Re: “UPDATED: Transgender service in the military — what's happening now?

Totally opposed to transgender surgery paid for by the military. Why should American citizen's money be used
to change someone's sex? This is elective surgery. It is insane. Is the military paying for cosmetic surgery? Surely not!

Re: “Leave your stinkin' drone at home

not like a photographer, click click click click disrupting the peace and quite of the forest constantly harassing wildlife with their incessant clicking.

drones used responsibly are no more annoying then a conversation between hikers, the sound of an approaching hiker, or a photographer taking picture after picture.

and chasing birds off. in most cases, i've seen raptors interested in drones, as are smaller birds. a responsible drone user won't harass wildlife or people. just enjoy using their camera that just happens to fly.

Re: “Another reader's take on Incline traffic

The fact that you put your time down means that you are showing off so actually the more people that's there is good because you can show off more.

Re: “UPDATE: Female CSPD police officers win federal court decision about physical testing

When there is disparate impact discrimination under Title VII, plaintiffs are entitled to actual damages (e.g., back pay) and may be awarded attorney's fees but not compensatory (e.g., emotional distress) or punitive damages.

Re: “Another reader's take on Incline traffic

Great example of the ideology that's prevailed recently: "A few inconsiderate people caused me to have a bad time, so we need to change the rules for everyone."
There's nothing inherently dangerous about descending the Incline. People should stay in control and yield to uphill hikers. Yes, there are a few morons who don't follow these basic principles. There's also a few morons in every other [less strenuous] walk of life. Hold these individuals accountable instead of ordering change for the masses.
Also understand that the Incline is a popular, public hike. If you're an enthusiast and are going to have a problem with people getting in your way while crushing it in 24 minutes (nice work), here's a pro tip: maybe don't do the Incline on one of the busiest days of the year.
Look, I get frustrated by the amount of people on the Incline and the lack of respect/etiquette of some, too. My solution: I typically only do it during non-peak times. Otherwise, I put up with it and don't complain, or hike something else.

Re: “Divisions in El Paso County Democratic Party revealed in defections and drama

If the last election told us anything it's that what we have been doing doesn't work as well as we thought. So we can keep doing the same thing and continue to lose or we can step outside the box and try something new. I'm up for something new and I believe that new blood never hurts as long as they also listen to experience.

Re: “Another reader's take on Incline traffic

The rules recommend going down Barr Trails for safety. There's no rule that says you can't go back down the Incline. Of course common hiking courtesy is that uphill traffic has right of way and those going down shouldn't endanger those going up. It's wide enough that there shouldn't be an issue if people stay to the right.

Re: “Another reader's take on Incline traffic

Going down is supposed to to be against the rules, right? Why are you attacking the guy that follows the rules?

The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. Thanks to Electra for taking a new approach!

By the way, I think it is telling that there is a photo of a weight room with a caption that "Police officers use weights to get in shape" and the room is completely empty!

Re: “UPDATED: Transgender service in the military — what's happening now?

"It's only male and female, girls and boys, XX and XY. " - John Ritchie

There is also XXY, XYY, XXYY, etc. XXY occurs in about 1 out of every 1000 to 2000 births. About the same for XYY. XXYY is more rare at around 1 in every 40,000 to 80,000 births.

You really should watch Through the Wormhole Season 7 Episode 3 where Morgan Freeman explores if there are more than two genders. You will find it eye opening.

Re: “Divisions in El Paso County Democratic Party revealed in defections and drama

You'd never hear this level of honesty about or from the local Republican (or any other) party. I can be a party member and still be open minded when when looking at the candidates presented.

Sorry that Liz feels a volunteer is a job that owes her something. Don't pick up the box to avoid injury.

Colorado Springs is no place for snowflake libtards. Please leave our nice conservative (red) city for the likes of Boulder. Signed, every red-blooded, patriotic Republican in this town!
