Re: “Reader: Another civics lesson, via Obama-era politics

Funny though even with all the problems and the massive amount of hours trying to kill it, repeal it and defund it no one has come up with a damn thing thats better.

Re: “Reader: "Make America a Democracy again"

This is off-subject, but I can't find the letters that appear in the May 24th issue of the Indy itself. It used to be that those letters could be found and discussed here online. Now, the only place I can find those letters is to go to the digital issue, and as near as I can figure, there is no place for discussion there either. Any suggestions?

Re: “Reader: "Make America a Democracy again"

Not sure Elaine knows what an oligarchy is, or the difference between a representative democracy and a republic.

Re: “Reader: "Make America a Democracy again"

No don it isnt pushed upon you any more than it is pushed upon us. fact is change is good when it helps the general population, and not so good when it effects just a specific income slot. sure you will always have people that take advantage of the system but you dont go and mess over the hard working american tax payers to get at these people.

here is one we all know.........The needs of the many out weight the needs of the few.

Re: “Reader: Free speech is for everyone except Christians

This is the insipid garbage CSIndy insists on publishing? And you wonder why this country is screwed.

Re: “Reader: Free speech is for everyone except Christians

Jim Harper you nothing but an overgrown child that never got disciplined. Ask Jack Phillips up in Denver, he choose to refuse service to people that he did not agree with based on faith. He got punished by the state. They have yet to demand a Conservative Christian pastor to marry a couple...but that is coming. You can me a liar, but you guys more so in order to impose your childish and dare I say wicked and vile agenda on the of rest of us.

Re: “Reader: "Make America a Democracy again"

Progressives have been doing a better job at phrases that Conservatives have...and done it much longer. Elanie was projecting...not necessary lying.

Re: “Reader: "Make America a Democracy again"

Don sounds like a result of the 'moral majority' who has spent years claiming liberals are all evil.
Conservatives love to use phrases that are actually describing themselves. Elaine ain't lying.

"Every day the Media makes up a new story..." George Bernard Shaw once observed, the punishment for being a liar is not that no one will believe you, but you cannot believe anyone else.

Re: “Everybody bikes, or can

What a fabulous read, you nailed it!

I look forward to many rides like you described and truly, there is nothing like experiencing the beauty of Colorado Spring from the seat of your bike, at a very human speed.

Pedal On!

Re: “Reader: "Make America a Democracy again"

Elaine, you just projecting the hate and bully tactics onto us. You just don't want to push back on your goals to fundamentally transform America. The real Oligarchy are those who push the progressive agenda on those who oppose it...especially unaccountable judges and those who want us to affirm the sins that the progressives what to impose on people like me who oppose it. The left has been good at projecting their evil on their enemies.

Re: “Long live the landline

The FCC should remove the universal access fee. It has been since 1996 and meant to ensure all parts of the US have internet access. That should have been accomplished by now. I'd like a landline for emergencies. Remember back when the phone companies were going to allow a home phone # that rang in your house and you'd be able to pick up your cell and leave home with your home phone. Most of these internet phones all go out if the electric or internet goes down. A landline had a dial tone even in a blackout.

Re: “Region must be proactive on transportation, and here's how to do it

I have been saying for years that a continuous light rail from the Springs to Denver, even Ft. Collins, would be huge. Think of concerts, events, games, connecting to UnionStation, also with a connection to the airport. More jobs, less I25 congestion. It'd be great for University students to commute to Denver, too.

Re: “Reader: Free speech is for everyone except Christians

Yes Clearly seeing it With the freedom comes responsibility. You cant yell fire in crowded room. It hurts others. Also you should not talk about your religion and expect respect if your not willing to here others and afford them the same respect. Freedom of speech is granted to all of us not just those that claim to be Christian for there own benefit.

Re: “Region must be proactive on transportation, and here's how to do it

Gee wiz. "like solving obesity with a bigger set of pants". We need to stop the backwards thinking of the well-intentioned older generation which refuses to consider the innovations of the newer age. Wasting millions of dollars on an infrastructure which is already outdated- bad, bad idea, but the norm for COS. How about a common sense idea like a light-rail? How about actually moving towards an awesome solution to the problem? How about recognizing Denver and the region as one of the fastest growing areas of the country, and moving to address the issue like a modern city would? Gee wiz the leadership and influence of this area are simply as backwards as can be.
