikey Weinstein talks “fighting words” and the military’s religious oppression in the Trump era

A battle has been joined between the dominionist fanatics of the right (which, 'tolerantly' includes homophobes, racists, anti-Semites - don't let the current judeophilia/Israel-worship fool you, misogynists, overt fascists & their 'alt-right' alter egos, climate science & evolution deniers) and the heirs of the enlightenment who genuinely embrace diversity, democracy, free thought, scientific inquiry, and equal rights for all as core values(the failures of our materialistic, success-obsessed, Capitalistic society to live up to those ideals notwithstanding). The societal dysfunction which currently afflicts America (and the west, in general) has resulted in a skewed quadrangular arrangement with the right wing & GOP (dominionist Christian Fundamentalists) at one corner, opposed by the Democrats (DNC/Clintonista wing, Wall Street beholden, neoliberal Capitalists, 'Red' herring obsessed, war-industry supported, which is neither 'liberal' or 'progressive'), neither of whom is capable of, or desires to deal with the realities they've created over the last decades and function only to gain superiority over the other in order to execute their own private agendas nationally & internationally absent concern for humanity or the common good. On the 3rd, and largest, corner of the quadrangle is the majority of Americans who yearn only for stability and some sense of security but who've been fed a diet of American exceptionalism and 'fake news' for so long that they no longer recognize what's real or how to sort the real from the unreal and are thus fodder for whichever of the two former groups is most able to herd them into their corner; which at present are the allies of the 'current occupant'. In the 4th & smallest corner are those who've been able to view the system with some degree of objectivity and understand that it is entirely broken with no 'savior' from either of the two main corners forthcoming but whose numbers are too small to exert any noticeable effect. History has shown us the nature of what's in store for mankind if the domionist right wing succeeds in Trumping (I use the word advisedly) humanistic values; Christian fascism as seen in the Inquisition or the Third Reich. This must not be allowed; Mikey & MRFF understand that. What might come out of our dysfunctional political system in the future is impossible to tell, but it's clear what must not be allowed. So, Silveria's failure to add Mikey's 'eight words' is, in essence, a failure to make a principled stand for the values of the enlightenment in favor of walking a tightrope in hopes of satisfying the two opposing ends of the political quadrangle. Not reassuring.

Mikey Weinstein is a vicious pile of dog crap that deserves to be stepped on and spread all over the lawn that needs Jesus as his Savior. I wonder if he is at all related to Harvey Weinstein. Harvey sexually molests his victims while Mikey verbally and emotionally molests Christians.

Re: “Cannabis potency numbers can be misleading

All of this won't matter if Sessions gets his way to shut down the STATE OF systems of control concerning Cannabis. I saw the retailer near me shut their doors over the implied threat Sessions poses. The DC corporation you all think is the federal gov't won't take Cannabis/marijuana (marihuana) of the drug schedule due to Big Pharma's control over Congress on this issue. The whole thing is a show and it's all fiction. Even the Congressman that has intro'd a bill to fix this is probably just playing his part for distraction purposes. Please read the following pdf for more comprehension.

Re: “Mikey Weinstein talks “fighting words” and the military’s religious oppression in the Trump era

There are many folk that will get the shock of their "existence" when their earthly body dies and they realize there's another "life" afterward they had discounted completely. They were warned of such in a book they considered total fiction, and they will stand before the One that used the hand of mankind to write that book. As I did on 7/5/1991 at 10:30am, it's much better to bow your knee now in repentance to your Creator YHVH, than go before Him then. It is at least advisable to start the dialog while still alive here than wait until then. Try reading that book as if your very eternity depending on you doing so. Whether you accept YHVH's love and offer of salvation through Yeshua/Jesus, or not, chooses your eternal "home". Not deciding is refusal, and I pray all choose correctly, in the name of Yeshua, Amen.
Mikey Weinstein should re-think his completely.

Re: “Cannabis potency numbers can be misleading

Check your math. If a sample tests at 25%, and is off by, at most, 15%, then that strain COULD range from about 21%, to almost 29%.

Re: “The left's answer to emboldened white supremacists? A militia of their own.

"Would it be okay if people who are truly progressive -- that is, renouncing violence in all forms -- declined the so-called "protection" that this group of mixed up people wants to offer?"

Pacifists tried it their way in Charlottesville until they were circled and huddled inside a church. Armed anti-fascists took the blunt of the violence so the pacifists wouldn't get hurt. You can beat your swords and shields to plows and shears, but it doesn't mean the fascists will. They are incensed by pacifism.

Re: “Leave your stinkin' drone at home

What about all the Harley Davidson motorcycles riding through the national and state parks. Way louder than any drone. The FAA officially controls the airspace not the parks or the city or anyone else.

Re: “Audience counters Douglas Bruce at election forum

Mayor Suthers has demanded six tax and fee increases in the last two years. Seniors and lower income folks can't afford an additional estimated $282 a year. Note that no police officers were named in the employee increases on next years budget. This is known as a "bait and switch". It truly would be nice if the citizens could see both sides of the issues and not just what government/developer agenda spouts!

Re: “UPDATE: Neighbor structure steals privacy, Colorado Springs residents allege

The rest of the story: The statement by Peter Wysocki (above) was FALSE. The building was approved by his office with an illegal size and setback. The numbers on the plan submitted were wrong - falsified, in our opinion, to make them appear to code. When alerted to this, Peter Wysocki ignored us and now, after six months of trying to get him to do the right thing, is helping the homeowner bring this project to code (by some very deceptive means). I hope you all will take a look at our website, "Protect our Westide". All the details are there. Thanks! http://www.protectourwestside.com

Re: “Local health care activists face charges despite Sen. Cory Gardner’s apparent request to dismiss

Those who break the law should have to deal with the consequences of their actions. Take some responsibility and deal with it. They knew exactly what they were doing and city resources were deployed to handle it.

This is a typical progressive action... break laws + whine = injustice

Re: “Local health care activists face charges despite Sen. Cory Gardner’s apparent request to dismiss

Thanks Nat Stein for covering this. One clarification: regarding " ...many of whom had participated in a similar action at Gardners office the month prior. In that instance, they stayed until 7:30 p.m., got tired and went home. No police." We didn't go home because we were tired. Andy Merritt, Gardner's state director, met with us and gave us his business card. We felt like we had made some progress towards getting some straight answers and accountability, so we went home with Andy's card and his promise to follow up with us regarding Gardner holding a town hall. We soon discovered that the phone number on Andy's card was not his. The office claimed that this was a mistake at the printer. There was no follow up, and no way to follow up, because emails went unanswered and phone calls went to a voicemail that belonged to someone other than the person identified on the business card, and were not returned.

A look at the handouts facilitated by your utility bill to Developers. More to come if 2A passes and the taxes ("fees") are collected on your utility bill. Vote NO on 2A.

Re: “Jenkins buys RBD downtown properties

Dear RBD; Re-read your mission because everyone who works for you will approve any variance.

That City council of progressives is so very afraid that infill won't happen. This sale is underhanded and should not be approved below assessed value. By the way - assessed value doesn't include realtor fees.
