Re: “Dreamers target Doug Lamborn

If this Congressman does anything that smacks of amnesty; he is going to kill his own chances of surviving his primary with 4? think thats the number we are up to; opponents. At least 2 of them; do not support amnesty at all.

The DACA kids getting amnesty and without any other changes in our immigration laws; mean we will be importing millions more of their relatives once they have US citizensship. The Dreamers are a much bigger group; then the 700000 existing DACA kids; so they would be bringing in many millions more of their relatives. Each illegal Mexican who gets amnesty brings in over 6 of their family mambers and that would include their parents who brought them here to do just that. That means in 10 years; we will have millions more through chain migration and most of them will not even bother to learn English or assimulate as we make it so easy for them to be here; legally or illegally.

Trump got elected due to this issue and its time we put enforcement first and if Congressman Lamborn doesnt get that; he can be easily replaced.

NO amnesty. NO work permits. NO nothing but deportation.

Re: “Mikey Weinstein talks “fighting words” and the military’s religious oppression in the Trump era

Interesting that the religious nuts use insults and threats to express their ideology, but those opposed to their attempt to force all Americans to their altars use reason to express their beliefs.
And they get nowhere, thanks to the last 50 plus or minus years of propagandizing from the people who believe that they and they alone know what is good for the country and what will happen to us when we die.
And they base their beliefs on a book revised and re-written so many times over the centuries that it's barely recognized as a sort of similar text. Like reading a science book called Green Eggs and Ham and believing it's the word of a god.
People might need their bankies to get through life, but it would be nice if they stopped asking the rest of us to chew on the same mangled corners of it as they do.

Re: “Dreamers target Doug Lamborn

This is the new game they are playing. If you don't agree with them, you don't understand. What they don't understand is DACA is gone.

Democrats, MSM, every faculty member at any university in the country fighting to the death for illegal aliens? they put a warm and fuzzy name on it "Dreamers." and no one seem to wonder why? future voters? can you imagine the Democrats ever being this interested or motivated in issues involving citizens! There is an estimated 800,000 DACA recipients in the US. That is 800,000 jobs American Citizens don't have or will be in competition for.

The MSM and Democrats would have us believe that all 800 thousand are not taking jobs Americans want (we've heard that lie for many years now.) This is another falsehood told to the American people. Democrats have actually changed the language. It's not illegal alien its "Immigrant." (like the lie there just 'Kids") there not all picking strawberries they take great Jobs. Good enough jobs to buy homes put their kids through college.Why must the citizens of our country have competition for jobs, education in their own country from foreign nationals? Now Democrats and illegal alien activists admit DACA recipients have great jobs,are buying homes, paying taxes.

The GOAL, motivation (Democrats just haven't figured this out yet) is for the American citizens to be employed, sending their kids to college, buying homes and paying taxes. It's not the responsibility of the citizens of this country to support, educate citizens from other country's.Deportation will save jobs and decrease the BILLIONS we spend on illegal aliens.

Some" of the costs associated with illegal immigration......Dollars and Blood.

*The cost of educating illegal aliens children is staggering. From K-12 it costs taxpayers $122,000 for EACH illegal alien student.

*Now city, and state officials are appropriating millions of taxpayer dollars for legal fees to to file law suits and in defense of illegal aliens being deported.

*2012 illegal aliens sent home $62 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin. This is why Mexico is getting involved in our politics.

*30% percent of all Federal Prison inmates are illegal aliens. Does not include local jails and State Prisons. At $21,000 per year expense per inmate in Federal Prison---U do the math.

*$3Million Dollars a DAY is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens, I repeat 3 MILLION a DAY to process Illegals in the Criminal justice system.

*$2.2Billion dollars a year is spent on food assistance programs such as SNAP (food stamps),WIC, & free school lunches.

There is also an incredible public safety issues.

Shattered Dreams American citizen style.

Re: “Colorado electors strike a deal with Secretary of State

There is no U. S. Constitutional right allowing Electors to vote any way other than directed under their respective state laws. States have the absolute last word as to how their Electors vote, as spelled out in Article II Section 1 of the Constitution. Most states have passed state laws requiring them to follow the election returns. A few have not. The ability of any Elector to cast their vote for president is solely determined by applicable state law.

Re: “AFP donates to committee opposing Colorado Springs' stormwater ballot measure

Invest COS, the "vote yes" committee, has raised $311,290. The Koch brothers contributed $15,000. So . . . why are the whiners whining about the Koch brothers helping the financially challenged underdogs in this contest between the citizens and the bad dog developers and their political allies?

Re: “AFP donates to committee opposing Colorado Springs' stormwater ballot measure

Please research Walter Burien and CAFR before casting a ballot for that "Fee". The systems of governance (municipal corporations) have been lying to the populace about taxation for way too long. The CAFR reports all the commerce and investments involved.

Re: “Colorado electors strike a deal with Secretary of State

I wonder what you all would do if you found out the Constitution was not a truly lawful document per the Articles of Confederation-Article XIII? At least three state-republics did not want to ratify it, yet were forced to.

Re: “Cake discrimination case heats up

When I first got to Colorado Springs in January of 1981 and entered the doorway of many a local (not franchise) business, I saw a sign above the door on the inside stating: "We Reserve the Right to Refuse Service to Anyone". Being born/raised on Lincoln, Nebraska, I had never seen such a sign before. It seems at that time a business could decide who to contract with and who not to contract with. It also seems those days of "discrimination", which everyone exercises every day in all their decisions, are supposed to be over, regardless of perspective. The baker in the above SCOTUS case was only refusing to do a specific cake for a sodomite couple. They could have bought one already made and had others do their special msg, yet didn't. They got "offended" over it and filed a complaint. This "discrimination" manure seems to only flow one way, and it is against YHVH/Yahweh/Yeshua/Jesus. The best option for Romans 10:9 born-again followers of Yeshua/Jesus is to form a Pure Trust Organization, so they are not under statutory control (the main problem of governance), and do business out of that instead of forming a corporation with the STATE OF Secretary of STATE.

Re: “AFP donates to committee opposing Colorado Springs' stormwater ballot measure

The 'opposition' is the citizens who are fed up with govt taking our money in taxes and fees and then redistributing it to their political allies who are undermining our personal liberties, those liberties guaranteed to us by the Constitution. I wonder if you know just what the Koch Brothers are doing in the political playing field with THEIR OWN money. In supporting anti-progressive/socialist schemes, they are doing all in their power to see that politicians, judges, and others in positions of leadership uphold the Constitution. And, BTW, the Koch's donated zero dollars to Trump's campaign because they don't like him any more than you do.

Re: “AFP donates to committee opposing Colorado Springs' stormwater ballot measure

The person running the fund works for AFP so no surprise. I don't like the wording of this tax bUT let's understand that the 'opposition' is still a GOP lobby group.

In that case, refund the excess profit to everyone who got a permit or whatever during that period. Donating to charity is not a legitimate function of govt.

Re: “AFP donates to committee opposing Colorado Springs' stormwater ballot measure

"holding the developers accountable is necessary but won't happen any time soon.."

So how in the world can you justify throwing your money at the problem before accountability is established? It's like writing a blank check to your drug-addict uncle--before he's even checked himself into rehab.

Re: “AFP donates to committee opposing Colorado Springs' stormwater ballot measure

certainly agree that developers have long been the problem for this city... just don't want to hurt the city in an attempt to call out the developers. holding the developers accountable is necessary but won't happen any time soon because rich people use legal methods to delay outcomes. we need stormwater dealt with now.

Re: “Regional Building Department shells out nearly $1 million to projects and causes

It is frustrating that individuals are drawing a false relationship between Regional Building Department funds, and the excess amounts that have been accumulated there, and the City's revenue stream, with a particular emphasis on Stormwater.

The Regional Building Department IS NOT a department of the City of Colorado Springs and does not fall under the City's leadership or direction. City funds and Regional Building Department funds are not tied together in any way - excess revenue at the Regional Building Department cannot be shared with the City's General Fund and the opposite is also true.

I get it: some people will oppose 2A. But to base that opposition on the assumption that the Regional Building Department's excess funds could be used by the City for any purpose, to include Stormwater, is a misunderstanding of how funds are allocated and used by different agencies within the Pikes Peak Region.
