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: “The Side Door music space makes its low-key debut in former Blue Star spot

Music coming soon to some place not quite open... fun has been delayed but promised at a later date.
Colorado Springs has always in my experience been a fairly miserable place for live music and its getting worse than ever. Obviously the wanting to book acts that would play Denver means there is really no local musicians that can hold anyone's interest. And starting at 7PM and done at 11 is for schoolkids. Now we also have most bars closing at 12 or earlier, no smoking, poorly trained bartenders, karaoke listed as live music, cliquish open mics, rehearsed "jam sessions" but really no live music except Friday and Saturday except for the odd late afternoon last minute drum circles. I laughed awhile back reading here how some developer wanted to make this town another Austin Texas! What? 200 bands a night every night all over the city?! And the ballpark downtown are what you is and ain't what you're not...

Re: “An indicted journalist reflects on conspiracy in today's America

Insulting people for having their own opinion John is called "bigotry".
The Indy and its fans thecould rival any group that promotes hating of someone. Anti-Trump language is no different from KKK etc. How does it feel to be so filled with contempt for half of your fellow citizens?

Re: “Reader: Clean energy is too important for our future to give to capitalists

Free solar! Sit in the sun all day. Free Lunar once a mumph...
Government regulates everything and you are complaining government is doing nothing? Are you drunk or a shill? Capitalists invest in something that will turn a profit. Government invests your money in losers.
Do not overlook the fact solar requires batteries. Batteries are hazardous but sunlight is only for so many hours then it gets dark so batteries take over. Without batteries solar is a novelty and only runs a light bulb during daytime.
If people had not been so misinformed energy could be had from nuclear power. You are stuck with coal and gas for the duration, If you wish you are free to invest in solar or wind if you think it will blow all day and night. Get government out the way and out of your head...

Governmnet has three jobs collect tax, protect our borders and PROTECT OUR RIGHTS. They have one down to a tee and do not care about the last one. Borders are in the hands of leftists.

Re: “Ron Stallworth on BlacKkKlansman, Trump, and our legacy of racism

Another 'stir the anti-white anti-Trump cauldron of soup' that The Independent has the secret recipe for. Inferring a slogan's "meaning" is not news and obviously was not researched and would be a waste of time anyway. Interviewing no more than one person for a dubious story is exactly what makes it dubious in the first place. Anti-Trump stories are just that and crimes committed allegedly by Trump supporters have turned out to be just the opposite. The Independent must have taken a few days off to miss that.
A Colorado Springs Police detective in reference to describing the President as that racist piece of shit is not a quality one likes to have on a force that rules your city by force and choice. He offered up no evidence to back up that comment, a phrase that could have been turned with more eloquent language. But the story does make way for some confusion as it supposedly took place in the 1970s. I was somewhat lost but I read what I read and it should be printed but not on paper but a cave wall perhaps.

the case of Devin Turrell ... Who are the eyewitnesses that will testify under oath to the allegations that were made by the, and I cannot say "victim", persons involved? The author? Was she there? Does she see the whole story as printed in this little paper as honest or as the biased hogwash as it was presented? Any stranger of any color invades my home at night unannounced will be dealt with and hopefully with something more substantial than a piece of firewood. Those of us who have ever been in a violent struggle with someone know there is no time name-calling will be uttered, thought of or used. That is the stuff of movies. (red flag alert). The will to survive takes over. And only a fool would enter a stranger's home at night or a criminal using an' invite' as an excuse. Only the intruder knows what his intentions are.

This column continually judges people based on skin color which is or can be turning us back in time and for whatever reason it can do nobody any good. Identifying skin color in news articles is a thing of the past. Long past. Bring that practice back at your own risk and that is not a threat, the risk is being put out of your chosen profession and being labelled "racist".

Stallworth says"...imagine what a nation of like-minded individuals can accomplish.- Okay I will, they can follow a leader like Adolph Hitler. I trust that intelligent people know better than to fall into the trap of such misleading statements and true goodness is found only in one's heart not in a nation's mind. Police do not represent everyone nor do they protect society. Historically police are the servants and protectors of would-be tyrants. Police enforce the laws that would-be tyrants decree acting under the guise of being representatives of The People. "Accomplish" is not exclusive to meaning a good outcome. They'll say "this is what the people want" but do their damnedest to make jury nullification a secret from an acting jury and from potential jurors and is contrary to the Natural Law Tradition. But it is how bad laws are exposed and struck down. The Bill of Rights is based on Natural Law Tradition and is in no way a gift or promised from government, they all take an oath to defend the Rights which is the last thing on their minds. Tricking citizens out of exercising their Rights is absolutely in no way protecting, preserving or defending those Rights.

Publications such as this one have become too common and have endowed themselves with a false sense of power of being holders of truth. The shock they find when that power turns out to be nothing more than vapor, such as the failure to even realize that anyone can spray paint a swastika on a wall, anyone. A swastika is meaningless, especially in that form but when like-minded individuals all decide to spraypaint walls with swastikas they have 'accomplished' something.
Police need criminals so that they can stay in business. Being funded by tax payers makes them a liability. To see them as honest and incapable of lying is being blind or living in fear of them. Laws do nothing to stop crime, laws only provide for punishments and paychecks. To claim to have stopped 2 plans of cross burnings is the same as if I claim to have saved many lives because I have stopped my vehicle at red lights and stop signs. My claim has more validity than the other. Were the property owners or residents advised a cross burning had been thwarted and were they reminded of their inalienable Right of self-defense or was a routine patrol organized? I doubt it.

It is the individual who thinks for himself that is what The Declaration of Independence confers but it becomes meaningless when the author Thomas Jefferson is dismissed out of hand because he had slaves. That sort of thinking is the product of public education, which is almost none, and public school administrators need constant scrutiny not praise especially praise simply for being Black. I give them D- or F grades across the board. The love of high pay not teaching is what draws them.
The media is a tool of government and obvious this media was never told that fact and do exactly what they are told to do. Calling yourselves 'The Independent' is contradictory when it is filled with calls to action for self-governing Independent citizens to all become like-minded and judge others based on skin color. We are free to act in any manner as long as it does not harm or take away the Freedom of someone else.
Ponder the truthfulness in the adage that there is no such thing as bad publicity. It is wise to know beforehand what will fall on you when you shake a tree. The writer here assumes she is in possession of truth and thinking she is 'shaming' others into goodness is a mistake that is only realized when it is too late, but never envisioned.
The author must certainly know how many fires police prevented on behalf of Ramona Africa...

Re: “Reader: We have a Russian agent for president

Ken Staples... perhaps if you wish upon a star your dreams will come true... Not very likely as that is just some children's tale which you might graduate up to that level someday. Good luck in 1st grade this year!
