Re: “Sen. Cory Gardner's staff may have tried to "heat out" protesters

More left-wing-nut bullshit ala Drudge and Breitbart on the right. How could Cory Gardner confront and lock protesters in a room in his Denver office and turn up the heat, when he was 2,000 miles away in Washington, DC? *PROUD* Democrats? You should be ashamed for behaving like InfoWars. NOTE: According to real news reports: the A/C in the office lobby appeared to be off. Nobody was locked in. Folks came and went as they wished. Please stop printing BS. You make us look silly and hurt our cause.

Re: “Springs firefighters look to petition a collective bargaining measure

People must understand that the Koch Bros are the main financiers of the GOP. Charles and David Koch have a burning hatred of all unions, especially unions of government employees. Collective bargaining of public employee unions is about the one thing they hate the most. Recall how they backed Scott Walker for Governor in WISC who later changed WISC law to end collective bargaining by WISC public employees.

It was the Kochs who financed Mayor Steve Botch who promptly paid them back by firing city auto mechanics and contracting out that work to a British firm (Serco) that employs city councilor Andy Pico.

You can bet Mayor Struthers and GOP in this town will fight to the death against collective bargaining by public employees; they have to earn their blood money from the Kochs.

When Mayor Botch did the deed on our auto mechanics I warned you that our fire and police unions would get screwed over too. Well, here it comes...

If our residents expect a safe and well functioning city then we have to pay for it, and that means slightly higher taxes and killing the deadly TABOR laws.

Re: “Colorado Springs firefighters: Let's negotiate a contract.

"While police have gotten the ear of Mayor John Suthers about their pay issues, and he's working to find ways to increase their pay, firefighters' compensation hasn't reached priority status."

"Hasn't reached priority status." For shame.

These are the men and women who saved lives and homes during the Waldo Canyon Fire. They showed up for the Planned Parenthood shooting and distinguished themselves.

I know. This is an anti-tax, anti-government community. But when you disrespect, ignore, and underpay your first responders, the good people who serve this community may go away. That's how it works.

But then again, after all, they haven't "reached priority status." Sadly.

The nerve of this guy who set the temperature on 90 degrees with a baby inside. That's like leaving a child in a car with the windows up. He is a serious motherfucker. Thank you for the PEACEFUL demonstration that is part of our democracy. He will burn in hell for his actions.

Re: “Marijuana tax pays off for Pueblo high school seniors in scholarship program

Honestly, that will pay for 1/25th of in-state college tuition at a state college. Not really that impressive.

Re: “The tick and the time bomb

I am here to give my testimony about Dr Ose who helped me.. i want to inform the public how i was cured from (HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS) by Dr Ose, i visited different hospital but they gave me list of drugs like Famvir, Zovirax, and Valtrex which is very expensive to treat the symptoms and never cured me. I was browsing through the Internet searching for remedy on HERPES and i saw comment of people talking about how Dr Ose cured them. when i contacted him he gave me hope and send a Herbal medicine to me that i took for just 2 weeks and it seriously worked for me, my HERPES result came out negative. I am so happy as i am sharing this testimony. My advice to you all who thinks that there is no cure for herpes that is Not true just contact him and get cure from Dr Ose healing spell cure of all kinds of sickness you may have. Remember delay in treatment leads to death.. email Droseherbalhome@gmail.com or call him on 08112831294....

Re: “Disabled people to Cory Gardner: Our survival depends on Medicaid

Enough of the wild hysteria! This plan would NOT affect the people depicted in this lying hatchet piece. It might affect able bodied people who choose not to work, but they need affecting. Senator Gardner, please vote YES.

Re: “Springs firefighters look to petition a collective bargaining measure

$ 70,000 for a Firefighter who makes mostly Medical Alarms (5 % are actual Fire Alarms) should be allocated
to the Memorial Hospital or Obamacare ?

Taxpayers aren't getting Fire Protection, they are paying for Healthcare !
