Re: “Parting words from the Sage

How can I translate my feelings about your exit? Adios, Arrivederci, Auf Wiedersehen, Sayonara or just plain, Don't let the door hit you in the ass.

For years you've been espousing your leftist, out-of-touch Bullsh!t in this rag and now you're leaving, it's a step in the right direction for the Independent and yet the smattering of indoctrinated zombie drone followers you have can still follow your rantings at the even less popular and dwindling readership of the C/S Business Journal. Yeah, sounds about right, you're going out with a whimper......

You're are a failed Investment Banker, Real Estate Broker, Politician and now, Journalist...... Your accomplishments are even less than your insights. What a fantastic and insightful life you've had......
S-A-R-C-A-S-M button OFF.

If you really care for the city you claim to love then go to Tahiti, GO, BE FREE...... Maybe just maybe your idiotic rantings will be forgotten by your minions so that they can then become contributing members to society.

Buh Bye.......

Re: “Parting words from the Sage

I wish you the best and enjoyed your columns for our few years in CoSps. I've seen this coming for sometime ... columns bemoaning how the city ignores every chance to improve itself, the destructive power of stupid voters using TABOR to degrade their own city and it still begs questions about why people vote against their own best interests and piss in their own beer. It wasn't our home town, so we left last year for places with adult supervision and no TABOR. Thanks again for great columns and trying your best to improve what could be an amazing place.

Re: “Parting words from the Sage

John, I'll miss your acerbic wit!

As for that place in Tahiti, I'd go for that. Warm weather soothes old bodies. A tropical drink with one of those umbrellas listening to the surf...

Re: “Make Colorado great again

Boulder's population is growing at a much slower rate than Colorado Springs, and yet, its economy continues to diversify and attract new business. Remember the scorn that Colorado Springs elite heaped on Boulder for its growth boundaries, and yet:

Re: “Make Colorado great again

Mr. Tannim, while your thoughts are murky, your methods are crystal clear. Since you cannot refute any arguments using facts and logic, you resort to the crudest form of name-calling, and think you are so clever no one notices your deficiencies.

Furthermore, as I have affirmed many times in this blog, I am not a liberal. I appreciate the fact that your entire rant depends on stereotyping liberals. That is your problem.

Re: “Make Colorado great again

GOP means Graveyard Of Principles. Cannot make any city great again until the people remove TABOR, the GOP, and all special interests the GOP caters to.

Re: “Make Colorado great again

Mr. Tannim, your thought processes are so Hazy, it Hurts to read through your post.

Recently, I was called out on this blog in another thread for protecting my anonymity. Mr. Tannim just reminded me of another reason I use a screen name. I prefer not to be subjected to puerile puns upon my name by ideologues who cannot defend their prejudices with facts and logic.

Re: “Make Colorado great again

Once again Hazy Hurts spews his nonsense.

He assumes linear growth. That's never the case. He fears growth because growth brings success, and he hates success and growth.

He is unable to use the term, "President Trump." It's because he can't accept that the world has changed in ways he can't handle, in ways far beyond his capacity to process or adjust to.

He uses terms like "feral billionaire" because he hates success and can't stand a differing viewpoint.

In short, he's a bitter old man, a has-been of the local political scene that has moved far beyond him, desperate to stay relevant instead of staying on his porch yelling at kids to get off his lawn.

So here he rants about an 8-step plan to harm the state. It's not satire, folks, even though he's trying to present it as such.

And it exposes the true liberal agenda of destroying all that works in favor of what doesn't to reach their dystopic version of utopia.

Sorry, Johnny, but your time has long past. You lost. Get over it.

Here's a participation ribbon and a coloring book. Now go home and let the modern adults run things, not the worn-out hippie commies like you.

Re: “The next chapter of Suthers' regulatory legacy

"If he has any bias, it's reasonable to assume that he prefers regulated order to the messy disarray of liberty."

No assuming about it. Liberty is the last thing on John Suther's mind.
