Re: “Springs fleet contractor, Serco, sues the city — again

We always hear that privatised services save money but it has been my observation that the opposite is often true. The profit motive always ends up tipping the scales. However in this case, I know that companies need to know that this city rarely jumps into something like this with both feet. So be careful how much blood you put into future business with them.

Re: “Divisions in El Paso County Democratic Party revealed in defections and drama

If the last election told us anything it's that what we have been doing doesn't work as well as we thought. So we can keep doing the same thing and continue to lose or we can step outside the box and try something new. I'm up for something new and I believe that new blood never hurts as long as they also listen to experience.

Re: “Reader: I'm fed up with the hate being spewed at the symbols of our history

I find it interesting that many people from the south call the civil war the war of northern aggression. Who attacked who at Fort Sumter? If you guessed the North you need to go back to school. As far as old monuments are concerned, if the powers that be decide that getting rid of old symbols of rebellion will help calm people's obsessions with that rebellion I say melt them all down. Their is not one civil war statue that is worth someone's life. The war is over, get over it.

Re: “Reader: Mr. Lamborn, this downright cruel and unjust

Well said! It seems to me that I remember a day after Waldo Canyon burned when Barak Obama took the time to come to see the damage and offer help. He has done nothing but be everything we want a president to be and in return from you all we get is partisan rhetoric and mean spirited comments that neither elevate discussion nor help in any fashion to bring us together as a nation. You are a pathetic excuse for a representative. I can't wait to see you out of Congress.

Re: “Reader: The Academy Chapel is a beloved national monument, you crazies

The church is a building that has become a symbol for the Air Force Academy kind of like the empire state building is a symbol for New York City. I personally would hate to see anything happen to it not because it's a church but because I always thought of it as being interesting. As far as the Garden of the Gods is concerned, I would hate to see anything happen to it as well. To be honest these discussions regarding what is meaningful from a religious stand point are pointless and only add to the void that exists between us. I would like to think that we all could find something more productive to do with our time then to argue about such trivial issues.

Re: “Time has come for Trump's revolution, and reflections on a Trump presidency

America has been conned by the PT Barnum of our time. Promising both sides they will get what they want is the mantra of a true huxter and many in this country fell for it hook line and sinker. Now as he pushes an agenda that endangers everything this country stands for as he sweetens the flow of cash back to the 1% he is a member of. How can anyone even think this man is honest on any level when he has spent his whole life cheating and disenfranchising thousands of people to amass his ill gotten fortune. Now to keep prying eyes from reporting the depth of his corruption he holds the press and media at arms length while pumping lies out at a rate that is staggering to anyone who still has a sense of what is ethical and good. Yeah I got the message that you don't like Hillary but to put this mentally ill bag of wind in charge of the nuclear codes is nothing short of suicide.

Re: “Rep. Lamborn won't hold town halls

To be on Lamborn's list of approved voters one must be GOP, have contributed to his campaign of terror and must not be angry about any of the mindless legislation he either fostered or rubberstamped. He knows in his heart of hearts that the GOP majority of the CS area will undoubtedly continue to vote against their own self interest to keep his corrupt keaster in office until the cows come home.
