Re: “Police left buried under a mountain of marijuana and red tape as weed laws change

first of all, this is NOT legalization, as there be NO regulations which (is) then the problem, we face. We must trust that this plant is not dangerous as all the evidence says it's not pigweed.In fact, it's pretty funny to see this prohibitionist dress in white bunny suits with signs of danger all around their workplace as they grind cannabis up. this they would have to do if it was pigweed, but, frankly is ridiculous to see police doing this stage showmanship practice. frankly, these fools need to be placed in nearus nut house The police have a prohibitionist disease so does this reporter, The facts are clear.The people want cannabis legal in all states. Its time to legalize and stop this parade of lies and arrest .its time to stop cannabis prohibition for liberty sake

Re: “D-11 sees legal threat over Confederate lesson

Damn Straight it wasn't about slavery !!! Perhaps only four out of the first few States which seceded referenced slavery within their declarations of secession, however the other nine made no such reference, they have joined their brother and sister States into the conflict only after Lincoln, The Tyrant, had decided to invade The South with his first 75,000 Yankee aggressors.
By the way, to all of you misguided and ill-informed snowflakes, don't confuse a legal departure of sovereign States from an overpowering and overreaching federal government with the actual war. Yes, some mentions may have been made about slavery regarding the issue of legal secession, the war in itself however has been waged by the North in order to reclaim its cash cow back into the Union. The South payed most of America's bills.

So yes, please keep laughing your asses off, but why stop there, laugh your entire ignorant and uneducated snowflake brainwashed mind out as well.

Deo Vindice, Confederate Mike.

Perhaps they can give lessons in the American Nazi movement as well. Not all of our history needs to be glorified. Some aspects
are shameful.

Re: “El Paso County Commissioners vote unanimously for district remapping

Plain and simple the apportionment of PCT 172 (Patty Jewett) and PCT 179 (Shooks Run) into District 5 where Monument & Palmer Lake's PCT's into District 3 is a political (affiliation) veiled ploy. It seeks to divide and divest a well established community voices of the downtown and west side/Manitou older neighborhood's voices and is in violation with CO Constitutional provisions that communities are to be held together, all for the sake of attempting to maintain 100% Republican majorities in the County. No other reason. Yes some have put up a lame argument that this is a low cost, low effort way of balancing growth of the north end of the county but that also divests District 4 as well. The Republican locals fear those voices challenging their absolute majorities in the County. The whole plan must be thrown away, the public must have ample input and time and a fair apportionment must be conducted devoid of self-serving partisan considerations. If not the communities should rise up and find a way to challenge the County Board in court and let us see how cheap their veiled designs come to pass.

Re: “Legally, it doesn't take much for a guest to stake a claim to your home

Well i need some advice and i hope someone can help me. My current boyfriend mom and dad own the home were they have let us live for almost 9 years rent free because they are his parents. We have two kids, but our problem is they think they can just show up when ever they want and start throwing stuff away that is in our yard without even asking if they can come at first. His dad comes and cuts our grass he will not allow us to cut it our selfs but he want even give us a day noticed to were we can pick up the kids toys so he can cut the grass, he just shows up when ever he wants and then gets pissed if they have a toy in yard but when he dose show up we go outside and pick them up if we are home and we have a cement slab in back yard and he just go on to it and throw what ever he wants a way We do not have any type of agrement at all on paper but all of the bills are in my name. They have also entered the home with out asking us. I woke up one day neaked in my bed to his dad just standing their staring at me so I cussed him all to piece. BUT THE PROBLEM IS THEY THINK THATS SICE WE LIVE HERE RENT FREE THEY CAN DO OR SAY WHAT EVER THEY WANT TO US. I CAN NOT TAKE IT ANYMORE, SO IF WE LIVE HERE RENT FREE DO WE STILL HAVE RIGHT AND IS THIS OKAY.

Re: “Local anti-war activists persist through decades of intimidation and repression

$523.9 billion is the Pentagon's Budget for 2017. Imagine what benefit a 1/2 trillion dollars might bring to Americans rather than "defense" contractors and a standing military presence throughout the world.

Only 4 guys showed up to question that? How dumb are WE THE PEOPLE to fall in line with this thinking?

Jeez, perhaps 9/11 was something we cooked up via back channels with Saudi Arabia, who fund 9 out of 10 Islamic terrorist deaths that occur. Thought that conspiracy theories were asinine but it starts adding up after a while.

Re: “Colorado GOP announces new flack

Does the use of the word "flack" in the headline indicate bias or hate? If so, Nat Stein needs to add this to his database of "hate events".

Dear R Wehner, who the heck are you?
Asking questions is now 'inappropriate' until someone has marched down to the mayors office for an appointment? If you are so well informed then answer the dudes question.
You are just rude without making a point.

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs turns to reserve fund for $3.4 million bailout of forecast error

I thought the reserves were for emergencies and unplanned disasters not a way to fund day to day operations because they used unrealistic growth projections. Then why did they wait a year to tell the public conveniently when it is time to begin planning the 2018 budget. Oops we made a mistake. Where is their accountability? Do they not have to report budget indicators on a monthly or at least quarterly summary and report it to the auditors? Who is getting dinged on their performance review for this? This is not transparency.

Mr. Gonzalez, Jr.

Would it enhance the feelings of competence the public has in local leadership if you had sought qualified and exact answers to your question prior to inserting yourself in City business and jumping into the process not having the knowledge required to do so?

Re: “UPDATE: Colorado Springs turns to reserve fund for $3.4 million bailout of forecast error

So, did this revenue shortfall occur in 2016 or 2017? If 2017, why did they not simply reduce how much money the TABOR retention would be for the city (6-3.4 = $2.6 million eligible to keep from TABOR excess that the residents approved for stormwater and NO need to take from the reserves)? Or am I confusing different things?
