Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

All of what has been noted is true-ish. But my problem is a citizenry which seems either cowed or - worse yet - disinterested in the obvious fact that Colorado Springs' voters are being regularly manipulated by fancy-pants rulers. Knowing for certain that stupidity is not the issue, one has to wonder just what is holding back an intelligent and fairly balanced citizenry from insisting that such manipulation is not to be tolerated.
With any luck, this will be made crystal clear in April. Although, to be frank, much damage could be done just between now and then.

Did they have to order all new business cards/stationery as well?

Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

our stormwater problems stem from the cheap ass teabaggers around here, mostly repubicans, that don't want to pay for what they use. it costs money to live in a local governed society, if you can't afford it... move. this city is the perfect example of what happens with extended repubican control... crappy roads, underfunded police and fire departments, under-maintained parks and infrastructure (including stormwater) that is billions of dollars behind in maintenance. the other parts of this state that are not run by teabaggers are doing exponentially better!!!

Muslims are responsible for stormwater issues? I thought it was Democrats.

Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

In a world of alternative facts and where people living in Muslim countries are banned from immigrating to the United States by a non Muslim ban it is clear that politicians can say anything they want and we will buy it.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Let me understand this, mr.b. You looked at my previous comments and predicted that I would act in the future as I had in the past! You should join the California Psychics!

As hard as you looked, you could not find anything to debunk in all that I posted, so you post this trivial anecdote in a desperate attempt to hide the fact.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Mr K.

Thank you so much! I noticed some of your comments on other posts and made a wager with a buddy that you were both a narcissist and the type of person that had been so influenced by current propaganda that you would react using exactly the tactics that you did.

Hook, line and sinker!

Looks like I'm drinking for free tonight.

Soma, by the way, is the mind control drug used in Aldous Huxley's "Brave New World".

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

mr.b blusters, "Do you even know what a Marxist is, or is that a term you heard 45 years ago and never bothered to research?"

You are hoping, mr.b, that a snarky reply will obscure the fact that you are dodging my question. Which might mean you do indeed consider yourself a Marxist, but are too embarrassed to admit it.

In response to your question, I have probably forgotten more about Marxism than you ever knew to begin with, but I still remember enough to make you look foolish.

mr.b suggests, "...take your soma (it will help with the paranoia)..."

Since we are playing armchair psychiatrist, I cannot help wondering that you display your screen name entirely in lower case. I hope that is not a sign of feelings of inferiority.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

I believe what mr.b is saying is that our current Fearless Leader is no worse than any of his predecessors. The last time I heard that argument, was just before Richard Milhous "Tricky Dick" Nixon resigned from office in disgrace.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

mr.b whines, "Good job cherry picking though. I list F.D.R, Carter, Bush and Obama as having similar policies, and you only see Bush."

Bush was the only one that needed to be clarified. Sorry if I hurt your poor, little feelings by making you explain your gibberish. At any rate, you clarified your position well enough. You were referring to both Republicans, as well as Democrats, because both parties answer to the same masters.

So, I was not cherry picking, but you built an ugly strawman, and then crowed about how easy it was to knock down. You wrote, "Stay angry and prejudiced against your fellow citizens,..." Thank you, Dr. Freud, but I am not angry against my fellow citizens. On the contrary, I am proud of the numbers turning out to chastise the new administration.

If you are referring to those fellow citizens who helped put the little baby in office, I am not angry at them. I am sorry for them. Many of them already have buyer's remorse. Many of them thought the apple of Putin's eye was exaggerating to make a point during the campaign and now are horrified that he meant every word literally.

If you are referring to the racists of the so-called "Alt Right," they do not consider me a fellow citizen and I return the sentiment.

As for prejudice, when you posted this reply I had only asked a few questions. You had, and still have, nothing on which to base such a charge against me. So, you have only thrown your own prejudice into the spotlight.

"You make an excellent sheep Mr.K." Thank you. You are not such a bad sheep yourself, but you are a terrible propagandist. Bah!

Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

Stormwater runoff is a development problem - thus developers should be paying for any problems that occur.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Mr k.

I never called Hillary a global terror threat. I stated that working with Russia to contain a global terror threat, has proven productive in the past.

WOW.... your ability to cherry pick and toss around clichs at the same time is both impressive and impotent. Quite the achievement.

Do you even know what a Marxist is, or is that a term you heard 45 years ago and never bothered to research?

Your response is a textbook example of - Ignoratio Elenchi

How long has it been since your lobotomy?

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Mr.b, I do not agree that Hillary Clinton was ever "a global terror threat" and Moscow's candidate has denied any connection with the Russians. President Roosevelt, on the other hand let everyone know what was going on every step of the way and proceeded only with popular approval.

Furthermore, so-called "American prejudice" when the war ended was in favor of the Soviet Union, not against it. It took a lot of hard work, including the infamous McCarthy Hearings, to turn popular sentiment around.

For a Marxist, you certainly are clueless when it comes to Soviet history.

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

mr.b asks, "Have you ever considered that both parties are working for the same corporate sponsors?"

LOL! Are you just finding out now? I stumbled on to that fact about 45 years ago, only the so-called "corporate sponsors" were known as the Ruling Class back then.

So, how long have you been a Marxist?

This phenomenon you describe - did that begin to appear during the Rivera administration and grow rather rapidly through Bach and exponentially with Suthers?

Re: “Colorado Springs renames stormwater division

Could this be a lame attempt at starting the 'marketing campaign' to gain public acceptance for the mandatory stormwater fee that will be imposed by city council after the election?

Re: “Lamborn calls Trump's immigration order "prudent"

Mr K.

Working with the Russians to combat a global terror threat, is also reminiscent of the F.D.R, Stalin relationship that ended the Nazi threat. Folks called F.D.R. Stalin's puppet as well. Truman on the other hand caved to American prejudice against the Russian's, as well as, his own Napoleon complex and effectively laid the ground work for the cold war.
Truman was more Clintonesque in that way.
