Re: “Shovelhead Saloon

I must say the place has taken a turn for the worst. Don't rely on my comments though, I am not afraid to be wrong.

Re: “7 stories making headlines this week

The runner who is making us aware of plastic pollution should have shown how many bottles of fake spring water he drinks and tosses into the recycle bin, then run behind the recycle truck to see where it goes and what actually gets recycled. Imagine if everyone stopped buying bottled water and used the tap water which costs a fraction of the plastic kind. Imagine, I have made you aware of that, and I did not run one single step.
Nestle is one company that sucks water out of the ground anywhere they can, and an investment of $300 nets them $7000 in profit. It isn't oil, but it is being taken for almost nothing from aquifers and sold to idiots for a lot. Oh and plastic is made from petroleum and tanker trucks use oil to haul the water which weighs 8 pounds a gallon so the fuel use is higher than normal. Drilling rigs use oil as well.
Ask the mayor if gasoline stations were originally paid for by tax payer dollars or capitalists. And what is used to make the electricity that charge the batteries for these cars, coal or gas? I will mention that the vehicles are made from iron and plastic which involve the need for oil and what is an electric car lubricated with? Fairy dust? Nobody is using less fuel or emitting less carbon. And they use a lot of copper, too.
The other story about Trump allowing more oil companies to be emitting more, needs clarification that climate change/ global warming is being used, and successfully so, for government to be able to levy a tax, a carbon tax , carbon emissions are taxed by the ton. That is the only interest your government has in the whole affair- how to tax it and how much to charge-which they have calculated and are charging the emitters. What do you get? Idiot politicians and teachers lamenting the end of the world in 10 years which is scaring your little children half to death. Way to go, good parenting! And you thought it was about the planet! And also tell them the truth that cigarette smoke is harmless to non-smokers, and that is a fact. and vaping is not smoke but vapor, water vapor, it is not smoke at all. It is harmless to non-vapers and is only a nicotine delivery system. Nicotine is the most addicting substance on earth that humans can ingest, so how many of you are now addicted to second-hand smoke? None? That is correct, you got nothing from second-hand smoke except your clothes smell smokey from you being in a bar and drinking half the night.

Re: “Manitou father escapes death on Colorado mountainside

A self-absorbed not-quite -ready-for-a- Darwin-award applicant. The Indy would be normally trashing elk hunters but did not mention if they assisted or how. Figures.
And as hunter myself I know part of the money for licenses I buy goes to Search and Rescue but who is picking up the bill for this man's foolishness? Taxpayers. Any nimrod should know that the first thing you do after admitting you are lost is to build a fire and stay put. This guy lost track of his shoes and all for a picture of a sunset?! Self-absorbed.
Not surprised the Indy writes this up as him being some sort of brave hero, I am surprised that they could not figure how to blame Trump or did I miss that... and the Indy also has been carrying a column consisting of various person's tales worthy of ridicule not unlike the one who did something like this. Using one's head is NOT an admirable trait that one will learn is the Indy's stock and trade and that is all one can learn from it.
Take risks on your own dime. And if a search and rescue person had been killed during the search how would we all feel then? It would be a different story.
(I only read the Indy since I consider it the enemy's playbook...)

Re: “Latest Dem debate was much of the same

"Nobody is going to take your guns" sounds different now. And "buy back" sounds like "from my cold dead hands".
How could you not be embarrassed to belong to this insane party?

Re: “Don’t accept loss of local news

Getting your freedom of the press banned?! My my my. Of course most of what is printed is really only hate press, blaming Trump for all your ills even the music column jabs him at least once per week. Getting banned is a drag and I only read or scan this rag because I consider it the enemy's playbook and if I couldn't find it somewhere I would not go looking for it.
If you were not biased so badly you could almost double your readership. Or you could throw away a lot less paper by not having one at all and save the climate change planet green new deal LGBMcDLT.

Re: “Gov. Polis survives recall attempt

Pretty funny mex3.
Having a dictator is "progressive"? Where can I find this modern hip new dictionary? The voice of the people is now "executive orders" and you do not have to worry about voting anymore either. Now that The Bill of Rights is almost gutted what will you name your new country? Are my papers still valid? Why am I asking you suckers?
Wait til you are suddenly not in the majority, you once would have been protected from the bad ideas of a majority as does always happen but no more. That was the whole premise of The Bill of Rights you so recklessly pissed away. Miley Cyrus could be president in a few years and she will force you to look at her cooze everyday but that is what popular means!
If you had read the Federalist Papers you would know how hard the Framers worked to make you Independent and Free but you keep saying "democracy" and that is incorrect, or was, a "democracy" is what you have right before "dictatorship". "Executive Order" is another way of saying "dictate". If you disobey you will see the gun barrel you all hate so much. No longer is a warrant even required and tyranny exists in the judicial system.

Re: “Colorado Follows California's Lead in Implementing Zero Emission Vehicle Program

Where does this "zero emission" electricity come from? And California is on track to derail and it already has begun in earnest or ain't you news people heard? Or how is Germany's green deal working for them or have you not heard anything about that either?
Does it never end with you people? Executive orders are dictatorial but if Polis does it it is okay? If Trump does it then well we know. Hey do you remember when Los Angeles yanked all the trolleys off the streets? No you don't but they did, way back when some billionaires wanted everybody driving cars. It was back in the 1940s, the same time when the LAPD was the most corrupt police force in history. Follow that example California sets. Did youknow what state had the most Jim Crow laws? Go ahead and try to guess....

Re: “After a police shooting, what can be done to heal a community?

So something has to change but you do not have a clue as to what that is??? You wrote about how your own child having a notion at a young age how white men screw up lives of others especially blacks! And you claim she came up with that on her own... What has to change is you. Parents such as yourself do so much damage and take no blame and on and on it goes. You are only fooling yourself.
