Re: “Trump: Making America Xenophobic again

Bob:

" The Independent is the playbook and diary of the hopelessly arrogant and purposely misinformed."

Yet you read it. Regularly. And you engage with it. Does that make you "hopelessly arrogant and purposely misinformed"?

Or is it just old fashioned masochism for you?

Re: “AGs ask Congress to ease pot banking

Jay:

Agree. But it's a federal law, and getting anything through Congress is a long difficult task. Plus, I don't think there's much agreement on the GOP side for making things better for the MJ businesses. So I'm not holding my breath...

Re: “Time to De-Bruce

Mr. Wyman:

Since you are incensed by the CS Indy, perhaps you should stop reading it. Nobody is forcing you to pick up a copy and read it.

Re: “Approval voting, restaurant community, and a downtown convention center?

Rocket guy:

" If these out of state jokers take down TABOR this state will get taxed into oblivion just like illinois and filled with losers from out of state trying to escape paying 55% of there money to the tyrants. "

Where above did anyone say anything about repealing TABOR? Or did you just make that up?

In 1992, Democracy put TABOR in the Colorado Constitution in a referendum vote. If the voters so choose, they can take it out any time they choose. If you don't like that, you don't like the government. Deal with it. Voters made the call on TABOR, and they can change their minds.

Re: “Impeaching Trump is the right thing to do

RNelson:

"Impeach then... Bill W--Clinton lied under oath. You are an idiot. Too old to be so stupid."

Insults and name calling are the last resorts of those who cannot argue the facts. I'll take your advice though, since you're obviously much smarter than I.

Impeach him.

Now.

Re: “El Paso County value notices shock property owners, but there's more to them

Colorado property taxes are a bargain. Those who think they're getting ripped off should move to another state. You'll wish you could pay as little as you did in Colorado.

Only 2 states are cheaper than Colorado: Alabama and Hawaii.

Re: “City TOPS Rangers bring an increased presence in Open Spaces

TruB:

"Didn't the City have trouble watering parks and picking up garbage in the last few years?"

Yup. Also turned out 1/3 of the street lights. This is what happens when a community is governed by those who hate governments.
