Re: “Colorado Ethics Watch announces closure effective December 31

There's no such thing anymore as "ethics". One only has to look at the behavior of the man in the WH and his cronies and Cabinet members to see that! How sad that the days when decency and integrity mattered are gone forever.

Re: “Reader: The NRA is winning

The NRA has not "backed off". The BATFE has previously ruled that bump stocks are not illegal. The NRA has called for a BATFE review of that ruling. The only reason to review that ruling is to change it. They have stopped short of backing any particular bill regarding bump stocks. So any assertion that the NRA has backed off or trying to backpedal is horse manure

Re: “Reader: The NRA is winning

so now the right to bear arms is "god given"... the nra gun lobbyest have already backed away from the "restriction" part of their statement in regard to bump stocks. their chief lobbyest stated they only want more research done... almost had a few seconds where you thought they had a conscience and didn't only care about profits for the gun industry... I'm sure they want a few more million sold before they make a true decision.

I know the right wing fact free, propaganda only media is stating the vegas shooter was left wing but that has not been shown. might want to be sure before you make hateful ignorant hysterical statements...

Re: “Reader: The NRA is winning

We need to rid our country of the hateful ignorant hysterical leftists like the gunman in Vegas. You people are an utter cancer to our free and open society which will ALWAYS include the God given right to bear arms. Silencers have nothing to do with the vegas shooting yet another MSM democrat propaganda point. What gun law would have stopped stephen paddock? He purchased all his guns legally and passed baclground checks? You sick bastards didnt even wait until the bodies were cold. I hate you disgusting inhuman bastards you have no shame or empathy left in you. Keep drinking the democratic kool aid ralph. Thats what the left is a demonic evil cult.

Re: “Police are ticketing far more homeless campers than they once did

I've noticed that the Westside pioneer is leading the charge in calling them bums and suggesting that all services be cut off because the editor believes they will fix themselves. People acting like they are OK stepping over dead bodies in the streets and would rather the people they wish to discard would just die. I think people who do nothing and think their words are going to fix the problem are horrific. Most of you are a pay check away from sleeping in the park yourself.

Homeless people don't have garbage pick up. Many of you have never seen the dump sites you good upstanding citizens use around this town.

Re: “Springs man at the heart of federal lawsuit to upend the Electoral College

OK, this wouldn't really "upend the Electoral College". It would make a very minor modification to the way some states implement the Electoral College and it would have had NO AFFECT ON THE ELECTION. It would have allowed some of the electors who were forced to cast votes for Clinton to cast votes for Sanders instead. End result? A divided ticket for the Dems and Trump would have won by an even larger electoral margin.

The Constitution leaves it to the states to determine how electors are chosen. Nothing in the Constitution prohibits the states from placing restrictions on how the electors vote.

If we really wanted to effect change in the Electoral College, we would forbid states from adopting winner-take-all policies; however, it would take a constitutional amendment to do this. All but two states have these winner-take-all policies. These policies mean that a candidate need only win a plurality (not even a majority) of the vote in 11 states to become president. Those states are CA, TX, NY, FL, PA, IL, OH, MI, GA, NC, and NJ.

Re: “Reader: The NRA is winning

First of all, there was absolutely NOTHING stopping the Vegas gunman from buying suppressors and using them. Anyone who can legally own a firearm can legally own a suppressor. Furthermore, it is not hard to make improvised suppressors. The only change that the bill regarding suppressors would do is to reduce the length of the background check and remove the $200 fee.

The gunman used bump-stocks to make his firearms rapid fire. The NRA has supported restrictions on bump stocks.

The Supreme Court and the federal circuit courts have been very instrumental in controlling our firearm laws, and while you focus on the NRA boogeyman, the Second Amendment Foundation and Firearm Policy Coalition have been winning court case after court case. In fact, the two big Supreme Court cases, Heller and McDonald, were SAF cases, not NRA cases.

Re: “I-25 widening campaign raises $54K

So how is the money going to be spent? Will it be given to CDOT (which would go toward more planning/study) or does the PPRTA think they will be allowed by the state to widen that portion from Monument to the county line? Wow - widening a couple of miles just to the north of Monument will really help! Not one article on this ballot issue has said what the money will be used for.

Re: “Cocoa tea, a drink for Dominica

Thanks Ari and CS Independent for the pleasant surprise with an article about my little Caribbean island, Dominica. I have lived in CSprings since the 90s and have been reading the CS Indy all this time. My reggae band here will be hosting and jammin at a Dominica benefit dance at Rasta Pasta CS on Friday, October 13. Keep up the great work. I love cocoa tea.

Re: “I-25 widening campaign raises $54K

So how, exactly, is this 10 million dollars going to be spent? Is it going to be given to CDOT or is PPRTA going to get approval from them to do some work of their own. Not one article on this subject has provided any details on where the money is going.

Re: “Reader: Demand a return to "regular order"

Personally I see the division of this Country coming from the selfishness of this Country. Very few see the WE in We the People. All there seeing or are concerned with is the ME. They concern themselves in what they personally can get from Voting and our Government and are very disappointed when someone else gets something they dont want or think is needed. Campaigns use this to build a base and if that base is strong enough then they win elections. A Politician once said "ask not what our Country can do for you but ask what you can do for our Country" That no longer applies very few see whats best for all of us they only see themselves.Very few Politicians see that they represent all the people there only catering to there base. Voting could change things but good luck in getting folks to think of the masses and not just themselves.

LOL! Take that, CONO! Dispensaries increase market value, not the opposite, so no reason for neighborhood groups to oppose them!

Re: “Police are ticketing far more homeless campers than they once did

If the homeless community throw their trash in your trash can or dumpster you going to call the law? Are you going to threaten them, are you going to have them arrested if they throw their trash in YOUR trash containers? Complaining about the homeless trash, give them a dam place to throw it! The homeless also have normal, natural bodily functions just like any of you reading this. Why do think we don't? We're not allowed in any public places unless we're a paying customer and then your more likely to be told no. What are the homeless supposed to do? When your bodily functions go in motion are the homeless not allowed to function like human beings? Give us porta potties!!! Wasting tax payers money for the homeless to sit in jail learning absolutely no other skills instead getting angrier, more bitter, more rebellious against the City and the public/society leaving you the tax payer providing 3 hots and a cot instead of funding a positive outreach to help people work and house themselves instead of the tax payers housing them in jail, stop giving citations you know the homeless can not pay! (If the date on the citation is even readable). The law enforcement is only going to get a negative reaction without respect and start giving reason to earn a ticket. 3 hots and a cot just ain't the answer! Approve and fund the homeless work programs, provide inexpensive housing. Why is this so dam difficult!

Re: “Odyssey Gastropub announces plans for a second downtown spot

Sheila, it looks like there's more than a few such spots. There's a blog (a little out of date) that says over a third of the bars Bar Rescue has featured have closed (see http://www.barrescueupdates.com/p/all-bar-…).
Of course, that shouldn't be taken to say Bar Rescue caused these bars to close. If someone's not running a bar well, that's another problem.

Re: “Spring's fleet vehicles of vehicles is wearing out, but a stormwater fee could help

It might cost $500 to paint a car in Macao in the Domican Republic.

Maaco locally could probably to it for $429.00.

But why when you can buy a new one for $45,000.00?

It's only tax money which is in endless supply.
