Re: “Reader: It's time to push back

Its silly to blame the ACLU for the homeless problems in our community. All they are saying is that laws that criminalize homelessness are not a solution. For what it costs tax payers to incarcerate homeless people for the crimes they commit, say like sleeping in a park overnight, the community could build plenty of affordable housing units. Its just that city and county governments dont want to address or spend money on affordable housing; thus, our current situation exists. Its a lot easier to blame people for their homeless state and to pass laws criminalizing homelessness than it is to step up and provide leadership on housing. The ACLU is trying to push governments to take the harder route, and that is what is needed to make a dent in the homeless problem. I mean, the City for Champions raised how many millions to build an Olympic Museum but not one dime for affordable housing to accommodate the poor people displaced by Urban Renewal? We bring this on ourselves and it is our leaders who are failing us, not the ACLU or homeless people themselves.

Re: “John McCain was a hero, but no angel

While I often disagreed with his hawkish views, and definitely with his decision to launch the lunatic Palin, Sen. McCain had his moments. He stood up to the woman who was getting ready to call Pres. Obama a racist name, and he pushed back against the administration bulldozer to bury Obamacare without a replacement plan. At times he could do the right thing! I wish he was still with us for the Kavanaugh hearings, Ill bet John McCain would have 2nd thoughts about allowing a man implicated in a criminal violation of election law, to make an appt. to the Supreme Ct. Most Republicans are such hypocrites that they dont care about how bad this looks, or how bad it will be if Kavanaugh gets to cast a deciding vote on the Russia scandal......

Re: “Reader: Manage the deer properly

Thank you, Deborah. The culling plan is horrendous. We need to co-exist with wildlife and change practices that cause them to congregate in urban and suburban areas. Much better that killing wild animals.....

Re: “Reader: Our democracy has become a reality show

Seriously Frank, you Trumpians are all so deluded, it doesnt take much to make you buy into Reality Show rhetoric and facts. Oh, #9 is completely bogus. Like Trump, You forgot to mention the $1.4 Trillion deficit created by the Republicans tax cut plan after rich millionaires got their tax cuts.
Oh well, no worries we can just cut the domestic budget and take that out of some welfare mothers food stamps or some homeless guys free health care at a free clinic....... or just burn more coal as theres no funds to promote renewable sources of energy and save the climate.
The Trump admin is like Faux News moving right into the White House, or is it the National Inquirer? Either way, only fake news out of those outlets, but then, thats what the deluded Trump faithful want......

Re: “Cog Railway tax break should get voter scrutiny, Manitou Springs residents say

Sickening the lengths that the Broadmoor will go to to get their own way and rip off the communities that have supported them over the years. This sounds like blackmail to me, and Anshutz and Damioli have Manitou over a barrel. This is just how the Broadmoor does business anymore, SAD...... they are all about themselves and using the community to enrich themselves even further. Look at the mess they have made at 7 Falls, running their shuttle buses in Chey Canon so they can pack it full of tourists for their own profit. They simply dont care how their commercial activities impact the local community, they just do what they want.....

Re: “Vittles for Vests makes it easy — and delicious — to equip cops

Seems to me that police and the military get much, much more than their fair share of tax dollars, so uh no, I dont want to contribute..... Save this kind of stuff for health care and schools, they are perennially shortchanged while police get all the toys the want....,

Re: “El Paso County coroner reconsiders sealing autopsy reports in deputy's death

It doesnt sound to me like the police knew what they were doing..... they seem to have botched the whole operation, resulting in the serious injury to the bystander and the death of the deputy. The failure of these police depts. to protect her husband better must really cause the widow grief, but the public has a right to know......
