Re: “Old St. Francis Hospital assessed value soars from $50,000 to $2 million following report

Hmm, sounds a lot like the downtown land exchange between the city and the Jenkins clan, where land values were lowered because of a supposed 'cleanup'. I estimate the city has helped the Jenkins clan get at least $2 million in tax deductions in two deals. Ka-ching!

Re: “Watchdogs criticize Trump's easing of ban on 'politicking from the pulpit'

Deb Walker misstates the 1st Amendment, which does NOT call for the "separation between church and state." I recommend she read the 1st Amendment and quote it properly. Her statement is the standard incorrect statement made by those who normally have issues with religious freedom.

Spiritual Law is important in the History of Civilization....................some Politicians find it annoying and a hindrance
to Governments.......................Trump did the what is necessary, remove legal assertions from Officials that Religious
Communities should not have a voice in public affairs .

God Bless Trump !

Re: “KRCC's cancelled "Wish We Were Here" radio show honored with Edward R. Murrow Award

Way to go Tammy Terwelp! You've made so many "tremendous" decisions at KRCC as of late. So many, in fact, that I no longer support you folks...

The Universe certainly has a sense of humor about balance and handling injustice.

Re: “Lamborn votes 'yes' on GOP health care bill as constituents storm local office

There may be a small bit of satisfaction is seeing many of the Trump supporters get their just payback by losing their own health insurance, there is no satisfaction at all in the realization that nearly half of US voters chose a candidate who was willing to lead this fight against minorities, immigrants, women, the LGBTQ, the elderly, the poor and even the middle class. Whether you're a Bernie, Hillary, or Jill Stein supporter, the message is clear: once a candidate is chosen, we ALL need to get behind and support that person.

Ditto what Daisy said, Griffin. I regret missing the opening last night but looks like I can still get a psychic haircut at brilliant.

Re: “Colorado State Senate votes against re-appointment of lesbian Civil Rights Commission chair

As if her sexual orientation mattered. Her activism is the sticking point.

Re: “Colorado State Senate votes against re-appointment of lesbian Civil Rights Commission chair

You mean Republicans voted AGAINST this woman. Their abject hatred for anyone who is not a straight, rich, white, gun-toting male is on full display with this vote!

Re: “Lamborn votes 'yes' on GOP health care bill as constituents storm local office

What does that say about the people who live in his District? Not much. They continue to keep voting him into office, over and over, and over again. So, if they lose their healthcare coverage, that's on THEM! They will have gotten what THEY wanted and deserve! They have always known where he stands and on which side he votes. Too bad, so sad. I for one, won't be shedding any tears for them.

Re: “Lamborn votes 'yes' on GOP health care bill as constituents storm local office

For those who voted for Drumpf and Lamborn, you're getting exactly what you wanted and what you deserve. If you lose your healthcare, you'll have no one to blame BUT YOURSELVES. They made it VERY clear where they stood on this issue; and the fact that they celebrated afterwards is just downright sickening! That you think they care about YOU is sad; because they don't; just themselves. And they care about women least of all. There were 13 Republicans who worked on this Bill...ALL old, white men; not ONE woman on the committee and it shows in the Bill! They won't even pay for contraception for women, but WILL pay for Viagra for men! Who do they think gets women pregnant? The Easter Bunny? I guess they expect them to stay at home and be pregnant for their entire lives. The other group taking a big hit, the elderly of course....SAD!

Good luck trying to vote him out. He was almost ousted during last years county convention, but stomped his opponents in the primary and the general elections. He'll only be out of office if he decide to leave or the Republican leadership wants him out.

Re: “Mayor John Suthers warns against 'sanctuary city' policy, Green party pushes ahead

Mr. Suthers should know that ICE can come in to *any* part of the nation, period. There is *no* "sanctuary" from that.

What right-wing racists want is to appropriate city and state resources to carry out a federal function. That is the kind of thing "conservatives" have called an "unfunded mandate" on other issues. But not on this.

It is destructive because this war on law-abiding immigrants will increase crime because crimes won't be reported by those who fear police will reported them to ICE.

Besides, the U.S. farm policies and NAFTA *created* the illegal immigration problem by wrecking the livelihood of millions of Latin Americans. See "How NAFTA and Farm Policy Subsidies Created the Illegal Immigration Problem"
